New Features

The following section details new applications introduced in this release.

OmniVista Monitoring and Reporting Status of NaaS 2.0 Devices

Alcatel-Lucent has released Network as a Service (NaaS) 2.0 support on AOS switches running release 8.8R1. The NaaS offering introduces a flexible hybrid model for customers to purchase network infrastructure solutions through subscriptions. OmniVista plays a key role in the NaaS offering.

  • AOS switches obtain a Device License through interaction with an Alcatel-Lucent License Activation Server. The Device License information for the switch is obtained when OmniVista polls the switch via SNMP or the switch is rediscovered.
  • The following Device License information obtained by OmniVista is reported on the new NaaS Device Licenses screen under Network – Discovery.
    • Device License mode of operation (NaaS, CAPEX, or CAPEX Undecided)
    • The licensed features (Management, Upgrade, Essentials, Advanced).
    • The status of the license for each feature (Licensed, Not Licensed, Grace Period, Expired).
  • New NaaS 2.0 traps supported.

Stellar AP 802.1x Client

A Stellar AP device can now be configured to operate as an 802.1x (supplicant) device. When a Stellar AP is connected to an OmniSwitch UNP port on which the AP Mode and 802.1X authentication is enabled, the switch starts to send EAP frames to the AP device. If the AP device does not respond to the EAP frames, the switch will identify the AP as a non-802.1x (non-supplicant) device and will attempt to authenticate the AP with other methods. To ensure that the switch will identify the AP device as a supplicant (802.1X client), 802.1X functionality can now be enabled for the AP Group to which the AP belongs.

  • All AP client traffic (wired/wireless) is VLAN-tagged on uplink to the OmniSwitch.
  • If the AP secure mode is enabled on the switch UNP port (disabled by default), the VLAN tag of the client traffic is trusted after successful AP authentication. See note below.
  • A classification policy on the OmniSwitch can be configured to catch any untagged client traffic.
  • Third-party switches with 802.1X authentication functionality are also supported.

Note: The AP Mode is enabled on an OmniSwitch UNP port by default. However, the AP mode is not secured by default. This means that the VLAN-tagged client traffic is trusted and forwarded on the UNP port even if the AP device fails 802.1x authentication. When the AP mode is secured, VLAN-tagged client traffic is not trusted and forwarded until the AP device passes 802.1x authentication. The AP mode is secured by enabling the “Secure” option for the AP Mode in the OmniVista Access Authentication Profile to which an AP device is assigned.

Application Updates/Enhancements

The following section details updates and enhancements to existing OmniVista Cirrus applications.

  • Option 1 - Subnet Mask.
  • Option 2 - Gateway.
  • Option 6 - Domain Name Servers - Required for FQDN resolution of OmniVista Cirrus connection points.
  • Option 28 - Broadcast Address. This option is only recommended, not required.
  • Option 42 - NTP Server(s) - Required for Certificate validation (start date and duration), and all related encryption functions. This option is not required on devices running AOS 6.7.2 R04 / AOS 8.5R2 / AWOS or higher. It is however, recommended.

ALE Specific Requirements

  • Option 43
    • Sub-Option 1 - Vendor ID. Validate the DHCP response (must be set with the value alenterprise). This sub-option is only required if you specify any of the sub-options listed below, or any devices on your network are running AOS 6.7.2 R03.

The following Sub-Options are only required if you are using a Proxy to connect to the Internet.

    • Sub-Option 129 - Proxy URL. It can be either an IP address or a URL (e.g., "IP-address=", "URL=").
    • Sub-Option 130 - Proxy Port.
    • Sub-Option 131 - Proxy User Name. If the customer proxy access requires authentication, both 131 and 132 can be supplied via these sub-options.
    • Sub-Option 132 - Proxy Password.
    • Sub-Option 133 - Network ID.
  • Option 138 - Remove any existing configuration (required for all ALE Devices).

Static Deployment Requirements

The following switch configuration prerequisites must be met for a Static Network Deployment.

1. Execute the following CLI commands on each switch. The commands can be contained in a CLI Script and pushed to network switches. See the CLI Scripting online help for more information.

ip name-server <dns_ip>
ip domain-lookup
ntp server <ntp_ip>
ntp client enable

2. (If you are using a Proxy), modify the <running directory>/cloudagent.cfg file on each switch as follows:

  • Activation Server URL: Enter the Activation Server FQDN.
  • HTTP Proxy Server: Enter the Proxy IP address.
  • HTTP Proxy Port: Enter the Proxy IP port.
  • HTTP Proxy User Name: Enter the Proxy username.
  • HTTP Proxy Password: Enter the Proxy password.

3. Enable the Cloud Agent on each switch with the following CLI Command:

cloud-agent admin-state enable

Bandwidth Requirements

For basic onboarding of devices and connection to the OmniVista Cirrus Server, a minimum of 10 kbps end-to-end network throughput is required between the device and OmniVista Cirrus.

Advanced Management
To enable statistics data transfer, status queries, configuration commands, and other requests/responses between devices and OmniVista Cirrus, a minimum of 2Mbps without latency end-to-end network throughput is required between the device and OmniVista Cirrus. APs must be running the latest AWOS software version.

Proxy Requirements

If a device is accessing the Internet via an HTTP/HTTPs proxy, the proxy server must be specified in DHCP Option 43, Sub-option 129 (Server) and Sub-Option 130 (Port). The server may be specified in 1 of 2 formats: 1) “URL=http://server.domain”, or 2) “IP-address=”. The port is specified as a number (8080).

Firewall Requirements

The following ports must be configured to allow outbound traffic from your local network:

  • 443 - If you are not using a Proxy to connect to the Internet, your firewall must allow outbound access to this port; if you are using a Proxy, you need to be able to access this port via your local proxy.
  • 80 - Relevant only if you are accessing UPAM Guest/BYOD Captive portal via insecure HTTP.  If you are not using a Proxy to connect to the Internet, your firewall must allow outbound access to this port; if you are using a proxy, you need to be able to access this port via your local proxy.
  • 123 - Relevant if you are using an NTP Server that is outside of your network. You must ensure that your firewall allows outbound access to port 123 udp. This access cannot be mediated by a proxy, it must be direct (NAT is allowed).
  • 53 - Relevant if you are using a DNS Server that is outside of your network. You must ensure that your firewall allows outbound access to both port 53 tcp and port 53 udp. This access cannot be mediated by a proxy, it must be direct (NAT is allowed).

NTP Server Requirements

An NTP Server(s) is required for Certificate validation (start date and duration), and all related encryption functions. Devices must have access to at least one NTP Server, whether local or external. Note that if a device's System Time is not correct, it may take several attempts to synchronize with the NTP Server before the device connects to the OmniVista Cirrus Server.

Device Prerequisites

The minimum device software versions for onboarding and management are detailed below. The minimum onboarding versions are required for the device to connect the to the OmniVista Cirrus Server. The specified management software versions are required to support all of the management features available in OmniVista Cirrus 4.6.2.


For onboarding (call home and connection to the OmniVista Cirrus Server), devices must be running the following minimum software versions:

  • AOS 6.7.2.R05
  • AOS 8.5R2
  • AWOS 3.0.5.xx.


Devices must be running the software versions specified below to support all of the management features available in OmniVista Cirrus 4.6.2.

  • Essential Switch (E) - OS2260/OS2360 – (5.1R2), OS6350/OS6450 - (6.7.2.R08), OS6360 (8.8R1), OS6465 (8.8R1), OS6560 (8.8R1)
  • Core Switch (C) - OS6900 (8.8R1)

  • Stellar AP (SA) -OAW-AP1101, OAW-AP1201, OAW-AP1201BG, OAW-1201H, OAW-1201L (available in Brazil only), OAW-AP1221, OAW-AP1222, OAW-AP1231, OAW-AP1232, OAW-AP1251, OAW-AP1301, OAW-AP1301H, OAW-AP1311, OAW-AP1321, OAW-AP1322, OAW-AP1331, OAW-AP1351, OAW-AP1361, OAW-AP1362 (AWOS 4.0.4 MR1 or 4.0.4 MR2)

When licensed devices call home, OmniVista Cirrus checks the software versions the devices are running and, if necessary, triggers an update of the device to the software required to support OmniVista Cirrus 4.6.2. In addition, a software update for a device can be manually triggered from the device list.

Supported Devices

A full list of ALE supported devices/AOS releases can be found here.

REST API Management

You can use REST APIs for scripting or integration with any third-party systems in your management network. Available OmniVista REST APIs can be found here


AP Registration

Editing an AP Group to Add a New Profile Resets the Timezone to the UTC-8 Default Value (OVE-11531)
If you create an AP Group and specify a non-default timezone, such as “(UTC-07:00)Chihuahua,La-Paz,Matatlan”, then edit the AP Group to add any type of new profile, the timezone is reset back to the default value without any notification.
Workaround: Check the timezone value and change, if necessary, before clicking the Commit button on the Edit AP Group screen.

CLI Scripting

Cannot Work Simultaneously on Two SSH Tabs Opened Inside CLI Scripting (OVE-9022)
User cannot work with two SSH terminals (tabs) in one browser tab. Terminal screen shows incorrect format when opening a new terminal and returning to previously opened tab.
Workaround: Open SSH terminals in multiple browser tabs. Problem will be fixed in OmniVista Cirrus 4.7.1.

Device Catalog

OV Managed Device Automatically Deleted and License Unassigned (OVC-4683)
Summary: A currently-managed device can be automatically deleted, its license unassigned, and the device moved to “Registered” if the IP address assignments of devices are changed.

For example, suppose there are two devices discovered and managed by OmniVista: Device1 with IP address "IP1", and Device2 with IP address "IP2". At some point, the IP Address assignment for these devices are changed as follows: Device1 IP address is changed from "IP1" to "IP2"; and Device2 IP address is changed from "IP2" to something else. This scenario could happen, for example, if the DHCP Server is restarted and does not attempt to give the same IP address as before to the DHCP clients.

If Device1 is then rediscovered (as part of periodic polling or by a manual user action), Device2 will be deleted from OmniVista when OmniVista discovers that Device1 now has the "IP2" IP address to avoid the situation where two devices have the same IP address in OmniVista.
Workaround: NA - Informational.

Upgrades Are Triggered Differently for 6x and 8x Switches (OVC-435)
Summary: The Activation Server checks the "current software version" from the switches to determine whether a switch should upgrade or not. Because of the different behaviors of 6x and 8x Switches, there may be some inconsistencies about when a switch will be triggered to upgrade.

  • AOS 8x switches send current software version of the current running directory.
  • AOS 6x switches send current software version of WORKING directory when in sync.

Example AOS 6x:
Assume switch comes up in the Certified Directory.
Assume /flash/working has the same image version as "desired software version" set in Device Catalog, whereas /flash/certified has a lower version. Since AOS 6x sends current software version of /flash/working, upgrade will NOT be triggered on the switch.

Example AOS 8x:
Assume switch comes up in the Certified Directory.
Assume /flash/cloud has the same image version as "desired software version" set in Device Catalog, whereas /flash/certified has a lower version. Since AOS 8x sends current software version of current running directory which is /flash/certified. there will be an upgrade. The switch will download the desired software version to /flash/cloud and reboots from /flash/cloud.

Workaround: NA - Informational.

Auto-Upgrade for Switches Running Lower Than AOS 6.7.2.R7 (OVC-8103)
Summary: Switches running an AOS version lower than 6.7.2.R7 will be automatically upgraded to AOS 6.7.2.R7 even if you select the "Do Not Upgrade" option when adding the device to the Device Catalog.
Workaround: N/A - Informational.


Upgrade Workflow Should Be Changed When Device Is Loaded From Certified Directory (OVC-435)
Summary: When an AOS 6.x Switch with "Set to Software Version" set to "Latest Version" contacts the OmniVista Server, the server checks the Working Directory to see if it is running the latest AOS software. If the Working Directory contains the latest software version, an upgrade will not be triggered, even if the Certified Directory is running on an older software version. To upgrade the Certified Directory to the latest software, reboot the switch from the Working Directory.
Workaround: NA - Informational.

Can't Display Running Directory Information for NaaS Device in Degraded Mode (OVE-11416)
When you launch an SSH session to a NaaS device in the Degraded License Mode and send the show running-directory command, an error message is displayed. For example:

-> show running-directory
ERROR: CLI commands are blocked in Naas license degraded mode.

Workaround: No workaround at this time.

OmniVista does not Indicate Failure Reason when NaaS Device is in Degraded Mode (OVE-11475)
OmniVista does not indicate the reason for a failure when a configuration or software upgrade through Managed Devices fails because the NaaS license has expired on the device.
Workaround: No workaround at this time.


mDNS Server and Client Policy: UI Offers Policy Lists in "Access Role Profile" Drop-Down (OVE-10559)
Summary: When creating or editing an mDNS Server or Client Policy, the Access Role Profile drop-down is populated with Unified Policy Lists, not Access Role Profiles.
Workaround: Do not use the drop-down list suggestions. Manually enter the Access Role Profile Name in the field and click on the Add icon (+) to configure an Access Role Profile for the policy.


The alaNaasLicenseInstalledAlert Trap Shows the Wrong Value (OVE-11374)
When a Naas license (Management, Upgrade, Essential, Advanced) is installed on a switch, the alaNaasLicenseInstalledAlert trap is sent. However, when the trap is viewed on the Notifications Home Screen (Network – Notifications) the trap displays incorrect values.
Workaround: No workaround at this time.

The NaaS VC Device Sends the alaNaasInconsistentModeAlert Trap Multiple Times (OVE-11414)
When a device in a VC configuration changes mode (for example, CAPEX to NaaS), the alaNaasInconsistentModeAlert Trap is sent multiple times and absorbed into the trapAbsorptionTrap. The alaNaasInconsistenModeAlert Trap should only be sent once when an inconsistent mode is detected.
Workaround: No workaround at this time.

The NaaS License Expiry Time is Reported in the Number of Whole Days Remaining until the License Expires (OVE-11415)
On a NaaS device, the show naas license CLI command displays the Expiry Time. This reflects the number of whole days (24 hours/day) until the license expires. For example, If the time remaining until expiration is 30 days and 21 hours, the Expiry Time is reported as 30 days not 31 days.

A NaaS device sends the alaNaasExpirtyDayAlert trap at 30 days, 7 days, and 0 days. If the remaining time before the license expires is 10 hours, this trap is not sent until those 10 hours have elapsed. However, the Expiry Time will show “0 days”.

No workaround at this time.


The OmniVista Topology Map does not Display the LLDP Link Between an AOS 8.8R1 OmniSwitch and an AWOS 4.0.4 AP (CRAOS8X-31942)
If an AP is connected to an OmniSwitch running AOS 8.8R1, the LLDP link between the OmniSwitch and the AP does not always display on the OmniVista Topology Map. In addition, if an alias was configured for the OmniSwitch port to which the AP is connected, the port alias is not advertised to the AP; therefore, not reported by OmniVista. This problem does not occur if the OmniSwitch is running the previous AOS release; only when running 8.8R1.
Workaround: No workaround at this time.


HTTPs Traffic is Not redirected to Portal Page for an HSTS Website (OVC-1777)
Summary: The first time a user opens an HSTS website, they are redirected to the portal page, as expected. The second time a user opens an HSTS website, the redirection will not work. If the user clears browser cache and retries connecting to the HSTS website, it will work. The behavior depends on the browser used. Chrome is very strict, so the problem is always seen, Firefox is not as strict; the problem will still happen but not as frequently.
Workaround: There is no workaround at this time.

No IPv4 or IPv6 Value Displayed in UPAM Authentication Record (OVC-6061)
Summary: Client IP address is not displayed in UPAM Authentication Record.
Workaround: No workaround at this time.

Delay in UPAM Interactions After Subscriber Gets a Paid Account (OVC-6806)
Summary: After a subscriber gets a paid account, UPAM related interactions will not work until free radius server is restarted (at 00:00 AM the subsequent day).
Workaround: There will be a delay in realizing any expected changes in UPAM function when any of the following occurs:

  • Creation of a new tenant
  • Activation of a different RADIUS Server Certificate
  • Synchronization of RADIUS Attribute Dictionary at OmniVista with RADIUS Server
  • Edit of NAS Client details.

After any of the above actions, expected UPAM changes will take effect after the following midnight (00:01 a.m. PST), as these require a restart of the OmniVista internal RADIUS Server. The OmniVista internal RADIUS Server is restarted periodically at midnight PST. All tenants sharing the same OmniVista VM will experience a brief period of interruption of UPAM RADIUS functionality during this periodic restart.

WiFi4EU not Connected to Captive Portal (OVE-11164)
The validity period for Captive Portal authentication defaults to 30 days, but WiFi4EU requirement is maximum 24 hours.
Workaround: There is no workaround.

Web Content Filtering

If an AP Client is using a Mobile Application, WCF does not Work (OVE-10205)
Summary: When client access uses a mobile application (e.g., Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, etc.), there are no restrictions; the application is not blocked and will load properly, as if WCF is disabled on the AP.
No workaround at this time.

WCF Limitation when a Client Accesses the Internet through an HTTP/HTTPS Proxy (OVE-11466)
Summary: When a client is behind a proxy, the client doesn’t request the AP to resolve the DNS query but directly requests the proxy server. As a result, the AP does not get the opportunity to perform the WCF function, so the accept/reject of a website does not work as configured/expected by the user on OmniVista.
Workaround: No workaround at this time.


Client Name Field Blank for Clients Running iOS 14 (OVC-8287)
Summary: The Client Name field in the “List of All Client on All APs” is not displayed for devices running iOS 14.
Workaround: No workaround at this time. The problem occurs on devices running iOS 14 as they do not send Option 12 in the DHCP message.

RF Profile Not Supported on AP1201BG (OVE-10781)
Summary: Stellar OAW-AP1201BG does not support RF profiles, as it is a BLE gateway.
Workaround: No workaround at this time.

Social Login Fail with Google Account (OVC-8901)
The default list of URLs shown when selecting Social login vendors (Google, Facebook…) does not include country specific URLs.
Workaround: Manually add/append the required URLs to the list of “Whitelist Domains” when you configure the SSID.

Stellar AP Connectivity to OS22x60 does not Work (OVE-11467)
Summary: The trust VLAN tag option on OS22x60 ports connected to a Stellar AP does not work. As a result, the wireless client VLAN-tagged traffic forwarded by the AP to the switch is blocked.
Workaround: No workaround at this time.

"Export VPN Settings" with Shorthand Mask Option does not Show the List Peer IP Address (OVE-11444)
When the client VPN IP address pool of a Data VPN Server is created with the Shorthand Mask option and the VPN settings are exported, the list peer IP address is not shown in the exported output.
Workaround: Do not use the Shorthand Mask option for the client IP address pool.


If You Remove a Master from a Virtual Chassis Slave Devices Lose Connectivity
Summary: If You Remove a Master from a Virtual Chassis (VC), Slave devices Lose Connectivity Due to stale certificates. Devices use a certificate to communicate with OmniVista Cirrus. This certificate is given to the devices by the OmniVista Cirrus on their first Activation attempt. In a VC, the Master chassis is issued a certificate for its Serial Number and this certificate is copied over to all the Slaves. If the owner of the certificate (Master) is removed permanently from the VC, the remaining chassis will form a VC and attempt activation using the certificate of the old Master, but will be unable to activate using this certificate. Customers should raise a ticket with ALE Customer Support to overcome this issue. After understanding the VC topology, ALE Customer Support might take a decision to remove the certificate from the VC and enable the remaining chassis in the VC to attempt Cloud Activation afresh.
Workaround: Raise a ticket with ALE Customer Support. After investigating the VC topology, ALE Customer Support may decide to remove the certificate from the VC and enable the remaining chassis in the VC to re-attempt activation.

Problem Connecting to Switch with OV Assistant When Multiple Bluetooth Dongles Present (OVC-7240)
Summary: The OmniVista Assistant uses the Bluetooth dongle MAC address to initiate a connection to a switch. If multiple Bluetooth dongles are active at the same time, OmniVista Assistant may initiate a connection to an unexpected dongle.
Workaround: Make sure there are no other active Bluetooth dongles in the area. And make sure the correct model and serial number appear under "Paired Devices" before initiating a connection to a switch.
