Description (partial)


Hardware: Sun servers
OS:  Solaris 10.
Image:   Bac3.5

Brief Description:

1: DPE should allow to provision an ethernet interface (for eg. ce1, ce2) only if the interface is UP and RUNNING state.

Cmd to check interface status is "ifconfig -a" on solaris server
CMd to provision an eth interface using DPE CLI is "interface ethernet ce1 provisioning enabled true"

2: PROBLEM:- DPE CLI allows to provision an ethernet interface (for eg: ce1, ce2) even if the interface is UP and NOT in RUNNING state.

3:  IF the interface (for eg:ce1, ce2) is NOT UP and NOT RUNNING state, then DPE CLI throws the foll error saying that interface can be provisioned only if it is UP and RUNNING.

# interface ethernet ce1 provisioning enabled true
% interface can only be configured provisioning enabled if it is up and running.
% Error processing command


Check if the if the interface is UP and RUNNING before you provision them using the DPE CLI to handle cwmp requests.


If DPE is running on Solaris OS, then the interfaces should be UP and RUNNING state before the interface is configured to be provisioning enabled. If that is not the case, then the interface wont be handling the CWMP requests eventhough the DPE CLI will allow to provision the interface.
