I made my changes, rebooted and still cannot ping anything outside my local subnet, but the ,#401 took and made the test call just fine. The system "updated" something for about 10 minutes (it started by saying it would take 19 minutes but finished up pretty quick). I invoked: echo mls /SwSystem | tivosh but nothing regarding 6.3 showed up. I was hoping the data updating was extracting the slices from a cache somewhere but I guess not. I checked my account and it's still in good standing. I think the bad account errors were slicer-related, but hey, documenting the mundane may help someone.
