No LPT support on GE electrical ports
Question: A customer conducts an LPT test on the 12LOG board on the OSN 6800. During the test, it is found that only GE optical ports of the LOG board support LPT, and LPT on GE electrical ports fails. The customer wants to know whether the failure is caused due to a device fault or product specifications issue. Analysis: None Root cause: None Answer: According to a confirmation with Huawei R&D engineers, LPT is an optical-port feature and is not supported by GE electrical ports. This is determined by LTP specifications and is not related to products. Suggestion and conclusion: All GE electrical ports do not support LPT.

Working mode settings of GE ports when LPT function is enabled
When the dual-end working mode is Auto and the LPT function is enabled, you are advised to set the GE port working mode to Auto&Negotiation.
