AUDIT FAILS FOR MULTILINE HEADER CONFIGURATION ON HUAWEI DEVICES (Doc ID 736832.1)

Last updated on AUGUST 13, 2013

Applies to:

Oracle Communications IP Service Activator - Version: 5.2.3 to 5.2.3
This problem can occur on any platform.

Symptoms

To use the "header" command on a Huawei device you must specify a start delimiter at the beginning of the string and use the same delimiter at the end of the string.

In the following two examples, the delimiters are 'z' and the '%' characters.

1 - Example with 'z'
header login zThis is my login messagesz

      and on the device it looks like:

header login %This is my login message%


2 - Example with '%'
header login %This is my login message%

 and on the device it looks like:

header login %This is my login message%

This works in a single line situation but if the user does a multi-line header it would look like.

header login zThis is a multiline login message with a second line of textz

and on the device it looks like;

header login %zThis is a multiline login message with a second line of textz%

The problem seems to be that the router doesn't properly convert the starting delimiter to just a "%" character but leaves on the starting delimiter along with the "%" character. This causes the NP audit to fail.

Changes

This is specific to the Huawei VRP 3.0 IOS.
