Note

Cisco IOS XR Release 7.4.2 is an Extended Maintenance Release of Cisco IOS XR Release 7.4.1 for Cisco NCS 560 Series routers. For more details on the Cisco IOS XR release model and associated support, see Guidelines for Cisco IOS XR Software.


What's New in Cisco IOS XR Release 7.4.2

Feature Description

Hardware

Support for A900-IMA8CS1Z-M on Slots 0, 1, 14, and 15 by Disabling Odd Ports

With this release, the A900-IMA8CS1Z-M interface module is supported on slots 0, 1, 14, and 15 in 8X1G + 1X10 mode by disabling the odd 1G ports. You can achieve this by using the hw-module slot <0-15> im-mode 1 command to disable the eight unused odd ports (1, 3, 5, 7, 9, 11, and 15) within the slots. This helps increase the router's port density by optimizing hardware resource utilization.

This feature is available on Cisco NCS 560 Series Routers with the N560-RSP4/N560-RSP4-E route processors.

For more information, see the Cisco Network Convergence System 560-4 Router Data Sheet and Cisco ASR 900 Series Interface Modules Data Sheet.

L2VPN

EVPN Seamless Integration with VPWS

This feature enables you to seamlessly migrate the PE nodes from VPWS to EVPN-VPWS service without disruption in traffic. Such a migration offers your service providers the option to use VPWS or EVPN-VPWS services on PE nodes.

This feature introduces the vpws-seamless-integration command.

QoS

Ingress QoS scale improvement

This enhancement increases the number of interfaces with ingress policies. The interfaces are enhanced from 56K Ingress Policer scale per system (with 28K per NPU) and 7K policy-map scale per system (with 3.5K per NPU). Now you can have more ingress QoS policies, which limits the bandwidth consumed by the flow of traffic.

Segment Routing

LDP over SRTE

This feature allows an LDP-targeted adjacency over a Segment Routing policy between two routers, enabling the collapsed forwarding function. This leads to simplified network topologies and reduced operating expenses.

SR Policy Path Protection

This feature enables path protection for SR policies. It allows you to configure an SR policy with working (active) and protect (backup) candidate paths pre-programmed in the forwarding. You can monitor these candidate paths using SR Policy Liveness Monitoring probes. When the head-end detects a liveness failure on the working candidate path, it triggers a switchover to the protect candidate path.

Restrictions and Limitations on the Cisco NCS 560 Series Router

  • Unlabeled BGP PIC EDGE for global prefixes is not supported.

Caveats

This section describes open and resolved severity 1 and 2 caveats and select severity 3 caveats:

  • The “Open Caveats” sections list open caveats that apply to the current release and may apply to previous releases. A caveat that is open for a prior release and is still unresolved applies to all future releases until it is resolved.

  • The “Resolved Caveats” sections list caveats resolved in a specific release, but open in previous releases.

The bug IDs are sorted alphanumerically.


Note

The Caveats section includes the bug ID and a short description of the bug. For details on the symptoms, conditions, and workaround for a specific caveat you must use the Bug Search Tool.

Other Important Information

Upgrading Cisco IOS XR Software

Cisco IOS XR Software is installed and activated from modular packages, allowing specific features or software patches to be installed, upgraded, or downgraded without affecting unrelated processes. Software packages can be upgraded or downgraded on all supported card types, or on a single card (node).

The upgrade document for Cisco NCS 560 router is available along with the software image in NCS560_Upgrade_MOP_7.4.2.tar file.

Use user-class Option 'xr-config' Instead Of 'exr-config' To Provision ZTP

In Cisco IOS XR Release 7.3.1 and earlier, the system accepts the device sending user-class = "exr-config"; however starting Cisco IOS XR Release 7.3.2 and later, you must use only user-class = "xr-config".

In Cisco IOS XR Release 7.3.2 and later, use:

host cisco-rp0 {
   hardware ethernet e4:c7:22:be:10:ba;
   fixed-address 172.30.12.54;
   if exists user-class and option user-class = "iPXE" {
      filename = "http://172.30.0.22/boot.ipxe";
   } elsif exists user-class and option user-class = "xr-config" {
      filename = "http://172.30.0.22/scripts/cisco-rp0_ztp.sh";
   }
}
