Additional APAR Information
APAR Description
IZ55835
9.1.2 LOADER OVERWRITES DATA IF THE SAME ELEMENT HAS 2 OR MORE BLOCK
SET

ERROR DESCRIPTION:

Normally a LIF block instance contains all the available information for a specific timestamp.
However, there is a scenario where the Gateway can generate a LIF file with multiple instances of the same block for the same timestamp.
Instance 1 of the block could contain half the counters and instance 2 the other half.
Block Instance 1 is loaded and the database values are set for the counters in the block.
Block Instance 2 is loaded and the database values are set for the counters in the block, but the
database values for the counters in block instance 1 are overwritten and set to null.

The following shows a scenario where this happens. Within one LIF file, there are two separate
instances of the same blockname, for the same time period and network element ID.

LOCAL FIX:
http://www-01.ibm.com/support/docview.wss?rs=3256&uid=swg21405486

PROBLEM SUMMARY:
Fixed in 9.2 General Availability
IZ64724
MULTIPLE LOADER EXIST AFTER VNLM BEING INSTALLED ON TOP OF VS TP

ERROR DESCRIPTION:
Duplicate valnt00090371

Multiple loader exist when the VNLM has been merged into the VS
TP datasource. It is quite confusing which loader can be used to
control the both VNLM and VS loadmap

Expected result:
Only 1 loader should be always used to control the multiple
ruleset under same datasource

LOCAL FIX:
Customer can still use the newly merged loader, however is still
confusing as the older loader still remains but unusable.

valnt00088812 Nokia UTRAN RU10 Build01 :- Summary values are populated wrongly for min and max aggregator in pcalc

Fixed in 9.2

Error Description:
For example, current core calculation of the MAX value of pcalc {kpiA} / {kpiB} is
MAX{kpiA} / MAX {kpiB}
However, what we expect and what seems logical is
MAX( {kpiA} / {kpiB} )
The same goes for the other aggregators.

Resolution:
This a limitation in Entity Aggregation that was fixed in Entity Aggregation Phase 2 (9.2).
valnt00089239 Nokia Utran RU10 Build1 :- KPIs returning different values in rollup reports

Fixed in 9.2

Error Description:
for the following roll up report where

Parent Entity - Network
Child Entity - Cell
Report name - Network_cell
Counter Block for the KPI

cpich_ecno_det_sum - PMMOResult_AutoDef_SHO_DSR
KPI GroupName for the KPI cpich_ecno_det_sum - soft_handovers_dsr
Expected Value of the KPI cpich_ecno_det_sum - 224639.0 for the tstamp 20/04/2009 09:00
Value returned in the report output cpich_ecno_det_sum - 336960.0 for the tstamp 20/04/2009 09:00

Defined a report with parent entity "Netowrk" and child entity "Cell" having KPI "cpich_ecno_det_sum" alone. Ran the report.

Value returned in the report output was - 224639.0 for the tstamp 20/04/2009 09:00

The same issue exists for Region_cell and RNC_Cell.

Resolution:
The problem appears because the report is using both tables with secondary keys and tables without secondary keys.
valnt00084715 GSMGPRS Siemens BSS BR10:- Provisioning of Busy hour failed for BR10 TP
(Duplicate of valnt00076484 -Fixed in 9.1.2 IF16)

Error Description:
Provisioning of Siemens BSS BR10 VS TP getting failed with the following error message in the consloe output.

Failed to create busy hour view for entity Cell.

In the as-busyhour.log we got the following error messages.
23:01:59,602 ERROR [persist.SBHDefinitionDDL] (RMI TCP Connection(2571)-9.127.97.239) java.sql.SQLException: ORA-01792: maximum number of columns in a table or view is 1000

23:11:32,618 ERROR [persist.SBHEntityTableManager] (RMI TCP Connection(2571)-9.127.97.239) java.sql.SQLException: ORA-00907: missing right parenthesis

Resolution:
1) Provision a number of BH definitions using Pegs, Pcalc and UDCs
2) Run commands
> desc cell_dbh
> desc cell_dbh_v
3)Verify that column numbers in both the tables are same (except for measurement seconds and entity_id). Difference of 2 is correct.
valnt00084468 Ericsson_UTRAN_P7 Build1 : Log information are displayed in the console while executing custom summaries

Fixed in 9.1.2 IF16

Error Description:
The Log Information are displayed in the console while executing Custom Summaries. But the ususal information are logged in summariser-server.log

Local Fix:
N/A

Additional APAR Information
APAR / Internal Defect Reference Description
valnt00092676
Data Type mismatch between summary table and traffic table

Error Description:
This discrepancy happens due to the same ID field which defined in other NC table having the different length.
It occurs after 2 TP's are installed and summaries created that each have column with the same column_id.

eg: INTERFACE_ID in the nc_ip_interface was defined as length(50) but the interface_id in nc_ethernet_link(child) was defined as length(100) or length(255).. then the Primary ID created in the Summary table will have the highest length in the DICT (user_tab_columns).
Local Fix:
N/A
