Auto QoS on a 2800 Series Router

Unanswered Question
Dec 18th, 2007


I want activate Auto QoS on a Cisco 2800 Series Router.

If I change in the Giga-Interface config mode and type "auto qos" than I get the information, that this command does't exist.

What's wrong there. Is there no auto qos on this router?

Yours sincerely

I have this problem too.

AutoQos is only available on

- ATM PVCs (high and low subinterfaces only)

- Frame Relay DLCIs (point to point Only)

- Serial interface using PPP or HDLC

Bear in mind there are additional prerequisite config requrements for AutoQos.

It would be a good idea check the feature navigator to see if your IOS supports AutoQos Enterprise (12.3T onwards)

Hope this helps.

I have a 2801 and loaded FW ver 12.4(16a) on it and was able to apply AutoQOS on on the FE interface.

Although I haven't tested it yet since my counterpart on the far-end is still setting-up.

Do you this Auto-QOS will not work on the FE port?

I have only Gigabit-Interfaces.

This is the output of the show version. Maybe this will help?

I don't know if this will help but I am running policy map with class maps applied to the gig interface using service policy command? Is this for voice

nathy1984 Fri, 12/28/2007 - 01:08

It's for voice and for other applications.

I can also run QoS with class maps and policy maps. But I would test QoS.

Does nobody has an idea? What could be the problem?

Can you post the exact commands you are entering from the time you login to the router up to and including the error message you receive?


nathy1984 Thu, 01/24/2008 - 06:55


I do "configure terminal".

Then I do "interface gigabitEthernet 0/0"

And then I will put the command "auto qos".

But there ist no command "auto"

Do I make something wrong?

Best regards
