Opened: Oct 13, 2017
Severity: 3-Major

Symptoms

OPT-0043 is a Bi-Directional optical transceiver made up of 2 20G channels. It must not be allowed to unbundle into 4x10G channels.

Impact

Unbunding of OPT-0043 will be rejected. The OPT-0043 can only be used as a 40G interface, not as 4x10G. tmsh error when bundling requested: The requested bundle state of disabled for interface X.0 is invalid. Unbundling not allowed for this optic. When OPT-0043 is inserted into interface X already configured as unbundled into 4x10G the interface will display as "disable". The following messages will be in /var/log/ltm err bcm56xxd[21440]: 012c0010:3: Unbundled interfaces found. Bundle state 'disabled' for optic OPT-0043 is invalid. err bcm56xxd[21440]: 012c0024:3: Invalid Bundle Config for optic OPT-0043 err bcm56xxd[21440]: 012c0010:3: Unsupported module in use on interface X.1 info bcm56xxd[21440]: 012c0015:6: Link: X.1 is DISABLED err bcm56xxd[21440]: 012c0010:3: Unsupported module in use on interface X.2 info bcm56xxd[21440]: 012c0015:6: Link: X.2 is DISABLED err bcm56xxd[21440]: 012c0010:3: Unsupported module in use on interface X.3 info bcm56xxd[21440]: 012c0015:6: Link: X.3 is DISABLED err bcm56xxd[21440]: 012c0010:3: Unsupported module in use on interface X.4 info bcm56xxd[21440]: 012c0015:6: Link: X.4 is DISABLED

Conditions

OPT-0043 transceiver inserted into a 40G interface

Workaround

Do not unbundle OPT-0043 - that is an unsupported configuration.

Fix Information

Unbunding of OPT-0043 will be rejected.
