Inline interface problems after upgrade to 4.1.3b

Unanswered Question
May 18th, 2010

Hi,

after the upgrade, I have the following output:

WAE#sh interface inlinegroup 1/0

Interface is in intercept operating mode.

Standard NIC mode is off.

Disable bypass mode is off.

VLAN IDs configured for inline interception: All

Watchdog timer is enabled.

Timer frequency: 1600 ms.

Autoreset frequency 500 ms.

The watchdog timer will expire in 1338 ms.

Link State: Interface is administratively down, line protocol down

The link state of the interfaces is weird, as I have this configuration:

interface InlineGroup 1/0

inline vlan all

no autosense

bandwidth 100

full-duplex

exit

I have to say that nothing is connected, but is this output normal??

Thanks,

I have this problem too.

Hi,

Why upgrade to 4.1.3b and not 4.1.5f?

Try to run sh interface inlineport 1/0/lan or sh interface inlineport 1/0/wan and see if what it showing.

This output is normal.  The link state is propagated between the ports in the InlineGroup.  See CSCsh04752 for more information.

Hi,

so, I shouldn't be worried about this?

I had other customers running 4.1.3b, that is why I chose that one. Is there any major problem with 4.1.3b?

sh interface inlineport 1/0/lan or sh interface inlineport 1/0/wan show same as above

Customer had the WAN router disconnected from WAE, and when we've tried to reconnect the WAE, there were latency and connectivity problems. Customer is sure it's a SP issue, I just wanted to be sure because this output was very strange. So, even with the WAE running fine, could I have that output due to the bug?

Regards,

Ruben

No, the output you are seeing is expected.  That being said, you should upgrade to the latest 4.1.x release to avoid any other issues with your deployment.

Regarding your customer's performance issue, do they still have latency and connectivity probems when the WAE is not in-path?
