Products Affected

SCE SCAS BB - 3.0.0

Problem Description

Link failure-reflection and connection-mode configurations under LineCard interface configuration are not saved correctly to the startup-config and/or presented correctly in the running-config.

Non-default lines are not read into the running config. The system is otherwise unaffected.

The problem occurs only if the failure-reflection or connection-mode configuration parameters are different from the default setting.

Background

The startup-config is a text file that includes all the non-default configurations to be applied after the SCE reloads. It is created upon execution of the CLI command and/or after applying the Service Configuration (PQB) file. Due to a bug in the procedure that creates the configuration file, the two lines that should include the link failure-reflection and connection-mode configuration, if their state is not the default, are incorrectly written to the configuration file.

The same procedure is used also to display the running-config, so this problem applies to the running-config as well.

Problem Symptoms

The startup configuration and the running configuration include the following lines:

interface LineCard 0 
on-all-portsconnection-mode inline

When the SCE executes the startup-config, after reload, these lines fail to run and the default configuration of link failure-reflection and connection-mode are applied.

Workaround/Solution

Manually edit the /tffs0/system/p3hidden/config/genstart.txt file. If it does not already exist, create it. See Note 1.

Add the configuration you wish to be applied after the SCE reloads. Since the link failure-reflection and connection-mode are part of the LineCard interface configuration, you must add the line before these commands.

For example:

LineCard interface 0 
link failure-reflection on-all-ports 
connection-mode inline

Note 1 - File Creation Instructions

  1. Copy from the SCE or create a file with the name genstart.txt

  2. Edit the file and add the configuration lines that are non default.

    For example:

    interface LineCard 0 
    
    link failure-reflection on-all-ports 
    
    connection-mode inline
    
  3. Copy the file to the SCE /tffs0/system/p3hidden/config/genstart.txt
