Sub Interface

I failed to configure subinterfaces (VLANS) on the physical F0/0 of a Cisco 2600 router.
It would'nt take the "encapsualtion" and "ip address" commands:

Router#config t
Router(config)#int f0/0.1
Router(config-subif)#encapsulation ?
% Unrecognized command
Router(config-subif)#encapsulation dot1q10
                      ^
% Invalid input detected at '^' marker.

Router(config-subif)#ip address 192.168.2.254 255.255.255.0
% Configuring IP routing on a LAN subinterface is only allowed if that
subinterface is already configured as part of an IEEE 802.10, IEEE 802.1Q,
or ISL vLAN.

Please help
Thank you very much

Apart from a small typo, you're doing it right, and the typo is in your second line, while the first line indicates the router doesn't support dot1q encapsulation.

The correct config is:

Interface fa 0/0.1
encapsulation dot1q 10 (notice the space between dot1q and 10)
ip address 192.168.2.254 255.255.255.0

If this doesn't work (and it seems it won't), do a show version so we can see which software you have. The 2600 SHOULD support dot1q trunking, so I suspect it's a software issue.

Don JohnstonInstructorCommented:
I suspect that your problem is that the IOS version or feature set doesn't support ethernet trunking.

Wander over here:

http://tools.cisco.com/ITDIT/CFN/jsp/index.jsp

Select "Search by feature"
Then enter "trunking" in the search box.
Then add "IEEE 802.1Q VLAN Trunking" and click "continue".

You can then select your platform and find out what IOS version and feature set you'll need.

Ok, that explains it. You need minimum IP PLUS feature set, while you only have IP.

Upgrade your IOS and you're good to go.

And you're config-register is by the way set to boot without loading config, I'd change that back to 0x2102.

Hi Hodepine,

What IOS should I use to get IP PLUS and do this router has enough memory for the upgrade:

Router#sh flash

I'm afraid you either have to upgrade your flash or downgrade to version 12.2:

12.2.46:

IP PLUS  
c2600-is-mz.122-46a.bin  
Release Date: 01/Aug/2007
Size: 10085.63 KB  (10327680 bytes)
Minimum Memory: DRAM:48 MB  Flash:16 MB

12.3.26:

IP PLUS  
c2600-is-mz.123-26.bin  
Release Date: 18/Mar/2008
Size: 17646.56 KB  (18070068 bytes)
Minimum Memory: DRAM:64 MB  Flash:32 MB  

None of the 12.3 IP PLUS images fits in 16 MB flash, they're all a bit too large.

What is the best way to go? Well, downgrading to 12.2 would be less of a fuss, but if you need functionality present only in 12.3 you'll need more flash memory.

From the setup I've seen so far, I'm guessing you'll do fine with 12.2, but that's just a guess, I don't know what else you want to do on it.

Correction:

There are a couple of IP PLUS BASIC images you could get. They won't give you all the functionality of IP PLUS, but most likely you won't need it:

IP PLUS BASIC W/O SWITCHING

HodepineCommented:
And yet another correction:

The "IP PLUS BASIC W/O SWITCHING" won't do, so only the second option will work (if other features you need are present).

You need to reboot your router.

The router loads the IOS-image from flash to ram during boot up. As you see in your show version:

System image file is "flash:c2600-i-mz.123-22.bin". That's the image it's currently running from ram (even though it says flash, flash is just the storage).

That's your old IP feature set image. Reboot, and it'll load the new IOS.

Just so it's mentioned: When the router boots up it goes through a process with first checking itself (power on self-test/POST), then it checks the configuration register to see how to behave with IOS/config among other things. It defaults to just load the first image it finds in flash. If you have more than one image (which I'm sure you don't since you have a 16 mb flash, and space have been an issue), you might have to specify which image to boot with the boot system command. But again, shouldn't be a problem here, just reboot and you should be fine.

After reboot it becomes worse, the router complaints:

Hi Hodepine,
That was my mistake, I got the wrong image.
 It boots up OK with this image: c2600-i-mz.123-22.bin (the original one)
I think this router flash is only 16M, not enough to run IP Plus image.
Router#dir flash:

HodepineCommented:
From what I saw in your show version, you have 16 MB of flash and 48 MB of RAM, and yes, that IP PLUS BASIC image needs 64. Didn't notice that when I recommended it, sorry.

Seems like your only option without changing the hardware is downgrading to 12.2:

IP PLUS  
c2600-is-mz.122-46a.bin  
Release Date: 01/Aug/2007
Size: 10085.63 KB  (10327680 bytes)
Minimum Memory: DRAM:48 MB  Flash:16 MB

That image works for you with both flash and RAM.

Hi Hodepine,

I downgrade the router to c2600-is-mz.122-46a.bin , every thing looks good.
I can configure the subinterfaces on the router now
Thank you very much for your expertise and patience

Hi Hodepine,

Can we copy the image from the flash to our PC?

Thanks

HodepineCommented:
Yes, with a tftp server.

Install a tftp server on your computer, and do copy flash tftp, and it will ask you about ip address and filename.

It's great. It works quite well.  Thank you again.

May I ask you another question about PIX subinterfaces ?

I hope you don't mind

Sure, but I haven't touched a pix in ages, so you MIGHT be better off just asking a new PIX-question. I'll look for it and answer if I can.
