(Doc ID 875964.1)

Last updated on NOVEMBER 06, 2012

Applies to:

Oracle Communications Network Integrity - Version: 3.6.0 to 3.6.0
This problem can occur on any platform.

Symptoms

Special characters are sometimes used in the Equipment/Circuit name field for discovered
equipment. Oracle Communications Network Integrity is used to reconcile the data, but when the
special character is encountered, Integrity produces an exception, and does not correctly perform
the reconciliation.
