Release Notes for Cisco  AS5800 Universal Access Servers for  Cisco  IOS Release  12.0(2)T

December 14, 1998

These release notes describe new features for the Cisco  AS5800 universal access server that support Cisco  IOS Release 12.0  T, up to and including Release 12.0(2)T. 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  T located on Cisco Connection Online (CCO) and the Documentation CD-ROM.

For a list of software caveats that apply to Release 12.0(2)T, refer to the "Caveats" section.

Contents

These release notes discuss the following topics:

Introduction

The Cisco AS5800 is a high-density, ISDN and modem WAN aggregation system that provides digital and analog call termination. It is intended to be used as a service provider dial point-of-presence (POP) or centralized enterprise dial gateway. The Cisco AS5800 consists of a dial shelf, a router shelf, and a system controller:

The Cisco  5814 dial shelf and host Cisco  7206 router shelf communicate over a a dial shelf interconnect cable (DSIC). This nonblocking interconnect supports 10  Mbps, full-duplex data transfer. Data is converted into packets by the feature cards, transmitted to a hub on the dial shelf controller (DSC) card, and from there sent to the router shelf. Conversely, packets from the router shelf are sent to the DSC card, where they are transmitted over the backplane to the modem and trunk cards.

The AC-input power shelf is an optional component of the Cisco AS5800 Universal Access Server and is used to convert AC-input power into DC-output power for the DC-powered Cisco 5814 dial shelf. The AC-input power shelf contains two AC-input power supplies.

The Cisco AS5800 Universal Access Server accepts AC-input power via a separate, self-contained AC-input power shelf, which converts AC-input power into DC-output for use by the DC-powered dial shelf. The AC-input power shelf is rack-mounted and has a safety cover that shields the electrical connections in the power shelf rear.

The AC-input to DC-output connection supplies -48V DC-output power to the dial shelf power entry modules (PEMs). The PEMs receive the -48 volts and transmit power to the filter module. Power flows through the filter module to the backplane where it is distributed to the dial shelf controller card(s) and feature cards.

The AC-input power shelf includes two 2,000-watt AC-input power supplies that plug into a common power backplane in the AC-input power shelf. A single AC-input power supply is capable of powering a fully configured Cisco 5814 dial shelf. The second power supply provides full redundancy.

For more information on the Cisco AS5800, refer to the Cisco AS5800 Universal Access Server Software Installation and Configuration Guide (Document Number DOC-5800-SICG) or the Cisco AS5800 Universal Access Server Software Installation and Configuration Guide (Document Number DOC-5800-HICG) that shipped with your system.

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 2 lists the current bundled modem code versions.

Microcom version  3.1.30

11.3(3)T and later

MICA modems

The show modem mapping command lists all versions of modem code running on the modem modules, residing in system Flash memory, 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.

The modem code release notes are on CCO and on the Documentation CD-ROM.

1This column indicates the maintenance release in which the feature wasintroduced. For example, (2) means a feature is introduced in 12.0(2)T for Release 12.0 T. If a cell is empty in this colunmn, the feature was included in the initial base release.

New and Changed Information

This section lists the new features supported by the Cisco AS5800 for Cisco IOS in Release 12.0(2)T.

New Features in Release 12.0(2)T

The following new features for the Cisco AS5800 universal access server are available for
Cisco IOS Release 12.0(2)T. Documentation is provided separately for these features.

E1 R1 Signaling for Cisco  AS5800 Access Servers

Enabling R1 Modified Signaling allows a Cisco AS5800 universal access server to talk to central office trunks that also use R1 Modified Signaling. R1 Signaling is an international signaling standard that is common to channelized T1/E1 networks; however, Cisco only has made this feature available in Taiwan. You can configure a channelized T1/E1 interface to support different types of R1 Modified Signaling, which is used in older analog telephone networks.


Note This type of signaling is not the same as ITU R1 signaling; it is R1 signaling modified for Taiwan specifically.

Note In the future, R1 Modified Signaling will be available in Turkey as well as Taiwan.

E1 R2 Signaling for Cisco  AS5800 Access Servers

R2 signaling is an international signaling standard that is common to channelized E1 networks. However, there is no single signaling standard for R2. The ITU-T Q.400-Q.490 recommendation defines R2, but a number of countries and geographic regions implement R2 in entirely different ways. Cisco Systems addresses this challenge by supporting many localized implementations of R2 signaling in its Cisco IOS software.

Cisco System's E1 R2 signaling default is ITU, which supports the following countries: Denmark, Finland, Germany, Russia (ITU variant), Hong Kong (ITU variant), and South Africa (ITU variant). The expression "ITU variant" means there are multiple R2 signaling types in the specified country, but Cisco supports the ITU variant.

Cisco Systems also supports specific local variants of E1 R2 signaling in the following regions, countries, and corporations:


Note Only MICA modems support R2 functionality. Microcom modems do not support R2.

New Features in Release 12.0(1)T

The following new features for the Cisco AS5800 universal access server are available for Cisco  IOS Release 12.0(1)T. Documentation is also provided for these features.

CLI String Search

The Command Line Interface (CLI) String Search feature allows you to search or filter any show or more command's output. This is useful when you need to sort though large amounts of output, or if you want to exclude output that you do not need to see. CLI String Search also allows for searching and filtering at --More-- paging prompts.

With the search function, you can begin unfiltered output at the first line that contains a regular expression you specify. You can specify a maximum of one filter per command to either include or exclude output lines that contain the specified regular expression.

A regular expression is any word, phrase, number, or other type of information that appears in show or more command output.

Easy IP Phase 2-DHCP Server

With the introduction of Easy IP Phase 2, Cisco IOS software also supports Intelligent DHCP Relay functionality. A DHCP Relay Agent is any host that forwards DHCP packets between clients and servers. A DHCP Relay Agent enables the client and server to reside on separate subnets. If the Cisco IOS DHCP server cannot satisfy a DHCP request from its own database, it can forward the DHCP request to one or more secondary DHCP servers defined by the network administrator using standard Cisco IOS ip helper-address functionality.

Level 2 Tunnel Protocol (L2TP)

Layer Two Tunneling Protocol (L2TP) is an emerging Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF) standard that combines the best features of two existing tunneling protocols: Cisco's Layer Two Forwarding (L2F) and Microsoft's Point-to-Point Tunneling Protocol (PPTP). L2TP is an extension to the Point-to-Point Protocol (PPP), which is an important component for Access Virtual Private Networks (VPNs). Access VPNs allow mobile users to connect to their corporate intranets or extranets, thus improving flexibility and reducing costs.

Traditional dial-up networking services only supported registered IP address, which limited the types of applications that could be implemented over Virtual Private Networks (VPNs). L2TP supports multiple protocols and unregistered and privately administered IP addresses over the Internet. This allows the existing access infrastructure, such as the Internet, modems, access servers, and ISDN terminal adaptors (TAs), to be used.

L2TP can be initiated wherever PPTP or L2F is currently deployed and can be operated as a client initiated tunnel, such as PPTP, or a network access server (NAS) initiated tunnel, such as L2F.

Caveats

This section contains open caveats for the current Cisco IOS maintenance release only. For information on caveats in previous maintenance releases, refer to the Caveats for Release 12.0 and 12.0 T, refer to the "caveates" section in the Cross-Platform Release Notes for Cisco IOS Release 12.0(1) document located on CCO and the Documentation CD-ROM . This section contains caveats affecting all maintenance releases.


Note 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 can be found at http://www.cisco.com/support/bugtools.

Open Caveats---Release 12.0(2)T

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

IP Routing Protocols

When using sparse-mode PIM multicast, the multicast tree may take a few minutes to stabilize after the routers are booted. During this period, "PATH" messages sent to multicast addresses will not be delivered, and RSVP path and reservation sessions will not be established. This is a transient phenomenon which occurs only when the routers are being booted. Once the multicast tree stabilizes, paths and reservations are established quickly. This problem does not occur in unicast or dense-mode multicast networks.
Workaround: Use sparse-dense or dense mode PIM multicast, if possible.

Miscellaneous

The Token-Ring Inter-Switch Link (TR-ISL) feature is currently not supported on either the Cisco  3620  router or Cisco  3640  router. There is no workaround.
If flow-acceleration is enabled, then disabled, and encryption is subsequently enabled, the router may unexpectedly reload.
Workaround: Avoid enabling, then disabling flow-acceleration.
The DHCP relay does not work with an unnumbered IP Frame Relay (FR) subinterface due to a problem with BOOTP. BOOTP erroneously encapsulates the packet. Helper addresses are erroneously extracted from "interface serial0" instead of "subinterface serial0.x."
Workaround: Use FR static mapping for the FR circuit, rather than the point-to-point subinterface with IP unnumbered.
Description: Cisco  800  series  routers configured for multilink and STAC compression experience a page leak after prolonged usage. This condition is rare (roughly 1 in 50 units experience it) and may take several days to manifest, depending on the number of calls.
Symptoms: performance degrades until the unit thrashes; i.e., runs so slow that no useful work is accomplished. This is accompanied by continuous and heavy blinking of the "OK" LED.
Workaround: disable multilink or disable STAC compression. A soft or hard reset (eg. reload command or power-cycle) is the only way to clear the problem once it occurs.

Wide-Area Networking

If you shutdown a Dial-on-Demand Routing async interface that has an existing call, an extra call is placed over the interface. There is no workaround.
A Cisco router might fail to reply to an ARP when the ARP table is clean. The following error message will appear appear if "debug arp" is turned on: "00:50:23: IP ARP req filtered src 10.1.1.254 0000.0c32.ed77, dst 10.1.1.1 0000.0000.0000 wrong cable, interface Virtual-Access."
Workaround: To install the ARP entries, initiate traffic from the router and force an incoming ARP reply.

Resolved Caveats---Release 12.0(2)T

All the caveats listed in this section are resolved in release 12.0(2)T. This section describes only severity 1 and 2 caveats.

IP Routing Protocols

On some platforms, for example the Cisco  7200  series  routers, the RIP protocol does not get enabled on token-ring interfaces. The output, "sh ip proto" will indicate "Rest all is OK."
Workaround: Configure router rip on the router before configuring the address on the interface. A shut command followed by a no shut command might also bring up RIP on the interface.

Miscellaneous

RADIUS accounting does not work if you have separate authentication and accounting servers.
An IP client might not be able to ping the Route Switch Module (RSM). This situation might occur during Token-Ring Virtual LAN (TR VLAN) configuration on the RSM. It is most common when the IP client sends an address resolution protocol (ARP) without a routing information field (RIF), then sends an ARP with a RIF. The situation might also occur if the concentrator relay function (CRF) to which the client is connected, is configured for source-route bridging (SRB).
Workaround: Change the CRF mode from SRB to source-route transparent (SRT) bridging.

Novell IPX, XNS, and Apollo Domain

The Internetwork Packet Exchange (IPX) input process might run out of stack, causing a system reload or reduced performance. There is no workaround.

Cisco Connection Online

Cisco Connection Online (CCO) is Cisco Systems' primary, real-time support channel. Maintenance customers and partners can self-register on CCO to obtain additional information and services.

Available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, CCO provides a wealth of standard and value-added services to Cisco's customers and business partners. CCO services include product information, product documentation, software updates, release notes, technical tips, the Bug Navigator, configuration notes, brochures, descriptions of service offerings, and download access to public and authorized files.

CCO serves a wide variety of users through two interfaces that are updated and enhanced simultaneously: a character-based version and a multimedia version that resides on the World Wide Web (WWW). The character-based CCO supports Zmodem, Kermit, Xmodem, FTP, and Internet e-mail, and it is excellent for quick access to information over lower bandwidths. The WWW version of CCO provides richly formatted documents with photographs, figures, graphics, and video, as well as hyperlinks to related information.

You can access CCO in the following ways:
