Change Node Settings


This chapter explains how to modify node provisioning for the Cisco ONS 15454. To provision a new node, see Chapter 4, "Turn Up Node." To change default network element settings and to view a list of those settings, refer to the Cisco ONS 15454 Release 4.6 Network Element Defaults document.


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.


Before You Begin

Before performing the following procedures, investigate all alarms and clear any trouble conditions. Refer to the Cisco ONS 15454 Troubleshooting Guide as necessary.

Note Additional ONS 15454 networking information and procedures, including IP addressing examples, static route scenarios, Open Shortest Path First (OSPF) protocol, and routing information protocol options are provided in the IP Networking section of the Cisco ONS 15454 Reference Manual.



Step 1 Complete the "DLP-A60 Log into CTC" task. If you are already logged in, continue with Step 2.

Step 2 Complete the "NTP-A108 Back Up the Database" procedure on page 17-7.

Step 3 Perform any of the following tasks as needed:

Step 4 Complete the "NTP-A108 Back Up the Database" procedure on page 17-7.

Stop. You have completed this procedure.


DLP-A266 Change IP Settings

Purpose

This task changes the IP address, subnet mask, default router, DHCP access, firewall IIOP listener port, LCD IP display, and proxy server settings.

Caution Changing the node IP address, subnet mask, or IIOP listener port causes the TCC2s to reboot. If Ethernet circuits using spanning tree protocol 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 reboots.


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

Step 2 Change any of the following:

IP Address

Suppress CTC IP Display

LCD IP Setting

Default Router

Forward DHCP Request To

MAC Address

Net/Subnet Mask Length

TCC CORBA (IIOP) Listener Port

Gateway Settings

See the "DLP-A249 Provision IP Settings" task on page 4-10 for detailed field descriptions.

Step 3 Click Apply.

If you changed a network field that will cause the node to reboot, such as the IP address, subnet mask or TCC CORBA Listener Port, 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, or TCC CORBA (IIOP) Listener Port, both ONS 15454 TCC2 cards will reboot, one at a time. A TCC2 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 tab. If the changes do not appear, repeat the task. Refer to the Cisco ONS 15454 Troubleshooting Guide as necessary.

Step 6 Return to your originating procedure (NTP).

Caution DWDM settings are normally not changed at the individual node level. Any change to a DWDM node setting usually requires recalculation of power and attenuation levels at other nodes on the DWDM network. Do not change a DWDM node setting unless you are prepared to modify the settings of other DWDM nodes on the network.


Step 1 Complete the "DLP-A60 Log into CTC" task. If you are already logged in, continue with Step 2.

Step 2 Perform one of the following tasks as appropriate:

A408 Modify DWDM Hub Node Settings.

A409 Modify DWDM Terminal Node Settings.

A410 Modify DWDM OADM Node Settings.

A411 Modify DWDM Line Node Settings.

Step 3 Click the Connections tab, then click Calculate Connections.

Step 4 Verify that every connection matches the connections specified by the Cisco MetroPlanner design plan. If a connection is not correct:

a. Delete the connection. See the "DLP-A405 Delete a DWDM Connection" task.

b. Uninstall the fibers from the incorrect slot/unit/port.

c. Connect the fiber to the correct slot/unit/port.

d. Create a new connection. See the "DLP-A406 Create a DWDM Connection" task.

Step 5 Click the Port Status tab. Click Launch ANS.

ANS (Automatic Node Setup) automatically calculates variable optical attenuators (VOAs) set-points to match the expected channel profile at the amplifier input port.

Stop. You have completed this procedure.

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 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 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; if not repeat the task.

Step 9 Return to your originating procedure (NTP).
