Change Node Settings

Before You Begin

Change Node Settings

This chapter explains how to modify node provisioning for the Cisco ONS 15454 SDH. To provision a new node, see Chapter3, “Turn Up a Node” To change default network element (NE) settings and to view a list of those settings, refer to the “Network Element Defaults” appendix in the Cisco ONS 15454 SDH Reference Manual.

Before You Begin

Before performing the following procedures, investigate all alarms and clear any trouble conditions. Refer to the Cisco ONS 15454 SDH Troubleshooting Guide as necessary.

This section lists the chapter procedures (NTPs). Turn to a procedure for applicable tasks (DLPs).

2. D201 Change CTC Network Access—As needed, complete these procedures to change the IP address, default router, subnet mask, network configuration settings, and static routes.

3. D327 Modify OSI Provisioning—Complete this procedure as needed to modify Open System Interconnection (OSI) parameters including the OSI routing mode, Target Identifier Address Resolution Protocol (TARP), routers, subnets, and IP-over-CLNS tunnels.

4. D202 Customize the CTC Network View—As needed, complete this procedure to create domains and customize the appearance of the network map, including specifying a different default map, creating domains, selecting your own map or image, and changing the background color.

5. D203 Modify or Delete Card Protection Settings—Complete as needed.

6. D277 Modify or Delete Communications Channel Terminations—Complete as needed to modify or delete regenerator section data communications channel (RS-DCC) and multiplex section data communications channel (MS-DCC) terminations, and to delete provisionable patchcords.

7. D85 Change Node Timing—Complete as needed.

8. D205 Modify Users and Change Security—Complete as needed.
