Problem with Improved Network System Usability. Disconnected Connections Cannot be Added to Treeview or Drawing. (Doc ID 3005944.1)

Last updated on FEBRUARY 21, 2024

Applies to:

Oracle Communications MetaSolv Solution - Version 6.3.1 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

Problem with Improved Network System Usability enhancement delivered in Patch 35633140 (6.3.1.788). Disconnected Connections cannot be added to the treeview or drawing. The application appears to do nothing when attempting to add a Disconnected Connection. However, attempting to add a Disconnected Connection immediately after an Active Connection has been added, results in a pop-up message received in the Viewing Extensions window (w_netdes_neighbor) and indicates a customer connection already exists in the treeview (see below). In our current version, 6.3.1.705.2, we are able to add both Active and Disconnected connections to the treeview or drawing.

Pop-up Message

The customer connection (extension) already exists in the treeview.

3. Search for a Network System having Customer Connection.
