10.1 EDK - "WARNING:MDT - The value for the parameter clock_generator_0:C_DCM0_CLKIN_PERIOD - is not specified in MHS"


The following warning occurs after I create a Base System Builder Design: 


"WARNING:MDT - The value for the parameter clock_generator_0:C_DCM0_CLKIN_PERIOD 


a\clock_generator_v2_1_0.mpd line 181 is not specified in the MHS. As a 

result, the default value (8.000) is used from the MPD. However, the value 

should be 10.000000. Please add this parameter in the MHS and set it's value 

to : 10.000000 . Please note that this warning will be converted to an ERROR 

in EDK 11.1"


You will see one warning for each DCM not used in the clock_generator module. You can safely ignore these warnings because these DCMs are not being used and you do not have to set this parameter. 


If you do not want to see the warning, you can set the C_DCMx_CLKIN_PERIOD parameter. 


This problem has been fixed in the latest 10.1 Service Pack available at: 


The first service pack containing the fix is 10.1 Service Pack 2.
