No ACS EDR Files Created When the "CdrCurrentDirectory" Configuration Parameter's Path String is Wrapped in Quotation Marks

(Doc ID 1564901.1)

Last updated on OCTOBER 18, 2016

Applies to:

Oracle Communications Network Charging and Control - Version 2.2.0 to 5.0.2 [Release 2.2 to 5.0]
Oracle Solaris on SPARC (64-bit)


In all versions of NCC (Network Charging and Control), the ACS (Advanced Control Services) Technical Guide indicates that the CdrCurrentDirectory parameter, configured in the acs.conf file, can handle quotation marks.

Syntax:CdrCurrentDirectory "path"
Description: The path to write the EDR file to.
Type: String
Optionality: Optional (default used if not set).
Default: /IN/service_packages/SMS/cdr/current
Warning: This parameter only changes the output of the EDR file. If this parameter is changed all other relevant parts of the platform must also be updated.
Example: CdrCurrentDirectory "/var/EDRs/current"

This is not the case and upon attempting to use a quoted path name, every time slee_acs tries to open a new EDR (Event Data Record) file, the following error is written to its log file:

Jun 10 23:48:38.411846 slee_acs(19283) ERROR: Open Failed No such file or directory: "/IN/service_packages/SMS/cdr/current" (674 bytes lost)

With no output file to write to, all ACS EDRs are lost.


CdrCurrentDirectory parameter changed/added with a quoted path string.
