Problem Description

Support is removed from Cisco IOS® Software Release 12.2(7.5)T for the PA-2FEISL port adapters on the Cisco 7x00 series routers.

Background

Due to some confusion when the PA-2FEISL adapters were listed as end of sale (EoS) on April 30, 2001, support was removed from Cisco IOS Software Release 12.2(7.5)T for the Cisco 7x00 router platforms. This error was caught and fixed in Cisco IOS Software Release 12.2(7.6)T and will continue to be supported in subsequent releases of Cisco IOS Software Release 12.3.

For more information about this EoS, see End-of-Sale Announcement for PA-2FEISL-TX and PA-2FEISL-FX (registered customers only)

Problem Symptoms

Cisco IOS Software Release 12.2(7.5)T does not support the PA-2FEISL-TX and PA-2FEISL-FX cards.

Workaround/Solution

Use a Cisco IOS Software release earlier than 12.2(7.4)T or later than 12.2(7.6)T. These cards will continue to be supported in subsequent releases of Cisco IOS Software Release 12.3 and will be supported until May, 2004.

Description

CSCdw42930

Remove support for the PA-2FEISL from 12.2T for the 7x00 routers.

 

Cisco IOS Versions Affected

Cisco IOS Software Release 12.2(7.5)T is the only release affected.

Additional Information

The PA-2FEISL enables network administrators to bridge and route multiple VLANs of Token Ring and Ethernet traffic over the same high-speed backbone trunks.

The PA-2FEISL is capable of running ISL on Token Ring, and both the PA-2FE and PA-2FEISL are capable of running ISL.

The two-port Token Ring Inter-Switch Link (ISL) fiber and copper port adapters deliver Fast Ethernet with ISL VLAN transport over switch-to-switch backbone connections or switch-to-server data center attachments. These port adapters do not provide line rate Fast Ethernet performance. For more information about these port adapters, see Cisco Port Adapters Data Sheets.
