ERS 5900 v7.0 software bugs
« on: July 21, 2015, 06:35:51 PM »
Just got a new pair of ERS 5952 switches and immediately found a software bug where "show interfaces" in ACLI would show some with an error "% ifIndex instance not found".  EDM also reflects the same ports unavailable (greyed-out).

Any other known bugs in ERS 5900 7.0 code?

I think by running the brand new switches on brand new initial release code you volunteered to beta test for the rest of us.   ;D

That's what I was afraid of.   >:(  Been there before with Nortel.Avaya (years ago was an early site for ERS 8600 5.0.0.0 code; needed because for new 8634XGRS blade install.  Happened to have a nasty bug where a switch lane would stop routing on that blade.  Of course my core fiber ring happened to be on that blade.   ::)

Someone has to die on the bleeding edge of technology so the rest of us might live.

Hi telecom116,

I took part on the beta test for v7.x and I did not recognized that issue. Maybe an hint - please reset that 5900 to factory defaults.
In my LAB both ERS-5900 are shown correctly in COM3.1.1/3.1.2 - also in ACLI.

Good luck

Experienced the same issues after splitting the stack and resetting each back to factory defaults.  Next swapped the two units (making the non-base the base and vise-versa).  The problem actually moved to two other ports, but also on Unit 2.

According to Avaya there is a wi number issued for the problem (ie, it's a known issue), but from the questions being asked by support, I'm not sure they've found a root cause.

At least Avaya is releasing newer code now for the 5900's.  I didn't see your specific issue addressed, but at least they are releasing patches now.

I had to put the switches into production, so the new code has to be scheduled in with lots of people.
