Introduction

This section contains information on the Cisco uBR7200 series routers and Early Deployment Releases (ED) for the Cisco uBR7200 series routers.

Cisco Data-over-Cable Products

The Cisco data-over-cable products---the Cisco uBR7223 universal broadband router, the Cisco  uBR7246 universal broadband router, and the Cisco uBR904 cable modem---are compliant with Multimedia Cable Network Partners, Ltd. (MCNS) specifications. MCNS is a consortium of cable television companies whose goal is to create standards for interoperable data over cable systems.

Cisco uBR7223 Universal Broadband Router

The Cisco uBR7223 is a cost-effective, scalable interface between subscriber cable modems and the backbone data network, and is designed specifically for small to medium-sized network installations. The Cisco uBR7223 is based on the Cisco uBR7246.

Cisco uBR7246 Universal Broadband Router

The Cisco uBR7246 is the first of data-over-cable products designed to allow two-way transmission of digital data over hybrid fiber coaxial (HFC) cable. The Cisco uBR7246 supports Internet Protocol (IP) routing with a wide variety of protocols and any combination of Ethernet, Fast Ethernet, High-Speed Serial Interface (HSSI), and Asynchronous Transfer Mode (ATM) media.

Cisco uBR904 Cable Modem

The Cisco uBR904 cable modem is the subscriber unit, a key component within a cable data system. This subscriber unit functions as an interface between the subscriber's personal computer and the cable operator's network within the subscriber's small office or home office.

For more information on Cisco uBR904, refer to the "Platform-Specific Documents" section.

New and Changed Information

The following sections list the new features supported by the Cisco uBR7200 series in Cisco IOS Release 12.0 T.

New Features in Release 12.0(2)T

There are no new features in the Cisco uBR7200 series in Cisco IOS Release 12.0(2)T.

New Features in Release 12.0(1)T

The following new features are supported by the Cisco uBR7200 series in Cisco IOS Release  12.0(1)T. If you are viewing these release notes online, the accompanying feature modules to some features are available by clicking on the feature links.

ATM PVC Trap Support

The ATM PVC Trap Support  feature provides Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP) notification for permanent virtual circuit (PVC) failures, and it provides SNMP access to PVC status tables.

Normally, a management station is not notified when an Asynchronous Transfer Mode (ATM) PVC goes down. The ATM PVC Trap Support feature enables an agent to send the required PVC traps for this notification. It also provides support for these PVC status tables: atmCurrentlyFailingPVclTable and atmInterfaceExtTable.

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, etc. that appears in show or more command output.

Important Notes

This section contains important information about use of your Cisco IOS Release 12.0 T software.

Caveats

This section contains open and resolved caveats for the current Cisco IOS maintenance release only. For information on caveats in all maintenance releases, refer to the refer to the Caveats for Cisco  IOS Release 12.0 T   document that accompanies these release notes, and is located on CCO and the Documentation CD-ROM.

Caveats in Cisco IOS Release12.0 also apply to Release 12.0 T. For information on caveats in the Cisco IOS Release 12.0, refer to the "Caveats" section in the cross-platform Release Notes for Cisco  IOS Release 12.0  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,  or from CCO, select Software & Support: Tools: Bug Toolkit II.

Open Caveats---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 you use 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 are not delivered, and RSVP path and reservation sessions are not established. This is a transient phenomenon that 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

If flow-acceleration is enabled, then disabled, and encryption is subsequently enabled, the router may unexpectedly reload.
Workaround: Avoid enabling and then disabling flow-acceleration.
The IP portion of an incoming call might not terminate correctly if the caller closes the connection. This situation is the result of rare timing conditions. There is no workaround.
A Cisco  1600  router or Cisco  3600  series  router will reload when IPSec is configured over the ISDN link. This condition is caused by the IP route-cache that is enabled by default on all interfaces.
Workaround: turn off fast switching with the no ip route-cache command on the ISDN interfaces.
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; that is, the router runs so slowly 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 (for example, reload command or power cycle) is the only way to clear the problem once it occurs.

Novell IPX, XNS, and Apollo Domain

IPX allows the primary interface and multiple ISL subinterfaces to have the same IPX network number and encapsulation.
Workaround: Do not configure interfaces with the same IPX network number.

Wide-Area Networking

A Cisco router might fail to reply to an Address Resolution Protocol (ARP) incoming on the Bridged Virtual Interface (BVI) when the ARP table is clean. The following error message appears 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 BVI reply.
Removing a dialer interface while a call is up can result in the loss of use of one B channel.
Workaround: A reload of the router will bring the B channel back.

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, RIP does not get enabled on Token Ring interfaces. The output of the sh ip proto command will indicate "Reset 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), and 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.

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:

Documentation CD-ROM

Cisco documentation and additional literature are available in a CD-ROM package, which ships with your product. The Documentation CD-ROM, a member of the Cisco Connection Family, is updated monthly. Therefore, it might be more current than printed documentation. To order additional copies of the Documentation CD-ROM, contact your local sales representative or call customer service. The CD-ROM package is available as a single package or as an annual subscription. You can also access Cisco documentation on the World Wide Web at http://www.cisco.com, http://www-china.cisco.com, or http://www-europe.cisco.com.

If you are reading Cisco product documentation on the World Wide Web, you can submit comments electronically. Click Feedback in the toolbar and select Documentation. After you complete the form, click Submit to send it to Cisco. We appreciate your comments.
