Known Issues and Recommendations

This section provides the latest information on known issues and recommendations associated with this product.


The Network T-Server for NGSN does not support call-cleanup functionality. (ER# 248827574)

Found In: 7.6.000.07 Fixed In: 

The list of configuration options in the log file for Network T-Servers that utilize Programmable Gateway Framework appears twice. The first list is incomplete and may contain the wrong default values for some options. A complete list of options and default values appears in the second list.

Found In: 7.6.000.05 Fixed In: 

In release 7.6, the Commonlib option common\rebind-delay affects the operation of Network T-Servers that use the gli-reconnect-delay option to control server socket. The common\rebind-delay option overrides the gli-reconnect-delay option and ignores settings for this option.

Genesys recommends the following:

Note: Disabling this option may cause problems in cases of multiport usage. Network T-Server will exit if at least one port has not been opened (due to misconfiguration, or a quick restart).

Found In: 7.6.000.05 Fixed In: 

A protocol violation will occur if the Network T-Server for NGSN sends any message to the SCP immediately after receiving SCP confirmation of a successful conference completion. Any subsequent message received from the SCP will recover the issue, and will correct further communications for the transaction. (ER# 172492453)

Found In: 7.6.000.05 Fixed In: 

Call variables provided by the routing strategy in extension data must be of the value type string. If the value type integer is used, Network T-Server for NGSN will fail to encode the response to the SCP. (ER# 32430043)

Found In: 7.2.003.00 Fixed In: 

The Network T-Server for NGSN does not enforce size limitations of call variable data. The routing strategy must ensure the call variable data is set to a minimum of one (1) byte in length, but not more than 40 bytes. (ER# 32723363)

Found In: 7.2.003.00 Fixed In: 

The Network T-Server for NGSN does not enforce size restrictions on the destination label provided by the routing strategy.

Found In: 7.2.003.00 Fixed In: 

Running the Network T-Server for NGSN on the AIX operating system requires the IBM VisualAge C++ Version 6.0 runtime libraries. Instructions for obtaining and installing the runtime libraries can be found on the web at http://www-1.ibm.com/support/all_download_drivers.html.

Found In: 7.0.000.02 Fixed In: 

Network T-Servers do not support warm or hot standby.  Instead, they use a load sharing redundancy schema. See the Framework 8.1 Network T-Server Deployment Guide for your T-Server for more information.

Found In: 7.0.000.02 Fixed In:
