AS9000/XR CDP (LLDP) Issue with Catalyst VLAN Trunk

Hello Community

I have a problem getting CDP (or LLDP) between ASR9000 (IOS-XR 5.3.4/6.1.4) and Catalyst Switches to work.

Case 1: Switch uses default trunk configuration = native VLAN1
CDP (or LLDP) works. Both devices see their neighbours.

 

Case 2: The connected Catalyst uses a trunk with native VLAN 666 (as an example)
"show cdp neighbour" on the switch shows the ASR9000.
But the ASR9000 does not show the switch!

 

Case 3: additional subinterface (Layer-3) on the ASR9000 with "encapsulation dot1q 666" suitable for the Catalyst native VLAN666.
Same behavior as Case2.

 

 

Configuration example CDP:

--------------------

ASR with L3 interface

Wed Sep 13 06:03:44.859 UTC
interface Gigabit Ethernet 0/0/1/19.666
encapsulation dot1q 666
!

--------------------

 

switch
Current configuration: 152 bytes
!
interface FastEthernet0/9
switchport trunk encapsulation dot1q
switchport trunk native vlan 666
switchport fashion trunk
tensioning tree portfast
end


Switch#sh cdp neighbors fastEthernet 0/9
Capability Codes: R - Router, T - Trans Bridge, B - Source Route Bridge

But no CDP switch to ASR.....

--------------------

 


Same behavior with LLDP (also with "lldp subinterfaces enable")
Do you have any advice?

Thank you very much!
Holger

hi Holger,

there are several things you could do on the asr9k side to see what's happening with CDP packets:

* check the relevant NP counters (there's a counter for received CDP and two counters for received LLDP packets)
* if these are incrementing, dump the CDP or LLDP packets to confirm the encapsulation that's used by the peer
* https://supportforums.cisco.com/t5/service-providers-documents/asr9000-xr-how-to-capture-dropped-or-lost-packets/ta-p/3140717
* https://supportforums.cisco.com/t5/service-providers-documents/asr9000-xr-troubleshooting-packet-drops-drops-in-np-microcode/ta-p/3155145
* check the LPTS static policer counter to see whether packets are punted to LC CPU: "sh lpts pifib hardware static-police location ..."
* look into CDP or LLDP traces

CDP on sub-interface won't work on XR, but LLDP should work with "lldp subinterfaces enable".

hope this helps,
