If you have scripts that utilize upload type, they must be modified to include the new syntax. Refer to the CPC Programmer's Guide for details.

Support for backup PVCs has been added. A backup PVC occurs when two PVCs share the same VPI/VCI/DLCI value on a common endpoint. The active PVC is called the primary PVC, and the backup PVC is called the secondary PVC.The primary PVC uses bandwidth and VPI/VCI/DLCI values at both the A endpoint and the Z endpoint. The secondary PVC uses neither bandwidth nor VPI/VCI/DLCI values at the A endpoint because it shares this endpoint with the primary PVC. However, it uses bandwidth and VPI/VCI/DLCI values at the Z endpoint. A backup PVC is used for network redundancy.

When creating objects through the FTI, you must specify the object's parent pointer. The parent pointer will be verified during CMS processing. This validation will not be done during upload. The parent pointer will be verified to ensure that

it is pointing to the correct class

it is pointing at an object that has already been saved (either pending or current)

If the validation fails, the check will fail with an appropriate error stack.

Values assigned to attributes that accept text strings, will now be verified to ensure that the length is compatible with the declared length of the attribute. These values are verified during a CMS save. If the validation fails, the save will fail with an appropriate error message.

In order to automatically allocate VPI/VCI/DLCI values you can only specify a value of -1. Using a value of 0 for any connection ID will no longer result in auto allocation.

The Site Dispatcher creates new Site Executors, each of which performs a single download request on behalf of an Equipment Module. Since there can be multiple Site Executors, there can be multiple concurrent downloads from Cisco Provisioning Center to the network. The Site Dispatcher Throttling feature provides a configurable limit to the number of concurrent downloads performed. Additional configuration parameters, provide limits on the numbers of Site Executors by particular site, by Equipment Module and system-wide. The configuration variables are listed below from highest to lowest priority.

The argument maxSiteExecutors, passed in through the C++ or TCL API. This is the same mechanism implemented in the previous release.

The configuration variable SYSSR.siteLimit_<siteId>, where <siteId> is the object ID of the site. The value specified is used to limit the number of Site Executors for the named site.

The configuration variable SYSSR.emSiteLimit_<EMId>, where <EMId> is the 2 character code for the EM. The value specified is used to limit the number of Site Executors for any one site managed by the named EM.

The configuration variable SYSSR.globalSiteLimit defines the total number of Site Executors allowed for any one site, regardless of which EM is managing that site.

Otherwise, there is no per-site limit.

The Orbix platform has been upgraded from 3.3 to 3.3.3. The backend engine with the Baltimore toolkit has changed the format of the .jpk file used by Orbix 3.3. New certificates must be created for existing installations. The old certificate authority, SyndesisCA can still be used. Refer to the CPC Programmer's Guide or details of creating a new certificates for SYCorbaDispatcher and AVCorbaDispatcher.

A template for Allocated Channels is provided in SR for logical ports and physical ports. The SR template provides a maximum of 96 DS0 channels. The GUI will display the number of channels indicated by the physical port attribute srmaxchans. Also, the starting channel number is indicated in the physical port attribute srstartchan.

A backup and restore utility has been added in this release. Backup captures a complete image of the Cisco Provisioning Center system and permits a complete restore. in order to back up an active Cisco Provisioning Center server using the sybackup utility, you must first backup your Informix server. Refer to the CPC Administration Guide for details.

Post-restore utilities, are also included, to reconcile inconsistencies between the file system and the RDBMS (i.e., Unix and Informix) resulting from the online backup operation.

Currently, the online backup and restore utility utilizes the "onbar" command in combination with ISM (Informix Storage Manager). ISM and Legato Networker can not be run on the same workstation, as these two utilities conflict with each other.

Since ISM is not required when using "ontape", you can use "ontape" for online backup and restore, if Legato Networker is running on the same workstation.

A new option has been added to the synptclean utility. The -p option removes patch backup files from the file system. This option requires an argument to describe which patch backup files to delete. For example, to remove all patch backup files, the command would be synptclean -p A.

It is now possible to suspend Cisco Provisioning Center without shutting down the system. Operation of the Cisco Provisioning Center server is suspended when:

The system load rises above a preset level, and it can no longer initiate CR or UR processing. System hold helps to prevent failure of the system due to resource overloading.

Implementing graceful shutdown, i.e. permitting existing processes to complete, but no longer initiating new work prior to shutdown.

You need to stop the system prior to backup. System hold is implemented rather than a shutdown, since terminating Cisco Provisioning Center may require that the OSS and gateway systems also be shutdown, thus avoiding an expensive global restart.

In the case of system hold, a request for a new sessions will fail with an error, and attempts to open a transaction will also result in an error. Existing sessions which already have an open transaction will not be affected.

The security access control features of Domain and VPN have been disabled as follows:

The Security Manager will be updated to ignore any specifications of domain and VPN in the securityInfo file.

For each privilege, such as Examine, Request, Approve, Modify, Schedule, ModifyProfile etc., that is specified in the securityInfo file domain/* vpn/* will be assumed.

The securityInfo file template will be updated to remove the sample userTypes: vpn1User and nps1_2User and to add a new userType: readOnly, which has Examine privileges only.

The attributes and their propagation rules will be retained.

A new API has been added to SYdbOptimize as follows:

usage: SYdbOptimize 
-l: optimization level (0 low - default is 1)
dbname: defaults to $CCPDB, if defined

The default optimization and database allow you to enter the command name as before without any arguments to gather more comprehensive RDBMS statistics during SYdbOptimize. This makes some queries run more quickly. There is, however, an increase in program execution time (up to 100%)

SYdbOptimize should be executed you have adequate time for the utility to run.

Installation

A complete Cisco Provisioning Center installation may now span multiple CD-ROMs. In this case, you must copy the contents of all of the Cisco Provisioning Center media to a local directory. You must then run the installer from the local directory and specify this local directory as the source when you are installing or upgrading components.

The installer checks your system to ensure that it meets the minimum hardware requirements. It check for the following:

That the available disk space is least 6000 MBytes

The physical memory (RAM) is at least 1200 MBytes.

The number of CPUs is 2 or more

The swap space is at least 1000 MBytes.

If these requirements are not met, a warning message is output to the log file and installation continues. Keep in mind that if the minimum hardware requirements are not met, your Cisco Provisioning Center installation may be unstable.

The installer can now support the addition of patches from a separate directory. Normally the installer will apply any and all required patches to the system that are present in the same directory as the component binary files (.bin). In Release 4.1.0 the installer can also look in a separate directory for additional patches.

In the third screen of the Installation application ("Operation Selection: Install, Upgrade, Remove) a field called "Extra directory for patches" is available. It can be blank or it can contain a directory. If you have some extra system patches that were delivered for installation with the rest of the system, put them in their own directory and specify the directory in this field.

Resource Models

The IP resource model has been updated:

Two attributes, riaddress and riaddrpool, have been added to IP Capability. When IP Capability is created and an Address Pool has been specified a /32 Loopback IP Address must be auto-allocated from the Address Pool indicated by the riaddrpool attribute. This IP Address must be created on the IP Interface of type "Loopback" and be placed in the IP Network indicated by riloopnetwork.

A network named "Global IP Network" will be created when the IP RM is installed.

The IP interface and the VRF must be on the same node. When rivrf has been changed all of the IP Addresses pointing to the IP Interface must be modify pending by the same transaction

The create and modify operations are now supported for the IP interface, IP over FR Interface, IP over ATM Interface, IP over LAN Interface, IP over Serial Interface, IP over SONET Interface, IP/SONET Adaptation, IP/Serial Adaptation classes.

A Loopback IP Interface class has been added. This class represents IP interfaces that do not have external connectivity (loopback interfaces).

For an IP Address, the Address Pool indicated by riaddrpool must be of type Loopback and have the same network as riipnetwork. The riaddrpool pointer is optional. The riaddrpool pointer is set to NULL when riipnetwork pointer is re-derived because of IP Network has changed in IP Capability or VRF.

When you are creating IP addresses, no two interfaces on the same node can have addresses in the same subnet.

Create, modify and delete operations are now supported for the IP Subnet, IP Static Route, IP Default Route, IP Aggregate Route, Address Pool and IP Address Pool Entry classes.

The RA resource model has been updated. Seven new classes have been added to the RA Resource model: ATM Network, Generic ATM Address, ATM Unmanaged Logic Port, ATM Network Profile, Generic ATM Address Profile, ATM Virtual Link Profile, ATM Unmanaged Logic Port Profile.

The RS resource model has been updated. One new object has been added to the RS Resource model: PDH signalled circuit. Also, the PDH Physical Port and PDH Logical Port classes have been merged to create a new PDH Port class.

Migration

Due to the complexities of migrating from the pre-4.0 Cisco Provisioning Center platform to the 4.1 platform, migration will be supported from Release 3.5 and 4.0.x only. This means that if you are at Release 3.4.2, you must first migrate to 3.5 and then migrate to 4.1.0.

Migrating from Pre-4.0 Cisco Provisioning Center Platform

You must first migrate Solaris2.5/Informix7.30 to Solaris7/Informix9.21

The full instructions are provided in a migration kit that is included on the CD for this release. Change your working directory to the CD and execute:

cp Solaris_Infrmx_migrate_35_40.tar /tmp
cd /tmp
tar xfv Solaris_Infrmx_migrate_35_40.tar
cd Solaris_Infrmx_migrate_35_40

Read the file migration.readme that you get from the tar file which provides step-by-step instructions for migrating your system Refer to the CPC Administration Guide for details.

Migrating from 4.0.x Cisco Provisioning Center Platform

If you are migrating from a 4.0.x release, you can use the installer to upgrade your existing components and add new ones.


Note In order for the installation utility to access your workstation, 127.0.0.1 localhost must be included in the /etc/hosts file.


Step 1 Ensure that you are working in a clean environment: The Java variables must be set but the Cisco Provisioning Center environment must not be sourced.

Step 2 Navigate to your 4.1.0 installation directory (this could be a CD-ROM or a local directory). This directory contains the installer file named Install.bin.

Step 3 As the Cisco Provisioning Center administrator, run the installer by entering the following at the command line:

Install.bin

Step 4 The welcome screen will appear. Click Next. The license window will appear. Once you have agreed to the terms of the license, click Next.

Step 5 Enter the required information in the Operation Selection window:

Beside Install Action, click the Upgrade radio button.

In the New Components field, specify the path to the 4.1.0 installation directory containing the 4.1.0 components. Select the path by clicking the selection button to the right of the field. When you click the search button, a dialog will appear prompting you for the directory where the components are located. Select the directory and click the Choose button.

In the Extra directory for patches field, specify the path (if necessary) to the directory containing any supplementary or custom component patches.

In the Directory for temp files field, specify the directory where you want the temporary installation files to be stored.

Step 6 Once you have finished, click the Next button. Enter the required information in the Install Type and Location window.

Step 7 Click on the product that you want to install. You can choose either Cisco Provisioning Center Server, Cisco Provisioning Center Web GUI or both.

Step 8 In the Cisco Provisioning Center Server Directory field, enter the path of the directory where the Cisco Provisioning Center server will be installed.

Step 9 In the Cisco Provisioning Center Web GUI Directory field, enter the path of the directory where the GUI server and Cisco Provisioning Center client directory will be installed.

Step 10 Once you have finished, click the Next button. Review the information in the Cisco Provisioning Center Installation Configuration Details window.

Step 11 When you have finished, click Next. Review the information in the CORBA Configuration Details window.

Step 12 When you have finished, click Next. Double click or use the arrow keys to select the components you want to install from the Available Components window. Once you select a component, it will appear in the Selected Components window.

When selecting a component, other dependent components will be automatically installed. You may see components added to the Selected Components pane that you did not explicitly select. These are dependent components.

Components that are already installed on your 4.0.x platform will be upgraded. Those that are new, will be added to your new 4.1.0 platform.

Step 13 When you have finished, click Next. Verify that the information shown in the Operation Confirmation window is accurate.

Step 14 Verify that the information is correct and click Next. Installation will begin. Once component installation is complete, you can start CORBA, the Cisco Provisioning Center server and the GUI. Refer to the NetProvision Installation Guide for details.


Patches

The patching utility had been updated and now includes the following changes:

If the patch does not successfully apply, the log file contained in $CCP_MNG/version_info will be tagged with the word "error".

The listing for the patch will contain the patch identifier and the patch filename. These will, most likely be the same, but there are cases where the patch file is renamed. In these cases, the line: "Listing for Patch XXXXXX, from file YYYYYYY", will show different values for XXXXXX and YYYYYY.

The patch listings have all been standardized.

To see the contents of a patch:


Step 1 Source the Cisco Provisioning Center environment.

Step 2 Navigate to the patch directory.

Step 3 Type the patch name with the -l option to see a listing of the contents of the patch.

PR#30202 - SCR to provide an API to resolve SO discovery handle

PR#30919 - Mismatch of SCR version during Migration of 4.0.5 to 4.1.0

Special Instructions:

The fix for PR# 29994 allows us to chunk the network and do the job in smaller pieces so we will not hit the Java memory limit. With this fix, SCR allows the Service Elements (SE) that are to be loaded, to be specified at the Node level, so that unnecessary SEs do not need to be loaded for a given service import. Here, SE means: Logical Ports, Physical Ports and PVC/CCs.

To utilize this feature, perform one of the following:

Identify the NODEs or NETWORKs (by running Cisco Provisioning Center FTI, for example) that the interested Ses belong to based on the network topology and services to be imported. i.e. five nodes and a network:

NODE: ESnt1/ESnd1 ESnt1/ESnd2 A1nt1/A1nd1 A1nt1/A1nd2 A1nt2/A1nd1

NETWORK: ESnt100/*

NODE is always in NetworkName/NodeName format and NETWORK is always in NetworkName/* or simply NetworkName format.

On the Cisco Provisioning Center server side, locate the SODiscovery the property file:

$CCP_CONFIG/SOdiscovery.properties

add or modify it like this:

discovery.se.loadWhenInNodes=ESnt100/*, \
ESnt1/ESnd1, ESnt1/ESnd2, \
A1nt1/A1nd1, A1nt1/A1nd2, A1nt2/A1nd1 

A comma (,) is used as the separator. With this configuration, SCR only loads LPorts, PPorts and PVC/CCs in network "ESnt100" and nodes" ESnt1/ESnd1", "ESnt1/ESnd2", "A1nt1/A1nd1", "A1nt1/A1nd2", "A1nt2/A1nd1"

If the property discovery.se.loadWhenInNodes is absent from $CCP_CONFIG/SOdiscovery.properties, it loads whole network(s) SEs into memory This is the previous behavior

PR#30777 - N7 Structured CBR logical port creation failed in the GUI.

SR_41.01_11.pch

PR#31066 - Changed inactive CORBA session management detection algorithm

Special Instructions:

The minimum time that a CORBA session will remain alive after the last client connection drops is 5 minutes. If this interval is to be changed then the value can be modified as indicated in $CCP_BIN/AVCorbaExecutor. Then Cisco Provisioning Center must be restarted.

A background thread polls for the client disconnect. The main thread periodically checks the background thread every minute. So the maximum time to detect a client disconnect is twice the background time plus a minute, i.e. the default max would be 11 minutes.

Notes and Known Issues

Open PRs listed below are for release 4.1.0 only.

PR Number
Description

9745

nps stop does not wait for ScriptManager to terminate

11218

While modifying an endpoint for the private line service, the threader cannot find a path

26306

Previous Button is not available on the Cisco Provisioning Center installer.

26410

Cisco Provisioning Center Installer dies if required.bin or other files are not in the installation directory.

28549

LinkServer losing connection and cannot reconnect in the same session

29245

Failed CRs not rejected automatically

30658

The generated name for AtmPVCx is incorrect.

30837

FR Services on a failed NNI Link were not moved.


The workaround for PR#9745 is to use the sleep command in all scripts after issuing nps stop.

CBR Service repair now updates the CBR endpoints by doubling its committed bandwidth and total available connections and then resetting them to their original values at the end of the operation. You can use this approach for CBR service modification. For example, open a transaction, update the CBR endpoints and then apply the transaction. Reset the CBR endpoints to their original values, when you are done.

The workaround for PR#26306 is to cancel the current installation and restart the installer

PR#26410: This should not happen since the files will exist on your CD. If you do encounter this problem, ensure that the files are in the correct location and start again. No changes have been made to your system, so restarting is safe.

This occurs under heavy load only. The workaround for PR#28549 is to stop and restart the session.

PR#29245: The change request (CR) will be rejected the next time the system is restarted.

Cisco Provisioning Center GUI

New Features

A new ordered list viewer is now available. This viewer provides an object view for the list and an embedded lister for the list entries. Refer to the CPC User's Guide for details.

Your current position is now highlighted on the tree viewer, except when navigating to a location not defined in the tree viewer

The GUI now passes the currently selected transaction information to the graphical viewer and detail viewer framework. The detail viewer and graphical viewer are now transaction sensitive. You will see a create-pending service object if the current selected transaction is the same transaction that was used to create the pending service object.

The User Lister, for both Active and All Users lists, is now sorted by last name and first name, by default.

A multi-page lister has been added to display pages of data when the volume of data is too large to show on one page. The maximum rows (DB_Max_Rows) for the lister can be configured in SCW default.cfg file. Refer to the CPC User's Guide for details.

You can now upgrade an existing GUI installation using the following command:

SCW_Install.bin -u 

You can use this command if you are upgrading from 4.x to 4.1.0 or from 3.x to 4.1.0. The command SCWUpdate3X_405 is obsolete.

The GUI now supports resolving SUBSTITUTE Groups defined in a Combination Object View on demand, in order to reduce GUI start-up time and memory consumption, in the event that a large number of Combination Object Views are defined in the metadata.

In order to support the Combination Object View, A boolean attribute (Combination) has been added to indicate whether the Object View is a Combination View or not. Object View with Combination=true is a Combination Object View.

The tool tips in the Lister have been enhanced to handle longer strings. This enhancement also handles wrapping of hidden characters. Word-wrapping for cell values will default to true to ensure backward compatibility. No optional truncation of long strings in the Lister will be available. Hidden characters can be moved to the front or the back of the cell. Transaction details on the transaction Lister will moved to the last column, since this field is long and could potentially be set to no-wrapping.

The GUI search algorithm has been enhanced to recognize the dash character (-) in range designations.

In the audit log that is displayed on the GUI, certain error messages that are returned from the equipment will have white spaces filtered out by the HTML parser. This causes a problem when trying to identify the source of the error directly from the GUI.

When displaying audit logs The GUI will now display error messages exactly as they are sent from the equipment and will prevent the HTML parser from filtering extra spaces.

The popup menu is now positioned at the leftmost area of main frame, so that the close button will be available when the popup menu is invoked from the rightmost cell in the Lister.

The state of the Tree View is now retained when you resize the browser window. The branch of the tree which you are using is highlighted to facilitate navigation.

The available action buttons on the transaction Lister and transaction object viewer are now the same.

The description field in a transaction lister is now returned to its original position upon rollback.

The GUI is now independent of XServer. The graphical viewer framework will use Pure Java AWT (PJA) which does not require a native graphics library in the operating system. The XServer library will not be used and the XServer is not required to be up and running on the machine where the GUI is installed.

The GUI now allows the Cisco Provisioning Center administrator to force a user to change their password on their next login. This is accomplished by setting the Password State field on create/modify user form to "Reset". When the user next tries to login to system, the GUI will redirect him/her to apassword change page before allowing him/her to login to system.

In addition the Cisco Provisioning Center administrator can now disable a user account without deleting the account. You can disable the user account in two way: manually disable or automatically disable by using the GUI security system.

Notes and Known Issues

The Monitoring Provisioning Transaction View is similar to the Provisioning Transactions View with the exception that the Selection section is replaced by the Start and Stop Monitoring option.

This is due to the fact that the listed Transactions are selected based on their states in the database. You can not select the types of Transactions to display. The only Transactions that appear on this lister, once monitoring has started, can be in any of the Transaction states listed below.

Service Creator Runtime Service Application

New Features

Support for Backup PVCs has been added. Three new attributes, srbackuprole, sra_consume_bw and srz_consume_bw, are used to model the Backup PVC functionality. A backup PVC is used for network redundancy.

Refer to the ATM Service Application Solution Guide or the Frame Relay Service Application Solution Guide for details.

SCR now provides the ability to query an object's pending version in order to provide transaction information to the GUI. This allows the GUI to pass the currently selected transaction information to the graphical viewer and detail viewer.

The SO discovery utility can now be used to set the profile for the service elements. When a new service object is discovered, the associated SEs are modified to point to the SE profile that is specified in the input file for SO discovery.

Partial Discovery is now supported for service applications that previously supported Service Discovery. Partial Service Discovery allows you to perform Service Discovery on part of your network. Currently only SE's are currently available for partitioning. All NCs/LCs and service objects are still loaded into memory. To enable partial discovery, use one of the following flags:

discovery.se.loadWhenInNodes

discovery.se.loadWhenInLATA

NC_Report can now be run separately, independent of the Service Discovery operation. NC_Cleanup has been updated to accommodate the new partial discovery.

Partial Discovery has been further enhanced and now supports concurrency and partial SO and SE/NC loading which improves performance and makes Service discovery more scalable.

The flag discovery.output.allvalidncs=true is now available in the SOdiscovery.properties file.

The policy callout feature allows you to use your own business logic to create the service import files. The framework of the policy callout is provided by SO Discovery, while you define the policy and its implementation. The SODiscovery script now accepts a new argument, -policy.

SODiscovery -policy "policy command" "policy input file name" 

If the argument "-policy". is not specified, no callout action will be taken.

PR#30641 - SCR sets SE srsoid when necessary

PR#30202 - SCR to provide an API to resolve SO discovery handle

PR#30919 - Mismatch of SCR version during Migration of 4.0.5 to 4.1.0

Special Instructions:

The fix for PR# 29994 allows us to chunk the network and do the job in smaller pieces so we will not hit the Java memory limit. With this fix, SCR allows the Service Elements (SE) that are to be loaded, to be specified at the Node level, so that unnecessary SEs do not need to be loaded for a given service import. Here, SE means: Logical Ports, Physical Ports and PVC/CCs.

To utilize this feature, perform one of the following:

Identify the NODEs or NETWORKs (by running Cisco Provisioning Center FTI, for example) that the interested SEs belong to based on the network topology and services to be imported. i.e. five nodes and a network:

NODE: ESnt1/ESnd1 ESnt1/ESnd2 A1nt1/A1nd1 A1nt1/A1nd2 A1nt2/A1nd1

NETWORK: ESnt100/*

NODE is always in NetworkName/NodeName format and NETWORK is always in NetworkName/* or simply NetworkName format.

On the Cisco Provisioning Center server side, locate the SODiscovery the property file:

$CCP_CONFIG/SOdiscovery.properties

add or modify it like this:

discovery.se.loadWhenInNodes=ESnt100/*, \
ESnt1/ESnd1, ESnt1/ESnd2, \
A1nt1/A1nd1, A1nt1/A1nd2, A1nt2/A1nd1 

A comma (,) is used as the separator. With this configuration, SCR only loads LPorts, PPorts and PVC/CCs in network "ESnt100" and nodes " ESnt1/ESnd1", "ESnt1/ESnd2", "A1nt1/A1nd1", "A1nt1/A1nd2", "A1nt2/A1nd1"

If the property discovery.se.loadWhenInNodes is absent from $CCP_CONFIG/SOdiscovery.properties, it loads whole network(s) SEs into memory This is the previous behavior.
