Important Notes About IPSec Support on the Cisco ASR 1000 Series Router

This section contains important notes about IPSec support on the Cisco ASR 1000 Series Router:

IPSec CLI Support Notes

This section contains important notes about IPSec CLI support on the Cisco ASR 1000 Series Router.

For information about Cisco IOS IPSec commands, see Cisco IOS Security Command Reference at the following location:

http://www.cisco.com/en/US/docs/ios/security/command/reference/sec_book.html

The show crypto engine command, which displays information about the crypto engine, is not currently supported on the Cisco ASR 1000 Series Router. The unsupported show crypto engine subcommands include the following:

accelerator (Shows crypto accelerator information.)

brief (Shows all crypto engines in the system.)

configuration (Shows crypto engine configuration.)

connections (Shows connection information.)

qos (Shows QoS information.)

The Cisco ASR 1000 Series Router does not currently support the display of send and recv error statistics using the show crypto ipsec sa identity command.

The Cisco ASR 1000 Series Router does not support the clear and show crypto commands on the standby Route Processor (RP) by design.

Counters in the show platform software ipsec fp active flow identifier n command are flagged for reset on read. You can use the show crypto ipsec sa command to obtain integral counters.

The show access-list command output does not show a packet count matching the ACL.

The Cisco ASR 1000 Series Router displays debugging information about the consumption of IPsec datapath memory; use the show platform hardware qfp act feature ipsec datapath memory command in privileged EXEC or diagnostic mode.

The Cisco ASR 1000 Series Router displays debugging information about the crypto engine processor registers; use the show platform software ipsec f0 encryption-processor registers command in privileged EXEC or diagnostic mode.

Crypto Map Support

This section contains important notes about IPSec crypto map support on the Cisco ASR 1000 Series Router:

The Cisco ASR 1000 Series Router does not currently support IPSec tunnel configuration for crypto maps with same IP address on both the tunnel interface and the physical interface. Configurations with different IP addresses are supported.

A possible Embedded Services Processor (ESP) reload may occur if a large number (such as 2000) of crypto maps are removed simultaneously. When removing a large number of crypto maps, it is recommended you unconfigure 500 crypto maps at a time and wait 25 seconds between operations.

The Cisco ASR 1000 Series Router does not support the show access-lists id command under crypto maps.

The Cisco ASR 1000 Series Router does not currently support the interface range command when configuring crypto maps.

IPSec Packet Processing

This section contains important notes about IPSec packet processing on the Cisco ASR 1000 Series Router:

Reloading an Embedded Services Processor (ESP) on the Cisco ASR 1000 Series Router may cause a few IPSec packets to drop before the initialization completes, but the traffic will resume after a brief interval.

The Cisco ASR 1000 Series Router will not discard an incoming IP datagram containing a Payload Length other than 4 in the authentication header (AH). For example, a 96 bit authentication value plus the 3 32-bit word fixed portion for any non-null authentication algorithm will not be discarded.

The Cisco ASR 1000 Series Router does not forward incoming authenticated packets with the IP option field set.

GET VPN Support

This section contains important notes about Group Encrypted Transport VPN (GET VPN) support on the Cisco ASR 1000 Series Router:

To ensure normal traffic flow for a GET VPN configuration on a Cisco ASR 1000 Series Router, a Time Based Anti Replay (TBAR) window-size of greater than 42 seconds is recommended.

The Cisco ASR 1000 Series Router does not currently support the TBAR statistics display in the show crypto gdoi gm replay command.

The Cisco ASR 1000 Series Router does not currently support Easy VPN (EzVPN) and GET VPN on the same interface.

When a Cisco ASR 1000 Series Router is to apply the same Group Domain of Interpretation (GDOI) crypto maps to two interfaces, you should use local addresses for the crypto maps. Non-local address configuration is not supported.

The Cisco ASR 1000 Series Router does not currently support transport mode for TBAR.

The Cisco ASR 1000 Series Router only supports the reassembly of post-fragmented GET VPN packets that are destined for the local Cisco ASR 1000 Series Router in the GET VPN network

An enhancement is added to enable reassembly of IPsec transit traffic. This enhancement applies only to post-encryption fragmented IPsec packets. When this enhancement is enabled, IPsec will detect transit IPsec traffic and reassemble it before decryption. GET VPN transit IPsec traffic will be reassembled, decrypted, and forwarded to the destination. Non GET VPN transit IPsec traffic will be reassembled but not decrypted (because the Cisco ASR 1000 router is not the IPsec tunnel end point) and then forwarded to the destination.

To enable IPsec reassembly of transit traffic, use the platform ipsec reassembly transit command in global configuration mode. To disable IPsec reassembly of transit traffic, use the no form of this command.

platform ipsec reassembly transit

[no] platform ipsec reassembly transit

IPSec SSO and ISSU Support Notes

The Cisco ASR 1000 Series Router supports stateful IPSec sessions on ESP switchover. During ESP switchover, all IPSec sessions will stay up and no user intervention is needed to maintain IPSec sessions.

For an ESP reload (no standby ESP), the SA sequence number restarts from 0. The peer router drops packets that do not have the expected sequence number. User may need to explicitly reestablish IPSec sessions to work around this issue for systems that have a single ESP after an ESP reload. User may experience traffic disruption over the IPSec sessions in such cases for the duration of the reload.

The Cisco ASR 1000 Series Router currently does not support Stateful Switchover (SSO) IPSec sessions on Route Processors (RPs). The IPSec sessions will go down on initiation of the switchover, but will come back up when the new RP becomes active. No user intervention is needed. User will experience traffic disruption over the IPSec sessions for the duration of the switchover, until the sessions are back up.

The Cisco ASR 1000 Series Router currently does not support stateful ISSU for IPSec sessions. Before performing an ISSU, users must explicitly terminate all existing IPSec sessions or tunnels prior to the operation and reestablish them post ISSU. Specifically, users must ensure that there are no half-open or established IPSec tunnels present before performing ISSU. To do this, we recommend user do a interface shutdown in the case of interfaces that may initiate a tunnel setup, such as a routing protocol initiating a tunnel setup, or interfaces that have keepalive enabled or where there is an auto trigger for an IPSec session. Traffic disruption over the IPSec sessions during ISSU is obvious in this case.

Summarizing Caveats

ESP—Switchover (with standby ESP):Stateful:IPSec sessions should be up. No user intervention needed.

ESP—Reload (no standby ESP):Stateless:IPSec sessions will go down and come back. Usually, no user intervention is needed. However, users may have to explicitly re-establish an IPsec session if antireplay is configured (sequence number checking).

RP—Switchover (with standby RP):Stateless:IPSec sessions will go down on RP switchover and the session should re-establish automatically when the new RP gains an active role. No user intervention is needed.

ISSU (irrespective of chassis type):Stateless:Users must explicitly terminate all the IPSec sessions by shutting the interfaces, perform ISSU, and then re-establish tunnels by enabling the interfaces. No other intervention is needed.

Miscellaneous IPSec Support Notes

This section contains miscellaneous important notes about IPSec support on the Cisco ASR 1000 Series Router:

In the context of an IPSec DVTI connection, the Cisco ASR 1000 Router does not support dynamic download ACL rule (per-user attribute) from the AAA server.

For example, the following configurations are not supported:

cisco-avpair += "ip:inacl#1=permit ip any 2.2.2.0 0.0.0.255"
cisco-avpair += "ip:outacl#1=permit ip 2.2.2.0 0.0.0.255 any"
 
   

The Cisco ASR 1000 Router does not support the command of "if-state nhrp" in configuring the tunnel.

The Cisco ASR 1000 Router Dead Peer Detection behavior is different than the pre-defined behavior (i.e. when there is no traffic to be sent, no DPD is sent, while if any traffic to be sent, DPD is sent). A Cisco ASR 1000 Router DPD is sent out regardless there is outbound traffic needs to be sent out.

The Cisco ASR 1000 Router does not support SA Path MTU on data path.

The Cisco ASR 1000 Router does not support double ACL in dynamic crypto map.

VRF without crypto map configured on a physical interface causes dual esp reload on a Cisco ASR 1000 Router.

The command: show crypto ipsec sa identity does not log send and receive error counts.

The commands: clear crypto and show crypto on Standby RP are inconsistent with Active RP. At present most of other features disable 'clear commands' from Standby RP, but IPSec still allows to clear sa, session etc. from the standby.

The Cisco ASR 1000 Router does not support Cisco AAA av-pair "cisco-avpair += ip:sub-policy-In=policy1".

CLI allows both ikev1 and ikev2 profile configured under the same crypto map, even though it is not supported internally on the ASR 1000 Router.

For a Cisco ASR 1000 Router, the tunnel protection should be removed first before changing any configuration for tunnel protection.

The security association (SA) maximum transmission unit (MTU) calculation is based on the interface MTU instead of the IP MTU.

The Cisco ASR 1000 Series Router currently supports a maximum anti-replay window value of 512. If you attempt to configure a value larger than 512, the Cisco ASR 1000 Series Router defaults back to 512 internally (although the display still shows your user-configured value).

The Cisco ASR 1000 Series Router does not currently support nested SA transformation such as:

crypto ipsec transform-set transform-1 ah-sha-hmac esp-3des esp-md5-hmac 
crypto ipsec transform-set transform-1 ah-md5-hmac esp-3des esp-md5-hmac 
 
   

The Cisco ASR 1000 Series Router does not currently support Cisco IOS Certificate Authority (CA) server features.

The Cisco ASR 1000 Series Router does not currently support COMP-LZS configuration.

On Cisco ASR 1000 Series Routers, when configuring GRE over IPSec, it is recommended that you use only the tunnel protection mode on the tunnel interface. Using crypto maps on both the tunnel interface and the physical interface to achieve GRE over IPSec is not the supported method of configuration.

When using dynamic VTI-based IPSec on a Cisco ASR 1000 Router, if there are multiple remote IPSec endpoints behind the same NAT device, only one of the endpoints has connectivity. In other words, multiple endpoints cannot have connectivity at the same time.

NAT and Firewall ALG Support on the Cisco ASR 1000 Series Routers

NAT and Firewall ALG Support on Cisco ASR 1000 Series Routers matrix summarizes Network Address Translation (NAT) and Firewall Application Layer Gateway (ALG) feature support on Cisco ASR 1000 Series Routers in Cisco IOS XE  Release 2.1.0 and later releases.

Propagating Traffic Priorities to Higher Levels

Priority propagation ensures that the appropriate priority is maintained for particular traffic classes throughout all levels of the queueing and scheduling hierarchy. When propagating oversubscribed priority traffic to higher levels in the hierarchy, the rate ratios for these traffic classes are relative to the shaping rates for the immediate parent classes of the priority queues(s). This is demonstrated in the example below.

> policy-map Parent
>  class class-default
>   shape average 100000000
>   service-policy Child
> 
> policy-map Child
>  class class1
>   shape average 50000000
>   service-policy Grand-child1
>  class class2
>   shape average 40000000
>   service-policy Grand-child2
>  class class3
>   shape average 30000000
>   service-policy Grand-child3
> 
> policy-map Grand-child1
>  class classA
>   priority 
> policy-map Grand-child2
>  class classB
>   priority 
> policy-map Grand-child3
>  class classC
>   priority 
 
   

In the above example, the "Parent" policy-map is oversubscribed, but when traffic is congested, the rates for the priority traffic in class1, class2, and class3 are only allowed as shown below due to priority propagation.

> class1: 41.7Mbps (=100Mbps/120Mbps * 50Mbps)
> class2: 33.3Mbps (=100Mbps/120Mbps * 40Mbps)
> class3: 25.0Mbps (=100Mbps/120Mbps * 30Mbps)

Important Notes About Cisco IOS XE Release 3.4.1S

This section provides important notes about Cisco IOS XE Release 3.4.1S.

BGP Scan Time Range

The bgp scan-time command has a scanner-interval range of 5-60 seconds. The bgp scan-time command can be configured, even if BGP Next Hop Tracking (NHT) is configured (by the bgp nexthop command).

Important Notes About Cisco IOS XE Release 3.3.1S

This section provides important notes about Cisco IOS XE Release 3.3.1S.

Broadband Encapsulation Autosense Support Notes

This section contains important notes about the support for broadband encapsulation autosense with RBE configuration in Cisco IOS XE Release 3.3.1S:

The broadband encapsulation autosense enhancement enables broadband autosense support for PPPoEoA, PPPoA, and RBE.

In the Cisco IOS XE releases prior to Release 3.3.1S, aal5autoppp encapsulation was not supported when an RBE was configured. As a result, the combination of aal5autoppp encapsulation with RBE was not supported in the Cisco IOS XE releases prior to Release 3.3.1S.

The broadband encapsulation enhancment in Cisco IOS XE Release 3.3.1S supports the combination 
of aal5autoppp encapsulation with RBE-related configurations. 

Important Notes About Cisco IOS XE Release 3.3.0S

This section provides important notes about Cisco IOS XE Release 3.3.0S and later releases.

High Availability on SBC

The following is the expected behavior of a session border controller (SBC) on which the High Availability feature is configured:

If switchover occurs while an H.323-H.323 T.38 fax transmission is in progress, the call does not fall back to the voice mode after the completion of the fax transmission. This is because the signaling state is not preserved in the event of a switchover.

IPsec Failover

IPSec failover is a feature that increases the total uptime (or availability) of your IPSec network. Traditionally, this is accomplished by employing a redundant (standby) router in addition to the original (active) router. If the active router becomes unavailable for any reason, the standby router takes over the processing of IKE and IPSec.

IPSec failover falls into two categories: stateless failover and stateful failover. The IPsec on the Cisco ASR 1000 Series Router supports only stateless failover. Stateless failover uses protocols such as the Hot Standby Router Protocol (HSRP) to provide primary to secondary cutover and also allows the active and standby VPN gateways to share a common virtual IP address.

Important Notes About Cisco IOS XE Release 3.2.1S

This section describes important notes about Cisco IOS XE Release 3.2.1S and later releases.

EzVPN Support on Cisco ASR 1000 Series Routers

On a ASR Cisco 1000 Router, when an EzVPN session is ended, the EzVPN server sends out a Stop Accounting message. This message does not contain the Acct-Input-Octets, Acct-Output-Octets, Acct-Input-Packets, and Acct-Output-Packets fields. It might cause a disruption of accounting performed on traffic.

Maximum IP MTU for Loopback Interfaces

For loopback interfaces, the maximum IP MTU is now 4000. This is to match the serial interface limits.

Important Notes About Cisco IOS XE Release 3.2.0S

This section describes important notes about Cisco IOS XE Release 3.2.0S and later releases.

Cisco ASR 1001-4XT3

Cisco ASR1001-4XT3 chassis functionality is similar to the SPA-4XT3/E3 with the exception of E3 circuitry in Cisco IOS XE 3.2.0S Release.

SIP Trunk Over TCP

SIP TCP trunk calls may not activate if more than one complete SIP messages were contained in one TCP segment in Cisco IOS XE 3.2.0S Release.

This symptom occurs upon SIP trunk over TCP scenario. SIP ALG currently processes only one complete SIP message in one TCP segment (one complete or one complete plus one incomplete), refer to CSCti56370.

TCP Failover in Hardware High-Availability Mode

TCP failover is not supported in Hardware High-Availability mode. If the active node fails in Hardware High Availability mode and if the network is restored, it may take 5 to 10 minutes for the standby node to become the active node. This is because of the reboot and the peer negotiation delay. If the network is not restored, only the switched over active peer is available. Failover is not possible in this state.

Extended ACL as a WCCP Redirect ACL

The Cisco ASR 1000 Series Router supports the use of an extended ACL as a WCCP redirect ACL. However, the option to specify a port range is not supported.

Important Notes About Cisco IOS XE Release 3.1.1S

This section describes important notes about Cisco IOS XE Release 3.1.1S and later releases.

SIP-40G:SPA-4XT-SERIAL

Cisco SPA-4XT-SERIAL was not supported in 3.1.0S when plugged into an ASR1000 with SIP-40. This SPA is supported in Release 3.1.1S on SIP-40 linecard.

Important Notes About Cisco IOS XE Release 2.6.0

This section describes important notes about Cisco IOS XE Release 2.6.0 and later releases.

Per-User Attribute on PPP Virtual Access

In Cisco IOS XE Release 2.6.0 multiple instances of the per-user attribute `Cisco-Avpair=lcp:interface-config=<cmd>' is not supported.

For example:

Cisco-AVPair = lcp:interface-config=ip vrf forwarding vpngreen

Cisco-AVPair= lcp:interface-config=ip unnumbered loopback2

Should be configured like this in Cisco IOS XE Release 2.6.0:

Cisco-AVPair = lcp:interface-config=ip vrf forwarding vpngreen \nip unnumbered loopback2

"Multiple instances will be supported in Cisco IOS XE Release 2.6.1"

Legacy QoS Command Deprecation: Hidden Commands

To streamline Cisco IOS QoS (quality of service), certain commands are being hidden. Although these commands are available in Cisco IOS XE Release 2.6, the CLI interactive help does not display them. If

you attempt to view a command by entering a question mark at the command line, the command does not appear. However, if you know the command syntax, you can enter it. The system will accept the command and return a message explaining that it will soon be removed. These commands will be completely removed in a future release, which means that you will need to use the appropriate replacement commands.

For more information, see the following document:

http://www.cisco.com/en/US/docs/ios/ios_xe/qos/configuration/guide/legacy_qos_cli_deprecation_xe.html

VRF-Aware NAT

ASRNAT will not handle fragmented packets unless VFR is configured on all NAT interfaces. VFR will automatically be configured when NAT is configured, but users must "not" manually unconfigure VFR on NAT interfaces as NAT cannot process the fragmented packets and out-of-order fragments correctly.

Important Notes About Cisco IOS XE Release 2.5.0

This section describes important notes about Cisco IOS XE Release 2.5.0 and later releases.

Embedded Packet Capture

The Embedded Packet Capture (EPC) feature is not functional and not supported for the Cisco ASR 1000 Series Routers.

QoS: Policing Support for GRE Tunnels

When queuing feature on the GRE tunnel interface is not supported with crypto configured on the physical interface.

QoS: Support for GRE/sVTI Tunnel

With IOS XE 2.5.0, the Cisco ASR 1000 Router Series supports Quality-of Service (QoS) applied to

A GRE or sVTI tunnel with policing and marking only for INGRESS traffic

A GRE or sVTI tunnel with 2-level hierarchy allowing queuing on the second level for EGRESS traffic

When there are multiple egress physical interfaces for a tunnel, and the tunnel target physical interface changes as a result of tunnel target destination route change, either manually by user configuration or by routing protocol, IOS will not prevent the tunnel traffic from moving to an alternate egress physical interface. However, in IOS XE 2.5.0, QoS tunnel move feature is not supported. When tunnel traffic moved to an alternate egress physical interface, tunnel QoS policy may enter a suspended state. At this point, the tunnel QoS policy will have to be removed and reapplied to the tunnel interface for it to take effect. In addition, queuing features on the GRE tunnel interface are not supported when IPSec is configured on the physical interface.

VRF-Aware NAT

Integrating NAT with MPLS VPNs

This section provides information about integrating NAT with MPLS VPNs.

Prerequisites for Integrating NAT with MPLS VPNs

Before performing the tasks in this module, you should be familiar with the concepts related to configuring NAT for IP address conservation. All access lists required for use with the tasks in this module should be configured prior to beginning the configuration task. For information about how to configure an access list, see IP Access List Sequence Numbering at the following location:

http://www.cisco.com/en/US/docs/ios/12_2s/feature/guide/fsaclseq.html


Note If you specify an access list to use with a NAT command, NAT does not support the commonly used permit ip any command in the access list.


Restrictions for Integrating NAT with MPLS VPNs

The following functionality is not supported for VRF-Aware NAT:

VPN to VPN translations. In other words, VRF cannot be applied on the NAT outside interface.

Translation of multicast packets

Translations with inside destinations

Reversible route maps

MIBs

MPLS traffic engineering

Configuring inside dynamic translations defined with outside interface mappings is not supported.

Configuring inside static translations with interface mappings is not supported. The following commands, which do not include VRF, are not supported:

ip nat inside source static esp local-ip interface type number

ip nat inside source static local-ip global-ip route-map name

ip nat inside source static local-ip interface type number

ip nat inside source static tcp local-ip local-port interface type number global-port

ip nat inside source static udp local-ip local-port interface type number global-port

Dependency of NAT on VFR

ASRNAT will not handle fragmented packets unless VFR is configured on all NAT interfaces. VFR will automatically be configured when NAT is configured, but users must "not" manually unconfigure VFR on NAT interfaces as NAT cannot process the fragmented packets and out-of-order fragments correctly.

VFR will automatically be configured when NAT is configured, but users must "not" manually unconfigure VFR on NAT interfaces as NAT cannot process the fragmented packets and out-of-order fragments correctly.

Important Notes About Cisco IOS XE Release 2.1.1

This section describes important notes about Cisco IOS XE Release 2.1.1 and later releases.

Startup Configuration File Backup

As a matter of routine maintenance on any Cisco router, users should backup the startup configuration file by copying the startup configuration file from NVRAM onto one of the router's other file systems and, additionally, onto a network server. Backing up the startup configuration file provides an easy method of recovering the startup configuration file in the event the startup configuration file in NVRAM becomes unusable for any reason.

For users using any Cisco ASR 1000 Series Router with a single RP, including any Cisco ASR 1002 or Cisco ASR 1004 Router, backing up the startup configuration file onto another router file system is especially important due to CSCsq70140, which is documented in the Caveats section of these release notes. The workaround for users who run into this caveat is to replace the startup configuration file in NVRAM with a backup copy of the startup configuration file on the router; therefore, customers who have backed up their startup configuration files onto the router will be ready to resolve these caveats if they occur on their Cisco ASR 1000 Series Routers using a single RP.
