Cisco 10000 Series Routers

Field Notice: Fast Software Upgrade Fails When Upgrading from Cisco IOS Software Releases 12.0(22)S or 12.0(22)S1


January 10, 2003



Products Affected

  • Cisco 10000 Series Edge Service Routers

  • Cisco 12000 Series Gigabit Service Routers

Problem Description

When upgrading from Cisco IOS® Software Releases 12.0(22)S or 12.0(22)S1 using Fast Software Upgrade (FSU), the standby Performance Routing Engine (PRE) or Gigabit Route Processor (GRP) continuously reloads after the hw-module reset command is entered.

Background

This issue exists if either Cisco IOS Software Release 12.0(22)S or 12.0(22)S1 is running in a system with redundant PREs or GRPs and an attempt is made to upgrade to 12.0(22)S2 or later using the fast software upgrade (FSU) method.

The basic procedure of a FSU is as follows and the corresponding commands are shown below in bold.

Lines 1 and 2: Copy new image to both PREs or GRPs.
Lines 3 through 6: Configure PREs or GRPs to boot from the new image.
Lines 7: Reset the secondary PRE or GRP so it will be running with new image.
Line 8: Cutover to secondary PRE or GRP.

copy tftp disk0:
copy tftp stby-disk0:
configure terminal
boot system flash disk0:c10k-p10-mz.120-23.S
end
write
hw-module sec-cpu reset
redundancy force-failover main-cpu

Problem Symptoms

The standby PRE or GRP is continuously reset by the active PRE or GRP and alarm messages will appear in the log similar to the following:

Dec 5 12:09:45: %C10K_ALARM-6-INFO: CLEAR MAJOR RP A Secondary failure
     Dec 5 12:10:15: %REDUNDANCY-3-STANDBY_LOST: Standby processor fault
     (PEER_REDUNDANCY_STATE_CHANGE)
     Dec 5 12:10:15: %C10K_ALARM-6-INFO: ASSERT MAJOR RP A Secondary failure
     Dec 5 12:14:51: %REDUNDANCY-3-IPC: IOS versions do not match,
     redundancy mode fallback
     
     Dec 5 12:14:52: %C10K_ALARM-6-INFO: CLEAR MAJOR RP A Secondary failure
     Dec 5 12:15:22: %REDUNDANCY-3-STANDBY_LOST: Standby processor fault
     (PEER_REDUNDANCY_STATE_CHANGE)
     Dec 5 12:15:22: %C10K_ALARM-6-INFO: ASSERT MAJOR RP A Secondary failure
     Dec 5 12:19:58: %REDUNDANCY-3-IPC: IOS versions do not match,
     redundancy mode fallback

Workaround/Solution

A workaround is only required when Cisco IOS Software release 12.0(22)S or 12.0(22)S1 is being upgraded to a later release. The workaround is to do the upgrade with a system reload as shown in the example below.

Note:?This method will be service disruptive.

copy tftp disk0:
copy tftp stby-disk0:
configure terminal
boot system flash disk0:c10k-p10-mz.120-23.S
end
write
reload
