In our new 6513E chassis we plan to run Sup720 cards. This will be replacing our existing 6509 Sup2 setup in production. My questions are
What current IOS version should I run on the Sup720 ? I would like to support SSH. The chassis will be populated with a couple of
6724 SFP cards, 2 6704 10 gig cards and a few 6748 line cards.
Is there a good config guide ?

You may download the images at here (requires Cisco credentials).
