Introduction

The Cisco Application Centric Infrastructure (ACI) is an architecture that allows the application to define the networking requirements in a programmatic way. This architecture simplifies, optimizes, and accelerates the entire application deployment lifecycle. Cisco Application Policy Infrastructure Controller (APIC) is the software, or operating system, that acts as the controller.

This document describes the features, issues, and limitations for the Cisco APIC software. For the features, issues, and limitations for the Cisco NX-OS software for the Cisco Nexus 9000 series switches, see the Cisco Nexus 9000 ACI-Mode Switches Release Notes, Release 16.0(1).

For more information about this product, see "Related Content."

New Software Features

Feature

Description

BGP autonomous system (AS) enhancements

Cisco APIC now supports the Remove Private AS option to remove private autonomous system numbers from the AS_path in an eBGP route, and supports the AS-Path match clause while creating a BGP per-peer route-map.

For more information, see the Cisco APIC Layer 3 Networking Configuration Guide, Release 6.0(x).

Breakout port support with the Cisco N9K-C93600CD-GX and N9K-C9316D-GX switches

Dynamic and auto breakout ports are now supported with the Cisco N9K-C93600CD-GX and N9K-C9316D-GX switches.

For more information, see the Cisco APIC Layer 2 Networking Configuration Guide, Release 6.0(x).

Cisco Nexus 9000 switch secure erase

Cisco Nexus 9000 switches utilize persistent storage to maintain system software images, switch configuration, software logs, and operational history. Each of these areas can contain user-specific information such as details on network architecture and design, and potential target vectors for would-be attackers. The secure erase feature enables you comprehensively to erase this information, which you can do when you return a switch with return merchandise authorization (RMA), upgrade or replace a switch, or decommission a system that has reached its end-of-life.

For more information, see the Cisco APIC Getting Started Guide, Release 6.0(x).

SPAN extended filter entries

You can now configure extended filter entries for filter groups in a SPAN session, which enable you to monitor traffic originating from access nodes in leaf nodes.

For more information, see the Cisco APIC Basic Configuration Guide, Release 6.0(x).

Support for a user group map rule for SAML and OAuth 2

Authentication by an external server for SAML and OAuth 2 is based on user group map rule information, in addition to the standard CiscoAVpair-based authentication.

For more information, see the Cisco APIC Security Configuration Guide, Release 6.0(x).

Support for BFD on secondary IPv4/IPv6 subnets

Bidirectional Forwarding Detection (BFD) is now supported for static routes that are reachable using secondary IPv4/IPv6 subnets that are configured on routed interfaces. This feature was originally introduced in the 5.2(4) release and is now available in the 6.0 releases.

For more information, see the Cisco APIC Layer 3 Networking Configuration Guide, Release 6.0(x).

Support for PTP G.8275.1 on remote leaf switch peer links and on vPCs

You can now use the PTP Telecom profile (G.8275.1) on virtual port channels (vPCs) and on remote leaf switch peer links.

For more information, see the Cisco APIC System Management Configuration Guide, Release 6.0(x).

Support for remote pools with a subnet mask of up to /28

Remote leaf switches now support remote pools with a subnet mask of up to /28. In prior releases, remote leaf switches supported remote pools with a subnet mask of up to /24.

For more information, see the Cisco APIC Basic Configuration Guide, Release 6.0(x).

Support for SyncE on vPCs and on remote leaf switch peer links

You can now use SyncE on vPCs and on remote leaf switch peer links.

For more information, see the Cisco APIC System Management Configuration Guide, Release 6.0(x).

Transport Layer Security version 1.3 support

Transport Layer Security (TLS) version 1.3 is now supported. This feature was originally introduced in the 5.2(5) release and is now available in the 6.0 releases.

Weight-based symmetric policy-based redirect (PBR)

In weight-based symmetric PBR, you can set weights for a PBR destination (service node) based on the capacity of the service node, and traffic is load balanced based on the set weights.

For more information, see the Cisco APIC Layer 4 to Layer 7 Services Deployment Guide, Release 6.0(x).

New Hardware Features

For the new hardware features, see the Cisco Nexus 9000 ACI-Mode Switches Release Notes, Release 16.0(1).

Changes in Behavior

·       In the Cisco APIC GUI, on the "Interface Configuration" page (Fabric > Access Policies > Interface Configuration), the node table now contains the following columns:

o   Pod: The ID of the pod to which the node belongs.

o   Interface: The ID of interface.

o   Node: The ID of the node.

o   Port Type: The type of the port on the node (access or fabric).

o   Admin State: The administrative state of the node.

o   Port Mode: The mode of the port on the node (individual, port channel, or virtual port channel, fabric leaf port, fabric spine port, spine port, or FEX connected).

o   Policy Group: The policy group to which the node belongs.

o   Interface Description: An optional description of the interface.

·       In the Cisco APIC GUI, On the "Welcome to Access Policies" page (Fabric > Access Policies > Quick Start), work pane now contains the following choices:

o   Configure Interfaces: Used to configure the interfaces on a node.

o   Breakout: Used to configure breakout ports on a node.

o   Create a SPAN Source and Destination: Used to create a SPAN source group.

o   Convert Interfaces: Used to convert interfaces on a node to uplink or downlink ports.

o   Fabric Extender: Used to connect a node to a fabric extender (FEX).

·       In the Cisco APIC GUI, the Admin > AAA pages have been modified. The Work panes of Authentication, Security, and Users have been enhanced for better functionality and ease of use.

·       The hash result of symmetric EtherChannel could be different because of the fix for issue CSCwb93059. This change could cause asymmetric flow. For example, if the ingress leaf switch for the incoming traffic uses a prior release and the ingress leaf switch for the return traffic uses this release or later, the switches get different hash results for the incoming and return traffic.

·       Transport Layer Security (TLS) version 1.0 and 1.1 are no longer supported.

CSCvt99966

A SPAN session with the source type set to "Routed-Outside" goes down. The SPAN configuration is pushed to the anchor or non-anchor nodes, but the interfaces are not pushed due to the following fault: "Failed to configure SPAN with source SpanFL3out due to Source fvIfConn not available".

6.0(1g) and later

CSCvy40511

Traffic from an endpoint under a remote leaf switch to an external node and its attached external networks is dropped. This occurs if the external node is attached to an L3Out with a vPC and there is a redistribution configuration on the L3Out to advertise the reachability of the external nodes as direct-attached hosts.

6.0(1g) and later

CSCvz83636

For a health record query using the last page and a time range, the GUI displays some health records with a creation time that are beyond the time range (such as 24h).

6.0(1g)

CSCwa53478

After migrating a VM between two hosts using VMware vMotion, EPG does not get deployed on the target leaf node. When affected, the fvIfConn managed object corresponding to the missing EPG can be seen on APIC, but it would be missing from the target leaf node when queried.

6.0(1g)

CSCwa58061

When there are more than 40 objects in the tree and you double click on an object in the BGP Peer table, then the tree does not expand because the tree does not have pagination. The APIC tries to load all objects in one query, which is drastically slows the GUI.

6.0(1g)

CSCwa78740

When HBR is enabled on a source EPG's bridge domain and the subnet is configured with the private scope (advertise externally = FALSE), if there is a shared service EPG contract with an L3Out, the L3Out will not publish the subnet or the corresponding /32 host routes because of this private scope.

In this scenario, if there is also an explicit ESG leakRoute configured for the same subnet across those VRF instances, the leakRoute is faulted because the route is already shared with an EPG contract, and the leakRoute is installed in the hardware along with a pcTag, then the leakRoute should not be processed and any flags under it should not be considered.

But, if this explicit leakRoute has a public scope, the /32 host routes are still published externally out of the L3Out, which should not happen as the leakRoute itself is faulted and bridge domain subnet scope is private.

6.0(1g)

CSCwa90058

When a VRF-level subnet <fvRtSummSubnet> and instP-level subnet <l3extSubnet> with a summary policy is configured for an overlapping subnet, the routes will get summarized by the configuration that was added first. But, the fault on the configuration that was added last will not be shown in the Cisco APIC GUI.

6.0(1g)

CSCwa95297

When a VRF-level subnet, fvRtSummSubnet, exists with a summary policy and an instP level subnet, <l3extSubnet>, with the same subnet as the VRF-level subnet is associated with summary policy, then there won't be any fault seen on the Cisco APIC. The summarization will be done according to the VRF-level subnet <fvRtSummSubnet>.

VMMmgr process experiences a very high load for an extended period of time that impacts other operations that involve it.

The process may consume excessive amount of memory and get aborted. This can be confirmed with the command "dmesg -T | grep oom_reaper" if messages such as the following are reported:

         oom_reaper: reaped process 5578 (svc_ifc_vmmmgr.)

6.0(1g) and later

CSCwa78573

When the "BGP" branch is expanded in the Fabric > Inventory > POD 1 > Leaf > Protocols > BGP navigation path, the GUI freezes and you cannot navigate to any other page.

This occurs because the APIC gets large set of data in response, which cannot be handled by the browser for parts of the GUI that do not have the pagination.

6.0(1g) and later

N/A

Beginning in Cisco APIC release 4.1(1), the IP SLA monitor policy validates the IP SLA port value. Because of the validation, when TCP is configured as the IP SLA type, Cisco APIC no longer accepts an IP SLA port value of 0, which was allowed in previous releases. An IP SLA monitor policy from a previous release that has an IP SLA port value of 0 becomes invalid if the Cisco APIC is upgraded to release 4.1(1) or later. This results in a failure for the configuration import or snapshot rollback.

The workaround is to configure a non-zero IP SLA port value before upgrading the Cisco APIC, and use the snapshot and configuration export that was taken after the IP SLA port change.

6.0(1g) and later

N/A

If you use the REST API to upgrade an app, you must create a new firmware.OSource to be able to download a new app image.

6.0(1g) and later

N/A

In a multipod configuration, before you make any changes to a spine switch, ensure that there is at least one operationally "up" external link that is participating in the multipod topology. Failure to do so could bring down the multipod connectivity. For more information about multipod, see the Cisco Application Centric Infrastructure Fundamentals document and the Cisco APIC Getting Started Guide.

6.0(1g) and later

N/A

With a non-english SCVMM 2012 R2 or SCVMM 2016 setup and where the virtual machine names are specified in non-english characters, if the host is removed and re-added to the host group, the GUID for all the virtual machines under that host changes. Therefore, if a user has created a micro segmentation endpoint group using "VM name" attribute specifying the GUID of respective virtual machine, then that micro segmentation endpoint group will not work if the host (hosting the virtual machines) is removed and re-added to the host group, as the GUID for all the virtual machines would have changed. This does not happen if the virtual name has name specified in all english characters.

6.0(1g) and later

N/A

A query of a configurable policy that does not have a subscription goes to the policy distributor. However, a query of a configurable policy that has a subscription goes to the policy manager. As a result, if the policy propagation from the policy distributor to the policy manager takes a prolonged amount of time, then in such cases the query with the subscription might not return the policy simply because it has not reached policy manager yet.

6.0(1g) and later

N/A

When there are silent hosts across sites, ARP glean messages might not be forwarded to remote sites if a leaf switch without -EX or a later designation in the product ID happens to be in the transit path and the VRF is deployed on that leaf switch, the switch does not forward the ARP glean packet back into the fabric to reach the remote site. This issue is specific to transit leaf switches without -EX or a later designation in the product ID and does not affect leaf switches that have -EX or a later designation in the product ID. This issue breaks the capability of discovering silent hosts.

6.0(1g) and later

N/A

Typically, faults are generally raised based on the presence of the BGP route target profile under the VRF table. However, if a BGP route target profile is configured without actual route targets (that is, the profile has empty policies), a fault will not be raised in this situation.

6.0(1g) and later

N/A

MPLS interface statistics shown in a switch's CLI get cleared after an admin or operational down event.

6.0(1g) and later

N/A

MPLS interface statistics in a switch's CLI are reported every 10 seconds. If, for example, an interface goes down 3 seconds after the collection of the statistics, the CLI reports only 3 seconds of the statistics and clears all of the other statistics.

6.0(1g) and later
