Alarms

This section documents caveats for Alarms in Release 8.5.4.

CSCsv30593—AIS-V alarm does not clear

The AIS-V alarm does not clear on VT1.5 cross connect circuits under the following conditions:

1. Create a VT1.5 path protected circuit.

2. Raise an SF-P alarm by injecting path errors.

3. AIS-V alarm is raised on the VT1.5 circuit.

4. Change the circuit state from IS to OOS-MT or OOS-DSBLD.

5. Change the circuit state back to IS.

6. Clear the SF-P alarm, the AIS-V alarm does not clear.

The workaround is to soft reset the cross connect card. This issue will be resolved in a future release.

CSCsv30867—The alarms do not clear after cross-connect side switch

When any VT level alarms are raised, a cross-connect side switch is performed to eliminate the alarm. The alarms do not clear after cross-connect side switch. The workaround is to reset the cross-connect card to clear the alarm. This issue will be resolved in a future release.

CSCsw98487—PROV-MISMATCH alarm is not raised when client port is in Unlocked state

The PROV-MISMATCH alarm is not raised and cleared when the client port provisioned with DVB-ASI or ISC-1 in the TXP_MR_2.5G card when the card is in Unlocked state. This issue will be resolved in a future release.

CTC

This section documents caveats for CTC in Release 8.5.4.

CSCsv14375—Shared secret key corrupt after upgrade

Longer than 16 character shared secret key gets corrupted after an upgrade from 7.20 to 8.54. To avoid this, use radius server key less than 16 character length before upgrade or:

On the node with EnableNodeAsFinalAuthenticator attribute enabled, do the following as workaround:

1. Launch CTC.

2. Delete the corrupted secret key record in CTC (node view->Provisioning->Security->RADIUS Server).

3. Recreate it with an appropriate key.

This issue will be resolved in a future release.

CSCsy14945—CTC cannot manage either nodes of the same version of higher maintenance version, than its core version

CTC cannot manage either nodes of the same version of higher maintenance version, than its core version. Specifically the nodes are not accessible by CTC. The workaround is to upgrade the CTC core version or manually clean the CTC jar cache and then ensure no nodes of the specified version above are encountered. 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.

CSCsx75218—VC12 VCAT circuit members may not come-up and report LOP alarm

Create a VC4-2c, VC4-3c, VC4-4c, VC4-8c, VC4-16c, or any of the CCAT circuit and the delete the CCAT circuit. Create VC12 VCAT circuit using the same VC4 members as previously deleted CCAT circuits. Some VC12 VCAT circuit members may not come-up and report LOP alarm. The workaround is to hard-reset CEMR-10 or MLMR-10 cards. This issue will be resolved in a future release.

CSCsy16814—Traffic drop is observed when port state change from OOS-DSBLD to IS

Traffic drop is observed when port state change from Locked,disabled to Unlocked. The workaround is to perform Unlocked > Locked > Unlocked transition until problem is fixed. This issue will be resolved in a future release.

DWDM

This section documents caveats for DWDM in Release 8.5.4.

CSCsu81842—Circuit not created through add and drop node with by-pass patchcords

The OCHNC circuit is not created through channel add and drop node with bypass patchcords. When the traffic matrix of the network requires BYPASS connection between AD-XC cards, the APC domain is not properly discovered. The workaround is to remove the bypass patchcords in the node and create two separated OCH-NC circuits. This issue will be resolved in a future release.

CSCsv01621—Unable to open the card configuration panel

The user cannot open the card configuration panel for any WXC card inserted or pre-provisioned in the system. The workaround is to physically remove the deleted WXC cards from their slots. This issue will be resolved in a future release.

CSCsx17868—The MXP-MR-10DME card continuously reboots after FPGA upgrade

The MXP-MR-10DME card continuously reboots after FPGA upgrade. Forcing an FPGA upgrade on an MXP-MR-10DME results in a status where the card reboots continuously. The workaround is to reset the card. This issue will be resolved in a future release.

CSCsz38549—VOA FAIL alarm is raised when channels are added

Channels added trough the 40-WSS raise VOA FAIL alarm on the port CHAN-RX of the 40-WXC in multidegre node setup with VOA set to -12dBm. This issue will be resolved in a future release.

CSCsz94689—Incoming traffic received through any port on the affected card may flow to other Service Provider VLANs

Incoming traffic received through any port on the affected card may flow to other Service Provider VLANs (SVLAN) if the Customer VLAN (CVLAN) ID on the incoming packet belongs to any VLAN range configured on the card. This issue may occur even if the packet is received via a Network to Network Interface (NNI) port. This issue will be resolved in a future release.

CSCta49163—Unsupported Y-cable allowed through TL1

TL1 allows Y-cable protection to be configured between the cards that are already in another Y-cable group and on the third card that is not part of the original Y-cable group. The CTC does not allow this operation, but TL1 lets it through. This issue will be resolved in a future release.

CSCtb16483—PPC created through TL1 is not discovered properly in the CTC

The provisionable patchcords (PPC) created using TL1 between nodes in secure mode and normal mode are not discovered in CTC. The workaround is to use CTC to create PPC. This issue will be resolved in a future release.

CSCtb33916 —After an upgrade, traffic is discarded on a newly created VLAN

The traffic does not flow in a newly created VLAN under the following conditions:

Software upgraded from R8.5 to R9.0 or R9.0.1

After a soft reset of the card.

This issue will be resolved in a future release.

Optical I/O Cards

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

CSCsu80809—Data rate can be changed when there are active circuits and DCC connections

The data rate on an ONS 15454 or an ONS 15310 node that uses ONS-SE-Z1 pluggables can be changed while there are active circuits and DCC connections. This issue will be resolved in a future release.

Path Protection

This section documents caveats for Path Protection in Release 8.5.4.

CSCta44268—In ADM10G, for path protected circuits on STSs greater than 3, traffic hit of around 2000 ms is observed

In ADM10G, for path protected circuits on STSs greater than 3, traffic hit of around 2000 ms is observed, when the card reboots with traffic switched to protect due to defects on working. The conditions are:

1. Create path protected circuit on STS > 3 on optical ports of ADM-10G card.

2. Inject defect on working such that traffic switches to protect.

3. Reboot the ADM-10G card. A traffic hit of around 2000 ms is observed during reboot of card.

This issue will be resolved in a future release.

Performance Monitoring

This section documents caveats for Performance Monitoring in Release 8.5.4.

CSCta27911—MS-UAS is reported in ONS 15454-SDH node

CSCsm85843—CTC displays the STS circuit in ROLL_PENDING state when 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. The workaround is to complete all the steps of the ROLL process including the FINISH step. This issue has been resolved.

CSCsq73116—PPC is not working on secure mode node

When a PPC terminating on a secure mode node is created, a new "unknown" node appears and the PPC is not shown on the network map. This issue has been resolved.

New Features and Functionality

This section documents new software features in Cisco ONS 15454 Software Release 8.5.4.

Link Integrity Soak Timer

All the mapper cards (G1000-4, CE-1000-4, CE-100-8, and CE-MR-10 cards supported on Cisco ONS 15454 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 ms and 10000 ms, in multiples of 100 ms.

The Link Integrity Disable enhancement allows you to disable Link Integrity Soak Timer functionality on a per port basis.


Note When the link integrity timer value on CE-1000-4 card with VCAT circuit is more than 1400 ms, the transition from IS > OOS > IS causes a delay of 1100 ms.


TL1 Gateway and ENE Sessions

The Cisco ONS 15454 Software Release 8.5.4 increases the maximum number of ENE sessions over a OSI DCC from 20 to 176. If you use a combination of IP ENE and OSI ENE sessions, it is important to remember that the maximum number of ENEs supported per GNE is equal to the maximum number of IP ENEs.
