Operation changes
Operation changes in 12900E-CMW710-R2606
First release. The default state of an interface is down when no configuration file exists.
Restrictions and cautions
1.
This software version does not support MDCs.
2.
In an IRF fabric with plenty of configurations, it takes a long time (maybe more than 10 minutes)
to collect diagnosis information.
3.
When you assign Ethernet interfaces on different cards to an aggregation group and configure
BFD on the corresponding aggregate interface, Hewlett Packard Enterprise recommends that
you set the single-hop detection time multiplier to a value greater than the number of member
ports.
4.
Layer 3 Ethernet interfaces, Layer 3 Ethernet subinterfaces, Layer 3 aggregate interfaces, and
Layer 3 aggregate subinterfaces do not support strict URPF.
5.
For an HPE 12916E switch, the IRF member ID must be 1 or 5. For an HPE 12908E switch, the
IRF member ID must be 1 or 3. For an HPE 12904E switch, the IRF member ID must be 1 or 2.
6.
Outbound mirroring and sFlow cannot work together on an interface.
7.
When you use the LSXM1TGS48C2HB1LPU on the switch, first install the switching fabric
modules in the last three switching fabric module slots (from left to right.)
8.
ECMP is supported by the first 2048 VXLAN tunnels that are created by using the interface
tunnel tunnel-number mode vxlan command.
9.
When you use VXLAN in conjunction with VLAN mapping, TRILL, and MPLS, follow these
restrictions:

The rewrite inbound tag or rewrite outbound tag command cannot be used together
with VLAN mapping, TRILL, or MPLS.

The following settings are mutually exclusive on a chip:

Ethernet service instance that matches an outer or inner VLAN ID range.

VLAN mapping.
To view the mappings between interfaces and chips, use the debug port mapping
command in probe view.

The following settings are mutually exclusive on an interface:

Ethernet service instance that matches inconsecutive outer or inner VLAN IDs.

VLAN mapping.

Open problems and workarounds
201606140066

Symptom: An interface's incoming traffic amount in the output from the display qos policy
interface command is smaller than the actual incoming traffic amount.

Condition: This symptom might occur if the following operations are performed:
a. Configure the accounting command for a traffic behavior of a QoS policy.
b. Apply the QoS policy to the inbound direction of an interface.
c. Execute the display qos policy interface command for the interface.

.Workaround: None.
201606130131

Symptom: The switch is a VXLAN IP gateway. On a VSI interface, PBR can match VXLAN
packets, but cannot match traffic of ACs.

Condition: This symptom might occur if the switch is a VXLAN IP gateway, and PBR is
configured on a VSI interface.

Workaround: None.
201606120312

Symptom: On a multimember IRF fabric, BFD packets are sent at an incorrect rate to detect
status of VXLAN tunnels.

Condition: This symptom might occur if BFD is configured for VXLAN tunnel status detection on
a multimember IRF fabric.

Workaround: None.
201606020541

Symptom: After an IRF fabric splits, non-IRF physical interfaces cannot forward traffic when
certain settings exist on the interfaces.

Condition: This symptom might occur if the following settings are configured on non-IRF
physical interfaces:


Port priority of 5.

Rate limit.

Queue scheduling profile.
Workaround: None.
201605270455

Symptom: BGP NSR does not take effect when an IRF master/subordinate switchover or MPU
switchover occurs on an IRF fabric. As a result, BGP EVPN routes are deleted.

Condition: This symptom might occur if BGP NSR is enabled on a multimember IRF fabric
configured with EVPN.

Workaround: None.
201606130481

Symptom: Traffic aging is not performed based on the IPv6 NetStream active flow aging timer.

Condition: This symptom might occur if IPv6 NetStream active flow aging timer is configured.

Workaround: None.
6
201606010213

Symptom: The default DSCP value of OpenFlow packets is incorrect.

Condition: This symptom might occur if OpenFlow is enabled.

Workaround: None.


BootWare image—A .bin file that contains a basic segment and an extended segment. The
basic segment is the minimum code that bootstraps the system. The extended segment
enables hardware initialization and provides system management menus. You can use these
menus to load software and the startup configuration file or manage files when the device
cannot start up correctly.

Comware image—Includes the following image subcategories:

Boot image—A .bin file that contains the Linux operating system kernel. It provides process
management, memory management, and file system management.

System image—A .bin file that contains the minimum feature modules required for device
operation and some basic features, including device management, interface management,
configuration management, and routing. To have advanced features, you must purchase
feature packages.

Feature package—Includes a set of advanced software features. Users purchase feature
packages as needed.

Patch packages—Irregularly released packages for fixing bugs without rebooting the
device. A patch package does not add new features or functions.
Comware software images that have been loaded are called "current software images."
Comware images specified to load at the next startup are called "startup software images."
BootWare image, boot image, and system image are required for the system to work. These images
are released as a whole in one .ipe file. The system automatically decompresses the file, loads the
boot and system images and sets them as startup software images.
Software file naming conventions
Software image file names use the chassis-comware version-image type-release format, for
example, 12900E-CMW710-SYSTEM-R2606.bin and 12900E-CMW710-BOOT-R2606.bin. This
document uses boot.bin and system.bin as boot and system image file names.
Upgrade methods
You can use one of the following methods to upgrade software:

Remarks

This method is disruptive. If you are upgrading MPUs,
you must reboot the switch to complete the upgrade. If
you are upgrading the BootWare image of a card (an
LPU or switching fabric module), you must reboot the
card.

Use this method when the device cannot start up
correctly.
NOTE:
 Generally, there is no need to upgrade the BootWare program independently. The device uses
the shipped BootWare program. The examples in this document use BootWare 1.19. The output
is for illustration only.
 Use the same method to upgrade software for all MPUs to ensure software version consistency
across MPUs.
 Make sure the Comware software and BootWare are compatible. For the compatibility between
the Comware software and BootWare, see the hardware and software compatibility matrix in the
Release Notes.
 The command outputs in this document are for reference only.
Upgrade restrictions and guidelines
On the 12900E switch, follow these restrictions and guidelines when you use the management ports
on the MPU:

If multiple management ports are connected to one remote switch, you must assign their peer
ports to different VLANs on the remote switch. Login or file transfer will fail if the peer ports are
in the same VLAN.

To transfer files from the BootWare menu through TFTP or FTP, you can use only the
management port M0/0/3. This interface is the forth management port on the MPU. This port is
marked with a number of 3 on the card panel.
Upgrading from the CLI
This section describes the upgrade procedures for standalone 12900E switches and 12900E IRF
fabrics. For more information about IRF, see HPE FlexFabric 12900E Switch Series IRF
Configuration Guide.

The output shows that the switch has two MPUs, an active MPU in slot 17 and a standby MPU
in slot 16. You must upgrade software for the two MPUs.
NOTE:
You only need to upgrade the active MPU if the device has no standby MPU.
3.
Verify that the MPUs have enough free storage space for the upgrade files:

If the free storage space is not sufficient, delete unused files:
# On the active MPU:
<Sysname> delete /unreserved flash:/12900E-CMW710-R2606.ipe
The contents cannot be restored!!! Delete flash:/12900E-CMW710-R2606.ipe?[Y/N]:y
Deleting a file permanently will take a long time. Please wait...
..................................................
Deleting file flash:/12900E-CMW710-R2606.ipe...Done.
# On the standby MPU:
<Sysname> delete /unreserved slot16#flash:/12900E-CMW710-R2606.ipe
The contents cannot be restored!!! Delete slot16#flash:/
12900-CMW710-R2606.ipe?[Y/N]:y
Deleting a file permanently will take a long time. Please wait...
..................................................
Deleting file slot16#flash:/12900-CMW710-R2606.ipe...Done.
NOTE:
 The delete /unreserved file-url command deletes a file permanently, and the action cannot
be undone.
 The delete file-url command moves a file to the recycle bin and the file still occupies storage
space. To delete the file from the recycle bin, execute the reset recycle-bin command in the
original directory of the file.
Downloading upgrade files to the flashes of MPUs
You can use FTP or TFTP to download files.
NOTE:
The switch does not come with FTP or TFTP software. Prepare the software yourself.
This example uses FTP to download files from an FTP server and assumes that the FTP client and
server can reach each other.
To download the software file (for example, newest.ipe) from the FTP server:
1.
Run the FTP server program on the PC at 10.10.110.1, and set the username, password, and
the file directory where the software file is stored.
2.
Download the file to the active MPU:
# Log in to the PC with FTP.
<Sysname> ftp 192.168.0.23
Connected to 192.168.0.23 (192.168.0.23).

NOTE:
 The delete /unreserved file-url command deletes a file permanently and the action cannot
be undone.
 The delete file-url command moves a file to the recycle bin and the file still occupies storage
space. To delete the file from the recycle bin, execute the reset recycle-bin command in the
original directory of the file.
Downloading upgrade files to the flashes of MPUs
You can use FTP or TFTP to download files.
NOTE:
The switch does not come with FTP or TFTP software. Prepare the software yourself.
This example uses FTP to download files from an FTP server and assumes that the FTP client and
server can reach each other.
To download the software file (for example, newest.ipe) from the FTP server:
1.
Run the FTP server program on the PC at 10.10.110.1, and set the username, password, and
the file directory where the software file is stored.
2.
Download the file to the global active MPU:
# Log in to the PC with FTP.
<Sysname> ftp 192.168.0.23

Modifying serial port parameters
When you use the console port to access the system, make sure the port parameters are consistent
with the serial port settings on the configuration terminal, including the baud rate, data bits, parity
check, stop bits, flow control, and emulation. If the settings are inconsistent, communication will fail.
You can change the baud rate from the BootWare menus. Hewlett Packard Enterprise recommends
that you change the default baud rate (9600 bps) to a higher baud rate for faster file transfer before
downloading a Comware image file with XMODEM through the console port.
To change the baud rate of the console port:
1.
Enter 1 in the BASIC-BOOTWARE menu.

Disabling password recovery capability
Password recovery capability controls console user access to the device configuration and SDRAM
from BootWare menus.
If password recovery capability is enabled, console users can do the following:

If console users forget their user privilege level passwords, they can skip the current
configuration file to configure new passwords.

If console users forget their console login passwords, they can skip login authentication or the
current configuration file to configure new passwords.
If password recovery capability is disabled, console users must restore the factory-default
configuration before they can configure new passwords. Restoring the factory-default configuration
deletes the next-startup configuration files.
To enhance system security, disable password recovery capability.

Restoring the factory-default configuration
CAUTION:
Performing this task can cause all next-startup configuration files to be permanently deleted.
To restore the factory-default configuration from the EXTENDED-BOOTWARE menu, make sure
password recovery capability is disabled. If the capability is enabled, you cannot perform the task.
Disabling password recovery capability can protect your system from unauthorized console access
to configuration. However, if you have only console access to the system but you have lost the
console login password, you can only access the system after restoring the factory-default
configuration.
To enable the system to start up with the factory-default configuration instead of a next-startup
configuration file:
1.
Enter 5 in the EXTENDED-BOOTWARE menu.
Enter your choice(0-9):5
2.
Follow the system instruction to complete the task.

If password recovery capability is enabled, first disable the capability from the CLI, and then
reboot the device to access the EXTENDED-BOOTWARE menu.
Password recovery capability is enabled. To perform this operation, first
disable the password recovery capability using the undo password-recovery
enable command in CLI.

If password recovery capability is disabled, enter Y at the prompt to complete the task.
Because the password recovery capability is disabled, this operation can
cause the configuration files to be deleted, and the system will start up
with factory defaults. Are you sure to continue?[Y/N]Y
Setting...Done.
Starting up without loading the configuration file
You can perform this task only if password recovery capability is enabled.
To ignore all configuration files and start up with the factory-default configuration, enter 6 in the
