Upgrade Cisco 4500 Switches IOS and ROMM and Failed to Enable VSS (Virtual Switching System)

0

In one of my clients environment, there are two Cisco 4510 running and HSRP has been configured. It has been discussed to upgrade it to VSS (Virtual Switching System) during last a couple of months. The main driven to get VSS is to have dual homed hosts run Etherchannel to connect to those two 4510R+E switches. Obviously converting the core switches to VSS (and having MEC – Multichassis EtherChannel – configured in dist/access switches) helps you to improve overall performance as both fabric will be active in VSS and traffic load-balanced. No more STP blocking port in the dist/access switches, while getting chassis-level redundancy.

There were a try to implement VSS but failed. All steps were recorded here to future reference since it is still working on. The Error messages show IOS version mismatch although both 4510R+E are having same IOS version:

*Oct 22 13:49:30.890: %C4K_REDUNDANCY-2-IOS_VERSION_CHECK_FAIL: STANDBY:IOS version mismatch. Active supervisor version is 15.2(2)E6 (cat4500es8-UNIVERSALK9-M). Standby supervisor version is 15.2(2)E6 (cat4500es8-UNIVERSALK9-M). Redundancy feature may not work as expected.

Compared to Traditional Network Design

High Availability Network Design
Simplified Using Virtual Switching System

VSS (Virtual Switching System) can remove the need for Hot Standby Router Protocol (HSRP), Virtual Router Redundancy Protocol (VRRP), and Gateway Load Balancing Protocol (GLBP). Major benefits include following points based on Cisco VSS Q&A:
1. VSS increases operational efficiency by simplifying the network, reducing switch management overhead by at least 50 percent.
• Single point of management, IP address, and routing instance for the Cisco Catalyst virtual switch
• Multichassis EtherChannel® (MEC) is a Layer 2 multipathing technology that creates simplified loop-free topologies, eliminating the dependency on Spanning Tree Protocol, which can still be activated to protect strictly against any user misconfiguration.
• Flexible deployment options. The underlying physical switches do not have to be colocated. The two physical switches are connected with standard 10 Gigabit Ethernet interfaces and as such can be located any distance based on the distance limitation of the chosen 10 Gigabit Ethernet optics.
2. VSS boosts nonstop communications.
• Interchassis stateful failover results in no disruption to applications that rely on network state information (for example, forwarding table info, NetFlow, Network Address Translation [NAT], authentication, and authorization). VSS eliminates L2/L3 protocol reconvergence if a virtual switch member fails, resulting in deterministic subsecond virtual switch recovery.
• Utilizes EtherChannel (802.3ad or Port Aggregation Protocol (PAgP) for deterministic subsecond Layer 2 link recovery, removing the dependency on Spanning Tree Protocol for link recovery.

Pre-requirements check:

1. VSS support Supervisor Engine 7-E, Supervisor Engine 7L-E, Supervisor Engine 8-E, Supervisor Engine 8L-E, Catalyst 4500-X
Notes:

  • The two chassis must have the same number of slots. However, +E and -E chassis can be mixed.
  • All supervisor engines or systems in a VSS must match precisely.

2. Software requires Cisco IOS XE 3.4.0SG and ROMMON IOS Version 15.0(1r) SG7 later

Troubleshooting and Fix:

Here are some solutions I found online although it is not my case.

Case 1:

The issue was that the standby sup had two images — a K9 image and a non-K9 image — while the active sup just had the K9 image. The config register was 0x2101, which told the switch to boot the first IOS in bootflash/slavebootflash. So when the switch was booting up, the active sup was using the only IOS in the bootflash (the K9 image) while the standby sup was using the first identified IOS in the slavebootflash (non-K9). As a result, there were differnet IOSs running in each.
The issue was evident in the ‘sh redundancy’ and ‘sh log’ commands:
Switch#show redundancyRedundant System Information :——————————Hardware Mode = DuplexConfigured Redundancy Mode = Stateful SwitchoverOperating Redundancy Mode = RPRReason: UnknownMaintenance Mode = DisabledCommunications = Up
Current Processor Information :——————————Active Location = slot 5Current Software state = ACTIVEUptime in current state = 1 week, 1 day, 43 minutesImage Version = Cisco IOS Software, IOS-XE Software, Catalyst 4500 L3 Switch Software (cat4500e-UNIVERSALK9-M), Version 03.01.01.SG RELEASE SOFTWARE (fc1)BOOT = bootflash:cat4500e-universalk9.SPA.03.01.01.SG.150-1.XO1.bin,1;Configuration register = 0x2101

Switch# sh log*Sep 2 14:52:05.490 UTC: %C4K_REDUNDANCY-2-IOS_VERSION_CHECK_FAIL: IOS version mismatch. Active supervisor version is 15.0(1)XO1 (cat4500e-UNIVERSALK9-M). Standby supervisor version is 15.0(1)XO1 (cat4500e-UNIVERSAL-M). Redundancy feature may not work as expected.

Case 2:
Found another similar support topic at Cisco support community. It has same error message as I have on standby switch CSW002.

Here are solution suggested by Tarun Vyas.


Best way to use IOS upgrade in 4500X without ISSU(no downtime required but recommended to do it in maintenance window)
Method of Procedure
IOS Upgrade Cisco 4500x (VSS)
Pre-upgrade activity.

  • Config backup of both of device
  • IOS backup of current IOS (In case required, will put current IOS again for roll back purpose.)

Below Command output.

  • Show version – Register value should be  (config-register 0x2102)
  • Show inventory
  • Show environment
  • dir bootflash:
  • dir slavebootflash:
  • show bootvar
  • show switch virtual
  • show redundancy
  • show switch virtual slot-map
  • show module
  • show log
  • show run start

Upgrade IOS in 4500x (VSS configured)1. IOS download in bootflash and slave bootflash:

  • Copy tftp: bootflash:

2. Check IOS in bootflash

  • dir bootflash:
  • dir slavebootflash:

3. Very with MD5 command

  • Show version – Register value should be (config-register 0x2102)
  • verify bootflash: cat4500e-universalk9.SPA.03.06.05.E.152-2.E5.bin
  • verify slavebootflash: cat4500e-universalk9.SPA.03.06.05.E.152-2.E5.bin
  • 71a13a0fa109fa731743c199e7a29479 MD5 value for this IOS

4. Set the boot path for current IOS and verify path is set

  • no boot system bootflash:cat4500e- universalk9.SPA.03.04.05.SG.151-2.SG5.bin
  • boot system bootflash: cat4500e-universalk9.SPA.03.06.05.E.152-2.E5.bin
  • write
  • show bootvar

5. Standby switch will be reloading for IOS upgrade in standby device.

  • redundancy reload peer
  • show module (after peer come up)

     we will verify current IOS in peer switch with show module command6. Now master device will be reloaded for IOS upgrade.

  • redundancy force-switchover

This will reload the active unit and force switchover to standby[confirm]
Preparing for switchover…
7. After primary device come up will verify IOS in both of device.

  • Show inventory
  • Show version
  • Show environment
  • dir bootflash:
  • dir slavebootflash:
  • show bootvar
  • show switch virtual
  • show redundancy
  • show switch virtual slot-map
  • show module
  • show log

Case 3 – my Case:
My case is similar as both but not exactly same. First thing, both our switches are using same IOS. I am pretty much sure about it. What we found is the legacy configuration in both switches has interference the vss process. Also most important part, cold start both switches.  Once we have cleared the configuration and reconfigured it to VSS , it worked after cold re-started both switches. After that, we copied the configuration one by one in.
