Software Licenses and Features
If you have a service support contract and order a software license, or if you order a switch, you receive
the universal software image, available in crypto and noncrypto versions. If you do not have a service
support contract, such as a SMARTnet contract, download the image from Cisco.com.
The ME 3600X supports these licenses:
•
Metro IP access is the universal image.
•
Advanced Metro IP access license.
•
10 Gigabit Ethernet upgrade license—enables 10 Gigabit Ethernet on the SFP+ uplink ports.
For differences in feature support for each license, see Table 2 and Table 3 on page 6.
The ME3600X-24CX supports the above licences including the following:
•
10G license
•
1588BC license
•
T1/E1 counted license
•
OC3 per port license
The ME 3800X supports these licenses and a scaled license that can be installed with any of these
licenses to increase the supported values for that license, for example, more MAC addresses, VLANs,
IPv4 routes, and so on.
•
Metro Ethernet services is the universal image.
•
Metro IP services license.
•
Metro Aggregation services license.
•
Scaled license for any of the above licenses.
For differences in feature support for each license, see Table 4 and Table 5 on page 7.
To install a software image, see the “Upgrading the Switch Software” section on page 8 and the
“Working with the Cisco IOS File System, Configuration Files, and Software Images” chapter in the
software configuration guide.
To install a software license, see the “Cisco IOS Software Activation Tasks and Commands” chapter in
the Cisco IOS Software Activation Configuration Guide:
http://www.cisco.com/en/US/docs/ios/csa/configuration/guide/csa_commands.html
An emergency evaluation license is embedded in the software image and does not require the installation
of a license file. Specify which evaluation license to enable by using the license boot level command.
Enabling evaluation license on an ME 3800X:
Switch# configure terminal
Switch(conf)# license boot level <MetroEthServices|MetroIPServices|MetroAggrServices>
Note
Only MetroAggrServices is supported during evaluation. Accept the EULA.
Switch(conf)# exit
Switch# write memory
Switch# reload
Note: This evaluation license will be validated only after reload.

OL-31742-02
Enabling evaluation license on an ME 3600X:
Switch# configure terminal
Switch(conf)# license boot level <MetroIPAccess|AdvancedMetroIPAccess>
Note
Only AdvancedMetroIPAccess is supported during evaluation. Accept the EULA.
Switch(conf)# exit
Switch# write memory
Switch# reload
Note: This evaluation license will be validated only after a reload.
After entering the license boot level command, you are prompted to accept the End-User Licensing
Agreement (EULA). After accepting the EULA, exiting configuration mode, and saving the running
configuration to memory, reload the switch to apply the evaluation license.
Note
The evaluation period is valid for 60 days. When the 60 day evaluation period ends, the evaluation
license will be unusable after the next reload.
Upon installation of a license file, the license will automatically update to the new license type. There
is no need to clear the evaluation license.

Finding the Software Version and Feature Set
The Cisco IOS image is stored as a bin file in a directory that is named with the Cisco IOS release. The
image is stored on the system board flash device (flash:).
Note
The flash memory can store a maximum of two IOS images or tar files. If you try to copy or archive
upgrade beyond the flash memory capacity, the action aborts.
You can use the show version privileged EXEC command to see the software version that is running on
your switch. The second line of the display shows the version.
You can also use the dir filesystem: privileged EXEC command to see the directory names of other
software images that you might have stored in flash memory.
Deciding Which Files to Use
The software installation procedures in these release notes describe how to perform the upgrade by using
a combined tar file. This file contains the Cisco IOS image file. To upgrade the switch through the
command-line interface (CLI), use the tar file and the archive download-sw privileged EXEC
command.

Installing Software Images and Licenses
The Cisco ME 3800X, ME 3600X and ME 3600X-24CX switches are shipped with the latest software
image installed. Follow the instructions in this section if you need to reinstall or upgrade the software
image.
Before installing your switch software, make sure that you have archived copies of the current Cisco IOS
release and the Cisco IOS release to which you are upgrading. You should keep these archived images
until you have upgraded all devices in the network to the new Cisco IOS image and until you have
verified that the new Cisco IOS image works properly in your network.
Cisco routinely removes old Cisco IOS versions from Cisco.com. See End of Sale and End of Life
Products at this URL:

You can copy the software image file on the flash memory to the appropriate TFTP directory on a host
by using the copy flash: tftp: privileged EXEC command. You can also configure the switch as a TFTP
server to copy files from one switch to another without using an external TFTP server by using the
tftp-server global configuration command. For more information about the tftp-server command, see
the “Basic File Transfer Services Commands” section of the Cisco IOS Configuration Fundamentals
Command Reference at this URL:
http://www.cisco.com/en/US/docs/ios/fundamentals/command/reference/cf_book.html
This procedure is for copying the combined tar file to the switch. You copy the file to the switch from a
TFTP server and extract the files. You can download an image file and replace or keep the current image.
To download software, follow these steps:
Step 1
Use Table 6 on page 9 to identify the file that you want to download.
Step 2
Locate the software image file:
a.
If you are a registered customer, go to this URL and log in.
http://software.cisco.com/download/navigator.html
b.
For ME 3800X, navigate to Switches > Service Provider Switches - Ethernet Aggregation.
For ME 3600X, navigate to Switches > Service Provider Switches - Ethernet Access.
Note
Step 3
c.
Navigate to your switch model.
d.
Click IOS Software, then select the latest IOS release.
When you select a crypto graphic image, you must also accept the terms and conditions of using crypto
graphic images.
Download the image to a TFTP server and make sure that the server is properly configured.
For more information, refer to Appendix B in the software configuration guide for this release.
Step 4
Log into the switch through the console port or a Telnet session.
Step 5
(Optional) Ensure that you have IP connectivity to the TFTP server by entering this privileged EXEC
command:
Switch# ping tftp-server-address
For more information about assigning an IP address and default gateway to the switch, refer to the
software configuration guide for this release.
Step 6
Download the image file from the TFTP server to the switch by entering this privileged EXEC command:
Switch# archive download-sw tftp:[[//location]/directory]/image-name.tar
•
For //location, specify the IP address of the TFTP server.
•
For /directory/image-name.tar, specify the directory (optional) and the image to download.
Directory and image names are case sensitive.
•
The /overwrite option overwrites the software image in flash memory with the downloaded one.
•
The /reload option reloads the system after downloading the image unless the configuration has
been changed and not saved.
This example shows how to download an image from a TFTP server at 192.0.2.1 and to overwrite the
image on the switch:
10
OL-31742-02
Switch# archive download-sw /overwrite tftp://192.0.2.1/image-name.tar
You can also download the image file from the TFTP server to the switch and keep the current image by
using the /leave-old-sw option instead of the /overwrite option.
Note
There can be only two image directories in the flash memory.
The installation process extracts the tar file with all the files and the IOS image, and sets the BOOT
directory to the created directory in flash memory. The process takes approximately 5 to 10 minutes, and
at some stages might appear to have stopped.
Step 7
The switch is configured to boot automatically, but you can enter the show boot privileged EXEC
command to verify the boot path list and see if a manual boot is necessary.
Switch# show boot
BOOT path-list
:
flash:/me380x-universal-mz.153-2.S/me380x-universal-mz.153-2.S.bin
Config file
:
flash:/config.text
Private Config file : flash:/private-config.text
Manual Boot
: no
HELPER path-list
:
Step 8
Save the configuration and reload the switch.
Switch# reload
After the installation, the switch is running the universal image. Follow these steps to install a purchased
license with increased capabilities. To purchase a license, contact Cisco.
Step 1
Copy the license file to flash or TFTP.
Step 2
Enter this command to install the license:
Switch# license install flash:LICENSE_FILENAME
or
Switch# license install tftp://location/LICENSE_FILENAME
Step 3
Enter these commands to boot from the new license:
Switch# config t
Switch(config)# license boot level license_name
Step 4
If you have a a scaled license, install the scaled license
Switch# license install flash:SCALED_LICENSE_FILENAME
or
Switch# license install tftp://location/SCALED_LICENSE_FILENAME
Note
Step 5
To revert to a non-scaled license, enter the license clear scaled_license_name privileged EXEC
command.
Reload the switch for new license to take effect.
Switch# reload

Cisco IOS Release15.4(2)S, page 12
•
Important Notes, page 14
Cisco IOS Release15.4(2)S
The following new software features are introduced in the Cisco IOS Release 15.4(2)S:
•
802.1ad
IEEE 802.1ad Provider Bridge implements standard protocol for double tagging of data and control
protocol tunneling.
For more information, see
http://www.cisco.com/c/en/us/td/docs/switches/metro/me3600x_3800x/software/release/15-4_2_S
/configuration/guide/3800x3600xscg/sw802_one_ad.html
•
Auto-IP SVI/Port-Channel
In the ring topology, when a device is inserted into the ring, the neighboring node interfaces require
manual reconfiguration. The Auto-IP feature addresses the problem of manually reconfiguring
nodes during insertion, deletion, and movement of nodes within the ring. This feature automatically
provides IP addresses to the nodes inserted into the ring. Starting with Cisco IOS Release 15.4(2)S,
Auto-IP is supported on SVI, Port-Channel, and VRF.
For more information, see
http://www.cisco.com/c/en/us/td/docs/switches/metro/me3600x_3800x/software/release/15-4_2_S
/configuration/guide/3800x3600xscg/auto_ip.html
•
BFD Echo Mode
Starting with Cisco IOS Release 15.4(2)S, the Cisco ME3600X-24CX-M Switch supports
Bidirectional Forwarding Detection (BFD) in IPv4 Asynchronous and Echo mode. The Cisco
ME-3600-24CX Series switch supports 511 BFD sessions. BFD Echo Mode is offloaded to
hardware, which is only applicable to the ME-3600-24CX Series model.
For more information, see

BGP Accumulated IGP
OL-31742-02
The Border Gateway Protocol (BGP) Accumulated IGP feature is an optional non-transitive BGP
path attribute. The attribute type code for the accumulated interior gateway protocol (AIGP)
attribute is assigned by the Internet Assigned Numbers Authority (IANA). The value field of the
AIGP attribute is defined as a set of type, length, value (TLV) elements. The AIGP TLV contains
the AIGP metric.
For more information, see
http://www.cisco.com/c/en/us/td/docs/ios-xml/ios/iproute_bgp/configuration/xe-3s/irg-xe-3s-book/
bgp-accumulated-igp.html
•
BGP PIC Edge for IP and MPLS
The Border Gateway Protocol Prefix-Independent Convergence (BGP PIC) Edge feature improves
BGP convergence after a network failure. This convergence is applicable to both core and edge
failures, and you can use it in both IP and MPLS networks. This feature creates and stores a backup
or an alternate path in the routing information base (RIB), forwarding information base (FIB), and
Cisco Express Forwarding (CEF). When a failure is detected, the backup is taken or an alternate path
is chosen immediately, thus enabling a fast failover.
For more information, see

/configuration/guide/3800x3600xscg/swiprout.html
•
Hybrid Clocking Support
Starting with Cisco IOS Release 15.4(2)S, the hybrid mode is supported with PTP 1588 redundancy.
The hybrid mode is supported on the boundary clock and on the slave ordinary clocks.
For more information, see
http://www.cisco.com/c/en/us/td/docs/switches/metro/me3600x_3800x/software/release/15-4_2_S
/chassis/configuration/guide/3600x_24cxscg/swclocking.html
•
ISIS Local Microloop Protection
The ISIS Local Microloop Protection feature enables the link-state routing protocols such as the
Intermediate System-to-Intermediate System (ISIS) protocol to prevent or avoid local microloops or
uloops during a network convergence after a link-down event.
For more information, see
http://www.cisco.com/c/en/us/td/docs/switches/metro/me3600x_3800x/software/release/15-4_2_S
/configuration/guide/3800x3600xscg/swiprout.html
•
Time stamping using Network Time Protocol
Accurate synchronization of the two end-point clocks is achieved through either PTP/IEEE
1588-2002 or Network Time Protocol (NTP). This function is supported across all the
Cisco ME3600X and ME3800X series of switches.
For more information, see
http://www.cisco.com/c/en/us/td/docs/switches/metro/me3600x_3800x/software/release/15-4_2_S
/configuration/guide/3800x3600xscg/swy1731pm.html
•
Secured Zero Touch bootstrapping using AN
Autonomic Networking (AN) makes network devices intelligent by introducing self-management
concepts that simplify network management for the network operator. The Autonomic Networking
Infrastructure feature simplifies the network bootstrap functionality by removing the need for any
kind of pre-staging. This helps the network devices to join a domain securely, after which you can
configure the devices.

Open Caveats in Cisco Release 15.4(2)S
•
CSCum04406
Symptom: BFD Sessions flaps with Layer 3 SLA.
The Bidirectional Forwarding Detection (BFD) sessions flap with the Layer 3 Service Level
Agreements (L3 SLA).
Conditions: The issue occurs while staring the SLA, which is configured with profile data of the
Internet Mix (IMIX) traffic pattern.
Workaround: Use the packet profile combination of 64, 128, and 512 byte packets.
•
CSCun02392
Symptom: The tagged traffic drops.
Conditions: The issue occurs under the following conditions:
– Tagged traffic
– EFP is configured with dot1q/dot1ad VLAN range.
Workaround: Unconfigure and reconfigure the service instance.
•
CSCun16508
Symptom: Configure an IP SLA Service Performance test by using IMIX packet size and without
setting CIR or EIR. Observe that the amount of sent and received traffic is below the configured rate.
This shows up in a two-way test under the IR and Rx/Tx statistics and in a Traffic Generator test in
the Tx statistics.
Conditions: The issue occurs when you configure an IP SLA Service Performance Test which
involves traffic generation (Traffic Generator and Two-Way modes) using packet size of IMIX and
without having set CIR or EIR. This includes all non-color-aware test cases.
OL-31742-02
21
Workaround: Set the cir value equal to the highest configured rate step. Each traffic step meets the
configured rate for the current step.
•
CSCun62419
Symptom: The egress traffic on network-to-network interface (NNI) software trunk interface does
not contain the expected outer 0x88a8 tag when the ingress interface is configured as S-UNI port
with Ethernet Virtual Circuit (EVC).
Conditions: The issue occurs under the following conditions:
– When the ingress C-VLAN value is differed with the configured BD value of UNI-S EVC port.
– When S-UNI port is configured with “encapsulation default” and the S-UNI BD value and NNI
trunk VLAN are the same.
– If the S-UNI encap default, BD=100 and NNI trunk VLAN member of 100
Workaround: Perform shut and no shut on the S-UNI interface, the traffic egress on NNI with
expected VLAN ID on the dot1ad tag.
•
CSCun54426
Symptom: The LACP protocol flaps between ME3600 switches on EVC service instance
configurations.
Conditions: The issue occurs when a valid bridge-domain is not configured along with the service
instance configurations.
Workaround: Add a bridge-domain to the service instance configuration
•
CSCum69908
Symptom: The Y1731 Performance Monitoring (PM) does not collect the statistics when the EVC
tag X popped on ingress traffic before transiting MPLS PW and pushed EVC tag Y at egress traffic.
Conditions: The issue occurs when you send the CFM untagged packets over a pseuduowire.
Workaround: IP SLA works fine when the cos value matches with the cfm domain level.
Resolved Caveats in Cisco Release 15.4(2)S
•
CSCui64246
Symptom: After removing an xconnect from an EFP, the EFP continues to point to the same vsiid.
This results in traffic flow instead traffic drop.
Conditions: The issue occurs when an xconnect configuration is removed from an EFP without
removing the service instance.
Workaround: Remove the entire service instance configuration.
•
CSCui77188
Symptom: Unable to access SD flash (2G 16-3932-01 (C-Temp)) plugged in to a Cisco IOS ME
3600X 24CX series router. The message "SD read failed!" is displayed when the device boots up.
Conditions: This issue occurs when a Cisco IOS ME 3600X 24CX series router is booted with SD
card (2G 16-3932-01 (C-Temp)) plugged in.
Workaround: Use 2GB 16-3795-01 (I-Temp) SD cards.
•
CSCui84876
Symptom: Serial interface flaps and counters of serial interface fail to increment.
22
OL-31742-02
Conditions: The issue occurs under the following conditions:
– When you configure a T3 SAToP on path 1 of the first oc3 port (1/0/0)
– When you configure a serial interface between W2_PE1 and W2_PE2 on OC3 port connected
b2b (1/0/1)
– When the input and output of the serial interface counters fail to increment for any serial
interface created and first serial interface flaps of each port.
– When the counters fail to increment after you delete and recreate the first serial interface.
– When you reload the box after you recreate the first serial interface, the first serial interface
again goes down.
Workaround: Delete and recreate the serial interface.
•
CSCui92804
Symptom: Multicast traffic is software forwarded.
Conditions: The issue occurs when the multicast traffic flows on CPU with RPF interface as L3
port-channel.
Workaround: Move RPF to physical interface.
•
CSCuj73969
Symptom: SVI EoMPLS traffic loss after moving from default template to vpnv4-v6 template.
Conditions: The issue occurs when traffic fails at disposition.
Workaround: Change the template to default template.
•
CSCul01805
Symptom:
When a Metro switch ME600 or ME3800 is reloaded with an Ethernet service instance in
administratively shutdown state, it might report MAC-flap messages between the administratively
down service instance and another port if there is a loop with the service instance active.
This is only mac-flap messages since the efp learns the mac-address, but traffic is not forwarded.
Conditions:
The issues occurs when the mac-flap messages on the shut efp is seen only at bootup. This is seen
only if there is already a loop when the service instance is made active.
Workaround: Perform shut and no shut of the service instance.
•
CSCul19148
Symptom:
The .bin file that is extracted from tar does not have the right image name. And, when you upgrade
the image from 3.10.0 to 3.10.1 by using the archive download-sw <TAR file> command, the router
drops to rommon.
Conditions: The issue occurs when you extract the .bin file from .tar file and/or when you extract
the .bin file by using the archive download-sw command.
Workaround:
There is no work around for the wrong image name. Router dropping to rommon during upgrade
through the archive download-sw command can be avoided by using archive download-sw
/leave-old-sw <TAR file> command.
•
OL-31742-02
