Description (partial)


Customer is trying  to deploy CoA and hotlining in  BWG based on 7600+SAMI Interface per following document:

Scenario is as the following:

                a. MS preformed network entry to the network  
                b. Both authentication and authorization are successful
                c. in the middle of the session  the cisco-AR  send  CoA  to the BWG in order to hotline the subscriber session.
                d. the BWG recieve the CoA and the subscriber move to   hotlining profile.
                e. hotlining works fine.

According to the steps given below we do fine until the step  6.
Problem starts at step 7 where  BWG sends an Accounting start to AAA with Hotlining Indication for each flow and host.

This accounting start is malformed.
Accounting start comtains attribute AAA-session-id which length is wrongly coded.


This appears to happen only when hotlining feature is used.
