Exceptions may be present in the documentation due to language that is hardcoded in the user interfaces of the product software, language used based on RFP documentation, or language that is used by a referenced third-party product.

The following table lists the changes to this document.

Date

Description

May 10, 2021

Cisco NX-OS Release 10.1(2) became available.

New and Enhanced Software Features

 

New Features

Feature

Description

SRTE Flow-Based Traffic Steering

Added support for SRTE Flow-Based Traffic Steering on Cisco Nexus 9000-FX,FX2, FX3, GX, and Cisco Nexus 9300 series platform switches.

For more information see, Cisco Nexus 9000 Series NX-OS Label Switching Configuration Guide, Release 10.1(x).

VXLAN Port Multi-VLAN

With Port Multi-VLAN Mapping feature you can map multiple VLANs on a trunk interface to a single global VLAN/VNI.

For more information, see the Cisco Nexus 9000 Series NX-OS VXLAN Configuration Guide, Release 10.1(x).

Two-Stage Configuration Commit

With two-stage configuration commit, when you run a command in an interactive session, it is executed and changes in configurations are stored in a staging database. These changes don’t affect the running configuration until you run the commit command. This two-stage process creates a target configuration session, where you can make, edit, and verify configuration changes before committing them to the running state of the switch. For more information see, Cisco Nexus 9000 Series NX-OS System Management Configuration Guide, Release 10.1(x).

 

The enhanced features listed below are existing features introduced in earlier releases but enhanced to support new platforms in Cisco NX-OS Release 10.1(2).

Open Issues

Bug ID

Description

CSCvx83036

Headline: ECMP load-sharing not working w/ sRC/DST change but same labels with "mpls load-share label-ip"

Symptoms: MPLS label traffic is not load-shared between ECMP member links based on inner header SRC/DST IP.

When MPLS label is kept same and the IP variant is tested, load sharing does not happen between ECMP members. If outer header MPLS label changes, load sharing happens correctly

Workarounds: If outer header MPLS Label changes load sharing will happen correctly. No work-around for IP variant load sharing

CSCvx84871

Headline: Config-replace using gNMI does not replace VNIs to range VNIs and range to sub-range VNIs

Symptoms: JSON based config-replace cannot correctly replace VNI configurations for overlapping ranges.

Workarounds: CLI based config-replace can be used to replace overlapping VNI configurations.

CSCvx86007

Headline: Intermittent Link Flaps observed with QSFP-100G-PSM4

Symptoms: Repeating flaps are seen on the links between Jericho linecard and Tahoe linecard, using CISCO-LUXTERA QSFP-100G-PSM4 rev B or C. The links recovers from the flap shortly and is stable for some time afterwards.

Workarounds: NA

CSCvx98206

Headline: BUM traffic drop after NVE flap on vpc primary post SSO

Symptoms: Vxlan BUM traffic drop on decapsulation on uplink interface on EOR with EX, FX and GX series of linecards

Workarounds: Admin flap of the NVE interface after MRIB convergence state is set to "Done"

1) Execute "show routing multicast internal convergence vrf default" and ensure convergence state is "Done".

2) Execute the following commands:

interface nve1

  shut

# Wait for approximately 120 secs for all decap routes to be withdrawn from the fib

interface nve1

  no shut

CSCvy11305

Headline: Single-strand UDE link failure in link flap

Symptoms: Additional link flap observed before link comes up when UDE feature enabled with single strand connection

Workarounds: Issue not observed with double strand connection

CSCvx75097

Headline: PVmap traffic loss seen with trigger Xconnect vlan removal/adddition

Symptoms: When XConnect configuration is inconsistent between vPC VTEP peers while configuration is in progress and not yet complete, it causes STP churn and traffic issues on unrelated vlans. The issue is seen only under below circumstances

VPC boxes are running in MST mode.

Xconnect configuration is inconsistent between VPC peers.

Xconnect access ports are up.

After the configuration is completed/corrected on both sides of the VPC peers, the STP and traffic issues goes away.

Workarounds: Keep the Xconnect ports in shut state on all VTEPs during configuring/unconfiguring Xconnect  on the associated vlans. This is to make sure that switch does not receive customer STP BPDUs causing STP churn on unrelated vlan.

CSCvx77167

Headline: Xconnect vlan deletion/bringup via DME fails

Symptoms: Configuring Xconnect along with vlan create and vn-segment mapping in a single request message via REST, does not enable xconnect.

Workarounds: User can configure Xconnect in a separate REST message. Vlan create and vn-segment  can be configured together in a single request.

CSCvx80321

Headline: 10gx4 CLI breakout port not able to send DHCP Request & DHCPv6 NA & RA during POAP

Symptoms: POAP v4 or POAP v4 may not be able to complete DHCP transaction.

This is seen on the PID :- N9K-X9624D-R2 Line card

POAP v4 will print below logs :

2021 May 11 06:11:55 switch %$ VDC-1 %$ %POAP-2-POAP_INFO: Recieved DHCP offer from server ip  - 192.168.1.10

2021 May 11 06:13:04 switch %$ VDC-1 %$ %POAP-2-POAP_FAILURE: [FGE18480P4B-74:26:AC:FD:DE:FF] - POAP DHCP discover phase failed

Workarounds: Below are few workarounds.

1. Flap the port on intermediate switch.

2. Directly connect the port to DHCP server.

3. Use a hardware breakout cable.

4. Avoid using software (cli) breakout.

5. Use Management port for POAP.

6. Use ipv6 POAP.

7. User any other port which doesn't require software breakout.

 

Resolved Issues

Bug ID

Description

CSCvx97566

Headline: multicast traffic does not pass nexus 9300 when "layer-2 multicast lookup mac" is configured

Symptoms: Multicast traffic does not pass through the switch

Workarounds: remove below configuration command

  layer-2 multicast lookup mac

CSCvy02009

Headline: RFC6368: NXOS BGP does not push AS_PATH in ATTR_SET

Symptoms: In VXLAN-EVPN topology with iBGP PE-CE configured on VTEPs, a non NXOS VTEP complains while performing "pop path attributes" explained in RFC6368 due to AS_PATH being absent in the ATTR_SET attribute.

Workarounds: None.

CSCvy18252

Headline: Thurn - nvram re-init may cause system crash during boot

Symptoms: nvram re-init during boot can result in PCIE uncorrectable errors and subsequent system reload for N9K-C92348GC.

Workarounds: The issue will resolve itself following 2 system reloads.

CSCvy03375

Headline: Supporting RS FEC on N9K-X97160YC-EX

Symptoms: When connecting a Nexus 9500 N9K-X97160YC-EX linecard to a Catalyst 9000 switch while utilizing a SFP-10/25G-LR-S transceiver, FEC auto negotiations fails and the link does not come up.  This is seen at 25Gbe speeds and does not impact 10G speed if statically set.

Workarounds: The port will come up if the speed is set to 10Gbe statically in the port configurations. This disables the need for FEC.

CSCvw82041

Headline: [J:256]: MACs are not unfreezing from l2rib after MAC-Move stopped

Symptoms: Few mac???s (10-20) out of 10K mac???s are stuck in "permanently frozen" state in L2RIB even after duplicate hosts are removed.

Workarounds: clear mac address-table dynamic address

CSCvy05856

Headline: After adding invalid upgrade RPMS, installation of actual RPM fails

Symptoms: The installation of upgrade RPM fails with the below error

install add bgp-3.0.0.0.rpm activate

[1] For specific fan speeds see the Overview section of the Hardware Installation Guide.
[2] This switch runs with +1 redundancy mode so that if one fan fails, the switch can sustain operation. But if a second fan fails, this switch is not designed to sustain operation. Hence before waiting for the major threshold temperature to be hit, the switch will power down due to entering the fan policy trigger command.
