Step 1 Log into the ONS 15454 SDH node where you want to change the settings. See the "DLP-D60 Log into CTC" task on page 3-23. If you are already logged in, continue with Step 2.

Step 2 Complete the "NTP-D108 Back Up the Database" procedure on page 15-8.

Step 3 As needed, complete the "DLP-D157 Change the Node Timing Source" task.

Step 4 If you need to change any internal timing settings, follow the "DLP-D70 Set Up Internal Timing" task on page 4-24 for the settings you need to modify.


Caution Internal timing is Stratum 3 and not intended for permanent use. All ONS 15454 SDHs should be timed to a Stratum 2 or better primary reference source.

Step 5 If you need to verify timing after removing a node from an MS-SPRing or SNCP ring, see the "DLP-D195 Verify Timing in a Reduced Ring" task on page 14-13.

Step 6 Complete the "NTP-D108 Back Up the Database" procedure on page 15-8.

Stop. You have completed this procedure.

Caution The following procedure may be service affecting and should be performed during a scheduled maintenance window.


Step 1 In node view, click the Provisioning > Timing tabs.

Step 2 In the General Timing section, change any of the following information:

Timing Mode


Note Because mixed timing can cause timing loops, Cisco does not recommend using the Mixed Timing option. Use this mode with care.


SSM Message Set

Quality of RES

Revertive

Reversion Time

See the "DLP-D69 Set Up External or Line Timing" task on page 4-21 for field descriptions.

Step 3 In the BITS Facilities section, you can change the following information:


Note The BITS Facilities section sets the parameters for your BITS1 and BITS2 timing references. Many of these settings are determined by the timing source manufacturer. If equipment is timed through BITS Out, you can set timing parameters to meet the requirements of the equipment.


State

Coding

Framing

Sync Messaging

AIS Threshold

LBO

Step 4 Under Reference Lists, you can change the following information:


Note Reference lists define up to three timing references for the node and up to six BITS Out references. BITS Out references define the timing references used by equipment that can be attached to the node's BITS pins on the MIC-C/T/P. 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.


NE Reference

BITS 1 Out/BITS 2 Out

Step 5 Click Apply. Confirm that the changes appear.


Note If the changes do not appear, repeat the task. Refer to the Cisco ONS 15454 SDH Reference Manual for information about timing.


Step 6 Return to your originating procedure (NTP).

Step 2 Select a trap in Trap Destinations dialog box.

For a description of SNMP traps, see the Cisco ONS 15454 SDH Reference Manual.

Step 3 Type the SNMP community name in the Community Name field.


Note The community name is a form of authentication and access control. The community name assigned to the ONS 15454 SDH is case-sensitive and must match the community name of the network management system.



Note The default UDP port for SNMP is 162.


Step 4 Set the Trap Version field for either SNMPv1 or SNMPv2.

Refer to your NMS documentation to determine whether to use SNMP v1 or v2.

Step 5 Set your maximum traps per second in the Max Traps per Second field.


Note The Max Traps per Second is the maximum number of traps per second that will be sent to the SNMP manager. If the field is set to 0, there is no maximum and all traps are sent.


Step 6 If you want to allow the ONS 15454 SDH SNMP agent to accept SNMP SET requests on certain MIBs, check the Allow SNMP Sets check box. If the box is not checked, SET requests are rejected.

Step 7 Click Apply.

Step 8 SNMP settings are now configured. To view SNMP information for each node, highlight the node IP address in the Trap Destinations area of the Trap Destinations screen. Confirm that the changes appear.
