I would like some guidance on QoS/Auto-QOS on the 2960-L.
Image is c2960l-universalk9-mz.152-6.E.bin
Feature Navigator says various QoS/Auto-QoS features are supported;
Auto QoS 1.5, Auto QoS - VoIP, Auto QoS VoIP enhancement.
I have a LanLite right-to-use license :-
Switch#sh lic right-to-use summ
License Name Type Period left
Lanlite permanent Lifetime
Trying to use any 'auto qos' commands fails.
I can turn on 'mls qos' globally, and the only interface
mls qos trust option is 'cos' - even if you enter after mls qos trust, it adds cos on the end.
Switch(config-if)#mls qos trust ?
cos cos keyword
Switch(config-if)#mls qos trust
Switch(config-if)#do sh run int g 0/1
Current configuration : 55 bytes
mls qos trust cos
it says -
Note To use auto-QoS, the switch must be running the LAN Base image.
Q * Is the Feature Navigator incorrect ??
In the Release Notes for my image www.cisco.com/c/en/us/td/docs/switches/lan/catalyst2960l/software/15-2_6_e/release_note/rn-1526e2-2960l.html
there is a note about LanLite+
The Catalyst 2960-L switch supports the LAN Lite+ feature set. This provides standard Layer 2 security and quality of service (QoS) features, and up to 256 active VLANs. The switch models have reduced functionality and scalability with entry level features in Layer 2, and support Virtual Stacking.
Q * Are LANlite and LANLite+ different things, or the same ?
Ideally I would like to use auto qos to trust markings coming from elsewhere in the network on my uplinks, and to trust handsets on access ports on the switch.
Failing that I need to be able to match in a class-map used in a port policy, in order to match, ideally dscp ef, or even the IP subnet of phones. Neither of these is possible with the LAN Lite license.
Q * Do we need another license like LAN Base to be able to support QoS or even better, Auto-QoS
I know there are several q's here, but a number of documents suggest things that we don't see in front of us.
Solved! Go to Solution.
Thanks Mark for the prompt response.
Checking your posted link there are details of -S products being LANLite and -L being LAN base.
my product id is : -
the front of my product says 2960-L but the cli definitely says LANLite as per the posted output.
Also the bullet points in your reply, were they relating to LAN Base ?
• Additional QoS capabilities: The LAN Base IOS supports policing, class and policy maps, differentiated services code point (DSCP), AutoQoS, and configurable queue weights, buffers, and thresholds
@Mark Malone Thank you for the info, that demonstrates nicely that LAN Base would do the job.
It's a shame Feature Navigator is misleading -
Thanks again for your help.
