snasw cpname

To define a control point (CP) name for SNASw, use the snasw cpname command in global configuration mode. To deactivate SNASw and remove the CP definition, use the no form of this command.

snasw cpname {netid.cpname | netid [hostname | ip-address interface-name]} [hung-pu-awareness timer-value] [hung-session-awareness timer-value] [locate-timeout timeout-value] [max-pacing-window max-value] [remove-rscvs] [station-segmentation]

no snasw cpname

Syntax Description

netid.cpname

Fully qualified CP name for this node, consisting of both network ID and CP name.

netid

Partial CP name, which consists of only a network ID. If this option is selected, you must also configure the hostname or IP address operands to complete the fully qualified CP name.

hostname

(Optional) Indicates a CP name that is defined by using the hostname which is configured on the router. When configuring this operand, code a netid only. The last eight characters of the hostname are used to complete the CP name.

ip-address interface-name

(Optional) Indicates the CP name that is defined by deriving the CP name from the IP address on the interface that is indicated in the interface-name. When configured, this operand requires a netid operand. In addition, a portion of the CP name can be configured. The remaining characters of the CP name that are not configured are generated from the IP address that is indicated.

The generated characters are derived from a hexadecimal format of the IP address for the interface that is specified.

hung-pu-awareness timer-value

(Optional) Indicates the interval at which Dependent Logical Unit Requestor (DLUR) supported physical units (PUs) are checked to see if they are hung in a pending activate PU state. If a PU is in this state for two consecutive iterations of this timer, then the PU is considered hung. No attempt is made to recover the hung PU, but for diagnostic purposes message DLUR_LOG_23 (A REQACTPU RSP has not been received. Possible hung PU problem) is written to the problem determination log. If the PU later becomes activated, message DLUR_LOG_24 (A PU previously logged as possibly hung is no longer possibly hung) is issued. The valid range is from 5 to 65535 seconds. If this keyword is not specified, the default timer-value is 300 seconds.

hung-session-awareness timer-value

(Optional) Indicates the length of time when a new intermediate session that is still in a non-active state is considered hung. No attempt is made to clean up the hung session, but for diagnostic purposes message SCM_LOG_16 (Slow session activation detected) is issued. The valid range is from 5 to 65535 seconds. If this keyword is not specified, the default timer-value is 180 seconds.

locate-timeout timeout-value

(Optional) Indicates the time when an Advanced Peer to Peer Networking (APPN) Locate Search message is considered lost and is cleaned up. This will likely result in the failure of the session for which the Locate Search message was sent. When this condition occurs message DS_LOG_18 (Locate search timed out) is issued. The valid range is from 0 to 65535 seconds. A value of 0 indicates that no timeout occurs. A value from 1 to 29 seconds is rounded up to 30 seconds. If this keyword is not specified the default timeout-value is 540 seconds.

max-pacing-window max-value

(Optional) Indicates the upper limit of the Receive Pacing window size for intermediate sessions. When variable pacing is used, the Receive Pacing window size will not exceed this value. It may be necessary to configure a small Receive Pacing window size (such as 7) to improve performance when both batch and interactive traffic share the same network. The valid range is from 7 to 65535. If a value is not specified, the default is 64.

remove-rscvs

(Optional) Indicates that Route Selection Control Vectors (RSCVs) will be removed from incoming BINDs that are received from an upstream node before forwarding the BINDs downstream. Removing RSCVs from BINDs enables a downstream network node (NN) that is connected over a low entry networking (LEN) link to receive the BINDs and forward them to the destination node.

station-segmentation

(Optional) Sends all segments (for example, FIS, MIS, and LIS) to a particular LU before sending segments to another LU, which prevents PU 2.0 devices (that do not support segment interleaving) from generating sense code 80070000. Use this keyword for XID0 devices.

Usage Guidelines

You can also deactivate SNASw without removing the snasw cpname definition by using the snasw stop privileged EXEC command which enables you to stop and restart SNASw without losing the SNASw configuration. If you use no snasw cpname, all SNASw configuration commands that were entered will be lost.

Coding a CP name is required for SNASw. Only one snasw cpname command is allowed at a time. You cannot change the snasw cpname command without first deleting the previous definition by using the no form of the command. If SNASw is active, the no form deactivates it. If SNASw is inactive, using snasw cpname activates it.

Examples

(Optional) Specifies the link name upon which the data-link control (DLC) trace is filtered (one to eight characters). All incoming and outgoing frames that match this link are traced.

session session-address

(Optional) Specifies the session address that needs to be filtered. The session-address argument must be in the 3-byte hexadecimal format (0-FFFFFFFF).

port port-name

(Optional) Specifies the port name upon which the port is filtered (one to eight characters). All incoming and outgoing frames that match this port are traced.

rmac mac-address-value

(Optional) Specifies the MAC address, in non-canonical format, upon which the DLC trace is filtered. All incoming and outgoing frames that match this MAC address are traced.

rtp rtp-name

(Optional) Specifies the RealTime Transport Protocol (RTP) name upon which RTP is filtered (one to eight characters). All incoming and outgoing frames that match this RTP connection name are traced.

type

(Optional) Indicates that one or more frame type filters follow.

cls

(Optional) Indicates that commands to the local DLC are traced.

hpr-cntl

(Optional) Indicates that the High-Performance Routing (HPR) format identifier 5 (FID5), which does not carry a Systems Network Architecture (SNA) data payload, is traced.

hpr-data

(Optional) Indicates that the HPR format identifier 5 (FID5), which carries an SNA data payload, is traced.

isr

(Optional) Indicates that the SNA and Advanced Peer-to-Peer Networking (APPN) format identifier 2 (FID2) is traced.

12.2(33)SRA

This command was integrated into Cisco IOS Release 12.2(33)SRA.


Usage Guidelines

The snasw dlcfilter command is used to limit the output of the snasw dlctrace command to a manageable amount of trace data. Running the snasw dlctrace command consumes CPU and memory. Using the snasw dlcfilter command limits the CPU and memory consumption to only the frames that are targeted for tracing.

Up to four different types of filters can be in place at once. If the type filter is coded, the frame will pass the type filter and any of the matching filters, that are coded to be included in the trace.

Examples

The following example shows how to configure the snasw dlcfilter command by adding a link to the dlcfilter list, adding a remote MAC address to the dlcfilter list, and filtering the dlctrace on frames of type XID:

Router(config)# snasw dlcfilter link cmc1link
Router(config)# snasw dlcfilter rmac 4001.1234.1001
Router(config)# snasw dlcfilter type xid

snasw dlctrace

To trace frames arriving and leaving Switching Services (SNASw), use the snasw dlctrace command in global configuration mode. To deactivate the capture of frame data and free the storage buffer used to capture the data, use the no form of this command.

snasw dlctrace [buffer-size buffer-size-value] [file filename [timestamp]] [frame-size frame-size-value | auto-terse] [format [brief | detail | analyzer]] [nostart]

no snasw dlctrace

Syntax Description

buffer-size buffer-size-value

(Optional) Specifies the size (in kilobytes) of the data-link control (DLC) trace buffer requested. The minimum buffer size is 100, and the maximum is 64000.

file filename

(Optional) Specifies the filename for the DLC trace buffer file when this file is written to the file server. Use the following format: protocol://host/path/filename.

If the output file size exceeds 32MB, the first 32MB will be in the file with the name filename, the next 32MB will be in the file with the name filename.01, and so on. Note that with formatting, the output may be of different size than the buffer-size.

timestamp

(Optional) Appends the current date and time to the end of the file when it is dumped.

frame-size frame-size-value

(Optional) Indicates the size of the frame that is traced within the DLC trace. All data beyond the size value is truncated and is not included in the trace. The default is that the entire frame is traced.

auto-terse

(Optional) Indicates that logical unit (LU)-LU and system services control points (SSCP)-LU session data frames should be truncated after the Systems Network Architecture (SNA) request/response (RH). Also truncates NMVTs on the SSCP-physical unit (PU) session. Control frames (for example, exchange identification [XID], BIND, Activate Physical Unit [ACTPU]) are traced in their entirety.

format

(Optional) Indicates the format the DLC trace is written to when writing to a file server. Valid values are brief, detail, and analyzer:

brief

(Optional) Indicates that a text file is written with a one-line-per-frame summary for each frame.

detail

(Optional) Indicates that a text file is written with a frame summary line followed by a complete hexadecimal dump of the frame.

analyzer

(Optional) Indicates a binary file is generated that is readable by several popular network analyzer products. This format uses the Network Associates Sniffer file format.

nostart

(Optional) Indicates that the specified trace is not to be started when the subsystem is started.


Defaults

Tracing is off.
If a value for the buffer-size-value argument is not specified, then the default is 500, creating a 500-KB buffer.

12.2SX

This command is supported in the Cisco IOS Release 12.2SX train. Support in a specific 12.2SX release of this train depends on your feature set, platform, and platform hardware.


Usage Guidelines

Use the snasw dlctrace command when directed by service personnel or when analysis of frame data entering and leaving SNASw is necessary.

The snasw dlctrace command copies frames into a memory buffer, which can degrade router performance. Therefore, care should be taken when using this command. When issued on a highly used system, the snasw dlcfilter command should be used in conjunction with the snasw dlctrace command to limit the output of the trace.

Use the snasw dump command to dump the trace data to a file server or the show snasw dlctrace command to display captured frames on the console.

When the analyzer format is used, portions of the frame are reconstructed from their actual representation on the data link. Because of this format, portions of the data in the header portion of the frame are modified. Specifically, if Routing Information Field (RIF) data was present on the actual data-link frame, that information is omitted in the dlctrace. In addition, information in the Logical Link Control (LLC) header (for example, Nr, Ns counts) is not reliably transferred to the traced frame. However, the remainder of the frame, including all Systems Network Architecture (SNA) content, is a reliable representation of the frame as it appeared on the actual upstream or downstream link.

Examples

The following are examples of how to configure the snasw dlctrace command:

snasw dlctrace
snasw dlctrace buffer-size 5000 file tftp://10.69.120.21/dlcfiles/dlc/trc

snasw dlus

To specify parameters related to Dependent Logical Unit Requestor (DLUR) or Dependent Logical Unit Server (DLUS) functionality, use the snasw dlus command in global configuration mode. To remove the data specified in a previous snasw dlus command, use the no form of this command.

snasw dlus primary-dlus-name [backup backup-dlus-name] [prefer-active] [retry interval count] [once]

no snasw dlus

Syntax Description

primary-dlus-name

Specifies the fully qualified name of the primary DLUS (3 to 17 characters).

backup backup-dlus-name

(Optional) Indicates configuration of a backup DLUS. A backup DLUS is used when the primary DLUS is unreachable or cannot service a specific downstream device. The fully qualified name of the backup DLUS is 3 to 17 characters in length.

prefer-active

(Optional) Indicates that if an active DLUR or DLUS connection was established, an incoming physical unit (PU) will retry exclusively on the active DLUS connection and will not attempt to connect to a different DLUS.

retry interval count

(Optional) Indicates that the DLUR retry parameters follow this statement. The interval argument indicates the time period between attempts to connect a DLUS if one is not serving a specific PU. The count argument indicates the number of times the current or primary DLUS is retried before an attempt is made to connect to a backup or inactive DLUS.

once

(Optional) Instructs the DLUR to attempt only one retry cycle (with primary and backup (if configured) DLUS, according to either the default retry values or to the retry values specified by the retry keyword) to request DLUS services. If the service requests are not answered, the downstream link will be disconnected.


Defaults

If the prefer-active keyword is not specified, each connected downstream station will attempt to connect to the primary DLUS or backup DLUS until the device receives DLUS services.

To copy problem determination logs and traces from internal buffers to an external file server, use the snasw dump command in privileged EXEC mode.

snasw dump {all | dlctrace | ipstrace | summary-ipstrace | pdlog}

Syntax Description

all

Indicates that all configured trace and problem determination buffers should be transferred. The file keyword must be configured on the enabling configuration command for the buffers to be dumped. Traces that run but do not have the (See the "Usage Guidelines Section.) file keyword coded are not transferred.

dlctrace

Indicates that the data-link control (DLC) trace buffer is transferred to a file server. If file keyword is configured on the snasw dlctrace command, the URL specified is used for transferring the DLC trace file. If file keyword is not configured on the snasw dlctrace command, the transfer protocol defaults to TFTP, and the user is prompted for the remote host and filename for the transferred file.

ipstrace

Indicates that the InterProcess Signal (IPS) trace buffer is transferred to a file server. If the file is configured on the snasw ipstrace command, the URL specified is used for transferring the ipstrace file. If file keyword is not configured on the snasw ipstrace command, the transfer protocol defaults to TFTP, and the user is prompted for the remote host and filename for the transferred file.

Usage Guidelines

Use the snasw ipstrace command when directed by Switching Services (SNASw) personnel.

The snasw ipstrace command copies frames into a memory buffer, which can affect router performance. Therefore, care should be taken when using this command.

The ipstrace information is stored in a cyclic buffer allocated out of main processor memory. Use the snasw dump command to dump the binary trace information to a file server or the show snasw ipstrace command to display captured IPS trace information to the console. The IPS trace is a low-level internal trace.

Examples

The following is an example of how to configure the snasw ipstrace command:

snasw ipstrace buffer-size 1000 file tftp://myhost/path/file

12.2SX

This command is supported in the Cisco IOS Release 12.2SX train. Support in a specific 12.2SX release of this train depends on your feature set, platform, and platform hardware.


Usage Guidelines

Use the snasw link command to configure upstream connections to SNA data hosts, services, and DLUS nodes. Do not use this command to establish downstream connections to client workstations and devices that are serviced by the SNA switch. Configure client workstations and devices to connect into the SNA switch by configuring an outbound connection on these devices that specifies the MAC address of a port that is active on SNASw. SNASw then creates the downstream link dynamically when the workstation or device connects to SNASw.

If using the ip-dest keyword and using a DNS name instead of an IP address, the DNS name is resolved to an IP address at the time the definition is entered (or the time SNASw is started) and will remain resolved to that same address for the duration that SNASw is active. The DNS name is not resolved to an IP address each time the link is restarted.

If the link fails and SNASw switches to a non-preferred NNS (one without the nns keyword configured), SNASw will return CP-CP sessions to the preferred NNS when the NNS link becomes active again. Also, when the nns keyword is configured on a link, that link can be automatically restarted, even after the snasw stop link command is issued. See the snasw stop link command for details.

When using the host-dest keyword, the hostname must be resolved locally by either ip ip host or ipv6 host commands or by a Domain Name Server before the SNASw port is configured.

Examples

The following are examples of how to configure the snasw link command:

snasw link LINKCMC1 port TOKENO rmac 4000.333.4444 rsap 8
snasw link HOSTIP port HPRIP ip-dest 172.18.3.44

12.2SX

This command is supported in the Cisco IOS Release 12.2SX train. Support in a specific 12.2SX release of this train depends on your feature set, platform, and platform hardware.


Usage Guidelines

The snasw location command is typically used when a low-entry networking node (LEN) node link is established with a destination logical unit (LU). The snasw location command allows Switching Services (SNASw) to route session requests over the LEN node link to the resources named.

If the LEN node has a unique CP name configured, use the owning-cp keyword. Use the xid keyword when there is no CP name for the LEN node or conntype dyncplen is configured on the snasw port. The XID node-id of the LEN node must be unique for the location statement.

When a LEN node connects into an SNASw node, SNASw dynamically learns the CP name of the LEN and places it in its directory. In addition, SNASw dynamically learns the LU names of all LUs on the LEN that initiate independent sessions. Only define the location when an independent logical unit (ILU) on a LEN device is not sharing the node's CP name and does not initiate the first session. In all other cases, the LU's location will be learned dynamically.

The directory entry is created the next time the LEN node connects. If there is already a link to the LEN node active and you add a new SNASw location statement, it will not take effect until the next time the LEN CP connects.


Note Do not use the snasw location command to predefine the location of any resource that can be found dynamically using Advanced Peer-to-Peer Networking (APPN) searches (for example, resources on upstream APPN nodes or upstream or downstream ENs).


It is permissible to use the wildcard character "*" in location definitions to allow a definition to generate name associations for multiple devices. When the wildcard character is used for this purpose, the * symbol must be coded in both the resource-name and the cpname argument. If any real device attaches with a CP name that matches the non-wildcard portion of the owning-cp cpname keyword—argument pair specified, a location association will be made that replaces the wildcard characters of the CPname in the position of the resource-name argument. For example, if a definition snasw location NETA.LU*01 owning-cp NETA.CP* is coded and CP with the name NETA.CPABCD connects, then the resource name NETA.LUABCD01 will be defined to SNASw with owning-cp NETA.CPABCD.

You can also use the wildcard character "*" in location definitions to allow a specific device to connect under different CP names, but a single device cannot connect under multiple CP names at the same time. In this case, the * symbol must be used in only the cpname argument and not the resource-name argument. When the device connects with a CP name that matches the nonwildcard portion of the cpname argument, a corresponding location association will be made for the resource-name argument with that CP name.

Examples

The following example shows how to configure the location of a resource when the LEN node has CP name configured:

snasw location NETA.INDEPLU owning-cp NETA.LENHOSTA

This command is supported in the Cisco IOS Release 12.2SX train. Support in a specific 12.2SX release of this train depends on your feature set, platform, and platform hardware.


Usage Guidelines

The snasw msgdump command is only invoked the first time the target message is encountered. To trigger automatic dumping after this first instance of the target message, remove the configuration and configure again the command by entering the no snasw msgdump command followed by the snasw msgdump command.

When the message dump is invoked, an SNA Alert is sent to the local node's Alert focal point. To verify the existence of an Alert focal point, use the show snasw node command and look at the value of the "Alert focal point" entry.

Usually, SNASw will have an Alert focal point when the router's has an active upstream link to a network node server.

If that link is active and there is still no focal point, enter the following command in the NetView mainframe application:

FOCALPT CHANGE,FPCAT=ALERT,TARGET=cpname
 
   

where cpname is either the CP name of the NN server for SNASw or the CP name of SNASw itself.

The Alert ID of the SNA Alert sent is x'DAED5B0B'.


Caution Use the writecore keyword only under the direction of a technical support representative. Use of the writecore keyword puts a large load on the router and may cause momentary network disruption.

To use the writecore keyword successfully with the snasw msgdump command, you must configure the exception dump command to specify a destination server. By default, the write core operation is attempted using TFTP; the core file is written under the /tftpboot directory. If you want to specify the File Transfer Protocol (FTP) for exception instead, use the ip ftp user, the ip ftp password, and the exception protocol ftp commands to configure user name and password information.

Because the writecore keyword creates a large file, it is recommended that you compress this file to save server space. Use the exception core-file compress command to compress the file.

Examples

The following example shows how to use the snasw msgdump command:

snasw msgdump %SNASW-6-CS_LOG_60

15.0(1)M

This command was integrated into Cisco IOS Release 15.0(1)M. The ipv4 and ipv6 keywords were added.


Usage Guidelines

More than one port can be configured (with different port names). A configured port cannot be redefined without first deleting the port using the no form of the port command.


Note Two ports cannot be defined on the same interface unless different values are configured for the sap and hrp-sap keywords on the ports.


SNASw ports do not dynamically adjust to interface configuration changes that are made when SNASw is active. For example, if you change an interface MAC address or maximum transmission unit (MTU), SNASw may not recognize the new value. If you want to make changes to an interface and want SNASw to adjust to the new interface changes, you may need to either delete and redefine the port that is using that interface or stop and restart SNASw.

The interface must be defined before the ports that use them are defined and activated.

SNASw does not support EtherChannel interfaces (neither port-channel interfaces nor Fast Ethernet interfaces configured with the channel-group command). Do not try to configure a SNASw port with either of these EtherChannel interface types.

When using the hostname keyword, the hostname must be defined on the interface and be resolved locally by either ip host or ipv6 host commands or by a Domain Name Server (DNS) before the SNASw port is configured.

When using the vnname keyword to define a connection network, Cisco recommends that you do not define any links to this port. Configure one port for your defined links to use, without the vnname keyword, and another port with the vnname keyword. No links should use the port with the vnname keyword. This means you may need to also configure a loopback interface for the vnname port.

When the dyncplen keyword is used, a unique cpname must be generated and used locally by SNASw to have a properly functioning APPN connection management and directory function.

When LU 6.2 communications are used on this link, the dialoutlen keyword is needed. A unique cpname must be generated and used locally by SNASw to have a properly functioning APPN connection management and directory function. The keyword is used when link activation to a downstream device is driven by the mainframe dial command.

When the max-links limit is reached, the port does not respond to inbound connection requests from stations attempting to connect to this port. Outbound connections are still permitted. The max-links can be coded only on VDLC and Virtual Token Ring port types.

When the connection network is treated by default as limited resource, the no-limres keyword prevents the remote end from dropping the sessions prematurely (provided that appropriate definitions are also coded on the remote end, such as DISCNT=NO for Physical Unit (PU) or Model in VTAM).

When a port is configured with the nns-required keyword, the port does not respond to downstream connection requests unless this SNASw node has active CP-CP sessions to an upstream network management system (NNS). If a connection has already been made through this SNASw node and then upstream NNS CP-CP connectivity is lost, this SNASw node deactivates all non-HPR links using this port that do not have active LU-LU or Intermediate Session Routing (ISR) sessions.


Note The nns-required keyword is relevant only for ports that will be accepting downstream connections from devices. It is not relevant for upstream ports. This keyword is only valid for Virtual Token Ring and VDLC ports.


Examples

The following examples show how to configure the snasw port command:

Router(config)# snasw port SRBG Virtual-TokenRing0 conntype nohpr
Router(config)# snasw port UPSTREAM TokenRing1/1

12.2SX

This command is supported in the Cisco IOS Release 12.2SX train. Support in a specific 12.2SX release of this train depends on your feature set, platform, and platform hardware.


Usage Guidelines

The arguments for this command should be tuned to match the values specified at the other end of the RTP connection. This endpoint could be another SNA switch router or any other High-Performance Routing (HPR)-capable control point, which will most often be an IBM z/OStm mainframe. In this case, you should match the settings of the HPRPST start option.

The value for each pathswitch timer value must be greater than or equal to the value for the next highest priority timer argument. In other words, the low-priority argument >= medium-priority argument >= high-priority argument >= network-priority argument.

Examples

The following example tunes the RTP pathswitch timers:

router(config)# snasw rtp pathswitch-timers 160 80 40 20

12.2SX

This command is supported in the Cisco IOS Release 12.2SX train. Support in a specific 12.2SX release of this train depends on your feature set, platform, and platform hardware.


Usage Guidelines

Use the snasw start cp-cp command if CP-CP sessions fail permanently or temporarily, but beyond the time frame for automatic CP-CP session retry. If the current state of the node mandates that CP-CP sessions cannot be started to the partner (for example, CP-CP sessions already exist on a different upstream link) or no active adjacent CP matches the cpname named, the command fails.

Typically, Switching Services (SNASw) automatically activates CP-CP sessions as necessary and the snasw start cp-cp command is rarely needed. Frequent CP-CP session failure beyond the time frame for automatic session retry indicates a problem, and should be reported.

Examples

The following is an example of the snasw start cp-cp command:

12.2SX

This command is supported in the Cisco IOS Release 12.2SX train. Support in a specific 12.2SX release of this train depends on your feature set, platform, and platform hardware.


Usage Guidelines

If the primary National Number (NN) server (uplink) fails, CP-CP sessions are established with a backup, if one is available. When the link to the primary recovers, Switching Services (SNASw) retains the CP-CP sessions established with the backup and does not automatically switch back to the primary. To force SNASw to switch back to the primary, use the snasw stop cp-cp command. (If the link to the backup fails, SNASw does switch back to the primary automatically.)

You can also use the snasw stop cp-cp command to clear some fault scenarios, such as hung or nonresponsive CP sessions, allowing the Systems Network Architecture (SNA) switch to potentially restart sessions with the same or alternate destination logical unit (LU).

Examples

The following is an example of the snasw stop cp-cp command:

Usage Guidelines

Use the snasw stop link command to deactivate a link to a specified partner control point (CP). All High-Performance Routing (HPR) sessions established using the link are disconnected. HPR sessions are disrupted only if no alternate route is available.

Normally a link stopped with the snasw stop link command must be restarted by issuing the snasw start link command. However, it will be automatically restarted under the following conditions:

The nns keyword is specified on the snasw link command, and

The SNASw CP did not already re-establish CP-CP sessions with a network node server over another upstream link.

12.2SX

This command is supported in the Cisco IOS Release 12.2SX train. Support in a specific 12.2SX release of this train depends on your feature set, platform, and platform hardware.


Usage Guidelines

The parser automatically displays the word "active" in the source-bridge command in configurations that have SRB enabled. You need not enter the source-bridge command with the active keyword.

Examples

In the following example, Token Rings 129 and 130 are connected via a router:

interface tokenring 0
 source-bridge 129 1 130
!
interface tokenring 1
 source-bridge active 130 1 129
 
   

In the following example, an FDDI ring on one router is connected to a Token Ring on a second router across a data-link switching plus (DLSw+) link:

dlsw local-peer peer-id 132.11.11.2
dlsw remote-peer 0 tcp 132.11.11.3
!
interface fddi 0
 no ip address
 multiring all

dlsw remote-peer 0 tcp 132.11.11.2
!
interface tokenring 0
 no ip address
 multiring all
 source-bridge active 25 1 10
 
   

In the following example, a router forwards frames from a locally attached Token Ring over the Frame Relay using SRB:

source-bridge ring-group 200
!
interface Serial0
 encapsulation frame-relay
!
interface Serial0.30 point-to-point
 frame-relay interface-dlci 30 ietf
 source-bridge 100 1 200 conserve-ring

Usage Guidelines

The Cisco IOS software supports two types of Token Ring LLC2 to Ethernet conversion:

Token Ring LLC2 to Ethernet 802.3 LLC2

Token Ring LLC2 to Ethernet 0x80d5

Use this global configuration command to change the translation behavior. By default, the Cisco IOS software translates Token Ring LLC2 to Ethernet 802.3 LLC2. This command allows you to configure the software to translate Token Ring LLC2 frames into Ethernet 0x80d5 format frames.

This command is useful when you have a non-IBM device attached to an IBM network with devices that are using the nonstandard Token Ring LLC2 to Ethernet 80d5 translation. If you do not configure your router to enable 80d5 processing, the non-IBM and IBM devices will not be able to communicate.

The parameters specifying the current parameters for the processing of 0x80d5 frames are given at the end of the output of the show span command.


Note The 80d5 frame processing option is available only with source-route translational bridging (SR/TLB). It is not available when source-route transparent bridging (SRT) is used.


Use the show span command to verify that 80d5 processing is enabled. If it is, the following line is displayed in the output:

Translation between LLC2 and Ethernet Type II 80d5 is enabled

Examples

The following example enables 0x80d5 processing, removes the translation for service access point (SAP) 08, and adds the translation for SAP 1c:

source-bridge enable-80d5
no source-bridge sap-80d5 08
source-bridge sap-80d5 1c

Related Commands

Command
Description

show span

12.2SX

This command is supported in the Cisco IOS Release 12.2SX train. Support in a specific 12.2SX release of this train depends on your feature set, platform, and platform hardware.


Usage Guidelines

The Cisco IOS software negotiates all transit routes down to the specified size or lower. Use the size argument with this command to prevent timeouts in end hosts by reducing the amount of data they must send in a fixed interval. For example, in some networks containing slow links, it would be impossible to send an 8-KB frame and receive a response within a few seconds. These are standard defaults for an application on a 16-Mb Token Ring. If the frame size is lowered to 516 bytes, then only 516 bytes must be sent and a response received in 2 seconds. This feature is most effective in a network with slow links. The legal values for this argument are 516, 1500, 2052, 4472, 8144, 11407, and 17800 bytes.

Examples

The following example sets the largest frame that can be sent through a ring group to 1500 bytes:

source-bridge largest-frame 8 1500
