This chapter contains the following sections:

Limitations and Restrictions

The following limitations apply to the Cisco ASR 903 Router in IOS XE Release 3.9(0)S and later:

TDM Limitation

  • The configure replace command is not supported for TDM interfaces.

ATM IMA Limitation

  • You can create a maximum of 16 IMA groups on each T1/E1 interface module.

Bidirectional Forwarding Detection Limitations

  • The minimum supported timer value for software-based BFD sessions is 200 ms x 3 (using a multiplier of 3). The router supports up to 64 offloaded BFD sessions using a 200 ms x 3 timer.
  • The Cisco ASR 903 Router supports hardware offloading of BFD echo mode packets for up to 255 sessions. The router handles additional BFD echo mode sessions in software.

Note You cannot convert more than 255 normal BFD sessions to echo mode BFD sessions; the router reaches the offload limit and you must remove and reconfigure the remaining sessions.


  • The minimum supported timer value for offloaded BFD echo mode sessions is 3.3 ms.
  • In Release 3.9, the router keeps hardware and software-handled BFD echo mode sessions active during ISSU. Releases prior to 3.9 do not maintain hardware-offloaded BFD echo mode sessions during ISSU.
  • If you downgrade from 3.9 to a prior release with a BFD echo mode configuration, you must increase the timer to 200ms or greater.

Bridge Domain Interface Limitation

  • The mtu command is not supported on BDI interfaces; however the ip mtu command is supported.

Clocking and Timing Limitations

  • Only a single clocking input source can be configured within each group of eight ports (0-7 and 8-15) on the T1/E1 interface module using the network-clock input-source command.
  • Synchronous Ethernet clock sources are not supported with PTP. Conversely, PTP clock sources are not supported with synchronous Ethernet. However, you can use hybrid clocking to allow the router to obtain frequency using Synchronous Ethernet and phase using PTP.
  • PTP over Ethernet is not supported in multicast mode; only unicast mode is supported
  • G.8265.1 telecom profile is not supported for PTP over Ethernet.
  • The Cisco ASR 903 Router does not support a mix of IPv4 and Ethernet clock-ports when acting as a transparent clock or boundary clock.
  • Out-of-band clocking and the recovered-clock command are not supported.
  • The Synchronization Status Message (SSM) is not currently on OC-3 and OC-12 interfaces.
  • End-to-end Transparent Clock is not supported for PTP over Ethernet.

Dying Gasp Limitations

The Cisco ASR 903 Router supports dying gasp under the following scenarios:

  • Ethernet OAM is disabled
  • Interface is shut down
  • Interface enters error-disabled state
  • Router reload
  • Dying Gasp is not supported in the event of a power failure.

EFP Limitations

  • Trunk EFPs are not supported on port channel interfaces.
  • Up to 1000 VLANs are supported for trunk EFP over etherchannel traffic.

Ethernet IM Limitations

  • The Cisco ASR 903 Router does not support the Facilities Data Link (FDL) on Ethernet interfaces.
  • The Cisco ASR 903 Router does not support the mac-address command on Gigabit Ethernet interface modules.
  • 10 Gigabit Ethernet interface modules are not supported in slots 4 and 5.
  • When you install a Gigabit Ethernet IM in the topmost interface module slot (slot 5), the last interface (interface GigabitEthernet0/5/0) is not operational; the port is reserved for internal communication.
  • When you configure the copper and SFP Gigabit Ethernet interface modules on a router with redundant RSPs, the speed and duplex commands are not visible in interface configuration mode until you apply a shutdown / no shutdown to the interface.
  • Fragmentation is not supported with Multicast traffic.
  • The SFP-GE-T module supports only 100 Mbps and 1000 Mbps speeds.
  • Load balancing using an odd number of port-channel member links is not supported.

IP Multicast Limitation

  • Bandwidth-Based Call Admission Control (CAC) feature is not supported.

IPv6 Limitations

The following limitation applies when using IPv6 on the Cisco ASR 903 Router:

  • IPv6 Neighbor Discovery (ND) cache timer expiry is 4 hours. To prevent the neighbour adjacency from being deleted after the timer expires:

configure hardware based BFD sessions with the neighbours, or

configure static IPv6 neighbours, or

configure the ipv6 nd cache expire timer refresh command.

IS-IS Limitations

  • IS-IS over IPv6 is not supported on VRF instances.
  • Only one IS-IS process is permitted when you configure IS-IS with the address-family ipv6 and bfd-all-interfaces commands.
  • The IS-IS total and per-stream convergence time increases as the number of prefixes increases.
  • The Cisco ASR 903 Router supports up to 3000 IS-IS nodes.

MLPPP Limitations

The following limitations apply when using MLPPP on the Cisco ASR 903 Router:

  • All links in an MLPPP bundle must be on the same interface module.
  • All links in an MLPPP bundle must be of the same bandwidth.
  • The Cisco ASR 903 Router supports a maximum of 16 links per bundle
  • To change the MLPPP bundle fragmentation mode between enabled and disabled, perform a shutdown / no shutdown on the bundle.
  • LFI is not supported
  • Multiclass MLP is not supported
  • The Cisco ASR 903 Router supports MLPPP statistics with the following limitations:

Packet counters on the bundle display the number of fragments rather than packets.

Control packets are accounted on the bundle.

  • If you increase the maximum transmission unit (MTU) size on an MLPPP interface to a value higher than the maximum received reconstructed unit (MRRU) value on the peer interface, this can bring the MLPPP tunnel down. To restore the tunnel, perform a shutdown/no shutdown on the interface.

MPLS VPN Limitation
