TL1 Errors

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 provides TL1 error information supported by the Cisco ONS 15454, ONS 15327, ONS 15600 and ONS 15310-CL. For alarm information, Refer to the platform-specific Cisco ONS Procedure Guide, Cisco ONS Troubleshooting Guide and Cisco ONS Reference Manual.

3.1  Errors

Errors can be generated by any command or command response message. Table 3-1 through Table 3-64 list errors alphabetically by error code. The format of an error message is as follows:

3.2  Echo

In order to improve telnet functionality for automated systems, the echo function has been turned off in ONS 15454 Release 3.0 and later. This change is transparent to users running standard UNIX-compliant telnet clients; however, PC users might need to change their client setup to enable "local echo." This is normally accomplished by a drop-down list or a preference attribute.

To test the local echo on your PC client, use the RTRV-HDR command. If you receive a response but no data, set local echo ON. Cisco recommends that you close any windows containing sensitive information after exiting a TL1 session.
