Release Notes for the Catalyst 4500E Series Switch, Cisco IOS XE Release 3.2.0XO


IOS XE 3.2.0XO —September 26, 2011

This release note describes the modifications and caveats for Cisco IOS XE 3.2.0XO software on the Catalyst 4500E series switch with Supervisor Engine 7L-E. This software is not supported on Supervisor Engine 7-E.

Cisco IOS XE Software Release 3.1.0 SG introduced the following primary hardware and software innovations. These innovations will also be available on Supervisor Engine 7L-E running Cisco IOS XE 3.2.0XO. Additionally, Supevisor Engine 7L-E running Cisco IOS 3.2.0XO has feature parity with Supervisor Engine 7-E running Cisco IOS XE 3.2.0SG.

The feature set for Supervisor Engine 7L-E matches that of Supervisor Engines 7-E. Details on feature support for Supervisor Engine 7-E can be found at the following URLs:

Cisco IOS XE Software and Naming Conventions

The Cisco Catalyst 4500E Series Switch runs 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.03.02.00.XO.150-2.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:

Cisco Software Activation Licensing

Starting with Cisco IOS Software Release 3.2.0XO, the Catalyst 4500E Supervisor Engine 7L-E supports the Cisco software activation licensing solution. Software Activation Licensing is already implemented on Cisco Catalyst 4500E Supervisor Engine 7-E.

As Figure 1 indicates, you can order Cisco Catalyst 4500E Supervisor Engine 7L-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 7L-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

Cisco IOS Software Packaging for IOS 3.2.0XO

We offer three different licenses: Enterprise Services, IP Base, and LAN Base.

The Enterprise Services supports all Cisco Catalyst 4500 Series software features based on Cisco IOS Software, including enhanced routing.

The IP Base does not support enhanced routing features such as Nonstop Forwarding (NSF), BGP, Enhanced Interior Gateway Routing Protocol (EIGRP), Open Shortest Path First (OSPF), Intermediate System-to-Intermediate System (IS-IS), Virtual Routing Forwarding (VRF-lite) and policy-based routing (PBR).

LAN Base is primarily focused on customer access and Layer 2 requirements and therefore many of the IP Base features are not required. The IP upgrade is available if at a later date you require some of those features.

We don't build separate images for each license type. Rather we have one universal image.

Limitations and Restrictions


Note Cisco IOS Release 3.2.0XO is only supported on the Supervisor Engine 7L-E. It is not supported on Supervisor Engine 7-E.


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

On the Supervisor Engine 7L-E, RET entries are reduced to 50K compared to entries of 102K on Supervisor Engine 7-E.

Supervisor Engine 7L-E uplink ports are non-blocking with a total bandwidth of 20-Gigabit.

Supervisor Engine 7L-E has two modes (One-Gigabit and Ten-Gigabit), which can be changed from Ten-Gigabit to One-Gigabit, or One-Gigabit to 10-Gigabit by entering the hw-module uplink select [gigabitethernet | tengigabitethernet] command and then reloading the shelf . By default, Supervisor Engine 7L-E is in Ten-Gigabit mode.

Supervisor Engine 7L-E supports two Ten-Gigabit ports in Ten-Gigabit mode and four One-Gigabit ports in One Gigabit mode non blocking. SFP+ transceivers are not be supported in 1 Gigabit mode.

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.

Upto 16K policers can be configured in hardware.

Up to 32K QoS/ACL (combined) entries can be configured in each direction.

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>
 
   

CSCtg93278

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

If the number of unique FNF monitors attached to target exceeds 2048 (one per target), a switch responds slowly:

Workarounds:

Decrease the number of monitors.

Attach the same monitor to multiple targets. CSCti43798

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

Workaround: Use the dir device command (for example, dir bootflash:) to obtain the correct file count. CSCti74130

If multicast is configured and you make changes to the configuration, Traceback and CPUHOG messages are displayed if the following conditions exist:

At least 10K groups and roughly 20K mroutes exist.

IGMP joins with source traffic transit to all the multicast groups.

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

With traffic running, entering clear ip mroute * with larger number of mroutes and over 6 OIFs will cause Malloc Fail messages to display.

You cannot clear a large number of mroutes at one time when traffic is still running.

Workaround: Do not clear all mroutes at once.

CSCtn06753

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.

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://tools.cisco.com/security/center/publicationListing


Open Caveats for Cisco IOS XE Release 3.2.0XO

This section lists the open caveats for Cisco IOS XE Release 3.2.0XO:

On the linecard WS-X4748-RJ45V+E, when a QoS policy-map with bandwidth sharing among different queues is applied on a port configured with a queue-limit under 64, traffic is not necessarily distributed among queues on the port in the configured ratio.

Workarounds:

Configure a queue-limit in the QoS policy greater than 64.

Do not configure queue-limit. This allows the software to compute the appropriate values.

CSCtl84549

If a policer is applied on a priority queue with the global qos account layer-all encapsulation command configured on the switch, the policing rate does not include Layer 1 header length.

Workaround: Perform the following steps:


Step 1 1. Remove the global qos account layer-all encapsulation command.

Step 2 2. Modify the policy map by removing the priority queue and policing under it.

Step 3 3. Recreate the priority queue and reconfigure the policer.

Step 4 4. Configure the global qos account layer-all encapsulation command.


CSCto58196

If you employ 61 interfaces and 20K mroutes, and you enter shut, then no shut on all the VLANs in your system while traffic is still running, MallocFail messages are observed.

This happens because of the large number of buffers needed for packet duplication to all the OIFs, and the resultant exhaustion of I/O memory.

Workaround: Use less than 61 VLANs or 10K multicast groups. CSCtq97167

A module that displays as InReset after you enter the no hw-mod mod x power command on the active supervisor engine displays as Seeprom Not Programmed in the output of the show mod command on the new active supervisor engine after switchover. Similarly, a module that displays as InReset after you enter the no hw-mod mod x power command displays as Seeprom Not Programmed in the output of the show mod command after removal and reinsertion of that module.

Workaround: This is a cosmetic issue.

After you enter the hw-mod mod x power command, the module boots successfully, and the output from the show mod command is as expected. CSCts55257

When a switch is configured for MAC Authentication Bypass (MAB) EAP and the AAA server requests EAP-TLS (as the EAP method) first, MAB fails.

Workarounds:

Configure the switch port for mab rather than mab eap.

Configure the AAA server to propose EAP-MD5 first rather than EAP-TLS for MAB EAP requests. CSCti78674

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.
