771 MMS Server response to unsupported Trigger Options in Buffered and Unbuffered Reports
Created: 22 Sep 2011
Status: Not Applicable
Part: Part 8-1 (2004)
Issue: The standard does not define how the MMS Server has to respond to an MMS Client attempting to enable Trigger Options (TrgOps) in the Buffered Report Control Block (BRCB) or Unbuffered Report Control Block (URCB) that are not supported by the MMS Server. Some MMS Server implementations today will accept and acknowledge the write but only enable the Trigger Options that are supported, in other implementations the MMS Server will not accept the write and therefore not enable any of the Trigger Options.
Proposal: The MMS Server shall positively acknowledge the write to the MMS Client and enable the Trigger Options that are supported according to the Client's request even if the Client has attempted to enable Trigger Options that are not supported by the Server.
