Known Limitations [UR-4071AP]

[UR-03475SG]

WOL cannot resume from S5 in AC

Reference:

ECR129967 Win 8:Wake on LAN cant resume from S5 in AC Mode

Reason :

Limitation approved. Help center info

WOL cannot resume from S4 in DC with BIOS Settings: AC and Battery

Reference:

ECR166870 RG2:W864:WOL wakes system in DC mode,BIOS set to AC mode

Reason :

Limitation approved. Help center info

Modify Option is grayed out

Reference:

ECR220226/ECR220227Win7/Win8.1:RTK:Modify option in Ethernet Installer is not clickable

Reason:

The Modify"s behavior is the same with Remove, it is unnecessary create two the same options in the installer.

But the Modify option cannot remove from installer, because it is installer limitation.

Therefore, we grayed out this option to disable this function.

Restriction

1. No Opera PDA Web Browser Testing in Win 8/8.1

Information

1. Wake on LAN design based on Microsoft Website http://support.microsoft.com/kb/2776718

The "Wake on LAN" (WOL) feature wakes a computer from a low-power state when a network adapter detects a WOL event. Typically, such an event is a specially constructed Ethernet packet. The default behavior in response to WOL events has changed from Windows 7 to Windows 8.

Windows 7

In Windows 7, the default shutdown operation puts the system into the classic shutdown state (S5), and all devices are put into the lowest power state (D3). WOL from S5 is not officially supported in Windows 7. However, some network adapters can be left armed for waking if enough residual power is available. Therefore, waking from S5 is possible on some systems if enough residual power is supplied to the network adapter even though the system is in the S5 state and devices are in D3.

Windows 8 and Windows 8.1

In Windows 8 and Windows 8.1, the default shutdown behavior puts the system into the hybrid shutdown state (S4), and all devices are put into D3. WOL from S4 or S5 is unsupported. Network adapters are explicitly not armed for WOL in either S5 or S4 cases because users expect zero power consumption and battery drain in the shutdown state. This behavior removes the possibility of invalid wake-ups when an explicit shutdown is requested. Therefore, WOL is supported only from sleep (S3) or hibernation (S4) states in Windows 8 and 8.1.

Defect Reference: ECR167902 W8:Realtek:Shutdown WOL is available in DM

Note :

  1. Basically the latest Preload. BIOS, ECFW, ME should be used
  2. Refer to Driver List, if the target Drivers and Utilities aren't installed on the Preloaded system, Update / install manually (Read Build document carefully)

DHCPV6-DNS Interaction
  • In IPv6 network environment, multiple Domain Name System suffixes can be correctly covered. (This was broken without SP1.) (Example: yamato.ibm.com and ibm.com are both set and searched for IPv6 now.)

Pre-requisites or specific configuration for the scenario

DHCPV6 Stateful server joined to a domain (e.g., lhserver.com)

V6 scope configured (e.g. as 3ffe::)

Option 24 configured (e.g., as lhserver.com)

Step-by-step scenario description

Enable V6 stateful mode on the client.

Verify the output of ipconfig /all.

Note: The client should have the ipv6 address.

Verify that the configured domain (lhserver.com) appears in the DNS Suffix Search list, Connection -specific DNS suffix and Connection -specific DNS suffix search list.

From the test client machine, ping a dummy machine registered in the lhserver.com domain, e.g. ping dummy where dummy is the hostname of the dummy machine.

Note: You can verify this with the DNS packets captured using Netmon.

Expected results

The test client should try pinging it through dummy.lhserver.com and the ping request should succeed.

Single Sign on for Wired Networks
  • Single Sign On for wired network is supported and SSO can be checked in Event Viewer. (SSO for Wireless LAN was already supported.)

Scenario 1 ? SSO over Wired:

The IT department requires that all wired devices require layer2 authentication (802.1X, WPA, WPA2) to succeed prior to access to the network. The IT admin configures the network to require user name/password access for both Winlogon Credentials as well as username password for authenticated network access. The user launches/opens the LogonUI, and is prompted for a single username and password. The user enters the credentials and is sequentially authenticated to the network and then the domain. The specific hardware requirement is a network that supports 802.1x authentication. The user must have a wired sso profile applied. See the Notes section below for a sample profile.

Apply an SSO wired profile.

Logoff/ Logon.

Check event logs to ensure sso occurred.

Scenario 2 - Change Password over SSO

A user?s network logon password has expired. When the user goes to logon to the network/machine a change password screen will be invoked, and the user will be able to change his/her sso logon password. No specific hardware requirement. The user must have a wired/wireless sso profile applied. See the Notes section below ? A1 & A2 for a sample wired /wireless profile.

Ensure the user?s credentials is set to be expired.

Apply an SSO wired/wireless profile.

Logoff/Logon.

User should be prompted for a password changed for SSO credentials.

User should be able to change password successfully.

Scenario 3 - The ability to correct a wrong password entered for SSO

A user incorrectly enters his/her SSO network logon password. A screen to correct the user?s SSO password will be invoked, and the user will be given a chance to correct his/her SSO password. No specific hardware requirement. The user must have a wired/wireless sso profile applied. See the Notes section below-A1 & A2 for a sample wired /wireless profile.

Apply an SSO wired/wireless profile.

Logoff/Logon.

At the Logon screen enter the SSO password incorrectly.

The user should be prompted to correct his/her SSO password.

The user should be able to logon with the corrected SSO password.

Known Limitations [UR-4071AP]

[UR-03475SG]

WOL cannot resume from S5 in AC

Reference:

ECR129967 Win 8:Wake on LAN cant resume from S5 in AC Mode

Reason :

Limitation approved. Help center info

WOL cannot resume from S4 in DC with BIOS Settings: AC and Battery

Reference:

ECR166870 RG2:W864:WOL wakes system in DC mode,BIOS set to AC mode

Reason :

Limitation approved. Help center info

Modify Option is grayed out

Reference:

ECR220226/ECR220227Win7/Win8.1:RTK:Modify option in Ethernet Installer is not clickable

Reason:

The Modify"s behavior is the same with Remove, it is unnecessary create two the same options in the installer.

But the Modify option cannot remove from installer, because it is installer limitation.

Therefore, we grayed out this option to disable this function.

Restriction

1. No Opera PDA Web Browser Testing in Win 8/8.1

Information

1. Wake on LAN design based on Microsoft Website http://support.microsoft.com/kb/2776718

The "Wake on LAN" (WOL) feature wakes a computer from a low-power state when a network adapter detects a WOL event. Typically, such an event is a specially constructed Ethernet packet. The default behavior in response to WOL events has changed from Windows 7 to Windows 8.

Windows 7

In Windows 7, the default shutdown operation puts the system into the classic shutdown state (S5), and all devices are put into the lowest power state (D3). WOL from S5 is not officially supported in Windows 7. However, some network adapters can be left armed for waking if enough residual power is available. Therefore, waking from S5 is possible on some systems if enough residual power is supplied to the network adapter even though the system is in the S5 state and devices are in D3.

Windows 8 and Windows 8.1

In Windows 8 and Windows 8.1, the default shutdown behavior puts the system into the hybrid shutdown state (S4), and all devices are put into D3. WOL from S4 or S5 is unsupported. Network adapters are explicitly not armed for WOL in either S5 or S4 cases because users expect zero power consumption and battery drain in the shutdown state. This behavior removes the possibility of invalid wake-ups when an explicit shutdown is requested. Therefore, WOL is supported only from sleep (S3) or hibernation (S4) states in Windows 8 and 8.1.

Defect Reference: ECR167902 W8:Realtek:Shutdown WOL is available in DM

Note :

  1. Update the EEPROM utility for Gigabit Ethernet and 10/100Mbps ethernet.
  2. Install the correct driver for Gigabit ethernet and 10/100Mbps ethernet.

3. Read Build Letter for procedure/restrictions.

DHCPV6-DNS Interaction
  • In IPv6 network environment, multiple Domain Name System suffixes can be correctly covered. (This was broken without SP1.) (Example: yamato.ibm.com and ibm.com are both set and searched for IPv6 now.)

Pre-requisites or specific configuration for the scenario

DHCPV6 Stateful server joined to a domain (e.g., lhserver.com)

V6 scope configured (e.g. as 3ffe::)

Option 24 configured (e.g., as lhserver.com)

Step-by-step scenario description

Enable V6 stateful mode on the client.

Verify the output of ipconfig /all.

Note: The client should have the ipv6 address.

Verify that the configured domain (lhserver.com) appears in the DNS Suffix Search list, Connection -specific DNS suffix and Connection -specific DNS suffix search list.

From the test client machine, ping a dummy machine registered in the lhserver.com domain, e.g. ping dummy where dummy is the hostname of the dummy machine.

Note: You can verify this with the DNS packets captured using Netmon.

Expected results

The test client should try pinging it through dummy.lhserver.com and the ping request should succeed.

Single Sign on for Wired Networks
  • Single Sign On for wired network is supported and SSO can be checked in Event Viewer. (SSO for Wireless LAN was already supported.)

Scenario 1 ? SSO over Wired:

The IT department requires that all wired devices require layer2 authentication (802.1X, WPA, WPA2) to succeed prior to access to the network. The IT admin configures the network to require user name/password access for both Winlogon Credentials as well as username password for authenticated network access. The user launches/opens the LogonUI, and is prompted for a single username and password. The user enters the credentials and is sequentially authenticated to the network and then the domain. The specific hardware requirement is a network that supports 802.1x authentication. The user must have a wired sso profile applied. See the Notes section below for a sample profile.

Apply an SSO wired profile.

Logoff/ Logon.

Check event logs to ensure sso occurred.

Scenario 2 - Change Password over SSO

A user?s network logon password has expired. When the user goes to logon to the network/machine a change password screen will be invoked, and the user will be able to change his/her sso logon password. No specific hardware requirement. The user must have a wired/wireless sso profile applied. See the Notes section below ? A1 & A2 for a sample wired /wireless profile.

Ensure the user?s credentials is set to be expired.

Apply an SSO wired/wireless profile.

Logoff/Logon.

User should be prompted for a password changed for SSO credentials.

User should be able to change password successfully.

Scenario 3 - The ability to correct a wrong password entered for SSO

A user incorrectly enters his/her SSO network logon password. A screen to correct the user?s SSO password will be invoked, and the user will be given a chance to correct his/her SSO password. No specific hardware requirement. The user must have a wired/wireless sso profile applied. See the Notes section below-A1 & A2 for a sample wired /wireless profile.

Apply an SSO wired/wireless profile.

Logoff/Logon.

At the Logon screen enter the SSO password incorrectly.

The user should be prompted to correct his/her SSO password.

The user should be able to logon with the corrected SSO password.
