IPPM enabled by CTC for an OCn trunk card is disabled automatically after two hours. This issue will be resolved in a future release.

Alarms

CSCse85355

The NE should report alarms or conditions on ingress port not on any internal ports. Alarm detected at the internal ports (TERM) side will be ingress map to the MON side. So the NE raises the STS-MON/VT-MON and STS-TERM/VT-TERM alarms or conditions on the STS-MON/VT-MON ports, irrespective of the actual detection port (MON or TERM). If the user wants the customized severity to be reflected for a specifc STS/VT alarms, the alarm profile entities of both STS-MON and STS-TERM, if available, should be changed to the same severity.

Common Control Cards

CSCsc52028

The CTX 2500 card does not accept more than 52 ENE sessions. Figuring 16 ENE sessions per GNE session, the expected ENE logins for 7 GNE sessions is 112, whereas the CTX 2500 accepts only 52. This issue will not be resolved.

TL1


Note To be compatible with TL1 and DNS, all nodes must have valid names. Node names should contain alphanumeric characters or hyphens, but no special characters or spaces.


CSCsc51017

When multiple TL1 GNE and ENE sessions are created on a 30+ node network, some of the TL1 sessions might continue to be displayed in the user login pane under the network view, even when the sessions have been closed. If this occurs, restart CTC. This issue will be resolved in a future release.
