New Features and Functionality

No new software features are included in Release 9.0.2.

Changes to the Release Notes

This section documents supplemental information that has been added to the Release Notes for Cisco ONS 15454 Release 9.0 since the production of the Cisco ONS 15454 System Software CD for Release 9.0.

Caveats

Review the notes listed below before deploying the Cisco ONS 15454. Caveats with tracking numbers are known system limitations that are scheduled to be addressed in a subsequent release. Caveats without tracking numbers are provided to point out procedural or situational considerations when deploying the product.

Data I/O Cards

This section documents caveats for Data I/O Cards in Release 9.0.2.

CSCsz79019 —GE_XP cards reboot when changing from UNI to NNI mode

GE_XP cards reboot when changing from UNI to NNI mode and when configuring QinQ via TL1. In addition, any traffic flowing through the card stops and the card gives an equipment failure alarm.

Change the UNI mode of the port via CTC to NNI and the QinQ mode to Selective.

This issue will be resolved in a future release.

CSCtd48197—Unable to set Egress bandwidth limiting in GE_XPE cards

Traffic flow is observed even when Egress bandwidth limit is set in GE_XPE cards. This issue will be resolved in a future release.

CSCtd50130—Loop is created when FAPS protection is disabled in fail state and renabled

If FAPS protection is disabled in a fail state (one of the trunk is disabled or any there are other failures) and again renabled, a loop is formed. This condition occurs if the card is selected as a Master or Slave. To fix the issue, soft reset the card.

This issue will be resolved in a future release.

Resolved Caveats for Release 9.0.2

This section documents caveats resolved in Release 9.0.2.

CTC

This section documents resolved caveats for CTC in Release 9.0.2.

CSCtc03224 —Incorrect display of NE role in the CTM

The NE (network element) role is displayed incorrectly or the roles flap in Cisco Transport Manager (CTM) in out of memory.

This issue has been resolved.

Data I/O Cards

This section documents resolved caveats for Data I/O Cards in Release 9.0.2.

CSCtc83429—Loop is created when untagged PIM packets are sent to a GE_XP card

A loop is created in the ring when untagged Protocol Independent Multicast (PIM) packets are sent to a GE_XP card that is being reset.

This issue has been resolved.

CSCtd57898—Upgrading R8.0 to R9.02 stops traffic on a VLAN range

When software is upgraded from R8.0 to R9.02,with VLAN-range configured on UNI ports, and FAPS is configured in a mix of GE_XP and 10GE_XP ring, traffic stops.

This issue has been resolved.

CSCsz91519—PIM packets with invalid tags are forwarded to the CPU on both NNI and UNI ports

Untagged packets on NNI ports are forwarded to CPU. Unknown VLAN tagged packets on UNI ports are also forwarded to the CPU. Ideally, the packets should be dropped in both the cases.

If IGMP is not enabled on an SVLAN, ports are not added to the PIM FP.

If static router port is enabled on the card, the PIM FP entry is removed and the PIM packets will not be forwarded to the CPU. However, if static router port is disabled the PIM FP entry is recreated.

If a NNI port is changed to an UNI port, the port will be immediately removed from the PIM FP. After this any PIM packets coming through this port will not be forwarded to the CPU.

If a UNI port is changed to NNI port and an IGMP enabled SVLAN is enabled on this port, it is immediately added to the PIM FP entry. Control packets (PIM packets) will be forwarded to CPU.

This issue has been resolved.

CSCtc44604—First 32 DCC Area IDs are restored after the upgrade

Only the first 32 data communications channel (DCC) area IDs are restored after an upgrade from an older software release to R9.0.1.

This issue has been resolved.

CSCtb33916 —After an upgrade, traffic is discarded on a newly created VLAN

The traffic does not flow in a newly created VLAN under the following conditions:

Software upgraded from R8.5 to R9.0 or R9.0.1

After a soft reset of the card.

This issue has been resolved.

CSCtc61031—Untagged PIM Packets on NNI port causes a Loop

A loop is created when untagged Protocol Independent Multicast (PIM) packets are sent on the Network-to-Network Interfaces (NNI) ports.

This issue has been resolved.

CSCsy84669—NNI ports forward the IGMP packets with SVLAN that are not configured

All the Network-to-Network Interfaces (NNI) ports receive Internet Group Management Protocol (IGMP) control packets, even though they are not part of IGMP VLAN. As a result, even if an NNI port is not configured for a VLAN on which the IGMP is enabled, it continues to receive IGMP control packets.

This issue has been resolved.

CSCtc66943—Link does not come up when autonegotiation is enabled

The link fails to come up when the CE-1000-4 card and the HP ProCurve Switch are connected, and autonegotiation is enabled on both ends of the circuit.

This issue has been resolved.

CSCsw69274—CTM hangs when SVLAN circuit discovery is launched

SVLAN circuit discovery launched from the Cisco Transport Manager (CTM) hangs and circuits are not displayed.

This issue has been resolved.

CSCtc98846—Loop is created even when the IGMP snooping is disabled

A loop is created when untagged Protocol Independent Multicast (PIM) packets are sent on the Network-to-Network Interfaces (NNI) ports.

This issue has been resolved.

CSCsu67371—Traffic leak to/from MVR SVLAN on all NNI ports

When multicast VLAN registration (MVR) is configured, all User to Network interface (UNI) and Network-to-Network (NNI) ports belong to MVR SVLAN even though MVR SVLAN is not enabled on NNI ports.

This issue has been resolved.

CSCta85508 —Untagged BPDU on NNI Trunk port creates a loop

Untagged Bridge Protocol Data Unit (BPDU) packets received on the Network-to-Network (NNI) port create a loop in the trunk ring, even though the protection is configured correctly.

This issue has been resolved.

CSCsz13424—Untagged packets received on the NNI port creates a loop

Untagged packets received on the Network-to-Network Interfaces (NNI) port create a loop in the trunk ring.

This issue has been resolved.

CSCtb01858—Traffic does not come up on preprovisioned port

The traffic does not come up when the port is enabled (in service, IS) after a cold boot or after the pluggable port module (PPM) is plugged in.

This issue has been resolved.


Note This issue was found only in GE_XPE cards.
