Cisco IOS 12.4(18c) Mainline

The majority of Cisco Unified Communications Release 7.0(1) system testing was performed using Cisco IOS Release 12.4(20)T. However, automated testing of basic call functionality and additional load testing were performed using the Cisco IOS Release 12.4(18c) Mainline. Because Cisco IOS Mainline releases do not support many of the calling features found in Cisco IOS T releases, this additional testing involved only basic call functionality between IP phones and IP phones to PSTN endpoints.

Testing was performed using the following voice/data gateways:

Cisco 3700 Series Multiservice Access Routers: Cisco 3725 (H.323) and Cisco 3745 (MGCP)

Cisco 3800 Series Integrated Services Routers: Cisco 3825 and Cisco 3845 (H.323 and MGCP)

Cisco Catalyst Switch Communications Media Module (CMM)

http://www.cisco.com/en/US/products/products_end-of-life_policy.html

Deployment Considerations

The tables in this section list the recommended software and firmware releases based on Cisco Unified Communications Release 7.0(1). Note that not every rebuild is tested as part of Cisco Unified Communications. Therefore, additional regression testing in a customer or Cisco-specific certification lab is recommended before deployment.

When deploying IP Communications in a customer environment, please remember the following:

At the minimum, customers should deploy the software release recommended in these tables.

For CSA, customers should use the latest engine and policy release. CSA software is available at:

http://www.cisco.com/cgi-bin/tablebuild.pl/csa

For other software components, customers should use the most current rebuild of a maintenance release. For IOS, information about the latest releases, including deferral advisories, is available at:

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

If the recommended release has been deferred to a subsequent release, customers should use the subsequent release.

Before deploying a release, examine the open caveats in the chosen release to determine if any will impact your implementation. Open caveats can be viewed through the Bug Toolkit, located at:

http://tools.cisco.com/Support/BugToolKit/

In system upgrades, deploy the chosen release in a lab environment that uses the same product components as the customer's product components before moving it to a production environment.

Important Notes

This section includes important notes related to the testing of Cisco Unified Communications System Release 7.0(1) for IP telephony and includes the following issues:

HP SCSI Hard Drive Firmware Update

Unity deployment with multiple exchange server does not work with CUPM (CSCso65108)

Unable to provision trunks, MGCP GW, VM ports and Media resources (CSCso66982)

High CPU Utilization Causing Call Failures (CSCsr56225)

Firewall Services Module (FWSM) does not support TCP SACK option (CSCeb1675, CSCsr81535, and CSCsi54863)

HP SCSI Hard Drive Firmware Update

The HP SCSI hard drive firmware update issue addresses the following defects:

CSCse71185: Certain HP Ultra320 SCSI HDs May Exhibit Reduced Perf and Timeouts

CSCse71295: HP FW Recommended to Min Potential for Media Errors on Certain SCSI HD

CSCso98836: HP Ultra320 SCSI HDD FW Upgrade

CSCse71185: Certain HP Ultra320 SCSI HDs May Exhibit Reduced Perf and Timeouts

A ProLiant server configured with any of the HP Ultra320 SCSI hard drives listed in HP Customer Advisory #C00677430 (available at http://www.hp.com) may exhibit reduced performance or have excessive timeouts. This performance issue is caused by the dynamically adjusted seek time profile table in the drive firmware after it becomes degraded.

When this problem occurs, the reduced performance is characterized by occasional brief delays in command response time while servicing random workloads and in severe cases the drive may exhibit command timeouts, which requires a server reboot for recovery.

CSCse71295: HP FW Recommended to Min Potential for Media Errors on Certain SCSI HD

A ProLiant server configured with any of the HP Ultra320 SCSI hard drives listed in HP Customer Advisory #C00542020 (available at http://www.hp.com) may report media errors or illuminate the drive fault LED. The corrected firmware version (HPB4 or later) reduces the hard drive idle time that could potentially lead to build-up of media lubricant on the disk surface or drive head, causing the drives to report media errors or illuminate the drive fault LED.

CSCso98836: HP Ultra320 SCSI HDD FW Upgrade

A ProLiant server configured with any of the HP Ultra320 SCSI hard drives listed in HP Customer Advisory #C00859596 (available at http://www.hp.com) may exhibit timeouts and SCSI downshifts.

These problems may occur on the following server models:

MCS-7835-1266 (DL380-G2)

MCS-7835H-2.4 (DL380-G3)

MCS-7835H-3.0 (DL380-G3)

MCS-7835-H1 (DL380-G4)

MCS-7845-1400 (DL380-G2)

MCS-7845H-2.4 (DL380-G3)

MCS-7845H-3.0 (DL380-G3)

MCS-7845-H1 (DL380-G4)

The affected hard drives for these problems are listed in the associated HP Customer Advisories. However, the Cisco provided HP SCSI Hard Drive Firmware Update CD can be applied to all listed server types and the impacted drives will be updated if applicable.

To update the firmware to a Cisco tested level, use the Cisco provided HP SCSI Hard Drive Firmware Update CD released simultaneous to the Unified Communications 7.0(1) system release. For more details on installing the firmware, see the README.txt file for HP SCSI Hard Drive Firmware Update CD.

The ISO image for the Cisco provided HP SCSI Hard Drive Firmware Update CD and associated readme file may be obtained from Cisco.com at the following navigation path:

Unity deployment with multiple exchange server does not work with CUPM (CSCso65108)

Cisco Unified Provisioning Manager (CUPM) can be used to create mailboxes only on the default mailstore in partner exchange server and cannot be used to create mailboxes in exchange servers other than the partner exchange server. This is a limitation for enterprise customers with Unified messaging system and many voicemail deployments with more than one exchange servers in their network.

To workaround this issue, move the mailboxes to the desired mailstore in desired exchange server using Microsoft Exchange task Wizard.

Unable to provision trunks, MGCP GW, VM ports and Media resources (CSCso66982)

Cisco Unified Provisioning Manager provides a reliable and scalable Web-based solution for managing a your next-generation communications services in an integrated IP telephony, voicemail, and messaging environment including:

Cisco Unified Communications Manager

Cisco Unified Communications Manager Express

Cisco Unity

Cisco Unity Express

Cisco Unity Connection systems

Cisco Unified Mobility

Cisco Unified Communications Manager side of Presence provisioning, including client provisioning for Cisco Unified Personal Communicator

However Provisioning Manager does not support the configurations of the following in Cisco Unified Communications Manager:

MGCP Gateway

SIP Trunk

ICT Trunk (non-GK controlled)

ICT Trunk (GK controlled)

H225 Trunk (GK Controlled)

Gatekeeper

Voicemail Ports

Transcoder

Conference Bridge

MoH Servers and source

Media Termination Point

SRST Reference

Date/Time Group

AAR Group

FAC

CMC

This issue can be resolved by using Cisco Unified Communications Manager Administration GUI to configure the above components.

High CPU Utilization Causing Call Failures (CSCsr56225)

For the Cisco 2801, 2851, and 7200 Series routers with Cisco IOS image 12.4(20)T, a higher CPU utilization is causing call failures.

Currently, there is no workaround for this problem.

Firewall Services Module (FWSM) does not support TCP SACK option (CSCeb1675, CSCsr81535, and CSCsi54863)

The lack of SACK support in the FWSM addresses the following defects:(

CSCeb16752: Support TCP selective ACK for TCP connection - TCP SACK option

CSCsr81535: CUCM SDL Links go out of service under load with seq# rand and SACK data

CSCsi54863: FWSM: new MPC command to clear TCP Sack-Permitted option in 3WHS - SACK

The Firewall Services Module (FWSM) does not support the TCP SACK option, which means that the sequence numbers carried in the TCP SACK option are not randomized the same way the normal TCP sequence numbers are randomized as they cross FWSM. Due to this issue the sequence numbers carried in the TCP SACK option will appear corrupted to the TCP end points and may reject these packets. This issue is documented in CSCeb16752.

Many TCP end points, among others like the Cisco Unified Communication Manager and Cisco Unified Presence Server support the TCP SACK option to speed up data transfer in case of packet loss. If two such end points establish a TCP session through the FWSM, they will agree during the 3-way handshake to use the TCP SACK option in case of a packet loss. However, if there is packet loss and the end points attempt to use TCP SACK option, they will encounter the problem described in CSCeb16752 and the TCP session may fail. One such instance of a failure is captured in CSCsr81535, where the SDL link between two Cisco Unified Communication Managers went out of service due to this issue.

A workaround to this problem was introduced through the defect CSCsi54863. The no sysopt connection tcp sack-permitted command in global configuration mode will instruct the FWSM to modify the TCP packets during the 3-way handshake as if the TCP end points did not support the TCP SACK option. This way the end points will not attempt to use the TCP SACK option and so the lack of support for this option in the FWSM will not cause any problems.


Note The no sysopt connection tcp sack-permitted command does not work for pre-allocated connections. Pre-allocated connections are connections opened by an inspect. In Unified Communications, the H.323/H.225 and the SIP inspects may open pre-allocated TCP connections. This means that calls that rely on H.323 or SIP signaling crossing and FWSM may still experience intermittent call failures despite applying the workaround described in the defects.
