XMR Software Upgrade Path from 4.0.1a

Hi,

we have some XMRs in production, all with the older 4.0.1a code. The
Systems are doing mainly L3 things like OSPF, BGP and VRRP within an
IPv4/IPv6 dualstack environment but no *PLS or special L2 services at
the moment.
We plan to upgrade the systems with an newer software release and I
wondering if there exist any arguments against using the latest 5.1 code?

Cheers,
--

Re: XMR Software Upgrade Path from 4.0.1a [In reply to]

I believe your IronWare upgrade to 5.0 will have to include upgrading FPGA images as well:

Mgmt Modules:
- Requires MBRIDGE, Rev 32

Interface Modules:
- PBIFSP2.bin, Rev 3.21
- XPPSP2.bin, Rev 6.03

Re: XMR Software Upgrade Path from 4.0.1a [In reply to]

Hi Chris,

yes, looks like that I have to upgrade the FPGAs as well. But I'm a
little bit more interested in opinions concerning the 5.1 software in
general. How does it feel in the real - does anybody use this train in
production currently at all?

The main reason for the decision to upgrade our systems is that we
observed some (rare) FIB issues in the past, e.g. "IPv4/Pv6 route exist
but no corresponding record is in th FIB" or the other way around - we
saw "records in the FIB without a matching IPv4/IPv6 route".

I've checked nearly all release notes since 4.0.1a and every notes for a
newer version has make think "oh my good, don't use the former one" and
so I'm simply end up in 5.1 ;-).

Re: XMR Software Upgrade Path from 4.0.1a [In reply to]

We use 5.0 and are planning to upgrade to 5.1 soon-ish. The main
reason is the "cross chassis trunking" or MCT (like Arista's mLAG).
Basically you can do what amounts to stacking MLX/XMR units. We
wanted that code version to get some mileage on it first and wanted to
wait until there were a couple of bugfix releases. They are at
5.1.00b currently though I don't know how many are using the MCT
function so can't get a feel for how much that feature has been
exercised.

The data center where we need to deploy that was actually engineered
with that feature in mind. The topology is pretty close to that shown
in Fig. 1 on page 3 of this document:

http://www.brocade.com/downloads/documents/white_papers/Brocade_Multi-Chassis_Trunking_WP.pdf

Except we use Arista 7100 switches instead of the CES shown (basically
because the 7100's are 10G switches and the Brocade TurboIron doesn't
support MCT).

Is anyone here using the MCT feature on MLX/XMR ?

We just deployed our first pair of CES switches using MCT and they're
running great so far. They're doing OSPF, VRRPE, etc - however no BGP.

We'll be deploying a pair of core level MLX's using MCT (along with
pairs of CES's also running MCT) sometime this month. Our testing has
been quite positive with even some better than expected behaviour on a
simulated portion of our network that will need to continue to run PVST.

It is still a new technology on Brocade gear but so far it seems stable
enough to take a chance and reap the benefits.

Chris

Re: XMR Software Upgrade Path from 4.0.1a [In reply to]

In the last deployment I did involving MCT(it was a 2-level MCT config on the MLX platform as well as between MLX & CES platforms) we used 5.1.00b and it worked quite well. The technology has a little bit of a learning curve(at least it did for me), but once it's up it runs like a champ.

Re: XMR Software Upgrade Path from 4.0.1a [In reply to]

"but once it's up"

Yeah, that's the problem. Where we need it is on a production network
that is serving customers who are very sensitive to downtime. We are
close enough to Brocade that maybe I will see if I can run through the
upgrade process in their Proof of Concept Lab first before we do it in
that particular network. I think we can configure a couple of MLX to
the same configuration we have in production and run through the
upgrade process a couple of times in the lab first.

Re: XMR Software Upgrade Path from 4.0.1a [In reply to]

Hi Gerald,

Just wondering if you happened to upgrade to 5.1. We're actually running pre
4.x code on our XMR's and would like to upgrade to fix a few bugs and gain
features. There are specific features only introduced in 5.1 that are very
attractive to me. Wondering if you've pulled the trigger yet and how 5.1 is
running in your environment.

I also am wondering if there are any Hurricane Electric engineers on this
list. I know their backbone is largely based (if not entirely) on the XMR
platform, both from what I've read and having actually seen one of their
core routers in a cage we are both in. I was curious as to what code
revision they might be running as I'm sure they have extensive experience
with the XMR on their dual stack v4/v6 backbone. Plus I've rarely heard of
or have seen any major issues with Hurricane Electric so I'd assume they're
relatively happy with the code revision they are running. I might just ask
our Brocade rep if they'd be willing to find out and share that information
with us if possible.

Hi Vinny,

our first upgrade will take place on thursday morning, this week. So at
the moment I can't say anything but I'am curious about the result.

Re: XMR Software Upgrade Path from 4.0.1a [In reply to]

Hi,

We at Oxilion, dutch based hosting provider, are running 4.0.0a for
about 2 years now without any problems. Basic functions like OSPF,
BGP, IPv4/IPv6 dualstack etc.

No need to upgrade to 5.1 here yet.

Re: XMR Software Upgrade Path from 4.0.1a [In reply to]

Thanks for the input, Igor.

We specifically have issues with path-mtu-discovery being broken in IPv6 due
to the XMR not responding with icmp unreachables with IPv6. This is a known
issue according to Brocade and is fixed in later releases.

We also recently had a very odd failure on two of four XMR's running the
same code within a couple of hours of each other, thousands of miles apart.
I unfortunately wasn't able to get enough information about what caused the
failure when it was happening, but the XMR's RP seemed to stay alive yet
line cards stopped forwarding traffic and some routing protocols were
flapping causing churn. For the most part, the IGP and iBGP sessions stayed
established which was really weird. No access to the devices were possible
via any means including connecting from an adjacent device. A hard reboot
brought them back online again. It's odd we saw that issues on two of them
within hours of each other but no others were affected. This also happened
early on January 1st which is a little weird.

NSF support (or whatever Brocade calls it) on IS-IS is a new feature in 5.1
that I'd like to have support for. It would complement my Cisco's already
supporting this for quite some time now and make an RP failover much less
noticeable.

Didn't knew this. We do use IPv6 but haven't stumbled on a problem yet
with it. In which case should I see a problem with the
path-mtu-discovery not working?

Re: XMR Software Upgrade Path from 4.0.1a [In reply to]

You'd see this if your IP MTU's are dissimilar across your network anywhere.
This bit us because our links can vary in MTU size depending on the provider
of the circuit or link type. On our Cisco devices, they by default try to
use path-mtu-discovery to optimize the iBGP communication. This resulted in
MTU blackholes and stalled/flapping iBGP sessions on IPv6 between Cisco
routers where an XMR was in the path. It could affect many things depending
on your topology, configuration and applications, or you might not see it at
all.

Didn't knew this. We do use IPv6 but haven't stumbled on a problem yet
with it. In which case should I see a problem with the
path-mtu-discovery not working?

Hi Igor,

Have you tried to do an ACL for v6 SSH access? I just tried to do it,
and it doesn't seem to exist in 4.0.1b. I have the docco for version 4.1
here which says it's there, so I'm wondering if I've been unlucky enough
to be /just/ behind where it was introduced.

Weirdly our RXes which are running much older code (I know it's
different code, but we've had it for years now) are happy to restrict v6
SSH.


Cheers,

Dunc

Re: XMR Software Upgrade Path from 4.0.1a [In reply to]

I'm running 3.9.x currently on the XMR 4000's and filter SSH/telnet on IPv6 using ipv6 access-lists just fine. I'm applying it with "ipv6 access-class" in the global configuration.

Ah, the docs suggest that this only affects access on the management
port. I need to do this for all ports.

Vinny, can you confirm if this just works for the management port for
you or all interfaces?

Dunc,

This limits ipv6 telnet/ssh traffic to the device on any interface/ip address in my network.
