Some ID addresses can not be used in Metro1000 because the equipment will not boot up.
There is a rule for this situation: The lower 8 bit can not be all 0 or 1.
if it happens the equipment will not start.
According to SS43SCB Deployment Guide, there are two 8-bit switches used for set the NE ID and for development and commissioning.
The first 12 switches from right to left are used for NE ID.
The last 4 switches are for development and commissioning.
After read this information, we can think we can use any ID from 1 to 4095 to set the Metro1000 ID, but this is not correct. The first 8 switches from right to left is also used to erase the host software.
Because of this, you can not use any ID of the list bellow:
255, 256, 511, 512, 767, 768, 1023, 1024, 1279, 1280, 1535, 1536, 1791, 1792, 2047, 2048, 2303, 2304, 2559, 2560, 2815, 2816, 3071, 3072, 3327, 3328, 3583, 3584, 3839, 3840, 4095.
It happens because for these IDs, you have to turn on all switches of the first DIP and it is used to delete the host software.
