Known Affected Versions:
12.1.0, 12.1.0 HF1, 12.1.0 HF2, 12.1.1, 12.1.1 HF1, 12.1.1 HF2, 12.1.2

Fixed In:

Opened: Nov 10, 2016
Severity: 3-Major


The f5optics functionality is not initialized on Herculon iSeries variants.


None. No f5optics optics module database is presently provided for Herculon platforms. Herculon uses no optics modules that require tuning (e.g., 100G).


This occurs on the following Herculon iSeries platforms: HRC-i2800, HRC-i5800, HRC-i10800.



Fix Information

With the fix, if an optics module data base is provided via an f5optics install, f5optics will become operational on Herculon. An f5optics database will be provided if optics modules requiring tuning are ever used with Herculon.
