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. For a comprehensive list of all conditions, refer to the Cisco ONS 15454 SDH TL1 Reference Guide. For instructions on using Transaction Language One (TL1) commands, refer to the Cisco ONS 15454 SDH TL1 Command Guide.

An alarm's troubleshooting procedure applies to both the Cisco Transport Controller (CTC) and TL1 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 "Manage Alarms" chapter of the Cisco ONS 15454 SDH Procedure Guide.

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.

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 can appear in multiple entries. 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 List by Logical Object Type

Table 2-8 lists all ONS 15454 SDH Release 6.0 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. Where appropriate, the alarm entries also contain troubleshooting procedures.


Note In a mixed network containing different types of nodes (such as ONS 15310-CL, ONS 15454 SDH, and ONS 15600), the initially displayed alarm list in the Provisioning > Alarm Profiles > Alarm Profile Editor tab lists all conditions that are 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, and 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 address, 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 could 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 (SA) 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 automatic protection switching (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 (LTE) 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 could or could 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.

Severities can 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. These custom severities are subject to the standard severity-demoting rules given in Telcordia GR-474-CORE and shown in the Alarm Hierarchy section. Procedures for customizing alarm severities are located in the "Manage Alarms" chapter of the Cisco ONS 15454 SDH Procedure Guide.

2.5.4  Alarm Hierarchy

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) as defined in Telcordia GR-474-CORE.

A path alarm can be demoted if a higher-ranking alarm is raised for the same object. For example, If an high-order path trace identifier mismatch (HP-TIM) is raised on a circuit path and then an administrative unit (AU) loss of pointer (LOP) is raised on it, the AU-LOP alarm stands and the HP-TIM closes. The path alarm hierarchy used in the ONS 15454 SDH system is shown in Table 2-9.

Table 2-9 Path Alarm Hierarchy

Priority
Condition Type

Highest

AU-AIS

AU-LOP

HP-UNEQ

Lowest

HP-TIM


Facility (port) alarms also follow a hierarchy, which means that lower-ranking alarms are closed by higher-ranking alarms. The facility alarm hierarchy used in the ONS 15454 SDH system is shown in Table 2-10.

Near-end failures and far-end failures follow different hierarchies. Near-end failures stand according to whether they are for the entire signal (LOS, LOF), facility (MS-AIS), path (AU-AIS, etc.) or VT (TU-AIS, etc.). The full hierarchy for near-end failures is shown in Table 2-11. This table is taken from Telcordia GR-253-CORE.

1 Although it is not defined as a defect or failure, all-ones VT pointer relay is also higher priority than AU-LOP. Similarly, all-ones VC pointer relay is higher priority than TU-LOP.

2 AU-LOP is also higher priority than the far-end failure MS-RFI, which does not affect the detection of any near-end failures. Similarly, TU-LOP is higher priority than LP-RF.

3 This alarm is not used in this platform in this release.


The far-end failure alarm hierarchy is shown in Table 2-12, as given in Telcordia GR-253-CORE.

2.5.5  Service Effect

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

2.5.6  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. These are listed in the "Transient Conditions" chapter.

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 could 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 of the GUI 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 "Manage Alarms" chapter of 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 "Manage Alarms" chapter in the Cisco ONS 15454 SDH Procedure Guide.


2.7.1  AIS

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

SDH Logical Objects: BITS, DS1, DS3, E1, E3, E4, FUDC, MSUDC

DWDM Logical Object: TRUNK

The Alarm Indication Signal (AIS) condition indicates that this node is detecting an alarm indication signal 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 detects 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 if there are 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

2.7.6  APC-END

For information about this alarm or condition, refer to the "Alarm Troubleshooting" chapter in the Cisco ONS 15454 DWDM Troubleshooting Guide. This guide discusses all DWDM alarms.

2.7.7  APC-OUT-OF-RANGE

For information about this alarm or condition, refer to the "Alarm Troubleshooting" chapter in the Cisco ONS 15454 DWDM Troubleshooting Guide. This guide discusses all DWDM alarms.

2.7.8  APSB

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

SDH Logical Object: STMN

The APS Channel Byte Failure alarm occurs when LTE detects protection switching byte failure or an invalid switching code in the incoming APS signal. Some older SDH nodes not manufactured by Cisco send invalid APS codes if they are configured in a 1+1 protection group with newer SDH nodes, such as the ONS 15454 SDH. These invalid codes cause an APSB alarm on an ONS 15454 SDH node.

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 could 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 the 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)

SDH 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 2-174.

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 2-84.) West port fibers must connect to east port fibers and east port fibers must connect to west port fibers. The "Install Cards and Fiber-Optic Cable" chapter in the Cisco ONS 15454 SDH Procedure Guide 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 RS-DCC Terminations" procedure to ensure that regenerator section data communications channel (RS-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)

SDH Logical Object: STMN

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 from the protect card to the working one. 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.


Note This alarm can occur on a VC_LO_PATH_TUNNEL tunnel when it does not have lower order circuits provisioned on it. It can also occur when the exercise command or a lockout is applied to a span. An externally switched span does not raise this alarm because the traffic is preempted.



Note The APSC-IMP alarm may be raised on a BLSR or MS-SPRing when a drop connection is part of a cross-connect loopback.



Note The APSC-IMP alarm may be momentarily raised on BLSR spans during PCA circuit creation or deletion across multiple nodes using CTC.



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 could 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 lies with upstream equipment and not with 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)

SDH 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 when necessary. An inconsistent APS code occurs when three consecutive frames contain nonidentical APS bytes, which in turn 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 (DS1, DS3, E1, E4, STM1E, STMN)" alarm on page 2-136, or the "APSB" alarm on page 2-32. 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

SDH 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 could 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 (SA) problem.


2.7.13  APSCNMIS

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

SDH 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 an MS-SPRing External Switching Command" procedure to clear the lockout.

2.7.14  APSIMP

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

SDH 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 APSCM alarm, but not by an AIS condition. 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. For procedures, refer to the "Turn Up Node" chapter in the Cisco ONS 15454 SDH Procedure Guide.

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.

2.7.16  APSMM

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

SDH Logical Object: STMN

An APS Mode Mismatch failure alarm occurs on STM-N cards when there is a mismatch of the protection switching schemes at the two ends of the span, such as being bidirectional at one end and unidirectional at the other. Each end of a span must be provisioned the same way: bidirectional and bidirectional, or unidirectional and unidirectional. APSMM can also occur if another vendor's equipment is provisioned as 1:N and the ONS 15454 SDH is provisioned as 1+1.

If one end is provisioned for 1+1 protection switching and the other is provisioned for SNCP protection switching, an APSMM alarm occurs in the ONS 15454 SDH that is provisioned for 1+1 protection switching.

Clear the APSMM Alarm


Step 1 For the reporting ONS 15454 SDH, display node view and verify the protection scheme provisioning by completing the following steps:

a. Click the Provisioning > Protection tabs.

b. Click the 1+1 protection group configured for the STM-N cards.

2.7.22  AU-AIS

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

SDH Logical Objects: VCMON-HP, VCTRM-HP

An 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 detects 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.

2.7.26  AU-LOP

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

SDH Logical Objects: VCMON-HP, VCTRM-HP

An AU-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 could result in hazardous radiation exposure. Statement 1057

Note For more information about MXP and TXP cards, refer to the Cisco ONS 15454 DWDM Installation and Operations Guide.


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 specific procedures to use the test set equipment, 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.

Step 5 Recreate the circuit for the correct size. For procedures, refer to the "Create Circuits and Tunnels" chapter in the Cisco ONS 15454 SDH Procedure Guide.

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 in order to report a Service-Affecting (SA) problem.


2.7.27  AUTOLSROFF

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

SDH Logical Object: STMN

DWDM Logical Object: TRUNK

The Auto Laser Shutdown alarm occurs when the STM-64 card temperature exceeds 194 degrees F (90 degrees C). The internal equipment automatically shuts down the STM-64 laser when the card temperature rises to prevent the card from self-destructing.

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


Note The severity is Minor (MN), Non-Service-Affecting (NSA) for SBY TCC2/TCC2P card.


SDH Logical Object: EQPT

The Primary Nonvolatile Backup Memory Failure alarm refers to a problem with the TCC2/TCC2P card flash memory. This alarm is raised on ACT/SBY TCC2/TCC2P cards. The alarm occurs when the TCC2/TCC2P card is in active or standby state and has one of four problems:

Failure to format a flash partition.

Failure to write a file to a flash partition.

Problem at the driver level.

Code volume fails cyclic redundancy checking (CRC, a method to verify for errors in data transmitted to the TCC2/TCC2P card).

The BKUPMEMP alarm can also cause the "EQPT" alarm on page 2-78. If the EQPT alarm is caused by BKUPMEMP, complete the following procedure to clear the BKUPMEMP and the EQPT alarm.

Clear the BKUPMEMP Alarm


Step 1 Verify that both TCC2/TCC2P cards are powered and enabled by confirming lighted ACT/SBY LEDs on the TCC2/TCC2P cards.

Step 2 Determine whether the active or standby TCC2/TCC2P card has the alarm.

Step 3 If both cards are powered and enabled, reset the TCC2/TCC2P card where the alarm is raised. If the card is the active TCC2/TCC2P card, complete the "Reset an ActiveTCC2/TCC2P Card and Activate the Standby Card" procedure.
Wait ten minutes to verify that the card you reset completely reboots and becomes the standby card. The ACT/STBY LED of this card should be amber and the newly active TCC2/TCC2P card LED should be green.
If the card is the standby TCC2/TCC2P card, complete the "Reset the Standby TCC2/TCC2P Card" procedure.

Step 4 If the reset TCC2/TCC2P card has not rebooted successfully, or the alarm has not cleared, 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.

2.7.42  CARLOSS (CE100T)

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

SDH Logical Object: CE100T

The Carrier Loss alarm is raised on CE-100T-8 cards in Mapper mode when there is a circuit failure due to link integrity. It does not get raised when a user simply puts the port in the Unlocked state. It has to be Unlocked with a circuit or loopback.


Note For more information about Ethernet cards, 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 CARLOSS (CE100T) Alarm


Step 1 Complete the "Clear the CARLOSS (G1000) Alarm" procedure. However, rather than checking for a TPTFAIL (G1000) at the end of the procedure, check for a "TPTFAIL (CE100T)" alarm on page 2-216.

Step 2 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 (SA) problem.


2.7.43  CARLOSS (E100T, E1000F)

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

SDH 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 G-Series card. The G-Series card does not use STP and is not affected by STP reestablishment.


Note For more information about Ethernet cards, 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 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 "Install Cards and Fiber-Optic Cable" chapter in the Cisco ONS 15454 SDH Procedure Guide.


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 "Install Cards and Fiber-Optic Cable" chapter in the Cisco ONS 15454 SDH Procedure Guide.

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 "Install Cards and Fiber-Optic Cable" chapter in the Cisco ONS 15454 SDH Procedure Guide.

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 the 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 vendor's equipment sits between ONS 15454 SDHs, and the open systems interconnect/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 a channel riding through the non-ONS network.

If the reporting Ethernet circuit is part of an Ethernet manual cross-connect, then the reappearing alarm could be a result of mismatched circuit sizes in the set up of the manual cross-connect. Determine this by completing the following steps. 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 are hosting the Ethernet circuit at the other end of the Ethernet manual cross-connect and complete the following substeps:

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 procedures, refer to the "Create Circuits and Tunnels" chapter in the Cisco ONS 15454 SDH Procedure Guide.

Step 9 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 (SA) problem.


2.7.44  CARLOSS (EQPT)

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

SDH 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 types.


Note For more information about provisioning MXP or TXP PPMs, refer to the "Provision Transponder and Muxponder Cards" chapter of the Cisco ONS 15454 DWDM Installation and Operations Guide. For more information about the cards themselves, refer to the "Card Reference" chapter. For more information about MRC-12 and OC192-XFP/STM64-XFP cards, refer to the "Change Card Settings" chapter of the Cisco ONS 15454 SDH Procedure Guide. For more information about Ethernet cards, 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 CARLOSS (EQPT) Alarm


Step 1 If the reporting card is an MXP, TXP, MRC-12, or OC192-XVP/STM64-XFP card in an ONS 15454 SDH node, verify the data rate configured on the PPM by completing the following steps:

a. Double-click the reporting card.

b. Click the Provisioning > Pluggable Port Modules tabs.

c. View the Pluggable Port Modules area port listing in the Actual Equipment Type column for the 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 by completing the procedure in the "Verify PC Connection to the ONS 15454 SDH (ping)" section.

Step 3 If the ping is successful, it demonstrates that an active TCP/IP connection exists. Restart CTC by completing the following steps:

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

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 "Install Cards and Fiber-Optic Cable" chapter in the Cisco ONS 15454 SDH Procedure Guide

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 "Install Cards and Fiber-Optic Cable" chapter in the Cisco ONS 15454 SDH Procedure Guide.

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 "Install Cards and Fiber-Optic Cable" chapter of the Cisco ONS 15454 SDH Procedure Guide for procedures.

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. 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 (SA) problem.


2.7.45  CARLOSS (FC)

For information about this alarm or condition, refer to the "Alarm Troubleshooting" chapter in the Cisco ONS 15454 DWDM Troubleshooting Guide. This guide discusses all DWDM alarms.

2.7.46  CARLOSS (G1000)

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

SDH 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 G-Series card can be caused by one of two situations:

The G-Series 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 G-Series port.

If a problem exists in the end-to-end path (including possibly the far-end G-Series card), the problem causes the reporting G-Series 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 G-Series card. The root cause is the problem in the end-to-end path. When the root cause is cleared, the far-end G-Series 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 2-217 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 G-Series card's end-to-end Ethernet link integrity capability. Also see the "TRMT" alarm on page 2-219 for more information about alarms that occur when a point-to-point circuit exists between two G-Series cards.

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


Note For more information about Ethernet cards, 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 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 "Install Cards and Fiber-Optic Cable" chapter in the Cisco ONS 15454 SDH Procedure Guide.


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 "Optical Card Transmit and Receive Levels" section.

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 "Install Cards and Fiber-Optic Cable" chapter in the Cisco ONS 15454 SDH Procedure Guide for procedures.

Step 7 If the alarm does not clear, and link autonegotiation is enabled on the G-Series 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 by completing the following steps:

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 2-217 is also reported, complete the "Clear the TPTFAIL (G1000) Alarm" procedure. If the TPTFAIL alarm is not raised, continue to the next step.


Note When the CARLOSS and the TPTFAIL alarms are reported, the condition could be caused by the G-Series 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 raised, determine whether a terminal (inward) loopback has been provisioned on the port by completing the following steps:

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 could be provisioned. Go to Step 11.

Step 11 If a loopback was provisioned, complete the "Clear a Non-STM Card Facility or Terminal Loopback Circuit" procedure.

On the G-Series, 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 G-Series card. Terminating the transmit laser could raise the CARLOSS alarm because the looped-back G-Series 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 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 by completing the following steps:


Note An ONS 15454 SDH Ethernet manual cross-connect is used when another vendor's equipment sits between ONS nodes, 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 a 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 are hosting the Ethernet circuit at the other end of the Ethernet manual cross-connect by completing the following substeps:

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 "Create Circuits and Tunnels" chapter in the Cisco ONS 15454 SDH Procedure Guide 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 the 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 (SA) problem.

2.7.58  CONTBUS-DISABLED

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

SDH Logical Object: EQPT

The CONTBUS-DISABLED alarm is a function of the Release 6.0 enhanced cell bus verification feature. This alarm occurs when a card is defective upon insertion into the chassis or when a card already present in the chassis becomes defective. (That is, the card fails the enhanced cell bus verification test.) The alarm persists as long as the defective card remains in the chassis. When the card is removed, CONTBUS-DISABLED will remain raised for a one-minute wait time. This wait time is designed as a guard period so that the system can distinguish this outage from a briefer card reset communication outage.

If no card is reinserted into the original slot during the wait time, the alarm clears. After this time, a different, nondefective card (not the original card) should be inserted.

When CONTBUS-DISABLED is raised, no message-oriented communication is allowed to or from this slot to the TCC2/TCC2P card (thus avoiding node communication failure).


Caution CONTBUS-DISABLED clears only when the faulty card is removed for one minute. If any card at all is reinserted before the one-minute guard period expires, the alarm does not clear.

CONTBUS-DISABLED overrides the IMPROPRMVL alarm during the one-minute wait period, but afterward IMPROPRMVL can be raised because it is no longer suppressed. IMPROPRMVL is raised after CONTBUS-DISABLED clears if the card is in the node database. If CONTBUS-DISABLED has cleared but IMPROPRMVL is still active, inserting a card will clear the IMPROPRMVL alarm.

Clear the CONTBUS-DISABLED Alarm


Step 1 If the IMPROPRMVL alarm is raised, complete the "Physically Replace a Traffic Card" procedure. (For general information about card installation, refer to the "Install Cards and Fiber-Optic Cable" chapter of the Cisco ONS 15454 SDH Procedure Guide.)

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.


2.7.59  CONTBUS-IO-A

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

SDH Logical Object: EQPT

A TCCA to Shelf A Slot Communication Failure alarm occurs when the active Slot 7 TCC2/TCC2P card (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 card. In the case of a TCC2/TCC2P card protection switch, the alarm clears after the other cards establish communication with the newly active TCC2/TCC2P card. If the alarm persists, the problem lies with the physical path of communication from the TCC2/TCC2P card to the reporting card. The physical path of communication includes the TCC2/TCC2P card, 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 2-167 for the reporting card.

Step 2 If the alarm object is any single card slot other than the standby Slot 11 TCC2/TCC2P card, 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 card, 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 ActiveTCC2/TCC2P Card 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.

2.7.61  CTNEQPT-MISMATCH

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

SDH Logical Object: EQPT

The Connection Equipment 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 could be preprovisioned in Slot 10, but another card could be physically installed.


Note Cisco does not support configurations of unmatched cross-connect cards in Slot 8 and Slot 10, although this situation could 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.)



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 "Manage Alarms" chapter in the Cisco ONS 15454 SDH Procedure Guide.


Clear the CTNEQPT-MISMATCH Condition


Step 1 Determine what kind of card is preprovisioned in the slot by completing the following steps:

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 could be provisioned for an XCVT card, which is shown in the Eqpt Type column, but a different cross-connect card could be physically present in the slot. (This card 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.

The SDH Data Communications Channel (DCC) Termination Failure alarm occurs when the ONS 15454 SDH loses its data communications channel. Although this alarm is primarily SDH, it can apply to DWDM. For example, the OSCM card can raise this alarm on its STM-1 section overhead.

The RS-DCC consists of three bytes, D1 through D3, in the SDH overhead. The bytes convey information about operation, administration, maintenance, and provisioning (OAM&P). The ONS 15454 SDH uses the DCC on the SDH section overhead to communicate network management information.


Warning Class 1 laser product. Statement 1008

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 could 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.



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


Clear the EOC Alarm


Step 1 If the "LOS (DS1, DS3)" alarm on page 2-142 is also reported, complete the "Clear the LOS (STM1E, STMN) Alarm" procedure.

Step 2 If the "SFTWDOWN" condition on page 2-198 is reported, complete the "Clear the SF (DS3, E1, E3, E4, STMN) Condition" procedure.

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


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, ensure that both ends of the fiber span have unlocked ports. Verify that the ACT/SBY LED on each card is green.

Step 4 When the LEDs on the cards are correctly illuminated, complete the "Verify or Create Node RS-DCC 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 by completing the following steps:

a. Confirm that the 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. For an STM-N card, click the Provisioning > Line tabs. For the OSCM card, click the Provisioning > STM-1 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 an 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 "Optical Card Transmit and Receive Levels" section for non-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 "Install Cards and Fiber-Optic Cables" chapter in the Cisco ONS 15454 SDH Procedure Guide.

Step 10 If fiber connectors are properly fastened and terminated, complete the "Reset an ActiveTCC2/TCC2P Card 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 card switches control to the standby TCC2/TCC2P card. If the alarm clears when the ONS 15454 SDH node switches to the standby TCC2/TCC2P card, the user can assume that the previously active card is the cause of the alarm.

Step 11 If the TCC2/TCC2P card reset does not clear the alarm, delete the problematic RS-DCC termination by completing the following steps:

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

b. Click the Provisioning > Comm Channels > RS-DCC tabs.

c. Highlight the problematic DCC termination.

d. Click Delete.

e. Click Yes in the Confirmation Dialog box.

Step 12 Recreate the RS-DCC termination. Refer to the "Turn Up Network" chapter in the Cisco ONS 15454 SDH Procedure Guide for procedures.

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. If the Technical Support technician tells you to reseat the card, complete the "Remove and Reinsert (Reseat) Any 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.

2.7.78  ERROR-CONFIG

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

SDH 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.

2.7.80  E-W-MISMATCH

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

SDH 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 the west slot. The higher numbered slot is traditionally labeled the east slot. For example, Slot 1 is West and Slot 14 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 Node 1/Slot 12/Port 1—Node 2/Slot 6/Port 1 (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 "Install Cards and Fiber-Optic Cable" chapter in the Cisco ONS 15454 SDH Procedure Guide 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

2.7.86  FAILTOSW

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

SDH Logical Objects: EQPT, STMN, VCMON-HP

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

The Failure to Switch to Protection Facility condition occurs when a working or protect electrical or optical facility switches to its companion port by using a MANUAL command. For example, if you attempt to manually switch traffic from an unused protect port to an in-service working port, the switch will fail (because traffic is already present on the working port) and you will see the FAILTOSW condition.

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 or optical card using the 1:N card protection group. The working electrical or optical card is reporting an alarm but not reporting a FAILTOSW condition.


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

Replacing the working electrical or optical 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 the 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.

Step 3 Look for alarms on STM-N cards that make up the ring or span and troubleshoot these alarms.

Step 4 If clearing other alarms does not clear the FAILTOSWR condition, log into the near-end node.

Step 5 Click the Maintenance > MS-SPRing tabs.

Step 6 Record the STM-N cards listed under West Line and East Line. Ensure that these STM-N cards and ports are active and in service by completing the following steps:

a. Verify the LED status: A green ACT/SBY LED indicates an active card. An amber ACT/SBY LED indicates a standby card.

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. To verify fiber continuity, follow site practices.

Step 8 If fiber continuity to the ports is good, 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 the "Maintain the Node" chapter 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 "Optical Card Transmit and Receive Levels" section 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 the 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.

DWDM Logical Objects: FC, TRUNK

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 could 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 the manufacturer's instructions for this function.

2.7.93  FE-AIS

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

SDH Logical Object: E3

The Far-End AIS condition accompanies the "AIS" condition on page 2-31 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 detects 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

2.7.134  GFP-NO-BUFFERS

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

SDH Logical Objects: FCMR, GFP-FAC

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 could 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 could be raised at the upstream remote FC_MR-4 data port.

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

SDH Logical Objects: CE100T, FCMR, GFP-FAC, ML100T, ML1000, MLFX

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—1 Gbps ISL or Fibre Channel—2 Gbps ISL and the remote port media type could be set to FICON—1 Gbps ISL or FICON—2 Gbps ISL.

The Equipment High Transmit Laser Bias Current alarm is raised against TXP, MXP, MRC-12, and OC192-XFP/STM64-XFP 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's 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.


Note For more information about provisioning MXP or TXP PPMs, refer to the "Provision Transponder and Muxponder Cards" chapter of the Cisco ONS 15454 DWDM Installation and Operations Guide. For more information about the cards themselves, refer to the "Card Reference" chapter.


Clear the HI-LASERBIAS Alarm


Step 1 Complete the "Physically Replace a Traffic Card" procedure during a maintenance window. (Replacement is not urgent.)


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 the 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.

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

SDH Logical Objects: EQPT, STMN

SDH Logical Object: PPM

The Equipment High Laser Optical Transceiver Temperature alarm applies to TXP, MXP, MRC-12, and OC192-XFP/STM64-XFP 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 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 2-74 is raised at the near end.


Note For more information about provisioning MXP or TXP PPMs, refer to the "Provision Transponder and Muxponder Cards" chapter of the Cisco ONS 15454 DWDM Installation and Operations Guide. For more information about the cards themselves, refer to the "Card Reference" chapter.


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 > Current Values 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 5 If the alarm does not clear, complete the "Physically Replace a Traffic Card" procedure for the reporting 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.


2.7.139  HI-RXPOWER

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

SDH Logical Object: STMN

DWDM Logical Objects: 2R, ESCON, FC, GE, ISC, 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.


Note For more information about MXP or TXP cards, refer to the Cisco ONS 15454 DWDM Installation and Operations Guide.



Note When you upgrade a node to Software Release 6.0 or later, this enables received optical power PMs for the STM1-8, STM64-SR, STM64-IR, STM64-ITU, STM64-XFP, MRC-12, and MRC25G-4 cards. The newly enabled HI-RXPOWER and LO-RXPOWER alarms require that you initialize a site-accepted optical power (OPR0) nominal value after the upgrade. (To do this, refer to the procedure in the "Turn Up a Node" chapter in the Cisco ONS 15454 SDH Procedure Guide.) When you apply the value change, CTC uses the new OPR0 value to calculate PM percentage values. If you do not change the nominal value, the HI-RXPOWER or LO-RXPOWER may be raised in response to the unmodified setting.


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 ports 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-4 Port" procedure 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 the identical type of card, you do not need to make any changes to the database.

The High Temperature alarm occurs when the temperature of the ONS 15454 SDH is above 50 degrees C (122 degrees F).

Clear the HITEMP Alarm


Step 1 View the temperature displayed on the ONS 15454 SDH LCD front panel. For an illustration of the LCD panel, see Figure 2-1.

Step 2 Verify that the environmental temperature of the room is not abnormally high.

Step 3 If the room temperature is not abnormal, physically ensure that nothing prevents the fan-tray assembly from passing air through the ONS 15454 SDH.

Step 4 If airflow is not blocked, physically ensure that blank faceplates fill the ONS 15454 SDH empty slots. Blank faceplates help airflow.


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 5 If faceplates fill the empty slots, determine whether the air filter needs replacement. Complete the "Inspect, Clean, and Replace the Reusable Air Filter" procedure.

Step 6 If the filter is clean, complete the "Remove and Reinsert a Fan-Tray Assembly" procedure.


Note The fan-tray assembly should run immediately when correctly inserted.


Step 7 If the fan does not run or the alarm persists, complete the "Replace the Fan-Tray Assembly" procedure.

Step 8 If the replacement fan-tray assembly does not operate correctly, log into the Cisco Technical Support Website at http://www.cisco.com/techsupport for more information.

The Equipment High Transmit Power alarm is an indicator on TXP, MXP, MRC-12, and OC192-XFP/STM64-XFP card transmitted optical signal power. HI-TXPOWER occurs when the measured optical power of the transmitted signal exceeds the threshold.


Note For more information about provisioning MXP or TXP PPMs, refer to the "Provision Transponder and Muxponder Cards" chapter of the Cisco ONS 15454 DWDM Installation and Operations Guide. For more information about the cards themselves, refer to the "Card Reference" chapter.


Clear the HI-TXPOWER Alarm


Step 1 In node view, display the card view for the reporting card.

Step 2 Click the Provisioning > Optics Thresholds tabs Provisioning > Optics Thresholds > Current Values tabs as appropriate.

Step 3 Decrease (change toward the negative direction) the OPT-HIGH column value by 0.5 dBm.

Step 4 If the card transmit power setting cannot be lowered without disrupting the signal, 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 the identical type of card, you do not need to make any changes to the database.

2.7.142  HLDOVRSYNC

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

SDH Logical Object: NE-SREF

The Holdover Synchronization Mode condition is caused by loss of the primary and second timing references in the node. Timing reference loss occurs when line coding on the timing input is different from the configuration on the node, and it often occurs during the selection of a new node reference clock. The condition clears when primary or second timing is reestablished. After the 24-hour holdover period expires, timing slips could begin to occur on an ONS 15454 SDH relying on an internal clock.

Clear the HLDOVRSYNC Alarm


Step 1 Clear additional events that relate to timing, such as:

FRNGSYNC

FSTSYNC

HLDOVRSYNC

LOF (DS1, DS3, E1, E4, STM1E, STMN)

LOS (STM1E, STMN)

MANSWTOINT

MANSWTOPRI

MANSWTOSEC

MANSWTOTHIRD

SYSBOOT

SWTOSEC

2.7.143  HP-ENCAP-MISMATCH

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

SDH 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 LP-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 an HP-ENCAP-MISMATCH alarm 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 by completing the following steps:

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-F 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 by completing the following steps:

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-F 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

To open the interface, click the card view IOS tab and click Open IOS Connection. Refer to the Ethernet Card Software Feature and Configuration Guide for the Cisco ONS 15454, Cisco ONS 15454 SDH, and Cisco ONS 15327 entries on all three of these topics to obtain the full configuration command sequences.

2.7.148  IMPROPRMVL

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

SDH Logical Object: EQPT

DWDM Logical Object: PPM

The Improper Removal equipment (IMPROPRMVL) alarm occurs under the following conditions:

A card is removed when the card was rebooting. It is recommended that after the card completely reboots, delete the card in CTC and only then remove the card physically. When you delete the card, CTC loses connection with the node view (single-shelf mode) or shelf view (multishelf mode), and goes to network view.

When a card is physically removed from its slot before it is deleted from CTC. It is recommended that any card be deleted in CTC before physically removing the card from the chassis.


Note CTC provides the user approximately 15 seconds to physically remove the card before it begins rebooting the card.
It can take up to 30 minutes for software to be updated on a standby TCC2/TCC2P card.


A card is inserted into a slot but is not fully plugged into the backplane.

A PPM (SFP) is provisioned but the physical module is not inserted into the port.

Electrical issues such as short circuit or failure of DC-DC conversion.


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 could 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, does have circuits mapped to it, is paired in a working protection scheme, has DCC enabled, or is used as a timing reference.


Step 3 If any ports on the card are in service, lock them (Locked, maintenance) by completing the following steps:


Caution Before locking a port (locked,maintenance or locked,disabled), ensure that no live traffic is present.

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

b. Click the Provisioning > Line tab or the Provisioning > Line > SDH tab as appropriate to the reporting card.

c. Click the Admin State column of any Unlocked ports.

d. Choose Locked, maintenance to take the ports out of service.

Step 4 If a circuit has been mapped to the card, complete the "Delete a Circuit" procedure.


Caution Before deleting the circuit, ensure that the circuit does not carry live traffic.

Step 5 If the card is paired in a protection scheme, delete the protection group by completing the following steps:

a. Click View > Go to Previous View to return to node view.

b. If you are already in node view, click the Provisioning > Protection tabs.

2.7.155  ISIS-ADJ-FAIL

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

SDH Logical Object: STMN

The Open System Interconnection (OSI) Intermediate System to Intermediate-System (IS-IS) Adjacency Failure alarm is raised by an intermediate system (node routing IS Level 1 or Level 1 and 2) when no IS or end system (ES) adjacency is established on a point-to-point subnet. The Intermediate-System Adjacency Failure alarm is not supported by ES. It is also not raised by IS for disabled routers.

The alarm is typically caused by a misconfigured router manual area adjacency (MAA) address. For more information about IS-IS OSI routing and MAA configuration, refer to the "Management Network Connectivity" chapter in the Cisco ONS 15454 SDH Reference Manual. For more information about configuring OSI, refer to the "Turn Up Node" chapter in the Cisco ONS 15454 SDH Procedure Guide for procedures.

Clear the ISIS-ADJ-FAIL Alarm


Step 1 Ensure that both ends of the communication channel are using the correct Layer 2 protocol and settings (LAPD or PPP). To do this, complete the following steps:

a. At the local node, in node view, click the Provisioning > Comm Channels >MSDCC tabs.

b. Click the row of the circuit. Click Edit.

c. In the Edit MSDCC termination dialog box, view and record the following selections: Layer 2 protocol (LAPD or PPP); Mode radio button selection (AITS or UITS); Role radio button selection (Network or User); MTU value; T200 value, and T203 selections.

d. Click Cancel.

e. Log in to the remote node and follow the same steps, also recording the same information for this node.

Step 2 If both nodes do not use the same Layer 2 settings, you will have to delete the incorrect termination and recreate it. To delete it, click the termination and click Delete. To recreate it, refer to the "Turn Up Node" chapter in the Cisco ONS 15454 SDH Procedure Guide for the procedure.

Step 3 If the nodes use PPP Layer 2, complete the "Clear the EOC Alarm" procedure. If the alarm does not clear, go to Step 7.

Step 4 If both nodes use the LAPD Layer 2 protocol but have different Mode settings, change the incorrect node's entry by clicking the correct setting radio button in the Edit MSDCC termination dialog box and clicking OK.

Step 5 If the Layer 2 protocol and Mode settings are correct, ensure that one node is using the Network role and the other has the User role. If not (that is, if both have the same mode settings), correct the incorrect one by clicking the correct radio button in the Edit MSDCC termination dialog box and clicking OK.

Step 6 If the Layer 2, Mode, and Role settings are correct, compare the MTU settings for each node. If one is incorrect, choose the correct value in the Edit MSDCC dialog box and click OK.

Step 7 If all of the preceding settings are correct, ensure that OSI routers are enabled for the communications channels at both ends by completing the following steps:

a. Click Provisioning > OSI > Routers > Setup.

b. View the router entry under the Status column. If the status is Enabled, check the other end.

c. If the Status is Disabled, click the router entry and click Edit.

d. Check the Enabled check box and click OK.

Step 8 If the routers on both ends are enabled and the alarm still has not cleared, ensure that both ends of the communications channel have a common MAA by completing the following steps:

a. Click the Provisioning > OSI > Routers > Setup tabs.

b. Record the primary MAA and secondary MAAs, if configured.


Tip You can record long strings of information such as the MAA address by using the CTC export and print functions. Export it by choosing File > Export > html. Print it by choosing File > Print.


c. Log into the other node and record the primary MAA and secondary MAAs, if configured.

d. Compare this information. There should be at least one common primary or secondary MAA in order to establish an adjacency.

e. If there is no common MAA, one must be added to establish an adjacency. Refer to the "Turn Up Node" chapter of the Cisco ONS 15454 SDH Procedure Guide for procedures to do this.

2.7.157  KBYTE-APS-CHANNEL-FAILURE

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

SDH Logical Object: STMN

The APS Channel Failure alarm is raised when a span is provisioned for different APS channels on each side. For example, the alarm is raised if K3 is selected on one end and F1, E2, or Z2 is selected on the other end.

This alarm is also raised during checksum. Failure occurs if the K1 and K2 bytes are overwritten by test equipment. It is not raised in bidirectional full pass-through or K byte pass-through states. The alarm is overridden by MS-AIS, "LOF (DS1, DS3, E1, E4, STM1E, STMN)" alarm on page 2-136, "LOS (STM1E, STMN)" alarm on page 2-146, or SFBER-EXCEED-HO alarms.

Clear the KBYTE-APS-CHANNEL-FAILURE Alarm


Step 1 The alarm is most frequently raised due to mismatched span provisioning. In this case, reprovision one side of the span to match the parameters of the other side. To do this, refer to the "Turn Up Network" chapter in the Cisco ONS 15454 SDH Procedure Guide for procedures.

Step 2 If the error is not caused by misprovisioning, it is due to checksum errors within an STM-N, cross-connect, or TCC2/TCC2P card. In this case, complete the "Side Switch the Active and Standby Cross-Connect Cards" procedure to allow CTC to resolve the issue.

Step 3 If third-party equipment is involved, ensure that it is configured for the same APS channel as the Cisco ONS equipment.

2.7.163  LCAS-CRC

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

SDH Logical Objects: VCTRM-HP, VCTRM-LP

The Link Capacity Adjustment Scheme (LCAS) Control Word CRC Failure condition is raised against ML-Series Ethernet cards and CE-series 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.


Note For more information about Ethernet cards, 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 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 Circuits 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.

2.7.164  LCAS-RX-FAIL

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

SDH Logical Objects: VCTRM-HP, VCTRM-LP

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

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.


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



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


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.


2.7.165  LCAS-TX-ADD

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

SDH Logical Objects: VCTRM-HP, VCTRM-LP

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


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



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


2.7.166  LCAS-TX-DNU

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

SDH Logical Objects: VCTRM-HP, VCTRM-LP

The LCAS VCG Member Transmit Side In Do Not Use condition is raised on FC_MR-4 cards, ML-Series Ethernet cards, and CE-series cards when the transmit 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 LCAS-TX-DNU condition is raised when the cable is unplugged.

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 2-121.


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



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


2.7.167  LKOUTPR-S

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

SDH Logical Object: STMN

The Lockout of Protection Span condition occurs when span traffic is locked out of a protect span using the Lockout of Protect command. This condition is visible on the Alarms, Conditions, and History tabs in network view after the lockout has occurred and accompanies the FE-LOCKOUTPR-SPAN condition. The port where the lockout originated is marked by an "L" on the network view detailed circuit map.

Clear the LKOUTPR-S Condition

2.7.168  LOA

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

SDH 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


Step 1 In network view, click the Circuits tab.

Step 2 Click the alarmed VCG and then click Edit.

Step 3 In the Edit Circuit dialog box, view the source and destination circuit slots, ports, and VC4s.

Step 4 Identify whether the circuit travels across different fibers. If it does, complete the "Delete a Circuit" procedure.

Step 5 Recreate the circuit using the procedure in the "Create Circuits and Tunnels" chapter in the Cisco ONS 15454 SDH Procedure Guide.

2.7.169  LOCKOUT-REQ

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

SDH Logical Objects: EQPT, STMN, VCMON-HP, VCMON-LP

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

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.


2.7.170  LOF (BITS)

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

SDH Logical Object: BITS

The Loss of Frame (LOF) BITS alarm occurs when a port on the TCC2/TCC2P card 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 by completing the following steps:

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 > BITS Facilities 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.


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

SDH Logical Objects: DS1, DS3, E1, E4, STM1E, STMN

An LOF alarm on a DS1i-N-14, DS3i-N-12, E1-N-14, or E1-42 card for these objects means that the receiving ONS 15454 SDH has lost frame delineation in the incoming data. LOF occurs when the SDH overhead loses a valid framing pattern for three seconds. Receiving two consecutive valid patterns clears the alarm.

Clear the LOF (DS1, DS3, E1, E4, STM1E, STMN) Alarm


Step 1 Verify that the line framing and line coding match between the port and the signal source by completing the following steps:

a. In CTC, note the slot and port reporting the alarm.

b. Find the coding and framing formats of the signal source for the card reporting the alarm. You could need to contact your network administrator for the format information.

c. Display the card view of the reporting card.

d. Click the Provisioning > Line tabs.

e. Verify that the line type of the reporting port matches the line type of the signal source.

f. If the signal source line type does not match the reporting port, click Line Type and choose the appropriate type from the drop-down list.

g. Verify that the reporting Line Coding matches the signal source's line type.

h. If the signal source line coding does not match the reporting port, click Line Coding and choose the appropriate type from the drop-down list.

i. Click Apply.

Step 2 If the alarm does not clear when the coding and framing of the ONS 15454 SDH match the coding and framing of the signal source, replace the card.

2.7.173  LO-LASERBIAS

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

SDH Logical Objects: EQPT, STMN

DWDM Logical Objects: PPM

The Equipment Low Transmit Laser Bias Current alarm is raised against the TXP, MXP, MRC-12, and OC192-XFP/STM64-XFP card laser performance. The alarm indicates that the card laser has reached the minimum laser bias tolerance.

If the LO-LASERBIAS alarm threshold is set at 0 percent (the default), the laser's usability has ended. If the threshold is set at 5 percent to 10 percent, the card is still usable for several weeks or months before you need to replace it.


Note For more information about provisioning MXP or TXP PPMs, refer to the "Provision Transponder and Muxponder Cards" chapter of the Cisco ONS 15454 DWDM Installation and Operations Guide. For more information about the cards themselves, refer to the "Card Reference" chapter.

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. Consult the Cisco ONS 15454 SDH Procedure Guide for procedures.

Step 2 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.


2.7.174  LO-LASERTEMP

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

SDH Logical Objects: EQPT, STMN

DWDM Logical Object: PPM

The Equipment Low Laser Optical Transceiver Temperature alarm applies to the TXP, MXP, MRC-12, and OC192-XFP/STM64-XFP 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 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 2-74 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 Values tabs or the Performance > Optics PM tabs as appropriate to the reporting card. Maximum, minimum, and average laser temperatures are shown in the Current column entries in the Laser Temp rows.


Note For more information about provisioning MXP or TXP PPMs, refer to the "Provision Transponder and Muxponder Chapters" chapter of the Cisco ONS 15454 DWDM Installation and Operations Guide. For more information about the cards themselves, refer to the "Card Reference" chapter.


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 card.

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.


2.7.175  LOM

Default Severity: Critical (CR), Service-Affecting (SA) for TRUNK, VCMON-HP; Major (MJ), Service-Affecting (SA) for VCTRM-HP, VCTRM-LP

SDH Logical Objects: VCMON-HP, VCTRM-HP, VCTRM-LP

DWDM Logical Object: TRUNK

The optical transport unit (OTU) Loss of Multiframe 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 applies to MXP_2.5G_10G, TXP_MR_10G, TXP_MR_2.5G, TXP_MR_10E, or TXPP_MR_2.5G cards when the Multi Frame Alignment Signal (MFAS) overhead field is errored for more than five frames and persists for more than three ms.


Note For more information about MXP or TXP cards, refer to the Cisco ONS 15454 DWDM Installation and Operations Guide.


Clear the LOM Alarm


Step 1 Complete the "Clear the SD (DS3, E1, E3, E4, STM1E, STM-N) Condition" procedure.

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 (SA) problem.


2.7.176  LO-RXPOWER

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

SDH Logical Object: STMN

DWDM Logical Objects: 2R, ESCON, FC, GE, ISC, 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 below the threshold value, which is user-provisionable.


Note For more information about MXP and TXP cards, refer to the Cisco ONS 15454 DWDM Installation and Operations Guide.



Note When you upgrade a node to Software Release 6.0 or later, this enables received optical power PMs for the STM1-8, STM64-SR, STM64-IR, STM64-ITU, STM64-XFP, MRC-12, and MRC25G-4 cards. The newly enabled HI-RXPOWER and LO-RXPOWER alarms require that you initialize a site-accepted optical power (OPR0) nominal value after the upgrade. (To do this, refer to the procedure in the "Turn Up a Node" chapter in the Cisco ONS 15454 SDH Procedure Guide.) When you apply the value change, CTC uses the new OPR0 value to calculate PM percentage values. If you do not change the nominal value, the HI-RXPOWER or LO-RXPOWER may be raised in response to the unmodified setting.


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 "Maintain the Node" chapter in the Cisco ONS 15454 SDH Procedure Guide.

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 reading 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 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 the identical type of card, you do not need to make any changes to the database.


Step 9 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 (SA) problem.

Default Severities: Critical (CR), Service-Affecting (SA) for DS3; Major (MJ), Service-Affecting (SA) for DS1

SDH Logical Objects: DS1, DS3

A LOS (DS3) alarm for a DS1i_N-14 or DS3i-N-12 port occurs when the port on the card is in service but no signal is being received. The cabling might not be correctly connected to the card, or no signal exists on the line.

Clear the LOS (DS1, DS3) 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 "Install Cards and Fiber-Optic Cables" chapter in the Cisco ONS 15454 SDH Procedure Guide.


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 Consult site records to determine whether the port raising the alarm has been assigned.

Step 3 If the port is not currently assigned, place the port out of service using the following steps:

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

b. Click the Maintenance > Loopback tabs.

c. Under Admin State, click locked,disabled.

d. Click Apply.

Step 4 If the port is assigned, verify that the correct port is in service by completing the following steps:

a. To confirm this physically, confirm that the LED is correctly illuminated 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 this virtually, double-click the card in CTC to display the card view and complete the following substeps:

Click the Provisioning > Line tabs.

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

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

Step 5 Use a test set to confirm that a valid signal exists on the line. Test the line as close to the receiving card as possible. For specific procedures to use the test set equipment, consult the manufacturer.

Step 6 Ensure that the transmit and receive outputs from the DSx panel to your equipment are properly connected. For more information about fiber connections and terminations, refer to the "Install Cards and Fiber-Optic Cable" chapter in the Cisco ONS 15454 SDH Procedure Guide.

Step 7 If there is a valid signal, replace the electrical connector on the ONS 15454 SDH.

Step 8 If a valid signal is not present and the transmitting device is operational, replace the fiber cable connecting the transmitting device to the port. To do this, refer to the "Install Cards and Fiber-Optic Cable" chapter in the Cisco ONS 15454 SDH Procedure Guide for procedures.

Step 9 Repeat Steps 1 to 8 for any other port on the card that reports the LOS.

Step 10 If no other alarms are present that could be the source of the LOS (DS-1 or DS-3), or if clearing an alarm did not clear the LOS, complete the "Physically Replace a Traffic Card" procedure for the reporting 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 the identical type of card, you do not need to make any changes to the database.

2.7.180  LOS (E1, E3, E4)

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

SDH 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. To verify cable continuity, follow site practices.


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 cabling is good, verify that the correct port is in service by completing the following steps:

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

2.7.218  LPBKTERMINAL (TRUNK)

For information about this alarm or condition, refer to the "Alarm Troubleshooting" chapter in the Cisco ONS 15454 DWDM Troubleshooting Guide. This guide discusses all DWDM alarms.

2.7.219  LP-ENCAP-MISMATCH

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

SDH Logical Object: VCTRM-LP

The Encapsulation C2 Byte Mismatch Path 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 LP-PLM, which must meet all five criteria.) For an LP-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 an LP-ENCAP-MISMATCH alarm is if a circuit created between two ML-Series cards has GFP framing provisioned on one end and HLDC 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)


Note By default, an LP-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 cards, 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 LP-ENCAP-MISMATCH Alarm


Step 1 Ensure that the correct framing mode is in use on the transmit card, and that it is identical to the receive card by completing the following steps:

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-F or HDLC) is selected. If it is not, choose it and click Apply.

Step 2 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

To open the interface, click the IOS tab and click Open IOS Connection. Refer to the Ethernet Card Software Feature and Configuration Guide for the Cisco ONS 15454, Cisco ONS 15454 SDH, and Cisco ONS 15327 entries on all three of these topics to obtain the full configuration command sequences.

2.7.220  LP-PLM

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

SDH Logical Object: VCTRM- LP

The SLMF-PLM Low-Order Path Label Mismatch alarm applies to the V5 byte in low-order (VC-2 or VC-1) path overhead. LP-PLM occurs when there is a mismatch between the transmitted and received V5 byte received in the SDH payload overhead.

The LP-PLM alarm occurs when the optical (traffic) cards cannot detect the value of the C2 byte in the payload. The low-order C2 byte would cause the LP-PLM to occur on terminating cards.

Clear the LP-PLM Alarm


Step 1 Verify that all circuits terminating in the reporting card are active by completing the following steps:

a. Click the Circuits tab.

b. Verify that the Admin State column lists the port as discovered.

c. If the Admin State column lists the port as incomplete, wait 10 minutes for the ONS 15454 SDH to initialize fully. If the incomplete state does not change after full initialization, 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.

Step 2 After verifying that the port is active, verify the signal source to the electrical card reporting the alarm with an optical test set according to site specific practice. For specific procedures to use the test set equipment, consult the manufacturer.

Step 3 If traffic is being affected, complete the "Delete a Circuit" procedure.


Caution Deleting a circuit can affect traffic.

Step 4 Recreate the circuit with the correct circuit size. Refer to the "Create Circuits and Tunnels" chapter in the Cisco ONS 15454 SDH Procedure Guide for circuit procedures.

Step 5 If the circuit deletion and re-creation does not clear the alarm, verify the far-end STM-N card that provides the payload to the electrical ca
