Restrictions and Cautions


When configuring the Switch 4800G, be sure that you are aware of these restrictions and cautions: 1) 2) VLAN ACLs cannot take effect on QinQ-enabled ports because of implementation limitations. When the configuration of port isolation conflicts with the redirect action configured with QoS, the port isolation configuration overrides. For example, assume ports g1/0/1 and g1/0/2 belong to a port isolation group and the QoS policy applied on g1/0/1 contains a traffic behavior to redirect traffic to g1/0/2. When receiving traffic matching the QoS policy, port g1/0/1 will not redirect it to port g1/0/2, because both ports are members of a port isolation group, which prevents them from forwarding traffic to each other. 3) The broadcast/multicast/unknown unicast suppression threshold configured as a percentage of the total bandwidth in port view is accurate only for 64-byte packets. This is because the chip supports only broadcast suppression by PPS, and the system converts the percentage into PPS per 64 bytes. Thus, you are recommended to configure storm suppression by PPS. 4) The virtual cable test (VCT) function will fail if the connected peer port works at 100 Mbps in forced mode.

5)

To perform auto upgrade successfully, make sure that the slave switches have adequate free flash memory. When the boot file version of a slave is different from that of the master, the 4800G stack supports auto upgrade, with which the main boot file of the master is copied automatically to the slave. If a boot file with the same name is found on the slave, the file is overwritten automatically. If no boot file with the same name is found on the slave and the flash is inadequate, auto upgrade fails, and the system displays that Slot id auto-update failed because free space of flash is not enough. In this case, the slave stays in the intermediate state.

Configuration Changes in S4800G-CMW520- R2202


With S4800G-CMW520-R2202, the default of the ip ttl-expires command changes from disabled to enabled. If the undo form of the command is configured, it will be displayed. If you are using an earlier version configured with the undo ip ttl-expires command (the default), which is not displayed in the configuration file, the command will be enabled after you upgrade the application software to version S4800G-CMW520-R2202.
