Alarm Troubleshooting



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 chapter gives a description, severity, and troubleshooting procedure for each commonly encountered Cisco ONS 15454 SDH alarm and condition. Tables 2-1 through 2-5 provide lists of ONS 15454 SDH alarms organized by severity. Table 2-6 provides a list of alarms organized alphabetically. Table 2-7 gives definitions of all ONS 15454 SDH alarm logical objects, which are the basis of the alarm profile list in Table 2-8.

An alarm's troubleshooting procedure applies to the Cisco Transport Controller (CTC) version of that alarm. If the troubleshooting procedure does not clear the alarm, log into the Technical Support Website at http://www.cisco.com/techsupport for more information or log into http://www.cisco.com/warp/public/687/Directory/DirTAC.shtml to obtain a directory of toll-free Technical Support numbers for your country.

More information about alarm profile information modification and downloads is located in the Cisco ONS 15454 SDH Procedure Guide Chapter 7, "Manage Alarms."

2.1  Alarm Index by Default Severity

The following tables group alarms and conditions by their default severities in the ONS 15454 SDH system. These severities are reported in the CTC Alarms window severity (SEV) column.


Note The CTC default alarm profile contains some alarms or conditions that are not currently implemented but are reserved for future use.


The following tables group alarms and conditions by the severity displayed in the CTC Alarms window in the severity (SEV) column. All severities listed in this manual are the default profile settings. Alarm severities can be altered from default settings for individual alarms or groups of alarms by creating a nondefault alarm profile and applying it on a port, card, or shelf basis. All settings (default or user-defined) that are Critical (CR) or Major (MJ) are demoted to Minor (MN) in situations that do not affect service.


Note The CTC default alarm profile in some cases contains two severities for one alarm (for example, MJ/MN). The ONS 15454 SDH platform default severity comes first (in this example, MJ), but the alarm can be demoted to the second severity in the presence of a higher-ranking alarm when there is no effect on service.

2.3  Alarm Logical Objects

The CTC alarm profile list organizes all alarms and conditions according to the logical objects they are raised against. These logical objects represent physical objects such as cards, logical objects such as circuits, or transport and signal monitoring entities such as the SDH or ITU-T G.709 optical overhead bits. One alarm might appear in multiple entries when it can be raised against multiple objects. For example, the loss of signal (LOS) alarm can be raised against the optical signal (STM-N) or the optical transport layer overhead (OTN) as well as other objects. Therefore, both STM-N:LOS and OTN:LOS appear in the list (as well as the other objects).

Alarm profile list objects are defined in Table 2-7.


Note Alarm logical object names can appear as abbreviated versions of standard terms used in the system and the documentation. For example, the "STMN" logical object refers to the STM-N signal. Logical object names or industry-standard terms are used within the entries as appropriate.

2.4  Alarm Index by Logical Object Type

Table 2-8 lists all ONS 15454 SDH Release 5.0 alarms and logical objects as they are given in the system alarm profile. The list entries are organized by logical object name and then by alarm or condition name. Each entry contains a page number that refers to an alarm description in this chapter. Where appropriate, the alarm entries also contain troubleshooting procedures.


Note In a mixed network containing different types of nodes (such as ONS 15310, ONS 15454 SDH, and ONS 15600), the initially displayed alarm list in the Provisioning > Alarm Profiles > Alarm Profile Editor tab lists all conditions applicable to all nodes in the network. However, when you load the default severity profile from a node, only applicable alarms will display severity levels. Nonapplicable alarms can display "use default" or "unset."



Note In some cases this list does not follow alphabetical order, but it does reflect the order shown in CTC.

2.5  Trouble Notifications

The ONS 15454 SDH system reports trouble by utilizing standard alarm and condition characteristics, standard severities following the rules in ITU-T x.733, and graphical user interface (GUI) state indicators. These notifications are described in the following paragraphs.

The ONS 15454 SDH uses standard categories to characterize levels of trouble. The system reports trouble notifications as alarms and status or descriptive notifications (if configured to do so) as conditions in the CTC Alarms window. Alarms typically signify a problem that the user needs to remedy, such as a loss of signal. Conditions do not necessarily require troubleshooting.

2.5.1  Alarm Characteristics

The ONS 15454 SDH uses standard alarm entities to identify what is causing trouble. All alarms stem from hardware, software, environment, or operator-originated problems whether or not they affect service. Current alarms for the network, CTC session, node, or card are listed in the Alarms tab. (In addition, cleared alarms are also found in the History tab.)

2.5.2  Condition Characteristics

Conditions include any problem detected on an ONS 15454 SDH shelf. They might include standing or transient notifications. A snapshot of all current raised, standing conditions on the network, node, or card can be retrieved in the CTC Conditions window or using TL1's set of RTRV-COND commands. (In addition, some but not all cleared conditions are also found in the History tab.)


Note ONS 15454 SDH condition reporting is not ITU-compliant.


2.5.3  Severities

The ONS 15454 SDH uses ITU-devised standard severities for alarms and conditions: Critical (CR), Major (MJ), Minor (MN), Not Alarmed (NA), and Not Reported (NR). These are described below:

A Critical (CR) alarm generally indicates severe, service-affecting trouble that needs immediate correction, such as an LOS on a trunk port or STM signal.

A Major (MJ) alarm is a serious alarm, but the trouble has less impact on the network. For example, an APS channel mismatch (APSCNMIS) alarm occurs when working and protect channels have been inadvertently switched so that a working channel is expected at the receive end, but a protect channel is received instead.

Minor (MN) alarms generally are those that do not affect service. For example, the APS byte failure (APSB) alarm indicates that line terminating equipment detects a byte failure on the signal that could prevent traffic from properly executing a traffic switch.

Not Alarmed (NA) conditions are information indicators, such as for a free-running synchronization (FRNGSYNC) state or a forced-switch to primary timing (FRCSWTOPRI) event. They might or might not require troubleshooting, as indicated in the entries.

Not Reported (NR) conditions occur as a secondary result of another event. For example, the alarm indication signal (MS-AIS), with severity NR, is inserted by a downstream node when an LOS (CR or MJ) alarm occurs upstream. These conditions do not in themselves require troubleshooting, but are to be expected in the presence of primary alarms.

All alarm, condition, and unreported event severities listed in this manual are default profile settings. However in situations when traffic is not lost—such as when the alarm occurs on protected ports or circuits—alarms having Critical (CR) or Major (MJ) default severities can be demoted to lower severities such as Minor (MN) or Non-Service Affecting (NSA) when they do not affect service.

Severities can also be customized, for an entire network or for single nodes, from the network level down to the port level by changing or downloading customized alarm profiles. Procedures for customizing alarm severities are located in Chapter 7, "Manage Alarms," in the Cisco ONS 15454 SDH Procedure Guide.

2.5.4  Service Effect

The ITU also provides service effect standards. Service-Affecting (SA) alarms—those that interrupt service—might be Critical (CR), Major (MJ), or Minor (MN) severity alarms. Non-Service Affecting (NSA) alarms always have a Minor (MN) default severity.

2.5.5  States

The Alarms and History tab state (ST) column indicate the disposition of the alarm or condition as follows:

A raised (R) event is one that is active.

A cleared (C) event is one that is no longer active.

A transient (T) event is one that is automatically raised and cleared in CTC during system changes such as user login, logout, loss of connection to node view, etc. Transient events do not require user action.


Note Transient events are not defined in this documentation release.


2.6  Safety Summary

This section covers safety considerations designed to ensure safe operation of the ONS 15454 SDH. Do not perform any procedures in this chapter unless you understand all safety precautions, practices, and warnings for the system equipment. Some troubleshooting procedures require installation or removal of cards; in these instances pay close attention to the following caution.


Caution Hazardous voltage or energy could be present on the backplane when the system is operating. Use caution when removing or installing cards.

Some troubleshooting procedures require installation or removal of STM-64 cards. In these instances, pay close attention to the following warnings.


Warning On the OC192 LR/STM64 LH 1550 card, the laser is on when the card is booted and the safety key is in the on position (labeled 1). The port does not have to be in service for the laser to be on. The laser is off when the safety key is off (labeled 0). Statement 293



Warning Invisible laser radiation could be emitted from the end of the unterminated fiber cable or connector. Do not stare into the beam directly with optical instruments. Viewing the laser output with certain optical instruments (for example, eye loupes, magnifiers, and microscopes) within a distance of 100 mm could pose an eye hazard. Statement 1056



Warning Use of controls, adjustments, or performing procedures other than those specified may result in hazardous radiation exposure. Statement 1057



Warning Class 1 laser product. Statement 1008



Warning Class 1M laser radiation when open. Do not view directly with optical instruments. Statement 1053



Warning Do not reach into a vacant slot or chassis while you install or remove a module or a fan. Exposed circuitry could constitute an energy hazard. Statement 206



Warning The power supply circuitry for the equipment can constitute an energy hazard. Before you install or replace the equipment, remove all jewelry (including rings, necklaces, and watches). Metal objects can come into contact with exposed power supply wiring or circuitry inside the DSLAM equipment. This could cause the metal objects to heat up and cause serious burns or weld the metal object to the equipment. Statement 207


2.7  Alarm Procedures

This section list alarms alphabetically and includes some conditions commonly encountered when troubleshooting alarms. The severity, description, and troubleshooting procedure accompany each alarm and condition.


Note When you check the status of alarms for cards, ensure that the alarm filter icon in the lower right corner is not indented. If it is, click it to turn it off. When you're done checking for alarms, click the alarm filter icon again to turn filtering back on. For more information about alarm filtering, refer to the Cisco ONS 15454 SDH Procedure Guide.



Note When checking alarms, ensure that alarm suppression is not enabled on the card or port. For more information about alarm suppression, refer to the Cisco ONS 15454 SDH Procedure Guide Chapter 7, "Manage Alarms."


2.7.1  AIS

Not Reported (NR), Non-Service Affecting (NSA)

Logical Objects: BITS, DS3, E1, E3, E4, FUDC, MSUDC, TRUNK

The Alarm Indication Signal (AIS) condition indicates that this node is detecting AIS in the incoming signal SDH overhead.

Generally, any AIS is a special SDH signal that communicates to the receiving node when the transmit node does not send a valid signal. AIS is not considered an error. It is raised by the receiving node on each input when it sees the AIS instead of a real signal. In most cases when this condition is raised, an upstream node is raising an alarm to indicate a signal failure; all nodes downstream from it only raise some type of AIS. This condition clears when you resolved the problem on the upstream node.


Note DS3i-N-12 card DS3 facility and terminal loopbacks do not transmit DS3 AIS in the direction away from the loopback. Instead of DS3 AIS, a continuance of the signal transmitted to the loopback is provided.


Clear the AIS Condition


Step 1 Determine whether there are alarms on the upstream nodes and equipment, especially the "LOS (STM1E, STMN)" alarm on page 2-146, or locked (Locked, maintenance or Locked, disabled) ports.

Step 2 Clear the upstream alarms using the applicable procedures in this chapter.

Step 3 If the condition does not clear, log into the Technical Support Website at http://www.cisco.com/techsupport for more information or log into http://www.cisco.com/warp/public/687/Directory/DirTAC.shtml to obtain a directory of toll-free Technical Support numbers for your country.


2.7.2  ALS

Default Severity: Not Alarmed (NA), Non-Service Affecting (NSA)

Logical Objects: 2R, AOTS, ESCON, FC, GE, ISC, STMN, TRUNK

The Automatic Laser Shutdown (ALS) condition occurs when a DWDM Optical Preamplifier (OPT-PRE) or Optical Booster (OPT-BST) Amplifier card is switched on. The turn-on process lasts approximately nine seconds, and the condition clears after approximately ten seconds.


Note ALS is an informational condition and does not require troubleshooting.


2.7.3  AMPLI-INIT

The AMPLI-INIT condition is not supported in this release. It is reserved for future development.

2.7.4  APC-CORRECTION-SKIPPED

Default Severity: Not Alarmed (NA), Non-Service Affecting (NSA)

Logical Objects: AOTS, OCH, OMS, OTS

The Automatic Power Control (APC) Correction Skipped condition occurs when the actual power level of a DWDM channel exceeds the threshold setting by 3 dBm or more. The APC compares actual power levels with power level thresholds every 10 minutes or after any channel allocation is performed. If the actual power level is above or below the setting within 3 dBm, APC corrects the level. But if the actual power level exceeds the threshold by +3 dBm or -3 dBm, APC cannot correct the level and the APC-CORRECTION-SKIPPED condition is raised.

There is no operator action to resolve this condition. It stays raised until the power level problem is resolved and APC takes a normal reading. For more information about APC, refer to the Cisco ONS 15454 DWDM Installation and Operations Guide.


Note APC-CORRECTION-SKIPPED is an informational condition and does not require troubleshooting.


2.7.5  APC-DISABLED

Default Severity: Not Alarmed (NA), Non-Service Affecting (NSA)

Logical Object: NE

The Automatic Power Control (APC) Disabled condition occurs when the information related to the number of channels is not reliable. The condition can occur when the any of the following alarms also occur: the "EQPT" alarm on page 2-71, the "IMPROPRMVL" alarm on page 2-122, or the "MEA (EQPT)" alarm on page 2-177. If the alarm occurs with the creation of the first circuit, delete and recreate the circuit. For more information about APC, refer to the Cisco ONS 15454 DWDM Installation and Operations Guide.

Clear the APC-DISABLED Condition


Step 1 Complete the appropriate procedure to clear the primary cause alarm:

Clear the EQPT Alarm

Clear the IMPROPRMVL Alarm

Clear the MEA (FAN) Alarm

Step 2 If the APC-DISABLED condition does not clear, complete the "Delete a Circuit" procedure and then recreate it.

Step 3 If the condition does not clear, log into the Technical Support Website at http://www.cisco.com/techsupport for more information or log into http://www.cisco.com/warp/public/687/Directory/DirTAC.shtml to obtain a directory of toll-free Technical Support numbers for your country.


2.7.6  APC-END

Default Severity: Not Alarmed (NA), Non-Service Affecting (NSA)

Logical Object: NE

The APC Terminated on Manual Request condition is raised when the APC application terminates after being manually launched from CTC or TL1. It is an informational condition. For more information about APC, refer to the Cisco ONS 15454 DWDM Installation and Operations Guide.


Note APC-END is an informational condition and does not require troubleshooting.


2.7.7  APC-OUT-OF-RANGE

Default Severity: Not Alarmed (NA), Non-Service Affecting (NSA)

Logical Objects: AOTS, OCH, OMS, OTS

The APC Out of Range condition is raised on DWDM amplifier cards (OPT-PRE and OPT-BST); optical service channel cards (OSCM and OSC-CSM); multiplexer cards (32MUX-O); demultiplexer cards (32DMX, 32DMX-O); and optical add/drop multiplexer cards (AD-1C-xx.x, AD-2C-xx.x, AD-4C-xx.x, AD-1B-xx.x, and AD-4B-xx.x) when the requested gain or attenuation setpoint cannot be set because it exceeds the port parameter range. For example, this condition is raised when APC attempts to set the OPT-BST gain higher than 20 dBm (the maximum set-point) or set the attenuation on the express variable optical attenuator (VOA) lower than 0dBm, the minimum set-point.

For more information about APC, refer to the Cisco ONS 15454 DWDM Installation and Operations Guide.

Clear the APC-OUT-OF-RANGE Condition


Step 1 Provision the correct setpoint. For instructions, refer to the Cisco ONS 15454 DWDM Installation and Operations Guide. The condition clears when the APC setting is corrected and after APC does not detect any errors in its next cycle.

Step 2 If the condition does not clear, log into the Technical Support Website at http://www.cisco.com/techsupport for more information or log into http://www.cisco.com/warp/public/687/Directory/DirTAC.shtml to obtain a directory of toll-free TAC numbers for your country.


2.7.8  APSB

Default Severity: Minor (MN), Non-Service Affecting (NSA)

Logical Object: STMN

The Automatic Protection Switching (APS) Channel Byte Failure alarm occurs when line terminating equipment detects protection switching byte failure or an invalid switching code in the incoming APS signal. Some older non-Cisco SDH nodes send invalid APS codes if they are configured in a 1+1 protection scheme with newer SDH nodes, such as the ONS 15454 SDH. These invalid codes cause an APSB on an ONS 15454 SDH.

Clear the APSB Alarm


Step 1 Use an optical test set to examine the incoming SDH overhead to confirm inconsistent or invalid K bytes. For specific procedures to use the test set equipment, consult the manufacturer. If corrupted K bytes are confirmed and the upstream equipment is functioning properly, the upstream equipment might not interoperate effectively with the ONS 15454 SDH.

Step 2 If the alarm does not clear and the overhead shows inconsistent or invalid K bytes, you might need to replace the upstream cards for protection switching to operate properly. Complete the "Physically Replace a Traffic Card" procedure.


Caution For the ONS 15454 SDH, removing a card that currently carries traffic on one or more ports can cause a traffic hit. To avoid this, perform an external switch if a switch has not already occurred. See the "Protection Switching, Lock Initiation, and Clearing" section for commonly used alarm troubleshooting procedures.


Note When you replace a card with an identical type of card, you do not need to make any changes to the database.


Step 3 If the alarm does not clear, log into log into the Technical Support Website at http://www.cisco.com/techsupport for more information or log into http://www.cisco.com/warp/public/687/Directory/DirTAC.shtml to obtain a directory of toll-free Technical Support numbers for your country.


2.7.9  APSCDFLTK

Default Severity: Minor (MN), Non-Service Affecting (NSA)

Logical Object: STMN

The APS Default K Byte Received alarm occurs when a multiplex section-shared protection ring (MS-SPRing) is not properly configured, for example, when a four-node MS-SPRing has one node configured as a subnetwork connection protection (SNCP) ring. When this misconfiguration occurs, a node in an SNCP ring or 1+1 configuration does not send the two valid K1/K2 APS bytes anticipated by a system configured for MS-SPRing. One of the bytes sent is considered invalid by the MS-SPRing configuration. The K1/K2 byte is monitored by receiving equipment for link-recovery information.

Troubleshooting for APSCDFLTK is often similar to troubleshooting for the "MSSP-OOSYNC" alarm on page 2-184.

Clear the APSCDFLTK Alarm


Step 1 Complete the "Identify an MS-SPRing Ring Name or Node ID Number" procedure to verify that each node has a unique node ID number.

Step 2 Repeat Step 1 for all nodes in the ring.

Step 3 If two nodes have the same node ID number, complete the "Change an MS-SPRing Node ID Number" procedure to change one node ID number so that each node ID is unique.

Step 4 If the alarm does not clear, verify correct configuration of east port and west port optical fibers. (See the "EXCCOL" alarm on page 2-77.) West port fibers must connect to east port fibers and vice versa. The Cisco ONS 15454 SDH Procedure Guide Chapter 2, "Install Cards and Fiber-Optic Cable," provides a procedure for fibering MS-SPRings.

Step 5 If the alarm does not clear and if the network is a four-fiber MS-SPRing, ensure that each protect fiber is connected to another protect fiber and each working fiber is connected to another working fiber. The software does not report any alarm if a working fiber is incorrectly attached to a protect fiber.

Step 6 If the alarm does not clear, complete the "Verify Node Visibility for Other Nodes" procedure.

Step 7 If nodes are not visible, complete the "Verify or Create Node SDCC Terminations" procedure to ensure that section data communications channel (DCC) terminations exist on each node.

Step 8 If the alarm does not clear, log into the Technical Support Website at http://www.cisco.com/techsupport for more information or log into http://www.cisco.com/warp/public/687/Directory/DirTAC.shtml to obtain a directory of toll-free Technical Support numbers for your country.


2.7.10  APSC-IMP

Default Severity: Minor (MN), Non-Service Affecting (NSA)

Logical Object: STM-N

An Improper SDH APS Code alarm indicates bad or invalid K bytes. The APSC-IMP alarm occurs on STM-N cards in a MS-SPRing configuration and can occur during MS-SPRing configuration.

The receiving equipment monitors K bytes or K1 and K2 APS bytes for an indication to switch from the working card to the protect card or vice versa. K1/K2 bytes also contain bits that tell the receiving equipment whether the K byte is valid. The alarm clears when the node receives valid K bytes.


Warning Invisible laser radiation could be emitted from the end of the unterminated fiber cable or connector. Do not stare into the beam directly with optical instruments. Viewing the laser output with certain optical instruments (for example, eye loupes, magnifiers, and microscopes) within a distance of 100 mm could pose an eye hazard. Statement 1056



Warning Use of controls, adjustments, or performing procedures other than those specified may result in hazardous radiation exposure. Statement 1057


Clear the APSC-IMP Alarm


Step 1 Use an optical test set to determine the validity of the K byte signal by examining the received signal. For specific procedures to use the test set equipment, consult the manufacturer.


Caution Always use the supplied electrostatic discharge wristband when working with a powered ONS 15454 SDH. Plug the wristband cable into the ESD jack located on the on the middle-right outside edge of the shelf assembly.

If the K byte is invalid, the problem is with upstream equipment and not in the reporting ONS 15454 SDH. Troubleshoot the upstream equipment using the procedures in this chapter, as applicable. If the upstream nodes are not ONS 15454 SDHs, consult the appropriate user documentation.

Step 2 If the K byte is valid, verify that each node has a ring name that matches the other node ring names. Complete the "Identify an MS-SPRing Ring Name or Node ID Number" procedure.

Step 3 Repeat Step 2 for all nodes in the ring.

Step 4 If a node has a ring name that does not match the other nodes, make that node's ring name identical to the other nodes. Complete the "Change an MS-SPRing Ring Name" procedure.

Step 5 If the condition does not clear, log into the Cisco Technical Support website at http://www.cisco.com/techsupport for more information or log into http://www.cisco.com/warp/public/687/Directory/DirTAC.shtml to obtain a directory of toll-free Technical Support numbers for your country.


2.7.11  APSCINCON

Default Severity: Minor (MN), Non-Service Affecting (NSA)

Logical Object: STMN

An Inconsistent APS Code alarm indicates that the APS code contained in the SDH overhead is inconsistent. The SDH overhead contains K1/K2 APS bytes that notify receiving equipment, such as the ONS 15454 SDH, to switch the SDH signal from a working to a protect path. An inconsistent APS code occurs when three consecutive frames do not contain identical APS bytes. Inconsistent APS bytes give the receiving equipment conflicting commands about switching.

Clear the APSCINCON Alarm on an STM-N Card in an MS-SPRing


Step 1 Look for other alarms, especially the "LOS (STM1E, STMN)" alarm on page 2-146, the "LOF (DS3, E1, E4, STM1E, STMN)" alarm on page 2-135, or the "APSB" alarm on page 2-26. Clearing these alarms clears the APSCINCON alarm.

Step 2 If an APSINCON alarm occurs with no other alarms, log into the Cisco Technical Support Website at http://www.cisco.com/techsupport for more information or log into http://www.cisco.com/warp/public/687/Directory/DirTAC.shtml to obtain a directory of toll-free Technical Support numbers for your country.


2.7.12  APSCM

Default Severity: Major (MJ), Service-Affecting (SA) for STMN

Logical Object: STMN

An Improper SDH APS Code alarm indicates three consecutive, identical frames containing:

Unused code in bits 6 through 8 of byte K2.

Codes that are irrelevant to the specific protection switching operation being requested.

Requests that are irrelevant to the ring state of the ring (such as a span protection switch request in a two-fiber ring NE).

ET code in K2 bits 6 through 8 received on the incoming span, but not sourced from the outgoing span.


Warning On the OC192 LR/STM64 LH 1550 card, the laser is on when the card is booted and the safety key is in the on position (labeled 1). The port does not have to be in service for the laser to be on. The laser is off when the safety key is off (labeled 0). Statement 293



Warning Invisible laser radiation could be emitted from the end of the unterminated fiber cable or connector. Do not stare into the beam directly with optical instruments. Viewing the laser output with certain optical instruments (for example, eye loupes, magnifiers, and microscopes) within a distance of 100 mm could pose an eye hazard. Statement 1056



Warning Use of controls, adjustments, or performing procedures other than those specified may result in hazardous radiation exposure. Statement 1057


Clear the APSCM Alarm


Step 1 Verify that the working-card channel fibers are physically connected directly to the adjoining node's working-card channel fibers.


Caution Always use the supplied electrostatic discharge wristband when working with a powered ONS 15454 SDH. Plug the wristband cable into the ESD jack located on the middle-right outside edge of the shelf assembly.

Step 2 If the alarm does not clear, verify that the protection-card channel fibers are physically connected directly to the adjoining node's protection-card channel fibers.

Step 3 If the alarm does not clear, log into the Technical Support Website at http://www.cisco.com/techsupport for more information or log into http://www.cisco.com/warp/public/687/Directory/DirTAC.shtml to obtain a directory of toll-free Technical Support numbers for your country in order to report a service-affecting problem.


2.7.13  APSCNMIS

Default Severity: Major (MJ), Service-Affecting (SA)

Logical Object: STMN

The APS Node ID Mismatch alarm occurs when the source node ID contained in the incoming APS channel K2 byte is not present in the ring map. APSCNMIS could occur and clear when an MS-SPRing is being provisioned. If so, the user can disregard the temporary occurrence. If the APSCNMIS occurs and stays, the alarm clears when a K byte with a valid source node ID is received.

Clear the APSCNMIS Alarm


Step 1 Complete the "Identify an MS-SPRing Ring Name or Node ID Number" procedure for each node to verify that each node has a unique node ID number.

Step 2 If the Node ID column contains any two nodes with the same node ID listed, record the repeated node ID.

Step 3 Click Close in the Ring Map dialog box.

Step 4 If two nodes have the same node ID number, complete the "Change an MS-SPRing Node ID Number" procedure to change one node ID number so that each node ID is unique.


Note If the node names shown in the network view do not correlate with the node IDs, log into each node and click the Provisioning > MS-SPRing tabs. The MS-SPRing window shows the node ID of the login node.



Note Applying and removing a lockout on a span causes the ONS node to generate a new K byte. The APSCNMIS alarm clears when the node receives a K byte containing the correct node ID.


Step 5 If the alarm does not clear, use the "Initiate a Lockout on an MS-SPRing Protect Span" procedure to lock out the span.

Step 6 Complete the "Clear a MS-SPRing External Switching Command" procedure to clear the lockout.

Step 7 If the alarm does not clear, log into the Technical Support Website at http://www.cisco.com/techsupport for more information or log into http://www.cisco.com/warp/public/687/Directory/DirTAC.shtml to obtain a directory of toll-free Technical Support numbers for your country in order to report a service-affecting problem.


2.7.14  APSIMP

Default Severity: Not Alarmed (NA), Non-Service Affecting (NSA)

Logical Object: STMN

The APS Invalid Mode condition occurs if a 1+1 protection group is not properly configured at both nodes to send or receive the correct APS byte. A node that is either configured for no protection or is configured for SNCP or MS-SPRing protection does not send the right K2 APS byte anticipated by a system configured for 1+1 protection. The 1+1 protect port monitors the incoming K2 APS byte and raises this alarm if it does not receive the byte.

The condition is superseded by an APS or APSCM. It is not superseded by AIS or remote defect indication (RDI) line alarms. It clears when the port receives a valid code for 10 ms.

Clear the APSIMP Condition


Step 1 Check the configuration of the other node in the 1+1 protection group. If the far end is not configured for 1+1 protection, create the group.

Step 2 If the other end of the group is properly configured or the alarm does not clear after you have provisioned the group correctly, verify that the working ports and protect ports are cabled correctly.

Step 3 Ensure that both protect ports are configured for SDH.

Step 4 If the condition does not clear, log into the Technical Support Website at http://www.cisco.com/techsupport for more information or log into http://www.cisco.com/warp/public/687/Directory/DirTAC.shtml to obtain a directory of toll-free Technical Support numbers for your country.


2.7.15  AS-CMD

Default Severity: Not Alarmed (NA), Non-Service Affecting (NSA)

Logical Objects: 2R, AOTS, BPLANE, DS3, E1,E100T, E1000F, E3, E4, EQPT, ESCON, FC, FCMR, G1000, GE, GFP-FAC, ISC, ML100T, ML1000, NE, OCH, OMS, OTS, PPM, PWR, STM1E, STMN,TRUNK

The Alarms Suppressed by User Command condition applies to the network element (NE object), backplane, a single card, or a port on a card. It occurs when alarms are suppressed for that object and its subordinate objects; that is, For example, suppressing alarms on a card also suppresses alarms on its ports.

Clear the AS-CMD Condition


Step 1 For all nodes, in node view, click the Conditions tab.

Step 2 Click Retrieve. If you have already retrieved conditions, look under the Object column and Eqpt Type column and note what entity the condition is reported against, such as a port, slot, or shelf.

If the condition is reported against an STM-N card and slot, alarms were either suppressed for the entire card or for one of the ports. Note the slot number and continue with Step 3.

If the condition is reported against the backplane, go to Step 8.

If the condition is reported against the NE object, go to Step 9.

Step 3 If the AS-CMD condition is reported for an STM-N card, determine whether alarms are suppressed for a port and if so, raise the suppressed alarms:

a. Double-click the card to display the card view.

b. Click the Provisioning > Alarm Profiles > Alarm Behavior tabs.

If the Suppress Alarms column check box is checked for a port row, deselect it and click Apply.

If the Suppress Alarms column check box is not checked for a port row, click View > Go to Previous View.

Step 4 If the AS-CMD condition is reported for an amplifier, combiner, or other DWDM card, determine whether alarms are suppressed for a port and if so, raise the suppressed alarms:

a. Double-click the card to display the card view.

b. Click the Provisioning > Optical Line > Alarm Profiles tabs.

If the Suppress Alarms column check box is checked for a port row, deselect it and click Apply.

If the Suppress Alarms column check box is not checked for a port row, click View > Go to Previous View.

Step 5 In node view, if the AS-CMD condition is reported for a card and not an individual port, click the Provisioning > Alarm Profiles > Alarm Behavior tabs.

Step 6 Locate the row for the reported card slot.

Step 7 Click the Suppress Alarms column check box to deselect the option for the card row.

2.7.18  AU-AIS

Default Severity: Not Reported (NR), Non-Service Affecting (NSA)

Logical Objects: VCMON-HP, VCTRM-HP

An Administration Unit (AU) AIS condition applies to the administration unit, which consists of the virtual container (VC) capacity and pointer bytes (H1, H2, and H3) in the SDH frame.

Generally, any AIS is a special SDH signal that communicates to the receiving node when the transmit node does not send a valid signal. AIS is not considered an error. It is raised by the receiving node on each input when it sees the AIS instead of a real signal. In most cases when this condition is raised, an upstream node is raising an alarm to indicate a signal failure; all nodes downstream from it only raise some type of AIS. This condition clears when you resolved the problem on the upstream node.

Clear the AU-AIS Condition


Step 1 Complete the "Clear the AIS Condition" procedure.

Step 2 If the condition does not clear, complete the "Clear the APSB Alarm" procedure.

Step 3 If the condition does not clear, log into the Technical Support Website at http://www.cisco.com/techsupport for more information or log into http://www.cisco.com/warp/public/687/Directory/DirTAC.shtml to obtain a directory of toll-free Technical Support numbers for your country.

Default Severity: Critical (CR), Service-Affecting (SA)

Logical Objects: VCMON-HP, VCTRM-HP

An AU Loss of Pointer (LOP) alarm indicates that the SDH high order path overhead section of the administration unit has detected a loss of path. AU-LOP occurs when there is a mismatch between the expected and provisioned circuit size. For the TXP card, an AU-LOP is raised if a port is configured for an SDH signal but receives a SONET signal instead. (This information is contained in the H1 byte bits 5 and 6.)


Warning Invisible laser radiation could be emitted from the end of the unterminated fiber cable or connector. Do not stare into the beam directly with optical instruments. Viewing the laser output with certain optical instruments (for example, eye loupes, magnifiers, and microscopes) within a distance of 100 mm could pose an eye hazard. Statement 1056



Warning Use of controls, adjustments, or performing procedures other than those specified may result in hazardous radiation exposure. Statement 1057


Clear the AU-LOP Alarm


Step 1 In node view, click the Circuits tab and view the alarmed circuit.

Step 2 Verify that the correct circuit size is listed in the Size column. If the size is different from what is expected, such as a VC4-4c instead of a VC4, this causes the alarm.

Step 3 If you have been monitoring the circuit with optical test equipment, a mismatch between the provisioned circuit size and the size expected by the test set can cause this alarm. Ensure that the test set monitoring is set up for the same size as the circuit provisioning.

For instructions to use the optical test set, consult the manufacturer.

Step 4 If you have not been using a test set, or if the test set is correctly set up, the error is in the provisioned CTC circuit size. Complete the "Delete a Circuit" procedure.

2.7.38  CARLOSS (E100T, E1000F)

Default Severity: Major (MJ), Service-Affecting (SA)

Logical Objects: E100T, E1000F

A Carrier Loss alarm on the LAN E-Series Ethernet card is the data equivalent of the "LOS (STM1E, STMN)" alarm on page 2-146. The Ethernet card has lost its link and is not receiving a valid signal. The most common causes of the CARLOSS alarm are a disconnected cable, an Ethernet Gigabit Interface Converter (GBIC) fiber connected to an optical card rather than an Ethernet device, or an improperly installed Ethernet card. Ethernet card ports must be enabled for CARLOSS to occur. CARLOSS is declared after no signal is received for approximately 2.5 seconds.

CARLOSS also occurs after the restoration of a node database. In this instance, the alarm clears approximately 30 seconds after the node reestablishes Spanning Tree Protocol (STP). Reestablishment applies to the E-Series Ethernet cards but not to the G1000-4 card. The G1000-4 card does not use STP and is not affected by STP reestablishment.

Clear the CARLOSS (E100T, E1000F) Alarm


Step 1 Verify that the fiber cable is properly connected and attached to the correct port. For more information about fiber connections and terminations, refer to the Cisco ONS 15454 SDH Procedure Guide Chapter 2, "Install Cards and Fiber-Optic Cable."


Caution Always use the supplied electrostatic discharge wristband when working with a powered ONS 15454 SDH. Plug the wristband cable into the ESD jack located on the middle-right outside edge of the shelf assembly.

Step 2 If the fiber cable is properly connected and attached to the port, verify that the cable connects the card to another Ethernet device and is not misconnected to an STM-N card. For more information about fiber connections and terminations, refer to the Cisco ONS 15454 SDH Procedure Guide Chapter 2, "Install Cards and Fiber-Optic Cable."

Step 3 If no misconnection to an STM-N card exists, verify that the transmitting device is operational. If not, troubleshoot the device.

Step 4 If the alarm does not clear, use an Ethernet test set to determine whether a valid signal is coming into the Ethernet port.

For specific procedures to use the test set equipment, consult the manufacturer.

Step 5 If a valid Ethernet signal is not present and the transmitting device is operational, replace the fiber cable connecting the transmitting device to the Ethernet port. To do this, refer to the Cisco ONS 15454 SDH Procedure Guide Chapter 2, "Install Cards and Fiber-Optic Cable."

Step 6 If a valid Ethernet signal is present, complete the "Remove and Reinsert (Reseat) Any Card" procedure for the Ethernet card.

Step 7 If the alarm does not clear, complete the "Physically Replace a Traffic Card" procedure for the Ethernet card.


Caution Removing a card that currently carries traffic on one or more ports can cause a traffic hit. To avoid this, perform an external switch if a switch has not already occurred. See the "Protection Switching, Lock Initiation, and Clearing" section for commonly used traffic-switching procedures.


Note When you replace a card with an identical type of card, you do not need to make any changes to the database.


Step 8 If a CARLOSS alarm repeatedly appears and clears, use the following steps to examine the layout of your network to determine whether the Ethernet circuit is part of an Ethernet manual cross-connect.

An Ethernet manual cross-connect is used when another vendors' equipment sits between ONS 15454 SDHs, and the OSI/TARP-based equipment does not allow tunneling of the ONS 15454 SDH TCP/IP-based DCC. To circumvent a lack of continuous DCC, the Ethernet circuit is manually cross connected to an STS channel riding through the non-ONS network.

Step 9 If the reporting Ethernet circuit is part of an Ethernet manual cross-connect, then the reappearing alarm may be a result of mismatched STS circuit sizes in the set up of the manual cross-connect. If the Ethernet circuit is not part of a manual cross-connect, the following steps do not apply.

a. Right-click anywhere in the row of the CARLOSS alarm.

b. Click Select Affected Circuits in the shortcut menu that appears.

c. Record the information in the type and size columns of the highlighted circuit.

d. From the examination of the layout of your network, determine which ONS 15454 SDH node and card host the Ethernet circuit at the other end of the Ethernet manual cross-connect.

Log into the ONS 15454 SDH at the other end of the Ethernet manual cross-connect.

Double-click the Ethernet card that is part of the Ethernet manual cross-connect.

Click the Circuits tab.

Record the information in the type and size columns of the circuit that is part of the Ethernet manual cross-connect. The Ethernet manual cross-connect circuit connects the Ethernet card to an STM-N card at the same node.

e. Use the information you recorded to determine whether the two Ethernet circuits on each side of the Ethernet manual cross-connect have the same circuit size.

If one of the circuit sizes is incorrect, complete the "Delete a Circuit" procedure and reconfigure the circuit with the correct circuit size. For more information, refer to the

2.7.39  CARLOSS (EQPT)

Default Severity: Major (MJ), Service-Affecting (SA)

Logical Object: EQPT

The Carrier Loss Equipment alarm occurs when the ONS 15454 SDH and the workstation hosting CTC do not have a TCP/IP connection. CARLOSS is a problem involving the LAN or data circuit used by the RJ-45 connector on the TCC2/TCC2P card or the LAN backplane pin connection on the back of the ONS 15454 SDH. The alarm does not involve an Ethernet circuit connected to a port on an Ethernet (traffic) card. The problem is in the connection (usually a LAN problem) and not the CTC or the ONS 15454 SDH.

On TXP_MR_10G, TXP_MR_2.5G, TXPP_MR_2.5G, and MXP_2.5G_10G cards, CARLOSS is also raised against trunk ports when ITU-T G.709 monitoring is turned off.

A TXP_MR_2.5G card can raise a CARLOSS alarm when the payload is incorrectly configured for the 10 Gigabit Ethernet or 1 Gigabit Ethernet payload data type.

Clear the CARLOSS (EQPT) Alarm


Step 1 If the reporting card is an MXP or TXP card in an ONS 15454 SDH node, verify the data rate configured on the pluggable port module (PPM):

a. Double-click the reporting MXP or TXP card.

b. Click the Provisioning > Pluggable Port Modules tabs.

c. View the Pluggable Port Modules area port listing in the Actual Equipment column for the MXP or TXP multirate (MR) card and compare this with the Selected PPM area Rate column contents.

d. If the rate does not match the actual equipment, you must delete and recreate the selected PPM. Select the PPM, click Delete, then click Create and choose the correct rate for the port rate.

Step 2 If the reporting card is an STM-N card, verify connectivity by pinging the ONS 15454 SDH that is reporting the alarm:

a. If you are using a Microsoft Windows operating system, from the Start Menu choose Programs > Accessories > Command Prompt.

b. If you are using a Sun Solaris operating system, from the Common Desktop Environment (CDE) click the Personal Application tab and click Terminal.

c. For both the Sun and Microsoft operating systems, at the prompt type:

ping ONS-15454SDH-IP-address

For example:

ping 198.168.10.10

If the workstation has connectivity to the ONS 15454 SDH, it shows a "reply from IP-Address" after the ping. If the workstation does not have connectivity, a "Request timed out" message appears.

Step 3 If the ping is successful, an active TCP/IP connection exists. Restart CTC:

a. Exit from CTC.

b. Reopen the browser.

c. Log into CTC.

Step 4 Using optical test equipment, verify that proper receive levels are achieved. (For instructions to use optical test equipment, refer to the manufacturer documentation.)

Step 5 Verify that the optical LAN cable is properly connected and attached to the correct port. For more information about fiber connections and terminations, refer to the Cisco ONS 15454 SDH Procedure Guide Chapter 2, "Install Cards and Fiber-Optic Cable."

Step 6 If the fiber cable is properly connected and attached to the port, verify that the cable connects the card to another Ethernet device and is not misconnected to an STM-N card. For more information about fiber connections and terminations, refer to the Cisco ONS 15454 SDH Procedure Guide Chapter 2, "Install Cards and Fiber-Optic Cable."

Step 7 If you are unable to establish connectivity, replace the fiber cable with a new known-good cable. To do this, refer to the Cisco ONS 15454 SDH Procedure Guide Chapter 2, "Install Cards and Fiber-Optic Cable."

Step 8 If you are unable to establish connectivity, perform standard network or LAN diagnostics. For example, trace the IP route, verify cable continuity, and troubleshoot any routers between the node and CTC.


Note To verify cable continuity, follow site practices.


Step 9 If you are unable to establish connectivity, perform standard network/LAN diagnostics. For example, trace the IP route, verify cable continuity, and troubleshoot any routers between the node. If the alarm does not clear, log into the Technical Support Website at http://www.cisco.com/techsupport for more information or log into http://www.cisco.com/warp/public/687/Directory/DirTAC.shtml to obtain a directory of toll-free Technical Support numbers for your country to report a service-affecting problem.


2.7.40  CARLOSS (FC)

The Carrier Loss for Fibre Channel alarm is not supported in this release. It is reserved for future development.

2.7.41  CARLOSS (G1000)

Default Severity: Major (MJ), Service-Affecting (SA)

Logical Object: G1000

A Carrier Loss alarm on the LAN G-Series Ethernet card is the data equivalent of the "LOS (STM1E, STMN)" alarm on page 2-146. The Ethernet card has lost its link and is not receiving a valid signal.

CARLOSS on the G1000-4 card can be caused by one of two situations:

The G1000-4 port reporting the alarm is not receiving a valid signal from the attached Ethernet device. The CARLOSS can be caused by an improperly connected Ethernet cable or a problem with the signal between the Ethernet device and the G1000-4 port.

If a problem exists in the end-to-end path (including possibly the far-end G1000-4 card), the problem causes the reporting G1000-4 to turn off the Gigabit Ethernet transmitter. Turning off the transmitter typically causes the attached device to turn off its link laser, which results in a CARLOSS on the reporting G1000-4 card. The root cause is the problem in the end-to-end path. When the root cause is cleared, the far-end G1000-4 port turns the transmitter laser back on and clears the CARLOSS on the reporting card. If a turned-off transmitter causes the CARLOSS alarm, it is normally accompanied by a "TPTFAIL (G1000)" alarm on page 2-238 or STM-N alarms or conditions on the end-to-end path.

Refer to the Cisco ONS 15454 SDH Reference Manual for a description of the G1000-4 card's end-to-end Ethernet link integrity capability. Also see the "TRMT" alarm on page 2-239 for more information about alarms that occur when a point-to-point circuit exists between two G1000-4 cards.

Ethernet card ports must be unlocked for CARLOSS to occur. CARLOSS is declared after no signal is received for approximately 2.5 seconds.

Clear the CARLOSS (G1000) Alarm


Step 1 Verify that the fiber cable is properly connected and attached to the correct port. For more information about fiber connections and terminations, refer to the Cisco ONS 15454 SDH Procedure Guide Chapter 2, "Install Cards and Fiber-Optic Cable."


Caution Always use the supplied electrostatic discharge wristband when working with a powered ONS 15454 SDH. Plug the wristband cable into the ESD jack located on the middle-right outside edge of the shelf assembly.

Step 2 If the fiber cable is correctly connected and attached, verify that the cable connects the card to another Ethernet device and is not misconnected to an STM-N card.

Step 3 If no misconnection to the STM-N card exists, verify that the attached transmitting Ethernet device is operational. If not, troubleshoot the device.

Step 4 Verify that optical receive levels are within the normal range. These are listed in the "1.12.3  Optical Card Transmit and Receive Levels" section on page 1-143.

Step 5 If the alarm does not clear, use an Ethernet test set to determine whether a valid signal is coming into the Ethernet port. For specific procedures to use the test set equipment, consult the manufacturer.

Step 6 If a valid Ethernet signal is not present and the transmitting device is operational, replace the fiber cable connecting the transmitting device to the Ethernet port. To do this, refer to the Cisco ONS 15454 SDH Procedure Guide Chapter 2, "Install Cards and Fiber-Optic Cable."

Step 7 If the alarm does not clear and link autonegotiation is enabled on the G1000-4 port, but the autonegotiation process fails, the card turns off its transmitter laser and reports a CARLOSS alarm. If link autonegotiation has been enabled for the port, determine whether there are conditions that could cause autonegotiation to fail:

a. Confirm that the attached Ethernet device has autonegotiation enabled and is configured for compatibility with the asymmetric flow control on the card.

b. Confirm that the attached Ethernet device configuration allows reception of flow control frames.

Step 8 If the alarm does not clear, disable and reenable the Ethernet port to attempt to remove the CARLOSS condition. (The autonegotiation process restarts.)

Step 9 If the alarm does not clear and the "TPTFAIL (G1000)" alarm on page 2-238 is also reported, complete the "Clear the TPTFAIL (G1000) Alarm" procedure. If the TPTFAIL alarm is not reported, continue to the next step.


Note When the CARLOSS and the TPTFAIL alarms are reported, the condition could be caused by the G1000-4 card's end-to-end link integrity feature taking action on a remote failure indicated by the TPTFAIL alarm.


Step 10 If the TPTFAIL alarm was not reported, determine whether a terminal (inward) loopback has been provisioned on the port:

a. In node view, click the card to go to card view.

b. Click the Maintenance > Loopback tabs.

c. If the port Admin State is listed as Locked, maintenance, a loopback might be provisioned. Go to Step 11.

Step 11 If a loopback was provisioned, complete the "Clear EC Card or or G-Series Card Loopbacks" procedure.

On the G1000-4, provisioning a terminal (inward) loopback causes the transmit laser to turn off. If an attached Ethernet device detects the loopback as a loss of carrier, the attached Ethernet device shuts off the transmit laser to the G1000-4 card. Terminating the transmit laser could raise the CARLOSS alarm because the looped-back G1000-4 port detects the termination.

If the card does not have a loopback condition, continue to Step 12.

Step 12 If a CARLOSS alarm repeatedly appears and clears, the reappearing alarm could be a result of mismatched STS circuit sizes in the setup of the manual cross-connect. Perform the following steps if the Ethernet circuit is part of a manual cross-connect:


Note An ONS 15454 SDH Ethernet manual cross-connect is used when another vendors' equipment sits between ONS nodes, and the Open System Interconnection/Target Identifier Address Resolution Protocol (OSI/TARP)-based equipment does not allow tunneling of the ONS 15454 SDH TCP/IP-based DCC. To circumvent a lack of continuous DCC, the Ethernet circuit is manually cross connected to an STS channel riding through the non-ONS network.


a. Right-click anywhere in the row of the CARLOSS alarm.

b. Right-click or left-click Select Affected Circuits in the shortcut menu that appears.

c. Record the information in the type and size columns of the highlighted circuit.

d. Examine the layout of your network and determine which ONS 15454 SDH and card host the Ethernet circuit at the other end of the Ethernet manual cross-connect by completing the following steps:

Log into the node at the other end of the Ethernet manual cross-connect.

Double-click the Ethernet card that is part of the Ethernet manual cross-connect.

Click the Circuits tab.

Record the information in the type and size columns of the circuit that is part of the Ethernet manual cross-connect. The cross-connect circuit connects the Ethernet card to an STM-N card at the same node.

e. Determine whether the two Ethernet circuits on each side of the Ethernet manual cross-connect have the same circuit size from the circuit size information you recorded.

f. If one of the circuit sizes is incorrect, complete the "Delete a Circuit" procedure and reconfigure the circuit with the correct circuit size. Refer to the Cisco ONS 15454 SDH Procedure Guide Chapter 6, "Create Circuits and Low-Order Tunnels," for detailed procedures to create circuits.

Step 13 If a valid Ethernet signal is present, complete the "Remove and Reinsert (Reseat) Any Card" procedure.

Step 14 If the alarm does not clear, complete the "Physically Replace a Traffic Card" procedure for the Ethernet card.


Caution Removing a card that currently carries traffic on one or more ports can cause a traffic hit. To avoid this, perform an external switch if a switch has not already occurred. See the "Protection Switching, Lock Initiation, and Clearing" section for commonly used traffic-switching procedures.


Note When you replace a card with an identical type of card, you do not need to make any changes to the database.


Step 15 If the alarm does not clear, log into the Technical Support Website at http://www.cisco.com/techsupport for more information or log into http://www.cisco.com/warp/public/687/Directory/DirTAC.shtml to obtain a directory of toll-free Technical Support numbers for your country in order to report a service-affecting problem.

2.7.53  CONTBUS-IO-A

Default Severity: Major (MJ), Service-Affecting (SA)

Logical Object: EQPT

A TCCA to Shelf A Slot Communication Failure alarm occurs when the active Slot 7 TCC2/TCC2P (TCC A) has lost communication with another card in the shelf. The other card is identified by the Object column in the CTC alarm window.

The CONTBUS-IO-A alarm can appear briefly when the ONS 15454 SDH switches to the protect TCC2/TCC2P. In the case of a TCC2/TCC2P protection switch, the alarm clears after the other cards establish communication with the newly active TCC2/TCC2P. If the alarm persists, the problem is with the physical path of communication from the TCC2/TCC2P card to the reporting card. The physical path of communication includes the TCC2/TCC2P, the other card, and the backplane.

Clear the CONTBUS-IO-A Alarm


Step 1 Ensure that the reporting card is physically present in the shelf. Record the card type. Click the Inventory tab and view the Eqpt Type column to reveal the provisioned type.

If the actual card type and the provisioned card type do not match, see the "MEA (EQPT)" alarm on page 2-177 for the reporting card.

Step 2 If the alarm object is any single card slot other than the standby Slot 11 TCC2/TCC2P, perform a CTC reset of the object card. Complete the "Reset a Traffic Card in CTC" procedure. For the LED behavior, see the "Typical Traffic Card LED Activity During Reset" section.

Step 3 If the alarm object is the standby Slot 11 TCC2/TCC2P, complete the "Reset a Traffic Card in CTC" procedure for it. The procedure is similar.

Wait ten minutes to verify that the card you reset completely reboots and becomes the standby card. (A reset standby card remains standby.)

Step 4 If CONTBUS-IO-A is raised on several cards at once, complete the "Reset an Active TCC2/TCC2P and Activate the Standby Card" procedure.

Wait ten minutes to verify that the card you reset completely reboots and becomes the standby card.

Step 5 Verify that the reset is complete and error-free and that no new related alarms appear in CTC. A green ACT/SBY LED indicates an active card. An amber ACT/SBY LED indicates a standby card.

Step 6 If the CTC reset does not clear the alarm, complete the "Remove and Reinsert (Reseat) Any Card" procedure for the reporting card.


Caution Always use the supplied electrostatic discharge wristband when working with a powered ONS 15454 SDH. Plug the wristband cable into the ESD jack located on the middle-right outside edge of the shelf assembly.

A TCC B to Shelf Communication Failure alarm occurs when the active Slot 11 TCC2/TCC2P (TCC B) has lost communication with another card in the shelf. The other card is identified by the Object column in the CTC alarm window.

The CONTBUS-IO-B alarm might appear briefly when the ONS 15454 SDH switches to the protect TCC2/TCC2P. In the case of a TCC2/TCC2P protection switch, the alarm clears after the other cards establish communication with the newly active TCC2/TCC2P. If the alarm persists, the problem is with the physical path of communication from the TCC2/TCC2P card to the reporting card. The physical path of communication includes the TCC2/TCC2P, the other card, and the backplane.

Clear the CONTBUS-IO-B Alarm


Step 1 Ensure that the reporting card is physically present in the shelf. Record the card type. Click the Inventory tab and view the Eqpt Type column to reveal the provisioned type.

If the actual card type and the provisioned card type do not match, see the "MEA (EQPT)" alarm on page 2-177 for the reporting card.

Step 2 If the alarm object is any single card slot other than the standby Slot 7 TCC2/TCC2P, perform a CTC reset of the object card. Complete the "Reset a Traffic Card in CTC" procedure. For the LED behavior, see the "Typical Traffic Card LED Activity During Reset" section.

Step 3 If the alarm object is the standby Slot 7 TCC2/TCC2P, complete the "Reset a Traffic Card in CTC" procedure for it. The procedure is similar.

Wait ten minutes to verify that the card you reset completely reboots and becomes the standby card. (A reset standby card remains standby.)

Step 4 If CONTBUS-IO-B is raised on several cards at once, complete the "Reset an Active TCC2/TCC2P and Activate the Standby Card" procedure.

Wait ten minutes to verify that the card you reset completely reboots and becomes the standby card.

Step 5 Verify that the reset is complete and error-free and that no new related alarms appear in CTC. A green ACT/SBY LED indicates an active card. An amber ACT/SBY LED indicates a standby card.

Step 6 If the CTC reset does not clear the alarm, complete the "Remove and Reinsert (Reseat) Any Card" procedure for the reporting card.


Caution Always use the supplied electrostatic discharge wristband when working with a powered ONS 15454 SDH. Plug the wristband cable into the ESD jack located on the middle-right outside edge of the shelf assembly.

Step 7 If the reset card has not rebooted successfully, or the alarm has not cleared, log into the Technical Support Website at http://www.cisco.com/techsupport for more information or log into http://www.cisco.com/warp/public/687/Directory/DirTAC.shtml to obtain a directory of toll-free TAC numbers for your country. If the Technical Support technician tells you to reseat the card, complete the "Remove and Reinsert (Reseat) the Standby TCC2/TCC2P Card" procedure. If the Technical Support technician tells you to remove the card and reinstall a new one, follow the "Physically Replace a Traffic Card" procedure.


2.7.55  CTNEQPT-MISMATCH

Default Severity: Not Alarmed (NA), Non-Service Affecting (NSA)

Logical Object: EQPT

The Connection Equipment Mismatch (CTNEQPT-MISMATCH) condition is raised when there is a mismatch between the cross-connect card preprovisioned in the slot and the card actually present in the shelf. For example, an XC-VXL card may be preprovisioned in Slot 10, but an XC10G may be physically installed.


Note Cisco does not support configurations of unmatched cross-connect cards in Slot 8 and Slot 10, although this situation may briefly occur during the upgrade process.



Note The cross-connect card you are replacing should not be the active card. (It can be in SBY state or otherwise not in use.)


If you upgrade a node to R5.0 and replace an XCVLX with an XC10G, the CTNEQPT-MISMATCH condition is raised but it is cleared when the upgrade process ends.


Note During an upgrade, this condition occurs and is raised as its default severity, Not Alarmed (NA). However, after the upgrade has occurred, if you wish to change the condition's severity so that it is Not Reported (NR), you can do this by modifying the alarm profile used at the node. For more information about modifying alarm severities, refer to the Cisco ONS 15454 SDH Procedure Guide.


Clear the CTNEQPT-MISMATCH Condition


Step 1 Verify what kind of card is preprovisioned in the slot:

a. In node view, click the Inventory tab.

b. View the slot's row contents in the Eqpt Type and Actual Eqpt Type columns.

The Eqpt Type column contains the equipment that is provisioned in the slot. The Actual Eqpt Type contains the equipment that is physically present in the slot. For example, Slot 8 might be provisioned for an XCVT card, which is shown in the Eqpt Type column, but an XC10G card could be physically present in the slot. The XC10G would be shown in the Actual Eqpt Type column.)

Step 2 Complete the "Physically Replace a Traffic Card" procedure for the mismatched card.

Step 3 If the condition does not clear, log into the Technical Support Website at http://www.cisco.com/techsupport for more information or log into http://www.cisco.com/warp/public/687/Directory/DirTAC.shtml to obtain a directory of toll-free Technical Support numbers for your country.

Warning Class 1M laser radiation when open. Do not view directly with optical instruments. Statement 1053



Warning On the OC192 LR/STM64 LH 1550 card, the laser is on when the card is booted and the safety key is in the on position (labeled 1). The port does not have to be in service for the laser to be on. The laser is off when the safety key is off (labeled 0). Statement 293



Warning Invisible laser radiation could be emitted from the end of the unterminated fiber cable or connector. Do not stare into the beam directly with optical instruments. Viewing the laser output with certain optical instruments (for example, eye loupes, magnifiers, and microscopes) within a distance of 100 mm could pose an eye hazard. Statement 1056



Warning Use of controls, adjustments, or performing procedures other than those specified may result in hazardous radiation exposure. Statement 1057



Note If a circuit shows an incomplete state when this alarm is raised, the logical circuit is in place. The circuit is able to carry traffic when the connection issue is resolved. You do not need to delete the circuit when troubleshooting this alarm.


Clear the EOC Alarm


Step 1 If the "LOS (DS3)" alarm on page 2-140 is also reported, complete the "Clear the LOS (DS3) Alarm" procedure.

Step 2 If the "SFTWDOWN" condition on page 2-219 is reported, complete the "Clear the SF (DS3, E1, E3, E4, STMN, VCTRM-LP) Condition" procedure.

Step 3 If the alarm does not clear on the reporting node, verify the physical connections between the cards and the fiber-optic cables are configured to carry SDCC traffic. If they are not, correct them. For more information about fiber connections and terminations, refer to the Cisco ONS 15454 SDH Procedure Guide Chapter 2, "Install Cards and Fiber-Optic Cable."


Caution Always use the supplied electrostatic discharge wristband when working with a powered ONS 15454 SDH. Plug the wristband cable into the ESD jack located on the middle-right outside edge of the shelf assembly.

If the physical connections are correct and configured to carry DCC traffic, verify that both ends of the fiber span have unlocked ports. Verify that the ACT/SBY LED on each STM-N card is green.

Step 4 When the LEDs on the STM-N cards are correctly illuminated, complete the "Verify or Create Node SDCC Terminations" procedure to verify that the DCC is provisioned for the ports at both ends of the fiber span.

Step 5 Repeat Step 4 at the adjacent nodes.

Step 6 If DCC is provisioned for the ends of the span, verify that the port is active and in service:

a. Confirm that the STM-N card shows a green LED in CTC or on the physical card.

A green ACT/SBY LED indicates an active card. An amber ACT/SBY LED indicates a standby card.

b. To determine whether the port is in service, double-click the card in CTC to display the card view.

c. Click the Provisioning > Line tabs.

d. Verify that the Admin State column lists the port as Unlocked.

e. If the Admin State column lists the port as Locked, maintenance or Locked, disabled, click the column and click Unlocked from the drop-down list. Click Apply.

Step 7 For all nodes, if the card is in service, use an optical test set to determine whether signal failures are present on fiber terminations.

For specific procedures to use the test set equipment, consult the manufacturer.


Caution Using an optical test set disrupts service on the STM-N card. It could be necessary to manually switch traffic carrying circuits over to a protection path. Refer to the "Protection Switching, Lock Initiation, and Clearing" section for commonly used switching procedures.

Step 8 If no signal failures exist on terminations, measure power levels to verify that the budget loss is within the parameters of the receiver. See the "1.12.3  Optical Card Transmit and Receive Levels" section on page 1-143 for non-DWDM card levels and refer to the Cisco ONS 15454 SDH Reference Manual for DWDM card levels.

Step 9 If budget loss is within parameters, ensure that fiber connectors are securely fastened and properly terminated. For more information refer to Chapter 2, "Install Cards and Fiber-Optic Cables," in the Cisco ONS 15454 SDH Procedure Guide.

Step 10 If fiber connectors are properly fastened and terminated, complete the "Reset an Active TCC2/TCC2P and Activate the Standby Card" procedure.

Wait ten minutes to verify that the card you reset completely reboots and becomes the standby card.

Resetting the active TCC2/TCC2P switches control to the standby TCC2/TCC2P. If the alarm clears when the ONS 15454 SDH node switches to the standby TCC2/TCC2P, the user can assume that the previously active card is the cause of the alarm.

Step 11 If the TCC2/TCC2P reset does not clear the alarm, delete the problematic SDCC termination:

a. From card view, click View > Go to Previous View if you have not already done so.

a. Click the Provisioning > Comm Channels > SDCC tabs.

b. Highlight the problematic DCC termination.

c. Click Delete.

d. Click Yes in the Confirmation Dialog box.

Step 12 Recreate the SDCC termination. Refer to the Cisco ONS 15454 SDH Procedure Guide Chapter 5, "Turn Up Network," for instructions.

Step 13 Verify that both ends of the DCC have been recreated at the optical ports.

Step 14 If the alarm has not cleared, log into the Technical Support Website at http://www.cisco.com/techsupport for more information or log into http://www.cisco.com/warp/public/687/Directory/DirTAC.shtml to obtain a directory of toll-free Technical Support numbers for your country.

2.7.73  ERROR-CONFIG

Default Severity: Minor (MN), Non-Service Affecting (NSA)

Logical Object: EQPT

The Error in Startup Configuration alarm applies to the ML-Series Ethernet cards. These cards process startup configuration files line by line. If one or more lines cannot be executed, the error causes the ERROR-CONFIG alarm. ERROR-CONFIG is not caused by hardware failure.

The typical reasons for an errored startup file are:

The user stored the configuration for one type of ML-Series card in the database and then installed another type in its slot.

The configuration file contained a syntax error on one of the lines.


Note For information about provisioning the ML-Series Ethernet cards from the Cisco IOS interface, refer to the Ethernet Card Software Feature and Configuration Guide for the Cisco ONS 15454, Cisco ONS 15454 SDH, and Cisco ONS 15327.


Clear the ERROR-CONFIG Alarm


Step 1 If you have a different type of ML-Series card specified in the startup configuration file than what you have installed, create the correct startup configuration.

Follow the card provisioning instructions in the Ethernet Card Software Feature and Configuration Guide for the Cisco ONS 15454, Cisco ONS 15454 SDH, and Cisco ONS 15327.

Step 2 Upload the configuration file to the TCC2/TCC2P:

a. In node view, right-click the ML-Series card graphic.

b. Choose IOS Startup Config from the shortcut menu.

c. Click Local > TCC and navigate to the file location in the Open dialog box.

Step 3 Complete the "Reset a Traffic Card in CTC" procedure.

Step 4 If the alarm does not clear or if your configuration file was correct according to the installed card, start an Cisco IOS CLI for the card:

a. Right click the ML-Series card graphic in node view.

b. Choose Open IOS Connection from the shortcut menu.


Note Open IOS Connection is not available unless the ML-Series card is physically installed in the shelf.


Follow the card provisioning instructions in the Ethernet Card Software Feature and Configuration Guide for the Cisco ONS 15454, Cisco ONS 15454 SDH, and Cisco ONS 15327 to correct the errored configuration file line.

Step 5 Execute the following CLI command:

copy run start

The command copies the new card configuration into the database and clears the alarm.

2.7.75  E-W-MISMATCH

Default Severity: Major (MJ), Service-Affecting (SA)

Logical Object: STMN

A Procedural Error Misconnect East/West Direction alarm occurs when nodes in a ring have an east slot misconnected to another east slot or a west slot misconnected to another west slot. In most cases, the user did not connect the fibers correctly or the ring provisioning plan was flawed. You can physically reconnect the cable to the correct slots to clear the E-W-MISMATCH alarm. Alternately, you can delete and recreate the span in CTC to change the west line and east line designations. The CTC method clears the alarm, but could change the traditional east-west node connection pattern of the ring.


Note The E-W-MISMATCH alarm also appears during the initial setup of a ring with its east-west slots and ports configured correctly. In this instance, the alarm clears itself shortly after the ring setup is complete.



Note The lower-numbered slot on a node is traditionally labeled as the west slot. The higher numbered slot is traditionally labeled as the east slot. For example, Slot 6 is West and Slot 12 is East.



Note The physical switch procedure is the recommend method of clearing the E-W-MISMATCH alarm. The physical switch method reestablishes the logical pattern of connection in the ring. However, you can also use CTC to recreate the span and identify the misconnected slots as east and west. The CTC method is useful when the misconnected node is not geographically near the troubleshooter.


Clear the E-W-MISMATCH Alarm with a Physical Switch


Step 1 Diagram the ring setup, including nodes and spans, on a piece of paper or white board.

Step 2 In node view, click View > Go to Network View.

Step 3 Label each of the nodes on the diagram with the same name that appears on the network map.

Step 4 Right-click each span to display the node name/slot/port for each end of the span.

Step 5 Label the span ends on the diagram with the same information. For example, with Node1/Slot12/Port1—Node2/Slot6/Port1 (2F MS-SPRing STM-16, Ring Name=0), label the end of the span that connects Node 1 and Node 2 at the Node 1 end as Slot 12/Port 1. Label the Node 2 end of that same span Slot 6/ Port 1.

Step 6 Repeat Steps 4 and 5 for each span on your diagram.

Step 7 Label the highest slot at each node east and the lowest slot at each node west.

Step 8 Examine the diagram. You should see a clockwise pattern of west slots connecting to east slots for each span. Refer to the Cisco ONS 15454 SDH Procedure Guide Chapter 2, "Install Cards and Fiber-Optic Cable," for more information about configuring the system.

Step 9 If any span has an east-to-east or west-to-west connection, physically switching the fiber connectors from the card that does not fit the pattern to the card that continues the pattern should clear the alarm.


Warning On the OC192 LR/STM64 LH 1550 card, the laser is on when the card is booted and the safety key is in the on position (labeled 1). The port does not have to be in service for the laser to be on. The laser is off when the safety key is off (labeled 0). Statement 293



Warning Invisible laser radiation could be emitted from the end of the unterminated fiber cable or connector. Do not stare into the beam directly with optical instruments. Viewing the laser output with certain optical instruments (for example, eye loupes, magnifiers, and microscopes) within a distance of 100 mm could pose an eye hazard. Statement 1056

2.7.81  FAILTOSW

Default Severity: Not Alarmed (NA), Non-Service Affecting (NSA)

Logical Objects: 2R, EQPT, ESCON, FC, GE, ISC, STMN, TRUNK

The Failure to Switch to Protection condition occurs when a working electrical card cannot switch to the protect card in a protection group because another working electrical card with a higher-priority alarm has switched to the protect card.

Clear the FAILTOSW Condition


Step 1 Look up and troubleshoot the higher-priority alarm. Clearing the higher-priority condition frees the card and clears the FAILTOSW.


Note A higher-priority alarm is an alarm raised on the working electrical card using the 1:N card protection group. The working electrical card is reporting an alarm but not reporting a FAILTOSW condition.


Step 2 If the condition does not clear, replace the working electrical card that is reporting the higher priority alarm by following the "Physically Replace a Traffic Card" procedure. This card is the working electrical card using the protect card and not reporting FAILTOSW.

Replacing the working electrical card that is reporting the higher-priority alarm allows traffic to revert to the working slot and the card reporting the FAILTOSW to switch to the protect card.


Note Removing a card that currently carries traffic on one or more ports can cause a traffic hit. To avoid this, perform an external switch if a switch has not already occurred. See the "Protection Switching, Lock Initiation, and Clearing" section for commonly used traffic-switching procedures.



Note When you replace a card with an identical type of card, you do not need to make any changes to the database.


Step 3 If the condition does not clear, log into the Cisco Technical Support Website at http://www.cisco.com/techsupport for more information or log into http://www.cisco.com/warp/public/687/Directory/DirTAC.shtml to obtain a directory of toll-free Technical Support numbers for your country.

Default Severity: Not Alarmed (NA), Non-Service Affecting (NSA)

Logical Object: VCMON-HP

The Failure to Switch to Protection High Order Path condition occurs when an active STM-N card carrying high-order (VC-4) traffic cannot switch to the standby card because another electrical (traffic) card with a higher priority alarm is switched over and is monopolizing the card.

Clear the FAILTOSW-HO Condition


Step 1 Look up and clear the higher priority alarm. Clearing this alarm frees the standby card and clears the FAILTOSW-HO condition.


Note A higher priority alarm is an alarm raised on the active STM-N card using the protection group. The active STM-N card is reporting an alarm, but not reporting a FAILTOSW-HO condition.


Step 2 If the condition does not clear, replace the active STM-N card that is reporting the higher priority alarm. Complete the "Physically Replace a Traffic Card" procedure. Replacing the active STM-N card that is reporting the higher priority alarm allows traffic to revert to the active slot. The standby card is freed to take over traffic from the card that reported the lower priority alarm and the FAILTOSW-HO condition.


Caution Removing a card that currently carries traffic on one or more ports can cause a traffic hit. To avoid this, perform an external switch if a switch has not already occurred. Refer to the Cisco ONS 15454 SDH Procedure Guide Chapter 15, "Maintain the Node," for information.


Note When you replace a card with an identical type of card, you do not need to make any changes to the database.

b. Double-click the card in CTC to display the card view.

c. Click the Provisioning > Line tabs.

d. Verify that the Admin State column lists the port as Unlocked.

e. If the Admin State column lists the port as Locked, maintenance or Locked, disabled, click the column and choose Unlocked. Click Apply.

Step 7 If the STM-N cards are active and in service, verify fiber continuity to the ports on the recorded cards.


Note To verify fiber continuity, follow site practices.


Step 8 If fiber continuity to the ports is okay, use an optical test set to verify that a valid signal exists on the line.

For specific procedures to use the test set equipment, consult the manufacturer. Test the line as close to the receiving card as possible.


Caution Using an optical test set disrupts service on the STM-N card. It could be necessary to manually switch traffic carrying circuits over to a protection path. Refer to the "Protection Switching, Lock Initiation, and Clearing" section for commonly used switching procedures.

Step 9 If the signal is valid, clean the fiber according to site practice. If no site practice exists, complete the procedure for cleaning optical connectors in Chapter 15, "Maintain the Node," of the Cisco ONS 15454 SDH Procedure Guide.

Step 10 If cleaning the fiber does not clear the condition, verify that the power level of the optical signal is within the STM-N card receiver specifications. The "1.12.3  Optical Card Transmit and Receive Levels" section on page 1-143 lists these specifications.

Step 11 Repeat Steps 7 through 10 for any other ports on the card.

Step 12 If the optical power level for all STM-N cards is within specifications, complete the "Physically Replace a Traffic Card" procedure for the protect standby STM-N card.


Caution Removing a card that currently carries traffic on one or more ports can cause a traffic hit. To avoid this, perform an external switch if a switch has not already occurred. See the "Protection Switching, Lock Initiation, and Clearing" section for commonly used traffic-switching procedures.


Note When you replace a card with an identical type of card, you do not need to make any changes to the database.


Step 13 If the condition does not clear after you replace the MS-SPRing cards on the node one by one, repeat
Steps 4 through 12 for each of the nodes in the ring.

Step 14 If the condition does not clear, log into the Cisco Technical Support Website at http://www.cisco.com/techsupport for more information or log into http://www.cisco.com/warp/public/687/Directory/DirTAC.shtml to obtain a directory of toll-free Technical Support numbers for your country.


2.7.85  FAILTOSWS

Default Severity: Not Alarmed (NA), Non-Service Affecting (NSA)

Logical Object: STMN

The Failure to Switch to Protection Span condition signals an APS span switch failure. For a four-fiber MS-SPRing, a failed span switch initiates a ring switch. If the ring switch occurs, the FAILTOSWS condition does not appear. If the ring switch does not occur, the FAILTOSWS condition appears. FAILTOSWS clears when one of the following situations occurs:

A physical card pull of the active TCC2/TCC2P card (done under the supervision of Cisco Technical Support).

A node power cycle.

A higher priority event such as an external switch command.

The next span switch succeeds.

The cause of the APS switch such as the "SD (DS3, E1, E3, E4, STM1E, STMN, VCTRM-LP)" condition on page 2-212 or the "SF (DS3, E1, E3, E4, STMN, VCTRM-LP)" condition on page 2-216 clears.

2.7.87  FC-NO-CREDITS

Default Severity: Major (MJ), Service-Affecting (SA)

Logical Objects: FC, FCMR

The Fibre Channel Distance Extension Credit Starvation alarm occurs on storage access networking (SAN) Fibre Channel/Fiber Connectivity (FICON) FC_MR-4 cards when the congestion prevents the generic framing procedure (GFP) transmitter from sending frames to the FC_MR-4 card port. for example, the alarm can be raised when an operator configures a card to autodetect framing credits but the card is not connected to an interoperable FC-SW-standards-based Fibre Channel/FICON port.

FC-NO-CREDITS is raised only if transmission is completely prevented. (If traffic is slowed but still passing, this alarm is not raised.) The alarm is raised in conjunction with the GFP-NO-BUFFERS alarm. For example, if the FC-NO-CREDITS alarm is generated at an FC_MR-4 data port, a GFP-NO-BUFFERS alarm might be raised at the upstream remote FC_MR-4 data port.

Clear the FC-NO-CREDITS Alarm


Step 1 If the port is connected to a Fibre Channel/FICON switch, make sure it is configured for interoperation mode. Follow manufacturer instructions for this function.

Step 2 If the port is not connected to a switch, turn off Autodetect credits:

a. Double-click the FC_MR-4 card to display the card view.

b. Click Provisioning > Port > General.

2.7.88  FE-AIS

Default Severity: Not Alarmed (NA), Non-Service Affecting (NSA)

Logical Objects: DS3, E3

The Far-End AIS condition accompanies the "AIS" condition on page 2-23 at the far-end node. An AIS usually occurs in conjunction with a downstream "LOS (STM1E, STMN)" alarm on page 2-146.

Generally, any AIS is a special SDH signal that communicates to the receiving node when the transmit node does not send a valid signal. AIS is not considered an error. It is raised by the receiving node on each input when it sees the AIS instead of a real signal. In most cases when this condition is raised, an upstream node is raising an alarm to indicate a signal failure; all nodes downstream from it only raise some type of AIS. This condition clears when you resolved the problem on the upstream node.

Clear the FE-AIS Condition


Step 1 Complete the "Clear the AIS Condition" procedure.

Step 2 If the condition does not clear, log into the Cisco Technical Support Website at http://www.cisco.com/techsupport for more information or log into http://www.cisco.com/warp/public/687/Directory/DirTAC.shtml to obtain a directory of toll-free Technical Support numbers for your country.

2.7.138  GFP-EX-MISMATCH

Default Severity: Major (MJ), Service-Affecting (SA)

Logical Objects: FCMR, GFP-FAC, ML100T, ML1000

The GFP Extension Header Mismatch alarm is raised on Fibre Channel/FICON cards when it receives frames with an extension header that is not null. The alarm occurs when a provisioning error causes all GFP frames to be dropped for 2.5 seconds.

The user needs to ensure both end ports are sending null extension headers for a GFP frame. An FC_MR-4 card always sends a null extension header, so if the equipment is connected to other vendors' equipment, those need to be provisioned appropriately.

Clear the GFP-EX-MISMATCH Alarm


Step 1 Ensure that the vendor equipment is provisioned to send a null extension header in order to interoperate with the FC_MR-4 card. (The FC_MR-4 card always sends a null extension header.)

Step 2 If the GFP-EX-MISMATCH alarm does not also clear, log into the Technical Support Website at http://www.cisco.com/techsupport for more information or log into http://www.cisco.com/warp/public/687/Directory/DirTAC.shtml to obtain a directory of toll-free Technical Support numbers for your country in order to report a service-affecting problem.

The GFP Fibre Channel Distance Extension Buffer Starvation alarm is raised on Fibre Channel/FICON card ports supporting GFP and the distance extension protocol when the GFP transmitter cannot send GFP frames due to lack of remote GFP receiver buffers. This occurs when the remote GFP-T receiver experiences congestion and is unable to send frames over the Fibre Channel/FICON link.

This alarm might be raised in conjunction with the FC-NO-CREDITS alarm. For example, if the FC-NO-CREDITS alarm is generated at an FC_MR-4 data port, a GFP-NO-BUFFERS alarm might be raised at the upstream remote FC_MR-4 data port.

Clear the GFP-NO-BUFFERS Alarm


Step 1 Complete the "Clear the FC-NO-CREDITS Alarm" procedure.

Step 2 If the GFP-CSF alarm does not also clear, log into the Technical Support Website at http://www.cisco.com/techsupport for more information or log into http://www.cisco.com/warp/public/687/Directory/DirTAC.shtml to obtain a directory of toll-free Technical Support numbers for your country in order to report a service-affecting problem.


2.7.141  GFP-UP-MISMATCH

Default Severity: Major (MJ), Service-Affecting (SA)

Logical Objects: FCMR, GFP-FAC, ML100T, ML1000

The GFP User Payload Mismatch is raised against Fibre Channel/FICON ports supporting GFP. It occurs when the received frame user payload identifier (UPI) does not match the transmitted UPI and all frames are dropped. The alarm is caused by a provisioning error, such as the port media type not matching the remote port media type. For example, the local port media type could be set to Fibre Channel 1Gig or Fibre Channel 2 Gig and the remote port media type could be set to FICON 1 Gig or FICON 2 Gig.

Clear the GFP-UP-MISMATCH Alarm


Step 1 Ensure that the transmit port and receive port are provisioned the same way for distance extension:

a. Double-click the card to display the card view.

b. Click the Provisioning > Port > Distance Extension tabs.

c. Check the check box in the Enable Distance Extension column.

2.7.144  HI-LASERBIAS

Default Severity: Minor (MN), Non-Service Affecting (NSA) for 2R, ESCON, FC, GE, ISC, STMN, TRUNK; Not Alarmed (NA), Non-Service Affecting (NSA) for PPM

Logical Objects: 2R, ESCON, FC, GE, ISC, PPM, STMN, TRUNK

The Equipment High Transmit Laser Bias Current alarm is raised against TXP_MR_10G, TXP_MR_2.5G, TXPP_MR_2.5G, TXP_MR_10E, or MXP_2.5G_10G card laser performance. The alarm indicates that the card laser has reached the maximum laser bias tolerance.

The laser bias ratio typically starts at about 30 percent of the manufacturer maximum laser bias specification and increases as the laser ages. If the HI-LASERBIAS alarm threshold is set at 100 percent of the maximum, the laser can no longer be used. If the threshold is set at 90 percent of the maximum, the card is still usable for several weeks or months before it needs to be replaced.

Clear the HI-LASERBIAS Alarm


Step 1 Complete the "Clear the LASEREOL Alarm" procedure. Replacement is not urgent and can be scheduled during a maintenance window.


Caution Removing a card that currently carries traffic on one or more ports can cause a traffic hit. To avoid this, perform an external switch if a switch has not already occurred. See the "Protection Switching, Lock Initiation, and Clearing" section for commonly used traffic-switching procedures.


Note When you replace a card with an identical type of card, you do not need to make any changes to the database.


Step 2 If the alarm does not clear, log into the Cisco Technical Support Website at http://www.cisco.com/techsupport for more information or log into http://www.cisco.com/warp/public/687/Directory/DirTAC.shtml to obtain a directory of toll-free Technical Support numbers for your country.


2.7.145  HI-LASERTEMP

Default Severity: Minor (MN), Non-Service Affecting (NSA) for STMN; Not Alarmed (NA), Non-Service Affecting (NSA) for PPM

Logical Objects: PPM, STMN

The Equipment High Laser Optical Transceiver Temperature alarm applies to the TXP and MXP cards. HI-LASERTEMP occurs when the internally measured transceiver temperature exceeds the card setting by 35.6 degrees F (2 degrees C). A laser temperature change affects the transmitted wavelength.

When the TXP or MXP card raises this alarm, the laser is automatically shut off. The "LOS (STM1E, STMN)" alarm on page 2-146 is raised at the far-end node and the "DSP-FAIL" alarm on page 2-66 is raised at the near end.

Clear the HI-LASERTEMP Alarm


Step 1 In node view, double-click the card to display the card view.

Step 2 Click the Performance > Optics PM tabs.

Step 3 Verify the card laser temperature levels. Maximum, minimum, and average laser temperatures are shown in the Current column entries in the Laser Temp rows.

Step 4 Complete the "Reset a Traffic Card in CTC" procedure for the reporting MXP or TXP card.

Step 5 If the alarm does not clear, complete the "Physically Replace a Traffic Card" procedure for the reporting MXP or TXP card.

Step 6 If the alarm does not clear, log into the Technical Support Website at http://www.cisco.com/techsupport for more information or log into http://www.cisco.com/warp/public/687/Directory/DirTAC.shtml to obtain a directory of toll-free Technical Support numbers for your country.


2.7.146  HI-RXPOWER

Default Severity: Minor (MN), Non-Service Affecting (NSA)

Logical Objects: 2R, ESCON, FC, GE, ISC, STMN, TRUNK

The Equipment High Receive Power alarm is an indicator of the optical signal power that is transmitted to the TXP_MR_10G, TXP_MR_2.5G, TXPP_MR_2.5G, TXP_MR_10E, or MXP_2.5G_10G card. HI-RXPOWER occurs when the measured optical power of the received signal exceeds the threshold. The threshold value is user-provisionable.

Clear the HI-RXPOWER Alarm


Step 1 Find out whether the gain (the amplification power) of any amplifiers has been changed. The change also causes channel power to need adjustment.

Step 2 Find out whether channels have been dropped from the fiber. Increasing or decreasing channels can affect power. If channels have been dropped, the power levels of all channels have to be adjusted.


Note If the card is part of an amplified DWDM system, dropping channels on the fiber affects the transmission power of each channel more than it would in an unamplified system.


Step 3 At the transmit end of the errored circuit, decrease the transmit power level within safe limits.

Step 4 If neither of these problems caused the HI-RXPOWER alarm, there is a slight possibility that another wavelength is drifting on top of the alarmed signal. In this case, the receiver gets signals from two transmitters at once and data alarms would be present. If wavelengths are drifting, the data is garbled and receive power increases by about +3 dBm.

Step 5 If the alarm does not clear, add fiber attenuators to the receive ports. Start with low-resistance attenuators and use stronger ones as needed, depending on factors such as the transmission distance according to standard practice.

Step 6 If the alarm does not clear, and no faults are present on the other port(s) of the transmit or receive card, use a known-good loopback cable to complete the "1.5.1  Perform a Facility (Line) Loopback on a Source-Node MXP/TXP/FC_MR Port" procedure on page 1-81 and test the loopback.

Step 7 If a port is bad and you need to use all the port bandwidth, complete the "Physically Replace a Traffic Card" procedure. If the port is bad but you can move the traffic to another port, replace the card at the next available maintenance window.


Caution Removing a card that currently carries traffic on one or more ports can cause a traffic hit. To avoid this, perform an external switch if a switch has not already occurred. See the "Protection Switching, Lock Initiation, and Clearing" section for commonly used traffic-switching procedures.


Note When you replace a card with an identical type of card, you do not need to make any changes to the database.

2.7.150  HP-ENCAP-MISMATCH

Default Severity: Major (MJ), Service-Affecting (SA)

Logical Object: VCTRM-HP

The High-Order Path Encapsulation C2 Byte Mismatch alarm applies to ML-Series Ethernet cards. It occurs when the first three following conditions are met and one of the last two is false:

The received C2 byte is not 0x00 (unequipped).

The received C2 byte is not a PDI value.

The received C2 does not match the expected C2.

The expected C2 byte is not 0x01 (equipped unspecified).

The received C2 byte is not 0x01 (equipped unspecified).

(This is in contrast to HP-PLM, which must meet all five criteria.) For an HP-ENCAP-MISMATCH to be raised, there is a mismatch between the received and expected C2 byte, with either the expected byte or received byte value being 0x01.

An example situation that would raise HP-ENCAP-MISMATCH is if a circuit created between two ML-Series cards has GFP framing provisioned on one end and high-level data link control (HDLC) framing with LEX encapsulation provisioned on the other. The GFP framing card transmits and expects a C2 byte of 0x1B, while the HDLC framing card transmits and expects a C2 byte of 0x01.

A mismatch between the transmit and receive cards on any of the following parameters can cause the alarm:

Mode (HDLC, GFP-F)

Encapsulation (LEX, HDLC, PPP)

CRC size (16 or 32)

Scrambling state (on or off)

This alarm is demoted by a path label mismatch (PLM) such as LP-PLM.


Note By default, an HP-ENCAP-MISMATCH alarm causes an ML-Series card data link to go down. This behavior can be modified using the command-line interface (CLI) command no pos trigger defect encap.



Note For more information about the ML-Series Ethernet card, refer to the Ethernet Card Software Feature and Configuration Guide for the Cisco ONS 15454, Cisco ONS 15454 SDH, and Cisco ONS 15327.


Clear the HP-ENCAP-MISMATCH Alarm


Step 1 Ensure that the correct framing mode is in use on the receiving card:

a. In node view, double-click the ML-Series card to display the card view.

b. Click the Provisioning > Card tabs.

c. In the Mode drop-down list, ensure that the correct mode (GFP or HDLC) is selected. If it is not, choose it and click Apply.

Step 2 Ensure that the correct framing mode is in use on the transmit card, and that it is identical to the framing mode used on the receiving card:

a. In node view, double-click the ML-Series card to display the card view.

b. Click the Provisioning > Card tabs.

c. In the Mode drop-down list, ensure that the same mode (GFP or HDLC) is selected. If it is not, choose it and click Apply.

Step 3 If the alarm does not clear, use the ML-Series card CLI to ensure that the remaining settings are correctly configured:

Encapsulation

CRC size

Scrambling state

2.7.155  IMPROPRMVL

Default Severity: Critical (CR), Service-Affecting (SA for active card)

Logical Objects: EQPT, PPM

The Improper Removal alarm for equipment occurs when a card is physically removed from its slot before being deleted from CTC. The card does not need to be in service to cause the IMPROPRMVL alarm; CTC only has to recognize that the card is not present. The alarm does not appear if you delete the card from CTC before you physically remove the card from the node. For PPM, the alarm occurs if you provision a PPM but no physical module is inserted on the port.


Caution Do not remove a card during a card reboot. If CTC begins to reboot a card before you remove it, allow the card to finish rebooting. After the card reboots, delete the card in CTC again and physically remove the card before it begins to reboot.


Note CTC gives the user approximately 15 seconds to physically remove the card before CTC begins a card reboot.



Note It can take up to 30 minutes for software to be updated on a standby TCC2/TCC2P card.



Note When a MIC-A/P card is removed from the shelf, no IMPROPRMVL alarm is reported for that card. The FMEC to the left side of the MIC-A/P also may also disappear from view in CTC. This functions as designed. The MIC-A/P card provides a communication channel to the other FMEC. When the MIC card is removed, the communication channel is no longer available and consequently, the other FMEC is assumed not to be present. The disappeared FMEC is rediscovered when the MIC-A/P is reinserted.


Clear the IMPROPRMVL Alarm


Step 1 In node view, right-click the card reporting the IMPROPRMVL.

Step 2 Choose Delete from the shortcut menu.


Note CTC does not allow you to delete the reporting card if the card is in service, has a circuit mapped to it, is paired in a working protection scheme, has DCC enabled, or is used as a timing reference.

Step 2 If the alarm does not clear, log into the Cisco Technical Support Website at http://www.cisco.com/techsupport for more information or log into http://www.cisco.com/warp/public/687/Directory/DirTAC.shtml to obtain a directory of toll-free Technical Support numbers for your country.


2.7.168  LASEREOL

Default Severity: Minor (MN), Non-Service Affecting (NSA)

Logical Object: STMN

The Laser Approaching End of Life alarm applies to TXP_MR_10G, TXP_MR_2.5G, TXPP_MR_2.5G, TXP_MR_10E, and MXP_2.5G_10G cards. It is typically accompanied by the "HI-LASERBIAS" alarm on page 2-112. It is an indicator that the laser in the card must be replaced. How soon the replacement must happen depends upon the HI-LASERBIAS threshold. If the threshold is set under 100 percent, the laser replacement can usually be done during a maintenance window. But if the HI-LASERBIAS threshold is set at 100 percent and is accompanied by data errors, the card must be replaced sooner.

Clear the LASEREOL Alarm


Step 1 Complete the "Physically Replace a Traffic Card" procedure.


Caution Removing a card that currently carries traffic on one or more ports can cause a traffic hit. To avoid this, perform an external switch if a switch has not already occurred. See the "Protection Switching, Lock Initiation, and Clearing" section for commonly used traffic-switching procedures.


Note When you replace a card with an identical type of card, you do not need to make any changes to the database.

2.7.170  LCAS-CRC

Default Severity: Minor (MN), Non-Service Affecting (NSA)

Logical Objects: VCTRM-HP, VCTRM-LP

The Link Capacity Adjustment Scheme (LCAS) Control Word CRC Failure condition is raised against ML-Series Ethernet cards. It occurs when there is an equipment, path, or provisioning error on the virtual concatenation group (VCG) that causes consecutive 2.5 second CRC failures in the LCAS control word.

The condition can occur if an LCAS-enabled node (containing ML-Series cards) transmitting to another LCAS-enabled node delivers faulty traffic due to an equipment or SDH path failure. Transmission errors would also be reflected in CV-P, ES-P, or SES-P performance monitoring statistics. If these errors do not exist, an equipment failure is indicated.

If LCAS is not supported on the peer node, the condition does not clear.

LCAS-CRC can also occur if the VCG source node is not LCAS-enabled, but the receiving node does have the capability enabled. Both source and destination nodes must have LCAS enabled. Otherwise, the LCAS-CRC condition persists on the VCG.

Clear the LCAS-CRC Condition


Step 1 Look for and clear any associated equipment failures, such as the EQPT alarm, on the receive node or transmit node.

Step 2 Look for and clear any bit error rate alarms at the transmit node.

Step 3 If no equipment or SDH path errors exist, ensure that the remote node has LCAS enabled on the circuit:

Step 4 In node view, click the Circuit tab.

Step 5 Choose the VCAT circuit and click Edit.

Step 6 In the Edit Circuit window, click the General tab.

Step 7 Verify that the Mode column says LCAS.

Step 8 If the column does not say LCAS, complete the "Delete a Circuit" procedure and recreate it in LCAS mode using the instructions in the Ethernet Card Software Feature and Configuration Guide for the Cisco ONS 15454, Cisco ONS 15454 SDH, and Cisco ONS 15327.

Step 9 If the condition does not clear, log into the Technical Support Website at http://www.cisco.com/techsupport for more information or log into http://www.cisco.com/warp/public/687/Directory/DirTAC.shtml to obtain a directory of toll-free Technical Support numbers for your country.


2.7.171  LCAS-RX-FAIL

Default Severity: Not Alarmed (NA), Non-Service Affecting (NSA)

Logical Objects: VCTRM-HP, VCTRM-LP

The LCAS VCG Member Receive-Side-In Fail condition is raised against FC_MR-4 cards and ML-Series Ethernet cards with LCAS-enabled VCG.


Note ML-Series cards are LCAS-enabled. ML-Series and FC_MR-4 cards are SW-LCAS enabled.


LCAS VCGs treat failures unidirectionally, meaning that failures of the transmit or receive points occur independently of each other. The LCAS-RX-FAIL condition can occur on the receive side of an LCAS VCG member for the following reasons:

SDH path failure (a unidirectional failure as seen by the receive side).

VCAT member is set out of group at the transmit side, but is set in group at the receive side.

VCAT member does not exist at the transmit side but does exist and is in group at the receive side.

The condition can be raised during provisioning operations on LCAS VCGs but should clear when the provisioning is completed.

Software-enabled LCAS VCGs treat failure bidirectionally, meaning that both directions of a VCG member are considered failed if either transmit or receive fails. The LCAS-RX-FAIL condition is raised on these VCG members when a member receive side fails due to a SDH path failure.

Clear the LCAS-RX-FAIL Condition


Step 1 Check for and clear any line or path alarms.

Step 2 If the condition does not clear, log into the Technical Support Website at http://www.cisco.com/techsupport for more information or log into http://www.cisco.com/warp/public/687/Directory/DirTAC.shtml to obtain a directory of toll-free Technical Support numbers for your country.

Default Severity: Not Alarmed (NA), Non-Service Affecting (NSA)

Logical Objects: VCTRM-HP, VCTRM-LP

The LCAS VCG Member Transmit-Side-In Add State condition is raised against ML-Series Ethernet cards when the transmit side of an LCAS VCG member is in the add state. The condition clears after provisioning is completed.


Note LCAS-TX-ADD is an informational condition and does not require troubleshooting.


2.7.173  LCAS-TX-DNU

Default Severity: Not Alarmed (NA), Non-Service Affecting (NSA)

Logical Objects: VCTRM-HP, VCTRM-LP

The LCAS VCG Member Tx Side In Do Not Use condition is raised on FC_MR-4 cards and ML-Series Ethernet cards when the Tx side of an LCAS VCG member is in the do-not use state. For a unidirectional failure, this condition is only raised at the source node.

The node reporting this condition likely reports an HP-RFI alarm, and the remote node likely reports a path alarm such as MS-AIS or "HP-UNEQ" alarm on page 2-120.


Note LCAS-TX-DNU is an informational condition and does not require troubleshooting.


2.7.174  LKOUTPR-R

2.7.180  LOA

Default Severity: Critical (CR), Service-Affecting (SA)

Logical Object: VCG

The Loss of Alignment on a VCG is a VCAT member alarm. (VCAT member circuits are independent circuits that are concatenated from different time slots into a higher-rate signal.) The alarm occurs when members of a VCG travel over different paths in the network (due to initial operator provisioning or to protection or restoration events) and the differential delays between the paths cannot be recovered by terminating hardware buffers.


Note This alarm occurs only if you provision circuits outside of CTC, such as by using TL1.


Clear the LOA Alarm

2.7.181  LOCKOUTOFPR

The Lockout of Protection condition is not supported in this release. It is reserved for future development.

2.7.182  LOCKOUT-REQ

Default Severity: Not Alarmed (NA), Non-Service Affecting (NSA)

Logical Objects: 2R, EQPT, ESCON, FC, GE, ISC, STMN, TRUNK, VCMON-HP, VCMON-LP

The Lockout Switch Request on Facility or Equipment condition occurs when a user initiates a lockout switch request for an STM-N port in a 1+1 facility protection group. This can be accomplished by locking traffic onto the working port with the LOCK ON command (thus locking it off the protect port), or locking it off the protect port with the LOCK OUT command. In either case, the protect port will show "Lockout of Protection," and the Conditions window will show the LOCKOUT-REQ condition.

A lockout prevents protection switching. Clearing the lockout again allows protection switching and clears the LOCKOUT-REQ condition.

Clear the LOCKOUT-REQ Condition


Step 1 Complete the "Clear a Card or Port Lock On or Lock Out Command" procedure.

Step 2 If the condition does not clear, log into the Cisco Technical Support Website at http://www.cisco.com/techsupport for more information or log into http://www.cisco.com/warp/public/687/Directory/DirTAC.shtml to obtain a directory of toll-free Technical Support numbers for your country.

2.7.184  LOF (BITS)

Default Severity: Major (MJ), Service-Affecting (SA)

Logical Object: BITS

The Loss of Frame (LOF) BITS alarm occurs when a port on the TCC2/TCC2P BITS input detects an LOF on the incoming BITS timing reference signal. LOF indicates that the receiving ONS 15454 SDH has lost frame delineation in the incoming data.


Note The procedure assumes that the BITS timing reference signal is functioning properly and that the alarm is not appearing during node turn-up.


Clear the LOF (BITS) Alarm


Step 1 Verify that the line framing and line coding match between the BITS input and the TCC2/TCC2P card:

a. In node view or card view, note the slot and port reporting the alarm.

b. Find the coding and framing formats of the external BITS timing source. The formats should be in the user documentation for the external BITS timing source or on the timing source itself.

c. Click the Provisioning > Timing tabs to display the General Timing window.

d. Verify that the value listed in Coding matches the coding of the BITS timing source (either B8ZS or AMI).

e. If the coding does not match, click the BITS-1 or BITS2 Coding field and choose the appropriate coding from the drop-down list.

f. Verify that the value listed in the Framing field matches the framing of the BITS timing source (either ESF or SF).

g. If the framing does not match, click the BITS-1 or BITS-2 Framing field and choose the appropriate framing from the drop-down list.


Note On the timing subtab, the binary 8-zero substitution (B8ZS) coding field is normally paired with Extended Superframe (ESF) in the Framing field and the alternate mark inversion (AMI) coding field is normally paired with SF (D4) in the Framing field.


Step 2 If the alarm does not clear when the line framing and line coding match between the BITS input and the TCC2/TCC2P card, replace the TCC2/TCC2P card by using the "Physically Replace a Traffic Card" procedure.


Caution Always use the supplied ESD wristband when working with a powered ONS 15454 SDH. Plug the wristband cable into the ESD jack located on the middle-right outside edge of the shelf assembly.

2.7.187  LO-LASERBIAS

The LO-LASERBIAS alarm is not used in this platform in this release. It is reserved for future development.

2.7.188  LO-LASERTEMP

Default Severity: Minor (MN), Non-Service Affecting (NSA)

Logical Object: STMN

The Equipment Low Laser Optical Transceiver Temperature alarm applies to the TXP and MXP cards. HI-LASERTEMP occurs when the internally measured transceiver temperature falls below the card setting by 35.6 degrees F (2 degrees C). A laser temperature change affects the transmitted wavelength. (Two degrees temperature is equivalent to about 200 picometers in the wavelength.)

When the TXP or MXP card raises this alarm, the laser is automatically shut off. The "LOS (STM1E, STMN)" alarm on page 2-146 is raised at the far-end node and the "DSP-FAIL" alarm on page 2-66 is raised at the near end. To verify the card laser temperature level, double-click the card in node view and click the Performance > Optics PM > Current PM tabs. Maximum, minimum, and average laser temperatures are shown in the Current column entries in the Laser Temp rows.

Clear the LO-LASERTEMP Alarm


Step 1 Complete the "Reset a Traffic Card in CTC" procedure for the reporting MXP or TXP card.

Step 2 If the alarm does not clear, complete the "Physically Replace a Traffic Card" procedure for the reporting MXP or TXP card.

Step 2 If the alarm does not clear, log into the Cisco Technical Support Website at http://www.cisco.com/techsupport for more information or log into http://www.cisco.com/warp/public/687/Directory/DirTAC.shtml to obtain a directory of toll-free Technical Support numbers for your country in order to report a service-affecting problem.


2.7.190  LO-RXPOWER

Default Severity: Minor (MN), Non-Service Affecting (NSA)

Logical Objects: 2R, ESCON, FC, GE, ISC, STMN, TRUNK

The Equipment Low Receive Power alarm is an indicator for TXP_MR_10G, TXP_MR_2.5G, TXPP_MR_2.5G, TXP_MR_10E, and MXP_2.5G_10G card received optical signal power. LO-RXPOWER occurs when the measured optical power of the received signal falls under the threshold. The threshold value is user-provisionable.

Clear the LO-RXPOWER Alarm


Step 1 At the transmit end of the errored circuit, increase the transmit power level within safe limits.

Step 2 Find out whether new channels have been added to the fiber. Up to 32 channels can be transmitted on the same fiber, but the number of channels affects power. If channels have been added, the power levels of all channels need to be adjusted.


Note If the card is part of an amplified DWDM system, adding channels on the fiber affects the transmission power of each channel more than it would in an unamplified system.


Step 3 Find out whether the gain (amplification power) of any amplifiers has been changed. Changing amplification also causes channel power to need adjustment.

Step 4 If the alarm does not clear, remove any receive fiber attenuators or replace them with lower-resistance attenuators.

Step 5 If the alarm does not clear, inspect and clean the receive and transmit node fiber connections according to site practice. If no site practice exists, complete the procedure in the Cisco ONS 15454 SDH Procedure Guide Chapter 15, "Maintain the Node."

Step 6 If the alarm does not clear, ensure that the fiber is not broken or damaged by testing it with an optical test set. If no test set is available, use the fiber for a facility (line) loopback on a known-good port. The error readings you get is not as precise, but you generally know whether the fiber is faulty.

For specific procedures to use the test set equipment, consult the manufacturer.

Step 7 If the alarm does not clear, and no faults are present on the other ports of the transmit or receive card, do a facility loopback on the transmit and receive ports with known-good loopback cable. Complete the Create the Facility (Line) Loopback on the Source Optical Port, page 1-40 and test the loopback.

Step 8 If a port is bad and you need to use all the port bandwidth, complete the "Physically Replace a Traffic Card" procedure. If the port is bad but you can move the traffic to another port, replace the card at the next available maintenance window.


Caution Removing a card that currently carries traffic on one or more ports can cause a traffic hit. To avoid this, perform an external switch if a switch has not already occurred. See the "Protection Switching, Lock Initiation, and Clearing" section for commonly used traffic-switching procedures.


Note When you replace a card with an identical type of card, you do not need to make any changes to the database.

2.7.194  LOS (E1, E3, E4)

Default Severity: Critical (CR), Service-Affecting (SA) for E3, E4, STMN, STM1E; Major (MJ), Service-Affecting (SA) for E1

Logical Objects: E1, E3, E4

LOS on an EC-N port occurs when a SDH receiver detects an all-zero pattern for 10 microseconds or longer. An LOS (EC-N) means that the upstream transmitter has failed. If an EC-N LOS alarm is not accompanied by additional alarms, a cabling problem is usually the cause of the alarm. The condition clears when two consecutive valid frames are received.


Note If a circuit shows a partial status when this alarm is raised, the logical circuit is in place. The circuit is able to carry traffic when the connection issue is resolved. You do not need to delete the circuit when troubleshooting this alarm.


Clear the LOS (E1, E3, E4) Alarm


Step 1 Verify cabling continuity to the port reporting the alarm.


Caution Always use the supplied electrostatic discharge wristband when working with a powered ONS 15454 SDH. Plug the wristband cable into the ESD jack located on the middle-right outside edge of the shelf assembly.


Note To verify cable continuity, follow site practices.


Step 2 If the cabling is okay, verify that the correct port is in service:

a. Confirm that the LED is correctly lit on the physical card.

A green ACT/SBY LED indicates an active card. An amber ACT/SBY LED indicates a standby card.

b. To determine whether the port is in service, double-click the card in CTC to display the card view.

c. Click the Provisioning > Line tabs.

Step 12 If the alarm does not clear, log into the Technical Support Website at http://www.cisco.com/techsupport for more information or log into http://www.cisco.com/warp/public/687/Directory/DirTAC.shtml to obtain a directory of toll-free Technical Support numbers for your country.


2.7.203  LOS-P (OCH)

Default Severity: Critical (CR), Service-Affecting (SA)

Logical Object: OCH

The Loss of Signal for Optical Channel alarm on the OCH layer applies to the channel ADD or pass-through ports on the AD-1C-xx.x, AD-2C-xx.x, AD-4C-xx.x, 32MUX-O and 32WSS-O DWDM cards.


Note For 32WSS-O cards, this alarm also applies to pass-through ports. If the LOS-P (OCH) alarm is raised against this kind of port, it means that the port does not have an optical power source directly connected to it. Follow the general troubleshooting rules stated in the chapter Network Level (inter-nodes) Troubleshooting to identify upstream alarms in the logical signal flow that could cause an LOS-P.


LOS-P (OCH) indicates a loss of receive signal when the monitored input power value has crossed the Power Failure Low threshold associated with the port. This threshold value is relative to the specific variable optical attenuation (VOA) power reference setpoint provisioned on VOA along the path.

Clear the LOS-P (OCH) Alarm


Step 1 Check the LED behavior on the physical card. A green ACT/SBY LED indicates an active card, and a red ACT/SBY LED indicates a failed card. If the LED is red, complete the "Physically Replace a Traffic Card" procedure and continue to Step 9.


Note When you replace a card with the identical type of card, you do not need to make any changes to the database apart from restoring the card's port to the IS, AINS admin state.


Step 2 Verify that there truly is a loss of received signal by completing the following steps:

a. Double-click the card to display the card view.

b. View the proper input power values by clicking one of the following tabs as appropriate:

AD-xC Provisioning > Optical Chn > Parameters

32MUX-O Provisioning > Optical Chn > Parameters

32WSS-O Provisioning > Optical Chn: Optical Connector x > Parameters

c. Display the proper Power Failure Low threshold by clicking one of the following tabs as appropriate:

AD-xC Provisioning > Optical Chn > Optics Thresholds

32MUX-O Provisioning > Optical Chn > Optics Thresholds

32WSS-O Provisioning > Optical Chn: Optical Connector x > Optics Thresholds


Tip To view the alarm thresholds (as opposed to the warning thresholds), check the Alarm check box on the Optics Thresholds tab and click Reset.


d. Compare the actual assigned Power value with the Alarm Threshold value and complete one of the following actions:

If the Power value is less than the Fail Low threshold, go to Step 3.

If the Power value is greater than the Fail Low threshold plus the alarm allowance value (default 1 dBm), complete the "Reset a Traffic Card in CTC" procedure for the card.

If the alarm does not clear, complete the "Physically Replace a Traffic Card" procedure and continue to Step 9.


Note When you replace a card with the identical type of card, you do not need to make any changes to the database apart from restoring the card's port to the IS, AINS admin state.


Step 3 Verify the fiber continuity to the port. To verify fiber continuity, follow site practices.

Step 4 In MetroPlanner, obtain the "Internal Connections" file for the node where the errored card is located. If necessary, correct the node cabling in accordance with the MP file connections list. For procedures to cable a DWDM node, refer to the Cisco ONS 15454 DWDM Installation and Operations Guide.

Step 5 If the cabling is good, verify that each involved optical signal source, including TXP, MXP or ITU-T line card trunk transmit ports, is in the IS admin state. To do this, click the following tabs as appropriate:

TXP_MR_10G Provisioning > Line > SDH

TXP_MR_10E Provisioning > Line > SDH

TXP_MR_2.5G Provisioning > Line > SDH

TXPP_MR_2.5G Provisioning > Line > STM16

MXP_MR_2.5G Provisioning > Line > STM16

MXPP_MR_2.5G Provisioning > Line > STM16

MXP_2.5G_10E Provisioning > Line > Trunk

MXP_2.5G_10G Provisioning > Line > SDH

If the port admin state is not IS, choose IS from the Admin state drop-down list. If the alarm does not clear, continue with Step 6.

Step 6 If the signal source is in IS admin state, use an optical test set to verify that the transmit laser is active. For specific procedures to use the test set equipment, consult the manufacturer.

Step 7 If the laser is active, compare the card's provisioned transmit optical power value with the expected range in the "Hardware Specifications" appendix of the Cisco ONS 15454 SDH Procedure Guide. To display the provisioned transmit optical power values, click the following tabs as appropriate:

TXP_MR_10G Performance > Optics PM > Current Values > Trunk Port

TXP_MR_10E Performance > Optics PM > Current Values > Trunk Port

MXP_2.5G_10E Performance > Optics PM > Current Values > Trunk Port

MXP_2.5G_10G Performance > Optics PM > Current Values > Trunk Port

Step 8 Use an optical test set to measure actual transmit optical power for the following cards as applicable:

TXP_MR_2.5G

TXPP_MR_2.5G

MXP_MR_2.5G

MXPP_MR_2.5G

Each ITU-T line card

If the tested optical transmit optical power is comparable to the correctly provisioned value and the expected value, go to Step 9. If the tested, actual power value is outside the specification range, complete the "Physically Replace a Traffic Card" procedure. When the newly installed card becomes active, verify that the LOS-P (OCH) alarm clears. If it does not, continue with Step 9.


Tip If a spare cards is unavailable and the transmit power still functions, you can temporarily clear the LOS-P alarm by following the general procedure to add path VOAs during startup failure located in the Cisco ONS 15454 DWDM Installation and Operations Guide.


Step 9 If the power is within the expected range, clean the alarmed port's fiber according to site practice. If no site practice exists, complete the procedure in the "Maintain the Node" chapter in the Cisco ONS 15454 SDH Procedure Guide.


Note Unplugging the fiber can cause a traffic hit. To avoid this, perform a traffic switch if possible. See the "Protection Switching, Lock Initiation, and Clearing" section for basic instructions, or refer to the "Maintain the Node" chapter in the Cisco ONS 15454 SDH Procedure Guide for more detailed information.


Step 10 If the alarm does not clear, follow the general procedure for adding path VOAs during startup failure in the Cisco ONS 15454 DWDM Installation and Operations Guide.

Step 11 If the alarm does not clear, log into the Technical Support Website at http://www.cisco.com/techsupport for more information or call Cisco TAC (1 800 553-2447) in order to report a service-affecting problem.
