Restrictions for Firmware Version 4.0

This section describes restrictions that apply specifically to Firmware Version 4.0 on the Cisco RF Switch, used in conjunction with the Cisco IOS N+1 Redundancy feature on the Cisco CMTS.

Cisco recommends upgrading to Firmware Version 4.0, even with earlier Cisco IOS releases subject to N+1 Prerequisites and Restrictions such as feature interoperability, factory default configurations, etc.

Refer to the following document located on Cisco.com for further information on Cisco IOS releases:

Release Notes for Cisco IOS Software Release 12.3 BC

http://www.cisco.com/en/US/products/sw/iosswrel/ps5187/prod_release_notes_list.html

Upgrades should be done via tftp download, as done in previous releases. This is the first release to use the combined binary image file format.

When the RF switch recognizes the download of a combined image file, it scans the file looking for the appropriate section of the image file that applies to it. The RF switch stores the section of the download that applies to the card onto which it is loading.

The 10BaseT Ethernet card supports only 10Mbps operation.

Prerequisites for Firmware Version 3.93

This section describes prerequisites that apply specifically to Firmware Version 3.93 on the Cisco RF Switch, used in conjunction with the Cisco IOS N+1 Redundancy feature on the Cisco CMTS.

The Cisco RF Switch must be cabled and installed in full compliance with the documents listed in the "Additional References" section.

Restrictions for Firmware Version 3.93

This section describes restrictions that apply specifically to Firmware Version 3.93 on the Cisco RF Switch, used in conjunction with the Cisco IOS N+1 Redundancy feature on the Cisco CMTS.

This version can be downloaded only on 10BaseT ethernet cards.

This version adds support for the new Version 4 combined binary file downloads.

This version still supports the single image formats used with the earlier cards.

Prerequisites for Firmware Version 3.92

This section describes prerequisites that apply specifically to Firmware Version 3.92 on the Cisco RF Switch, used in conjunction with the Cisco IOS N+1 Redundancy feature on the Cisco CMTS.

The Cisco RF Switch must be cabled and installed in full compliance with the documents listed in the "Additional References" section.

Restrictions for Firmware Version 3.92

This section describes restrictions that apply specifically to Firmware Version 3.92 on the Cisco RF Switch, used in conjunction with the Cisco IOS N+1 Redundancy feature on the Cisco CMTS.

Cisco recommends upgrading to Firmware Version 3.92, even with earlier Cisco IOS releases subject to N+1 Prerequisites and Restrictions such as feature interoperability, factory default configurations, etc.

Refer to the following document located on Cisco.com for further information on Firmware Version 3.92:

Release Notes for Cisco IOS Software Release 12.3 BC

http://www.cisco.com/en/US/products/sw/iosswrel/ps5187/prod_release_notes_list.html

Version 3.92 allocates new nvmem location to support long passwords (up to 32 characters) and SNMP community string (up to 64 characters).

In Version 3.92, on first reboot after migration from previous version, the new password and community string areas are installed and old settings (if any) are copied to new location.

If the user downgrades from 3.92 to a previous version, some of the configuration parameters in the newer versions are not recognized by the older software which causes the some of the config elements to be reset to default values.

If user downgrades from Version 3.92 to Version 3.80, the new nvmem location for password and community string is not recognized, and the password is removed and community string is set to private.

If the user downgrades from Version 3.92 to Version 3.60 or earlier, the password is removed and community string is set to private, and the ip address, default gateway and tftp address are reset to default values.


Note Version 3.92 is case-sensitive and stores passwords and SNMP community strings as they are entered on the CLI. In previous versions the case-sensitivity was not preserved and passwords and community strings were converted internally — passwords were stored in all uppercase and community strings in all lowercase. The parser allowed the user to type in any case as long as the letters matched.

When the user upgrades to Version 3.92, the mixed case passwords and SNMP community strings from previous versions are stored as lower case characters. After the upgrade, the user should verify the password and community string and set them as desired.


Prerequisites for Firmware Version 3.90

This section describes prerequisites that apply specifically to Firmware Version 3.90 on the Cisco RF Switch, used in conjunction with the Cisco IOS N+1 Redundancy feature on the Cisco CMTS.

The WDOG is a fixed 1.6-second timer that times out and generates a reset to the NRU microprocessor if it is not periodically reset by using a special command sequence. The WDOG contains a status register that the processor can use to detect a WDOG reset event, so that the processor can distinguish between a power-on reset and WDOG timeout reset.

copy tftp

To transfer Cisco RF Switch Firmware images (Flash and Bootflash images) from a remote TFTP host, use either of the following two copy tftp commands in User mode:

copy tftp: URL-filename {flash: | bootflash:} [ noverify ]

copy {flash: | bootflash:} tftp:URL-filename [ noverify ]

These copy commands are fully implemented starting with Firmware Version 2.50. Version-specific limitations are cited below in "Command History."

Syntax Description

URL-filename

IP address and image filename on the TFTP host, in the following format for the IP address of 10.1.1.10:

copy tftp://10.0.0.10/file.bin

flash:

Copies the Firmware image to Flash: on the Cisco RF Switch. The keyword flash: may be abbreviated as FL:.

bootflash:

Copies the Firmware image to Bootflash: on the Cisco RF Switch. The keyword bootflash: may be abbreviated as BF:.

noverify

Firmware Version 3.60 or later. Overrides the file type verification, and places a file in either the flash (FL:) or bootflash (BF:) device.


Defaults

Version 2.50

Support for copy tftp commands introduced to Cisco RF Switch Firmware.

For Version 2.50, if no TFTP host is defined, the system does not prompt you for one. You can, however, specify a host address as URL-filename, if desired.

For example, the command copy tftp://10.0.0.10/file.bin attempts to download the file from the specified IP address of 10.0.0.10 even if there is a different TFTP host previously defined with set tftp-host command.

Version 4.0

Command supported.


Usage Guidelines

Version 3.60 adds the noverify option to the copy command, enabling you to override the file type verification, and place a file in either the flash (FL:) or bootflash (BF:) device. Version 3.60 updates the online help to reflect this new option. This new option provides the ability to place a copy of the main application into the bootflash, so that normal system operation is restarted in the case of a system crash, instead of having the "sys>" prompt as in previous versions of Firmware.

When performing remote TFTP image downloads, the copy tftp command prompts you to verify the image file type corresponding to the correct destination. For example, the copy tftp command does not allow you to copy the SysLoader image into the Flash: memory because the SysLoader image functions only in the Bootflash: memory instead. These TFTP prompts prevent you from copying Firmware images to the wrong respective location on the Cisco RF Switch.

rfswitch> copy ?

COPY source destination
 
Syntax
  COPY TFTP:<url-filename> {FLASH: | BOOTFLASH:}
  COPY {FLASH: | BOOTFLASH:} TFTP:<url-filename>
 
Access-level : password
 
! Notes
! Copies remote file identified by <url-filename> via TFTP to/from application
! flash: or sysloader bootflash: memory. The first argument is the source, the
! second is the destination. It allows the user to download an image from the
! network and save in flash, or upload an image from flash to the network server.
! By default, the transfer uses the host IP address specified by SET TFTP-HOST.
! However, if the <url-filename> contains an address, the transfer will use this
! address instead. For example, 'copy tftp://10.0.0.10/file.bin flash:' would
! attempt to download the file from the specified address of 10.0.0.10, ignoring
! the current TFTP-HOST setting, if any.

The following examples display the copy tftp command when used for Flash: and Bootflash: memory:

rfswitch> copy tftp://10.0.0.2/rfsw320-fl-1935030g FL:

Usage Guidelines

Entering privileged EXEC mode enables the use of privileged commands. Because many of the privileged commands set operating parameters, privileged access should be password-protected to prevent unauthorized use. If the system administrator has set a password with the enable password global configuration command, you are prompted to enter the password before being allowed access to privileged EXEC mode. The password is case sensitive.

If an enable password has not been set, only enable mode can be accessed through the console connection.

RF Switch

If no password is currently set, you will enter enable mode and gets "rfswitch#" prompt.

If a password is set, then the rfsw prompts "password:" appears and awaits entry of a password. If a valid password is entered, then enter enable mode and get "rfswitch#" prompt.

Examples

In the following example, the user enters privileged EXEC mode using the enable command. The system prompts the user for a password before allowing access to the privileged EXEC mode. The password is not printed to the screen. Note that the prompt for user EXEC mode is the greater than symbol (>), and the prompt for privileged EXEC mode is the number sign (#).

set arp timeout

To configure Address Resolution Protocol (ARP) timeout on the Cisco RF Switch, use the set arp timeout command in User mode. To restore the default timeout setting of 14400 seconds (four hours), use the no set arp timeout command. You can change the Address Resolution Protocol (ARP) cache implementation in an effort to reduce the number of ARP requests.

set arp timeout seconds


Note In earlier versions of Cisco RF Switch Firmware (versions 3.30 and earlier), the ARP timeout value was permanently fixed at 60 seconds. This is now a definable setting from the CLI, beginning with Firmware Version 3.50 and continuing to later versions.

Version 4.0

Usage Guidelines

Cisco RF Switch Firmware Version 3.50 changes ARP timeout behavior in two ways:

First, the ARP timeout value has been greatly increased and is now programmable.

Secondly, the table logic now attempts to preserve table entries that have a valid ARP time limit, and will not reuse these entries until the ARP entry exceeds the timeout. This approach does have its consequences, however. Once the table fills (currently set to 32 entries), no further additions can occur until one of the entries expires.

Examples

The following example illustrates typical output from the show config command in VErsion 3.50.

rfswitch> show config

IP addr: 192.168.3.30
Subnet mask: 255.255.255.0

set dhcp lease

To set the lease time that the DHCP client requests from the server, use set dhcp lease command in User mode. To return the DHCP lease to the default setting of an infinite lease (0xffffffff), use the no form of this command.

This command requires that DHCP operation be enabled by using the guidelines in the "Enabling and Operating DHCP on the Cisco RF Switch" section of the Cisco RF Switch Firmware Configuration Guide.

set dhcp lease leasetime

no set dhcp lease

Syntax Description

leasetime

The leasetime in seconds, and must be a minimum of 60 seconds. Any value longer than 30 days (2,592,000 seconds) results in the Cisco RF Switch requesting an infinite lease (0xffffffff), which is the default setting.

dhcp

(Optional) Keyword enables the specified IP address as the address for DHCP services on the network. This keyword also produces the same result as the no form of this command for Version 3.30 and 3.50—it enables DHCP.



Note Both ip-address and subnet mask are in the form of A.B.C.D.


Defaults

This command allows you to select between assigning a static IP address on the Switch or choosing your Firmware's default setting. The default IP configuration on the Cisco RF Switch varies according to your Firmware Version:

The default IP configuration for Version 3.30 and 3.50 is DHCP enabled.

set slot config

To configure the slots for cable interface line cards, and to configure the upstream (US) and downstream (DS) slots, use the set slot config command in User mode. To return the chassis slot configuration to Firmware default (3x10—three downstream and 10 upstream slots), use the no form of this command. There are 14 slots in the RF Switch chassis.

set slot config {upstreamslots | downstreamslots }

no set slot config


Note The set slot config command replaces the earlier configure card count command effective with Firmware Version 3.30. The configure card count command does not allow for any slot configuration other than 3x10.


Syntax Description

upstreamslots

Upstream slots—16-bit hex integer bit-mask that represents whether the slot is enabled and configured for the type of line card. The right-most bit represents slot 1.

Note The bit-mask for US slots must precede the bitmap for DS slots.

downstreamslots

Downstream slots—16-bit hex integer bit-mask that represents whether the slot is enabled and configured for the type of line card. The right-most bit represents slot 1.


Defaults

Slots are configured for 3x10 by default, as follows:

three DS slots, dnstreamslots = 0x1c00

10 US slots, upstreamslots = 0x03ff

Slot 14 is not used for 3x10 configuration.

Usage Guidelines

The Cisco RF Switch must be restarted for the changes to take effect (reboot or reload command), or an event occurs which causes the enumeration of the chassis line cards to reset.

Setting a bit position tells the Cisco RF Switch to expect that type of card installed in the slot. A zero in both parameters indicates that the slot should be empty. As there are only 14 slots in the Cisco RF Switch chassis, the upper two Most Significant Bits (MSBs) of the 16-bit integer are ignored.

The slot configuration is stored in non-volatile memory (nvmem), separate from the application firmware. This allows future upgrades to the application firmware without requiring the user to reprogram the slot configuration, and allows a single application code distribution for any or all RF Switch configurations.

Normally, Cisco defines this configuration during manufacture of Cisco RF Switches, but this command allows you to change the chassis slot setup in the field, and to use any number or mix of line cards that you might need in the future.

For additional information about bitmaps on the Cisco RF Switch, refer to these online resources:

Bitmap Calculator for N+1 Configuration with the Cisco RF Switch (Microsoft Excel format)

"Creating Cisco RF Switch Module Bitmaps" in N+1 Redundancy for the Cisco Cable Modem Termination System

http://www.cisco.com/en/US/docs/cable/cmts/feature/guide/uFGnpls1.html

Examples

Example for 3x10 Slot Configuration

The following example configures 3x10 slot configuration:

rfswitch> set slot config 0x03ff 0x1c00

The command example above configures these US and DS slots with following decimal bitmask conversions:

10 US slots, three DS slots, one empty slot

upstream bitmask = 0000 0011 1111 1111 = 0x03ff

dnstream bitmask = 0001 1100 0000 0000 = 0x1c00

Example for US and DS Cable Interface Line Cards in Slots 1-4

The following example configures the RF Switch chassis with four cable interface line cards, with US cards in slots 1-2 and DS cards in slots 3-4:

rfswitch> set slot config 0x03 0x0c


Note Type set slot config ? for additional command information.

Usage Guidelines

A switchover group is a collection of Cisco RF Switch interfaces that are all configured to switch over at the same time.

This command can be abbreviated as set group.

The system can hold up to 28 group definitions.

Once a switchover group containing one or more Cisco RF Switch modules has been defined, you can use the Cisco IOS switch command in the Router CLI to test N+1 Redundancy behavior on the Cisco RF Switch, as described in the section, "Switchover Testing Tasks for N+1 Redundancy" in the document N+1 Redundancy for the Cisco Cable Modem Termination System:

http://www.cisco.com/en/US/docs/cable/cmts/feature/guide/uFGnpls1.html


Note You do not need to specify module-bitmap when negating an existing switchover group. For example, the command no set switchover-group a12345 will eliminate the switchover group named "a12345."


The Cisco RF Switch CLI does not check that the modules specified in the module-bitmap are unique, so a module may be mapped to different groups.

The no set group all command in User mode can be used to remove all groups, except for the reserved group map of all.

Examples

The following example gives the group name of a12345 with a bitmap of 0xAA200000.

rfswitch> set switchover-group a12345 0xAA200000

Usage Guidelines

The time values displayed are in the format HH:MM:SS, and are relative to the current system time, which is also displayed.

DHCP can be used to obtain the IP address while retaining the setting for the TFTP server, as set via the set dhcp lease command.

The one exception to this is when moving from using a static IP address to using DHCP. Because the DHCP client is only installed at bootup as required, changing from a static IP address to DHCP requires that the system be rebooted for DHCP to take effect. Use either the reboot or reload command.

Table 2 describes the significant fields shown in the display.

Table 2 show file Field Descriptions 

Field
Description
Status (X, Y)

X—Backup copy

Y—Working copy

A status of 0 for either of the image files (backup or working) indicates that the slot population and module status in the RF Switch chassis is valid.

A status of less than 0 for either of the image files indicates an error was detected in the image.

The remaining information from the show file command is from the image that is or will be in use upon next reboot, assuming there is a valid image.

For example, Bootflash: Status(-252, 0) indicates that there is a CRC error in the backup copy, while the working copy is ok. You can use the show file command along with the erase command to try to generate system errors in the file structure, but be aware that the auto-backup/restore function may correct the error before you see it.

MIBs

MIBs for Cisco RF Switch Firmware Version 3.30

Access to the chassis line card configuration via SNMP requires the addition of the following new objects to the MIB database, summarized in Table 1. Each of these objects has these three attributes:

SYNTAX: OCTET STRING (SIZE(2))

ACCESS: read-only

STATUS: mandatory


Note Because these objects are 16-bit hex integer bitmasks, in keeping with the conventions currently used in other bitmask values, they are declared as OCTET STRING (SIZE(2)).


Table 4 MIBs Objects Required with Firmware Version 3.30 and Later.

Object
Description

nruCacheSnmpData

Value of set snmp cache command. A value of 1 in a bit position indicates that the caching is enabled. It is enabled by default.

nruUpstreamSlotConfig

Value of the upstreamslots parameter of the set slot config command. A value of 1 in a bit position indicates that the corresponding slot should expect an upstream linecard.

nruUpstreamSlotDetected

Results of line card enumeration. A value of 1 in a bit position indicates that an upstream linecard was detected in the slot. Normally, this value should equal nruUpstreamSlotConfig.

nruUpstreamSlotErrors

A value of 1 in any bit position indicates that there is a discrepancy between the configured versus the detected settings for the slot.

nruDnstreamSlotConfig

Value of the dnstreamslots parameter of the set slot config command. A value of 1 in a bit position indicates that the corresponding slot should expect a downstream line card.

nruDnstreamSlotDetected

Results of line card enumeration. A value of 1 in a bit position indicates that a downstream linecard was detected in the slot. Normally, this value should equal nruDnstreamSlotConfig.

nruDnstreamSlotErrors

A value of 1 in any bit position indicates that there is a discrepancy between the configured versus the detected settings for the slot
