The documentation set for this product strives to use bias-free language. For the purposes of this documentation set, bias-free is defined as language that does not imply discrimination based on age, disability, gender, racial identity, ethnic identity, sexual orientation, socioeconomic status, and intersectionality. 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.

During switch installation, the IOS configuration files, the SW image, the IOx Application configuration and its running states are saved and persist on the SD Flash: card. The SDFlash: card can be inserted into an IE4000 to bring the switch up to an operational state with the same configuration.
Zero Touch Replacement
During switch replacement scenario, the IOS configuration files, the IOS SW image, the IOx Application configuration and its running states are saved and persist on the SD Flash: card. The SDFlash: card can be inserted into a replacement IE4000 to bring the new switch up to an operational state with the same configuration.
GUI support for IOx
The IE4000 Device Manager supports IOx networking configuration, Application Management, specifically, MTConnect Agent, as well as the capability to launch the Local Manager.
The open source C++ for MTConnect Agent, version 1.3, is packaged to run on the IE4000’s IOx application hosting environment as a container. With the 512 MB RAM reserved for the application execution, the maximum number of MTConnect agents is 10.
Limitations and Restrictions
The IE4000 on-board flash: has only 128MB and the size of the SW tar image is approximately 110MB, the SD flash is the ONLY option to store any application related logs.
The following sections provide information about caveats. You can click the issue number to view more information in the Cisco Bug Search tool (login required):
Using the IOx Local Manager to install applications that take more than 30 min to download or activate will cause the browser session to timeout. However the process of downloading or activating will continue in the background and successfully complete.
Re-login to the LM will eventually reflect that success.
Currently the 30 min timeout is not configurable.
Log back into the IOx Local Manager and confirm the application is in Deployed or Activated state.
The bootloader and IOS version currently used in production IE4000s does not support the Sync Drive feature (loading IOx Image from SD Card).
1. Upgrade to the 15.2(4)EB IOS*.bin file and then reload the system.
2. Install the 15.2(4)EB IOx*tar file and reload the system
IOx host ip address can’t get assigned using a DHCP server.
