This section documents supplemental changes that have been added to the Release Notes for Cisco ONS 15600 Release 9.1 since the production of the Cisco ONS 15600 System Software CD for Release 9.1.

Using the Bug ToolKit

In Cisco ONS 15600 Software Release 9.1 and later, use the Bug ToolKit to view the list of outstanding and resolved bugs in a release. This section explains how to use the Bug ToolKit.

Search Bugs

This section explains how to use the Bug ToolKit to search for a specific bug or to search for all the bugs in a specified release.


Step 1 Go to http://tools.cisco.com/Support/BugToolKit/action.do?hdnAction=searchBugs.

You will be prompted to log into Cisco.com. After you login, the Bug Toolkit page opens.

Step 2 Click Launch Bug Toolkit.

Step 3 To search for a specific bug, enter the bug ID in the Search for Bug ID field and click Go in the Search Bugs tab.

To search for all the bugs in a specified release, enter the following search criteria in the Search Bugs tab:

Select Product Category—Select Optical Networking.

Select Products—Select Cisco ONS 15600 Series from the list.

Software Version—Select 9.10 to view the list of outstanding and resolved bugs in Cisco ONS 15600 Software Release 9.1.

Search for Keyword(s)—Separate search phrases with boolean expressions (AND, NOT, OR) to search within the bug title and details.

Advanced Options—You can either perform a search using the default search criteria or define custom criteria for an advanced search. To customize the advanced search, select Use custom settings for severity, status, and others and provide the following information:

Severity—Select the severity level.

Status—Select Open, Fixed, or Terminated.

Select Open to view all the open bugs. To filter the open bugs, clear the Open check box and select the appropriate sub-options that appear below the Open check box. The sub-options are New, Held, More, Open, Waiting, Assigned, Forwarded, Postponed, Submitted, and Information Required. For example, if you want to view only new bugs in Cisco ONS 15600 Software Release 9.1, only select New.

Select Fixed to view fixed bugs. To filter fixed bugs, clear the Fixed check box and select the appropriate sub-options that appear below the fixed check box. The sub-options are Resolved or Verified.

Select Terminated to view terminated bugs. To filter terminated bugs, clear the Terminated check box and select the appropriate sub-options that appear below the terminated check box. The sub-options are Closed, Junked, and Unreproducible. Select multiple options as required.

Advanced—Select the Show only bugs containing bug details check box to view only those bugs that contain detailed information, such as symptoms and workarounds.

Modified Date—Select this option if you want filter bugs based on the date on which the bugs were last modified.

Results Displayed Per Page—Select the appropriate option from the list to restrict the number of results that appear per page.

Step 4 Click Search. The Bug Toolkit displays the list of bugs based on the specified search criteria.

Export to Spreadsheet

The Bug ToolKit provides the following options to export bugs to a spreadsheet:

Click Export All to Spreadsheet link in the Search Results page under the Search Bugs tab. Specify file name and folder name to save the spreadsheet. All the bugs retrieved by the search will be exported.

Click Export All to Spreadsheet link in the My Notifications tab. Specify file name and folder name to save the spreadsheet. All the saved bugs in all the groups will be exported.

If you are unable to export the spreadsheet, log into the Technical Support Website at
http://www.cisco.com/cisco/web/support/index.html for more information or call Cisco TAC (1-800-553-2447).

New Features and Functionality

This section highlights new features and functionality for Release 9.1. For detailed documentation of each of these features, consult the user documentation.

New Software Features and Functionality

The following new software features are added for Release 9.1:

Backup NTP/SNTP Server

Shelf Voltage and Temperature

Backup NTP/SNTP Server

CTC/TL1 allows you to specify a backup NTP/SNTP server along with the primary NTP/SNTP server. When the primary NTP/SNTP server fails, the node uses the secondary NTP/SNTP server to synchronize its date and time. If both the primary and secondary NTP/SNTP servers fail, an SNTP-FAIL alarm is raised. The node checks for the availability of the primary or secondary NTP/SNTP server at regular intervals until it can fetch the time from any one of the NTP/SNTP servers.

Shelf Voltage and Temperature

The shelf (input) voltage and temperature are displayed on the ONS 15600 chassis. The voltage supplied to the shelf (in millivolts) is displayed in the voltage area of the pane. The temperature of the shelf (in degrees Celsius) is displayed in the temperature area of the pane. You can view the temperature using the CTC/TL1.

The temperature measured by the TCC2/TCC2P sensors appear on the LCD screen in the ONS 15600 chassis.


Note The input voltage is displayed in CTC/TL1 only when the customer access panel (CAP2) card is installed in the ONS 15600 chassis.
