Product Bulletin No. 3092

Cisco Systems® announces Cisco IOS® Software updates for Cisco® Catalyst® 3750, Catalyst 3560, Catalyst 3550, Catalyst 2970 & Catalyst 2960 series Intelligent Ethernet switches and Cisco Gigabit Ethernet Switch Module (CGESM). This new release furthers Cisco leadership in providing secure, reliable, and feature-rich LAN switching solutions.

The Cisco Gigabit Ethernet Switch Module (CGESM) is an integrated OEM Ethernet blade switch from Cisco built for the HP BladeSystem chassis.

OVERVIEW

This product bulletin contains content and delivery information for Cisco IOS Software Release 12.2(25)SED.
The following new features are available with Cisco IOS Software Release 12.2(25)SED:

802.1x Auth-Fail-VLAN-Allows end devices that fail 802.1x authentication to be placed into a VLAN of choice. 802.1x starts the re-authentication timer in auth-fail-vlan state and it continues asking the end device for its authentication credentials upon expiry of the re-authentication timer. Once the end device is properly authenticated the switch port moves to the VLAN specifed within the AAA response. If the end device is not authenticated, the switch port stays in its current auth-fail-vlan state.

802.1x Auth-Fail-Open-Provides a way for the network administrator to configure "critical" ports that are allowed access to the network if the 802.1x authentication process cannot reach any of the configured AAA servers. This feature is also known as "Critical Auth" or "AAA-Down".

IPv6 Multicast Listener Discovery (MLD) Snooping-Is the protocol used by IPv6 hosts to register with multicast groups. MLD Snooping provides similar functionality for IPv6 that IGMP Snooping provides for IPv4.

IPv6 ACL-Support for IPv6 Router ACLs (RACLs) and Port ACLs (PACLs).

IPv6 Host Support-Ability for the switch to support basic IPv6 capabilities such as `IPv6 Ping, IPv6 Telnet, IPv6 Traceroute' and allow users to connect to the switch over IPv6 for basic management and configuration of IPv6 capabilities.

Access SDM Template-Increases the number of Security and QoS ACLs on the 3750 and 3560 switches, to be consistent with the 3550.

– Desktop = Security-2K and QoS-512

– Aggregator = Security-4K and QoS-784

Per VLAN QoS-Provides more granularity in applying QoS policy to multiple flows on a Per VLAN basis. Enables the 3750 and 3560 to be more consistent with the 3550. Previously a single policer was supported per port, and now a customer can configure multiple.

Flex Links Bi-Directional Fast Convergence-Improves the downstream convergence time for Flex Links ports by triggering the upstream switch to flush its MAC address. The message is sent after Flex Links failover. With the MAC address table flushed the next packet downstream will be flooded out all ports re-building MAC address table.

EIGRP-VRF Lite-Allows EIGRP to route into a Virtual Routing & Forwarding (VRF) domain.

• Cisco Catalyst 2960 Series software: http://www.cisco.com/pcgi-bin/tablebuild.pl/cat2960

You must purchase the EMI/IP Services or Advanced IP Services software upgrade kit when upgrading a switch from SMI/IP Base to EMI/IP Services or Advanced IP Services software. Downloads of SMI/IP Base, EMI/IP Services, and Advanced IP Services files are monitored for adherence to this requirement.
Because of export restrictions on strong cryptography software, a separate image is required for the cryptographic features (SSH, SNMPv3, and Kerberos Protocol). These software images can be downloaded from the corresponding Triple Data Encryption Standard (3DES) area of the links provided in this section. Note that the Cisco Advanced IP Services license is available only in cryptographic format.
