 NOTES
 1)In the tbs_util application, under the "Connection Allocation" building block, if for example, for the "Assignable Bandwidth Link" and "Internet Connection" combination, the "VPI/VCI" CA is configured as "Allow Duplicates", then at the time of manual SCHEMATIC design, MSS will accept the duplicate VPI/VCI values.

2)Changing the value from €œ'Allow Duplicates'€ to '€No Duplicates' for Connection€ is permissible only if there are no duplicates for VPI/VCI combinations in the database for the corresponding building block.

3)While changing the setting, the application may experience a period of hanging.  This is because MSS tries to generate a report as to which circuits are found to have duplicate VPI/VCI.

4)The assigned values of VPI/ VCI which are 'live' (current & pending issue) cannot be assigned to other circuits .
 FAQs on What can be considered as duplicate VPI/VCI values:
 

1.  Issue 2 of the schematic design happens to use the VPI/VCI  value of the issue 1 on the same circuit. Is this considered duplicate VPI/VCI value?

Ans: Not considered to be duplicate as the circuit is still the same irrespective of the issue.

2. One circuit is disconnected and the other is in service but having the same VPI/VCI  value.  Is this considered duplicate VPI/VCI value?

Ans: Not considered to be duplicate as the values associated with disconnected circuit are redundant.

3. Change orders for the same circuit use the same VPI/VCI  values.  Is this considered a duplicate VPI/VCI value?

Ans: Not considered to be duplicate as the circuit is still the same irrespective of the issue and order.
