Feature Set Guidelines and Restrictions

These are the feature set guidelines and restrictions:

This product bulletin explains the feature sets used in Release 12.2(18)SXE and later releases:

http://www.cisco.com/en/US/prod/collateral/iosswrel/ps8802/ps5460/prod_bulletin0900aecd80281b17_ps708_Products_Bulletin.html

There are no 12.2SX boot loader images: none are required.

The releases includes strong encryption images. Strong encryption images are subject to U.S. and local country export, import, and use laws. The country and class of end users eligible to receive and use Cisco encryption solutions are limited. See this publication for more information:

http://www.cisco.com/web/about/doing_business/legal/global_export_trade/general_export/contract_compliance.html

Many TFTP server implementations cannot transfer 16 MB or larger files. To transfer 16 MB or larger files, you might need to use FTP or rcp. See this online publication for procedures:

http://www.cisco.com/en/US/docs/ios/12_2/configfun/configuration/guide/fcf008.html

These features are not supported in Release 12.2(18)SXD and later releases:

Apollo Domain

AppleTalk EIGRP

Banyan Vines

Exterior Gateway Protocol (EGP)

HP Probe

IEEE 802.10 VLANs

With releases earlier than Release 12.2(18)SXE, use of the EGP, BGP4, and IS-IS routing protocols requires the additional purchase of the InterDomain Routing Feature License (FR-IRC6), except when the price of the feature set already includes FR-IRC6.

In Release 12.2(17d)SXB and later releases, the price of any Cisco 7600 series router feature set (part numbers starting with "S763") includes FR-IRC6.

In Release 12.2(17b)SXA and later releases, the price of the "IP MPLS, IPv6, and BGP Feature Set" image (S733ZK9M-122* or S763ZK9M-122*) includes FR-IRC6.

clear hardware interface counters command.

CNS Interactive CLI—Network management applications can use the Cisco Networking Services (CNS) agents to manage network routers. The CNS agent provides the capability to send commands to a router from a programmable source. The CNS Interactive CLI feature introduces a new XML interface that allows you to send interactive commands to a router, such as commands that generate prompts for user input. A benefit of this feature is that interactive commands can be aborted before they have been fully processed. For example, for commands that generate a significant amount of output, the XML interface can be customized to limit the size of the output or the length of time allowed for the output to accumulate. The capability to use a programmable interface to abort a command before its normal termination (similar to manually aborting a command) can greatly increase the efficiency of diagnostic applications that might use this functionality. The new XML interface also allows for multiple commands to be processed in a single session. The response for each command is packaged together and sent in a single response event.

MQC: distribution of remaining bandwidth (supported only on WAN ports)—You configure QoS features on an interface using the modular QoS CLI (MQC). Using MQC, you create service policies for traffic classes and attach the policies to an interface. You can use MQC to specify how the remaining bandwidth is distributed among the interface or subinterface output queues. The remaining bandwidth is the available bandwidth left on an interface or subinterface after all guaranteed traffic is accounted for. The amount of remaining bandwidth available for use is determined by the excess information rate (EIR) configured for the queue.

The bandwidth remaining percent command allows you to configure the remaining bandwidth for output queues. The aggregate of all user-configured EIR bandwidth percentages cannot exceed 100 percent. If the aggregate of all remaining bandwidth is less than 100 percent, the remainder is evenly split among user queues (including the default queue) that do not have a remaining bandwidth percentage configured. The minimum EIR value of each output queue is 1.

This example shows how to use the bandwidth remaining percent command to distribute percentages of remaining bandwidth to various traffic classes in a policy map:

Router# configure terminal 
Enter configuration commands, one per line.  End with CNTL/Z. 
Router(config)# policy-map myPolicy 
Router(config-pmap)# class class-default 
Router(config-pmap-c)# bandwidth remaining percent 20 
Router(config-pmap-c)# class prec1 
Router(config-pmap-c)# bandwidth remaining percent 30 
Router(config-pmap-c)# class prec2 
Router(config-pmap-c)# bandwidth remaining percent 10 
Router(config-pmap-c)# bandwidth percent 50 
Router(config-pmap-c)# end 
Router# show policy-map myPolicy 
  Policy Map myPolicy 
    Class prec1 
         bandwidth remaining percent 30 
    Class prec2 
         bandwidth percent 50 
         bandwidth remaining percent 10 
    Class class-default 
         bandwidth remaining percent 20

Redundant Supervisor Engine 720 system high availability enhancement:

When a module is inserted or removed (OIR), a data integrity mechanism engages to ensure that no corrupt data is transferred on the backplane bus. This mechanism can cause a minimal amount of packet loss during OIR in a non-DFC-based system. For a DFC-based system, this mechanism does not have an effect on any traffic during OIR.

This feature causes the redundant supervisor engine to operate as a DFC-based module (the redundant supervisor engine operates as a non-DFC-based module by default), which protects the redundant supervisor engine from any packet loss during module OIR because it is disconnected from the backplane bus.

This feature only applies to a system with redundant supervisor engines and DFCs on all the modules. The supervisor engine uplink ports (on both standby and active) cannot be used with this configuration.

Single router mode with stateful switchover (SRM with SSO) redundancy mode for unicast traffic.


NoteAll releases that support SRM with SSO have been deferred.

Release 12.2(18)SXD and later releases do not support SRM with SSO.

Release 12.2(17b)SXA, rebuilds of Release 12.2(17b)SXA, Release 12.2(17d)SXB, and rebuilds of Release 12.2(17d)SXB support SRM with SSO on Supervisor Engine 720.

SRM with SSO is not supported on Supervisor Engine 2 in any release.

SRM with SSO redundancy mode does not support stateful switchover for multicast traffic. When a switchover occurs, all multicast hardware switching entries are removed and are then recreated and reinstalled in the hardware by the newly active MSFC.

SRM with SSO redundancy mode does not support MPLS. If you configure MPLS, use the RPR or RPR+ redundancy mode.

SRM with SSO redundancy mode does not support the IPsec VPN Acceleration services module (WS-SVC-IPSEC-1) in software releases where caveat CSCed17605 is not resolved (CSCed17605 is resolved in Release 12.2(17d)SXB and later releases).

The following modules do not maintain state when an SRM with SSO redundancy mode switchover occurs:

IPsec VPN Acceleration services module (WS-SVC-IPSEC-1)

WS-X6066-SLB-APC (CSM)

WS-SVC-FWM-1-K9 firewall services module

Hardware-assisted NetFlow Aggregation—See this publication:

http://www.cisco.com/en/US/docs/switches/lan/catalyst6500/ios/12.2SXF/native/configuration/guide/nde.html

Hardware-assisted Multiple-path Unicast Reverse Path Forwarding (Unicast RPF)—See this publication:

http://www.cisco.com/en/US/docs/switches/lan/catalyst6500/ios/12.2SXF/native/configuration/guide/secure.html

Hardware-assisted Network Address Translation (NAT) and Port Address Translation (PAT) for IPv4 unicast and multicast traffic—Note the following information about hardware-assisted NAT:

The PFC3A does not support NAT or PAT for UDP traffic.


Note PFC3B and PFC3BXL modes support NAT and PAT for UDP traffic.


The PFC3 does not support NAT or PAT for multicast traffic.

The PFC3 does not support NAT or PAT configured with a route map that specifies length.

The PFC3 does not support NAT or PAT configured with a route map that specifies static translations.

When you configure NAT or PAT and NDE on an interface, the PFC3 sends all traffic in fragmented packets to the MSFC3 to be processed in software. (CSCdz51590)

To configure NAT or PAT, refer to the Cisco IOS IP Configuration Guide, Release 12.2, "IP Addressing and Services," "Configuring IP Addressing," "Configuring Network Address Translation," at this URL:

http://www.cisco.com/en/US/docs/ios/12_2/ip/configuration/guide/1cfipadr.html

For information about configuring NAT or PAT with route maps, refer to this publication:

http://www.cisco.com/en/US/tech/tk648/tk361/technologies_q_and_a_item09186a00800e523b.shtml

To prevent a significant volume of NAT or PAT traffic from being sent to the MSFC, due to either a DoS attack or a misconfiguration, enter the mls rate-limit unicast acl {ingress | egress} command described in this publication:

http://www.cisco.com/en/US/docs/ios/security/command/reference/sec_m2.html#mls_rate-limit_unicast_acl

(CSCea23296)

Hardware-assisted IP-in-IP tunneling and generic routing encapsulation (GRE) tunneling—The PFC3 and DFC3s support the following tunnel commands:

tunnel destination

tunnel mode gre

tunnel mode ipip

tunnel source

tunnel ttl

tunnel tos

Other supported types of tunneling run in software on the MSFC3. The PFC3 does not provide hardware acceleration for tunnels configured with the tunnel key command.

The tunnel ttl command (default 255) sets the TTL of encapsulated packets.

The tunnel tos command, if present, sets the ToS byte of a packet when it is encapsulated. If the tunnel tos command is not present and QoS is not enabled, the ToS byte of a packet sets the ToS byte of the packet when it is encapsulated. If the tunnel tos command is not present and QoS is enabled, the ToS byte of a packet as modified by PFC QoS sets the ToS byte of the packet when it is encapsulated.

To configure GRE Tunneling and IP in IP Tunneling, refer to these publications:

http://www.cisco.com/en/US/docs/ios/12_2/interface/configuration/guide/icflogin.html

http://www.cisco.com/en/US/docs/ios/12_2/interface/command/reference/irfshoip.html

To configure the tunnel tos and tunnel ttl commands, refer to this publication:

http://www.cisco.com/en/US/docs/ios/12_0s/feature/guide/12s_tos.html

Note the following information about tunnels:

Each hardware-assisted tunnel must have a unique source address. Hardware-assisted tunnels cannot share a source address even if the destination addresses are different. Use secondary addresses on loopback interfaces or create multiple loopback interfaces. Failure to use unique source addresses may result in control plane failures when software path congestion occurs. (CSCdy72539)

Each tunnel interface uses one internal VLAN.

Each tunnel interface uses one additional router MAC address entry per router MAC address.

The PFC3A does not support any PFC QoS features on tunnel interfaces.

The PFC3B and PFC3BXL support PFC QoS features on tunnel interfaces.

In releases earlier than Release 12.2(18)SXE, the PFC3 does not support GRE tunnel encapsulation and de-encapsulation of multicast traffic.

The MSFC supports tunnels configured with egress features on the tunnel interface. Examples of egress features are output Cisco IOS ACLs, NAT and PAT (for inside to outside translation), TCP intercept, context-based access control (CBAC), and encryption.

Software Features from Earlier Releases

Hardware-assisted TCP intercept—See this publication:

http://www.cisco.com/en/US/docs/switches/lan/catalyst6500/ios/12.2SXF/native/configuration/guide/secure.html

Hardware-assisted policy-based routing (PBR) for route-map sequences that use the match ip address, set ip next-hop, and set ip default next-hop PBR keywords.

To configure PBR, refer to the Cisco IOS Quality of Service Solutions Configuration Guide, Release 12.2, "Classification," "Configuring Policy-Based Routing," at this URL:

http://www.cisco.com/en/US/docs/ios/12_2/qos/configuration/guide/qcfpbr_ps1835_TSD_Products_Configuration_Guide_Chapter.html

When configuring PBR, follow these guidelines and restrictions:

Releases earlier than Release 12.2(33)SXH use the syntax from Release 12.1, which supports preempt as a keyword for the standby priority command:

http://www.cisco.com/en/US/docs/ios-xml/ios/ipapp_fhrp/command/fhp-s2.html#GUID-5A848994-88AD-4B7D-A046-3F20AFD1EF9E

The PFC provides hardware support for PBR configured on a tunnel interface.

The PFC does not provides hardware support for PBR configured with the set ip next-hop keywords if the next hop is a tunnel interface.

If the MSFC address falls within the range of a PBR ACL, traffic addressed to the MSFC is policy routed in hardware instead of being forwarded to the MSFC. To prevent policy routing of traffic addressed to the MSFC, configure PBR ACLs to deny traffic addressed to the MSFC. (CSCse86399)

Any options in Cisco IOS ACLs that provide filtering in a PBR route map that would cause flows to be sent to the MSFC3 to be switched in software are ignored. For example, logging is not supported in ACEs in Cisco IOS ACLs that provide filtering in PBR route maps.

PBR traffic through switching module ports where PBR is configured is routed in software if the switching module resets. (CSCee92191)

Hardware support for directed broadcasts with the mls ip directed-broadcast command—See this publication:

http://www.cisco.com/en/US/docs/ios-xml/ios/interface/command/ir-l2.html#GUID-C2BDF601-4096-470F-A2D8-CF2B35F4A3E8
