Hi all,
I'm a big nubee, and I was thinking of buying a 5505  switch off ebay
(supt 3, couple of 10/100  blades and they seem cheap $$$ ) .  I read
here that the the ios is not licensed (would the os be removed.
disabling the switch?.
Am I just throwing money out the window?
Any help here would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks Steve

I don't know if I would risk that.

Re: Confused..IOS removed from switch
I doubt that they would be trying to sell the system without IOS on it.
 What is usually meant by IOS being unlicensed in this context is that
Cisco will not support you if you run into any problems with the Cisco
gear you bought unless you buy a service contract from them (which will
be expensive).  If the switches function fine with the IOS on them,
this may be a reasonable thing to buy.

Of course, you should check with the seller that the system has no
known hardware problems and is actually usable with the software loaded
on it to make sure you don't get a lemon.  As with buying anything on
ebay, the motto is caveat emptor!

I guess it is really up to him. I personally would not buy something like
this unless they will guarantee that it is in working condition.
