press "Apply" in the "Create SLA" dialog). If the settings for the queue are retrieved again the retrieved values show the correct settings. To use Thereshold Crossing Alerts (TCAs) it is necessary not only to activate the TCA first but also to activate the corresponding record (means history counter). the SLA is not shown in the dialog in order to update the list. 828 (2233) Operational Workaround -- If in the window “Ethernet connections” an unused Ignore the properties for interface is selected. the properties are sometimes unused interfaces.

It is not possible to configure a 100Base-TX SFP on the Fast Ethernet Ports.2. For electical Fast-Ethernet ports the loop does only work if autonegotiation is administartive disabled. -The Network (Port) Loop for electrical FastEthernet and Gigabit-Ethernet does not work correct. It is not possible to create a SDH cross connection between an ETO and ELS-1000S if the ETO is used as "Source card". When creating the cross connection with an ETO as 'source' card then the request will be rejected with the error message 'incompatible card types' Operational Workaround None. 4. Use the ELS-1000S as "Source card".
