Cisco Catalyst 6500 Series Switches

Cisco Catalyst Operating System Software Version 7.1(1)

Product Bulletin No. 1602

Cisco Catalyst Operating System Software
Version 7.1(1) for the Catalyst 6000 and 4000 Series Switches

The Cisco Catalyst Operating System software Version 7.1(1) for the Supervisor Engine supports the Cisco Catalyst 6000 and Catalyst 4000 Series switches.

Hardware Supported

The system software version 7.1(1) supports all cards already previously supported by the Cisco Catalyst Operating System software on the Cisco Catalyst 6000 and Cisco Catalyst 4000 Series Supervisor Engines. In addition, the Catalyst Operating System software release 7.1.1 supports the following additional hardware modules:

Hardware Module Description Catalyst 6500 Module Catalyst 4000 Module
WS-X6501-10GEX4

1-port 10-Gigabit Ethernet Module

X

WS-X6524-100FX-MM

24-port 100BaseFX Ethernet Module

X

WS-X4448-GB-RJ45

Catalsyt 4000 Family 48-port 10/100/1000 BASE-T Module

X



The Catalyst Operating System software release 7.1.1 also includes support for the Cisco 7603 Internet Router:

Note The Cisco 7603 Internet Router supports all Supervisor Engine configurations.

Software Features

Software Feature Description Catalyst 6000 Feature Catalyst 4000 Feature
IEEE 802.3ad

Link Aggregation Control Protocol, (LACP) is defined in IEEE 802.3ad and allows Cisco switches to manage Ethernet channeling with devices that conform to the 802.3ad specification.

LACP is similar to Cisco's proprietary implementation of EtherChannel, Port Aggregation Protocol (PAgP) which allows ports with similar characteristics to form a channel through dynamic negotiation with a partner system.

IEEE 802.1w/802.1s

The IEEE 802.1w specification, (Rapid Spanning Tree Protocol) provides for sub-second reconvergence of the Spanning Tree Protocol after failure of one of the uplinks in a bridged environment. 802.1w provides the structure on which the 802.1s feature operates.

The IEEE 802.1s specification (MST - multiple Spanning Tree) allows a user to build multiple spanning trees over VLAN trunks. Fast convergence of the MST topology is achieved by using a modified version of the RSTP protocool.

BPDU Filtering Per Port

With Version 7.1(1) of the Catalyst Operating system, BPDU Filtering can now be applied on a per-port basis. BPDU Filtering (both ingress and egress) can now be enabled on any ports, including non-portfast-enabled and trunk ports.

X

IGMP Snooping on Private VLANs

IGMP Snooping can be applied on a Private VLAN.

X

IGMP Snooping Querier

This feature provides the ability to run IGMP Snooping in the absence of a multicast router. The switch then acts as an IGMP Querier.

X

IGMP Filtering

IGMP Filtering enables the Catalyst 4000 to filter (permit or deny) IGMP packets by allowing the configuration of profiles of IP multicast groups. A profile consists of one or more ranges of IP multicast addresses which can then be filtered or monitored on a per switch port basis.

The monitoring function of IGMP filtering enables administrators to track the time and duration that a port has been a member of an IP multicast group.

X

Option for No VTP

Enables a switch to not only be a non-participant in VTP, but also to drop all VTP traffic (unlike Transparent mode which passes VTP traffic) thus creating a VTP boundary.

X

X

Portfast on Trunks

Allows portfast to be configured for trunk/channel ports. On link-up state, the port immediately transitions into Spanning Tree forwarding mode, bypassing listening and learning states.

This feature is useful for direct connections to routers or servers.

X

X

Show Port MAC Address

Enables users to view the MAC address for each physical port on the switch from the switch's range of MAC addresses.

X

Single Device Per Port Enhancement

Enables users to move hosts to different switch ports without the 10 minutes delay duration previously required by the port security feature implementation.

The timer values can be set from a 1-minute minimum to 1440 minutes maximum.

X

SMON-MIB VLAN Stats Support

Per-VLAN statistics (total packets, octets, nucast packets and nucast octets) are provided through the SMON VlanIdStatsTable of the SMON-MIB with Supervisor Engine 2 / MSFC2.

X

MAC Address Notification

MAC Address Notification allows the network administrator to monitor the MAC addresses that are learned by the switch and those which are aged out or removed from the CAM table. Notifications can be sent to the administrator for both unicast and multicast addresses and include SNMPv2 traps or a history log of the change.

The following software features all require Cisco Catalyst Operating System system software 7.1(1) for the Supervisor Engines.

Orderable Software Images

The following table lists the software versions and applicable ordering information for the Cisco Catalyst 6000 and Catalyst 4000 Series Supervisor Engine software. Starting with version 7.1(1), The 'non-krypto' images will now be designated as K8 images, denoting weak encryption, where SNMPv3 and Kerberos telnet session data is encrypted.

Caution: Always back up the switch configuration file before upgrading or downgrading the switch software to avoid losing all or part of the configuration stored in NVRAM. When downgrading switch software, you will lose your configuration. Use the write network command or the copy config tftp command to back up your configuration to a Trivial File Transfer Protocol (TFTP) server. Use the copy config flash command to back up the configuration to a Flash device.
