Limitations and Restrictions

This section describes limitations and restrictions that are associated with the MWTM:

Provisioning Timeout

External SSH Client Use

Tooltip Text Truncated

Java Exception

Using MWTM With the RealPlayer Plugin Installed

Provisioning Timeout

When using the MWTM provisioning feature to modify the management interface, sometimes the operation fails with this message:

No prompt response

This response can occur when changing the duplex or speed attributes for the Ethernet interface. The response can also occur for other interface attributes that affect IP connectivity between the MWTM and the device.

The default setting for a provisioning operation timeout is 50 seconds. As a workaround, the system administrator can increase the TGS_OP_TIMEOUT attribute in the System.properties file to a higher value. You must restart the MWTM server for this change to take effect.

External SSH Client Use

If you enable the MWTM terminal proxy (mwtm termproxy) and use an external SSH terminal client to connect to a device, you might receive a warning message indicating a man-in-the-middle attack. This warning occurs because the MWTM server is operating as an SSH proxy to the device. In this scenario, ignore any warning messages indicating a man-in-the-middle attack. These warnings do not occur if you disable the MWTM terminal proxy or if you use the SSH terminal included with the MWTM.

Tooltip Text Truncated

The Firefox 2 browser truncates tool tips that contain long text strings (see Firefox bug 218223). The MWTM contains only a few tool tips that exhibit this problem. The problem is resolved in Firefox 3. The problem does not occur when using the Internet Explorer (IE) browser.

Java Exception

CSCsh15638

The following exception with corresponding stacktrace can occur. The MWTM captures this exception in the sgmConsoleLog.txt file:

java.net.SocketException: Broken pipe

This exception can occur when users access the MWTM web interface and frequently abort connections while the server is under heavy load (for example, during discovery). Clicking the Stop button on the web browser or navigating to a different web page before the current page finishes loading can cause this exception to occur.


Note The root cause of this condition is an internal bug in the Tomcat web application that ships with this release of the MWTM.


You can safely ignore these log messages.

Using MWTM With the RealPlayer Plugin Installed

If you use a computer that has the RealPlayer plugin installed, the Provision launch window will not work properly. When you change types on the Provision launch window, the provisioned item list will not refresh.

This is a known issue with the RealPlayer plugin. This issue occurs on both Internet Explorer and Firefox browsers.

Disable the RealPlayer plugin to use the Provision launch window. If you use Internet Explorer, you might need to reboot your computer after disabling the plugin. If you use Firefox, you might need to restart your browser after disabling the plugin.
