Release Notes for Cisco AS5300 for Cisco  IOS Release  12.0

Release Notes for Cisco AS5300 for Cisco  IOS Release  12.0

December 7, 1998

These release notes describe new features for the Cisco  AS5300 universal access server that are supported in Cisco  IOS Release 12.0, up to and including 12.0(2). These release notes are updated with each maintenance release of the Cisco  IOS software, which is typically every 6 weeks.

Use these release notes in conjunction with the cross-platform Release Notes for Cisco IOS Release  12.0 located on Cisco Connection Online (CCO) and the Documentation CD-ROM.

For a list of software caveats that apply to Release 12.0(2), refer to the "Caveats" section later in this document. For a list of software caveats that apply to all maintenance releases, refer to the "Caveats" section in the cross-platform Release Notes for Cisco IOS Release 12.0 located on CCO and the Documentation CD-ROM.

Contents

These release notes discuss the following topics:

Introduction

The Cisco AS5300 universal access server is a versatile data communications platform that provides the functions of an access server, router, and digital modems in a single modular chassis. The access server is intended for Internet service providers (ISPs), telecommunications carriers, and other service providers that offer managed Internet connections, as well as medium to large sites that provide both digital and analog access to users on an enterprise network. By terminating both analog and digital calls on the same chassis simultaneously, the access server provides a clear, simple, and easy migration path from today's analog dial access services to tomorrow's digital dial access services.

System Requirements

This section describes the system requirements for Release 12.0(2) and includes the following sections:

Memory Requirements

Table 1 describes the memory requirements for the Cisco  AS5300 images supported by Cisco  IOS  Release 12.0(2). Flash memory is optional for the Cisco  AS5300 images.

Determining Your Cisco IOS Software Release

To determine the version of Cisco IOS software currently running on your access server, log on to the AS5300 and enter the show version EXEC command:

router> show version

An output begins similar to the following. The Cisco IOS version appears in the second line.

Cisco Internetwork Operating System Software 
IOS (tm) 5300 Software (C5300-JS-M), Version 12.0.......

The output includes more information including processor revision numbers, memory amounts, hardware IDs, and partition information. For information on upgrading to a new software release, see the "Cisco Connection Online" section.

Updating to a New Release

For information on updating to a new software release, refer to the Cisco IOS Software Release Upgrade Paths and Packaging Simplification  product bulletin located on CCO. On CCO, follow this path: Products and Ordering: More Information: Product Bulletins. Scroll to Software. Under Cisco IOS 12.0, click the Upgrade Paths bulletin.

Modem Code

Cisco IOS Release 12.0 and later includes bundled modem code, which is the firmware or portware that runs on the Microcom 12-port and MICA 6-port modem cards. Modem code is bundled with the Cisco IOS software image to eliminate the need to store separate modem code. When the access server starts, the Cisco IOS software unpacks the modem code and loads the proper code on the modem cards. Table 3 lists bundled modem code versions.

Microcom version  3.3.20

12.0 and 12.0T and higher

MICA modems

MICA portware version  2.3.1.0

12.0 and 12.0T and higher

The show modem mapping command lists all versions of modem code running on the modem modules, residing in system Flash, and bundled with Cisco IOS software. Enter this command to help you decide if you need to update your modem code files.


Note The Cisco factory could have installed a later version of modem code than the one bundled with the Cisco IOS software. When this happens, the factory installs modem code in Flash memory and maps that code to the modems. Unless you fully understand how Cisco IOS software uses modem code, it is important to keep the factory configuration.

New and Changed Information

This section lists some of the features available for the AS5300 in the Cisco IOS Release 12.0 software. For more information about these features, refer to the cross-platform Release Notes for Cisco IOS Release 12.0, or to the New Feature Documentation link on the Cisco IOS 12.0 Release site located on Cisco Connection Online (CCO) and the Documentation CD-ROM.

Caveats

This section lists severity 1 and 2 caveats for Cisco IOS Release 12.0. Caveats describe unexpected behavior or defects in Cisco IOS software releases. Severity 1 caveats are the most serious caveats; severity 2 caveats are less serious.

If you have an account with CCO, you can use Bug Navigator II to find caveats of any severity for any release. Bug Navigator  II is at http://www.cisco.com/support/bugtools, or from CCO, select Software & Support: Technical Tools: Bug Toolkit II.

Open Caveats---Release 12.0(2)

This section describes possibly unexpected behavior by Release 12.0(2). This document describes only severity 1 and 2 caveats.

Basic System Services

When hardware compression is enabled, packets are normally fastswitched. If the user turns off fastswitching then turns it back on, fastswitching remains disabled. The workaround is to reconfigure compression (ex, "no comp/comp stac").
VIP cards do not have an accurate sense of time, and therefore netflow exports, etcetera are not synchronized.
ip trigger authentication does not work with mlppp; it only works with a single channel. There is no workaround other than not to use mlppp.
Currently, Generic Traffic-shaping and Frame-relay traffic-shaping is not supported with turbo (Optimum/CEF) switching modes, and so we need to disable these turbo switching modes to make traffic-shaping work over the interface. This fix will allow turbo switching modes to co-exist with Traffic-shaping.
The "disconnect-cause" and "disconnect-cause-ext" attributes are missing in the TACAS+ network accounting stop record. There is no workaround.
cannot enter the following configuration command:
aaa authorization exec tacacs
There is no workaround.

DECnet

Under certain conditions, DECnet does not send triggered routing updates after an adjacency comes up. If (periodic) routing updates are sent out frequently (default frequency being 40 seconds), this is not an issue, since an update gets sent out in a short time and routes are learned. However, if the routing update timer has been configured to be a large value, then routes may not get learned for a long time.
The workaround is to configure a smaller value for the routing update timer.

IBM Connectivity

When using privilege level commands to allow configuration of a command, the user is unable to configure specific privilege levels for the keywords of the channel interface sub-command commands. There is no workaround.

Interfaces and Bridging

When encapsulation is changed on a PRI interface, B-channel interfaces are set in the Up state. This causes the first call to the B-channel to fail, but subsequent calls to that channel work after the first failure. Workaround: When changing encapsulation on a PRI interface, you must first use the shutdown command on the interface before configuring the new encapsulation.
Traffic shaping feature might cause router to crash.
Removing ATM Deluxe card from a 7200 router and inserting ATM Lite in the same slot might cause the router to crash.
RSP router crashes when configuring encaps smds after viper alignment detection.
With high load and with compression turned on, the Ct1 PA interface may occasionally get `output stuck' which causes a system restart.

IP Routing Protocols

NAT will only translate the first address entry in an NBNS group name response message. Other group name address entries will not get translated, and therefore the NetBios client will ONLY be able to reach the first group address host since it would be using an Inside Local address from the outside for the other members of the NBNS group name.

Miscellaneous

Encrypted TCP sessions are pausing when passing over an MPP bundle as soon as two or more members in the bundle become active. This behavior can ONLY be observed when building a TCP session between hosts on the LAN interface of 2 routers connected via encrypted MPP. Current workaround is to switch off fast-switching on the LANs.
On a 5800 where the tty lines are configured with autoselect ppp and the asynchronous interfaces are configured with async mode interactive, PPP calls to the asynchronous interfaces of the 5800 can fail occasionally.
The router will not handle TCP flows according to qos weight defined after a reload or wr mem/conf mem.
When the traffic between the PA-12E/2FE port adapter and the CPU is high and the PCI bus is overloaded, the DEC21140 can get underrun/overrun errors due to PCI congestion and the error reported in this DDTS is displayed. The traffic is effected momentarily and eventually restored.
If a loopback interface is configured, then later unconfigured, and afterwards an Interface Processor is On-Line Inserted or Removed (OIR'd), the following symptoms may occur:
1) A syslog message is logged to indicate that the previously unconfigured loopback interface is up. However, the loopback interface is not actually up. This is simply an incorrect console message. There is no workaround needed.
2) show ip route connected lists the previously unconfigured loopback. There is a connected route for an interface that should not exist. This symptom has been seen only once and cannot be reproduced. The only known workaround for this symptom is to reload the router.
When doing an encrypted kerberized Telnet to a router, the initial setup goes fine, but garbage output results when decryption of packets from the router occurs on the client side. No known workaround.
A clear vpdn tunnel for a tunnel using L2F Protocol sends individual close packets for all L2F sessions (Mids), rather than a single close packet for the tunnel itself. The result is congestion on the WAN interfaces on the requesting peer. Simultaneously, the receiving peer is not able to keep up with the flood of multiple L2F close packets, resulting in dropped packets and interface throttles. Another side-effect is that the remaining Mids take a long time idle out and eventually close.
Unencrypted traffic can suffer packet payload corruption when flowing through the same router as encrypted traffic. Turning off fast-switching seems to solve the problem.

Wide-Area Networking

Router configuration autoinstall over Frame Relay link would fail with v12.0(0.7) and on. Autoinstall is to load router configuration file from a TFTP server at boot time when NVRAM has no configuration and user elects not to enter configuration from the console but to proceed with autoinstall. When the autoinstall accessing media to the TFTP server is Frame Relay, the function would fail. Older versions, like 11.3, 11.3T, etc. do not have this problem.

Resolved Caveats---Release 12.0(2)

Unless otherwise noted, these caveats apply to all 12.0 releases up to and including Release 12.0(2). The open caveats for Release 12.0(2) precede this section.

Basic System Services

Cisco 1600 is not able to receive multicast packets for different groups at wire speed. This causes the 1600 ethernet driver to miss packets.
Workaround: Static multicast groups were configured.

Miscellaneous

When you configure Bisync (encapsulation bstun) with the ASCII character set (bsc char-set ascii) on the first port of a serial WIC (1T, 2T, or 2A/S) in WIC slot 0 of a Cisco 2600 series router, only the first character of each frame is received, and the BSTUN tunnel is not established. This only affects Bisync mode when it is configured with the ASCII character set. Other encapsulations are not affected, and using the EBCDIC character set with Bisync works correctly.
For the first serial port in WIC slot 0, the parity detection is not configured correctly for Bisync in ASCII mode. The first character of each frame generates a parity error that causes the receiver to discard the frame after the first character received.
Workaround: Use a different serial port: either the second serial port (port 1) on a 2T or 2A/S WIC in WIC slot 0 or any serial port in WIC slot 1. If you have only one serial WIC, moving it from WIC slot 0 to WIC slot 1 fixes this problem.

Documentation Modules

Each module in the Cisco IOS documentation set consists of two books: a configuration guide and a corresponding command reference. Chapters in a configuration guide describe protocols, configuration tasks, and Cisco IOS software functionality and contain comprehensive configuration examples. Chapters in a command reference provide complete command syntax information. Each configuration guide can be used in conjunction with its corresponding command reference.

Master Indexes

Two master indexes provide indexing information for the Cisco IOS software documentation set: an index for the configuration guides and an index for the command references. In addition, individual books contain a book-specific index.
