Onsite or remote

Security Level

Superuser only



Note You must back up and restore the database for each node on a circuit path in order to maintain a complete circuit.



Note The following parameters are restored only when the Complete Database (System and Provisioning) checkbox is checked: node name, IP address, subnet mask and gateway, and IIOP port. If you change the node name and then restore a backed up database on this node, the circuits automatically map to the newly renamed node. It is recommended to keep a record of the old and new node names.



Caution If you are restoring the database on multiple nodes, wait approximately one minute after the TCC2/TCC2P card reboot has completed on each node before proceeding to the next node.


Caution TCC2P cards can be used in single IP address (repeater) and dual IP address (secure) mode. The secure mode has advanced features that affect database restore. A database from a secure node cannot be loaded on an unsecure repeater node. A repeater mode database can be loaded onto a secure node but the database will follow the node characteristics (that is, it will become secure). A secure database cannot be loaded onto a TCC2; only TCC2P cards support secure mode. For more information about the dual IP secure mode, see the "NTP-G26 Set Up CTC Network Access" procedure. Also refer to the "Management Network Connectivity" chapter of the Cisco ONS 15454 DWDM Reference Manual.


Step 1 Complete the "DLP-G46 Log into CTC" task at the node where you are restoring the database. 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 Circuits tab. Verify that no optical channel network connection (OCHNC) circuits have a PARTIAL_OOS state. If so, investigate and resolve the partial state before continuing.

Step 3 Complete the "DLP-G157 Disable Automatic Power Control" task.

Step 4 In multishelf view (multishelf mode) or in node view (single-shelf mode), click the Maintenance > Database tabs.

Step 5 Click Restore.

Step 6 Locate the database file stored on the workstation hard drive or on network storage.


Note To clear all existing provisioning, locate and upload the database found on the latest ONS 15454 software CD.


Step 7 Click the database file to highlight it.

Step 8 Click Open. The DB Restore dialog box appears.


Caution Opening a restore file from another node or from an earlier backup might affect traffic on the login node.

Step 9 If you need a complete database restore, check the Complete database (System and Provisioning) checkbox. Continue with Step 11.


Note Complete database restore may be used only on a node that is removed from the network, and does not carry live provisioning traffic. This operation needs to be done by a live operator onsite, and must not use a remote connection.


Step 10 If you need to restore only the provisioning database (partial restore), do not check the Complete database (System and Provisioning) checkbox.

Step 11 Click Ok.

The Restore Database dialog box monitors the file transfer (Figure 13-1).

Figure 13-1 Restoring the Database—In-Process Notification

Step 12 Wait for the file to complete the transfer to the TCC2/TCC2P card.

Step 13 Click OK when the "Lost connection to node, changing to Network View" dialog box appears. Wait for the node to reconnect.

Step 14 Complete the "DLP-G158 Enable Automatic Power Control" task.

Stop. You have completed this procedure.


NTP-G105 Restore the Node to Factory Configuration

Purpose

This procedure reinitializes the ONS 15454 using the CTC reinitialization tool. Reinitialization uploads a new software package to the TCC2/TCC2P cards, clears the node database, and restores the factory default parameters.

Tools/Equipment

ONS 15454 System Software CD, Version 9.0

JRE 5.0 is recommended to log into the node after reinitialization is complete. The reinitialization tool can run on JRE 1.3.1_02, JRE 1.4.2, or JRE 5.0.

Prerequisite Procedures

G103 Back Up the Database

G17 Set Up Computer for CTC

One of the following:

G18 Set Up CTC Computer for Local Craft Connection to the ONS 15454, or

G19 Set Up a CTC Computer for a Corporate LAN Connection to the ONS 15454

Required/As Needed

As needed

Onsite/Remote

Onsite

Security Level

Superuser only



Caution Cisco strongly recommends that you keep different node databases in separate folders. This is because the reinitialization tool chooses the first product-specific software package in the specified directory if you use the Search Path field instead of the Package and Database fields. You might accidentally copy an incorrect database if multiple databases are kept in the specified directory.


Caution Restoring a node to the factory configuration deletes all cross-connects on the node.


Caution Cisco recommends that you save the node database to safe location if you will not be restoring the node using the database provided on the software CD.


Note The following parameters are not backed up and restored when you delete the database and restore the factory settings: node name, IP address, subnet mask and gateway, and IIOP port. If you change the node name and then restore a backed up database with a different node name, the circuits map to the new renamed node. Cisco recommends keeping a record of the old and new node names.



Note A node will remain locked in secure mode even if it is restored with the factory database. A node locked in secure mode can only be unlocked by Cisco Technical Support.



Step 1 If you need to install or replace one or more TCC2/TCC2P cards, see the "DLP-G33 Install the TCC2 or TCC2P Card" task.

Step 2 If you are using Microsoft Windows, complete the "DLP-G248 Use the Reinitialization Tool to Clear the Database and Upload Software (Windows)" task.

Step 3 If you are using UNIX, complete the "DLP-G249 Use the Reinitialization Tool to Clear the Database and Upload Software (UNIX)" task.

Table 13-2 ONS 15454 Timing Report 

Item
Description
Option
Option Description

Clock

Indicates the timing clock. The report section that follows applies to the timing clock indicated.

NE

The node timing clock.

BITS-1 Out

The BITS-1 Out timing clock.

BITS-2 Out

The BITS-2 Out timing clock.

Status

Indicates the status of the timing clock.

INIT_STATE

The timing reference has not been provisioned. For an NE reference, this status appears just before the first provisioning messages when the TCC2/TCC2P card is booting. Timing is provisioned to the internal clock of the node.

HOLDOVER_STATE

The clock was locked onto a valid timing reference for more than 140 seconds when a failure occurred. Holdover state timing is a computation based on timing during the normal state combined with the node's internal clock. The node holds onto this frequency until the valid reference is restored. This status appears for NE references only.

FREERUN_STATE

The node is running off its internal clock without any modification except the calibrated value to bring timing to 0 PPM. Freerun state can occur when a Force switch to the Internal clock is initiated, when all references fail without the 140 seconds of holdover data, or when only Internal timing references are defined. This status appears for NE references only.

NO_SYNC_STATE

A synchronization timing reference is not defined. BITS-1 Out or BITS-2 Out default to this status until an OC-N/STM-N card is defined as its reference on the Provisioning > Timing tab. This status appears for external references only.

NE_SYNCH_STATE

BITS-1 Out and BITS-2 Out use the same timing source as the NE. This is displayed when NE Reference is selected in the BITS-1 Out and BITS-2 Out Reference List on the Provisioning > Timing tab.

NORMAL_STATE

The timing reference is locked onto one of its provisioned references. The reference cannot be Internal or NO SYNC STATE.

FAST_START_STATE

The node has switched references, but the reference is too far away to reach NORMAL_STATE within an acceptable amount of time. FAST_START_STATE is a fast acquisition mode to allow the node to quickly acquire the reference. After it achieves this goal, the node progresses to NORMAL_STATE.

FAST_START_FAILED_STATE

A timing reference is too far away to reach in normal state. The FAST_START_STATE could not acquire sufficient timing information within the allowable amount of time.

Status Changed At

Date and time of the last status change.

Switch Type

Type of switch.

AUTOMATIC

The timing switch was system-generated.

Manual

The timing switch was a user-initiated Manual switch.

Force

The timing switch was user-initiated Force switch.

Reference

Indicates the timing reference.

Three timing references are available on the Provisioning > Timing tab.

Selected

Indicates whether the reference is selected.

Selected references are indicated with an X.

Facility

Indicates the timing facility provisioned for the reference on the Provisioning > Timing tab.

BITS-1

The timing facility is a building integrated timing supply (BITS) clock attached to the node's BITS-1 pins.

BITS-2

The timing facility is a BITS clock attached to the node's BITS-2 pins.

OC-N/STM-N card with port number

If the node is set to line timing, this is the OC-N/STM-N card and port provisioned as the timing reference.

Internal clock

The node is using its internal clock.

State

Indicates the timing reference state.

IS

The timing reference is in service.

OOS

The timing reference is out of service.

Condition

Indicates the timing reference state.

OKAY

The reference is valid to use as a timing reference.

OOB

Security Level

None



Warning Do not reach into a vacant slot or chassis while you install or remove a module or a fan. Exposed circuitry could constitute an energy hazard. Statement 206

Note The air filters are single-use only. They must not be cleaned and reused. This is a Telcordia NEBS requirement, GR-63-CORE Issue 4.



Note Air filters must be inspected every month. If they are dirty or clogged with dust, they must be replaced with a new air filter.



Caution If you install the air filter below 15454E-CC-FTA or 15454-CC-FTA, only filters with part numbers 700-23193-01 and 700-23194-01 can be used in this configuration.


Caution Although the air filter can work with older fan trays if it is installed with either side facing up, it is recommended that you install it with the metal bracing facing up to preserve the surface of the filter. You must install the air filter with the metal bracing facing up with 15454E-CC-FTA or 15454-CC-FTA.


Note To install the air filter inside the air ramp unit (15454E-AIR-RAMP or 15454-AIR-RAMP), use the ETSI version of the air filter (15454-FTF2 or 15454E-FTF4).



Step 1 If the air filter is installed in the external filter brackets, slide the filter out of the brackets while being careful not to dislodge any dust that might have collected on the filter and proceed to Step 8. Figure 13-4 shows the reusable fan-tray air filter in an external filter bracket on an ANSI shelf. Figure 13-5 shows the reusable fan-tray air filter in an external filter bracket on an ETSI shelf.

Step 2 If the filter is installed below the fan tray and not in the external filter brackets, open the front door of the shelf assembly. If the front door is already open, proceed to Step 3.

a. Open the front door lock.

The ONS 15454 comes with a pinned hex key for locking and unlocking the front door. Turn the key counterclockwise to unlock the door and clockwise to lock it.

b. Press the door button to release the latch.

c. Swing the door open.

Step 3 (Optional) Remove the front door using the "DLP-G10 Remove the Front Door" task. If you do not want to remove the door or it is already removed, proceed to Step 4.

Figure 13-4 ANSI Shelf Fan-Tray Air Filter in an External Filter Bracket (Front Door Removed)

Figure 13-5 ETSI Shelf Fan-Tray Air Filter in an External Filter Bracket (Front Door Removed)

Step 4 Push the outer side of the handles on the fan-tray assembly to expose the handles.

Step 5 Pull the handles and slide the fan-tray assembly one half inch (12.7 mm) out of the shelf assembly and wait until the fans stop.

Step 6 When the fans have stopped, pull the fan-tray assembly completely out of the shelf assembly.

Step 7 Gently remove the air filter from the shelf assembly. Be careful not to dislodge any dust that might have collected on the filter.

Step 8 Visually inspect the air filter material for dirt and dust.

Step 9 Replace the air filter with a new one if the air filter is dirty or clogged with dust.


Caution Do not leave the fan tray out of the chassis for an extended period of time because excessive heat can damage the ONS 15454 cards.

Step 10 Replace the air filter:

a. If the air filter is installed in the external filter brackets, slide the dry air filter all the way to the back of the brackets.

b. If the filter is installed below the fan-tray assembly, slide the dry/clean air filter into the recessed compartment at the bottom of the shelf assembly. Put the front edge of the air filter flush against the front edge of the recessed compartment. Push the fan tray back into the shelf assembly.


Caution If the fan tray does not slide all the way to the back of the shelf assembly, pull the fan tray out and readjust the position of the reusable filter until the fan tray fits correctly.


Note On a powered-up ONS 15454, the fans start immediately after the fan-tray assembly is correctly inserted.


Step 11 To verify that the tray is plugged into the backplane, ensure that the LCD on the front of the fan-tray assembly is activated and displays node information.

Step 12 Rotate the retractable handles back into their compartments.

Step 13 If you removed the door, complete the "NTP-G40 Replace the Front Door" procedure. If not, close and lock the door.

Stop. You have completed this procedure.

Caution The 15454-FTA3 fan-tray assembly can only be installed in ONS 15454 R3.1 and later shelf assemblies (15454-SA-ANSI, P/N: 800-19857; 15454-SA-HD, P/N: 800-24848). The fan-tray assembly includes a pin that prevents it from being installed in ONS 15454 shelf assemblies released before ONS 15454 R3.1 (15454-SA-NEBS3E, 15454-SA-NEBS3, and 15454-SA-R1, P/N: 800-07149). Equipment damage can result from attempting to install the 15454-FTA3 in a incompatible shelf assembly.


Caution Do not force a fan-tray assembly into place. Doing so can damage the connectors on the fan tray and/or the connectors on the backplane.


Caution 15454-CC-FTA (ANSI) is compatible with Software R2.2.2 and greater, and shelf assemblies 15454-SA-ANSI and 15454-SA-HD. 15454E-CC-FTA (ETSI) is compatible with Software R4.0 and greater, and shelf assembly 15454-SA-ETSI.


Caution As with the FTA3, the 15454E-CC-FTA and 15454-CC-FTA Fan Fail LED on the front of the fan-tray assembly illuminates when one or more fans fail to indicate that a fan-tray assembly or AIP replacement is required. But the Fan Fail LED on the 15454E-CC-FTA and 15454-CC-FTA will also illuminate when only one power source is connected to the chassis, and or any fuse blows. In such conditions, the Fan Alarm is triggered and the fans run at maximum speed.


Note To replace the fan-tray assembly, it is not necessary to move any of the cable management facilities.



Step 1 Review Table 13-3 (ANSI) or Table 13-4 (ETSI) to ensure that you have compatible components when replacing the fan-tray assembly. Note the alarms that will be generated when an incompatibility occurs.

Purpose

This procedure replaces the AIP on the ONS 15454 ANSI shelf assembly.

Tools/Equipment

#2 Phillips screwdriver

Prerequisite Procedures

None

Required/As Needed

As needed

Onsite/Remote

Onsite or remote

Security Level

Provisioning or higher



Caution Do not use a 2A AIP with a 5A fan-tray assembly; doing so will cause a blown fuse on the AIP.


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.


Caution Do not perform this procedure on a node with live traffic. Hot-swapping the AIP can affect traffic and result in a loss of data. For assistance with AIP replacement, contact the Cisco TAC. See the "Obtaining Documentation, Obtaining Support, and Security Guidelines" section.


Step 1 Review Table 13-3 to ensure that you have compatible components when replacing the ANSI shelf AIP and note the alarms that will occur when an incompatibility occurs.

Step 2 Ensure that all nodes in the affected network are running the same software version before replacing the AIP and repairing circuits:

a. In network view or multishelf view (multishelf mode), click, click the Maintenance > Software tabs. The working software version for each node is listed in the Working Version column.

b. If you need to upgrade the software on a node, refer to the release-specific software upgrade document. No hardware should be changed or circuit repair performed until after the software upgrade is complete. If you do not need to upgrade software or have completed the software upgrade, proceed to Step 3.

Step 3 Record the MAC address of the old AIP:

a. Log into the node where you will replace the AIP. See the "DLP-G46 Log into CTC" task.

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

c. Record the MAC address shown in the General tab (Figure 13-10).

Figure 13-10 Find the MAC Address

Step 4 Call Cisco TAC for assistance in replacing the AIP and maintaining the original MAC address. See the "Obtaining Documentation, Obtaining Support, and Security Guidelines" section.

Step 5 Complete the "DLP-G13 Remove the Lower Backplane Cover" task.

Step 6 Unscrew the two screws that hold the AIP cover in place.

Step 7 Grip the cover and gently pull away from the backplane.


Note On the 15454-SA-HD (P/N: 800-24848), 15454-SA-NEBS3E, 15454-SA-NEBS3, and 15454-SA-R1 (P/N: 800-07149) shelves, the AIP cover is clear plastic. On the 15454-SA-ANSI shelf (P/N: 800-19857), the AIP cover is metal.


Step 8 Grip the AIP and gently pull it away from the backplane.

Step 9 Disconnect the fan-tray assembly power cable from the AIP.

Step 10 Set the old AIP aside for return to Cisco.


Caution The type of shelf that the AIP resides in determines the version of AIP that should replace the failed AIP. The 15454-SA-ANSI shelf (P/N: 800-19857) and 15454-SA-HD (P/N: 800-24848) currently use the 5A AIP, (P/N: 73-7665-01). The 15454-SA-NEBS3E, 15454-SA-NEBS3, and 15454-SA-R1 (P/N: 800-07149) shelves and earlier use the 2A AIP (P/N: 73-5262-01).


Caution Do not put a 2A AIP (P/N: 73-5262-01) into a 15454-SA-ANSI (P/N: 800-19857) or 15454-SA-HD (P/N: 800-24848) shelf; doing so will cause a blown fuse on the AIP.

Step 11 Attach the fan-tray assembly power cable to the new AIP.

Step 12 Place the new AIP on the backplane by plugging the panel into the backplane using the DIN connector.

Step 13 Replace the AIP cover over the AIP and secure the cover with the two screws.

Step 14 Replace the lower backplane cover and secure the cover with the five screws.

Step 15 In node view (single-shelf mode) or multishelf view (multishelf mode), click the Provisioning > Network tabs.


Caution Cisco recommends that TCC2/TCC2P card resets be performed in a maintenance window to avoid any potential service disruptions.

Step 16 Reset the standby TCC2/TCC2P card:

a. Right-click the standby TCC2/TCC2P card and choose Reset Card.

b. Click Yes in the Resetting Card dialog box. As the card resets, a loading (Ldg) indication appears on the card in CTC.

Step 2 In node view (single-shelf mode) or multishelf view (multishelf mode), click the Provisioning > Defaults tabs. Wait for the Defaults selector frame to load the defaults. This could take several minutes.

Step 3 Under Defaults Selector, choose either a card (if editing card-level defaults) or NODE (if editing node-level defaults). Clicking on the node name (at the top of the Defaults Selector column) lists all available NE defaults (both node- and card-level) under Default Name.

Step 4 Locate a default that you want to change under Default Name.

Step 5 Click in the Default Value column for the default property that you are changing and either choose a value from the drop-down list (when available), or type in the desired new value.


Note If you click Reset before you click Apply, all values will return to their original settings.


Step 6 Click Apply (click in the Default Name column to activate the Apply button if it is unavailable). You can modify multiple default values before applying the changes.

A pencil icon will appear next to any default value that will be changed as a result of editing the defaults file.

Step 7 If you are modifying node-level defaults, a dialog box appears telling you that defaults were successfully applied to the node. Click Yes.

If you are modifying the IIOP Listener Port setting, a dialog box appears warning you that the node will reboot and asks if you want to continue. Click Yes.


Note Changes to most node defaults reprovision the node when you click Apply. Changes made to card settings using the Defaults Editor do not change the settings for cards that are already installed or slots that are preprovisioned for cards, but rather, change only cards that are installed or preprovisioned thereafter. To change settings for installed cards or preprovisioned slots, see Chapter 11 "Change DWDM Card Settings." To change settings for transponder or muxponder cards see Chapter 5 "Provision Transponder and Muxponder Cards."



Note Changing some NE defaults can cause CTC disconnection or a reboot of the node in order for the default to take effect. Before you change a default, view the Side Effects column of the Defaults editor (right-click a column header and select Show Column > Side Effects) and be prepared for the occurrence of any side effects listed for that default.
