Cisco CSR 1000V Series Cloud Services Router Release Notes

First Published: April 1, 2013

Last Updated: August 14, 2014

OL-26569-15

This release notes document provides information about Cisco CSR 1000V Series Cloud Services Routers Release 3S up to and including Cisco IOS XE 3.13S.

Cisco CSR 1000V Series Cloud Services Routers Overview

The Cisco CSR 1000V Cloud Services Router provides a cloud-based virtual router that is deployed on a virtual machine (VM) instance on x86 server hardware. The Cisco CSR 1000V router is a virtual platform that provides selected Cisco IOS XE security and switching features on a virtualization platform.

When the Cisco CSR 1000V virtual IOS XE software is deployed on a VM, the Cisco IOS software functions just as if it were deployed on a traditional Cisco hardware platform. You can configure different features depending on the supported Cisco IOS XE software image. The Cisco CSR 1000V supports a subset of Cisco IOS XE software features and technologies.

The Cisco CSR 1000V provides secure connectivity from the enterprise premise (such as a branch office or data center) to the public or private cloud.

Cisco IOS XE 3S Releases and Cisco IOS Release Number Mapping

The Cisco CSR 1000 Series Cloud Services Routers releases correspond to the Cisco IOS XE releases. For example, Cisco IOS XE Release 3.13(0) is the software release for Cisco CSR 1000V Series Cloud Services Routers Release 3.13.0S.

Table 1 lists the mappings between the Cisco IOS XE 3S releases and their associated Cisco IOS releases.

Cisco CSR 1000V Software Licenses

Cisco CSR 1000V software licenses are divided into feature set licenses. Supported feature licenses depend on the release.

The following feature sets are supported in Cisco IOS XE 3.12S and earlier:

  • Standard Package: Basic Networking Routing (Routing, HSRP, NAT, ACL, VRF, GRE)
  • Advanced Package: Standard package + Security features (IP Security VPN, Firewall, MPLS, Multicast, QoS)
  • Premium Package: Standard package + Security features + Advanced Networking features (AppNav, AVC, OTV and LISP)

The following feature sets are supported beginning in Cisco IOS XE 3.12.1S:

  • IPBase: Basic Networking Routing (Routing, HSRP, NAT, ACL, VRF, GRE)

The IPBase package replaces the Standard package.

  • Security: IPBase package + Security features (IP Security VPN, Firewall, MPLS, Multicast, QoS)

The Security package replaces the Advanced package.

  • AX: IPBase package + Security features + Advanced Networking features (AppNav, AVC, OTV and LISP)

The AX package replaces the Premium package.


Note Cisco recommends using the IPBase, Security, or AX technology packages for compatibility with future releases. All technology packages support the same throughput maximums as the similar feature sets in earlier releases.


The following feature set is supported beginning with Cisco IOS XE 3.13S:

  • APPX Package: IPBase package + Advanced Networking features - Security features (IP security features not supported)

For more information about the Cisco IOS XE technologies supported in the feature set packages, see the overview chapter of the Cisco CSR 1000V Cloud Services Router Software Configuration Guide.

The Cisco CSR 1000V router provides both perpetual licenses and term subscription licenses that support the feature set packages for the following maximum throughput levels:

  • 10 Mbps
  • 50 Mbps
  • 100 Mbps
  • 250 Mbps
  • 500 Mbps
  • 1 Gbps
  • 2.5 Gbps
  • 5 Gbps
  • 10 Gbps

Throughput levels are supported for different feature set packages in each version. For more information about how the maximum throughput levels are regulated on the router, see the Cisco CSR 1000V Cloud Services Router Software Configuration Guide.

Beginning with Cisco IOS XE 3.11S, a memory upgrade license is available to add memory to the Cisco CSR 1000V. This license is available only for selected technology packages.

Evaluation licenses are available depending on the release:

  • (Cisco IOS XE 3.12S and earlier) Evaluation licenses valid for 60 days are bundled with the software image.

The evaluation license is for the Premium technology package, although you can use the license boot-level command to change to either the Standard or Advanced package level.

  • (Cisco IOS XE 3.13S and later) Evaluation licenses valid for 60 days are available at the Cisco Software Licensing (CSL) portal. The following evaluation licenses are available:

AX technology package license with 50 Mbps maximum throughput

APPX technology package license with higher throughput

You can use the license boot-level command to change to either the IPBase or Security package level for the evaluation license.

Table 3 lists the Cisco CSR 1000V license SKUs.

  • Note that the maximum throughput levels are based on performance using VMware ESXi. The maximum throughput may be lower if using Citrix XenServer, Microsoft Hyper-V, or a KVM-based hypervisor.
  • The server resource requirements for virtual CPU configuration and RAM allocation depend on the throughput license and technology package installed. For more information, see the Cisco CSR 1000V data sheet for your release.

NoteLicense SKUs shown in bold are available only through a service representative.

Limitations and Restrictions in Cisco CSR 1000V Series Cloud Services Routers

Limitations and Restrictions in Cisco IOS XE 3.12S

This section lists limitations and restrictions on the Cisco CSR 1000V Series Cloud Services Router in Cisco IOS XE 3.12S.

  • Microsoft Hyper-V has issues with tagged packets, so VLAN (dot1Q and QinQ) will not work on Microsoft Hyper-V.
  • When the Cisco CSR 1000V is installed on Microsoft Hyper-V, the interface numbers can change after Microsoft Hyper-V fails over to a new server, or restarts after a live migration.

If the server is set to perform ungraceful failover, there is no workaround.

If the server is set to perform graceful failover or restart, enter the clear platform software vnic-if nvtable command before executing the failover or restart.

This issue is not seen if the maximum number of interfaces is configured.

  • On Citrix XenServer 6.1, the paravirtual drivers for the CSR 1000V will not work without a certain
    for the XenServer host. This is detrimental to performance. Use the following hot-fix to make sure
    that the VM loads with the proper paravirtual networking drivers:

http://support.citrix.com/article/CTX137843

Verify that the proper drivers are installed using the following command:
show platform software vnic-if interface-mapping

The driver listed should be vif if the correct drivers are in use.

Limitations and Restrictions in Cisco IOS XE 3.10S

This section lists limitations and restrictions on the Cisco CSR 1000V Series Cloud Services Router in Cisco IOS XE 3.10S.

  • Configuring Network Based Application Recognition (NBAR), or Application Visibility and Control (AVC) support on the Cisco CSR 1000V requires a minimum of 4GB DRAM on the VM, even when using the 1 vCPU configuration on the VM.
  • On the Cisco CSR 1000V, all the NICs are logically named as the Gigabit Ethernet interface. The Cisco CSR 1000V does support the 10G IXGBE vNIC in passthrough mode; but that interface also is also logically named as a Gigabit Ethernet interface. Note that with emulated devices like VMXNET3/PV/VIRTIO from the hypervisor, the Cisco CSR 1000V is not aware of the underlying interfaces. The vSwitch may be connected to a 10 GB physical NIC or 1 GB physical NICs or multiple NICs (with NIC teaming on the hypervisor) as well.
  • The following limitations have been observed on the Cisco CSR 1000V with the 1 vCPU configuration with 2.5 GB of RAM allocation on VMware ESXi:

If the memory Hot-Add option is enabled, and the Cisco CSR 1000V is powered on with 2.5GB initial memory, then the RAM allocation can only increase to a maximum of 3 GB. The system does not allow upgrading to more than 3GB of RAM allocation. The Virtual Machine Properties windows shows “Maximum Hot-Add Memory for this Power is 3 GB”.

If the Cisco CSR 1000V is powered on with 3GB initial RAM allocation, then the Hot-Add memory option doesn't work, and the option to select memory remains greyed out with the same message on the Properties windows, “Maximum Hot-Add Memory for this Power is 3 GB”.

If the Cisco CSR 1000V is powered up with 4GB initial RAM allocation, then the Hot-Add option works and you are able to add up to 64 GB of memory.

Limitations and Restrictions in Cisco IOS XE 3.9S

This section lists limitations and restrictions on the Cisco CSR 1000V Series Cloud Services Router.

  • You may experience low virtual network I/O performance with an Intel 1 Gbps NIC using the igb driver. Cisco recommends that you use a 10 Gb NIC for higher throughput applications. For more information, see the VMware document at the following location and apply the settings:

http://kb.vmware.com/selfservice/microsites/search.do?language=en_US&cmd=displayKC&externalId=2018891

  • The ESXi host power management policy should be set to High Performance. If this power management policy is not set, the Cisco CSR 1000V VM will crash due to the High Availability stuck thread detection not seeing the core running the data plane/ppe run for an extended period of time.

New Cisco IOS XE Software Features in Cisco IOS XE 3.10S

This section describes new features in Cisco IOS XE 3.10S that are supported on the Cisco CSR 1000V Series Cloud Services Router and on other platforms.

New Cisco IOS XE Software Feature in Cisco IOS XE 3.10.2S

The following feature has been updated in the Cisco IOS XE 3.10.2 release.

  • Dropping TCP Packets During Router Reboot Process in AppNav Controller Group Scenario

For AppNav Controller Group (ACG) scenarios, a new CLI ( service-insertion acg-reload-delay ) provides a time delay before enabling WAN traffic for a router that has just rebooted. During the delay, the router drops all TCP packets passing through the WAN interface. This enables the router to synchronize flows before traffic is enabled, preventing unintended resetting of connections.

For detailed information, see the following Cisco document:

Resolved Caveats—Cisco IOS XE Release 3.13.0S

  • CSCuf51357

Symptom: A vulnerability in the Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) VPN subsystem of Cisco IOS Software could allow an unauthenticated, remote attacker to cause a denial of service (DoS) condition.

The vulnerability is due to a failure to process certain types of HTTP requests. To exploit the vulnerability, an attacker could submit crafted requests designed to consume memory to an affected device. An exploit could allow the attacker to consume and fragment memory on the affected device. This may cause reduced performance, a failure of certain processes, or a restart of the affected device.

Cisco has released free software updates that address these vulnerabilities.

There are no workarounds to mitigate this vulnerability.

This advisory is available at the following link:

Additional information on Cisco's security vulnerability policy can be found at the following URL:

http://www.cisco.com/en/US/products/products_security_vulnerability_policy.html

  • CSCum22661

Symptom: When a Peer sends a certificate with no CDP, the IOS PKI client will try to retrieve the CRL through SCEP [GetCRL] directed to CA, based on enrollment url value, however in case of enrollment profile [with a valid enrollment url], it complains that the enrollment url is not present.

Conditions: IOS PKI Client configured with an Enrollment profile, which has enrollment url and authentication url to communicate with the CA using SCEP.

Workaround:

a) configure the enrollment URL under the trustpoint directly instead of using it through enrollment profile

or

b) configure the CA to embed a CDP in the client certificates [an HTTP Server or SCEP URL]. Peer will need to be reenrolled afresh.

SCEP URL looks like:

crypto pki server IOS-CA

cdp-url http://10.106.72.139/cgi-bin/pkiclient.exe?operation=GetCRL

[Note: Before typing in ? next to pkiclient.exe in the URL above, type Ctrl+V]

  • CSCum23619

Symptom: No counter to show the ATM VC IFM call out and response

Conditions: ATM VC IFM call

Workaround: N/A

  • CSCum29065

Symptom: Group override does not take effect for interface-config strings. Actual ordering of interface config strings on cloned V-Access does not correspond to the expected order based on AAA settings in IKEv2 profile.

Conditions: User & group authorization configured in IKEv2 profile.

Workaround: Move all config-string attributes to a single authorization source (user or group).

  • CSCum34515

Symptom: QFP crash

Conditions: SIP ALG traffic with FW and NAT

Workaround: None.

  • CSCum34624

Symptom: IOSd crash when show platform condition after remove the corresponding interface

Conditions: With "debug platform software cond-debug verbose" enabled, and after delete the interface show platform condition will trigger this crash.

Workaround: N/A

  • CSCum40043

Symptom: Crypto sessions get stuck in UP-IDLE state in scale scenario on a Cisco CSR platform.

Conditions: This symptom occurs on a Cisco CSR platform in Cisco IOS XE Release 3.11.

Workaround: Bring the sessions up in very small increments, for example, 40 sessions at a time initially and keep monitoring. When the sessions stop coming up for 40 sessions at a time, switch to a smaller number like 20.

  • CSCum43752

Symptom: IOSD crash at ipv6_intf_mtu on flexvpn client

Conditions: Flapping flexvpn client configured with ipv6 on tunnel interface.

Workaround: None.

  • CSCun04952

Symptom: Traffic which needs to be send between appnav-controllers will get lost.

Received inter-appnav-controller packets will get assigned to the shutdown tunnel interface.

As a result, no flows will be synchronized between this appnav-controller and appnav-controllers in the same appnav-controller-group. Asymmetrically routed packet will also fail due to lack of flow and unable to query flow from other appnav-controller.

Conditions: Having a shutdown tunnel interface configured with tunnel source equals to the local appnav-controller IP and tunnel destination equals to the IP of another appnav-controller in the appnav-controller-group (i.e. another ASR router).

To detect this problem the following counter will go up for every dropped packet:

show platform hardware qfp active statistics drop | i Disabled

alternatively you can use a packet-trace feature on 3.10.2 and above to check for the dropped reply getting send to the shutdown tunnel interface.

Workaround: Remove the shutdown tunnel from configuration or un-shutdown it.

Further Problem Description: The received packet shares the same source and destination IP of an existing GRE tunnel before matching AppNav tunnel. And since the tunnel interface is disabled, the packet is dropped before reaching AppNav's handler.

  • CSCun31021

Symptom: A vulnerability in IKE module of Cisco IOS and Cisco IOS XE could allow an unauthenticated, remote attacker to affect already established Security Associations (SA). The vulnerability is due to a wrong handling of rogue IKE Main Mode packets. An attacker could exploit this vulnerability by sending a crafted Main Mode packet to an affected device. An exploit could allow the attacker to cause dropping of valid, established IKE Security Associations on an affected device.

Conditions: Device configured to process IKE request that already has a number of established security associations.

Workaround: None.

PSIRT Evaluation: The Cisco PSIRT has assigned this bug the following CVSS version 2 score. The Base and Temporal CVSS scores as of the time of evaluation are 4.3/3.6:

https://intellishield.cisco.com/security/alertmanager/cvssCalculator.do?dispatch=1&version=2&vector=AV:N/AC:M/Au:N/C:N/I:N/A:P/E:F/RL:OF/RC:C

CVE ID CVE-2014-2143 has been assigned to document this issue. Additional details about the vulnerability described here can be found at: http://tools.cisco.com/security/center/content/CiscoSecurityNotice/CVE-2014-2143

Additional information on Cisco's security vulnerability policy can be found at the following URL: http://www.cisco.com/en/US/products/products_security_vulnerability_policy.html

  • CSCun32757

Symptom: Debug platform condition matches traffic that is not included in the condition.

Conditions: Use of packet tracer / conditional debugger.

Workaround: Clear platform condition all and re enable.

  • CSCun36235

Symptom: Sometimes an error log is seen when tracing packets with 'debug platform packet-trace' or some of the data seems inconsistent.

Conditions: Tracing multicast packets with packet-trace in IOS-XE 3.11.0 or IOS-XE3.12.0 using circular buffering:

debug platform packet-trace <num-pkts> circular

or using drop tracing:

debug platform packet-trace drop [code <code-num>]

Workaround: Avoid the commands above when using.

  • CSCun68542

Symptom: CSR1000V router running XE3.11 (15.4(1)S) working as Route Reflector. The route-reflector is advertising prefixes with incorrect subnet masks to ibgp peers and route-reflector clients. The incorrect prefixes are not present in the bgp table of the route-reflector itself, however they do get installed in the bgp table of the router receiving the update.

Conditions: This symptom is observed when BGP route reflector uses the additional paths feature.

Workaround: Disable additional path feature either globally under address-family or per neighbor.

  • CSCun83348

Symptom: IPsec configured router sees unauthenticated router in INIT stage of ospfv3

Conditions: Configure one router with ospfv3 auth and other router with no authentication

Workaround: None.

  • CSCuo72301

Symptom: Crash occurs when IKEv2 attempts to clean up its contexts when it times-out waiting for received Certificate to be Validated by PKI component.

Conditions: Authentication with certificates and PKI component's response to certificate validation is delayed.

Workaround: There is no workaround.

  • CSCuo75582

Symptom: Content sensitive help from CLI lists only three protocols instead of the full list. This is valid for securityk9 license when configuring class map:

class-map type inspect

match protocol ?

Conditions: Tested on 4451-X , could be also happening on ASR1K

Workaround: Use appx license instead of securityk9

  • CSCuo75681

Symptom: RP crash due to %SYS-2-CHUNKBADMAGIC in checkheaps in chunk MallocLite

Conditions: Not known.

Workaround: Not known.

  • CSCuo77574

Symptom: An error is seen while enabling "auto negotiation".

Conditions: This symptom is observed when "auto negotiation" is configured on an interface.

Workaround: There is no workaround.

  • CSCuo79718

Symptom:

1) "crypto isakmp aggressive-mode disable" is in "show run all" by default.

In spite of the disable command, IKE aggressive mode is enabled by default.

2) The command remains in "show run all" output.

"no crypto isakmp aggressive-mode disable" command cannot remove it from "show run all", and that change ("no" form) does not show up in "show run" output.

The command works properly if it is configured explicitly.

Conditions: Cisco IOS 15.1 or later

Workaround:

- See "show run" output to check if this feature is disabled or not.

- To disable IKE aggressive mode, set "crypto isakmp aggressive-mode disable" explicitly.

  • CSCuo82943

Symptom: SADB Peer Chunk leak seen.

Conditions: DmVPN Hub with 2000 simulated spokes in stress/scale scenario.

Workaround: Unknown

  • CSCuo96504

Symptom: A FlexVPN client router may report alignment errors and experience high cpu utilization in IKEv2 FlexVPN process.

Conditions: The tunnel interface in use with the FlexVPN client configuration must flap while the client is processing an IKEv2 redirect. The high cpu utilization is seen only if the client is configured to auto connect.

Workaround: Remove and reconfigure the IKEv2 client configuration block.

  • CSCuo86953

Symptom: A Cisco router or switch may crash when issuing the show logging command.

Conditions: Open one session to the device and issue show logging. Let the output of the show logging command sit at the more prompt in the Trap logging session. While changing the logging host commands in a different session resume the output of the show logging command. There is a chance that both actions at the same time will make the device crash.

Workaround: Do not make changes to the logging host command while the show logging command output is still outstanding.

  • CSCup07089

Symptom: FlexVPN - IKEv2 authorization policy config gets deleted after reboot under some conditions.

Conditions: If route set interface is configured for loopback interface

Workaround: None.

Conditions:This issue occurred after a switchover from Active RP to Standby RP was done. The device had 1000 PPPoA sessions on the device. Call Admission Control (CAC) is also configured.

Workaround:Remove the CAC configurations. For example, the following would have to be removed:

call admission new-model

call admission limit 1000

call admission cpu-limit 80

  • CSCup22022

Symptom: ASR using ZBFW may not properly classify traffic when class-maps of type inspect reference an ACL that uses a service-type object-group.

Conditions: A sample configuration that does not work:

object-group service ICMP_OG

icmp echo

icmp echo-reply

icmp traceroute

icmp unreachable

icmp time-exceeded

!

ip access-list extended ICMP_ACL

permit object-group ICMP_OG any any

!

class-map type inspect match-all ICMP_CMAP

match protocol icmp

match access-group name ICMP_ACL

!

policy-map type inspect ICMP_PMAP

class type inspect ICMP_CMAP

inspect

class class-default

!

zone-pair security INSIDE2OUTSIDE source INSIDE destination OUTSIDE

service-policy type inspect ICMP_PMAP

Workaround: Applying the ACL to the interface, then reapplying it to the class-map sometimes resolves the issue. Once the issue is resolved, reloading the ASA will cause the original classification problem to reoccur.

Open Caveats—Cisco IOS XE Release 3.13.0S

  • CSCuo17906

Symptom: The CLI show the overlap ip in its configuration but when using the GUI to admin down/up the interface, it will resulting "failed-to-apply".

Conditions: When apply overlapping ip address between gigabitEthernet and tunnel interface

Workaround: None.

  • CSCuo41750

Symptom: When Gig1 is configured on CSR and it is also used as the management ip, if we try to configure sub-interface Gig1.1, it gets configured as "native" by default( even without using the keyword "native"):-

Router(config)#int gig1.1
Router(config-subif)#encapsulation dot1Q 1
Router(config-subif)#
 

At this point, the telnet session is lost and so is the connectivity with PNSC. When logging in using Vsphere and checking the config, it shows gig1.1 is configured as the native sub-interface. As follows:

interface GigabitEthernet1.1
encapsulation dot1Q 1 native
 

Conditions: Configure Gig1.1 when Gig1 is configured

Workaround: None.

  • CSCuj80245

Symptom: No address prefix flow records get reported when packets get fragmented at Tunnel interface, which has enabled with AVC flow monitor.

Conditions: May occur when packet are fragmented due the maximum packet length limit, called the Maximum Transmission Unit (MTU). When packet size is bigger than the interface MTU, the packet will be fragmented and will not be monitored by AVC.

Workaround: Increase the size of the MTU to accommodate larger packets. For example, configure an MTU of 3000 bytes with the following CLI: Device(config)# interface Gig0/2/1 Device(config-if)# mtu 3000 Further Problem Description: The issue may occur when UDP traffic becomes fragmented over a DMVPN tunnel interface due to a default maximum packet size (MTU) of 1500 bytes.

  • CSCul01335

Symptom: FP may crash.

Conditions: on changing pap limit from 30 to 60 ith traffic on

Workaround: None

  • CSCul29918

Symptom: A vulnerability in IPSec tunnel implementation of Cisco IOS Software could allow an unauthenticated, remote attacker to change the tunnel MTU or path MTU and potentially cause IPSec tunnel to drop.

The vulnerability is due to incorrect processing of certain ICMP packets. An attacker could exploit this vulnerability by sending specific ICMP packets to an affected device in order to change the configured MTU value of the tunnel interface. An exploit could allow the attacker to change the tunnel MTU or path MTU and potentially cause IPSec tunnel to drop.

Conditions: A device configured for IPSec VTI and with path-mtu-discovery disabled.

Workaround: Issue is caused by ICMP unreachables. Blocking ICMP is a workaround.

  • CSCum96156

Symptom: IOS will fail to match the certificate map intermittently.

Conditions: IOS PKI using certificate maps, to authorize the Peer certificates or override CDP. In this case: - if a certificate map is written on a PC, with upper case letters in them: Ex: crypto pki certificate map HR-Users 10 subject-name co ou = HR-Users - and this is a part of the configuration that is merged with the running config through IOS file-system [directly from flash or FTP/TFTP/HTTP etc], IOS retains the upper case letters. [contrary to certificate maps written through CLI, always converts everything to lower case letters] .

Workaround: A) - copy the certificate maps [that have upper case letters in them] to a notepad - remove the certificate maps [that have upper case letters in them] - paste the certificate maps, through IOS CLI - wherever these cert maps were being called, they will stay intact, and this change will take effect immediately or B) - The certificate map needs to enter IOS in a manner that IOS would insert it if you were to enter it in a CLI I.e. Make sure the external config generators generate the certificate map in such a way that everything is in lower case, and it has white spaces between DN OID, '=' and the value.

  • CSCun04952

Symptom: Traffic which needs to be send between appnav-controllers will get lost. Received inter-appnav-controller packets will get assigned to the shutdown tunnel interface. As a result, no flows will be synchronized between this appnav-controller and appnav-controllers in the same appnav-controller-group. Asymmetrically routed packet will also fail due to lack of flow and unable to query flow from other appnav-controller.

Conditions: Having a shutdown tunnel interface configured with tunnel source equals to the local appnav-controller IP and tunnel destination equals to the IP of another appnav-controller in the appnav-controller-group (i.e. another ASR router). To detect this problem the following counter will go up for every dropped packet: show platform hardware qfp active statistics drop | i Disabled alternatively you can use a packet-trace feature on 3.10.2 and above to check for the dropped reply getting send to the shutdown tunnel interface.

Workaround: Remove the shutdown tunnel from configuration or un-shutdown it.

Further Problem Description: The received packet shares the same source and destination IP of an existing GRE tunnel before matching AppNav tunnel. And since the tunnel interface is disabled, the packet is dropped before reaching AppNav's handler.

  • CSCun09973

Symptom:

A vulnerability in the Layer 2 Tunneling Protocol (L2TP) module of Cisco IOS XE on Cisco ASR 1000 Series Routers could allow an authenticated, remote attacker to cause a reload of the processing ESP card.

Conditions: Generate ICMP ECHREQ from the router to outside host over an MLP causes the bundle queuing process with a consequences of WRED malfunction and member links queue growth beyond the set queue-limits.

Workaround: None.

  • CSCun39803

Symptom: Intermittent connectivity loss between hosts at different OTV sites. Pinging from one host to the other more than 8 times restores connectivity for about 8-10 minutes. Packet captures show ARP request broadcasts from a host at one site not being received by the host at the other site for about 7-8s, and then suddenly starting to work. This problem has a tendency to get worse over time, with more and more hosts being affected over the course of a week or two until connectivity between sites is essentially gone.

Conditions: ASR1K running 15.4 or 15.3 code, possibly earlier code, with OTV configured.

Workaround: None on the ASR thus far. Statically configuring ARP entries on the hosts will work.

  • CSCun48994

Symptom: The CP process crashes while collapsing a hierarchy layer node that had once exceeded 4000 entries. The collapse occurs when the number entries falls below 4000.

Conditions: This problem occurs while collapsing a node that had once exceeded 400 entries. The problem is specific to MLPPP, MFR and GEC aggregate because these features require notification when a schedule ID changes. The schedule ID changes when a scheduling node is reconstructed. The issue hit when the operation involves both the flushing and SID notification.

Workaround: None.

  • CSCun55310

Symptom: An ATM-port might show input-errors of type overrun. Conditions: They get counted so, because they hit an on-demand AutoVC, where the nature of the packets (for example ILMI or BPDU) should not raise the VC.

Workaround: The concerning VC could be configured as permanent or the packets should be prevented on neighbor device as it is seen as unwanted or unexpected traffic.

Further Problem Description: Counting the packets as errors is correct, but counting them as overruns is misleading.

  • CSCun57531

Symptom: Ucode Crash on CSR1000V.

Conditions: An initialization race condition may cause the CSR1000V to not align some memory correctly, which will result in a ucode crash.

Further Problem Description: Problem is very difficult to reproduce as probability of hitting the issue is less than 0.1%.

  • CSCuo02894

Symptom: Packet-trace statistics sometimes appear to report out-of-sync counts.

Conditions: Using packet-trace in IOS-XE3.11.

Workaround: None.

  • CSCuo16280

Symptom: Router might crash at the traceback as mentioned in description of ddts

Conditions: This crash can be simulated only with wrong config as it is being done in this case. Wrong config part1: Spoke has an active crypto map based session terminating on DVTI headend. Spoke now tries to bring up dmvpn tunnel (with same 6 tuple info) with same headend. So when shut/noshut is issued for dmvpn tunnel, spoke initiates CHILD_IPSEC_SA request instead of new session request. So when headend gets this child_sa_request proposal, ike forwards the proposal to IPSEC for proposal validation. Ipsec must have rejected the proposal with "no_proposal_chosen/ts_unacceptable" reason (because protocol is 47 for dmvpn and is different from dvti based session which is ?ip?) instead of rejecting it with "invalid KE" reason. Because IKE got unexpected INVALID_KE error from IPSEC (which it should have never got), there is a condition failing in IKE code resulting in crash!! Wrong config part2: Overlapping ikev2 profiles on headend. Which causes dmvpn tunnel also fall on "dvti" based ike profile, resulting in IPSEC proposal validation failure.

Workaround: Correct the configuration

  • CSCuj28057

Symptom: Crash alert group is not subscribed in Cisco TAC profile.

Conditions: Call-home default configuration.

Workaround: Create user profile to subscribe crash alert group.

  • CSCuj42597

Symptom: The following firewall policy is attached to the firewall zone-pair to allow http transactions:

class-map type inspect match-all http-servers
match protocol http
!
policy-map type inspect fw-policy
class type inspect http-servers
inspect
class class-default
drop log
 

The policy would cause lots of TCP out-of-order segment drops for HTTP flows, especially with long HTTP transactions which require multiple segments to complete the transaction (such as downloading large file from HTTP server); the TCP out-of-order segment drops cause lots of retransmissions, lowering the throughput and at times even causing the request to fail:

csr01#sh platform hardware qfp active feature firewall drop -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Drop Reason Packets
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
TCP out-of-order segment 6500
Stray Segment 9
 

Replacing the class-map with the following using ACL to match HTTP port does not stop the TCP out-of-order segment drops for HTTP flows:

ip access-list extended http-port
permit tcp any any eq www
!
class-map type inspect match-all http-servers
match access-group name http-port
 

Conditions: Filtering HTTP flows.

Workaround: Replace the 'match protocol http' statement with a ACL match statement, and a 'match protocol tcp' statement in the class-map like below:

ip access-list extended http-port
permit tcp any any eq www
!
class-map type inspect match-all http-servers
match access-group name http-port
match protocol tcp
 
  • CSCuj47897

Symptom: The inspect class-map is a nested class-map, with one 'match class-map ...' statement already configured. IOSd crash when the 'no match class-map ...' command is entered (e.g., typo error):

csr(config)#class-map type inspect parent
csr(config-cmap)#match class-map child
csr(config-cmap)#no match class-map non-exist

The crash only happens for inspect class-map, performing the same operation with regular class-map does not cause IOSd crash.

Conditions: Removing non-exist 'match class-map ...' statement from nested inspect class-map.

Workaround: Make sure no typo when removing 'match class-map ...' statement from nested inspect class-map; or remove the nested class-map and reconfigure with the correct statements.

Symptom: CSR1K may experience drops.

Conditions: Communication between hosts through CSR on the same ESXi host - LRO and TSO enabled.

Workaround: Disable LRO and TSO:

1) On the host ESXi we disable LRO and TSO using this procedure:

Log in to the ESXi host or vCenter Server by using the vSphere Client.

Navigate to the host in the inventory tree, and on the Configuration tab click Advanced Settings under Software.

Select Net and scroll down until you reach parameters starting with VMXNET.

Set the following LRO parameters from 1 to 0:

netSwLROSL
Net.Vmxnet3SwLRO
Net.Vmxnet3HwLRO
Net.Vmxnet2SwLRO
Net.Vmxnet2HwLRO
Net.UseHwTSO
 

Reboot the ESXi/ESX host to apply the changes.

2) On the end hosts disable LRO and TSO : ethtool -K eth0 tso off ethtool -K eth0 lro off to check if they are disabled: ethtool -k eth0 | grep offload

Open Caveats—Cisco IOS XE Release 3.12.0S

  • CSCul97435

Symptom: Hyper-V Vswitch GUI only allows creation of one VLAN. In addition after the vSwitch GUI is used to create a VLAN it is not possible to send traffic from CSR1000v to a peer using subinterfaces. - Hyper-V vSwitch blocks traffic from mac-addresses that it did not assign. This causes protocols that assign there own mac-addresses to fail. (ex: HSRP, CLNS, EtherChannel).

Conditions: Problems are observed on CSR1000v running on Hyper-V hypervisor.

Workaround: No known workarounds.

  • CSCum66856

Symptom: CSR1000: DMVPN stuck in nhrp with “crypto ikev2 cts “ cli

  • CSCum95132

Symptom: Kernel crashes occur while executing RFC2544 traffic tests.

Conditions: Longevity testing starting with packet size of 78 bytes to 1483 bytes utilizing incremental step size of 64 bytes. Typically, the crash occurs after 3-4 iterations of this pattern (1 million packets sent per each packet size).

Workaround: CPU Affinity (pinning) to KVM process and VHOST process, and utilizing the latest 3.12 images (2/12 and later) thus far has shown this issue to stop.

Resolved Caveats—Cisco IOS XE Release 3.11.2S

  • CSCtq21722

Symptom: Cisco switch may reload when configured for SNMP.

Conditions: This symptom is observed when SNMP inform host are configured.

Workaround: Remove the SNMP host configurations for SNMP informs. eg: no snmp-server host x.x.x.x informs version 2c <removed>

  • CSCtz45833

Symptom: Router crash: UNIX-EXT-SIGNAL: Segmentation fault(11), Process = MPLS TE LM

Conditions: Router is acting as a mid point for MPLS-TE tunnels and is doing ERO expansion. In the case the ERO expansion fails (due to IGP race conditions, or inter-AS scenario) and backup tunnels are in use (for MPLS-TE FRR feature) the router may crash.

Workaround: Configure the head-ends to perform full ERO computation to avoid having the mid points do any ERO expansion. This can be done using 'dynamic' path option, or using explicit path that specifies strict hops for each node along the desired LSP path. (Using 'loose' hops, or partial strict hops can lead to issue).

  • CSCuc21859

Symptom: Memory leak is seen at ssf_owner_get_feature_sb.

Conditions: This symptom occurs when the discriminator configuration is with logging, as given in the below examples: logging discriminator <NAME> logging host x.x.x.x discriminator DEBUG logging discriminator SysLog mnemonics drops NAME.

Workaround: Remove the discriminator configuration from the logging configuration.

  • CSCue23898

Symptom: A Cisco router running Cisco IOS Release 15.3(1)T may crash with a bus error immediately after issuing the 'write memory' command. Example: 14:44:33 CST Thu Feb 14 2013: TLB (load or instruction fetch) exception, CPU signal 10, PC = 0x228B2C70 \.

Conditions: This symptom occurs while updating the router's running configuration with the 'write memory' command. It has been seen while updating various different commands such as, those under 'call-manager-fallback' ip route statements interface sub-commands.

Workaround: There is no workaround.

  • CSCuh06074

Symptom: Unnecessary Retransmissions going on in HA mode.

Conditions: When LDP NSR is enabled on any or all test units.

  • CSCuj13596

Symptom: Issuing a command crypto key move rsa aaa non-exportable" throws an error, Failed to move keypair aaa to device.

Conditions: Before issuing the above command, generate the rsa keys with label 'aaa'.

Workaround: None.

  • CSCuj66318

Symptom: After applying an NTP access-group to deny inbound NTP queries, a device still responds to NTP queries as if the ACL was not configured. It will affect IOS-XE too.

Conditions: An NTP access-group must be configured to deny inbound NTP queries.

================ access-list 99 deny any ! ntp access-group query-only 99 ============
 

In the example shown, even though all inbound NTP queries should be denied, we will still process them as if the access-group was not configured

Workaround: Use NTP authentication instead of NTP access-groups to restrict NTP hosts.

More Info: After applying an NTP ACL access-group serve-only to permit inbound NTP client request - the correct ntp client association is established only in case that NTP authentication is applied.

  • CSCuj88820

Symptom: Router acting as a PKI client continues auto-enrollment to its CA even after the CA certificate has expired.

Conditions: Client router is configured with 'auto-enroll' under its trustpoint.

Workaround: Remove 'auto-enroll' from the trustpoint on the PKI client router, or, Delete the trustpoint in question on the PKI client router.

Further Problem Description: Consider a scenario where a PKI client has failed to auto renew its identity certificate i.e. it failed to re-enroll with its CA for some reason. The client router is expected to retry until one of the conditions below is reached: 1. "enrollment retry count" which is configured under the trustpoint is reached or, 2. CA certificate expires. However, it is seen the client router will continuously attempt to auto renew its identity certificate even after the CA certificate has expired.

  • CSCul01067

Symptom: Memory leak occurs in process and I/O memory.

Conditions: This symptom is observed when NTPv6 is configured, for example; "ntp server ipv6 2001::1"

Workaround: Remove the NTPv6 configuration.

  • CSCul18872

Symptom: An LDP session to a Juniper peer flaps when RP switchover occurs with mpls ldp nsr configured on a Cisco router running IOS.

Conditions: This symptom is observed when an mpls LDP session is established with a Juniper peer and RP switchover occurs with mpls ldp nsr configured.

Workaround: In order to workaround the traffic loss which occurs when the session flaps, configure mpls ldp graceful-restart in addition to nsr.

  • CSCul90667

Symptom: Error message and traceback are printed to console. Conditions: IGP times out while Standby RP is becoming NSR Active.

Workaround: Enable NSR under the IGP to ensure no timeout occurs.

  • CSCum19875

Symptom: PW status change messages, XCONNECT-5-PW_STATUS, are not all captured in log when PW status change logging is enabled.

Conditions: XCONNECT-5-PW_STATUS messages were rate-limited to 8 messages per 8 msec. For example, if 10 PWs changed state together via interface down then 8 messages would be logged and the remaining would be lost.

Workaround: No workaround.

  • CSCum48928

Symptom: XML Bootstrap configuration for the CSR1000V containing the configuration commands "service internal" and "license accept end user agreement force" is not successfully applied, as the "license ..." command is always issued before the "service internal" command, regardless of which command comes first in the XML file.

Conditions: Only happens on CSR1000V and only happens when the bootstrap configuration commands are provided in XML (ovf-env.xml) format.

Workaround: Provide plain-text bootstrap configuration file (iosxe_config.txt) instead.

Further Problem Description: Cisco Virtual Appliance Configuration (CVAC) subsystem in IOSd attempts to fix up the order of XML configuration commands by moving all "license" commands to the head of the list. However, "license accept end user agreement force" is only a valid command after "service internal" has been configured, so this re-ordering causes the command to be rejected.

  • CSCun45272

Symptom: [1] Standby RP will have out-of-sync entries. - with MPLS-TE NSR enabled, the standby RP will have out-of-sync entries, which will result in flapping of the path-protected LSP of the tunnel after an SSO. [2] Leaking an LSP - A third LSP will be signaled, and leaked (meaning, there is no management of the LSP). There are supposed to be two LSPs at steady state (primary and path protected), but with this defect, there will be (primary, path protected, and leaked LSP). This will continue to grow as failures occur on the tunnel.

Conditions: A reoptimization of a tunnel that has failed with path protection enabled.

Workaround: There is no workaround.

  • CSCun49450

Symptom: CSR1000V may lose the configuration when performing a password recovery.

Conditions: Configuration is ignored by changing the configuration register to 0x40, and the system is booted in an effort to recover from a lost password.

Workaround: Restore the configuration from a backup copy.

  • CSCun63294

Symptom: TCP connections into/out of applications running in virtual service containers can stall and never revive. This can be seen by trying to scp a large file into a container, and also for any TCP connection (e.g. Thrift) out from the container.

Conditions: Any large file transfer over TCP or long lived TCP connection with reasonable traffic bandwidth/total.

Workaround: None known. More Info: Transferring of small files, or short lived TCP connections do not seem to be affected. Non-TCP protocols (e.g. UDP) do not seem to be affected.

  • CSCun73782

Symptom: A vulnerability in LISP control messages processing on Cisco IOS and Cisco IOS XE could allow an unauthenticated, remote attacker to cause a vulnerable device to disable CEF forwarding and eventually drop traffic passing through.

The vulnerability is due to insufficient checking of certain parameters in LISP control messages on ITR. An attacker could exploit this vulnerability by sending malformed LISP control messages to ITR. An exploit could allow the attacker to cause a vulnerable device to disable CEF forwarding and eventually drop traffic passing through.

Conditions: Malformed messages can only be generated by a device that is already registered to a LISP system: a valid ETR or ALT.

Workaround: None.

(1) Use an interface other than the management interface to download the file or use a protocol that does not use TCP as the session transport such as TFTP.

(2) Set the IP_ADDRESS rommon variable to the IP address of the management interface.

  • CSCum04973

Symptom: CSR1000V may experience drops.

Conditions: Communication between hosts through CSR on the same ESXi host - LRO and TSO enabled.

Workaround: Disable LRO and TSO:

1) On the host ESXi we disable LRO and TSO using this procedure:

Log in to the ESXi host or vCenter Server by using the vSphere Client.

Navigate to the host in the inventory tree, and on the Configuration tab click Advanced Settings under Software.

Select Net and scroll down until you reach parameters starting with VMXNET.

Set the following LRO parameters from 1 to 0:

netSwLROSL
Net.Vmxnet3SwLRO
Net.Vmxnet3HwLRO
Net.Vmxnet2SwLRO
Net.Vmxnet2HwLRO
Net.UseHwTSO
 

Reboot the ESXi/ESX host to apply the changes.

2) On the end hosts disable LRO and TSO : ethtool -K eth0 tso off ethtool -K eth0 lro off to check if they are disabled: ethtool -k eth0 | grep offload

  • CSCto07376

Symptom: The device reload when we grant certificates. crypto pki server <> grant all.

Conditions: Configured for crypto.

Workaround: None.

  • CSCua73834

Symptom: IOS CA issues incorrect rollover identity certificates to its clients; the rollover certificates issued will have an expiry date corresponding to the end-date of the currently active (and soon to expire) CA certificate. Thus, the rollover identity certificate will not be valid after the CA rollover takes place.

Conditions: The issue is seen only if the clients have sent the rollover certificate request via an IOS RA certificate server.

Workaround: None.

  • CSCuh47047

Symptom: An IOS router may fail IKE Main Mode negotiation if the peer device sends both the seconds and kilobytes Life Type with their respective Life Duration attributes.

Conditions: This condition can occur when an IOS router is the responder for an IKE session, and the peer proposes both seconds and kilobytes Life Duration in its SA proposal.

Workaround: The workaround is to remove one of the Life Type attributes from the peer device configuration.

  • CSCui59927

Symptom: Memory Leak observed on the device due to IPSEC causing the free memory to deplete to an extent where box becomes unreachable.

Conditions: IPSEC scaling being high.

Workaround: Reduce Scaling of IPSEC sessions.

  • CSCui39989

Symptom: PKI fails to validate (sub, peer) cert chain received from IKE.

Conditions: - PKI hierarchy: root -> sub -> peer - root and sub locally trusted - IKE profile configured with "ca trust-point sub" only - chain-validation from sub to root

  • CSCuj40010

Symptom: When the primary peer becomes unreachable, the FlexVPN client establishes a tunnel with the backup peer as expected. However, if the primary peer becomes reachable again, the client attempts to build a new tunnel even though it has an existing active tunnel with the backup peer.

Conditions: The Flex client is configured with multiple peers and peer reactivate is not enabled.

Workaround: None.

  • CSCuj74574

Symptom: Router acting as a PKI client fails to delete its expired identity and CA certificates after it has rolled over. So, the output of "show crypto pki certificate" shows that the router has two sets of certificates: One set of identity and CA certificates that is current and valid. Another set of identity and CA certificates that is old and expired. Both sets of certificates are bound to the same trustpoint.

Conditions: The issue is seen primarily when the client router has enrolled to an IOS CA via and IOS RA router.

Workaround: None. The old set of certificates get deleted eventually upon the next certificate renewal process initiated by the client router.

Further Problem Description: An example of what is observed:

  • CSCuj88820

Symptom: Router acting as a PKI client continues auto-enrollment to its CA even after the CA certificate has expired.

Conditions: Client router is configured with 'auto-enroll' under its trustpoint.

Workaround: Remove 'auto-enroll' from the trustpoint on the PKI client router, or, Delete the trustpoint in question on the PKI client router.

Further Problem Description: Consider a scenario where a PKI client has failed to auto renew its identity certificate i.e. it failed to re-enroll with its CA for some reason. The client router is expected to retry until one of the conditions below is reached:

1. "enrollment retry count" which is configured under the trustpoint is reached or,

2. CA certificate expires. However, it is seen the client router will continuously attempt to auto renew its identity certificate even after the CA certificate has expired.

  • CSCuj96893

Symptom: Cisco router hangs and it stopped passing the traffic. Customer needs to reload the router to make it work until it hangs next time. It hangs sometimes once in month.

Conditions: This issue is seen with more than one router.

Workaround: There is no workaround.

  • CSCul05056

Symptom: A Cisco router may crash when configuring NBAR or any other feature which enables NBAR internally. In the crash log file, the crash will be shown as a STACKLOW condition. Examples of this are:

%SYS-6-STACKLOW: Stack for process Config Probe running low, 0/12000 %SYS-6-STACKLOW: Stack for process SSH Process running low, 0/12000 %SYS-6-STACKLOW: Stack for process InitializeNbarAPI running low, 0/12000
 

Conditions: This crash is triggered by enabling NBAR directly or indirectly through another feature. Two such examples are configuring NAT on an interface or configuring NBAR on an interface. For example:

(config)#interface gigabitethernet0/1
(config-if)#ip nbar protocol-discovery
(config)#interface gigabitethernet0/1
(config-if)#ip nat inside
 

The router may not crash depending on how the configuration is done. For example configuring the feature over the console will not cause a crash. Configuring the feature over SSH, through FTP, Smart Install, etc though will cause the crash.

Workaround: A possible workaround may be to configure the feature over the console or through telnet.

  • CSCul13619

Symptom: When incoming ESP packet has as final destination a local interface on the GM itself (including loopback), the packet is recirculated after decryption causing it to be dropped. If the decrypted packet is only a transit one, for example, it is for a host on a connected LAN, all works as expected.

Conditions: This issue occurs due to GETvpn, ipv6 and use of ingress ipv6 access lists.

Workaround: There is no workaround.

  • CSCul40500

Symptom: MD5 is used to sign the PKCS10 embedded in SCEP encrypted message whatever hashing algorithm is configured under the relevant trustpoint or whatever the best hashing algorithm reported by the SCEP GetCACaps message is.

  • CSCum04973

Symptom: CSR1K may experience drops.

Conditions: - communication between hosts through CSR on the same ESXi host - LRO and TSO enabled.

Workaround: disable LRO and TSO: 1) On the host ESXi we disable LRO and TSO using this procedure: Log in to the ESXi host or vCenter Server by using the vSphere Client. Navigate to the host in the inventory tree, and on the Configuration tab click Advanced Settings under Software. Select Net and scroll down until you reach parameters starting with Vmxnet. Set the following LRO parameters from 1 to 0: Net.VmxnetSwLROSL Net.Vmxnet3SwLRO Net.Vmxnet3HwLRO Net.Vmxnet2SwLRO Net.Vmxnet2HwLRO Net.UseHwTSO Reboot the ESXi/ESX host to apply the changes. 2) On the end hosts disable LRO and TSO : ethtool -K eth0 tso off ethtool -K eth0 lro off to check if they are disabled: ethtool -k eth0 | grep offload

  • CSCum08864

Symptom: When there is policy changed ( either KS or GM ) in Pre-PAL, ASR1K used to re-register. The reason is that in TCAM we can't insert or move SA. ACL merge was done in ACE driver, re-registration was triggered from there. Post-PAL, ACL merge intelligence is moved to Control plane, so ACL is changed, it does the change flow priority. The SA is inserted with second priority, ASR1K is not able to handle that.

Conditions: ACL change on the KS or the GM.

Workaround: There are 4 Workaround :

1. Manually clear GetVPN registration on ASR1K using "clear crypto gdoi".

2. If permit ACL is appended to KS ACL or ACL is removed from bottom of KS ACL, then there is not flow priority change, and issue is not observed there. Limitation with this workaround is Group config on KS has only one SA. Also if Deny ACL is added there are few packet drops are observed.

3. EEM script which monitors Rekey Syslog and clears the registration. This is same as workaround 1, but automatically done. disadvantage of this workaround is that Rekey syslog is same during normal rekey and policy change rekey, so with normal rekey also re-registration will happen. Sample EEM script : event manager applet GM_RE_REG event syslog occurs 1 pattern ".*GM_RECV_REKEY.*" action 10 syslog priority warnings msg "EEM trigger workaround for CSCum08864 " action 20 cli command "enable" action 30 cli command "clear cry gdoi" pattern "Are you sure you want to proceed" action 40 cli command "yes".

4. The ACL swapped on KS with new ACL and Rekey is done. The ASR1K GM will re-register, there is small packet drop during re-registration.

  • CSCum29065

Symptom: Group override does not take effect for interface-config strings. Actual ordering of interface config strings on cloned V-Access does not correspond to the expected order based on AAA settings in IKEv2 profile.

Conditions: User & group authorization configured in IKEv2 profile.

Workaround: Move all config-string attributes to a single authorization source (user or group).

  • CSCum71485

Symptom: Increasing number of TEK generated every 30 secs.

Conditions: 1. Change the Group Identity on the Secondary KS causing encryption failure, Change the Group Identity on the Primary KS. All the GMs are deleted from the KSs.

2. Restore the Secondary Key Server. Wait for it to come up as Primary for the Group : GETVPN-GROUP-1

3. Restore the Primary Key Server with Group : GETVPN-GROUP-1

4. This is creating a new TEK policy every 30 sec from the newly elected Primary Key Server KS2. The sequence number for rekey remains 1.

5. KS1 is restored to be the primary role. 6. After the existing TEKS from the KS2 are expired it behaves normally.

Workaround: None.

  • CSCum73167

  • CSCum93484

Symptom: Cisco 7301 router running EzVPN leaks memory when Crypto IKMP calls AAA API's which allocates memory for AAA attribute list.

Conditions: This symptom is observed in device running EzVPN, when it tries to allocate memory for AAA attribute list.

Workaround: Reload the router.

  • CSCum94408

Symptom: Intermittently, if a root's CRL to validate Sub does not get downloaded [Internal or External failures], and the CRL by Sub gets downloaded, the following message will be seen:

[Debug crypto isakmp and Debug crypto pki m/t/v/c] ISAKMP (35845): adding peer's pubkey to cache ISAKMP:(35845): processing SIG payload. message ID = 0 %CRYPTO-3-IKMP_QUERY_KEY: Querying key pair failed.
 

Conditions: This symptom occurs in Cisco IOS configured with the IKEv1, Authentication mode RSA-SIG [Certificates]. PKI Infrastructure is as follows: Root -> Sub -> ID - Root and Sub Trustpoint have "revocation-check crl none". - Sub has "chain-validation continue Root".

Workaround: Disable Revocation-check and Chain-validation under Sub Trustpoint.

  • CSCum96156

Symptom: IOS will fail to match the certificate map intermittently.

Conditions: IOS PKI using certificate maps, to authorize the Peer certificates or override CDP. In this case: - if a certificate map is written on a PC, with upper case letters in them: Ex: crypto pki certificate map HR-Users 10 subject-name co ou = HR-Users - and this is a part of the configuration that is merged with the running config through IOS file-system [directly from flash or FTP/TFTP/HTTP etc], IOS retains the upper case letters. [contrary to certificate maps written through CLI, always converts everything to lower case letters]

Workaround:

A) - copy the certificate maps [that have upper case letters in them] to a notepad - remove the certificate maps [that have upper case letters in them] - paste the certificate maps, through IOS CLI - wherever these cert maps were being called, they will stay intact, and this change will take effect immediately or

B) - The certificate map needs to enter IOS in a manner that IOS would insert it if you were to enter it in a CLI I.e. Make sure the external config generators generate the certificate map in such a way that everything is in lower case, and it has white spaces between DN OID, '=' and the value.

  • CSCun09640

Symptom:

The following errors are seen when adding a child policy to a parent policy while configuring hierarchical QoS.

%CPPOSLIB-3-ERROR_NOTIFY: F0: cpp_cp: cpp_cp encountered an error
%CPPOSLIB-3-ERROR_NOTIFY: F0: fman_fp_image: fman-fp encountered an error
%PMAN-3-PROCHOLDDOWN: F0: pman.sh: The process cpp_ha_top_level_server has been helddown (rc 69)
%PMAN-3-PROCHOLDDOWN: F0: pman.sh: The process cpp_cp_svr has been helddown (rc 134)
 

This can result in a ESP (F Fabric) reload, causing a traffic outage

*Feb 13 07:39:05.829: %IOSXE_OIR-6-ONLINECARD: Card (fp) online in slot F0

 

Conditions:

1. An interface with a service-policy applied.

2. Replacing the child policy on the parent hierarchical policy applied to the interface.

Workaround:Remove the policy from the interface before making the changes to the child/parent policy then reapply the policy to the parent.

OR

If you issue the no command to remove the child policy from the parent and then query for pending configuration objects using the "show platform software object-manager fp active statistics" command to make sure there are no pending objects, then issue the service-policy to add the new child policy to the parent, you will not see the ESP crash.

Further Problem Description:

When replacing the child policy configured on a parent policy applied to an interface, the ESP may crash.

conf t
policy-map parent
class class-default
no service-policy child_A
service-policy child_B
end
 

Using a file, that replace a child policy, copied from the hard-disk of the router to the running configuration will almost always cause the ESP to crash. If file is copied from tftp, it is less likely. If using CLI to replace the child policy, crash has not been experienced, but can not be completely ruled out. The issue is heavily based on timing and how fast the "no service-policy child_A" and "service-policy child_b" are processed together.

  • CSCun26137

Symptom: ISR G2 router may crash while configure VTI/GRE tunnels.

Conditions: Configuring VTI/GRE tunnels.

Workaround: Shut down tunnel before making tunnel configuration changes

  • CSCun31021

Symptom: A vulnerability in IKE module of Cisco IOS and Cisco IOS XE could allow an unauthenticated, remote attacker to affect already established Security Associations (SA). The vulnerability is due to a wrong handling of rogue IKE Main Mode packets. An attacker could exploit this vulnerability by sending a crafted Main Mode packet to an affected device. An exploit could allow the attacker to cause dropping of valid, established IKE Security Associations on an affected device.

Conditions: Device configured to process IKE request that already has a number of established security associations.

Workaround: None

  • CSCun99766

Symptom: Router crashed while making changes to AppNav policy-map and/or class-map.

Conditions: Multiple AppNav controllers are used. Sessions had been created and can be seen using "show service-insertion statistics sessions". AppNav policy-map and class-map is modified when live traffic are being redirected by AppNav. Policy-map / class-map change resulted in mismatch between AppNav Controllers.

Workaround: When using AppNav Controller Group with multiple ACs, avoid changing policy-map / class-map when there are active sessions present (use "show service-insertion statistics sessions").

Further Problem Description: When policy-map, class-map change results in changes to existing session. When a new connection matching this session is sync'd to the other ACs which are not aware of the policy-map / class-map, it results in crash.

  • CSCuo02558

Symptom: Crash in cpp_cp_svr when executing 'show platform packet-trace packet all'.

Conditions: Crash can only occur when executing 'show platform packet-trace packet all'.

Workaround: Display a single packet at a time using 'show platform packet-trace packet <num>' instead of using 'all'.

Further Problem Description: Problem is very difficult to reproduce as probability of hitting the issue is less than 0.1%.

Symptom: The Cisco 7301 router running c7301-advipservicesk9-mz.152-4.M3 experiences a memory leak in the Crypto IKMP process particularly on the crypto_ikmp_config_send_ack_addr function.

Conditions: This symptom occurs when running the Cisco 7301 router and connecting EasyVPN through it.

Workaround: Reload the router over a period of time.

  • CSCuh35993

Symptom: create an RRI route for deny ACL lines in the crypto map

Conditions: 15.x code and L2L ipsec tunnel

Workaround: None

  • CSCui06926

Symptom: Initiator sends identity certificate based on “ca trustpoint” under the isakmp-profile. However, the responder does not do this. Instead it gets the identity certificate from the *first* trustpoint (out of the list of trustpoints) based on peer's cert_req payload in MM3.

Conditions: This symptom is observed under the following conditions: 1. IKEv1 with RSA-SIg Authentication, where each Peer has two certificates issued by the same CA. 2. Each Peer has isakmp profiles defined that match on certificate-map and have “ca trustpoint” statements with self-identity as fqdn.

Workaround: There is no workaround. At this point, responder does not have control over selecting the right certificate.

  • CSCui84532

Symptom: RP is again fragmenting it.

Conditions: Giant pkts are sent from SPA after LAF.

Workaround: No work around.

  • CSCui85371

Symptom: Ikev2 session is NOT coming UP

Conditions: Ikev2 session is NOT coming UP Loopback to loopback ping is not going through.

Workaround: NO

  • CSCuj02503

Symptom:'Internal_service' license state shows as 'Active, Not In Use' even after its expiry. The system Linux Shell cannot be accessed upon expiry of the 'Internal_service' 1 Day license which is expected. However if an new 1 Day license is installed again, the license state comes up as 'Active, In Use' but Linux Shell cannot be accessed.

Conditions:Install 1 Day 'Internal_service' license. Let the license expire then install another 1 Day 'Internal_service' license.

Workaround: Configure and unconfigure the 'platform shell' configuration command to recover the license to proper working state.

Router#config terminal
Router(config)#platform shell
Router(config)#no platform shell
Router(config)#platform shell

Now the System Linux Shell would be accessible.

  • CSCuj02519

Symptom: Chunk memory leak in Crypto Proxy

Conditions: This is only seen with IPSEC HA configured

Workaround: None at this time.

  • CSCuj31165

Symptom: crpcipSecGlobalActiveTunnels is incrementing endlessly.

Conditions: crpcipSecGlobalActiveTunnels OID does not decrements when the current active tunnel is removed.

Workaround: no work around.

  • CSCuj71234

Symptom: Tracebacks with the following signature "%QFPOOR-4-LOWRSRC_PERCENT" are seen on the console with negative percentage complaining of resource depletion.

Conditions: These tracebacks are usually seen on a clean-up operation performed on a router i.e manual removal of all configurations. But it's not limited to only this operation and could be seen with router configuration as well.

Workaround: None.

Further Problem Description: Error messages with “-ve” percentage values of resource depletion are incorrectly being printed on the console. It's safe to ignore them as the router is not under any duress. Moreover these traces don't cause any operational impact. It should be noted however that if such tracebacks are reported with “+ve” percentage values of resource depletion, then it's an altogether different issue. In such a case, the system may be under duress and inspection of the router configurations and it's operational state is required.

  • CSCuj84219

Symptom: Error messages shown on KS after SW upgrade to 15.2(4)M. Whenever a GM with multiple GDOI groups registers, an error message is logged on the respective KS: Oct 4 11:31:28.477 CEST: %CRYPTO-6-IKMP_NO_ID_CERT_FQDN_MATCH: ID of ce-de-xxxxx.wan.domain.net (type 2) and certificate fqdn with ce-de-xxxxx

Conditions: Multiple GDOI groups with different GETVPN local-addresses configured on GM. GM/KS are ISR G2 routers running on 15.2(4)M code.

Workaround: Configure “crypto isakmp identity dn”, i.e. set the ISAKMP identity to the distinguished name (DN) of the router certificate. http://www.cisco.com/c/en/US/docs/ios/security/command/reference/sec_c4.html#wp1060149

  • CSCul20010

Symptom: The user will see the system shaping to too low a rate when a tunnel moves to a faster interface, and shaping to too high a rate when a tunnel moves to a slower interface.

Conditions: Upon a dynamic move of a tunnel to a link with a different speed and the QoS configuration option “shape average percent” has been applied, then rates are not automatically re-calculated.

Workaround: The workaround to this issue is to avoid “shape average percent” when possible. If not possible, then after a tunnel moves occurs modify the shaping percent by plus or minus 1 percent, and then restore to original value because this forces recalculation of the shaping rate.

  • CSCul02627

Symptom: UEA: Log files are not generated with PTP configurations

Conditions: Configure RSP2 as the slave and RSP1 as the master Go to shell using “request platform software system shell” cd /tmp/rp/trace ls -ltr Notice that the log files related to PTP aren't present.

Workaround: Reload of RSP2

  • CSCul04434

Symptom: Given a GETVPN GM that is configured with an ipv6 crypto map, if that crypto map is applied to two interfaces (one common identity, e.g. loopback) and if certain configuration operations are performed, the GM will loose connectivity to the ipv6 group. If the GM has dual-stack interfaces with both an ipv4 and an ipv6 crypto map. The IPv4 GETVPN functionality will not be affected while triggering the event documented in this defect.

Conditions: Performing configuration operations that follow the patterns described below : 0. IPv6 Crypto Map applied to two interface (E0/0 and E2/0, lets call them Primary and Secondary) At this stage all works well IPv6 traffic is encrypted between two test GMs.

1. Shut down Secondary interface (E2/0) Result, no change in functionality GM can still exchange encrypted IPv6 traffic with peers.

2. Remove the ipv6 crypto map from the Primary interface (E0/0, while E2/0 is in admin shutdown state). Result, IPv6 traffic is sent out in clear text

3. Re-apply crypto map to the Primary interface (i.e. E0/0) Result, no change, packets are still being sent out in clear text, even though GDOI sees the E0/0 interface as associated with the cry map and group.

4. Remove the crypto map from the Secondary interface which is still in shutdown state Result : No change in the behavior

5. Remove and re-apply the crypto map on the Primary interface Result : GM re-registers

Workaround: Remove the ipv6 crypto map from the Secondary Interface before shutting it down.

  • CSCul15647

Symptom: Classification by ACL in QoS is broken when using it with IPSec tunnel.

Conditions: -use ACL for classification in policy-map and apply a QoS to physical interface -qos pre-classify is configured under IPSec tunnel

Workaround: apply a QoS to IPSec tunnel

  • CSCul39211

Symptom: With an IOS router set as an EZVPN client, with either interactive (CLI) or HTTP-Intercept authentication enabled, if the user does not enter in proper credentials within 10 seconds, the router will resend AM3 to the EzVPN server. This causes a retransmission storm to trigger and quickly tear down the tunnel, which causes the authentication to fail.

Conditions: IOS router acting as EzVPN client

Workaround: 1) Have users enter credentials within 10 seconds of login prompt. 2) Save credentials on router so users don't need to enter them every time. 3) Downgrade to 15.1(4)M5 or earlier

  • CSCul95089

Symptom: AAA sessions are lingering for old connections.

Conditions: Running Flex VPN server with accounting, clients are identified by email id

Workaround: none

Further Problem Description: Accounting sessions are not cleared when a client does reconnect from a different IP upon reception and parsing of the IKEv2 Initial Contact payload

  • CSCum14041

Symptom: QFP error logs not displayed on IOS console.

Conditions: IOS-XE 3.10/15.3(3)S and forward releases.

Workaround: None.

Resolved Caveats—Cisco IOS XE Release 3.10.1S

  • CSCuh07934

Symptom: No error-message for reason with restapi GET interface failure.

Conditions: Restapi GET interface on CSR 1000V interface which has ipv6 address configured.

Workaround: None

  • CSCuc41531

Symptoms: Forwarding loop is observed for some PfR-controlled traffic. Conditions: This symptom is observed with the following conditions: - Traffic Classes (TCs) are controlled via PBR. - The parent route is withdrawn on selected BR/exit.

Workaround: This issue does not affect configured or statically defined applications, but only affects learned applications so this can be used as one workaround. Another option is to issue shut/no shut on PfR master or clear the related TCs with the clear pfr master traffic-class command (this fixes the issue until the next occurrence).

  • CSCud49546

Symptom: RP crashes with punted fragment-bit set multicast packet.

Conditions: Fragment bit is set in the multicast packet

Workaround: None

  • CSCue89779

Symptom: A FlexVPN spoke configured with an inside VRF and front-door VRF may have problems with spoke-to-spoke tunnels if they are not the same. During tunnel negotiation, two Virtual-access interfaces are created (while only one is needed), the one in excess may fail to cleanup correctly. As a result, the routes created by NHRP process may lead to loss of traffic, or traffic may continue to flow through the Hub.

Conditions: This symptom occurs when the VRF used on the overlay (IVRF) and the VRF used on the transport (FVRF) are not the same.

Workaround: There is no workaround.

  • CSCuf56842

Symptom: A reload may occur while using show oer and show pfr commands via SSH.

Conditions: This symptom is observed when the show pfr master application detail command is used via SSH.

Workaround: There is no workaround.

  • CSCug69107

Symptom: Crypto session does not comes up in EZVPN.

Conditions: This symptom is observed when a Crypto session is being established.

Workaround: There is no workaround.

  • CSCug99771

Symptom: OSPF N2 default route missing from Spoke upon reloading Hub. Hub has a static default route configured and sends that route over DMVPN tunnel running OSPF to spoke. When hub is reloaded, the default route is missing on Spoke. NSSA-External LSA is there on Spoke after reload, but the routing bit is not set. Hence, it is not installed in RIB on Spoke.

Conditions: Default originated using command area X nssa default-information-originate.

Workaround: Removing & re adding area X nssa default-information-originate on Hub resolves the issue.

  • CSCuh32177

Symptom: The no passive-interface command will be added automatically after configuring the ipv6 enable command on the interface even though the passive-interface default command is configured for OSPFv3.

(config)#interface FastEthernet0/2/0
(config-if)#ipv6 enable (
config-if)#end #sh run | sec ipv6 router ospf ipv6 router ospf 100 router-id 10.1.1.1 passive-interface default no passive-interface FastEthernet0/2/0 <<< Added automatically. ---
 

Conditions: This symptom occurs when the passive-interface default command is configured for OSPFv3.

Workaround: Adjust the configuration manually. In this example it would be passive-interface FastEthernet0/2/0.

  • CSCuh43027

Symptom: Prefixes withdrawn from BGP are not removed from the RIB, although they are removed from the BGP table.

Conditions: A withdraw message contains more than one NLRI, one of which is for a route that is not chosen as best. If deterministic med is enabled, then the other NLRI in the withdraw message might not eventually be removed from the RIB.

Workaround: Forcibly clear the RIB.

Further Problem Description: This issue may also occur if BGP PIC is enabled and the withdraw message contains a route that is currently serving as a backup path.

  • CSCuh94035

Symptom: A watchdog timeout crash occurs.

Conditions: This symptom occurs when DMVPN and IPv4/IPv6 EIGRP are configured. A crash occurs while DUAL is updating the EIGRP topology table.

Workaround: There is no workaround.

  • CSCuh97129

Symptom: Losing EIGRP Extended communities on BGP L3VPN route.

Conditions: This symptom is observed when Remote PE-CE connection is brought down and only backup EIGRP path remains in the BGP table.

Workaround: Clearing the problem route in the VRF will resolve the issue.

  • CSCui07997

Symptom: Route over OSPFv2 sham-link shows two next hop.

Conditions: This symptom is observed when the route entry is ECMP route between the sham-link and another path.

Workaround: Break ECMP by adjusting the OSPF cost.

  • CSCui29499

Symptom: ISIS going into INIT state.

Conditions: BFD flap leads to ISIS adjacency not coming up if the following conditions are true: 1.) In P2P mode only 2.) when local node supports RFC6213 and its remote neighbor does not support RFC6213 3.) The P2P link is down and adjacency is deleted on the remote neighbor and up again before the adjacency hold down timer expires on the local node that has the RFC6213 support.

Workaround: Any of the following work around will work. - Remove BFD on 903, wait for ISIS to come up and configure BFD again - Shut and no shut the interface on the local node with RFC6213 Or - Not to use P2P link at all

  • CSCui89069

Symptom: ISIS Flap on performing SSO.

Conditions: with nsf ietf configured and one or more loopbacks configured as passive interfaces

Workaround: Two workarounds are available: 1)use nsf cisco or 2) Continue to use nsf ietf but configure ip router isis process_name on the loopback interfaces.

Resolved Caveats—Cisco IOS XE Release 3.10.0S

  • CSCud23158

Symptom: On the Cisco CSR1000v an unexpected reset may occur when sending IPv4 small packet traffic at a high rate.

Workaround: None

  • CSCud71606

Symptom: The LSMPI Tracebacks errors are seen while clearing IP routes multiple times.

Conditions: This symptom is observed under the following conditions:

Configuring OSPF.

Has more than 1000 OSPF neighbors, which will make OSPF LSU packet get fragmented.

Clear ip ospf process * and OSPF will send an LSU packet, which triggers this error message.

Workaround: None.

  • CSCue39542

Symptom: Tunnel interface states down and fail to carry traffic.

Conditions: The tunnel interface stays down after the tunnel stay flaps. Can be from issuing “shut” and “no shut” commands manually, or the physical port state flaps. And the tunnel state might stay down forever after the event.

Workaround: Delete and recreate the tunnel interface with the same config will bring this tunnel back to up state.

  • CSCue41031

Symptom: Extra flow is shown in show crypto session command.

Conditions: None.

Workaround: None.

  • CSCue95542

Symptom: A crash was observed after configuring ethernet CFM on the router. The crash occurred in the linux_iosd process.

Workaround: None.

  • CSCuh20338

Symptom: ucode crash @ ipv4_ipsec_tunnel_input

Conditions: Bringup 10 FlexVPN sessions on Cisco CSR 100V.Workaround: Enter the no ip source-route command.

  • CSCuh70383

Symptom: The Cisco CSR 1000V is deployed from the OVF template, powered up until completion of the 1st time boot process, then powered down and a new vNIC is added while the router is offline. After the router is powered up again, the new interfaces are recognized but the Cisco CSR 1000V VM is observed at operating with 100% CPU usage. The router stays at 100% CPU as long as the newly added interface is in admin shutdown state. CSR CPU usage revert to normal once the interface is admin 'no shutdown'. Not all interface additions will result in this condition.

Conditions: When adding a new vNIC to the Cisco CSR 1000V.

Workaround: After the new interface is added, administer the no shutdown to the interface.

Open Caveats—Cisco IOS XE Release 3.10.0S

  • CSCue33225

Conditions: Reset all Cisco CSR 1000V VMs running on a server (4:1 CPU oversubscription). All VMs are 4 vCPU with 4 GB RAM and 3 NICs each.

Workaround: Do not oversubscribe.

  • CSCuh49807

Symptom: IPsec transform set with esp-md5-hmac is not supported in this release. When esp-md5-hmac is used, though the IPsec tunnel is established, traffic can not pass through the tunnel. Inbound traffic will be dropped with HMAC error. Outbound traffic will reach to the peer, but will be dropped by the peer with HMAC error.

The following error message is displayed:

%IOSXE-3-PLATFORM: F0: cpp_cp: QFP:0.0 Thread:000 TS:00000002356612773534 %IPSEC-3-HMAC_ERROR: IPSec SA receives HMAC error, DP Handle 5, src_addr 60.0.0.2, dest_addr 60.0.0.1, SPI 0xb98e9ee1
 

Conditions: Whenever esp-md5-hmac is used in an IPsec transform set.

Workaround: Use esp-sha-hmac, not esp-md5-hmac.

  • CSCuh73332

Symptom: Can show "Last reload reason: <NULL>"

Conditions: CPP crash on CSR

Workaround: None

  • CSCui12606

Symptom: If Gi1 interface does not exist on the CSR when the CSR boots up, the following error message is logged:

*Jul 16 14:57:17.598: %IOSXE-4-PLATFORM: R0/0: kernel: TIPC: Bearer <eth:Gi1> rejected, enable failure (19)
*Jul 16 14:57:18.722: %PMAN-3-PROCHOLDDOWN: F0: pman.sh: The process wui-tipc-launch.sh has been helddown (rc 255)
 

The Gi1 interface (usually vnic2 of the CSR VM) could disappear from CSR for any one of the following reasons:

1) the vNIC is deleted from vSphere then the CSR is rebooted

2) the MAC address of the vNIC is changed from vSphere

Conditions: Gi1 interface does not exist on the CSR.

Workaround: If the CSR has multiple vNICs, use the 'clear platform software vnic-if nvtable' command to remap the vNICs to interfaces mapping, then reboot the CSR. Note that the command might remap the interfaces not in the order shown on vSphere for the CSR VM. Use with care.

  • CSCui41279

Symptom: When the CSR1000V boots in premium mode, cannot configure throughput level or install a new premium throughput level license. Throughput will be set to 2500 kbps.

Conditions: CSR boot in premium mode with premium license.

Workaround: Reload the router.

Conditions: Noticed in a scaled DMVPN topology.

Workaround: None

Resolved Caveats—Cisco IOS XE Release 3.9.0aS

  • CSCsr10335

Symptoms: A router loses its default gateway during autoinstall.

Conditions: This issue was seen on Cisco IOS Release 12.4(15)T5, but should affect every Cisco IOS version.

Workaround:

1. Manually do a shut followed by a no shut on the interface.

2. Create an EEM script, for example:

event manager applet Check-Default-Route event syslog pattern "CNS-3-TRANSPORT: CNS_HTTP_CONNECTION_FAILED"

action 1.0 cli command enable
action 1.1 cli command config term
action 1.2 cli command interface GigabitEthernet0/0<
action 1.3 cli command shut
action 1.4 cli command no shut
action 1.5 cli command end
action 1.6 cli command write ! end

3. In the network configuration, configure ip address dhcp for the interface which is supposed to get the default gateway from DHCP.

  • CSCuc17133

Symptom: The CSR router would crash at IPSec code if a DMVPN session is up and running for some time.

Conditions: Usually happens within an hour. No traffic is needed.

Workaround: None.

  • CSCuc45115

Symptoms: EIGRP flapping is seen continuously on the hub. A crash is seen at nhrp_add_static_map.

Conditions: This symptom is observed in the case where there are two Overlay addresses of a different Address Family on the same NBMA (such as IPv4 and IPv6 over Ipv4). This issue is observed after shut/no shut on the tunnel interface, causing a crash at the hub. A related issue is also seen when there is no IPv6 connectivity between the hub and spoke, causing continuous EIGRP flapping on the hub.

Workaround: There is no known workaround.

  • CSCuc99788

Symptom: ERSPAN traceback

Conditions: Configured 2k sub-interfaces.

Workaround: None

  • CSCud02391

Symptoms: The EIGRP routes do not come up after removing and reenabling the tunnel interface.

Conditions: This symptom is observed when EIGRP routes do not populate properly.

Workaround: There is no workaround.

  • CSCud03863

Symptom: ESP crashes on CSR

Conditions: Crash occurs when sending traffic through a non gig 0 interface

Workaround: No workaround as this is caused by unsupported CPUs with missing features. As per the data sheet ( http://www.cisco.com/c/en/US/prod/collateral/routers/ps12558/ps12559/data_sheet_c78-705395.pdf) , the CPU requirement is “Intel Nehalem or AMD Barcelona CPU with clock frequency 1.8GHz” or higher.

  • CSCud23158

Symptom: On the CSR1000V an unexpected reset may occur when sending IPv4 small packet traffic at a high rate.

Conditions: This is intermittently seen with a basic CEF configuration passing bi-directional 64 Byte traffic near 100% Gigabit Ethernet line-rate.

Workaround: None

  • CSCud67970

Symptom: Provisioned QoS service is not honored.

Conditions: When fair-queue is removed from the class on-the-fly, the rates, i.e., bandwidth and shape, are no longer configured in the hardware.

Workaround: Remove the fair-queue class and re-add it without fair-queue.

  • CSCud71606

Symptom: LSMPI Tracebacks/Errors seen while clearing IP routes multiple times.

Conditions: ASR- GIG-------IXIA >> 2K vlans on GIGE and IXIA subi-intfs >> OSPF neighbour hood was properly achieved with 1000 Vlans

Workaround: None

  • CSCud93920

Symptom: QFP errors on applying AVC to MPLS interfaces.

Conditions: AVC is not supported on an MPLS interface so this is a misconfiguration.

Workaround: Not applicable.

  • CSCue36106
