NTP-G76 Verify Optical Span Loss Using CTC

Purpose

This procedure verifies the span loss between two DWDM nodes using Cisco Transport Controller (CTC). Perform this procedure after a node or network modification has occurred and you want to verify that the span loss between the nodes has not changed.

Tools/Equipment

None

Prerequisite Procedures

  • In the Cisco ONS 15454 DWDM Configuration Guide:

    • All procedures in the chapter "Turn Up a Node".

    • If an OSC exists on the link, create an OSC termination link by completing the "NTP-G38 Provision OSC Terminations" procedure in the chapter "Turn Up a Node".

    • If an OSC is not present on the link, create OTS provisionable patchcord terminations on line ports by completing the "NTP-G184 Create a Provisionable Patchcord" procedure in the chapter "Create Optical Channel Circuits and Provisionable Patchcords", as required.

    • Ensure at least one channel is activated before performing this procedure on Raman links.

  • "DLP-G46 Log into CTC" task in the "Connect the PC and Log into the GUI" document.

Required/As Needed

As needed

Onsite/Remote

Onsite or remote

Security Level

Superuser only


Note


Using CTC to verify span loss is faster than a span loss measurement using an optical time domain reflectometer (OTDR) and does not require fibers to be removed. However, the resolution is not as precise as an OTDR measurement.



Note


For a PSM card in line (or path) protection configuration, the span loss is measured for both the working and protect paths.


SUMMARY STEPS

    1.    In node view (single-shelf mode) or multishelf view (multishelf mode), click the Provisioning > Comm Channels > OSC tabs. Verify that two OSC terminations are provisioned and have an In-Service and Normal (IS-NR) (ANSI) or Unlocked-enabled (ETSI) service state.

    2.    Click the Maintenance > DWDM > WDM Span Check tabs.

    3.    Click Retrieve Span Loss Values to retrieve the latest span loss data.

    4.    View the following information:


DETAILED STEPS
    Step 1   In node view (single-shelf mode) or multishelf view (multishelf mode), click the Provisioning > Comm Channels > OSC tabs. Verify that two OSC terminations are provisioned and have an In-Service and Normal (IS-NR) (ANSI) or Unlocked-enabled (ETSI) service state.
    Note   

    If a DCN extension is provisioned, verify that two provisionable patchcords are provisioned between the nodes

    Step 2   Click the Maintenance > DWDM > WDM Span Check tabs.
    Step 3   Click Retrieve Span Loss Values to retrieve the latest span loss data.
    Step 4   View the following information:
    • Side—Shows the side to which the span loss values apply, from A through H.

    • Measured By—Shows the different methods used to measure span loss:

      • OSC—The OSC is used to measure the span loss

      • CHANNEL—The provisioned circuits are used to measure the span loss.

        Note   

        CTC automatically chooses the method (OSC or CHANNEL) to use for span loss measurement depending on which method is available and more accurate .

      • Current Span Measure with Raman—Estimated span loss with Raman pump turned ON.

      • Wizard Span Measure with Raman Off—Span loss with Raman pump turned OFF, during Raman installation.

      • Last Span Measure with Raman Off—Span loss after a fiber cut restoration procedure.

      Note   

      The first span loss measurements must be triggered by the user and subsequent measurements are performed automatically on an hourly basis.

    • Min Expected Span Loss (dB)—Shows the expected minimum span loss (in dB). You can change the minimum by entering a new value in the field.

    • Max Expected Span Loss (dB)—Shows the expected maximum span loss (in dB). You can change the maximum by entering a new value in the field.

      Note   

      The minimum and maximum expected span loss values are calculated by Cisco TransportPlanner and imported to the node when you perform the "NTP-G143 Import the Cisco TransportPlanner NE Update Configuration File" task in the chapter, "Turn Up a Node" in the Cisco ONS 15454 DWDM Configuration Guide.

    • Meas. Span Loss (dB)—Shows the measured span loss (in dB).

    • Resolution (dB)—Shows the accuracy of the span loss measurement (in dB).

    If the measured span loss is not between the minimum and maximum expected span loss, which includes a measurement tolerance that is compliant with the Resolution value, the Span Loss Out of Range alarm is raised. Refer to the Cisco ONS 15454 DWDM Troubleshooting Guide for instructions on how to clear this alarm.

    Stop. You have completed this procedure.

    Note


    An APC domain is a set of nodes that are regulated by the same instance of APC at the network level. An APC domain optically identifies a network portion that can be independently regulated. Every domain is terminated by two node sides residing on a terminal node, ROADM node, hub node, line termination meshed node, or an XC termination meshed node. For more information about APC, refer to the "Automatic Power Control" section in the Network Reference chapter in the Cisco ONS 15454 DWDM Configuration Guide.

                Step 2   On the Side Power Monitoring tab, view the bar charts of the input and output spectrum on each optical side of the node.

                The IN bar graph displays the optical spectrum at the input port (LINE-RX) of the side in the direction from the fiber to the node provided the OCM functionality is available on this port else the graph displays the aggregate signal spectral distribution on the first port in the signal flow (indicated in the title of the bar chart) that is downstream of the LINE-RX port where an OCM measurement is available (For example, in node using a booster and 40-SMR1-C card, the measurement is done on the EXP port of the 40-SMR1-C card).

                The OUT bar graph displays the optical spectrum at the output port (LINE-TX) of the side in the direction from the node to the fiber provided the OCM functionality is available on this port else the graph displays the aggregate signal spectral distribution on the first port (indicated in the title of the bar chart) that is upstream of the LINE-TX port where an OCM measurement is available.

                Note   

                Depending on the side layout, the LINE-TX port (output) and the LINE-RX port (input) of the card facing the fiber cannot measure the optical spectrum in a reliable manner if the OCM functionality is not available on these ports.

                Note   

                The DWDM cards supporting this feature are designed to handle minor differences in output power. The output power does not need to be exactly the same for all wavelengths.

                Step 3   If needed, click Refresh to update the display.

                Stop. You have completed this procedure.

                          Step 1   In node view (single-shelf mode) or multishelf view (multishelf mode), click the Provisioning > OSI > TARP > Config tabs.
                          Step 2   Provision the following parameters, as needed:
                          • TARP PDUs L1 Propagation—If checked (default), TARP Type 1 PDUs that are received by the node and are not excluded by the LDB are propagated to other NEs within the Level 1 OSI area. (Type 1 PDUs request a protocol address that matches a target identifier [TID] within a Level 1 routing area.) The propagation does not occur if the NE is the target of the Type 1 PDU, and PDUs are not propagated to the NE from which the PDU was received

                            Note   

                            The TARP PDUs L1 Propagation parameter is not used when the Node Routing Area (Provisioning > OSI > Main Setup tab) is set to End System.

                          • TARP PDUs L2 Propagation—If checked (default), TARP Type 2 PDUs received by the node that are not excluded by the LDB are propagated to other NEs within the Level 2 OSI areas. (Type 2 PDUs request a protocol address that matches a TID within a Level 2 routing area.) The propagation does not occur if the NE is the target of the Type 2 PDU, and PDUs are not propagated to the NE from which the PDU was received.

                            Note   

                            The TARP PDUs L2 Propagation parameter is only used when the Node Routing Area is provisioned to Intermediate System Level 1/Level 2

                          • TARP PDUs Origination—If checked (default), the node performs all TARP origination functions including:

                            • TID to Network Service Access Point (NSAP) resolution requests (originate TARP Type 1 and Type 2 PDUs)

                            • NSAP to TID requests (originate Type 5 PDUs)

                            • TARP address changes (originate Type 4 PDUs)

                            Note   

                            TARP Echo and NSAP to TID are not supported.

                          • TARP Data Cache—If checked (default), the node maintains a TARP data cache (TDC). The TDC is a database of TID-to-NSAP pairs created from TARP Type 3 PDUs that are received by the node and modified by TARP Type 4 PDUs (TID-to-NSAP updates or corrections). TARP 3 PDUs are responses to Type 1 and Type 2 PDUs. The TDC can also be populated with static entries entered on the TARP > Static TDC tab.

                            Note   

                            This parameter is only used when the TARP PDUs Origination parameter is enabled.

                          • L2 TARP Data Cache—If checked (default), the TIDs and NSAPs of NEs originating Type 2 requests are added to the TDC before the node propagates the requests to other NEs.

                            Note   

                            The L2 TARP Data Cache parameter is designed for Intermediate System Level 1/Level 2 nodes that are connected to other Intermediate System Level 1/Level 2 nodes. Enabling the parameter for Intermediate System Level 1 nodes is not recommended.

                          • LDB—If checked (default), enables the TARP loop detection buffer. The LDB prevents TARP PDUs from being sent more than once on the same subnet.

                            Note   

                            The LDB parameter is not used if the Node Routing Mode is provisioned to End System or if the TARP PDUs L1 Propagation parameter is not enabled.

                          • LAN TARP Storm Suppression—If checked (default), enables TARP storm suppression. This function prevents redundant TARP PDUs from being unnecessarily propagated across the LAN network.

                          • Send Type 4 PDU on Startup—If checked, a TARP Type 4 PDU is originated during the initial ONS 15454 startup. Type 4 PDUs indicate that a TID or NSAP change has occurred at the NE. (The default setting is not enabled.)

                          • Type 4 PDU Delay—Sets the amount of time that will pass before the Type 4 PDU is generated when Send Type 4 PDU on Startup is enabled. 60 seconds is the default. The range is 0 to 255 seconds.

                            Note   

                            The Send Type 4 PDU on Startup and Type 4 PDU Delay parameters are not used if the TARP PDUs Origination parameter is not enabled.

                          • LDB Entry—Sets the TARP loop detection buffer timer. The LDB buffer time is assigned to each LDB entry for which the TARP sequence number (tar-seq) is zero. The default is 5 minutes. The range is 1 to 10 minutes.

                          • LDB Flush—Sets the frequency period for flushing the LDB. The default is 5 minutes. The range is 0 to 1440 minutes.

                          • T1—Sets the amount of time to wait for a response to a Type 1 PDU. Type 1 PDUs seek a specific NE TID within an OSI Level 1 area. The default is 15 seconds. The range is 0 to 3600 seconds.

                          • T2—Sets the amount of time to wait for a response to a Type 2 PDU. TARP Type 2 PDUs seek a specific NE TID value within OSI Level 1 and Level 2 areas. The default is 25 seconds. The range is 0 to 3600 seconds.

                          • T3—Sets the amount of time to wait for an address resolution request. The default is 40 seconds. The range is 0 to 3600 seconds.

                          • T4—Sets the amount of time to wait for an error recovery. This timer begins after the T2 timer expires without finding the requested NE TID. The default is 20 seconds. The range is 0 to 3600 seconds.

                          Note   

                          The T1, T2, and T4 timers are not used if TARP PDUs Origination is not enabled.

                                Do not complete this procedure until you confirm the role of the node within the network. It will be either an ES, IS Level 1, or IS Level 1/Level 2. This decision must be carefully considered. For additional information about OSI provisioning, refer to the "Management Network Connectivity" chapter of the Cisco ONS 15454 DWDM Configuration Guide.



                                Caution


                                Link state PDU (LSP) buffers must be the same at all NEs within the network, or loss of visibility could occur. Do not modify the LSP buffers unless you are sure that all NEs within the OSI have the same buffer size.



                                Caution


                                LSP buffer sizes cannot be greater than the LAP-D MTU size within the OSI area.


                                SUMMARY STEPS

                                DETAILED STEPS
                                  Step 1   Verify the following:
                                  • All L1/L2 virtual routers on the NE must reside in the same area. This means that all neighboring virtual routers must have at least one common area address.

                                  • For OSI L1/L2 to ES routing mode changes, only one L1/L2 virtual router and no more than one subnet can be configured.

                                  • For OSI L1 to ES routing mode changes, only one L1 virtual router and no more than one subnet can be configured.

                                  Step 2   In node view (single-shelf mode) or multishelf view (multishelf mode), click the Provisioning > OSI > Main Setup tabs.
                                  Step 3   Choose one of the following node routing modes:
                                  • End System—The ONS 15454 performs OSI IS functions. It communicates with IS and ES nodes that reside within its OSI area. It depends upon an IS L1/L2 node to communicate with IS and ES nodes that reside outside its OSI area.

                                  • Intermediate System Level 1—The ONS 15454 performs IS functions. It communicates with IS and ES nodes that reside within its OSI area. It does not communicate with IS nodes that reside in other OSI areas except through an IS L1/L2 node residing in its own area

                                  • Intermediate System Level 1/Level 2—The ONS 15454 performs IS functions. It communicates with IS and ES nodes that reside within its OSI area. It also communicates with IS L1/L2 nodes that reside in other OSI areas. Before choosing this option, verify the following:

                                    • The node is connected to another IS Level 1/Level 2 node that resides in a different OSI area.

                                    • The node is connected to all nodes within its area that are provisioned as IS L1/L2.

                                  Note   

                                  Changing a routing mode should be carefully considered. Additional information about OSI ESs and ISs and the ES-IS and IS-IS protocols are provided in the "Management Network Connectivity" chapter of the Cisco ONS 15454 DWDM Configuration Guide.

                                  Step 4   Although Cisco does not recommend changing the LSP buffer sizes, you can adjust the buffers in the following fields:
                                  • L1 LSP Buffer Size—Adjusts the Level 1 link state PDU buffer size.

                                  • L2 LSP Buffer Size—Adjusts the Level 2 link state PDU buffer size.

                                        • Tunnel Type-Edit the tunnel type:

                                          • Cisco—Creates the proprietary Cisco IP tunnel. Cisco IP tunnels add the CLNS header to the IP packets.

                                          • GRE—Creates a generic routing encapsulation (GRE). GRE tunnels add the CLNS header and a GRE header to the IP packets.

                                            The Cisco proprietary tunnel is slightly more efficient than the GRE tunnel because it does not add the GRE header to each IP packet. The two tunnel types are not compatible. Most Cisco routers support the Cisco IP tunnel, while only a few support both GRE and Cisco IP tunnels. You generally should create Cisco IP tunnels if you are tunneling between two Cisco routers or between a Cisco router and an ONS node.

                                            Caution   

                                            Always verify that the IP-over-CLNS tunnel type you choose is supported by the equipment at the other end of the tunnel.

                                        • IP Address—Enter the IP address of the IP-over-CLNS tunnel destination.

                                        • IP Mask—Enter the IP address subnet mask of the IP-over-CLNS destination.

                                        • OSPF Metric—Enter the Open Shortest Path First (OSPF) metric for sending packets across the IP-over-CLNS tunnel. The OSPF metric, or cost, is used by OSPF routers to calculate the shortest path. The default is 110. Normally, it is not changed unless you are creating multiple tunnel routes and want to prioritize routing by assigning different metrics.

                                        • NSAP Address—Enter the destination NE or OSI router NSAP address.

                                            Caution


                                            Changing the node IP address, subnet mask, or IIOP listener port causes the TCC2/TCC2P/TCC3/TNC/TNCE/TSC/TSCE cards to reboot. If Ethernet circuits using Spanning Tree Protocol (STP) originate or terminate on E-Series Ethernet cards installed in the node, circuit traffic will be lost for several minutes while the spanning trees reconverge. Other circuits are not affected by TCC2/TCC2P/TCC3/TNC/TNCE/TSC/TSCE reboots.



                                            Note


                                            If the node contains TCC2P/TCC3/TNC/TNCE/TSC/TSCE cards and is in default (repeater) mode, the node IP address refers to the TCC2P/TCC3/TNC/TNCE/TSC/TSCE front-access TCP/IP (LAN) port as well as the backplane LAN port. If the node is in secure mode, this task only changes the front-access port IP address only. If the node is in secure mode and has been locked, the IP address cannot be changed unless the lock is removed by Cisco Technical Support.

                                              If you changed a network field that will cause the node to reboot, such as the IP address, or subnet mask, the Change Network Configuration confirmation dialog box appears. If you changed a gateway setting, a confirmation appropriate to the gateway field appears.

                                              Step 4   If a confirmation dialog box appears, click Yes.

                                              If you changed an IP address, subnet mask length, TCC2/TCC2P/TCC3/TNC/TNCE/TSC/TSCE cards reboot, one at a time. A TCC2/TCC2P/TCC3/TNC/TNCE/TSC/TSCE card reboot causes a temporary loss of connectivity to the node, but traffic is unaffected.

                                              Step 5   Confirm that the changes appear on the Provisioning > Network > General tabs. If not, refer to the chapter, "General Troubleshooting" in the Cisco ONS 15454 DWDM Troubleshooting Guide.

                                              Purpose

                                              This task locks the secure mode. When secure mode is locked, two IP addresses must always be provisioned for the node. The first address is provisioned for the TCC2P/TCC3/TNC/TNCE/TSC/TSCE LAN (TCP/IP) port. The second address is provisioned for the backplane LAN port (ONS 15454), EMS RJ-45 port on the ECU (ONS 15454 M6), EMS RJ-45 port on the power module (ONS 15454 M2).

                                              Tools/Equipment

                                              TCC2P/TCC3/TNC/TNCE/TSC/TSCE cards must be installed.

                                                    • Allow Configuration—Displays the backplane IP address on the LCD and allows it to be changed using the LCD buttons.

                                                    • Display only—Displays the backplane IP address on the LCD but does not allow it to be changed using the LCD buttons.

                                                    • Suppress Display—Suppresses the display of the IP address on the LCD.

                                                  • Suppress CTC IP Address—If checked, suppresses the IP address from display on the Data Comm subtab, CTC node view or multishelf view information area, and other locations.

                                                  • IPv6 Configuration—Allows provisioning of IPv6 addresses. After you provision an IPv6 address, you can access the device using the IPv6 address. Configure these settings only if you want to enable IPv6 on the node. IPv6 cannot be configured using the LCD push buttons.

                                                  • Enable IPv6—Select this check box to assign an IPv6 address to the node. The IPv6 Address, Prefix Length, and IPv6 Default Router fields are enabled only if this check box is selected. The check box is disabled by default.

                                                    Note   

                                                    The Enable SOCKS Proxy on Port check box is enabled when you enable IPv6 and can be disabled only when IPv6 is disabled.

                                                  • IPv6 Address—Enter the IPv6 address that you want to assign to the node. This IP address is the global unicast IPv6 address. This field is disabled if the Enable IPv6 check box is not selected.

                                                  • Prefix Length-Enter the prefix length of the IPv6 address. This field is disabled if the Enable IPv6 check box is not selected.

                                                  • IP6 Default Router—Enter the IPv6 address of the default router of the IPv6 NE. This is optional. This field is disabled if the Enable IPv6 check box is not selected.

                                                    Note   

                                                    ONS platforms use NAT-PT internally to support native IPv6. NAT-PT uses the IPv4 address range 128.x.x.x for packet translation. Do not use this address range when you enable the IPv6 feature.

                                                  Caution   

                                                  Ensure that the IPv6 address assigned to the node is unique in the network. Duplicate IP addresses in the same network causes loss of visibility.

                                                  Step 3   Click Apply.

                                                  If you changed the IP address, subnet mask, or default router, the node will reboot. This will take 5 to 10 minutes.

                                                    Step 4   On the Node IP Address page, choose the address you want to assign to the node:
                                                    • Backplane Ethernet Port—Assigns the backplane IP address as the node IP address.

                                                    • TCC Ethernet Port—Assigns the TCC2P/TCC3/TNC/TNCE/TSC/TSCE port IP address as the node IP address.

                                                    • New IP Address—Allows you to define a new IP address. If you choose this option, enter the new IP address, subnet mask, and default router IP address.

                                                    Step 5   Click Next.
                                                    Step 6   On the SOCKS Proxy Server Settings page, choose one of the following:
                                                    • External Network Element (ENE)—If selected, SOCKS proxy will be disabled by default, and the CTC computer is only visible to the ONS 15454 where the CTC computer is connected. The computer is not visible to the secure mode data communications channel (DCC)-connected nodes. Firewall is enabled, which means that the node prevents IP traffic from being routed between the DCC and the LAN port.

                                                    • Gateway Network Element (GNE)—If selected, the CTC computer is visible to other DCC-connected nodes and SOCKS proxy remains enabled. However, the node prevents IP traffic from being routed between the DCC and the LAN port.

                                                    • Proxy-only—If selected, the ONS 15454 responds to CTC requests with a list of DCC-connected nodes within the firewall for which the node serves as a proxy. The CTC computer is visible to other DCC-connected nodes. The node does not prevent traffic from being routed between the DCC and LAN port.

                                                    Step 7   Click Finish.

                                                    Within the next 30 to 40 seconds, the TCC2P/TCC3/TNC/TNCE/TSC/TSCE cards reboot. CTC switches to network view, and the CTC Alerts dialog box appears. In network view, the node changes to gray and a DISCONNECTED condition appears.

                                                    Step 8   In the CTC Alerts dialog box, click Close. Wait for the reboot to finish. (This might take several minutes.)

                                                                                                              If the channel is coming from a 32DMX-O, the optical power can be adjusted in CTC by modifying the value of the internal per-channel variable optical attenuator (VOA).

                                                                                                              Step 8   (Optional) The following verification steps might be needed for an intermediate node when a pass-through connection is converted:
                                                                                                              1. Verify that the received channels are at the specified power level. See the NTP-G76 Verify Optical Span Loss Using CTC for instructions.
                                                                                                              2. Verify that the added channels are equalized with the express channels within +/-1 dB.
                                                                                                              3. If the channels are not equalized with the express channels within +/-1 dB, check the attenuation of the VOAs.
                                                                                                              4. Check all the fiber adapters to minimize their insertion losses.

BITS Out references define the timing references used by equipment that can be attached to the node's BITS Out pins on the backplane. If you attach equipment to BITS Out pins, you normally attach it to a node with Line mode because equipment near the external timing reference can be directly wired to the reference.

                                                                                                                        • LAN access—Choose one of the following options to set the access paths to the node:

                                                                                                                          • No LAN Access—Allows access to the node only through DCC connections. Access through the TCC2/TCC2P/TCC3/TNC/TNCE/TSC/TSCE RJ-45 port and backplane is not permitted.

                                                                                                                          • Front only—Allows access through the TCC2/TCC2P/TCC3/TNC/TNCE/TSC/TSCE RJ-45 port. Access through the DCC and the backplane is not permitted.

                                                                                                                          • Backplane only—Allows access through DCC connections and the backplane. Access through the TCC2/TCC2P/TCC3/TNC/TNCE/TSC/TSCE RJ-45 port is not allowed.

                                                                                                                          • Front and Backplane—Allows access through DCC, TCC2/TCC2P/TCC3/TNC/TNCE/TSC/TSCE RJ-45 port, and backplane connections.

                                                                                                                        • Restore Timeout—Sets a time delay for enabling of front and backplane access when DCC connections are lost and "DCC only" is chosen in LAN Access. Front and backplane access is enabled after the restore timeout period has passed. Front and backplane access is disabled as soon as DCC connections are restored.

                                                                                                                        • Disable IPv4 access for IPv6 enabled ports—Select this option to disable IPv4 on ports which are IPv6 enabled. Before you select this option, ensure that IPv6 is enabled and the node is not in multishelf mode.

                                                                                                                        Step 3   In the Shell Access area, set the shell program used to access the node:
                                                                                                                        • Access State—Allows you to set the shell program access mode to Disable (disables shell access), Non-Secure, or Secure. Secure mode allows access to the node using the Secure Shell (SSH) program. SSH is a terminal-remote host Internet protocol that uses encrypted links.

                                                                                                                        • Telnet Port—Allows access to the node using the Telnet port. Telnet is the terminal-remote host Internet protocol developed for the Advanced Agency Research Project Network (ARPANET). Port 23 is the default.

                                                                                                                        • Enable Shell Password—If checked, enables the SSH password. To enable the shell password, check the box and click Apply.

                                                                                                                                        4.    Enter the shared secret in the Shared Secret field. A shared secret is a text string that serves as a password between a RADIUS client and RADIUS server.

                                                                                                                                        5.    Enter the RADIUS authentication port number in the Authentication Port field. The default port is 1812. If the node is an ENE, set the authentication port to a number within the range of 1860 to 1869.

                                                                                                                                        6.    Enter the RADIUS accounting port in the Accounting Port field. The default port is 1813. If the node is an ENE, set the accounting port to a number within the range of 1870 to 1879.

                                                                                                                                        7.    Click OK. The RADIUS server is added to the list of RADIUS authenticators.

                                                                                                                                        8.    Click Edit to make changes to an existing RADIUS server. You can change the IP address, the shared secret, the authentication port, and the accounting port.

                                                                                                                                        9.    Click Delete to delete the selected RADIUS server.

                                                                                                                                        10.    Select a server and click Move Up or Move Down to reorder that server in the list of RADIUS authenticators. The node requests authentication from the servers sequentially from top to bottom. If one server is unreachable, the node will request authentication from the next RADIUS server on the list.

                                                                                                                                        11.    Click the Enable RADIUS Authentication check box to activate remote-server authentication for the node.

                                                                                                                                        12.    Click the Enable RADIUS Accounting check box if you want to show RADIUS authentication information in the audit trail.

                                                                                                                                        13.    Click the Enable the Node as the Final Authenticator check box if you want the node to be the final authenticator. This means that if every RADIUS authenticator is unavailable, the node will authenticate the login rather than locking the user out.

                                                                                                                                        14.    Click Apply to save all changes or Reset to clear all changes.

                                                                                                                                        Step 1   In node view (single-shelf mode) or multishelf view (multishelf mode), click the Provisioning > Security > RADIUS Server tabs.
                                                                                                                                        Step 2   Click Create to add a RADIUS server to the list of authenticators. The Create RADIUS Server Entry dialog box appears.
                                                                                                                                        Step 3   Enter the RADIUS server IP address in the Node Address field. If the node is an end network element (ENE), enter the IP address of the gateway network element (GNE) in this field.

                                                                                                                                        The GNE passes authentication requests from the ENEs in its network to the RADIUS server, which grants authentication if the GNE is listed as a client on the server.

                                                                                                                                        Note   

                                                                                                                                        In ONS 15454 Software Release 9.1 and later, you can configure IPv6 addresses for RADIUS servers, in addition to IPv4 addresses.

                                                                                                                                        Caution   

                                                                                                                                        Because the ENE nodes use the GNE to pass authentication requests to the RADIUS server, you must add the ENEs to the RADIUS server individually for authentication. If you do not add the ENE node to a RADIUS server prior to activating RADIUS authentication, no user will be able to access the node. Refer to the User Guide for Cisco Secure ACS for Windows Server for more information about adding a node to a RADIUS server.

                                                                                                                                        For example, if there are 5 NEs namely, A, B, C, D, and E with A as GNE and others as ENE, the sequence must be as follows:

                                                                                                                                        1. Add all the 5 IPs (A, B, C, D, and E) in RADIUS Server.
                                                                                                                                        2. Enable RADIUS authentication on the nodes in the sequence: A, B, C, D, and E where A is GNE and others are ENE.

                                                                                                                                        In the above sequence, if CTC disconnects after enabling RADIUS on A, the user will still be able to access the ENEs even though RADIUS is not enabled on them. If the above sequence is reversed, the user will not be able to login to the ENE nodes if CTC disconnects.

                                                                                                                                        Step 4   Enter the shared secret in the Shared Secret field. A shared secret is a text string that serves as a password between a RADIUS client and RADIUS server.
                                                                                                                                        Step 5   Enter the RADIUS authentication port number in the Authentication Port field. The default port is 1812. If the node is an ENE, set the authentication port to a number within the range of 1860 to 1869.
                                                                                                                                        Step 6   Enter the RADIUS accounting port in the Accounting Port field. The default port is 1813. If the node is an ENE, set the accounting port to a number within the range of 1870 to 1879.
                                                                                                                                        Step 7   Click OK. The RADIUS server is added to the list of RADIUS authenticators.
                                                                                                                                        Note

                                                                                                                                        Step 8   Click Edit to make changes to an existing RADIUS server. You can change the IP address, the shared secret, the authentication port, and the accounting port.
                                                                                                                                        Step 9   Click Delete to delete the selected RADIUS server.
                                                                                                                                        Step 10   Select a server and click Move Up or Move Down to reorder that server in the list of RADIUS authenticators. The node requests authentication from the servers sequentially from top to bottom. If one server is unreachable, the node will request authentication from the next RADIUS server on the list.
                                                                                                                                        Step 11   Click the Enable RADIUS Authentication check box to activate remote-server authentication for the node.
                                                                                                                                        Step 12   Click the Enable RADIUS Accounting check box if you want to show RADIUS authentication information in the audit trail.
                                                                                                                                        Step 13   Click the Enable the Node as the Final Authenticator check box if you want the node to be the final authenticator. This means that if every RADIUS authenticator is unavailable, the node will authenticate the login rather than locking the user out.
                                                                                                                                        Step 14   Click Apply to save all changes or Reset to clear all changes.
                                                                                                                                        Step 15   Return to your originating procedure (NTP).

The community name assigned to the ONS 15454 is case-sensitive and must match the community name of the network management system (NMS).

                                                                                                                                                Step 4   If needed, modify the UDP port in the UDP Port field. The default UDP port for SNMP is 162.
