Step 1 From the card, node, or network view, click the Conditions tab.

Step 2 Click Retrieve (Figure 18-2).

The Retrieve button requests the current set of fault conditions from the node, card, or network. The window is not updated when events change on the node. You must click Retrieve to see any changes.

Figure 18-2 Node View Conditions Window

Conditions include all fault conditions raised on the node, whether or not they are reported.


Note Alarms can be unreported when they are filtered out of the display. See the "DLP-A225 Enable Alarm Filtering" task for information.


Events that are reported as Major (MJ), Minor (MN), or Critical (CR) severities are alarms. Events that are reported as Not-Alarmed (NA) are conditions. Conditions that are not reported at all are marked Not-Reported (NR) in the Conditions window severity column.

Conditions that have a default severity of Critical (CR), Major (MJ), Minor (MN), or Not-Alarmed (NA) but are not reported due to exclusion or suppression are shown as NR in the Conditions window.


Note For more information about alarm suppression, see the "DLP-A522 Suppress Alarm Reporting" task.


Current conditions are shown with the severity chosen in the alarm profile, if used. For more information about alarm profiles, see the "NTP-A71 Create, Download, and Assign Alarm Severity Profiles" procedure.


Note When a port is placed in the Out-of-Service and Management, Maintenance (OOS-MA,MT) service state, it raises an Alarms Suppressed for Maintenance (AS-MT) condition. For information about alarm and condition troubleshooting, refer to the Cisco ONS 15454 Troubleshooting Guide.


Step 3 If you want to apply exclusion rules, check the Exclude Same Root Cause check box at the node or network view, but do not check the Exclude Same Root Cause check box in card view.

An exclusion rule eliminates all lower-level alarms or conditions that originate from the same cause. For example, a fiber break may cause an LOS alarm, an AIS condition, and an SF condition. If you check the Exclude Same Root Cause check box, only the LOS alarm will appear. According to Telcordia, exclusion rules apply to a query of "all conditions from a node."

Step 3 Choose the STS circuit that has path trace provisioned on the source and destination ports, then click Edit.

Step 4 In the Edit Circuit window, click the Show Detailed Map check box at the bottom of the window. A detailed circuit graphic showing source and destination ports appears.

Step 5 In the detailed circuit map, right-click the circuit OC-N port (the square on the left or right of the source node icon) and choose Edit Path Trace from the shortcut menu.


Note The OC-N port must be on a receive-only card listed in Table 19-3. If not, the Edit Path Trace menu item will not appear.


Step 6 In the Circuit Path Trace window, enable the path trace expected string by choosing Auto or Manual from the Path Trace Mode drop-down list:

Auto—Uses the first string received from the port at the other path trace end as the current expected string. An alarm is raised when a string that differs from the baseline is received. For OC-N ports, Auto is recommended because Manual mode requires you to trace the circuit in the Edit Circuit window to determine whether the port is the source or destination path.

Manual—Uses the Current Expected String field as the baseline string. An alarm is raised when a string that differs from the Current Expected String is received.

Step 7 If you set the Path Trace Mode field to Manual, enter the string that the OC-N port should receive in the New Expected String field. To do this, trace the circuit path on the detailed circuit map to determine whether the port is in the circuit source or destination path, then set the New Expected String to the string transmitted by the circuit source or destination. If you set the Path Trace Mode field to Auto, skip this step.

Step 8 Click Apply, then click Close.

Step 1 In node view, click the Maintenance > Protection tabs.

Step 2 Click the protection group that contains Slot 3 or Slot 15 (where you will install the DS1N-14 card).

Step 3 Make sure the slot you are upgrading is not carrying working traffic. In the Selected Group list, the protect slot must say Protect/Standby, not Protect/Active. If the protect slot status is Protect/Active, switch traffic to the working card:

a. Under Selected Group, click the protect card.

b. Next to Switch Commands, click Switch.

The working slot should change to Working/Active and the protect slot should change to Protect/Standby. If they do not change, do not continue. Troubleshoot the working card and slot to determine why the card cannot carry working traffic.

Step 4 Repeat Steps 1 through 3 for each protection group that you need to convert.

Step 5 Click the Alarms tab to verify that no standing alarms exist for any of the DS1-14 cards that you are converting. If alarms exist and you have difficulty clearing them, contact your next level of support.

Step 6 Click the Provisioning > Protection tabs.

Step 7 Click the 1:1 protection group that contains the cards that you will move into the new protection group.

Step 8 Click Delete.

Step 9 When the confirmation dialog box appears, click Yes.


Note Deleting the 1:1 protection group does not disrupt service. However, no protection bandwidth exists for the working circuits until you complete the 1:N protection procedure. Therefore, complete this procedure as quickly as possible.


Step 10 If needed, repeat Steps 7 to 9 for other DS-1 1:1 protection groups that you want to include in a 1:N group.

Step 11 Physically remove the DS1-14 card from Slot 3 or Slot 15. This raises an improper removal alarm (IMPROPRMVL).

Step 12 In node view, right-click the slot that held the removed card and select Delete from the shortcut menu. Wait for the card to disappear from node view.

Step 13 Physically insert a DS1N-14 card into the same slot.

Step 14 Verify that the card boots up properly.

Step 15 Click the Inventory tab and verify that the new card appears as a DS1N-14.

Step 16 Click the Provisioning > Protection tabs.

Step 17 Click Create.

Step 18 Type a name for the protection group in the Name field (optional).

Step 19 From the Type drop-down list, choose 1:N (card).

Step 20 From the Protect Card drop-down list, choose the DS1N-14 card. Verify that the correct DS1N-14 card appears in the Protect Card field.

Step 21 In the Available Cards list, highlight the cards that you want in the protection group. Click the arrow (>>) tab to move the cards to the Working Cards list.

Step 22 If necessary, set a new reversion time in the Reversion time drop-down list.


Note 1:N protection groups are always revertive.


Step 23 Click OK. The protection group appears in the Protection Groups list on the Protection subtab.

Step 24 Return to your originating procedure (NTP).

Note This task assumes that DS3-12E cards are installed in Slots 1 to 6 and/or Slots 12 to 17. The DS3-12E cards in Slots 3 or 15, which are the protection slots, will be replaced with DS3N-12E cards. The procedure requires at least one DS3N-12E card and a protection group with DS3-12E cards.



Step 1 In node view, click the Maintenance > Protection tabs.

Step 2 Click the protection group containing Slot 3 or Slot 15 (where you will install the DS3N-12E card).

Step 3 Make sure the slot you are upgrading is not carrying working traffic. In the Selected Group list, the protect slot must say Protect/Standby, and not Protect/Active. If the protect slot status is Protect/Active, switch traffic to the working card:

a. Under Selected Group, click the protect card.

b. Next to Switch Commands, click Switch.

The working slot should change to Working/Active and the protect slot should change to Protect/Standby. If they fail to change, do not continue. Troubleshoot the working card and slot to determine why the card cannot carry working traffic.

Step 4 Repeat Steps 2 and 3 for each protection group that you need to convert.

Step 5 Click the Alarms tab to verify that no standing alarms exist for any of the DS3-12E cards you are converting. If alarms exist and you have difficulty clearing them, contact your next level of support.

Step 6 Click the Provisioning > Protection tab.

Step 7 Click the 1:1 protection group that contains the cards that you will move into the new protection group.

Step 8 Click Delete.

Step 9 When the confirmation dialog box appears, click Yes.


Note Deleting the 1:1 protection groups will not disrupt service. However, no protection bandwidth exists for the working circuits until the 1:N protection procedure is completed. Do not delay when completing this procedure.


Step 10 If you are deleting more than one DS-3 1:1 protection group, repeat Steps 7 through 9 for each group that you want to include in a 1:N group.

Step 11 Physically remove the protect DS3-12E card from Slot 3 or Slot 15. This raises an improper removal alarm (IMPROPRMVL).

Step 12 In node view, right-click the slot that held the removed card and choose Delete from the shortcut menu. Wait for the card to disappear from the node view.

Step 13 Physically insert a DS3N-12E card into the same slot.

Step 14 Verify that the card boots up properly.

Step 15 Click the Inventory tab and verify that the new card appears as a DS3N-12E.

Step 16 Click the Provisioning > Protection tabs.

Step 17 Click Create.

Step 18 Type a name for the protection group in the Name field (optional).

Step 19 Click Type and choose 1:N (card) from the drop-down list.

Step 20 Verify that the DS3N-12E card appears in the Protect Card field.

Step 21 In the Available Cards list, highlight the cards that you want in the protection group. Click the arrow (>>) tab to move the cards to the Working Cards list.

Caution Always use an electrostatic discharge (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 UBIC-V EIAs can only be installed on shelf assembly 15454-SA-HD. 15454-SA-HD shelf assemblies are differentiated from other shelf assemblies by the blue hexagon symbol, which indicates the available high-density slots, found under Slots 1 through 3 and 15 through 17.



Note UBIC-V or UBIC-H EIAs are required when using high-density (48-port DS-3 and 12-port DS3XM) electrical cards.



Step 1 Locate the correct UBIC-V EIA for the side you want to install and remove the UBIC EIA-V from the packaging.

Step 2 Verify that none of the pins on the UBIC EIA are bent.

Step 3 If present, remove the yellow connector protectors.

Step 4 If screws are present in the alignment standoff holes, use a Phillips screwdriver to remove them.

Step 5 Use a flathead screwdriver or 5/16-inch deep socket wrench to tighten the standoffs at 8 to 10 inch pound-force (lb-in) (9.2 to 11.5 centimeter kilogram-force[kgf-cm]). Figure 18-6 shows the alignment standoffs installed on the shelf.

Figure 18-6 Installed Alignment Standoffs

Step 6 Line up the alignment pins on the UBIC EIA with the alignment standoffs on the shelf and push the UBIC EIA with consistent pressure until the pins and standoffs fit together firmly (Figure 18-7).

Figure 18-7 UBIC-V Alignment Pins


Caution Do not force the UBIC-V EIA onto the shelf if you feel strong resistance.

Step 7 Locate the three jack screws on the UBIC-V (Figure 18-8). Starting with any jack screw, tighten the thumb screw a few turns and move to the next one, turning each thumb screw a few turns at a time until all three screws are hand tight (Figure 18-9).


Caution Tightening the jack screws unevenly could cause damage to the UBIC-V connectors.

Step 1 In node view, click the Provisioning > Timing tabs.

Step 2 Observe the Timing Mode field to see the type of timing (Line, External, Mixed) that has been set for that node.

Step 3 Scroll down to the Reference Lists and observe the NE Reference fields to see the timing references provisioned for that node.

Step 4 If the removed node was the only BITS timing source, perform the following:

a. Contact your synchronization coordinator or appropriate personnel before continuing with this procedure.

b. Look for another node on the ring that can be used as a BITS source and set that node's Timing Mode to External. Choose that node as the primary timing source for all other nodes in the ring. See the "DLP-A157 Change the Node Timing Source" task.

c. If no node in the reduced ring can be used as a BITS source, choose one node to be your internal timing source. Set that node's Timing Mode to External, set BITS-1 and BITS-2 BITS In State to OOS, and set the NE Reference to Internal. Then, choose line timing for all other nodes in the ring. This forces the first node to be their primary timing source. (See the "DLP-A157 Change the Node Timing Source" task.)


Note This type of timing conforms to Stratum 3 requirements and is not considered optimal.


Step 5 If the removed node was not the only BITS timing source, provision the adjacent nodes to line timing using SONET links (east and west) as timing sources, traceable to the node with external BITS timing. See the "NTP-A28 Set Up Timing" procedure.

Step 6 Return to your originating procedure (NTP).
