When an OptiX PTN 950 NE is configured with two system control boards (active and standby), the license modules on the system control boards accumulate the board debugging information. The accumulated debugging information exhausts the space of the flash memory, leading to a failure to save the configuration data and back up the NE database.
Product Line:Carrier IP product line Product Family:PTN
Product Model:OptiX PTN 950
The OptiX PTN 950 NE uses two system control boards which run the V100R002C01SPC100 NE software.
The standby system control board exhausts the flash memory space at a speed two times faster than the active system control board. Therefore, the fault first occurs on the standby system control board.
The license module of the system control board software has a defect in data processing. Due to this defect, the debugging information about the active and standby system control boards continuously accumulates, exhausting the space of the flash memory. The debugging information occupies 1 MB flash space every 20 days for the active system control board but every 10 days for the standby system control board. (The debugging information has no impact on the device functions and applications.)
[Impact and Risk]
The active and standby system control boards run out of the flash space.

Use the SmartKit Inspector to periodically perform preventive maintenance inspections (PMIs) of NEs of the specified version (V100R002C01SPC100).You are advised to perform the PMI every three months.
On the live network the version of the SmartKit Inspector is V100R006C00. Before performing a PMI, use the automatic upgrade function to upgrade the tool to the CN-PTN Box=P004 patch version, the later version Inspector also has the similar item.
After installing the CN-PTN Box=P004 patch, load the R6FP005BP004_PreUpgrading_checking_Template.xml file to the SmartKit Inspector to perform the PMI.
Install the V100R002C01SPH102 patch or upgrade the NE to a later version.
