Locked,disabled—Puts the port in the Locked-enabled,disabled service state. In this service state, traffic is not passed on the port until the service state is changed to Unlocked-enabled; Locked-enabled,maintenance; or Unlocked-disabled,automaticInService.

Locked,maintenance—Puts the port in the Locked-enabled,maintenance service state. This service state does not interrupt traffic flow and loopbacks are allowed, but alarm reporting is suppressed. Raised fault conditions, whether or not their alarms are reported, can be retrieved on the CTC Conditions tab or by using the TL1 RTRV-COND command. Use the Locked-enabled,maintenance service state for testing or to suppress alarms temporarily. A port must be in this service state before you can apply a loopback. Change to the Unlocked-enabled or Unlocked-disabled,automaticInService when testing is complete.

Unlocked,automaticInService—Puts the port in the Unlocked-disabled,automaticInService service state. In this service state, alarm reporting is suppressed, but traffic is carried and loopbacks are allowed. After the soak period passes, the port changes to Unlocked-enabled. Raised fault conditions, whether their alarms are reported or not, can be retrieved on the CTC Conditions tab or by using the TL1 RTRV-COND command.


Note CTC will not allow you to change a port service state from Unlocked-enabled to Locked-enabled,disabled. You must first change a port to the Locked-enabled,maintenance service state before putting it in the Locked-enabled,disabled service state.


For more information about service states, refer to the "Administrative and Service States" appendix of the Cisco ONS 15454 SDH Reference Manual.

Step 4 If the port is in loopback (Locked-enabled,loopback & maintenance) and you set the Admin State to Unlocked-enabled, a confirmation window appears indicating that the loopback will be released and that the action could be service affecting. To continue, click Yes.

Step 5 If you set Admin State to Unlocked,automaticInService, set the soak period time in the AINS Soak field. This is the amount of time that the port will stay in Unlocked-disabled,automaticInService service state after the signal is continuously received before changing to Unlocked-enabled.

Step 6 Click Apply.

Step 7 As needed, repeat this task for each port.

Step 8 Return to your originating procedure (NTP).

Note Provisioning signal degrade-path (SD-P) or signal fail-path (SF-P) thresholds on the Circuit Attributes page of the Circuit Creation wizard sets the values only for SNCP-protected spans. The circuit source and destination use the node default values of 10E-4 for SD-P and 10E-6 for SF-P for unprotected circuits and for the source and drop of SNCP circuits.



Step 1 In the SNCP area of the Circuit Attributes page, set the SNCP path selectors:

Provision working go and return on primary path—Check this box to route the working path on one fiber pair and the protect path on a separate fiber pair. This feature only applies to bidirectional SNCP circuits.

Revertive—Check this box if you want traffic to revert to the working path when the conditions that diverted it to the protect path are repaired. If you do not choose Revertive, traffic remains on the protect path after the switch.

Reversion time—If Revertive is checked, click the Reversion time field and choose a reversion time from the drop-down list. The range is 0.5 to 12.0 minutes. The default is 5.0 minutes. This is the amount of time that will elapse before the traffic reverts to the working path. Traffic can revert when conditions causing the switch are cleared.

SF threshold—For high-order circuits, set the SNCP path-level signal failure (SF) bit error rate (BER) thresholds. Unavailable for low-order circuits.

SD threshold—For high-order circuits, set the SNCP path-level signal degrade (SD) BER thresholds. Unavailable for low-order circuits.

Step 1 In node view, double-click the Ethernet card that you want to provision.

Step 2 Click the Provisioning > Port tabs.

Step 3 For each Ethernet port, provision the following parameters:

Port Name—If you want to label the port, type a port name.

Mode—Choose the appropriate mode for the Ethernet port:

Valid choices for the E100T-G card are Auto, 10 Half, 10 Full, 100 Half, or 100 Full.

Valid choices for the E1000-2-G card are 1000 Full or Auto.


Note Both 1000 Full and Auto modes set the E1000-2-G port to the 1000 Mbps and Full duplex operating mode; however, flow control is disabled when 1000 Full is selected. Choosing Auto mode enables the E1000-2-G card to autonegotiate flow control. Flow control is a mechanism that prevents network congestion by ensuring that transmitting devices do not overwhelm receiving devices with data. The E1000-2-G port handshakes with the connected network device to determine if that device supports flow control.


Enabled—Check this check box to activate the corresponding Ethernet port.

Priority—Choose a queuing priority for the port. Options range from 0 (Low) to 7 (High). Priority queuing (IEEE 802.1Q) reduces the impact of network congestion by mapping Ethernet traffic to different priority levels. Refer to the priority queuing information in the Cisco ONS 15454 and Cisco ONS 15454 SDH Ethernet Cards Software Feature and Configuration Guide. This parameter does not apply to an E-Series card in port-mapped mode.

Stp Enabled—Click this check box to enable Spanning Tree Protocol (STP) on the port. This parameter does not apply to an E-Series card in port-mapped mode. Refer to the spanning tree information in the Cisco ONS 15454 and Cisco ONS 15454 SDH Ethernet Cards Software Feature and Configuration Guide.

Step 4 Click Apply.

Setting
Description

--

A port marked with this symbol does not belong to the VLAN.

Untag

The ONS 15454 SDH tags ingress frames and strips tags from egress frames.

Tagged

The ONS 15454 SDH processes ingress frames according to the VLAN ID; egress frames do not have their tags removed.


If a port is a member of only one VLAN, choose Untag from the Port column in the VLAN's row. Choose -- for all the other VLAN rows in that Port column.


Note The VLAN with Untag selected can connect to the port, but other VLANs cannot access that port.


Choose Tagged at all VLAN rows that need to be trunked. Choose Untag at VLAN rows that do not need to be trunked, for example, the default VLAN.


Note Each Ethernet port must be attached to at least one untagged VLAN. A trunk port connects multiple VLANs to an external device, such as a switch, which also supports trunking. A trunk port must have tagging (IEEE 802.1Q) enabled for all the VLANs that connect to that external device.


Step 4 After each port is in the appropriate VLAN, click Apply. Table 19-3 lists the VLAN settings.


Note If Tagged is chosen, the attached external Ethernet devices must recognize IEEE 802.1Q VLANs.

Note You cannot edit the circuit state if the circuit is routed to nodes with Software Release 3.3. These circuits are automatically in service (Unlocked).


Step 4 From the Tools menu, choose Circuits > Set Circuit State.

Step 5 In the Set Circuit State dialog box, choose the administrative state from the Target Circuit Admin State drop-down list:

Unlocked—Puts the circuit cross-connects in the Unlocked-enabled service state.

Locked,disabled—Puts the circuit cross-connects in the Locked-enabled,disabled service state. Traffic is not passed on the circuit.

Unlocked,automaticInService—Puts the circuit cross-connects in the Unlocked-disabled,automaticInService service state and suppresses alarms and conditions. When the connections receive a valid signal, the service state automatically changes to Unlocked-enabled.

Locked,maintenance—Puts the circuit cross-connects in the Locked-enabled,maintenance service state. The maintenance state does not interrupt traffic flow; it suppresses alarms and conditions and allows loopbacks to be performed on the circuit. Use Locked,maintenance for circuit testing or to suppress circuit alarms temporarily. Change the administrative state to Unlocked; Unlocked,automaticInService; or Locked,disabled when testing is complete.

Locked,outOfGroup—(VCAT circuits only; future use) Puts the member cross-connects in the Locked-enabled,outOfGroup service state. This administrative state is used to place a member circuit out of the group and to stop sending traffic. Locked-enabled,outOfGroup only applies to the cross-connects on an end node where the VCAT resides. The cross-connects on intermediate nodes are in the Locked-enabled,maintenance service state.

For additional information about circuit service states, refer to the "Circuits and Tunnels" chapter in the Cisco ONS 15454 SDH Reference Manual.

Step 6 If you want to apply the state to the circuit source and destination ports, check the Apply to Drop Ports check box.


Note CTC will not allow you to change a drop port service state from Unlocked-enabled to Locked-enabled,disabled. You must first change a port to the Locked-enabled,maintenance service state before putting it in the Locked-enabled,disabled service state.


Step 7 Click Apply.

Step 8 If the Apply to Ports Results dialog box appears, view the results and click OK.

CTC will not change the service state of the circuit source and destination port in certain circumstances. For example, if a port is in loopback (Locked-enabled,loopback & maintenance), CTC will not change the port to Unlocked-enabled. In another example, if the circuit size is smaller than the port, CTC will not change the port service state from Unlocked-enabled to Locked-enabled,disabled. If CTC cannot change the port service state, you must change the port service state manually. For more information, see the "DLP-D214 Change the Service State for a Port" task.

Step 11 Click the Rolls tab (Figure 19-8). For the pending roll, view the Roll Valid Signal status. When one of the following conditions is met, continue with Step 12.

If the Roll Valid Signal status is true, a valid signal was found on the new port. On either the Automatic or the Manual roll, the physical change of the cross-connect to the Roll To path occurs after running the roll command.

If the Roll Valid Signal status is false, a valid signal was not found. Wait until the signal is found before continuing with the next step. If the signal is not found, refer to the Circuits and Timing section of the Cisco ONS 15454 SDH Troubleshooting Guide. To cancel the roll, see the "DLP-D240 Cancel a Roll" task.

The roll is a one-way destination roll and the Roll Valid Signal is false. It is not possible to get a Roll Valid Signal status of true for a one-way destination roll.


Note You cannot cancel an automatic roll after a valid signal is found.


You can force a signal onto the Roll To circuit by using the Force Valid Signal button. If you choose Force Valid Signal, traffic on the circuit that is involved in the roll might drop depending on conditions at the other end of the circuit when the roll is completed. You must force a signal if the circuits do not have a signal or have a bad signal and you want to complete the roll.


Note For a one-way destination roll in manual mode, you do not need to force the valid signal.

Step 8 Click Next.

Step 9 Complete one of the following:

If multiple Roll From paths exist, the Select Roll From dialog box appears. Select the path from which you want to roll traffic and click OK.

If multiple Roll From paths do not exist, continue with Step 10. The circuit status for the Roll To path changes states from DISCOVERED to ROLL_PENDING.

Step 10 In the Pivot/Fixed Point 2 window, click the square that represents the fixed path of the second connection to be rolled.

The path that is not selected is the Roll From path. The Roll From path is deleted after the roll is completed. The path identifier appears in the text box below the graphic image.

Step 11 Click Next.

Step 12 In the Circuit Routing Preferences area, check Route Automatically to allow CTC to find the route (Figure 19-11). If you check Route Automatically, the following options are available:

Using Required Nodes/Spans—If checked, you can specify nodes and spans to include or exclude in the CTC-generated circuit route in Step 15.

Review Route Before Creation—If checked, you can review and edit the circuit route before the circuit is created.

Figure 19-11 Setting Roll Routing Preferences

Step 13 To route the circuit over a protected path, check Fully Protected Path. (If you do not want to route the circuit on a protected path, continue with Step 14.) CTC creates a primary and alternate circuit route (virtual SNCP) based on the following nodal diversity options. Select one of the following choices and follow subsequent window prompts to complete the routing:

Nodal Diversity Required—Ensures that the primary and alternate paths within extended SNCP portions of the complete circuit path are nodally diverse.

Nodal Diversity Desired—Specifies that node diversity should be attempted, but if node diversity is not possible, CTC creates link diverse paths for the extended SNCP portion of the complete circuit path.

Link Diversity Only—Specifies that only link-diverse primary and alternate paths for extended SNCP portions of the complete circuit path are needed. The paths might be node-diverse, but CTC does not check for node diversity.

Step 14 If you checked Route Automatically in Step 12:

If you checked Using Required Nodes/Spans, continue with Step 15.

If you checked only Review Route Before Creation, continue with Step 16.

If you did not check Using Required Nodes/Spans or Review Route Before Creation, continue with Step 17.

Step 15 If you checked Using Required Nodes/Spans in Step 12:

a. In the Roll Route Constraints area, click a node or span on the circuit map.

b. Click Include to include the node or span in the circuit. Click Exclude to exclude the node/span from the circuit. The order in which you select included nodes and spans sets the circuit sequence. Click spans twice to change the circuit direction.

c. Repeat Step b for each node or span that you wish to include or exclude.

d. Review the circuit route. To change the circuit routing order, select a node in the Required Nodes/Lines or Excluded Nodes Links lists, then click the Up or Down buttons to change the circuit routing order. Click Remove to remove a node or span.

Step 16 If you checked Review Route Before Creation in Step 12:

a. In the Roll Route Review and Edit area, review the circuit route. To add or delete a circuit span, select a node on the circuit route. Blue arrows show the circuit route. Green arrows indicate spans that you can add. Click a span arrowhead, then click Include to include the span or Remove to remove the span.

b. If the provisioned circuit does not reflect the routing and configuration you want, click Back to verify and change circuit information.


Caution If the termination card is a DS3i-N-12, E1-N-14, E1-42 or E3-12 card, a roll will occur even if a valid signal is not detected on the Roll To port. The absence of a PDI-P downstream for loss of signal (LOS), loss of frame alignment (LOF), and alarm indication signal (AIS) line defects causes the roll to continue without a valid signal. This is only seen with DUAL roll mode when both ends of the circuit use the card(s) that are listed in this statement.

Step 17 Click Finish.

In the Circuits tab, verify that a new circuit appears. This circuit is the Roll To circuit. It is designated with the Roll From circuit name appended with ROLL**.

Step 18 Click the Rolls tab. Two new rolls now appear. For each pending roll, view the Roll Valid Signal status. When one of the following requirements is met, continue with Step 19.

If the Roll Valid Signal status is true, a valid signal was found on the new port. On either the Automatic or the Manual roll, the physical change of the cross-connect to the Roll To path occurs after running the roll command.

If the Roll Valid Signal status is false, a valid signal was not found. Wait until the signal is found before continuing with the next step. If a valid signal is not found, refer to the Cisco ONS 15454 SDH Troubleshooting Guide. To cancel the roll, see the "DLP-D240 Cancel a Roll" task.

The roll is a one-way destination roll and the Roll Valid signal status is false. It is not possible to get a Roll Valid Signal status of true for a one-way destination roll.


Note If you have completed a roll, you cannot cancel the sibling roll. You must cancel the two rolls together.



Note You cannot cancel an automatic roll after a valid signal is found.


A roll can be forced onto the Roll To Circuit destination without a valid signal by using the Force Valid Signal button. If you choose Force Valid Signal, traffic on the circuit that is involved in the roll will be dropped when the roll is completed.

Step 19 If you selected Manual in Step 5, click both rolls on the Rolls tab and click Complete to lock the change of the route to the ROLLTO into the database. If you selected Auto, continue with Step 20.


Note You cannot complete a roll if you cancelled the sibling roll. You must complete the two rolls together.

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


Step 1 If you are in network view, switch to node view by double-clicking the node you want to turn up on the network map.

Step 2 Click the Provisioning > Network > General tabs.

Step 3 Complete the following information in the fields listed:

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


Note If TCC2P cards are installed, secure mode is available. When secure mode is off (sometimes called repeater mode), the IP address entered in the IP Address field applies to the TCC2P RJ-45 TCP/IP (LAN) port. When secure mode is on, the IP Address field shows the address assigned to the MIC-C/T/P LAN port, and the Superuser can enable or disable display of the MIC-C/T/P IP address. See the "DLP-D84 Enable Node Secure Mode" task as needed. Refer to the "Management Network Connectivity" chapter in the Cisco ONS 15454 SDH Reference Manual for more information about secure mode.


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

LCD IP Display—Choose one of the following:

Allow Configuration—(Default) Displays the node IP on the front panel LCD and allows it to be changed using the ONS 15454 SDH LCD. This option enables the "DLP-D64 Set the IP Address, Default Router, and Network Mask Using the LCD" task.

Display Only—Displays the node IP address on the front panel LCD but does not allow it to be changed.

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

Default Router—If the ONS 15454 SDH 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 SDH cannot directly access. This field is ignored if any of the following are true:

The ONS 15454 SDH is not connected to a LAN.

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

Open Shortest Path First (OSPF) is enabled on both the ONS 15454 SDH and the LAN where the ONS 15454 SDH is connected.

Forward DHCP Request ToSelect this check box to enable DHCP. Also, enter the DHCP server IP address in the Request To field. The box is unchecked by default. If you will enable any of the gateway settings to implement the ONS 15454 SDH proxy server features, leave this field blank.


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


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


Note In secure mode, the Ethernet ports are assigned different MAC addresses, and the MIC-C/T/P LAN information can be hidden or revealed by a Superuser.


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 SDH nodes in the same subnet.

TCC CORBA (IIOP) Listener Port—Sets the ONS 15454 SDH IIOP listener port used to communicate between the ONS 15454 SDH and CTC computers. This field is generally not changed unless the ONS 15454 SDH resides behind a firewall that requires a different port. See the "NTP-D27 Set Up the ONS 15454 SDH for Firewall Access" procedure for more information.

Gateway Settings—Provisions ONS 15454 SDH SOCK proxy server features. Do not select any of these options until you review the SOCKS proxy server scenario in the "Management Network Connectivity" chapter in the Cisco ONS 15454 SDH Reference Manual. In proxy server networks, the ONS 15454 SDH is either an ENE, a GNE, or a SOCKS proxy-only server. Provisioning must be consistent for each network element (NE) type.

Enable proxy server on port—If checked, the ONS 15454 SDH serves as a proxy for connections between CTC clients and ONS 15454 SDH nodes that are connected by DCCs to the proxy ONS 15454 SDH. 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, only to the proxy ONS 15454 SDH. If Enable SOCKS proxy server on port is off, 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 SDH 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 CRAFT or LAN 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/WAN that those nodes might be connected to.

Gateway Network Element (GNE)—Choose this option when the ONS 15454 SDH 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 SDH is connected to a LAN and the LAN is separated from the node by a firewall. The SOCKS Proxy Only is the same as the GNE option, except the SOCKS Proxy Only option does not isolate the DCC network from the LAN.

Step 4 Click Apply.

Step 5 Click Yes in the confirmation dialog box.

Both TCC2/TCC2P cards reboot, one at a time. During this time (approximately 5 minutes), the active and standby TCC2/TCC2P card LEDs go through the cycle shown in Table 19-4. Eventually, a "Lost node connection, switching to network view" message appears.

As needed

Onsite/Remote

Onsite or remote

Security Level

Provisioning or higher



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

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

DCC/GCC OSPF Area ID Table—Enter the number that identifies the ONS 15454 SDH nodes as a unique OSPF area ID entered in dotted decimal format. It can be any number between 000.000.000.000 and 255.255.255.255. The number must be unique to the LAN OSPF area.

RS-DCC Metric—This value is normally not changed. It sets a cost for sending packets across the regenerator section DCC (RS-DCC), which is used by OSPF routers to calculate the shortest path. This value should always be higher than the LAN metric. The default RS-DCC metric is 100.

MS-DCC Metric—Sets a cost for sending packets across the multiplex section DCC (MS-DCC). This value should always be lower than the RS-DCC metric. The default MS-DCC 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 SDH OSPF topology to be advertised to OSPF routers on the LAN. Enable this field on ONS 15454 SDH 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 SDH is connected. (This number is different from the DCC 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:

TypeChoose 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 parameters most commonly used by OSPF routers. The values entered below must match the values provisioned on the OSPF router where the ONS 15454 SDH is connected:

Router Priority—Provision the router priority. This value sets the designated router for a subnet.

Hello Interval (sec)—Provision the hello interval. This value sets the number of seconds between OSPF hello packet advertisements sent by OSPF routers. Ten seconds is the default.

Dead Interval—Provision the dead interval. This value 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)—Provision the transit delay. This value sets the service speed. One second is the default.

Retransmit Interval (sec)—Provision the retransmit interval. This value sets the time that will elapse before a packet is resent. Five seconds is the default.

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

Step 6 In the 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 SDH in the ONS 15454 SDH 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 SDH OSPF area.


a. In the 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 SDH nodes that reside within the OSPF area. For example, if the ONS 15454 SDH 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 SDH 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 SDH 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. In the 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 SDH OSPF area.

Neighbor—Enter the router ID of the Area 0 router.

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

Hello Int (sec)—Enter 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 SDH is connected uses authentication, choose Simple Password. Otherwise, choose No Authentication.

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

Dead Int (sec)—Enter 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 SDH 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. Table 19-4 shows the LED behavior during the TCC2/TCC2P reset.

Step 9 Return to your originating procedure (NTP).
