Note On the OC192-XFP and MRC-12 cards, the pluggable-port module (PPM) is equivalent to an optical port.



Step 1 Complete the "DLP-A60 Log into CTC" task at the node where you want to change the card service state.

Step 2 From node view, click the Inventory tab.

Step 3 Choose an Admin state from the Admin State drop-down list for the card or PPM that you want to change: IS (In-Service) or OOS,MT (Out-of-Service,Maintenance).

Step 4 Click Apply.

Step 5 If an error message appears indicating that the card state cannot be changed from its current state, click OK.

Depending on the Admin State you choose, the card or port/PPM transitions to a different service state. For more information about the service states and card state transitions, refer to the "Administrative and Service States" appendix of the Cisco ONS 15454 Reference Manual.

Stop. You have completed this procedure.


NTP-A322 Manage Pluggable Port Modules

Purpose

This procedure provisions, changes, and deletes pluggable port modules (PPMs) for the MRC-12 and OC192-XFP cards. (OC-192XFPs are single-rate PPMs, and therefore can only be deleted.)

Tools/Equipment

None

Prerequisite Procedures

A461 Preprovision an SFP or XFP Device or

A469 Install a GBIC or SFP/XFP Device

Required/As Needed

As needed

Onsite/Remote

Step 1 Complete the "DLP-A60 Log into CTC" task at the node where you want to provision, change, or delete PPMs. If you are already logged in, continue with Step 2.

Step 2 From the View menu, choose Go to Network View.

Step 3 Click the Alarms tab:

a. Verify that the alarm filter is not turned on. See the "DLP-A227 Disable Alarm Filtering" task as necessary.

b. Verify that no unexplained conditions appear on the network. If unexplained conditions appear, resolve them before continuing. Refer to the Cisco ONS 15454 Troubleshooting Guide.

c. Complete the "DLP-A532 Export CTC Data" task to export alarm and condition information.

Step 4 As needed, complete the "DLP-A444 Provision a PPM on the MRC-12 Card" task. Single-rate PPMs do not require provisioning.

Step 5 As needed, complete the "DLP-A445 Provision the Optical Line Rate on the MRC-12 Card" task to assign an OC-3, OC-12, or OC-48 line rate to a multirate PPM.

Step 6 As needed, complete the "DLP-A446 Change the Optical Line Rate on the MRC-12 Card" task to change the line rate on a multirate PPM. You cannot change the optical line rate on single-rate PPMs.

Step 7 As needed, complete the "DLP-A447 Delete a PPM from the MRC-12 or OC192-XFP Card" task.

Stop. You have completed this procedure.
