Introduction
The Cisco NX-OS software is a data center-class operating system built with modularity, resiliency, and
serviceability at its foundation. Based on the industry-proven Cisco NX-OS software, Cisco NX-OS
helps ensure continuous availability and sets the standard for mission-critical data center environments.
The highly modular design of Cisco NX-OS makes zero-effect operations a reality and enables
exceptional operational flexibility.
Several new hardware and software features are introduced for the Cisco Nexus 6000 Series device and
the Cisco Nexus 2000 Series Fabric Extender (FEX) to improve the performance, scalability, and
management of the product line.
Cisco Nexus 6000 Series Release Notes, Release 7.x

System Requirements
Cisco Nexus 6000 Series Devices
The Cisco Nexus 6000 Series includes 10- and 40-Gigabit Ethernet density in energy-efficient compact
form factor switches. The Cisco Nexus 6000 Series Layer 2 and Layer 3 set allow for multiple scenarios
such as direct-attach 10- and 40-Gigabit Ethernet access and high-density Cisco Fabric Extender (FEX)
aggregation deployments, leaf and spine architectures, or compact aggregation to build scalable Cisco
Unified Fabric in the data centers.
Cisco Nexus 6000 Series products use the same set of Cisco application-specific integrated circuits
(ASICs) and a single software image across the products within the family, which offers feature
consistency and operational simplicity. Cisco Nexus 6000 Series switches support robust Layer 2 and
Layer 3 functions, industry-leading FEX architecture with Cisco Nexus 2000 and Cisco Nexus B22
Blade FEX, in-service software upgrades (ISSUs), and Cisco FabricPath. Operational efficiency and
programmability are enhanced on the Cisco Nexus 6000 Series through advanced analytics, PowerOn
Auto Provisioning (POAP), and Python/Tool Command Language (Tcl) scripting.
The Cisco Nexus devices include a family of line-rate, low-latency, lossless 10-Gigabit Ethernet, Cisco
Data Center Ethernet, Fibre Channel over Ethernet (FCoE), and native Fibre Channel devices for data
center applications.
For information about the Cisco Nexus 6000 Series, see the Cisco Nexus 6000 Series Platform Hardware
Installation Guide.
Cisco Nexus 2000 Series Fabric Extenders
The Cisco Nexus 2000 Series Fabric Extender (FEX) is a highly scalable and flexible server networking
solution that works with the Cisco Nexus 6000 Series devices to provide high-density and low-cost
connectivity for server aggregation. Scaling across 1-Gigabit Ethernet, 10-Gigabit Ethernet, and
40-Gigabit Ethernet, unified fabric, rack, and blade server environments, the FEX is designed to simplify
data center architecture and operations.
The FEX integrates with its parent Cisco Nexus device, which allows zero-touch provisioning and
automatic configuration. The FEX provides a single point of management that supports a large numbers
of servers and hosts that can be configured with the same feature set as the parent Cisco Nexus 6000
Series switch, including security and quality of service (QoS) configuration parameters. Spanning Tree
Protocol (STP) is not required between the Fabric Extender and its parent switch, because the Fabric
Extender and its parent switch allow you to enable a large multi-path, loop-free, active-active topology.
Software is not included with the Fabric Extender. Cisco NX-OS software is automatically downloaded
and upgraded from its parent switch. For information about configuring the Cisco Nexus 2000 FEX, see
the “Configuring the Fabric Extender” chapter in the Cisco Nexus 6000 Series Layer 2 Switching
Configuration Guide.

CTS with FabricPath
The Cisco TrustSec security architecture has been extended to support Cisco FabricPath environments
including those using VPC+. CTS packet classification can occur before or as traffic enters the fabric,
at which point packet tags are preserved through the fabric for the purpose of applying security policy
to the data path.
Dynamic ARP Inspection Enhancement
Dynamic ARP Inspection (DAI) can validate ARP packets against user-configured ARP access control
lists (ACLs). DAI can be configured to drop ARP packets when the IP/MAC addresses in the packets are
invalid. This is done by configuring ARP based ACLs.

ACL Logging for IPv6 ACLs
The ACL logging feature allows you to monitor IPv6 ACL flows and to log dropped packets on an
interface.
Dynamic FCoE Using FabricPath
Dynamic FCoE extends the capability and reliability of storage networks by leveraging FabricPath
technology to create logical separation of SAN A and SAN B. FCoE VFCs and Interswitch-Links (ISLs)
are dynamically configured, simplifying multihop FCoE deployments in leaf-spine topologies.
Layer 2 CTS Support
The Cisco TrustSec security architecture builds secure networks by establishing clouds of trusted
network devices. Cisco TrustSec also uses the device information acquired during authentication for
classifying, or coloring, the packets as they enter the network. This packet classification is maintained
by tagging packets on ingress to the Cisco TrustSec network so that they can be properly identified for
the purpose of applying security and other policy criteria along the data path.

Anycast HSRP
Anycast HSRP is a FabricPath-based feature in which the traditional HSRP can be extended to an
n-Gateway solution with all the gateways actively forwarding traffic. This feature supports active load
balancing of traffic among all the gateways configured apart for redundancy. A maximum of 4 Gateways
is supported.
Cisco Nexus 6000 Series Release Notes, Release 7.x
17
New and Changed Features
Data Analytics
This feature provides the capability of advanced analytics for network visibility and management.
Critical analytics for network monitoring is supported including Latency Based SPAN, SPAN on Drop,
Micro-Burst Monitor and Switch Latency.
Latency-based SPAN can be used to monitor any packet from an interface when the latency on that
interface exceeds the configured threshold.
SPAN on Drop can be used to configure SPAN on particular packets which would otherwise get dropped
due to congestion, and is used for known unicast packets.
Micro-Burst Monitoring is supported per port both in ingress and egress direction and can be selectively
enabled or disabled in either direction.
Switch Latency provides instantaneous latency and histogram data between a pair of ports and provides
minimum, average, and maximum latency between the slected pairs of ports.
Dynamic Fabric Automation
This software release is the first release to support Cisco's Evolutionary Data Center Fabric solution
called Dynamic Fabric Automation (DFA). DFA is evolutionary and is based on the industry leading
Unified Fabric solution.
DFA focuses on simplifying, optimizing and automating data center fabric environments by offering an
architecture based on four major pillars namely Fabric Management, Workload Automation, Optimized
Networking and Virtual Fabrics. Each of these pillars provide a set of modular functions which can be
used together or independently for easiness of adoption of new technologies in the data center
environment.
Complete details on the DFA architecture can be found at: http://www.cisco.com/go/dfa.
Early Warning for FIB Exhaustion
When the Forwarding Information Base (FIB) table is 90% full, the following messages is displayed:
FIB_TCAM_RESOURCE_EXHAUSTION:FIB TCAM usage is at 90 percent.
ECN with WRED
Currently, the congestion control and avoidance algorithms for Transmission Control Protocol (TCP) are
based on the idea that packet loss is an appropriate indication of congestion on networks transmitting
data using the best-effort service model. When a network uses the best-effort service model, the network
delivers data if it can, without any assurance of reliability, delay bounds, or throughput. However, these
algorithms and the best-effort service model are not suited to applications that are sensitive to delay or
packet loss (for instance, interactive traffic including Telnet, web-browsing, and transfer of audio and
video data). Weighted Random Early Detection (WRED), and by extension, Explicit Congestion
Notification (ECN), solves this problem.
ERSPAN with ACL Filtering
With ERSPAN traffic the destination is remote and the overall impact of bandwidth congestion can be
significant. The ERSPAN with ACL filtering feature allows you to filter ERSPAN traffic so that you can
reduce bandwidth congestion. To configure ERSPAN with ACL filtering, you use ACL’s for the session
to filter out traffic that you do not to span. An ACL is a list of permissions associated to any entity in the
Cisco Nexus 6000 Series Release Notes, Release 7.x
18
New and Changed Features
system; in the context of a monitoring session, an ACL is a list of rules which results in the spanning of
traffic that matches the ACL criteria, saving bandwidth for more meaningful data. The filter would apply
on all sources in the session (VLAN or interface).
FabricPath Operations, Administration, and Management
Support for Fabric Path Operations, Administration and Management has been added in this software
release.
Intermediate System to Intermediate System Protocol
Intermediate System to Intermediate System (IS-IS) is an Interior Gateway Protocol (IGP) based on
Standardization (ISO)/International Engineering Consortium (IEC) 10589. Cisco Nexus devices support
Internet Protocol version 4 (IPv4) and Internet Protocol version 6 (IPv6). IS-IS is a dynamic link-state
routing protocol that can detect changes in the network topology and calculate loop-free routes to other
nodes in the network. Each router maintains a link-state database that describes the state of the network
and sends packets on every configured link to discover neighbors. IS-IS floods the link-state information
across the network to each neighbor. The router also sends advertisements and updates on the link-state
database through all the existing neighbors.
Layer 2 Bidirectional Forwarding Detection
The Bidirectional Forwarding Detection (BFD) provides fast forwarding-path failure detection times for
media types, encapsulations, topologies, and routing protocols. You can use BFD to detect forwarding
path failures at a uniform rate, rather than at variable rates for different protocol hello mechanisms. BFD
makes network profiling and planning easier and reconvergence time consistent and predictable.
Multi-Destination Switch Port Analyzer
Local Switch Port Analyzer (SPAN) and SPAN-on-Drop sessions can support multiple destination ports.
This allows traffic in a single local SPAN session or a SPAN-on-Drop session also to be monitored and
sent to multiple destinations.
Multi-Destination Tree
A Multi-Destination Tree (MDT), also referred to as a forwarding tag or ftag, is a spanning-tree used for
forwarding packets within a topology. A topology has two MDTs/ ftags: topology 0 has ftag 1 and 2,
topology 1 has ftag 3 and 4.
OpenFlow v1.0
The OpenFlow feature is a specification from the Open Networking Foundation (ONF) that defines a
flow-based forwarding infrastructure (L2-L4 Ethernet switch model) and a standardized application
programmatic interface (protocol definition) to learn capabilities, add and remove flow control entries
and request statistics. OpenFlow allows a controller to direct the forwarding functions of a switch
through a secure channel.
Cisco Nexus 6000 Series Release Notes, Release 7.x
19
New and Changed Features
One Platform Kit (OnePK)
Support has been added for One Platform Kit (onePK) Turbo API. OnePK is a cross-platform API and
software development kit that enables you to develop applications that interact directly with Cisco
networking devices. onePK provides you access to networking services by using a set of controlled APIs
that share the same programming model and style. For more information, see the following URL:
http://www.cisco.com/en/US/partner/prod/iosswrel/onepk.html
Overload Bit
Intermediate System to Intermediate System (IS-IS) uses the overload bit to tell other routers not to use
the local router to forward traffic but to continue routing traffic destined for that local router.
Port Channel Max Links
The Port Channel Max Links feature defines the maximum number of bundled ports allowed in an LACP
port channel.
Q-in-Q VLAN Tunneling
A Q-in-Q VLAN tunnel enables a service provider to segregate the traffic of different customers in their
infrastructure, while still giving the customer a full range of VLANs for their internal use by adding a
second 802.1Q tag to an already tagged frame.
Sampled NetFlow
The Sampled NetFlow feature samples incoming packets on an interface. The packets sampled then
qualify to create flows. Sampled NetFlow reduces the amount of export data sent to the collector by
limiting the number of packets that create flows and the number of flows. It is essential when flows are
created on a line card or external device, instead of on the forwarding engine.
Switch Port Analyzer with ACL Filtering
The Switch Port Analyzer (SPAN) with Access Control List (ACL) filtering feature allows you to filter
SPAN traffic so that you can reduce bandwidth congestion. To configure SPAN with ACL filtering, you
use ACL’s for the session to filter out traffic that you do not want to span. An ACL is a list of permissions
associated to any entity in the system; in the context of a monitoring session, an ACL is a list of rules
which results in spanning only the traffic that matches the ACL criteria, saving bandwidth for more
meaningful data. The filter can apply to all sources in the session.
Static/Dynamic Network Address Translation
Network Address Translation (NAT) enables private IP internetworks that use nonregistered IP addresses
to connect to the Internet. NAT operates on a device, usually connecting two networks, and translates
private (not globally unique) IP addresses in the internal network into legal IP addresses before packets
are forwarded to another network. You can configure NAT to advertise only one IP address for the entire
network to the outside world. This ability provides additional security, effectively hiding the entire
internal network behind one IP address.

Upgrading or Downgrading to a New Release
TCAM Carving
You can create and administer up to 16 templates to resize the regions in ternary content-addressable
memory (TCAM).
VN-Segment
The VN-Segment feature defines a new way to "tag" packets on the wire replacing the traditional 802.1Q
VLAN tag. This feature uses a 24-bit tag also referred to as a Virtual Network Identifier (VNI). CE links
(access and trunk) carry traditional VLAN tagged/untagged frames. These are the VN-Segment Edge
ports.
Web Cache Control Protocol v2
WCCPv2 specifies interactions between one or more Cisco NX-OS routers and one or more cache
engines. WCCPv2 transparently redirects selected types of traffic through a group of routers. The
selected traffic is redirected to a group of cache engines to optimize resource usage and lower response
times.

Limitations
This section describes the limitations for Cisco NX-OS Release 7.1(0)N1(1a).
•
The Server Virtualization Switch (SVS) connection is not deleted during a rollback when NIV is
enabled. To resolve this issue, delete the current SVS connection and reapply the original SVS
connection. For details, see CSCts17033.
•
If you configure a Cisco Nexus 2248TP port to 100 Mbps instead of autonegotiation, then
autonegotiation does not occur, which is the expected behavior. Both sides of the link should be
configured to both hardwired speed or both autonegotiate.
no speed—Autonegotiates and advertises all speeds (only full duplex).
speed 1000—Autonegotiates only for an 802.3x pause.
speed 100—Does not autonegotiate; pause cannot be advertised. The peer must be set to not
autonegotiate and fix at 100 Mbps (similar to the N2248TP). For details, see CSCte81998.
•
When a private VLAN port is configured as a TX (egress) SPAN source, the traffic seen at the SPAN
destination port is marked with the VLAN of the ingressed frame. There is no workaround.
•
In large-scale configurations, some Cisco Nexus 2000 Series Fabric Extenders might take up to 3
minutes to appear online after entering the reload command. A configuration can be termed large
scale when the maximum permissible Cisco Nexus 2000 Series Fabric Extenders are connected to a
Cisco Nexus 6000 Series switch, all host-facing ports are connected, and each host-facing interface
has a large configuration that supports the maximum permissible ACEs per interface.
•
The Cisco Nexus 2148 Fabric Extender does not support frames with the dot1q vlan 0 tag.
Cisco Nexus 6000 Series Release Notes, Release 7.x
22
Limitations
•
VACLs of more than one type on a single VLAN are unsupported. Cisco NX-OS software supports
only a single type of VACL (either MAC, IPv4, or IPv6) applied on a VLAN. When a VACL is
applied to a VLAN, it replaces the existing VACL if the new VACL is a different type. For instance,
if a MAC VACL is configured on a VLAN and then an IPv6 VACL is configured on the same VLAN,
the IPv6 VACL is applied, and the MAC VACL is removed.
•
A MAC ACL is applied only on non-IP packets. Even if there is a match eth type = ipv4 statement
in the MAC ACL, it does not match an IP packet. To avoid this situation, use IP ACLs to apply access
control to the IP traffic instead of using a MAC ACL that matches the EtherType to IPv4 or IPv6.
•
Multiple boot kickstart statements in the configuration are not supported.
•
If you configure Multiple Spanning Tree (MST) on a Cisco Nexus 6000 Series switch, avoid
partitioning the network into a large number of regions.
•
By design, vEth interfaces do not share the underlying behavior of a vPC port. As a result, a VLAN
is not suspended when the peer switch suspends it. For example, when you shut a VLAN on a
primary switch, the VLAN continues to be up on the secondary switch when the vEth interface is
on a FEX. When the VLAN on the primary switch goes down, the VLAN on the vEth interface on
the primary is suspended, but the vEth on the secondary switch remains up because it is an active
VLAN on the secondary switch.
•
The packet length in the IP GRE header of a packet exiting from the switch is not equal to the MTU
value configured in the ERSPAN source session. This is true for SPAN or ERSPAN. The Cisco
Nexus 6000 Series switch terminates in multiples of 16 bytes. If MTU is configured as 100 bytes,
then the actual truncated packet is 96 bytes.
•
Unknown unicast packets in FabricPath ports are counted as multicast packets in interface counters.
This issue occurs when unknown Unicast packets are sent and received with a reserved multicast
address (that floods to a VLAN) in the outer FabricPath header, and the Cisco Nexus 6000 Series
switch increments the interface counter based on the outer FabricPath header. As a result, Multicast
counters are incremented. There is no workaround for this issue.
•
In an emulated switch setup, an inband keepalive does not work. The following steps are
recommended for peer keepalive over SVI when a switch is in FabricPath mode:
– Use a dedicated front panel port as a vPC+ keepalive. The port should be in CE mode.
– Use a dedicated VLAN to carry the keepalive interface. The VLAN should be a CE VLAN.
– Add the management keyword to the corresponding SVI so that the failure of a Layer 3 module
will not bring down the SVI interface.
– Enter the dual-active exclude interface-vlan keepalive-vlan command to prevent the SVI from
going down on the secondary when a peer-link goes down.
•
The limit of the table that holds the Router MAC and Virtual MAC entries for determining packet
routing or switching is 500 entries. The Virtual MAC entries, the MAC used for HSRP/VRRP that
is also programmed in this table, can be shared across multiple Layer 3 interfaces. If SVIs 1–100 all
have the same group number configured, just one entry needs to be programmed in this table. We
recommend that you configure the same group ID across all or multiple Layer 3 interfaces/SVIs. If
multiple group IDs are configured on an Layer 3 interface, we recommend that you configure the
same set of group IDs across all or multiple Layer 3 interfaces. This configuration supports
HSRP/VRRP on more interfaces.
•
The maximum IP MTU that can be set on Layer 3 interfaces running Layer 3 protocols is 9192
because of the internal header used inside the switch. The related network-qos policy must be set to
9216.

SPAN Limitations on Fabric Extender Ports
The SPAN limitations on Fabric Extender ports are as follows:
•
On a Cisco Nexus device, if the SPAN source is a FEX port, the frames will always be tagged when
leaving the SPAN destination.
•
On a Cisco Nexus 6000 Series switch, if the SPAN source is an access port on a switch port or FEX
port, the spanned frames at the SPAN destination will be tagged.
•
On a Cisco Nexus 6000 Series switch, if the SPAN source is on an access port on the switch port,
the frames will not be tagged when leaving the SPAN destination.
•
Ports on a FEX can be configured as a tx-source in one session only.
If two ports on the same FEX are enabled to be tx-source, the ports need to be in the same session.
If you configure a FEX port as a tx-source and another port belonging to the same FEX is already
configured as a tx-source on a different SPAN session, an error is displayed on the CLI.
In the following example, Interface Ethernet100/1/1 on a FEX 100 is already configured as a
tx-source on SPAN session-1:
swor28(config-monitor)# show running-config monitor
version 7.0(0)N1(1)
monitor session 1
source interface Ethernet100/1/1 tx
destination interface Ethernet1/37
no shut
If you add an interface Ethernet100/1/2 as a tx-source to a different SPAN session (session-2) the
following error appears:
swor28(config)# monitor session 2
swor28(config-monitor)# source interface ethernet 100/1/2 tx
ERROR: Eth100/1/2: Ports on a fex can be tx source in one session only
swor28(config-monitor)#
•
When a FEX port is configured as a tx-source, the multicast traffic is spanned on all VLANs that the
tx-source port is a member of. The FEX port sends out only multicast packets that are not filtered
by IGMP snooping. For example, if FEX ports 100/1/1–12 are configured on VLAN 11 and the
switch port 1/5 sends multicast traffic on VLAN 11 in a multicast group, and hosts connected to FEX
ports 100/1/3–12 are interested in receiving that multicast traffic (through IGMP), then that
multicast traffic goes out on FEX ports 100/1/3–12, but not on 100/1/1–2.
If you configure SPAN Tx on port 100/1/1, although the multicast traffic does not egress out of port
100/1/1, the SPAN destination does receive that multicast traffic, which is due to a design limitation.
•
When a FEX port is configured as both SPAN rx-source and tx-source, broadcast non-IGMP Layer-2
multicast frames as well as unknown unicast frames originating from that port might be seen twice
on the SPAN destination: once on the ingress and once on the egress path. On the egress path, the
frames are filtered by the FEX to prevent them from going out on the same port on which they were
Cisco Nexus 6000 Series Release Notes, Release 7.x

Caveats
received. For example, if FEX port 100/1/1 is configured on VLAN 11 and is also configured as
SPAN rx-source and tx-source and a broadcast frame is received on that port, the SPAN destination
recognizes two copies of the frame, even though the frame is not sent back on port 100/1/1.
•
A FEX port cannot be configured as a SPAN destination. Only a switch port can be configured and
used as a SPAN destination.
•
With a SPAN on Latency session, FEX ports cannot be configured as source or destination.
Layer 3 Limitations
Asymmetric Configuration
In a vPC topology, two Cisco Nexus 6000 Series switches configured as vPC peer switches need to be
configured symmetrically for Layer 3 configurations such as SVIs, a peer gateway, routing protocol and
policies, and RACLs.
Note
vPC consistency check does not include Layer 3 parameters.
