AXSM-E Double Density

This feature doubles the number of ports previously available with each AXSM-E Service Module. Each AXSM-E Service Module supports up to two back cards. Previous to Release 3.0.10, only one was supported. The actual bandwidth supported by each card remains constant at 622 Mbps, but the additional ports allow better scaling of service provider networks using ABR with VS/VD support and per-connection traffic shaping.

This feature is supported on the MGX 8850 (PXM45) switch.

PXM1E-16-T1E1 with PNNI-IMA Trunking

PXM1E-16-T1E1 is a new PXM1E front card with support for two back cards RBBN-16-T1E1 and MCC-16-E1. PXM1E will provide up to 16 T1 or E1 ports with IMA Versions 1.0 and 1.1 support for PNNI trunking.


Note UNI support for the interfaces will be provided in a future software release.


T1 or E1 links (but not a mix) can be grouped to form IMA groups of links 1 to 16 in a single group. Both RBBN-16-T1E1 and the MCC-16-E1 back cards support 1:1 redundancy on PXM1E-16-T1E1. The maximum number of connections supported in a shelf with PXM1E-16-T1E1 as the processor card is 13,500 connections.

The PXM1E-16-T1E1 card is supported in the MGX 8830 and the MGX 8850 (PXM1E) switches.

AXSM-32-T1E1-E with PNNI-IMA Trunking

The AXSM-32-T1E1-E card is a double-height service module used on the PXM-45 based MGX 8850 platform. In this release, the AXSM-32-T1E1-E supports ATM cell transfer over a total of 32 T1/E1 interfaces. Up to two back cards of the same type (RBBN-16-T1E1 or MCC-16-E1) are supported with 16 T1/E1 interfaces per backcard. The AXSM-32-T1E1-E card supports a maximum of 32,096 connections. It supports enhanced traffic management capabilities with per-VC/VP traffic shaping and ABR with VS/VD along with multilevel statistics.

In this release, IMA Versions 1.0 and 1.1 are supported (PNNI trunking only).


Note UNI IMA will be available in a subsequent software release.


PXM-UI-S3/B Back Card

The PXM-UI-S3/B back card provides four serial ports and two Ethernet ports and Stratum-3 clock functionality for the PXM1E front cards.

MCC-16-E1

The MCC-16-E1 back card has sixteen E1 miniature coaxial connectors.

RBBN-16-T1E1

The RBBN-16-T1E1 back card has a "ribbon" type connector that supports sixteen T1 or E1 ports.

PXM1E Online Diagnostics

The feature provides the capability to configure a hardware-oriented test to check the health of the PXM cards—both active and standby. The test can be run in the active, standby, or both modes at the same time. The test is nonintrusive and runs with minimum overhead. The capability is provided as an option. The failure of online diagnostics in the active PXM1E card results in a switchover to the standby PXM1E card. The failure of the online diagnostics in the standby PXM1E card results in declaring the standby PXM1E card as failed. The feature is available for all the different PXM1E cards:

4OC3/STM1

8 T3/E3

16 T1/E1

T3E3/155

FRSM-12-T3E3 Online Diagnostics

This feature provides the capability to configure a hardware-oriented test to check the health of the FRSM-12-T3E3 card—both active and standby. The test can be run in active, standby, or both modes at the same time. The test is nonintrusive and runs with minimum overhead. The capability is provided as an option. The failure of online diagnostics in the active FRSM-12-T3E3 card results in a switchover to the standby FRSM-12-T3E3 card. The failure of the online diagnostics in the standby FRSM-12-T3E3 card results in declaring the standby FRSM-12-T3E3 card as failed. The failure of the standalone FRSM-12-T3E3 card results in the card being placed in the failed state but the card will not be reset.

MGX-SRME

This feature provides channelization and redundancy support for MGX-VISM-PR in a MGX 8850 (PXM45) chassis. The MGX-SRME card can take one OC-3 or one STM-1 as ingress, channelize the signal to a T1 or an E1 and distribute to an MGX-VISM-PR 8T1 or an MGX-VISM-PR 8E1 card via a distribution bus inside the MGX8850 (PXM45) chassis. For redundancy, a MGX-VISM-PR card can be configured as a standby card, so if one active MGX-VISM-PR card fails, MGX-SRME reroutes the traffic to the standby card. MGX-SRME also provides automatic protection switching (APS) capabilities on the ingress line. If one line fails, the other line takes over. APS protocols include GR-253, ITU-T Annex A and Annex B.

MGX-VISM-PR-8T1/8E1

This feature provides support for the MGX-VISM-PR-8T1/8E1 card on the MGX 8830 platform, and provides the capability for voice applications in this switch.

Alarm Filtering

The Alarm Filtering feature works in conjunction with Cisco WAN Manager (CWM) 11.0.10 to display a filtered integrated shelf alarm. The filtered integrated shelf alarm ignores all lines, ports, connections and feeder alarms reported by a given node. When the CWM GUI displays a group of nodes in group mode, the group's integrated alarm is the aggregation of all filtered alarms reported by the nodes in the group, and all trunk/line alarms reported by these nodes.

Enhancements

The product enhancement requests (PERs) in Table 2 were introduced in Release 3.0.10.

Table 2 List of Product Enhancement Requests in MGX Release 3.0.10 

Enhancement Number
Purpose

2291

The persistent topology feature provides CWM with a persistent view of the network, regardless of the current operational status of the nodes in the network. Topology information (IP address, node ID, feeder port ID, etc.) is stored in the persistent topology database for each node in the network. If a node is disconnected from the network due to some error scenario (the link went down, the node rebooted, etc.), CWM would still be able to retrieve information about this node from the persistent topology database. Starting with this release, the persistent topology database contains information on the routing and feeder nodes in the network.

5055

CLI commands provided to display VC/CoS thresholds in the AXSM-E QE.

5068

dspport on AXSM-E card and dsppnport on PXM card should display the same number of SVCs.

5267

Better clock resolution provided for tstdelay on AXSM-E cards.

HMM support is not available for IMA-32 and the Framer devices.

IMA link alarms, LIF and LODS integration times are not configurable.

An IMA group configured for Version 1.1 does not fall back to Version 1.0 if the far-end IMA group is configured with Version 1.0.

Auto-restart (persistent Rx IMA ID) feature is not supported.

When there is a switchover, it can take up to 3.5 seconds for the IMA groups to recover. Data is lost until the groups recover.

Support for UNI and virtual trunking on IMA groups is not available. But UNI and virtual trunking on non-IMA T1/E1 ATM lines is available.

Support for UNI IMA is not available.

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

ITC clocking mode on IMA is not supported.

Transmission delay of more than 500 ms on the T1/E1 IMA links is not supported.

GTSM (Group Traffic State Machine) up and down integration times should be configured to values of 0 (zero) only.

There is a 5-ms fluctuation on IMA delay tolerance.

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

Any changes to this IMA group configuration at NE are 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 or deleted from the IMA groups. The thresholds for the connections added when there are N links in the group can differ from the connections added when there are (N+1) links in the IMA group.

Round trip propagation delay of more than 1 second on IMA links is not supported.

The CLI clrimadelay or the corresponding SNMP set operation is issued to remove accumulated delay from an IMA group. While delay is being removed, the following CLIs must not be executed. They will return error if issued. The corresponding SNMP set operations will also be rejected:

delimagrp

cnfatmimagrp

cnfimagrp

upimagrp

dnimagrp

rstrtimagrp

addimalnk

clrimadelay

startimalnktst

cnfimalnktst

stopimalnktst

GTSM (Group Traffic State Machine) UP and DOWN integration times should be configured to a value of 0 for all IMA groups. Any positive value, especially the UP time, will delay the operational state of any port(s), configured on the IMA group, from becoming active. This can cause more than desired traffic loss during a card switchover.

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

Sub-slot and port identifiers do not correspond to the exact physical attribute for IMA and channelized interfaces as they used to in the old unchannelized interfaces. Refer to the DDTs issue CSCdy08500 for more information. The following apply to the AXSM-32-T1E1-E card in Release 3.0.10:

If the logical port on the SM is deleted, the corresponding pnport on the controller, that is, PXM45, should be deleted.

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.

PXM1E-16-T1E1

Only 10 SVC calls per second is guaranteed.

While the IMA group accumulated delay is being removed with the clrimadelay command, the following apply:

Any changes to this IMA group configuration at NE are 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.

Round trip propagation delay of more than 1 second on IMA links is not supported.

IMA link transition into Unusable state at *FE*

IMA link entrance into LIF failure at *NE*

Then the group will be restarted and it may take another 3 seconds to become operational. The group will be restarted even if delay process completes sooner and any of the operations listed above occurs.

GTSM (Group Traffic State Machine) UP and DOWN integration times should be configured to a value of 0 for all IMA groups. Any positive value, especially the UP time, will delay the operational state of any port(s), configured on the IMA group, from becoming active. This can cause more than desired traffic loss during a card switchover.

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

PXM1E

The maximum number of connections on the PXM1E cards (except for the PXM1E-16-T1E1 card) is 27K, and the maximum number of ports on these cards (except for the PXM1E-16-T1E1 card) is 4K.

The dspapsbkplane command does not work for the PXM1E-4-155 card.

An LOS condition on an APS line will not be reported by the dspalms command if both the following are true:

The PXM1E card has SONET lines, and

Either the APS line with the LOS condition is the Protection line for intracard APS, or the APS line with the LOS condition is the adjacent back card line for intercard APS. For example, if line 1 on slot 7 is the Working line and line 1 on slot 8 is the Protection line, then an LOS on line 1 in slot 8 will not be reported when dspalms is issued on slot 7, assuming slot 7 has the Active front card. The dspadjlnalm command will also not report LOS in this situation.

All other conditions (LOF, OOF, etc.) are reported correctly (refer to caveat CSCdy30310).

For uplink ports on all PXM1E cards, the standby controller card is not able to derive clock signals from the standby uplink port (daughter card) due to a hardware limitation. No data signals can be received on the standby card and clock signals cannot be recovered. On switchovers, the uplink clock sources will be requalified (refer to caveat CSCdy68971).

When a back card is inserted or removed, verify that the back card is accessible by reading a register on the back card. If the front card is not able to read the register, the back card will be put into the mismatch state. If the problem happens on the active card and if the standby card is available, card will be switched over. Otherwise the back card is put into mismatch state. If the problem also happens on the standby card, the backcard will be put into mismatch state. A message will be put into dsplog to show that the back card is not considered to be in a healthy state. This message should be ignored when it is logged when the card is in the Init (I) state. Only messages logged in either the Active (A) or Standby (S) states are valid.

When intercard APS is configured, the active front card takes control of the standby back card. The standby front card will not be able to determine the local back card health because it does not have control of its own back card. When intercard APS is configured for the PXM1E-COMBO (also known as PXM1E-T3E3-155) card, and if all the SONET lines on the standby card displays an alarm, the shellcon function dspAdjBcHealth(0) should be used to determine the alternate back card's health. This back card health detection is available only for the PXM1E-COMBO card (refer to caveat CSCdy39859).

PXM1E Online Diagnostics

Online diagnostics uses VPI=32 and VCI=31 for a connection setup. No other connection (data or control) should use this VPI/VCI pair. Using this VPI/VCI pair may result in the failure of the online diagnostics (if enabled) and the card will subsequently be placed in the failed state.

MGX-SRME

MGX-SRME APS provisioning will be blocked on all unsupported PXM45 cards and a proper warning message displayed.

This feature provides the capability to guard against fiber cut and line failures. It minimizes the traffic loss by switching to the protection line when it detects a problem on the working line.

This feature relies on the interrupt line coming from the MGX-SRME card to the PXM45B. PXM45B boards have an interrupt line to MGX-SRME card. MGX-SRME APS will work only on PXM45/B having 800-level part number equal or greater than 800-09266-03.

FRSM-12-T3E3

On an FRSM-VHS, all connections on a port with LMI enabled will have those connection statuses initialized to okay. If the connection is actually in LMI abit alarm, then the connection alarm will be updated to the correct state (LMI abit alarm) via asynchronous updates or the periodic full state update. On a resetcd on an FRSM-12-T3E3 card, all connections on a port with LMI enabled will have those connection statuses initialized to LMI abit alarm. If the connection is actually okay, then the connection alarm will be updated to the correct state (okay) via asynchronous updates or the periodic full state update. In either case, the connection alarm will be updated to the correct, current state. For the FRSM-VHS card, it starts in the okay state, and for FRSM-12-T3E3 card, it starts in the LMI abit alarm state (refer to caveat CSCdy28727).

For the cnfchanstdabr command, because of a hardware limitation, the NRM (number of cells per forward RM) range is now 4 to 256 (refer to caveat CSCdy05769).

FRSM-12-T3E3 Online Diagnostics

Online diagnostics can only detect problems; it does not have the capability to isolate problems.

AXSM-E Double Density

With the AXSM-E double density feature, the total bandwidth supported by each Service Module without blocking is 622 Mbps.

AXSM Cards

Do not enable offline diagnostics on AXSM cards in the APS 1+1 Op A mode. A possible loss of signal will occur when offline diagnostics are run on the AXSM cards in this configuration (refer to caveat CSCdy62950).

For AXSM OC-3 cards running in the Op B mode, a remote card switchover can occur by doing setrev on a local node. This problem occurs when more than twelve lines are configured for APS and the setrev command is issued. The mode of the AXSM card can be found by issuing the dspcd command. The card switchover on the remote node is happening because of flooding of several interrupts occurring on all the lines. The cause of the interrupt was the reset of both the cards on local node (refer to caveat CSCdy09027).

APS is supported on AXSM-1-2488/B after upgrading the card to Release 3.0.00 and up, and enabling the card to operate in the Op B mode.

The dspapsln/dspapslns/dspalms/dspalm commands on a standby AXSM card do not show the results consistent with an active card. When the cards are operating in the Op B mode (which can be found by issuing the dspcd command on an AXSM card), the standby card does not perform the alarm integration and APS is also not enabled on the standby card. All the defects or failures and statistics are dynamic events which are not sent to the standby card—the standby card is unable to show the correct faults as shown by the active card. These commands are not blocked on the standby card as these are useful for debugging purposes (refer to caveat CSCdx63098).

When there is an APS line between an AXSM card in the Op A mode and an AXSM card in the Op B mode, the working and protected lines can go into the SD (signal degraded) mode if the cards are set up for 1:1 intracard APS and SD is set to -7 upward. The problem is seen because of the behavior of the AXSM card in the Op A mode, and the problem exists only between an AXSM card in the Op B mode and an AXSM card in the Op A mode; it does not exist if both AXSM cards are in the Op B mode or in the Op A mode.

Whenever a switch is made on the AXSM card in the Op A mode, it does the bridging to the other line on which a switch is going to happen. In this duration, the AXSM card in the Op B mode notices the change in the BER count and although the BER count is very small, it is sufficient to declare Signal Degraded (SD) because of having the SD threshold set at -7 (refer to caveat CSCdy31269).

A standby AXSM card cannot sync up with an active AXSM card after loadrev to Release 3.0.10 if the redundant AXSM card has NNI ports and 40k connections configured, and both cards the 2.0(15.2) image. In the 2.0.x release, the LCN could be 0 but in later releases the ATLAS LCN 0 has been taken out from the pool. So for the cards with 4 ATLASs, the problem will be seen for the following LCNs while upgrading to Release 3.0.10 (refer to caveat CSCdy36202):

0

32 * 1024 = 32768

64 * 1024 = 65536

96 * 1024 = 98304

PNNI Limitation

There is a limitation in the ATM Forum PNNI specification on how the crankbacks are handled by the entry border nodes. If the entry border of a peer group cannot route a call to the destination node and if the cause of blocking was within the peer group, then the entry cranks back to the next higher level (page 246, point b.1.2 in the ATMF PNNI specification). This higher level crankback is translated to a blocked node of the logical group node and so the source node processing this crankback would treat the whole peer group to be blocked. If this entry border node crankback happens on the destination peer group or if it happens on the transit peer group that is the only route to reach the destination node, then the calls will not get routed.

SCT Files

With the changes for CSCdw80282, you must FTP the SCT files for all the service modules back to the PXM45/PXM1E controller cards after a clrallcnf command is issued. These files are removed because they are considered to be nodal configuration files and are deleted from the C:/SCT and the F:/SCT directories.

With the changes for CSCdw80303, the SCT files for all the service modules are saved. The valid SCT files in C:/SCT and F:/SCT and their subdirectories are saved in a zip file along with the other configuration information. When the configuration is restored, the saved SCT files will be copied into the C:/SCT and the F:/SCT directories, and will overwrite any files in those directories.

Users should not use AXSM SCT files with an SCT ID greater than 255. If a value greater than 255 is used, CWM will not be able to syncup those SCT files.

Persistent Topology

If the node ID is changed on a remote node, then the new node ID value is automatically saved into the entry corresponding to that remote node on the gateway node. There is no longer a need to manually delete the old node ID value from the gateway node. Note that this behavior is different from Release 3.0.00.

However, if a remote node is downed, the gateway node is reset, the node ID of the remote node is changed, and the remote node is connected to the network again, the gateway node will store the new node ID as a new entry instead of overwriting the old entry with the new node ID. In this situation, the procedure for node ID change stated in the Release Notes for 3.0.00 should be used.

Reroute Call Performance Changes

For better call performance on PXM45B cards, the following commands need to be issued after the upgrading to Release 3.0.10:

1. cnfnodalcongth -connpendlo 750 -connpendhi 1000

2. cnfnodal congth -setuphi 1000

Then perform the following commands at both ends of the NNI links:

3. confintcongth <physical port> -setuphi 500

4. cnfpnctlvc <physical port> sscop -scr 3000


Note These parameters are recommended only for the PXM45B cards and not for the PXM45A or the PXM1E cards.


Clocking Limitations

The clock sources will be requalified when auto-revertive mode is changed using the cnfclksrc command.

The dspclksrcs command may display status as configuring on the new Active controller card just after a switchover even though the clock sources are configured and latched to one of the clock sources. However, this inconsistency in the display is transient and the display is corrected after few seconds.

The standby controller card doesn't monitor the uplink clock sources. As a result, the standby controller card doesn't generate alarm if an uplink clock source becomes unlockable. The information showed by the dspstbyclksrcs command may be incorrect for the uplink clock sources on the standby controller card.

There is no action initiated either on the Active controller card or on the Standby controller card if none of the configured clock sources is good, the time period for the hold-over mode has expired (more then 24 hours since neither primary nor secondary clock source became unlockable) and the local oscillator used for free running is not functional. However, alarms are raised and events are logged under these conditions.

Once the secondary clock source becomes the active clock source when the primary clock source became unlockable, the primary clock source is not monitored or qualified. As a result, it is not reverted to primary clock source when the primary clock source becomes stable even though auto-revertive mode is enabled. The workaround to get the primary clock source get monitored and relatched to is to reconfigure the primary clock source. This will force the primary clock source to be requalified and relatched.

The controller card attempts to reprogram a clock source on the Service Module(s) if the clock source is configured to be taken from a port on a Service Module when one of the following occurs:

A Narrow Band Service Module switchover and a clock source is configured to be taken from a port on that Service Module

A Broadband Service Module switchover

A port on any Broadband Service Module is administratively upped

An active Broadband Service Module rebuild is completed

A Narrowband Service Module has rebuilt and a clock source is configured to be taken from a port on that Service Module. If the controller card fails to reprogram the clock source on the Service Module under the above circumstances, the network clocking hardware on the controller card is deprogrammed to not take the clock source from that Service Module. Under these circumstances, the clock source needs to be reconfigured to reattempt to program the clock source on the Service Module.

Additional Limitations

Currently, an error message is displayed when the primary card is in the standby state and the secondary card is in the active state for 1:1 redundancy. The issue is a design limitation, and the error message "Primary card is not Active" is displayed (refer to caveat CSCdy41074).

During a burnboot command execution on an AUSM, CESM, or FRSM card, the switchredcd or switchcc commands are not blocked. Both switchover scenarios can cause the burnboot activity to terminate abnormally, which will most likely result in a damaged card.

There will be resource (LCN, VPI/VCI) leaks on UNI ports if SPVC connections are derouted while a UNI port is down due to card removal or dnport (see caveat CSCdx57063).

The switchcc command results in requalification of the primary or secondary clock sources if on the newly active card the primary or secondary clock sources were not qualified before switchcc. On the active card, the nonactive clock source is requalified upon executing the switchcc, resetcd, or dnport commands (refer to caveat CSCdx30282).

The default setupHi value for PXM45A has been reduced from 180 to 120. This is the number of SETUPs that the node will admit in a second, before it starts to drop the incoming SETUPs. The default thresholds for the following controller cards remain the same:

Release 3.0.00 Limitations

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). Because 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 users get 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 will not be any policing because the ATLAS would do policing at rate 1428571 only.

Refer to caveats CSCdw72256, CSCdw72459, CSCdw72971, CSCdw73652, CSCdw67564 for more information.

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 a 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, ICG and RSD are truncated. In this example, we have the following scenario:

Refer to caveats CSCdw89558, CSCdw85738, CSCdw89101, or CSCdw89123 for more information.

PXM1E-based Switches

MPLS controller is not supported on PXM1E cards.

PXM1E clock source is supported by VISM, CESM, and AUSM narrow band service module cards. The VISM card can provide two clock sources, primary or secondary. CESM and AUSM can provide only one source, either primary or secondary.

Only SPVCs and SPVPs are supported on narrow band service modules. SVCs are not supported on NBSM.

No bandwidth CACing support on the narrow band service modules, except for the MGX-RPM-PR-256/512 which is checked against the OC-3 card rate. Bandwidth CACing is supported on PXM1E uplink port.

The maximum bandwidth to be distributed among narrow band service modules is ~OC10 while traffic on the network interfaces 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 cannot 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 to 6 and 17 to 22, and CBC1 supports slots 9 to 14 and 25 to 30. On an MGX 8830, CBC0 supports slots 3, 5, 10, and 12, and CBC1 supports slots 4, 6, 11, and 13.

The PXM1E with a UI-S3 card will drop up to 70 percent of outgoing Ethernet packets to specific switches. Use an approved Cisco hub/switch. This only applies to packets sent on the UI-S3 Ethernet interface. Known incompatible hubs are HP8000ProCurve and Netgear FS108.


Caution For narrowband service modules cards, whenever T1 or T3 cards are replaced with E1 or E3 cards, or vice versa, the clrsmcnf command for that slot must be used.

Reserved VCIs

The following are the reserved VCIs that the customer cannot provision:

vpi=0, vci=5 is used for SSCOP for UNI signaling ports (UNI, none ports do not need signaling). If it is a virtual terminal or EVUNI, then the minimum vpi and the VCI=5 are used for SSCOP.

vpi=0, vci=18 is used for PNNI RCC (if the port is not NNI, or Virtual NNI, then you do not need this).

vpi=0, vci=16 is used for ILMI if ILMI is enabled. Similarly, for virtual terminal or EVUNI, it is minimum vpi and vci=16.

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

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

FRSM-12-T3E3

The FRSM-12-T3E3 card does not have the capability of supporting E3 signals.

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 the rare case of full line rate sub 15-byte frames; therefore, the hardware will only support Port Level Congestion Management in the Frame Relay domain.

BERT: Not supported.

Sub-rate DS3: Not supported.

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

4 bytes header length with Stratcom LMI is not supported.

LMI on Frame Forwarding port is not supported.

If LMI is configured, port header length cannot be changed.

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

Single-ended SPVC can only originate from FRSM12-T3E3. Termination on SPVC of single-ended SPVC is not supported.

chanType cannot be modified.

If Port header length is 2 bytes, the maximum 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 Frame Forward connection, the port should be of type Frame Forward.

For Frame Forward port, the maximum connections is 1.

For Frame Relay port, the maximum connections is 4000.

The maximum number of frame relay connections is 16K.

If the connection is in loopback, it cannot be modified.

CIR can only be 0 for uBR connections.

If CIR == 0, BC should also be zero, BE, and zeroCirConEir should be nonzero.

If CIR != 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

As the firmware does not audit the disk space usage and remove unused files, the disk space in C: and E: drives should be manually monitored. 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 should be promptly deleted manually. Following this procedure allows you to avoid shortage of disk space to successfully 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.

Non-native Controller Front Card and HDD Card

When a nonnative PXM1E or HDD back card is inserted in the standby controller slot, the firmware does not clean up the drives which have free disk space below 30 percent. When the standby controller card comes up, it needs to be verified whether the contents have been cleaned up.

When a nonnative PXM1E or HDD back card is inserted in the standby controller slot, the firmware does not clean up the nonauto configuration files in the E:RPM directory. These nonauto configuration files in the E:RPM directory have to be manually cleaned up after the standby controller card becomes ready.

Due to the checks for nonnative cards, when the controller front or HDD cards are swapped in the same node, the controller card that attempts to come up as active may get reset twice.

When a nonnative HDD card is inserted into the standby controller slot, verify that after the card becomes ready in the standby controller slot, its hard disk contents are deleted and synchronized the relevant files from the Active card.

clrsmcnf Command

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 reissued 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 mismatch state.

If the clrsmcnf command is given with the option to clear the software version for the slot as well, then the card will go into the failed 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.

The clrsmcnf command will not work for redundant service modules.

The clrsmcnf command will not work if an upgrade is in progress.

If MGX-RPM-PR-256/512 or MGX-RPM-XF-512 is configured as an LSC (Label Switch Controller), execution of clrsmcnf command on those LSC slots will be rejected, as designed.

The clrsmcnf command does not work if the controller exists for the slot.

APS

For AXSM-B APS, the back card of the active card must be present for APS to function.

The new commands dspadjlnalm and dspadjlnalmcnt are now supported on AXSMB.

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 card, the LEDs always remain green whether the lines are in LOS irrespective of which lines are active (refer to caveat CSCdv68576).

Path and Connection Trace

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 feature in Release 3.0.00 and higher is not compatible with the path and connection trace available with previous releases.

SNTP

The CWM MIB is not supported in Release 3.0.00 and higher.

Priority Routing

Prioritized reroute of SPVCs is not guaranteed, if the SPVCs originate on a signaling port. We might see SPVCs getting routed out-of-order. In-order routing of SPVCs is guaranteed on nonsignaling ports.

The MGX-RPM-PR-256/512 does not support configuration of routing priority. All RPM mastered SPVCs will be assigned a routing priority of 8 by the PXM.

The addcon command on VISM does not have support for specifying the routing priority. All the SPVCs added from VISM are assigned a priority of 8. The routing priority can be changed using the cnfpncon command.

Changing the routing priority for DAX connections will not change the priority of the associated pn-cons (SVCs). This is because the SPVCs will not be derouted and rerouted if just the endpoint parameters are changed, and routing priority is an endpoint parameter. Also, because DAX connections are never derouted, even when the UNI port goes down and the 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 use the dncon and upcon commands. Because DAX connections are never derouted, the effect of this limitation is voided.

Priority routing operates in a best effort manner. This is because of 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, we will start to route lower priority SPVCs and we will get to the higher priority SPVCs at a later point in time.

SPVC Interop

NNI SPVC Addendum Version 1.0 is not supported.

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

Terminating single-ended SPVCs on AUSMs, CESMs, or FRSMs is not supported.

Origination of single-ended spvcs (with -slavepersflag) from AUSMs, FRSMs, CESMs, VISMs and RPMs is not supported.

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

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

The tstdelay command is not be available at the slave end of a single-ended SPVC on a switch.

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

If single-ended SPVCs are originated from 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, because no value addition is seen for interoperability.

SPVC statistics are not 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 are alone supported:

spvcoverridesvc

spvcoverridesvp

spvpoverridesvp.

Preferred Route

Upgrading a preferred routing configured connection from any Release 3.0.x will be nongraceful. 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.

The preferred routes can be specified only within a PNNI single peer group meaning all the nodes in the preferred route lie within the same peer group.

All the nodes in the network should be running Release 3.0.00 software to use the preferred route feature.

All the links specified in the preferred route should be PNNI links.

If a node in the PNNI network changes its PNNI node ID, the old entry in the persistent topology database in all the nodes in the network need to be deleted. If any of the preferred routes in any nodes in the network contains the changed node as one of the hops, the preferred route(s) must be modified using the new table index (in the persistent topology database) allocated for the changed node.

If a node in the PNNI network is deleted via configuration commands from the persistent topology database, if any of the preferred routes configured at that node (where the delete command is executed) contains the deleted node as one of the hops, the preferred route(s) must be deleted/modified manually.

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.

Due to differences in physical port numbering, non-Cisco nodes can only be the terminating nodes in a preferred route.

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.).

The preferred route configuration is available using only the CLI at the PXM controller. The configuration of the preferred route will be available with the CWM proxy service agent in a future CWM release.

Persistent Topology

In a mixed network of pre-Release 3.0.00 and 3.0.00 or later nodes, only the node name and the node ID will be shown for a pre-Release 3.0.00 node in the topology database. This is because the feature is not present in pre-Release 3.0.00 nodes.

If a peer group is made up of physical nodes with pre-Release 3.0.00 release logical nodes, then the information for the logical node will be stored in the topology database, because there is no way to distinguish between physical nodes and pre-Release 3.0.00 release logical nodes. Logical nodes with Release 3.0.00 or later will not be stored in the topology database.

To delete a node information entry from the topology database, 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 topology database. This is done because, even if a node is removed from the topology database 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 topology database within that hour's time, and the node does switchcc/reboot, then it is possible that the node info for that deleted node will be added back into the topology database.

When the node ID of a node is changed, the old node ID is added back into the topology database as a new node entry. In addition, the old node ID will still be stored in the topology database of all the other nodes in the peer group. In order to delete this entry, wait for an hour so that the PTSEs with the old node ID is flushed from the topology database of all the nodes in the peer group, and then delete the information of the old node ID from the topology database.

It is possible that the gateway nodes are not in synchronicity 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 peer group, and another gateway node is configured, then the information 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 you delete a node from the peer group, the node information must be deleted from all the nodes in that PG, even the non-gateway-node nodes. Otherwise, the node information 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.

NCDP

FRSM:NO clock sources supported on FRSM. So if the root clock is chosen to be a port on FRSM it will be a bad clock source and we will compute a new root clock source. Ideally, no clock source should be configured on FRSM.

If a clock source goes bad, there is no way to find out if it has become good. If the user wants NCDP to consider that clock source again, the user needs to re-add the clock source.

Suppose a root clock source is configured on NBSM which is in redundant configuration. If a switchover of the NBSM is done there might be loss of clocking for some time.

Currently there is no way for the user to know what is the secondary (second best) clock source in NCDP mode. This might create problems for the user who is trying to delete/modify the partition on the line carrying the secondary best clock source.

Revertive option is not provided in NCDP.

Manual Clocking

AUSM can support only one clock. If a second clock is configured on the same AUSM card AUSM will send a NACK. When the second clock is sent a NACK, no warning or message is given by the CLI. The NAK can only be found out by looking through the logs. The second clock configured on the AUSM will not be reflected in the clocking database.

If the line carrying the primary or the secondary clock source goes in alarm and a switchcc command is used on the switch, the clock configuration for the line in alarm is removed. The clock configuration will also be removed if any card is rebooted when the clocking line is in alarm. This only applies to AXSM and VISMs.

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

When the resetcd command is used on a service module, the primary and secondary (if configured) clock sources are recommitted even though the primary or secondary clock source is not a port on the service module that was reset. Recommitted means that the primary and secondary clock source 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.

The clock will not revert if the clock switched due to frequency drift.

AXSM

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 condition 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.

It is recommended 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 caveat CSCdw63829).

VISM Limitations

The release notes are identified by switch name and release number (for example, MGX 8850 (PXM45), Release 3.0.10.

RPM-PR and RPM-XF Limitations

Starting with Release 3.0.00, Route Processor Module (RPM) cards have their own release notes. For details on the MGX-RPM-PR-256/512 cards, refer to the Release Notes for Cisco MGX Route Processor Module (RPM/B and RPM-PR) for MGX Release 1.2.11 and MGX Release 3.0.10 or the Release Notes for Cisco MGX Route Processor Module (MGX-RPM-XF-512) for MGX 8850 (PXM45) Release 3.0.10.

Restrictions for Release 3.0.10

AXSM-32-T1E1-E

Maximum number of user connections is 32096.

Maximum number of links in an IMA group is 16.

PNNI requires that SCR be equal to 453 cells per second and PCR be equal to 969 cells per second for the control connection.

SSCOP requires that SCR be equal to 126 cells per second and PCR be equal to 2000 cells/second.

PXM1E-16-T1E1

Maximum number of connections is 13500.

Maximum number of links in an IMA group is 16.

PNNI requires that SCR be equal to 453 cells per second and PCR be equal to 969 cells per second for the control connection.

SSCOP requires that SCR be equal to 126 cells per second and PCR be equal to 2000 cells per second.

Restrictions for Release 3.0.00

AXSM Model B Restrictions

The enableaxsmbaps command is a PXM CLI command required to turn on additional APS features on AXSM/B cards in Releases 3.0.x and up. By issuing this command, the card operating mode becomes AXSM Op B. This command is required only while upgrading configured cards with Release 3.0.x images. If the AXSM/B cards do not have any configuration and are upgraded with Release 3.0.x, then the card operating mode would be made as AXSM Op B and it is not required to issued the enableaxsmbaps command.

The command has the following syntax:

enableaxsmbaps <primary | secondary slot>

The enableaxsmbaps command should be given after the completion of upgrading to Release 3.0.x. The following requirements are needed to change the card operating mode to AXSM Op B:

For redundant cards, both the cards should be AXSM/B cards and the image on both cards should be Release 3.0.x and up.

For non-redundant cards, the card should be an AXSM/B and the image should be Release 3.0.x and up.

Formatting Disks

The hard disks should not be formatted with the Release 3.0.00 backup boot or runtime firmware. The Release 3.0.00 firmware initializes the disks with DOS File System Version 2.0 where as the earlier 2.x releases use DOS File System Version 1.0. As a result, if the hard disks are formatted with Release 3.0.00 firmware, those disks will become unusable in nodes running Release 2.x firmware. Because Release 3.0.00 firmware is backward compatible, it can use hard disks with DOS File System Version 1.0.

Saving Configurations

The C disk drive should not be used for saving multiple older configurations, images, and core dumps. The disk space on this drive is needed to save event logs and configurations, and the logs and configurations will not be correctly saved if there is inadequate disk space.

Other Limitations and Restrictions

PXM disk sync verification will not work if an upgrade is in progress.

The maximum number of connections supported in Release 3.0.00 is 250K connections with the PXM45/B controller cards.

Load sharing will not be enabled automatically if upgrading from a lower revision that has load sharing disabled.

Path and connection trace are not supported between different peer groups.

On AXSM cards, 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 (0-255).

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 using the clrallcnf command, you must clean up old SCT files (refer to caveat CSCdw80282).

Limitations and Restrictions for 2.1.x

This section is extracted from the MGX 2.1.79 release notes. It describes the following issues for Releases 2.1.60 through 2.1.80:

General limitations, restrictions, and notes

APS management information and open issues

Clearing the configuration on redundant PXM45/B cards

General Limitations, Restrictions, and Notes

The following limitations and restrictions apply to this release.

Presently, the PXM CLI allows for provisioning of a PNNI controller (controller id 2) on any slot in the chassis, but for this release, such provisioning should be restricted to slot 7 only.

The maximum number of logical interfaces (physical trunks, virtual trunks, logical ports) supported in this release with the PXM45 card is 99, and for PXM45B cards it is 192. Of the 192 PNNI interfaces, up to 100 interfaces can be signaling ports. The other 92 interfaces should be non-signaling ports, such as non self-supporting ports.

AXSM-1-2488 and AXSM-1-2488/B cards do not have a policing function enabled.

The front card hardware (motherboard/daughterboard) for each card type can support up to two back cards. But in Release 2.1.80, only one AXSM-E back card (that is, half the port capacity available in hardware) is supported by software. The full port capacity will be supported with a future software release. No hardware changes will be required.

In Multiple Peer Group (MPG) mode, when one switches over to the standby on a PGL node with three levels, it can take several minutes on the standby card for this PGL to come up and the SVC based RCC to setup. This is normal behavior, because PNNI does not support hot redundancy. For a switchover, the entire PNNI database must be rebuilt. (It is like a reboot for PNNI, even though the active calls are not affected.)

Trace information captured in the error logs of non-PXM slots (seen with the dsperr -sl <slotnum> command) will not translate addresses in the trace to correct symbolic names. Such files with trace data need to be moved off the system using FTP and forwarded to TAC and engineering.

Support for three controllers only (one for PNNI and two for LSC). Controller ID 2 is reserved for a PNNI controller; IDs 3 to 20 are available for LSC controllers.

Partition ID 1 is reserved for PNNI.

The maximum number of logical interfaces (physical trunks, virtual trunks, logical ports) supported in this release with PXM45 cards is 99 and PXM45/B cards is 192.

If an active AXSM card is stuck in the active INIT state, the standby PXM will not go to the standby ready state until the active AXSM goes to a steady state. The steady states are: active ready, failed, mismatch, empty, empty reserved, and standby ready. With redundancy configured, if a standby AXSM card is stuck in a standby init state, with an active AXSM already in a active ready state, the standby PXM will go to the standby ready state without delay. If both AXSMs in the redundancy pair are not in a steady state, then the standby PXM will not go to the standby ready state until one or both of the two AXSM cards are in the active ready state.

If the destination address is reachable for both an IISP and a PNNI link from the same node, ABR connections will not route. The current routing algorithm will always choose IISP links over PNNI links because it is local. Because IISP does not support ABR connections, the connection setup will fail.

In this release, a Service Class Template (SCT) can be changed with connections present. However, if the change affects services in use, the connections will be rerouted.

When CWM is used to manage the network, the IP address 10.0.x.x cannot be used as the LAN address (lnPci) for the switch.

Caveat CSCdx29956 information—the release note enclosure contains these fields:

Symptom: Cellbus clock configuration defaults after a power cycle.

Condition: Set one of the cell bus clock speeds to 42 MHz and power cycle the node.

Workaround: Re-configure cell bus clock after a node rebuild.

If there are MGX-RPM-PR-256/512 card(s) in the node, after clrallcnf, the standby controller card takes longer to come up. The more MGX-RPM-PR-256/512 cards in the node, the longer the standby controller takes to come up. This also happens when the standby controller card is coming up, and MGX-RPM-PR-256/512 cards are inserted into slots that were not previously used for MGX-RPM-PR-256/512 cards.

Limitations for rteopt via Parallel Links

This section lists limitations for rteopt via parallel link. Use Figure 1 as you work through the scenarios in this section.

Figure 1 Configuration Example for rteopt via Parallel Link

The configuration for Figure 1 and the scenarios in this section are as follows:

Link 1 has forward and backward admin weight set to 500 (via cnfpnni-intf).

Link 2 has forward and backward admin weight set to 1000.

Link 3 has forward and backward admin weight set to 2000.

SPVC connection is routed from Node A to Node C (Master endpoint is at Node A) via link 1 and link 2.

Scenario 1: Link 2 is down (for example, by using the dnpnport command), connections are rerouted right away but Node A has not had that information updated in the routing tables yet.

SPVC on Node A will have routing cost = 2*500 + 2*1000 = 3000, but since link 2 is down, Node B will choose link 3. The routing cost on Node A SPVC is still 3000 as it did the calculation during the route search.

If link 2 is up, if you use a rteopt command on Node A to obtain the new route, and the new path selected has a cost of 3000.

Because SPVC has 3000, it does not reroute through link 2.

Scenario 2: Instead of link 2 being down, if there is a crankback on link 2, the same result stated above occurs.

Scenario 3 (for CBR and VBR): Link selection is set as maxavcr, maxcr, or random on Node B (by using the cnfpnni -selection command) If link 2 has less bandwidth than link 3, and the link selection criteria at Node B is set to maxavcr, Node A will still put the cost as 3000 with least aw calculation, but Node B will choose link 3 (even though it is costlier) because it has more bandwidth.

Scenario 4 (for ABR and UBR): Link selection does not apply to ABR and UBR (by using the cnfpnni -selection command). This is exactly the same as Scenario 3 because ABR and UBR follow load balancing on parallel links instead of choosing the minaw link.

Scenario 5 (for all types of service categories): After call setup, if the admin weight is increased on the link on which the call is routed, the routing cost calculated during the call setup will not get changed. So if a rteopt is done after increasing admin weights on the existing links on the connection path, the connections will not get optimized to take the newer path.

Workaround

If you use the dnpnport command on link 2 (connections will be routed via link 3), after using the uppnport command on link 2, then use the cnfpnni-intf command to change the existing administrative weight on link 2 to a lesser value, for example, 800 (from 1000).

When the optrte command is used at Node A, routing cost will be = 2*500 + 800(fwd) + 1000 (bwd) = 2800 for the new route of link 2.

Because all SPVC connections have 3000 as the routing cost, connections will be rerouted on link 2.

Important Notes

This section provides general notes that apply to this release, and covers some procedures that are not yet in the manuals.

You must use the SCT files released with Version 2.1.80 (number 2 and 3, which were included in Version 2.0.13 are similar to number 2 and 3 for 2.1.80) for the Control VC feature. If you are using the MPLS feature, then you will need to change to SCT 4 or 5, which were released with Version 2.1.00.

By default, 2000 cps and 543 cps will be reserved for SSCOP and PNNI Signalling VC respectively, even when you disable SSCOP and PNNI. These values are configurable by the cnfpnctlvc command.

Do not execute the delcontroller command when connections/ports still exist. The impact of executing delcontroller with connections is that the connections cannot be recovered until the controller is re-added using addcontroller and the AXSM cards or the entire node has to be reset (otherwise ports remain in the provisioning state). There is now a warning to the user of the impact of the command when there are existing connections/ports.

Analysis of the code has identified a situation which has a low probability of occurring and in fact has not been encountered in any test scenarios to date. This caution and associated workaround is provided as a precautionary measure. When the link bandwidth for SPVC connections is reaching full capacity, making minimal bandwidth available for new SPVC connections, a condition can be encountered where the initial software check believes there is sufficient bandwidth for the new SPVC connection. However, the final software confirmation for available bandwidth may be rejected because there is no bandwidth available. If this problem occurs, the system will recover when the PNNI updates are refreshed. (This will happen at the default time of 30 minutes.) The user can recover from this problem by making the Administrative weight of that link very high to avoid that link from being used.

When the switch cannot automatically resolve nativity check conflicts, you can force a configuration rebuild from a specific hard disk by establishing a console port session through the corresponding PXM-UI-S3 card and issuing the shmRecoverIgRbldDisk command. This command ignores the nativity check and configures the entire switch according to the configuration on the hard disk.

PNNI default minimum VCI is 35 unless changed explicitly. The reason for the default is to reserve VCI=32-34 for other control purposes (for example, MPLS and NCDP). For users who would like to add MPLS controller in future releases of MGX 8850, it is highly recommend to set the min-vci value to be 35 or more for all partitions on the port where the MPLS partition will be added. By doing so, the TDP sig vc for MPLS will be established automatically on 0/32. Minimum VPI is not negotiated by ILMI, so the user should set this parameter the same on both nodes.

APS Management Information

The following tips apply to the use of the dspapsbkplane command and the APS connector, which is sometimes called a backplane. The APS connector must be installed to enable intercard APS.

The APS dspapsln, dspapslns, switchapsln, and dspapsbkplane commands were modified in release 2.1.70.


Note The dspadjlnalm and dspadjlnalmcnt commands are new to Release 3.0.00. The dspadjlnalmcnt command is supported on AXSM-E and AXSM/B.


The APS dspadjlnalm command was new to release 2.1.70. Refer to the Release Notes for MGX 8850 Command Reference for Release 2.1 at the following location for further details about the commands mentioned in these release notes:

http://www.cisco.com/univercd/cc/td/doc/product/wanbu/8850r21/index.htm


Note The issues in this section are seen only in Operational mode 1+1, bidirectional, Rev/non-Rev. If at least one side is configured as 1+1 unidirectional, these problems do not occur.


The following are some open issues in this release:

Reset of active AXSM/A or AXSM/B, removal of active AXSM/A or AXSM/B, or AXSM/A or AXSM/B card switchover may cause the lines behind that card to be in an LOS status for 20ms to 30ms. If these lines were active at the time, some additional APS switch will occur; and the corresponding lines at the far-end will be in SF alarms before the standby AXSM card comes up. The momentary loss of signal is due to the hardware limitation; no other workaround is available. (Refer to caveat CSCdu41763—P-comment and CSCdv01058—Eng-Note for more details.)

For AXSM/A hardware only: If multiple active lines are removed at the same time, one line may not switch over.

To recover, either perform a lockout of Protection line and Clear from the far end or perform delete APS for the line, then add the APS line back.

Preparing for Intercard APS

The following components are required for intercard APS:

Two front cards.

Two back cards for every bay hosting APS lines. All lines on cards used for intercard APS must operate in APS pairs or use Y cables.

An APS connector installed between the two back cards for every bay hosting APS lines.

Use the dspapsbkplane command on both the standby and active card to verify that the APS connector is plugged in properly. The following example shows the results displayed by the dspapsbkplane command when the APS connector is in place:

M8xx0_NY.1.AXSM.a > dspapsbkplane

Remote Front Card : ABSENT 
Top Back Card     : ENGAGED 
Bottom Back Card  : NOT-ENGAGED 

Note The dspapsbkplane command should be used only when the standby card is in the Ready state. When the standby card is booting or fails, intercard APS cannot work properly and this command displays NOT ENGAGED.


If the dspapsbkplane command displays the APS Line Pair does not exist message, suspect that the APS is not configured on a line.

If the dspapsbkplane command shows different values for each of the two cards, suspect that the APS connector is seated properly on one card but not on the other.

The APS connector status is the same for all lines in a single bay because the APS connector interconnects two back cards within the same bay. You need to enter the dspapsbkplane command only once to display the APS connector status for both upper and lower bays.

Enter the dspapslns command to verify APS configuration. If the working and protection lines show OK, both lines are receiving signals from the remote note.

Managing Intercard APS Lines

In AXSM and AXSM/B intercard APS, either front card can be active, and can be connected to either APS line through the APS connector joining the two back cards. The following process describes how intercard APS communication works:

1. The signal leaves the front card at the remote end of the line. (See Figure 2 and Figure 3.)

2. The signal passes through the APS connector and both back card transmit ports at the remote end of the line. (See Figure 2 and Figure 3.)

3. The signal travels through both communication lines to the receive ports on both back cards at the local end. (See Figure 2 and Figure 3.)

4. The active front card processes the signal that is received on the active line. (See Figure 2 and Figure 3.)

5. The standby card monitors only the status of the standby line. (See Figure 2 and Figure 3.)

6. If necessary, the signal passes through the APS connector to the front card. (See Figure 3.)


Note For AXSM, the front card monitors only one of the receive lines. For AXSM/B, the front card monitors both the receive lines.


Figure 2 shows an example of how this process operates in a standard APS configuration, where the primary card monitors the working line and the secondary card monitors the protection line.

Figure 2 Standard APS Configuration

Figure 3 shows an example of how the APS communication process operates in a crossed APS configuration, where the secondary card monitors the working line that is attached to the primary card, and the primary card monitors the protection line that is connected to the secondary card.

Figure 3 Crossed APS Configuration

Line failures are always detected at the receive end of the line. This is where a switchover occurs when a failure is detected. Two different types of switchovers can occur, depending on whether the APS was configured as unidirectional or bidirectional in the cnfapsln command:

When a failure occurs on a line configured for unidirectional switching, the switch changes lines at the receive end only. A switchover is not necessary at the transmit end because the transmitting back cards send signals on both lines in the 1 +1 APS configuration.

When a failure occurs on a line configured for bidirectional switching, a switchover occurs at both ends of the line.

If the status of the standby line is good, a switchover from the failed active line to the standby is automatic.

Enter the cnfapsln command to enable an automatic switchover back to the working line after it recovers from a failure, as shown in the following example:

M8xx0_LA.1.AXSM.a > cnfapsln -w 1.1.1 -rv 2

Table 18 describes the configurable parameters for the cnfapsln command.

Table 18 The cnfapsln Command Parameters 

Parameter
Description

-w <working line>

Slot number, bay number, and line number of the active line to configure, in the format:

slot.bay.line

Example: -w 1.1.1

-sf <signal fault ber>

A number between 3 and 5 indicating the Signal Fault Bit Error Rate (BER), in powers of 10:

3 = 10-3

4 = 10-4

5 = 10-5

Example: -sf 3

-sd <SignalDegradeBER>

A power if 10 in the range 5 to 9 that indicates the Signal Degrade Bit Error Rate (BER):

5 = 10-5

6 = 10-6

7 = 10-7

8 = 10-8

9 = 10-9

Example: -sd 5

-wtr <Wait To Restore>

The number of minutes to wait after the failed working line has recovered, before switching back to the working line. The range is 5 to 12.

Example: -wtr 5

-dr <direction>

Determines whether the line is unidirectional or bidirectional.

1 = Unidirectional. The line switch occurs at the receive end of the line.

2 = Bidirectional. The line switch occurs at both ends of the line.

Note This optional parameter is not shown in the above example because you do not need to set it for a revertive line.

Example: -dr 2

-rv <revertive>

Determines whether the line is revertive or non-revertive.

1 = Non-revertive. You must manually switch back to a recovered working line.

2 = Revertive. APS automatically switches back to a recovered working line after the number of minutes set in the -wtr parameter.

Example: -rv 1


If you want to manually switch from one line to another, enter the switchapsln <bay> <line> <switchOption> <service switch> command, as shown in the following example:

M8xx0_LA.1.AXSM.a > switchapsln 1 1 6
Manual line switch from protection to working succeeded on line 1.1.1

Table 19 describes the configurable parameters for the cnfapsln command.

Table 19 The switchapsln Command Parameters 

Parameter
Description

bay

The working bay number to switch.

line

The working line number to switch.

switchOption

The method of performing the switchover.

1 = Clear previous user switchover requests. Return to working line only if the mode is revertive.

2 = Lockout of protection. Prevents specified APS pair from being switched over to the protection line. If the protection line is already active, the switchover is made back to the working line.

3 = Forced working to protection line switchover. If the working line is active, the switchover is made to the protection line unless the protection line is locked out or in the SF condition, or if a forced switchover is already in effect.

4 = Forced protection to working line switchover. If the protection line is active, the switch is made to the working line unless a request of equal or higher priority is in effect. This option has the same priority as option 3 (forced working to protection line switchover). Therefore, if a forced working to protection line switchover is in effect, it must be cleared before this option (forced protection to working line switchover) can succeed.

5 = Manual switchover from working to protection line unless a request of equal or higher priority is in effect.

6 = Manual switchover from protection to working line. This option is only available in the 1+1 APS architecture.

service switch

This is an optional parameter. When set to 1, this field causes all APS lines to switch to their protected lines.


Enter the dspapslns command to verify that the active line switched over from the protection line to the working line, as shown in the following example:

M8xx0_LA.1.AXSM.a > dspapslns
Working Prot.  Conf  Oper    Active  WLine PLine WTR   Revt Conf Oper LastUser
Index   Index  Arch  Arch    Line    State State (min)      Dir  Dir  SwitchReq

Troubleshooting APS Lines

This section describes the 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 AXSMB 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, the 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 3.0.10.



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_LA.1.AXSM.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 20 to help you determine which APS line is not functioning properly.


Note Table 20 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 21 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.

Installing and Upgrading to Release 3.0.10

For upgrades, the term graceful means the process does not interrupt switch traffic or change the switch configuration.

The MGX 8850 (PXM45) switch can be gracefully upgraded to Release 3.0.10 from Releases 2.0.15, 2.1.76, 2.1.80, and 3.0.00.

The MGX 8850 (PXM1E) switch can be gracefully upgraded to Release 3.0.10 from Release 3.0.00.


Note Starting with Release 3.0.10, CLI commands and shellconn commands can be used to burn the boot images.


Important Upgrade Notes

AXSM/B Cards Running APS

On upgrading to 3.0.10, the cnfxbarmgmt command has to be issued in the following cases to enable the loadsharing and auto shutdown when it is not enabled by default during the upgrade:

A nongraceful upgrade from 2.0.x to 3.0.10.

Upgrading from 2.1.76 or later when load sharing or auto shutdown is manually disabled.

AXSM Cards in Op B Mode and APS Lines

If the firmware is being upgraded using loadrev/runrev to Release 3.0.10 from Release 3.0.00, the APS lines must be deleted prior to the upgrade if all of the following conditions are met (refer to caveat CSCdy09317).

APS is operating in the Operating Mode B. This can be verified from the output of the dspcd command on the AXSM card.

APS lines have been added and none of the APS lines are configured with ITU-T protocol (that is, Annex-B protocol).

When upgrading from 2.1.80 to 3.0.10 and higher, check that the working and protection lines are free of any line failures prior to issuing the enableaxsmbaps command. Otherwise, the ports can go down. If this problem is encountered, take out the receive part of the line that doesn't have the alarm and re-insert it (refer to caveat CSCdz50925).

NNI Ports

Signaling must be configured on NNI ports prior to upgrading to Release 3.0.00 and higher. Otherwise, for an NNI port with no signaling and ILMI enabled, after upgrading to Release 3.0.00 and higher, the PNNI link will go down.

Manual Clocking

Manual clocking may latch twice when upgrading the PXM45 controller cards from Release 2.1.x to Release 3.0.00 and higher.

Upgrade Precautions from 2.0.x

For 1+1 APS and while the standby card is resetting during the upgrade process, the far end APS status is invalid and dspapsln will show the line is in mismatch or SF state (the NNI link will stay up). Once the standby card comes up, alarm will be clear. This means that APS protection is lost during the standby card reset.

The ILMI default value for Release 2.0.15 is 0 for UNI and NNI ports, but Release 3.0.10 uses the minVPI defined in the partition.

Installation and Upgrade Procedures

The procedures to upgrade to Release 3.0.10 appear in "Appendix A, Downloading and Installing Software Upgrades" in:

Symptom: After power cycle standby FRSM-VHS card resets twice

Conditions: Configure 1:1 redundancy between two VHS cards. Keep the configurations on the primary active card. Do power cycle.

Workaround: None.

CSCdy51843

Hardware: pxm1e

Symptom: CBC clocking affected on active and standby PXM1Es does not switch over to standby.

Conditions: Fault was inserted on standby card 8 and it is never detected by the active card. Upon forced switch over, the standby did not take over and all the SM's were reset and never came back up. If you insert a card with CBC clocking affected in the standby slot, it is not detected. In this situation we may have a faulty standby card just sitting in the node.

Workaround: Unknown.

CSCdy51865

Hardware: pxm1e

Symptom: FI: ATMizer SAR SDRAM data bus corruption & ATMizerII SAR chip disable on active - does not switch over to standby

Conditions: FI: ATMizer SAR SDRAM data bus corruption & ATMizerII SAR chip disable on active - does not switch over to standby. Both cards in ready state. When fault inserted on active it does not switch over to standby. All PNNI links go down, connections in fail state. Data traffic stops. Standby card resets after some time.

Workaround: Unknown.

CSCdy52131

Hardware: pxm1e

Symptom: FI: reset/failure on PXM1E is reported incorrectly in error log and reset type & error is not logged.

Conditions: When we insert the QE0 reset (test 4a) fault. The log does not show reset type and error reason. FI card is in slot 8. When we insert reset QE1 (test 4b) fault on PXM1E. The failure and reset reason is not reported in the log correctly. The FI card is in slot 8

Workaround: Unknown.

CSCdy56415

Hardware: pxm1e

Symptom: dspdiagerr doesn't update failure message

Conditions: When online diag running on active & standby PXMs and if the test fail on active PXM then the PXM switchover and dspdiagerr record the message and test will continue on the new standby PXM. But after the another test failed on the newly standby PXM, dspdiagerr removed the previous message and did not update with new failure message.

Workaround: Unknown.

CSCdy63336

Hardware: pxm1e

Symptom: pnRedMan task is leaking memory in IPC pool 0x10002 and 0x10006 in a PXM1E.

Conditions: One possible way to cause this IPC leak is that there are some plug-and-play ports on a given slot A (i.e., the port shows up on controller when slot A is active, but disappears when the slot is reset or pulled out), and the slot A is reset/pulled out for a short time.

Workaround: To avoid above condition, make those ports persistent, by dnpnort/cnfpnportsig, etc.

CSCdy64831

Hardware: pxm1e

Symptom: When a burnboot command is executed for a NBSM, the NBSM resets.

Conditions: On execution the CLI command "burnboot <slot> <fw>" on any NBSMs like FRSM-8T1, VISM-8T1 and so on, the NBSM burns the boot to the flash and resets. This causes the NBSM to come up with the newly burnt boot image

Workaround: This is as per the current design. On a burnboot, we expect the card to reset and come up with the new boot version. The boot upgrade should be done in the customer's maintenance window.

CSCdy69231

Hardware: pxm1e

Symptom: Standby PXM1E combo card CC dropped into idtmon while loading runtime image in backup boot.

Conditions: Power cycle.

Workaround: Unknown.

CSCdy70541

Hardware: pxm1e

Symptom: Primary clock status is lockable but still the active clock is internal clock...

Conditions: The primary clock was configured from trunk 7:2.2:22 and it was active. The secondary clock was configured from trunk 7:2.11:11 and was in bad state because of no clock signal. To clear this problem from secondary clock the "cnfclksrc secondary 7:2.9:29" command was executed. The trunk 7:2.9:29 was an active trunk with PNNI-link established both ways. After executing this command the active clock status became from "internal clock" even though the primary clock is still in locked state. Also, the secondary clock is still shown as 7:2.11:11 instead of 7:2.9:29. Moreover, the status of secondary clock has became "UNKNOWN"

Workaround: Port 2.11:11 is oper down. Bring it up active (either by loopback or physical cable) delclksrc secondary configure new clock source.

CSCdy71636

Hardware: pxm1e

Symptom: The customer sees traffic stop in one direction spontaneously.

Conditions: It happens spontaneously on an FRSM 8T1E1 card on a POP1 shelf. POP1 shelf is a feeder to an MGX 2 shelf.

Workaround: Using CWM reconfigure the CIR of the connection or delete and re add the PVC.

CSCdy72444

Hardware: pxm1e

Symptom: Statistical alarm does not clear after 24 hours

Conditions: Line 2.3 went into statistical alarm. the line 2.3 went into major alarm and never cleared out of it. cnfalm -ds3 2.3 -dsev (major) was set. After 24 hours alarm should have cleared.

Workaround: Unknown.

CSCdy73577

Hardware: pxm1e

Symptom: Oam_conn_upoamerr: failed reading ATLAS for connection status.

Conditions: After multiple switchcc.

Conditions: Do a switchcc from 7->8, then do a switchredcd from 30->28.

Workaround: Unknown.

CSCdy73683

Hardware: pxm1e

Symptom: New connection across MPG stay in failed state.

Conditions: Added few new connections across MPG. The connection stayed in failed state for 15+ minutes. The connections were in CTRLR-ABIT alarm but eventually came up OK. PXM1E node is acting as a PGL for the network. Last fail cause does not specify the error.

Workaround: Unknown.

CSCdy75753

Hardware: pxm1e

Symptom: After burnboot when the card came up it still had old version.

Condition: After executing burnboot on PXM1E the card reset and came up with old release. After doing it several times card did finally upgrade.

Workaround: Use old way, sysFlashBootBurn.

CSCdy77599

Hardware: pxm1e

Symptom: switchredcd 19 29 is not working. getting message of CLI internal error.

Condition: Customer executed switchredcd 19 29, got error message of CLI internal error and card did not switch. These are the steps leading up to issue: customer upgraded from 3.0.10.176-a to 3.0.10.187-a, waited about 1 hour, did a switchcc, then did a switchredcd 19 29.

Workaround: Unknown.

CSCdy80871

DDTs Issue
Description

CSCdx67417

Hardware: all

Symptom:

Conditions:

Workaround:

CSCdx82847

Hardware: pxm1e

Symptom: line status LED's on standby pxm1e always show green

Conditions: The line status LED on standby PXM-1E always show green even if the line is in LOS. This is inconsistence with other LEDs on PXM-1E. e.g. the ALARMs LEDs on the standby PXM remain OFF. We think that the line status LED either reflect same as of active PXM or they remained OFF as of alarm LED. (On PXM-1 they remain OFF on standby PXM)

Workaround: None.

CSCdy09657

Hardware: pxm1e

Symptom: dspdiagstatus does not display the state and role of SM's; It displays the info only for the PXM1E and SRM cards.

Conditions: PXM1E dspdiagstatus command does not display the state and role of SM's where as same command displays the state and role in MGX-45. In case of a PXM1E node, the role and state info for SMs should say N.A (or something similar to indicate that NBSMs status is not displayed by this command)

Workaround: None yet. Currently, "Idle/Unknown" is the role/state combination that is used to indicate that diags status does not apply to SMs. This will be changed soon.

CSCdy16930

Hardware: pxm1e

Symptom: addpart command is inconsistent when entering parameters.

Conditions: addparts commands takes hex values for some fields, for example if a value 3a is given for the field min VCI it would take that value and show as 58 which is decimal for 3a. Customer expects that a error message would pop up.

Workaround: Unknown.

CSCdy36692

Hardware: pxm1e

Symptom: Need warning messages for cnfport

Conditions: Customer wants warning messages to inform your about to change cnfport.

Workaround: Unknown.

CSCdy37182

Hardware: all

Symptom: dspcd shows lower back card empty for a full height back card.

Conditions: None

Workaround: None. Not service impacting. Display issue.

CSCdy43404

Hardware: pxm1e

Symptom: Card alarm is not properly counted when using dspcdalms

Conditions: dspcdalms shows that slot 32 has one major and one minor alarm but up on troubleshooting found that there is only one major LOS alarm on line 31.1 and no minor alarms. But in the alarm it's displaying a minor alarm too. dspcdalms shows the same for slot 15.

Workaround: Unknown.

CSCdy46972

Hardware: pxm1e

Symptom: Adding APS lines on the down lines does not show the correct error message.

Conditions: Adding APS lines on the down lines does not show the correct error message. It shows as ERR:APS not allowed:wrong card type On MGX-45 it shows the correct error as ERR: working line must be up

Workaround: Unknown.

CSCdy46993

Hardware: pxm1e

Symptom: APS command "clradjlnalmcnt" does not show the command option clearly

Conditions: emeanw36.8.PXM.a > clradjlnalmcnt 2.9 clradjlnalmcnt "<X.line>". It is not successful in the above format. But it also has another option as given below and it is successfully taking the command in that option. PXM.a > clradjlnalmcnt clradjlnalmcnt -<lineType> "<slot.line>". PXM.a > clradjlnalmcnt -sonet 2.9. Note: In MGX-45, it has only one option and it is successful. AXSM.a > clradjlnalmcnt clradjlnalmcnt "<bay.line>". AXSM.a > clradjlnalmcnt 1.3 AXSM.a > clradjlnalmcnt 1 clradjlnalmcnt "<bay.line>" AXSM.a >

Workaround: Unknown.

CSCdy49757

Hardware: ausm-8t1e1

Symptom: AUSM channel, port and SAR counters do not correctly count RM cells received from CPE

Conditions: The AUSM channel, port and SAR counters do not correctly handle RM cells when they are generated by the CPE (test-set). When RM cells are received by the AUSM card the baseline behavior is that they should be discarded by the UNI port. Indeed that is what is noted to happen for AUSM on PXM1E. The command dspconload shows that no traffic is received from the AUSM when a stream of RM cells at 480 cps is generated by the test-set:

Workaround: Unknown.

CSCdy59294

Hardware: ausm-8t1e1

Symptom: AUSM/PXM1e transmits invalid PTI=7 cells into network but cannot pass traffic out of far-end AUSM port.

Conditions: An abr1 PVC was provisioned between two AUSM-IMA ports: [Test Set A] <---> emeagr36.1.1.300 to emeanw36.27.1.1.300 <---> [Test Set B]. Test set A generated 480 CPS of ATM cells with the PTI field set to 7 (invalid). The payload consisted of 48 byte 6A pattern. The channel, port and SAR counters on gr36 indicate that traffic is being sent into the network. On the PXM1e card on gr36 the "dspconload" command indicates that all the PTI=7 traffic is sent out the trunk interface. In fact there seems to be RM cell overhead in both directions. The "dspconload" command on emeanw36 indicates that all PTI=7 traffic is being received on the trunk interface. However on the AUSM port on NW36 the channel, port and SAR counters all remain at zero. It is very strange that the AUSM card handles PTI=7 cells differently on the Ingress and Egress directions. At one time the PVC was able to transmit PTI=7 cells end to end but it has only been observed to happen once.

Workaround: Unknown.

CSCdy64834

Hardware: pxm1e

Symptom: Possible loss of configuration

Conditions: Non-native standby PXM disk is inserted and before the card could come up to standby state, the active PXM resets.

Workaround: None.

CSCdy64846

Hardware: pxm1e

Symptom: Non-native PXM comes up as active with no databases

Conditions: When native active PXM (with configuration/databases) has a hardware failure in a node with single PXM and a non-native PXM is inserted

Workaround: None.

CSCdy65252

Hardware: pxm1e

Symptom: Once clock is unlockable it needs to be reconfigured.

Conditions: On PXM1E when line clock is configured and for some reason if it goes unlockable it need to be deleted and reconfigured even if the problems with line gets clear. For example, if a line configured as clock is an OC3 line and this line is config. for APS. In this case when primary card is active with both APS in okay state and if there is LOS on the working line the clock will go in unlockable state. Upon removing LOS from this line doesn't clear unlockable situation from the clock

Workaround: Unknown.

CSCdy66033

Hardware: pxm1e

Symptom: Connections fails and doesn't route

Conditions: MGX8830, MGX8850

Workaround: Under investigation

CSCdy70165

Hardware: pxm1e

Symptom: Standby CC's active clock (primary clock) got re-qualified and it latched onto the secondary clock while active CC's clock remained primary and it never got re-qualified.

Conditions: remove the standby CC's tBC

Workaround: Unknown.

CSCdy71223

Hardware: pxm1e

Symptom: LOA yields inconsistent active clock state in 2 pxm1e nodes.

Conditions: Create an LOA on 2 pxm1e nodes.

Workaround: Unknown.

CSCdy64834

Hardware: pxm1e

Symptom: Possible loss of configuration.

Conditions: Non-native standby PXM disk is inserted and before the card could come up to standby state, the active PXM resets

Workaround: None.

CSCdy64846

Hardware: pxm1e

Symptom: Non-Native PXM comes up as active with no databases.

Conditions: When native active PXM (with configuration/databases) has a hardware failure in a node with single PXM and a non-native PXM is inserted.

Workaround: None.

CSCdy65252

Hardware: pxm1e

Symptom: Once clock is unlockable it needs to be reconfigured.

Condition: On PXM1E when line clock is configured and for some reason if it goes unlockable it need to be deleted and reconfigured even if the problems with line gets clear. For example, if a line configured as clock is an OC3 line and this line is configured for APS. In this case when primary card is active with both APS in ok state and if there is LOS on the working line the clock will go in unlockable state. Upon removing LOS from this line doesn't clear unlockable situation from the clock.

Workaround: Unknown.

CSCdy81403

Hardware: pxm1e

Symptom: When there is los on secondary clock the primary clock's status becomes bad.

Condition: The primary clock is configured from trunk 7:2.9:29 and secondary clock is configured from 7:2.4:24. The secondary clock was active and primary clock was going through qualification state. At this time we created LOS on secondary clock, which is trunk 7:2.9:29. This made no clock signal status on secondary clock and also on primary clock. The primary clock stayed in this state for few seconds even though there was no LOS on it's trunk. After few seconds later the primary clock again went through the requalification and became active.

Workaround: Unknown.

Hardware: pxm1e

Symptom: tOam task was leaking memory in IPC buffer ids 0x10002 and 0x10003.

Conditions: Unknown.

Workaround: Unknown.

CSCdy22633

Hardware: axsm1b_oc3

Symptom: Only on a specific node, and only on a specific slot pair, does the dspcons and dspcons -filt 4 command give syntax error usage information even though the command was correctly entered. Commands provide expected output on other slots in the node, and in the same slots in different nodes, the problem is not seen. Also there is also an error message logged for slot 11 every time the command "dspcons -filt 4" is issued, "cliCallXfunc: xFunc() Parameter validation failed non MIB-based command:".

Conditions: The dspcons command with the filter option had failed due to the presence of connections on a port that did not exist. This could have been caused by two possible scenario: a) the port had disappeared off the port database, b) the connections were "dangling" connections that did not get cleaned up as part of a delete operation. Most of the clues found in the logs point to the latter.

Workaround: The problem is not malignant and does not impact the normal functioning of the switch, a) It does not impact traffic, b) provisioning operation on the node should be possible, c) the port can be re-added if necessary and connections can be provisioned on the port. The only connections that cannot be re-added are those which are dangling in the database. d) The only impact of the dangling connections is that it reduces the number of connections that can be provisioned in the card. The problem can be rectified by deleting the dangling connections on the card.

CSCdy63336

Hardware: pxm1e

Symptom: pnRedMan task is leaking memory in IPC pool 0x10002 and 0x10006 in a PXM1E.

Conditions: One possible way to cause this IPC leak is that there are some plug-and-play ports on a given slot A (i.e., the port shows up on controller when slot A is active, but disappears when the slot is reset or pulled out), and the slot A is reset/pulled out for a short time.

Workaround: To avoid above condition, make those ports persistent, by dnpnort/cnfpnportsig, etc.

CSCdy64831

Hardware: pxm1e

Symptom: When a burnboot command is executed for a NBSM, the NBSM resets.

Conditions: On execution the CLI command "burnboot <slot> <fw>" on any NBSMs like FRSM-8T1, VISM-8T1 and so on, the NBSM burns the boot to the flash and resets. This causes the NBSM to come up with the newly burnt boot image

Workaround: This is as per the current design. On a burnboot, we expect the card to reset and come up with the new boot version. The boot upgrade should be done in the customer's maintenance window.

CSCdy65143

Hardware: pxm45b

CSCdy70426

Hardware: pxm45b

Symptom: 1. The bypasses are not ordered by AvCR. This means that bypasses with smaller bandwidth can be advertised ahead of ones with more bandwidth. However in most cases, the bypasses are advertised as full-meshed instead of spanning tree, so that the ordering of bypasses wouldn't matter, since all the bypasses are advertised. 2. The routing cost is not calculated correctly for via peer groups that are configured as complex nodes. This could affect finding an optimized route in MPG network.

Conditions: The complex node that is turned on a node with a lot of bypasses

Workaround: None.

CSCdy70541

Hardware: pxm1e

Symptom: Primary clock status is lockable but still the active clock is internal clock...

Conditions: The primary clock was configured from trunk 7:2.2:22 and it was active. The secondary clock was configured from trunk 7:2.11:11 and was in bad state because of no clock signal. To clear this problem from secondary clock the "cnfclksrc secondary 7:2.9:29" command was executed. The trunk 7:2.9:29 was an active trunk with PNNI-link established both ways. After executing this command the active clock status became from "internal clock" even though the primary clock is still in locked state. Also, the secondary clock is still shown as 7:2.11:11 instead of 7:2.9:29. Moreover, the status of secondary clock has became "UNKNOWN"

Workaround: Port 2.11:11 is oper down. Bring it up active (either by loopback or physical cable) delclksrc secondary configure new clock source.

CSCdu26141

Hardware: pxm45

Symptom: SHM-4_DB_REQ_FAIL messages are logged at severity 4 in the event log. The log entries will look similar to the following: 08-00323 05/15/2001-00:51:31 SHM_-4-DB_REQ_FAIL shmDiskHdl 0x803276b4 SHM ERR: Database request on slot 8 failed, db = rslot, in

Conditions: Consecutive resetcd were executed on the PXMs in this node. This log can be seen under 2 conditions: 1. Under the normal operation of the PXM if this is logged, it is a problem with the communication between 2 tasks that needs to be investigated. 2. During any form of shelf reset like resetsys, abortrev, setrev etc. If this log is seen at around the time a shelf reset is happening, it is not a problem if this log is seen. This will not have any impact at all on the state of the shelf or the state of the configuration on the shelf.

Workaround: None.

CSCdx82847

Hardware: pxm1e

Symptom: line status LED's on standby pxm1e always show green

Conditions: The line status LED on standby PXM-1E always show green even if the line is in LOS. This is inconsistence with other LEDs on PXM-1E. e.g. the ALARMs LEDs on the standby PXM remain OFF. We think that the line status LED either reflect same as of active PXM or they remained OFF as of alarm LED. (On PXM-1 they remain OFF on standby PXM)

Workaround: None.

CSCdy09657

Hardware: pxm1e

Symptom: dspdiagstatus does not display the state and role of SM's; It displays the info only for the PXM1E and SRM cards.

Conditions: PXM1E dspdiagstatus command does not display the state and role of SM's where as same command displays the state and role in MGX-45. In case of a PXM1E node, the role and state info for SMs should say N.A (or something similar to indicate that NBSMs status is not displayed by this command)

Workaround: None yet. Currently, "Idle/Unknown" is the role/state combination that is used to indicate that diags status does not apply to SMs. This will be changed soon.

Symptom: dspcd shows lower back card empty for a full height back card.

Conditions: None

Workaround: None. Not service impacting. Display issue.

CSCdy41895

Hardware: axsme

Symptom: 'dspportsct vcThr' should match with the one shows on 'dspportsct qeVcThr' But the VSI_Signal values shown from SCT does not match to the actual hardware value.

Conditions: dspportsct vcThr & dspportsct qeVcThr

Workaround: This is a display problem. The VSI_Signal VC Threshold values being display from the dspportsct or dspcdsct command is incorrect. Basically the AXSME software ignores the VC Threshold values being specified in SCT. Instead, the AXSME software would program a lower pre-defined threshold values for the VSI signal channels. So the values in the hardware are correct. Please ignore the VSI_signal values from the SCT. The lower pre-defined is needed because we want to limit our traffic flow on the VSI signaling channels prevent flooding the PXM45. If the PXM45 is flooded, then there will be some unpredictable and unreliable behaviors on PXM45. We are going to fix the display problem.

CSCdy42250

Hardware: frsm12

Symptom: A difference exits between the checksum on the switch software distributed AXSME_SCT.PORT.53.V1 and the same AXSME_SCT.PORT.53.V1 after it has been uploaded and re-downloaded to the same switch using the SCT download.

Conditions: SCT file has been upload and re-downloaded to the same switch using the SCT download from CWM.

Workaround: First load the distributed SCT on the switch with addsct command. Once CWM and the SCT manager has detected the SCT. Remove the distributed SCT from the switch using the delsct command. Now the SCT can be load to all nodes requiring this SCT with the SCT download via from CWM. Most importantly there is nothing different between the two SCT files with respect to card parameter. The difference with the SCT files is in the SCT IDs in this case the 53 number. In the SCT manager it is recorded as 53 on the distribution SCT file it's recorded internally as 1. The CWM SCT is correct. Both will work.

CSCdy42620

Hardware: frsm12

Symptom: Danglers remain after using the CLI command delcons. This is the caveat with these commands. While provisioning connections in bulk (copycons/delcons), if the PNNI layer get busy due to re-route/de-route activity, then it will reject the deletion.

Conditions: The command delcons was developed for Dev-test usage only. This command is not recommended to be used on a production node due to resource problems generated by the flood of traps on each con deletion.

Workaround: Use delcon for each individual PVC until a better method is developed see PXM release notes for description of CLI commands delcon and delcons usage.

CSCdy43404

Hardware: pxm1e

Symptom: Card alarm is not properly counted when using dspcdalms

Conditions: dspcdalms shows that slot 32 has one major and one minor alarm but up on troubleshooting found that there is only one major LOS alarm on line 31.1 and no minor alarms. But in the alarm it's displaying a minor alarm too. dspcdalms shows the same for slot 15.

Workaround: Unknown.

CSCdy49757

Hardware: ausm-8t1e1

Symptom: AUSM channel, port and SAR counters do not correctly count RM cells received from CPE

Conditions: The AUSM channel, port and SAR counters do not correctly handle RM cells when they are generated by the CPE (test-set). When RM cells are received by the AUSM card the baseline behavior is that they should be discarded by the UNI port. Indeed that is what is noted to happen for AUSM on PXM1E. The command dspconload shows that no traffic is received from the AUSM when a stream of RM cells at 480 cps is generated by the test-set:

Workaround: Unknown.

Symptom: No consistency in the warning message for invalid login attempts.

Conditions: When attempting to login to the shelf with incorrect User ID and password.

Workaround: None.

CSCdy59294

Hardware: ausm-8t1e1

Symptom: AUSM/PXM1e transmits invalid PTI=7 cells into network but cannot pass traffic out of far-end AUSM port.

Conditions: An abr1 PVC was provisioned between two AUSM-IMA ports: [Test Set A] <---> emeagr36.1.1.300 to emeanw36.27.1.1.300 <---> [Test Set B]. Test set A generated 480 CPS of ATM cells with the PTI field set to 7 (invalid). The payload consisted of 48 byte 6A pattern. The channel, port and SAR counters on gr36 indicate that traffic is being sent into the network. On the PXM1e card on gr36 the "dspconload" command indicates that all the PTI=7 traffic is sent out the trunk interface. In fact there seems to be RM cell overhead in both directions. The "dspconload" command on emeanw36 indicates that all PTI=7 traffic is being received on the trunk interface. However on the AUSM port on NW36 the channel, port and SAR counters all remain at zero. It is very strange that the AUSM card handles PTI=7 cells differently on the Ingress and Egress directions. At one time the PVC was able to transmit PTI=7 cells end to end but it has only been observed to happen once.

Workaround: Unknown.

CSCdy59858

Hardware: pxm45b

Symptom: Using inband management, not able to ping pxm1 feeders atm0 address when the PXM45's lnPci0 and atm0 subnet masks are different. The trigger is the deletion of the internal SVC between the AXSM and the PXM. Can be reproduced by doing a dnport/upport on the AXSM port which connects to the management router in the setup shown below: CWM station---ethernet---Router with ATM oc3 interface-----AXSM------PXM45-----AXSM-----PXM1

Conditions: Observed on MGX8850 PXM45 running 2.1.75

Workaround: The problem is in the VxWorks routing table on the PXM45. The IP data to pxm1 first has to traverse PXM45 where it is switched to the AXSM connecting to the pxm1. 1. Switchcc on the PXM45 clears this condition. 2. Making PXM45 re-learn the route to pxm1 clears this issue. This can be done by initiating a telnet from PXM45 CLI to pxm1

CSCdy59923

Hardware: pxm45b

Symptom: Mounting nfs is not necessary, takes time and resources and can cause conflicts when nfs host is the same as another device.

Conditions: This condition is observed in 2.1 Release when the PXM-HD model is IC25N020ATCS04-0 or IBM-DJSA-205. The HDD model name can be viewed with the command ataShow. cmdBold>More Information: A low level format is not required in the field as these drives come preformatted from manufacturing.

Technical Assistance Center

The Cisco Technical Assistance Center (TAC) is available to all customers who need technical assistance with a Cisco product, technology, or solution. Two levels of support are available: the Cisco TAC Web Site and the Cisco TAC Escalation Center.

Cisco TAC inquiries are categorized according to the urgency of the issue:

Priority level 4 (P4)—You need information or assistance concerning Cisco product capabilities, product installation, or basic product configuration.

Priority level 3 (P3)—Your network performance is degraded. Network functionality is noticeably impaired, but most business operations continue.

Priority level 2 (P2)—Your production network is severely degraded, affecting significant aspects of business operations. No workaround is available.

Priority level 1 (P1)—Your production network is down, and a critical impact to business operations will occur if service is not restored quickly. No workaround is available.

The Cisco TAC resource that you choose is based on the priority of the problem and the conditions of service contracts, when applicable.

Cisco TAC Web Site

You can use the Cisco TAC Web Site to resolve P3 and P4 issues yourself, saving both cost and time. The site provides around-the-clock access to online tools, knowledge bases, and software. To access the Cisco TAC Web Site, go to this URL:

http://www.cisco.com/tac

All customers, partners, and resellers who have a valid Cisco service contract have complete access to the technical support resources on the Cisco TAC Web Site. The Cisco TAC Web Site requires a Cisco.com login ID and password. If you have a valid service contract but do not have a login ID or password, go to this URL to register:

If you are a Cisco.com registered user, and you cannot resolve your technical issues by using the Cisco TAC Web Site, you can open a case online by using the TAC Case Open tool at this URL:

http://www.cisco.com/tac/caseopen

If you have Internet access, we recommend that you open P3 and P4 cases through the Cisco TAC Web Site.

Cisco TAC Escalation Center

The Cisco TAC Escalation Center addresses priority level 1 or priority level 2 issues. These classifications are assigned when severe network degradation significantly impacts business operations. When you contact the TAC Escalation Center with a P1 or P2 problem, a Cisco TAC engineer automatically opens a case.

To obtain a directory of toll-free Cisco TAC telephone numbers for your country, go to this URL:
