Open Caveats in Release 12.2(29)SV3

CSCsh84591

Symptom: When using the line subcommand login, the vty may get in to a state where the user will not be able to log in to the IOS router. The user will be presented with password followed immediately by "Bad passwords", without anything being entered. The line in this state can be seen with the exec command show line <line number>. In the "Status" line, if 'Ctrl-c Enabled' appears, then you may see this problem on that line.

Workaround: The condition on the line can be cleared by reloading the router. Without reloading, it is possible to clear this condition by following these sequence of steps. First remove the login from the line. Telnet into the router on the line which is in this state. From enable mode, run the command setup. When prompted with "Continue with configuration dialog" type no. Add the login back to the vty line. Access to the gateway would need to be either through the console or another vty not in this state to first remove the line login command. If console access is not possible and the vty in this state is the first vty on the router, try opening up multiple (two or more) simultaneous telnet sessions to the router. The first one will fail but the second session should access a vty not in this faulty state.

CSCsb85494

Symptom: CRC errors are observed on the FC client devices that are connected to the 4-port 1-Gbps/2-Gbps FC aggregation card when jumbo GE traffic is mixed on the same trunk.

Conditions: This symptom is seen when the GE traffic (with frame size greater than 1500 bytes) and the FC traffic from the 4-port 1-Gbps/2-Gbps FC aggregation card pass through the same 10-Gbps trunk card.

Workaround: None.

CSCed74239

Symptom: Though the working trunk has a failure, the protection path may not become active for a Y-cable APS link when the client device is administratively shutdown and restarted.

Conditions: The symptom may be observed on some FC devices connected to the 2.5-Gbps transparent transponder cards.

Workaround: Configure a loopback interface on the client side to restore the traffic.

CSCsc14597

Symptom: When end-to-end speed negotiation is enabled on all the twogigabitphy interfaces of the 4-port 1-Gbps/2-Gbps FC aggregation card and the FC client devices, the interface may lock to 1 Gbps even though the maximum negotiable speed is 2 Gbps.

Workaround: Perform any of the following operations:

Perform shut/no shut on both the twogigabitphy interfaces of the 4-port 1-Gbps/2-Gbps FC aggregation card.

Perform shut/no shut on the client interface.

Perform encapsulation/no encapsulation on both the twogigabitphy interfaces of the 4-port 1-Gbps/2-Gbps FC aggregation card.

CSCdz59146

Symptom: The ethernetdcc interface loses connectivity when splitter protection is configured and the waveethernetphy interface is shut down while the protection wavepatch interface is active and the working wavepatch interface is down.

Workaround: Do not shut down the waveethernetphy interface when the working wavepatch interface is down.

CSCec25368

Symptom: The values returned for entPhysicalVendorType and entPhysicalName are wrong when a low-band single-mode SFP is present in an ESCON aggregation card. The values returned show a low-band multimode SFP instead.

Workaround: None.

CSCee56524

Symptom: Tracebacks related to CPU switch module hog issues occur after installing an 8-port multi-service muxponder after booting up the box.

Workaround: None.

CSCef74226

Symptom: When upgrading from Cisco IOS Release 12.1(10)EV4 or Cisco IOS Release 12.1(12c)EV to a later image using standard CPU switch module switchover procedure, the high water mark threshold for the ESCON aggregation card is not programmed to the new value. This might cause higher than expected delays on ESCON streams.

Workaround: Use the escon write <slot_no> 0x1C4 0x40 command to set the high water mark to the correct value for all ports on the ESCON aggregation card. Use the show controller port x/y/z command to display the new value.

CSCef12108

Symptom: The Cisco ONS15530 might not allow you to connect to the standby CPU switch module due to an authentication failure. This occurs when AAA or a local database is used for user authentication as this information (AAA or local database) is not replicated from the active to the standby CPU switch module.

Workaround: None.

CSCef87165

Symptom: An end-to-end link will remain down even if the initial condition that caused the fault is rectified if speed negotiation is enabled on the Fibre Channel switches, FLC is enabled on the corresponding multirate interfaces, and if the link between any one of the multirate interfaces and the FC switch goes down

Workaround: Disable FLC on the multirate interfaces.

CSCeg06084

Symptom: When autonegotiation is enabled on the CuFE multirate port and the peer device is hardcoded to 100 Mbps full duplex, the link might not come up.

Workaround: Issue the no negotiation auto command to disable autonegotiation on the CuFE port on the 8-port multi-service muxponder.

CSCeg23905

Symptom: A terminal loopback on a multirate interface might not work if the interface is in Loss of Light condition.

Workaround: Clear the Loss of Light condition and then configure terminal loopback.

CSCeg32098

Symptom: The AMI linecoding and the line build out options to specify the cable length are not available for T1 and E1 encapsulations of multirate interfaces.

Workaround: None.

CSCin81028

Symptom: Terminal and facility loopback do not work on the multirate interfaces after a CPU switch module switchover.

Workaround: Reconfigure the client encapsulation.

CSCin82637

Symptom: Version compatibility check is not performed on the mux/demux modules and PSM. No warning is issued if there is a version mismatch in hardware and software.

Workaround: None.

CSCin86897

Symptom: A temporary traffic interruption in 2.5G transparent transponders during ONS 15540 and 15530 CPU switchover. This depends on the software versions of the Active CPU before and after the switchover.

Conditions: This can occur when switching from a CPU that is running on IOS software without the fix for CSCec64326, to a CPU running on IOS software with the fix for CSCec64326. The fix for CSCec64326 involves changes to hardware settings, causing the temporary datahit.

Workaround: None. The problem will be fixed in a future release of IOS software.

CSCsa75221

Symptom: On an ONS15530 system, the cross connections belonging to a 4-Port FC card are lost during software upgrade. This is found when upgrading from any IOS image released before 12.2(25)SV, to any IOS image released in or after 12.2(25)SV.

Workaround: None

CSCsa99359

Symptom: For 15530 multirate cards, the 'encap mismatch' alarm asserts if the encapsulation configured on a multirate interface doesn't match with the encapsulation configured on the peer multirate interface. This alarm is not reported on the 'sh facility-alarm status ' output.

Workaround: None

CSCsb01894

Symptom: In ONS 15530, the standby CPU gets reloaded while downgrading from 12.2(26)SV to 12.2(24)SV, if the counter syncing feature in the 8p-GEFC card is enabled.

Workaround: Disable counter syncing on the primary CPU that runs on 12.2(26)SV and then reload 12.2(24)SV on the standby CPU.

Resolved Caveats in Release 12.2(29)SV3

CSCse51920

Symptom: It is possible to add "SNMP-server host", but cannot remove it from the config. Workaround: Reload the router with a new startup config.

CSCse63804

Symptom: The following false APS alarm has been reported on the WaveSonetphy interface of an 8-port multi service card, though APS is not enabled. <%MRC-3-AFOV_PRE_ALARM: Auto failover occurred: Pre Alarm Detected for waveSonetPhy x/y>

Workaround: None. This event doesn't affect traffic.

CSCsc55815

Symptom: In Y-cable APS, the active interface may come up as standby interface after reload.This is observed when standby interface is plugged out before reload of the CPU.The cards affected are 8-port GE/FC card and 4-port 1-Gig/2-Gig FC card.

Workaround: None.

CSCse50139

Symptom: Client and Trunk Laser shut down after a cpu switchover, if any OIR was performed on the card earlier. This problem is seen on a 2.5Gig transparent transponder. The OIR related operations include i) FPGA upgrade, ii) physical OIR of LCMB or TSP; iii) And any OIR simulation debug commands. This problem is observed on IOS versions 12.2(25)SV or later; and on all FPGA versions.

Workaround: After switchover shut/no shut the interfaces bring back the laser in up state.

If you happen to perform an OIR operation on a 2.5Gig transparent transponder, do the following sequence of operations in a maintenance window.

i) Perform a cpu switchover

ii) Shut/no shut the interfaces to bring the lasers back up.

Now, the future cpu switchovers, wouldn't cause the above problem.

Resolved Caveats in Release 12.2(29)SV1

CSCsb77838

Symptom: Though the working trunk has a failure, the protection path may not become active for a Y-cable APS link when the client device is administratively shutdown and restarted.

Condition: The symptom may be observed on some FC devices connected to the following cards:

4-port 1-Gbps/2-Gbps FC aggregation cards in Cisco ONS 15530 running Cisco IOS Release 12.2(26)SV or later.

8-port Fibre Channel/Gigabit Ethernet aggregation cards in Cisco ONS 15530 running Cisco IOS Release 12.2(26)SV or later.

Workaround: Configure a loopback interface on the client side to restore the traffic.

CSCsd61174

Symptom: The active CPU may reload when a power failure is caused to a Cisco ONS 15530 linecard.

Condition: This symptom is observed rarely.

Workaround: None.

CSCsd40488

Symptom: The performance history counters for the wave interface of the 2.5-Gbps transparent transponder linecards are not displayed.

Condition: None.

Workaround: None.

CSCsd43471

Symptom: The CVRD thresholds are incorrectly displayed in the show interface output for FC 1 Gbps and FC 2 Gbps encapsulations. These thresholds are used in the 2.5-Gbps transparent transponder linecards, 4-port 1-Gbps/2-Gbps FC aggregation cards, and 8-port Fibre Channel/Gigabit Ethernet aggregation cards.

Condition: None.

Workaround: None.

CSCsd12813

Symptom: The help string for the sdh encapsulation STM-16 rate configuration is incorrect for the 2.5-Gbps transparent transponder.

Condition: None.

Workaround: None.

CSCin86829

Symptom: The PSM hardware supports optical power monitoring of the wdmsplit interfaces only for a specific range (0 to -24 dBm). The software does not extrapolate for the other power levels (up to 17 dBm) around the hardware supported range.

Condition: None.

Workaround: None.

CSCsd21153

Symptom: Switch fabric protection may not get enabled for the 4-port 1-Gbps/2-Gbps FC aggregation card.

Condition: This problem occurs when keepalive timeout (KATO) is asserted on the twogigabitphy interfaces.

Workaround: None.

CSCsa87583

Symptom: The switch fabric protection may not be enabled when the standby CPU is booted, and the following error message is displayed:

00:02:03: %SRC-3-AFOVEN_ERROR: Attempt to enable switch fabric protection autofailover on interface WaveEthernetPhy2/0.1 when port status is 3

Condition: This symptom is observed rarely.

Workaround: Reload the standby CPU.

Resolved Caveats in Release 12.2(29)SV

CSCsb26802

Symptom: When a client or trunk laser fails, the show facility-alarm status command displays the Line laser failure detected error message. However, this error message does not indicate which laser has failed.

Condition: This symptom is observed on Cisco ONS 15530 cards when transparent transponders are present.

Workaround: None.

CSCeg27643

Symptom: After a CPU switch module switchover, the trunk transmit laser comes up even if it was shut down before the switchover. The laser shutdown configuration is present in the running configuration, but the laser is still enabled.

Workaround: Issue the laser shutdown command again after the switchover.

CSCin79007

Symptom: Even though forward laser control is not configured, the client laser is disabled if an OIR is performed when a keepalive timeout exists on the twogigabitphy interface. The laser is enabled when the keepalive timeout condition is cleared, but it is disabled whenever a keepalive timeout condition is asserted. The client laser shuts down because the keepalive timeout should only be seen under the following conditions:

The portgroup is not cross-connected to a trunk port.

Forward laser control (FLC) is configured on the client interface.

Condition: This behavior is seen only on the x/0/0 twogigabitphy interface of the 4-port 1-Gbps/2-Gbps FC aggregation card if it is removed and reinserted when the interface is in keepalive timeout condition.

Workaround: Change the encapsulation to a different value and then change back to the required encapsulation value.

CSCee70185

Symptom: An informational warning is issued instead of a critical alarm when the line cards are shut down in response to a multiple fan failure event after issuing the environment-monitor shutdown fan command.

Workaround: None.

CSCsa57880

Symptom: The client laser of the 8-port Fibre Channel/Gigabit Ethernet aggregation card interface that is connected to the ITU trunk card goes down momentarily, when splitter protection switching occurs on the ITU trunk card.

Conditions: This symptom occurs when the Forward Laser Control is enabled on the gigabitphy interface of the 8-port Fibre Channel/Gigabit Ethernet aggregation card.

Workaround: None.

CSCsb34520

Symptom: Traffic passing through the 8-port FC/GE aggregation card takes a severe hit during a CPU switchover.

Conditions: This symptom occurs during a CPU switchover.

Workaround: None.

CSCsb25277

A new idle-pattern CVRD configuration option has been introduced for twogigabitphy interfaces of the 4-port 1-Gbps/2-Gbps FC aggregation card. If this option is enabled, the twogigabitphy interface will transmit code violations instead of link control frames on trunk APS switchover; thereby reducing the traffic hit.

CSCsb64798

A new idle-pattern CVRD configuration option has been introduced for gigabitphy interfaces of the 8-port FC/GE aggregation card. If this option is enabled, the twogigabitphy interface will transmit code violations instead of link control frames on trunk APS switchover; thereby reducing the traffic hit.

CSCsc92821

Symptom: The crypto key on the secondary CPU gets deleted a few hours after it syncs up with the primary CPU. If a CPU switchover occurs after the crypto key is deleted, the SSH server gets disabled.

Conditions: None.

Workaround: None.

CSCsd14510

Symptom: The node may crash if you OIR (Online Insertion and Removal) the SFP, or perform a no shut on the gigabitphy interface.

Conditions: This symptom is observed if you:

OIR the SFP when FICON encapsulation and Tx CRC thresholds are configured on the gigabitphy interface.

perform no shut on the gigabitphy interface when FICON encapsulation and Tx CRC thresholds are configured on all the gigabitphy interfaces while they are in the shut mode.

Workaround: Remove the Tx CRC threshold configuration on the gigabitphy interface.

CSCsa71267

Symptom: The Cisco ONS 15530 system does not shutdown if the fan tray is removed or is faulty.

Conditions: None.

Workaround: None.

CSCsb37681

Symptom: The Cisco ONS 15530 ITU3 2.5-Gbps trunk card may falsely report the following laser degradation alarms:

%LC_2P5G-3-LASER_DEGRADATION_ALARM: Optic Laser Degradation Alarm submit for Slot 
%LC_2P5G-3-MIB_LASER_DEG_ALM: Laser Degradation Alarm ASSERT MAJOR 2.5

These alarms are logged for a short period (less than 30 seconds). When these alarms are present, neither the traffic nor the power level of the optical signal received at the peer node takes a hit.

Conditions: None.

Workaround: Ignore these false alarms.

CSCsc48011

Symptom: The splitter APS for the ITU2 trunk card does not switchover to the protection card when the CVRD error thresholds are exceeded.

Conditions: None.

Workaround: None.

CSCsc51135

Symptom: The following false error message is displayed if you configure the twogigabitphy interface of the 4-port 1-Gbps/2-Gbps FC aggregation card to operate at 2 Gbps:

Encap rate mismatched: [TwoGigabitPhy8/0/0, encap rate 2G].
SFP transciever support maximum rate is 1G. Performance at other rates is not 
guaranteed.

Conditions: This symptom is observed with high-band SM variable rate SFP optics.

Workaround: Ignore this false alarm.

CSCsc80540

Symptom: The show facilility-alarm status command displays incorrect LSC information.

Conditions: This condition occurs rarely when the optical switch of the ITU2 card fails.

Workaround: None.

CSCsc87612

Symptom: A raised High warning threshold exceeded facility alarm is not cleared even after the alarm condition is removed.

Conditions: This symptom is observed only when the receive signal level is greater than the high warning threshold value.

Workaround: To clear the alarm, you must:

Reload the active CPU.

Force an APS switchover.

CSCsd12809

Symptom: The trunk side ITU laser of the 8-port multirate card may report false laser degradation alarms. These alarms are logged for a short period (less than 30 seconds). When these alarms are present, neither the traffic nor the power level of the optical signal received at the peer node takes a hit.

Conditions: None.

Workaround: Ignore these false alarms.

CSCsb35798

Symptom: The Cisco ONS 15530 node may reload on performing shut/no shut on the wavee or wavepatch interface.

Conditions: This symptom is observed if the optical monitoring trap is enabled on the node.

Workaround: None.

Resolved Caveats in Release 12.2(26)SV1

CSCei61732

Cisco IOS may permit arbitrary code execution after exploitation of a heap-based buffer overflow vulnerability. Cisco has included additional integrity checks in its software, as further described below, that are intended to reduce the likelihood of arbitrary code execution.

Cisco has made free software available that includes the additional integrity checks for affected customers.

This advisory is posted at http://www.cisco.com/warp/public/707/cisco-sa-20051102-timers.shtml.

CSCuk58617

Symptom: The physical Performance Monitoring (PM) statistics may not be collected correctly.

Condition: This symptom is observed on a Cisco ONS15500 series card that is configured for SNMP when optical monitoring traps are enabled.

Workaround: None.

CSCei25594

Symptom: Memory leak may occur when CiscoView is used to monitor a router.

Condition: This condition may be seen on routers running 12.2(26)SV.

Workaround: None.

Resolved Caveats in Release 12.2(26)SV

CSCec73572

Symptom: Duplicate frames may be delivered to clients on the ONS15530, in the case of manual aps switchover (by operator command) with line card aps, from one trunk linecard to another.

Conditions: This could occur when the switchover is made from a trunk connected through shorter path to a trunk connected through longer path.

Workaround: None.

CSCef97070

Symptom: The APS switch time is greater than 50 ms.

Condition: Several APS switching between w and p in a row.

Workaround: None.

CSCeg02811

Symptom: The power-on diagnostics loopback tests of a Cisco ONS 15530 8-port FC/GE aggregation card (15530-FCGE-8P) may report failure.

Conditions: This symptom is observed very rarely when the Cisco ONS 15530 is booted immediately after a power-cycle.

Workaround: None. However, it does not affect any functionality.

CSCeg11241

Symptom: The variable rate high-band single mode SFP (15500-XVRA-12B1) is reported as "unknown" in the system status outputs such as show interface and show controller. The Cisco IOS software allows the interface configuration to proceed normally and traffic is not affected. Traffic flows normally once the port configuration is completed.

Conditions: This symptom is observed in 15500-XVRA-12B1 (10-1844-xx) SFP transceiver, on 15530-FCGE-8P and 15530-FC-4P linecards. It is also observed with Cisco IOS versions up to and including 12.2(24)SV and 12.2(25)S1.

Workaround: None.

CSCeg38355

Symptom: The standby CPU switch module might reload when you upgrade from Release 12.2(24)SV to Release 12.2(25)SV if you are using an 8-port GE/FC aggregation card with the counter synchronization feature enabled.

Workaround: Disable counter synchronization on the primary CPU switch module running Release 12.2(24)SV and then download Release 12.2(25)SV onto the standby CPU switch module.

CSCeg84037

Symptom: When a CPU switchover is performed (or triggered) on an ONS 15540 or ONS 15530 system, the memory utilization on the new primary increases by 10MB. In such a case, the memory utilization may go up to 85%. This problem is seen only with 12.2 based images.

Workaround: None

CSCin81342

Symptom: During a CPU switch module switchover, transparent transponders might experience temporary traffic interruption until the switchover is completed. The behavior is intermittent and not all transponders in a given chassis may be affected. This interruption might happen for the following types of protocol encapsulations:

ETR/CLO

100 Mbps Fast Ethernet / FDDI

ESCON/SBCON

1-Gbps FC/FICON

1-Gbps ISC ((ISC-1, ISC-3 peer mode, 1 Gbps)

2-Gbps FC/FICON

2-Gbps ISC (ISC-3 peer mode, 2 Gbps).

CSCin86185

Symptom: The received and transmit frame counts are not displayed for Gigabit Ethernet encapsulation on ONS 15530 8-port GigE/FC card.

Workaround: None.

CSCsa45294

Symptom: Traffic is disrupted for one to two seconds on ONS 155xx transponders configured with Forward Laser Control, when a protection switchover occurs on a trunk Protection Switch Module (PSM). This exceeds the specification of 50ms maximum failover time for the optical transport layer.

Workaround: Disable FLC on trunk-to-client direction of transponder, if feasible for the service. This workaround does not apply for ISC, ETR or CLO services.

Resolution: This will be fixed in the future release of IOS software on ONS15530 and ONS15540, with a caveat that the following configuration will not be supported on the platform:

Transponder motherboard or linecard with on-board optical splitter module (even if the optical splitter is disabled by configuration)

Trunk protection with Protection Switch Module

Forward Laser Control enabled on transponder

CSCsa46389

Symptom: On an ONS 15540/15530 system with Protection Switch Module, if a CPU switch occurs with the APS state such that protect interface is active and working interface is standby, then after the new CPU comes up there will be an extra APS switch to working. This is seen with all ONS15540 and ONS15530 software based on 12.1 and 12.2.

Workaround: None

CSCsa89956

Symptom: On an ONS 15530 system, the system may stop responding and reload, when a threshold group is configured on the waveethernetphy interface of an itu trunk card.

Conditions: This occurs only when the traffic is flowing with crc errors.

Workaround: None

Resolved Caveats in Release 12.2(25)SV

CSCin76822

Symptom: If a failed subcard is replaced by a new one, the show diag online output continues to indicate that there was a 'previous failure' for this subcard. This should have been cleared when the new card was inserted. This is specific to subcards, for motherboards the older failures are cleared when a new card is inserted.

Workaround: None.

Resolved Caveats in Release 12.2(24)SV

CSCdz82276

Symptom: A warning is issued if the card has an unknown functional image. Version compatibility checks need to be performed during system initialization. The hardware version compatibility should identify any mismatch between functional image versions and hardware versions. The software version compatibility should identify any mismatch between functional image and software image.

CSCea52092

Symptom: After booting the system, optical power coming out of the OSC module seems to be null even though the laser is enabled.

Workaround: Perform an online removal and insertion of the OSC module or carrier motherboard.

CSCec45305

Symptom: If the transparent interface on a multimode transponder line card is configured for Sysplex ETR traffic (encap sysplex etr command), the show interfaces transparent command output shows that forward laser control is set to off. Forward laser control is automatically enabled for Sysplex ETR.

Workaround: Add client input traffic and the trunk side laser will function.

CSCec78648

Symptom: The show redundancy command is not valid on specific versions of the Cisco ONS 15530 software but the choice still exists.

Workaround: Use the show redundancy summary command.

CSCed28094

Symptom: End-to-end GE autonegotiation is not supported by the 8-port FC/GE aggregation card.

Link defects such as a broken fiber from the 8-port FC/GE aggregation card to the client device at one end, which are not directly detected by the Cisco ONS 15530 and cause the client at one end to initiate autonegotiation, are not propagated to the client at the other end.

Any upper-layer processes that depend on bidirectional defect detection and propagation at the transport level might fail for certain classes of link defects.

Workaround: None.

Resolution: Upgrade the 8-port FC/GE aggregation card functional image to Release 2.30 or later.

CSCee22677

Symptom: When a Cisco ONS 15530 is connected to a Catalyst 450x through the gigabitphy interface of the 8-port FC/GE aggregation card, it is possible that the link will remain down after the link goes down on any reason. Conditions for this to happen are as follows:

Auto negotiation is disabled on both the GE interfaces, the Catalyst 4000 interface and the gigabitphy interface of the 8-port FC/GE aggregation card on the Cisco ONS 15530.

FLC is enabled on the gigabitphy interface.

Workaround: Enable autonegotiation on the GE interface level of the Catalyst 4500 at no speed nonegotiate and at negotiation auto for the Cisco ONS 15530.

CSCee50294

Symptom: Cisco IOS® devices running branches of Cisco IOS version 12.2S that have Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) server or relay agent enabled, even if not configured, are vulnerable to a denial of service where the input queue becomes blocked when receiving specifically crafted DHCP packets. Cisco is providing free fixed software to address this issue. There are also workarounds to mitigate this vulnerability. This issue was introduced by the fix included in CSCdx46180 and is being tracked by Cisco Bug ID CSCee50294.

This advisory is available at

http://www.cisco.com/warp/public/707/cisco-sa-20041110-dhcp.shtml.

Workaround: None.

CSCee75578

Symptom: The GE optical link fails to come up between two Catalyst 65xx 8-port GBIC modules through the Cisco ONS155xx transparent transponders when Forward Laser Control (FLC) is enabled on the system. The link fails to come up irrespective of the type of protection scheme.

Workaround: Use a 16-port GBIC module on the Catalyst 65xx or deactivate FLC on the ONS155xx.

CSCef28950

Symptom: The frame and bit 5-minute input and output rates are missing in the show interface command output of twogigabitphy interfaces on the 4-port 1-Gbps/2-Gbps FC aggregation cards configured for encapsulation for Sysplex ISC.

Workaround: None.

CSCef28967

Symptom: Tx CRC counts are displayed in the show interface command output of twogigabitphy interfaces on the 4-port 1-Gbps/2-Gbps FC aggregation cards configured for encapsulation for Sysplex ISC, even though these counts are not monitored.

Workaround: Ignore the Tx CRC count in the show interface command output for ISC encapsulation.

CSCin69960

Symptom: A receive failure might display a message that the laser is shut due to forward laser control.

Workaround: None.

Resolved Caveats in Release 12.2(23)SV

CSCed38657

Symptom: DWDM links set at a 196.608-Mbps rate, or an uncommon rate close to this, may not work properly on the 2.5-Gbps transponder line card. Link initialization failures and bit errors may occur.

Workaround: None.

CSCee24673

Symptom: High capacity counters are not implemented but are needed.

Workaround: None.

CSCee34107

Symptoms: APS behavior for the aps clear command is inconsistent with the standard behavior when the following conditions occur:

Traffic runs from the working link (link A) and you perform a manual switch to the protected link (link B), causing traffic to switch to link B.

You enter the aps clear command for the aps-group; link A becomes active, regardless of whether the APS group is configured revertively or nonrevertively.

Workaround: None.

CSCee59383

Symptom: The entitySensorMIB is not implemented.

Workaround: None.

CSCeb70408

Symptom: The IDPROM values from the high band single-mode SFPs are not readable. The SFPs cannot be configured and cannot be used.

Workaround: None.

CSCin73872

Symptom: The command for configuring optical thresholds on a voain interface is broken in Cisco IOS Release 12.2(22)SV for the Cisco ONS 15530. The command should be in the form:

optical threshold power receive after-attenuation [low|high] [alarm|warning] <val>

But in Cisco IOS release 12.2(22)SV only the following command can be specified in the interface configuration mode:

optical threshold power receive [low|high] [alarm|warning] <val>

The command is stored in an earlier format in the running configuration for the interface; hence upon reloading the chassis these threshold configurations are lost.

Workaround: Configure the optical threshold using this format:

optical threshold power receive [low|high] [alarm|warning] <val>

If the chassis has to be reloaded, then reconfigure the threshold command again when the box is rebooted.

CSCin78329

Symptom: Power-on diagnostics may fail the credit-buffer-memory test for the 8-port FC/GE aggregation card on the first boot after power cycling the box. Subsequent reboots without power cycling pass the test. These test failures are spurious and can be ignored.

Workaround: Upgrade your Cisco ONS 15530 software to Cisco IOS Release 12.2(23)SV or later.

Resolved Caveats in Release 12.2(22)SV

CSCec14447

Symptom: The 8-port GE/FC aggregation card laser is not in the proper state when a Tx-CRC threshold has been exceeded and FLC is configured.

Workaround: Issue the shutdown/no shutdown command sequence on the affected interface.

CSCec42573

Symptom: In a y-cable APS configuration, interfaces on the 8-port GE/FC aggregation card configured for FICON encapsulation change to GE encapsulation when the saved configuration file is copied to the running configuration.

Workaround: Change the encapsulation back to FICON.

CSCed33451

Symptom: After configuring a patch between a wavepatch interface and a wdmrelay interface, issuing a show connect intermediate command results in spurious memory access.

Workaround: Do not issue the show connect intermediate command when a patch between a wavepatch interface and a wdmrelay interface is configured.

CSCed33852

Symptom: The system might reload unexpectedly when a faulty optical add/drop multiplexer (OADM) module is present in the chassis.

Workaround: Replace the faulty OADM module.

CSCin64935

Symptom: A system might reload unexpectedly when you perform an online removal and reinsertion of a wide-band variable optical attenuator (WB-VOA) module.

Workaround: Do not remove and reinsert a WB-VOA module.

CSCin65618

Symptom: The system might reload unexpectedly when you configure the alarm threshold on a waveethernetphy interface of a 2.5-Gbps ITU trunk card.

This symptom occurs after the following steps:

1. Configure an alarm threshold list with code violation running disparity (CVRD) signal degrade and failure thresholds and apply it to the waveethernetphy interface.

2. Remove the 2.5-Gbps ITU trunk card, remove the threshold configurations from the threshold list, and reinsert the 2.5-Gbps ITU trunk card.

3. Remove the 2.5-Gbps ITU trunk card again, configure a CVRD degrade threshold, remove the threshold list, and reinsert the 2.5-Gbps ITU trunk card.

After you have performed these steps, the shelf reloads.

Workaround: None.

CSCin66424

Symptom: An APS switchover from a working interface to a protect interface might not occur for the following modules:

10-Gbps uplink card

10-Gbps ITU trunk card

2.5-Gbps ITU trunk card

This symptom occurs with the following configurations:

The card is configured for switch fabric based line card protection.

The interfaces of the card have threshold groups that are configured for converged data link header error checksum (CDL HEC) errors or cyclic redundancy check (CRC) errors, or both.

The CDL HEC error thresholds or CRC error thresholds, or both, are exceeded.

Workaround: Do not configure CDL HEC error thresholds, CRC error thresholds, or both. Instead, configure code violation running disparity (CVRD) error thresholds. In a configuration in which an APS switchover of a working interface to a protect interface is based on CDL HEC error thresholds, CRC error thresholds, or both, there is no workaround.

CSCin68117

Symptom: The CLI does not support patch configurations between oscfilter interfaces and voaout interfaces.

Workaround: None.

CSCeb18103

Symptom: OSC wave interface that is configured for laser safety control does not recover when the OSC link is down because of Loss of Light.

This occurs after the following sequence of events:

The OSC wave interface is not configured with laser safety control.

The OSC wave interface goes down with a Loss of Light condition.

The OSC wave interfaces at both ends are configured for LSC, with more than 3 seconds elapsed between the configurations.

The Loss of Light failure is resolved.

This problem does not appear if laser safety control is configured when the OSC wave interface is up.

Workaround: None.

Resolution: Upgrade the Cisco ONS 15530 mux/demux motherboard functional image to release 2.67 or later.

CSCea52092

Symptom: An optical supervisory channel (OSC) module may not provide power even though the laser is enabled after you have booted the shelf.

Workaround: Remove and reinsert the carrier motherboard.

CSCin60562

Symptom: If a row is created in cApsChanConfigTable using createAndWait, a set operation on an instance of cApsChanConfigIfIndex might modify another instance of that object.

Workaround: Use createAndGo to create the row.

Resolved Caveats in Release 12.2(18)SV2

CSCeb87507

Symptom: In some instances the system crashes when it attempts to parse IP SNMP related commands.

Workaround: None.

CSCed05346

Symptom: Bidirectional APS fails when the ethernetdcc interface is used as a message channel for trunk based protection if the PSM is connected directly to a wavepatch interface on an ITU trunk card or transponder line card rather than to the wdm interface on an OADM module.

Workaround: None.

CSCed22589

Symptom: Link initialization failure due to Loss of Lock might occur for ESCON traffic on some transponder line cards due to a transient failure of the clock recovery unit. Only some transponder line cards are susceptible to this failure and not all. This is an initialization failure and not a run-time failure.

Workaround: None.

Resolved Caveats in Release 12.2(18)SV1

CSCdz64021

Symptom: While performing an online removal and insertion of a protection card in a y-cable configuration, the local and remote working ports are flooded with CRC errors.

Workaround: Disconnect the standby branch of the y-cable configuration during the insertion of the standby line card or SFP optics.

CSCec28182

Symptom: Tracebacks related to CPU switch module hog issues are seen when reprogramming the 2.5-Gbps transponder line card functional image.

Workaround: None.

CSCec36614

Symptom: Performing an online removal and insertion on a tengigethernetphy interface or waveethernetphy interface when loopback is configured causes a loss of the loopback information on the hardware. However, the loopback CLI configuration is still present in the software.

Workaround: Remove and reinsert the line card, and then issue the loopback command.

CSCec59409

Symptom: Issuing a Ctrl-U when connected to a raw TL1 port causes the system to crash.

Workaround: If a TL1port is unused, apply an IP ACL to the management Ethernet interface that blocks the incoming TCP connections to ports 3082 and 3083.

CSCec88050

Symptom: Power-on diagnostics fail on the CPU switch module if a 2.5-ITU trunk card is installed in slot 1.

Workaround: None.

Resolved Caveats in Release 12.2(18)SV

CSCdu53656

A Cisco device running Cisco IOS software and enabled for the Border Gateway Protocol (BGP) is vulnerable to a Denial of Service (DOS) attack from a malformed BGP packet. The BGP is not enabled by default, and must be configured to accept traffic from an explicitly defined peer. Unless the malicious traffic appears to be sourced from a configured, trusted peer, it would be difficult to inject a malformed packet. BGP MD5 is a valid workaround for this problem.

Cisco has made free software available to address this problem. For more details, refer to this advisory, available at http://www.cisco.com/warp/public/707/cisco-sa-20040616-bgp.shtml.

CSCdz89270

Symptom: OFC (open fibre control) is not supported with Fibre Channel on the 8-port FC/GE aggregation card. The link might not initialize if an 8-port FC/GE aggregation card is used with older Fibre Channel equipment that employ OFC laser safety mechanisms.

Workaround: None.

CSCeb19410

Symptom: An 8-port FC/GE aggregation card client interface laser may be off when it is configured in a disabled y-cable APS group.

Workaround: Enable and then disable the APS group. This activates the client interface laser.

CSCec03715

Symptom: If the flow identifier on an esconphy interface is changed without deleting the old flow identifier, both the old and the new flow identifiers are present in the lookup table of the ESCON aggregation card. As a result, the old flow identifier cannot be reused on this ESCON aggregation card.

Workaround: Perform an online removal and insertion of the ESCON aggregation card or issue the following sequence of commands in interface configuration mode:

1. no cdl flow identifier

2. cdl flow identifier [OLD IDENTIFIER]

3. no cdl flow identifier

4. cdl flow identifier [NEW IDENTIFIER]

CSCec34628

Symptom: Continuous optical power monitoring alarms cause memory leaks that lead to bus error exceptions and an unexpected reload.

Workaround: None.

Limitations and Restrictions

This section provides limitations and restrictions for Cisco ONS 15530 hardware and software.

Transponder Line Cards

This section contains limitations and restrictions that apply to transponder line cards.

CRC errors might occur with 2-Gbps Fibre Channel on single-mode transponders when high input power levels are received from the client laser sources.

Data errors or link-down conditions for 2-Gbps Fibre Channel might occur when used with certain client laser sources. Transmitters in some client GBIC and SFP transceiver units might send large overshoots in optical power with signal bit transitions, causing momentary overload conditions on the transponder client side receiver. The average transmitted power level from the GBIC does not violate the overload specification of the transponder client side receiver, so a power meter does not detect the overload.

The workaround is to attenuate the signal from the client equipment to a recommended level of -12 dBm when transmitting 2-Gbps Fibre Channel services.

Error-free transmission of some D1 video signals (defined by the SMPTE 259M standard) and test patterns (such as Matrix SDI) cannot be guaranteed by the Cisco 15500 Series because of the pathological pattern in D1 video. This well-known limitation is usually overcome by the D1 video equipment vendor, who uses a proprietary, second level of scrambling. No standards exist at this time for the second level of scrambling.

8-Port FC/GE Aggregation Card

This section contains limitation and restrictions that apply to 8-port FC/GE aggregation cards.

IFCCs (InterFace Control Checks) are generated while extending the distance between an IBM mainframe and IBM 9032 Model 5 ESCON Director through FICON using an 8-port FC/GE aggregation card on a Cisco ONS 15530. These IFCCs are seen on the host side. They occur when the port is configured for FICON without flow control enabled.

The FICON bridge port (on the ESCON Director) expects to be connected directly to an N_Port of the host. Therefore, the bridge port expects the N_Port to send a minimum of six primitive signals (Idles and R_RDYs) between frames. Anything less than six primitive signals causes IFCCs to be generated on the ESCON Director, which in turn are logged on the host. The 8-port FC/GE aggregation card is pure transport and needs to delete and insert one IPG for frequency compensation. Hence, depending on the card, sometimes either five or seven idles are sent between frames. The 8-port FC/GE aggregation card cannot maintain six idles between every frame if the card is on slower side of the clock.

The workaround is to enable flow control using the flow control command on the gigabitphy interfaces.

CPU Switch Modules

This section contains limitations and restrictions that apply to CPU switch modules.

If both CPU switch modules are removed, all aggregation cards, OSC modules, transponder line cards, ITU trunk cards, and uplink cards are shut down.


Note Traffic on pass through optical channels (which passively pass through the OADM modules) are not affected by the removal of the CPU switch modules.
