XML weirdness in Cisco ACE module

Unanswered Question
Apr 8th, 2009

Hello,

I'm investigating the xml interface of a Cisco ACE module in a 6500

chassis and see something weird.

When I log in with SSH and do the following:

switch/contextA# show running-config interface

Generating configuration....

interface vlan 115

ip address 172.31.3.6 255.255.255.0

access-group input ALLOWALL

access-group output ALLOWALL

nat-pool 1 172.31.2.12 172.31.2.12 netmask 255.255.255.255 pat

no shutdown

switch/contextA# xml-show on

switch/contextA# show running-config interface

Generating configuration....

<xml_show_running_config>

<interface type='vlan' number='115'>

<ip_address address='172.31.3.6' netmask='255.255.255.0'/>

<access-group access-type='input' access-name='ALLOWALL'/>

<access-group output='ALLOWALL'/>

<nat-pool nat-id='1' mapped-ip-addr-start='172.31.2.12' mapped-ip-addr-end='172.31.2.12' netmask='255.255.255.255' nat-config-type='pat'/>

<shutdown sense='no'/>

</interface>

</xml_show_running_config>

Notice the difference between the access-group input/output in the xml

output. They differ a lot. Also the ACE will not accept the

configuration via XML that it outputted itself when I delete "interface vlan 115"

I get the following when trying to insert it via a HTTP POST:

<response_xml>

<command>

<interface type='vlan' number='115'>

<ip_address address='172.31.3.6' netmask='255.255.255.0'/>

<access-group output='ALLOWALL'/>

<nat-pool nat-id='1' mapped-ip-addr-start='172.31.2.12' mapped-ip-addr-end='172.31.2.12' netmask='255.255.255.255'

nat-config-type='pat'/>

<shutdown sense='no'/>

</interface>

</command>

<status code="105" text="XML_ERR_ATTR_INVALID">

<error_message>Error while processing Attribute: output</error_message>

</status>

</response_xml>

Relevant info:

Software

loader: Version 12.2[120]

system: Version A2(2.0) [build 3.0(0)A2(2.0)]

system image file: [LCP] disk0:c6ace-t1k9-mz.A2_2_0.bin

installed license: ACE-VIRT-050

Does anybody know why this is and how to fix this? It seems like a big bug to me.

With kind regards,

Tom van Leeuwen

I have this problem too.
