Calling Search Space

Unanswered Question
Jul 17th, 2007

CCM version 4.2.3

The limit been 1024

I have seen that documentation, but for testing only when I add partitions for CSS exceeding 512 characters, I get a pop up saying to remove some partitions and make sure that character are 512.

Exact Message:

Calling Search Space CSS character limit has been exceeded. The list of selected partition names has 933 characters.

The total number of characters for the list of partiton names in a CSS, separated by colon (for example, partition 1:partition 2:partition 3), may not exceed 512 characters. Remove some partitions or shorten the names of the partitions you want to include in this Calling Search Space.

Please advise,


I have this problem too.

AFAIK, the way this works is the CSS for the Device or the Line cannot be more than 512 characters.

Note that it is the line/device combination of Calling Search Spaces which is concatenated by the software. The current size for this concatenation is 1023 bytes, and this includes colon seperators between partition names as

well as a null string termination character at the very end of the CSS.

Hope this helps
