Upgrade, Add, and Remove Cards and Nodes


Note


The terms “Unidirectional Path Switched Ring” and “UPSR” may appear in Cisco literature. These terms do not refer to using Cisco ONS 15xxx products in a unidirectional path switched ring configuration. Rather, these terms, as well as “Path Protected Mesh Network” and “PPMN,” refer generally to Cisco's path protection feature, which may be used in any topological network configuration. Cisco does not recommend using its path protection feature in any particular topological network configuration.


This document provides procedures for adding and removing dense wavelength division multiplexing (DWDM) cards and nodes.

Limitations of USB Synchronization with TNC or TSC Cards

USB synchronization with TNC or TSC cards fails when the USB has the 9.8 package in either its active or protect volume and when the TNC or TSC card is inserted as a standalone card in the chassis.

Scenario 1: The USB has the 9.8 package in its active volume and any other package in its protect volume The TNC or TSC card having a package earlier than version 9.8, is loaded on the Cisco ONS 15454 M2 or Cisco ONS 15454 M6 chassis as a standalone card. The USB acts as the master and pushes the 9.8 package from its active volume on the TNC or TSC card. Despite several attempts, the package copy operation fails.

Scenario 2: The USB has any package earlier than version 9.8 in its active volume and the 9.8 package in its protect volume. The TNC or TSC card having a package earlier than version 9.8, is loaded on the ONS 15454 M2 or ONS 15454 M6 chassis as a standalone card. The USB acts as the master and pushes the package from its active volume on the TNC or TSC card. The card copies the package and resets. When the card boots up after reset, the USB pushes the 9.8 package from its protect volume on the TNC or TSC card. Despite several attempts, the package copy operation fails.

Workarounds:

  • For release 9.3 and later releases, use TNC-E or TSC-E cards.
  • For scenario 1, ensure that the TNC or TSC card has version 9.8 as the active package.
  • For scenario 2, ensure that the protect and the active volumes of USB are the same.

Procedure
    Step 1   Complete the "DLP-G46 Log into CTC" task in the "Connect the PC and Log into the GUI" document.
    Note   

    If you cannot log into Cisco Transport Controller (CTC) and you need to remove a card, remove the card as described in Step 6. After you log into CTC, troubleshoot the mismatched equipment alarm (MEA) with the Cisco ONS 15454 DWDM Troubleshooting Guide .

    Step 2   Click the Alarms tab.
    1. Verify that the alarm filter is not on. See the “DLP-G128 Disable Alarm Filtering” task in the Alarm and TCA Monitoring and Management document as necessary.
    2. Verify that no unexplained alarms appear on the network. If alarms appear, investigate and resolve them before continuing. Refer to the Cisco ONS 15454 DWDM Troubleshooting Guide for procedures.
    Step 3   If you are removing and replacing a card, go to Step 5.
    Step 4   If you are permanently removing a card, go to Step 11.
    Step 5   To remove and replace a card, complete the following tasks, as needed:
    • The circuits traversing through the card that needs to be replaced (for example, an amplifier) need to be protection switched. For instance, if the card you want to replace is an active transponder (TXP) or muxponder (MXP) in a Y-cable protection group, complete the “DLP-G179 Apply a Force Y-Cable or Splitter Protection Switch” task in the Manage the Node document to force traffic away from the TXP or MXP that you will remove. If the card you want to replace is the standby TXP or MXP in a Y-cable protection group, complete the “DLP-G182 Apply a Lockout” task in the Manage the Node document to prevent traffic from switching to the TXP or MXP that you will remove. See the Cisco ONS 15454 Procedure Guide or the Cisco ONS 15454 SDH Procedure Guide for other types of protection switching (path protection, BLSR, optical, and electrical).
    • If the card is a node timing reference, complete the “NTP-G112 Change the Node Timing Reference” task in the chapter “Maintain the Node” of the Cisco ONS 15454 DWDM Network Configuration Guide to change the timing reference to a card that will not be removed.
    • If the card is an OSCM or OSC-CSM with an optical service channel (OSC) or TXP, MXP, GE_XP, 10GE_XP, GE_XPE, 10GE_XPE, ADM-10G, and OTU2_XP cards with generic communications channel (GCC) termination, complete the “NTP-G85 Modify or Delete OSC Terminations, GCC Terminations, and Provisionable Patchcords” procedure in the Manage the Node document to delete the termination and recreate it on a card that will not be removed.
    Step 6   Physically remove the card:
    1. Disconnect any cables.
    2. Open the card latches/ejectors.
    3. Use the latches/ejectors to pull the card forward and away from the shelf.

              where:

              • <SRC> is the source access identifier from the Channel section in a two-way wavelength.
              • <DST> is the destination access identifier from the LINEWL section in a two-way wavelength
              • <CKTID> is the cross-connect ID. The default is Blank or None. CKTD is a string of ASCII characters. The maximum length is 48. If CKTID is empty or null, the CKTID field will not be displayed.
              • <CMDMDE> is the command execution mode. NORM mode is the default behavior for all commands but you can specify FRCD to force the system to override a state in which the command would normally be denied.

              For additional information, including valid command values, refer to the Cisco ONS SONET TL1 Command Guide or the Cisco ONS SDH TL1 Command Guide .

            4. Click Close to close the TL1 dialog box.
            Step 10   Remove the fibers from the target node, and reconnect the fibers to the adjacent nodes. Note that once the fibers are rerouted, the non-protected pass through circuits will go to OOS-PARTIAL (ANSI) or Locked-partial (ETSI) state.
            Step 11   Complete the following steps to update the ANS parameters at the adjacent nodes:
            1. Display an adjacent node in node view.

                                Step 1   Before you modify the CD value of the TDC-CC or TDC-FC card, run the APC. To run the APC, complete the “DLP-G430 Run Automatic Power Control” task in the Manage the Node document.

                                Step 2   Modify the CD value for the TDC-CC or TDC-FC Card. To modify the CD value, Complete the “DLP-G545 Modify the Chromatic Dispersion Value for the TDC-CC and TDC-FC Cards” task in the chapter “Change DWDM Card Settings” of the Cisco ONS 15454 DWDM Network Configuration Guide.
                                Note   

                                Do not change the compensation value directly in one instance. In order to avoid traffic drops and alarms, it is required to change the CD value in steps not too large. For example, if you want to change the CD value of a TDC-CC from -880 to -1320 ps/nm, do not change the CD value in a single step, but in a couple of steps. Change the CD value to an intermediate value of -1100 ps/nm and then to -1320 ps/nm. Change the CD value of the TDC-CC by steps no larger than 330 ps/nm and the CD value of the TDC-FC by steps no larger than 270 ps/nm. This approach of changing the CD value avoids misleading alarms and traffic drops.

                                Step 3   Run the APC. To run the APC, complete the “DLP-G430 Run Automatic Power Control” task in the Manage the Node document.
                                Step 4   If the APC correction skipped alarm appears, then force the APC correction. Do the following:
                                1. Click the alarmed port.
                                2. Click the Maintenance tab.
                                3. Click the Force APC correction button.
                                Step 5   Repeat Step 2 and Step 4 until the CD target value is set.
                                Step 6   Return to your originating procedure (NTP).
