New Features and Enhancements in Release 5.0.00

SRME/B

This new card will be an enhancement of the existing SRME card. Like the SRME, the SRME/B is a single-height card, and the two key functions it supports are: T3 interface along with OC-3, as well as BERT, bulk distribution and 1:N redundancy.

There can be up to 2 SRME/Bs per service bay, for a total of up to 4 SRME/Bs per MGX node. With the MGX 8850, the SRME/Bs in slots 15 and 16 support Service Modules in the upper service bay with BERT, bulk distribution and 1:N redundancy, and the SRME/Bs in slots 31 and 32 provide a similar service to the lower bay. With the MGX 8830, a comparable support is provided by SRME/Bs installed in slots 7 and 14.

Platforms

The feature is supported on:

MGX 8850 (PXM45)

MGX 8850 (PXM1E)

MGX 8830

AXSM-16-155-XG

The AXSM-16-155-XG Service Module addresses the need for enhanced traffic management capabilities over a higher OC-3c/STM-1 port density. This card will provide a different option to customers currently using the AXSM/B and AXSM/E OC-3c/STM-1 modules.

This new AXSM-XG Service Module will support 124K connections and will provide a full 2.4 Gbps of usable bandwidth per card.

Platforms

This feature is supported on:

MGX 8850 (PXM45)

MGX 8950

AIS Delay, Deroute Delay, Absolute Grooming

AIS Delay: Sending AIS/Abit during grooming may cause customer to revert to backup facilities. The AIS Delay feature provides a mechanism to delay AIS/Abit up to a configurable time. This feature was supported in Release 4.0. The SNMP support for this feature is provided in Release 5.0.

Deroute Delay: This feature will allow some time for a failed NNI interface to recover at the physical layer, before the switch declares it as failed (due to LOS, LOF, AIS-P, and so forth). This feature was supported in Release 4.0. The SNMP support for this feature is provided in Release 5.0

Absolute Grooming This feature will allow grooming to use an absolute cost threshold in addition to percentage of threshold change. The feature was supported in 4.0. In this release, grooming thresholds have been enhanced to support AW, CTD, and CDV metrics on a per service category basis for both Percentage and Absolute Grooming Thresholds. The SNMP support for this feature is provided in Release 5.0.

Platforms

This feature is supported on:

MGX 8850 (PXM45)

MGX 8950

MGX 8850 (PXM1E)

MGX 8830 (PXM1E)

Soft Reroute

Currently during grooming process the connection is derouted and rerouted when the connection is on a PNNI routed path. Even when the better/desired route is unavailable the connection shall be derouted and rerouted using PNNI. The soft reroute feature provides the user to move a routed SPVC/P from an incumbent working path to a new path with minimal loss of traffic. The existing connection along the path is not derouted until connection has been established on along a new path. Thus soft route brings higher connection availability. Enhanced grooming process shall use soft reroute to route a connection on better/desired PNNI path

QoS is preserved/improved by soft reroute for the rerouting connection.

Platforms

This feature is supported on:

MGX 8850 (PXM45)

MGX 8950

MGX 8850 (PXM1E)

MGX 8830 (PXM1E)

Point to Multipoint Support on PXM1E

MGX 8830 (PXM1E) and MGX 8850 (PXM1E) can be used in conjunction with an MGX (PXM45) in a network to support point-to-multipoint connections. The PXM45 hardware performs cell replication to multiple destination endpoints. The MGX with PXM1E functions as the originating node or as a via node of a point-to-multipoint connection. If necessary, MGX with PXM1E can be enabled to perform limited branching or cell replication to support multiple parties or leaves of a point-to-multipoint connection.

Point-to-multipoint connection is for applications such as data and video broadcasts and LAN emulation. This feature supports new real-time and non-real-time applications, for example: distance-learning, live broadcasts, conferencing applications, financial data delivery (stock market feeds), white board collaboration, video conferencing, data and file replication, and video on demand.

Network efficiency is enhanced since multiple streams of data can be replaced with a single transmission up to the multicast distribution point, typically a MGX with PXM45. Point-to-multipoint differs from broadcast in the sense that it will attempt to replicate packets only to specific destination endpoints in the multicast distribution tree versus sending packets to each endpoint as in straight broadcast.

Platforms

This feature is supported on:

MGX 8850 (PXM1E)

MGX 8830 (PXM1E)

Enhancements to Route Optimization

The feature enables the CWM to support scheduled/on-demand route optimization. The existing commands are also enhanced to support "Orderly Grooming" and allow users to schedule the route optimization based on "day(s) of the week". Trunk utilization factor is introduced to prevent connections from grooming to heavily loaded trunks.

The enhancements to route optimization enables customers to administer route optimization of connections from the Management station. The route optimization enhancements also include orderly grooming and trunk utilization factor for effectively managing the network.

Platforms

This feature is supported on:

MGX 8850 (PXM45)

MGX 8950

MGX 8850 (PXM1E)

MGX 8830 (PXM1E)

Priority Bumping

Priority Bumping involves derouting of other lower priority calls (lower than the incoming call priority) in order to free up resources so that the incoming higher priority call can be routed. Calls might have to be derouted on Ingress as well as Egress Interface to free up resources. Bumping can happen at Source, Via or destination nodes. This feature will work for SVCs as well as SPVCs. SVCs which do not have priority signalled from CPE/SAPI (in case of Voice Calls) will use the priority of the Ingress Interface.

Platform

This feature is supported on:

MGX 8850 (PXM45)

MGX 8950

MGX 8850 (PXM1E)

MGX 8830 (PXM1E)

Enhancements

The product enhancement requests (PERs) in Table 1 were introduced in Release 5.0.00.

Table 1 Product Enhancement Requests in Release 5.0.00 

Enhancement Number or Description
Purpose

Deroute Delay (5048)

See feature description.

Support in PNNI/SMs (AXSM-E, PXM1E) for the CLI commands "tstpndelay" and "cnfconseq" commands. (5494)

For connection fault isolation, MGX provides CLI commands tstpndelay, cnfconsegep, dspconsegep, delconsegep in earlier releases to debug the connection problem. This project adds the corresponding SNMP interfaces support and extends the tool to work on PXM1E uplink, AXSM-E, AXSM-XG cards, in addition to AXSM card and broadband SPVC supports.

AIS Delay, Absolute Grooming (6600)

See feature description.

Secure Remote Terminal Interface (6670)

This feature introduces Secure Shell (SSH) functionality on the MGX. SSH provides a secure way to transfer TCP/IP traffic to/from an MGX node, by encrypting all traffic.

TACACS+ for centralized user/password database (7056)

Prior to Release 5.0, each MGX switch maintained it's own authentication database and performed it's own authentication. In release 5.0, TACACS+ functionality allows setup of one or more centralized authentication servers. MGX switches will now be able to perform authentication against the centralized database making management easier. Also, prior to Release 5.0, MGX software provided five command privilege levels that could be assigned to a user to authorize execution of all commands allowed by the privilege level. There was no support for authorizing specific command execution on a per user basis. TACACS+ will allow customers to configure authorization for a user to execute specific commands.

SNMP support for Memory and CPU utilization statistics (6802)

This feature allows for access to historical and real-time data about Memory usage and CPU utilization statistics via an SNMP interface. Three MIBS will support the above: CISCO-PROCESS_MIB, CISCO-ENHANCED-MEMPOOL-MIB and CISCO-ATM-CONN-INFO-MIB.

POST, Online Diag, and HMM

POST, Online Diag, and HMM have been enhanced to ease usability and reliability. Commands have been modified and added. Starting in release 5.0.0, test failures shall result in recovery actions being taken.


Service Class Template (SCT) File Information

This section contains SCT file information for Release 5.0.00.

PXM1E

The Service Class Template (SCT) bundle in Release 5.0.00 includes updates:

PXM1E_SCT.PORT.5

PXM1E_SCT.PORT.6

The default SCTs provided with Release 5.0.00 are as follows:

SCT 5 - policing enabled. In general, this is for use on UNI ports.

SCT 6 - policing disabled. In general, this is for use on NNI ports.

The check sum for the SCT files are as follows

PXM1E_SCT.PORT.5.V1: Check sum is = 0xa287c4ee= 2726806766

PXM1E_SCT.PORT.6.V1: Check sum is = 0x79f6c93d= 2046216509

PXM1E_SCT.PORT.55.V1: Check sum is = 0x11a518f1= 296032497

Notes:

PXM1E does not support CARD SCT.

ABR VSVD parameters are not supported due to hardware limitation.

The above PXM1E SCT files apply to MGX 8850 (PXM1E) and MGX 8830

Use SCTs with larger vc thresholds configured for the VSI signalling service type. The maximum vc threshold value should be at least 50000 microseconds for the vsi signalling service type New SCTs 5,6 and 54, 55 (Cisco provided SCTs for the T3/E3, Combo cards and IMA group links respectively) have been released with minor version = 1. Custom SCTs need to upgrade to a new minor version if needed with the new recommended vc threshold values. It is possible to gracefully upgrade an SCT with minor version change without any traffic impact. Read the SCT config chapter of the configuration guide for more details on how to upgrade a SCT file to a new minor version.

Limitations, Restrictions, and Notes for 5.0.00

This section includes information about limitations, restrictions, and notes pertaining to MGX Release 5.0.00.

Upgrade from Release 5.0 is only from 3.0.25 and higher.

The VXSMs, when installed for the first time or after clearing the slot configuration, create default configuration. This creation of default configuration involves writing large amount of data to the hard disk in the node. So, when multiple VXSMs are installed simultaneously or the configuration of multiple VXSMs slots are cleared simultaneously, one or more VXSMs could fail to be installed. This results in following recommendations (refer to CSCed12646):

install VXSMs using setrev command one at a time. Install another VXSM after the earlier one is installed completely and is Active.

clear the VXSM slot configuration using clrsmcnf command (with no option where the slot primary software version is preserved) one at a time. Wait till the VXSM rebuilds after clearing the its slot configuration (without clearing the slot primary software version), before clearing the slot configuration of another VXSM slot.

The percentage trunk utilization with overbooking is calculated using the following formula: overbooked MaxCR - overbooked ACR) / overbooked MaxCR. This will occur when inter-operating with SES from Release 3.0.x and higher.


Note ACR = MaxCR - (trunk utilization / overbooking factor) and
overbooked ACR = ACR / overbooking factor
overbooked MaxCR = MaxCR / overbooking factor.


The overbooked ACR is calculated differently between MGX and SES.

On MGX, the bandwidth for all current connections on the port are considered overbooked when calculating the trunk utilization.

On the SES, the bandwidth for all current connections on the port are NOT considered overbooked when calculating the trunk utilization.

Therefore, the trunk utilization calculation is lower on the MGX than on the SES when there are existing connections on the port with an overbooking factor configured. This in turn yields a lower
percentage trunk utilization on the MGX compared to the SES.

PXM45(A) card is not supported in Release 5.0.00 and onwards.

It is not recommended to turn on complex node for physical nodes (the lowest level node), since this would increase memory usage but would not provide any benefits. Complex node should only be turned on for logical nodes.

AXSM-16-155-XG with MCC backcards

The users may see following scenario when the card to card APS is configured on one side but not the other side: The Protection Line Status in dspapslns or dspapsln will show "OK" if the other side has added the card redundancy, upped the line but not the APS. If the backcards are SFP backcards, the Protection Line Status will be "SF" in the same setup.

From CLI screen on the side of APS added, the only way to find out remote APS has been added or not is through the Receive chanfield and modefield in dspapsln. Here are the display based on the APS protocol configured:

For GR253

Receive k2 chanfield - Null Channel

Receive k2 modefield - Undefined

after adding remote APS (with MCC)

Receive k2 chanfield - Null Channel

Receive k2 modefield - UNI1+1 or Bi depending on mode

For ITU (or AnnexA)

Receive k2 chanfield - Null Channel

Receive k2 modefield - Undefined

after adding remote APS

Receive k2 chanfield - Null Channel

Receive k2 modefield - Undefined

For AnnexB

Receive k2 chanfield - Null Channel

Receive k2 modefield - Undefined

after adding remote APS

Receive k2 chanfield - Working Section 1 or 2

Receive k2 modefield - Undefined

Upgrading AXSM-XG card

When installing AXSM-XG cards into a node that has a release earlier than Release 4.0.15, all of the other cards in the node must be upgraded first to Release 5.0.

When configuring virtual interfaces (i.e., VUNI, VNNI, EVUNI, EVNNI), the physical interface must be of all one ATM header type, either UNI or NNI. Keep in mind that the signaling that is applied to a virtual port is independent of the actual virtual port ATM header. The only limit will be that the VPI value must be within the UNI ATM header limitations.

Upgrading the VISM-PR Image

If you are upgrading the VISM-PR image to Release 3.2.1x or later and the PXM1E or PXM45 image from Release 4.x or earlier to Release 5.x, first upgrade the VISM-PR cards. Then, upgrade the PXM1E or PXM45 cards in the same node.

Do not configure the new VISM features until you have fully upgraded the network. After you upgrade your network to PXM1E or PXM45 Release 5.x or later and VISM-PR to Release 3.2.1x or later, apply the standard upgrade process.

PXM1E Parity Errors

If CBC CBH RAM has parity error on active PXM1E card, and if there is no traffic passing on any connections, then PXM1E will not detect this parity error and will not switch over to the standby card. Also, all Service Module cards will reset. In a future release of MGX Release 5, the Online Diagnostics module will have a CellBus Parity test that will detect this condition and cause a switchover.

PXM1E Standby card still comes up when there is a QE TS RAM parity error. In future release of MGX Release 5, Online diagnostics module will detect this condition on the Standby and cause the card to reset

Upgrading to 5.0

Any invocation of 'reboot 0' from shellconn to reset a PXM card will result in an unconditional core dump on the card with reason "Reset From Shell". As a side effect, customers using the CLI command 'burnboot' to upgrade the PXM boot revision to Release 4.0.10 release from any older release will get a "Reset From Shell" Coredump while upgrading. This Coredump should be ignored. No future upgrades will be affected by this.

PNNI trunk down temporarily after upgrade from Release 4.0.12 to 5.0. This upgrade problem is only seen in ILMI enabled E-VNNI/E-VUNI ports. As part of CSCec79854 ILMI behavior for E-VNNI and E-VUNI was changed. ILMI will go down as max_vpi and max_vpi_bits are exchanged differently between a virtual interface and non-virtual interface. Workaround has been documented in the DDTS. (refer to anomaly CSCed44174)

Higher Level Logical Link Limits

The numbers of logical links in the higher levels of the PNNI hierarchy is limited to 30 per level when the complex node configuration is turned on. The limit is essential to reduce the processing time involved in finding the bypasses between the logical links. Whenever there is a significant change in bandwidth in one of the links within the peer group, the bypass calculation is triggered and the bypasses are usually found from one logical link to another. So if there are n logical links, the calculation involves the finding n*n bypasses. So if the number of logical links n is large, a lot of processing time is used for calculating the bypasses. So the number of logical links per level has to be limited to 30. The number can be controlled by configuring the appropriate number of aggregation tokens for the outside links for that peer group.

CLI Upgrade

During an upgrade when the standby card has a 3.0.23 release or later runtime firmware and the active card has a pre-4.0 runtime firmware version, there is no display output from standby when cc command is issued. The error message "Err: cliSipcPsrRead(): received oversized message" appears from the active card. The workaround for this:

1. If PXM, connect to the console port of the standby if need to access it.

2. Complete the upgrade so that both service modules are running the same version.

The number of input characters for the CLI has increased from 256 to 512 bytes to accommodate more than 32 input parameters in 4.0 release firmware. So, when standby is has 4.0 release firmware and active has pre 4.0 release firmware, the active is receiving 512 bytes, thus receiving the error message above.

Preferred Route

Preferred routes are not supported for connections with endpoints on RPM and VISM card types in Releases 4.0 and above. Upgrading a preferred routing configured connection from any Release 3.0.x will be non-graceful. In a future release, the configuration of the preferred route identifier information for each connection will be supported on the Service Module cards instead of on the PXM controller. During the upgrade, the preferred route identifier information for each connection will be lost and the preferred route identifier needs to be reprovisioned on the Service Module cards. Also, the preferred route table at the PXM controller will be lost. Connections that have already been routed with preferred routing will remain, and there will be no alarms for these connections.

If a node in the PNNI network is removed via physical decommissioning, and if any nodes in the network had some preferred routes that contain the removed node as one of the hops, the preferred route(s) must be deleted/modified manually. When a connection is routed on a route other than its preferred route and if the preferred route becomes available, the connection would not be automatically derouted to route back to its preferred route. The user has to deroute/reroute by using configuration commands (optrte, rrtcon, dncon/upcon etc.). QoS precedence over Preferred Route does not apply to MPG network (CSCdz40310). Preferred route configured with higher node ID cannot be blocked (CSCdz41145, CSCdz49001). Due to differences in physical port numbering, non-MGX nodes can only be the terminating nodes in a preferred route.

AXSM-32-T1E1-E and PXM1E-16-T1E1

IMA version fall back is part of IMA group operation. If a group is configured with version 1.1 and it is connected to a far end group which is configured with version 1.0, this group will fall back to version 1.0.

The IMA link LIF(Loss of IMA Frame) and LODS(Link Out of Delay Synchronization) defect integration times are configurable.

ATM layer configuration for line and IMA ports takes an additional parameter, AIS enable. It is enabled by default.

In T1 mode, payload scrambling is disabled by default and in E1 mode it is enabled by default on all lines and IMA groups.

Only 10 SVC calls/sec is guaranteed

FDL support for Loopback code detection is not supported

Far End Line Performance counters are supported only for E1. They are not supported for the T1 interface.

HMM support is not available for the IMA and the Framer devices. When there is switchover, it can take up to 3.5 seconds for the IMA groups to recover. Data is lost until the groups recover.

IMA Auto-restart(persistent RX IMA ID) feature is supported.

IMA group cannot have links from upper and lower bays together.

ITC clocking mode on IMA is not supported.

One way transmission delay of more than 500 msec on the T1/E1 IMA links is not supported

There is 5 ms fluctuation on IMA delay tolerance.

While the IMA group accumulated delay is being removed with "clrimadelay", the following applies:

Any changes to this IMA group configuration are temporarily blocked.

Any changes in the FE IMA links in this group can cause the NE IMA group to restart.

The VC and COSB thresholds are updated as and when the links are added/deleted from the IMA groups.

The thresholds for the connections added when there are N links in the group can differ from connections added when there are (N+1) links in the IMA group.

BERT is only supported on the T1 interfaces. It is not supported on E1 interfaces.

The port number in the pnport(shelf.slot:subslot.port:subport) could be a random number. The user should not interpret this number as line or IMA group number. Refer to DDTS CSCdy08500.

PNNI requires SCR=453 cells/sec and PCR=969 cells/sec for the control connection.

SSCOP requires of SCR=126 cells/sec and PCR= 2000 cells/sec.

Cell Bus Service Modules (formerly known as Narrow Band Service Module) and RPM-PR

When switchredcd is done and a PXM switchover (either through switchcc/resetcd on the PXM or due to a failure) happens at the same time (refer to anomaly CSCea36485):

Conditions: switchredcd is run from PXM Command Line to perform CBSM Switchover. PXM switches over (manual or automatic) before the SM switchover is completed.

Symptom: SM did not switchover after switchredcd

If the PXM switches over before the CBSM switchover completes, the following issues can be seen:

the SM Switchover may not be complete and the standby card will be in an indeterminate state. The dspcd command from PXM will still show it as 'standby' and later switchver (due to Active SM removal or reset) will fail, causing Loss of Traffic. The switchredcd command will also fail.

The switchredcd from PXM again will cause the failure since the standby SM will not be able to allocate memory.

Work round: Reset the standby Service Module card.

CBSM feature is not available for PXM45/A

CBSM (max dax con) 13,500 connections.

CBSM (max non-dax) 27,000 connections.

IGX Feeder

When an IGX is added as a feeder to a SES/BPX or MGX node, it will have a default node number, this node number may not be unique within the network. If it is not unique then it needs to be modified to a unique node number by issuing cli command "rnmnd <x>" where x should be unique with respect to all other auto-route nodes. To find the other node numbers, use cli command "dspnds +n". Failing to do so, CWM Databroker may have incorrectly formed hybrid connection database, the CWM GUI may show the connection as incomplete. IGX feeder is not support on AXSM-XG-16-155.

Policing Accuracy for PXM1E

There is a limitation regarding the policing accuracy for the PXM1E. The policing rate is defined as 50000000/PCR. If the PCR is comparable to the OC12 line rate (1412830), the policing rate parameter is a relative small number (50000000/1412830 = ~35.38996). Since integer division is performed, the decimal values are truncated. As a result, the policing parameter cannot be calculated accurately. Moreover, the policing rate parameter is stored in an exponent (5-bits) and mantissa (9-bits) format, so this format cannot represent a small number very accurately. Combining the above two factors, a 100% accurate policing parameter cannot be configured.

To ensure that the user gets the rate that they have specified, the software configures policing at the next larger rate which the hardware can support. For example, if we program a connection with PCR = 1400000, the software programs the actual policing rate to be 1428571. For a worst case scenario, if the user configures a VBR2 connection with a PCR of 1400010 and the ingress user traffic is 1428570, there won't be any policing because the ATM policing device would police at rate 1428571 only.

Maximum Threshold Accuracy for PXM45 and PXM1E

There is a limitation regarding the maximum threshold accuracy for the PXM45 and PXM1E. The Qbin threshold and VI rate are stored in the form of exponent and mantissa, and some accuracy is lost in expressing the real rate. In testing the thresholds, the lack of accuracy is compounded with both of the Qbin and VI rate (draining rate) and therefore we cannot calculate an exact 100% correct discard rate.

To ensure that the user gets the rate that they have specified, the software configures Qbin depth at the next larger rate which the hardware can support. As a result, Int. Cell Gap(ICG) and Relative Service Delay(RSD) are truncated.

PXM1E-Based Switches

The following notes apply to PXM1E based switches (that is, MGX 8850 (PXM1E) and MGX 8830):

Y-red is not supported on the MCC Electrical back card

For inter-card APS to work on the PXM1E-8-155, and one front card is missing or not available, both backcards have to be present. A front card cannot drive the alternate trunk-backcard when its own local trunk-backcard is absent.

MPLS controller is not supported on PXM1E.

PXM1E clock source is supported by VISM-PR, CESM, and AUSM cell bus service module cards. CESM and AUSM can provide one clock source, either primary or secondary.

Only SPVCs and SPVPs are supported on cell bus service modules. SVCs are not supported on CBSM (Cell Bus Service Module).

There is no bandwidth CACing support on the cell bus service modules, except for the RPM card, which is checked against the OC3 card rate. For example, for a given RPM, the bandwidth allocated to all connections may not exceed OC3 rate. Bandwidth CACing is supported on the PXM1E uplink port.

The maximum bandwidth to be distributed among cell bus service modules is ~ OC10 while traffic on the network interfaces on PXM1E can achieve true OC12 line rate.

Traffic should be balanced between the Cell Bus Controllers to achieve the OC-10 rate. The traffic should be distributed equally at a rate of about OC-5 on the two Cell Bus Controllers. The Cell Bus Controllers can't load share to achieve OC-10 with one Cell Bus set at an OC-6 rate, and another Cell Bus set at an OC-4 rate. Anything above OC-6 will be dropped. However, if only one Cell Bus Controller is used and the other Cell Bus controller is not used, then it can achieve OC-10. On an 8850, the CBCs are split between the left and right side of the chassis: CBC0 supports slots 1-6 and 17-22 and CBC1 supports slots 9-14 and 25-30. On an 8830, CBC0 supports slots 3,5,10, and 12 and CBC1 supports slots 4,6,11, and 13. Balance is achieved by planning the distribution of your cell base card by evenly distribute from left side of chassis and right side of chassis.

PXM1E Hardware Limitations

These are the PXM1E hardware limitations:

For inter-card APS to work on the PXM1E-8-155 with one front card missing or unavailable, both backcards have to be present. A front card cannot drive the alternate trunk-backcard when its own local trunk-backcard is absent.

During hardware upgrade from PXM1E-4-155 to PXM1E-8-155, at the time when the inserted card types are different (one PXM1E-4-155 card set and one PXM1E- 8-155 card set), the standby trunk-backcard functionality will not be available. Therefore, LED functionality will not be available, and APS lines will not work on that backcard.No modular optical transciever(SFP-8-155)-mismatches will be reported for that backcard. No SFP-8-155 mismatches will be reported during hardware upgrades.

Since the PXM1E-4-155 and PXM1E-8-155 backcards support LC and SC interfaces respectively, the following limitation/restriction applies. For hardware upgrade from PXM1E-4-155, to PXM1E-8-155, it is required that, after the first PXM1E-4-155 card set is replaced by the PXM1E-8-155 card set, any cabling for the PXM1E-8-155 interfaces is updated with a LC-SC converter. Similarly, after the second card-set is replaced, the same needs to be done for the interfaces on the new card-set. If this is not done, the upgrade will not be graceful and will be service affecting, until appropriate cables are setup.

When MGX-8850-APS-CON is used, and one trunk-backcard is removed, care must be taken to screw the remaining backcard in completely, to ensure that the contacts are complete.

MGX-8850-APS-CON

The Combo card does NOT require a mini-backplane. The PXM1E-8-155 REQUIRES a mini-backplane. The PXM1E-4-155 card does not require a mini-backplane but it is RECOMMENDED that one be inserted. This is to support graceful upgrade to PXM1E-8-155 cards in the future. Since the PXM1E-8-155 card requires a mini-backplane, if one is not already present when upgrading from PXM1E-4-155 to PXM1E-8-155, the upgrade cannot be graceful.

Reserved VCIs

Here are the reserved VCIs that the customer cannot provision:

On a feeder trunk, VPI.VCI 3.8 is reserved for inband communication with the feeder shelf, and 3.31 is used for the feeder trunk Annex.G ILMI.

vpi=0, vci=5 is used for SSCOP for UNI signaling ports.(If the port is configured for non signaling (univer = none) then no VPI/VCI is reserved.)

VUNI uses configured vpi and VCI=5 for SSCOP.

EVUNI uses minimum vpi and VCI=5 for SSCOP.

NNI uses vpi=0, vci=18 for PNNI RCC.

VNNI uses configured VPI for the port and the VCI=18 for PNNI RCC

EVNNI uses minimum VPI and the VCI=18 for PNNI RCC

vpi=0, vci=16 is used for ILMI if ILMI is enabled. VUNI, VNNI uses configured VPI for the port and VCI=16 for ILMI. Similarly, ILMI for EVNNI or EVUNI uses minimum vpi and vci=16.

If MPLS is configured, vci=33 in the similar fashion as above.

If NCDP is configured, minimum VPI and vci=34 for NCDP clocking.

VPI=0 and VCI=31 are used for online diagnostics.

AXSM-E OAM

Any connection can receive E2E/OAM loopback cells up to the line rate (as long as the policing policy permits).

If the connection is not in the loopback mode and is operating in the normal mode, then the AXSM-E card can receive up to 1,500 segment OAM loopback cells per second. Any excessive segment OAM loopback cell will dropped. This limitation applies for all the connections on a card.

For example, if there is only one connection, then that connection can receive 1,500 segment OAM loopback cells per second. If there are 2,000 connections on an AXSM-E card and one segment OAM loopback cell per second is being pumped through on each connection, then there can only be up to 1,500 connections to receive loopback cells at any given second, and the additional 500 connections would not receive for that second.

The limitation is 1,500 segment OAM loopback cells per card and not per connection, the 1,500 cps assumes an even flow rate.

CLI Configurable Access

The following notes pertain to how command access levels can be configured:

Not all CLI commands are allowed to be changed and a command cannot be changed to CISCO_GP group access level.

Only the switch software is allowed to generate the binary file. This file has an authentication signature which has to be validated before the file can be used. Any manual changes to the file would make the file void.

If the binary file becomes corrupted, then the command access levels revert back to the default values during the card bring-up. To recover, repeat the installation process or retain a copy of the binary file and do cnfcli accesslevel install on that service module.

Currently, command names are verified, but an invalid command name may be parsed and be added to the binary file. However, this invalid name would be ignored later.

If replication to standby failed, the installation process failed.

cnfcli accesslevel default restores all command access levels to default for the service module that this command is executed on. It does not remove the binary file and this change is not persistent. If it is executed on the active card of a redundancy pair, the standby card is not affected. When the card is reset and the binary file exists, it will configure from the binary file when it is brought up.

Controller Card Mastership Sanity Verification

Because the solution provided in this release can only detect and log invalid mastership state transitions, an outage may still occur.

Serial Bus Path Fault Isolation

The Serial Bus Fault Isolation feature only addresses isolating errors on the local cards. However, when a common error occurs on the switching fabric card, this solution does not address this. As a result, if there is a problem on the PXM card or the XM60, the fault is going to be reported against all cards that detected the symptoms of this problem.

Cell Bus Path Fault Isolation and Recovery

The following notes pertain to cell bus path faults:

The isolation procedures can isolate the Cell Bus path involving the QE SAR that is used for polling the Serial Bus based Service Modules (e.g., AXSM, AXSM/B, AXSM-E,) and all the communication with the standby controller card and the Cell Bus Based Service Modules (e.g., FRSM, CESM). These procedures can't isolate the Cell Bus path failures involving ATMizer SAR that is used for the inter-card communication except polling, between the active controller card and the Serial Bus based Service Modules (e.g., AXSM, AXSM/B, AXSM-E).

The isolation procedures isolate the Cell Bus path failures to the active controller card only. This means, it is determined whether the active controller card has the fault for the inter-card communication over the Cell Bus from the active controller card to the Service Modules and the standby controller card or not. It does not isolate the fault if the active controller card fails to communicate with some cards and successfully communicates with the rest on the Cell Bus.

There should be at least 2 cards (2 Service Modules or 1 Service Module and 1 standby PXM) for the isolation procedures to be able to isolate the Cell Bus path failures to the active controller card.

Only the failures detected by periodic polling triggers the isolation procedures. Failures reported from other sources in the system against a Service Module or the standby controller card due to the Cell Bus path failures don't initiate the isolation procedures, and which results in resetting that card against which the failure is reported, even while the active controller card is in the process of isolating the Cell Bus path failures triggered by the polling failures.

There is no separate trap/alarm generated against the active controller card Cell Bus path when the fault is isolated to the active controller card. Only the event logs will be available that can be used during the manual investigation triggered by the card reset and/or switchover traps.

If there is no controller card redundancy available, isolating the Cell Bus path failure to active controller card results in outage as the active controller card will be reset.

FRSM-12-T3E3

The following limitations summarize the FRSM-12-T3E3 adherence to the current Functional Specification:


Note The FRSM-12-T3E3 card does not support E3.


CLLM will not be supported: The FRSM-12-T3E3 card can support connection level congestion through ATM EFCI. It also supports FR-ATM interworking of ECN and EFCI. Frame level congestion only happens in full line rate of sub-15 byte frames, therefore the hardware will only support Port Level Congestion Management in the Frame Relay domain.

BERT is not supported.

Sub-rate DS3 is not supported.

Online and Offline Diagnostics is not supported.

Complete core dump is not supported.

Port and Connection Limitations

The following are port and connection limitations pertaining to the new FRSM-12-T3E3 card:

Port limitations:

4 bytes header length with Stratacom LMI is not supported

LMI on Frame Forwarding port is not supported

If LMI is configured, Port header length cannot be changed

Connection Limitations:

Single ended connections can only originate from FRSM12. Single-ended connections terminating on FRSM12 are not supported.

The command chanType cannot be modified

If Port header length is 2 bytes, Max DLCI number is 1023

If Port header length is 2 bytes, the restricted DLCIs are 0, 1007 and 1023

If Port header length is 4 bytes, the restricted DLCIs are 0 and 8257535

To add a Frame Forward connection, the port should be configured to Frame Forward type.

For Frame Forwarding ports, the maximum configurable connection(s) is 1.

For Frame Relay ports, the maximum configurable connection(s) is 4000.

If the connection is in loopback, it cannot be modified

CIR can only be 0 for UBR connections

If CIR equals to 0, Bc should also be zero, Be and zeroCirConEir should be nonzero.

If CIR not equals to 0, Bc should be nonzero

If chanType is Frame Forward, chanFECNconfig should be setEFCIzero, chanCLPtoDEmap should be ignoreCLP, chanDEtoCLPmap should not be mapCLP

If chanType is NIW or NIWReplacem chanFECNconfig should be setEFCIzero, chanCLPtoDEmap should not be setDEzero or setDEone

If chanType is frSIW_transparent or frSIW_translate, chanCLPtoDEmap should not be ignoreCLP

Maximum connections depending on LMI type:

Annex A/D LMI, 2 byte header, FRF 1.2 not enabled: 898 conns

Annex A/D LMI, 2 byte header, FRF 1.2 enabled: 1000 conns (port max)

Annex A/D LMI, 4 byte header, FRF 1.2 not enabled: 640 conns

Annex A/D LMI, 4 byte header, FRF 1.2 enabled: 4000 conns (port max)

Strata LMI, 2 byte header, FRF 1.2 not enabled: 560 conns

Strata LMI, 2 byte header, FRF 1.2 enabled: 1000 conns (port max)

Disk Space Maintenance

Because the firmware doesn't audit the disk space usage and remove unused files, the disk space in C: and E: drives should be manually monitored. Manually delete any unused saved configuration files, core files and firmware files and the configuration files of the MGX-RPM-PR-256/512 and MGX-RPM-XF-512 cards to avoid a shortage of disk space required to store event logs, configuration upload files in the C: drive and the configuration of MGX-RPM-PR-256/512 and MGX-RPM-XF-512 cards in the E: drive.

The following steps are recommended to remove files on the system from the active controller card:


Step 1 Change to the directory that needs grooming.

CLI cc <directory_name> 

Step 2 List the directory to identify old files that can be removed and available disk space.

CLI ll 

Step 3 To remove any old files (you may also use wildcards in the filename):

CLI rm <complete_filename> 

Step 4 List the directory to see if the file has been removed and disk space is available:

CLI ll 


Non-native Controller Front Card and PXM-HD Card

When the front controller cards or the PXM-HD back cards are swapped within the same system, the system will perform a non-native card check, as a result, the controller card that attempts to come up as Active/Active may get resets twice.

When a non-native PXM1E front card or a PXM-HD card is inserted into the standby controller slot, after the standby controller front card becomes Active/Standby, the active controller front card will copy its hard disk content over to the standby controller card. The active controller front card will not perform any automatic hard disk contents removal from neither the active nor standby controller card.

The system will keep only the two most recent copy of the saved system configuration under C:/CNF directory. Customer may use ftp protocol to ftp all the saved configuration under C:/CNF to their local server for future references. All files under C:/CNF will not replicated over to the standby controller card under any circumstances.

clrsmcnf Command

These notes pertain to the clrsmcnf command:

Cisco does not recommend executing clrsmcnf on more than one card at a time

For the clear service module configuration feature, if there is a controller card switchover before the clear service module configuration operation is complete, the clrsmcnf command needs to be re-issued to ensure that the configuration is completely cleared to avoid any incomplete cleanup.

For the clear service module configuration feature, using the clrsmcnf command may result in discrepancy in the PNNI configuration. For example, some connections may be in the mis-match state.

If the clrsmcnf command is given with the <all> option to clear the software version for the slot as well, then the card will go into the boot/empty state after the operation is complete.

While using the clrsmcnf command, the card in the specified slot is not usable until the operation has successfully completed.

APS

These notes pertain to the APS feature:

For AXSM APS, the backcard of the active card MUST be present for APS to function.

AXSMs need the backcard of the active front card for the APS to work. This implies that AXSMs do not support the cross backcard removal, upper backcard of one AXSM and lower backcard of another AXSM.

If you remove the upper backcard of the active front AXSM, it will trigger switching active card. At this point the APS is OK. However, if the lower backcard of the current active AXSM is removed at this time, it will not trigger switching active card since the standby card is missing one of the backcard. At this point the lower backcard APS does not work since the backcard of the active front card is missing.

Port LED lights on AXSM-E, AXSM-XG and PXM1E front cards indicate the receive status of physical line connected to it only when the card is in active state. For a standby AXSM-E, AXSM-XG, and PXM1E cards, the LEDs always remain green whether the lines are in LOS irrespective of which lines are Active (refer to anomaly CSCdv68576).

Path and Connection Trace

These notes pertain to the path and connection trace features:

Path trace is not supported on the control port.

Path trace will not have the accurate information when there is a crankback on the connect path.

Path and Connection trace since Release 3.0.00 is not compatible with the path and connection trace available with previous releases.

Path and Connection trace supports point to point connections.

Path and Connection trace supports MPG (multi-peer group) and SPG (single-peer group).

Simple Network Timing Protocol (SNTP)

The CWM MIB is not supported in the release.

Priority Routing

These notes pertain to the priority routing feature:

Prioritized reroute of SPVCs is not guaranteed, if the SPVCs originate on a signaling port. SPVCs may get routed out of order. In-order routing of SPVCs is guaranteed on non-signaling ports.

RPM does not support configuration of routing priority. All RPM mastered SPVCs will be assigned a routing priority of 8 by the PXM.

addcon command on SES does not have support for specifying the routing priority. All the added SPVCs are assigned a routing priority of 8. cnfcon can be used to change the routing priority of the SPVCs.

Changing the routing priority for dax connections, will not change the priority of the associated SVCs, this is because the SPVCs will not be derouted and rerouted if just the end-point parameters are changed, and routing priority is an end-point parameter. Also since dax connections are never derouted even when the UNI port goes down and rrtcon command is not supported for dax connections, the routing priority change will never get reflected. The only way for this to get reflected is to do a dncon and upcon. The very fact that dax connections are never derouted, the effect of this limitation is voided.

Priority routing operates in a best effort manner for the following reasons:

Two in-order RELEASEs can still arrive out of order at the Master node, if they take two different paths.

Under congestion scenarios we can expect RELEASEs to be transmitted out-of-order. This is because we do not want to hold up the release of other calls if we are not able to send RELEASEs on one of the interfaces, as it is congested. The calls that we are unable to release could be higher priority calls.

Lower priority SPVCs can be routed ahead of higher priority SPVCs. This can happen if we have attempted several times to route higher priority SPVCs, but failed. To prevent starvation of lower priority SPVCs, software will start to route lower priority SPVCs and software will get to the higher priority SPVCs at a later point in time.

SPVC Interop

These notes pertain to SPVC interoperability:

NNI SPVC Addendum Version 1.0 is not supported.

PNNI 1.0 Addendum (Soft PVC MIB) is not supported.

Terminating single-ended SPVCs on MGX switch Legacy Service Modules is not supported.

Origination of Single ended spvcs (with -slavepersflag) from Legacy Service Modules (FRSM, CESM and RPM) is not supported.

CC (Continuity Check) shall not be available at the slave end of a single-ended SPVC.

Reporting AIS detection to CWM shall not be available at the slave end of a single-ended SPVC.

tstdelay shall not be available at the slave end of a single-ended SPVC for MGX 8850. In case of SES-PNNI, the command is available from the PXM even for the slave endpoint.

The slave end of a single-ended SPVC shall not be visible to CWM.

If Single-ended SPVCs are originated from MGX switches, they can only be configured via CLI and not from CWM in the current release.

Single-end Provisioning will not be supported for DAX connections as no value addition is seen for Interoperability.

SPVC Statistics shall not be available for the slave endpoint of a single-ended SPVC because this endpoint is non-persistent.

When the persistent slave endpoint of an existing SPVC connection is deleted and the master endpoint is allowed to remain, the connection may get established as a single-ended spvc connection. In this case, CWM will show the connection as "Incomplete."

Override of SVC connections on a VPI due to an incoming SPVP request for that VPI is not supported The following override options alone are supported:

spvcoverridesvc

spvcoverridesvp

spvpoverridesvp.

Persistent Topology

These notes pertain to the persistent topology feature:

In a mixed network of pre-Release 4.0.00 and 4.0.00 or later nodes, only the node name and the node id will be shown for a pre-Release 4.0.00 node in the topo DB. This is because the feature is not present in pre-Release 4.0.00 nodes.

If a peer group is made up of physical nodes with pre-Release 4.0.00 release logical nodes, then the info for the logical node will be stored in the Topo DB, because there is no way to distinguish between physical nodes and pre-Release 4.0.00 release logical nodes. Logical nodes with Release 4.0.00 or later SW release will not be stored in the Topo DB.

To delete a node info entry from the Topo DB, first remove the node itself from the network, either by disconnecting the cables, or downing all the links between that node and the network. Wait for an hour. Then, delete that node from the topo DB. This is done because, even if a node is removed from the topo DB of all nodes in the peer group, its PTSEs will still be stored in the other nodes, until they are flushed from those nodes. This would happen within an hour's time, but it is configurable as a PNNI timer value. If the node is deleted from the Topo DB within that hour's time, and the node does switchcc/reboot, then it's possible that the node info for that deleted node will be added back into the topo db.

When the node id of a node is changed, the old node id is added back into the Topo DB as a new node entry. In addition, the old node id will still be stored in the topo DB of all the other nodes in the PG. In order to delete this entry, wait for an hour so that the PTSEs with the old node id is flushed from the DB of all the nodes in the PG, and then delete the info of the old node id from the topo DB.

It is possible that the gateway nodes are not in sync in a peer group, and this could happen in many situations. For example, a gateway node is added in a peer group, then a node is deleted from the PG, and another gateway node is configured, then the info for the deleted node would not be in the second gateway node. Another example is that a node is deleted from one gateway node, but not in another gateway node.

When deleting a node from the PG, the node info must be deleted from all the nodes in that PG, even the non-gateway-node nodes. Otherwise, the node info for that deleted node will still be in the non-gateway-node nodes. This could cause inconsistencies later if this node is configured to be a gateway node.

Manual Clocking

These notes pertain to manual clocking:

AUSM can support only one clock. If a second clock is configured on the same AUSM card AUSM will negative acknowledge us. Attempts to configure the second clock will fail silently.

NO clock sources supported on FRSM. If a clock source is configured on FRSM it will not be reflected in our database.

When resetcd is invoked, the primary and secondary (if configured) clock sources will be recommitted. However, the clock on which the node is latched on to will not be requalified. Only the backup clock will be qualified if present. Recommitted means that the primary and secondary will get requalified and the node will temporarily latch onto the internal oscillator, After the clock is requalified, the node will lock onto the primary clock source once again.

AXSM Cards

If ER stamping is used, the rate interval does not provide sufficient accuracy to be completely effective. As a result, when an AXSM card is supporting a PNNI link which is congested with mixed CBR/ABR traffic, cells will be dropped. This Conditions only occurs when ER stamping is enabled and CI is disabled on an AXSM PNNI link, along with CBR/ABR traffic running so as cause congestion on the link.

We recommend that the CI/EFCI mechanism be used for rate feedback rather than the ER stamping mechanism, especially if CBR/ABR traffic is expected. Refer to anomaly CSCdw63829.

AXSM-XG Hardware Limitation

The IR/LR/XLR SFP modules will need a 10 db attenuator when connected with short cables. Otherwise we will be exceeding the specification for receiver sensitivity on the Rx.

ATM Multicast

The recommended configuration for MGX 8950 with ATM multicast application is as follows:

MGX 8950 system loaded with AXSM/Bs without any AXSM-XG cards in the system

MGX 8950 system loaded with all AXSM-XG based cards without AXSM/Bs in the system.

The MGX 8950 system having a mix of AXSM-XG based card and AXSM/Bs is not a recommended configuration for ATM Multicast application. The limitation is due to the behavior of backplane serial buses in the system. The suggested workaround:

In order for the MGX 8950 system with AXSM-XG based card and AXSM/B to be present in the network supporting ATM Multicast the PNNI Node configuration can be made as branching restricted. cnfpnni-node 1 -branchingRestricted on

Other Limitations and Restrictions

When configuring virtual interfaces (i.e. VUNI, VNNI, EVUNI, EVNNI), the physical interface must be of all one ATM header type, either UNI or NNI. Keep in mind that the signaling that is applied to a virtual port is independent of the actual virtual port ATM header. The only limit will be that the VPI value must be within the UNI ATM header limitations.

If command clrchancnt is executed while a dspchancnt command is currently active then the data displayed will be incorrect. Restarting the dspchancnt after the previous one has completed will display correct data.

clrsmcnf will not work for redundant service modules.

clrsmcnf will not work if an upgrade is in progress.

If RPM-PR or RPM-XF is configured as a LSC (Label Switch Controller), execution of clrsmcnf command on those LSC slots will be rejected - as designed.

Configuration information will not be synchronized between PXMs during upgrades. If there are any changes to the configuration during upgrades, the standby pxm needs to be rebooted. The standby PXM needs to be rebooted when it's in a stable state.

The maximum number connections supported in Release 3.0.00 or later with PXM45/B is 250,000 connections.

NCDP is not supported on BPX.

CSCdz33652 - when you clear the chancnt while you are monitoring the chancnt. Once this happens we get garbage for the counters on the dspchancnt display. (AXSM-XG)

Clearing the Configuration on Redundant PXM45 and PXM1E Cards

Due to checks to prevent an inserted card from affecting the system, an additional step may be required when inserting two nonnative PXM45 (or PXM1E) cards in a shelf. Insert the first PXM45, use the clrallcnf command, and allow this to become active before inserting the second PXM45 (or PXM1E).

After a clrallcnf, the user needs to explicitly clean up stale SCT files (refer to anomaly CSCdw80282).

Troubleshooting APS Lines

Port light behavior changed in Release 3.0.00 as follows:

Port lights on AXSM /B front cards indicate the receive status of APS lines. The active front card always displays the status of the active line. The standby card always displays the status of the inactive line. If only one APS line fails, the line failure LED is always displayed on the standby front card.

Port lights on AXSM/B front cards indicate the receive status of the Physical Line connected to it. For example, when APS is configured for working line as 5.1.3 and protection line as 6.1.3, regardless of which card is active, port LED on card 5 will show the receive status of 5.1.3 and card 6 will show the receive status of 6.1.3.


Note The remainder of this section is the same as for Release 2.1.80 unless otherwise noted as updated for Release 3.0.00.



Caution When the active front card and the active line are in different slots and the inactive line has failed, it is easy to incorrectly identify the failed line as the line in the standby slot. To avoid disrupting traffic through the active line, verify which physical line is at fault before disconnecting the suspect line.

If the active line fails and the standby line is not available, the switch reports a critical alarm.

If the active line fails and the standby line takes over, the former standby line becomes the new active line, and the switch reports a major alarm.

If an AXSM/A front card fails, APS communication between the redundant front cards fails. This can result in one of the following situations:

If both APS lines were working before the failure, an APS line failure causes a switchover to the protection line

If either APS line failed prior to a front card failure, a failure on the active line does not cause a switchover to the other line. Because the standby front card failed, it cannot monitor the standby line and report when the line has recovered. This means that the active card cannot use the standby line until the standby front card is replaced and the line problem corrected.

Use the following procedure to troubleshoot APS lines.


Step 1 Enter the dsplns command to determine if the line in alarm is an APS line. The dsplns  command shows which lines are enabled for APS:

M8xx0_.1.node.a > dsplns
                                           Medium Medium 
  Sonet  Line     Line     Line    Frame   Line   Line     Alarm   APS 
  Line  State     Type     Lpbk   Scramble Coding Type     State   Enabled
  ----- ----- ------------ ------ -------- ------ -------  -----   -------- 
   1.1     Up sonetSts12c NoLoop   Enable  Other ShortSMF    Clear Enable
   1.2     Up sonetSts12c NoLoop   Enable  Other ShortSMF    Clear Disable
   2.1     Up sonetSts12c NoLoop   Enable  Other ShortSMF    Clear Disable
   2.2     Up sonetSts12c NoLoop   Enable  Other ShortSMF    Clear Disable

If the line in alarm is an APS line, and has always functioned properly as an APS line, proceed to Step 2.

If the line in alarm has never functioned properly as an APS line, verify that the following are true:

redundant front and back cards are in the appropriate bays and are installed at both ends of the line.

cable is properly connected to both ends of the line.

enter the dspapsbkplane command to verify that the APS connector is installed properly at both ends of the line.

Step 2 Enter the dspapslns command at both ends of the communication line to determine whether one or both lines in an APS pair are bad. Use Table 14 to help you determine which APS line is not functioning properly.


Note Table 14 is updated for Release 3.0.00.

If one or both lines appear to be bad, determine whether the working or protection line is in alarm. Troubleshoot and correct the standby line first. Replace the components along the signal path until the problem is resolved.

If the dspapslns command at either end of the line indicates a front or back card problem, resolve that problem first. (See Table 15 to troubleshoot card problems).

If the dspapslns command shows a signal failure on the standby line, replace that line.

If the standby line is still down, replace the cards along the signal path.

Obtaining Technical Assistance

For all customers, partners, resellers, and distributors who hold valid Cisco service contracts, Cisco Technical Support provides 24-hour-a-day, award-winning technical assistance. The Cisco Technical Support Website on Cisco.com features extensive online support resources. In addition, Cisco Technical Assistance Center (TAC) engineers provide telephone support. If you do not hold a valid Cisco service contract, contact your reseller.

Cisco Technical Support Website

The Cisco Technical Support Website provides online documents and tools for troubleshooting and resolving technical issues with Cisco products and technologies. The website is available 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, at this URL:

http://www.cisco.com/techsupport

Access to all tools on the Cisco Technical Support Website requires a Cisco.com user ID and password. If you have a valid service contract but do not have a user ID or password, you can register at this URL:

http://tools.cisco.com/RPF/register/register.do


Note Use the Cisco Product Identification (CPI) tool to locate your product serial number before submitting a web or phone request for service. You can access the CPI tool from the Cisco Technical Support Website by clicking the Tools & Resources link under Documentation & Tools. Choose Cisco Product Identification Tool from the Alphabetical Index drop-down list, or click the Cisco Product Identification Tool link under Alerts & RMAs. The CPI tool offers three search options: by product ID or model name; by tree view; or for certain products, by copying and pasting show command output. Search results show an illustration of your product with the serial number label location highlighted. Locate the serial number label on your product and record the information before placing a service call.


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 TAC 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 TAC 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.
