Unsupported IOS Releases in MWTM 6.1.7(contd)

Limitations and Restrictions

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

Provisioning Timeout

SSH-Enabled Nodes

INSTANCE_NUMBER on Single-Instance ITP

Multiprocessor Multithread Vendor Exception

External SSH Client Use

SSH and Telnet Terminal

Tooltip Text Truncated

Credentials for Nodes with Multiple IP Address

Unprintable Characters

Symbol Style and Line Style Preferences

Java Exception

Avoid Colon (:) in ITP Object Names

Using MWTM With the RealPlayer Plugin Installed

Online Help System

APN and GTP Reports Disabled for GGSN on Patch Upgrade

Historical Statistics Collection During Upgrade

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.

SSH-Enabled Nodes

The MWTM Node > Home Page right-click menu option does not work correctly for the following SSH-enabled IP Transfer Point (ITP) nodes:

Cisco 2600

Cisco 7200

Cisco 7300

Cisco 7500

Cisco 7600

The browser launches, as expected, but the user is not prompted for login information.


Note This limitation exists for any ITP node running the 12.2(x) IOS with SSH enabled.


INSTANCE_NUMBER on Single-Instance ITP

Symptom    If a command with INSTANCE_NUMBER is included in the UserCommands.ts file, the instance number will appear on all nodes in the GUI. If you run this command on a node that does not have multi-instance enabled, it fails.

Workaround   If you have a network with both single-instance and multi-instance nodes, you must configure a separate set of troubleshooting commands for each node type in the UserCommands.ts file. Do this by grouping the commands for each type under a separate category.

Multiprocessor Multithread Vendor Exception

Sometimes when using the MWTM client on a Solaris multi-processor computer, an exception occurs when the topology window is open and you are manipulating views. The workaround is to close the topology window, then reopen it.

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.

SSH and Telnet Terminal

The SSH and Telnet terminals that are included with the MWTM provide basic terminal functionality. They do not support non-English character sets or the UNIX curses library (for example, colors). If these, or other, additional terminal functions are required, you can configure the MWTM to use an external SSH or Telnet program.

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.

Credentials for Nodes with Multiple IP Address

Credentials for a node are associated with a unique IP address. If a node has more than one accessible IP address, functions that require credentials might not resolve to a credential based on the selected IP address, and the requested function would fail. The MWTM functions that require credentials include:

Discovery of ONS and RAN_SVC nodes

Troubleshooting

Provisioning

Route, MLR Address, and Global Title Translation (GTT) table deployment

To work around this limitation, specify the credentials for all accessible IP addresses for a node.

Unprintable Characters

CSCse81393

In various GUI and web pages, simple text fields might contain unprintable characters. An example is the Model Name PID field for a RAN service (RAN_SVC) card in an ONS chassis. This is a cosmetic problem and does not affect functionality.

Symbol Style and Line Style Preferences

CSCsg83861

The preferences dialog box of the MWTM client interface allows you to customize the way that data series appear in charts. You can specify series color, line style, and symbol style. However, symbol style and line style preferences do not work when displaying real-time charts for MSU rates and for RAN backhauls and shorthauls.

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.

Avoid Colon (:) in ITP Object Names

CSCsh58070

The following error messages may appear when performing these operations:

Operation
Error Message

Generating link report by using the sgmLinkStats.sh script

sgmgawk: cmd. line:45: (FILENAME=- FNR=???) 
fatal: division by zero

Attempting to import link and linkset report data

ERROR 38000: The exception 
'java.sql.SQLException: Invalid character 
string format for type SMALLINT.' was thrown 
while evaluating an expression.

Using the ITP route table deployment function

Invalid Linkset in Route Table: [???]

These error messages occur when ITP linkset, AS, and ASP names contain a colon (:). To prevent these errors, do not use the colon (:) in ITP linkset, AS, and ASP names.


Note In general, the MWTM does not support ITP AS, ASP, or linkset names that contain special characters, such as: !@#$%^&*()+=[]{};',./\:"<>?|

The supported characters in ITP AS, ASP, and linkset names are: [a-z], [A-Z], [0-9], - and _.


Unprintable Characters in GUI

On some GUI windows and web pages simple text fields might contain unprintable characters. An example is the Model Name PID field for a RAN service (RAN_SVC) card in an ONS chassis. This might occur one some RAN_SVC cards in an ONS chassis.

Appearance of MSU Rates Real-Time Charts

The preferences dialog box of the MWTM client interface allows you to customize the way that data series appear in charts. You can specify series color, line style, and symbol style. However, symbol style and line style preferences do not work when displaying real-time charts for MSU rates and for RAN backhauls and shorthauls.

Provisioning Problem Due to Credentials

After switching the SNMP IP address, provisioning stops working due to credentials. Credentials for a node are associated with a unique IP address. If a node has more than one accessible IP address, functions that require credentials might not resolve to a credential based on the selected IP address, and the requested function would fail. The MWTM functions that require credentials include:

Discovery of ONS and RAN_SVC nodes

Troubleshooting

Provisioning

Route and Global Title Translation (GTT) table deployment

This might occur with nodes with multiple, accessible IP addresses with credentials set for a subset of those IP addresses. To work around this limitation, specify credentials for all accessible IP addresses for a node.


Special Characters in ITP AS/ASP/Linkset Names in Reports

The following error messages might appear when performing these operations:

Operation
Error Message

Generating link report by using the sgmLinkStats.sh script

sgmgawk: cmd. line:45: (FILENAME=- FNR=???) 
fatal: division by zero

ERROR 38000: The exception 
'java.sql.SQLException: Invalid character 
string format for type SMALLINT.' was thrown 
while evaluating an expression.

Using the ITP route table deployment function

Invalid Linkset in Route Table: [???]

The error messages occur when ITP linkset, AS, and ASP names contain a colon (:). To work around this problem, remove the colon (:) from ITP linkset, AS, and ASP names.

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.

Online Help System

The online help system is updated only during major release updates. New features added in patch releases (for example, 6.0.4) are not contained in the online help system. Instead, new features are documented in the release notes for the patch release.

APN and GTP Reports Disabled for GGSN on Patch Upgrade

CSCtj21269

If you enable GGSN reporting in MWTM 6.1.1 and then upgrade to MWTM 6.1.2 and apply the latest service pack, then APN reports are disabled. You may have to re-enable the APN reports even if they were previously enabled.

To enable APN reports, execute mwtm statreps apn command or from the web interface select "Reports" and enable APN.

Historical Statistics Collection During Upgrade

When you upgrade to MWTM 6.1.7 from an earlier version, there may be a temporary stop in the collection of data. This could result in a time gap shown in historical reports for shorter interval reports (For example, 15 minute reports). No intervention is required for collection to resume.

Important Notes

This section contains important notes about RAN Backhaul Utilization.

RAN Backhaul Utilization

When the backhaul utilization for transmit traffic exceeds 100%, the likely cause is oversubscription of the shorthaul links that constitute the backhaul. The backhaul utilization is the amount of traffic that the system attempted to send, not the amount that was actually sent. If utilization is greater than 100%, you should see queue drops or other errors during the same time period. A backhaul utilization of greater than 100% is possible for a heavily loaded link with some occasional oversubscription.
