Removing a Parent Equipment Associated with a Child Equipment Installed from Spare Location Deletes both Parent and Child from MSS inventory (Doc ID 2434925.1)

Last updated on AUGUST 13, 2018

Applies to:

Oracle Communications MetaSolv Solution - Version 6.3.0 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.



In MSS version:  EWO - Equipment Install

Removal of Child Equip installed using EWO from Spare EQ deletes both parent and child EQ

Removing a parent Equipment associated with a Child Equipment installed from Spare location deletes both parent and child EQ in MSS inventory

This goes against ER 25973103 released in Patch 25541947 - MSS_6_3_0_b555:
If the equipment was installed from spare storage, the equipment is removed from the EWO and moved back to spare storage.


Using EWO Remove, to remove equipment originally installed from Spare storage, should move it back to the Spare storage.


The issue can be reproduced with the following steps:

1. Create an EWO order with rack installation using EQ Spec (Order # 5479672) and it should have
    proper mounting positions [Parent Equipment installed from Spec]

2. Create an EWO order for shelf/Card to be installed using equipment in Spare storage in the mounting position of Equipment in (a)
    (Order # 5479674) [Child Equipment installed from Spare and associated with the Parent EQ in (a)]

3. Remove the Parent equipment installed in order # 5479672 which has the spare child EQ installed in (prior) order # 5479674.
4. MSS deletes both the parent and child Equipment in MSS inventory associated with different EWO orders.


The expectation is to maintain the Child Equipment in Spare, it is deleting from MSS inventory.
Inventory loses the deleted spare equipment.
