CS 17.1.1 Firmware Out - Based on New IOS XE Train 17.12

You can review the source IOS XE RNs here: https://www.cisco.com/c/en/us/support/ios-nx-os-software/ios-xe-17/products-release-notes-list.html

While IOS-XE features do not directly map to Meraki any new features added in 17.10, 17,11, and 17.12 would  now exist in the base code and be able to be Merakified if desire existed.


Important notes

  • This version's IOS image is based on 17.12.3 CCO. Upgrades to this version will result in a full system reload.

New feature highlights

  • Client Analytics
  • Device Uptime for MS390s
  • EEE (Energy Efficient Ethernet) Support (API Only)
  • Multi-auth with support for guest/failed/critical
  • RADIUS Caching
  • VLAN to SGT mapping

General fixed issues

  • Fixed an issue that in some circumstances prevented switches from restoring a safe configuration after incorrect configuration had been applied (i.e. disabling uplink)
  • Fixed an issue where an event with system information could be generated when a support data bundle was created

Ms390 fixed issues

  • Resolved an issue that could prevent link aggregation configuration from being applied when the active member rebooted in an MS390 stack configured for cross-stack link aggregation

General known issues

  • MS390 stack configuration may experience high memory consumption and as a result could lead to authentication failures. Reloading the active switch clears the issue temporarily.
  • MS390 stacks may fail to apply new configurations fetched from the network. This results from an issue with the NETCONF application, leading the system to revert to the previously stored configuration.
  • Meraki native switches move LACP ports to an active forwarding state if configured. This can cause loops when connecting to an MS390 or other Catalyst switch unless the bundles are configured on the Catalyst side first. All Meraki native ports are configured in passive LACP mode so that loops do not occur between Meraki native switches (always present)
  • Switch Port Packet Counter live tool shows 0 packets on uplinks for all fields except for Live Data

Ms390 known issues

  • MS390 stacks may experience an unexpected reboot when both active and standby EHSA are down

Kind of a big deal
Kind of a big deal

Indeed, I wonder what was truly broken!

Getting noticed

Yeah, was wondering that myself. Running the software on several 9300X's, would be nice to know if it's going to "explode on me" any time soon 😉 

Getting noticed

According to my SE CS 17.1.1 has caused some migration issues, for those using CS17.1.1 already, who stay in cloud management, there should be no problem. Fix expected this week.
