Problem Description

Due to a component change on the listed products, customers are required to upgrade to Cisco IOS® Software Release 12.1(12c)EV2 or later to ensure software support for the updated products. Customers that are currently running versions of hardware prior to the versions affected should also consider upgrading Cisco IOS to ensure that any new or replacement units that are received from Cisco can be integrated into the 15530 system without error.

When using the 15530-ITU2-xxxx (10Gbps ITU Trunk-Hardware Version 8.1 and later), 15530-ITU3-xxxx (2.5Gbps ITU Trunk-Hardware Version 3.7 and later) or the 15530-10GE-UPLINK (10Gbps Uplink-Hardware Version 8.1 and later) with a CiscoIOS version prior to 12.1(12c)EV2 customers may see Incrementing Tx QuadPHY sybl Errs on a cross connected interface or sub interface.

When using the 15530-LCMB-0200 (10-port ESCON-Hardware Version 3.4 and later) with a Cisco IOS version prior to 12.1(12c)EV2 customers may see incrementing Code Violation and Running Disparity (CVRD) error counts on a cross-connected port group.

These errors may cause traffic loss which can affect the performance of the clients and/or result in link resets.

Note: It is normal for non zero Tx QuadPHY sybl Errs to be observed on a non-cross-connected interface, sub-interface and portgroup.

Background

This issue was introduced into the product line as the result of a forced component change resulting from the end-of-life of an original revision of a component. The component enhancements have been accounted for in versions of Cisco IOS 12.1(12c)EV2 or later.

Problem Symptoms

Upon insertion of one of the affected assemblies into a 15530 system, running a Cisco IOS version prior to 12.1(12c)EV2, the customer may encounter errors which may result in performance degradation and link resets.

Workaround/Solution

To resolve the compatibility issues noted in this Field Notice, customers are required to upgrade their Cisco IOS version to 12.1(12c)EV2 or later. Customers may download the latest IOS images from the Software Center (registered customers only) on Cisco.com.
