  • Usage of Java Applications on an optiPoint display module is not supported. Java Applications running on the optiPoint display module have impact to memory management in the phone and can force phone reboots because of low memory or memory fragmentation.
  • The option in DLS to force an update also on phones which are not idle shall not be executed. This is causing problems in database of the HiPath 8000.
  • Feature IEEE 802.1x was not tested in field trials, because there was no customer available. 802.1x was tested only in systemtest; but 802.1x was allready released in HFA (V5.1.30).
  • In case of a memory leak or excessive memory fragmentation the phone is forced to reboot when a minimum limit has been reached. Reboot may also happen at 01:10 AM when idle if it is seen that the maximum block size available in the memory is below a preset limit.

Depending on the phone usage such a reboot can happen after several month (single line) or about 15 – 30 days (often used phone with 10 lines).
