165   Improper Error Response for GetDataSetValues

Created: 20 May 2005

Status: In Force (green)

Part: Part 8-1 (2004)


Page: 47

Clause: 14.3.1


Category: Issue may impact interoperability of implementations of Edition 1


During testing, a GetDataSetValues requests was executed for a non-existent DataSet. Table 28 indicates that a listOfAccessResult needs to be returned, but the MMS specification indicates that OBJECT-UNDEFINED as a ReadResponseError is the correct response.

Table 23 does not differentiate between AccessResultErrors and error responses.

This impacts several abstract cases.


The tables in 14.3.1 need to be clarified for the negative response cases to not refer to Table 23. We need to create another table that discusses the class/code combinations to be returned in the response- case. For the case in point, the response- for Table 28 needs to indicate that the ACSI instance-not-available be translated to an MMS ErrorResponse of class=DEFINITION/code=OBJECT-UNDEFINED.

Since the issue is an ACCESS error (e.g. VGET in MMS), I suggest a minor change to the original proposal and that a MMS ErrorResponse of Class= ACCESS and Error Code= OBJECT-NON-EXISTENT be returned. 23 May 05 Triage
