CDRouter 12.21 Release Notes

release-note version 12.21

CDRouter 12.21 November 18, 2021


New Features

  • NTA1000: All NTA1000v7 systems are now eligible for an operating system upgrade from CentOS 8 to Rocky Linux 8. Please see our Rocky Linux migration guide for more information.

Change Log

  • CDRouter: CDRouter’s wireless LAN clients are now able to connect to hidden SSIDs. To test with hidden SSIDs, simply enable this feature within the DUT. No additional configuration is required within CDRouter. [sc12730]

  • Performance: Resolved a regression in CDRouter’s IPv4 performance tests that was introduced in CDRouter 12.20. This regression only impacts configurations where the testvar perfWanMac is set to the new default value of auto.

    We recommend that all customers running performance tests set the testvar perfWanMac to a fixed value to avoid potential MAC address conflicts:

      testvar perfWanMac b0:75:0c:dd:83:eb
    

    Additional changes related to MAC address assignments will be made in future releases. This work is needed to enable exciting new features that will be available in 2022. [sc14178]

  • Security: The ET Open ruleset shipped with the CDRouter Security add-on has been updated to version 9871. [sc14109]

  • TR-069: Resolved an issue with the performance web server used in the tr143_http test module that would prevent IPv6 tests in this module from starting up properly if they were run after any IPv4 tests in this module. [sc13399]

  • TR-069: The Device.IP.Diagnostics.IPPing.ProtocolVersion parameter is now explicitly set to a value of IPv4 or IPv6 as needed in the tr69_diagnostics test module. Previously, this parameter was not set, which could lead to unexpected behavior. [sc13849]

  • TR-069: Added warning messages to the tr69_diagnostics test module if the DUT does not support the Device.IP.Diagnostics.IPPing.ProtocolVersion parameter. [sc13851]

  • TR-069: The SetParameterValues variants of the profile verification tests (tests that end in _spv_5) have been removed for all profiles that do not have any writable parameters. This equates to the removal of 89 TR-069 profile tests in this release. [sc14264]

  • TR-069: The SetParameterValues variants of the profile verification tests (tests that end in _spv_5) will now fail if the DUT does not return any writable parameters in the initial GetParameterValues RPC issued by the ACS. [sc14264]

  • USP: Removed unnecessary pause commands from the usp_22 and usp_23 test cases and fixed a false pass scenario when uspNotificationParamManualChange is set to yes. The default value of this testvar has also been changed to no. [sc13474]

  • USP: The USP profile verification tests will now fail if the EUT responds to any Get message with a GetResponse containing an inner error. [sc13796]

  • USP: Updated the WebSocket tests in the usp_conformance test module to better support all possible controller and agent client/server configurations. [sc13689]

  • USP: The Set variants of the profile verification tests (tests that end in _set_2) will now fail if the DUT does not return any writable parameters in the initial Get. [sc14264]

  • USP: The DTLS certificates used by the USP controller when acting as the CoAP client now respect the uspControllerMTPCertPath testvar. [sc13846]

  • USP: The MQTT subscribe-topic property has been implemented. This property is required in certain USP conformance test cases, such as usp_conformance_9_9. [sc14123]

  • USP: Resolved a potential fatal error in CoAPS sessions that are not successfully established. [sc14159]

  • USP: The SetParameterValues variants of the profile verification tests (tests that end in _spv_5) have been removed for all profiles that do not have any writable parameters. This equates to the removal of 61 USP profile tests in this release. [sc14264]

  • USP: Updated the usp_conformance_7_8 test case to allow the DUT to reconnect gracefully at the end of the procedure. [sc14405]

Notices

  • NTA1000 rail kits now available: We now have sliding rack rail kits for NTA1000v6 and NTA1000v7 systems! Please contact support@qacafe.com for more information.

  • Important installation notes: If you are upgrading from CDRouter 11.x or earlier versions, all prerequisites listed in the CDRouter 12.0 Release Notes must be met prior to upgrading to CDRouter 12.21. Please contact support@qacafe.com for assistance if needed.

  • Config upgrades: CDRouter 12.21 includes many new features and configuration testvars. Config files may be easily upgraded to include all new CDRouter 12.21 testvars using the config upgrade utility.
