CSCsi17020- Router may reload after NATing fragmented skinny packets

Symptom    A router that is running Cisco IOS may unexpectedly reload. The crashes can be very different in nature, but the crashinfo should show the IP Input process as the currently running process:---- Partial decode of process block ----Pid 84: Process "IP Input" stack 0x46C3C080 savedsp 0x46758540

Conditions   This symptom is seen when the router is configured for NAT and receives a fragmented skinny packet that it needs to reassemble and translate.

Workaround   Prevent the router from receiving a fragmented skinny packet by ensuring the path MTU between the call manager server and the router is large enough. Usually skinny packets are not larger than 800 bytes.

CSCsi55685- kron removes recurring tclsh cli after first run

Symptom    The following recurring kron schedule fails and gets removed after the first run. kron occurrence tcl in 1 recurring policy-list tcl ! kron policy-list tcl cli tclsh disk0:hello.tcl!

Conditions   enter the following configuration commands: kron occurrence tcl in 1 recurring policy-list tcl ! kron policy-list tcl cli tclsh unix:hello.tcl ! create a file on disk0: called hello.tcl with the following contents: puts "hello"

Workaround   None

CSCsk25697- unprotected buginf may cause cpuhog under repeated udp traffic to 53

Symptom    A router with DNS server configured may show CPUHOG tracebacks when it receives repeated crafted udp packets to its port 53. Sample for 3800 router: %SYS-3-CPUHOG: Task is running for (40004)msecs, more than (2000)msecs (5/0),process = DNS Server Input. -Traceback=0x60D68CDC 0x6033D984 0x6180E58C FFFFFFA0 3F 4E 60 0x708DFD18 06 FFFFFFFE FFFFFF88 FFFFFFA5 FFFFFFA3 FFFFFF92 FFFFFFA7 FFFFFF8B 7A 3A FFFFFFF5 17 FFFFFF9B FFFFFFC9 FFFFFF9B FFFFFFA2

Conditions   Router needs to have dns server configured and listen to udp port 53 conf t ip dns server end

Workaround   Apply rate limit to port 53 to interfaces facing untrusted networks: access-list 100 permit udp any any eq domain access-list 100 deny ip any any interface GigabitEthernet0/0 ip address 10.2.2.2 255.255.255.0 rate-limit input access-group 100 8000 1500 2000 conform-action transmit exceed-action drop.

CSCsl48237- incorrect bounding length in sstrncpy() calls in l2tp files

Symptom    If a large name string is used when configuring the command "security crypto-profile" under the l2tp-class submode, we could have a buffer overflow which may crash the router.

Conditions   This problem only occurs if a large name string is used in the "security crypto-profile" command.

Workaround   There is no workaround.

CSCsl59294- %DATACORRUPTION-1-DATAINCONSISTENCY at caplog_logger_proc

Symptom    A Cisco router may see the following error once shortly after bootup: *Nov 21 15:16:28 CDT: %DATACORRUPTION-1-DATAINCONSISTENCY: copy error, -PC= 0x416DE178 -Traceback= 0x412593C0 0x41276250 0x412947F4 0x416DE178 0x416DE650 0x423E303C 0x423E3020 *Nov 21 15:16:28 CDT: %DATACORRUPTION-1-DATAINCONSISTENCY: copy error, -PC= 0x416DE188 -Traceback= 0x412593C0 0x41276250 0x412947F4 0x416DE188 0x416DE650 0x423E303C 0x423E3020 No functional impact is seen.

Conditions   Occurs on a Cisco 2811 router running Cisco IOS Release 12.4(13d).

Workaround   Disable the following configuration on the router: voice hpi capture buffersize voice hpi capture destination filename

CSCek41543- Cisco2811 Processor Pool Memory Leak in ISDN and Crash

Symptom    A Cisco 2811 router running Cisco IOS Release 12.4(7a) may have a memory leak in the ISDN process as has been seen in the show process memory. The leak rate appears to be about 1.20MB/Hour.

Conditions   This symptom has been observed with BRI-U interface that is UP/UP (spoofing).

Workaround   Administratively shut down the BRI interface.

CSCsi17020- Router may reload after NATing fragmented skinny packets

Symptom    A router that is running Cisco IOS may unexpectedly reload. The crashes can be very different in nature, but the crashinfo should show the IP Input process as the currently running process:---- Partial decode of process block ----Pid 84: Process "IP Input" stack 0x46C3C080 savedsp 0x46758540

Conditions   This symptom is seen when the router is configured for NAT and receives a fragmented skinny packet that it needs to reassemble and translate.

Workaround   Prevent the router from receiving a fragmented skinny packet by ensuring the path MTU between the call manager server and the router is large enough. Usually skinny packets are not larger than 800 bytes.

CSCsi21389- One-way multicast traffic over wireless.

Symptom    Routers that have the ability to use the optional 802.11b/g card, such as the Cisco ISR series do not pass multicast traffic across the wireless interface.

Conditions   Cisco routers that have the 802.11 b/g HWIC card do not pass multicast traffic across the wireless interface, though multicast routing is enabled and otherwise is configured normally. Wireless hosts cannot pass multicast traffic between each other, and multicast traffic from the wired network will not be transmitted out the wireless interface.

Workaround   None

CSCsi44510- CME multicast audio to the 7921 cuts out on HWIC-AP

Symptom    Multicast audio to the 7921 cuts out after a few seconds and will not resume.

Workaround   none

CSCsj14277- Wrong Calling ID by transfer, only with 7931 - 12.4(4)XC6

Symptom    The caller id on the transfer-to is not updated with the transferee after the transferor commits the transfer.

Conditions   When the transfer-to answers the call from the transferor, the caller id on the transfer-to shows that the call is from transferor. After the transferor commits the the transfer, the caller id should be updated with the transferee. This caller id display issue can be observed if the transferor DN is shared by the transfer-to.

Workaround   There is no workaround without removing the XOR DN from the XTO.

CSCsj34770- Having problem in establishing QSIG Prime call

Symptom    QSIG PRIME call is not going between slave and master routers

Conditions   This issue is seen in 12.4(16.5)T

Workaround   No workaround

Symptom    Wrong isdn cause code comming while making call to wrong destination

Conditions   While call made to wrong destination number

Workaround   none

CSCsk25697- unprotected buginf may cause cpuhog under repeated udp traffic to 53

Symptom    A router with DNS server configured may show CPUHOG tracebacks when it receives repeated crafted udp packets to its port 53. Sample for 3800 router: %SYS-3-CPUHOG: Task is running for (40004)msecs, more than (2000)msecs (5/0),process = DNS Server Input. -Traceback= 0x60D68CDC 0x6033D984 0x6180E58C FFFFFFA0 3F 4E 60 0x708DFD18 06 FFFFFFFE FFFFFF88 FFFFFFA5 FFFFFFA3 FFFFFF92 FFFFFFA7 FFFFFF8B 7A 3A FFFFFFF5 17 FFFFFF9B FFFFFFC9 FFFFFF9B FFFFFFA2.

Conditions   Router needs to have dns server configured and listen to udp port 53 conf t ip dns server end.

Workaround   Apply rate limit to port 53 to interfaces facing untrusted networks: access-list 100 permit udp any any eq domain access-list 100 deny ip any any interface GigabitEthernet0/0 ip address 10.2.2.2 255.255.255.0 rate-limit input access-group 100 8000 1500 2000 conform-action transmit exceed-action drop.

CSCsk71610- CCSIP_UDP_SOCKET causes high CPU Usage

Symptom    Incoming and outgoing calls fail due to high CPU Usage.

Conditions   CPU Usage is at 99-100% and CCSIP_UDP_SOCKET is using 88+%.

Workaround   There is no workaround.

CSCsl18024- HWIC Country Code Issue

Symptom    Error message %DOT11-3-POWERS_INVALID: Interface Dot11Radio0/3/0, no valid power levels available is displayed during boot up.

Conditions   Occurs for cerain HWIC-AP cards with wrong country code values

Workaround   Work around is to use HWIC AP cards of correct country code values.

CSCsl59294- %DATACORRUPTION-1-DATAINCONSISTENCY at caplog_logger_proc

Symptom    A Cisco router may see the following error once shortly after bootup: *Nov 21 15:16:28 CDT: %DATACORRUPTION-1-DATAINCONSISTENCY: copy error, -PC= 0x416DE178 -Traceback= 0x412593C0 0x41276250 0x412947F4 0x416DE178 0x416DE650 0x423E303C 0x423E3020 *Nov 21 15:16:28 CDT: %DATACORRUPTION-1-DATAINCONSISTENCY: copy error, -PC= 0x416DE188 -Traceback= 0x412593C0 0x41276250 0x412947F4 0x416DE188 0x416DE650 0x423E303C 0x423E3020 No functional impact is seen.

Conditions   Occurs on a Cisco 2811 router running Cisco IOS Release 12.4(13d).

Workaround   Disable the following configuration on the router: voice hpi capture buffersize voice hpi capture destination filename.

CSCsm04209- PVDM2-DM fails to initiate calls over EuroISDN BRI while TEI is 
inactive.

Symptom    Modem calls fail to establish when 'isdn tei-negotiation firstcall' configured on ISDN interfaces.

Conditions   The ISDN BRI interfaces are added to CSM signaling interface queue only when they are active (layer 2, MULTI-FRAME-ESTABLISHED). Since, the ISDN L2 is not activated until the first call is initiated which inturn means there is no signaling interface available, which results in call failure.

Workaround   Add the ISDN BRI interfaces to CSM signaling interface if they are not administratively down (shutdown).

CSCsm45689- UC520 crashed when system test was executed with debug logs enabled.

Symptom    UC520 crashed when system test was executed with debug logs enabled.

Conditions   UC520 crashed when system test was executed with the below debug logs enabled. debug callmon core debug callmon info debug callmon detail debug ccsip message.

Workaround   None.

CSCsm46227- Router crash with CPUHOG for trunk port monitoring.

Symptom    Cisco 3845 may crash when there is an incoming trunk call.

Conditions   Occurs if the shared trunk DN is monitored by a FXO port and it is call-forwarded to another trunk DN with "call-forward all".

Workaround   None.

CSCsm49011- VG224 SCCP port plays reorder before CM routes call-IOS interdigit 
timer.

Symptom    On an FXS port configured for SCCP usage (such as on a VG224), reorder is heard 10 seconds after the last digit dialed when a number is dialed that requires waiting for interdigit timeout on CallManager.

Conditions   Using SCCP controlled FXS port on an IOS box. Dialing a number which requires waiting for interdigit timeout to route (such as a variable length international number).

Workaround   Increase the interdigit timeout setting on each SCCP FXS port to 16 secs (to be greater than CallManager's 15 secs). This is done by configuring "timeouts interdigit 16" under each voice port. OR decrease the CallManager interdigit timeout to 9 seconds (to be less than the VG224 port's 10 secs). This is done by changing the CallManager service parameter T302 Timer value to 9000 msec (9 seconds). If this workaround is chosen the new interdigit timeout setting will apply to all devices attached to the CallManager, not just the IOS SCCP FXS ports.

CSCsm55045- Crash illegal deallocation of unassigned/in-use memory.

Symptom    A Cisco router configured with Call Manager Express (CME) may reload due to point to illegal deallocation of unassigned/in-use memory.

Conditions   Occurs when CME is enabled.

Workaround   There is no workaround.

CSCsm50874- CME: calling name in facility IE doesn't display on IP phone.

Symptom    CME 4.2 does not display calling name when sent in an ISDN facility IE message. The facility is received and interpreted correctly however it doesn't show up on the IP phone display.

Workaround   IOS 12.4(11)XW3 and 12.4(15)XY correct display the calling name.

CSCsm65685- Need to enable vendorConfig parameters on 7912.

Symptom    After the configuraiton of telephony-service service phone settingsAccess 2 <settingsAccess>2</settingsAccess>" is missing in system:/its/XMLDefault7921.cnf.xml.

Workaround   None.

CSCsm92260- CSKU wrong country code issue. 

Symptom    Error message Feb 28 08:50:28.459: %DOT11-3-POWERS_INVALID: Interface Dot11Radio0/0/0, no valid power levels available seen on router console during router boot up.

Conditions   Occurs for cerain CSKU cards with wrong country code values.

Workaround   Work around is to use CSKU cards of correct country code values.

CSCso33776- spurious access error in AFW_M_Destination_Initiate.

Symptom    Spurious memory access messages may be generated by a router. Mar 28 02:45:02.016: %ALIGN-3-SPURIOUS: Spurious memory access made at 0x41DCE7E0 reading 0x60 Mar 28 02:45:02.016: %ALIGN-3-TRACE: -Traceback= 0x41DCE7E0 0x41DCF674 0x41DD351C 0x41DD6BBC 0x41DA96CC 0x41E0E428 0x41E0F2C4 0x41DF36D4. This issue may be cosmetic in nature.

Conditions   These spurious memory accesses may be triggered by a T1/E1 PRI call or other event.

Workaround   There is no known workaround. This issue may be cosmetic in nature.

Port Numbering

Port numbering conventions for Cisco VG224 voice gateway includes:

An external Compact Flash card is numbered CF 0.

10/100BASE-T Fast Ethernet ports are numbered Fast Ethernet 0/0 and Fast Ethernet 0/1 from right to left.

FXS voice port numbering begins at 2/0 and extends to 2/7, 2/15, or 2/23, depending on the number of voice ports.

ROM Monitor Commands

The Cisco VG224 voice gateway adds new ROM monitor commands for downloading a software image by TFTP for disaster recovery and for FPGA selection.

The tftpdnld Command

The tftpdnld command downloads a Cisco IOS software image from a LAN server to Compact Flash using TFTP.

tftpdnld [-r]—Begins the TFTP copy procedure.

r—Loads the Cisco IOS software image only to DRAM and launches the image without writing the image to Compact Flash.

The tftpdnld command requires you to specify certain variables in the following syntax:

VARIABLE_NAME=value

The following variables are required:

IP_ADDRESS—IP address for the router you are using.

IP_SUBNET_MASK—Subnet mask for the router you are using.

DEFAULT_GATEWAY—Default gateway for the router you are using.

TFTP_SERVER—IP address of the server from which you want to download the image file.

TFTP_FILE—Name of the file that you want to download.

The following tftpdnld variables are optional:

TFTP_VERBOSE—Print setting. The default is 1.

0=quiet—After you enter the tftpdnld command, the prompt

Do you wish to continue? y/n:

is the only information that appears until the command completes successfully or fails.

1=progress—Displays the state of the required tftpdnld command variables. Also displays progress characters to indicate successful and lost packet transmissions.

2=verbose—Displays all progress print setting messages, along with error information. The information provided by this print setting may be useful when debugging interface link and configuration problems that may prevent connecting to the TFTP server.

TFTP_RETRY_COUNT—Number of times from 1 to 65535 that the ROM monitor retries ARP and ACK. The default is 7 retries.

TFTP_TIMEOUT—Overall timeout of the download operation in seconds. The range is from 1 to 65535 seconds. The default is 7200 seconds.

TFTP_CHECKSUM—Performs a checksum test on the image: 0=checksum off, 1=checksum on. The default is 1.

FE_SPEED_MODE—Sets the Fast Ethernet speed and duplex mode. 0=10 Mbps half-duplex mode, 1=10 Mbps full-duplex mode, 2=100 Mbps half-duplex mode, 3=100 Mbps full-duplex mode, 4=auto-negotiation. The default is 4.

After you specify the variables, you must reenter the tftpdnld command. For example:

rommon 1 > IP_ADDRESS=172.15.19.11
rommon 2 > IP_SUBNET_MASK=255.255.255.0
rommon 3 > DEFAULT_GATEWAY=172.16.19.1
rommon 4 > TFTP_SERVER=172.15.20.10
rommon 5 > TFTP_FILE=/tftpboot/cVG224-i-mz
rommon 6 > tftpdnld

     IP_ADDRESS=172.15.19.11
     IP_SUBNET_MASK=255.255.255.0
     DEFAULT_GATEWAY=172.16.19.1
     TFTP_SERVER=172.15.20.10
     TFTP_FILE=/tftpboot/VG224-i-mz
     
Invoke this command for disaster recovery only.
WARNING: all existing data in all partitions on flash will be lost!
Do you wish to continue? y/n: [n]:

Enter y to begin downloading the Cisco IOS software image. When the process is complete, the ROM monitor mode prompt appears on your screen.
