High Availability Commands

debug platform stack-manager

To enable debugging of the stack manager software, use the debug platform stack-manager command in privileged EXEC mode. To disable debugging, use the no form of this command.

debug platform stack-manager { all | rpc | sdp | sim | ssm | trace }

no debug platform stack-manager { all | rpc | sdp | sim | ssm | trace }

Syntax Description

all

Displays all stack manager debug messages.

rpc

Displays stack manager remote procedure call (RPC) usage debug messages.

sdp

Displays the Stack Discovery Protocol (SDP) debug messages.

sim

Displays the stack information module debug messages.

ssm

Displays the stack state-machine debug messages.

trace

Traces the stack manager entry and exit debug messages.

Command Default

Debugging is disabled.

Command Modes

Privileged EXEC

Command History

Release Modification

Cisco IOS XE 3.2SE

This command was introduced.

Usage Guidelines

This command is supported only on stacking-capable switches.

The undebug platform stack-manager command is the same as the no debug platform stack-manager command.

When you enable debugging on a switch stack, it is enabled only on the stack master. To enable debugging on a stack member, you can start a session from the stack master by using the session switch-number EXEC command. Enter the debug command at the command-line prompt of the stack member. You also can use the remote command stack-member-number LINE EXEC command on the stack master switch to enable debugging on a member switch without first starting a session.

main-cpu

To enter the redundancy main configuration submode and enable the standby switch, use the main-cpu command in redundancy configuration mode.

main-cpu

Syntax Description

This command has no arguments or keywords.

Command Default

None

Command Modes

Redundancy configuration

Command History

Release Modification

Cisco IOS XE 3.2SE

This command was introduced.

Usage Guidelines

From the redundancy main configuration submode, use the standby console enable command to enable the standby switch.

Examples

This example shows how to enter the redundancy main configuration submode and enable the standby switch:

Controller(config)# redundancy
Controller(config-red)# main-cpu
Controller(config-r-mc)# standby console enable
Controller#

mode sso

To set the redundancy mode to stateful switchover (SSO), use the mode sso command in redundancy configuration mode.

mode sso

Syntax Description

This command has no arguments or keywords.

Command Default

None

Command Modes

Redundancy configuration

Command History

Release Modification

Cisco IOS XE 3.2SE

This command was introduced.

Usage Guidelines

The mode sso command can be entered only from within redundancy configuration mode.

Follow these guidelines when configuring your system to SSO mode:

  • You must use identical Cisco IOS images on the switches in the stack to support SSO mode. Redundancy may not work due to differences between the Cisco IOS releases.
  • If you perform an online insertion and removal (OIR) of the module, the switch resets during the stateful switchover and the port states are restarted only if the module is in a transient state (any state other than Ready).
  • The forwarding information base (FIB) tables are cleared on a switchover. Routed traffic is interrupted until route tables reconverge.

Examples

This example shows how to set the redundancy mode to SSO:

Controller(config)# redundancy
Controller(config-red)# mode sso
Controller(config-red)#

policy config-sync prc reload

To reload the standby switch if a parser return code (PRC) failure occurs during configuration synchronization, use the policy config-sync reload command in redundancy configuration mode. To specify that the standby switch is not reloaded if a parser return code (PRC) failure occurs, use the no form of this command.

policy config-sync { bulk | lbl } prc reload

no policy config-sync { bulk | lbl } prc reload

Syntax Description

bulk

Specifies bulk configuration mode.

lbl

Specifies line-by-line (lbl) configuration mode.

Command Default

The command is enabled by default.

Usage Guidelines

The redundancy configuration mode is used to enter the main CPU submode, which is used to enable the standby switch.

To enter the main CPU submode, use the main-cpu command while in redundancy configuration mode.

From the main CPU submode, use the standby console enable command to enable the standby switch.

Use the exit command to exit redundancy configuration mode.

Examples

This example shows how to enter redundancy configuration mode:

Controller(config)# redundancy
Controller(config-red)#

This example shows how to enter the main CPU submode:

Controller(config)# redundancy
Controller(config-red)# main-cpu
Controller(config-r-mc)#

redundancy config-sync mismatched-commands

To allow the standby switch to join the stack if a configuration mismatch occurs between the active and standby switches, use the redundancy config-sync mismatched-commands command in privileged EXEC mode.

redundancy config-sync { ignore | validate } mismatched-commands

Syntax Description

ignore

Ignores the mismatched command list.

validate

Revalidates the mismatched command list with the modified running-configuration.

Command Default

None

Command Modes

Privileged EXEC

Command History

Release Modification

Cisco IOS XE 3.2SE

This command was introduced.

Usage Guidelines

If the command syntax check in the running configuration of the active switch fails while the standby switch is booting, use the redundancy config-sync mismatched-commands command to display the Mismatched Command List (MCL) on the active switch and to reboot the standby switch.

The following is a log entry example for mismatched commands:

00:06:31: Config Sync: Bulk-sync failure due to Servicing Incompatibility. Please check full list of mismatched commands via:
show redundancy config-sync failures mcl
00:06:31: Config Sync: Starting lines from MCL file:
interface GigabitEthernet7/7
! <submode> "interface"
- ip address 192.0.2.0 255.255.255.0
! </submode> "interface"

To display all mismatched commands, use the show redundancy config-sync failures mcl command.

To clean the MCL, follow these steps:

  1. Remove all mismatched commands from the running configuration of the active switch.
  2. Revalidate the MCL with a modified running configuration by using the redundancy config-sync validate mismatched-commands command.
  3. Reload the standby switch.

You can ignore the MCL by doing the following:

  1. Enter the redundancy config-sync ignore mismatched-commands command.
  2. Reload the standby switch; the system changes to SSO mode.

    Note


    If you ignore the mismatched commands, the out-of-sync configuration at the active switch and the standby switch still exists.


  3. Verify the ignored MCL with the show redundancy config-sync ignored mcl command.

If SSO mode cannot be established between the active and standby switches because of an incompatibility in the configuration file, a mismatched command list (MCL) is generated at the active switch and a reload into route processor redundancy (RPR) mode is forced for the standby switch.


Note


RPR mode is supported on Catalyst 3850 switches as a fallback in case of errors. It is not configurable.


If you attempt to establish an SSO after removing the offending configuration and rebooting the standby switch with the same image, the C3K_REDUNDANCY-2-IOS_VERSION_CHECK_FAIL and ISSU-3-PEER_IMAGE_INCOMPATIBLE messages appear because the peer image is listed as incompatible. You can clear the peer image from the incompatible list with the redundancy config-sync ignore mismatched-commands EXEC command while the peer is in a standby cold (RPR) state. This action allows the standby switch to boot in a standby hot (SSO) state when it reloads.

Examples

This example shows how to revalidate the mismatched command list with the modified configuration:

Controller# redundancy config-sync validate mismatched-commands
Controller#

redundancy force-switchover

To force a switchover from the active switch to the standby switch, use the redundancy force-switchover command in privileged EXEC mode on a switch stack.

redundancy force-switchover

Syntax Description

This command has no arguments or keywords.

Command Default

None

Command Modes

Privileged EXEC

Command History

Release Modification

Cisco IOS XE 3.2SE

This command was introduced.

Usage Guidelines

Use the redundancy force-switchover command to manually switch over to the redundant switch. The redundant switch becomes the new active switch that runs the Cisco IOS image, and the modules are reset to their default settings.

The old active switch reboots with the new image and joins the stack.

If you use the redundancy force-switchover command on the active switch, the switchports on the active switch to go down.

If you use this command on a switch that is in a partial ring stack, the following warning message appears:

Controller# redundancy force-switchover
Stack is in Half ring setup; Reloading a switch might cause stack split
This will reload the active unit and force switchover to standby[confirm]

Examples

This example shows how to manually switch over from the active to the standby supervisor engine:

Controller# redundancy force-switchover
Controller#

redundancy reload

To force a reload of one or all of the switches in the stack, use the redundancy reload command in privileged EXEC mode.

redundancy reload { peer | shelf }

Syntax Description

peer

Reloads the peer unit.

show redundancy config-sync

To display a configuration synchronization failure or the ignored mismatched command list (MCL), if any, use the show redundancy config-sync command in EXEC mode.

show redundancy config-sync { failures { bem | mcl | prc } | ignored failures mcl }

Syntax Description

failures

Displays MCL entries or best effort method (BEM)/Parser Return Code (PRC) failures.

bem

Displays a BEM failed command list, and forces the standby switch to reboot.

mcl

Displays commands that exist in the switch’s running configuration but are not supported by the image on the standby switch, and forces the standby switch to reboot.

prc

Displays a PRC failed command list and forces the standby switch to reboot.

ignored failures mcl

Displays the ignored MCL failures.

Cisco IOS XE 3.2SE

This command was introduced.

Usage Guidelines

When two versions of Cisco IOS images are involved, the command sets supported by two images might differ. If any of those mismatched commands are executed on the active switch, the standby switch might not recognize those commands, which causes a configuration mismatch condition. If the syntax check for the command fails on the standby switch during a bulk synchronization, the command is moved into the MCL and the standby switch is reset. To display all the mismatched commands, use the show redundancy config-sync failures mcl command.

To clean the MCL, follow these steps:

  1. Remove all mismatched commands from the active switch's running configuration.
  2. Revalidate the MCL with a modified running configuration by using the redundancy config-sync validate mismatched-commands command.
  3. Reload the standby switch.

Alternatively, you could ignore the MCL by following these steps:

  1. Enter the redundancy config-sync ignore mismatched-commands command.
  2. Reload the standby switch; the system transitions to SSO mode.

    Note


    If you ignore the mismatched commands, the out-of-synchronization configuration on the active switch and the standby switch still exists.


  3. You can verify the ignored MCL with the show redundancy config-sync ignored mcl command.

Each command sets a return code in the action function that implements the command. This return code indicates whether or not the command successfully executes. The active switch maintains the PRC after executing a command. The standby switch executes the command and sends the PRC back to the active switch. A PRC failure occurs if these two PRCs do not match. If a PRC error occurs at the standby switch either during bulk synchronization or line-by-line (LBL) synchronization, the standby switch is reset. To display all PRC failures, use the show redundancy config-sync failures prc command.

To display best effort method (BEM) errors, use the show redundancy config-sync failures bem command.

This command has no arguments or keywords.

Command Default

None

Release Modification

Cisco IOS XE 3.2SE

This command was introduced.

Usage Guidelines

By default, the stack MAC address is not changed to the MAC address of the new active switch during a high availability (HA) failover. Use the stack-mac update force command to force the stack MAC address to change to the MAC address of the new active switch.

If the switch with the same MAC address as the stack MAC address is currently a member of the stack, the stack-mac update force command has no effect. (It does not change the stack MAC address to the MAC address of the active switch.)


Note


If you do not change the stack MAC address, Layer 3 interface flapping does not occur. It also means that a foreign MAC address (a MAC address that does not belong to any of the switches in the stack) could be the stack MAC address. If the switch with this foreign MAC address joins another stack as the active switch, two stacks will have the same stack MAC address. You must use the stack-mac update force command to resolve the conflict.


Examples

This example shows how to update the stack MAC address to the MAC address of the active switch:

Controller> stack-mac update force
Controller>

You can verify your settings by entering the show switch privileged EXEC command. The stack MAC address includes whether the MAC address is local or foreign.

standby console enable

To enable access to the standby console switch, use the standby console enable command in redundancy main configuration submode. To disable access to the standby console switch, use the no form of this command.

standby console enable

no standby console enable

Syntax Description

This command has no arguments or keywords.

Command Default

Access to the standby console switch is disabled.

Command Modes

Redundancy main configuration submode

Cisco IOS XE 3.2SE

This command was introduced.

Usage Guidelines

This command is used to collect and review specific data about the standby console. The command is useful primarily for Cisco technical support representatives troubleshooting the switch.

Examples

This example shows how to enter the redundancy main configuration submode and enable access to the standby console switch:

Controller(config)# redundancy
Controller(config-red)# main-cpu
Controller(config-r-mc)# standby console enable
Controller(config-r-mc)#

switch stack port

To disable or enable the specified stack port on the member, use the switch command in privileged EXEC mode on a stack member.

switch stack-member-number stack port port-number { disable | enable }

Syntax Description

stack-member-number

stack port port-number

Specifies the stack port on the member. The range is 1 to 2.

disable

Disables the specified port.

enable

Enables the specified port.

Command Default

The stack port is enabled.

Command Modes

Privileged EXEC

Command History

Release Modification

Cisco IOS XE 3.2SE

This command was introduced.

Usage Guidelines

A stack is in the full-ring state when all members are connected through the stack ports and are in the ready state.

The stack is in the partial-ring state when the following occurs:

  • All members are connected through their stack ports but some are not in the ready state.
  • Some members are not connected through the stack ports.

Note


Be careful when using the switch stack-member-number stack port port-number disable command. When you disable the stack port, the stack operates at half bandwidth.


If you enter the switch stack-member-number stack port port-number disable privileged EXEC command and the stack is in the full-ring state, you can disable only one stack port. This message appears:

Enabling/disabling a stack port may cause undesired stack changes. Continue?[confirm] 

If you enter the switch stack-member-number stack port port-number disable privileged EXEC command and the stack is in the partial-ring state, you cannot disable the port. This message appears:

Disabling stack port not allowed with current stack configuration.

Examples

This example shows how to disable stack port 2 on member 4:

Controller# switch 4 stack port 2 disable

switch priority

To change the stack member priority value, use the switch priority command in mode on the .

switch stack-member-number priority new-priority-value

Syntax Description

stack-member-number

Current stack member number. The range is 1 to 2.

new-priority-value

New stack member priority value. The range is 1 to 15.

The stack member with higher priority value receives high priority in the stack.

Command Default

The default priority value is 1.

Command Modes

Command History

Usage Guidelines

The new priority value is a factor when a new is elected. When you change the priority value the is not changed immediately.

Examples

This example shows how to change the priority value of stack member 6 to 8:

Controller switch 6 priority 8
Changing the Switch Priority of Switch Number 6 to 8
Do you want to continue?[confirm]

switch provision

To supply a configuration to a new switch before it joins the switch stack, use the switch provision command in global configuration mode on the . To delete all configuration information that is associated with the removed switch (a stack member that has left the stack), use the no form of this command.

switch stack-member-number provision type

no switch stack-member-number provision

Syntax Description

stack-member-number

Stack member number. The range is 1 to 2.

type

Switch type of the new switch before it joins the stack.

Command Default

The switch is not provisioned.

Command Modes

Global configuration

Command History

Release Modification

Cisco IOS XE 3.2SE

This command was introduced.

Usage Guidelines

For type, enter the model number of a supported switch that is listed in the command-line help strings.

To avoid receiving an error message, you must remove the specified switch from the switch stack before using the no form of this command to delete a provisioned configuration.

To change the switch type, you must also remove the specified switch from the switch stack. You can change the stack member number of a provisioned switch that is physically present in the switch stack if you do not also change the switch type.

If the switch type of the provisioned switch does not match the switch type in the provisioned configuration on the stack, the switch stack applies the default configuration to the provisioned switch and adds it to the stack. The switch stack displays a message when it applies the default configuration.

Provisioned information appears in the running configuration of the switch stack. When you enter the copy running-config startup-config privileged EXEC command, the provisioned configuration is saved in the startup configuration file of the switch stack.


Caution


When you use the switch provision command, memory is allocated for the provisioned configuration. When a new switch type is configured, the previously allocated memory is not fully released. Therefore, do not use this command more than approximately 200 times, or the switch will run out of memory and unexpected behavior will result.


Examples

This example shows how to provision a switch with a stack member number of 2 for the switch stack. The show running-config command output shows the interfaces associated with the provisioned switch.

Controller(config)# switch 2 provision WS-xxxx
Controller(config)# end
Controller# show running-config | include switch 2
!
interface GigabitEthernet2/0/1
!
interface GigabitEthernet2/0/2
!
interface GigabitEthernet2/0/3
<output truncated>

You also can enter the show switch user EXEC command to display the provisioning status of the switch stack.

This example shows how to delete all configuration information about stack member 5 when the switch is removed from the stack:

Controller(config)# no switch 5 provision

You can verify that the provisioned switch is added to or removed from the running configuration by entering the show running-config privileged EXEC command.

switch renumber

To change the stack member number, use the switch renumber command in mode on the .

switch current-stack-member-number renumber new-stack-member-number

Syntax Description

current-stack-member-number

new-stack-member-number

Command Default

The default stack member number is 1.

Command Modes

Command History

Release Modification

Cisco IOS XE 3.2SE

This command was introduced.

Usage Guidelines

If another stack member is already using the member number that you just specified, the assigns the lowest available number when you reload the stack member.


Note


If you change the number of a stack member, and no configuration is associated with the new stack member number, that stack member loses its current configuration and resets to its default configuration.


Do not use the switch current-stack-member-number renumber new-stack-member-number command on a provisioned switch. If you do, the command is rejected.

Use the reload slot current stack member number privileged EXEC command to reload the stack member and to apply this configuration change.

Examples

This example shows how to change the member number of stack member 6 to 7:
