Help! problems with IOS 6.3.(3)

I have PIX520 (flash 16Mb and 128 RAM). I have upgradeted from 5.1.3 to 6.3.(3). at fist the configuration was with conduit and outbount commands, later I have changed for access-list.

The PIX has 4 interfaces, Outside, DMZ, SEGURA and INSIDE. I have one DNS server (172.17.1.7) in DMZ segment and two internal servers DNS (172.25.0.176, 172.25.0.177)

PROBLEM: at first the configuration works very well, there are communication between DNSs servers. But after, without any cause the communication goes down. the DNSs between them can't communicate.

WORKAROUND: I have back the old configuration with conduit and outbound commands, and the problem resolve

Q:

What are happening?

What is the better recommendation of IOS version for this type of PIX?

Re: Help! problems with IOS 6.3.(3)

I'm not so sure this isn't a bug. I'm experiencing this on a 506 with the same version. Our clients query an internal caching only server that resolves requests for them. Works fine for a few hours then it won't pass any more queries, doesnt even show anything in the log. A reload fixes it. I'm waiting on my maintenance agreement to renew to talk with TAC about this.

Re: Help! problems with IOS 6.3.(3)

The symptoms you guys mention sound like a known issue - CSCec45748 - New DNS conns reset the idle timer of previous DNS conns.

My suggestion would be to open a TAC case and request the latest 6.3(3) interim release to test with. This should have the fix to this problem. Good luck.

Re: Help! problems with IOS 6.3.(3)

Thanks Scott;

1. How do you see the pix configuration? is it good?

2 I have a PIX520, What IOS version do you

recommend?

3. If I would decide to DOWNgrade the version

Where Can I find the documentation?

Sergio

Re: Help! problems with IOS 6.3.(3)

1. I just glanced at it quickly and it looks fine to me. But it is hard to say without knowing your enviro first hand.

2. The latest 6.3(3) interim release if you want to run with the features in the 6.3 code. You will need to get this from the TAC (it is not on CCO).

3. http://www.cisco.com/univercd/cc/td/doc/product/iaabu/pix/pix_sw/index.htm

Re: Help! problems with IOS 6.3.(3)

Thanks Scott for your response.

Can I DOWNGRADE from 6.3.(3) to 6.1.(5)?

What is the procedure to Downgrade?

Because, 6.1.(5)GD is most stable, that is true?

Sergio

Re: Help! problems with IOS 6.3.(3)

Yes, you can downgrade to 6.1(5) of you wish. There should be nothing that special that needs to be done here. Just load the 6.1(5) binary file and reload the PIX. If you have some commands that are new to 6.2 or 6.3 code, the obviously will error out when the 6.1(5) code tries to read in the config but this should not be too big of a deal. Just keep an eye on the console to have an idea of what is going on. And, yes, 6.1(5) has reached General Deployment which is milestone signifying a certain level of stability.
