3.2  Trouble Notifications

The ONS 15600 reports trouble by using standard condition characteristics that follow the rules in Telcordia GR-253 and graphical user interface (GUI) state indicators.

The ONS 15600 uses standard Telcordia categories to characterize levels of trouble. The system reports trouble notifications as alarms and reports status or descriptive notifications (if configured to do so) as conditions in the CTC Alarms window. Alarms typically signify a problem that you need to remedy, such as a loss of signal. Conditions do not necessarily require troubleshooting.

3.2.1  Condition Characteristics

Conditions include any problem detected on an ONS 15600 shelf. They can include standing or transient notifications. You can retrieve a snapshot of all currently raised conditions on the network, node, or card in the CTC Conditions window or by using the RTRV-COND commands in Transaction Language One (TL1).


Note Some cleared conditions are found on the History tab.


For a comprehensive list of conditions, refer to the Cisco ONS SONET TL1 Command Guide.

3.2.2  Condition States

The History tab state (ST) column indicates the disposition of the condition, as follows:

A raised (R) event is active.

A cleared (C) event is no longer active.

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

3.3  Transient Conditions

This section lists in alphabetical order all the transient conditions encountered in Software Release 7.0. The description, entity, SNMP number, and SNMP trap accompany each condition.

3.3.1  ADMIN-DISABLE

The Disable Inactive User (ADMIN-DISABLE) condition occurs when the administrator disables the user or the account is inactive for a specified period.

This transient condition does not result in a standing condition.

3.3.2  ADMIN-DISABLE-CLR

The Disable Inactive Clear (ADMIN-DISABLE-CLR) condition occurs when the administrator clears the disable flag on the user account.

This transient condition does not result in a standing condition.

3.3.3  ADMIN-LOCKOUT

The Admin Lockout of User (ADMIN-LOCKOUT) condition occurs when the administrator locks a user account.

This transient condition does not result in a standing condition.

3.3.4  ADMIN-LOCKOUT-CLR

The Admin Lockout Clear (ADMIN-LOCKOUT-CLR) condition occurs when the administrator unlocks a user account or the lockout time expires.

This transient condition does not result in a standing condition.

3.3.5  ADMIN-LOGOUT

The Admin Logout of User (ADMIN-LOGOUT) condition occurs when the administrator logs off a user session.

This transient condition does not result in a standing condition.

3.3.6  ADMIN-SUSPEND

The Suspend User (ADMIN-SUSPEND) condition occurs when the password for a user account expires.

This transient condition does not result in a standing condition.

3.3.7  ADMIN-SUSPEND-CLR

The Suspend User Clear (ADMIN-SUSPEND-CLR) condition occurs when the user or administrator changes the password.

This transient condition does not result in a standing condition.

3.3.8  AUTH-FAIL

The Remote Authentication Fail - See Audit Log (AUTH-FAIL) condition indicates that an attempt to validate a login remotely has failed.

This transient condition does not result in a standing condition.

3.3.9  BLSR-RESYNC

The BLSR Multinode Table Update Completed (BLSR-RESYNC) condition might occur when you create or delete circuits on a bidirectional line switched ring (BLSR), change a ring topology (for example, add or delete a BLSR node), or change the BLSR circuit state and ring ID.

3.3.10  DBBACKUP-FAIL

The Database Backup Failed (DBBACKUP-FAIL) condition occurs when the system fails to back up the database when the backup command is initiated.

This condition can occur when the server is not able to handle the backup operation due to network or server issues. Repeat the same operation again and check to see if it is successful. If the backup fails, it could be due to a network issue or software program failure. Contact Cisco TAC for assistance; see the "Obtaining Documentation, Obtaining Support, and Security Guidelines" section on page xxxi as needed.

3.3.11  DBRESTORE-FAIL

The Database Restore Failed (DBRESTORE-FAIL) condition occurs when the system fails to restore the backed up database when the restore command is initiated.

This condition can be due to server issues, network issues, or human error (pointing to a file that does not exist, wrong file name, etc.). Retrying the database restore with the correct file will usually succeed. If the network issue persists, you must contact network lab support. If the condition is caused by a network element (NE) failure, contact Cisco TAC for assistance. See the "Obtaining Documentation, Obtaining Support, and Security Guidelines" section on page xxxi as needed.

3.3.12  ETHERNET-PORT-SWITCH

The TSC Switched to Alternate Ethernet Port (ETHERNET-PORT-SWITCH) occurs when an alternate Ethernet port becomes active. If it occurs after startup, it means that the backplane Ethernet connection that was active is not active anymore. Onsite technical support must check the connection between the ONS 15600 and the router or switch.

3.3.13  EXERCISING-RING

The Exercising Ring Successfully (EXERCISING-RING) condition occurs whenever you issue an Exercise-Ring command from CTC or TL1. This condition indicates that a command is being executed. You must issue another command to clear the exercise and the condition.

3.3.14  EXERCISING-SPAN

The Exercising Span Successfully (EXERCISING-SPAN) condition occurs whenever you issue an Exercise-Span command from CTC or TL1. This condition indicates that a command is being executed.

3.3.15  FIREWALL-DIS

The Firewall Has Been Disabled (FIREWALL-DIS) condition occurs when you provision the firewall to Disabled.

This transient condition does not result in a standing condition.

3.3.16  INTRUSION

The Invalid Login Username (INTRUSION) condition occurs when you attempt to login with an invalid user ID.

This transient condition does not result in a standing condition.

3.3.17  INTRUSION-PSWD

The Security Intrusion Attempt Detected (INTRUSION -PSWD) condition occurs when you attempt to login with an invalid password.

This transient condition does not result in a standing condition.

3.3.18  LOGIN-FAILURE-LOCKOUT

The Invalid Login-Locked Out (LOGIN-FAILURE-LOCKOUT) condition occurs when you attempt to log into a locked account.

This transient condition does not result in a standing condition.

3.3.19  LOGIN-FAILURE-ONALRDY

The Security: Invalid Login-Already Logged On (LOGIN-FAILURE-ONALRDY) condition occurs when you attempt to login with an existing session and SUPN policy.

This transient condition does not result in a standing condition.

3.3.20  LOGIN-FAILURE-PSWD

The Invalid Login-Password (LOGIN-FAILURE-PSWD) condition occurs when you attempt to login with an invalid password.

This transient condition does not result in a standing condition.

3.3.21  LOGIN-FAILURE-USERID

The Invalid Login-Username (LOGIN-FAILURE-USERID) condition occurs when a user login (CTC, Cisco Transport Manager [CTM], or TL1) fails because the login username is not present on the node database. You must log in again with an existing user ID.

This transient condition is equivalent to a security warning. You must check the security log (audit log) for other security-related actions that have occurred.

3.3.22  LOGOUT-IDLE-USER

The Automatic Logout of Idle User (LOGOUT-IDLE-USER) condition occurs when a user session is idle for too long (the idle timeout expires) and the session terminates as a result. You must log in again to restart your session.

3.3.23  PM-TCA

The Performance Monitor Threshold Crossing Alert (PM-TCA) condition occurs when network collisions cross the rising threshold for the first time.

3.3.24  PSWD-CHG-REQUIRED

The User Password Change Required (PSWD-CHG-REQUIRED) condition occurs when you are denied login for a shell function such as Telnet or FTP because you did not change the login password. You can change the password through CTC or TL1.

3.3.25  SESSION-TIME-LIMIT

The Session Time Limit Expired (SESSION-TIME-LIMIT) condition occurs when a login session exceeds the time limit and you are logged out of the session. You must log in again.

3.3.26  SWFTDOWNFAIL

The Software Download Failed (SFTDOWN-FAIL) condition occurs when the system fails to download the required software.

An incorrect input that points to the wrong place or file, network issues, or a bad (corrupt) package can cause this failure. Retrying the operation with the correct name/location will usually succeed. If network issues persist, you must contact the network lab support. If the package is corrupt, contact Cisco TAC. See the "Obtaining Documentation, Obtaining Support, and Security Guidelines" section on page xxxi for details.

3.3.27  USER-LOCKOUT

The User Locked Out (USER-LOCKOUT) condition occurs when the system locks an account because of a failed login attempt. To proceed, the administrator must unlock the account or the lockout time must expire.

3.3.28  USER-LOGIN

The Login of User (USER-LOGIN) occurs when you begin a new session by verifying your User ID and password.

This transient condition does not result in a standing condition.

3.3.29  USER-LOGOUT

The Logout of User (USER-LOGOUT) condition occurs when you stop a login session by logging out of your account.

This transient condition does not result in a standing condition.

3.3.30  WKSWBK

The Switched Back to Working (WKSWBK) condition occurs when traffic switches back to the working port/card in a nonrevertive protection group.

This transient condition does not result in a standing condition.

3.3.31  WKSWPR

The Switched to Protection (WKSWPR) condition occurs when traffic switches to the protect port/card in a nonrevertive protection group.

This transient condition does not result in a standing condition.
