9,194, the value is reduced to 9,194 after upgrading to ExtremeXOS 12.1 or later. You will not receive a
log message notification of this value reduction.
Feature Enhancements in ExtremeXOS 12.1.3
Following are the feature enhancements supported in ExtremeXOS 12.1.3. These features will be
documented in detail in the ExtremeXOS 12.3 versions of the ExtremeXOS Concepts Guide and the
ExtremeXOS Command Reference Guide, unless otherwise noted.
BGP Enhancements
The following new BGP features have been added in this release:
●
Inactive Route Advertisement on page 6
●
Default Route Origination and Advertisement on page 10
ExtremeXOS 12.1.4 Installation and Release Notes

Inactive Route Advertisement
BGP inactive routes are defined as those routes that are rated best by BGP and not best in IP routing
table. For example, an IGP route to the same destination may be best because it has a higher priority in
the IP route table than the BGP best route. The default configuration of the ExtremeXOS software does
not advertise BGP inactive routes to BGP neighbors.
The default configuration (no BGP inactive route advertisement) is more consistent with data traffic
forwarding. However, when advertisement of inactive BGP routes is enabled, BGP need not depend
upon the route manager module to know whether a BGP route is active or not. This actually improves
the performance of BGP processing and advertisement.
To enable or disable BGP inactive route advertising, use the following commands:
enable bgp {address-family [ipv4-unicast | ipv4-multicast]} advertise-inactive-route
disable bgp {address-family [ipv4-unicast | ipv4-multicast]} advertise-inactive-route
When BGP inactive route advertising is enabled, inactive BGP routes are considered for BGP route
aggregation. When this feature is disabled, inactive BGP routes are ignored while aggregating routes.
The following commands have been added or modified to support this feature:
6
●
disable bgp advertise-inactive-route on page 7
●
enable bgp advertise-inactive-route on page 8
●
show bgp on page 9
ExtremeXOS 12.1.4 Installation and Release Notes
Overview
disable bgp advertise-inactive-route
disable bgp {address-family [ipv4-unicast | ipv4-multicast]} advertiseinactive-route
Description
Disables advertisement of BGP inactive routes, which are defined as those routes that rated best by BGP
and not best in the IP routing table.
Syntax Description
ipv4-unicast
Disables inactive route advertisement for IPv4 unicast routes. If you do not
specify an address family, the command applies to IPv4 unicast routes.
ipv4-multicast
Disables inactive route advertisement for IPv4 multicast routes.
Default
Disabled.
Usage Guidelines
This command can be successfully executed only when BGP is globally disabled. If you want to disable
inactive route advertisement and BGP is enabled, you must disable BGP (disable bgp), disable this
feature, and then enable BGP (enable bgp).
Example
The following command disables inactive route advertisement for IPv4 unicast traffic:
disable bgp address-family ipv4-unicast advertise-inactive-route
History
This command was first available in ExtremeXOS 12.1.3.

History
This command was first available in ExtremeXOS 10.1.
This command required a specific license in ExtremeXOS 11.1.

software licensing, including how to obtain and upgrade your license and what licenses are appropriate
for this feature, see the ExtremeXOS Concepts Guide, Appendix A, “ExtremeXOS Software Licenses.”
Default Route Origination and Advertisement
The default route origination and advertisement feature allows you to originate and advertise a default
route to a BGP neighbor (or to all neighbors in a peer group) even though no default route exists in the
local IP routing table. It also allows you to associate policy rules to conditionally advertise a default route
to BGP neighbors.
When default route origination becomes active, the default route is advertised to the specified BGP
neighbors, overriding any previously sent default route. If a default route is added to the local IP
routing table while default route origination is active, the default route defined by this feature takes
precedence over the new regular default route. If default route origination becomes inactive, and a
regular default route exists, the regular default route is advertised to BGP neighbors.
The following sections provide additional information on this feature:
10
●
Managing Policies for Default Route Origination on page 11
●
Enabling and Disabling Route Origination on page 11
●
Example: Default Route Origination on page 11
ExtremeXOS 12.1.4 Installation and Release Notes
Overview
Managing Policies for Default Route Origination
When you use a policy with default route origination, the default route is originated only if the local
BGP RIB contains a route that matches the policy match conditions. You can use the following match
conditions:
●
NLRI
●
AS-path
●
Community
●
Origin
You can also use the following policy actions in the policy to set the route attributes:
●
AS-path
●
Community
●
Origin
After a policy is configured for default route origination, BGP must periodically scan the local BGP RIB
to make sure that the policy rules evaluate to true for at least one route in local BGP RIB. If the rules
evaluate to true, default origination remains active. If the rules evaluate to false, then default origination
becomes inactive and the default routes must be withdrawn.
Enabling and Disabling Route Origination
To enable or disable BGP default route origination and advertisement for BGP neighbors, use the
following commands:
enable bgp [{neighbor} <remoteaddr> | neighbor all] {address-family [ipv4-unicast |
ipv4-multicast]} originate-default {policy <policy-name>}
disable bgp [{neighbor} <remoteaddr> | neighbor all] {address-family [ipv4-unicast |
ipv4-multicast]} originate-default
To enable or disable BGP default route origination and advertisement for a BGP peer group, use the
following commands:
enable bgp {peer-group} <peer-group-name> {address-family [ipv4-unicast | ipv4multicast]} originate-default {policy <policy-name>}
disable bgp {peer-group} <peer-group-name> {address-family [ipv4-unicast | ipv4multicast]} originate-default
Example: Default Route Origination
The following example configures the originate default route feature for BGP neighbor 10.203.134.5
using policy def_originate.pol.
def_originate.pol
entry prefix_matching {
if match any {
nlri 192.168.3.0/24;
} then {
as-path "65001";
permit;
}
ExtremeXOS 12.1.4 Installation and Release Notes
11
Overview
}
enable bgp neighbor 10.203.134.5 originate-default policy def_originate
With this configuration, a default route is originated and sent to neighbor 10.203.134.5 only if there is a
BGP route in the local RIB which matches the statement nlri 192.168.3.0/24. If a matching route
exists, the default route is sent to neighbor 10.203.134.5 with the 65001 as-path prepended. If this is an
EBGP neighbor, then the local AS-Number is prepended after 65001.
If the route for the match statement nlri 192.168.3.0/24 goes away and there is no other matching
route in the BGP RIB, the default route origination feature becomes inactive and BGP withdraws the
0.0.0.0/0 default route from neighbor 10.203.134.5. When a matching route becomes available again in
the local BGP RIB, the default route origination feature becomes active again and the default route
0.0.0.0/0 is advertised to neighbor 10.203.134.5.
Commands for Default Route Origination and Advertisement
The following commands have been added or modified to support this feature:

Overview
BGP ECMP
The BGP Equal Cost Multi-path (ECMP) feature supports load sharing by creating a multipath to a
destination. This multipath contains multiple routes that are determined to have an equal cost because
the following parameters are the same for each route:
●
Weight
●

●

●

NOTE
ECMP does not install an additional path if the next hop is the same as that of the best path. All paths within a
multipath must have a unique next hop value.
BGP ECMP does not affect the best path selection. For example, the router continues to designate one of
the paths as the best path and advertise this best path to its neighbors. EBGP paths are preferred to
IBGP paths.
The BGP ECMP feature allows you to define the maximum number of equal cost paths (up to eight) in
a multipath. A multipath for an IBGP destination is called an IBGP multipath, and the multipath for an
EBGP destination is called an EBGP multipath.
If there are more equal cost paths for a destination than the configured maximum, the BGP identifier for
the advertising BGP speaker is used to establish a path priority. The lower BGP identifier values have
priority over the higher values. For example, if the configuration supports 4 paths in a multipath, only
the four paths with the lowest BGP identifier values become part of the multipath.
To enable or disable BGP ECMP, enter the following command:
configure bgp maximum-paths <max-paths>
The max-paths setting applies to BGP on the current VR. Specify more than 1 path to enable BGP
ECMP and define the maximum number of paths for IBGP and EBGP multipaths. Specify 1 path to
disable ECMP. To display BGP ECMP configuration information, use the show bgp command.
The following commands have been added or modified to support this feature:
●
configure bgp maximum-paths on page 20
●
show bgp on page 21
●
show bgp routes on page 23

Overview
configure bgp maximum-paths
configure bgp maximum-paths <max-paths>
Description
Enables or disables the BGP ECMP feature and specifies the maximum number of paths supported on
the current VR.
Syntax Description
max-paths
Specifies the maximum number of paths. The range is 1 to 8. The value 1
disables BGP ECMP. A value greater than 1 enables BGP ECMP and specifies
the maximum number of paths.
Default
One. BGP ECMP is disabled.
Usage Guidelines
This command triggers the BGP decision process, causing BGP to re-install the entire BGP routing table
into the IP forwarding table. This activity requires a significant amount of switch processor resources, so
we recommend that you enable or disable the BGP ECMP feature before enabling the BGP protocol
globally on a VR. Run the enable iproute sharing command to ensure that BGP ECMP routes are
programmed in the hardware.
Example
The following command enables BGP ECMP and sets the maximum number of paths to 4:
configure bgp maximum-paths 4

Support for Overlapping Aggregate Routes
BGP now supports overlapping routes. The following command description has been updated for this
feature:
●
configure bgp add aggregate-address on page 26
ExtremeXOS 12.1.4 Installation and Release Notes
25
Overview
configure bgp add aggregate-address
configure bgp add aggregate-address {address-family [ipv4-unicast |
ipv4-multicast]} <ipaddress> {as-match | as-set} {summary-only}
{advertise-policy <policy>} {attribute-policy <policy>}
Description
Configures a BGP aggregate route.
Syntax Description
address-family
The address family. BGP supports two address families: IPv4 unicast and IPv4
multicast.
ipaddress
Specifies an IP network address and mask length.
as-match
Generates autonomous system sequence path information (order of AS numbers
in AS_PATH is preserved).
as-set
Generates autonomous system set path information (order of AS numbers in
AS_PATH is not preserved).
summary-only
Specifies to send only aggregated routes to the neighbors.
advertise-policy
Specifies the policy used to select routes for this aggregated route.
attribute-policy
Specifies the policy used to set the attributes of the aggregated route.
Default
If no address family is specified, IPv4 unicast is the default.
Usage Guidelines
Route aggregation is the process of combining the characteristics of several routes so that they are
advertised as a single route. Aggregation reduces the amount of information that a BGP speaker must
store and exchange with other BGP speakers. Reducing the information that is stored and exchanged
also reduces the size of the routing table.
Before you can create an aggregate route, you must enable BGP aggregation using the following
command:
enable bgp aggregation
BGP supports overlapping routes. For example, you can configure both of the following aggregate
addresses:
●
192.0.0.0/8
●
192.168.0.0/16
After you create an aggregate route, the aggregate route remains inactive until BGP receives a route
with an IP address and mask that conforms to an aggregate route. When a conforming route is received,
the aggregate route becomes active and is advertised to BGP neighbors. If the summary-only option is
specified, only the aggregate route becomes active and is advertised. If the summary-only option is
omitted, any conforming aggregate routes and the received route are advertised to BGP neighbors.

address-family
The address family to which the IGP routes is exported. BGP supports two
address families: IPv4 Unicast and IPv4 Multicast.
Default
Disabled.
If no address family is specified, IPv4 unicast is the default.
Usage Guidelines
The exporting of routes between any two routing protocols is a discreet configuration function. For
example, you must configure the switch to export routes from OSPF to BGP and, if desired, you must
configure the switch to export routes from BGP to OSPF. You must first configure both protocols and
then verify the independent operation of each. Then you can configure the routes to export from OSPF
to BGP, and the routes to export from BGP to OSPF. Similarly for BGP and ISIS, or BGP and RIP.
You can use policies to associate BGP attributes including Community, NextHop, MED, Origin, and
Local Preference with the routes. Policies can also be used to filter out exported routes.

Overview
Flow Control—Summit Family of Switches and BlackDiamond
8800 Series Switches Only
With autonegotiation enabled, the Summit® family of switches and the BlackDiamond® 8800 series
switches advertise the ability to support pause frames. This includes receiving, reacting to (stopping
transmission), and transmitting pause frames. However, the switch does not actually transmit pause
frames unless it is configured to do so, as described below.
IEEE 802.3x flow control provides the ability to configure different modes in the default behaviors. Ports
can be configured to transmit pause frames when congestion is detected, and the behavior of reacting to
received pause frames can be disabled.
TX
You can configure ports to transmit link-layer pause frames upon detecting congestion. The goal of IEEE
802.3x is to backpressure the ultimate traffic source to eliminate or significantly reduce the amount of
traffic loss through the network. This is also called lossless switching mode.
The following limitations apply to the TX flow control feature:
●
Flow control is applied on an ingress port basis which means that a single stream ingressing a port
and destined to a congested port can stop the transmission of other data streams ingressing the same
port which are destined to other ports.
●
High volume packets destined to the CPU can cause flow control to trigger. This includes protocol
packets such as, EDP, EAPS, VRRP, and OSPF.
●
When flow control is applied to the fabric ports, there can be a performance limitation. For example,
a single 1G port being congested could backpressure a high-speed fabric port and reduce its effective
throughput significantly.
To configure a port to allow the transmission of IEEE 802.3x pause frames, use the following command:
enable flow-control tx-pause ports
NOTE
To enable TX flow-control, RX flow-control must first be enabled. If you attempt to enable TX flow-control with
RX flow-control disabled, an error message is displayed.
To configure a port to return to the default behavior of not transmitting pause frames, use the following
command:
disable flow-control tx-pause ports
RX
You can configure the switch to disable the default behavior of responding to received pause frames.
Disabling rx-pause processing avoids dropping packets in the switch and allows for better overall
network performance in some scenarios where protocols such as TCP handle the retransmission of
dropped packets by the remote partner.
To configure a port to disable the processing of IEEE 802.3x pause frames, use the following command:

If you do not specify a port number or range of ports, detailed system-related information is displayed
for all ports. The data is displayed in a table format.
This status information may be useful for your technical support representative if you have a network
problem.
The detail parameter is used to provided more specific port information. The data is called out with
written explanations versus displayed in a table format.
NOTE
The keyword detail displays slightly different information depending on the platform and configuration you are
working with.
The link filter counter displayed with the detail keyword is calculated at the middle layer on receiving
an event. The link filter up indicates the number of link transitions from down to up at the middle layer
filter.

ExtremeXOS 12.1.4 Installation and Release Notes
Overview
STP and Network Login
Spanning Tree Protocol (STP) and Network Login work on the edge port with safeguard only. If a port
has netlogin enabled but does not have STP safeguard enabled, the STP domain cannot be enabled. This
feature works with spanning tree operational mode dot1w and MSTP.
Limitation: This feature does not support network login in Campus mode.
STP works in three port modes:
●
Extreme Multiple Instance Spanning Tree Protocol (EMISTP) mode
EMISTP mode is proprietary to Extreme Networks® and is an extension of STP that allows a
physical port to belong to multiple STPDs by assigning the port to multiple VLANs. EMISTP adds
significant flexibility to STP network design. BPDUs are sent with an 802.1Q tag having an STPD
instance Identifier (StpdID) in the VLANid field.
This encapsulation mode supports the following STPD modes of operation: 802.1D and 802.1w.
●
Per VLAN Spanning Tree (PVST+) mode
This mode implements PVST+ in compatibility with third-party switches running this version of STP.
The STPDs running in this mode have a one-to-one relationship with VLANs, and send and process
packets in PVST+ format.
This encapsulation mode supports the following STPD modes of operation: 802.1D and 802.1w.
●
dot1d
This mode is reserved for backward compatibility with previous STP versions. BPDUs are sent
running in 802.1D mode.
This encapsulation mode supports the following STPD modes of operation: 802.1D, 802.1w, and
MSTP.
In PVST+ and EMISTP modes, carrier VLAN restrictions are imposed (see the ExtremeXOS Concepts
Guide for more information about carrier VLANs). If all ports are in dot1d mode, there are no carrier
VLAN restrictions.
NOTE
STP domains should be enabled after completing safeguard configurations. Each netlogin port should be enabled
with safeguard. If you add a new netlogin port to an already enabled STP domain, disable the spanning tree domain
and then enable it again.
Refer to the following configurations when running STP and netlogin on an edge port.

Overview
Health Check Link Aggregation
The following sections discuss the Health Check Link Aggregation feature.
Health Check Link Aggregation
The Health Check LAG application allows you to create a link aggregation group where individual
member links can monitor a particular TCP IP address and TCP port. When connectivity to the TCP IP
address and TCP port fails, the member link is removed from the link aggregation group.
Establishing the status of a TCP connectivity is based on standard TCP socket connections. As long as
the switch can establish a TCP connection to the target switch and TCP port, the connection is
considered up. The TCP connection will retry based on the configured frequency and miss settings.
A typical use case for this application is when a user wishes to connect each member link to a Security
Server to validate traffic. Each member link of the Health Check LAG is connected to an individual
Security Server. The LAG is added to a VLAN on the same subnet as the Security Server IP addresses
they wish to monitor. Each member port is configured to monitor a particular IP address and TCP port.
The Health Check LAG application attempts to do a TCP connect to each IP/TCP port through each
member port. The Health Check LAG, by virtue of the sharing algorithm, will load balance traffic across
the member links. If a TCP connection cannot be established through the member link, the port is
removed from the aggregator and traffic through that particular link is redistributed to the other LAG
member links.
Figure 1 displays an example of a Health Check LAG.

192.168.1.104 NOTE: Default port to monitor is 80 (HTTP)
Configuring Health Check Link Aggregation
To configure Health Check link aggregation you must first create a LAG. One port in the LAG serves as
the logical port for the LAG and is the reference port used in configuration commands.
When you create the LAG, no monitoring is initially configured. The LAG is created in the same way
that a static LAG is created and if no monitoring if ever created, this LAG behaves like a static LAG.
1 Create a LAG using the following command:
enable sharing <port> grouping <port_list> {algorithm [port-based | address-based
{L2 | L3 | L3_L4}]} {lacp | health-check}
The port you assign using the <port> parameter becomes the logical port for the link aggregation
group and the LAG Group ID when using Health Check link aggregation. This logical port must also
be included in the port list of the grouping itself.
2 Configure monitoring for each member port using the following command:
configure sharing health-check member-port <port> add tcp-tracking <IP Address>
{tcp-port <TCP Port> frequency <sec> misses <count>}
If the TCP-port, frequency, or misses are not specified, the defaults described in the ExtremeXOS
Command Reference Guide are used.
3 Add the LAG to a VLAN whose subnet is the same as the configured tracking IP addresses.
48
ExtremeXOS 12.1.4 Installation and Release Notes
Overview
configure vlan <vlan> add port <lag port> [tagged | untagged]
All of the tracking IP addresses must be in the same subnet in which the LAG belongs.
NOTE
VLANs to which Health Check LAG ports are to be added must be configured in loopback mode. This is to
prevent the vlan interface from going down if all ports are removed from the Health Check LAG. In a normal LAG
when all ports are removed from the aggregator, the trunk is considered DOWN. As a consequence, if this were
the only port in the VLAN, the VLAN interface would be brought DOWN as well. In the Health Check LAG
situation, this would cause the TCP monitoring to fail because the L3 vlan interface used by TCP monitoring
would no longer send or receive TCP data.
The following commands are used to modify the configured Health Check LAG.
1 Delete the monitoring configuration for a member port using the following command:
configure sharing health-check member-port <port> delete tcp-tracking <IP Address>
{tcp-port <TCP Port>}
2 Enable or disable monitoring for a member port in the Health Check LAG using the following
command:
configure sharing health-check member-port <port> [disable | enable] tcp-tracking
Health Check LAG Example
The following example creates a Health Check LAG of 4 ports:
create vlan v1
configure v1 ip 192.168.1.1/24
enable sharing 5 grouping 5-8 health-check
enable loopback-mode v1
configure v1 add port 5

Health Check Link Aggregation Commands
Following are CLI commands for Health Check Link Aggregation.
ExtremeXOS 12.1.4 Installation and Release Notes
49
Overview
configure sharing add ports
configure sharing <port> add ports <port_list>
Description
Adds ports to a load-sharing, or link aggregation, group. By using link aggregation, you use multiple
ports as a single logical port. Link aggregation also provides redundancy because traffic is redistributed
to the remaining ports in the link aggregation group (LAG) if one port in the group goes down.
Syntax Description
port
Specifies the logical port for a load-sharing group or link aggregation group
(LAG). This number also functions as the LAG Group ID.
port_list
Specifies one or more ports or slots and ports to be grouped in the LAG.
Default
N/A.
Usage Guidelines
NOTE
You must create a LAG (or load-sharing group) before you can configure the LAG. To create a LAG, see enable
sharing <port> grouping <port_list> {algorithm [port-based | address-based {L2 | L3
| L3_L4}]} {lacp | health-check}.
Use this command to dynamically add ports to a load-sharing group, or link aggregation group (LAG).
vMAN ports can belong to LAGs. If any port in the LAG is enabled for vMAN, all ports in the group
are automatically enabled to handle jumbo size frames. Also, vMAN is automatically enabled on all
ports of the untagged LAG.
To verify your configuration, use the show ports sharing command.
NOTE
All ports that are designated for the LAG must be removed from all VLANs prior to configuring the LAG.
Summit family of switches only (does not apply to SummitStack). The following guidelines apply to link
aggregation on the Summit family of switches:
50
●
One static LAG can contain up to 8 ports.
●
An LACP LAG can include a maximum of 16 ports; out of these up to 8 can be selected links and the
remaining 8 will be standby links.
●
A Health Check LAG can contain up to 8 ports.
ExtremeXOS 12.1.4 Installation and Release Notes
Overview
●
The default load-sharing algorithm is L2 address-based aggregation. Any broadcast, multicast, or
unknown unicast packets are transmitted differently depending on the device you are using.
■
On the Summit X450 series switches, these packets are transmitted on a single port of a LAG.
■
On the Summit X150, X250e, X350, X450a, X450e, and X650 series switches, these packets are
distributed across all members of a LAG.
●
The maximum number of LAGs is 32.
●
The available address-based parameters on the Summit family of switches are as follows:
■
Summit X450 series switches—L2 for Layer 2 and L3 for Layer 3. If the packet is not IP, the
switch applies the Layer 2 algorithm, which is the default setting.
■
Summit X150, X250e, X350, X450a, X450e, and X650 series switches—L2 for Layer 2, L3 for Layer
3, and L3_L4 for Layer 3/Layer 4.
NOTE
You cannot configure port-based load sharing algorithm on the Summit family of switches; you configure only
address-based load-sharing algorithms.
BlackDiamond 8800 series switch and SummitStack only. The following guidelines apply to link
aggregation on the BlackDiamond 8800 series switch:
●
A static LAG can include a maximum of 8 ports.
●
An LACP LAG can include a maximum of 16 ports; out of these up to 8 can be selected links and the
remaining 8 will be standby links.
●
A Health Check LAG can include a maximum of 8 ports.
●
Any broadcast, multicast, or unknown unicast packet is transmitted on a single port in the LAG.
NOTE
You cannot configure port-based load sharing algorithm on the BlackDiamond 8800 series switch and the Summit
family of switches; you configure only address-based load-sharing algorithms.
●
The available address-based parameters on the BlackDiamond 8800 series switch are L2 for Layer 2
and L3 for Layer 3. If the packet is not IP, the switch applies the Layer 2 algorithm, which is the
default setting.
●
Beginning with ExtremeXOS version 11.5 for the BlackDiamond 8800 series switches and
ExtremeXOS version 12.0 for SummitStack, the maximum number of LAGs is 128 unless a 10G4X
module is in use in a BlackDiamond 8800 series switch or a Summit X450-24t or X450-24x switch is
in the SummitStack, in which case the maximum number of LAGs is 32.
NOTE
You cannot configure more than 32 LAGs on a BlackDiamond 8800 chassis with a 10G4X module running or that
has a slot configured for the 10G4X module. You cannot configure more than 32 LAGs on a SummitStack that has a
Summit X450-24t or X450-24x or that has a slot configured for either model.
If you attempt to configure more than 32 LAGs on a BlackDiamond 8800 chassis that contains an
10G4X module or has a slot configured for the 10G4X module, the system displays the following
error message:
Error: Slot <slot_number> can support a maximum of 32 trunks
ExtremeXOS 12.1.4 Installation and Release Notes
51
Overview
If you want to configure more than 32 LAGs, it is not necessary to remove the 10G4X or
Summit X450 series module; however, you must both unconfigure the slot holding the module and
disable the slot holding that module or remove the module (the disable slot command is not
available on SummitStack). Use the following commands to unconfigure the slot and disable that
slot:
unconfigure slot and disable slot
If you attempt to insert a 10G4X module into a BlackDiamond 8800 chassis or a SummitStack with a
Summit X450 series module configured for more than 32 LAGs, the module fails the Init state with
log error messages at the warning level similar to the following:
04/07/1921 23:52:28.29 <Warn:DM.Warning> MSM-A: Slot-8 FAILED (1) Error Max Load
Share Groups Exceeded(-48) from HAL on CardExec INIT(5) for slot
04/07/1921 23:52:28.29 <Warn:DM.Warning> MSM-A: Error Max Load Share Groups
Exceeded(-48) from HAL on CardExec INIT(5) for slot 8
Once you configure more than 32 LAGs, the module will not initialize even if you reduce the
number of LAGs to 32; you must reboot the system or SummitStack first. The system logs an error
message at the error level similar to the following when you must reduce the system (even if you
reduced the number of LAGs to 32):
04/07/1921 23:52:28.29 <Erro:HAL.Card.Error> MSM-A: Slot 8 is not supported when
more than 32 load share groups have previously been configured. A system reboot
is required to clear this condition.
BlackDiamond 10808 switch, BlackDiamond 12800 and 20808 series switches only. The following
guidelines apply to LAGs on the BlackDiamond 10808, 12800, and 20808 series switches:
●
A static LAG can include a maximum 16 ports.
●
An LACP LAG can include a maximum of 32 ports; out of these up to 16 can be selected links and
the remaining 16 will be standby links.
●
A Health Check LAG can include a maximum of 16 ports.
●
The maximum number of LAGs is 128.
●
If you do not explicitly select an algorithm, the port-based scheme is used. However, the addressbased algorithm has a more even distribution and is the recommended choice.
NOTE
You must use the configure sharing address-based command to configure address-based load sharing on
the BlackDiamond 10808, BlackDiamond 12800, and BlackDiamond 20808 series switches.
Example
The following example adds port 3:13 to the LAG with the logical port 3:9 on a modular switch:
configure sharing 3:9 add port 3:13

Overview
enable sharing grouping
enable sharing <port> grouping <port_list> {algorithm [port-based |
address-based {L2 | L3 | L3_L4}]} {lacp | health-check}
Description
Enables the switch to configure port link aggregation, or load sharing. By using link aggregation, you
use multiple ports as a single logical port. Link aggregation also provides redundancy because traffic is
redistributed to the remaining ports in the LAG if one port in the group goes down. LACP allows the
system to dynamically configure the LAGs.
Syntax Description
port
Specifies the master logical port for a load-sharing group or link aggregation group (LAG).
port_list
Specifies one or more ports or slots and ports to be grouped to the logical port.
port-based
Specifies link aggregation by port-based algorithm.
NOTE: This parameter is available only on the BlackDiamond 10808 and the BlackDiamond
12800 series switches.
address-based
Specifies link aggregation by address-based algorithm.
L2
Specifies address-based link aggregation by Layer 2. This is the default value.
NOTE: This parameter is available only on the BlackDiamond 8800 series switch,
SummitStack, and the Summit family of switches.
L3
Specifies address-based link aggregation by Layer 3.
NOTE: This parameter is available only on the BlackDiamond 8800 series switch,
SummitStack, and the Summit X450 series switch.
L3_L4
Specifies address-based link aggregation by Layer 3 IP plus Layer 4 port.
NOTE: This parameter is available only on the BlackDiamond 8000 a-series, c-series, and eseries modules and the Summit X250e, X450a, X450e, and X650 series switches (whether
or not included in a SummitStack.
lacp
Specifies dynamic link aggregation, or load sharing, using the LACP.
health-check
Specifies a health check type of link aggregation group.
Default
Disabled.
Usage Guidelines
Link aggregation, or load sharing, allows you to increase bandwidth and availability between switches
by using a group of ports to carry traffic in parallel between switches. The aggregation algorithm allows
the switch to use multiple ports as a single logical port. For example, VLANs see the link aggregation
group (LAG) as a single logical port. Groups can span multiple modules.
NOTE
All ports that are designated for the LAG must be removed from all VLANs prior to configuring the LAG.
ExtremeXOS 12.1.4 Installation and Release Notes
57
Overview
You can enable and configure dynamic link aggregation, using LACP or health-check link aggregation.
Static link aggregation is the default link aggregation method.
NOTE
Always verify the LACP configuration by issuing the show ports sharing command; look for the ports listed as
being in the aggregator.
If a port in a LAG fails, traffic is redistributed to the remaining ports in the LAG. If the failed port
becomes active again, traffic is redistributed to include that port.
Link aggregation must be enabled on both ends of the link, or a network loop will result.
NOTE
See ExtremeXOS Concepts Guide for information on the interaction of port-based ACLs and LAGs of ports.
Modular switch LAGs are defined according to the following rules:
●
Although you can reference only the logical port of a LAG to a Spanning Tree Domain (STPD), all the
ports of a load-sharing group actually belong to the specified STPD.
●
When using link aggregation, you should always reference the logical port of the LAG when
configuring or viewing VLANs. VLANs configured to use other ports in the LAG will have those
ports deleted from the VLAN when link aggregation becomes enabled.
Link aggregation, or load-sharing, algorithms allow you to select the distribution technique used by the
LAG to determine the output port selection. Algorithm selection is not intended for use in predictive
traffic engineering.
●
Port-based—Uses the ingress port to determine which physical port in the LAG is used to forward
traffic out of the switch.
●
Address-based—Uses addressing information to determine which physical port in the LAG to use
for forwarding traffic out of the switch. Refer to configure sharing address-based for more
information on using addressing information.
Summit X250e, X450a, X450e, and X650 series switches and SummitStack only. The following guidelines
apply to link aggregation on the Summit X250e, X450a, X450e, and X650 series switches:
58
●
One static LAG can contain up to 8 ports.
●
An LACP LAG can include a maximum of 16 ports; out of these up to 8 can be selected links and the
remaining 8 will be standby links.
●
A Health Check LAG can contain up to 8 ports.
●
The maximum number of LAGs is 128.
●
The default load-sharing algorithm is L2 address-based aggregation. Any broadcast, multicast, or
unknown unicast packet is distributed across all members in the LAG.
●
The available address-based parameters on the Summit X250e, X450a, X450e, and X650 series
switches are L2 for Layer 2 and L3_L4 for Layer 3 plus Layer 4. If the packet is not IP, the switch
applies the Layer 2 algorithm, which is the default setting.
●
Beginning with ExtremeXOS version 12.0, the maximum number of LAGs in a SummitStack is 128
unless an original X450 series module is in use in the stack, in which case the maximum number of
LAGs is 32.

and L3 for Layer 3.
If the packet is not IP, the switch applies the Layer 2 algorithm, which is the default setting.
Beginning with ExtremeXOS software version 11.2, the switch can use IPv6 addresses.
●
The maximum number of LAGs is 32.
●
Broadcast, multicast, or unknown unicast packets are transmitted differently depending on the
device you are using:
■
On the BlackDiamond 8800 original-series modules, these packets are transmitted on a single port
of a LAG.
■
On the BlackDiamond 8000 a-series, c-series, and e-series modules, these packets are distributed
across all members of a LAG. The distribution of these packets depends on the type of the traffic.
Broadcast, L2 multicast and unknown unicast traffic distribution is based on the source and

destination MAC addresses. IP multicast traffic distribution is based on the source and
destination IP addresses. This behavior is not configurable.
●
Beginning with ExtremeXOS version 11.5, the maximum number of LAGs is 128 unless a 10G4X
module is in use in the chassis, in which case the maximum number of LAGs is 32.
NOTE
You cannot configure more than 32 LAGs on a BlackDiamond 8800 chassis with a 10G4X module running or that
has a slot configured for the 10G4X module.
The following switch configurations support 32 LAGs:
■
A BlackDiamond 8800 switch that contains an 10G4X module or has a slot configured for the
10G4X module
■
A SummitStack that contains an original Summit X450 switch or has a slot configured for the
X450 switch
If you attempt to configure more than 32 LAGs on a switch or stack that does not support larger
configurations, the system displays the following error message:
Error: Slot <slot_number> can support a maximum of 32 trunks
If you want to configure more than 32 LAGs on a BlackDiamond 8800 switch, it is not necessary to
remove the 10G4X module; however, you must both unconfigure the slot holding the 10G4X module
and disable the slot holding that module or remove the 10G4X module. Use the following commands
to unconfigure the slot and disable that slot:
unconfigure slot and disable slot
If you want to configure more than 32 LAGs on a SummitStack, you must remove all original
Summit X450 switches from the active topology.
If you attempt to insert a 10G4X module into a BlackDiamond 8800 chassis configured for more than
32 LAGs, or if you attempt to add an original X450 module into a SummitStack with more than 32
LAGs, the module fails the Init state with log error messages at the warning level similar to the
following:
04/07/1921 23:52:28.29 <Warn:DM.Warning> MSM-A: Slot-8 FAILED (1) Error Max Load Share

04/07/1921 23:52:28.29 <Warn:DM.Warning> MSM-A: Error Max Load Share Groups Exceeded(48) from HAL on CardExec INIT(5) for slot 8
Once you configure more than 32 LAGs on a BlackDiamond 8800 chassis or SummitStack, the 10G4X
or original Summit X450 series module will not initialize even if you reduce the number of LAGs to
32; you must reboot the system or stack first. The system logs an error message at the error level

Example
The following example defines a static link aggregation group (LAG) on a modular switch that contains
ports 9 through 12 on slot 3, ports 7 through 10 on slot 5, and uses the first port on slot 3 as the logical
port 9 on a modular switch:
enable sharing 3:9 grouping 3:9-3:12, 5:7-5:10
In this example, logical port 3:9 represents physical ports 3:9 through 3:12 and 5:7 through 5:10.
The following example defines a dynamic LAG on a stand-alone switch containing ports 10 through 15,
with port 10 being the logical port:
enable sharing 10 grouping 10-15 lacp
The following example defines a health check LAG containing ports 10 through 13 with port 10 as the
master logical port and specifies address-based link aggregation by Layer 3 IP plus Layer 4 port:
enable sharing 10 grouping 10,11,12,13 algorithm address L3_L4 health-check
To configure a health-check LAG, refer to the configure sharing health-check member-port add

Upgrading ExtremeXOS
Upgrading your current ExtremeXOS installation to ExtremeXOS version 12.1 is a multistep process. In
this section is a quick summary of the necessary steps, followed by detailed instructions.
NOTE
Hitless upgrade from ExtremeXOS 12.0 and earlier to ExtremeXOS 12.1 and later is not supported on the
BlackDiamond 12800 switch.
NOTE
Hitless upgrade for network login is not supported when upgrading from an earlier version of ExtremeXOS software to
ExtremeXOS 12.1 or later. If a hitless upgrade is required, you must globally disable network login and re-enable it
when the upgrade is complete.
NOTE
See the “Hitless Upgrade Caveats for BlackDiamond 8800 Series Switches Only” in the ExtremeXOS Concepts
Guide for an important caution about performing an MSM failover.
ExtremeXOS 12.1.4 Installation and Release Notes
97
Upgrading to ExtremeXOS 12.1
NOTE
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.
NOTE
With ExtremeXOS 12.1.3, the BlackDiamond 8800 series switches and the BlackDiamond 12800 series switches
now require a firmware upgrade along with the standard software upgrade.
NOTE
A "Failed to install image" error occurs when trying to upgrade from ExtremeXOS 11.2.1 images to ExtremeXOS 11.6
or later. To upgrade to ExtremeXOS 12.1, you must currently be running ExtremeXOS 11.6 or later. If you are not
running 11.6 or later you must first upgrade to ExtremeXOS 11.6 and then upgrade to ExtremeXOS 12.1.
Quick Summary
To install and upgrade to ExtremeXOS 12.1 on your system, you will be following these steps:
1 Download the image to your TFTP server.
2 Verify which virtual router connects to your TFTP server.
3 Save your configuration to a backup configuration file.
4 Determine your selected and booted image partitions.
5 Select the download partition and partition to use on reboot.
6 Download and install the image to the switch.
7 Reboot the switch.
8 Save the configuration for the new image.
9 Upgrade the BootROM—BlackDiamond 10808 switch only.
10 Upgrade the BootROM and PSU controller firmware--BlackDiamond 8800 family of switches only.
11 Upgrade the BootROM and PSU controller firmware--BlackDiamond 12804 family of switches only.
NOTE
If you have a dual MSM system, and the software image is not the same on both MSMs, see the section “Dual MSM
Systems with Different Images Present” on page 108.

ExtremeXOS 12.1.4 Installation and Release Notes
Upgrading to ExtremeXOS 12.1
Detailed Steps
NOTE
Extreme Networks recommends using a TFTP server that supports blocksize negotiation (per RFC-2348). Using this
type of server enables the switch to download the images faster.
To upgrade to ExtremeXOS 12.1 on your system, follow these steps:
1 Download the image to your TFTP server.
Download the image you received from Extreme Networks to your TFTP server.
2 Verify which virtual router connects to your TFTP server.
Use the following ping commands to test which virtual router you will need to specify when you
download the image to your switch. This example assumes that your TFTP server’s IP address is
192.168.0.12; substitute your own address when you run the command:
ping vr vr-mgmt 192.168.0.12
ping vr vr-default 192.168.0.12
At least one of these commands must successfully reach your TFTP server for you to download the
image. When you download the image in step 6, specify the virtual router that allowed you to reach
your TFTP server.
3 Save your configuration to a backup configuration file.
You must save your configuration to a backup configuration file, or you will be unable to revert to
your currently running image, if the need arises. In this example, we use the software version
number as part of the name. Use the following command to save the configuration to the file
version11_6_1_7.cfg:
save configuration version11_6_1_7
As an optional, extra precaution, we suggest that you save this configuration to a TFTP server. Use
the tftp command to save your configuration. In the following example, the TFTP server’s IP
address is 192.168.0.12, the virtual router determined in step 2 is vr-mgmt, and the configuration file
is version11_6_1_7.cfg:
tftp 192.168.0.12 -v vr-mgmt -p -l version11_6_1_7.cfg
4 Determine your selected and booted image partitions.
Run the show switch command to determine your current selected and booted image partitions.
The selected image partition indicates which image will be used at the next reboot. The booted
image partition indicates which image was used at the last reboot.
Output from this command includes the version of the selected and booted images and if they are in
the primary or the secondary partition. In this example, the selected and booted images are in the
primary partition.
...

Image Booted:
Primary ver:
Secondary ver:

Specify the partition by issuing the following command:
ExtremeXOS 12.1.4 Installation and Release Notes

Upgrading to ExtremeXOS 12.1
use image pri
OR
use image sec
6 Download and install the image to the switch.
Download and install the image to the switch using the download image command. The virtual
router <vr> that you will use is the one you determined in step 2. This example assumes that you
are using virtual router vr-mgmt and TFTP server 192.168.0.12. Substitute your own virtual router
and IP address when you run the command:
download image 192.168.0.12 bd10k-12.1.3.xos vr vr-mgmt
(This may not be the actual filename; it is just an example.)
You will be asked:
Do you want to install image after downloading ? (y—yes, n—no, <cr>—cancel)
Answer y, for yes, so that the image will be installed after downloading.
7 Reboot the switch.
Use the reboot command to reboot the switch.
NOTE
For the BlackDiamond 8800 series of switches—You will be prompted to upgrade the BootROM on the
BlackDiamond 8800 series of switches when installing the ExtremeXOS image. If you answer "y" for yes after the
prompt and install the image after downloading, you will also be prompted to install the new BootROM during
the installation process before the switch reboots.
8 Save the configuration for the new image.
Even though your configuration was saved before you rebooted, you will need to save the
configuration with the new image. If you wait to login for some time after the reboot, you will
receive a notice that recommends that you save the configuration. If you login soon after the reboot,
you will not receive the notice, although an asterisk (*) will appear before the command prompt,
indicating that the current configuration is not saved. In either case, save the configuration with the
command:
save configuration
9 Upgrade the BootROM—BlackDiamond 10808 switch only.
Extreme Networks recommends that you upgrade to the latest BootROM for the
BlackDiamond 10808. While not strictly required for this release, it is highly recommended. Run the
show version command to verify the BootROM version currently running on your switch. If you
are not running BootROM version 1.0.1.5 or later, upgrade the BootROM using the following
command:
download bootrom 192.168.0.12 bd10k-1.0.1.5-bootrom.xbr
This example assumes that you will use the same TFTP server and virtual router as in step 6 above.
You will be asked if you want to install the BootROM after downloading. Answer yes, or use the
install bootrom command to install later. Once the BootROM is downloaded and installed, it
replaces the previous image stored in the onboard FLASH memory, and will be used at the next
reboot.
10 Upgrade the BootROM and PSU controller firmware--BlackDiamond 8800 family of switches only.

ExtremeXOS.
ExtremeXOS 12.1.4 Installation and Release Notes
101
Upgrading to ExtremeXOS 12.1
This release of ExtremeXOS contains the following versions of the BootROM and firmware:
MSM Bootloader
1.0.0.3
First available in ExtremeXOS 11.4.1.4
PSU controller firmware
2.13
First available in ExtremeXOS 11.4.1.4
Use the show version command to display the versions of the BootROM and firmware currently
installed.
NOTE
For single MSM systems, reboot the switch using the reboot command after the firmware installation is complete.
To install the new BootROM and firmware, wait until the show slot command indicates the MSMs
and I/O modules are operational. Then use the install firmware command. This command will
install the BootROMs and/or firmware only on modules that have older BootROMs or firmware
installed. Once this installation is complete, reboot the switch using the reboot command.
NOTE
For dual MSM systems, the install firmware command cannot install all the necessary software while the MSM
is primary. To completely install the firmware, an MSM failover is required. First, run the install firmware
command on the primary MSM. When the installation is complete, run the run msm-failover command to allow
the switch to failover to the secondary MSM. Run the install firmware command on the new primary MSM. To
revert back to your original primary MSM, run the run msm-failover command. Because two failovers are
required for a dual-MSM firmware installation, you will not need to run the reboot command after executing the
install firmware procedure.
NOTE
Upgrading a BlackDiamond 12804 slot can take a minimum of six minutes per slot.

2 Use the management VLAN virtual router to connect to your TFTP server by configuring an IP
address on the management VLAN using the following command:
configure mgmt ipaddress 192.168.1.134/24
Enter a default gateway using the following command:
configure iproute add default 10.201.1.1 vr “VR-Mgmt”
NOTE
The default VLAN has no ports because it does not recognize the chassis.
3 Test which virtual router you will need to specify when you download the image to your switch by
using the following command and your own IP address:
ping vr vr-mgmt 192.168.0.12
This command must successfully reach your TFTP server in order to download the image.
4 Download and install the image to the switch using the following command:
download image 192.168.0.12 bd12k-12.1.4.xos vr vr-mgmt
5 When the switch returns the following message:
Do you want to install image after downloading ? (y–yes, n–no, <cr>–cancel)
Answer “y” to install the image after downloading.
6 Use the reboot command to reboot the switch.
7 Run the show switch command. Verify that the SysName and System Type read BD-12802, and that
the image is specified as 12.1.4.

Upgrading a BlackDiamond Series of Switches Using Hitless
Upgrade
NOTE
You must be running ExtremeXOS 11.1.1.9 or later to use hitless upgrade on a BlackDiamond 10808 switch.
NOTE
For the BlackDiamond 8800 series of switches, a hitless upgrade to ExtremeXOS 12.1.1 from an earlier release is
not supported. Use the normal software upgrade process for these switches.
Upgrading the Alternate Partition Using Hitless Upgrade
Performing a hitless upgrade on the alternate partition allows you to revert to the previous image in
case the upgrade is not successful. Upgrade the alternate partition using hitless upgrade as follows:
1
Run the show switch command to determine which partition is the active partition and which
partition is the alternate partition.
2 In the following example, the secondary image is the active partition. The download is performed on
the primary image.
Execute the CLI command download image 10.201.14.13 bd12k-12.1.4.xos primary
* BD-12804.8 # download image 10.201.13.14 bd12k-12.1.4.xos primary
Do you want to install image after downloading? (y - yes, n - no, <cr> - cancel)
Yes
3 When the download is complete, run the show switch command to confirm the new image
downloaded to the primary image.

Dual MSM Systems with Different Images Present
If you have a dual MSM system that has different images on the MSMs, you will need to modify the
upgrade procedure. One situation where you might have different images installed is when you add an
MSM that has been in storage to your chassis, either for the first time, or as a replacement. You will
only need to do the following procedure if one of the MSMs is running an image earlier than 11.0.0, and
the images are different on the two MSMs (earlier versions of the software are unable to automatically
synch up the configurations).
Follow the directions for upgrading the switch, and continue with step 6. When you download the
image, as described in step 6, Download and install the image to the switch., you will be asked:
Do you want to install image after downloading ? (y—yes, n—no, <cr>—cancel)
108
ExtremeXOS 12.1.4 Installation and Release Notes
Upgrading to ExtremeXOS 12.1
Answer n, for no, so that the image will not be installed after downloading.
Next, manually install the image, using the following command:
install image bd10k-12.1.4.xos
Now the two MSMs have the same image installed, but may not have the same configurations. Reboot
the secondary MSM using one of the following commands:
reboot msm b (if you are running on MSM A)
reboot msm a (if you are running on MSM B)
Finally, save the configuration on both MSMs by using the command
save configuration
Using a Rev 10 (or later) BlackDiamond 10808 MSM-1 or
MSM-1XL
NOTE
To use a Rev 10 (or later) MSM-1 or MSM-1XL module, you must upgrade both the active and alternate
images with the latest ExtremeWare 11.1.3 (or later) software image.
To determine which version of MSM you have installed in your switch, use the show version
command.
If you have a Rev 9 (or earlier) MSM, the show version command output will look like this:
MSM-A :804015-00-09 0414F-00728 Rev 9.0 BootROM: 1.0.1.5 IMG:
If you have a Rev 10 (or later) MSM, the show version command output will look like this:

Upgrading to ExtremeXOS 12.1
Installing an ExtremeXOS Module
An ExtremeXOS module has functionality that supplements a core image. You will download and
install a module onto an already installed core image. The version number of the core image and the
module must match. For example, the module bd10k-12.1.4-ssh.xmod can only be installed onto the core
image bd10k-12.1.4.xos.
You can download and install the SSH module.
NOTE
You must terminate and restart the thttpd process before you can use SSL.
Assuming that you have an installed and running ExtremeXOS 12.1 software on the active partition,
follow these steps to install the module:
1 Download the module image to your TFTP server.
Download the image you received from Extreme Networks to your TFTP server.
2 Determine the active partition for your switch.
Run the show switch command to determine your current selected and booted image partitions.
The booted image partition indicates the currently active partition.
3 Download and install the module image to the active partition.
Download the image to the switch using the download image command. The filename for the only
available module image is bd10k-12.1.4-ssh.xmod.
The virtual router <vr> that you will use is the one that connects to your TFTP server (you
determined this in step 2, “Verify which virtual router connects to your TFTP server.” in the
upgrade procedure). Since the system virtual router names changed from release 10.1.2.17 to 11.2.3.3,
the name will be different from that used to download the initial upgrade image. Use vr-mgmt for
this step or vr-default.
This example assumes that you are using virtual router vr-mgmt and TFTP server 192.168.0.12,
substitute your own virtual router and IP address when you run the command:
download image 192.168.0.12 bd10k-12.1.4-ssh.xmod vr vr-mgmt <partition> (primary
or secondary)
You will be asked:
Do you want to install image after downloading? (y - yes, n - no, <cr> - cancel)
Answer y, for yes, so that the image will be installed after downloading.
4 Run the run update command.
Run the following command:
run update
The run update command starts up the processes associated with the new module, and makes them
available to the system. You should now be able to run the commands associated with SSH2.
You can verify that the SSH2 module is running by issuing the following command:
show process
If SSH2 is running, you will see a process named exsshd listed. You can then configure and enable
SSH2 on the switch.
110
ExtremeXOS 12.1.4 Installation and Release Notes
Upgrading to ExtremeXOS 12.1
You can also verify that the SSH2 module is installed by issuing the following command:
show management
If the SSH module is installed, you will see text similar to the following:
SSH access : Disabled (Key invalid, tcp port 22 vr all)
If the SSH module is not installed, you will see text similar to the following:
SSH Access : ssh module not loaded.
Uninstalling an SSH Module
To uninstall the SSH module you must first terminate the THTTPD process:
1 Run the terminate process thttpd graceful command. This terminates the THTTPD process.
2 Run the uninstall image bd10k-12.1.4-ssh.xmod <partition> (primary or secondary)
command. This uninstalls SSH from your switch.
3 Restart the thttpd process using the start process thttpd command.
Downgrading Switches
Following are the instructions for downgrading your ExtremeXOS version 12.1.4 installation to a
previous version. It is assumed that you saved your configuration using the 11.4.1 image, and that the
11.4.1 image is currently installed on the switch, on the non-booted partition.
NOTE
Do not downgrade a BlackDiamond 8810 switch to an image earlier than 11.1.1 or a Summit X450 switch to an
image earlier than 11.2.1. Do not downgrade a BlackDiamond 8806 switch to an image earlier than 11.3.1.3. Do
not downgrade a Summit X450a or X450e switch to an ExtremeXOS image earlier than 11.5.1.
To downgrade to the existing ExtremeXOS version 11.4.1 image on your system, you will be following
these steps:
1 Determine your selected and booted image partitions.
Run the show switch command to determine your current selected and booted image partitions.
The selected image partition indicates which image will be used at the next reboot. The booted
image partition indicates which image was used at the last reboot.
Output from this command includes the version of the selected and booted images and if they are in
the primary or the secondary partition. In this example, the selected and booted images are in the
secondary partition.

2 Select the reboot partition.
Assuming that the 11.4.1 image is on the non-booted partition, if you are currently running the
image booted from the primary partition, run this command:
use image secondary
If you are currently running the image booted from the secondary partition, run this command:
use image primary
3 Select the reboot configuration.
Select the configuration to be used after reboot with the use configuration command. Assuming
you saved the 11.4.1 configuration as bdversion11_4_1_4.cfg, use the following command:
use configuration bdversion11_4_1_4
4 Verify the image and configuration selection.
Again, run the show switch command. The output should show that the selected image is the 11.4.1
image that you are downgrading to, and the selected configuration is the one you saved before you
installed the 12.1.4 image:
...

Limits
This chapter summarizes the supported limits in ExtremeXOS 12.1.4.
Supported Limits
Table 31 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 scaling and performance information shown in Table 31 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 31 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 a BlackDiamond 8800 or a Summit X450 or X250e switch, it is not advised to have greater than 25,000 total
IP routes from all routing protocols. 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. Applies only if all enabled BlackDiamond I/O modules are BlackDiamond 8800 c-series modules.

Summit X450a and Summit X450e series switches and BlackDiamond 8800 a-series
and e-series Modules: Boot Time and Timing for Applying ACLs
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
1024 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
1024 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.

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.

Enabling "LDP advertise static all" Removes Ingress LSPs Using Static Routes
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

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.

port speed and duplex settings. Using ExtremeXOS, you can configure a preferred speed,
for example, 1,000, and enable autonegotiation for the duplex settings. Using ScreenPlay,
you can only enable or disable autonegotiation without configuring a preferred speed.

New Backup MSM Reboots Twice after Failover
A new backup MSM reboots twice after failover (run MSM-failover). The backup MSM
initially comes up correctly but is not in the "In SYNC" state. The MSM then reboots
without a core and comes up "In Sync" on a BlackDiamond 8800.
This problem does not occur consistently and should not affect data transmission. It is
recommended that you disable the notify function in the disable ip-security
anomaly-protection notify <log | cache | snmp> command to avoid potential
problems.

DHCP Packets are Not Relayed if “dhcp-snooping violation-action” is Set to None
When DHCP snooping is enabled on a port in a VLAN in monitoring only mode (that is,
with the violation-action option set to none) and the switch is acting as a BOOTP relay,
DHCP packets are not relayed from the DHCP server on that port. As a workaround, the
port can be configured as a trusted-port (trusted for DHCP server packets) with DHCP
snooping enabled with a violation-action of drop-packet instead of none. This works the
same as setting the violation-action to none viz. The DHCP bindings database is built up
by monitoring DHCP traffic but no rogue DHCP server traffic on that port is dropped.

AAA Services Do Not Become Available on Stacking Switch that has a Mismatched
License
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.

After a SummitStack failover, the new master node is not reachable using an alternate IP
address or gateway.
ACL
PD4-556797775

not just the one associated with port x.
PD4-641467077
The telnetd process crashes with signal 11 when the same policy file is used in a telnet
access-profile and an ACL.
PD4-738207292
Access-profile configurations for SNMP and SSH modules are not available in the show
configuration command output.
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 ingess 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.
PD4-757850193,
PD4-569838439
Packets that need to be L2 switched are not egressing if the packets hit the IPv4 ACL
containing a redirect action.
This fix requires a regular upgrade on a BlackDiamond 12804 switch. It will not work if you
attempt a hitless upgrade on the BlackDiamond 12804 switch.

A border gateway protocol (BGP) route can point to the wrong next-hop in a route table
when a default route is also learned by way of BGP in another scenario.
PD4-490592183
A BGP process crash occurs when a BGP update message is received with an as-path
extended length flag set.
IGMP
PD4-415829237,
PD3-169760051
Sending an IGMP report on a port with an address reserved for multicast DNS causes the
port to become a router port, resulting in all multicast traffic being forwarded on that port in
a VLAN.
PD4-646173339,
PD4-634273041
When an ExtremeXOS switch receives bursty IP multicast traffic, IGMP snooping entries for
some of the multicast streams are not created. Because of this, those IP multicast streams
are not egressing the switch, resulting in traffic loss.
Network Login

PD4-597319891
A memory leak occurs in process “xmld” after a user logs in and logs out of a switch using
ScreenPlay.
sFlow
PD4-446885634
sFlow samples every unicast and multicast packet received on sFlow-enabled ports after
CPU throttling sets the sampling rate to a maximum of 536870912.
PD4-486083706
When sFlow is enabled on a port, the incoming Virtual Router Redundancy Protocol (VRRP)
announcements on that port are dropped causing dual VRRP masters on the attached
switches. The sFlow counters increase when enabled, but the VRRP advertisements do not
arrive at the other end.
SNMP
PD4-453123705
When performing an SNMPwalk for extremeMemoryMonitorSystemTable on MSM-B after an
MSM failover, the switch always returns the value set for MSM-A.

to two different VLANs.
PD3-179276997
Running the show ports information and show ports configuration
commands on a Summit switch that does not include an XGM2 option card erroneously
displays the ports on the card as available and enabled.
ACL
PD3-28320337
MAC and IP MAC entries are being allowed in the same IPv6 ACL rule entry. L2 and L3/L4
rules should not be allowed in one entry; this should fail the grammar check but does not.
PD3-55929951,
PD3-41829516
The keyword icmp-type timestamp when used in an ACL policy match condition does
not work. Using the ICMP number code instead of the keyword works correctly (icmp-type
13).
PD3-28320337
MAC and IP MAC entries are being allowed in the same IPv6 ACL rule entry. L2 and L3/L4
rules should not be allowed in one entry; this should fail the grammar check but does not.
PD3-42872248
Creating dynamic ACLs using the operands “<“ or “<=” results in an error. Use “lt” and
“lte” instead.
PD3-42447111,
PD3-166801770
The ACL action mirror-cpu and log do not work.
PD3-56605924
Multiple egress vMAN ACL rules with identical IF-conditions but different egress ports
cannot be distinguished. Packets are going to be forwarded based on only one of the
applicable rules.
BGP
PD3-41952658
BGP traps transmitted from a BlackDiamond or Summit X450 switch are missing the peer
IP addresses.
CLEAR-Flow
PD3-95652911,
PD3-95652994
When using the show clear-flow command, RL is not included in the Threshold Type
with CN, DT, and DR.
Control Protocols
PD3-84477402,
PD3-75421071
When creating a CIST domain and then configuring the link-type as point-to-point for CIST,
the link-type configuration is lost when the uploaded configuration is downloaded.

EAPS
PD3-176462601
EAPS takes approximately 120 milliseconds to 160 milliseconds to recover after restoring a
link failure.
PD3-86015057
The following error message is displayed in the log when disabling port sharing on ring
ports:
08/01/2006 19:49:32.55 <Crit:vlan.err.criticalInfo> Critical Info:
handleVMngrProtoIfSetState procName:eaps protolId:0x80 not

egress:0x1 dereg:0 (0 of 50)s
PD3-86015166
When LACP is enabled on a link between two switches, when disabling port sharing, the
following warning is displayed in the log for each of the protected VLANs:
08/02/2006 12:20:31.36 <Warn:EAPS.SharedPort.SegPortWarning> EAPS
Shared-port 4, Segment-port 4 - No vPif for vlan pv24
PD3-96983520
Changing the EAPS shared port link ID of a partner/controller pair while there is a failure in
the EAPS network is not recommended and may cause a loop in the network.
PD3-131018386
After changing the root blocker and partner IDs, the displayed root blocker ID toggles
between the original and the changed IDs.
PD3-135517703,
PD3-87003427,
PD3-78960443,
PD3-78302829
Configurations having three shared links, where the shared link with the lowest ID is in the
middle, the root blocker marks the segment as "blocking-down," but the ports are not in a
blocked state.
To get out of the loop, restore the shared links. To avoid encountering this condition, insure
that no more than two shared links become disabled.
IP Unicast
PD3-192315271,
PD3-182815070
When a switch is configured for proxy ARP with the always keyword, the switch will not
respond to a gratuitous ARP request, it will only respond to ARP requests.
MPLS
PD3-167174547
The command output for the show vpls peer detail command does not show the
peer flags.
PD3-114261166
Port flapping, and other problems, can cause logs similar to the following when 802.1Q
tagged packets are software forwarded for a VPLS service VLAN:
12/15/2006 08:11:40.67 <Erro:Kern.Error> MSM-A:
nettx_vpls_transmit.(987) VPLS - problems determining .1q tag for
encapsulated packet.
The logs are the result of other problems such as port flapping and will no longer appear
when the other problems are corrected.
PD3-117148339
Enabling or disabling penultimate hop popping on a VLAN does not work if MPLS is
enabled.
PD3-169466471
The show fdb vpls <vpls_name> command shows the entire FDB entry.
PD3-179426902,
PD3-188166267,
PD3-177361681
Existing MPLS forwarding data is not installed on newly inserted BlackDiamond 12800
series switches, which can cause problems when receiving and transmitting MPLS packets
on those I/O modules.
Workaround: Disable and enable MPLS.

PD3-135927701
The show vpls detail command does not display the updated counters (RX Pkt and RX
Bytes) when using “q” to quit. The counters are updated after running the complete
command.
PD3-88153931
The ExtremeXOS route table and kernel route table show that an LSP next hop for a specific
route is available. However, when ping or traceroute commands are run for a
destination reached by the route, the LSP next hop may not be used.

Description
Network Services
PD3-42385251,
When creating a large policy file on a BlackDiamond 10808 switch and applying the policy
to a VLAN on egress, if traffic is sent that attempts to hit the ACL rules, and the next hop
ARP entry is not yet learned, the MSMs may stop responding.
vMAN
PD3-203983381
In ExtremeXOS 12.0.3, when a BVLAN tag is changed, a packet egressing the BVLAN does
not reflect the changed tag. Packets still egress the BVLAN using the original tag. This
problem applies to all vMANs (create vman, create bvlan, and so on) and occurs only if the
BVLAN tag is changed and the BVLAN contains ports. This does not apply to a BVLAN that
is created without any ports.
Workaround: Save the configuration and reboot the system.
Resolved Issues in ExtremeXOS 12.1.0.29
