System Requirements

Cisco IOS Release 12.3(7)XI9 requires that you have the performance routing engine (PRE), Part Number ESR-PRE2 installed in the Cisco 10000 series router chassis. To verify which PRE is installed in the router, use the show version command.

Route Processor Redundancy Mode

The Cisco 10000 series router supports route processor redundancy (RPR) mode or RPR+ mode to provide fault resistance and to ensure high availability. In RPR mode, one performance routing engine (PRE) is active and operational while the second PRE is in standby mode waiting for the active PRE to fail so that it can take over and maintain the operation of the router. In RPR+ mode, the standby PRE is fully initialized and configured, which shortens the time needed to switch over to the standby PRE.

When you are upgrading or downgrading the Cisco IOS software, the RPR mode used on the Cisco 10000 series router depends upon the Cisco IOS software currently running on the Cisco 10000 series router and the Cisco IOS software to which you want to upgrade or downgrade.

Table 1 lists the RPR modes used when upgrading or downgrading Cisco IOS software. For example, when upgrading to Cisco IOS Release 12.3(7)XI9 from Release 12.2(16)BX, the router uses RPR mode instead of RPR+ mode. When downgrading to Cisco IOS Release 12.2(16)BX from Cisco IOS Release 12.3(7)XI9, the router uses RPR mode.

Complete ID

Not supported.

Controlling the Rate of Logging Messages

It is important that you limit the rate that system messages are logged by the Cisco 10000 series router. This helps to avoid a situation in which the router becomes unstable and the CPU is overloaded. To control the output of messages from the system, use the logging rate-limit command.

We recommend that you configure the logging rate-limit command as follows. This limits the rate of all messages to the console to 10 per second, except for messages with critical priority (level 3) or greater.

Router(config)# logging rate-limit console all 10 except critical

For more information, refer to the logging rate-limit command in the Cisco IOS Configuration Fundamentals and Network Management Command Reference, Release 12.3.

DBS Extensions

You must configure the AV pairs for both the high and low watermarks. Configuring only one of the AV pairs results in the watermark not being configured.

The Cisco 10000 series router only supports RADIUS Pull for automatically provisioned VCs and virtual path (VP) tunnels.

DNS Fault Tolerance

Not supported.

DNS Redirection

Not supported.

Frame Relay

The following limitations apply to the Cisco 10000 series router implementation of Frame Relay:

The ip rtp reserve command is not supported.

Only one priority queue per VC is allowed.

Full VAIs

Full virtual access interfaces (VAIs) are not recommended for scaling because they consume significant memory and the router cannot scale to high session counts as advertised. However, there are times when full VAIs cannot be prevented. There are some known issues with regards to counters for full VAIs and if operation is considered incorrect, a case should be logged with the Technical Assistance Center (TAC).

Before opening a TAC case, refer to the CSCsc83107 caveat to make sure the issue is not the same.

Half-Duplex Virtual Routing and Forwarding over Route Bridge Encapsulation

Half-duplex virtual routing and forwarding (HDVRF) over route bridge encapsulation (RBE) is not supported.

IEEE 802.1Q-in-Q VLAN Tag Termination

PPPoEoQ-in-Q supports a maximum of 32,000 sessions per interface.

IP over Q-in-Q (IPoQ-in-Q) supports a maximum of 16,000 IPoQ-in-Q subinterfaces per interface.

IPoQ-in-Q supports a maximum of 448 outer VLAN IDs.

Multiprotocol Label Switching (MPLS) is not supported on PPPoEoQ-in-Q and IPoQ-in-Q subinterfaces.

Layer 2 Ethernet over MPLS (EoMPLS) tunneling using the xconnect command on PPPoEoQ-in-Q and IPoQ-in-Q subinterfaces is not supported.

Layer 2 Tunnel Protocol Dialout

Layer 2 Tunnel Protocol (L2TP) dialout is not supported. SSG attempts to set up the tunnel, but does not set up the VRF for tunnel services. Therefore, traffic is not forwarded to the tunnel.

PDSN Interworking

Not supported.

Per Session Queuing and Shaping for PPPoE VLAN Using RADIUS

The router does not support per session queuing and shaping for Layer 2 Access Concentrator (LAC) or L2TP Network Server (LNS) sessions. For LNS sessions, the router executes a session-level policy and any policies on the inbound and outbound interface.

The QoS-related statistics available using the show policy interface command are not available using RADIUS.

The router does not support using a virtual template interface to apply a service policy to a session.

You can only apply per session queuing and shaping policies as output service policies. The router supports input service policies on sessions for other existing features, but not for per session queuing and shaping for PPPoE over VLAN using RADIUS.

During periods of congestion, the router does not provide specific scheduling between the various PPPoE sessions. If the entire port becomes congested, the scheduling that results has the following effects:

The amount of bandwidth that each session receives of the entire port's capacity is not typically proportionally fair share.

The contribution of each class queue to the session's total bandwidth might not degrade proportionally.

Including the ATM overhead in the shaping rate is not a user-configurable option. Whenever you apply a queuing service policy to a session, the router includes the ATM overhead in the queue and shape rates.

The shaping rates on the router might be lower than the actual rate of the ATM link. This is because a networking device between the router and the subscriber's ATM link removes portions of the Ethernet frame (for example, a device removes the VLAN tags). The exact amount depends on the distribution of transmitted packet sizes.


Note The ATM overhead calculation includes the size of the Ethernet frame (the packet segment), including all VLAN tags.


The router does not support the configuration of the policy map using RADIUS. You must use the modular QoS (MQC) command line interface (CLI) to configure the policy map on the router.

PRE Network Management Ethernet Port

Ensure that the Fast Ethernet, Network Management Ethernet (NME) port on the PRE is configured for auto-negotiation mode, which is the system default. Duplex mode can cause problems, such as flapping. If the port is experiencing such problems and has been configured for duplex mode, use the no half-duplex or no full-duplex command to disable duplex mode.

The interface should only be used for system management. Do not use this interface for operations such as Telnet and SNMP. The interface used for system management cannot terminate PPPoE or L2TP sessions.

Service Selection Gateway PTA MD

The Service Selection Gateway (SSG) PTA-MD is a form of Layer 2 switching. In the SSG implementation the host's PPP session is terminated by the access provider, but it may be logically associated with a particular service. Packets to and from the host are not routed normally but switched to and from the network to which the host is associated. This functionality is provided by designating the network-side interfaces as being associated with a service. The control plane then binds a host with a particular service based on service selection. This feature has evolved such that VRFs are used to ensure a host's packets are forwarded to and from the interface associated with the service to which they are bound.

If a network-side interface is designated as being associated with a service it is then bound to a VRF. Likewise, if a host subscribes to that same service it is also bound to that same VRF.

Packets to and from the host and to and from the network-side interface are routed within the same VRF. Therefore, packets to and from the host always traverse the service they have subscribed to first, regardless of the ultimate destination or original source.

A host cannot be connected to multiple services that are in different VRFs simultaneously.

Radius Proxy Enhancements for CHAP

Not supported.

Range Command for Bind Statements

To configure a non-PPP user as an SSG user, bind the interface as downlink or uplink by using the ssg direction command in subinterface configuration mode. The command syntax is:

ssg direction {uplink | downlink}

For example:

Router(config)# interface atm 5/0/1.15

Router(config-subif)# ssg direction downlink

Router(config-subif)# interface atm 5/0/1.16

Router(config-subif)# ssg direction uplink


Note Note The ssg direction command also applies to range commands.


When you bind an interface to a direction, traffic is routed through SSG features and processing. If you do not bind an interface to a direction, the interface is a transparent passthrough interface and traffic is routed through normal Cisco IOS features processing.

Redundant Uplinks to the Same Service

Not supported.

Scalability

If you configure on-demand PVCs (individual and within a range) and PPP sessions, route processor (RP) CPU utilization can be extremely high when bringing up and tearing down sessions and PVCs. This is only a concern when the configuration contains approximately 30,000 PPP sessions, and additional services such as Dynamic Bandwidth Selection (DBS), ACLs, and service policies are enabled.


Note Do not configure more than 1500 VCs under a multipoint interface. Exceeding this recommended limit can cause very high CPU utilization.


To reduce the RP CPU usage for PPPoA sessions, reduce the number of configured PVCs in a single subinterface. To reduce the RP CPU usage for PPPoEoA sessions, use the call admission control call admission limit command.

Service level ACLs

Service ACLs cannot be applied to a connection. If this occurs, the connection remains active, but the ACLs have no effect.

SSG Auto Logoff

Use only one method of SSG auto logoff at a time: ARP ping or ICMP ping. ARP ping works only on hosts that have a MAC address.

SSG EAP Transparency

Not supported.

SSG GRE

You cannot configure GRE tunneling type interface as an SSG uplink interface.

SSG IOS NAT

Network address translation (NAT) functionality is not supported. This means that the router does not support concurrent access to multiple services for which the services, not the access provider, must assign the user's IP address.

SSG L2TP

Neither SSG acting as a PPP client proxy with LAC nor PPP session in L2TP getting SSG processing is supported.

SSG Prepaid

The SSG Prepaid feature has the following restrictions:

· Quotas are measured in seconds. You cannot change the unit of measure.

· The Cisco 10000 series router supports only time-based SSG Prepaid for a service connection.

Support for Classifying Hosts Based on IP Address

Not supported.

Suppression of Unused Accounting Records

Not supported.

Testing Performance of High-Speed Interfaces

Cisco IOS software running on the Cisco 10000 series router has multiple queues for all classes of traffic over high-speed interfaces. The software selects a queue based on the source and destination address for the packet. This ensures that a traffic flow always uses the same queue and the packets are transmitted in proper order.

When the Cisco 10000 series router is installed in a real network, the high-speed interfaces work efficiently to spread traffic flow equally over the queues. However, using single traffic streams in a laboratory environment may result in less-than-expected performance.

Therefore, to ensure accurate test results, you should test the throughput of the Gigabit Ethernet, Packet over SONET (POS), or ATM uplink with multiple source or destination addresses.


Note To determine if traffic is being properly distributed, use the show hardware pxf cpu queue command.


Unique Session ID

Not supported.

VRF-Aware VPDN Tunnels

The Virtual Routing and Forwarding (VRF)-Aware VPDN Tunnels feature can only be used with Layer 2 Tunnel Protocol (L2TP) on the L2TP Access Concentrator (LAC). The reason is that the Cisco 10000 series router can only initiate tunnels in a VRF; it cannot terminate tunnels that arrive in a VRF. Therefore, this feature does not apply to the Cisco 10000 series router when the router is acting as the L2TP Network Server (LNS) because the Cisco 10000 series router, as the LNS, cannot terminate tunnels that arrive in a VRF.

For the multihop configuration, the ingress tunnel also needs to arrive in the global routing table, but the tunnel can be switched out into a VRF towards the final LNS destination.

Important Notes

This section provides important information about the following topics:

Configuring the aaa new-model Command

Enhancing Scalability of Per-User Configurations

Inserting a New Line Card

Provisioning for Scaling

Deferrals

Configuring the aaa new-model Command

The aaa new-model command is disabled by default on the Cisco 10000 series router. In previous releases, the default configuration did not appear in the running configuration file. However, in Cisco IOS Release 12.3(7)XI1 or later releases, the running configuration file now includes the no aaa new-model command. This is an intentional change in behavior for this command and is the first step in a three-step process to change the default configuration to aaa new-model.


Note This change in behavior differs from Cisco IOS software, which typically does not include default configurations in the running configuration file.


For example, when you enter the show running-config command, no aaa new-model appears in the configuration if either of the following conditions previously occurred:

You did not configure the aaa new-model command on the router and instead accepted the default configuration of the file: no aaa new-model.

You entered the no aaa new-model command to remove the previously configured aaa new-model command.

Enhancing Scalability of Per-User Configurations

To enhance scalability of per-user configurations without changing the router configuration, use the ip:vrf-id VSA and ip:ip-unnumbered RADIUS attributes. These per-user vendor specific attributes (VSAs) are used to map sessions to VRFs and IP unnumbered interfaces. The VSAs apply to virtual access subinterfaces and are processed during PPP authorization.

In releases earlier than Cisco IOS Release 12.2(16)BX1, the lcp:interface-config RADIUS attribute is used to map sessions to VRFs. This per-user VSA applies to any type of interface configuration, including virtual access interfaces. Valid values of this VSA are essentially any valid Cisco IOS interface command; however, not all Cisco IOS commands are supported on virtual access subinterfaces. To accommodate the requirements of the lcp:interface-config VSA, the per-user authorization process forces the Cisco 10000 series router to create full virtual access interfaces, which consume more memory and are less scalable.

In Cisco IOS Release 12.2(16)BX1 and later releases, the ip:vrf-id VSA is used to map sessions to VRFs. Any profile that uses the ip:vrf-id VSA must also use the ip:ip-unnumbered VSA to install IP configurations on the virtual access interface that is to be created. PPP that is used on a virtual access interface to be created requires the ip:ip-unnumbered VSA. An Internet Protocol Control Protocol (IPCP) session is not established if IP is not configured on the interface. You must configure either the ip address command or the ip unnumbered command on the interface so that these configurations are present on the virtual access interface that is to be created. However, specifying the ip address and ip unnumbered commands on a virtual template interface is not required because any pre-existing IP configurations are removed when the ip:ip-vrf VSA is installed on the virtual access interface. Therefore, any profile that uses the ip:vrf-id VSA must also use the ip:ip-unnumbered VSA to install IP configurations on the virtual access interface that is to be created.

These per-user VSAs can be applied to virtual access subinterfaces; therefore, the per-user authorization process does not require the creation of full virtual access interfaces, which improves scalability.

Setting VRF and IP Unnumbered Interface Configurations in User Profiles

Although the Cisco 10000 series router continues to support the lcp:interface-config VSA, the ip:vrf-id and ip:ip-unnumbered VSAs provide another way to set the VRF and IP unnumbered interface configurations in user profiles. The ip:vrf-id and ip:ip-unnumbered VSAs have the following syntax:

Cisco:Cisco-AVpair = "ip:vrf-id=vrf-name"
Cisco:Cisco-AVpair = "ip:ip-unnumbered=interface-name"

Specify only one ip:vrf-id and one ip:ip-unnumbered value in a user profile. However, if the profile configuration includes multiple values, the Cisco 10000 series router applies the value of the last VSA received, and creates a virtual access subinterface. If the profile includes the lcp:interface-config VSA, the router always applies the value of the lcp:interface-config VSA, and creates a full virtual access interface.

Whenever you specify a VRF in a user profile, but you do not configure the VRF on the Cisco 10000 series router, in Cisco IOS Release 12.2(15)BX, the router accepted the profile. However, in Cisco IOS Release 12.2(16)BX1 and later releases, the router rejects the profile.

Setting VRF and IP Unnumbered Interface Configuration in a Virtual Interface Template

You can specify one VSA value in the user profile on RADIUS and another value locally in the virtual template interface. The Cisco 10000 series router clones the template and then applies the values configured in the profiles it receives from RADIUS, resulting in the removal of any IP configurations when the router applies the profile values.

Redefining User Profiles to Use the ip:vrf-id and ip:ip-unnumbered VSAs

The requirement of a full virtual access interface when using the lcp:interface-config VSA in user profiles can result in scalability issues, such as increased memory consumption. This is especially true when the Cisco 10000 series router attempts to apply a large number of per-user profiles that include the lcp:interface-config VSA. Therefore, when updating your user profiles, we recommend that you redefine the lcp:interface-config VSA to the scalable ip:vrf-id and ip:ip-unnumbered VSAs.

Example 1 shows how to redefine the VRF named newyork using the ip:vrf-id VSA.

Example 1 Redefining VRF Configurations

Change:
Cisco:Cisco-Avpair = "lcp:interface-config=ip vrf forwarding newyork"

To:
Cisco:Cisco-Avpair = "ip:vrf-id=newyork"

Example 2 shows how to redefine the Loopback 0 interface using the ip:ip-unnumbered VSA.

Example 2 Redefining IP Unnumbered Interfaces

Change:
Cisco:Cisco-Avpair = "lcp:interface-config=ip unnumbered Loopback 0"

To:
Cisco:Cisco-Avpair = "ip:ip-unnumbered=Loopback 0"

Inserting a New Line Card

Unlike other Cisco routers, if you insert a new or different line card into a Cisco 10000 series router chassis slot that previously had a line card installed, the line card initially reports that it is administratively up.

Provisioning for Scaling

The following configuration parameters enhance scalability on the Cisco 10000 series router:

PPPoA Sessions with IP QoS Static Routes

AAA Authentication on the NME Port

Call Admission Control

To configure the Cisco 10000 series router for high scalability, be sure to configure the configuration parameters as described in the sections that follow.

For more information, refer to the Cisco 10000 Series Broadband Aggregation, Leased-Line, and MPLS Configuration Guide.

PPPoA Sessions with IP QoS Static Routes

To scale to 32,000 PPPoA sessions with IP QoS enabled, you must limit the number of IP QoS static routes to 4,000 unidirectional QoS static routes.

AAA Authentication on the NME Port

If you use AAA authentication on the network management (NME) port, set both the in and out interface hold queues to 4096; for example:

Router(config)# int fa 0/0/0
Router(config-if)# hold-queue 4096 in
Router(config-if)# hold-queue 4096 out

Call Admission Control

We recommend that you set the Call Admission Control (CAC) to a maximum of 95; for example:

Router(config)# call admission limit 95

Open Caveats—Cisco IOS Release 12.3(7)XI9

This section describes caveats that are open in Cisco IOS Release 12.3(7)XI9.

CSCdk65707

After you issue the no router bgp command, the following error message may occur:

%SYS-2-CHUNKSIBLINGS: Attempted to destroy chunk with siblings, chunk ... 

There is no observable consequence on the router behavior.

There are no known workarounds.

CSCdt94857

High impact commands or commands used in high scaling environments impact scaling by increasing CPU cycles, increasing boot time, and decreasing control plane run-time efficiency.

There are no known workarounds.

CSCdy19642

Performance counters under the VT1.5, T3, VT2 controllers for DS1/E1 are not updated/displayed correctly.

There is no known workaround.

CSCdy44066

When Single router-APS (SR-APS) is configured on 1-Port Channelized OC12/STM-4 line cards. If an APS switchover is executed, the controller state in the show aps command output shows as SignalFail.

There are no known workarounds.

CSCdy45049

When scaling over 3000 serial interfaces, line rate traffic may not be achieved. This problem occurs when thousands of serial interfaces (PPP or HDLC) are used on the port and line rate traffic is sent through all interfaces.

There are no known workarounds.

CSCdz40002

When you remove Automatic Protection System (APS) and then re-activate it, traffic convergence after an APS switchover takes longer than 2 seconds.

There are no known workarounds.

CSCea63115

When you enter the redundancy force-failover main-cpu privileged EXEC command on a router that is configured with two Performance Routing Engines (PREs), an automatic protection system (APS) switchover occurs on OC-12 Packet-over-SONET (POS) line cards, which is incorrect behavior.

This problem occurs when APS is configured on OC-12 POS line cards in two different Cisco 10000 series routers that are connected back-to-back and you enter the following sequence of commands:

1. Enter the aps force pos slot/subslot/port from working interface configuration command on both routers.

2. Enter the show aps EXEC command. The output displays the active channels for both routers.

3. Enter the redundancy force-failover main-cpu privileged EXEC command on one of the routers, causing an APS switchover to occur on this router.

There are no known workarounds. However, when problem occurs, there is no loss of data.

CSCea63638

When Automatic Protection Switching (APS) is enabled, if you issue the hw-module reset command on the primary APS slot, no change is observed because the router does not switch to the secondary APS slot. This problem occurs when the hw-module reset command is issued.

The router can generate wrong or misleading sub-pool or global pool flooding messages when up or down thresholds for MPLS TE resource availability (bandwidth) are crossed. The configured thresholds for MPLS TE resource availability are crossed when defining bandwidth on the MPLS tunnel interface reserved on the physical interface/subinterface.

There are no known workarounds.

CSCec37207

On Cisco 10000 series routers running in PPP Termination and Aggregation mode, PPPoEoA sessions using bandwidth queues drop packets if a priority queue is also configured in the policy map. When there is traffic sent to priority queue, all other queues can drop packets below line rate if the traffic consists of small packets.

There are no known workarounds.

CSCec42315

When scaling to 12,000 Frame Relay DLCI interfaces, line rate traffic may not be achieved. This problem occurs when thousands of Frame Relay DLCIs are used on the port and line rate traffic is sent through all interfaces.

There are no known workarounds.

CSCec42451

The RIP routing protocol does not function properly over VLAN interfaces with IP unnumbered.

There are no known workarounds.

CSCec43937

ATM VP tunnel of 10Mb does not shape the traffic to the exact speed. There are violated cells on a connected ATM switch witch is policing the traffic.

Workaround: Lowering configured speed to 9999Kbps will ensure the tunnel speed.

CSCec48111

When sending 64 byte packets through 300 serial interfaces or more, line rate traffic may not be achieved. This problem occurs with 64 byte packets and a large number of interfaces.

There are no known workarounds.

There are no known workarounds.

CSCec80927

Call setup rate slower is for a particular configuration running on Cisco Release 12.3(6)TX image compared with Cisco Release 12.2(16)BX. If the mtu command is added to the virtual template for sessions, the command processing for the command takes significantly longer on Cisco Release 12.3(6)TX image as compared to Cisco Release 12.3(16)BX image.

Workaround: Remove the mtu command from the virtual template configuration.

CSCec85628

Outgoing traffic is above VP speed on an 8-port E3/D3 ATM line card. For this problem to occur, the total SCR value of all VBR-nrt VCs in a VP is above 80 percent of the VPs PCR value but still smaller than the total VP bandwidth (PCR). All the VCs should be overdriven by outgoing traffic.

There are no known workarounds.

CSCed03248

The CLI error "IP address is already defined as an interface" appears when the address is not used anywhere in the running configuration. The error occurs when the IP address was used by a serial interface and the interface was removed or unconfigured from the system.

Workaround: Use the no ip address command before removing a serial interface or use a different IP address (if possible).

CSCed17570

When using thousands of QoS queues with WRED configured in each queue, a traceback message can appear when you execute the microcode reload pxf command. The traceback message appears only when thousands of PXF queues are configured with random-detect enabled and the microcode reload pxf command is issued.

There are no known workarounds.

CSCed19311

When SSG ARP auto logoff feature is configured, certain users may not get logged off with the feature. User logging off using SESM or other means do not get affected.

Workaround: Configure ICMP ping logoff. Upgrade the code to the appropriate version.

CSCed20626

Exec process shows high CPU usage. This is caused by the dir all command, probably due to the attempted accesses to the secondary's PCMCIA slots.

There are no known workarounds. The router continues to function, but the console is unusable for a short while (10-30 seconds). Alternatively, use the command: dir device command only for known good device names.

CSCed54867

The input service policy does not match traffic as shown by the show policy-map interface command if there is no action associated for that class.

Workaround: Use the set or police command to define a policy action.

CSCed59185

When you apply the following example configuration to an output interface that is MPLS enabled, and send traffic from the CPU of the local router (ping other routers or hosts), the traffic is not policed by the policy map.

There are no known workarounds.

CSCed88782

The secondary port does not go to a working state during a signal degrade of the primary port using threshold SON ERR RAT 1e-6.

Workaround: Set the BIP threshold to 6; do not set the BIP threshold to 7.

CSCee02536

When configuring MPLS Layer 3 VPN, the PXF CEF/FIB table can hold up to 4,085 VRFs, although it is designed to hold 4,095 VRFs. If more than 4,085 VRFs are configured, 10 of those VRFs do not have an entry in the PXF CEF/FIB table, so traffic is not forwarded in those 10 VRFs.

There are no known workarounds.

CSCee03801

After you issue the clear ip bgp * command, a Cisco 10000 series router takes longer than 30 minutes to achieve convergence. eBGP sessions between PE and CE routers can go up and down multiple times, and the IGP routing protocol and LDP session can also go down and up again.

These problems occur under the following conditions:

4,095 VRFs are configured on a router

500 eBGP sessions are established between the router (PE) and CE routers

540 VRF routes per VRF in the 500 VRFs that are running eBGP between PE and CE routers

40 VRF routes per VRF in the rest of 3595 VRF

There are no known workarounds.

CSCee06089

When you apply a nested policy map using the bandwidth command in the child policy map to a POS OC-48 interface, PXF stops responding. This problem occurs when you allocate a small amount of bandwidth, and it only occurs on POS OC-48 interfaces.

Workaround: Allocate more bandwidth in the child policy map.

CSCee14864

Policing under a created queue, when attached at an MLP interface, accounts for only 2 bytes of the L2 header, so that policing is done at a higher rate than configured. This can cause a problem with priority queue CBWFQ functionality because the priority queue is configured with policing and its dequeue rate can be higher than intended.

Workaround: Do not configure policing under a created queue.

CSCee15674

When broadband PTA is configured with 114,000 queues, executing the microcode reload pxf command causes the ATM interface to display a big number of total output drops.

Workaround: Clear the counters.

CSCee20418

If the you change the amount of intercepted streams from 8 to 2 streams, the wrong amount of packets is intercepted. This occurs in Lawful Interception scenarios.

There are no known workarounds.

CSCee25615

This problem occurs when almost all the system resources (VCCI) are in use, after an OIR (slot reset) is issued, and in the OC-3 ATM line card. The reason it occurs in the OC-3 ATM line card is that it happens in an ATM line card with multiple ports. The symptom is that all the sessions in the same port stop passing traffic after OIR.

There are no known workarounds.

CSCee27630

A low-bandwidth class can be allocated more than its share of bandwidth at the expense of a high-bandwidth class. This problem occurs when the ratio of the configured bandwidths between two data classes is high (8:1 or higher) and when there is a priority class that receives traffic at (at least) 20 percent of the line rate. The traffic that is received by the data classes should be in the ratio of the configured bandwidths.

There are no known workarounds.

CSCee42746

When using multiple intercepts in Lawful Intercept mode, the MIB information is not completely cleared after intercepts are cleared from SNMP. This problem occurs when 35 or more streams are intercepted at the same time.

Workaround: Use Cisco IOS to delete the stream that was not deleted by SNMP.

CSCee44273

The show activity line card debug command shows the VC configuration from the perspective of the line card, but the autovc information is not shown. Also, after you delete or create an auto-VC, the counter is inaccurate.

With 40 or more intercept streams in Lawful Intercept mode, the LI engine fails to intercept correctly for UDP traffic. This problem occurs when 40 or more streams are intercepted at the same time.

There are no known workarounds.

CSCee45378

When intercepting streams at 5 Mbps or above in Lawful Intercept, the router CPU runs at about 78 percent of capacity. This problem occurs when 35 or more streams are intercepted at the same time.

There are no known workarounds.

CSCee50060

A Cisco 10000 series router with PPPoA VCs can, under abnormal conditions (such as a denial-of-service attack involving the sending of PPPoA data packets before the PPPoA session is up), experience heavy RP CPU use. The router with PPPoA VCs can forward PPPoA data packets for non-existent sessions.

This problem occurs when PPPoA data traffic is sent before the session reaches the PTA forwarded state. A normal PPPoA client does not send traffic before the session is up.

Workaround: Configure RPF on all ATM subinterfaces containing PPPoA sessions. The subinterface should have an RPF check in addition to using an RPF check in the virtual template. Configuring RPF on the subinterface forces all PPPoA data traffic to be dropped by the PXF before the session reaches the PTA forward state.

CSCee54408

When the 1-port channelized OC-12 line card uses SDH framing, the Path Trace Buffer is unstable for au3 mode. This problem occurs only with SDH framing; the Path Trace Buffer is stable with SONET framing.

There are no known workarounds.

CSCee54426

When the 1-port channelized OC-12 line card uses SDH framing, the J1 Path trace message is not received. This problem occurs only with SDH framing. The J1 Path Trace message is received when SONET framing is used.

There are no known workarounds.

CSCee54473

A loss of frame (LOF) alarm appears for a T1 when framing a Super Frame (SF) that is configured on both ends. This problem occurs when you configure T1 1 framing sf under AU-3 on a 1 port channelized OC-12 line card.

There are no known workarounds.

CSCee54971

The show policy-map interface command output does not display the Layer 2 frame size correctly. The actual output policing rate is 6.6 percent higher than the configured policing rate on gigabit Ethernet and POS OC-48 interfaces. The problem occurs when a police command is configured in a policy map, and the policy map is applied to a gigabit Ethernet or POS OC-48 interface as an output policy map.

Workaround: Use shaping instead of policing.

CSCee57219

The set cos command in an output policy map applied to a VLAN subinterface does not work if the outgoing traffic is MPLS packets (with MPLS labels). The problem occurs when outgoing traffic is MPLS packets.

There are no known workarounds.

Several PIM-related messages appear on the console when you remove, then re-apply a PIM configuration on the interface. This problem occurs when the removal and re-application of the configuration is done in a rapid manner.

There are no known workarounds.

CSCee61502

When configuring an MLPPP interface on a redundant system, the standby PRE adds the no ip route-cache cef interface command to multilink interfaces. This additional line causes the system to generate the following error when the new standby PRE is reloaded:

May 19 13:20:47.222 EDT: %REDUNDANCY-3-CONFIG_SYNC: Active and Standby bulk configuration 
out of sync

Workaround: Remove the no ip route-cache cef command from each multilink interface.

CSCee62159

Actual output and expected output for packet 1 does not match at nibble 8. This packet (packet_no 1, fragment_no : 1) is received in the wrong order. Other packets are also received in the wrong order. This problem occurs with the bootflash:c10k2-p11-mz.v123_7_xi_throttle.040510 image and the test is passed with Feb17 bba image.

During SNMP polling of the AAA Server MIB, the casDeadCount variable can cause high CPU usage on the router. This problem occurs with a large number of RBE interfaces (16,000) and bi-directional traffic running.

There are no known workarounds.

CSCee66314

In Lawful Intercept mode a traceback message might appear on the Intercept Access Point (IAP) router when the interface to the mediation router is shut down. This problem occurs when traffic is sent through the IAP and interception is turned on.

There are no known workarounds.

CSCee68404

If a PRE2 is in the early process of booting up, sometimes the SEND-BREAK character sequence can cause the router to reload instead of gracefully dropping back into ROMMON. This problem occurs when the PRE2 is in the early stages of the boot process and the SEND-BREAK is issued. If the PRE2 is already booted up, this is not an issue.

Workaround: To gracefully drop the PRE2 into ROMMON, if the configuration register is set to accept SEND-BREAK, wait until the PRE2 is fully booted.

CSCee68480

Priority queue latency can exceed the threshold of 2MTU+6msec. This problem occurs when more than 3 queues are configured on a interface, in addition to the priority queue.

On Cisco 10000 series routers running in PTA mode, a high CPU usage message appears if you execute the show vpdn session command when there are more than 30,000 sessions active. This problem occurs if the number of active sessions is large.

There are no known workarounds.

CSCef27221

When a router runs as a LAC and the rate at which PPPoA sessions are established is high, some sessions may not be established and the router can display an error message on the console. This problem occurs when 30,000 PPPoA sessions or more are established at high rate, such as when the ATM link to the DSLAM is restored after a link failure.

Workaround: Reduce the call admission rate for the PPPoA sessions.

CSCef27417

Output drops can be erroneously reported on the ATM OC-12 interface upon reloading the router and without any traffic sent or received on the interface. The output drops interface counter may also report invalid non-zero values with a light traffic load on the interface (PPPoX session establishment). This problem occurs when a high number of VCs is configured on the interface.

There are no known workarounds.

CSCef27539

PPPoEoA sessions experience priority traffic drops when using an absolute priority configuration. This problem occurs during traffic congestion; with 8,000 PPPoEoA sessions, priority traffic is dropped at the line card.

Workaround: Modifying the VC queue depth improves but does not alleviate the drops. Changing the configuration to a generic PQ configuration (without absolute priority) alleviates the drops.

CSCef30736

When using WRED with 10,000 queues on 4,000 ATM subinterfaces after counters have been cleared, the total output drops on the ATM interface increases without any traffic.

There are no known workarounds.

CSCef32601

When configuring 1,000 VRFs in a Cisco 10000 series router and injecting 660 static VRF routes per VRF, the route processor cannot hold the total of 660k VRF routes. The CEF is disabled automatically on the router and the router is not able to forward any traffic. When 660 static VRF routes are injected per VRF of 1000 VRFs, the router runs out of memory on the route processor.

If 620 VRF routes per VRF are injected into the router via 1000 eBGP sessions (one eBGP session per VRF), the router runs out of memory on the route processor.

There are no known workarounds.

When configuring a range of PVCs with more UBR VCs than the limit on the interface, the following error message appears:

PVC Range: Total number of VCs exceeds the interface limit.

Even if you configure oversubscription under that interface, you cannot configure more circuits than the interface limit.

There are no known workarounds.

CSCef50661

In some configurations the weight (used for round robin scheduling of the VC into a VP) may be more than the queue depth (the amount of cells the line card will hold for the VC). In this scenario the user may not see the proper weighting of the VCs in the VP. The queue depth places a ceiling on how many cells can be sent at one time.

Workaround: Both the weight and queue depth can be configured with CLI. Ensure that the queue depth is at least as high as the weight.

CSCef51082

The discard bit match is not done at the MPLS output interface when it is set at the VRF input interface. This problem occurs when the qos set was initially done with the mpls exp bit, then changed to the discard bit.

When APS is configured, you see console messages when the PRE2 is rebooted or failed over. There is no impact on the sessions.

There are no known workarounds.

CSCef72129

When configuring create on demand PVCs (individual and within a range) and PPP sessions, RP CPU utilization can be extremely high when bringing up and tearing down sessions and PVCs. This is only a concern when the configuration contains approximately 30,000 PPP sessions, and additional services are enabled such as DBS, ACLs, and service policies.

Workaround: To reduce the RP CPU usage for PPPoA sessions, reduce the number of configured PVCs in a single subinterface. To reduce the RP CPU usage for PPPoEoA sessions, use call admission control (call admission limit command).

CSCef73055

When switchover is done from the primary PRE2 to the standby PRE2, console messages appear. There is no impact to the system.

There are no known workarounds.

CSCef74370

At high call rate when the PRE2 is switched over from Primary to Secondary, some of the PTA sessions are stuck in "TRANS" state.

Workaround: Reduce the call rate of the sessions.

CSCef74990

Broadband PPPoE PTA 28,000 subinterfaces (PVCs) with policy-map, total 114,000 queues, CPU about 62 percent after traffic. This problem occurs when PPPoE PTA 28,000 subinterfaces (PVCs), 114,000 queue scaling configured with traffic.

There are no known workarounds.

CSCef75434

Inaccurate traffic counters are displayed when running traffic on the Managed LNS router. Cisco 10000 series LNS routers do not match the transmit and receive packets for Managed LNS traffic.

There are no known workarounds.

CSCef76338

PTA PPPoE 8,000 PVC 32,000 queue, send mixed size line rate traffic, packets drop. Condition: Send mixed size packets line rate traffic, packets tail drop on BQ.

Workaround: Lower the traffic rate.

CSCef79045

The auto VCs (infinite range VCs) do not disappear even when the traffic from the client is stopped. If traffic is sent on a large number of VCs at a high rate, then infinite range VCs are created, they do not disappear even when the traffic is stopped or the interface is shut down.

Workaround: Stop the traffic and wait for a couple hours for the buffer to clear up and then eventually the VCs to disappear or reload.

CSCef79688

MPLS Packets are punted to the Route Processor. This problem occurs when MPLS Packets are sent over a Frame Relay Interface.

There are no known workarounds.

CSCef80176

If a user has a vbr-nrt vc configured within a pvp and execute a no vbr-nrt pcr scr mbs command, the VC type will change to unshaped ubr and a traceback will be generated. Since only vbr-nrt VCs are supported within a vp tunnel, this operation will fail. This will lead to lingering VAI if there was a ppp session established on this VC.

The clears counters command tries to execute on the leftover VAI and causes the router to stop responding.

Workaround: Do the following:

Change VBR-nrt parameters using the vbr-nrt new_pcr new_scr new_mbs command.

Avoid deleting the VBR-nrt service configuration from a VC, which is configured within the PVP tunnel.

CSCef80300

Enabling multicast on a Cisco 10000 series router working as an LNS causes high CPU usage.

There are no known workarounds.

CSCef81452

On a Cisco 10000 series router, if the router is configured for Multilink PPP (MLPPP) with QoS and the user resets the line card containing member links, traffic can be affected as a result of the reset. This problem occurs when QoS is configured on MLPPP links and the line card is reset using the hw-module card x/y/z reset command.

Workaround: Execute the microcode reload pxf command to resolve the problem.

CSCef82322

CSCef83376

When using the VRF to local RADIUS feature that was introduced in Cisco IOS Release 12.3(7)XI1, the default authentication fails, causing the PPPoA or PPPoE session to fail.

There are no known workarounds.

CSCef84595

The OAM ping sent from the client to UUT, does not get a response back. The UUT was configured with infinite range VCs on the interface. When the client sent an OAM ping packet on one VC to the UUT, the UUT did not create the VC and did not send the response back to the client.

Workaround: If the interface on UUT is configured with no pxf queuing, then the client receives the ping response.

CSCef84923

The SAR Rev B chip on an OC-12 ATM line card reloads multiple times during ATM card reset or boot up. This problem occurs with the latest segmentation and reassembly Rev 1.7.4 running on Cisco IOS Release 12.3(7)XI2 image on a Cisco 10000 series router

There are no known workarounds.

CSCef85857

CSCef89397

On a Cisco 10000 series router running Cisco IOS Release 12.3(7)XI, alignment errors occur after executing the redundancy force-switchover main-cpu command. This problem was found while running 4,000 active PPPoE sessions and running traffic over some of the sessions.

There are no known workarounds.

CSCef89413

On a Cisco 10000 series router running Cisco IOS Release 12.3(7)XI, there is no message displayed on the router to warn the user that the router has run out of available VCCI interfaces. This problem occurs when more PPPoX sessions come in than there are available VCCIs.

There are no known workarounds.

CSCef90647

On a Cisco 10000 series router running Cisco IOS Release 12.3(7)XI, copying a large file to disk can render the disk unusable. This problem occurs when copying the file on a router with a busy CPU load.

There are no known workarounds.

CSCef91000

On a Cisco 10000 series router running Cisco IOS Release 12.3(7)XI2, when create on demand PPPoE and PPPoA VC classes are configured on the same interface, the PPPoA sessions are not established. This problem occurs only if both PPPoE and PPPoA are configured on the interface with create on demand.

Workaround: Configure different VCs for PPPoE and PPPoA.

CSCef92161

The absolute priority queue over an MLP bundle drops traffic after policing even when the traffic load is less than the MLP link capacity. This problem occurs when the MLP bundle has more than 1 member and no LFI enabled.

There are no known workarounds.

CSCef92176

Packets/Bytes counters in the show interface multilink X are counted twice. This problem only applies to locally generated traffic, such as ICMP packets.

There are no known workarounds.

CSCef92261

If large numbers of MPLS VPNs are configured, an SNMP mibwalk of the MPLS-VPN-MIB can timeout and cause a high CPU in the mplsVpnVrfPerfTable and the mplsVpnVrfRouteTable. (This MIB is not supported in Cisco IOS Releases 12.2(16)BX or 12.3(7)XI.)

Workaround: Exclude the mplsVpnMIB (or the mplsVpnVrfPerfTable and mplsVpnVrfRouteTable) from the SNMP view.

CSCef92404

On a Cisco 10000 series router running Cisco IOS Release12.3(7)XI in RPR+ mode, the microcode of an OC-12 ATM line card can reload on PRE failure. This problem occurs only when there is a PRE failure and switchover in RPR+ mode.

There are no known workarounds.

CSCef92424

The nas-port attribute is not sent correctly while authenticating rfc1,483 users. This problem occurs with a per-server group nas-port configuration enabled on a Cisco 10000 series router, the nas-port attribute [5] is not sent correctly in the access/accounting requests, while bringing up/down rfc1483 users.

There are no known workarounds.

CSCef92479

Nas-port attribute [5] gets sent out, with 'attribute nas-port none' configured while bringing up ssg rfc1483 users. This problem occurs on a Cisco 10000 series router, where ssg is enabled, and with per-server group nas-port configured. In bringing up rfc1,483 sessions, the nas-port attribute is sent out, despite 'attribute nas-port none' being configured on the router (which should disable sending out of the nas-port attribute).

There are no known workarounds.

CSCef92614

An incorrect nas-port value is sent out in authentication requests, based on what the configuration on the router was for the same. This problem occurs when the per-server group nas-port has been configured on the Cisco 10000 series router in such a way that the nas-port value in all authentication requests should be sent out in format e string of 32 I's (VPI value of incoming session) and the accounting requests should be sent out in format e string of 32 C's (VCI value of incoming session). However, on session bring up the authentication requests have a nas-port value representing the format e string value corresponding to 32 C's, which is incorrect.

There are no known workarounds.

CSCef93639

Some Multilink PPP member links turn to up/down after an MR-APS switchover. This problem occurs with T1 interfaces over 4CHOC-3 line card on the Cisco 10000 series router platform. The T1 Multilink PPP member links are seen as up/down after a couple of MR-APS switchovers.

Workaround: Resetting the 4CHOC-3 line card or reloading the router could bring the interfaces to an up/up state.

CSCef93866

On a Cisco 10000 series router running Cisco IOS Release 12.3(7)XI, the router can reload if high numbers of MLPPP and MR-APS are unconfigured using a tftp configuration file. This problem occurs when a high amount of unconfiguration commands are executed at the same time. This problem occurs with a 4CHOC-3 line card while tftp-loading an unconfiguration file to unconfigure a Multilink PPP and MR-APS related running configuration.

There are no known workarounds.

CSCef94282

On a Cisco 10000 series router running Cisco IOS Release 12.3(7)XI, the router could experience longer high CPU Utilization than normal when configuring it with VRFs with VPN overlay.

The in/out counters in the output of the show ip multicast interface command display only multicast packets punted to the RP for processing. Punted multicast packets are usually control packets. PXF switched packets are not counted in this display.

There are no known workarounds.

CSCef94838

On a broadband PTA with 14,336 PPPoE sessions and 43,000 queues, the domain server lookup failure causes a high CPU usage traceback message. This problem occurs when broadband PTA PPPoE queue scaling is configured and domain lookup is enabled.

Workaround: Issue the no ip domain server lookup command.

CSCef95719

RP CPU utilization can be high when bringing up PPPoA sessions when the following features are enabled: 31,500 PPPoA sessions, 12 VRFs, multipoint I/F, pvc (no range), autosense, pxf queueing, vbr-nrt vc shaping, hierarchical shaping, create-on-demand, ACLs (attribute 11), URPF, DBS, and QoS.

There are no known workarounds.

CSCef95738

RP CPU utilization can be high when sustaining 30,000 PPPoA sessions when the following features are enabled: 12 VRFs, multipoint I/F, pvc (no range), autosense, pxf queueing, vbr-nrt vc shaping, hierarchical shaping, create-on-demand, ACLs (attribute 11), URPF, DBS, QoS, and keepalive 60.

Workaround: The only changeable parameter is the keepalive; turning it off or changing the value to a larger one might improve the situation.

There are no known workarounds.

CSCeg01756

LAC-switched PPPoA sessions do not work when a PVC is configured to use aal5ciscoppp as the encapsulation. IPCP negotiation does not complete and PPP keepalives originating at the client timeout. This problem occurs when the Cisco 10000 series router is used as a LAC switch and the PVC is configured to use an encapsulation type of aal5ciscoppp.

Workaround: Use a different encapsulation type on the PVC such as aal5mux.

CSCeg02916

With a PRE2 system, when pinging another PRE2 across a serial link with a DSCP service policy attached at both ends and a priority queue designed to match ip dscp default, the outgoing pings go out through the priority queue, but the ping replies come back via the default queue at the remote end (not the priority queue). This is indicated by the show pxf cpu queue subinterfacename command. On the PRE1, the ping replies come back via the priority queue.

There are no known workarounds.

CSCeg03962

PPPoE sessions on standalone VCs don't go down even after the interface is shut down. This problem occurs when PPPoE sessions are created on standalone PVCs, PVC range, and on PVC in range. All sessions are up, and when the interface is shut down all the sessions went down except for the sessions on stand-alone PVCs.

There are no known workarounds.

CSCeg05090

The Cisco 10000 series router reloads upon disconnecting PPPoX sessions. While disconnecting the sessions the CPU utilization is rising to 100 percent (or close) and causing other active sessions to be disconnected. Active sessions being disconnected is also due to the inability of the Route Processor to handle the sending and receiving of the PPP keepalive on these active sessions. The reload is causing an RP switchover but the new active RP is logging the following error messages continuously:

Oct 14 17:03:32.401: %C10K-4-LC_WARN: Slot[8/0] 1oc12atm-1 SAR: 25/190 reassembly device 
Get_Channel_Stats failure, status 0x02 (port 0, handle 0x36B3, id 0x0D3E)

Get_Channel_Stats failure, status 0x02 (port 0, handle 0x11C7, id 0x00F6) 

The reload and unexpected PPPoX disconnection of active sessions is triggered by the termination of some sessions (Terminate-Request packets sent on a few sessions).

There are no known workarounds.

CSCeg05333

When pasting the config through the console port of the Cisco 10008 router the input stops once the command service compress-config is entered.

The CPU stays at 99 percent for quite some time while the CLI command does not return to the prompt. This problem occurs when 16,000 AutoVCs are configured on 16 multipoint interfaces with 1,000 VCs configured in one VC range on every interface. The same VC class is attached to every range. The modification of the queue depth within the VC class causes the high CPU usage.

There are no known workarounds.

CSCeg12977

The Cisco 10000 series router is configured as an L2TP multi-hop router. The AAA authorization does not use the method list and instead uses the default. The tunnel does not get established. This problem occurs only if "aaa authorization default" is configured along with a method list.

Workaround: Configure a method list or configure the default authorization. Configuring both at the same time can cause this problem.

Packet classification based on the DSCP IP field (or other matching criteria) may not operate as expected in a MPLS VPN configuration with an output service policy applied on an ATM PVC. This problem occurs when packets with a DSCP value set to "ef" (101110) are transmitted in the downstream direction over a VC onto which an output policy is applied. The DSCP value should trigger the classification in the priority class. Instead, packets get classified in class-default.

Workaround: Toggle the ATM interface by performing a shut/no shut on the interface.

CSCej49351

On a Cisco 10000 series router running 12.3(7)XI6 subscribers, using the PPPoE TAG feature, wait for more than 20 secs before they get connected. After further troubleshooting it is determined that the Cisco 10000 series router sends PPPoE PADS and the first LCP request at the same time. Sometimes LCP REQ gets received before the PPPoE PADS. For that reason the CPE will discard the LCP REQ packet without sending any LCP packet back to the Cisco 10000 series router which waits for 20 seconds (ppp timeout retry default) before sending again that LCP REQ.

Workaround: Use the ppp timeout retry command in the Virtual Template, to reduce the timeout retry.

There are no known workarounds.

CSCek53052

Issuing the l2tp tunnel timeout no-session never command generates an invalid configuration, which results in the router ignoring the command after rebooting. The following sample configuration shows the invalid configuration:

Router# l2tp tunnel timeout no-session never 

vpdn-group 1
 accept-dialin
 protocol l2tp
 virtual-template 1
 terminate-from hostname sp_lac
 local name lns
 no l2tp tunnel authentication
 l2tp tunnel password 7 02050D480809
 l2tp tunnel nosession-timeout -2   <------ invalid configuration option

This problem occurs when configuring L2TP tunnels.

Workaround: After rebooting, reconfigure the l2tp tunnel timeout no-session never command. Depending on network usage, setting the no-session timeout to a large value might also fix the problem.

CSCek59605

A process_suspend() does not work as expected, causing the router to show high CPU usage.

Workaround: Format the slot devices and quit the session.

There are no known workarounds.

CSCin68641

In Cisco IOS Release 12.3(4)T3, when trying to configure a VPDN-group for PPPoE after removing the previously configured bba-group command for PPPoE, the protocol command in the VPDN accept-dialin configuration mode does not allow the PPPoE option.

Workaround: Before removing the bba-group command, remove all references to the group. This requires the user to manually remove, from all interface and PVC specifications, either the protocol or encapsulation statements that reference the BBA group to be deleted. Please note it is currently not enough to only remove the interface (or subinterface) or PVC specification—the subordinately defined BBA group references must also be specifically and completely removed.

A Cisco 10008 router acting as LAC and also performing PTA for PPPoA sessions may see the following message on the console or log:

Assertion failure in /view/BLD-v123_7_xi3a1_throttle.V123_7_XI3C/vob/ios.sys4/sys/obj-4k- 
c10k/../toaster/c10k_rp/c10k_qos.c:abs_priority_notification_handler() (4649) Expression 
'service_policy_local' = 0x0 

There does not appear to be any impact to traffic or sessions on the router.

Workaround: This problem required many modifications to be occurring simultaneously on the box and a reasonably high level of traffic. The workaround therefore is to reduce the number of service-policy configuration changes made per second. Avoiding executing the show policy-map interface command while removing a service-policy should also avoid this problem. These messages did not appear to have a detrimental affect on the sessions or traffic.

Traffic convergence after the removal of APS on the 1-port channelized OC-12 line card was greater than 2 seconds. This has been fixed

CSCed64631

A PPP session should not start for service-type=login. A RADIUS response may ignore the framed-protocol attribute when it is an unsupported protocol. An attribute list might be created from this RADIUS response without the framed-protocol attribute. In this situation, PPP may not find the framed-protocol attribute and may continue the session. This has been fixed.

CSCed81202

The HWTAG:Invalid s/w taginfo error message was occasionally displayed after an interface transition. This has been fixed.

CSCef47280

A T1 interface configured under an AU-4 on a 4-port channelized OC-3 line card did not come up when interoperating with a 3rd party test analyzer device.

On a Cisco 10000 series router, if you configured the AU-4 T1 interface on a 4-port channelized OC-3 line card that was connected to a 3rd party test analyzer device on the far end with the same configuration, the T1 interface did not come up. This has been fixed.

CSCef94552

In an MPLS VPN scenario, a PE configured with ISDN backup for MPLS might be unable to forward packets over the backup link. The LDP session comes up and labels are correctly exchanged, but even though the label information base (LIB) contains the labels, they are not populated into the Label Forwarding Information Base (LFIB); entries appear there as untagged. Also, the TAG adjacency for the Dialer interface remains incomplete. This has been fixed.

CSCeg48971

The command to display cached PPPoE configuration information is present in Cisco IOS 12.3T images, but not in Cisco IOS Release 12.3(7)XI3. The affected command is show pppoe derived. This has been fixed.

CSCeg52893

VTY/TTY sessions sometimes hung after unsuccessfully attempting to authenticate to an external AAA server. External authentication failed before the maximum number of AAA attempts were reached locally. The show line x command displayed the following message for a line that was still considered active:

Modem state: Ready, Carrier Dropped

This has been fixed.

CSCeg62206

When high CPU utilization occurred on the core router, the router locked up and could not be accessed using Telnet or console. The TPLUS process was holding nearly 50-60 percent of the CPU at this time. This has been fixed.

CSCeg83467

The router crashed whenever encapsulation changed from AAL5SNAP to AAL0 on a private virtual circuit (PVC). This has been fixed.

CSCeg90131

When a service policy was applied to a channelized T3 virtual routing and forwarding (VRF) interface, changes to the percentage of bandwidth to allocate to a traffic class that is defined in the service policy was causing the policy to be removed from the interface. This has been fixed.

CSCeh30518

The queue-limit under queue is not taken when a policy-map is already attached with a child policy-map This has been fixed.

CSCeh58848

Police counters went to the maximum value when the police configuration was changed. This has been fixed.

CSCek00596

When running Multilink PPP (MLP) traffic, the PXF failed with some type of DMA command error such as "PXF DMA OQC at End of Descriptor With Non-Zero Continuation Bit." This occurred when numerous MLP bundles were configured and there was also a high amount of traffic creating a shortage of packet buffers. This has been fixed.

CSCek39034

The PPPoE VSF circuit-id tag debug was missing from the client. This has been fixed.

CSCek40657

The PPP termination and aggregation (PTA) failed while downloading the configuration. This has been fixed.

CSCek44183

A memory leak was occurring at 10k_atm_teardownvc_bulk when PPPoA sessions were established on a VC range. This has been fixed.

CSCek47264

A traceback message occurs when simultaneously reconfiguring the router in console and Telnet mode. For example, issuing the class-int pppoa command at the console and simultaneously issuing the shutdown or no shutdown command in a Telnet session causes a traceback message to appear. This has been fixed.

CSCek55136

The Cisco 10008 router was sometimes restarting due to a bus error if the router was running Cisco IOS Release 12.3(7)XI7b. This has been fixed.

CSCek56775

An unwarranted message is reported when a user-defined class is added, with priority, to a policy-map that has class-default. Priority should not be in a child policy if the parent has just default class with only shape action. Also, the priority is not accepted in the class. This has been fixed.

CSCeh97080

When Multiprotocol Label Switching (MPLS) is enabled on a router, one or more LDP sessions might be disrupted during periods of extremely high CPU use. This has been fixed.

CSCir00074

The router failed when casnDisconnect was set to "true" for a PPPoE session. This has been fixed.

CSCin87312

Addresses given to the client were not from the assigned Ascend-IP-Pool. The IP address is assigned from a pool (Ascend-IP-Pool) of addresses that are kept by the NAS. When RADIUS sends a Framed-IP-address of value 255.255.255.255 and a valid Ascend-IP-Pool, then the NAS should allow the peer to select an IP address from the default IP pool. This has been fixed.

CSCin98817

PDSN running YF2 based engineering special was reloaded due to a bus error. The reload occurred while deleting the PPP conditional debug.This is a rare event as the bus error occurs only when the deletion of the PPP conditional debug happens simultaneously with the connection deletion. This has been fixed.

CSCsa53117

Potential MLS cef freeze if interface status changed. MLS cef freeze was occurring when an interface was shut down or VRF routes were changed and no other interfaces could be provisioned. This also caused ping/connectivity problems. This has been fixed.

CSCsa58340

Police command triggered software reload. The reload occurred if the policy map being edited already contained the maximum number of classes that the router supports and an attempt to add one more class is made. This has been fixed.

CSCsa84298

Request was made to report the total subscribed rate for a VP (sum of SCRs). This has been fixed.

CSCsb06200

For preauthorization using Service-type Outbound, calls could fail with the error "Unsupported Service-Type: 5. No supported types found." This has been fixed.

CSCsb07279

The Cisco IOS software did not see a new IPv4 prefix list added to the route map that ISIS redistributes. This has been fixed.

CSCsc31958

Spurious memory accesses after the show policy-map interface command is issued on an ATM PVC. This has been fixed.

CSCsc40078

When a class in a service policy is configured with 1 percent of the remaining bandwidth, the show policy-map interface command output displays 0 as the weight value for this class. This is just a display issue. No functionality is impacted by this problem. This has been fixed.

CSCsc42260

BW is not released from the class-default after FR pvc is deleted/re-defined. This has been fixed.

CSCsc56407

Non-priority traffic goes through the priority queue. This has been fixed.

CSCsc84506

Cannot add interface descriptions on Virtual-Access sub-interfaces. This has been fixed.

CSCsc91155

A Cisco IOS Release 12.3(7)XI7 failure generated the following error:

%C10K_QUEUE_CFG_GENERAL-2-EREVENT 

This has been fixed.

CSCsd59028

Error message was displayed when Frame Relay subinterfaces were created. This has been fixed.

CSCsd61220

An oversubscribed warning occurs when a hierarchical policy is removed from the main interface or when the hierarchical policy is applied twice to the main interface of any line cards. This has been fixed.

CSCsd61680

Configuring a static ARP entry that points to a node on a QinQ subnet caused a traceback to appear. This has been fixed.

CSCsd69365

Executing the dir all-f command caused the CPU utilization to go high. This has been fixed.

CSCsd77078

Ping over serial interfaces failed during a U2 run because the output VCCI was not being set correctly. This has been fixed.

CSCsd82487

PXF routing failed for GigE main interface traffic because the PXF CEF entry for the main interface was improperly programmed to VCCI 0 for destination entries that point to next-hop. This has been fixed.

CSCsd86963

Removing a GigabitEthernet subinterface with SSG configured was causing a forced failure. This has been fixed.

CSCsd87867

Maximum burst size is not configurable on an ATM VBR-nrt PVC. This has been fixed.

CSCsd94129

After PPP is configured and ISIS is subsequently enabled, the router failed to negotiate OSICP for ISIS adjacencies. Encapsulation failures were seen and PPP rejected the OSICP continuously. This has been fixed.

CSCse27599

Applying policing with IP type of service (ToS) classification causes the router to drop packets, but the output from the show policy interface tunnel # command does not indicate that the packets were classified or dropped. However, the show pxf cpu stat qos command does display information indicating that the packets were classified. This occurs when a router configuration consists of a PRE2 with Ethernet over multicast (EoM), any transport over multicast (AToM), or Layer 3 VPNs configured, and GRE tunnels are configured between the source and receiving router on various interfaces. This has been fixed.

CSCse34173

Some of the serial interfaces become stuck in an up or down state, and traceback messages and FIFO drain errors occur. This occurs when the router performs a PRE failover, resets a line card, or reloads the PXF, or when multilinks flap because a large number of multilinks are configured with traffic that consists of smaller IP packets. Issuing a shutdown or no shutdown command on the multilinks or member links does not recover the interfaces from the up or down state. This has been fixed.

CSCse49188

Reconfiguring an ATM PVP was causing inconsistencies between the primary and secondary PRE. This caused the secondary PRE to reload and resynchronize with the primary PRE. This has been fixed.

CSCse52763

Changing the parent shaper value on a hierarchical policy (by using the no shape rate or shape rate commands) attached to a Frame Relay interface, or Fast Ethernet or Gigabit Ethernet interface results in the removal of all queues other than the class-default and pak_priority queues on the interface. All traffic belonging to the other queues is dropped. This has been fixed.

CSCse62507

An nf_export_pkt_handle assertion error occurred in simulation. This has been fixed.

CSCse70998

The PRE-2 I/O FPGA Illegal Access interrupt handler was not clearing the I/O FPGA Illegal Access interrupt, causing the software to loop indefinitely. This has been fixed.

CSCse76134

The router images in the 12.3(7)XI and 12.2S software branches did not include ppp_fast.o. This has been fixed.

CSCse77657

Unable to configure policer on c-def if 64-class nest pmap applied to PPP session. This has been fixed.

CSCse81287

The resolution for CSCse66783 had the potential to cause a packet ordering problem. This has been fixed.

CSCse83989

Resetting or inserting a line card while traffic is flowing caused the line card to reset continuously. This has been fixed.

CSCse84350

ATM VCs go down in combination with OAM and DBS. This has been fixed.

CSCse85200

Specifically crafted CDP packets can cause a router to allocate and keep extra memory. Exploitation of this behavior by sending multiple specifically crafted CDP packets could cause memory allocation problems on the router. Since CDP is a layer-2 protocol, this issue can only be triggered by systems that are residing on the same network segment. This has been fixed.

CSCsf07424

The line card reloads users who are disconnecting and the system was malfunctioning because the PXF sent a heavy rate of traffic to the route processor (RP). Buffer depletion created allocation failures, causing the system to fail. This has been fixed.

CSCsf07847

CDP may fail to discover neighbor information. This has been fixed.

CSCsf17577

When the Cisco 10008 router switched traffic into an L2TP tunnel, the router was not always accounting for the switched traffic. For example, when downloading a file (with a known file size) through an L2TP tunnel that terminates on a Cisco 10000 L2TP network server (LNS), the interface counters and AAA accounting might display less traffic than what was actually downloaded. The following message might appear in the router log files:

 %GENERAL-4-WRNEVENT: Incomplete Stats Collection

This was only affecting L2TP traffic. It was not affecting traffic that was not sent through an L2TP tunnel or through a tunnel using any other protocol. This has been fixed.

CSCsf19133

When SNMP polled the cbQosPolicyMapCfgTable object of the CISCO-CLASS-BASED-QOS-MIB, it was not retrieving the child policy maps that were applied to a class in a parent policy map. This occurred when the Cisco 10008 router was running Cisco IOS Release 12.3(7)xi7e. This has been fixed.

CSCsg28139

The platform MPLS code is using old definitions to get VLAN IDs. It does not match either the header file or the source file. This has been fixed.

CSCsg30882

All ATM PVCs were becoming inactive (INAC) for an interface. This has been fixed.

CSCsg31453

An ATM configuration change could cause the SAR to reload. VCs could flap once (get torn down and immediately be recreated) on all ports when an ATM CLI was entered if there was a setting for the MTU other than the default. This has been fixed.

CSCsg37876

The following BADSHARE messages occurred during the router boot sequence. This has been fixed.

*Oct 12 03:08:20: %SYS-2-BADSHARE: Bad refcount in datagram_done, ptr=201F90EC, count=0
-Traceback= 60408E70 60092E04 60092E84 60414D90 60C65F24 60C429F0 60877E5C 60852608

CSCsg42502

Potential red zone overrun in the 10k_buffer_monitor. Although the buffer dump function of the 2RP policer was set up safely, under certain conditions if the limit of the buffer was not reached the next buffer could be so big that it overwrote the assigned space. This has been fixed.

CSCsg45130

When online insertion and removal (OIR) of a line card occurred and SNMP was enabled, occasional SONETMIB-1-DELETE: error messages appeared. This has been fixed.

CSCsg83816

SNMP did not report physical interfaces after a line card was removed and reinserted on the same slot in the router. The show snmp mib ifmib ifindex command still reported ifindexes, but the debug snmp packet command indicated that the router was no longer sending physical interface ifindexes. The SNMP Management server did not receive ifindexes either. Only physical interfaces were not reported; ifindexes for subinterfaces or any other line card elements were not affected. This has been fixed.

CSCsg84522

The router failed because of Inverse ARP (INARP) managed timer issues. This occurred when the INARP timer was configured or unconfigured. This has been fixed.
