Configuration Unsupported: The UE does not support the configuration assigned in “Physical Channel Reconfiguration” message. Incompatible simultaneous reconfiguration: This reason refers to the case when the reconfiguration procedure is simultaneous with SRNS relocation and the new configuration is not supported by the UE. (See TS 25.331) Invalid configuration: Due to some IE in the message “Physical Channel Reconfiguration” is invalid for the UE.
