Avaya has released software 6.1.5 for the Ethernet Routing Switch 5500/5600 series switches.
The following issues have been resolved;
- The new unit config control feature (NUQC) did not work properly, for instance, when a third unit was added to the stack, it was not correctly configured (wi00554951).
- A SW exception in the SNMP task that caused a base unit reset is now addressed (wi00554965).
- An EAP enabled port with User based Policy configured timed out when a PC client went to sleep mode (wi00554946).
- With LACP configured, some times the standby links were not properly recognized (wi00600984).
- Some times POE powered IP phones would get the wrong VLAN ID after a stack reset (wi00686407).
- A security vulnerability to DoS attack has now been fixed (wi00496350).
- A memory leak that caused stack instability is resolved (wi00555049).
- The LACP link was not properly removed from the aggregation during a unidirectional link failure (wi00488102).
- A static route that went inactive, did not recover until a unit reset (wi00692259).
- A log message was not generated when SLPP disabled a port (wi00554966).
- The DHCP snooping entries were not properly removed with IP source guard configured (wi00554988).

- The RIP updates with the destination address of 255.255.255.255 were not recognized (wi00703945).
- Certain laptops did not work properly with DHCP snooping enabled (wi00733255).
- Some VRRP Configurations were lost when a non-base unit was powered off and then the base unit was powered off/on (wi00731771).

- A problem with updating the remote GBIC info caused a SW exception, this issue is now resolved (wi00824536).
- Some times rebooting the non-base unit caused a broadcast storm on remaining DMLT links (wi00496279)
