Turn Up a Node


This chapter explains how to provision a single Cisco ONS 15454 dense wavelength division multiplexing (DWDM) node and turn it up for service, including assigning the node name, date, and time; provisioning timing references; provisioning network attributes such as IP address and default router; setting up users and user security; installing cards; and creating DWDM connections.


Note Procedures in this chapter require that you have a network plan calculated for your DWDM network with Cisco MetroPlanner, Release 7.0. Cisco MetroPlanner is a DWDM planning tool that is available from your Cisco account representative. Cisco MetroPlanner prepares a shelf plan for each network node and calculates the power and attenuation levels for the DWDM cards installed in the node. For information about Cisco MetroPlanner, contact your Cisco account representative. For instructions on using Cisco MetroPlanner, refer to the Cisco MetroPlanner DWDM Operations Guide, Release 7.0.



Note Unless otherwise specified, in this document "ONS 15454" refers to both ANSI (ONS 15454) and ETSI (ONS 15454 SDH) shelf assemblies.



Note CTC views referenced in these procedures depend on the ONS 15454 mode. In single-shelf mode, the views are network, node, and card. In multishelf mode, the views are network, multishelf, shelf, and card. For more information about CTC views, refer to "CTC Information and Shortcuts."

Security Level

Provisioning or higher



Step 1 Complete the "DLP-G46 Log into CTC" task for the node you will turn up. If you are already logged in, continue with Step 2.

Step 2 In node view (single-shelf mode) or multishelf view (multishelf mode), click the Provisioning > General > General tabs.

Step 3 In the Node Name field, type a name for the node. For TL1 compliance, names must begin with an alpha character and have no more than 20 alphanumeric (a-z, A-Z, 0-9) characters.


Note To avoid errors when you import the Cisco MetroPlanner configuration file in the "NTP-G143 Import the Cisco MetroPlanner NE Update Configuration File" task, the CTC node name and the Cisco MetroPlanner site name should be the same or at least easy to identify.


Step 4 (Optional) In the Contact field, type the name of the node contact person and the phone number, up to 255 characters.

Step 5 (Optional) In the Latitude field, enter the node latitude: N (north) or S (south), degrees, and minutes.

Step 6 (Optional) In the Longitude field, enter the node longitude: E (east) or W (west), degrees, and minutes.

CTC uses the latitude and longitude to position ONS 15454 icons on the network view map. To convert a coordinate in degrees to degrees and minutes, multiply the number after the decimal by 60. For example, the latitude 38.250739 converts to 38 degrees, 15 minutes (0.250739 x 60 = 15.0443, rounded to the nearest whole number).

Step 7 (Optional) In the Description field, type a description of the node. The description can be a maximum of 255 characters.

Step 8 (Optional) Check the Use NTP/SNTP Server check box. When checked, CTC uses a Network Time Protocol (NTP) or Simple Network Time Protocol (SNTP) server to set the date and time of the node. Using an NTP or SNTP server ensures that all ONS 15454 network nodes use the same date and time reference. The server synchronizes the node's time after power outages or software upgrades.

a. If you check the Use NTP/SNTP Server check box, type the IP address of one of the following:

An NTP/SNTP server connected to the ONS 15454

Another ONS 15454 with NTP/SNTP enabled that is connected to the ONS 15454


Note If you plan to check gateway network element (GNE) for the ONS 15454 SOCKS proxy server (see "DLP-G56 Provision IP Settings" task), external ONS 15454 nodes must reference the gateway ONS 15454 for NTP/SNTP timing. For more information about the ONS 15454 gateway settings, refer to the "Management Network Connectivity" chapter in the Cisco ONS 15454 DWDM Reference Manual.



Caution If you reference another ONS 15454 for the NTP/SNTP server, make sure that the second ONS 15454 references an NTP/SNTP server and not the first ONS 15454 (that is, do not create an NTP/SNTP timing loop by having two ONS 15454 nodes reference each other).

b. If you did not check Use SNTP/NTP Server, complete the Date and Time fields. The ONS 15454 will use these fields for alarm dates and times. By default, CTC displays all alarms in the CTC computer time zone for consistency. To change the display to the node time zone, complete the "DLP-G118 Display Alarms and Conditions Using Time Zone" task.

Date—Type the current date in the format m/d/yyyy, for example, September 24, 2002 is 9/24/2002.

Time—Type the current time in the format hh:mm:ss, for example, 11:24:58. The ONS 15454 uses a 24-hour clock, so 10:00 PM is entered as 22:00:00.

Step 9 Click the Time Zone field and choose a city within your time zone from the drop-down list. The list displays the 80 World Time Zones from -11 through 0 (GMT) to +14. Continental United States time zones are GMT-05:00 (Eastern), GMT-06:00 (Central), GMT-07:00 (Mountain), and GMT-08:00 (Pacific).

Step 10 Click the Use Daylight Savings Time check box if the time zone that you chose uses Daylight Savings Time.


Note The Insert AIS-V on STS-1 SD-P and SD-P BER field are not used in DWDM networks.


Step 11 Click Apply.

Step 1 Complete the "DLP-G46 Log into CTC" task. If you are already logged in, continue with Step 2.

Step 2 Complete the "DLP-G56 Provision IP Settings" task to provision the ONS 15454 IP address, subnet mask, default router, DHCP server, IIOP listener port, and SOCKS proxy server settings.


Tip If you cannot log into the node, you can change its IP address, default router, and network mask by using the LCD on the ONS 15454 fan-tray assembly (unless LCD provisioning is suppressed). See the "DLP-G57 Set the IP Address, Default Router, and Network Mask Using the LCD" task for instructions. However, you cannot use the LCD to provision any other network settings.



Note When accessing CTC from a machine running Windows XP operating system, CTC may sometimes fail to reconnect to a GNE when the GNE proxies for several ENE nodes (approximately 15 ENE nodes). This can happen when there is a side switch or when the LAN is enabled/disabled. This is due to the Windows XP operating system limiting the number of simultaneous TCP/IP connection attempts. As a workaround, relaunch CTC on the GNE node. You can configure a designated socks server list on the CTC to mitigate the problem.


Step 3 If TCC2P cards are installed and you want to turn on the ONS 15454 secure mode, which allows two IP addresses to be provisioned for the node, complete the "DLP-G264 Enable Node Security Mode" task. Secure mode is not available if TCC2 cards are installed.

Step 4 If static routes are needed, complete the "DLP-G58 Create a Static Route" task. For more information about static routes, refer to the "Management Network Connectivity" chapter in the Cisco ONS 15454 DWDM Reference Manual.

Step 5 If the ONS 15454 is connected to a LAN or WAN that uses OSPF and you want to share routing information between the LAN or WAN and the ONS network, complete the "DLP-G59 Set Up or Change Open Shortest Path First Protocol" task.

Step 6 If the ONS 15454 is connected to a LAN or WAN that uses RIP, complete the "DLP-G60 Set Up or Change Routing Information Protocol" task.

Stop. You have completed this procedure.

Caution All network changes should be approved by your network (or LAN) administrator.


Step 1 In node view (single-shelf mode) or multishelf view (multishelf mode), click the Provisioning > Network > General tabs.

Step 2 Complete the following information in the fields listed:

IP Address—Type the IP address assigned to the ONS 15454 node.

Net/Subnet Mask Length—Type the subnet mask length (decimal number representing the subnet mask length in bits) or click the arrows to adjust the subnet mask length. The subnet mask length is the same for all ONS 15454 nodes in the same subnet.

MAC Address—(Display only) Displays the ONS 15454 IEEE 802 MAC address.

Default Router—If the ONS 15454 is connected to a LAN, enter the IP address of the default router. The default router forwards packets to network devices that the ONS 15454 cannot directly access. This field is ignored if any of the following are true:

The ONS 15454 is not connected to a LAN.

SOCKS proxy server is enabled and the ONS 15454 is provisioned as an end network element (ENE).

OSPF (Open Shortest Path First) is enabled on both the ONS 15454 (the OSPF on LAN check box on the Provisioning > Network > OSPF tab) and the LAN where the ONS 15454 is connected.

LCD IP Setting—Choose one of the following:

Allow Configuration—Displays the node IP address on the LCD and allows users to change the IP settings using the LCD. This option enables the "DLP-G57 Set the IP Address, Default Router, and Network Mask Using the LCD" task.

Display Only—Displays the node IP address on the LCD but does not allow users to change the IP settings using the LCD.

Suppress Display—Suppresses the node IP address display on the LCD.

Suppress CTC IP Display—Check this check box if you want to prevent the node IP address from appearing in CTC to users with Provisioning, Maintenance, or Retrieve security levels. (The IP address suppression is not applied to users with Superuser security level.)

Forward DHCP Request To—Check this check box to enable DHCP. Also, enter the DHCP server IP address in the Request To field. Unchecked is the default. If you will enable any of the gateway settings to implement the ONS 15454 SOCKS proxy server features, leave this field blank.


Note If you enable DHCP, computers connected to an ONS 15454 node can obtain temporary IP addresses from an external DHCP server. The ONS 15454 only forwards DHCP requests; it does not act as a DHCP server.


Gateway Settings—Provisions the ONS 15454 SOCKS proxy server features. (SOCKS is a standard proxy protocol for IP-based applications.) Do not change these options until you review Scenario 7 in the "Management Network Connectivity" chapter of the Cisco ONS 15454 DWDM Reference Manual. In SOCKS proxy server networks, the ONS 15454 is either an ENE, a GNE, or a proxy-only server. Provisioning must be consistent for each NE type.

Enable SOCKS proxy server on port—If checked, the ONS 15454 serves as a proxy for connections between CTC clients and ONS 15454 nodes that are connected by data communications channels (DCCs) to the proxy ONS 15454. The CTC client establishes connections to DCC-connected nodes through the proxy node. The CTC client does not require IP connectivity to the DCC-connected nodes; it only requires IP connectivity to the proxy ONS 15454. If the Enable SOCKS proxy server on port check box is unchecked, the node does not proxy for any CTC clients. When this box is checked, you can provision one of the following options:

External Network Element (ENE)—Choose this option when the ONS 15454 is not connected to a LAN but has DCC connections to other ONS nodes. A CTC computer connected to the ENE through the TCC2/TCC2P card TCP/IP (craft) port can manage nodes that have DCC connections to the ENE. However, the CTC computer does not have direct IP connectivity to these nodes or to any LAN or WAN that those nodes might be connected to.

Gateway Network Element (GNE)—Choose this option when the ONS 15454 is connected to a LAN and has DCC connections to other nodes. A CTC computer connected to the LAN can manage all nodes that have DCC connections to the GNE, but the CTC computer does not have direct IP connectivity to them. The GNE option isolates the LAN from the DCC network so that IP traffic originating from the DCC-connected nodes and any CTC computers connected to them is prevented from reaching the LAN.

SOCKS proxy only—Choose this option when the ONS 15454 is connected to a LAN and the LAN is separated from the node by a firewall. The SOCKS proxy only option is the same as the GNE option, except that the SOCKS proxy only option does not isolate the DCC network from the LAN.

Step 3 Click Apply.

Step 4 Click Yes in the confirmation dialog box.

Both TCC2/TCC2P cards reboot, one at a time if changes were made to the IP address, subnet mask, or gateway settings. During this time (approximately 5-6 minutes), the active and standby TCC2/TCC2P card LEDs will blink, turn on, and turn off at different intervals. Eventually, a "Lost node connection, switching to network view" message appears.

Step 5 Click OK. The network view appears. The node icon appears in gray, during which time you cannot access the node.

Step 6 Double-click the node icon when it becomes green.

Step 7 Return to your originating procedure (NTP).

Note The IP address and default router must be on the same subnet. If not, you cannot apply the configuration.


Step 10 Saving the new configuration causes the TCC2/TCC2P cards to reboot. During the reboot, a "TCC may Reset" message appears on the LCD. The LCD returns to the normal alternating display after both TCC2 cards or TCC2P cards finish rebooting.

Step 11 Return to your originating procedure (NTP).


DLP-G264 Enable Node Security Mode

Purpose

This task enables the ONS 15454 security mode. When security mode is enabled, two IP addresses are assigned to the node. One address is assigned to the backplane LAN port and the other to the TCC2P RJ-45 TCP/IP (LAN) port. The TCC2 card does not support security mode.

Tools/Equipment

TCC2P cards must be installed. Do not install a mix of TCC2 and TCC2P cards.

Note You cannot upgrade a Software Release 7.0 single-shelf node to a multishelf node if the security mode is enabled.



Caution The IP address assigned to the TCC2P TCP/IP (LAN) port must reside on a different subnet from the backplane LAN port and the ONS 15454 default router. Verify that the new TCC2P IP address meets this requirement and is compatible with ONE 15454 network IP addresses.


Note The node will reboot after you complete this task, causing a temporary disconnection between the CTC computer and the node.



Step 1 Click the Provisioning > Security > Data Comm tabs.


Note The security mode options are not available in CTC if TCC2 cards or a mix of TCC2 and TCC2P cards are installed.


Step 2 Click Change Mode.

Step 3 Review the information on the Change Secure Mode page, then click Next.

Step 4 On the TCC Ethernet Port page, enter the IP address and subnet mask for the TCC2P TCP/IP (LAN) port. The IP address cannot reside on the same subnet as the backplane LAN port or the ONS 15454 default router.

Step 5 Click Next.

Step 6 If needed, on the Backplane Ethernet Port page, modify the backplane IP address, subnet mask, and default router. (You normally do not modify these fields if no ONS 15454 network changes have occurred.)

Step 7 Click Next.

Step 8 On the SOCKS Proxy Server Settings page, choose one of the following options:

External Network Element (ENE)—If selected, the CTC computer is only visible to the ONS 15454 where the CTC computer is connected. The CTC computer is not visible to the nodes connected to the data communications channel (DCC). In addition, firewall is enabled, which means that the node prevents IP traffic from being routed between the DCC and the LAN port.

Gateway Network Element (GNE)—If selected, the CTC computer is visible to other DCC-connected nodes. The node prevents IP traffic from being routed between the DCC and the LAN port.


Note The SOCKS proxy server is automatically enabled when you enable secure mode.


Step 9 Click Finish.

Within the next 30 to 40 seconds, the TCC2P cards reboot. CTC switches to network view, and the CTC Alerts dialog box appears. In network view, the node changes to gray and a DISCONNECTED condition appears in the Alarms tab.

Step 10 In the CTC Alerts dialog box, click Close. Wait for the reboot to finish. (This might take several minutes.)

Step 11 After the DISCONNECTED condition clears, complete the following steps to suppress the backplane IP address from appearing in CTC and the LCD. If you do not want to suppress the backplane IP address display, continue with Step 12.

a. Display the node in node view (single-shelf mode) or multishelf view (multishelf mode).

b. Click the Provisioning > Security > Data Comm tabs.

c. In the LCD IP Setting field, choose Suppress Display. The IP address will not appear on the ONS 15454 LCD.

d. Check the Suppress CTC IP Address check box. The IP address will not appear in the CTC information area or the Provisioning > Security > Data Comm tabs.

e. Click Apply.


Note After you turn on secure mode, the TCC2P IP address becomes the node IP address.


Step 12 Return to your originating procedure (NTP).


DLP-G58 Create a Static Route

Purpose

This task creates a static route to establish CTC connectivity to a computer on another network. This task is performed when one of the following conditions exists:

CTC computers on one subnet need to connect to ONS 15454 nodes that are connected by a router to ONS 15454 nodes residing on another subnet.

OSPF is not enabled (OSPF Active on LAN check box on the Provisioning > Network > OSPF tab) and the External Network Element (ENE) gateway setting is not checked.

You need to enable multiple CTC sessions among ONS 15454 nodes residing on the same subnet and the External Network Element (ENE) gateway setting is not checked.

Step 3 In the Create Static Route dialog box, enter the following:

Destination—Enter the IP address of the computer running CTC. To limit access to one computer, enter the full IP address and a subnet mask of 255.255.255.255. To allow access to all computers on the 192.168.1.0 subnet, enter 192.168.1.0 and a subnet mask of 255.255.255.0. You can enter a destination of 0.0.0.0 to allow access to all CTC computers that connect to the router.

Mask—Enter a subnet mask. If the destination is a host route (that is, one CTC computer), enter a 32-bit subnet mask (255.255.255.255). If the destination is a subnet, adjust the subnet mask accordingly, for example, 255.255.255.0. If the destination is 0.0.0.0, CTC automatically enters a subnet mask of 0.0.0.0 to provide access to all CTC computers. You cannot change this value.

Next Hop—Enter the IP address of the router port or the node IP address if the CTC computer is connected to the node directly.

Cost—Enter the number of hops between the ONS 15454 and the computer.

Step 4 Click OK. Verify that the static route appears in the Static Route window.

Security Level

Provisioning or higher



Step 1 In node view (single-shelf mode) or multishelf view (multishelf mode), click the Provisioning > Network > OSPF tabs.

Step 2 On the top left side of the OSPF area, complete the following:

DCC/GCC OSPF Area ID Table—In dotted decimal format, enter the number that identifies the ONS 15454 nodes as a unique OSPF area ID. The Area ID can be any number between 000.000.000.000 and 255.255.255.255, but must be unique to the LAN OSPF area.

SDCC Metric—This value is normally unchanged. It sets a cost for sending packets across the Section DCC, which is used by OSPF routers to calculate the shortest path. This value should always be higher than the LAN metric. The default SDCC metric is 100.

LDCC Metric—Sets a cost for sending packets across the Line DCC. This value should always be lower than the SDCC metric. The default LDCC metric is 33. It is usually not changed.

Step 3 In the OSPF on LAN area, complete the following:

OSPF active on LAN—When checked, enables the ONS 15454 OSPF topology to be advertised to OSPF routers on the LAN. Enable this field on ONS 15454 nodes that directly connect to OSPF routers.

LAN Port Area ID—Enter the OSPF area ID (dotted decimal format) for the router port where the ONS 15454 is connected. (This number is different from the DCC/GCC OSPF Area ID.)

Step 4 By default, OSPF is set to No Authentication. If the OSPF router requires authentication, complete the following steps. If not, continue with Step 5.

a. Click the No Authentication button.

b. In the Edit Authentication Key dialog box, complete the following:

Type—Choose Simple Password.

Enter Authentication Key—Enter the password.

Confirm Authentication Key—Enter the same password to confirm it.

c. Click OK.

The authentication button label changes to Simple Password.

Step 5 Provision the OSPF priority and interval settings.

The OSPF priority and interval defaults are the defaults most commonly used by OSPF routers. Verify that these defaults match the ones used by the OSPF router where the ONS 15454 is connected.

Router Priority—Selects the designated router for a subnet.

Hello Interval (sec)—Sets the number of seconds between OSPF hello packet advertisements sent by OSPF routers. Ten seconds is the default.

Dead Interval—Sets the number of seconds that will pass while an OSPF router's packets are not visible before its neighbors declare the router down. Forty seconds is the default.

Transit Delay (sec)—Indicates the service speed. One second is the default.

Retransmit Interval (sec)—Sets the time that will elapse before a packet is resent. Five seconds is the default.

LAN Metric—Sets a cost for sending packets across the LAN. This value should always be lower than the SDCC metric. Ten is the default.

Step 6 Under OSPF Area Range Table, create an area range table if one is needed:


Note Area range tables consolidate the information that is outside an OSPF area border. One ONS 15454 in the ONS 15454 OSPF area is connected to the OSPF router. An area range table on this node points the router to the other nodes that reside within the ONS 15454 OSPF area.


a. Under OSPF Area Range Table, click Create.

b. In the Create Area Range dialog box, enter the following:

Range Address—Enter the area IP address for the ONS 15454 nodes that reside within the OSPF area. For example, if the ONS 15454 OSPF area includes nodes with IP addresses 10.10.20.100, 10.10.30.150, 10.10.40.200, and 10.10.50.250, the range address would be 10.10.0.0.

Range Area ID—Enter the OSPF area ID for the ONS 15454 nodes. This is either the ID in the DCC OSPF Area ID field or the ID in the Area ID for LAN Port field.

Mask Length—Enter the subnet mask length. In the Range Address example, this is 16.

Advertise—Check if you want to advertise the OSPF range table.

c. Click OK.

Step 7 All OSPF areas must be connected to Area 0. If the ONS 15454 OSPF area is not physically connected to Area 0, use the following steps to create a virtual link table that will provide the disconnected area with a logical path to Area 0:

a. Under OSPF Virtual Link Table, click Create.

b. In the Create Virtual Link dialog box, complete the following fields. OSPF settings must match OSPF settings for the ONS 15454 OSPF area:

Neighbor—The router ID of the Area 0 router.

Transit Delay (sec)—The service speed. One second is the default.

Hello Int (sec)—The number of seconds between OSPF hello packet advertisements sent by OSPF routers. Ten seconds is the default.

Auth Type—If the router where the ONS 15454 is connected uses authentication, choose Simple Password. Otherwise, choose No Authentication.

Retransmit Int (sec)—Sets the time that will elapse before a packet is resent. Five seconds is the default.

Dead Int (sec)—Sets the number of seconds that will pass while an OSPF router's packets are not visible before its neighbors declare the router down. Forty seconds is the default.

c. Click OK.

Step 8 After entering ONS 15454 OSPF area data, click Apply.

If you changed the Area ID, the TCC2/TCC2P cards reset, one at a time. The reset takes approximately 10 to 15 minutes.

Step 9 Return to your originating procedure (NTP).

Caution Do not complete this task until you confirm the role of the node within the network. It will be either an End System (ES), Intermediate System (IS) Level 1, or IS Level 1/Level 2. This decision must be carefully considered. For additional information about OSI provisioning, refer to the "Management Network Connectivity" chapter of the Cisco ONS 15454 DWDM Reference Manual.


Caution Link State Protocol (LSP) buffers must be the same at all NEs within the network, or loss of visibility might occur. Do not modify the LSP buffers unless you confirm that all NEs within the OSI have the same buffer size.


Caution LSP buffer sizes cannot be greater than the LAP-D maximum transmission unit (MTU) size within the OSI area.


Note For ONS 15454 nodes, three virtual routers can be provisioned. The node primary Network Service Access Point (NSAP) address is also the Router 1 primary manual area address. To edit the primary NSAP, you must edit the Router 1 primary manual area address. After you enable Router 1 on the Routers subtab, the Change Primary Area Address button is available to edit the address.



Step 1 In node view (single-shelf mode) or multishelf view (multishelf mode), click the Provisioning > OSI tabs.

Step 2 Choose a routing mode:

End System—The ONS 15454 performs OSI end system (ES) functions and relies upon an intermediate system (IS) for communication with nodes that reside within its OSI area.


Note The End System routing mode is not available if more than one virtual router is enabled.


Intermediate System Level 1—The ONS 15454 performs OSI IS functions. It communicates with IS and ES nodes that reside within its OSI area. It depends upon an IS L1/L2 node to communicate with IS and ES nodes that reside outside its OSI area.

Intermediate System Level 1/Level 2—The ONS 15454 performs IS functions. It communicates with IS and ES nodes that reside within its OSI area. It also communicates with IS L1/L2 nodes that reside in other OSI areas. Before choosing this option, verify the following:

The node is connected to another IS Level 1/Level 2 node that resides in a different OSI area.

The node is connected to all nodes within its area that are provisioned as IS L1/L2.

Step 3 If needed, change the LSP data buffers:

L1 LSP Buffer Size—Adjusts the Level 1 link state PDU buffer size. The default is 512. It should not be changed.

L2 LSP Buffer Size—Adjusts the Level 2 link state PDU buffer size. The default is 512. It should not be changed.

Step 4 Return to your originating procedure (NTP).

Step 1 In node view (single-shelf mode) or multishelf view (multishelf mode), click the Provisioning > OSI > TARP > Config tabs.

Step 2 Provision the following parameters, as needed:

TARP PDUs L1 Propagation—If checked (default), TARP Type 1 PDUs that are received by the node and are not excluded by the LDB are propagated to other NEs within the Level 1 OSI area. (Type 1 PDUs request a protocol address that matches a target identifier [TID] within a Level 1 routing area.) The propagation does not occur if the NE is the target of the Type 1 PDU, and PDUs are not propagated to the NE from which the PDU was received.


Note The TARP PDUs L1 Propagation parameter is not used when the Node Routing Area (on the Provisioning > OSI > Main Setup tab) is set to End System.


TARP PDUs L2 Propagation—If checked (default), TARP Type 2 PDUs that are received by the node and are not excluded by the LDB are propagated to other NEs within the Level 2 OSI areas. (Type 2 PDUs request a protocol address that matches a TID within a Level 2 routing area.) The propagation occurs if the NE is not the target of the Type 2 PDU, and PDUs are not propagated to the NE from which the PDU was received.


Note The TARP PDUs L2 Propagation parameter is only used when the Node Routing Area is provisioned to Intermediate System Level 1/Level 2.


TARP PDUs Origination—If checked (default), the node performs all TARP origination functions including:

TID to NSAP resolution requests (originate TARP Type 1 and Type 2 PDUs)

NSAP to TID requests (originate Type 5 PDUs)

TARP address changes (originate Type 4 PDUs)


Note TARP Echo and NSAP to TID are not supported.


TARP Data Cache—If checked (default), the node maintains a TARP data cache (TDC). The TDC is a database of TID to NSAP pairs created from TARP Type 3 PDUs received by the node and modified by TARP Type 4 PDUs (TID to NSAP updates or corrections). TARP 3 PDUs are responses to Type 1 and Type 2 PDUs. The TDC can also be populated with static entries entered on the TARP > Static TDC tab.


Note TARP Data Cache is only used when the TARP PDUs Origination parameter is enabled.


L2 TARP Data Cache—If checked (default), the TIDs and NSAPs of NEs originating Type 2 requests are added to the TDC before the node propagates the requests to other NEs.


Note The L2 TARP Data Cache parameter is designed for Intermediate System Level 1/Level 2 nodes that are connected to other Intermediate System Level 1/Level 2 nodes. Enabling the parameter for Intermediate System Level 1 nodes is not recommended.


LDB—If checked (default), enables the TARP loop detection buffer. The LDB prevents TARP PDUs from being sent more than once on the same subnet.


Note The LDB parameter is not used if the Node Routing Mode is provisioned to End System or if the TARP PDUs L1 Propagation parameter is not enabled.


LAN TARP Storm Suppression—If checked (default), enables TARP storm suppression. This function prevents redundant TARP PDUs from being unnecessarily propagated across the LAN network.

Send Type 4 PDU on Startup—If checked, a TARP Type 4 PDU is originated during the initial ONS 15454 startup. Type 4 PDUs indicate that a TID or NSAP change has occurred at the NE. (The default setting is not enabled.)

Type 4 PDU Delay—Sets the amount of time that will pass before the Type 4 PDU is generated when Send Type 4 PDU on Startup is enabled. 60 seconds is the default. The range is 0 to 255 seconds.


Note The Send Type 4 PDU on Startup and Type 4 PDU Delay parameters are not used if TARP PDUs Origination is not enabled.


LDB Entry—Sets the TARP loop detection buffer timer. The loop detection buffer time is assigned to each LDB entry for which the TARP sequence number (tar-seq) is zero. The default is 5 minutes. The range is 1 to 10 minutes.

LDB Flush—Sets the frequency period for flushing the LDB. The default is 5 minutes. The range is 0 to 1440 minutes.

T1—Sets the amount of time to wait for a response to a Type 1 PDU. Type 1 PDUs seek a specific NE TID within an OSI Level 1 area. The default is 15 seconds. The range is 0 to 3600 seconds.

T2—Sets the amount of time to wait for a response to a Type 2 PDU. TARP Type 2 PDUs seek a specific NE TID value within OSI Level 1 and Level 2 areas. The default is 25 seconds. The range is 0 to 3600 seconds.

T3—Sets the amount of time to wait for an address resolution request. The default is 40 seconds. The range is 0 to 3600 seconds.

T4—Sets the amount of time to wait for an error recovery. This timer begins after the T2 timer expires without finding the requested NE TID. The default is 20 seconds. The range is 0 to 3600 seconds.


Note The T1, T2, and T4 timers are not used if TARP PDUs Origination is not enabled.

Step 3 In the Enable LAN Subnet dialog box, complete the following fields:

ESH—Sets the End System Hello (ESH) propagation frequency. An end system NE transmits ESHs to inform other ESs and ISs about the NSAPs it serves. The default is 10 seconds. The range is 10 to 1000 seconds.

ISH—Sets the Intermediate System Hello (ISH) PDU propagation frequency. An intermediate system NE sends ISHs to other ESs and ISs to inform them about the IS NEs it serves. The default is 10 seconds. The range is 10 to 1000 seconds.

IIH—Sets the Intermediate System to Intermediate System Hello (IIH) PDU propagation frequency. The IS-IS Hello PDUs establish and maintain adjacencies between ISs. The default is 3 seconds. The range is 1 to 600 seconds.

IS-IS Cost—Sets the cost for sending packets on the LAN subnet. The IS-IS protocol uses the cost to calculate the shortest routing path. The default IS-IS cost for LAN subnets is 20. It normally should not be changed.

DIS Priority—Sets the designated intermediate system (DIS) priority. In IS-IS networks, one router is elected to serve as the DIS (LAN subnets only). Cisco router DIS priority is 64. For the ONS 15454 LAN subnet, the default DIS priority is 63. It normally should not be changed.

Caution IP-over-CLNS tunnels require two endpoints. You will create one point on an ONS 15454. The other endpoint is generally provisioned on non-ONS equipment including routers and other vendor NEs. Before you begin, verify that you have the capability to create an OSI-over-CLNS tunnel on the other equipment location.


Step 1 Click the Provisioning > OSI > Tunnels tabs.

Step 2 Click Create.

Step 3 In the Create IP Over CLNS Tunnel dialog box, complete the following fields:

Tunnel Type—Choose a tunnel type:

Cisco—Creates the proprietary Cisco IP tunnel. Cisco IP tunnels add the CLNS header to the IP packets.

GRE—Creates a Generic Routing Encapsulation tunnel. GRE tunnels add the CLNS header and a GRE header to the IP packets.

The Cisco proprietary tunnel is slightly more efficient than the GRE tunnel because it does not add the GRE header to each IP packet. The two tunnel types are not compatible. Most Cisco routers support the Cisco IP tunnel, while only a few support both GRE and Cisco IP tunnels. You generally should create Cisco IP tunnels if you are tunneling between two Cisco routers or between a Cisco router and an ONS node.


Caution Always verify that the IP-over-CLNS tunnel type that you choose is supported by the equipment at the other end of the tunnel.

IP Address—Enter the IP address of the IP-over-CLNS tunnel destination.

IP Mask—Enter the IP address subnet mask of the IP-over-CLNS destination.

OSPF Metric—Enter the OSPF metric for sending packets across the IP-over-CLNS tunnel. The OSPF metric, or cost, is used by OSPF routers to calculate the shortest path. The default is 110. Normally, it is not be changed unless you are creating multiple tunnel routes and want to prioritize routing by assigning different metrics.

NSAP Address—Enter the destination NE or OSI router NSAP address.

Step 4 Click OK.

Step 5 Provision the other tunnel endpoint using the documentation provided by the manufacturer of the third party vendor NE.

Step 1 Complete the "DLP-G46 Log into CTC" task at the node where you want to set up SNMP. If you are already logged in, continue with Step 2.

Step 2 In node view (single-shelf mode) or multishelf view (multishelf mode), click the Provisioning > SNMP tabs.

Step 3 In the Trap Destinations area, click Create.

Step 4 Complete the following in the Create SNMP Trap Destination dialog box (Figure 3-8):

Destination IP Address—Type the IP address of your network management system (NMS). If the node you are logged into is an ENE, set the destination address to the GNE.

Community—Type the SNMP community name. For a description of SNMP community names, refer to the "SNMP" chapter in the Cisco ONS 15454 DWDM Reference Manual.


Note The community name is a form of authentication and access control. The community name assigned to the ONS 15454 is case-sensitive and must match the community name of the NMS.


UDP Port—The default User Datagram Protocol (UDP) port for SNMP is 162.

Trap Version—Choose either SNMPv1 or SNMPv2. Refer to your NMS documentation to determine which version to use.

Figure 3-8 Creating an SNMP Trap

Step 5 Click OK. The node IP address of the node where you provisioned the new trap destination appears in the Trap Destinations area.

Step 6 Click the node IP address in the Trap Destinations area. Verify the SNMP information that appears in the Selected Destination list.

Step 7 If you want the SNMP agent to accept SNMP SET requests on certain MIBs, click the Allow SNMP Sets check box. If this box is not checked, SET requests are rejected.

Step 8 If you want to set up the SNMP proxy feature to allow network management, message reporting, and performance statistic retrieval across ONS firewalls, click the Allow SNMP Proxy check box located on the SNMP tab.


Note The Use Generic MIB check box is normally not checked for MSTP. It is checked only when the ONS 15454 resides in networks with multiple ONS products, and the network management system requires MIBs with the same name to have the same object IDs. By default, the ONS 15454 uses the CERENT-454-MIBs. Other ONS products, such as the ONS 15600, the ONS 15327, and ONS 15310-CL, use the CERENT-GENERIC-MIBs. If Use Generic MIB is checked, the ONS 15454 will use the CERENT-GENERIC-MIBs so the object IDs will be the same for all products.



Note Using the ONS firewall proxy feature effectively breaches the ONS firewall to exchange management information.


For more information about the SNMP proxy feature, refer to the "SNMP" chapter in the Cisco ONS 15454 DWDM Reference Manual.

Step 9 Click Apply.

Step 10 If you are setting up SNMP proxies, you can set up to three relays that send SNMP trap error counts back to the NE for each trap destination address:

a. Click the first trap destination IP address. The address and its community name appear in the Destination fields.

b. Enter up to three SNMP Proxy relay addresses and community names in the fields for Relay A, Relay B, and Relay C.


Note The community names specified for each relay node must match one of the provisioned SNMP community names in the NE.



Note The SNMP proxy directs SNMP traps from this node through IpA to IpB to IpC to the trap destination. Ensure that you enter the IP addresses in the correct order so that this sequence runs correctly.


Step 11 Click Apply.

Stop. You have completed this procedure.


NTP-G143 Import the Cisco MetroPlanner NE Update Configuration File

Purpose

This procedure imports the Cisco MetroPlanner NE Update configuration file. The configuration file, which is provided in XML format, provisions the shelf layout, sets the OPT-AMP-L mode (if present), and installs the automatic node setup (ANS) parameters calculated by Cisco MetroPlanner.

Caution Verify that you have the correct Cisco MetroPlanner network file before you begin this procedure. The file will have an XML extension and a name assigned by your network planner. Check with your network planner or administrator if you have any questions.


Step 1 Complete the "DLP-G46 Log into CTC" task at the node where you want to import the Cisco MetroPlanner configuration file. If you are already logged in, continue with Step 2.

Step 2 If you will choose the Provision Node Layout option to preprovision the cards in the shelf, complete the following steps. If not, continue with Step 3.

a. Display the node in node view (single-shelf mode) or multishelf view (multishelf mode).

b. Verify that two TCC2/TCC2P cards are the only cards installed. If in multishelf mode, verify that each shelf in the multishelf has two TCC2/TCC2P cards.

If two TCC2/TCC2P cards are the only cards installed, continue with Step 3.

If other cards appear, continue with Step c.

c. If a physical card is installed, remove it from the shelf.

d. Delete the preprovisioned cards using the "DLP-G351 Delete a Card in CTC" task, then repeat Steps a and b.

Step 3 If you have not created a log file to record the results of the NE update, complete the following steps. If a log file has been created, continue with Step 4,

a. Open a text editor or word processing application.

b. Create a new text (.TXT) document with a file name of your choosing.

c. Save the document in a directory that is easy to navigate to from CTC.

Step 4 In CTC node view (single-shelf mode) or multishelf view, click the Provisioning > WDM-ANS > Node Setup tabs.

Step 5 In the field under Select XML file, type the path to the Cisco MetroPlanner node setup file containing the parameters for the network where your node resides, or click Browse and navigate to the file on your computer or network server. Click the file, then click Open. The file will have an XML extension.

Step 6 In the field under Select Log file, type the path to the text file created in Step 3 where you want the node setup results recorded, or click Browse and navigate to the file on your computer or a network server.


Note Each node setup session overwrites the log file contents. If you want to save the results, save the log file with new name.


Step 7 Click Apply. Either the Node Setup Selection for node name or Node Setup for node name will appear, where node name is the name of the node where you are importing the Cisco MetroPlanner configuration file. In a node with multishelf setup containing DWDM units, the top shelf is labeled as node name_1. All the other shelves are labelled as node name_2, node name_3 and so on.

Step 8 If the Node Setup Selection for node name page appears, complete the following steps. If not, continue with Step 9.

a. Choose the node profile that you want to apply to the node. The Cisco MetroPlanner XML file contains profiles for all nodes in the network. Choose the profile that applies to the node you are provisioning.

b. Click Next.

Step 9 On the Node Setup for node name page, choose one or more of the following:

Provision Node Layout—Preprovisions the slots in CTC for the cards required by the network plan. Choose this option when no DWDM cards are installed. (Errors will occur if cards are installed or the slots are preprovisioned.) Preprovisioning the slots before the physical cards are installed ensures that card installers place the cards in the correct slots. Preprovisioning the slots is also useful if you want to set up the network prior to card installation.

Provision Card Parameters—This option is available only when an OPT-AMP-L card will be installed. If you check the box, ANS provisions the OPT-AMP-L role, either as an L-band booster amplifier (OPT-LINE) or an L-band preamplifier (OPT-PRE).

Provision ANS Parameters—If checked, installs the ANS parameters. ANS parameters provision the values required for the node to function within the specified network design. ANS parameters include span losses, optical power, optics thresholds, amplifier working mode, gain, tilt, and many others. Refer to the "Node Reference" chapter in the Cisco ONS 15454 DWDM Reference Manual for a list of ONS 15454 ANS parameters.


Note If you are importing the Cisco MetroPlanner configuration file for the first time, you normally choose all three options.


Skip Interactive Mode—If checked, CTC provisions all the chosen setup components automatically without allowing you to view the results after each one.

Step 10 Click Next. The wizard page that appears depends on the options chosen in Step 9:

If you chose Skip Interactive Mode, continue with Step 15.

If you chose Provision Node Layout (regardless of whether you chose Provision Card Parameters and/or Provision ANS Parameters), continue with Step 11.

If you chose Provision Card Parameters, but not Provision Node Layout, continue with Step 13.

If you chose Provision ANS Parameters, but not Provision Node Layout or Provision ANS Parameters, continue with Step 14.

Step 11 View the cards and slots on the left side of the page and verify that they are the same as the layout in the Cisco MetroPlanner Shelf Layout (see Table 3-1). If the cards and slots match, click Apply. If not, click Cancel. and contact your next level of support to verify that you have the correct node setup file. If the site has a multishelf configuration, click Next and repeat this step for each shelf at the site.

CTC preprovisions the slots. (This might take a few seconds.) The results appear in the Log window. Slots that are successfully provisioned display an "Applied" status. A "Slot not empty" status appears if slots cannot be provisioned because a card is physically installed or the slot is already provisioned. If this occurs, complete the following steps. Otherwise, continue with Step 12.

a. Click Cancel, then click Yes at the confirmation. The slot preprovisioning does not revert when you click Cancel.

b. If a physical card is installed, remove it from the shelf.

c. Perform one of the following steps:

Delete all the preprovisioned slots using the "DLP-G351 Delete a Card in CTC" task, then repeat Steps 2 through 11.

Delete the slot where the Slot Not Empty error occurred using the "DLP-G351 Delete a Card in CTC" task. Complete the "DLP-G353 Preprovision a Single Slot" task to provision the slot manually, then repeat Steps 2 through 11 making sure to uncheck the Provision Node Layout option in Step 9.


Note When you preprovision a slot, the card is purple in the CTC shelf graphic and an NP (not present) appears on the card. After the physical card is installed, the card changes to white and the NP is removed in the CTC shelf graphic.


Step 12 Choose one of the following steps, based on the choices made in Step 9:

If you chose Provision Card Parameters with or without Provision ANS Parameters, continue with Step 13.

If you chose Provision ANS Parameters, but not Provision Card Parameters, continue with Step 14.

If you chose Provision Node only, continue with Step 15.

Step 13 Click Next. On the Card Parameters page, review the OPT-AMP-L role(s) indicated under the Value column, either PRE_AMPL (L-band optical preamplifier) or BST_AMPL (L band optical booster), then click Apply.

Step 14 If the Provision ANS Parameters box was chosen in Step 9, complete the following steps. If not, continue with Step 15.

a. Click Next.

b. Review the ANS parameters on the left half of the page.

c. Click Apply. The log file will display the results. At the end, a Done status will appear. If a parameter could not be applied, a Setting Refused status appears. If this occurs, contact your next level of support.

Step 15 Click Finish, then click OK in the Wizard Complete confirmation dialog box.


Note MS-ISC-100T cards are not provisioned by Cisco MetroPlanner.

Warning Invisible laser radiation may be emitted from the end of the unterminated fiber cable or connector. Do not view 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 may pose an eye hazard. Statement 1056

Warning High-performance devices on this card can get hot during operation. To remove the card, hold it by the faceplate and bottom edge. Allow the card to cool before touching any other part of it or before placing it in an antistatic bag. Statement 201

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


Note For US installations, complies with the US Federal Drug Administration Code of Federal Regulations Title 21, Sections 1040.10 and 1040.11, except for deviations pursuant to Laser Notice No. 50, dated July 26, 2001.



Note If protective clips are installed on the backplane connectors of the cards, remove the clips before installing the cards.



Note If you install a card incorrectly, the FAIL LED flashes continuously.



Step 1 If the node requires a custom network element (NE) default settings to be installed on the node, complete the "NTP-G136 Import Network Element Defaults" procedure. If not, continue with Step 2. (For information about the ONS 15454 NE defaults, refer to the "Network Elements Defaults" appendix in the Cisco ONS 15454 DWDM Reference Manual.)


Caution If custom NE defaults are required, they must be installed before you install the DWDM cards.

Step 2 Verify that you have one of the following guides for the DWDM card installation:

The slots that were preprovisioned when you completed the "NTP-G143 Import the Cisco MetroPlanner NE Update Configuration File" procedure.

The Cisco MetroPlanner shelf layout report (see Table 3-1).

Step 3 If the slots are preprovisioned, continue with Step 4. If you are using the Cisco MetroPlanner shelf layout report, complete the "DLP-G348 Use the Cisco MetroPlanner Shelf Layout Report" task.

Step 4 Remove a DWDM card from its packaging, then remove the protective caps from the backplane connectors. (Safety caps are typically yellow.)

Step 5 Open the card latches/ejectors.

Step 6 Use the latches/ejectors to firmly slide the card along the slot guide rails until the card plugs into the receptacle at the back of the slot. The correct slot is designated by the Cisco MetroPlanner shelf layout.

Step 7 Verify that the card is inserted correctly. Simultaneously close the latches/ejectors on the card.


Note It is possible to close the latches/ejectors when the card is not completely plugged in. Ensure that you cannot insert the card any further.


After installing the card, the following LED activity will occur:

The card's LEDs will go through a sequence of activities (turn on, turn off, blinking.) This will take 2-3 minutes.

The ACT LED turns on.

The signal fail (SF) LED might persist until all card ports connect to their far-end counterparts and a signal is present.

Step 8 If the card does not boot up properly, or the LED activity is not similar to the activity in Step 7, check the following:

When a physical card type does not match the type of card provisioned for that slot in CTC, the card might not boot. If a DWDM card does not boot, open CTC and ensure that the slot is not provisioned for a different card type before assuming that the card is faulty.

If the red FAIL LED does not turn on, check the power.

If you insert a card into a slot provisioned for a different card, all LEDs turn off and a minor equipment mismatch alarm appears on the CTC Alarms tab.

If the red FAIL LED is on continuously or the LEDs behave erratically, the card is not installed.

If any of conditions are present, remove the card and repeat Steps 4 to 7. If the card does not boot up properly the second time, it might be defective. Contact your next level of support.

Step 9 Repeat Steps 4 through 8 until all the DWDM cards are installed in the node.

Step 10 If OPT-PRE cards are installed, complete one of the following steps for each OPT-PRE card based on the Cisco MetroPlanner shelf layout. If OPT-PRE cards are not installed, you have completed this procedure.

If the Cisco MetroPlanner shelf layout does not include dispersion compensating units (DCUs), install a patchcord and 4-dB attenuator with a tolerance of +/-1 dB between the OPT-PRE DC TX and RX ports for each OPT-PRE card installed in the shelf.

If the shelf layout includes DCUs, complete the "NTP-G31 Install the DWDM Dispersion Compensating Units" procedure for each side of the shelf that requires a DCU.

Step 1 Display the Cisco MetroPlanner Internal Connections report for the node that you are provisioning. The Internal Connections report is presented in two views, a patchcord installation view and a software provisioning view. Figure 3-12 shows an example patchcord installation view, and Figure 3-13 shows an example of a software provisioning view.

The table identifies the patchcords that you must cable by their endpoints. Position 1 identifies the fiber start point; Position 2 indicates the fiber endpoint. The patchcord endpoints are identified by site, slot, and port. Information provided by the Internal Connections report includes:

Name—Displays the name of the site. On the software provisioning view, this column indicates whether you must create the connection manually in CTC. A Yes appearing in this column means that you must create the connection manually.

Position-1—The cable origination in the format is Rack.Shelf.Port. For example, Rack#1.Main Shelf.02 refers to Slot 2 in the main (DWDM) shelf of Rack 1. Refer to the Cisco MetroPlanner Site Dialog for rack and shelf names and locations.

Unit-1—The ONS 15454 DWDM card (unit) that is installed in the Position-1 slot. This is where the patchcord originates.

Port#-1—The port identifier shown in the CTC for the first Position-1 connection.

Port ID-1—(Software provisioning view only) The port identifier shown in TL1 for the Position-1 connection.

Port Label-1—The name of the physical port printed on the card's front panel and shown in CTC card view for the Position-1 connection.

Attenuator—If attenuation is required, the product ID (PID) of the bulk fixed attenuator is shown. "Att-Lpbk-4dB" indicates that the DC TX and DC RX ports on an OPT-PRE card are to be connected with an attenuated loopback that is shipped with the OPT-PRE card. This parameter also indicates when an internal attenuator must be placed between the OPT-PRE DC-TX and DC-RX ports on the when a DCU is equipped.


Note If the Attenuator field is blank, no attenuation is needed.


Position-2—The cable termination in the format is Rack.Shelf.Port. For example, Rack#1.Main Shelf.02 refers to Slot 2 in the main shelf of Rack 1. Refer to the Cisco MetroPlanner Site Dialog window for rack and shelf names and locations.

Unit-2—The ONS 15454 DWDM card that is installed in the Position-2 slot. This is where the cabling terminates.

Port #2—The port identifier shown in CTC for the first Position-2 connection.

Port ID-2—(Software provisioning view only) The port identifier shown in TL1 for the Position-2 connection.

Port Label-2—The name of the physical port printed on the card's front panel and shown in CTC card view for the Position-2 connection.

P/F—Indicates whether you must create the connection manually in CTC. A Yes appearing in this column means that you must create the connection manually.


Caution Failure to create the required manual connections will prevent the node from turning up properly.

As needed, route slack fiber-optic cable around the round cable retainers in theY-cable module tray as you install cables between the Y-cable module and the TXP or MXP card (Figure 3-24).

Figure 3-24 Y-Cable Protection Module Tray


Caution When you close the Y-cable module tray, the cables must not be pinched, and the cable bend radius must be equal to or greater than the minimum radius that is recommended in your site specifications. As you route each cable through the tray, make sure that adequate cable slack remains.

Step 4 Referring to the Cisco MetroPlanner Internal Connections Report, install a fiber-optic cable of adequate length (single-mode or multimode, as appropriate) between the Y-cable module and the client signal that you want to protect.

Step 5 As needed, route slack fiber-optic cable around the round cable retainers in theY-cable module tray as you install cables between the Y-cable module and the TXP or MXP card.

Step 6 Repeat Steps 2 through 5 for each Y-cable module you need to use for Y-cable protection.

Step 7 To close the tray, unlock the drawer from the open position by depressing the red lock at the back left of the tray and push the tray closed.

Step 8 Return to your originating procedure (NTP).


NTP-G152 Create and Verify Internal Patchcords

Step 1 Complete the "DLP-G46 Log into CTC" task at the node where you want to provision the DWDM cable connections. If you are already logged in, continue with Step 2.

Step 2 In node view (single-shelf mode) or multishelf view (multishelf mode), click the Provisioning > WDM-ANS > Internal Patchcords tabs.

Step 3 Click Default Patchcords.

CTC verifies that the cards installed in the ONS 15454 shelf are compatible and will operate together as a valid DWDM node configuration. Furthermore, based on the cards installed or preprovisioned, CTC calculates the intra-shelf patchcords that are expected to be installed. If the cards are not compatible or are missing, for example, if an OPT-BST is installed but an OSCM card is not installed, the calculate connections function generates an error.


Note The Internal Connections tab does not show OPT-PRE DCU connections, span connections, or connections between the TXP/MXP cards and the DWDM cards.



Note The connections calculation is not based on the Cisco MetroPlanner shelf layout or Internal Connections Report. Calculations are based on the cards that are physically installed. If the Cisco MetroPlanner shelf layout calls for a hub node but OADM cards are installed, CTC calculates connections based on the cards expected for an OADM node.


Step 4 If no errors were generated, continue with Step 5. If errors appear, verify that the cards installed in the shelf match the Cisco MetroPlanner shelf layout. If the wrong cards are installed or are missing, install the correct cards following the "NTP-G30 Install the DWDM Cards" procedure.

Step 5 Verify that the connections in the CTC Connections tab match the connections in the Cisco MetroPlanner Internal Connections Report for the DWDM cards (see the "DLP-G349 Use the Cisco MetroPlanner Internal Connections Report" task). The CTC Connections tab will not show OPT-PRE DCUs, connections, span connections, or connections between TXP and MXP cards and the DWDM cards.

Step 6 Complete the "DLP-G354 Create an Internal Patchcord Manually" task for any connections that require manual provisioning. Connections that require manual creation appear under Manually Set: Yes in the Cisco MetroPlanner Internal Connections Report. If you need to delete a connection, complete the "DLP-G355 Delete an Internal Patchcord" task.


Note Although CTC calculates most DWDM connections automatically, some connections cannot be calculated because of the DWDM card type and position. You must create these connections manually. For example, connections related to optical bypass circuits must be manually provisioned.


Stop. You have completed this procedure.

Step 9 In the Apply Launch ANS dialog box, click Yes.

Step 10 In the Launch ANS confirmation dialog box, click OK.

Step 11 Verify that one of the following statuses appears in the Link Status column for all ports:

Success - Changed—The parameter setpoint was recalculated successfully.

Success - Unchanged—The parameter setpoint did not need recalculation.

Not Applicable—The parameter setpoint does not apply to this node type.

If one of the following statuses is shown, complete the provided instructions:

Fail - Out of Range—The calculated setpoint is outside the expected range. Repeat the "NTP-G152 Create and Verify Internal Patchcords" procedure to verify that all connections were provisioned correctly, paying attention to connections that require manual provisioning.


Note The Fail - Out of Range condition must be cleared before proceeding. Contact your next level of support if you are unable to clear this status.


Fail - Port in IS State—The parameter could not be calculated because the port is in service. This status should normally not appear at this point in node turn-up. If it does, display the card in card view, change the port administrative state to OOS,DSLB (ANSI) or Locked,disabled (ETSI), and repeat Steps 6 through 11.

Stop. You have completed this procedure.


NTP-G38 Provision OSC Terminations

Purpose

Step 4 In the Create OSC Terminations dialog box, choose the ports where you want to create the OSC termination. To select more than one port, press the Shift key (to select a range of ports) or the Ctrl key (to select multiple individual ports).


Note The number of OSC terminations you create depends on the node type defined by Cisco MetroPlanner. Terminal nodes require one OSC termination. Hub, OADM, and ROADM nodes require two OSC termination.


Step 5 In the Layer 3 area, check the OSI box if the OSC termination is between the ONS 15454 and another ONS node, and third party network elements (NEs) that use the OSI protocol stack are on the same network. If you checked OSI, complete the following steps. If not, continue with Step 6.

a. Click Next.

b. Provision the following fields:

Router—Choose the OSI router.

ESH—Set the ESH propagation frequency. End system NEs transmit ESHs to inform other ESs and ISs about the NSAPs they serve. The default is 10 seconds. The range is 10 to 1000 seconds.

ISH—Sets the ISH PDU propagation frequency. Intermediate system NEs send ISHs to other ESs and ISs to inform them about the IS NETs it serves. The default is 10 seconds. The range is 10 to 1000 seconds.

IIH—Sets the IIH PDU propagation frequency. The IS-IS Hello PDUs establish and maintain adjacencies between ISs. The default is 3 seconds. The range is 1 to 600 seconds.

Metric—Sets the cost for sending packets on the LAN subnet. The IS-IS protocol uses the cost to calculate the shortest routing path. The default metric cost for LAN subnets is 20. It normally should not be changed.

Step 6 Click Finish. Ports are automatically placed in service. The following alarms might appear in the node view (single-shelf mode) or multishelf view (multishelf mode) Alarms tab Description field. They will remain until all the network OSC connections between the adjacent nodes are created:

SDCC Termination Failure on the OSCM or OSC-CSM card

LOS on the OC-3 port (Port 1) on the OSCM, OSC-CSM, or OPT-BST card

OPWR-LFAIL on the OPT-BST or OSC-CSM card


Note After the OSC termination is created, the line ports are placed in service and span power levels are checked.


Stop. You have completed this procedure.

NTP-G163 Upgrade Nodes in Single-Shelf Mode to Multishelf Mode

Purpose

This procedure upgrades nodes in single-shelf mode to multishelf mode.

Tools/Equipment

The node you plan to use as the node controller must be equipped with optical units and cannot have a cross-connect card installed. Any nodes that you plan to add to the multishelf configuration as subtending shelves can be equipped with transponder and muxponder units. For more information on multishelf configurations, see the "Node Reference" chapter in the Cisco ONS 15454 DWDM Reference Manual.

Prerequisite Procedures

G22 Verify Common Card Installation

G145 Connect a Multishelf Node and Subtending Shelves to an MS-ISC-100T Card or

G158 Connect a Multishelf Node and Subtending Shelves to a Cisco Catalyst 2950

G267 Disable Node Security Mode

G347 Delete Optical Channel Client Connections if circuits exist on the transponder/muxponder shelf to be upgraded

G187 Delete a Provisionable Patchcord as needed on the transponder/muxponder shelf to be upgraded


Caution Upgrading a single-shelf transponder/muxponder shelf to a subtending shelf in a multishelf node is traffic affecting if OCHCC circuits exist on external patchcords between the OCh filters of the node controller and TXP/MXP trunk ports of the shelf to be upgraded. Before beginning the upgrade procedure, you must delete the OCHCC circuits and the external patchcords. You will replace them with internal patchcords between the optical shelf (node controller) and the preprovisioned TXP/MXP subtending shelf when performing the upgrade procedure.
