Re: Catalyst Flow Export wierdness.

I've been out of the hands-on config game for a while, so certain portions
of my clue is rusting. I knew the MSFC and the SUP both had their own
ideas about how things were supposed to go, but (especially with IOS
running on switches) wasn't 100% on the configuration behaviour. I can
look at the configs and see that v5 export is configured, but I don't see
an instruction to the SUP to export v5, which is what's tripping up my
collection. Netflow being something our engineers haven't worked with
extensively, and required configurations on recent IOS on Cats being
something I'm not up to speed on, there's a a divide between me saying
it's broken, and them saying that it's configured and that my tools are
So there's head scratching and finger pointing on both sides that just
needed a nudge. The versions didn't make the difference, the clued
respondants still saw the break for what it was.

You don't mention what version of IOS or what supervisor/PFC version
in the cat.
With 12.1 at least, the MSFC doesn't support version 7 flows, so for
traffic routed in software you will get a v5 flow, and for traffic
routed in hardware you'll get v7 if that's what you configured.
If you have sup2/PFC2 and IOS >= 12.1(13), you can configure the PFC
to export v5 as well, and get everything in the same format.
