Step 1 From card, node, or network view, click the Conditions tab.

Step 2 Click Retrieve (Figure 18-2).

The Retrieve button requests the current set of fault conditions from the node, card, or network. The window is not updated when events change on the node. You must click Retrieve to see any changes.

Figure 18-2 Node View Conditions Window

Conditions include all fault conditions raised on the node, whether or not they are reported.


Note Alarms can be unreported when they are filtered out of the display. See the "DLP-D227 Disable Alarm Filtering" task on page 19-18 for information.


Events that are reported as Major (MJ), Minor (MN), or Critical (CR) severities are alarms. Events that are reported as Not Alarmed (NA) are conditions. Conditions that are not reported at all are marked NR in the Conditions window severity column.

Conditions that have a default severity of CR, MJ, MN, or NA but are not reported due to exclusion or suppression are shown as NR in the Conditions window.

Current conditions are shown with the severity chosen in the alarm profile, if used. For more information about alarm profiles, see the "NTP-D71 Create, Download, and Assign Alarm Severity Profiles" procedure on page 7-6.


Note When a port is placed in the Locked-enabled,maintenance service state, it raises an Alarms Suppressed for Maintenance (AS-MT) condition. For information about alarm and condition troubleshooting, refer to the Cisco ONS 15454 SDH Troubleshooting Guide.



Note When a port is placed in the Unlocked-disabled,automaticInService service state but is not connected to a valid signal, it generates a loss of signal (LOS) alarm.


Step 3 If you want to apply exclusion rules, check the Exclude Same Root Cause check box at the node or network view, but do not check the Exclude Same Root Cause check box in card view.

An exclusion rule eliminates all lower-level alarms or conditions that originate from the same cause. For example, a fiber break might cause an LOS alarm, an alarm indication signal (AIS) condition, and a signal failure (SF) condition. If you check the Exclude Same Root Cause check box, only the LOS alarm will appear. According to IEEE, exclusion rules apply to a query of "all conditions from a node."

Note To monitor the J1 path on STM-N ports, the circuit endpoints must be transmitting VC4 J1 and not VC3 J1.



Step 1 From the View menu, choose Go to Other Node. In the Select Node dialog box, choose the node where path trace was provisioned on the circuit source and destination ports.

Step 2 Click Circuits.

Step 3 Choose the VC4 circuit that has path trace provisioned on the source and destination ports, then click Edit.

Step 4 In the Edit Circuit window, click the Show Detailed Map check box at the bottom of the window. A detailed circuit graphic showing source and destination ports appears.

Step 5 On the detailed circuit map, right-click the circuit STM-N port (the square on the left or right of the source node icon) and choose Edit Path Trace from the shortcut menu.


Note The STM-N port must be on a receive-only card listed in Table 19-3 on page 19-47. If not, the Edit Path Trace menu item does not appear.


Step 6 In the Circuit Path Trace window, enable the path trace expected string by choosing Auto or Manual from the Path Trace Mode drop-down list:

Auto—Uses the first string received from the port at the other path trace end as the current expected string. An alarm is raised when a string that differs from the baseline is received. For STM-N ports, Auto is recommended because Manual mode requires you to trace the circuit on the Edit Circuit window to determine whether the port is the source or destination path.

Manual—Uses the Current Expected String field as the baseline string. An alarm is raised when a string that differs from the Current Expected String is received.


Note It is not necessary to set the format (16 or 64 bytes) for the expected string; the path trace process automatically determines the format.


Step 7 If you set the Path Trace Mode field to Manual, enter the string that the STM-N port should receive in the New Expected String field. To do this, trace the circuit path on the detailed circuit window to determine whether the port is in the circuit source or destination path, then set the New Expected String to the string transmitted by the circuit source or destination. If you set the Path Trace Mode field to Auto, skip this step.

Step 8 Click Apply, then click Close.

Step 9 Return to your originating procedure (NTP).

a. Right-click the MS-SPRing east port where you want to clear the protection switch and choose Set East Protection Operation. Ports with a Force switch applied are marked with an F.

b. In the Set East Protection Operation dialog box, choose CLEAR from the drop-down list. Click OK.

c. In the Confirm MS-SPRing Operation dialog box, click Yes.

On the MS-SPRing network graphic, a green and a purple span line connects each node. This is the normal display for MS-SPRings when protection operations are not invoked.

Step 6 From the File menu, choose Close.

Step 7 Return to your originating procedure (NTP).


DLP-D195 Verify Timing in a Reduced Ring

Purpose

This task verifies timing in the ring where you removed a node.

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

Step 2 Observe the Timing Mode field to see the type of timing (Line, External, Mixed) that has been set for that node.

Step 3 Scroll down to the Reference List and observe the NE Reference fields to see the timing references provisioned for that node.

Step 4 If the removed node was the only building integrated timing supply (BITS) timing source, perform the following:

a. Contact your synchronization coordinator or appropriate personnel before continuing with this procedure.

b. Look for another node on the ring that can be used as a BITS source and set that node's Timing Mode to External. Choose that node as the primary timing source for all other nodes in the ring. See the "DLP-D157 Change the Node Timing Source" task.

c. If no node in the reduced ring can be used as a BITS source, choose one node to be your internal timing source. Set that node's Timing Mode to External, set the BITS-1 and BITS-2 BITS In State to OOS, and set the NE Reference to Internal. Then, choose line timing for all other nodes in the ring. This forces the first node to be their primary timing source. (See the "DLP-D157 Change the Node Timing Source" task.)


Note This type of timing conforms to SETS requirements and is not considered optimal.


Step 5 If the removed node was not the only BITS timing source, provision the adjacent nodes to line timing using SDH links (east and west) as timing sources, traceable to the node with external BITS timing. See the "NTP-D28 Set Up Timing" procedure on page 4-9.

Step 6 Return to your originating procedure (NTP).


DLP-D196 Delete an MS-SPRing from a Single Node

Purpose

This task deletes an MS-SPRing from a node after you remove the node from an MS-SPRing.

Step 1 In node view, display the node that was removed from the MS-SPRing:

If the node that was removed is connected to the same LAN as your computer, from the File menu, choose Add Node, then enter the node name or IP address.

If the node that was removed is not connected to the same LAN as your computer, you must connect to the node using a direct connection. See Chapter 3, "Connect the PC and Log into the GUI," for procedures.

Step 2 From node view, click the Provisioning > MS-SPRing tabs.

Step 3 Highlight the ring and click Delete.

Step 4 In the Suggestion dialog box, click OK.

Step 5 In the confirmation message, confirm that this is the ring you want to delete. If so, click Yes.

Step 6 Return to your originating procedure (NTP).
