Cartridge Does Not Recognize Cisco Experimental IOS releases (Doc ID 553969.1)

Last updated on FEBRUARY 27, 2019

Applies to:

Oracle Communications IP Service Activator - Version 5.2.1 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.


When users try to apply configuration on a device with an experimental IOS release, the Network Processor rejects the configuration with an error similar to the following:

An empty sequence is not allowed as the third argument of s2dmqcphbpolicymap:getPoliceControlAction()

The example here was generated by attempting to configure a QoS policy, however this will apply to any type of configuration, so the error you see will be similar even if not identical.

Here is an example of an IOS description string that would cause such a problem:

"Cisco IOS Software, C870 Software (C870-ADVIPSERVICESK9-M), Experimental Version 12.4(20080109:064842) [<HOST> 108"


A device is upgraded to an experimental IOS release.
