Cisco 5300 DSPM / C549 and software vfc upgrade

Question is:

If I put version 7 to vfc then it going to work. But I'd like to know what is the differences between DSPM boards or between C549 or between AS itself that let it have last vfc software.........

Here is some info:

Router#show vfc 1 version vcware

Voice Feature Card in Slot 1:

VCWare Version : 9.20a

ROM Monitor Version: 1.3

DSPWare Version : 3.6.16aL

Technology : C549

Firmware version mismatch for bundle AS5300 VCWare

- version found (9.20a) is higher than maximum allowed (7.xx)

Firmware version mismatch for bundle AS5300 C549

- version found (3.6.16aL) is higher than maximum allowed (3.4.xxL)

Router#show vfc 1 version dspware

DSPWare version in VFC slot 1 is 3.6.16aL

Firmware version mismatch for bundle AS5300 VCWare

- version found (9.20a) is higher than maximum allowed (7.xx)

Firmware version mismatch for bundle AS5300 C549

- version found (3.6.16aL) is higher than maximum allowed (3.4.xxL)

Go to this URL:

http://www.cisco.com/univercd/cc/td/doc/product/access/acs_serv/5300/sw_conf/vcw_rn/rnvcware.htm#xtocid5

It has a vfc/ios compatibility matrix. So shows you what vfc version should be run with each IOS version. So if you require something in a later vfc then you also need to upgrade your IOS to match.

Sorry it is not work...

I read this and many others before I did posting...

:-)

So I tried matching version for latest versions.... NO luck...

Re: Cisco 5300 DSPM / C549 and software vfc upgrade

What version of IOS are you running?

Re: Cisco 5300 DSPM / C549 and software vfc upgrade

c5300-js-mz.122-2.XB6.bin which is ENTERPRISE VOICE PLUS

And I tried vcware 9.19 and 9.20a.

Re: Cisco 5300 DSPM / C549 and software vfc upgrade

This is message that I am worry about....

00:00:58: DSPM 1 (type C542) in slot 1 is incompatible with installed VCWare (type C549)

00:00:58: DSPM 2 (type C542) in slot 1 is incompatible with installed VCWare (type C549)

00:00:58: DSPM 3 (type C542) in slot 1 is incompatible with installed VCWare (type C549)

00:00:58: DSPM 4 (type C542) in slot 1 is incompatible with installed VCWare (type C549)

Now I am trying use c5300-js-mz.122-11.T.bin

and vcw-vfc-mz.c549.hc.10.26.bin

And vcm do not unbind... Just says that it is and it is not....

First moment after boot I can see

Then after few seconds

24 DSP(s), 48 Voice resource(s)

This is full sh ver:

Router#sh vfc 1 v v

Voice Feature Card in Slot 1:

VCWare Version : 10.26

VCWare/DSPWare version compatibility OK

Router#sh vfc 1 v d

DSPWare version in VFC slot 1 is 4.0.26

VCWare/DSPWare version compatibility OK

Router#sh vfc 1 di

Files in slot 1 VFC flash:

10. cdc-gsmfr-hc-l.4.0.26.bin

11. cdc-gefr-hc-l.4.0.26.bin

=========================================================

Then I put c5300-js-mz.122-10a.bin

and vcw-vfc-mz.c549.hc.7.40.bin

And it seems OK...I mean it (vcw) was unbundled...

And at boot I can see

The same.....

========================

Bottom line....

I feel that software IOS OK and VCWare as well...But ...This starting message and that fact that I see 24 voices at first and 48 then....

The only thing I can think - This voice boards have C549 and some jumpers in the board ....So this jumpers are too tall and I am checking board with only one DSPM module in (I thought just cut them to be able insert 2 boards)...

I have label DSP ver 2.1 on this boards...

So what can you say....

Re: Cisco 5300 DSPM / C549 and software vfc upgrade

Oh ok now it makes sense.

There are two different VFC technologies, C542 & C549. So if you remove current vfc file and install vcw-vfc-mz.c542.10.26.bin instead it should be fine.

Re: Cisco 5300 DSPM / C549 and software vfc upgrade

May be I was not clear...

Boards are with C549 chips.... So I know for sure wich technology I have...

Problem are somewhere else....

Should those messages comes in any box.... Or it is just this one 5300 problem....

May be I shouldupgrade boot flash .... I am not sure....

New Member

Re: Cisco 5300 DSPM / C549 and software vfc upgrade

Just so I'm clear on the problem can you please paste the output from the following commands:

show vfc 1 interface

show vfc 1 v v
