New Software Features in Cisco IOS Release 12.2(4) MB5

ITP M3UA/SUA Signaling Gateway

Based on open industry standards, the Cisco IP Transfer Point (ITP) product is designed for transporting Signaling System 7 (SS7) traffic over IP (SS7oIP) networks. The ITP product's design provides significant cost efficiencies and scalability enhancements over legacy SS7 networks. Using the Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF) M2PA and Stream Control Transmission Protocol (SCTP) protocols, the initial release of the ITP product provided the base functionality to off load SS7 traffic to IP. Subsequent releases provided the full functionality found in typical legacy signaling transfer point (STP) nodes, such as global title translation (GTT), gateway screening, and ISDN User Part (ISUP) transport. In addition, support for high-speed links (HSL) was added.

MTP3 User Adaptation (M3UA) and Signaling Connection Control Protocol (SCCP) User Adaptation (SUA) Signaling Gateway:

Uses the ITP M3UA and SUA protocols.

Adds signaling gateway functionality between legacy SS7 network and IP-enabled signaling endpoints (SEP) nodes.

Introduces an additional switch option (China) for the CS7 Variant command.

Refer to the following document for additional information:

http://www.cisco.com/univercd/cc/td/doc/product/software/ios122/122newft/122limit/122mb/122mb2/index.htm

New Hardware Features in Cisco IOS Release 12.2(4) MB1

No new hardware features are supported in Cisco IOS Release 12.2(4) MB1.

New Software Features in Cisco IOS Release 12.2(4) MB1

The following new features are supported in Cisco IOS Release 12.2(4) MB1:

GTT and SCCP Support

The following new software enhancements have been made to the IP Transfer Point (ITP) feature introduced in Cisco IOS Release 12.2(1) MB1:

GTT Support

A global title is an application address, such as an 800 number, calling card number, or mobile subscriber identification number. Global Title Translation (GTT) is the process by which the SCCP translates a global title into the point code and subsystem number of the destination service switching point (SSP) where the higher-layer protocol processing occurs.

The two forms of GTT are as follows:

Intermediate GTT—A subsequent global title is required by another node; thus, the routing indicator is set to zero, indicating a route by the global title (GT).

Final GTT—No subsequent global title is required by another node; thus, the routing indicator is set to 1, indicating a route by point code and subsystem number (PCSSN).

Enhanced QoS for SS7 Traffic

Quality of service (QoS) refers to the performance of packet flow through networks. The goal in a QoS-enabled environment is to enable predictable service delivery to certain traffic classes or types regardless of other traffic flowing through the network at any given time. ITP QoS provides the framework that allows end-to-end QoS for SS7 packet flow through SS7-over-IP (SS7oIP) networks. End-to-end QoS is the ability of the network to deliver service required by specific network traffic from one end of the network to another. In particular, QoS features ensure improved and more predictable network service by providing the following services:

Dedicated bandwidth

Improving loss characteristics

Avoiding and managing network congestion

Shaping network traffic

Setting traffic priorities across the network

QoS enables networks to control and predictably service a variety of network applications and traffic types. SS7 networks generally achieve QoS capabilities by over-provisioning bandwidth. Conventional SS7 networks lack the ability to identify different traffic types and provide network prioritization based on these traffic types. For instance, SS7 networks cannot separate ISUP and SCCP traffic and route this traffic over specific output links.

SCCP Screening

SCCP screening is a method of screening message signal units (MSUs) on inbound and outbound linksets. If the access list is inbound when the ITP receives a packet, the ITP checks the access list criteria statements for a match. If the packet is permitted, the ITP continues to process the packet. If the packet is denied, the ITP discards it.

If the access list is outbound after receiving and routing a packet to the outbound interface, the ITP checks the access list criteria statements for a match. If the packet is permitted, the ITP transmits the packet. If the packet is denied, the ITP discards it.

SCCP Management

SCCP and GTT Screening

SCCP and GTT Accounting

Multiple Point Code support

New Hardware Features in Cisco IOS Release 12.2(1) MB1

No new hardware features are supported in Cisco IOS Release 12.2(1) MB1.

New Software Features in Cisco IOS Release 12.2(1) MB1

The following new feature is supported in Cisco IOS Release 12.2(1) MB1:

IP Transfer Point

Cisco IP Transfer Point (ITP) is an SS7oIP software solution. ITP provides a highly reliable, cost-effective medium for migrating Signaling System 7 (SS7) and the telecommunications network signaling technology to the mobile wireless industry IP environment.

Cisco has leveraged its leadership role in the high-end switch and router industry and has created a carrier class router with a transparent SS7oIP convergence solution. The result is a seamless solution that is managed identically to other Cisco devices in large wide-area networks and leverages existing Cisco skill sets within the service provider's organization. In many cases, the provisioning, management, and tools training are already in place.

CSCef68324

Cisco Internetwork Operating System (IOS) software is vulnerable to a Denial of Service (DoS) and potentially an arbitrary code execution attack from a specifically crafted IPv6 packet. The packet must be sent from a local network segment. Only devices that have been explicitly configured to process IPv6 traffic are affected. Upon successful exploitation, the device may reload or be open to further exploitation.

Cisco has made free software available to address this vulnerability for all affected customers.

More details can be found in the security advisory that is posted at http://www.cisco.com/warp/public/707/cisco-sa-20050729-ipv6.shtml.

CSCsa81379: Deprecate NetFlow Feature Acceleration

NetFlow Feature Acceleration has been deprecated and removed from Cisco IOS. The global command ip flow-cache feature-accelerate will no longer be recognized in any IOS configuration.

If your router configuration does not currently contain the command ip flow-cache feature-accelerate, this change does not affect you.

The removal of NetFlow Feature Acceleration does not affect any other aspects of Netflow operation, for example Access-list processing. The features are separate and distinct.

Cisco Express Forwarding (CEF) supersedes the deprecated NetFlow Feature Acceleration.

Additionally, the following MIB objects and OIDs have been deprecated and removed from the netflow mib (CISCO-NETFLOW-MIB):

cnfFeatureAcceleration        1.3.6.1.4.1.9.9.99999.1.3

CSCeb54609 - ITP: Segmentation field lost during XUDT-->CLDT conversion

Symptom: When the ITP SUA Signaling Gateway is converting an extended unitdata (XUDT) with segmentation information to the connectionless data transfer (CLDT) message, the gateway does not convert the segmentation information present in the XUDT message to the corresponding SUA field in the CLDT message.

Condition: This defect only occurs when the ITP is configured for the ANSI variant.

Workaround: There is no workaround.

CSCeb57599- ITP: router crash during GTT to app-grp with congested member

Symptom: The router (or Versatile Interface Processor (VIP) if MTP3 offload is configured) crashes during global title translation (GTT) processing.

Condition: The crash only happens when GTT is performed and the result is a GTT application group containing at least 1 member (PC or PC/SSN) in the congested state.

Workaround: Use GTT without using an Application-Group or use GTT with traffic rates that ensure no members get congested.

CSCeb58198- ITP-R4:unexpected parsing error sctp dest addr change

Symptom: Incorrectly formatted cSctpExtDestAddressStateChange notification occurs when SCTP association is offloaded to Versatile Interface Processor (VIP).

Conditions: This problem occurs on a Cisco 2600 or 7500 series router that is running Cisco IOS 12.2(4)MB12.

Workaround: Do not offload Signaling System 7 (SS7) links or disable notification.

Further Problem Description: Use the following commands to configure the SS7 link that is running on VIP and enable the destination address notification.

CSCdz71127 - corrupted packet can cause input queue wedge - reg to CSCdx02283

Cisco routers and switches that are running Cisco IOS software and configured to process Internet Protocol version 4 (IPv4) packets are vulnerable to a Denial of Service (DoS) attack. A rare sequence of crafted IPv4 packets sent directly to the device may cause the input interface to stop processing traffic once the input queue is full. No authentication is required to process the inbound packet. Processing of IPv4 packets is enabled by default. Devices that are running only IP version 6 (IPv6) are not affected. A workaround is available.

Cisco has made software available, free of charge, to correct the problem.

CSCeb15156 - ITP: Bus error after SCTP association termination

Symptom: Traceback or system failure with mgd_timer_start in the traceback after termination of a locally multihomed SCTP association.

Conditions: Occurs on Cisco 2600 or Cisco 7500 series routers that are running Cisco IOS Release 12.2(4)MB10 or Cisco IOS 12.2(4)MB11. Termination of a locally multihomed SCTP association with at least one other active association may trigger this system failure.

Workaround: Disable local multihoming by configuring only a single IP address for local SCTP endpoints.

CSCeb23816 - ITP: Memory leak on link test failure

Symptom: Memory leak when cs7 link is mis-configured to incorrect variant or adjacent signalling point.

Conditions: Occurs on Cisco 2600 or Cisco 7500 series routers that are running Cisco IOS 12.2(4)MB10 or Cisco IOS 12.2(4)MB11 release of the ITP product.

Workaround: Correctly configure links.

CSCeb39832 - ITP switch-over while viewing mtp3 route table

Symptom: A Cisco ITP may switch over to the secondary processor if an x-listed route is removed while an operator views the route table using the show cs7 route command.

Workaround: Do not page through the route table. Setting the terminal length to zero prevents this.

CSCeb42215 - ITP: Processor memory corruption crash

Symptom: System failure with block overrun of the redzone using SCTP bundling over IP interfaces that have a MTU size greater than 1500 bytes.

Conditions: Occurs on Cisco 2600 or Cisco 7500 series routers that are running Cisco IOS 12.2(4)MB4-MB11. The IP interfaces with MTU sizes greater than 1500 bytes allows SCTP to bundle more than 1500 bytes into a 1500 byte buffer. Bundling more than 1500 bytes causes a memory overwrite of adjacent memory blocks, which then causes this system failure.

Workaround: On IP interfaces with MTU sizes that are greater than 1500 bytes, reduce the MTU sizes to 1500 bytes.

CSCeb46313 - ITP system failure when configuring removed port adapter

Symptom: ITP system failure when configuring a port adapter that is removed from the system or is not properly seated after OIR.

Workaround: Make sure that the port adapter is correctly seated within the Versatile Interface Processor (VIP). Do not attempt to configure hardware that is removed.

Open Caveats—Cisco IOS Release 12.2(4) MB11

No open caveats specific to Cisco IOS Release 12.2(4) MB11 require documentation in the release notes.

Resolved Caveats—Cisco IOS Release 12.2(4) MB11

All the caveats listed in this section are resolved in Cisco IOS Release 12.2(4) MB11. This section describes only severity 1 and 2 caveats and select severity 3 caveats.

CSCea59369 - ITP R4: GTT MAP entries with summary routes don't come up

Symptom: Global title translation (GTT) MAP entries have the PC in the unavail state even though the MTP3 route table has summary routes that match the MAP entry in the avail state.

Conditions: The situation would occur whenever summary routes are used in conjunction with GTT MAP entries that match those summary routes.

Workaround: Ensure that for each GTT entry a non summary route exists.

CSCea65446 - ITP-R4 MB10: set plan-capacity-send only - sh link util causes crash

Symptom: System failure can occur when link planning capacity is incorrectly configured.

Conditions: On Cisco 7500 series routers that are running Cisco IOS Release 12.2(4)MB10, the following conditions produce the problem:

No global defaults are configured for plan capacity.

Receive planning capacity is specified on a link, but send planning capacity is not specified on any other link in the linkset.

Send planning capacity is specified on a link, but receive planning capacity is not specified on any other link in the linkset.

The show cs7 linkset utilization command is issued.

The following is an example of an incorrect configuration:

conf t
cs7 instance 0 linkset to-STP1
link 0 sctp 10.2.3.4 10.4.5.6 5000 5000
   plan-capacity-send 100000

The following is an example of a correct configuration:

conf t
cs7 util-plan-capacity  

Or

conf t
cs7 instance 0 linkset to-STP1
link 0 sctp 10.2.3.4 10.4.5.6 5000 5000
   plan-capacity-send 100000
   plan-capacity-rcvd 100000

Workaround: Always specify a send and receive planning capacity or use the global default.

CSCea72856 - RCP for nonexistent cluster but member configd must be responded

Symptom: If an adjacent node sends the ITP an RCP (routeset cluster prohibited test) message or RCR, the ITP will not respond with a TCA or TCR. This occurs when the concerned cluster is not configured on the ITP, and there are one or more members within that cluster configured, and available or restricted on the ITP. As a result, the adjacent node will not be able to route messages for those members to the ITP.

Conditions: This happens only in ANSI networks where cluster routes are in use. It occurs when a node adjacent to the ITP has cluster routes toward the ITP, and the ITP has only member routes configured within that cluster.

Since the ITP has no cluster route configured, it would not have sent a TCP or TCR in the first place to the adjacent node. The adjacent node is not expected to spontaneously send RCP or RCR without first receiving TCP or TCR. Therefore, the likelihood of the occurrence of this caveat is tied to the behavior of the adjacent node.

Workaround: There is no workaround.

CSCea74594 - ITP R4: enhance nvgen of route/ls to output ls first

Symptom: show cs7 linkset command displays linksets with adjacent pc 0.0.0 that are unexpected

Conditions: When user modifies the startup_config file to include routes that reference linksets that are not listed in the startup_config file.

Workaround: Modify the startup_config file to NOT include routes that reference linksets that are not listed in the startup_config. Reload the box after modifying the startup_config.

CSCea74624 - ITP-R4: show cs7 acct does not display stats for all dest linksets

Symptom: The show cs7 accounting commands when used with the point code filter display options do not show accounting data for all linksets.

Workaround: Do not use the point code filter option when displaying the accounting data or, as an alternative, use the include filter option.

CSCea76431 - Performance degradation of 2600 MTP2 links

Symptom: Under high link utilization, Signaling System 7 (SS7) links may drop because of corruption in FISU/LSSU. This problem is particularly more prevalent on the 2600.

Workaround: There is no workaround.

CSCea79627 - Flapping Destination status causes memory loss and locked route tabl

Symptom: The ITP can lose memory and the routing table will not allow changes when an adjacent destination changes status rapidly between Prohibited and Allowed or Restricted. For this to happen:

The direct linkset to the adjacent destination is unavailable, and

An alternate route to the destination is configures over an available linkset, and

The ITP receives a constant stream of TFP followed by TFR or TFA over the alternate route concerning the destination.

Workaround: There is no workaround.

CSCea79682 - Format error in %CS7MTP3-5-NONADJSIG message

Symptom: A Cisco Internet Transfer Point may print the following malformatted message:

%CS7MTP3-5-NONADJSIG: Received 3-4-1 message from non adjacent node OPC =

The message should read as follows:

%CS7MTP3-5-NONADJSIG: Received TFP message from non adjacent node OPC = 3-4-1

Workaround: There is no workaround.

CSCea79999 - Configuration inconsistencies

Symptom: The following symptoms would occur if multiple instances are configured:

CLI does not enforce configuration of the local point code before configuration of linksets.

CLI allows removal of network-name while linkset is configured.

CLI allows removal of linkset from different instance.

Workaround:

Do not try to configure linksets before local point code.

Do not try to remove network-name while linkset is configured.

Do not try to remove linkset from different instance.

CSCea87000 - ITP: rsp crash when sending TFRs for more restrictive cluster member

Symptom: ITPs that are running MB10 images are susceptible to a caveat if using ANSI cluster routing in situations in which a member of a cluster becomes restricted while the overall cluster remains available. The result of this caveat is a RSP software reload.

Workaround: There is no workaround.

Open Caveats—Cisco IOS Release 12.2(4) MB10

No open caveats specific to Cisco IOS Release 12.2(4) MB10 require documentation in the release notes.

Resolved Caveats—Cisco IOS Release 12.2(4) MB10

All the caveats listed in this section are resolved in Cisco IOS Release 12.2(4) MB10. This section describes only severity 1 and 2 caveats and select severity 3 caveats.

CSCea08661 - ITP sends TFx mgmt msg with wrong sls value (ITU only)

Symptom: The IP Transfer Point (ITP) is inserting a random signalling link selector value into non link-related Message Transfer Part Level 3 (MTP3) management messages such as TFA, TFP, TFR, and TRA.

ITU Q-704 requires such messages to be send with an SLS value of zero. However ANSI specifications do not require the use of an SLS value of zero for non link-related messages.

This causes severe interoperability problems with Lucent DNCP and Comverse SMV. Both devices discard all TFx messages send by the ITP.

Workaround: There is no workaround.

CSCea08752 - TFA sent if RST is received immediately after broadcast TFP

Symptom: If a Route-Set-Test (RST) message is received by the ITP shortly (less than two seconds) after the Transfer-Prohibited (TFP) message, then the ITP responds wrongly with a Transfer-Allowed (TFA) message.

The ITP sends broadcast Transfer-Prohibited (TFP) messages when the destination become unavailable due to a signalling link failure. A signalling point receiving such messages will start a Route-Set-Test procedure as described in Q-704. Part of that procedure is an RST message from the signalling end point to the ITP to verify the status of the affected destination.

Workaround: There is no workaround.

CSCea35357 - ITP-R4: RSP crashes during heavy linkset flapping

Symptom: A Cisco ITP reloads when a shutdown command is issued on an M2PA link while that link is in the process of connecting to the remote ITP. This problem is very rarely seen.

Workaround: There is no workaround.

CSCdz84201 - Missing route entries when walking cItpRouteTable using SNMP

Symptom: When walking the cItpRouteTable in the CISCO-ITP-RT-MIB, routes may be missing in certain configurations.

The show cs7 route detail command displays the following output:

13/14            INACC     1 itp-d               UNAVAIL allowed UNAVAIL   
14/14            INACC     1 sp-2a               UNAVAIL allowed UNAVAIL   
14/14                       1 sp-a                UNAVAIL allowed UNAVAIL   
15/14            INACC     1 itp-d               UNAVAIL allowed UNAVAIL 

The following is output from an SNMP walk of the ItpRouteTable in the CISCO-ITP-RT-MIB.my Management Information Base:

system : 13 : 16383 : 1 : itp-d : 2
                                    <== sp-a should here
system : 14 : 16383 : 1 : sp-2a : 4
system : 15 : 16383 : 1 : itp-d : 2
system : 15 : 16383 : 1 : stp-c : 2

Conditions: On Cisco 2600 series routers that are running Cisco IOS 12.2(4)MB5 release and Cisco IOS 12.2(4)MB9 release of the ITP product.

When routes with the same priority are specified using secondary point code, the route may be skipped during a walk of the cItpRouteTable.

Workaround: Reorder the configuration statements for the involved linkset or rename them to have equal length names. You can avoid the problem by renaming the "sp-a" linkset to "sp-1a" so that the names are the same length.

CSCdz71361 - ITP: linkset stuck in available without active links

Symptom: Concurrent transmission facility failures and SNMP polls can cause the ITP to report a linkset as available while no links in that linkset are active.

Workaround: Performing a shut and no shut of linkset or links sometimes, but not always, recovers from this situation. If this occurs, then switching over to the secondary processor or a reload is necessary.

Shut and no shut of linkset or links sometimes but not always recovers from this situation. If this occurs, then switching over to the secondary processor or a reload is necessary.

Workaround: There is no workaround.

CSCea03192

Symptom: ITP: Links remain permanently in FAILED state

Under rare circumstances, a Signaling System 7 (SS7) link may get stuck in state FAILED.

Workaround: Perform a switch-over to a secondary processor or to reload the ITP.

CSCea08661

Symptom: ITP sends TFx mgmt msg with wrong SLS value (ITU only)

The ITP is inserting a random signaling link selector (SLS) value into non link-related mtp3 management messages such as TFA, TFP, TFR, TRA. ITU Q-704 requires such messages to be sent with an SLS value of zero.

ANSI specifications do not require using SLS zero for non link-related messages. Doing so causes severe interoperability problems with Lucent DNCP and Comverse SMV. Both devices discard all TFx messages sent by the ITP.

Workaround: There is no workaround.

CSCea08752

Symptom: TFA sent if RST is received immediately after broadcast TFP

The ITP sends broadcast Transfer-Prohibited (TFP) messages when the destination becomes unavailable due to a signaling link failure. A signaling point receiving such messages starts a Route-Set-Test (RST) procedure as described in ITU Q-704. Part of that procedure sends an RST message from the signaling end point to the ITP to verify the status of the affected destination.

If the RST message is received by the ITP shortly (less than two seconds) after the TFP then the ITP responds wrongly with a Transfer-Allowed (TFA) message.

Workaround: There is no workaround.

CSCdz28216

Symptom: When a remote process outage occurs at an adjacent node for a duration less than the ITP T1 timer defined for the link to the adjacent node, the link may stay unavailable indefinitely. If this occurs, the link will remain in this state until the link is shut down and restarted. This issue will only occur when the CS7 variant is configured for ITU.

Workaround: There is no workaround.

CSCdz30119

On a Cisco 2600 or Cisco 7500 series router that is running Cisco IOS Release 12.2(4)MB4 or Cisco IOS Release 12.2(4)MB8 release of the ITP product, a MIB variable returns an incorrect value for the network indicator if the network indicator is not set to the default value of national.

cs7 network-indicator ?
  international  International network
  national       National network
  reserved       Reserved for national use
  spare          Spare (for international use only)

Workaround: Ignore the index value returned from the cItpSpPointCodeNi table and use the network indicator specified on the linkset (cItpSpLinksetNi).

CSCdz37993

Symptom: When the first link in the second linkset of a combined linkset is activated, a changeback declaration (CBD) MSU is erroneously sent on the link being activated. The erroneous CBD is causes the adjacent node to respond with a changeback acknowledgement (CBA) MSU which is correctly ignored by the ITP. This message exchange is harmless.

Workaround: There is no workaround.

CSCdy13275

Symptom: The ITP may send excessive transfer-prohibited messages to an adjacent node during an adjacent SP restart when both cluster routes and member routes exist to the same destination and use the same route.

Workaround: Remove the member routes.

CSCdx59699

Under rare circumstances, it is possible for a linkset to remain unavailable, although the links in the linkset are available. This may occur if the adjacent node does not send a TRA in response to an adjacent SP restart, the ITP was not configured to disable adjacent SP restart for the adjacent node by using the no adjacent-sp-restart configuration command, and an alternate route to the adjacent node became available after the adjacent SP restart began.

Workaround: Remove the linkset definition to the adjacent node, add it back again, and then activate the linkset.

CSCdx70251

When low-speed links are not aligned, MTP2 LSSU messages are constantly sent from the adjacent node. These are short messages and they constantly repeat on the wire/channel. The processing of these link proving messages can drive Versatile Interface Processor (VIP) CPU up and under extreme conditions can make it difficult for the VIP to service other low-speed links. Unless there are error conditions that cause eight or more low-speed links to be in the LSSU proving state at the same time, the VIP CPU is not a concern.

Workaround: A software change allows the PA-MCX-8TE1-M to filter duplicate LSSU messages, thereby avoiding VIP CPU spikes.

CSCdx83439

An ambiguous error is displayed when running the clear cs7 as and clear cs7 asroute commands.

Workaround: Use the clear cs7 all command.

CSCdx83901

The ITP's Global Title Address Conversion feature does not translate addresses correctly when the output address prefix is null (that is, no out-address parameter was specified on the update command in global title translation (GTT) address conversion submode). The absence of an output address prefix is intended to delete the input address prefix. Instead, the GTT address is corrupted and contains the characters "DEFA" in the first four digit positions.

Workaround: Configure the translation feature in such a way that it can be accomplished with output address prefixes that are not null.

CSCdx84452

When ITP runs low of usable system memory, it is possible for a Signaling System 7 (SS7) route to buffer for controlled rerouting indefinitely. The symptom is that message signaling units queue towards the impacted destination will be lost, resulting in application timeouts.

Workaround: Removing and re-adding the impacted route clears the problem.

CSCdx86075

Upon reconfiguration of ITP, including point-code and variant, global title translation (GTT) routing failures may occur. SCCP processing of the MTP3 restart did not completely update the status of MAP entries for newly restarted links.

CSCdx87964

Memory leak causing router to eventually fail. Occurs when traffic arrives via M3UA to be sent out on MTP3 linksets to route that cannot be accessed. This could occur because of remote congestion or no route in the routing table.

Workaround: If the conditions described occur, upgrade the software.

CSCdx92630

The ITP may reload when the global title translation (GTT) configuration is deleted after ITP variant changes. The following message is displayed before the system failure:

%SYS-2-CHUNKFREE: Attempted to free nonchunk memory, chunk <address>, data <address>

This may occur when GTT tables are configured and the ITP variant is changed by using the cs7 variant command. Another scenario involves deleting the ITP variant by using the no cs7 variant command and then issuing the cs7 variant command.

Workaround: Delete the GTT configuration before changing the variant or deleting the variant.

CSCdx94940

The clear cs7 all command does not clear ITP access violation statistics.

Workaround: These statistics can be cleared by issuing a clear cs7 accounting access-violations command.

Open Caveats—Cisco IOS Release 12.2(4) MB5

This section documents possible unexpected behavior by Cisco IOS Release 12.2(4)MB5 and describes only severity 1 and 2 caveats and select severity 3 caveats.

CSCdx40164

When no IP routing is entered and there are more than five links in the linkset, the links may flap.

Workaround: Leave IP routing on as the default.

Resolved Caveats—Cisco IOS Release 12.2(4) MB4

All the caveats listed in this section are resolved in Cisco IOS Release 12.2(4) MB4. This section describes only severity 1 and 2 caveats and select severity 3 caveats.

CSCdt01449

Under very heavy load, a Cisco 2600 series router that is running ITP software may drop Signaling System 7 (SS7) links if the commands show running-config or write memory are used.

CSCdw69561

The ITP waits during a full MTP3 restart for response from all adjacent Signaling System 7 (SS7) nodes. If an adjacent node does not support the MTP3 restart protocol, then the ITP waits as specified in timer T23 before putting any linkset into service.

Using the "no adjacent-restart" linkset configuration also during full MTP3 restart decreases the waiting time for a full restart to finish. This also decreases the downtime after switchover between Route Switch Processors (RSPs).

CSCdw82406

The ITP does not provide measurements of how often mated applications have been used while performing global title translation.

CSCdw88853

When a QoS class becomes unavailable, SS7oIP traffic is discarded. The traffic should be reclassified as "best-effort" and use the default QoS class (class 0).

CSCdw91492

The cs7 inhibit and uninhibit link commands should not be allowed without entering enable mode first.

Open Caveats—Cisco IOS Release 12.2(4) MB3

No open caveats specific to Cisco IOS Release 12.2(4) MB3 require documentation in the release notes.

Resolved Caveats—Cisco IOS Release 12.2(4) MB3

Open Caveats—Cisco IOS Release 12.2(4)MB2

This section documents possible unexpected behavior by Cisco IOS Release 12.2(4)MB2 and describes only severity 1 and 2 caveats and select severity 3 caveats.

CSCdv68797

The ITP reports a route table successfully loaded from file, even if a previous error message indicates the file could not be accessed. This happens if a filename is spelled wrong, or file access through TFTP is not possible.

Workaround: Load the route table from local Flash memory and use the correct spelling.

Resolved Caveats—Cisco IOS Release 12.2(4)MB2

No resolved caveats specific to Cisco IOS Release 12.2(4)MB2 require documentation in the release notes.

Technical Assistance Center

The Cisco Technical Assistance Center (TAC) is available to all customers who need technical assistance with a Cisco product, technology, or solution. Two levels of support are available: the Cisco TAC Web Site and the Cisco TAC Escalation Center.

Cisco TAC inquiries are categorized according to the urgency of the issue:

Priority level 4 (P4)—You need information or assistance concerning Cisco product capabilities, product installation, or basic product configuration.

Priority level 3 (P3)—Your network performance is degraded. Network functionality is noticeably impaired, but most business operations continue.

Priority level 2 (P2)—Your production network is severely degraded, impacting significant aspects of business operations. No workaround is available.

Priority level 1 (P1)—Your production network is down, and a critical impact to business operations will occur if service is not restored quickly. No workaround is available.

The Cisco TAC resource that you choose is based on the priority of the problem and the conditions of service contracts, when applicable.

Cisco TAC Web Site

You can use the Cisco TAC Web Site to resolve P3 and P4 issues yourself, saving both cost and time. The site provides around-the-clock access to online tools, knowledge bases, and software. To access the Cisco TAC Web Site, go to this URL:

http://www.cisco.com/tac

All customers, partners, and resellers who have a valid Cisco service contract have complete access to the technical support resources on the Cisco TAC Web Site. The Cisco TAC Web Site requires a Cisco.com login ID and password. If you have a valid service contract but do not have a login ID or password, go to this URL to register:

http://www.cisco.com/register/

If you are a Cisco.com registered user, and you cannot resolve your technical issues by using the Cisco TAC Web Site, you can open a case online by using the TAC Case Open tool at this URL:

http://www.cisco.com/tac/caseopen

If you have Internet access, we recommend that you open P3 and P4 cases through the Cisco TAC Web Site.

Cisco TAC Escalation Center

The Cisco TAC Escalation Center addresses priority level 1 or priority level 2 issues. These classifications are assigned when severe network degradation significantly impacts business operations. When you contact the TAC Escalation Center with a P1 or P2 problem, a Cisco TAC engineer automatically opens a case.

To obtain a directory of toll-free Cisco TAC telephone numbers for your country, go to this URL:

http://www.cisco.com/warp/public/687/Directory/DirTAC.shtml

Before calling, please check with your network operations center to determine the level of Cisco support services to which your company is entitled: for example, SMARTnet, SMARTnet Onsite, or Network Supported Accounts (NSA). When you call the center, please have available your service agreement number and your product serial number.
