Cisco IOS XE Software and Naming Conventions

The Cisco Catalyst 4500E Series Switches run Cisco IOS XE software initially introduced on the Cisco ASR 1000 Series Aggregation Services Routers.

The following discussion outlines the format of the Cisco IOS XE Images.

<platform_name>-<bundle_feature_set>.<303_sign_key_version>
<IOS XE_version>.<IOS_image_version>.bin

platform_name—Indicates the name of the platform supported by the IOS XE bundle

bundle_feature set—Indicates the feature set provided by the IOS XE bundle, such as universalk9 or universalk9_lite.

303_sign_key_version—A three character string indicating that the IOS XE bundle is 303ly signed. The meaning of each character is as follows:

First character: Always an 'S', which stands for 303ly signed software.

Second character: 'P' or 'S' denoting a 303ly signed Production (P) or Special (S) IOS XE software bundle. A Production IOS XE bundle is Cisco software approved for general release.A Special IOS XE bundle is development software provided under special conditions for limited use.

Third character: Indicates the key version used to 303ly sign the IOS XE software bundle. A key version is identified by an alphabetical character - for example, A, B or C.

IOS_XE_version—Indicates the bundle's IOS XE release number

IOS_image_version—Indicates the IOS image version of the IOS package contained in the IOS XE bundle.

Example: cat4500e-universalk9.SPA.03.01.00.SG.150-1.XO.bin

For detailed information on Cisco IOS XE, refer to the following URL:

http://www.cisco.com/en/US/products/ps11174/tsd_products_support_series_home.html

Image Categories

Universal_lite image includes two levels of feature sets—LAN Base and IP Base. Anyone with guest access can download the Universal_lite image from cisco.com. If you purchase LAN Base or IP Base, you will receive free software updates.

Universal Image includes three level of feature sets—LAN Base, IP Base, and Enterprise Services. To download the Universal Image, you must have a valid technical support service agreement associated with your Cisco.com user ID. If you purchase a SMARTnet contract, you will receive software updates for all levels of feature sets.

For the software policy applicable for different supervisor engines, refer to the following URL:

http://www.cisco.com/en/US/prod/collateral/switches/ps5718/ps4324/product_bulletin_c25-534149.html

Cisco Software Activation Licensing

Starting with Cisco IOS Software Release 3.1.0 SG, the Catalyst 4500E Supervisor Engine 7-E supports the Cisco software activation licensing solution. This solution is currently implemented on Cisco Catalyst 3750-E and 3560-E Switches and Cisco Integrated Services Routers Generation 2.

As Figure 1 indicates, you can order Cisco Catalyst 4500E Supervisor Engine 7-E with a universal image and different Cisco IOS Software licenses. The software license configures the image with different feature sets (such as IP BASE and Enterprise Services). This arrangement provides you with the following benefits:

Ease of ordering

A single Cisco IOS XE Software Universal image that ships with all Cisco Catalyst 4500E Supervisor Engine 7-E systems

Cisco IOS Software enforceable licenses to enable different levels of packages

Operational simplicity

Try and buy

Reduced testing

Services on demand

Cisco IOS Software feature upgrades by enabling a new license key, reducing the need for service calls to remote offices

Limitations and Restrictions

These sections list the limitations and restrictions for the current release of Cisco IOS software on the Catalyst 4500E series switch.

The supervisor engine front-panel management port (FastEthernet1 interface) is not supported.

The WS-X4712-SFP+E module is not supported in the WS-C4507R-E or WS-C4510R-E chassis and does not boot. This module is supported in the WS-C4503-E, WS-C4506-E, WS-C4507R+E, and WS-C4510R+E chassis.

802.1q tunneling and related features are not supported.

More than 16K QoS policies can be configured in software. Only the first 16K are installed in hardware.

Adjacency learning (through ARP response frames) is restricted to roughly 1000 new adjacencies per second, depending on CPU utilization. This should only impact large networks on the first bootup. After adjacencies are learned they are installed in hardware.

Multicast fastdrop entries are not created when RPF failure occurs with IPv6 multicast traffic. In a topology where reverse path check failure occurs with IPv6 multicast, this may cause high CPU utilization on the switch.

The SNMP ceImageFeature object returns a similar feature list for all the three license levels (LAN Base, IP Base, and EntServices). Although the activated feature set for a universal image varies based on the installed feature license, the value displayed by this object is fixed and is not based on the feature license level.

Standard TFTP implementation limits the maximum size of a file that can be transferred to 32 MB. If ROMMON is used to boot an IOS image that is larger than 32 MB, the TFTP transfer fails at the 65,xxx datagram.

TFTP numbers its datagrams with a 16 bit field, resulting in a maximum of 65,536 datagrams. Because each TFTP datagram is 512 bytes long, the maximum transferable file is 65536 x 512 = 32 MB. If both the TFTP client (ROMMON) and the TFTP server support block number wraparound, no size limitation exists.

Cisco has modified the TFTP client to support block number wraparound. So, if you encounter a transfer failure, use a TFTP server that supports TFTP block number wraparound. Because most implementations of TFTP support block number wraparound, updating the TFTP daemon should fix the issue.

A XML-PI specification file entry does not return the desired CLI output.

The outputs of certain commands, such as show ip route and show access-lists, contain non-deterministic text. While the output is easily understood, the output text does not contain strings that are consistently output. A general purpose specification file entry is unable to parse all possible output.

Workaround (1):

While a general purpose specification file entry may not be possible, a specification file entry might be created that returns the desired text by searching for text that is guaranteed to be in the output. If a string is guaranteed to be in the output, it can be used for parsing.

For example, the output of the show ip access-lists SecWiz_Gi3_17_out_ip command is this:

    Extended IP access list SecWiz_Gi3_17_out_ip
        10 deny ip 76.0.0.0 0.255.255.255 host 65.65.66.67
        20 deny ip 76.0.0.0 0.255.255.255 host 44.45.46.47
        30 permit ip 76.0.0.0 0.255.255.255 host 55.56.57.57
 
   

The first line is easily parsed because access list is guaranteed to be in the output:

    <Property name="access list" alias="Name" distance="1.0" length="-1" type="String" 
/>
 
   

The remaining lines all contain the term host. As a result, the specification file may report the desired values by specifying that string. For example, this line

<Property name="host" alias="rule" distance="s.1" length="1" type="String" />
 
   

will produce the following for the first and second rules

    <rule>
        deny
    </rule>
 
   

and the following for the third statement

    <rule>
        permit
    <rule>
 
   

Workaround (2):

Request the output of the show running-config command using NETCONF and parse that output for the desired strings. This is useful when the desired lines contain nothing in common. For example, the rules in this access list do not contain a common string and the order (three permits, then a deny, then another permit), prevent the spec file entry from using permit as a search string, as in the following example:

    Extended MAC access list MACCOY 
        permit 0000.0000.ffef ffff.ffff.0000 0000.00af.bcef ffff.ff00.0000 appletalk
        permit any host 65de.edfe.fefe xns-idp
        permit any any protocol-family rarp-non-ipv4
        deny   host 005e.1e5d.9f7d host 3399.e3e1.ff2c dec-spanning
        permit any any
 
   

The XML output of show running-config command includes the following, which can then be parsed programmatically, as desired:

    
<mac><access-list><extended><ACLName>MACCOY</ACLName></extended></access-list></mac>
    <X-Interface> permit 0000.0000.ffef ffff.ffff.0000 0000.00af.bcef ffff.ff00.0000 
appletalk</X-Interface>
    <X-Interface> permit any host 65de.edfe.fefe xns-idp</X-Interface>
    <X-Interface> permit any any protocol-family rarp-non-ipv4</X-Interface>
    <X-Interface> deny   host 005e.1e5d.9f7d host 3399.e3e1.ff2c 
dec-spanning</X-Interface>
    <X-Interface> permit any any</X-Interface>

Although you can configure subsecond PIM query intervals on Catalyst 4500 platforms, such an action represents a compromise between convergence (reaction time) and a number of other factors (number of mroutes, base line of CPU utilization, CPU speed, processing overhead per 1 m-route, etc.). You must account for those factors when configuring subsecond PIM timers. We recommend that you set the PIM query interval to a minimum of 2 seconds. By adjusting the available parameters, you can achieve flawless operation; that is, a top number of multicast routes per given convergence time on a specific setup.

When sup1 is in ROMMON and sup2 is in IOS, only sup2 can read the SEEPROM contents of the following chassis components:

chassis

fan-tray

clock-module

power-supplies

mux-buffer for each linecard slot

linecards

On sup1, when the sprom read .. command is entered for any of the above components, the SEEPROM contents are displayed as all "0"s.

When sup1 and sup2 are both in ROMMON (or both in IOS (SSO state)), they can read all SEEPROMs.

Caveats

Caveats describe unexpected behavior in Cisco IOS releases. Caveats listed as open in a prior release are carried forward to the next release as either open or resolved.


Note For the latest information on PSIRTS, refer to the Security Advisories on CCO at the following URL:

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


Open Caveats for Cisco IOS XE Release 3.1.1 SG

This section lists the open caveats for Cisco IOS XE Release 3.1.1 SG:

When you configure EnergyWise power control on PoE ports with a time-based execution schedule, time entry executes without adjusting for daylight savings time.

Workaround: Manually re-enter all entries with new time settings.

CSCsy27389

Changing flow control configuration with traffic and pause frames causes some traffic loss.

This problem can happen when pause frames are sent to the switch port and the flow control receive configuration is toggled on 10-Gb port.

Workaround: Change the flow control receive configuration when no traffic exists. (CSCso71647)

On a redundant configuration, if a switchover occurs immediately after a port falls back to Webauth from 802.1X or MAB, you may notice that loading the Webauth login page on the browser is delayed.

Workarounds: Perform a shut and no-shut operation on the link, then flush the IP device tracking table.

CSCtc99174

Packet drops are observed on ingress with transmit over-subscription traffic if the packet buffer fills because of deep queues.

To check whether packet drops are due to a full buffer, enter the show platform hardware interface stat | include NoPacketBuffAvailCount command. If the command's output displays a non-zero value or continuously incrementing value, the packet buffer is full.

Workaround: Configure a QoS policy-map to reduce the queue size and attach that policy to the over-subscribed egress interface.

policy-map p1
 class class-default
   queue-limit 16
 
   
interface <intf>
 service-policy output p1
 
   

To determine the egress interfaces to which policy-map must be attached, enter the show platform hardware interface <interface name> tx-queue command and check the Num Packets column when congestion occurs. If the value is close to the queue Size, the queue is congested and packets are backed up in the transmit queue, holding up packet buffers. If this queue is a deep queue, the out-of-packet-buffer situation can be mitigated by attaching the above policy.

CSCtg64922

When a large configuration is saved to NVRAM through the write memory command, OSPF adjacency goes down and then comes back up if you set hello and dead timer values smaller than the default values.

Workaround: Use default rather than aggressive timers. CSCtg66784

The ip igmp snooping command is not visible in vlan range mode.

Workaround: IGMP snooping can still be disabled on VLANs individually. CSCth17903

When collecting data from the cpmCPUProcessHistoryTable, the data takes a long time to provide and the CPU utilization of the os_info_p process (OS Info provider) increases substantially. The time it takes to do a full walk of an almost fully populated table takes 68 minutes.

Workaround: None. CSCth42248

The show ipv6 access-list command displays incorrect match counts when multicast traffic is matched to an IPv6 access-list attached to an SVI.

This problem affects the Cisco Catalyst 4500 Series Supervisor 7E.

Workaround: None. CSCth65129

When attaching a existing policy-map (that is already applied to a control-port) to another front-panel port, following message displays:

The policymap <policy-map name> is already attached to control-plane and cannot be 
shared with other targets.
 
   

Workaround: Define a policy-map with a different name and then reattach. CSCti26172

When you attempt to copy from slaveusb0: or to slaveusb0:, the following message displays:

Copy in 
progress...CCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCC
CCCCCCCCCCCCCC
%Error reading slaveusb0:realtest (Error Sending Request)
 
   

Workaround: Avoid remote copying to or from a standby usb0:. Copy from a standby bootflash, or make a local copy directly at the standby bootflash. CSCti29518

A switch responds slowly, if the number of unique FNF monitors attached to target exceeds 2048, one per target.

Workarounds:

Decrease the number of monitors.

Attach the same monitor to multiple targets.

CSCti43798

On all redundant configurations, RF Switchover History time is incorrect when accessed through the cRFHistorySwactTime.

Workaround: Use the show redundancy and show redundancy states commands to retrieve the switchover history times. CSCti53834

When you enter the show access-list command, the hit counts for the ACEs in some access-lists are not updated.

Workaround: None. CSCti54065

On all redundant configurations, SNMP operations to obtain Redundancy Switchover history using cRFHistoryTable fail, returning "NO_SUCH_INSTANCE_EXCEPTION."

Workaround: Enter the show redundancy switchover history command to obtain redundancy switchover history. CSCti55424

CISCO-IETF-IP-MIB and CISCO-IETF-IP-FORWARD-MIB are not supported in Cisco IOS XE 3.1.0 SG.

Workaround: None. CSCti64725

ciscoFlashPartitionFileCount object returns an incorrect file count for bootflash:, usb0:, slot0:, slaveslot0:, slavebootflash:, and slaveusb0:.

Workaround: Use the dir [device] command to obtain the correct file count. Example: dir bootflash: CSCti74130

When you try to copy to slaveusb0: from the active bootflash, the following message displays:

%Error writing slaveusb0:/cat4500e-universalk9-lite.SSA.0.DEV-0.0.DEV-0.bin (Error 
Sending Request)
 *Jul 30 11:38:58.890 UTC: %IOSXE-3-PLATFORM: STANDBY:4 kernel: usb 1-2: device 
descriptor read/64, error -110
*Jul 30 11:39:14.169 UTC: %IOSXE-3-PLATFORM: STANDBY:4 kernel: usb 1-2: device 
descriptor read/64, error -110 
 *Jul 30 11:39:29.625 UTC: %IOSXE-3-PLATFORM: STANDBY:4 kernel: usb 1-2: device 
descriptor read/64, error -110
 
   

Workaround: Remove, reinsert the slaveusb0:, and recopy. CSCti19321

3-5 minutes after you create a GRE tunnel between interfaces on two switches (first hop and last hop), you observe that the FHR begins to drop the tunnel traffic. This causes the (S,G) entry, originally created on the LHR when sending IPv6 source traffic, to time out.

Workaround: Enter shut, then no shut on the host port interface of the first hop. CSCti44397

If you are using a large custom Webauth login page on a switch running Cisco IOS Release 12.2(53)SG3 or IOS-XE 3.1.0 SG and multiple user are trying to access custom HTML pages, the switch might reload.

Workaround: Unconfigure the customized HTML page to use default internal Webauth pages and reload the switch after changing the configuration. CSCti81874

If multicast is configured, at least 10K groups and roughly 20K mroutes exist, and IGMP Joins with source traffic transit to all the multicast groups, and you make changes to the configuration, Traceback and CPUHOG messages are displayed.

This is caused by the large number of updates generating SPI messages that must be processed by the CPU to ensure that the platform is updated with the changes in all the entries.

Workaround: None. CSCti20312

One or more line cards (WS-X46xx and WS-X47xx series) stop responding to interface changes when near-simultaneous link events (if timed correctly) occur on the same linecard.

Only line cards in the WS-X46xx series and the WS-X47xx series are affected. Interfaces that are already linked-up are not affected.

Workaround: Eliminate link flap. If the problem exists, do one of the following:

Reload the linecard module with the hw-module module n reset command.

For dual supervisor engines, perform a switchover. CSCts67025

Frequent link flap can trigger a failure that causes control plane latency until the switch is reloaded. After the issue is triggered, normal traffic is forwarded without drops, but pings to or from the switch drop, and new connections to linecards come up slowly or not at all. The following error messages appear:

C4K_WATCHDOG-3-CHILDFAILURE: 
C4K_LINECARD-3-INTERRUPTDELAYED: 
C4K_LINECARD-3-INTERRUPTCOMPLETED:
 
   

Workaround: Eliminate link flap.

Provide temporary remediation with a forced supervisor engine switchover. CSCtt06131

After booting a switch with Supervisor Engine 7-E, you observe two versions of incorrect up time when using show version or show redundancy:

Workaround: None. CSCtr54218

Occasionally, when an interface with a QoS policy changes speed or when a QoS policy is being programmed on an interface, a Supervisor Engine 7 might unexpectedly encounter an FFM crash.

Workaround: None. CSCtn81726

Rarely, an FFM crash may occur when control plane queues are slow to empty.

Workaround: None. CSCtr07852

If you perform an OIR on a linecard, several %C4K_RKNOVA-4-INVALIDTOKENEXPIRED messages appear in the logs.

Workaround: None. CSCtu37959

A crash may occur when the switch CPU is joined to the session announcement group.

Workaround: Configure neither ip sap listen nor ip igmp join-group 224.2.127.254. CSCtr28857

Following a route flap, a Supervisor Engine 7-E running Cisco IOS XE Release 3.1.0XO or 3.1.1SG crashes and generates an FFM crashinfo file.

Workaround: None. Upgrade to Cisco IOS XE Release 3.2.0SG or higher. CSCtr54723

On a redundant system consisting of supervisor engines 6-E and 7-E, when the system consumes considerable memory (for example, with heavy multicast traffic), a crash may occur. This event is due to a memory mismatch between the two supervisor engines.

Workaround: Upgrade the memory of Supervisor Engine 6-E to match that of Supervisor Engine 7-E.

Resolved Caveats for Cisco IOS XE Release 3.1.1 SG

This section lists the resolved caveats for Cisco IOS XE Release 3.1.1 SG:

When a 4948E uplink or 4712-SFP+E card is used with a SFP and is connected to a peer that does not have auto negotiate, the link will not boot with "speed nonegotiate" configured.

The issue occurs in Releases IOS-XE 3.1.0SG, 12.2(54)XO, and 12.2(54)SG.

Workaround: Use auto negotiation.

Issue resolved in Releases 12.2(54)WO and 15.0(2)SG. CSCtj90069

Upon a SSO switchover, traffic is interrupted for roughly 4 seconds on WS-X4712-SFP+E 10 Gigabit Ethernet links and for roughly 350 millisecond on WS-X45-SUP7-E 10 Gigabit Ethernet links.

Workaround: If system or interface MTU is configured to a non-default value, traffic loss on a SSO switchover is below 200 milliseconds. CSCtj21079

Open Caveats for Cisco IOS XE Release 3.1.0 SG

This section lists the open caveats for Cisco IOS XE Release 3.1.0 SG:

Upon a SSO switchover, traffic is interrupted for roughly 4 seconds on WS-X4712-SFP+E 10 Gigabit Ethernet links and for roughly 350 ms on WS-X45-SUP7-E 10 Gigabit Ethernet links.

Workaround: Configure a system or interface MTU to a non-default value. Doing this reduces traffic loss on SSO switchovers to less than 200 ms.

CSCtj21079

When you configure EnergyWise power control on PoE ports with a time-based execution schedule, time entry executes without adjusting for daylight savings time.

Workaround: Manually re-enter all entries with new time settings.

Workaround: Avoid remote copying to or from a standby usb0:. Copy from a standby bootflash, or make a local copy directly at the standby bootflash. CSCti29518

A switch responds slowly, if the number of unique FNF monitors attached to target exceeds 2048, one per target.

Workarounds:

Decrease the number of monitors.

Attach the same monitor to multiple targets.

CSCti43798

On all redundant configurations, RF Switchover History time is incorrect when accessed through the cRFHistorySwactTime.

Workaround: Use the show redundancy and show redundancy states commands to retrieve the switchover history times. CSCti53834

When you enter the show access-list command, the hit counts for the ACEs in some access-lists are not updated.

Workaround: None. CSCti54065

On all redundant configurations, SNMP operations to obtain Redundancy Switchover history using cRFHistoryTable fail, returning "NO_SUCH_INSTANCE_EXCEPTION."

Workaround: Enter the show redundancy switchover history command to obtain redundancy switchover history. CSCti55424

CISCO-IETF-IP-MIB and CISCO-IETF-IP-FORWARD-MIB are not supported in Cisco IOS XE 3.1.0 SG.

Workaround: None. CSCti64725

ciscoFlashPartitionFileCount object returns an incorrect file count for bootflash:, usb0:, slot0:, slaveslot0:, slavebootflash:, and slaveusb0:.

Workaround: Use the dir [device] command to obtain the correct file count. Example: dir bootflash: CSCti74130

When you try to copy to slaveusb0: from the active bootflash, the following message displays:

%Error writing slaveusb0:/cat4500e-universalk9-lite.SSA.0.DEV-0.0.DEV-0.bin (Error

Workaround: Remove, reinsert the slaveusb0:, and recopy. CSCti19321

3-5 minutes after you create a GRE tunnel between interfaces on two switches (first hop and last hop), you observe that the FHR begins to drop the tunnel traffic. This causes the (S,G) entry, originally created on the LHR when sending IPv6 source traffic, to time out.

Workaround: Enter shut, then no shut on the host port interface of the first hop. CSCti44397

If you are using a large custom Webauth login page on a switch running Cisco IOS Release 12.2(53)SG3 or IOS-XE 3.1.0 SG and multiple user are trying to access custom HTML pages, the switch might reload.

Workaround: Unconfigure the customized HTML page to use default internal Webauth pages and reload the switch after changing the configuration. CSCti81874

If multicast is configured, at least 10K groups and roughly 20K mroutes exist, and IGMP Joins with source traffic transit to all the multicast groups, and you make changes to the configuration, Traceback and CPUHOG messages are displayed.

This is caused by the large number of updates generating SPI messages that must be processed by the CPU to ensure that the platform is updated with the changes in all the entries.

Workaround: None. CSCti20312

One or more line cards (WS-X46xx and WS-X47xx series) stop responding to interface changes when near-simultaneous link events (if timed correctly) occur on the same linecard.

Only line cards in the WS-X46xx series and the WS-X47xx series are affected. Interfaces that are already linked-up are not affected.

Workaround: Eliminate link flap. If the problem exists, do one of the following:

Reload the linecard module with the hw-module module n reset command.

For dual supervisor engines, perform a switchover. CSCts67025

Frequent link flap can trigger a failure that causes control plane latency until the switch is reloaded. After the issue is triggered, normal traffic is forwarded without drops, but pings to or from the switch drop, and new connections to linecards come up slowly or not at all. The following error messages appear:

C4K_WATCHDOG-3-CHILDFAILURE: 
C4K_LINECARD-3-INTERRUPTDELAYED: 
C4K_LINECARD-3-INTERRUPTCOMPLETED:
 
   

Workaround: Eliminate link flap.

Provide temporary remediation with a forced supervisor engine switchover. CSCtt06131

Occasionally, when an interface with a QoS policy changes speed or when a QoS policy is being programmed on an interface, a Supervisor Engine 7 might unexpectedly encounter an FFM crash.

Workaround: None. CSCtn81726

Rarely, an FFM crash may occur when control plane queues are slow to empty.

Workaround: None. CSCtr07852

If you perform an OIR on a linecard, several %C4K_RKNOVA-4-INVALIDTOKENEXPIRED messages appear in the logs.

Workaround: None. CSCtu37959

A crash may occur when the switch CPU is joined to the session announcement group.

Workaround: Configure neither ip sap listen nor ip igmp join-group 224.2.127.254. CSCtr28857

Following a route flap, a Supervisor Engine 7-E running Cisco IOS XE Release 3.1.0XO or 3.1.1SG crashes and generates an FFM crashinfo file.

Workaround: None. Upgrade to Cisco IOS XE Release 3.2.0SG or higher. CSCtr54723

On a redundant system consisting of supervisor engines 6-E and 7-E, when the system consumes considerable memory (for example, with heavy multicast traffic), a crash may occur. This event is due to a memory mismatch between the two supervisor engines.

Workaround: Upgrade the memory of Supervisor Engine 6-E to match that of Supervisor Engine 7-E.

Troubleshooting

These sections provide troubleshooting guidelines for the Catalyst 4500 series switches running IOS supervisor engines:

Netbooting from ROMMON

Troubleshooting at the System Level

Troubleshooting Modules

Troubleshooting MIBs

Netbooting from ROMMON

Netbooting using a boot loader image is not supported. Instead, use one of the following options to boot an image:

1. Boot from an SD card by entering the following command:

rommon 1> boot slot0:<bootable_image>
 
   

2. Use ROMMON TFTP boot.

The ROMMON TFTP boot is very similar to the BOOTLDR TFTP boot, except that:

the BOOTLDR variable should not be set

the TFTP server must be accessible from the Ethernet management port on the supervisor engine.

To boot from ROMMON, perform the following tasks while in ROMMON mode:

a. Ensure that the Ethernet management port on the supervisor engine is physically connected to the network.

b. Verify that bootloader environment is not set by entering the unset bootldr command.

c. Set IP address of the Ethernet management port on the supervisor engine by entering the following command: set interface fa1 ip_address ip_mask

For example, to set the supervisor engine Ethernet port with an IP address 172.16.1.5 and IP mask 255.255.255.0, enter the following command:

rommon 2> set interface fa1 172.16.1.5 255.255.255.0
 
   

d. Set default gateway for the Ethernet management port on the supervisor engine by entering the following command: set ip route default gateway_ip_address. The default gateway should be directly connected to the supervisor engine Ethernet management port subnet.

e. Ping the TFTP server to ensure that there is connectivity to the server from the Ethernet management port on the supervisor engine by entering the following command: ping tftp_server_ip_address.

f. Once the ping is successful, boot the image from the TFTP server by entering the following command: boot tftp://tftp_server_ip_address / image_path_and_file_name

For example, to boot the Cisco IOS XE image cat4500e-universalk9.03.01.00 .SG.150-1.XO.bin located on the TFTP server 172.16.1.8, enter the following command:

rommon 3> boot tftp://172.16.1.8/tftpboot/cat4500e-universalk9.03.01.00 
.SG.150-1.XO.bin

Troubleshooting at the System Level

This section contains troubleshooting guidelines for system-level problems:

When the system is booting and running power-on diagnostics, do not reset the switch.

Ensure that you do not mix the serial and Ethernet cables plugged into the supervisor engine. The Fast Ethernet port (10/100 MGT) on the supervisor engine is inoperative. An Ethernet cable plugged into the Fast Ethernet port is active only in ROMMON mode.

Troubleshooting Modules

This section contains troubleshooting guidelines for modules:

When you hot insert a module into a chassis, always use the ejector levers on the front of the module to seat the backplane pins properly. Inserting a module without using the ejector levers might cause the supervisor engine to display incorrect messages about the module. For module installation instructions, refer to the Catalyst 4500 Series Module Installation Guide.

Whenever you connect an interface that has duplex set to autonegotiate to an end station or another networking device, ensure that the other device is configured for autonegotiation as well. If the other device is not set to autonegotiate, the port set to autonegotiate will remain in half-duplex mode, which can cause a duplex mismatch resulting in packet loss, late collisions, and line errors on the link.

Troubleshooting MIBs

For general information on MIBs, RMON groups, and traps, refer to the Cisco public MIB directory (http://www.cisco.com/public/sw-center/netmgmt/cmtk/mibs.shtml). For information on the specific MIBs supported by the Catalyst 4500 series switches, refer to the Catalyst 4000 MIB Support List located at ftp://ftp.cisco.com/pub/mibs/supportlists/cat4000/cat4000-supportlist.html.
