Release Notes for the Cisco Voice Switch Service Module (VXSM), Release 5.0.00

Limitations, Restrictions, and Notes for 5.0.00

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

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.

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.

AXSM-32-T1E1-E

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 5ms 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.

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.

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, the fault is going to be reported against all cards that detected the symptoms of this problem.

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-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-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 

Saving ConfigurationsThe 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 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 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 supports point to point connections.

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

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.

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.

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.

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.

Manual Clocking

These notes pertain to manual clocking:

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.

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-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.

Clearing the Configuration on Redundant PXM45 Card

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

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

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 automatically provides recommended solutions. If your issue is not resolved using the recommended resources, your service request will be 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)

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.
