Alarm Information
Handling Process
Check all configuration on device. Found that RRPP working-mode is GB on S7700, but on S57 it is HW mode. Because of different mode, there are different node and configuration on Switch.
Let customer change RRPP working-mode to HW same with S5700 and test it works fine.
Root Cause
1. Wrong Configuration
2. RRPP calculation Issue
1. Changing RRPP working-mode needs to disable RRPP first and delete the old configuration
2. On S5700, RRPP only supports HW  working-mode and cannot be configured. S7700 supports both modes.
