Whats New in Cisco IOS XE Fuji 16.8.1a

Software Features in Cisco IOS XE Fuji 16.8.1a

Feature Name

Description and License Level Information

AVC: NBAR2 attribute support for QoS

Wired Application Visibility and Control (Wired AVC) Attribute-based QoS (EasyQoS)—Support for defining QoS classes and policies based on Network-Based Application Recognition (NBAR) attributes instead of specific protocols, is available, with a few limitations. Only business-relevance and traffic-class are the supported NBAR attributes.


(IP Base and IP Services)

DHCPv6: Client Link-Layer Address Option (RFC 6939)

Defines an optional mechanism and the related DHCPv6 option to allow first-hop DHCPv6 relay agents (relay agents that are connected to the same link as the client) to provide the client's link-layer address in the DHCPv6 messages being sent towards the server.


(LAN Base, IP Base, and IP Services)

DHCPv6: Support for Option 52

and

DNS Search List (DNSSL) Option

Wireless access points use the The Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol version 6 (DHCPv6) option 52 (RFC 5417) to supply the IPv6 management interface addresses of the primary, secondary, and tertiary wireless controllers.


The DNSSL option is a list of DNS suffix domain names used by IPv6 hosts when they perform DNS query searches for short, unqualified domain names. The DNSSL option contains one or more domain names.


(LAN Base, IP Base, and IP Services)

Support for validation of DHCP Option 125

DHCP option 125 is used by DHCP clients and servers to identify vendor-specific information.

Support for validation of DHCP option 125 is enabled if the switch is configured as a DHCP relay agent or if the DHCP snooping feature is turned on.

Note that the switch drops those packets that do not conform to the RFC3925 format (HEX format) of option 125.

Fast Software Upgrade (FSU)

Reduces traffic downtime during a software upgrade or reload. The fast software upgrade feature is supported on both stacking and standalone systems.

Note 

The feature is supported only with software upgrade in the install mode.


(LAN Base, IP Base, and IP Services)

IEEE 1588v2, Precision Time Protocol (PTP) support

PTP is defined in IEEE 1588 as Precision Clock Synchronization for Networked Measurements and Control Systems, and was developed to synchronize the clocks in packet-based networks that include distributed device clocks of varying precision and stability. A PTP profile is the set of allowed PTP features applicable to a device. Only the default profile is available in Cisco IOS XE Fuji 16.8.1a.


(IP Base and IP Services)

IP-aware Ingress Netflow on VRF Interfaces

Enables the collection of virtual routing and forwarding (VRF) IDs from incoming packets on a device by applying an input flow monitor having a flow record that collects the VRF ID as a key or a non-key field. IP-aware VRF ingress Netflow is supported only on the ingress traffic with IPv4, IPv6 and Multicast Virtual Private Network version 4 (MVPNv4) as Customer Edge Router (CE) facing interface.


(IP Services)

Media Access Control Security (MACsec): Must-Secure Support for SW-SW MACsec (128-bit and 256-bit encryption)

Support for the must-secure feature is enabled for MKA uplink. With must-secure, all the packets in data traffic are encrypted and unencrypted packets are dropped.


(LAN Base, IP Base, and IP Services)

MACsec enhancements—MACsec Variable length CKN and Optional support for ICV

  • MACsec Variable length CKN—Connectivity association key name (CKN) is enhanced to support variable length key-string for 128-bit encryption of MKA-PSK sessions. The range for CKN key-string varies from 1 to 32 hex-digits.

  • Optional support for ICV—A switch configured with MACsec accepts either MACsec or non-MACsec frames, depending on the policy associated with the MKA peer. MACsec frames are encrypted and protected with an integrity check value (ICV). Starting with this release, the ICV indicator in the MACsec Key Agreement Protocol Data Unit (MKPDU) is made optional.


(IP Base and IP Services)

OCSP multiple response handling

Enables support to handle multiple Online Certificate Status Protocol (OCSP) single responses on an OCSP client.


(IP Services)

Programmability

  • Guest Shell Logging and Tracing Support—Provides logging services for guest applications that run separately from the host system, to report tracing data to the host file system. The tracing data is saved in an IOX tracelog and the logging data is saved in the IOS syslog, on the host machine.

  • Model Based AAA—Implements the NETCONF Access Control Model (NACM). NACM is a form of role-based access control (RBAC) specified in RFC 6536.

  • NETCONF Global Session Lock and Kill Session—Provides a global lock and the ability to kill non-responsive sessions in NETCONF. During a session conflict or client misuse of the global lock, NETCONF sessions can be monitored via the show netconf-yang sessions command, and non-responsive sessions can be cleared using the clear configuration lock command.

  • NETCONF and RESTCONF Debug commands—Commands for debugging were added.

  • NETCONF and RESTCONF IPv6 Support—Data model interfaces (DMIs) support the use of IPv6 protocol. DMI IPv6 support helps client applications to communicate with services that use IPv6 addresses. External facing interfaces will provide dual-stack support; both IPv4 and IPv6.

  • RESTCONF—Provides an RFC 8040 compliant HTTP-based protocol that provides a programmatic interface for accessing data defined in YANG, using the datastore concepts defined in NETCONF.

  • YANG Data Models—For the list of Cisco IOS XE YANG models available with this release, navigate to https://github.com/YangModels/yang/tree/master/vendor/cisco/xe/1681.

    Revision statements embedded in the YANG files indicate if there has been a model revision. The README.md file in the same github location highlights changes that have been made in the release.

  • Operational Data Parser Polling—Starting with Cisco IOS XE Fuji 16.8.1a, the Operational Data Parser Polling feature is deprecated. All operational data models provide direct operational data model access, hence this feature is no longer required.


(LAN Base, IP Base, and IP Services)

Right-To-Use (RTU) Add-On Licenses

Enables configuration of the DNA Essentials and DNA Advantage add-on licenses on the switch. The features available with add-on license levels provide Cisco innovations on the switch, as well as on the Cisco Digital Network Architecture Center (Cisco DNA Center).

Add-On Licenses require an RTU image-based as a pre-requisite:

  • The DNA Essentials add-on license can be purchased with LAN Base, IP Base, or IP Services image-based licenses.

  • The DNA Advantage (Contains DNA Essentials plus more) add-on license can be purchased only with IP Base or IP Services image-based licenses.


A license level does not apply

Transmission Control Protocol (TCP) Maximum Segment Size (MSS) Adjustment

Enables configuration of the maximum segment size for transient packets that traverse the device during a TCP session.


(IP Base and IP Services)

New on the Web UI

These features are introduced on the Web UI in this release

  • Python Sandbox—A new sandbox is introduced that to allows you to learn the Python APIs available to execute IOS commands (both Configuration and EXEC CLIs) and NETCONF requests. You can try sample Python scripts to see how the network device responds to them and get a better understanding of how Python APIs operate on the device. You can safely run your Python scripts in the sandbox before applying them to the network device.

  • Expose the password life time details from AAA to Web UI—A new security mechanism for defining rules, constraints and restrictions when specifying user passwords.

Accessing Hidden Commands

Starting with Cisco IOS XE Fuji 16.8.1a, as an improved security measure, the way in which hidden commands can be accessed has changed.

Hidden commands have always been present in Cisco IOS XE, but were not equipped with CLI help. This means that entering enter a question mark (?) at the system prompt did not display the list of available commands. For information about CLI help, see Understanding the Help System. Such hidden commands are only meant to assist Cisco TAC in advanced troubleshooting and are therefore not documented.

Starting with Cisco IOS XE Fuji 16.8.1a, hidden commands are available under:

  • Category 1—Hidden commands in privileged or User EXEC mode. Begin by entering the service internal command to access these commands.

  • Category 2—Hidden commands in one of the configuration modes (global, interface and so on). These commands do not require the service internal command.

Further, the following applies to hidden commands under Category 1 and 2:

  • The commands have CLI help. Entering enter a question mark (?) at the system prompt displays the list of available commands.

    Note: For Category 1, enter the service internal command before you enter the question mark; you do not have to do this for Category 2.

  • The system generates a %PARSER-5-HIDDEN syslog message when the command is used. For example:
    *Feb 14 10:44:37.917: %PARSER-5-HIDDEN: Warning!!! 'show processes memory old-header ' is a hidden command. 
    Use of this command is not recommended/supported and will be removed in future.
    
    

Apart from category 1 and 2, there remain internal commands displayed on the CLI, for which the system does NOT generate the %PARSER-5-HIDDEN syslog message.


Important

We recommend that you use any hidden command only under TAC supervision.

If you find that you are using a hidden command, open a TAC case for help with finding another way of collecting the same information as the hidden command (for a hidden EXEC mode command), or to configure the same functionality (for a hidden configuration mode command) using non-hidden commands.

Note

  1. Prime Infrastructure 2.0 enables you to manage Cisco WLC 7.5.102.0 with the features of Cisco WLC 7.4.110.0 and earlier releases. Prime Infrastructure 2.0 does not support any features of Cisco WLC 7.5.102.0 including the new AP platforms.

  2. If MSE is deployed on your network, we recommend that you upgrade to Cisco Prime Infrastructure 2.1.2.

  3. Because of SHA-2 certificate implementation, MSE 7.6 is not compatible with Cisco IOS XE Release 3.6E and later. Therefore, we recommend that you upgrade to MSE 8.0.

  4. Cisco 5700 (with Cisco IOS XE Release 03.06.03E/Cisco IOS XE Release 03.07.02E) inter-operates as a Peer MC with Catalyst 3650 running Cisco IOS XE Denali 16.1.1.

  5. The Cisco IOS XE Denali 16.2.1 features are not available with 3.0.2, but 3.0.2 is compatible with Cisco IOS XE Denali 16.2.1.

Finding the Software Version

The package files for the Cisco IOS XE software are stored on the system board flash device (flash:).

You can use the show version privileged EXEC command to see the software version that is running on your switch.


Note

Although the show version output always shows the software image running on the switch, the model name shown at the end of this display is the factory configuration and does not change if you upgrade the software license.

You can also use the dir filesystem: privileged EXEC command to see the directory names of other software images that you might have stored in flash memory.

Upgrading the Switch Software

This section covers the various aspects of upgrading or downgrading the device software.


Note

You cannot use the Web UI to install, upgrade, or downgrade device software.

Automatic Boot Loader Upgrade

When you upgrade from any prior Cisco IOS XE 3.x.xE release to a Cisco IOS XE Denali 16.x.x, or Cisco IOS XE Everest 16.x.x, or Cisco IOS XE Fuji 16.x.x release for the first time, the boot loader may be automatically upgraded, based on the hardware version of the switch. If the boot loader is automatically upgraded, it will take effect on the next reload. If you go back to a Cisco IOS XE Release 3.x.xE, your boot loader will not be downgraded. The updated boot loader supports all previous releases.

For subsequent Cisco IOS XE Denali 16.x.x, or Cisco IOS XE Everest 16.x.x, or Cisco IOS XE Fuji 16.x.x releases, if there is a new bootloader in the release, it may be automatically upgraded based on the hardware version of the switch when you boot up your switch with the new image for the first time.


Caution

Do not power cycle your switch during the upgrade.

Scenario

Automatic Boot Loader Response

If you boot Cisco IOS XE Fuji 16.8.1a the first time

The boot loader may be upgraded to version 4.66. For example:
BOOTLDR: CAT3K_CAA Boot Loader (CAT3K_CAA-HBOOT-M) Version 4.66, RELEASE SOFTWARE (P)

If the automatic boot loader upgrade occurs, while booting Cisco IOS XE Fuji 16.8.1a, you will see the following on the console:

%IOSXEBOOT-Tue-###: (rp/0): Oct 17 13:07:19 Universal 2017 PLEASE DO NOT POWER CYCLE ### BOOT LOADER UPGRADING 4
%IOSXEBOOT-loader-boot: (rp/0): upgrade successful 4

Automatic Microcode Upgrade

During a Cisco IOS image upgrade or downgrade on a PoE or UPoE switch, the microcode is updated to reflect applicable feature enhancements and bug fixes. Do not restart the switch during the upgrade or downgrade process.

Starting with Cisco IOS XE Denali 16.1.1 and all later releases:It takes approximately an additional 4 minutes to complete the microcode upgrade in addition to the normal reload time; however, data traffic continues to be forwarded during the upgrade. The microcode update occurs only during an image upgrade or downgrade on PoE or UPoE switches. It does not occur during switch reloads or on non-PoE switches.

The following console messages are displayed during microcode upgrade:

MM [1] MCU version 111 sw ver 105
MM [2] MCU version 111 sw ver 105

You cannot boot Cisco IOS XE Fuji 16.x.x, Cisco IOS XE Everest 16.x.x, or Cisco IOS XE Denali 16.x.x via TFTP for the first time with a Cisco IOS XE 3.x.xE boot loader. The Cisco IOS XE 3.x.xE boot loaders have a limitation, which prevents the booting of an image larger than 400MB via the TFTP server. Since Cisco IOS XE Fuji 16.x.x, Cisco IOS XE Everest 16.x.x, and Cisco IOS XE Denali 16.x.x images are larger than 400MB, you must boot the image via flash.
  1. show run | i tftp

    Use this command to make sure your tftp server is reachable from IOS via GigabitEthernet0/0.

    Switch# show run | i tftp
    ip tftp source-interface GigabitEthernet0/0
    ip tftp blocksize 8192
    Switch#
    Switch# show run | i ip route vrf

    BOOT variable = flash:cat3k_caa-universalk9.16.08.01a.SPA.bin;
    Allow Dev Key = yes
    Manual Boot = yes
    Enable Break = yes
    Switch#
    
    
Step 3

Reload

  1. reload

    Use this command to reload the switch.

    Switch# reload
    
    
  2. boot flash

    If your switches are configured with auto boot, the stack will automatically boot up with the new image. If not, you can manually boot flash

    Note 
    When you boot the new image, the boot loader is automatically updated.
    switch:boot flash:cat3k_caa-universalk9.16.08.01a.SPA.bin
    
    
  3. show version

    After the new image boots up, use this command to verify the version of the new image.

Step 2

Copy new image to stack

Copy the new image to flash: (If you point to the source image on a TFTP server you can skip this section and go to: Software install image to flash).

  1. copy tftp: flash:

    Use this command to copy the image from the tftp server to flash.

    Switch# copy tftp://5.28.11.250/cat3k_caa-universalk9.16.08.01a.SPA.bin flash:
    cat3k_caa-universalk9.16.08.01a.SPA.bin
    Destination filename [cat3k_caa-universalk9.16.08.01a.SPA.bin]?
    Accessing tftp://5.28.11.250/cat3k_caa-universalk9.16.08.01a.SPA.bin...

    GigabitEthernet0/0):
    !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    [OK - 373203016 bytes]
    
    
  2. dir flash:

    Use this command to confirm that the image has been successfully copied to flash.

    Switch# dir flash:*.bin
    Directory of flash:/
     
    32339 -rw- 373217171 Mar 1 2018 13:52:53 -07:00 cat3k_caa-universalk9.16.08.01a.SPA.bin
     
    1562509312 bytes total (731021312 bytes free)
    Switch#
     
    
Step 3

Set boot variable

  1. boot system flash:packages.conf

    Use this command to set the boot variable to flash:packages.conf .

    Switch(config)# boot system flash:packages.conf
    Switch(config)# exit
  2. write memory

    Use this command to save boot settings.

    Switch# write memory
  3. show boot system

    Use this command to verify the boot variable is set to flash:packages.conf .

    The output should display BOOT variable = flash:packages.conf .

    Switch# show boot system
Step 4

Software install image to flash

  1. request platform software package install

    Use this command to install the target image to flash. Use the switch all option to upgrade all switches in your stack. Use the auto-copy option to copy the .bin image from flash: to all other switches in your stack

    We recommend copying the image to a TFTP server or the flash drive of the active switch. If you point to an image on the flash or USB drive of a member switch (instead of the active), you must specify the exact flash or USB drive - otherwise installation fails. For example, if the image is on the flash drive of member switch 3, the corresponding flash drive is flash-3: Switch# request platform software package install switch all file flash-3:cat3k_caa-universalk9.16.08.01a.SPA.bin new auto-copy

    Note 
    You must use the new option when you upgrade from Cisco IOS XE Denali 16.1.x, 16.2.x or 16.3.1 to Cisco IOS XE Everest 16.x.x or Cisco IOS XE Fuji 16.8.1a, because there are packaging changes in the different 16.x.x releases.
    Note 
    When you execute the command, the following message is displayed. This is expected and does not affect the upgrade. See CSCux82059: Unknown package type 21

  3. dir flash:*.bin

    After you have successfully installed the image, you no longer need the.bin image. If you copied the file to flash, use this command to check if it is still saved in the the flash of each switch.

    Switch# dir flash:*.bin
    Directory of flash:/

    Switch#
    
    
  4. delete flash:

    If an image is still saved, use this command to delete it, if not, it has been deleted as part of the install operation and you can skip this step.

    Switch# delete flash:cat3k_caa-universalk9.16.08.01a.SPA.bin
    Delete filename [cat3k_caa-universalk9.16.08.01a.SPA.bin]?
    Delete flash:/ cat3k_caa-universalk9.16.08.01a.SPA.bin? [confirm]
    Switch#
    
    
Step 5

Reload

  1. reload

    Use this command in the privileged EXEC mode to reload the switch.

    Switch# reload
    
    
  2. boot flash:

    If the switch is configured with auto boot, then the stack automatically boots up with the new image. If not, you can manually boot flash:packages.conf

    switch:boot flash:packages.conf
    
    
  3. show version

    Use this command to verify the version of the new image.

    Switch# show version

Procedure


Step 1

Clean Up

  1. request platform software package clean

    Use this command to clean up old installation files; this ensures that you have sufficient space in the flash drive, to expand a new image. Use the switch all option to clean up all switches in your stack.

    Switch# request platform software package clean switch all file flash:

    Switch#
    
Step 2

Copy new image to stack

Copy the new image to flash: (If you point to the source image on a TFTP server you can skip this section and go to: Software install image to flash).

  1. copy tftp: flash:

    Use this command to copy the image from your tftp server to flash.

    Switch# copy tftp://5.28.11.250/cat3k_caa-universalk9.16.09.01.SPA.bin flash:
    Destination filename [cat3k_caa-universalk9.16.09.01.SPA.bin]?
    Accessing tftp://5.28.11.250/cat3k_caa-universalk9.16.09.01.SPA.bin...
    Loading cat3k_caa-universalk9.16.09.01.SPA.bin from 5.28.11.250 (via GigabitEthernet0/0):
    !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    [OK - 465466221 bytes]
     
    465466221 bytes copied in 118.175 secs (3938788 bytes/sec)
    Switch#
    
    
  2. dir flash:

    Use this command to confirm that the image has been successfully copied to flash.

    Switch# dir flash:*.bin
    Directory of flash:/*.bin
     
    Directory of flash:/
     
    7759 -rw- 465466221 Mar 2 2018 04:35:43 +00:00 cat3k_caa-universalk9.16.09.01.SPA.bin
    1621966848 bytes total (598597632 bytes free)
    Switch#
    
    
Step 3

Set boot variable

  1. boot system flash:packages.conf

    Use this command to set the boot variable to flash:packages.conf .

    Switch(config)# boot system flash:packages.conf
    Switch(config)# exit
  2. write memory

    Use this command to save boot settings.

    Switch# write memory
  3. show boot system

    Use this command to verify the boot variable is set to flash:packages.conf .

    The output should display BOOT variable = flash:packages.conf .

    Switch# show boot system
Step 4

Software install image to flash

  1. request platform software package install

    Use this command to install the target image to flash.

    We recommend copying the image to a TFTP server or the flash drive of the active switch. If you point to an image on the flash or USB drive of a member switch (instead of the active), you must specify the exact flash or USB drive - otherwise installation fails. For example, if the image is on the flash drive of member switch 3, the corresponding flash drive is flash-3: Switch# request platform software package install switch all file flash-3:cat3k_caa-universalk9.16.09.01.SPA.bin new auto-copy

    Use the switch all option to upgrade or downgrade all the switches in your stack. Use the auto-copy option to copy the .bin image from flash: to all other switches in your stack

    Note 

    Old files listed in the logs will not be removed from flash.

    The old files listed in the logs should be removed using the software clean command, after reload.

  2. delete flash:

    After you have successfully installed the image, you no longer need the .bin image. Use this command to delete the file from flash of each switch if you copied it to flash.

    Switch# delete flash: cat3k_caa-universalk9.SPA.03.07.02.E.152-3.E2.bin
    Delete filename [cat3k_caa-universalk9.SPA.03.07.02.E.152-3.E2.bin]?
    Delete flash:/ cat3k_caa-universalk9.SPA.03.07.02.E.152-3.E2.bin? [confirm]
    Switch#
    
    
Step 4

Reload

  1. reload

    Use this command in the privileged EXEC mode to reload the switch.

    Switch# reload
    
    
  2. boot flash:

    If the switch is configured with auto boot, then the stack automatically boots up with the new image. If not, you can manually boot flash:packages.conf

    Note 
    When you downgrade to a Cisco IOS XE 3.xE image, the boot loader does not automatically downgrade. It remains updated. The new boot loader can support booting both Cisco IOS XE Release 3.x.xE releases as well as Cisco IOS XE Denali 16.x.x, Cisco IOS XE Everest 16.x.x, and Cisco IOS XE Fuji 16.8.1a releases.
    
    Switch:boot flash:packages.conf
    
    

Downgrading to Cisco IOS XE 3.x.xE in Bundle Mode

    negotiation auto
    end
    Switch#
    Switch# ping vrf Mgmt-vrf ip 5.28.11.250
    Type escape sequence to abort.
    Sending 5, 100-byte ICMP Echos to 5.28.11.250, timeout is 2 seconds:

Licensing

Feature Sets and Right-To-Use Licensing

This section provides information about the licensing packages for feature sets available on Cisco Catalyst 3650 Series Switches

License Levels

The features available on the switch can be classifed into those available with the image-based license levels and those available with add-on license levels.

Image-Based Licenses—The licenses levels that you can order and the corresponding feature sets are:

  • LAN Base—Provides basic Layer 2+ features, including access control lists (ACLs) and quality of service (QoS), up to 255 VLANs, support for routing protocols (Routing Information Protocol (RIP), Open Shortest Path First (OSPF), Policy-Based Routing (PBR), Protocol Independent Multicast Stub Routing (PIM Stub Routing) with IPv4 and IPv6, and routed access with IPv4 and IPv6 (OSPF — up to 1000 routes, Multicast — up to 1000 routes).

  • IP Base—Provides Layer 2+ and basic Layer 3 features (enterprise-class intelligent services). These features include access control lists (ACLs), quality of service (QoS), static routing, Enhanced Interior Gateway Routing Protocol (EIGRP) stub routing, IP multicast routing, RIP, basic IPv6 management, the OSPF Protocol (for routed access only). The license supports up to 4094 VLANs.

  • IP Services—Provides a richer set of enterprise-class intelligent services and full IPv6 support. It includes all IP Base features plus full Layer 3 routing (IP unicast routing and IP multicast routing). The IP Services feature set includes protocols such as the EIGRP, OSPF Protocol. The license supports up to 4094 VLANs.

Add-On Licenses—These require an image-bases license as a prerequisite. The features available with add-on license levels provide Cisco innovations on the switch, as well as on the Cisco Digital Network Architecture Center (Cisco DNA Center). The add-on licenses that you can order are:

  • Digital Networking Architecture (DNA) Essentials—This add-on license can be purchased with LAN Base, IP Base, or IP Services image-based licenses.

    DNA Advantage (Contains DNA Essentials plus more)—This add-on license can be purchased only with IP Base or IP Services image-based licenses.

License Types

The types of licenses available to order by duration are:

  • Permanent—For image-based licenses only. Purchased with a specific feature set with no expiration date.

  • Term—For add-on licenses only. Purchased with a feature set for a specific subscription period of 3, 5, or 7 years. The expiration date displays on Cisco Smart Software Manager (Cisco SSM).

  • Evaluation licenses—Available with image-based and add-on licenses. Pre-installed on the switch and valid for only a 90 day in-use period.

Right-to-use (RTU) Licensing

The Right-to-use (RTU) licensing feature allows you to configure and activate a specific license type and level, and then to manage license usage on your switch.

Added licensing information is also available in the product data sheet, at this URL: https://www.cisco.com/en/US/products/ps13133/products_data_sheets_list.html

Using Smart Accounts

We recommend that you assign a Smart Account when you order devices or licenses. Smart Accounts enable you to manage all of your software licenses for switches, routers, firewalls, access-points or tools from one centralized website.

  • Create Smart Accounts by going to https://software.cisco.comAdministrationRequest Smart Account.

  • Manage your licenses by going to https://software.cisco.comAdministrationManage Smart Account.


    Note

    This is especially relevant to the term licenses that you order, because information about the expiry of term licenses is available only through your Smart Account.

For more information about Smart Accounts and Smart Software Licensing in general, go to the Cisco Smart Software Manager (Cisco SSM) website on cisco.com: http://www.cisco.com/c/en/us/buy/smart-accounts/software-licensing.html

Scaling Guidelines

System Feature

Maximum Limit

Number of HTTP session redirections system-wide

Up to 100 clients per second

Number of HTTPS session redirections system-wide

Up to 20 clients per second

Limitations and Restrictions

  • Cisco TrustSec restrictions:

    • Cisco TrustSec can be configured only on physical interfaces, not on logical interfaces.

    • Cisco TrustSec cannot be configured on a pure bridging domain with the IPSG feature enabled. You must either enable IP routing or disable the IPSG feature in the bridging domain.

  • Centralized Management Mode (CMM)—Starting with Cisco IOS XE Denali 16.3.1, CMM is not supported.

  • Control Plane Policing (CoPP)—The show run command does not display information about classes configured under system-cpp policy, when they are left at default values. Use the show policy-map system-cpp-policy or the show policy-map control-plane commands in privileged EXEC mode instead.

  • DHCP Client—Starting with Cisco IOS XE Denali 16.1.x, a DHCP client that includes option 61 (used by DHCP clients to specify their unique client identifier) in their DHCP discover/offer packet must accept the response message with option 61 from the DHCP server/relay. A client that fails to accept the response message with option 61, is not in compliance with RFC 6842 and requires a firmware upgrade.

  • Flexible NetFlow—You cannot configure NetFlow export using the Ethernet Management port (GigabitEthernet0/0).

  • Flex Links are not supported. We recommend that you use spanning tree protocol (STP) as the alternative.

  • Memory leak—When a logging discriminator is configured and applied to a device, memory leak is seen under heavy syslog or debug output. The rate of the leak is dependent on the quantity of logs produced. In extreme cases, the device may fail. As a workaround, disable the logging discriminator on the device.

  • QoS restrictions

    • When configuring QoS queuing policy, the sum of the queuing buffer should not exceed 100%.

    • For QoS policies, only switched virtual interfaces (SVI) are supported for logical interfaces.

    • QoS policies are not supported for port-channel interfaces, tunnel interfaces, and other logical interfaces.

  • Secure Shell (SSH)

    • Use SSH Version 2. SSH Version 1 is not supported.

    • When the device is running SCP and SSH cryptographic operations, expect high CPU until the SCP read process is completed. SCP supports file transfers between hosts on a network and uses SSH for the transfer.

      Since SCP and SSH operations are currently not supported on the hardware crypto engine, running encryption and decryption process in software causes high CPU. The SCP and SSH processes can show as much as 40 or 50 percent CPU usage, but they do not cause the device to shutdown.

  • Mixed stacking—A switch stack containing a mix of Cisco Catalyst 3650 Series Switches and Cisco Catalyst 3850 Series Switches is not supported.

  • VLAN Restriction—It is advisable to have well-defined segregation while defining data and voice domain during switch configuration and to maintain a data VLAN different from voice VLAN across the switch stack. If the same VLAN is configured for data and voice domains on an interface, the resulting high CPU utilization might affect the device.

  • YANG data modeling limitation—A maximum of 20 simultaneous NETCONF sessions are supported.

Caveats

Caveats describe unexpected behavior in Cisco IOS releases. Caveats listed as open in a prior release are carried forward to the next release as either open or resolved.

Cisco Bug Search Tool

The Cisco Bug Search Tool (BST) allows partners and customers to search for software bugs based on product, release, and keyword, and aggregates key data such as bug details, product, and version. The BST is designed to improve the effectiveness in network risk management and device troubleshooting. The tool has a provision to filter bugs based on credentials to provide external and internal bug views for the search input.
