RE: [nsp] 12.2T and 4500/4700?

Date: Wed Feb 27 2002 - 21:15:38 EST

Hmmm, I would be a little ticked myself if I was waiting for a feature and
then when it is released it's not available for my platform. They do make
it pretty clear in the announcment, however, that support for 12.2 cannot be
guaranteed due to memory restrictions in the 4500 chassis. I guess they
figured that since the same image runs on the 4500M and the 4700, there was
no sense in releasing a 12.2 image that wouldn't run on the 4500M.

Actually, the 4500M and 4700M are only end-of-sale, not end-of-life yet.

On the other hand, you're right, the end-of-sale text specifically says
"12.2 main line" will be supported, and nothing about 12.2T.

Though, there *was* support for the 4500/4700 in 12.2(2)T, which is now
discontinued without notice.

Thanks once again to Cisco. Due to ever-delayed IPv6 rollout, they
finally managed to be so late with usable IPv6 releases that my test bed
routers for customer IPv6 aggregation are no longer supported. Damn.

Seriously annoyed,
