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

Trap Configuration for CDT 2.0

Launching Service Managers from MWTM

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

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.

Trap Configuration for CDT 2.0

CSCsk60334

If you configure Cisco Data Telecommunications (CDT) 2.0 for use with the MWTM, you must set up CDT 2.0 to send traps that conform to Trap Version 2 (V2 style). Do not configure CDT 2.0 to send traps that use Trap Version 1 style.

Launching Service Managers from MWTM

CSCsl17461

When you set the MWTM personalities to manage CSG and GGSN nodes, the MWTM Tools menu provides these launch commands in the MWTM client:

Tools > CiscoWorks > CSG Service Manager

Tools > CiscoWorks > GGSN Service Manager


Note In the MWTM web interface, you click CiscoWorks in the navigation tree, then click CSG or GGSN in the right pane to launch the service manager.


When you launch one of these commands, the MWTM attempts to launch the URL of the service manager that resides on the LMS server to which your MWTM client is currently connected. However, if the service manager is not actually installed on the LMS server, you will receive an HTTP 404 error. To prevent this error, ensure that the service managers are installed on the LMS server to which you are connected. Otherwise, you should remove the CSG or GGSN personality setting with the mwtm manage command.

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.


Broken Pipe Exceptions

An error might occur after sending end packet which results in a broken pipe exception. The following exception with corresponding stacktrace might occur. The MWTM captures this exception in the sgmConsoleLog.txt file:

java.net.SocketException: Broken pipe

This exception might occur when you try to 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.


There is no workaround for this limitation, but you can safely ignore these log messages.


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

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: [???]

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.

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.

Open MWTM Caveats

This section describes caveats that exist in the MWTM 6.1 software.


CSCsg92892

Symptom    When provisioning ITP nodes from the Provision tab of the web interface, some provisioning operations might fail on the node with these symptoms and conditions:

Provisioning Action
Symptom
Condition

Changing the media type for FastEthernet or GigabitEthernet interface

Invalid input 
detected

FastEthernet or GigabitEthernet on the node does not support the media type configuration option, but the user specified a media type in the MWTM provisioning request.

Changing speed for FastEthernet or GigabitEthernet interface

Invalid input 
detected

FastEthernet or GigabitEthernet on the node does not support the speed configuration option, but the user specified the speed in the MWTM provisioning request.

Configuring MTP3 User Adaptation (M3UA) or SCCP User Adaptation (SUA) offload, or Local Peer offload

Error: at least one 
address must reside 
on slot xx

The user specified an IP address that does not exist for the specified card slot.

Configuring M3UA or SUA offload, or Local Peer offload

Error: XXX is 
already offloaded 
to this linecard 
slot=xx

The user specified a target card slot that is already in use by another M3UA or SUA offload, or Local Peer offload.

Note The ITP does not allow mixed types between M3UA or SUA offload, and Local Peer offload.

Configuring the line priority for the clock source line option on the Cisco 2600 T1/E1 controller

% Invalid input 
detected at '^' 
marker.

The '^' marker points to the line priority: primary or secondary.

While configuring the clock source line priority option on the T1/E1 controller, the user specified the primary or secondary option on the line, but the WAN Interface Card (WIC) card has only one port, and does not support the line priority option.

Configuring the secondary line priority for the clock source line option on the Cisco 7xxx ITP T1/E1 controller

% Invalid input 
detected at '^' 
marker.

The '^' marker points to the secondary line priority: primary or secondary.

When configuring the clock source secondary line priority option on the T1/E1 controller, the user specified a number that is greater than the supported range on the device. Although the MWTM allows values 1-72, some cards only support 1-8 or 1-16.


Workaround   None. The user must know the ITP card information and specify correct values in the provisioning request.


CSCsu02993

Symptom    When IOS running-config contains the following characters in the object name, MWTM web user interface may exhibit unexpected behavior:

Double quote (")

Less than (<)

Conditions   When IOS running-config contains following characters in the object name:

Double quote (")

Less than (<)

Additional MWTM provisioning or other functions may behave unexpectedly when IOS running-config contains following characters:

!,@,#,$,%,^,*,(,),_, and -

Workaround   Remove special characters from IOS running-config.

Open Device Caveats

This section documents caveats associated with the devices that the MWTM manages. These caveats can affect the capability of the MWTM to manage the associated features. Follow the guidelines in the workarounds for these defects.


CSCsg77152

Symptom    When you configure the following parameter for an SCTP link:

 retransmit-cwnd-rate <rate> sctp-fast-retransmit

the sctp-fast-retransmit portion is not saved in the configuration, and is ignored at the next reload.

Conditions   Tune the sctp-fast-retransmit parameter for retransmit-cwnd-rate.

Workaround   Reconfigure the parameter after reloading the device.


CSCsh13017

Symptom    The MWTM login credentials might not work if you run the no enable secret command on the active RAN Service (RAN SVC) Module.

Conditions   During failover, the running configuration on the active RAN service card merges with the RAN protection card. As a result, any baseline configuration command that exists on the protection card but not on the active card will be applied.

Workaround   For all RAN service cards:

Apply the enable-secret configuration option.

Define these credentials in the MWTM.
