Resolved Caveats for Release 8.6
This section documents caveats resolved in Release 8.6.
This section documents resolved caveats for Alarms in Release 8.6.
CSCsj96051—CE100 port transitions from IS,AINS to IS when CARLOSS alarm is raised
Ports on CE1000 and CE100T cards with a CARLOSS alarm will transition into IS state, if the state is changed from OOS,DSBLD to IS,AINS and provisioned with zero soak-time. This issue has been resolved.
Common Control Cards
This section documents resolved caveats for Common Control Cards in Release 8.6.
CSCsr41128—TCC card reboots when many sockets are created
The traffic from a port scanner creates many sockets, causing the TCC card to reboot. This issue has been resolved.
This section documents resolved caveats for CTC in Release 8.6.
CSCsi29266— CTC displays BIC_UNKNOWN
The CTC inventory window displays BIC_UNKNOWN, when EIA BIC is not installed in either the A or B position on ONS 15454-SA or 15454-SA-HD chassis. This issue has been resolved.
Data I/O Cards
This section documents resolved caveats for Data I/O Cards in Release 8.6.
CSCsm21404—Packet loss with soft reset of CE-MR-6/CE-MR-10 card
The traffic is affected for 1000 milliseconds when a CE-MR-6/CE-MR-10 card is soft reset after an SW-LCAS circuit is created between the CE-MR-6/CE-MR-10 card and the CE-1000-4 card. The traffic is affected for 30 milliseconds when the CE-MR-6/CE-MR-10 card is soft reset after an SW-LCAS circuit is created between the CE-1000 card and the CE-MR-6/CE-MR-10 card. This issue has been resolved.
CSCsq14370—ifspeed query results in incorrect value for circuit size
When queried, the ifspeed parameter returns a value of 1000 for the POS port regardless of the circuit size provisioned on CE-MR-6/CE-MR-10 cards. This issue has been resolved.
CSCsk04872— Multiple Low Order VCATs do not transition to IS when created in TL1 or CTC
In Release 8.0, when multiple members (more than 16) are added to a low-order VCAT group using TL1 scripts or CTC with the service state set to In-Service (IS), not all members report being in IS state. This issue has been resolved.
Maintenance and Administration
This section documents resolved caveats for Maintenance and Administration in Release 8.6.
Caution VxWorks is intended for qualified Cisco personnel only. Use of VxWorks by customers is not recommended, nor is it supported by the Cisco Technical Assistance Center. Inappropriate use of VxWorks commands can have a negative and service-affecting impact on your network. Consult the troubleshooting guide for your release and platform for appropriate troubleshooting procedures. To exit without logging in, enter a Control-D (press the Control and D keys at the same time) at the Username prompt. To exit after logging in, type "logout" at the VxWorks shell prompt.
Note Cisco Transport Controller (CTC) does not support adding or creating more than five circuits in auto-ranged provisioning. This restriction is intentional.
Note In releases earlier than Cisco ONS Release 4.6, you could independently set proxy server gateway settings; however, with Cisco ONS Release 4.6.x and later, this is no longer the case. To retain the integrity of existing network configurations, settings made in a pre-4.6 release are not changed upon upgrading to Cisco ONS Release 7.x. Current settings are displayed in Cisco Transport Controller (whether they were inherited from an upgrade or they were set using the current GUI).
CSCsu49095—Pointer Justification counter does not increment for more than 4 STSs
The Pointer Justification counter does not increment for all STSs on CTX cards on the Cisco ONS 15310-CL node. This issue has been resolved.
CSCsv13893—Admin state change from IS,NR to OOS,DSBLD fails
Changing the admin state of an electrical port or optical port from IS,NR to OOS, DSBLD fails. This issue has been resolved.
CSCsk84133— Unable to archive audit log
The user cannot perform an audit log and the system displays "The archive is up to date" message. This issue has been resolved.
CSCsv14375— Shared secret key greater than 16 characters corrupts after an upgrade
A shared secret key greater than 16 characters corrupts after an upgrade from Release 7.20 to Release 8.52. This issue has been resolved.
This section documents resolved caveats for NCP found in Release 8.6.
CSCsx37297—FTP port issue for TCP connect Scan
Line cards do not boot up, and software downloading and database synchronization between Active and Standby TSC cards fail under the following condition:
•The FTP server task is blocked at the external FTP socket because of the execution of port scanners.
The workaround is to perform an FTP to the node. This issue has been resolved.
This section documents resolved caveats for Path Protection in Release 8.6.
CSCsw86999 —AIS-V alarm does not clear for STS that does not have circuit created on VT1
An AIS-V alarm does not clear for an STS circuit that does not have a circuit created on VT1. This issue has been resolved.
