Overview
New Features and Functionality in ExtremeXOS 12.6.1
This section lists the new features and functionality in ExtremeXOS 12.6.1:
●
ARP Filtering—This feature adds two new access list match criteria:
-
arp-sender-address <prefix>
-
arp-target-address <prefix>
Available on BlackDiamond 8800 series switches and Summit family switches only.
●
●
Customer Edge Port —This feature, also known as Selective Q-in-Q, adds the ability for a VMAN
customer-facing port to associate only frames containing configured Customer VLAN IDs (CVIDs)
with a VMAN. In addition, it allows frames from the same customer-facing port but containing
different CVIDs to be associated with different VMANs. Previously, frames from a given VMAN
customer-facing port could be associated to only one VMAN.
-
IEEE 802.1ad Customer Edge Port (also known as 802.1ad C-tagged service interface and MEF
UNI Type 1.2) data plane on Summit and BlackDiamond 8000 series switches.
-
1-to-1 and N-to-1 CVID-to-VMAN mappings.
-
Multiple CVID-to-VMAN mappings to different VMANs per customer facing port.
-
CVID translation (for example, translation between CVID X on the customer-facing port and
CVID Y in the VMAN encapsulation).
-
Configuration via CLI, not ACL policy file.
-
Limited coexistence of Customer Edge Port interfaces with tagged VLAN interfaces, an untagged
VMAN interface, and tagged VMAN interfaces on the same port.
Data Center Solutions Updates—This feature now includes the following changes:
-
Repository server configuration updates that affect configuration and support password
authentication.
-
New support for DCBX—The Data Center Bridging eXchange (DCBX) protocol is used by Data
Center Bridging (DCB) devices to exchange DCB configuration information with directly
connected peers. In an ExtremeXOS enabled switch, the switch uses DCBX to advertise its DCB
configuration to end stations. The end stations can then configure themselves to use the switch
DCB services. If the peers do not support a common configuration for one or more features, the
switch generates messages to alert network management.
The DCBX protocol advertises the following types of information:
-
DCBX version information, so that the peers can negotiate a common version to use.
-
Enhanced Transmission Selection (ETS) information for QoS parameters such as bandwidth
allocation per traffic class (802.1p COS), priority for each traffic class, and the algorithm used
for servicing traffic classes.
-
Priority-based Flow Control (PFC) information for managing flow control between peers.
-
Application priority information for prioritizing traffic for special applications that do not map
directly to an established traffic class.
●
Display Time Stamp for Last Port Up/Down Transition—The show port info detail command now
displays the date and time of the last physical port link state transition (Up or Down).
●
Display VLAN Information by Tag—This feature adds the keyword tag as a qualifier to the following
CLI VLAN, vMAN, and port-related show commands. The tag option allows you to specify the
interfaces to be displayed by entering the 802.1Q tag value. The display output format remains
unchanged.
-
show ports
-
show ports anomaly

Duplicate IP Address Detection (DAD) and Prevention—This feature detects and prevents duplicate IP
addresses during VLAN initialization. If the switch detects another device that is using the IP
address assigned to the VLAN, the switch disables the IP address for the VLAN and generates an
EMS log message. This action can occur only during initialization of the VLAN. If the switch later
detects a duplicate IP address, the duplicate IP address on the switch is not disabled.
NOTE
IP DAD CLI commands are only supported on the Summit family and BlackDiamond 8800 series switches.
For IPv4 networks, this feature is disabled by default to match the behavior of earlier versions of the
ExtremeXOS software. You can use the configure ip dad [off | on | {on} attempts
<max_solicitations>] {{vr} <vr_name> | vr all} command to configure this feature, and you
can use the run ip dad [{vlan} <vlan_name> | {{vr} <vr_name>} <ipaddress>] command
to initiate a DAD check after initialization. To view the status of the DAD feature, use the show ip
dad {[{{vr} <vr_name> {<ip_address>} | vr all | {vlan} <vlan_name>} command. To
clear the DAD feature counters, use the clear ip dad {{vr} <vr_name> {<ipaddress>} | vr
all | {vlan} <vlan_name>} {counters} command.
For IPv6 networks, this feature is enabled by default to match the behavior of earlier versions of the
ExtremeXOS software, which supported the DAD feature, but did not provide commands to manage
this feature. You can use the configure ipv6 dad [off | on | {on} attempts
<max_solicitations>] {{vr} <vr_name> | vr all} command to configure this feature, and you
can use the run ipv6 dad [{vlan} <vlan_name> | {{vr} <vr_name>} <ipaddress>]
command to initiate a DAD check after initialization. To view the status of the DAD feature, use the
show ipv6 dad {[{{vr} <vr_name> {<ip_address>} | vr all | {vlan} <vlan_name>}
{tentative | valid | duplicate} | {{vr} <vr_name>} <ipaddress>]} command. To clear
the DAD feature counters, use the clear ipv6 dad {{vr} <vr_name> {<ipaddress>} | vr all
| {vlan} <vlan_name>} {counters} command.

Overview
●
Filtering the Output of “show” Commands—This feature is a restricted version of a UNIX/Linux feature
that uses a “pipe” character to direct the output of one command to be used as input for the next
command. It provides support for “piping” show command output to the display filter using the
vertical bar (|) operator. In the following command, it is the first vertical bar. The display filter
displays the output based on the specified filter keyword option and the text pattern entered. By
selecting different filter options you can include or exclude all output that matches the pattern. You
can also exclude all output until a line matches the pattern and then include all output beginning
with that line.
In ExtremeXOS software, the resulting command is as follows:
show <specific show command syntax> | {include | exclude | begin} <regexp>
The following describes the command syntax:
show <specific show command syntax>
State the command. For example: show ports.(This is
followed by the vertical bar (|) when used as the pipe
character.)
include
Display the lines that match the regular expression.
exclude
Do not display the lines that match the regular expression.
begin
Display all the lines starting with the first line that matches
the regular expression.
regexp
The regular expression to match.
•
Regular expressions are case sensitive.
•
It is common to specify your regular expression in quotes
For example, using the following command:
show ports 2:1-2 information detail | include "(Port|Flow Control)"
The output would resemble the following:
Port: 2:1
Flow Control:
Rx-Pause: Enabled
Priority Flow Control: Disabled
Port: 2:2
Flow Control:
Rx-Pause: Enabled
Priority Flow Control: Disabled
●
Tx-Pause: Disabled
Tx-Pause: Disabled
Identity Management Updates—This feature now includes the following changes:
-
Added support to detect FDB entries as identities (unknown identities)
-
Changed default behavior to manage entries based on the MAC address, instead of by IP address
-
Added support to age-out Kerberos users during periods of inactivity
-
Added support for Kerberos to force age-out
●
LLDP Neighbor Refresh Command—A new CLI command, clear lldp neighbor [all | port
<port>], allows a user to flush all neighbor information, or flush neighbor information on a port
basis. Prior to this command, LLDP neighbor entries could only be cleared by aging out.
●
STP Description—This feature provides support for adding an STP domain description. An optional
description keyword is now included in the create stpd and configure stpd commands. The STP
domain description is shown in the output of the show command.
●
Supported Hardware—The supported hardware section previously included in the ExtremeXOS
release notes is now a standalone document The the *.xos file names have also been removed.

Overview
●
Tunable DWDM, 50-GHz—ExtremeXOS software now supports tunable dense wavelength division
multiplexing (TDWDM) XFP modules with 50-GHz channel spacing. The feature is supported on
BlackDiamond 8800 switches with 10G8Xc, 10G4Xc, 10G4Xa or 8900-10G8Xxl modules and S-10G1Xc
option cards, BlackDiamond 20800 series switches with XM-8XB or HM-2X24GA modules, and
Summit X480 switches with VIM2-10G4X modules.
●
VLAN Description—A VLAN description is a string of up to 64 characters that you can configure to
describe the VLAN. The keyword description is now included in the create and configure
commands. For example, create vlan <vlan_name> {description <vlan-description>} {vr
<name>} and configure vlan <vlan_name> {description <vlan_description>}. The
description length is 64 characters; the VLAN description is displayed in the output of the show
command.
●
XNV™—The Extreme Network Virtualization (XNV) feature, which is also known as Virtual Machine
(VM) tracking, enables the ExtremeXOS software to support VM port movement, port configuration,
and inventory on network switches. VM movement and operation on one or more VM servers is
managed by a VM Manager (VMM) application. The XNV feature enables a network switch to
respond to VM movement and report VM activity to network management software.

Use the check firmware version command to verify that all components on the BlackDiamond 20800
series switches (I/O modules, fans, and so on) are running the latest version of ExtremeXOS firmware. If the
command output shows that one or more component is not running the latest firmware, use the install
firmware command to update all down level components. Be sure to run the show slot, show fans, show
power, and show fabric commands to verify that all components are installed and operational before attempting
to upgrade or downgrade the switch firmware.

Overview
Upgrading to ExtremeXOS
See “Software Upgrade and Boot Options” in the ExtremeXOS Concepts Guide for instructions on
upgrading ExtremeXOS software. Following are miscellaneous hitless upgrade notes:
●
Beginning with ExtremeXOS 12.1, an ExtremeXOS core image (.xos file) must be downloaded and
installed on the alternate (non-active) partition. If you try to download to an active partition, the
error message "Error: Image can only be installed to the non-active partition." is displayed. An
ExtremeXOS modular software package (.xmod file) can still be downloaded and installed on either
the active or alternate partition.
●
For the BlackDiamond 8800 series of switches, a hitless upgrade to ExtremeXOS 12.5.2 from an
earlier release is not supported and should not be attempted. Use the normal software upgrade
process for these switches.
●
Hitless upgrade from ExtremeXOS 12.0 and earlier to ExtremeXOS 12.1 and later is not supported on
the BlackDiamond 12800 switch.
Downloading Supported MIBs
The Extreme Networks MIBs are located on the eSupport website under Download Software Updates,
located at:

support CLI commands for L3 functionality.
●
Summit X150 and X350 series switches do not support stacking; all CLI commands for stacking are
not supported on this platform.
●
Summit X150 and X350 series switches do not support IP forwarding; however, CLI commands that
configure IP addresses function in order to access the management functionality of the switch are
supported.

Limits
CHAPTER
This chapter summarizes the supported limits in ExtremeXOS 12.6.2.
Supported Limits
Table 37 summarizes tested metrics for a variety of features, as measured in a per-system basis unless
otherwise noted. These limits may change but represent the current status. The contents of this table
supersede any values mentioned in the ExtremeXOS Concepts Guide.
NOTE
The term “BlackDiamond 8000 e-series” refers to all BlackDiamond 8500 e-series and 8800 e-series
modules.The term “BlackDiamond 8000 series” refers to all BlackDiamond 8500, 8800, and 8900 series modules.
The scaling and performance information shown in Table 37 is provided for the purpose of assisting
with network design. It is recommended that network architects and administrators design and manage
networks with an appropriate level of network scaling “head room.” The scaling and performance
figures provided have been verified using specific network topologies using limited switch
configurations. There is no guarantee that the scaling and performance figures shown are applicable to
all network topologies and switch configurations and are provided as a realistic estimation only. If you
experience scaling and performance characteristics that you feel are sufficiently below what has been
documented, contact Extreme Networks technical support for additional assistance.
The route limits shown in Table 37 for IPv4 and IPv6 routing protocols are software limits only. The
actual hardware limits may be lower than the software limits, based on platform. The hardware limits
for specific platforms are specified as "IPv4/IPv6 routes (LPM entries in hardware)" in the following
table.
On certain BlackDiamond 8000 and Summit products, it is not advised to have greater than 25,000 total
IP routes from all routing protocols. This includes a BlackDiamond 8000 series switch with an
8500-MSM24, MSM-G8X or MSM-48, and Summit X250e, X450a, X450e, X650 or X670 switches, either in
a SummitStack or standalone. Adverse effects can occur with routing tables larger than this, especially
when a single network event or CLI command affects a significant number of routes. For example, just
after such a network event, the added system load will cause a “save configuration” command to time
out.

default routes are not installed in the routing table.
PD4-1549189647
In ISIS, when route summarization is configured with authentication, the authentication is
not effective and all the routes are advertised, regardless of the type of authentication
configured.
PD4-1535268629
ISIS tx-only authentication also authenticates received LSPs. The received routes are not
installed in the ISIS LSDB based on the authentication policy.
PD4-1620486143
When DHCP lease time is set to the maximum/infinity (4294967295), the DHCP client
continuously sends renewal requests.
PD3-57182431

BlackDiamond 8800 Series Switches
PD4-2166404788
Some software forwarding of untagged VMAN traffic does not work when an 8900MSM128 module is installed.; That is, the software forwarding that results when limitlearning is configured does not work.
A similar problem occurs with untagged VMAN traffic received from one of the following I/
O modules regardless of the MSM installed:
•
8900-G48T-xl
•
8900-G48X-xl
•
8900-G96Tc
•
8900-10G8X-xl
•
10G8Xc
•
10G4Xc
This problem is also seen in ExtremeXOS 12.3, 12.4, and 12.5 software releases.
PD4-2049460356
Only partial traffic is forwarded between a service VLAN and VPLS (LACP). Transmitting
from a VLAN to VPLS, traffic loss is approximately 10%; from VPLS to a VLAN, traffic
loss is approximately 98%.
PD4-1633677741
On a BlackDiamond 8800 series switch, making link state changes during a large policy
refresh can take more than 20 seconds and may cause duplicate packet forwarding in an
MLAG configuration.
PD4-1680990961
Process etmon is terminated with signal 6 on MSM-B during local AAA feature
regression.
PD4-1546542587
ISIS process crashes with signal 6 while trying to change the metric-style to wide under
scaled conditions.
PD4-1637972971

and then upgrading the switch software.
PD4-1659977270
A BlackDiamond 8810 switch does not forward L3 routed packets with MPLS PHP
enabled.
Workaround: Disable MPLS PHP.
PD4-1567438997
When an ExtremeXOS switch receives an OSPF user group LSA advertisement with a
router ID field as 0.0.0.0, the switch does not process the advertisement and reboots
OSPF.
PD4-1674379381
When installing new PSU controller firmware, log messages starting with
<Crit:Kern.Critical> or <Erro:Kern.Error> may be generated by the backup
MSM and can be ignored.
PD4-1627772844
Due to the addition of new features in ExtremeXOS 12.5, BlackDiamond 8800 series
switch configurations running older management modules (MSM-G8X and MSM-48) may
run out of memory when a large number of VLANs are configured with multiple tagged
ports added for each VLAN. For example, a configuration with 4,000 VLANs and 24 ports
tagged on each VLAN is not supported. Newer BlackDiamond 8800 management
modules (MSM-48c or 8900-MSM128) are recommended for larger configurations.
PD4-1530729359
An OSPF session goes down and stays in EX_START and continues flapping to
EXCHANGE and EX_START states.
PD4-750014887
If a failover occurs during a “refresh policy” the HAL process dies on a new master MSM.
Workaround: Avoid performing a policy refresh if switching from one MSM to another.

Under the following circumstances, EAPS control packets received on the wrong VLAN
may be treated and processed.
1 Create a EAPS ring with three or more switches with a BlackDiamond 10808 as one
of the transit switches, directly connect to the master with load sharing enabled.
2 Enable load sharing on the primary port of the master switch (the master port should
be higher than the group port so that the configuration master and current master are
different in load sharing).
3 Disable load sharing on the BlackDiamond 10808.
4 Show EAPS on the master switch; the domain state will be complete.
5 The control packets are transmitted on the current master and the BlackDiamond
10808 will receive the packets on the port that is not part of the EAPS VLAN.
PD3-202184409
Adding/deleting a LAG sharing port changes the VLAN status, which is causing an OSPF/
MPLS reconvergence.
PD3-133427241
When an OSPF external filter is configured to deny routes, not all routes are being
filtered.
PD3-204793983
The egress rate-limit shown in the command output of the show port utilization
command is not correct.
BlackDiamond 12800 Series Switches
PD4-1598681891
When a BlackDiamond 12800 series switch is transmitting EAPS traffic, a dual master
situation occurs and the backup MSM goes into a failed state causing the system to
reboot with a higher number of routes and traffic.
PD4-1576028451

If a switch is added as a master-capable node of a stack whose master node has a
license level that is not equal to the level of the switch, the switch will fail. The complete
condition can be seen using the show slot detail command. In this state, the switch
does not have AAA services available. You will only be able to log into the switch using
the failsafe account that was last assigned to it. You must log into the switch to upgrade
the license. If the switch is not using the failsafe account configured on the stack, you
can use the synchronize stacking {node-address <node-address> | slot
<slot-number>} command to copy the failsafe account information from the master
switch to the failed switch NVRAM.
You can also use the configure stacking license-level command to configure
a license level restriction on the entire stack and then reboot the stack. Once the stack is
restarted, there is no longer a license mismatch, enabling you to log into the switch and
upgrade the license. From the master switch, run the unconfigure stacking
license-level command to get the stack to operate at the desired license and then
reboot the stack.

PD3-157687121
ExtremeXOS software uses Control Channel Type 2 to indicate router alert label mode.
In MPLS Router Alert Label mode, VCCV packets are encapsulated in a label stack.
However, the existing VCCV packets are sent like a stack without any PW label.
PD3-184989177
When an LDP advertise static setting is set to all, all static routes are treated as
egress routes and egress LSPs are created. That is, a label is generated and advertised
for the static route. If the router at the end of the static route advertises a label matching
that static route, the LSP that was previously an egress LSP becomes a transit LSP. An
ingress LSP should also be created whenever a label is received, however, the ingress
LSP is never created.
Workaround: Do not use the LDP advertise static all configuration in situations
where an ingress LSP for a static route is required.
PD3-139423053
Running the show mpls rsvp-te lsp summary command on a system configured

PD3-111544904
When a router receives an explicit NULL label, it is incorrectly treated as an implicit
NULL label, so rather than sending label 0, no label is sent.

If either an egress or a transit LSP traverses the system, and an MPLS labelled packet
containing a router alert label is received, that packet is not forwarded.
PD3-93069318
Only VLANs configured as protocol any should be added to MPLS.
PD3-104731701
When a traceroute is performed by setting the MPLS TTL to the IP TTL, ExtremeXOS
does not correctly send back an ICMP response. The result is “*” characters in the
traceroute for the routers that timed out. If a route is available, ExtremeXOS should
attempt to send back an ICMP response.
PD3-93630853
LDP should not advertise a label mapping for a direct VLAN that does not have IP
forwarding enabled.
PD3-203917264
When an explicit route object (ERO) is changed for an LSP session that is up, the LSP
that is already up is not torn down. LSP stays up based on the older values. The retry
count continues to increment as LSP tries to come up with new values by querying
routes every 30 seconds. This is done while the earlier LSP session is still active using
the previously configured values. See the retry count in the command output for the
show mpls rsvp-te lsp <lsp_name> detail command.

Description
ACL
PD3-77983510
Summit X450a and Summit X450e series switches and BlackDiamond 8800 a-series and
e-series modules provide more powerful ACL capabilities. Because of this, the amount
and complexity of ACL rules will naturally impact the time needed to process and apply
the ACL rules to the switch. This will also impact switch bootup time. Access Control List
limitations fall into two areas: physical and virtual.
Physical Limits—Summit X450a and Summit X450e series switches:
The per-VLAN, wildcard (port any), and single-port access list installation limitations are
1,024 rules for the Summit X450e and 2048 rules for the Summit X450a.
Physical Limits—BlackDiamond 8800 a-series and e-series modules:
The per-VLAN, wildcard (port any), and single-port access list installation limitations are
1,024 rules for the e-series modules, and 2048 rules for the a-series modules.
Extreme Networks recommends that you configure ACLs as per-VLAN, wildcard, or
single-port. If either of the following is true, you will have to configure ACLs with multiport lists:
Your application requires that ports do not have a homogeneous ACL policy.
When BlackDiamond 8800 original series modules are operational in the same chassis, it
may be necessary to configure ACLs to specific port-lists instead of as wildcard or perVLAN. This is because the original series modules have smaller physical limits.
Virtual Limits—Summit X450a and Summit X450e series switches:
When configuring a multi-port ACL, use the following guideline. The total ACL count (as
calculated by ACL rules times ports applied to) should not exceed 48,000 total ACL
rules.
For example, applying a 1,000 rule policy file to a 48 port multi-port list is supported
(1,000 rules * 48 ports in the list <= 48,000).
Virtual Limits—BlackDiamond 8800 a-series and e-series modules:
When configuring a multi-port ACL, use the following guideline. For any a-series or eseries blade in the system, its total ACL count (as calculated by ACL rules times ports
applied to) should not exceed 48,000 total ACL rules.
For example, applying a 1,000 rule policy file to a 48 port multi-port list on an a-series
module on slot 1 and an e-series module in slot 2 is fine. Neither module exceeds the
48,000 total ACL rules.
Excessive boot times and CPU resource starvation can be seen with larger total rule
counts. If your application requires additional capacity, contact Extreme Networks.

After a reboot, I/O slots do not go into an operational state with identity management
enabled (when I/O ports are part of identity manager).
Workaround: Using the ExtremeXOS CLI, run the configure identity-management

If the same two user names and domain names are detected via netlogin dot1x and
kerberos, the identities are correlated and only one identity is created. If the same
domain name supplied via netlogin and kerberos in different case, correlation does not
occur because identity manager treats domain names as case-sensitive. In the MD5 or
PEAP using MS-CHAPv2 method of dot1x, there is no domain name detected by
netlogin. Therefore, only the user name without the domain is supplied to identity
manager because identity manager treats “user1” and “user1@domain1” as different
identities.

PD Number
Description
PD4-1704766832,
PD4-1687280681
IP multicast packets received on a service VMAN/VLAN may not be flooded through a
VPLS tunnel.
Workaround: Add the service VMAN/VLAN port to any IGMP snooping enabled VLAN and
delete the port from that VLAN. For example:
configure vlan default add port 21 tagged
configure vlan default del port 21
SummitStack
PD4-1867670001
VM-tracking synchronization status is complete before all policy files are downloaded to
a switch.
PD4-1556789099
Memory depletion may occur when 100,000 routes flap among the 200,000 advertised
routes.
PD4-1970091731
During testing, ELRP reports a loop and displays the following error message:
Duplicate packet forwarding encountered when VPLS service VLAN
traffic traverses the MLAG Inter-Switch Connection on a
SummitStack with X460.
ACL
PD4-2077107171,
PD4-1856038101
A telnet access profile is not retained after running the save and reboot commands.
PD4-1899475193,

PD4-1757734278,
PD4-1274429658
Configuring a dynamic ACL with flow-redirect does not work after a switch reboot.
Workaround: After rebooting the switch, delete and add the ACL.
BGP
PD4-1726059489,
PD4-1701554204
BGP and MSDP may not establish a secure TCP connection to their peers when an
encrypted password contains a special character such as #.
DHCP
PD4-2087108280,
PD4-1394637671
A switch updates DHCP clients with dhcp-lease-timer instead of netloginlease-timer if the dhcp-lease-timer value is changed.
PD4-2027631804,
PD4-1372389708
Running the upload ip-security dhcp-bindings command fails with the
following error:
Object dhcpBindingsUpload does not support method set.
PD4-1854155063,
PD4-1578760166
Duplicate BOOTP OFFER and ACK packets are seen when ip-security dhcp-snooping is
enabled on a port.
Workaround: Disable ip-security dhcp-snooping to prevent duplication of DHCP
OFFER and ACK packets.
PD4-1866206149,
PD4-1813046514

violation occurs.
EAPS
PD4-1981687955,
PD4-1870786111
Running the disable netlogin port <slot:port> command while the slot is
down causes the switch to drop the packets received on that port in hardware if the
ethernet-source-address is not learned. This affects EAPSv1 control packets because
the ethernet-source-address in the EAPSv1 control packets is a special MAC and will
never be learned.
