Features and Feature Enhancements in
ExtremeXOS 12.4.2
This section lists the features and feature enhancements supported in ExtremeXOS 12.4.2 software:
●
Bootstrap Protocol (BOOTP) Relay
■
BOOTP Relay can now be enabled and disabled on a single VLAN.
■
Output from show bootprelay configuration command now displays the configuration of
BOOTP Relay on one or all VLANs for the specified virtual router (VR).
●
Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP)—Provides support for enabling and disabling
SNMP for any VR. The enable snmp access, disable snmp access, and show snmp commands
have been modified to support this option.
●
Forwarding Database (FDB)—The show fdb stats command now displays a dynamic page that
automatically refreshes FDB entry statistics for specified ports and VLANs. The no refresh
command option displays a static report.
●
IP Address Resolution Protocol (ARP)—The show iparp stats command now displays a dynamic
page that automatically refreshes IP ARP entry statistics for specified ports and VLANs. The no
refresh command option displays a static report.
●
XML Notification—New option allows user to specify a VR over which the XML client process can
connect to a Web server to send push notifications. The create xml-notification target url,
configure xml-notification target, and show xml-notification commands have been
modified for this added support.
●
Ethernet Automatic Protection Switching (EAPS)
■
Recognizes Provider Backbone Bridge (PBB) network configurations and provides connectivity
protection for VLANs on PBB network. When the network topology includes both EAPS and a
PBB domain, the EAPS controller mode automatically learns the relationship between the access
ExtremeXOS 12.4.2 Release Notes

Overview
VLANS (CVLANS or SVLANS) and the backbone VLAN (BVLAN). If the common link fails in
this configuration, the EAPS master node selects the active port leading to the BVLAN.
●
■
The configure eaps hello-pdu-egress command is added for special network topologies
that use spatial re-use and require that all EAPS Hello PDUs travel in the same direction on the
ring. The default (primary-port) configuration for this command is recommended.
■
The configure eaps failtime and configure eaps hellotime commands have been
updated to support configuration in milliseconds.
■
Fail-timer expiration time can now be set as low as 300ms.
Virtual Router (VR)
■
The number of supported VRs increased from 8 to 64 on the BlackDiamond 8800 c-series. All
other hardware supports up to eight user VRs.
■
Output from the show virtual-router command now indicates the maximum number of user
VRs and protocols supported on the switch.
●
Reserved Words—Prior to this release, all keywords were reserved. Reserved keywords cannot be
used for naming user-created objects, such as VLANs. Beginning with this release, only second-level
keywords are determined to be reserved. A complete list of reserved keywords is published in the
“Getting Started” chapter of the ExtremeXOS Concepts Guide.
●
ExtremeXOS Documentation
■
The ExtremeXOS Command Reference Guide includes two new lists indicating new or modified
commands.
■
The “Open Source Licenses” appendix is removed from ExtremeXOS documentation. The Open
Source License information is published on the World Wide Web and the URL can be found in
the preface for each document.
■
The ExtremeXOS 12.4 Concepts Guide incorrectly states that the “BlackDiamond 8800 originalseries modules and Summit X450 switches transmit packets on a single port of a LAG.” This
should read, “The MSM-G8X transmits broadcast, multicast, and unknown unicast packets on a
single port of a LAG.”
Features and Feature Enhancements in
ExtremeXOS 12.4.1
This section lists the features and feature enhancements supported in ExtremeXOS 12.4.1 software:
6
●
Address Resolution Protocol (ARP) Payload Virtual MAC Learning by Bridge—Provides capability
to learn MAC addresses that exist in the ARP payload.
●
Bidirectional Forwarding Detection (BFD)—Provides ability to register a discovered neighbor with
the BFD process and get the status of that neighbor. Also provides rapid failure detections and
informs user of path convergence.
●
Border Gateway Protocol (BGP) 4-Byte Autonomous System (AS) Number—Provides ability to
configure 4-byte AS numbers for BGP and to peer simultaneously with 2-byte and 4-byte peers.
Introduces optional, transitive attributes AS4_PATH and AS4_AGGREGATOR to propagate 4-byte
AS path information across BGP speakers that do not support 4-byte AS numbers.
●
CLI Scripting Enhancements—Enable user to:
■
Nest script loading up to three levels
■
Exit from a script with an error code
■
Configure a script-abort timer (time-out)
ExtremeXOS 12.4.2 Release Notes
Overview
■
Manually set an SNMP trap using a CLI command
■
Configure time delay (TCL after function)
●
Connectivity Fault Management (CFM) Support on a Service VLAN (SVLAN)—Provides ability to
configure SVLAN ports to act as a maintenance end points (MEPs) and maintenance intermediate
points (MIPs).
●
CFM Support on VPLS Node—Allows each VPLS node to be treated as an MIP in CFM. Also
enables VPLS-based MIPs to process and respond to link trace messages (LTMs) and loopback
messages (LBM).
●
Digital Diagnostics Monitoring Interface (DDMI)—Optional feature designed for debugging optic
modules. DDMI provides critical system information about Gigabit and 10 Gigabit optical
transceiver modules. Not all transceivers support DDMI capability. In ExtremeXOS 12.4.1, DDMI is
supported only on XFPs.
●
Domain Name Service (DNS) Client Support for IPv6—Provides ExtremeXOS applications the
ability to convert hostnames to IP addresses by querying an external DNS server.
●
Equal Cost Multi-path (ECMP) Scaling— Increases the number of IPv4 longest prefix match (LPM)
routes that can use equal cost multi-path (ECMP) by sharing common ECMP gateway "sets" in
hardware. ECMP scaling is supported on the following platforms: BlackDiamond 8000 a- and e-series
modules, BlackDiamond 8800 c-series modules, BlackDiamond 8900 modules, BlackDiamond 20800
modules, and Summit X250e, X450a, X450e, X480, and X650 switches.
●
Extreme Loop Recovery Protocol (ELRP) Port Shutdown—Provides ability to monitor individual
VLANs for loops. In addition to log and trap notifications, this feature provides the option to disable
a port on loop detection.
●
Hitless Failover with Nettools—Provides a moderate level of hitless failover by protecting a switch
from rebooting when the Nettools process fails.
●
Identity Management—Allows you to track users or devices that access a network based on device
name or user name (that is, user identity). User identity is captured based on network login
authentication, Link Layer Discovery Protocol (LLDP) discovery, and Kerberos snooping. The user
or device identity is mapped to its associated IP address, MAC address, computer hostname, domain
name, VLAN, and switch port location. This information can also be sent to EPICenter for
centralized reporting.
●
IPv6 Routes with Masks Greater than 64 Bits—BlackDiamond 8900 modules and Summit X650 and
X480 switches support hardware forwarding for IPv6 routes by using dedicated hardware.
BlackDiamond 8000 a- and e-series modules, BlackDiamond 8800 c-series modules, and
Summit X250e, X450a, and X450e switches also support hardware forwarding for up to 256 routes
with masks greater than 64 bits by sharing the hardware used for ACL support.
●
Medium-Specific Configuration CLI—Medium-specific configurations on combo ports allows users
to select the medium (fiber or copper) they want to configure. Configuration for each medium is
stored separately and simultaneously. This feature is only supported on Summit platforms having
combo ports.
●
MIB Support for Connectivity Fault Management (CFM)—Provides read access for CFM MIB
objects via SNMP.
●
Multicast Debug Tools—The multicast trouble-shooting commands, mrinfo and mtrace, are now
included in the implementation of IP multicast. Mtrace is the multicast equivalent of the unicast
"trace route" mechanism and is an effective debug command for testing multicast reachability. The
multicast router information tool, mrinfo, requests information from a router.
●
Multiprotocol Label Switching (MPLS) Support for Standalone Summit X480 Series Switches—
MPLS support is now available on standalone Summit X480 series switches.
●
MPLS Support for Running on a Virtual Router (VR) Other than a Default VR—MPLS runs on
one VR at a time, but can now be deleted from the default VR and added to a user-created VR.
ExtremeXOS 12.4.2 Release Notes

●
PIM-DM State Refresh—Periodically refreshes the prune state for multicast groups. Without this
feature, bandwidth is lost to periodic broadcast and prune cycles that occur when the prune state
times out.
●
Policy-Based Routing (PBR)—Allows user to bypass standard Layer 3 forwarding decisions for
certain flows. Typically, in a Layer 3 environment, when an IP packet hits an Ethernet switch or
router, the Layer 3 processing determines the next hop and outgoing interface for the packet based
only on the packet's destination address.
●
Provider Backbone Bridge (PBB) Support on a BlackDiamond 20808 Switch—Enables VMAN
transport over the internet. PBB network is defined by the IEEE 802.1ah Backbone Bridge standard,
which is an amendment to the IEEE 802.1Q VLAN standard. This standard allows Internet Service
Providers (ISPs) to use Ethernet to create a separate backbone for transporting subscriber frames.
The PBB network technology is sometimes referred to as MAC-in-MAC.
●
sFlow Support for the BlackDiamond 20800 Series Switch—sFlow support is now available on
BlackDiamond 20800 series switches.
●
Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP) Support for IPv6—Provides ability to manage an
IPv6 agent from an IPv6 SNMP manager. The agent supports IPv6 for communication of SNMP
management requests.
●
Simple Network Time Protocol (SNTP) Client Support for IPv6—Provides ExtremeXOS SNTP
clients the ability to get the current time by querying an NTP server running over IPv6.
●
Spanning Tree Protocol (STP) Edge Safeguard Enhancements—Allows STP edge safeguard to
disable a port as soon as a bridge protocol data unit (BPDU) is received by allowing a new CLI
keyword bpdu-restrict. It also provides a timer option to re-enable a disabled port.
●
VMAN Terminology Change—VMAN is an Extreme Networks term used to refer to double, tagencapsulated VLAN traffic. The Portable Bridge Notation (PBN) standard also describes
metropolitan area network technologies that are similar to VMAN. The VMAN and PBN terms are
used interchangeably in ExtremeXOS documentation.
●
VMAN Enhancements—Allow configuration of tagged VLANs and untagged VMANs on the same
physical port. Enhancements also allow configuration of tagged VLANs and tagged vMANs on the
same physical port when the VMAN ethertype is not 0x8100.
●
VPLS MIB Support—Enables SNMP to obtain information about Layer 2 (L2) VPNs. These MIBs
identify the pseudo-wires that are part of an L2 VPN. The MIBs also enable the association of a
pseudo-wire with its transport link state PDU (LSP). Extreme proprietary MIBs allow user to identify
primary and secondary LSPs in an RSVP LSP group. Support has also been added for pseudo-wire
up and down traps (SNMP notifications).
●
VPLS with STP Redundancy—Provides a reliable method of directly connecting an STP-protected
VLAN to a VPLS network. Redundant VPLS nodes work with STP to handle topology changes in a
customer network, including informing other VPLS nodes when an FDB flush is required. There is
also no longer a CLI restriction preventing configuring a VPLS service on an STP-protected VLAN.
●
Virtual Router Redundancy Protocol (VRRP) Preempt Delay Option—Provides ability to configure
a delay time before preempting a lower priority master. Preempt delay is configurable on a per
VRRP instance. This option avoids black holing traffic when an active gateway (for example, a router
with a higher priority) recovers and preempts the backup router before the active gateway is fully
operational.

Limits
This chapter summarizes the supported limits in ExtremeXOS 12.4.2.
Supported Limits
Table 38 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.
NOTE
The term “BlackDiamond 8000 series” refers to all BlackDiamond 8500, 8800, and 8900 series modules.
NOTE
The scaling and performance information shown in Table 38 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.
NOTE
The route limits shown in Table 38 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.
NOTE
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, X450, X450a, X450e, or X650 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.

a. An ACL mask defines a unique match criteria and relative rule precedence. Masks are automatically generated based on
the contents of an access-list policy. Only adjacent rules within the policy that have identical match criteria will utilize
the same ACL mask. For this reason, it is advantageous to list all rules with the same match criteria together unless a relative precedence with other policy rules is required. Using VLAN-based or wildcard ACLs requires the ACL masks to be
allocated on every port in the system.
b. The table shows the total available; see the note included in PD3-77983510.
c. Limit depends on setting configured for configure forwarding external-tables.
d. Applies only if all enabled BlackDiamond 8000 I/O modules are BlackDiamond 8000 c- or xl-series modules.
e. Effective capacity varies based on actual IP addresses and hash algorithm selected, but is higher for BlackDiamond

Open Issues
Following are the open issues for supported features in ExtremeXOS 12.4.2. They are organized into the
following sections:
Table 39: Platform-Specific and Feature PDs
PD Number
Description
General
PD3-57182431
For the incoming traffic with alignment errors, the "RX Align" counter in the output of the
show ports <port number> rxerrors command is not incremented. Instead the
"RX CRC" counter is incremented.
PD3-71725881
When configuring an optional name for the time zone/DST, the time zone name truncates
at seven characters. The system default is six characters.
PD4-813961562
When a service VLAN is changed to include a dot1q tag on both sides in CFM VPLS, the
RMEP entry is not learned on one side.
PD4-1194741135
setDynamicAc.pl, which is used to create a dynamic ACL and bind it to a specific port, is
not working.
Workaround: The following SOAP element corrects this issue.
SOAP::Data->name("applicationName" => "Cli"));
PD4-910088928
The following error message is displayed when downgrading a switch from ExtremeXOS
12.3 or later to ExtremeXOS 12.2 or earlier.
Error: child process exited abnormally.
PD4-749060484
Errors are seen when a configuration having identifiers (SNMPv3 user name/EAPS domain
name) with special characters are loaded through a script.
PD4-561358261
If you create a super VLAN and a sub-VLAN in different virtual routers you are able to
bind the VLANs. Super VLANs and sub-VLANs should belong to the same virtual router.

PD Number
Description
PD4-460892051
Installing different versions of an ExtremeXOS image and an SSH image displays the
following error message:
Failed to install image- cannot read spec file" in the log
"upgrade failed installation:got error from installer DLL"
PD3-132508261
When issuing the enable jumbo-frame port all command on a BlackDiamond
8800, the MTU size for the VLAN is not configured. Sending 5,000 byte traffic works
correctly. However, if you disable jumbo-frames on the egress port the error message
Packet too big is displayed.
PD3-104885349
When a shared link comes up, temporary traffic loss may occur until FDB entries are
aged. Aging occurs by default every five minutes.
Workaround: To reduce traffic loss, reduce the default age time.
PD3-132775269
Telnet sessions between two switches using two windows causes one session to hang if
both sessions are edited but only one session is saved.
PD3-28378521
Enabling load sharing on a port that is being mirrored causes the mirroring to stop.
BlackDiamond 8800 Switch
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.
BlackDiamond 10800 Switch
PD3-121985381
You cannot configure an IP MTU that is greater than the configured jumbo frame size.
However, when the jumbo frame size is configured using a smaller value than the IP
MTU, the configuration is accepted and the traffic is forwarded using the larger packet
sizes.
PD4-489592307
Switch is not sending an "icmp destination unreachable" message to the source when it
receives a jumbo packet with a "dont fragment" bit message. This applies to
BlackDiamond 10800 and BlackDiamond 20808 switches only.
PD3-28320363
In IPv6, the encapsulate value is “next header,” which is not currently a valid attribute.
PD3-124124316

PD4-318846862
L3 multicast traffic in a VPLS VMAN is forwarded twice when the LSP is changed to port
sharing and is then changed back.
PD3-54870537,
PD3-45729158
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

On Summit X480 switches, L3 multicast traffic sent from a service VLAN/vMAN to VPLS
is not received at the VPLS peer.
Workaround: Two modes of operation are supported on ports that are configured as part of
a VPLS service VLAN.
Using the first mode, the following configuration is set for all VLANs on the port (VPLS
service VLANs and non-VPLS service VLANs):
1 IGMP snooping is configured as disabled. The default is enabled.
2 No IP address is configured.
Using the second mode, the following configuration is set:
1 Run the configure igmp snooping filters per-VLAN command. The default
is per-port.
2 If an IP address is configured for a VPLS service VLAN, run the configure
ipmcforwarding to-cpu off port <port> command. The default is auto.

If a switch is added to a stack whose master switch has a license level that is greater
than 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 <slotnumber>} 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.

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.

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 singleport. If either of the following is true, you will have to configure ACLs with multi-port
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.

Exp examination and replacement configuration is getting retained after a user deletes
MPLS from current VR and adds it to another VR.
Workaround: Use “unconfigure MPLS” command before deleting MPLS from the VR that

Uploading or downloading a configuration results in an MPLS configuration being lost as
MPLS is not deleted from the VR-Default.
PD3-208178928
Adding a static route with an MPLS LSP may cause one of the following problems:
• If a static route is added with an MPLS LSP whose transport setting is “IP traffic
deny,” the route is displayed with an invalid nexthop in the show iproute mpls
command output.
• When a static route is added with an MPLS LSP that is not present in show
iproute mpls command output. For example, if there are 17 RSVP-TE LSPs to the
same destination, only 16 LSPs are eligible for carrying traffic because of a maximum
ECMP path limit of 16. Adding static routes with 17 LSPs results in the same
observation.

Workaround: Disable BGP prior to deleting the VLAN and enable graceful restart on BGP.
Workaround: This issue is not seen if Kerberos packets are sent either through UDP or
with TCP Kerberos only. It is recommended that the client use either TCP or UDP for a
Kerberos request on the client side (reference: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/244474).

access-profile and an ACL.
PD4-826754811,
PD4-667212313
If the refresh policy command is invoked by adding more entries to the policy file,
then after unconfiguring that specific ACL, an ExtremeXOS switch starts logging messages
such as:
Denied packet on ingress interface vlanIf=1000223 slot=1 port=1,
too many ACL's & packet rate is too high" and start to drop all
the packets received in slow path.
PD4-828768941,
PD4-556797775
The show access-list meter ports x command returns all meters on the switch,
not just the one associated with port x.

PD Number
Description
PD4-825283110,
PD4-627092945
When a shared port is configured prior to enabling an EAPS domain, the EAPS protected
VLAN does not block the secondary port in some cases.
PD4-976632991,
PD4-861919266
Expected traffic convergence time for EAPS has increased after upgrading from
ExtremeXOS 11.6 to ExtremeXOS 12.0, resulting in more traffic loss.
ESRP
PD3-52741820
Disabling a shared port results in the ESRP port restarting and the configuration
disappearing.
PD4-817417119,
PD4-631761683
When ESRP is disabled, clients using an ESRP virtual IP address as a default gateway
are not able to communicate outside the VLAN.
PD4-856338603,
PD4-729030981

forwarded with multiple subscribers on one port.
IPv6 Unicast
PD3-139714881
The following info level messages appear in the log when link aggregation is configured
on a VLAN associated with an IPv6 6-to-4 tunnel:
05:01:49.04 <Info:HAL.VLAN.Info> MSM-B:
pibIPv6InstallTunneledLinkLocalFilter: Could not install filter
unit 12, Entry exists
04/24/2007 05:01:49.05 <Info:HAL.VLAN.Info> MSM-B:
pibIPv6InstallTunneledLinkLocalFilter: Repaired filter unit 12
These messages do not affect the operation of the switch.
IS-IS
PD3-190952336
When one or more point-to-point interfaces are present on a router with IS-IS graceful
restart enabled, the graceful restart may fail for the entire node.
Workaround: Do not use point-to-point links if graceful restart is also used.
PD3-183234835
Graceful restart fails during "restart process isis." This problem occurs during a graceful
restart when one or more neighbors is not enabled as a restart helper.
Workaround: Ensure all nodes are enabled as restart helpers prior to executing a graceful
restart.
Multicast
PD4-876867238,
PD4-814229965
Multicast packets using a system MAC address as a destination MAC address are
periodically leaked in slowpath every 30 seconds.

PD Number
Description
PD4-819023271,
PD4-684538103
Running the save configuration command causes a memory leak in the netlogin process.
PD4-878324658,
PD4-765586466
Network login enabled ports are authenticating the switch MAC address in certain
loopback configurations.
PD4-853111507,
PD4-843130728
Network login users are not authenticated if the "Tunnel-Private-Group-ID" attribute value
is set to 0 on a RADIUS server.
OSPF
PD4-875793527,
PD4-929585917
Incoming router LSAs with a router link greater than 420, causes the OSPF process to
crash with an assertion failure.
PD4-974227589,
PD4-896536108
When running OSPFv3 over a 6-in-4 tunnel interface, OSPFv3 treats the interface as
broadcast rather than point-to-point.
PD4-824384216,
PD4-707855673
OSPF stops translating external routes after deleting a static route to the same destination
IP address.
PD4-760942841,
PD4-759590041
After a port in a VLAN is added to an OSPF area, it takes about four seconds to update a
neighboring switch.
PD4-828769034,
PD4-241726909
If two routers, both reachable from one another, originate functionally equivalent AS
external LSAs (same destination, cost, and non-zero forwarding address), the LSA
originated by the router having the highest OSPF router ID is used. The router having the
lower OSPF router ID can then flush its LSA. However, an ExtremeXOS switch does not
purge the functionally equivalent AS external LSA when an Extreme OSPF router ID is
lower.
PD4-861837558,
PD4-767590126
In a jumbo frame environment, an OSPFv3 neighbor gets stuck at EX_START.
PD4-831651183,

are enabled.
ScreenPlay
PD4-817159860,
PD4-552010000
The following message is periodically logged when the Event Log screen is left open in
ScreenPlay:
Login passed for user admin through xml (::)
PD4-860761605,
PD4-774800225
ScreenPlay shows the wrong port speed after setting autonegotiation to off and on
because the XML API returns the incorrect configuration speed after disabling and
enabling autonegotiation.
PD4-902392480,
PD4-776663281
ScreenPlay does not load management information. It just prints "Loading" for the
"Management" information on the dashboard tab.
sFlow
PD4-1083414641,
PD4-962328921
VRRP advertisement packets are dropped when sFlow sampling is enabled.

PD4-815857259,
PD4-747221911
Changing the storage type of default SNMP objects (Communities/Users/Groups/Access) to
“non-volatile” allows a user to delete these default SNMP entities like any other user
created entity.
PD4-901753841,
PD4-547591482
Performing an snmpwalk on OID 1.3.6.1.4.1.1916.1.4

Configuring an SNMP target address using a MIB incorrectly sets the VR option, which
results in traps not being sent.
Spanning Tree Protocol
PD4-822468514,
PD4-538752306
The load script command displays an error if the script file contains MSTP
configurations.
PD4-863979257,
PD4-814770957
An STP topology change triggers EAPS to flush FDBs and send FlushFdb PDUs despite
the fact that none of the STP protected VLANs are participating in EAPS.
PD4-931015749,
PD4-925787371
In RSTP, when a port becomes a root port and an alternate port exists on a bridge,
agreement BPDUs are not immediately sent back as per standards.
VRRP
94
PD4-804569911,
PD4-796161449
System memory is depleted when non-ICMP IP packets are sent to a VRRP virtual IP
address.
PD4-860703541,
PD4-855539430
When ping-tracking is enabled for VRRP, VRRP performs the failover based on a
cumulative ping-track failure instead of consecutive ping-track failures.
PD4-824643270,
PD4-629585032
VRRP backup does not return the real IP address of the VRRP master for the SNMP
object vrrpOperMasterIpAddr.
