Router> show version
Cisco Internetwork Operating System Software 
IOS (tm) 12.2 BW Software (c7200-is-mz), Version 12.2(4)BW2, RELEASE SOFTWARE

Upgrading to a New Software Release

For general information about upgrading to a new software release, refer to Software Installation and Upgrade Procedures located at the following URL:

http://www.cisco.com/warp/public/130/upgrade_index.shtml

New and Changed Information

The following sections list the new hardware and software features supported by the Cisco 7000 family for Cisco IOS Release 12.2 BW.

New Hardware Features in Cisco IOS Release 12.2(4)BW2

There are no new hardware features supported by the Cisco 7000 family for Cisco IOS Release 12.2(4)BW2.

New Software Features in Cisco IOS Release 12.2(4)BW2

There are no new software features supported by the Cisco 7000 family for Cisco IOS Release 12.2(4)BW2.

New Hardware Features in Cisco IOS Release 12.2(4)BW1

There are no new hardware features supported by the Cisco 7000 family for Cisco IOS Release 12.2(4)BW1.

New Software Features in Cisco IOS Release 12.2(4)BW1

There are no new software features supported by the Cisco 7000 family for Cisco IOS Release 12.2(4)BW1.

New Hardware Features in Cisco IOS Release 12.2(4)BW

The following new hardware features are supported by the Cisco 7000 for Cisco IOS Release 12.2(4)BW:

NPE-G1

Platform: Cisco 7200 VXR routers

The NPE-G1 is the first network processing engine for the Cisco 7200 VXR routers to provide the functionality of both a network processing engine and I/O controller. If used without an I/O controller, an I/O blank panel must be in place.

While its design provides I/O controller functionality, it can also work with any I/O controller supported in the Cisco 7200 VXR routers. The NPE-G1, when installed with an I/O controller, provides the primary input/out functionality; that is, the NPE-G1 input/out functionality enhances that of the existing I/O controller. However, when both the I/O controller and NPE-G1 are present, the functionality of the auxiliary port and console port are on the I/O controller.

The NPE-G1 maintains and executes the system management functions for the Cisco 7200 VXR routers and also holds the system memory and environmental monitoring functions.

The NPE-G1 consists of one board with multiple interfaces. It is keyed so that it can be used only in the Cisco 7200 VXR routers.

New Software Features in Cisco IOS Release 12.2(4)BW

There are no new software features supported by the Cisco 7000 family for Cisco IOS Release 12.2(4)BW.

Caveats for Cisco IOS Release 12.2 BW

Caveats describe unexpected behavior in Cisco IOS software releases. Severity 1 caveats are the most serious caveats; severity 2 caveats are less serious. Severity 3 caveats are moderate caveats, and only select severity 3 caveats are included in the caveats document.

This section contains only open and resolved caveats for the current Cisco IOS maintenance release.

All caveats in Cisco IOS Release 12.2 and Cisco IOS Release 12.2 T are also in Cisco IOS Release 12.2(4)BW2.

For information on caveats in Cisco IOS Release 12.2, see Caveats for Cisco IOS Release 12.2.

For information on caveats in Cisco IOS Release 12.2 T, see Caveats for Cisco IOS Release 12.2 T, which lists severity 1 and 2 caveats and select severity 3 caveats and is located on Cisco.com and the Documentation CD-ROM.


Note If you have an account with Cisco.com, you can use Bug Navigator II to find caveats of any severity for any release. To reach Bug Navigator II, log in to Cisco.com and click Software Center: Cisco IOS Software: Bug Toolkit: Bug Navigator II. Another option is to go to http://www.cisco.com/support/bugtools/.


Because Cisco IOS Release 12.2(4)BW is the initial base release, there are no resolved caveats. For a list of the resolved caveats, refer to the next set of release notes for this release version.

Open Caveats—Cisco IOS Release 12.2(4)BW2

This section documents possible unexpected behavior by Cisco IOS Release 12.2(4)BW2 and describes only severity 1 and 2 caveats and select severity 3 caveats.

There are no known open caveats for Cisco IOS Release 12.2(4)BW2.

Resolved Caveats—Cisco IOS Release 12.2(4)BW2

All the caveats listed in this section are resolved in Cisco IOS Release 12.2(4)BW2. This section describes only severity 1 and 2 caveats and select severity 3 caveats.

CSCdu55250

Platforms with faster CPUs may fail to boot if the IOS image is being loaded from a 48 MB or a 128 MB ata-disk PCMCIA card. When this happens this error message will be displayed, where "x" is a digit, and the platform will return to the ROMMON prompt:

ATA_Status time out waiting for x 

This occurrence of this problem is usually random and intermittent.

This problem has only been seen when booting from 48 MB and 128 MB ata-disk PCMCIA cards. Cards of other capacities have not shown this problem. Linear flash PCMCIA cards do not show this problem.

This problem is caused by random and intermittent internal noise on the ata-disk card which causes it to occasionally respond slowly to a read request when loading an IOS image. The problem occurs on platforms with fast CPUs because the amount of time which the system waits for the ata-disk card to return the data is less than on slower platforms.

Workaround: This problem can be avoided by booting the IOS image from another device. Alternatively, a different ata-disk card can be tried, or a linear flash PCMCIA card could be used.

CSCdw30994

When downloading IP pools from a AAA server, there is no way to define a non-contiguous range of addresses using multiple statements like this:

"ip:pool-def#1=aol-pool 192.168.232.0 192.168.237.255",
"ip:pool-def#2=aol-pool 192.168.238.1 192.168.238.160"

When those statements are applied, the second pool-def overwrites the first one. Defining the pools on the command line yields the expected result.

There are no known workarounds.

CSCdw51692

When the Flash disk is used, disk timeout errors such as "ATA_Status time out waiting for 1" may occur.

Workaround: Remove and reinsert the disk to restore the disk function.

CSCdy58344

Problem: Traffic shaping and fancy queuing do not work on a NPE-G1 native GigabitEthernet interface.

Workaround: Use a PA-GE or PA-2FE-TX port adaptor instead.

CSCdz03063

OIR (removal) of a compact flash card from a NPE-G1 can cause the console to hang for upto 2 minutes. The NPE-G1 will not pass traffic during this hang.

This is caused by a timing issue in the PCMCIA management interrupt handler.

Workaround: Power off the router and then perform the OIR.

CSCdz15209

7206VXR running the following boot and main image may crash and end up in ROMMON mode after installing an NPE-G1 with the I/O controller, or other modules, still in the router:

c7200-kboot-mz.122-4.BW
c7200-is-mz.122-4.BW.bin

The router crashes with the following:

%ERR-1-FATAL: Fatal error interrupt, No reloading
 err_stat=0x0, err_enable=0xFF, mgmt_event=0x10
(Bridge dump follows)
Unexpected exception, CPU signal 10, PC = 0x60768B00
Unexpected exception, CPU signal 10, PC = 0x0
Unexpected exception, CPU signal 10, PC = 0x0

If the router is powered on with only NPE-G1 inserted, it loads up fine.

There are no known workarounds.

CSCdz38587

The acct-session-id (attribute 44) sent to the Radius server by the LNS has incorrect prepend, if nas-port format d is used:

From Radius Server:
5 : NAS-Port: 16187630 : i @ 050600F700EE
  Decode: Interface=0 VPI=247 VCI=238   Interface: Slot=0 Module=0 Port=0

44 : Acct-Session-Id   : 65527/238/0/0/0/0_0000AEEC 
   : s @ 2C1C36353532372F3233382F302F302F302F305F3030303041454543

The format of attribute 44 should be:
     Acct-Session-Id ="0/0/0/247.238_0000AEEC"

This condition occurs in a l2tp vpdn environment when "nas-port format d" is used.

There are no known workarounds.

CSCdz45581

The hardware watchdog on NPE-G1 in a C7200VXR chassis is not correctly enabled and so the board may not reboot in the event of software or hardware failure.

This problem affects ONLY NPE-G1. All other C7200 NPEs operate correctly.

There are no known workarounds.

CSCdz47039

An NPE-G1 starts dropping packets on path from Gig0/1 to Gig0/2 as soon as a CBWF Q is configured on the outgoing interface. Most of packets going out of the class-default will be dropped even though the interface is not congested. The same result happens for LLQ and CBWFQ.

Traffic leaving the strict priority queue or the fifo queue with a defined class will not be dropped. It happens regardless to the packet length and start from very low traffic rate.

This issue only affects interfaces Gig0/1, Gig0/2 and Gig0/3 on NPE-G1 on C7200. It does not affect any other C7200 NPE.

There are no known workarounds.

CSCdz63050

NPE-G1 gigaethernet may encounter output drop and bad length counters increasing.

There are no known workarounds.

CSCdz71437

Session-timeout value configured higher than the max limit (which is 35790 min) is causing the user to disconnect immediately.

Work-around: Lower the session-timeout value to 35790 min or below for the affected users.

CSCdz81416

Disk0/disk1/slot0/slot1 filesystems are intiialised even if an I/O controller is not present in a NPE-G1 router.

There are no known workarounds.

CSCdz81658

This issue only affects gig0/1, gig0/2, and gig0/3 on NPE-G1 for C7200.

If the IOS MTU size is increased above 2006 and the interface is subjected to stress traffic, the interface's receive ring may lock up (an IOS MTU of 2006 is ok, 2007 is not).

There are no known workarounds.

CSCin11256

A Layer 2 Tunneling Protocol (L2TP) access concentrator (LAC) may reload when PPP over ATM (PPPoA) sessions are initiated.

This symptom is observed when the shutdown interface configuration command and the no shutdown interface configuration command are entered in quick succession.

There are no known workarounds.

Open Caveats—Cisco IOS Release 12.2(4)BW1

This section documents possible unexpected behavior by Cisco IOS Release 12.2(4)BW1 and describes only severity 1 and 2 caveats and select severity 3 caveats.

There are no known open caveats for Cisco IOS Release 12.2(4)BW1.

Resolved Caveats—Cisco IOS Release 12.2(4)BW1

All the caveats listed in this section are resolved in Cisco IOS Release 12.2(4)BW1. This section describes only severity 1 and 2 caveats and select severity 3 caveats.

CSCdu57873

This problem is observed when faulty servers respond to RADIUS requests using a different port than the one on which they received a request. It can also be observed in NAT environments if the source port of a response is something other than the port for the request.

There are no known workarounds.

CSCdv04806

When a PPPoE client connects to a non-cisco LAC and negotiates an MRU of 1492 and then makes a call to a Cisco LNS, the PPP negotiation does not succeed as we can not negotiate the MRU below 1500.

There are no known workarounds.

CSCdx61867

A router may stop reusing virtual interfaces after the virtual interfaces have been used for a few times.

This symptom is observed on a Cisco router that is handling a high volume of short-duration calls.

There are no known workarounds.

CSCdy05118

A per-user interface configuration that is loaded from an authentication, authorization, and accounting (AAA) server can have a maximum length of 600 bytes. If if the maximum length is exceeded and the AAA profile is in the "old-style" format "lcp:interface-config=....," the router will reload.

If the maximum length is exceeded and the AAA profile is in the "new-style" format "lcp:interface-config#<n>=..." (in which <n> is the is the sequence number of the lines sent), the router will not reload, but the user will be rejected.

This symptom is observed on a router that is running Cisco IOS Release 12.2(4)B or Cisco IOS Release 12.2(10.7)T.

There are no known workarounds.

CSCdy17135

A router may reload if a per-user interface configuration line is greater than 80 characters.

Workaround: Ensure that each per-user interface configuration line is less than 80 characters.

CSCdy21133

This is further support for CSCdy05118 and allows for per-user interface-config (sent by the aaa server) to be longer than 600 bytes.

There are no known workarounds.

CSCdy36426

Feature Request—Allow MTU to adapt on MRU value of rcvd CONFACK.

There are no known workarounds.

CSCdy84285

Router fails to forward the DHCPACK to the client when a installed static route exist for that IP address instead issues an ARP searching for the IP address that the customer was OFFERED and REQUESTED. Since the customer never receives the DHCPACK the IP address is never accepted by the client. The client is therefore never obtains an ip address.

There are no known workarounds.

CSCdz14149

A crash due to an Error Interrupt occurs on a LNS, when an logged in user generates traffic. All crashes have in common that the crashinfo file consist of a uncorrectable ECC from L2 cache or memory entry. Though we get a stack for decoding, the traceback in the crashinfo file contains just zeros.

This problem occurs under the following conditions:

System image: c7200-is-mz.122-4.BW.bin"
platform: cisco 7206VXR (NPE-G1) processor (revision A) with 950272K/32768K bytes 
of memory.


Note The crash does not occur with the same IOS and config using a NPE300 instead of a NPE-G1.We exclude any HW related issue here, because we have replaced the NPE-G1, chassis and power supply. Furthermore we have neither inserted any PA nor the I/O board, but the crashes still occur when a user generates traffic.


There are no known workarounds.
