Description

Connecting osmo-bsc and osmo-hnbgw to the MSC and SGSN via an OsmoSTP instance, it is currently not possible to detect that the MSC or SGSN has restarted.

Scenario: using a sysmoBTS as a NITB, change MSC config, restart MSC -- now osmo-bsc happily continues to run and does not even notice that it is an entirely new MSC instance running in the core net now.

In the old days, the SCCPlite link would go down, but since now OsmoSTP is in-between and has no concept of who depends on who, no-one is notifying BSC or HNBGW that MSC or SGSN have gone down. Find out how this is intended to be solved if at all, and devise a way how osmo-bsc will restart and/or reconnect to a new MSC instance, and so forth.
