Upgrading the Switch Software

These are the procedures for downloading software:

"Finding the Software Version and Feature Set" section

"Deciding Which Files to Use" section

"Archiving Software Images" section

"Upgrading a Switch by Using the CLI" section

"Recovering from a Software Failure" section


Note Before downloading software, read this section for important information.


Finding the Software Version and Feature Set

The Cisco IOS image is stored as a bin file in a directory that is named with the Cisco IOS release. The image is stored on the system board flash device (flash:).

You can use the show version privileged EXEC command to see the software version that is running on your switch.

You can also use the dir filesystem: privileged EXEC command to see the directory names of other software images that you might have stored in flash memory.

Deciding Which Files to Use

The upgrade procedures in these release notes describe how to perform the upgrade by using a combined tar file. This file contains the Cisco IOS image file. To upgrade the switch through the command-line interface (CLI), use the tar file and the archive download-sw privileged EXEC command.

Table 2 lists the software filename for this software release.

Table 2 Cisco IOS Software Image Files for Catalyst 3750 Metro Switches 

Filename

Description

c3750me-i5-tar.122-25.SEG3.tar

Cisco IOS image tar file.
This image has Layer 2+ and Layer 3 features.

c3750me-i5k91-tar.122-25.SEG3.tar

Cisco IOS cryptographic image tar file.
This image has the Kerberos, SSH1 , SSL2 , Layer 2+, and Layer 3 features.

1 SSH = Secure Shell

2 SSL = Secure Socket Layer


Archiving Software Images

Before upgrading your switch software, make sure that you have archived copies of the current Cisco IOS release and the Cisco IOS release to which you are upgrading. You should keep these archived images until you have upgraded all devices in the network to the new Cisco IOS image and until you have verified that the new Cisco IOS image works properly in your network.

Cisco routinely removes old Cisco IOS versions from Cisco.com. See Product Bulletin 2863 for more information:

http://www.cisco.com/en/US/partner/products/sw/iosswrel/ps5187/prod_bulletin0900aecd80281c0e.
Html

You can copy the bin software image file on the flash memory to the appropriate TFTP directory on a host by using the copy flash: tftp: privileged EXEC command.


Note Although you can copy any file on the flash memory to the TFTP server, it is time consuming to copy all of the HTML files in the tar file. We recommend that you download the tar file from Cisco.com and archive it on an internal host in your network.


You can also configure the switch as a TFTP server to copy files from one switch to another without using an external TFTP server by using the tftp-server global configuration command. For more information about the tftp-server command, see the "Basic File Transfer Services Commands" section of the Cisco IOS Configuration Fundamentals Command Reference, Release 12.2 at this URL:

http://www.cisco.com/en/US/products/sw/iosswrel/ps1835/products_command_reference_chapter09186a00800ca744.html#wp1018426

Upgrading a Switch by Using the CLI

This procedure is for copying the tar file to the switch. You copy the file to the switch from a TFTP server and extract the files. You can download an image file and replace or keep the current image.

Download the software from Cisco.com to your management station by following these steps:


Step 1 Use Table 2 to identify the file that you want to download.

Step 2 Download the software image file from Cisco.com.

Go to this URL and log in to download the appropriate files:

http://www.cisco.com/kobayashi/sw-center/sw -lan.shtml

To download the files, click the link for your switch platform, and then follow the links on the page to select the correct tar image file.

Step 3 Copy the image to the appropriate TFTP directory on the workstation, and make sure that the TFTP server is properly configured.

For more information, see Appendix B in the software configuration guide for this release.

Step 4 Log in to the switch through the console port or a Telnet session.

Step 5 Check your VLAN 1 configuration by using the show interfaces vlan 1 privileged EXEC command, and verify that VLAN 1 is part of the same network as the TFTP server. (Check the Internet address is line near the top of the display.)

Step 6 Download the image file from the TFTP server to the switch. If you are installing the same version of software that is currently on the switch, overwrite the current image by using this privileged EXEC command:

archive download-sw /overwrite /reload tftp:[[//location]/directory]/image-name.tar

The /overwrite option overwrites the software image in flash memory with the downloaded one.

The /reload option reloads the system after downloading the image unless the configuration has been changed and not been saved.

For //location, specify the IP address of the TFTP server.

For /directory/image-name.tar, specify the directory (optional) and the image to download. Directory and image names are case sensitive.

This example shows how to download an image from a TFTP server at 198.30.20.19 and to overwrite the image on the switch:

Switch# archive download-sw /overwrite tftp://198.30.20.19/c3750me-i5-tar.122-25.SEG3.tar

You can also download the image file from the TFTP server to the switch and keep the current image by replacing the /overwrite option with the /leave-old-sw option.


Recovering from a Software Failure

Switch software can be corrupted during an upgrade, by downloading the wrong file to the switch, and by deleting the image file. In all of these cases, the switch does not pass the power-on self-test (POST), and there is no connectivity. You can use the Xmodem protocol to recover from these failures.

For detailed recovery procedures, see the "Troubleshooting" chapter in the software configuration guide for this release.

Installation Notes

You can assign IP information to your switch by using these methods:

The Express Setup program as described in the Catalyst 3750 Metro Switch Getting Started Guide.

The CLI-based setup program as described in the Catalyst 3750 Metro Switch Hardware Installation Guide.

The DHCP-based autoconfiguration as described in the Catalyst 3750 Metro Switch Software Configuration Guide.

Manually assigning an IP addresses described in the Catalyst 3750 Metro Switch Software Configuration Guide.

Limitations and Restrictions

You should review this section before you begin working with the switch. These are known limitations that will not be fixed, and there is not always a workaround. Some features might not work as documented, and some features could be affected by recent changes to the switch hardware or software.

Configuration

These are the configuration limitations:

A static IP address might be removed when the previously acquired DHCP IP address lease expires.

This problem occurs under these conditions:

When the switch is booted without a configuration (no config.text file in flash memory).

When the switch is connected to a DHCP server that is configured to give an address to it (the dynamic IP address is assigned to VLAN 1).

When an IP address is configured on VLAN 1 before the dynamic address lease assigned to VLAN 1 expires.

The workaround is to reconfigure the static IP address. (CSCea71176)

On a switch running Cisco IOS Release 12.1(14)AX, when the show interface privileged EXEC is entered on a port that is running IEEE 802.1Q, inconsistent statistics from ports running IEEE 802.1Q might be reported.

The workaround is to upgrade to Cisco IOS Release 12.2(25)EY or later. (CSCec35100)

When you change a port from a nonrouted port to a routed port or the reverse, the applied auto-QoS setting is not changed or updated when you verify it by using the show running interface or show mls qos interface user EXEC commands.

These are the workarounds:

1. Disable auto-QoS on the interface.

2. Change the routed port to a nonrouted port or the reverse.

3. Re-enable auto-QoS on the interface. (CSCec44169)

The DHCP snooping binding database is not written to flash or a remote file in any of these situations:

When the Network Time Protocol (NTP) is configured, but the NTP clock is not synchronized. You can check the clock status by entering the show NTP status privileged EXEC command and verifying that the network connection to the NTP server and peer work correctly.

The DHCP snooping database file is manually removed from the file system. After enabling the DHCP snooping database by configuring a database URL, a database file is created. If the file is removed manually from the file system, the DHCP snooping database does not create another database file. You need to disable the DHCP snooping database and enable it again to create the database file.

The URL for the configured DHCP snooping database was replaced because the original URL is not accessible. The new URL might not take effect after the timeout of the old URL.

No workaround is necessary; these are the designed behaviors. (CSCed50819)

When dynamic ARP inspection is enabled on a switch or switch stack, ARP and RARP packets greater than 2016 bytes are dropped by the switch or switch stack. This is a hardware limitation.

However, when dynamic ARP inspection is not enabled and jumbo MTU is configured, ARP and RARP packets are correctly bridged in hardware. (CSCed79734)

When connected to some third-party devices that send early preambles, a switch port operating at 100 Mbps full duplex or 100 Mbps half duplex might bounce the line protocol up and down. The problem is observed only when the switch is receiving frames.

The workaround is to configure the port for 10 Mbps and half duplex or to connect a hub or a nonaffected device to the switch. (CSCed39091)

Dynamic ARP inspection log entries might be lost after a switch failure. Any log entries that are still in the log buffer (have not been output as a system message) on a switch that fails will be lost.

When you enter the show ip arp inspection log privileged EXEC command, the log entries from all switches in the stack are moved to the switch on which the command was entered.

There is no workaround. (CSCed95822)

When port security is enabled on an interface in restricted mode and the switchport block unicast interface command has been entered for that interface, MAC addresses are incorrectly forwarded when they should be blocked.

The workaround is to enter the no switchport block unicast interface configuration command for that specific interface. (CSCee93822)

The Catalyst 3750 Metro switch does not learn its own MAC address on Layer 2 interfaces. For example: Ports 1/0/1 and 1/0/2 belong to VLAN x, port 1/0/3 is a Layer 3 port with an IP address that belongs to the subnet of VLAN x, and ports 1/0/2 and 1/0/3 are connected. In this case, a host connected to port 1/0/1 cannot ping port 1/0/3. The switch does not update the CAM table and does not use the MAC address of port 1/0/3 in the CAM table for port 1/0/2.

The workaround is to statically configure the MAC address of port 1/0/3 in the CAM table of the switch bound to port 1/0/2 by using the mac address-table static mac-addr vlan vlan-id interface fastethernet1/0/2 global configuration command. (CSCee87864)

A traceback error occurs if a crypto key is generated after an SSL client session.

There is no workaround. This is a cosmetic error and does not affect the functionality of the switch. (CSCef59331)

When enhanced services (ES) interfaces in an EtherChannel are carrying Multiprotocol Label Switching (MPLS) traffic and more routes are configured than are supported in the SDM template, messages similar to the following might appear when the interface is shut down and brought back up:

2d20h: %PLATFORM_UCAST-3-LB: PI<->PD handles out of sync for Adj 222.1.1.1 LB -Traceback= 252620 A919CC A847E0 A85BE0 A927FC AA2D28 A965E0 A89C08 A78744 B08F48 ADF504 ADDC4C AE3460 AD25CC B94AA0 B94F20

There is no workaround. (CSCeh13477)

Ethernet

This is the Ethernet limitation:

SNAP-encapsulated IP packets are dropped without an error message being reported at the interface. The switch does not support SNAP-encapsulated IP packets. There is no workaround. (CSCdz89142)

Fallback Bridging

These are the fallback bridging limitations:

If a bridge group contains a VLAN that has a static MAC address configured, all non-IP traffic in the bridge group with this MAC address destination is sent to all ports in the bridge group.

The workaround is to remove the VLAN from the bridge group or to remove the static MAC address from the VLAN. (CSCdw81955)

Known unicast (secured addresses) are flooded within a bridge group under this condition: If secure addresses are learned or configured on a port and the VLAN on this port is part of a bridge group, non-IP traffic destined to the secure addresses is flooded within the bridge group.

The workaround is to disable fallback bridging. To remove an interface from a bridge group and to remove the bridge group, use the no bridge-group bridge-group interface configuration command. Another workaround is to disable port security on all ports in all VLANs participating in fallback bridging by using the no switchport port-security interface configuration command. (CSCdz80499)

HSRP

These are the Hot Standby Routing Protocol (HSRP) limitations:

When the active switch fails in a switch cluster that uses HSRP redundancy, the new active switch might not contain a full cluster member list.

The workaround is to ensure that the ports on the standby cluster members are not in the spanning-tree blocking state. To verify that these ports are not in the blocking state, see the "Configuring STP" chapter in the software configuration guide. (CSCec76893)

HSRP does not function on multiprotocol label switching (MPLS) interfaces.

There is no workaround. Do not configure HSRP on MPLS interfaces. (CSCeg76540)

IP

These are the IP limitations:

The switch does not create an adjacency table entry when the Address Resolution Protocol (ARP) timeout value is 15 seconds and the ARP request times out.

The workaround is to set an ARP timeout value higher than 120 seconds. (CSCea21674)

When the rate of received DHCP requests exceeds 2,000 packets per minute for a long time, the response time might be slow when you are using the console.

The workaround is to use rate limiting on DHCP traffic to prevent a denial of service attack from occurring. (CSCeb59166)

IP Telephony

These are the IP telephony limitations:

Some access point (AP)-350 devices are incorrectly discovered as IEEE 802.3af Class 1 devices. These APs should be discovered as Cisco pre-standard devices. The show power inline user EXEC command shows the AP-350 as an IEEE Class 1 device.

The workaround is to power the AP by using an AC wall adaptor. (CSCin69533)

After changing the access VLAN on a port that has IEEE 802.1x enabled, the IP phone address is removed. Because learning is restricted on IEEE 802.1x capable ports, it takes approximately 30 seconds before the address is relearned.

There is no workaround. (CSCea85312)

MAC Addressing

This is the MAC addressing limitation:

When a MAC address is configured for filtering on the internal VLAN of a routed port, incoming packets from the MAC address to the routed port are not dropped. (CSCeb67937)

MPLS and EoMPLS

These are the multiprotocol label switching (MPLS) and Ethernet over MPLS (EoMPLS) limitations:

Port-based Ethernet over Multiprotocol Label Switching (EoMPLS) sessions do not function if the incoming port is configured as an Inter-Switch Link (ISL) trunk.

The workaround is to configure the incoming ports as an IEEE 802.1Q trunk or as an access port. (CSCeb44014)

The display for the show mpls ldp neighbor ipaddr-of-neighbor detail user EXEC command always shows the targeted hello holdtime value as infinite.

The workaround is to use the show mpls ldp parameter user EXEC command to see the configured value. (CSCeb76775)

When MPLS is enabled, traceroute is not supported.

There is no workaround. (CSCec13655)

When an ES port is configured as a trunk port and the switch is using VLAN-based EoMPLS, if the VLAN has been cleared from the trunks on the ES ports, packets destined to IP addresses 224.0.0.xxx might not be sent over the EoMPLS tunnel.

The workaround is to allow the EoMPLS VLAN on the trunk on the ES ports. (CSCsc42814)

Multicasting

These are the multicasting limitations:

The switch does not support tunnel interfaces for unicast routed traffic. Only Distance Vector Multicast Routing Protocol (DVMRP) tunnel interfaces are supported for multicast routing.

Nonreverse-path forwarded (RPF) IP multicast traffic to a group that is bridged in a VLAN is leaked onto a trunk port in the VLAN even if the port is not a member of the VLAN group, but it is a member in some other VLAN group. Unnecessary traffic is sent on the trunk port and needlessly reduces the bandwidth of the port.

There is no workaround because non-RPF traffic is continuous in certain topologies. As long as the trunk port is a member on a trunk port in at least one VLAN, this problem for the non-RPF traffic occurs. (CSCdu25219)

If the number of multicast routes and Internet Group Management Protocol (IGMP) groups are more than the maximum number in the Switch Database Management (SDM) template shown with the show sdm prefer global configuration command, the traffic received on unknown groups is flooded in the received VLAN even though the show ip igmp snooping multicast-table privileged EXEC command output shows otherwise.

The workaround is to reduce the number of multicast routes and IGMP snooping groups to less than the maximum supported value. (CSCdy09008)

IGMP filtering is applied to packets that are forwarded through hardware. It is not applied to packets that are forwarded through software. Hence, with multicast routing enabled, the first few packets are sent from a port even when IGMP filtering is set to deny those groups on that port.

There is no workaround. (CSCdy82818)

When you use the ip access-group interface configuration command with a router access control list (ACL) to deny access to a group in a VLAN, multicast data to the group that is received in the VLAN is always flooded in the VLAN regardless of IGMP group membership in the VLAN. This provides access to directly connected clients, if any, in the VLAN.

The workaround is to not apply a router ACL configured to deny access to a VLAN interface. Apply the security through other means; for example, apply VLAN maps to the VLAN instead of using a router ACL for the group. (CSCdz86110)

(Catalyst 3750 switches) When IP Protocol-Independent Multicast (PIM) is enabled on a tunnel interface, the switch incorrectly displays the Multicast is not supported on tunnel interfaces error message. IP PIM is not supported on tunnel interfaces.

There is no workaround. (CSCeb75366)

If an IGMP report packet has two multicast group records, the switch removes or adds interfaces depending on the order of the records in the packet:

If the ALLOW_NEW_SOURCE record is before the BLOCK_OLD_SOURCE record, the switch removes the port from the group.

If the BLOCK_OLD_SOURCE record is before the ALLOW_NEW_SOURCE record, the switch adds the port to the group.

There is no workaround. (CSCec20128)

When IGMP snooping is disabled and you enter the switchport block multicast interface configuration command, IP multicast traffic is not blocked.

The switchport block multicast interface configuration command is only applicable to non-IP multicast traffic.

There is no workaround. (CSCee16865)

Incomplete multicast traffic can be seen under either of these conditions:

You disable and then re-enable IP multicast routing on an interface.

A switch mroute table temporarily runs out of resources and recovers later.

The workaround is to enter clear ip mroute privileged EXEC command on the interface. (CSCef42436)

When more multicast groups are configured than are supported by the selected Switch Database Management (SDM) template, Layer 2 multicast traffic is flooded on one or more multicast groups.

There is no workaround. (CSCef67261)

QoS

These are the QoS limitations:

Some switch queues are disabled if the buffer size or threshold level is set too low with the mls qos queue-set output global configuration command. The ratio of buffer size to threshold level should be greater than ten to avoid disabling the queue.

The workaround is to choose compatible buffer sizes and threshold levels. (CSCea76893)

When traffic with different class of service (CoS) values is sent into a IEEE 802.1Q tunnel, only the CoS 0 statistics increment in the show mls qos interface user EXEC command display.

There is no workaround. (CSCeb75230)

The bandwidth interface configuration command is not supported at the interface level, but it appears in the CLI.

There is no workaround. (CSCeb80223)

The random-detect interface configuration command is not supported at the interface level, but it appears in the CLI.

There is no workaround. (CSCeb80300)

The display for the show policy-map interface user EXEC command shows zeros for the counters associated with class-map match criteria.

There is no workaround. (CSCec08205)

The priority policy-map class configuration command cannot be configured for the default traffic class in a policy map.

The workaround is to configure explicit matches for traffic that requires priority treatment. (CSCec38901)

Modifying a QoS class within a very large service policy that is attached to an ES port can cause high CPU utilization and an unresponsive CLI for an excessive period of time.

The workaround is to detach the service policy from the port while making the modifications and then to re-attach the service policy. (CSCec75945)

When packets are queued for egress on an ES port due to the application of a QoS service policy, they consume packet buffer memory on the switch. If many queues are simultaneously congested and are unable to drain, packet loss can occur in either direction (ingress or egress) due to the lack of buffer memory.

If this becomes a problem, you can change switch behavior by using the queue-limit policy-map class configuration command at the class level to set shorter queue depths. Each shaper has an associated buffer queue with a default depth of 128 packets.

For example:

Switch(config)# policy-map cos2-policy
Switch(config-pmap)# class cos2
Switch(config-pmap-c)# bandwidth 50000
Switch(config-pmap-c)# queue-limit 32

The point at which buffer memory is exhausted depends on the number of queues, the sizes of the queued packets, and whether or not the traffic pattern being sent to the switch allows the queues to drain at all.

Upgrading your switch to Cisco IOS Release 12.2(25)EY or later greatly reduces the possibility of this situation happening, although it can still occur with some configurations and traffic patterns. (CSCed83886)

When auto-QoS is enabled on the switch, priority queuing is not enabled. Instead, the switch uses shaped round robin (SRR) as the queuing mechanism. The auto-QoS feature is designed on each platform based on the feature set and hardware limitations, and the queuing mechanism supported on each platform might be different.

There is no workaround. (CSCee22591)

Routing

These are the routing limitations:

The switch does not support tunnel interfaces for unicast routed traffic. Only Distance Vector Multicast Routing Protocol (DVMRP) tunnel interfaces are supported for multicast routing.

A route map that contains an ACL with a DSCP clause cannot be applied to a Layer 3 interface. The switch rejects this configuration and issues an error message that shows that the route map is unsupported.

There is no workaround. (CSCea52915)

A spanning-tree loop might occur if all of these conditions are true:

Port security is enabled with the violation mode set to protected.

The maximum number of secure addresses is less than the number of switches connected to the port.

There is a physical loop in the network through a switch whose MAC address has not been secured, and its BPDUs cause a secure violation.

The workaround is to change any one of the listed conditions. (CSCed53633)

SPAN and RSPAN

These are the SPAN and Remote SPAN (RSPAN) limitations:

An egress SPAN copy of routed unicast traffic might show an incorrect destination MAC address on both local and remote SPAN sessions. This limitation does not apply to bridged packets. The workaround for local SPAN is to use the replicate option.

There is no workaround for a remote SPAN session. This is a hardware limitation. (CSCdy72835)

Egress SPAN routed packets (both unicast and multicast) show the incorrect source MAC address. For remote SPAN packets, the source MAC address should be the MAC address of the egress VLAN, but instead the packet shows the MAC address of the remote SPAN (RSPAN) VLAN. For local SPAN packets with native encapsulation on the destination port, the packet shows the MAC address of VLAN 1. This problem does not appear with local SPAN when the encapsulation replicate option is used and does not apply to bridged packets.

The workaround is to use the encapsulate replicate keywords in the monitor session global configuration command. This is a hardware limitation. (CSCdy81521)

During periods of very high traffic and when two RSPAN source sessions are configured, the VLAN ID of packets in one RSPAN session might overwrite the VLAN ID of the other RSPAN session. Packets intended for one RSPAN VLAN are incorrectly sent to the other RSPAN VLAN. This problem does not affect RSPAN destination sessions.

The workaround is to configure only one RSPAN source session. (CSCea72326)

The egress-SPAN data rate might degrade when fallback bridging or multicast routing is enabled. The amount of degradation depends on the processor loading. Typically, the switch can process egress-SPAN at up to 40,000 packets per second (64-byte packets). When the total traffic being monitored is below this limit, there is no degradation. However, if the traffic exceeds the limit, only a portion of the source stream is monitored. When this occurs, this console message appears: Decreased egress SPAN rate.

In all cases, normal traffic is not affected; the degradation limits only how much of the original source stream can be monitored. If fallback bridging and multicast routing are disabled, egress-SPAN monitoring is not degraded.

There is no workaround. If possible, disable fallback bridging and multicast routing. If possible, use ingress-SPAN to observe the same traffic. (CSCeb01216)

Some IGMP report and query packets with IP options might not be ingress-span monitored. Packets that are susceptible to this problem are IGMP packets with 4 bytes of IP options (IP header length of 24). Examples of such packets are IGMP reports and queries having the router alert IP option. Ingress-span monitoring of such packets is not accurate and can vary with traffic rate. Typically, very few or none of these packets are monitored.

There is no workaround. (CSCeb23352)

Cisco Discovery Protocol (CDP), VLAN Trunking Protocol (VTP), and Port Aggregation Protocol (PAgP) packets received from a SPAN source are not sent to the destination interfaces of a local SPAN session.

The workaround is to use the monitor session session_number destination {interface interface-id encapsulation replicate} global configuration command for a local SPAN session. (CSCed24036)

Trunking

These are the trunking limitations:

The switch treats frames received with mixed encapsulation (IEEE 802.1Q and Inter-Switch Link [ISL]) as frames with FCS errors, increments the error counters, and causes the port LED to blink amber. This happens when an ISL-unaware device receives an ISL-encapsulated packet and forwards the frame to an IEEE 802.1Q trunk interface.

There is no workaround. (CSCdz33708)

IP traffic with IP options set is sometimes leaked on a trunk port. For example, a trunk port is a member of an IP multicast group in VLAN X but is not a member in VLAN Y. If VLAN Y is the output interface for the multicast route entry assigned to the multicast group and an interface in VLAN Y belongs to the same multicast group, the IP-option traffic received on an input VLAN interface other than one in VLAN Y is sent on the trunk port in VLAN Y. This is because the trunk port is forwarding in VLAN Y, even though the port has no group membership in VLAN Y.

There is no workaround. (CSCdz42909)

For trunk ports or access ports configured with IEEE 802.1Q tagging, inconsistent statistics might appear in the show interfaces counters privileged EXEC command output. Valid IEEE 802.1Q frames of 64 to 66 bytes are correctly forwarded even though the port LED blinks amber, and the frames are not counted on the interface statistics.

There is no workaround. (CSCec35100).

When a trunk interface is converted to an IEEE 802.1Q tunnel, a traceback error message similar to the following might appear:

3d20h: %PLATFORM_UCAST-3-LB: PI<->PD handles out of sync for Adj 222.1.1.1 LB -Traceback= 252620 A9204C A84E60 A86260 A92E7C AA36A0 AA3520 A96C60 A8A288 A78DC4 B095C8

There is no workaround. This does not affect switch functionality. (CSCeh20081)

Tunneling

This is the tunneling limitation:

VLAN mappings can be configured on a per-interface basis. A different set of mappings can be configured on each ES interface. The per-interface VLAN mappings remain in effect even when the ES ports are bundled in an EtherChannel. For example, if you map Gigabit Ethernet 1/1/1 to VLAN 20 through VLAN 50 and Gigabit Ethernet 1/1/2 to VLAN 20 through VLAN 70, traffic on VLAN 20 leaving the switch through the ES port bundle should be load-balanced across the individual ES interfaces. However, some of that traffic is incorrectly translated to VLAN 50, and some is incorrectly translated to VLAN 70.

The workaround is to configure identical VLAN mappings on both ES ports if they are going to be bundled into an EtherChannel. (CSCec49520)

VLAN

These are the VLAN limitations:

If the number of VLANs times the number of trunk ports exceeds the recommended limit of 13,000, the switch can halt.

The workaround is to reduce the number of VLANs or trunks. (CSCeb31087)

A CPUHOG message sometimes appears when you configure a private VLAN. Enable port security on one or more of the ports affected by the private VLAN configuration.

There is no workaround. (CSCed71422)

When you apply a per-VLAN QoS per-port policer policy-map to a VLAN SVI, the second-level (child) policy-map in use cannot be re-used by another policy-map.

The workaround is to define another policy-map name for the second-level policy-map with the same configuration to be used for another policy-map. (CSCef47377)

Important Notes

These are the important notes related to this software release:

The behavior of the no logging on global configuration command changed in Cisco IOS Release 12.2(25)EY and later. In software releases earlier than Cisco IOS Release 12.2(25)EY, both of these command pairs disabled logging to the console:

the no logging on and then the no logging console global configuration commands

the logging on and then the no logging console global configuration commands

In Cisco IOS Release 12.2(18)SE and later, you can only use the logging on and then the no logging console global configuration commands to disable logging to the console. (CSCec71490)

Beginning with Cisco IOS Release 12.2(25)EY, ISL encapsulation is supported only on standard ports and not on ES ports. The ES ports support only IEEE 802.1Q encapsulation and the switchport trunk encapsulation interface configuration command is no longer available on these ports. When you are upgrading a switch from Cisco IOS Release 12.1(14)AX to Cisco IOS Release 12.2(25)EY or later, during the initial configuration process, the switchport trunk encapsulation option is rejected on ES ports, and an error message appears. You can ignore this error message. If you save the new configuration by using the copy running-config startup-config privileged EXEC command and later re-install the Cisco IOS Release 12.1(14)AX image, the trunk encapsulation method originally configured on ES ports is lost, and the ES ports use the default encapsulation method, which is to negotiate.

In Cisco IOS Release 12.1(14)AX and earlier, port-based EoMPLS sessions could only be configured on switch ports. In Cisco IOS Release 12.2(25)EY and later, port-based EoMPLS sessions can only be configured on routed ports.


Note This change is handled automatically during an upgrade to Cisco IOS 12.2(25)EY or later, but if a configuration is written to NVRAM and the switch is then reloaded with Cisco IOS 12.1(14)AX, the new-style configuration is lost.


Beginning with Cisco IOS Release 12.2(25)EY, you must specify the encapsulation type when using the xconnect interface configuration command.


Note This change is handled automatically during an upgrade to Cisco IOS 12.2(25)EY or later, but if a configuration is written to NVRAM and the switch is then reloaded with Cisco IOS 12.1(14)AX, the new-style configuration is lost.


In Cisco IOS Release 12.1(14)AX1, the switch supported point-to-point Layer 2 protocol tunneling, which was not documented in the Cisco IOS Release 12.1(14)AX software documentation. This information is in the Release Notes for the Catalyst 3750 Metro Switch, Cisco IOS Release 12.1(14) AX1 at this URL:

Open Caveats

These are the Cisco IOS severity-3 open configuration caveats in this software release:

CSCsd12172

If your switch is running Ethernet over multiprotocol label switching (EoMPLS) in Cisco IOS Release 12.2(25)SED, the service policy that is applied to the SVI might mark the traffic correctly but might police the traffic to a different value than the one defined in the service policy.

There is no workaround.

CSCsd79916

When IEEE 802.1x authentication is configured on a voice VLAN port, the switch does not forward traffic if the attached PC is configured for both machine authentication and user authentication.

An authenticated 802.1X port might not forward traffic in these conditions:

The port is assigned to a voice VLAN.

The PC is configured for both machine authentication and user authentication.

The machine-initiated and user-initiated authentications result in different VLANs being assigned to the port.

The workaround is to remove the voice VLAN configuration from the port or to configure the machine-authentication and user-authentication profiles to assign the same VLAN to the port.

CSCsd87350

When you enter the show policy-map interface interface-id input privileged EXEC command, the service policy counters might not be correct. The counters might show a zero and not increment even when traffic is passing through the policy map on the interface.

The workaround is to enter the no service-policy input policy-map-name interface configuration command, followed by the service-policy input policy-map-name command to remove and reapply the service policy to the interface. The counter then should begin to work correctly.

CSCsd97102

When you configure a hierarchical QoS service policy on an ES interface and then enter the show policy-map interface privileged EXEC command, the bridge protocol data units (BPDUs) shown in the output might be misclassified in a class with a Layer 3 match.

There is no workaround.

CSCsd97378

When a non-hierarchical service policy is attached to an ES interface, traffic classes, including access-group matches, cannot be dynamically added to the service policy. An error message appears and the class cannot then be removed from the policy as long as it is attached to the interface.

The workaround is to first remove the policy map from the ES port by entering the no service-policy input policy-map-name interface configuration command. You can then modify the policy map traffic class and reattach it to the port.

CSCse14774

If a switch is connected to a third-party router through an EtherChannel and the EtherChannel is running in Link Aggregation Control Protocol (LACP) mode, the interfaces in the EtherChannel might go down after you enter the switchport trunk native vlan vlan-id interface configuration command to change the native VLAN from VLAN 1 (the default) to a different VLAN ID.

These are the workarounds. You only need to do one of these:

Do not change the native VLAN ID from the default setting of VLAN 1.

If you need to change the native VLAN ID to a VLAN other than VLAN 1, do not run the EtherChannel in LACP mode, and change the mode to On by using the channel-group channel-group-number mode on interface configuration command.

CSCse21219

If a Putty client is used to change the configuration to a device with SSH, the switch might stop responding to incoming traffic, such as SSH, Telnet, or ping packets. The switch responds to traffic after the TCP session is reset, which can take 7 minutes.

Use one of these workarounds:

Use Putty Version 0.58.

Enter a SSH, telnet, or ping command on the console.

CSCse30660

When a hierarchical service policy is applied to a trunk interface, the way that the BPDUs are classified depends on whether or not the native VLAN on that trunk interface is explicitly added to the allowed VLAN list.

If the native VLAN is not explicitly in the allowed VLAN list, the BPDUs match a class configured to match that VLAN.

If the native VLAN is in the allowed VLAN list, the BPDUs are classified in the class default.

CSCea80105

When a Cisco IP Phone is connected to a switch, only the Voice VLAN (VVID) of the switch learns the MAC address of phone. This is the correct behavior.

In previous releases, the MAC address was learned on both the VVID and the Data VLAN (PVID). When the dynamic MAC addresses were removed (manually or automatically) either by a topology change or by enabling or disabling the port security or IEEE 802.1x feature, the MAC address of Cisco IP Phones MAC address was re-learned only on the VVID.

CSCeg36369

A Catalyst ME 3750 switch now correctly learns the source MAC address of a Cisco Discovery Protocol (CDP) frame entering on a port that has CDP disabled.

CSCei63394

When an IEEE 802.1x restricted VLAN is configured on a port and a hub with multiple devices is connected to that port, syslog messages are now generated because this is not a supported configuration. (Only one host should be connected to an IEEE 802.1x restricted VLAN port.)

CSCei80087

It is no longer necessary to detach and then reapply a hierarchical policy map to force changes to a VLAN level class-map to take effect.

CSCsb56438

There is no longer an extra index in the port table of the ciscoStpExtensions MIB that does not exist in the portCrossIndex MIB.

The Intermediate System-to-Intermediate System (IS-IS) routing protocol now correctly establishes adjacencies when it is enabled on the VLAN 1 interface.

CSCsc93768

The switch no longer fails when the VPN Routing and Forwarding (VRF) configuration is removed under these conditions:

VRF is removed by using the no ip vrf global configuration command.

Interfaces are configured in two or more VRFs.

One VRF has static address resolution protocols (ARPs) configured.

The VRF with static ARPs is removed first.

CSCsd13962

Configuration Change Logger

Unique Device Identifier (UDI) Enhancement

Configuration Change Logger

Beginning with this release, you can enable a configuration logger to keep track of configuration changes made with the CLI. When you enter the logging enable configuration-change logger configuration command, the log records the session, the user, and the command that was entered to change the configuration. You can configure the size of the configuration log from 1 to 1000 entries (the default is 100). You can clear the log at any time by entering the no logging enable command followed by the logging enable command to disable and reenable logging.

Use the show archive log config {all | number [end-number] | user username [session number] number [end-number] | statistics} [provisioning] privileged EXEC command to display the complete configuration log or the log for specified parameters.

The default is that configuration logging is disabled.

For information about the commands, see the Cisco IOS Configuration Fundamentals and Network Management Command Reference, Release 12.3 T at this URL:

http://www.cisco.com/en/US/products/sw/iosswrel/ps5207/products_command_reference_chapter09186a00801a8086.html#wp1114989

Beginning in privileged EXEC mode, follow these steps to enable configuration logging:

 
Command
Purpose

Step 1 

configure terminal

Enter global configuration mode.

Step 2 

archive

Enter archive configuration mode.

Step 3 

log config

Enter configuration-change logger configuration mode.

Step 4 

logging enable

Enable configuration change logging.

Step 5 

logging size entries

(Optional) Configure the number of entries retained in the configuration log. The range is from 1 to 1000. The default is 100.

Note When the configuration log is full, the oldest log entry is removed each time a new entry is entered.

Step 6 

end

Return to privileged EXEC mode.

Step 7 

show archive log config

Verify your entries by viewing the configuration log.

This example shows how to enable the configuration-change logger and to set the number of entries in the log to 500.

Switch(config)# archive 
Switch(config-archive)# log config
Switch(config-archive-log-cfg)# logging enable
Switch(config-archive-log-cfg)# logging size 500
Switch(config-archive-log-cfg)# end

This is an example of output for the configuration log:

Switch# show archive log config all

Unique Device Identifier (UDI) Enhancement

The show inventory [raw] user EXEC command allows you to display product identification (PID) information for all identifiable entities in the device. Beginning with this release, you can use the show inventory entity-name command to display a specific entity. The display shows the UDI, including PID, Version Identifier (VID), and Serial Number (SN) of that entity. See the show inventory command page that follows.

show inventory

Use the show inventory user EXEC command to display product identification (PID) information for the hardware.

show inventory [entity-name | raw] [ | {begin | exclude | include} expression]


Note If you enter show inventory ? in the CLI help, the entity-name keyword does not appear in this release of the software, although it is supported and you can enter an entity name.


Syntax Description

entity-name

(Optional) Display the specified entity. For example, enter the interface (such as gigabitethernet0/1) into which a small form-factor pluggable (SFP) module is installed.

raw

(Optional) Display every entity in the device.

| begin

(Optional) Display begins with the line that matches the expression.

| exclude

(Optional) Display excludes lines that match the expression.

| include

(Optional) Display includes lines that match the specified expression.

expression

Expression in the output to use as a reference point.

Command History

Release
Modification

12.2(25)SEG

This command was introduced.


Usage Guidelines

The command is case sensitive. With no arguments, the show inventory command produces a compact dump of all identifiable entities that have a product identifier. The compact dump displays the entity location (slot identity), entity description, and the unique device identifier (UDI), including PID, Version Identifier (VID), and Serial Number (SN) of that entity.

If there is no PID, no output appears when you enter the show inventory command.

Expressions are case sensitive. For example, if you enterexclude output, the lines that contain output are not displayed, but the lines that contain Output are displayed.

Examples

This is example output from the show inventory command:

Switch> show inventory
NAME: "1", DESCR: "ME-C3750-24TE"
PID:                   , VID:    , SN:

NAME: "GigabitEthernet1/1/2", DESCR: "1000BaseSX SFP"
PID:                     , VID:    , SN: A50015093

The Catalyst 3750 Metro switch includes partial support for Cisco IOS IP Service Level Agreements (IP SLAs) to provide advanced network service monitoring information and collect data pertaining to SLAs verification. The switch can initiate and reply jitter probes. However, the traffic does not follow the queuing configuration that is applied to customer traffic. All locally originated traffic always goes to the same egress queue on the switch port, regardless of the ToS setting for the IP SLAs probe. We recommend the use of an external shadow router to measure latency and packet drop rate (PDR) across the switch.

For performance testing purposes, this configuration was validated:

1. Two switches connected back-to-back.

2. No protocols running on the switch CPUs, including STP.

3. Jitter probe send and receive rate:

a. 50 bidirectional probes sent with each probe consisting of up to 50 packets sent at 1-second intervals.

b. Probes started with a 1-second stagger between each probe.

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

Reporting Security Problems in Cisco Products

Cisco is committed to delivering secure products. We test our products internally before we release them, and we strive to correct all vulnerabilities quickly. If you think that you might have identified a vulnerability in a Cisco product, contact PSIRT:

Emergencies — security-alert@cisco.com

An emergency is either a condition in which a system is under active attack or a condition for which a severe and urgent security vulnerability should be reported. All other conditions are considered nonemergencies.

Nonemergencies — psirt@cisco.com

In an emergency, you can also reach PSIRT by telephone:

1 877 228-7302

1 408 525-6532


Tip We encourage you to use Pretty Good Privacy (PGP) or a compatible product to encrypt any sensitive information that you send to Cisco. PSIRT can work from encrypted information that is compatible with PGP versions 2.x through 8.x.

Never use a revoked or an expired encryption key. The correct public key to use in your correspondence with PSIRT is the one linked in the Contact Summary section of the Security Vulnerability Policy page at this URL:

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

The link on this page has the current PGP key ID in use.

Submitting a Service Request

Using the online TAC Service Request Tool is the fastest way to open S3 and S4 service requests. (S3 and S4 service requests are those in which your network is minimally impaired or for which you require product information.) After you describe your situation, the TAC Service Request Tool provides recommended solutions. If your issue is not resolved using the recommended resources, your service request is assigned to a Cisco engineer. The TAC Service Request Tool is located at this URL:

http://www.cisco.com/techsupport/servicerequest

For S1 or S2 service requests or if you do not have Internet access, contact the Cisco TAC by telephone. (S1 or S2 service requests are those in which your production network is down or severely degraded.) Cisco engineers are assigned immediately to S1 and S2 service requests to help keep your business operations running smoothly.

To open a service request by telephone, use one of the following numbers:

Asia-Pacific: +61 2 8446 7411 (Australia: 1 800 805 227)
EMEA: +32 2 704 55 55
USA: 1 800 553-2447

Definitions of Service Request Severity

To ensure that all service requests are reported in a standard format, Cisco has established severity definitions.

Severity 1 (S1)—Your network is "down," or there is a critical impact to your business operations. You and Cisco will commit all necessary resources around the clock to resolve the situation.

Severity 2 (S2)—Operation of an existing network is severely degraded, or significant aspects of your business operation are negatively affected by inadequate performance of Cisco products. You and Cisco will commit full-time resources during normal business hours to resolve the situation.

Severity 3 (S3)—Operational performance of your network is impaired, but most business operations remain functional. You and Cisco will commit resources during normal business hours to restore service to satisfactory levels.

Severity 4 (S4)—You require information or assistance with Cisco product capabilities, installation, or configuration. There is little or no effect on your business operations.
