Cisco EPOM Release Notes for Release 5.0


New Features

Extensible Provisioning and Operations Manager (EPOM) supports all nouns new to the Cisco BTS 102000 Softswitch in release 5.0; this allows users to provision tables corresponding to each noun in the BTS.

All new nouns appear in EPOM's navigation tree:

with their associated verbs

under their parent node—for example, "isdn_dchan_profile" appears under its parent node "ISDN"

EPOM supports the one verb new to release 5.0.

Nouns/Verb

aggr_profile

client_session

command_throttle_threshold

config_interval

domain2route

ems_session_control_policy

enum_profile

fimxml noun, results in new install verb

Note This does not support the show command. When a user clicks it in EPOM's navigation tree, the default page does not appear. Instead, a special install page appears.

EPOM allows you to export all data for a release, aiding in data backup in case of disaster recovery. To backup existing BTS data, save it using the export command, revert by putting it into the export file in the EMS deposit directory.

Issues and Limits

Cisco has identified the following issues:

bts_export does not include users password for user_auth noun, just HA1 paramenters. The password field should not come in bts_export exported cli file. Save passwords in a text file, then manually append ";password=saved_password" to each user_auth cli generated by bts_export.

An error occurs if you send the update as "--UNSET--" with mandatory attributes. From the EPOM side, the behavior is the same as previous releases.

The number of simultaneous EPOM sessions is limited by hardware and software (CORBA). These sessions are consistent with the maximum simultaneous CORBA sessions supported by the BTS EMS.

Cisco has identified the following limits:

There are delays accessing JSP pages for the first time as the Tomcat Webserver compiles them.

There are delays accessing the BTS-10200 EMS server for the first time as the EMS server's command table is queried to determine supported commands.

There are delays creating online CORBA cache pools for BTS inventories when EPOM restarts.
