Issue with "ip name-server vrf [vrf-name]" command on Catalyst 6504-E

Hi All,

I am facing with an issue with one command on Catalyst 6504-E. According to the IOS Command reference the command: ip name-server [vrf vrf-nameserver-address1 [server-address2...server-address6]  with the vrf option was introduced fisrt in the IOS version 12.4T.

I try to configure the dns server IP addresses to my management VRF. I have a management Loopback together with the routing for the management devices (jump-server, nms, dns-server, etc.) I have no issue to reach the servers in the VRF. The problem is that I can't define the "ip name-server" in the VRF. It is not VRF aware for me. The option doesn't exist, as you can see below (I copied form my CLI):

 

KD02-NORD(config)#ip name-server ?
  A.B.C.D     Domain server IP address (maximum of 6)
  X:X:X:X::X  Domain server IP address (maximum of 6)

KD02-NORD(config)#ip name-server

 

I have 2 different supervisors in several devices: a 2T and a 720. The IOS versions are used: s2t54-advipservicesk9-mz.SPA.151-1.SY1.bin and s72033-advipservicesk9_wan-vz.122-33.SXH8.bin.

 

Did anyone of you have the same issue? Do you maybe have an official answer from Cisco TAC?

 

Thank you for the answers in advance!


Regards, Istvan

Only an IOS upgrade can help

Only an IOS upgrade can help in this case. See answer from TAC below:
