Alarms

This section documents caveats for Alarms in Release 8.5.4.

CSCsw90482—The LOM alarm raised on a VCG member clears wrongly

The LOM alarm raised on a VCG member clears wrongly after active CTX/XC reset or switch. This issue will be resolved in a future release.

CSCta34572—The UNEQ-V alarm does not clear on the optical port of the CTXMA card

The UNEQ-V alarm does not clear on the optical port of the CTXMA card for UPSR protected circuit under the following conditions:

1. Create UPSR protected VT circuit between the optical port and the DS1 port on the WBE card.

2. Inject UNEQ-V alarm.

3. Clear the UNEQ-V alarm. The alarm does not clear.

This issue will be resolved in a future release.

CSCta65811—The GFP-LFD alarm is raised and traffic is down

The GFP-LFD alarm is raised and traffic is down on HO (STS1, STS3c, VC3, VC4) HW-LCAS unprotected circuits, when AIS is injected on all the members of HW-LCAS circuit for a duration of more than 50ms and less than 300ms. The workaround is to create protected circuits or hard reset CEMR or MLMR cards. This issue will be resolved in a future release.

CSCsk21363— LOS alarm is raised on the ports that are in IS-AINS state

The LOS alarm is raised on the ports that are in IS-AINS state after switching the protection and upgrading the DS1-28 card to DS10-84 card. The conditions are:

1. Insert DS1-28 card (working card) in Slot 2.

2. Create VT1 circuits from port 15, DS-3 from port 2 and EC1 from port 1. The other two ports are in IS-AINS state.

3. Insert the DS1-84 card in Slot 1.

4. Set the DS1-28 card in Slot 1 as the protect card through CTC.

5. Change the card type to DS1-84.

6. Insert DS1-84 card in Slot 2 which had DS1-28 card previously. The LOS alarm is raised on port 1 (IS-AINS state) and port 2.

This issue will be resolved in a future release.

CSCsj26750—DS1_14 card shows Act(Green) LED, instead of Fail(RED) LED

When the card type in Cisco Transport Controller is changed from DS1_14 to DS1_E1_56 with a DS1-14 physical card in the slot, the LED in DS1_14 card will show Act(Green) LED, instead of Fail(RED) LED. This issue will be resolved in a future release.

CSCsl04155—Transient alarms occur when upgrading the software

Transient alarms occur under the following conditions:

When upgrading the software from Cisco ONS Release 4.x, 5.x, 6.x, and 7.x to Cisco ONS Release 8.5.4, the PMI and FDI alarms are raised. These alarms disappear after all the nodes of the network are upgraded to Cisco ONS Release 8.5.4

When upgrading the software from Cisco ONS Release 8.0 to Cisco ONS Release 8.5, the PMI, FDI, and APC-CORR-SKIP alarms are raised. These alarms disappear after all the nodes of the network are upgraded to Cisco ONS Release 8.5.4

This issue will be resolved in a future release.

CSCsl57383—OPWR_LFAIL and OPWR_HFAIL alarms do not correlate the downstream alarms

The OPWR_LFAIL and OPWR_HFAIL alarms do not properly corelate the downstream alarms when Multipath Optical (MPO) ribbon connected to the ADD port is removed from the ADD circuit passing through the WXC card. This issue will be resolved in a future release.

CSCsm92317—AIS alarm on the DS1 port is not suppressed

The AIS alarm on the DS1 port is not suppressed when the circuit is OOS, MT and the DS3 port is in service. This issue will be resolved in a future release.

CTC

This section documents caveats for CTC in Release 8.5.4.

CSCsk83405—Retrieval of OSPF diagnostics raises the OSPF Hello Fail alarm

Performing a retrieval of OSPF diagnostic information from the CTC network raises the OSPF Hello Fail alarm and the controller card is locked. This issue will be resolved in a future release.

CSCso08712—VCAT member cannot be put in an OOS,OOG state in an open VCAT circuit

A VCAT member cannot be put in an OOS,OOG state in an open VCAT circuit. This issue will be resolved in a future release.

CSCsq14054—CTC hangs when VCAT state changes from OOS,DSBLD to IS,AINS

CTC hangs when VCAT state transitions from OOS,DSBLD to IS,AINS. The workaround is to manually set the state for individual members.This issue will be resolved in a future release.

CSCsz16273—Unable to recover traffic after changing the state

Unable to recover traffic after changing the IS state to OOS-DSBLD state to IS operation on the GIGE port of the CEMR-6 cards. The IfInErrors and dot3StatsframeTooLong PM counters increment. The workaround is to transition the GIGE port from IS to OOS-DSBLD to IS to recover the traffic. This issue will be resolved in a future release.

CSCtf74465—Enabling the CI alarm feature on the WBE card with all frame formats in CTC and TL1

Users can enable the Customer Installation (CI) alarm feature on a WBE (wideband electrical) card for all the frame formats in CTC and TL1. However, the CI alarm feature is supported only for extended super frame (ESF) formats. There is no workaround for this issue. This issue will be resolved in a future release.

Data I/O Cards

This section documents caveats for Data I/O Cards in Release 8.5.4.

CSCso84751—LCAS members remain in LCAS Rx DNU alarm state after XC soft reset

After XC soft resets on CE-MR-10 or CE-MR-6 cards, LCAS members may remain in a LCAS Rx DNU alarm state. This issue will be resolved in a future release.

CSCsu30587—VT members remain idle after trunk card is pulled multiple times

VT members remain idle on pulling truck cards multiple times. The workaround is to move the affected members to OOG state and then IS state. This issue will be resolved in a future release.

Hardware

This section documents caveats for Hardware in Release 8.5.4.

CSCsk48116—Traffic on a CE-MR-6 card is dropped when a loopback is applied on any member of LCAS circuit

The traffic on a CE-MR-6 card is dropped when a loopback is applied on any member of the link capacity adjustment scheme (LCAS) circuit. Applying loopback potentially affects other members of the LCAS circuit as the differential delay threshold changes. This change in differential delay causes other members in the LCAS circuit to exceed the differential delay threshold raising the VCG-LOA alarm. The workaround is to assign OOS,OOG state for any member of LCAS circuit before applying loopback. This issue will be resolved in a future release.

CSCsl92447—Traffic in a split fiber circuit is dropped when the trunk port is shut down

The traffic in a split fiber circuit is dropped when the trunk port is shut down either by pulling the trunk port fiber or setting the admin state as OOS-DSBLD, and performing a soft reset on ML-MR card or hard reset on CE-MR-10 or CE-MR-6 card. This issue will be resolved in a future release.

Maintenance and Administration

This section documents caveats for Maintenance and Administration in Release 8.5.4.


Caution VxWorks is intended for qualified Cisco personnel only. Use of VxWorks by customers is not recommended, nor is it supported by the Cisco's 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 Planner (CTP) 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).


CSCsb88234—No plug-in message when a filler card is plugged in without prior provisioning

When a card is provisioned and a filler card is plugged in, a DBCHG with ENT-EQPT alarm is raised, but when a filler card is plugged in without a prior provision there is no plug-in message. Similarly, there is no message upon removal of the filler card. The workaround for TL1 is to issue an inventory call and the filler card appears. For Cisco Transport Controller, the card is displayed and removed when the card is removed. This issue will be resolved in a future release.

CSCsl04148—LINE-TX and LINE-RX power values for OSC-CSM card are not retrieved

When retrieving power values on Cisco Transport Controller and TL1, the LINE-TX and LINE-RX power values related to the OSC-CSM card are not retrieved. This issue will be resolved in a future release.

CSCsl04173—Active channel count is not reported correctly

When TCC is reset on a node that has either a LOS, LOS-P, or OPWR-LFAIL alarm, active channel count is not reported correctly in Cisco Transport Controller and TL1. This issue will be resolved in a future release.

CSCsu33773—STS PM counters cannot be cleared on protect STS in BLSR switched state

STS PM counters cannot be cleared on protect STS in BLSR switched state. No workaround is available for this issue. This issue will be resolved in a future release.

Path Protection

This section documents caveats for Path Protection in Release 8.5.4.

CSCsl52122—Revertive path protection circuit may not switch to protected path during activation

A revertive path protection circuit may not switch to protected path during activation when the path protection selector does not detect the working path as Active even if that path has errors. This issue will be resolved in a future release.

SNMP

This section documents caveats for SNMP in Release 8.5.4.

CSCso22135—Node reboots when the snmpwalk command is executed on entPhysicalDescr, cerentEnvMonVoltage

The node may reboot when the snmpwalk command is executed on entPhysicalDescr, cerentEnvMonVoltage. This issue will be resolved in a future release.

TL1

This section documents caveats for TL1 in Release 8.5.4.


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.


CSCsu24438—RTRV-TH-MOD2 command for the optical ports does not retrieve any value

The RTRV-TH-MOD2 command for the optical ports does not retrieve any value when the MONTYPE specified in the command is "ALL" with the FEND location, and returns the error "/* Far End Performance Monitoring Values Not Supported */." The workaround is to use the following commands to retrieve the threshold values of the optical ports:

RTRV-TH-MOD2::AID:1::,FEDN;

RTRV-TH-ALL:::1::,FEND;

RTRV-TH-MOD2::AID:1::<MONTYPE>,FEND;

This issue will be resolved in a future release.

Resolved Caveats for Release 8.5.4

This section documents caveats resolved in Release 8.5.4.

Alarms

This section documents resolved caveats for alarms in Release 8.5.4.

CSCsq29634—BKUPMEMP alarm raised on 15310-MA nodes running on Release 8.0 Software Version

Primary Nonvolatile Backup Memory Failure (BKUPMEMP) alarm is raised on several 15310-MA nodes running on Release 8.0 software version. This issue has been resolved.

CSCsw42641—CTNEQPT-PBPROT alarm is raised when filler card is inserted in CTX-MA card slot

CTNEQPT-PBPROT alarm is raised on CE-100T card with a filler card in the CTX-MA card slot. This issue has been resolved.

CSCsw45101—CONTBUS-IO alarm is raised when filler card is inserted in CTX-MA card slot

CONTBUS-IO-A or CONTBUS-IO-B alarm is raised on CE-100T card with filler card inserted in CTX-MA card slot. This issue has been resolved.

CSCso57480—The SF-P alarm is raised on the STS -3C circuit at a rate lower than the configured BER rate

The SF-P alarm is raised on the STS -3C circuit at a rate lower than the configured BER rate under the following conditions:

1. Create an STS-3C circuit on the optical ports of the CTXMA card.

2. Configure 10E-4 signal failure bit error rate (BER) on that circuit.

The SF-P alarm is raised when the BER rates vary from 10E-5 or above.

This issue has been resolved.

CSCsw45040—CONTBUS-CLK-A and CONTBUS-CLK-B alarms are raised

The CONTBUS-CLK-A alarm is reported on the WBE-28 or WBE84 cards with filler card in Slot 3, and the CONTBUS-CLK-B alarm is reported on the WBE-28 or WBE84 cards with filler card in Slot 4 under the following conditions:

a. When the filler card is already present in Slot 3 or Slot 4, and a WBE-28 or WBE84 card is inserted in Slot 1 or Slot 2 or Slot 5, or Slot 6.

b. When the WBE-28 or WBE84 card is already present and the filler card is inserted in Slot 3 or Slot 4, and the WBE card or the CTXMA card is reset

This issue has been resolved.

CSCsu47466—DS1 alarms incorrectly raised or suppressed

Alarms are incorrectly raised or suppressed against the first three DS1 ports of the WBE28/WBE84 card. The workaround is to manually edit the AdminState of the DS1 port after rebooting. This issue has been resolved.

CSCsj04880—The LED will not glow when the LOF alarm is raised

The LED will not glow when the LOF alarm is raised on the DS3 protection port of DS1-84 card under the following conditions:

1. Create 1:1 protection group on the DS1-84 card

2. Raise an LOF alarm on the protection port.

3. Remove the active card.

This issue has been resolved.

CSCsg84470—Unable to preprovision the WBE card in Slot 1 when Slot 2 has MEA alarm

If the WBE card is inserted in Slot 1 when there is an MEA alarm in Slot 2 (peer slot), the card in Slot 1 is detected as "unknown". On rebooting the CTX card, the card in Slot 1 is detected as the active card even when the MEA alarm is present in Slot 2. This is because the card in Slot 1 comes up first and then the card in Slot 2. This issue has been resolved.

CSCsu64887—LOS alarm does not clear

The critical LOS alarm does not clear on the DS3 ports of DS1-28/DS3 card. The LOS alarm must be demoted to minor after deleting the circuits. This issue has been resolved.

CTC

This section documents resolved caveats for CTC in Release 8.5.4.

CSCsm85843—CTC displays the STS circuit in ROLL_PENDING state when a bridge and roll is performed

The Circuit tab in CTC displays the STS circuit in the ROLL_PENDING state when a Bridge and Roll is performed under the following conditions:

1. Starting a Bridge and Roll on an STS circuit that is on the only circuit bearing port on a MRC card or a fixed rate card.

2. During a manual Bridge and Roll, performing the COMPLETE step but not the FINISH step.

3. Deleting the fixed rate card or the port or PPM on the MRC card.

The Roll object still exists on the node even though the parent object is deleted and no pool for the rollFrom Path field exits in the Roll Object database. The Circuit tab in CTC will display the circuit in the ROLL_PENDING state and the Roll tab will not have an entry to finish the roll. This issue has been resolved.

Path Protection

This section documents resolved caveats for path protection in Release 8.5.4.

CSCsj89651—Inconsistent behavior with protection lock out

Inconsistent behavior with protection lock out on the DS1-28/DS3-EC1-3 cards under the following conditions:

1. Create 1:1 protection on DS1-28/DS3-EC1-3. The STS1 traffic is smooth.

2. Apply a lock-on to a working card in Slot 5 and then a lock-out to the protect card. The STS1 traffic is smooth.

3. Remove the working card in Slot 5. The traffic is lost and a critical IMPROPER REMOVAL alarm is raised.

4. Remove the lock-out applied on the protect card. The traffic switches to protect even when lock-on is still present on the working card.

This issue has been resolved.

CSCta19934—SF-V condition persists on Protect Path

When the circuit state is changed from IS to OOS,DSBLD and again reverted to IS with the SF-V condition present on the VT UPSR destination working path, the SF-V condition remains on the protect path. This issue has been resolved.

CSCsj91554—The WKSWBK condition is reported on the 1:1 protection group of DS1-84 card

The Switched Back to Working (WKSWBK) condition is reported on the 1:1 protection group of DS1-84 card even though working card is not equipped. The conditions are:

1. Configure a non-revertive 1:1 protection group with the DS1-84 cards

2. Remove working card.

3. Soft reset the protect card.

This issue has been resolved.

TL1

This section documents resolved caveats for TL1 in Release 8.5.4.

CSCso46468—The TL1 command does not deny the creation of provisionable patchcords

You can create the provisionable patchcords on the OC-3 or OC-12 ports by using the Ent-lnkterm TL1 command. This issue has been resolved.

Maintenance and Administration

This section documents resolved caveats for Maintenance and Administration in Release 8.5.4.


Caution VxWorks is intended for qualified Cisco personnel only. Use of VxWorks by customers is not recommended, nor is it supported by the Cisco's 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 Planner (CTP) 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).


CSCsq78149—Transit from the OOS-AU,AINS&FLT&OOG state to the OOS-AUMA,MT&FLT&OOG state is denied

Transit from the OOS-AU,AINS&FLT&OOG state to the OOS-AUMA,MT&FLT&OOG state is not allowed for ED operation with OOS,OOG under the following conditions:

1. Create open VCAT HW LCAS member with OOS,OOG state with no traffic connected

2. Move the circuit state to IS,AINS before the fault is detected. Due to carrier loss, the circuit will be in the OOS-AU,AINS&FLT&OOG state.

3. Edit the circuit to change the state to OOS,OOG. It is denied.

This issue has been resolved.

CSCsu62968—DS3 Port changes to IS from AINS state after soak expiry without valid input signal

DS3 ports of DS1-28/DS3-EC1-3 and DS1-84/DS3-EC1-3 cards changes from AINS to IS state after an AINS soak time expiry without valid input signal. The workaround is to manually edit the DS1 port state after rebooting, or change the state to any other state except OOS_DSBLD and then revert the state to OOS_DSBLD. This issue has been resolved.

CSCsx36536—NIU loop-back not applied in response to network loop-back

The NIU loop-back is not applied in response to the network loop-back codes in ESF framing format. This issue has been resolved.

CSCse69591—Delay in provisioning other equipment on the WBE card

Any equipment provisioning on the Wideband Electrical (WBE) card takes a longer time. For example, creating a protection group through TL1 on the WBE card takes approximately 30 seconds. This issue has been resolved.

CSCta72915—Loopback type is not updated for terminal loopback

When facility loopback is initiated by loopcodes, the Loopback Type files in the Card view > Maintenance > DS1 > Loopback pane shows "None". This issue has been resolved.

CSCsr50984—The REM (remote) LED does not glow

The REM-LED (Remote LED) on a node does not update the correct status of the alarms in the network until the alarms raise or clear on that particular node. This issue has been resolved.

CSCsy32884—Traffic Drop on STS Circuits

Traffic drops on STS circuits on DS-1 ports of a DS1-28-DS3-EC1-3 or DS1-84-DS3-EC1-3 card during a side switch or during an upgrade when the DS-1 port is set to OOS-DSBLD state. This issue has been resolved.

CSCsz67103—Errors in the 64 Kbit/sec F1 data channel

Under normal data traffic condition, there are errors in the 64 Kbit/sec F1 data channel. This issue has been resolved.

CSCta56459—NE defaults for FeInhibitLpbk are not supported

The following NE defaults are not supported:

DS1-28-DS3-EC1-3.DS1-PORT.config.FeInhibitLpbk

DS1-84-DS3-EC1-3.DS1-PORT.config.FeInhibitLpbk

CTX.DS1-PORT.config.FeInhibitLpbk

This issue has been resolved.

CSCta10505—Far end VT IPPM counters do not increment

Far end VT IPPM counters do not increment when the RDI-V errors are injected under the following conditions:

1. Create a VT circuit between the optical ports the CTXMA card.

2. Enable VT IPPM for the VTs involved in the circuit.

3. Inject the RDI-V errors.

This issue has been resolved.

New Features and Functionality

This section documents new software features in Cisco ONS 15310-MA Software Release 8.5.4.

Network Interface Unit Loopback

The network interface unit (NIU) loopback test, performed on the electrical I/O cards, is used to test connectivity from the source, across the SONET/SDH cloud to the destination. NIU loopback test is performed on the node destination port in the circuit. Completing a successful NIU loopback to a destination-node port verifies that the circuit is good up to the destination port.


Note NIU loopback is applicable for ESF frame format only.



Caution Performing a loopback on an in-service circuit is service-affecting.

Link Integrity Soak Timer

All the mapper cards (CE-100T-8 and CE-MR-6 cards on Cisco ONS 15310-MA platform) support end-to-end Ethernet link integrity. If any part of the end-to-end path fails, the mapper card soaks the defect for a fixed duration of 200 ms. In certain network configurations, the restoration time after a protection switch can be more than 200 ms. Such disruptions necessitates that the link integrity be initiated at an interval greater than 200 ms.

The Link Integrity Soak Timer enhancement allows you to configure link integrity soak timer on per port basis. To allow link integrity to be initiated at an interval greater than 200 ms, set the link integrity timer in the range between 200 and 10000 ms, in multiples of 100 ms.
