Alarm Troubleshooting


This chapter gives a description, severity, and troubleshooting procedure for each commonly encountered Cisco DWDM alarm and condition. Tables 2-1 through 2-5 provide lists of DWDM alarms organized by severity. Table 2-6 provides a list of alarms organized alphabetically. Table 2-7 gives definitions of all DWDM alarm logical objects, which are the basis of the alarm profile list in Table 2-8. For a comprehensive list of all conditions and instructions for using TL1 commands, refer to the Cisco SONET TL1 Command Guide .

An alarm's troubleshooting procedure applies to both the Cisco Transport Controller (CTC) and TL1 version of that alarm. If the troubleshooting procedure does not clear the alarm, log into the Technical Support Website at http://www.cisco.com/techsupport for more information or call the Cisco Technical Assistance Center (1 800 553-2447).

Alarms can occur even in those cards that are not explicitly mentioned in the Alarm sections. When an alarm is raised, refer to its clearing procedure.

For more information about alarm profiles, refer to the "Manage Alarms" chapter in the Cisco ONS 15454 DWDM Procedure Guide.


Note Unless otherwise noted, ONS 15454 refers to the ANSI and ETSI versions of the platform.


2.1  Alarm Indexes

The following tables group alarms and conditions by their default severities in the ONS DWDM system. These severities are the same whether they are reported in the CTC Alarms window severity (SEV) column or in TL1.


Note The CTC default alarm profile contains some alarms or conditions that are not currently implemented but are reserved for future use.



Note The CTC default alarm profile in some cases contains two severities for one alarm (for example, MJ/MN). The platform default severity comes first (in this example, MJ), but the alarm can be demoted to the second severity in the presence of a higher-ranking alarm. This is in accordance with Telcordia GR-474.

2.2  Logical Objects

The CTC alarm profile list organizes all alarms and conditions according to the logical objects they are raised against. These logical objects represent physical objects such as cards, logical objects such as circuits, or transport and signal monitoring entities such as the SONET or ITU-T G.709 optical overhead bits. One alarm can appear in multiple entries. It can be raised against multiple objects. For example, the loss of signal (LOS) alarm can be raised against the optical signal (OC-N) or the optical transport layer overhead (OTN) as well as other objects. Therefore, both OCN: LOS and OTN: LOS appear in the list (as well as the other objects).

Alarm profile list objects are defined in Table 2-7.


Note Alarm logical object names can appear as abbreviated versions of standard terms used in the system and the documentation. For example, the "OCN" logical object refers to the OC-N signal. Logical object names or industry-standard terms are used within the entries as appropriate.


2.2.1  Alarm Logical Objects

Table 2-7 lists all logical alarm objects used in this chapter.

Table 2-7 Alarm Logical Object Type Definitions 

Logical Object
Definition
2R

Reshape and retransmit (used for transponder [TXP] cards).

AICI-AEP

Alarm Interface Controller-International/alarm expansion panel. A combination term that refers to this platform's AIC-I card.

AICI-AIE

AOTS

Amplified optical transport section.

BITS

Building integrated timing supply incoming references (BITS-1, BITS-2).

BPLANE

The backplane.

ENVALRM

An environmental alarm port.

EQPT

A card, its physical objects, and its logical objects as they are located in any of the eight noncommon card slots. The EQPT object is used for alarms that refer to the card itself and all other objects on the card including ports, lines, synchronous transport signals (STS), and virtual tributaries (VT).

ESCON

Enterprise System Connection fiber optic technology, referring to the following TXP cards: TXP_MR_2.5G, TXPP_MR_2.5G, MXP_MR_2.5G, MXPP_MR_2.5G.

EXT-SREF

The entire network element.

NE-SREF

The timing status of the NE.

OCH

The optical channel, referring to dense wavelength division multiplexing (DWDM) cards.

OCH-TERM

The optical channel termination node, referring to DWDM cards.

Note The network element reports alarms or conditions on ingress ports of the card. Alarms detected at the internal ports (TERM side) will be ingress mapped to the MON side. The alarm profile entities of OCH-TERM, if available, should be changed to the same severity as the customized severity for a specific OCH-TERM alarm.

OCHNC-CONN

The optical channel network connection, referring to DWDM cards.

OMS

Optical multiplex section.

OSC-RING

Optical service channel ring.

OTS

Optical transport section.

PPM

Pluggable port module (PPM, also called SFP), referring to MXP and TXP cards.

PWR

Power equipment.

SHELF

The shelf assembly.

STSMON

STS alarm detection at the monitor point (upstream from the cross-connect).

Note The network element reports alarms or conditions on ingress ports of the card. Alarms detected at the internal ports (TERM side) will be ingress mapped to the MON side. The alarm profile entities of STSMON, if available, should be changed to the same severity as the customized severity for a specific STS alarm.

STSTRM

STS alarm detection at termination (downstream from the cross-connect).

Note The network element reports alarms or conditions on ingress ports of the card. Alarms detected at the internal ports (TERM side) will be ingress mapped to the MON side. The alarm profile entities of STSTRM, if available, should be changed to the same severity as the customized severity for a specific STS alarm.

TRUNK

The optical or DWDM card carrying the high-speed signal; referring to MXP or TXP cards.

VT-MON

VT1 alarm detection at the monitor point (upstream from the cross-connect).

Note The network element reports alarms or conditions on ingress ports of the card. Alarms detected at the internal ports (TERM side) will be ingress mapped to the MON side. The alarm profile entities of VT-MON, if available, should be changed to the same severity as the customized severity for a specific VT alarm.


2.2.2  Alarm List by Logical Object Type

Table 2-8 lists all Release 8.5 DWDM alarms and logical objects as they are given in the system alarm profile. The list entries are organized by logical object name and then by alarm or condition name. Where appropriate, the alarm entries also contain troubleshooting procedures.


Note In a mixed network containing different types of nodes (for example, ONS 15310-CL, ONS 15454, and ONS 15600), the initially displayed alarm list in the node view (single-shelf mode) or shelf view (multishelf mode) Provisioning > Alarm Profiles tabs > Alarm Profile Editor tab lists all conditions that are applicable to all nodes in the network. However, when you load the default severity profile from a node, only applicable alarms will display severity levels. Nonapplicable alarms can display "use default" or "unset."



Note In some cases this list does not follow alphabetical order, but it does reflect the order shown in CTC.

2.3  Trouble Characterizations

The ONS DWDM system reports trouble by utilizing standard alarm and condition characteristics, standard severities following the rules in Telcordia GR-253-CORE, and graphical user interface (GUI) state indicators.These notifications are described in the following paragraphs.

The ONS System uses standard Telcordia categories to characterize levels of trouble. The system reports trouble notifications as alarms and status or descriptive notifications (if configured to do so) as conditions in the CTC Alarms window. Alarms typically signify a problem that the user needs to remedy, such as a loss of signal. Conditions do not necessarily require troubleshooting.


Note Unless otherwise specified in this chapter, "ONS 15454" refers to both ANSI and ETSI versions of the platform.



Note For a description of CTC-view terminology, refer to the "Cisco Transport Controller Operation" chapter in the Cisco ONS 15454 DWDM Reference Manual.

The ONS DWDM system uses standard alarm entities to identify what is causing trouble. All alarms stem from hardware, software, environment, or operator-originated problems whether or not they affect service. Current alarms for the network, CTC session, node, or card are listed in the Alarms tab. (In addition, cleared alarms are also found in the History tab.)

2.3.2  Condition Characteristics

Conditions include any problem detected on an ONS DWDM shelf. They can include standing or transient notifications. A snapshot of all current raised, standing conditions on the network, node, or card can be retrieved in the CTC Conditions window or using TL1's set of RTRV-COND commands. (In addition, some but not all cleared conditions are also found in the History tab.)

For a comprehensive list of all conditions, refer to the Cisco SONET TL1 Command Guide . For information about transients, see Chapter 3 "Transient Conditions."


Note When an entity is put in the OOS,MT administrative state, the ONS 15454 suppresses all standing alarms on that entity. You can retrieve alarms and events on the Conditions tab. You can change this behavior for the LPBKFACILITY and LPBKTERMINAL alarms. To display these alarms on the Alarms tab, set the NODE.general.ReportLoopbackConditionsOnPortsInOOS-MT to TRUE on the NE Defaults tab.


2.3.3  Severity

The ONS DWDM system uses Telcordia-devised standard severities for alarms and conditions: Critical (CR), Major (MJ), Minor (MN), Not Alarmed (NA) and Not Reported (NR). These are described below:

A Critical (CR) alarm generally indicates severe, Service-Affecting (SA) trouble that needs immediate correction. Loss of traffic on an STS-1, which can hold 28 DS-1 circuits, would be a Critical (CR), Service-Affecting (SA) alarm.

A Major (MJ) alarm is a serious alarm, but the trouble has less impact on the network. For example, loss of traffic on more than five DS-1 circuits is Critical (CR), but loss of traffic on one to four DS-1 circuits is Major (MJ).

Minor (MN) alarms generally are those that do not affect service. For example, the automatic protection switching (APS) byte failure (APSB) alarm indicates that line terminating equipment (LTE) detects a byte failure on the signal that could prevent traffic from properly executing a traffic switch.

Not Alarmed (NA) conditions are information indicators, such as for free-run synchronization state (FRNGSYNC) or a forced-switch to primary (FRCSWTOPRI) timing event. They could or could not require troubleshooting, as indicated in the entries.

Not Reported (NR) conditions occur as a secondary result of another event. For example, the alarm indication signal (AIS), with severity NR, is inserted by a downstream node when an LOS (CR or MJ) alarm occurs upstream. These conditions do not in themselves require troubleshooting, but are to be expected in the presence of primary alarms.

Severities can be customized for an entire network or for single nodes, from the network level down to the port level by changing or downloading customized alarm profiles. These custom severities are subject to the standard severity-demoting rules given in Telcordia GR-474-CORE. Procedures for customizing alarm severities are located in the "Manage Alarms" chapter in the Cisco ONS 15454 DWDM Procedure Guide.

2.3.4  Service Effect

Service-Affecting (SA) alarms—those that interrupt service—could be Critical (CR), Major (MJ), or Minor (MN) severity alarms. Service-Affecting (SA) alarms indicate service is affected. Non-Service-Affecting (NSA) alarms always have a Minor (MN) default severity.

2.3.5  State

The Alarms or History tab State (ST) column indicate the disposition of the alarm or condition as follows:

A raised (R) event is one that is active.

A cleared (C) event is one that is no longer active.

A transient (T) event is one that is automatically raised and cleared in CTC during system changes such as user login, logout, loss of connection to node/shelf view, etc. Transient events do not require user action. These are listed in Chapter 3 "Transient Conditions."

2.4  Safety Summary

This section covers safety considerations designed to ensure safe operation of the ONS DWDM system. Personnel should not perform any procedures in this chapter unless they understand all safety precautions, practices, and warnings for the system equipment. Some troubleshooting procedures require installation or removal of cards; in these instances users should pay close attention to the following caution.


Caution Hazardous voltage or energy could be present on the backplane when the system is operating. Use caution when removing or installing cards.

Some troubleshooting procedures require installation or removal of OC-192 cards; in these instances users should pay close attention to the following warnings.


Warning On the OC-192 card, the laser is on when the card is booted and the safety key is in the on position (labeled 1). The port does not have to be in service for the laser to be on. The laser is off when the safety key is off (labeled 0). Statement 293

Warning Invisible laser radiation could be emitted from the end of the unterminated fiber cable or connector. Do not stare into the beam directly with optical instruments. Viewing the laser output with certain optical instruments (for example, eye loupes, magnifiers, and microscopes) within a distance of 100 mm could pose an eye hazard. Statement 1056

Warning Use of controls, adjustments, or performing procedures other than those specified could result in hazardous radiation exposure. Statement 1057

Warning Class 1 laser product. Statement 1008

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

Warning The power supply circuitry for the equipment can constitute an energy hazard. Before you install or replace the equipment, remove all jewelry (including rings, necklaces, and watches). Metal objects can come into contact with exposed power supply wiring or circuitry inside the DSLAM equipment. This could cause the metal objects to heat up and cause serious burns or weld the metal object to the equipment. Statement 207

2.5  Trouble-Clearing Procedures

This section list alarms alphabetically and includes some conditions commonly encountered when troubleshooting alarms. The severity, description, and troubleshooting procedure accompany each alarm and condition.


Note When you check the status of alarms for cards, ensure that the alarm filter icon in the lower right corner of the GUI is not indented. If it is, click it to turn it off. When you are done checking for alarms, you can click the alarm filter icon again to turn filtering back on. For more information about alarm filtering, refer to the "Manage Alarms" chapter in the Cisco ONS 15454 DWDM Procedure Guide.



Note When checking alarms, ensure that alarm suppression is not enabled on the card or port. For more information about alarm suppression, refer to the "Manage Alarms" chapter in the Cisco ONS 15454 DWDM Procedure Guide.



Note When an entity is put in the OOS,MT administrative state, the ONS 15454 suppresses all standing alarms on that entity. All alarms and events appear on the Conditions tab. You can change this behavior for the LPBKFACILITY and LPBKTERMINAL alarms. To display these alarms on the Alarms tab, set the NODE.general.ReportLoopbackConditionsOnPortsInOOS-MT to TRUE on the NE Defaults tab.


2.5.1  AIS

Default Severity: Not Reported (NR), Non-Service-Affecting (NSA)

Logical Objects: BITS, FUDC, MSUDC

The Alarm Indication Signal (AIS) condition indicates that this node is detecting an alarm indication signal in the incoming signal SONET overhead.

Generally, any AIS is a special SONET signal that communicates to the receiving node when the transmit node does not send a valid signal. AIS is not considered an error. It is raised by the receiving node on each input when it detects the AIS instead of a real signal. In most cases when this condition is raised, an upstream node is raising an alarm to indicate a signal failure; all nodes downstream from it only raise some type of AIS. This condition clears when you resolve the problem on the upstream node.

Clear the AIS Condition


Step 1 Determine whether there are alarms such as LOS on the upstream nodes and equipment or if there are OOS,MT (or Locked,maintenance), or OOS,DSBLD (or Locked,disabled) ports.

Step 2 Clear the upstream alarms using the applicable procedures in this chapter.

Step 3 If the condition does not clear, log into the Technical Support Website at http://www.cisco.com/techsupport for more information or call Cisco TAC (1 800 553-2447).


2.5.2  AIS-L

Default Severity: Not Reported (NR), Non-Service-Affecting (NSA)

logical Objects: OCN, TRUNK

The AIS Line condition indicates that this node is detecting line-level AIS in the incoming signal. This alarm is secondary to another alarm occurring simultaneously in an upstream node.

This condition can also be raised in conjunction with the "TIM-S" alarm if AIS-L is enabled. (For more information about the TIM-S alarm, refer to the "Alarm Troubleshooting" chapter in the Cisco ONS 15454 Troubleshooting Guide.


Note ONS 15454 DS-3 terminal (inward) loopbacks do not transmit an AIS in the direction away from the loopback. Instead of AIS, a continuance of the signal transmitted into the loopback is provided. A DS3/EC1-48 card can be provisioned to transmit AIS for a terminal loopback.


Clear the AIS-L Condition


Step 1 Complete the "Clear the AIS Condition" procedure.

Step 2 If the condition does not clear, log into the Technical Support Website at http://www.cisco.com/techsupport for more information or call Cisco TAC (1 800 553-2447).


2.5.3  AIS-P

Default Severity: Not Reported (NR), Non-Service-Affecting (NSA)

Logical Object: STSMON, STSTRM

The AIS Path condition means that this node is detecting AIS in the incoming path. This alarm is secondary to another alarm occurring simultaneously in an upstream node.

Clear the AIS-P Condition


Step 1 Complete the "Clear the AIS Condition" procedure.

Step 2 If the condition does not clear, log into the Technical Support Website at http://www.cisco.com/techsupport for more information or call Cisco TAC (1 800 553-2447).


2.5.4  ALS

Default Severity: Not Alarmed (NA), Non-Service-Affecting (NSA)

Logical Objects: 2R, AOTS, ESCON, FC, GE, ISC, OCN, TRUNK

The Automatic Laser Shutdown (ALS) condition occurs when an amplifier card (OPT-BST, or OPT-PRE, OPT-AMP-C, or OMP-AMP-17-C) 40-SMR1-C, or 40-SMR2-C card is switched on. The turn-on process lasts approximately nine seconds, and the condition clears after approximately 10 seconds.


Note ALS is an informational condition and does not require troubleshooting.


2.5.5  ALS-DISABLED

Default Severity: Not Alarmed (NA), Non-Service-Affecting (NSA)

Logical Object: EQPT

The Automatic Laser Shutdown (ALS) condition occurs when a DWDM Optical Preamplifier or Optical Booster (OPT-BST) Amplifier card's ALS is changed to Disabled from any other state (such as Enabled) by user command.

Clear the ALS-DISABLED Condition


Step 1 In node view (single-shelf mode) or shelf view (multishelf mode), double-click the OPT-BST, or OPT-PRE, OPT-AMP-C, or OMP-AMP-17-C card to display the card view.

Step 2 Click the Maintenance > ALS tabs.

Step 3 In the ALS Mode column, change the entry from Disabled to your required state.

Step 4 If the condition does not clear, log into the Technical Support Website at http://www.cisco.com/techsupport for more information or call Cisco TAC (1 800 553-2447).


2.5.6  AMPLI-INIT

Default Severity: Not Alarmed (NA), Non-Service-Affecting (NSA)

Logical Object: AOTS

The Amplifier Initialized condition occurs when an amplifier card (OPT-BST or OPT-PRE) is not able to calculate gain. This condition typically accompanies the "APC-DISABLED" alarm on page 2-30.


Note For basic information about amplifier cards, refer to the "Card Reference" chapter of the Cisco ONS 15454 DWDM Reference Manual. For information abut gain, refer to the "Network Reference" chapter in the same manual. For information about changing their settings, refer to the "Change DWDM Card Settings" chapter in the Cisco ONS 15454 DWDM Procedure Guide.


Clear the AMPLI-INIT Condition


Step 1 Complete the "Delete a Circuit" procedure on the most recently created circuit.

Step 2 Recreate this circuit using the procedures in the "Create Channels and Circuits" chapter of the Cisco ONS 15454 DWDM Procedure Guide.

Step 3 If the condition does not clear, log onto http://www.cisco.com/tac for more information or call TAC (1-800-553-2447).


2.5.7  APC-CORR-SKIPPED

Default Severity: Minor (MN), Non-Service-Affecting (NSA)

Logical Objects: AOTS, OCH, OMS, OTS

The Automatic Power Control (APC) Correction Skipped condition occurs when the actual power level of a DWDM channel exceeds the expected setting by 3 dBm or more. APC compares actual power levels with previous power levels every hour or after any channel allocation is performed. If the power difference to be compensated by APC exceeds the range of + 3 dBm or -3 dBm compared with the previous value set, APC is designed not to correct the level and the APC-CORR-SKIPPED condition is raised.

For more information about APC, refer to the "Network Reference" chapter in the Cisco ONS 15454 DWDM Reference Manual, and the "System Restart after a Fiber Cut" section.

The APC Correction Skipped alarm strongly limits network management (for example, a new circuit cannot be turned into IS). The Force APC Correction button helps to restore normal conditions by clearing the APC Correction Skipped alarm. For more information about the Force APC Correction button, refer to the "Managing APC" section in "Network Reference" chapter of the Cisco ONS 15454 DWDM Reference Manual.

2.5.8  APC-DISABLED

Default Severity: Minor (MN), Non-Service-Affecting (NSA)

Logical Objects: NE, SHELF, AOTS, OTS, OMS, OCH, EQPT

The APC Disabled alarm occurs when the information related to the number of DWDM channels is not reliable. The condition can occur when any of the following related alarms also occur: the "EQPT" alarm on page 2-73, the "IMPROPRMVL" alarm on page 2-111, or the "MEA (EQPT)" alarm on page 2-160. If the condition occurs with the creation of the first circuit, delete and recreate the circuit. (Refer to the "Create Channels and Circuits" chapter of the Cisco ONS 15454 DWDM Procedure Guide for information about this.) For more information about APC, refer to the "Network Reference" chapter in the Cisco ONS 15454 DWDM Reference Manual.

APC Disabled alarm is raised under the following conditions:

When APC is manually disabled in a domain to prevent unexpected power regulations during maintenance or troubleshooting.

When an abnormal event impacting optical regulation occurs.

When an EQPT, MEA or IMPROPRMVL alarm is raised by any MSTP unit in a network.

When gain or power degrade occurs or when the Power Fail alarm is raised by the output port of any amplifier in the network.

When a VOA degrade or a VOA Fail alarm is raised by any MSTP unit in a network.

When signalling protocol detects that one of the APC instances in a network is no longer reachable.

When all nodes in a network do not belong to metro core.


Note The MEA and IMPROPRMVL alarms does not disable APC when raised on OSCM, OSC-CSM, or MXP/TXP cards.


Clear the APC-DISABLED Alarm


Step 1 Complete the appropriate procedure to clear the main alarm:

Clear the EQPT Alarm

Clear the IMPROPRMVL Alarm

Clear the MEA (EQPT) Alarm

Step 2 If the condition does not clear, complete the "Delete a Circuit" procedure and then recreate it using procedures in the "Create Channels and Circuits" chapter in the Cisco ONS 15454 DWDM Procedure Guide.

Step 3 If the condition does not clear, log into the Technical Support Website at http://www.cisco.com/techsupport for more information or call Cisco TAC (1 800 553-2447).


2.5.9  APC-END

Default Severity: Not Alarmed (NA), Non-Service-Affecting (NSA)

Logical Object: NE

The APC Terminated on Manual Request condition is raised when APC terminates after it is manually launched from CTC or TL1. APC-END is an informational condition that is raised and cleared spontaneously by the system and is not visible in the CTC Condition window. It is visible only by retrieving it in the Conditions or History tabs. For more information about APC, refer to the "Network Reference" chapter in the Cisco ONS 15454 DWDM Reference Manual.


Note APC-END is an informational condition and does not require troubleshooting.


2.5.10  APC-OUT-OF-RANGE

Default Severity: Minor (MN), Non-Service-Affecting (NSA)

Logical Objects: AOTS, OCH, OMS, OTS

The APC-OUT-OF-RANGE condition is raised on amplifier cards OPT-PRE, OPT-BST-L, OPT-PRE, OPT-AMP-17-C, OPT-AMP-C, OPT-RAMP-C, OPT-AMP-L, and OPT-BST-E); demultiplexer cards (32-DMX, 40-DMX-C, and 32-DMX-L) having a single variable optical attenuator (VOA); and optical add/drop multiplexer cards (AD-1C-xx.x, AD-2C-xx.x, AD-4C-xx.x, AD-1B-xx.x, and AD-4B-xx.x) when the requested gain or attenuation setpoint cannot be set because it exceeds the port parameter range. For example, this condition is raised when APC attempts to set the OPT-BST gain higher than 20 dBm (the card's maximum setpoint) or to set the attenuation on the express VOA lower than 0 dBm (its minimum setpoint).


Note A common cause of an amplifier trying to attain a value higher than the maximum setpoint or an attenuator trying to attain a value lower than the minimum setpoint is the low input power.



Note For general information about DWDM cards, refer to the "Card Reference" chapter of the Cisco ONS 15454 DWDM Reference Manual. For more information about APC, refer to the "Network Reference" chapter in the same manual. For information about changing their settings, refer to the "Change DWDM Card Settings" chapter in the Cisco ONS 15454 DWDM Procedure Guide.


Clear the APC-OUT-OF-RANGE Alarm


Step 1 There are various root causes for the APC-OUT-OF-RANGE condition. To determine the correct root cause, complete the network-level troubleshooting procedures and node level problems located in Node Level (Intranode) Problems of Chapter 1 "General Troubleshooting."

Step 2 If the condition does not clear, log into the Technical Support Website at http://www.cisco.com/techsupport for more information or call Cisco TAC (1 800 553-2447).


2.5.11  APC-WRONG-GAIN

Default Severity: Not Alarmed (NA), Non-Service-Affecting (NSA)

Logical Object: AOTS

The APC-WRONG-GAIN condition is raised on the amplifier card (OMP-AMP-17-C), when the actual gain of the card (17dB) does not match the expected gain calculated by APC. There is a margin of +1 or -1 dB before the condition is raised.


Note The APC-WRONG-GAIN condition indicates a system issue and not the card problem.


Clear the APC-WRONG-GAIN Alarm

The condition can be cleared by recovering the power at the input port:


Step 1 Check the incoming fiber connection and clean them.

Step 2 Check the regulation points (VOA and amplifiers) along the optical path upstream of the OMP-AMP-17-C card.

Step 3 If the condition does not clear, log onto http://www.cisco.com/tac for more information or call TAC (1-800-553-2447).


2.5.12  APSB

Default Severity: Minor (MN), Non-Service-Affecting (NSA)

Logical Object: OCN, STMN

The APS Channel Byte Failure alarm occurs when LTE detects protection switching byte failure or an invalid switching code in the incoming APS signal. Some older SONET not manufactured by Cisco send invalid APS codes if they are configured in a 1+1 protection group with newer SONET nodes, such as the ONS 15454. These invalid codes cause an APSB alarm on an ONS 15454.

Clear the APSB Alarm


Step 1 Use an optical test set to examine the incoming SONET overhead to confirm inconsistent or invalid K bytes. For specific procedures to use the test set equipment, consult the manufacturer. If corrupted K bytes are confirmed and the upstream equipment is functioning properly, the upstream equipment might not interoperate effectively with the ONS 15454.

Step 2 If the alarm does not clear and the overhead shows inconsistent or invalid K bytes, you could need to replace the upstream cards for protection switching to operate properly. Complete the "Physically Replace a Card" procedure.

Step 3 If the alarm does not clear, log into the Technical Support Website at http://www.cisco.com/techsupport for more information or call Cisco TAC (1 800 553-2447).


2.5.13  APSCM

Default Severity: Minor (MN), Non-Service-Affecting (NSA)

Logical Object: OCN, STMN

The APS Channel Mismatch alarm occurs when the ONS 15454 expects a working channel but receives a protect channel. In many cases, the working and protect channels are crossed and the protect channel is active. If the fibers are crossed and the working line is active, the alarm does not occur. The APSCM alarm occurs only on the ONS 15454 when bidirectional protection is used on OC-N cards in a 1+1 protection group configuration. The APSCM alarm does not occur in an optimized 1+1 protection configuration.


Warning On the ONS 15454 OC-192 card, the laser is on when the card is booted and the safety key is in the on position (labeled 1). The port does not have to be in service for the laser to be on. The laser is off when the safety key is off (labeled 0). Statement 293

Warning Invisible laser radiation could be emitted from the end of the unterminated fiber cable or connector. Do not stare into the beam directly with optical instruments. Viewing the laser output with certain optical instruments (for example, eye loupes, magnifiers, and microscopes) within a distance of 100 mm could pose an eye hazard. Statement 1056

Warning Use of controls, adjustments, or performing procedures other than those specified could result in hazardous radiation exposure. Statement 1057

Clear the APSCM Alarm


Caution Always use the supplied electrostatic discharge wristband when working with a powered ONS 15454. Plug the wristband cable into the ESD jack located on the lower-right edge of the shelf assembly.


Step 1 Verify that the working-card channel fibers are physically connected directly to the adjoining node's working-card channel fibers.

Step 2 If the fibers are correctly connected, verify that the protection-card channel fibers are physically connected directly to the adjoining node's protection-card channel fibers.

Step 3 If the alarm does not clear, log into the Technical Support Website at http://www.cisco.com/techsupport for more information or call Cisco TAC (1 800 553-2447) in order to report a Service-Affecting (SA) problem.


2.5.14  APSIMP

Default Severity: Minor (MN), Non-Service-Affecting (NSA)

Logical Object: OCN, STMN

The APS Invalid Code alarm occurs if a 1+1 protection group is not properly configured at both nodes to send or receive the correct APS byte. A node that is either configured for no protection or is configured for path protection or BLSR protection does not send the right K2 APS byte anticipated by a system configured for 1+1 protection. The 1+1 protect port monitors the incoming K2 APS byte and raises this alarm if it does not receive the byte.

The alarm is superseded by an APSCM or APSMM alarm, but not by an AIS condition. It clears when the port receives a valid code for 10 ms.

Clear the APSIMP Alarm


Step 1 Check the configuration of the other node in the 1+1 protection group. If the far end is not configured for 1+1 protection, create the group. For procedures, refer to the "Turn Up Node" chapter in the Cisco ONS 15454 Procedure Guide.

Step 2 If the other end of the group is properly configured or the alarm does not clear after you have provisioned the group correctly, verify that the working ports and protect ports are cabled correctly.

Step 3 Ensure that both protect ports are configured for SONET.

Step 4 If the alarm does not clear, log into the Technical Support Website at http://www.cisco.com/techsupport for more information or call Cisco TAC (1 800 553-2447).


2.5.15  APS-INV-PRIM

Default Severity: Minor (MN), Non-Service Affecting (NSA)

Logical Object: OCN

The Optimized 1+1 APS Primary Facility condition occurs on OC-N cards in an optimized 1+1 protection system if the incoming primary section header does not indicate whether it is primary or secondary.


Note APS-INV-PRIM is an informational condition and does not require troubleshooting. If the APS switch is related to other alarms, troubleshoot these alarms as necessary using the procedures in this chapter.


2.5.16  APSMM

Default Severity: Minor (MN), Non-Service-Affecting (NSA)

SONET Logical Object: STMN

An APS Mode Mismatch failure alarm occurs on OC-N cards when there is a mismatch of the protection switching schemes at the two ends of the span, such as being bidirectional at one end and unidirectional at the other. Each end of a span must be provisioned the same way: bidirectional and bidirectional, or unidirectional and unidirectional. APSMM can also occur if third-party equipment is provisioned as 1:N and the ONS 15454 is provisioned as 1+1.

If one end is provisioned for 1+1 protection switching and the other is provisioned for path protection protection switching, an APSMM alarm occurs in the ONS 15454 that is provisioned for 1+1 protection switching.

Clear the APSMM Alarm


Step 1 For the reporting ONS 15454, display node view and verify the protection scheme provisioning:

a. Click the Provisioning > Protection tabs.

b. Click the 1+1 protection group configured for the OC-N cards.

The chosen protection group is the protection group optically connected (with data communications channel, or DCC, connectivity) to the far end.

c. Click Edit.

d. Record whether the Bidirectional Switching check box is checked.

Step 2 Click OK in the Edit Protection Group dialog box.

Step 3 Log into the far-end node and verify that the OC-N 1+1 protection group is provisioned.

Step 4 Verify that the Bidirectional Switching check box matches the checked or unchecked condition of the box recorded in Step 1. If not, change it to match.

Step 5 Click Apply.

Step 6 If the alarm does not clear, log into the Technical Support Website at http://www.cisco.com/techsupport for more information or call Cisco TAC (1 800 553-2447).


2.5.17  APS-PRIM-FAC

Default Severity: Not Alarmed (NA), Non-Service Affecting (NSA)

Logical Object: OCN

The Optimized 1+1 APS Invalid Primary Section condition occurs on OC-N cards in an optimized 1+1 protection system if there is an APS status switch between the primary and secondary facilities to identify which port is primary.


Note APS-PRIM-FAC is an informational condition and does not require troubleshooting. If the APS switch is related to other alarms, troubleshoot these alarms as necessary using the procedures in this chapter.


Clear the APS-PRIM-FAC Condition


Step 1 This condition clears when the card receives a valid primary section indication (1 or 2).

Step 2 If the alarm does not clear, log into the Technical Support Website at http://www.cisco.com/techsupport for more information or call Cisco TAC (1 800 553-2447).


2.5.18  APS-PRIM-SEC-MISM

Default Severity: Minor (MN), Non-Service Affecting (NSA)

Logical Object: OCN

The Optimized 1+1 APS Primary Section Mismatch condition occurs on OC-N cards in an optimized 1+1 protection system if there is a mismatch between the primary section of the local node facility and the primary section of the remote-node facility.

Clear the APS-PRIM-SEC-MISM Alarm


Step 1 Ensure that the local node and remote-node ports are correctly provisioned the same way. For more information about optimized 1+1 configurations, refer to the "Turn Up Node" chapter in the Cisco ONS 15454 Procedure Guide.

Step 2 If the alarm does not clear, log into the Technical Support Website at http://www.cisco.com/techsupport for more information or call Cisco TAC (1 800 553-2447).


2.5.19  AS-CMD

Default Severity: Not Alarmed (NA), Non-Service-Affecting (NSA)

Logical Objects: 2R, AOTS, BPLANE, EQPT, ESCON, FC, GE, ISC, NE, OCH, OCN/STMN, OMS, OTS, PPM, PWR, SHELF, TRUNK

The Alarms Suppressed by User Command condition applies to the network element (NE object), backplane (BPLANE object), a single MXP or TXP card, or a port on one of these cards. It occurs when alarms are suppressed for that object and its subordinate objects. For example, suppressing alarms on a card also suppresses alarms on its ports.


Note For more information about suppressing alarms, refer to the "Manage Alarms" chapter in the Cisco ONS 15454 DWDM Procedure Guide.



Note This condition is not raised for multiservice transport platform (MSTP) cards such as amplifiers, multiplexers, or demultiplexers.


Clear the AS-CMD Condition


Step 1 For all nodes, in node view (single-shelf mode) or shelf view (multishelf mode), click the Conditions tab.

Step 2 Click Retrieve. If you have already retrieved conditions, look under the Object column and Eqpt Type column and note what entity the condition is reported against, such as a port, slot, or shelf.

If the condition is reported against a slot and card, alarms were either suppressed for the entire card or for one of the ports. Note the slot number and continue with Step 3.

If the condition is reported against the backplane, go to Step 7.

If the condition is reported against the NE object, go to Step 8.

Step 3 Determine whether alarms are suppressed for a port and if so, raise the suppressed alarms:

a. Double-click the card to open the card view.

b. Click the Provisioning > Alarm Profiles > Alarm Behavior tabs and complete one of the following substeps:

If the Suppress Alarms column check box is checked for a port row, deselect it and click Apply.

If the Suppress Alarms column check box is not checked for a port row, from the View menu choose  Go to Previous View.

Step 4 If the AS-CMD condition is reported for a card and not an individual port, in node view (single-shelf mode) or shelf view (multishelf mode), click the Provisioning > Alarm Profiles > Alarm Behavior tabs.

Step 5 Locate the row number for the reported card slot.

Step 6 Click the Suppress Alarms column check box to deselect the option for the card row.

Step 7 If the condition is reported for the backplane, the alarms are suppressed for cards such as the ONS 15454 AIP that are not in the optical or electrical slots. To clear the alarm, complete the following steps:

a. Click the Provisioning > Alarm Profiles > Alarm Behavior tabs.

b. In the backplane row, uncheck the Suppress Alarms column check box.

c. Click Apply.

Step 8 If the condition is reported for the shelf, cards and other equipment are affected. To clear the alarm, complete the following steps:

a. In node view (single-shelf mode) or shelf view (multishelf mode), click the Provisioning > Alarm Profiles > Alarm Behavior tabs if you have not already done so.

b. Click the Suppress Alarms check box located at the bottom of the window to deselect the option.

c. Click Apply.

Step 9 If the condition does not clear, log into the Technical Support Website at http://www.cisco.com/techsupport for more information or call Cisco TAC (1 800 553-2447).


2.5.20  AS-MT

Default Severity: Not Alarmed (NA), Non-Service-Affecting (NSA)

Logical Objects: 2R, AOTS, EQPT, ESCON, FC, GE, ISC, OCH, OCN/STMN, OMS, OTS, PPM, SHELF, TRUNK

The Alarms Suppressed for Maintenance Command condition applies to MXP or TXP cards and occurs when a client or trunk port is placed in the Out-of-Service and Management, Maintenance (OOS-MA,MT) service state for loopback testing operations.

While provisioning traffic between two MXP-MR-10DME, MXP-MR-2.5G, or MXPP-MR-2.5G cards, putting the trunk port (09) of the card OOS-MT (initially IS) results in the AS-MT alarm being reported on both trunk and client port. This is because all the GFP interfaces derive their state from the trunk state if the trunk is not IS-NR. If the Trunk port state is IS-NR, then all the GFP interfaces derive their state from the corresponding client port. When the trunk is moved to AS-MT, which is not IS, the GFP of the client port also moves to the AS-MT state. The FAC of the client does not change state.

Clear the AS-MT Condition


Step 1 Complete the "Clear an MXP, TXP, GE-XP, 10GE-XP, and ADM-10G Card Loopback Circuit" procedure.

Step 2 If the condition does not clear, log into the Technical Support Website at http://www.cisco.com/techsupport for more information or call Cisco TAC (1 800 553-2447).


2.5.21  AU-AIS

Default Severity: Not Reported (NR), Non-Service-Affecting (NSA)

Logical Object: VCMON-HP, VCTRM-HP

An AU AIS condition applies to the administration unit, which consists of the virtual container (VC) capacity and pointer bytes (H1, H2, and H3) in the SDH frame.

Generally, any AIS is a special SDH signal that communicates to the receiving node when the transmit node does not send a valid signal. AIS is not considered an error. It is raised by the receiving node on each input when it detects the AIS instead of a real signal. In most cases when this condition is raised, an upstream node is raising an alarm to indicate a signal failure; all nodes downstream from it only raise some type of AIS. This condition clears when you resolved the problem on the upstream node.

Clear the AU-AIS Condition


Step 1 Complete the "Clear the AIS Condition" procedure.

Step 2 If the condition does not clear, complete the "Clear the APSB Alarm" procedure.

Step 3 If the condition does not clear, log into the Technical Support Website at http://www.cisco.com/techsupport for more information or log into http://www.cisco.com/warp/public/687/Directory/DirTAC.shtml to obtain a directory of toll-free Technical Support numbers for your country.


2.5.22  AU-LOP

Default Severity: Critical (CR), Service-Affecting (SA)

Logical Objects: VCMON-HP, VCTRM-HP

An AU-LOP alarm indicates that the SDH high order path overhead section of the administration unit has detected a loss of path. AU-LOP occurs when there is a mismatch between the expected and provisioned circuit size. For the TXP card, an AU-LOP is raised if a port is configured for an SDH signal but receives a SDH signal instead. (This information is contained in the H1 byte bits 5 and 6.)


Warning Invisible laser radiation could be emitted from the end of the unterminated fiber cable or connector. Do not stare into the beam directly with optical instruments. Viewing the laser output with certain optical instruments (for example, eye loupes, magnifiers, and microscopes) within a distance of 100 mm could pose an eye hazard. Statement 1056

Warning Use of controls, adjustments, or performing procedures other than those specified could result in hazardous radiation exposure. Statement 1057

Note For more information about MXP and TXP cards, refer to the Cisco ONS 15454 SDH Reference Manual.


Clear the AU-LOP Alarm


Step 1 In node view, click the Circuits tab and view the alarmed circuit.

Step 2 Verify that the correct circuit size is listed in the Size column. If the size is different from what is expected, such as a VC4-4c instead of a VC4, this causes the alarm.

Step 3 If you have been monitoring the circuit with optical test equipment, a mismatch between the provisioned circuit size and the size expected by the test set can cause this alarm. Ensure that the test set monitoring is set up for the same size as the circuit provisioning. For specific procedures to use the test set equipment, consult the manufacturer.

Step 4 If you have not been using a test set, or if the test set is correctly set up, the error is in the provisioned CTC circuit size. Complete the "Delete a Circuit" procedure.

Step 5 Recreate the circuit for the correct size. For procedures, refer to the "Create Circuits and Tunnels" chapter in the Cisco ONS 15454 Procedure Guide.

Step 6 If the alarm does not clear, log into the Technical Support Website at http://www.cisco.com/techsupport for more information or log into http://www.cisco.com/warp/public/687/Directory/DirTAC.shtml to obtain a directory of toll-free Technical Support numbers for your country in order to report a Service-Affecting (SA) problem.

2.5.53  CONTBUS-DISABLED

Default Severity: Critical (CR), Service-Affecting (SA)

Logical Object: EQPT

The CONTBUS-DISABLED alarm is a function of the enhanced cell bus verification feature. This alarm occurs when a card is defective upon insertion into the chassis or when a card already present in the chassis becomes defective. (That is, the card fails the enhanced cell bus verification test.) The alarm persists as long as the defective card remains in the chassis. When the card is removed, CONTBUS-DISABLED will remain raised for a one-minute wait time. This wait time is designed as a guard period so that the system can distinguish this outage from a briefer card reset communication outage.

If no card is reinserted into the original slot during the wait time, the alarm clears. After this time, a different, nondefective card (not the original card) should be inserted.

When CONTBUS-DISABLED is raised, no message-oriented communication is allowed to or from this slot to the TCC2/TCC2P (thus avoiding node communication failure).


Caution CONTBUS-DISABLED clears only when the faulty card is removed for one minute. If any card at all is reinserted before the one-minute guard period expires, the alarm does not clear.

CONTBUS-DISABLED overrides the IMPROPRMVL alarm during the one-minute wait period, but afterward IMPROPRMVL can be raised because it is no longer suppressed. IMPROPRMVL is raised after CONTBUS-DISABLED clears if the card is in the node database. If CONTBUS-DISABLED has cleared but IMPROPRMVL is still active, inserting a card will clear the IMPROPRMVL alarm.

Clear the CONTBUS-DISABLED Alarm


Step 1 If the IMPROPRMVL alarm is raised, complete the "Physically Replace a Card" procedure. (For general information about card installation, refer to the "Install Cards and Fiber-Optic Cable" chapter of the Cisco ONS 15454 Procedure Guide.)

Step 2 If the condition does not clear, log into the Technical Support Website at http://www.cisco.com/techsupport for more information or log into http://www.cisco.com/warp/public/687/Directory/DirTAC.shtml to obtain a directory of toll-free Technical Support numbers for your country.


2.5.54  CONTBUS-IO-A

Default Severity: Minor (MN), Non-Service-Affecting (NSA)

Logical Object: EQPT

A TCCA to Shelf A Slot Communication Failure alarm occurs when the active Slot 7 TCC2/TCC2P (TCC A) has lost communication with another card in the shelf. The other card is identified by the Object column in the CTC alarm window.

The CONTBUS-IO-A alarm can appear briefly when the ONS 15454 switches to the protect TCC2/TCC2P. In the case of a TCC2/TCC2P protection switch, the alarm clears after the other cards establish communication with the newly active TCC2/TCC2P. If the alarm persists, the problem lies with the physical path of communication from the TCC2/TCC2P to the reporting card. The physical path of communication includes the TCC2/TCC2P, the other card, and the backplane.

Clear the CONTBUS-IO-A Alarm


Step 1 Ensure that the reporting card is physically present in the shelf. Record the card type. Click the Inventory tab and view the Eqpt Type column to reveal the provisioned type.

If the actual card type and the provisioned card type do not match, see the "MEA (EQPT)" alarm for the reporting card.

Step 2 If the alarm object is any single card slot other than the standby Slot 11 TCC2/TCC2P, perform a CTC reset of the object card. Complete the "Reset a Card in CTC" procedure. For the LED behavior, see the "Typical Traffic Card LED Activity During Reset" section.

Step 3 If the alarm object is the standby Slot 11 TCC2/TCC2P, complete the "Reset a Card in CTC" procedure for it. The procedure is similar.

Wait ten minutes to verify that the card you reset completely reboots and becomes the standby card. (A reset standby card remains standby.)

Step 4 If CONTBUS-IO-A is raised on several cards at once, complete the "Reset an Active TCC2/TCC2P Card and Activate the Standby Card" procedure.

Wait ten minutes to verify that the card you reset completely reboots and becomes the standby card.

Step 5 Verify that the reset is complete and error-free and that no new related alarms appear in CTC. A green ACT/SBY LED indicates an active card. An amber ACT/SBY LED indicates a standby card.

Step 6 If the CTC reset does not clear the alarm, complete the "Remove and Reinsert (Reseat) Any Card" procedure for the reporting card.


Caution Always use the supplied electrostatic discharge wristband when working with a powered ONS 15454. Plug the wristband cable into the ESD jack located on the middle-right outside edge of the shelf assembly.

Step 7 If the reset card has not rebooted successfully, or the alarm has not cleared, log into the Technical Support Website at http://www.cisco.com/techsupport for more information or log into http://www.cisco.com/warp/public/687/Directory/DirTAC.shtml to obtain a directory of toll-free TAC numbers for your country. If the Technical Support technician tells you to reseat the card, complete the "Remove and Reinsert (Reseat) the Standby TCC2/TCC2P Card" procedure. If the Technical Support technician tells you to remove the card and reinstall a new one, follow the "Physically Replace a Card" procedure.

Default Severity: Minor (MN), Non-Service-Affecting (NSA)

Logical Object: EQPT

A TCC B to Shelf Communication Failure alarm occurs when the active Slot 11 TCC2/TCC2P (TCC B) has lost communication with another card in the shelf. The other card is identified by the Object column in the CTC alarm window.

The CONTBUS-IO-B alarm could appear briefly when the ONS 15454 switches to the protect TCC2/TCC2P. In the case of a TCC2/TCC2P protection switch, the alarm clears after the other cards establish communication with the newly active TCC2/TCC2P. If the alarm persists, the problem lies with the physical path of communication from the TCC2/TCC2P to the reporting card. The physical path of communication includes the TCC2/TCC2P, the other card, and the backplane.

Clear the CONTBUS-IO-B Alarm


Step 1 Ensure that the reporting card is physically present in the shelf. Record the card type. Click the Inventory tab and view the Eqpt Type column to reveal the provisioned type.

If the actual card type and the provisioned card type do not match, see the "MEA (EQPT)" alarm for the reporting card.

Step 2 If the alarm object is any single card slot other than the standby Slot 7 TCC2/TCC2P, perform a CTC reset of the object card. Complete the "Reset a Card in CTC" procedure. For the LED behavior, see the "Typical Traffic Card LED Activity During Reset" section.

Step 3 If the alarm object is the standby Slot 7 TCC2/TCC2P, complete the "Reset a Card in CTC" procedure for it. The procedure is similar.

Wait ten minutes to verify that the card you reset completely reboots and becomes the standby card. (A reset standby card remains standby.)

Step 4 If CONTBUS-IO-B is raised on several cards at once, complete the "Reset an Active TCC2/TCC2P Card and Activate the Standby Card" procedure.

Wait ten minutes to verify that the card you reset completely reboots and becomes the standby card.

Step 5 Verify that the reset is complete and error-free and that no new related alarms appear in CTC. A green ACT/SBY LED indicates an active card. An amber ACT/SBY LED indicates a standby card.

Step 6 If the CTC reset does not clear the alarm, complete the "Remove and Reinsert (Reseat) Any Card" procedure for the reporting card.


Caution Always use the supplied electrostatic discharge wristband when working with a powered ONS 15454. Plug the wristband cable into the ESD jack located lower-right edge of the shelf assembly.

Step 7 If the reset card has not rebooted successfully, or the alarm has not cleared, log into the Technical Support Website at http://www.cisco.com/techsupport for more information or log into http://www.cisco.com/warp/public/687/Directory/DirTAC.shtml to obtain a directory of toll-free TAC numbers for your country. If the Technical Support technician tells you to reseat the card, complete the "Remove and Reinsert (Reseat) the Standby TCC2/TCC2P Card" procedure. If the Technical Support technician tells you to remove the card and reinstall a new one, follow the "Physically Replace a Card" procedure.


2.5.56  CTNEQPT-MISMATCH

Default Severity: Not Alarmed (NA), Non-Service-Affecting (NSA)

Logical Object: EQPT

The Connection Equipment Mismatch condition is raised when there is a mismatch between the cross-connect card preprovisioned in the slot and the card actually present in the shelf. For example, an XC-VXL card could be preprovisioned in Slot 10, but another card could be physically installed.


Note Cisco does not support configurations of unmatched cross-connect cards in Slot 8 and Slot 10, although this situation could briefly occur during the upgrade process.



Note The cross-connect card you are replacing should not be the active card. (It can be in SBY state or otherwise not in use.)



Note During an upgrade, this condition occurs and is raised as its default severity, Not Alarmed (NA). However, after the upgrade has occurred, if you wish to change the condition's severity so that it is Not Reported (NR), you can do this by modifying the alarm profile used at the node. For more information about modifying alarm severities, refer to the "Manage Alarms" chapter in the Cisco ONS 15454 Procedure Guide.


Clear the CTNEQPT-MISMATCH Condition


Step 1 Determine what kind of card is preprovisioned in the slot by completing the following steps:

a. In node view, click the Inventory tab.

b. View the slot's row contents in the Eqpt Type and Actual Eqpt Type columns.

The Eqpt Type column contains the equipment that is provisioned in the slot. The Actual Eqpt Type contains the equipment that is physically present in the slot. For example, Slot 8 could be provisioned for an XCVT card, which is shown in the Eqpt Type column, but a different cross-connect card could be physically present in the slot. (This card would be shown in the Actual Eqpt Type column.)

Step 2 Complete the "Physically Replace a Card" procedure for the mismatched card.

Step 3 If the condition does not clear, log into the Technical Support Website at http://www.cisco.com/techsupport for more information or log into http://www.cisco.com/warp/public/687/Directory/DirTAC.shtml to obtain a directory of toll-free Technical Support numbers for your country.

2.5.68  ENCAP-MISMATCH-P

Default Severity: Critical (CR), Service-Affecting (SA)

Logical Object: STSTRM

The Encapsulation C2 Byte Mismatch Path alarm applies to ML-Series Ethernet cards or the CE-1000 card. It occurs when the first three following conditions are met and one of the last two is false:

The received C2 byte is not 0x00 (unequipped).

The received C2 byte is not a PDI value.

The received C2 does not match the expected C2.

The expected C2 byte is not 0x01 (equipped unspecified).

The received C2 byte is not 0x01 (equipped unspecified).

For an ENCAP-MISMATCH-P to be raised, there is a mismatch between the received and expected C2 byte, with either the expected byte or received byte value being 0x01.

For example, an ENCAP-MISMATCH-P alarm is raised if a circuit created between two ML-Series or two CE-1000 cards has generic framing procedure (GFP) framing provisioned on one end and HDLC framing with LEX encapsulation provisioned on the other. The GFP framing card transmits and expects a C2 byte of 0x1B, while the HDLC framing card transmits and expects a C2 byte of 0x01.

A mismatch between the transmit and receive cards on any of the following parameters can cause the alarm:

Mode (HDLC, GFP-F)

Encapsulation (LEX, HDLC, PPP)

CRC size (16 or 32)

Scrambling state (on or off)

This alarm is demoted by a PLM-P condition or a PLM-V condition.


Note By default, an ENCAP-MISMATCH-P alarm causes an ML-Series or CE-1000 card data link to go down. This behavior can be modified using the command line interface (CLI) command in interface configuration mode: no pos trigger defect encap.



Note For more information about the ML-Series or CE-1000 Ethernet cards, refer to the Ethernet Card Software Feature and Configuration Guide for the Cisco ONS 15454, Cisco ONS 15454 SDH, and Cisco ONS 15327.

2.5.69  EOC

Default Severity: Minor (MN), Non-Service-Affecting (NSA)

Logical Objects: OCN/STMN, TRUNK

The SONET DCC Termination Failure alarm occurs when the ONS system loses its DCC. Although this alarm is primarily SONET, it can apply to DWDM. For example, the OSCM card can raise this alarm on its OC-3 section overhead.

The SDCC consists of three bytes, D1 through D3, in the SONET overhead. The bytes convey information about operation, administration, maintenance, and provisioning (OAM&P). The ONS system uses the DCC on the SONET section layer to communicate network management information.


Warning Invisible laser radiation could be emitted from the end of the unterminated fiber cable or connector. Do not stare into the beam directly with optical instruments. Viewing the laser output with certain optical instruments (for example, eye loupes, magnifiers, and microscopes) within a distance of 100 mm could pose an eye hazard. Statement 1056

Warning Use of controls, adjustments, or performing procedures other than those specified could result in hazardous radiation exposure. Statement 1057

Note If a circuit shows a partial state when this alarm is raised, the logical circuit is in place. The circuit is able to carry traffic when the connection issue is resolved. You do not need to delete the circuit when troubleshooting this alarm.



Note For general information about OSCM or other DWDM cards, refer to the "Card Reference" chapter in the Cisco ONS 15454 DWDM Reference Manual. For information about changing their settings, refer to the "Change DWDM Card Settings" chapter in the Cisco ONS 15454 DWDM Procedure Guide. For more information about the SONET (ANSI) or SDH (ETSI) overhead, refer to the "SONET Topologies and Upgrades" chapter of the Cisco ONS 15454 Procedure Guide or the "SDH Topologies and Upgrades" chapter of the Cisco ONS 15454 SDH Procedure Guide.



Note The EOC alarm is raised on the DWDM trunk in MSTP systems. Its SDH (ETSI) counterpart, MS-EOC, is not raised against the trunk port.


Clear the EOC Alarm


Step 1 If the LOS (DS1) alarm or SF-L alarm is reported, complete the appropriate troubleshooting procedure in the "Alarm Troubleshooting" chapter of the Cisco ONS 15454 Troubleshooting Guide.


Caution Always use the supplied electrostatic discharge wristband when working with a powered ONS system. Plug the wristband cable into the ESD jack located on the lower-right edge of the shelf assembly.

Step 2 If the alarm does not clear on the reporting node, verify the physical connections between the cards and that the fiber-optic cables are configured to carry SDCC traffic. For more information about fiber connections and terminations, refer to the "Turn Up a Node" chapter in the Cisco ONS 15454 DWDM Procedure Guide.

Step 3 If the physical connections are correct and configured to carry DCC traffic, ensure that both ends of the fiber span have in-service (IS) ports. Verify that the ACT/SBY LED on each card is green.

Step 4 When the LEDs on the cards are correctly illuminated, complete the "Verify or Create Node Section DCC Terminations" procedure to verify that the DCC is provisioned for the ports at both ends of the fiber span.

Step 5 Repeat Step 4 at the adjacent nodes.

Step 6 If DCC is provisioned for the ends of the span, verify that the port is active and in service by completing the following steps:

a. Confirm that the card shows a green LED in CTC or on the physical card. A green ACT/SBY LED indicates an active card. An amber ACT/SBY LED indicates a standby card.

b. To determine whether the port is in service, in node view (single-shelf mode) or shelf view (multishelf mode), double-click the card in CTC to open the card view.

c. In card view, click the Provisioning > Line tabs.

d. Verify that the Admin State column lists the port as IS (or Unlocked).

e. If the Admin State column lists the port as OOS,MT (or Locked,maintenance) or OOS,DSBLD (or Locked,disabled), click the column and choose IS , or Unlocked. Click Apply.

Step 7 For all nodes, if the card is in service, use an optical test set to determine whether signal failures are present on fiber terminations. For specific procedures to use the test set equipment, consult the manufacturer.


Caution Using an optical test set disrupts service on a card. It could be necessary to manually switch traffic carrying circuits over to a protection path. Refer to the "Protection Switching, Lock Initiation, and Clearing" section for commonly used switching procedures.

Step 8 If no signal failures exist on terminations, measure power levels to verify that the budget loss is within the parameters of the receiver. Refer to the "Hardware Specifications" appendix in the Cisco ONS 15454 DWDM Reference Manual for card power levels.

Step 9 If budget loss is within parameters, ensure that fiber connectors are securely fastened and properly terminated. For more information about cabling, refer to the "Turn Up a Node" chapter in the Cisco ONS 15454 DWDM Procedure Guide.

Step 10 If fiber connectors are properly fastened and terminated, complete the "Reset an Active TCC2/TCC2P Card and Activate the Standby Card" procedure.

Wait ten minutes to verify that the card you reset completely reboots and becomes the standby card.

Resetting the active TCC2/TCC2P switches control to the standby TCC2/TCC2P. If the alarm clears when the ONS system node switches to the standby TCC2/TCC2P, the user can assume that the previously active card is the cause of the alarm.

Step 11 If the TCC2/TCC2P reset does not clear the alarm, delete the problematic SDCC termination:

a. From the View menu in card view, choose Go to Previous View if you have not already done so.

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

c. Highlight the problematic DCC termination.

d. Click Delete.

e. Click Yes in the Confirmation Dialog box.

Step 12 Recreate the SDCC termination. Refer to the "Turn Up a Node" chapter of the Cisco ONS 15454 DWDM Procedure Guide for procedures.

Step 13 Verify that both ends of the DCC have been recreated at the optical ports.

Step 14 If the alarm has not cleared, call Cisco TAC (1 800 553-2447). If the Cisco TAC technician tells you to reseat the card, complete the "Remove and Reinsert (Reseat) the Standby TCC2/TCC2P Card" procedure. If the Cisco TAC technician tells you to remove the card and reinstall a new one, follow the "Physically Replace a Card" procedure.


Warning Warning: High-performance devices on this card can get hot during operation. To remove the card, hold it by the faceplate and bottom edge. Allow the card to cool before touching any other part of it or before placing it in an antistatic bag. Statement 201

The Failure to Switch to Protection Facility condition applies to MXP and TXP trunk ports in splitter protection groups and occurs when a working or protect trunk port switches to its companion port by using a MANUAL command.


Note For more information about protection schemes, refer to the "Manage the Node" chapter of the Cisco ONS 15454 DWDM Procedure Guide.


Clear the FAILTOSW (TRUNK) Condition


Step 1 Look up and troubleshoot the higher-priority alarm. Clearing the higher-priority condition frees the card and clears the FAILTOSW.

Step 2 If the condition does not clear, replace the working card that is reporting the higher-priority alarm by following the "Physically Replace a Card" procedure. This card is the working facility using the protect facility and not reporting FAILTOSW.

Replacing the working card that is reporting the higher-priority alarm allows traffic to revert to the working slot and the card reporting the FAILTOSW to switch to the protect card.

Step 3 If the condition does not clear, log into the Technical Support Website at http://www.cisco.com/techsupport for more information or call Cisco TAC (1 800 553-2447).


2.5.82  FAILTOSW-HO

Default Severity: Not Alarmed (NA), Non-Service-Affecting (NSA)

Logical Object: VCMON-HP

The High-Order Path Failure to Switch to Protection condition occurs when a high-order path circuit fails to switch to the working or protect electrical circuit using the MANUAL command.

Clear the FAILTOSW-HO Condition


Step 1 Complete the "Clear the FAILTOSW (2R, EQPT, ESCON, FC, GE, ISC, OCN/STMN, TRUNK, OTS) Condition" procedure.

Step 2 If the condition does not clear, log into the Cisco Technical Support Website at http://www.cisco.com/techsupport for more information or log into http://www.cisco.com/warp/public/687/Directory/DirTAC.shtml to obtain a directory of toll-free Technical Support numbers for your country.


2.5.83  FAILTOSW-PATH

Default Severity: Not Alarmed (NA), Non-Service-Affecting (NSA)

Logical Object: STSMON, VT-MON

The Fail to Switch to Protection Path condition occurs when the working circuit does not switch to the protection circuit on a path protection configuration. Common causes of the FAILTOSW-PATH alarm include a missing or defective protect port, a lockout set on one of the path protection nodes, or path-level alarms that would cause a path protection switch to fail including the "AIS-P" condition on page 2-28, the "LOP-P" alarm on page 2-132, the "SD-P" condition, page 2-205, the "SF-P" condition on page 2-208, and the "UNEQ-P" alarm on page 2-228.

The "SD-L" condition on page 2-204, or the "SF-L" condition on page 2-207 can also occur on the failed path.

Clear the FAILTOSW-PATH Condition in a Path Protection Configuration


Step 1 Look up and clear the higher-priority alarm. Clearing this alarm frees the standby card and clears the FAILTOSW-PATH condition. If the "AIS-P" condition on page 2-28, the "LOP-P" alarm on page 2-132, the "UNEQ-P" alarm on page 2-228, the "SF-P" condition on page 2-208, the "SD-P" condition, page 2-205, the "SD-L" condition on page 2-204, or the "SF-L" condition on page 2-207 are also occurring on the reporting port, complete the applicable alarm clearing procedure.


Note A higher-priority alarm is an alarm raised on the working electrical card using the 1:N card protection group. The working DS-N card is reporting an alarm but not reporting a FAILTOSW condition.


Step 2 If the condition does not clear, replace the active OC-N card that is reporting the higher-priority alarm. Complete the "Physically Replace a Card" procedure. Replacing the active OC-N card that is reporting the higher-priority alarm allows traffic to revert to the active slot. Reverting frees the standby card, which can then take over traffic from the card reporting the lower-priority alarm and the FAILTOSW-PATH condition.

Step 3 If the condition does not clear, log into the Technical Support Website at http://www.cisco.com/techsupport for more information or call Cisco TAC (1 800 553-2447).

Step 1 View the temperature displayed on the ONS system LCD front panel. For example, the ONS 15454 front panel is illustrated in Figure 2-2.

Figure 2-2 Shelf LCD Panel

Step 2 Verify that the environmental temperature of the room is not abnormally high.

Step 3 If the room temperature is not abnormal, physically ensure that nothing prevents the fan-tray assembly from passing air through the ONS system shelf.

Step 4 If airflow is not blocked, physically ensure that blank faceplates fill the ONS system shelf empty slots. Blank faceplates help airflow.

Step 5 If faceplates fill the empty slots, determine whether the air filter needs replacement. Refer to the "Inspect, Clean, and Replace the Reusable Air Filter" procedure.

Step 6 If the fan does not run or the alarm persists, complete the "Replace the Fan-Tray Assembly" procedure.


Note The fan should run immediately when correctly inserted.


Step 7 If the replacement fan-tray assembly does not operate correctly, log into the Technical Support Website at http://www.cisco.com/techsupport for more information or call Cisco TAC to report a Service-Affecting (SA) problem (1 800 553-2447) if it applies to the NE, or a Non-Service-Affecting (NSA) problem if it applies to equipment.

Step 1 Check the PM of the Trunk-Tx port. Verify that received power is above the optics threshold:

a. In node view (single-shelf mode) or shelf view (multishelf mode), double-click the card to display the card view.

b. For the Trunk-Tx port, double-click the card and click the Performance > Optics PM > Historical PM tabs, choose the port in the Port drop-down list, and click Refresh.

c. Compare the refreshed PM values with the threshold (ensuring that it is above the threshold value) by clicking the Performance > Optics PM > Current Values tabs.

d. Ensure that a proper threshold has been provisioned for the receive value. (Refer to the "Provision Transponder and Muxponder Cards" chapter in the Cisco ONS 15454 DWDM Procedure Guide.) If an incorrect threshold has been set, adjust it to a value within the allowed limits. If instead the alarm condition does not clear, move to next step.

Step 2 Physically verify, by using a standard power meter that the optical output power is overcoming the expected power threshold. If so, the card should be replaced at first opportunity


Note The higher power level is not a major issue for the DWDM card (32MUX-O, 40MUX, 32WSS-O, 40WSS-C, or AD-xC-xx.x) connected to the faulty TXP/MXP, because an internal VOA can automatically decrease the optical power to the expected level.


Step 3 Complete the "Physically Replace a Card" procedure.

Step 4 If the alarm does not clear after the replacement, log into the Technical Support Website at http://www.cisco.com/techsupport for more information or call Cisco TAC (1 800 553-2447) in order to report a Service-Affecting (SA) problem.

Logical Object: VMMON-HP, VCTRM-HP

An HP-DEG condition is similar to the "SD (TRUNK)" condition, page 2-203, but it applies to the HP layer of the SDH overhead. A HP-DEG alarm travels on the B3 byte of the SDH overhead.

For path protection protected circuits, the BER threshold is user-provisionable and has a range for HP-DEG from 1E-9 dBm to 1E-5 dBm. For MS-SPRing 1+1 and unprotected circuits, the BER threshold value is not user-provisionable and the error rate is hard-coded to 1E-6 dBm.

On path protection configurations, an HP-DEG condition causes a switch from the working card to the protect card at the path level. On MS-SPRing, 1+1, and on unprotected circuits, an HP-DEG condition does not cause switching.

The BER increase that causes the condition is sometimes caused by a physical fiber problem such as a poor fiber connection, a bend in the fiber that exceeds the permitted bend radius, or a bad fiber splice.

HP-DEG clears when the BER level falls to one-tenth of the threshold level that triggered the alarm.

Clear the HP-DEG Condition


Step 1 Complete the "Clear the SD (TRUNK) Condition" procedure.

Step 2 If the condition does not clear, log into the Technical Support Website at http://www.cisco.com/techsupport for more information or call Cisco TAC (1 800 553-2447).


2.5.127  HP-ENCAP-MISMATCH

Default Severity: Critical (CR), Service-Affecting (SA)

Logical Object: VCTRM-HP

The High-Order Path Encapsulation C2 Byte Mismatch alarm applies to ML-Series Ethernet cards. It occurs when the first three following conditions are met and one of the last two is false:

The received C2 byte is not 0x00 (unequipped).

The received C2 byte is not a PDI value.

The received C2 does not match the expected C2.

The expected C2 byte is not 0x01 (equipped unspecified).

The received C2 byte is not 0x01 (equipped unspecified).

(This is in contrast to LP-PLM, which must meet all five criteria.) For an HP-ENCAP-MISMATCH to be raised, there is a mismatch between the received and expected C2 byte, with either the expected byte or received byte value being 0x01.

An example situation that would raise an HP-ENCAP-MISMATCH alarm is if a circuit created between two ML-Series cards has GFP framing provisioned on one end and high-level data link control (HDLC) framing with LEX encapsulation provisioned on the other. The GFP framing card transmits and expects a C2 byte of 0x1B, while the HDLC framing card transmits and expects a C2 byte of 0x01.

A mismatch between the transmit and receive cards on any of the following parameters can cause the alarm:

Mode (HDLC, GFP-F)

Encapsulation (LEX, HDLC, PPP)

CRC size (16 or 32)

Scrambling state (on or off)

This alarm is demoted by a path label mismatch (PLM) such as LP-PLM.


Note By default, an HP-ENCAP-MISMATCH alarm causes an ML-Series card data link to go down. This behavior can be modified using the command-line interface (CLI) command no pos trigger defect encap.



Note For more information about the ML-Series Ethernet card, refer to the Ethernet Card Software Feature and Configuration Guide for the Cisco ONS 15454, Cisco ONS 15454 SDH, and Cisco ONS 15327.


Clear the HP-ENCAP-MISMATCH Alarm


Step 1 Ensure that the correct framing mode is in use on the receiving card by completing the following steps:

a. In node view, double-click the ML-Series card to display the card view.

b. Click the Provisioning > Card tabs.

c. In the Mode drop-down list, ensure that the correct mode (GFP-F or HDLC) is selected. If it is not, choose it and click Apply.

Step 2 Ensure that the correct framing mode is in use on the transmit card, and that it is identical to the framing mode used on the receiving card by completing the following steps:

a. In node view, double-click the ML-Series card to display the card view.

b. Click the Provisioning > Card tabs.

c. In the Mode drop-down list, ensure that the same mode (GFP-F or HDLC) is selected. If it is not, choose it and click Apply.

Step 3 If the alarm does not clear, use the ML-Series card CLI to ensure that the remaining settings are correctly configured:

Encapsulation

CRC size

Scrambling state

To open the interface, click the card view IOS tab and click Open IOS Connection. Refer to the Ethernet Card Software Feature and Configuration Guide for the Cisco ONS 15454, Cisco ONS 15454 SDH, and Cisco ONS 15327 entries on all three of these topics to obtain the full configuration command sequences.

2.5.128  HP-EXC

Default Severity: Not Alarmed (NA), Non-Service-Affecting (NSA)

Logical Objects: VCMON-HP, VCTRM-HP

An HP-EXC condition is similar to the "SF (TRUNK)" condition, page 2-206, but it applies to the path layer B3 byte of the SONET overhead. It can trigger a protection switch.

The HP-EXC condition clears when the BER level falls to one-tenth of the threshold level that triggered the condition. A BER increase is sometimes caused by a physical fiber problem, including a poor fiber connection, a bend in the fiber that exceeds the permitted bend radius, or a bad fiber splice.

Clear the HP-EXC Condition


Step 1 Complete the "Clear the SF (TRUNK) Condition" procedure.

Step 2 If the condition does not clear, log into the Technical Support Website at http://www.cisco.com/techsupport for more information or call Cisco TAC (1 800 553-2447).


2.5.129  HP-PLM

2.5.130  HP-RFI

Default Severity: Not Reported (NR), Non-Service-Affecting (NSA)

Logical Object: VCMON-HP

The High-Order Remote Failure Indication (RFI) condition indicates that there is a remote failure indication in the high-order (VC-4 or VC-3) path, and that the failure has persisted beyond the maximum time allotted for transmission system protection. The HP-RFI is sent as the protection switch is initiated. Resolving the fault in the adjoining node clears the HP-RFI condition in the reporting node.

Clear the HP-RFI Condition


Step 1 Log into the node at the far end of the reporting ONS 15454.

Step 2 Determine whether there are any related alarms, especially the LOS(STM1E, STMN).

Step 3 Clear the main alarm. See the appropriate alarm section in this chapter for procedures.

Step 4 If the condition does not clear, log into the Cisco Technical Support Website at http://www.cisco.com/techsupport for more information or log into http://www.cisco.com/warp/public/687/Directory/DirTAC.shtml to obtain a directory of toll-free Technical Support numbers for your country.


2.5.131  HP-TIM

Default Severities: Critical (CR), Service-Affecting (SA) for VCTRM-HP; Minor (MN), Non-Service-Affecting (NSA) for VCMON-HP

Logical Objects: VCMON-HP, VCTRM-HP

The TIM High-Order TIM Failure alarm indicates that the trace identifier J1 byte of the high-order (VC-4 or VC-3) overhead is faulty. HP-TIM occurs when there is a mismatch between the transmitted and received J1 identifier byte in the SONET path overhead. The error can originate at the transmit end or the receive end.

Clear the HP-TIM Alarm


Step 1 Use an optical test set capable of viewing SONET path overhead to determine the validity of the J1 byte. For specific procedures to use the test set equipment, consult the manufacturer. Examine the signal as near to the reporting card as possible.

Examine the signal as close as possible to the output card.

Step 2 If the output card signal is valid, complete the "Clear the SYNCPRI Alarm" procedure.

Step 3 If the alarm does not clear, log into the Technical Support Website at http://www.cisco.com/techsupport for more information or log into http://www.cisco.com/warp/public/687/Directory/DirTAC.shtml to obtain a directory of toll-free Technical Support numbers for your country. If the alarm applies to VCTRM-HP, it is a service-affecting problem.


2.5.132  HP-UNEQ

Default Severity: Critical (CR), Service-Affecting (SA)

Logical Object: VCMON-HP, VCTRM-HP

The signal label mismatch fault (SLMF) Unequipped High-Order Path alarm applies to the C2 path signal label byte in the high-order (VC-4) path overhead. HP-UNEQ occurs when no C2 byte is received in the SONET path overhead.

Clear the HP-UNEQ Alarm


Step 1 From the View menu, choose Go to Network View.

Step 2 Right-click the alarm to display the Select Affected Circuits shortcut menu.

Step 3 Click Select Affected Circuits.

Step 4 When the affected circuits appear, look in the Type column for a virtual circuit (VC).

Step 5 If the Type column does not contain a VC, there are no VCs. Go to Step 7.

Step 6 If the Type column does contain a VC, attempt to delete these row(s) by completing the following steps:


Note The node does not allow you to delete a valid VC.


a. Click the VC row to highlight it. Complete the "Delete a Circuit" procedure.

b. If an error message dialog box appears, the VC is valid and not the cause of the alarm.

c. If any other rows contain VT, repeat Steps a through b.

Step 7 If all ONS nodes in the ring appear in the CTC network view, verify that the circuits are all complete by completing the following steps:

a. Click the Circuits tab.

b. Verify that INCOMPLETE is not listed in the Status column of any circuits.

Step 8 If you find circuits listed as incomplete, verify that these circuits are not working circuits that continue to pass traffic, using an appropriate optical test set and site-specific procedures. For specific procedures to use the test set equipment, consult the manufacturer.

Step 9 If the incomplete circuits are not needed or are not passing traffic, delete the incomplete circuits.

Complete the "Delete a Circuit" procedure.

Step 10 Recreate the circuit with the correct circuit size. Refer to the "Create Circuits and Tunnels" chapter in the Cisco ONS 15454 Procedure Guide for circuit procedures.

Step 11 Log back in and verify that all circuits terminating in the reporting card are active by completing the following steps:

a. Click the Circuits tab.

b. Verify that the Status column lists all circuits as active.

Step 12 If the alarm does not clear, clean the far-end optical fiber according to site practice. If no site practice exists, complete the procedure in the "Maintain the Node" chapter in the Cisco ONS 15454 Procedure Guide.


Warning On the OC192 LR/STM64 LH 1550 card, the laser is on when the card is booted and the safety key is in the on position (labeled 1). The port does not have to be in service for the laser to be on. The laser is off when the safety key is off (labeled 0). Statement 293

Warning Invisible laser radiation could be emitted from the end of the unterminated fiber cable or connector. Do not stare into the beam directly with optical instruments. Viewing the laser output with certain optical instruments (for example, eye loupes, magnifiers, and microscopes) within a distance of 100 mm could pose an eye hazard. Statement 1056

Warning Use of controls, adjustments, or performing procedures other than those specified could result in hazardous radiation exposure. Statement 1057

Step 13 If the alarm does not clear, complete the "Physically Replace a Card" procedure for the optical and/or electrical cards.


Caution Removing a card that currently carries traffic on one or more ports can cause a traffic hit. To avoid this, perform an external switch if a switch has not already occurred. Refer to the "Maintain the Node" chapter in the Cisco ONS 15454 Procedure Guide for information.


Note When you replace a card with the identical type of card, you do not need to make any changes to the database.

2.5.135  IMPROPRMVL

Default Severity: Critical (CR), Service-Affecting (SA)

Logical Objects: EQPT, PPM

The Improper Removal (IMPROPRMVL) alarm occurs under the following conditions:

A card is removed when the card was rebooting. It is recommended that after the card completely reboots, delete the card in CTC and only then remove the card physically. When you delete the card, CTC loses connection with the node view (single-shelf mode) or shelf view (multishelf mode), and goes to network view.

When a card is deleted from CTC before physically removing the card from its slot. It is recommended that the card be physically removed from its slot before deleting it from CTC.


Note CTC provides the user approximately 15 seconds to physically remove the card before it begins rebooting the card.
It can take up to 30 minutes for software to be updated on a standby TCC2/TCC2P card.


A card is inserted into a slot but is not fully plugged into the backplane.

A PPM (SFP) is provisioned but the physical module is not inserted into the port.

Removal of an SFP from the client ports of a Y-cable protection group card causes an IMPROPRMVL (PPM) alarm.

The working port raises the CR,IMPROPRMVL,SA alarm and the protected port raises the MN,IMPROPRMVL,NSA alarm. The severity on the client ports is changed according to the protection switch state.

For more information about protection schemes, refer to the "Manage the Node" chapter of the Cisco ONS 15454 DWDM Procedure Guide.

For more information about provisioning PPMs (SFPs), refer to the "Turn Up a Node" chapter of the Cisco ONS 15454 DWDM Procedure Guide. For specific PPM (SFP) values, refer to the "Hardware Specifications" appendix of the Cisco ONS 15454 DWDM Reference Manual.

Step 2 If the alarm does not clear, log into the Technical Support Website at http://www.cisco.com/techsupport for more information or call TAC (1-800-553-2447).


2.5.140  INTRUSION-PSWD

Default Severity: Not Alarmed (NA), Non-Service-Affecting (NSA)

Logical Object: NE

The Security Intrusion Incorrect Password condition occurs after a user attempts a provisionable (by Superuser) number of unsuccessful logins, a login with an expired password, or an invalid password. The alarmed user is locked out of the system, and INTRUSION-PSWD condition is raised. This condition is only shown in Superuser login sessions, not in login sessions for lower-level users. The INTRUSION-PSWD condition is automatically cleared when a provisionable lockout timeout expires, or it can be manually cleared in CTC by the Superuser if the lockout is permanent.

Clear the INTRUSION-PSWD Condition


Step 1 Log in as a user ID with superuser rights. (For more information about this, refer to the "Connect the PC and Log Into the GUI" chapter in the Cisco ONS 15454 DWDM Procedure Guide.)

Step 2 In node view (single-shelf mode) or multishelf view (multishelf mode), click the Provisioning > Security > Users tabs.

Step 3 Click Clear Security Intrusion Alarm.

Step 4 If the condition does not clear, log into the Technical Support Website at http://www.cisco.com/techsupport for more information or call Cisco TAC (1 800 553-2447).


2.5.141  INVMACADR

Default Severity: Major (MJ), Non-Service Affecting (NSA)

Logical Object: AIP

The Equipment Failure Invalid MAC Address alarm occurs when the ONS system MAC address is invalid. Each ONS system has a unique, permanently assigned MAC address. The address resides on an AIP EEPROM. The TCC2/TCC2P reads the address value from the AIP chip during boot-up and keeps this value in its synchronous dynamic RAM (SDRAM).

Under normal circumstances, the read-only MAC address can be viewed in the node view (single-shelf mode) or multishelf view (multishelf mode) Provisioning > Network tab in CTC.

The ONS system uses both IP and MAC addresses for circuit routing. When an INVMACADR alarm exists on a node, you see a PARTIAL circuit in the CTC circuit status column. The circuit works and is able to carry traffic, but CTC cannot logically display the circuit end-to-end information.

An invalid MAC address can be caused when:

There is a read error from the AIP during boot-up; in this case, the reading TCC2/TCC2P uses the default MAC address (00-10-cf-ff-ff-ff).

There is a read error occurring on one of the redundant TCC2/TCC2Ps that read the address from the AIP; these cards read the address independently and could therefore each read different address values.

An AIP component failure causes a read error.

The ribbon cable connecting the AIP card to the backplane is bad.

Clear the INVMACADR Alarm


Step 1 Check for any outstanding alarms that were raised against the active and standby TCC2/TCC2P and resolve them.

Step 2 If the alarm does not clear, determine whether the LCD display on the fan tray (Figure 2-2) is blank or if the text is garbled. If so, proceed to Step 8. If not, continue with Step 3.

Step 3 At the earliest maintenance window, reset the standby TCC2/TCC2P:


Note The reset requires approximately five minutes. Do not perform any other step until the reset is complete.


a. Log into a node on the network. If you are already logged in, continue with Step b.

b. Identify the active TCC2/TCC2P.

A green ACT/SBY LED indicates an active card. An amber ACT/SBY LED indicates a standby card.

c. In node view (single-shelf mode) or shelf view (multishelf mode), right-click the standby TCC2/TCC2P in CTC.

d. Choose Reset Card from the shortcut menu.

e. Click Yes in the Are You Sure dialog box.

The card resets, the FAIL LED blinks on the physical card, and connection to the node is lost. CTC switches to network view.

f. Verify that the reset is complete and error-free, and that no new related alarms appear in CTC. A green ACT/SBY LED indicates an active card. An amber ACT/SBY LED indicates a standby card.

g. Double-click the node and ensure that the reset TCC2/TCC2P is still in standby mode and that the other TCC2/TCC2P is active.

A green ACT/SBY LED indicates an active card. An amber ACT/SBY LED indicates a standby card.

h. Ensure that no new alarms associated with this reset appear in the CTC Alarms window.

If the standby TCC2/TCC2P fails to boot into standby mode and reloads continuously, the AIP is probably defective. In this case, the standby TCC2/TCC2P is unsuccessfully attempting to read the EEPROM located on the AIP. The TCC2/TCC2P reloads until it reads the EEPROM. Proceed to Step 8.

Step 4 If the standby TCC2/TCC2P rebooted successfully into standby mode, complete the "Remove and Reinsert (Reseat) the Standby TCC2/TCC2P Card" procedure.

Resetting the active TCC2/TCC2P causes the standby TCC2/TCC2P to become active. The standby TCC2/TCC2P keeps a copy of the chassis MAC address. If its stored MAC address is valid, the alarm should clear.

Step 5 After the reset, note whether or not the INVMACADR alarm has cleared or is still present.

Step 6 Complete the "Reset an Active TCC2/TCC2P Card and Activate the Standby Card" procedure again to place the standby TCC2/TCC2P back into active mode.

After the reset, note whether or not the INVMACADR alarm has cleared or is still present. If the INVMACADR alarm remains standing through both TCC2/TCC2P resets, this indicates that the AIP is probably defective. Proceed to Step 8.

If the INVMACADR was raised during one TCC2/TCC2P reset and cleared during the other, the TCC2/TCC2P that was active while the alarm was raised needs to be replaced. Continue with Step 7.

Step 7 If the faulty TCC2/TCC2P is currently in standby mode, complete the "Physically Replace a Card" procedure for this card. If the faulty TCC2/TCC2P is currently active, during the next available maintenance window complete the "Reset an Active TCC2/TCC2P Card and Activate the Standby Card" procedure and then complete the "Physically Replace a Card" procedure.


Note If the replacement TCC2/TCC2P is loaded with a different software version from the current TCC2/TCC2P, the card boot-up could take up to 30 minutes. During this time, the card LEDs flicker between Fail and Act/Sby as the active TCC2/TCC2P version software is copied to the new standby card.


Step 8 Open a case with Cisco TAC (1 800 553-2447) for assistance with determining the node's previous MAC address.

Step 9 Replace the ribbon cable between the system board and the AIP with a known-good cable.

Step 10 If the alarm persists, complete the "Replace an Alarm Interface Panel" procedure located in the "Alarm Troubleshooting" chapter of the Cisco ONS 15454 Troubleshooting Guide.

Step 11 If the alarm does not clear, log into the Technical Support Website at http://www.cisco.com/techsupport for more information or call Cisco TAC (1 800 553-2447).


2.5.142  ISIS-ADJ-FAIL

Default Severity: Minor (MN), Non-Service-Affecting (NSA)

Logical Object: OCN

The Open System Interconnection (OSI) Intermediate System to Intermediate-System (IS-IS) Adjacency Failure alarm is raised by an intermediate system (node routing IS Level 1 or Level 1 and 2) when no IS or end system (ES) adjacency is established on a point-to-point subnet. The Intermediate-System Adjacency Failure alarm is not supported by ES. It is also not raised by IS for disabled routers.

The alarm is typically caused by a misconfigured router manual area adjacency (MAA) address. For more information about IS-IS OSI routing and MAA configuration, refer to the "Management Network Connectivity" chapter in the Cisco ONS 15454 SDH Reference Manual. For more information about configuring OSI, refer to the "Turn Up Node" chapter in the Cisco ONS 15454 Procedure Guide for procedures.

Clear the ISIS-ADJ-FAIL Alarm


Step 1 Ensure that both ends of the communication channel are using the correct Layer 2 protocol and settings (LAPD or PPP). To do this, complete the following steps:

a. At the local node, in node view, click the Provisioning > Comm Channels >MSDCC tabs.

b. Click the row of the circuit. Click Edit.

c. In the Edit MSDCC termination dialog box, view and record the following selections: Layer 2 protocol (LAPD or PPP); Mode radio button selection (AITS or UITS); Role radio button selection (Network or User); MTU value; T200 value, and T203 selections.

d. Click Cancel.

e. Log in to the remote node and follow the same steps, also recording the same information for this node.

Step 2 If both nodes do not use the same Layer 2 settings, you will have to delete the incorrect termination and recreate it. To delete it, click the termination and click Delete. To recreate it, refer to the "Turn Up Node" chapter in the Cisco ONS 15454 Procedure Guide for the procedure.

Step 3 If the nodes use PPP Layer 2, complete the "Clear the RS-EOC Alarm" procedure. If the alarm does not clear, go to Step 7.

Step 4 If both nodes use the LAPD Layer 2 protocol but have different Mode settings, change the incorrect node's entry by clicking the correct setting radio button in the Edit MSDCC termination dialog box and clicking OK.

Step 5 If the Layer 2 protocol and Mode settings are correct, ensure that one node is using the Network role and the other has the User role. If not (that is, if both have the same mode settings), correct the incorrect one by clicking the correct radio button in the Edit MSDCC termination dialog box and clicking OK.

Step 6 If the Layer 2, Mode, and Role settings are correct, compare the MTU settings for each node. If one is incorrect, choose the correct value in the Edit MSDCC dialog box and click OK.

Step 7 If all of the preceding settings are correct, ensure that OSI routers are enabled for the communications channels at both ends by completing the following steps:

a. Click Provisioning > OSI > Routers > Setup.

b. View the router entry under the Status column. If the status is Enabled, check the other end.

c. If the Status is Disabled, click the router entry and click Edit.

d. Check the Enabled check box and click OK.

Step 8 If the routers on both ends are enabled and the alarm still has not cleared, ensure that both ends of the communications channel have a common MAA by completing the following steps:

a. Click the Provisioning > OSI > Routers > Setup tabs.

b. Record the primary MAA and secondary MAAs, if configured.


Tip You can record long strings of information such as the MAA address by using the CTC export and print functions. Export it by choosing File > Export > html. Print it by choosing File > Print.


c. Log into the other node and record the primary MAA and secondary MAAs, if configured.

d. Compare this information. There should be at least one common primary or secondary MAA in order to establish an adjacency.

e. If there is no common MAA, one must be added to establish an adjacency. Refer to the "Turn Up Node" chapter of the Cisco ONS 15454 Procedure Guide for procedures to do this.

Step 9 If the condition does not clear, log into the Cisco Technical Support Website at http://www.cisco.com/techsupport for more information or log into http://www.cisco.com/warp/public/687/Directory/DirTAC.shtml to obtain a directory of toll-free Technical Support numbers for your country.


2.5.143  LASER-APR

Default Severity: Not Alarmed (NA), Non-Service-Affecting (NSA)

Logical Object: AOTS

The Laser Automatic Power Reduction (APR) alarm condition is raised by OSC-CSM, OSCM, OPT-BST, OPT-PRE, OPT-AMP-C, and OPT-AMP-17-C cards when the laser is working in power reduction mode. The condition clears as soon as safety conditions are released and the power value reaches the normal setpoint.


Warning Invisible laser radiation may be emitted from disconnected fibers or connectors. Do not stare into beams or view directly with optical instruments. Statement 1051.

Note Only inactivate the APR function temporarily for installation or maintenance reasons. Activate APR immediately after maintenance or installation.

2.5.144  LASER-OFF-WVL-DRIFT

Default Severity: Major (MJ), Service-Affecting (SA)

Logical Objects: OCN, TRUNK, CLIENT

The Laser shutdown due to wavelength drift condition is raised when the transmit wavelength of the ONS-XC-10G-C XFP drifts beyond the threshold limit. This causes the TX laser to shut down to avoid transmitting a wavelength that is not provisioned in the network.

Clear the LASER-OFF-WVL-DRIFT Condition


Step 1 Provision a different wavelength or replace the affected ONS-XC-10G-C XFP. Refer to the "GBIC, SFP and XFP Installation and Removal" section in the Installing GBIC, SFP and XFP Optics Modules in Cisco ONS Platforms to replace the affected XFP.

2.5.147  LASEREOL

Default Severity: Minor (MN), Non-Service-Affecting (NSA)

Logical Object: OCN

The Laser Approaching End of Life alarm applies to TXP_MR_10G, TXP_MR_2.5G, TXPP_MR_2.5G, TXP_MR_10E, and MXP_2.5G_10G cards. It is typically accompanied by the "HI-LASERBIAS" alarm on page 2-99. It is an indicator that the laser in the card must be replaced. How soon the replacement must happen depends upon the HI-LASERBIAS alarm's threshold. If the threshold is set under 100 percent, the laser replacement can usually be done during a maintenance window. But if the HI-LASERBIAS threshold is set at 100 percent and is accompanied by data errors, LASEREOL indicates the card must be replaced sooner.


Note For more information about MXP or TXP cards, refer to the Cisco ONS 15454 DWDM Reference Manual.

Step 1 Complete the "Physically Replace a Card" procedure.

Step 2 If the alarm does not clear, log into the Technical Support Website at http://www.cisco.com/techsupport for more information or call Cisco TAC (1 800 553-2447).


2.5.148  LASERTEMP-DEG

Default Severity: Minor (MN), Non-Service-Affecting (NSA)

Logical Object: AOTS

The Laser Temperature Degrade alarm occurs when the Peltier control circuit fails on an amplifier card (OPT-BST, OPT-PRE, OPT-AMP-C, and OPT-AMP-17-C). The Peltier control provides cooling for the amplifier. The card should be replaced at the next opportunity.


Note For general information about DWDM cards, refer to the "Card Reference" chapter in the Cisco ONS 15454 DWDM Reference Manual. For information about changing their settings, refer to the "Change DWDM Card Settings" chapter in the Cisco ONS 15454 DWDM Procedure Guide.

2.5.149  LMP-FAIL

Default Severity:Minor (MN), Non-Service-Affecting (NSA)

Logical Object: GE

The Link Management Protocol Fail alarm is raised by the TCC2/TCC2P card when an LMP control channel fails or when there is a traffic engineering (TE) link correlation error. When the alarm is raised against a control channel, it uses a control channel (CTRLx) AID. When the alarm is raised against a TE link, a TE link AID (TLINKx) is used.

The alarm clears when the control channel or TE link is restored.


Note LMP-FAIL occurs independently of the condition hierarchy between LMP-SD, LMP-SF, or LMP-UNALLOC.



Note When the LMP-FAIL alarm is reported against a control channel (CTRLx) AID, it only refers to control channel failure. It does not directly indicate data link or traffic engineering link status.



Note When the LMP-FAIL alarm is reported against a TE link AID (TLINKx), it refers only to TE link status, not to control channel or data link status.


Clear the LMP-FAIL Alarm


Step 1 Verify the AID (CTRLx or TLINKx) of the alarm.

Step 2 If the alarm is against the control channel AID, this is caused by mismatched control channel parameters between the near-end ONS 15454 and the far-end node (which may be another vendor's equipment). Complete the following steps:

a. Determine whether both near-end and far-end sides of the control channel are in the IS administrative state:

Click the Provisioning > Comm Channels > LMP > Control Channels tabs and view the Admin State column content for the channel.

If the status does not say IS, change it and click Apply.

b. Determine whether the near-end node LMP configuration contains the far-end node's IP address as its remote node IP. Also verify that the near-end node's LMP configuration uses the LMP node ID as its own remote node ID. If one or more of these values is incorrect, enter it correctly.

c. Determine whether the far-end node LMP configuration contains the near-end node's IP address as its remote node IP. Also verify that the far-end node's LMP configuration uses the LMP node ID as its own remote node ID. If one or more of these values is incorrect, enter it correctly.

d. Verify that the far-end node is using the near-end node's IP address as its remote node IP address, and that the far end is also using the LMP node ID as its remote node ID. Update the far end's values if they are incorrect.

Step 3 If instead the alarm is raised against the TE link AID, complete the following steps:

a. Determine whether both near-end and far-end sides of the TE link are in the IS administrative state. If either end is currently down, update its administrative state to IS:

Click the Provisioning > Comm Channels > LMP > TE links tab.

If the status does not say IS, change it and click Apply.

b. Determine whether the near-end node's remote TE link ID matches the far-end node's local TE link ID. If the near-end node's remote value is incorrect, enter it correctly.

c. Determine whether the far-end node's remote TE link ID corresponds to the near-end node's local TE link ID. If the far-end node's remote value is incorrect, enter it correctly.

Step 4 If the alarm does not clear, log into the Technical Support Website at http://www.cisco.com/techsupport for more information or call Cisco TAC (1 800 553-2447).


2.5.150  LMP-SD

Default Severity:Not Alarmed (NA), Non-Service-Affecting (NSA)

Logical Object: GE

The LMP Data Link Signal Degrade condition occurs for when the TCC2/TCC2P receives an LMP link summary or channel status message that the control channel is not available from the far end, so the data link level of service is not guaranteed. The degrade range is provisionable.

LMP-SD clears when the TCC2/TCC2P receives a link summary or channel status message reporting that the data link is in the Signal Okay (OK) state.

LMP-SD is part of an alarm hierarchy that includes LMP-SF, and LMP-UNALLOC. The hierarchy is as follows: If LMP-UNALLOC is raised, LMP-SF and LMP-SD are suppressed. If LMP-SF is raised, it suppresses LMP-SD. LMP-SF and LMP-UNALLOC both suppress near-end LOS-type alarms for DWDM clients. LMP-SD, however, does not suppress LOS alarms.

This condition clears when the far-end trouble has been cleared.

Clear the LMP-SD Condition


Step 1 Look for and clear any of the following alarms in Table 2-9 and Table 2-10 occurring on the far-end port.

2.5.151  LMP-SF

Default Severity:Not Alarmed (NA), Non-Service-Affecting (NSA)

Logical Object: GE

The LMP Data Link Signal Fail condition notifies the near-end user of a far-end problem (and thus is NSA for the near end). The near-end's TCC2/TCC2P receives an LMP link summary or channel status message that the data link service has failed. The signal fail threshold provisionable.

LMP-SF clears when the TCC2/TCC2P receives a link summary or channel status message reporting that the data link is in the Signal Okay (OK) state.

LMP-SF is part of an alarm hierarchy that includes LMP-SD, and LMP-UNALLOC. The hierarchy is as follows: If LMP-UNALLOC is raised, LMP-SF and LMP-SD are suppressed. If LMP-SF is raised, it suppresses LMP-SD. LMP-SF and LMP-UNALLOC both suppress near-end LOS-type alarms for DWDM clients, but LMP-SD does not suppress LOS-type alarms.

This condition clears when the far-end trouble has been cleared.

Clear the LMP-SF Condition


Step 1 Look for and clear any of the following alarms in Table 2-11, Table 2-12, or Table 2-13 occurring on the far-end port.

2.5.152  LMP-UNALLOC

Default Severity:Not Alarmed (NA), Non-Service-Affecting (NSA)

Logical Object: GE

The LMP Data Link Unallocated condition is raised when the TCC2/TCC2P receives an LMP link summary or channel status message reporting that the data link as unallocated for data traffic. The condition clears when the data link is allocated and sends an LMP link summary or channel status message to this effect. If a data link has the LMP-UNALLOC alarm raised against it, this should suppress all other alarms on the client port, since the far-end node is not using the errored port. (Consequently you do not have to clear any alarms on the far-end node's unused port.)

LMP-UNALLOC is part of an alarm hierarchy that includes LMP-SD, and LMP-SF. The hierarchy is as follows: If LMP-UNALLOC is raised, LMP-SF and LMP-SD are suppressed. If LMP-SF is raised, it suppresses LMP-SD. LMP-SF and LMP-UNALLOC both suppress near-end LOS-type DWDM client alarms, but LMP-SD does not.

In most cases, this condition is an informational notice at the near-end node that the far-end port is not being utilized. If, however, the far-end port should be allocated for traffic, log into the Technical Support Website at http://www.cisco.com/techsupport for more information or call Cisco TAC (1 800 553-2447).


2.5.153  LOCKOUT-REQ

Default Severity: Not Alarmed (NA), Non-Service-Affecting (NSA)

Logical Objects: 2R, EQPT, ESCON, FC, GE, ISC, OTS, TRUNK

The Lockout Switch Request on Facility or Equipment condition occurs when a user initiates a lockout switch request for an OC-N port in a 1+1 facility protection group. This can be accomplished by locking traffic onto the working port with the LOCK ON command (thus locking it off the protect port), or locking it off the protect port with the LOCK OUT command. In either case, the protect port will show "Lockout of Protection," and the Conditions window will show the LOCKOUT-REQ condition.

A lockout prevents protection switching. Clearing the lockout again allows protection switching and clears the LOCKOUT-REQ condition.

Clear the LOCKOUT-REQ Condition


Step 1 Complete the "Clear a Lock-On or Lockout Command" procedure.

Step 2 If the condition does not clear, log into the Cisco Technical Support Website at http://www.cisco.com/techsupport for more information or log into http://www.cisco.com/warp/public/687/Directory/DirTAC.shtml to obtain a directory of toll-free Technical Support numbers for your country.

Default Severity: Not Alarmed (NA), Non-Service-Affecting (NSA)

Logical Objects: 2R, EQPT, ESCON, FC, GE, ISC

The Lockout Switch Request on Facility or Equipment condition occurs in a Y-cable MXP or TXP client protection group for the above-listed clients when a user initiates a lockout switch request. The condition is raised when you lock traffic onto the working port with the Lock On command (thus locking it off the protect port), or you lock it off the protect port with the Lock Out command. In either case, the protect port will show "Lockout of Protection," and the Conditions window will show the LOCKOUT-REQ condition.

A lockout prevents protection switching. Clearing the lockout again allows protection switching and clears the LOCKOUT-REQ condition.

Clear the LOCKOUT-REQ (2R, EQPT, ESCON, FC, GE, ISC) Condition


Step 1 Complete the "Clear a Lock-On or Lockout Command" procedure.

Step 2 If the condition does not clear, log into the Technical Support Website at http://www.cisco.com/techsupport for more information or call Cisco TAC (1 800 553-2447).


2.5.155  LOCKOUT-REQ (TRUNK)

Default Severity: Not Alarmed (NA), Non-Service-Affecting (NSA)

Logical Object: TRUNK

The Lockout Switch Request on Facility or Equipment condition occurs in an MXP or TXP trunk port splitter protection group when you lock traffic onto the working port with the Lock On command (thus locking it off the protect port), or lock it off the protect port with the Lock Out command. In either case, the protect port will show "Lockout of Protection," and the Conditions window will show the LOCKOUT-REQ condition.

A lockout prevents protection switching. Clearing the lockout again allows protection switching and clears the LOCKOUT-REQ condition.

Clear the LOCKOUT-REQ (TRUNK) Condition


Step 1 Complete the "Clear a Lock-On or Lockout Command" procedure.

Step 2 If the condition does not clear, log into the Technical Support Website at http://www.cisco.com/techsupport for more information or call Cisco TAC (1 800 553-2447).


2.5.156  LOF (BITS)

Default Severity: Minor (MN), Non-Service-Affecting (NSA)

Logical Object: BITS

The Loss of Frame (LOF) BITS alarm occurs when a port on theTCC2/TCC2P BITS input detects an LOF on the incoming BITS timing reference signal. LOF indicates that the receiving ONS system has lost frame delineation in the incoming data.


Note The procedure assumes that the BITS timing reference signal is functioning properly. It also assumes the alarm is not appearing during node turn-up.


Clear the LOF (BITS) Alarm


Step 1 Verify that the line framing and line coding match between the BITS input and the TCC2/TCC2P:

a. In node or card view, note the slot and port reporting the alarm.

b. Find the coding and framing formats of the external BITS timing source. The formats should be in the user documentation for the external BITS timing source or on the timing source itself.

c. In node view (single-shelf mode) or shelf view (multishelf mode), click the Provisioning > Timing > BITS Facilities tabs.

d. Verify that the Coding setting matches the coding of the BITS timing source, either B8ZS or AMI.

e. If the coding does not match, click Coding and choose the appropriate coding from the drop-down list.

f. Verify that Framing matches the framing of the BITS timing source, either ESF or SF (D4).

g. If the framing does not match, click Framing and choose the appropriate framing from the drop-down list.


Note On the timing subtab, the B8ZS coding field is normally paired with ESF in the Framing field and the AMI coding field is normally paired with SF (D4) in the Framing field.


Step 2 If the alarm does not clear when the line framing and line coding match between the BITS input and the TCC2/TCC2P, complete the "Physically Replace a Card" procedure for the TCC2/TCC2P.

Step 3 If the alarm does not clear, log into the Technical Support Website at http://www.cisco.com/techsupport for more information or call Cisco TAC (1 800 553-2447) in order to report a Service-Affecting (SA) problem.


2.5.157  LOF (TRUNK)

Default Severity: Critical (CR), Service-Affecting (SA)

Logical Object: TRUNK, OCN

The Loss of Frame for the DWDM trunk applies to the trunk optical or electrical signal that is carried to TXP_MR_10G, TXP_MR_2.5G, TXPP_MR_2.5G, TXP_MR_10E, TXP_MR_10E_C, TXP_MR_10E_L, MXP_2.5G_10G, ADM-10G and OTU2_XP cards. It indicates that the receiving ONS system has lost frame delineation in the incoming data from trunk that serves the cards. LOF occurs when the SONET overhead loses a valid framing pattern for 3 milliseconds. Receiving two consecutive valid A1/A2 framing patterns clears the alarm.


Note In R7.01, when an LOF alarm occurs on TXP or MXP trunks, G709/SONET/SDH TCAs are suppressed. For details, see the "Alarm and TCA Monitoring and Management" chapter in the Cisco ONS 15454 DWDM Reference Manual.


Clear the LOF (TRUNK) Alarm


Step 1 Using site practices, verify fiber continuity to the port. Refer to the "Network Reference" chapter of the Cisco ONS 15454 DWDM Reference Manual for a procedure to detect a fiber cut.

Step 2 If the cabling is good, verify that the correct port is in service by completing the following steps:

a. Confirm that the LED is correctly illuminated on the physical card. A green ACT/SBY LED indicates an active card. An amber ACT/SBY LED indicates a standby card.

b. To determine whether the port is in service, in node view (single-shelf mode) or shelf view (multishelf mode), double-click the card in CTC to open the card view.

c. Click the Provisioning > Line tabs.

d. Verify that the Admin State column lists the port as IS (or Unlocked).

e. If the Admin State column lists the port as OOS,MT (or Locked,maintenance) or OOS,DSBLD (or Locked,disabled), click the column and choose IS , or Unlocked.

f. Click Apply.

Step 3 If the correct port is in service, clean the fiber according to site practice. If no site practice exists, complete the fiber cleaning procedure in the "Maintain the Node" chapter of the Cisco ONS 15454 DWDM Procedure Guide.

Step 4 If the alarm does not clear, verify that the power level of the optical signal is within the TXP or MXP card receiver specifications. (These specifications are listed in the "Hardware Specifications" appendix of the Cisco ONS 15454 DWDM Reference Manual.)

Step 5 If the optical power level is within specifications, use an optical test set to verify that a valid signal exists on the line. For specific procedures to use the test set equipment, consult the manufacturer. Test the line as close to the receiving card as possible.

Step 6 If a valid signal exists, replace the connector on the backplane.

Step 7 Repeat Steps 1 to 6 for any other port on the card reporting the LOF.

Step 8 If the alarm does not clear, look for and troubleshoot any other alarm that could identify the source of the problem.

Step 9 If no other alarms exist that could be the source of the LOF, or if clearing an alarm did not clear the LOF, complete the "Physically Replace a Card" procedure for the reporting card.

Step 10 If the alarm does not clear, or if you need assistance conducting network troubleshooting tests, call Cisco TAC (1 800 553-2447) to report a Service-Affecting (SA) problem.


2.5.158  LOGBUFR90

Default Severity: Minor (MN), Non-Service-Affecting (NSA)

Logical Object: SYSTEM

The Log Buffer Over 90 alarm indicates that the per-NE queue of incoming alarm, event, or update capacity of 5000 entries is over 90 percent full. LOGBUFR90 will clear if CTC recovers. If it does not clear, LOGBUFROVFL occurs.


Note LOGBUFR90 is an informational alarm and does not require troubleshooting.


2.5.159  LOGBUFROVFL

Default Severity: Minor (MN), Non-Service-Affecting (NSA)

Logical Object: SYSTEM

The Log Buffer Overflow alarm indicates that the CTC per-NE queue of incoming alarm, event, or updates, which has a capacity of 5,000 entries, has overflowed. This happens only very rarely. However if it does, you must restart the CTC session. It is likely that some updates will have been missed if this alarm occurs.

Clear the LOGBUFROVFL Alarm


Step 1 Restart the CTC session.s

Step 2 If the alarm does not clear, log into the Technical Support Website at http://www.cisco.com/techsupport for more information or call TAC (1-800-553-2447).


2.5.160  LO-LASERBIAS

Default Severity: Minor (MN), Non-Service-Affecting (NSA)

Logical Objects: EQPT, OCN/STMN, PPM

The Equipment Low Transmit Laser Bias Current alarm is raised against the TXP and MXP card laser performance. The alarm indicates that the card laser has reached the minimum laser bias tolerance.

If the LO-LASERBIAS alarm threshold is set at 0 percent (the default), the laser's usability has ended. If the threshold is set at 5 percent to 10 percent, the card is still usable for several weeks or months before you need to replace it.


Note For general information about MXP and TXP cards, refer to the "Card Reference" chapter in the Cisco ONS 15454 DWDM Reference Manual. For information about provisioning them, refer to the "Provision Transponder and Muxponder Cards" chapter in the Cisco ONS 15454 DWDM Procedure Guide.

Step 1 Complete the "Physically Replace a Card" procedure.

Step 2 If the alarm does not clear, log into the Technical Support Website at http://www.cisco.com/techsupport for more information or call Cisco TAC (1 800 553-2447).


2.5.161  LO-LASERTEMP

Default Severity: Minor (MN), Non-Service-Affecting (NSA)

Logical Objects: EQPT, OCN/STMN, PPM

The Equipment Low Laser Optical Transceiver Temperature alarm applies to the TXP and MXP cards. LO-LASERTEMP occurs when the internally measured transceiver temperature falls below the card setting by35.6 degrees F or 2 degrees C. A laser temperature change affects the transmitted wavelength. (This temperature is equivalent to about 200 picometers of wavelength.)

When the TXP or MXP card raises this alarm, the laser is automatically shut off. The An LOS for OCN/STMN is raised at the far-end node and the "DUP-IPADDR" alarm on page 2-65 is raised at the near end. (Both of these alarms are described in the "Alarm Troubleshooting" chapter of the Cisco ONS 15454 Troubleshooting Guide or the Cisco ONS 15454SDH Troubleshooting Guide). To verify the card laser temperature level, double-click the card in node view (single-shelf mode) or shelf view (multishelf mode) and click the Performance > Optics PM > Current Values tabs. Maximum, minimum, and average laser temperatures are shown in the Current column entries in the Laser Temp rows.


Note For general information about MXP and TXP cards, refer to the "Card Reference" chapter in the Cisco ONS 15454 DWDM Reference Manual. For information about provisioning them, refer to the "Provision Transponder and Muxponder Cards" chapter in the Cisco ONS 15454 DWDM Procedure Guide.

The alarm applies to MXP_2.5G_10G, TXP_MR_10G, TXP_MR_2.5G, TXP_MR_10E, TXP_MR_10E_C, TXP_MR_10E_L, TXPP_MR_2.5G, ADM-10G, and OTU2_XP cards when the MFAS) overhead field is errored for more than five frames and persists for more than 3 milliseconds.


Note For general information about MXP and TXP cards, refer to the "Card Reference" chapter in the Cisco ONS 15454 DWDM Reference Manual. For information about provisioning them, refer to the "Provision Transponder and Muxponder Cards" chapter in the Cisco ONS 15454 DWDM Procedure Guide.


Clear the LOM Alarm


Step 1 Ensure that the fiber connector for the card is completely plugged in. For more information about fiber connections and card insertion, refer to the "Turn Up a Node" chapter in the Cisco ONS 15454 DWDM Procedure Guide.

Step 2 If the bit error rate (BER) threshold is correct and at the expected level, use an optical test set to measure the power level of the line to ensure it is within guidelines. For specific procedures to use the test set equipment, consult the manufacturer.

Step 3 If the optical power level is good, verify that optical receive levels are within the acceptable range. Ranges for ONS 15454 DWDM cards are located in the "Hardware Specifications" appendix of the Cisco ONS 15454 DWDM Reference Manual.

Step 4 If receive levels are good, clean the fibers at both ends according to site practice. If no site practice exists, complete the fiber cleaning procedure in the "Maintain the Node" chapter in the Cisco ONS 15454 DWDM Procedure Guide.

Step 5 If the condition does not clear, verify that single-mode fiber is used.

Step 6 If the fiber is of the correct type, verify that a single-mode laser is used at the far-end node.

Step 7 Clean the fiber connectors at both ends for a signal degrade according to site practice.

Step 8 Verify that a single-mode laser is used at the far end.

Step 9 If the problem does not clear, the transmitter at the other end of the optical line could be failing and require replacement. Refer to the "Physical Card Reseating, Resetting, and Replacement" section.

Step 10 If the alarm does not clear, log into the Technical Support Website at http://www.cisco.com/techsupport for more information or call Cisco TAC (1 800 553-2447) in order to report a Service-Affecting (SA) problem.


2.5.163  LOP-P

Default Severity: Critical (CR), Service-Affecting (SA)

Logical Object: STSMON, STSTRM

A Loss of Pointer Path alarm indicates that the SONET path pointer in the overhead has been lost. LOP occurs when valid H1/H2 pointer bytes are missing from the overhead. Receiving equipment monitors the H1/H2 pointer bytes to locate the SONET payload. An LOP-P alarm occurs when eight, nine, or ten consecutive frames do not have valid pointer values. The alarm clears when three consecutive valid pointers are received.

The LOP-P alarm can occur when the received payload does not match the provisioned payload. The alarm is caused by a circuit type mismatch on the concatenation facility. For example, if an STS-1 is sent across a circuit provisioned for STS-3c, an LOP-P alarm occurs.

For the FC_MR-4 card, an LOP-P is raised if a port is configured for a SONET signal but receives an SONET signal instead. (This information is contained in the H1 byte bits 5 and 6.)

Clear the LOP-P Alarm


Caution Always use the supplied electrostatic discharge wristband when working with a powered ONS 15454. Plug the wristband cable into the ESD jack located on the lower-right edge of the shelf assembly.


Step 1 In node view, click the Circuits tab and view the alarmed circuit.

Step 2 Verify the circuit size listed in the Size column. If the size is different from what is expected, such as an STS3c instead of an STS1, this causes the alarm.

Step 3 If you have been monitoring the circuit with optical test equipment, a mismatch between the provisioned circuit size and the size expected by the test set can cause this alarm. For specific procedures to use the test set equipment, consult the manufacturer. Ensure that the test set monitoring is set up for the same size as the circuit provisioning.

Refer to the manufacturer's instructions for test-set use.

Step 4 If the error is not due to an incorrectly configured test set, the error is in the provisioned CTC circuit size. Complete the "Delete a Circuit" procedure.

Step 5 Recreate the circuit for the correct size. For procedures, refer to the "Create Circuits and VT Tunnels" chapter in the Cisco ONS 15454 Procedure Guide.

Step 6 If the alarm does not clear, log into the Technical Support Website at http://www.cisco.com/techsupport for more information or call Cisco TAC (1 800 553-2447) in order to report a Service-Affecting (SA) problem.

2.5.172  LOS-P (AOTS, OMS, OTS)

Default Severity: Critical (CR), Service-Affecting (SA)

Logical Objects: AOTS, OMS, OTS

The Loss of Signal for Optical Channel alarm (OMS and OTS layer) applies to all input ports of the following DWDM cards: AD-1B-xx.x, AD-4B-xx.x, 32DMX, 32DMX-O, 40DMX-C, 40DMX-CE, OPT-PRE, OPT-BST, OPT-AMP-C, OPT-AMP-17-C, 40SMR1-C, 40-SMR2-C, and OSC-CSM.

For AD-1C-xx.x, AD-2C-xx.x, AD-4C-xx.x, 32MUX-O, 32WSS, 40WSS-C, and WXC cards, this alarm applies only to the input ports where an aggregate signal is managed, such as the COM-RX, EXP-RX, or xxBAND-RX ports). These ports are solely used for the AOTS, OMS, and OTS layers.

LOS-P (AOTS, OMS, or OTS) indicates a loss of receive signal, which means that the monitored input power value has crossed the Power Failure Low Threshold associated to the port.


Note When the LOS-P alarm is raised on the LINE-RX port of the OPT-BST, OPT-AMP-x-C, or OSC-CSM card, it can indicate a fiber cut. Refer to the "Network Reference" chapter of the Cisco ONS 15454 DWDM Reference Manual for a fiber cut detection procedure.



Note When the LOS-P alarm is raised on the COM-RX port of the 32DMX-C, 32DMX-L, 40DMX-C, 40-DMX-CE, or WXC cards, it can indicate the presence of undesirable counter-propagating light entering the card from the drop ports. The counter-propagating light can be inserted into these cards as a result of incorrect cabling of transponder or line cards to the fiber patch-panel (in particular, swapping RX with TX patchcords). This behavior is only applicable to optical modules with vendor IDs 2049, 2050, 2304, and 2306. You can view the vendor IDs at CTC > Card View > Inventory tab.


Clear the LOS-P (AOTS, OMS, OTS) Alarm


Step 1 Verify that the card has the correct physical behavior by checking the LED on the physical card. A green ACT/SBY LED indicates an active card, and a red ACT/SBY LED indicates a failed card. If the LED is red, complete the "Physically Replace a Card" procedure and continue to Step 8.


Note When you replace a card with an identical type of card, you do not need to make any changes to the database other than restoring the card's port to the IS,AINS administrative state.

Tip To view the alarm thresholds (as opposed to the warning thresholds), check the Alarm check box on the bottom-left of the Optics Thresholds tab and click Reset.


d. Compare the actual Power value with the Alarm Threshold value and complete one of the following actions:

If the Power value is less than the Fail Low threshold, go to Step 3.

If the Power value is greater than the Fail Low threshold plus the alarm hysteresis (allowance value) default of 1 dBm, complete the "Reset a Card in CTC" procedure for the card.

If the alarm does not clear, complete the "Physically Replace a Card" procedure and continue to Step 8.


Note When you replace a card with an identical type of card, you do not need to make any changes to the database other than restoring the card's port to the IS,AINS administrative state.


Step 3 Verify the fiber continuity to the port by following site practices. Refer to the "Network Reference" chapter of the Cisco ONS 15454 DWDM Reference Manual for a procedure to detect a fiber cut.

Step 4 Check the "Internal Connections" file generated by Cisco TransportPlanner for the node where the errored card is located. If necessary, recable the node cabling in accordance with the MP file connections list. To cable a DWDM node, refer to the "Turn Up a Node" chapter in the Cisco ONS 15454 DWDM Procedure Guide.

Step 5 If the cabling is good, use an optical test set to measure the power value on the output port connected to the alarmed card. For specific procedures to use the test set equipment, consult the manufacturer. If the power difference reported is greater than 1 dBm (standard fiber jumper insertion loss is 0.3 dBm), clean the fiber according to site practice. If no site practice exists, complete the fiber-cleaning procedure in the "Maintain the Node" chapter of the Cisco ONS 15454 DWDM Procedure Guide.


Note Unplugging the fiber can cause a traffic hit. To avoid this, perform a traffic switch if possible. Refer to the "Manage the Node" chapter in the Cisco ONS 15454 DWDM Procedure Guide for detailed information.


Step 6 If the port on which the alarm is raised is connected to a remote CRS-1 or ASR 9000 series router, verify that the wavelength configured on the router interface is the same as that configured for the port. Check the router configuration by using these steps:

a. Enter the following command on the router to validate the remote node configuration.

Router> show controllers dwdm interface id x/x/x/x 

b. Check the information displayed under Optics Status to verify the configured wavelength.

c. If the wavelength is different from that configured for the port, reset it by entering the following command on the router in global configuration mode.

Router (config)# controller dwdm interface id x/x/x/x wavelength channel number 


Note The wavelength configured for the port can be checked in CTC card view.


Step 7 If the alarm does not clear, follow the general troubleshooting rules in the "Network Reference" chapter in the Cisco ONS 15454 DWDM Reference Manual for identifying any other upstream alarm in the logical signal flow that could be the root cause of the outstanding alarm.

Step 8 If the alarm does not clear, log into the Technical Support Website at http://www.cisco.com/techsupport for more information or call Cisco TAC (1 800 553-2447) in order to report a service-affecting problem.


2.5.173  LOS-P (OCH)

Default Severity: Critical (CR), Service-Affecting (SA)

Logical Object: OCH

The Loss of Signal for Optical Channel alarm on the OCH layer applies to the channel Add or pass-through ports on the AD-1C-xx.x, AD-2C-xx.x, AD-4C-xx.x, 32MUX-O, 40MUX, 32WSS-O, 40WSS-C, 40-SMR1-C, 40-SMR2-C, GE-XP, 10GE-XP, and ADM-10G DWDM cards.

For the 32WSS-O and 40WSS-C, the LOS-P alarm can be associated with Add ports as well as pass-through internal ports. If the LOS-P (OCH) alarm is raised against this kind of port a different troubleshooting procedure is needed because the port does not have an optical power source directly connected to it. In this case, follow the general troubleshooting rules for network-level (inter-node) troubleshooting in Chapter 1 "General Troubleshooting," to identify upstream alarms in the logical signal flow that could cause an LOS-P.

LOS-P (OCH) indicates a loss of received signal, which means the monitored input power value has crossed the Power Failure Low threshold associated with the port in accordance with the specific VOA power reference setpoint provisioned on VOA along the path.


Note For more information about provisioning VOA setpoints, refer to the "Network Reference" chapters of the Cisco ONS 15454 DWDM Reference Manual.


Clear the LOS-P (OCH) Alarm


Step 1 Verify that the card is exhibiting correct behavior by checking the LED behavior on the physical card. A green ACT/SBY LED indicates an active card, and a red ACT/SBY LED indicates a failed card. If the LED is red, complete the "Physically Replace a Card" procedure and continue to Step 9.


Note When you replace a card with an identical type of card, you do not need to make any changes to the database other than restoring the card's port to the IS,AINS administrative state.


Step 2 Verify that there truly is a loss of received signal by completing the following steps:

a. In node view (single-shelf mode) or shelf view (multishelf mode), double-click the card to open the card view.

b. View the proper input power values by clicking one of the following tabs as appropriate:

For the AD-xC-xx.x card, click the Provisioning > Optical Chn > Parameters tabs.

For the ADM-10G card, click Performance > Optics PM > Current Values tabs.

For the 32MUX-O and 40MUX cards, click the Provisioning > Optical Chn > Parameters tabs.

For the 32WSS-O and 40WSS-C cards, click the Provisioning > Optical Chn: Optical Connector x > Parameters tabs.

For the 40-SMR1-C and 40-SMR2-C cards, click the Provisioning > Optical Line > Parameters tabs.

c. Display the proper Power Failure Low threshold by clicking one of the following tabs as appropriate:

For the AD-xC-xx.x card, click the Provisioning > Optical Chn > Optics Thresholds tabs.

For the ADM-10G card, click Provisioning > Optics Thresholds tabs.

For the 32MUX-O and 40MUX cards, click the Provisioning > Optical Chn > Optics Thresholds tabs.

For the 32WSS-O and 40WSS-C cards, click the Provisioning > Optical Chn: Optical Connector x > Optics Thresholds tabs.

For the 40-SMR1-C and 40-SMR2-C cards, click the Provisioning > Optical Line > Optics Thresholds tabs.


Tip To view the alarm thresholds (as opposed to the warning thresholds), check the Alarm check box on the bottom-left of the Optics Thresholds tab and click Reset.


d. Compare the actual assigned Power value with the Alarm Threshold value and complete one of the following actions:

If the Power value is less than the Fail Low threshold, go to Step 3.

If the Power value is greater than the Fail Low threshold plus the alarm hysteresis (or allowance value) default of 1 dBm, complete the "Reset a Card in CTC" procedure for the card.

If the alarm does not clear, complete the "Physically Replace a Card" procedure and continue to Step 9.


Note When you replace a card with an identical type of card, you do not need to make any changes to the database other than restoring the card's port to the IS,AINS administrative state.


Step 3 Verify the fiber continuity to the port using site practices. Refer to the "Network Reference" chapter of the Cisco ONS 15454 DWDM Reference Manual for a procedure to detect a fiber cut.

Step 4 Check the "Internal Connections" file generated by Cisco TransportPlanner for the node where the card is located. If necessary, recable the node in accordance with the MP file connections list. For procedures to cable a DWDM node, refer to the "Turn Up a Node" chapter of the Cisco ONS 15454 DWDM Procedure Guide.

Step 5 If the cabling is good, verify that each involved optical signal source, including TXP, MXP or ITU-T line card trunk transmit ports, is in the IS (or Unlocked) administrative state. To do this, click the following tabs as appropriate:

For the ADM-10G card, click the Provisioning > Line > Ports tabs.

For the TXP_MR_10G card, click the Provisioning > Line > SONET (or Provisioning > Line > SDH) tabs.

For the TXP_MR_10E card, click the Provisioning > Line > SONET (or Provisioning > Line > SDH) tabs.

For the TXP_MR_2.5G card, click the Provisioning > Line > SONET (or Provisioning > Line > SDH) tabs.

For the MXP_2.5G_10E card, click the Provisioning > Line > Trunk tabs.

For the MXP_2.5G_10G card, click the Provisioning > Line > SONET (or Provisioning > Line > SDH) tabs.

If the port administrative state is not IS (or Unlocked), choose IS , or Unlocked, from the Admin state drop-down list. If the alarm does not clear, continue with Step 9.


Note If the LOS-P (OCH) alarm applies to a 32WSS-O passthrough port, it means that a single optical source is not directly connected to the port. In this case, follow the general troubleshooting rules given in "Network Level (Internode) Troubleshooting" to identify any other alarm upstream to the logical signal flow that could be the root cause for the outstanding alarm.


Step 6 If the signal source is in IS (or Unlocked) administrative state, use an optical test set to verify that the transmit laser is active. For specific procedures to use the test set equipment, consult the manufacturer.

Step 7 If the laser is active, compare the card's provisioned transmit optical power value with the expected range in the "Provision Transponder and Muxponder Cards" chapter of the Cisco ONS 15454 DWDM Procedure Guide. To display the provisioned transmit optical power values, click the following tabs as appropriate:

For the ADM-10G card, click Performance > Optics PM > Current Values tabs.

For the TXP_MR_10G card, click the Performance > Optics PM > Current Values > Trunk Port tabs.

For the TXP_MR_10E card, click the Performance > Optics PM > Current Values > Trunk Port tabs.

For the MXP_2.5G_10E card, click the Performance > Optics PM > Current Values > Trunk Port tabs.

For the MXP_2.5G_10G card, click the Performance > Optics PM > Current Values > Trunk Port tabs.

Step 8 Use a standard power meter to measure actual transmit optical power for the following cards as applicable:

ADM-10G

TXP_MR_2.5G

TXPP_MR_2.5G

MXP_MR_2.5G

MXPP_MR_2.5G

Every ITU-T line card

If the tested optical transmit optical power is within the expected range, go to Step 9. If the actual power value is outside the specification range, complete the "Physically Replace a Card" procedure. (These are listed in the "Hardware Specifications" appendix of the Cisco ONS 15454 DWDM Reference Manual.) When the newly installed card becomes active, verify that the LOS-P (OCH) alarm clears. If it does not, continue with Step 9.


Tip If a spare card is unavailable and the transmit power still functions, you can temporarily clear the LOS-P alarm by following the general procedure to add path VOAs during startup failure as noted in the "Perform Node Acceptance Tests" chapter of the Cisco ONS 15454 DWDM Procedure Guide. For more information about provisioning VOA setpoints, refer to the "Network Reference" chapter of the Cisco ONS 15454 DWDM Reference Manual.


Step 9 If the power is within the expected range, return to the port that reported LOS-P and clean the alarmed port's fiber according to site practice. If no site practice exists, complete the procedure in the "Maintain the Node" chapter of the Cisco ONS 15454 DWDM Procedure Guide.


Note Unplugging the fiber can cause a traffic hit. To avoid this, perform a traffic switch if possible. Refer to the "Protection Switching, Lock Initiation, and Clearing" section for basic instructions, or refer to the "Manage the Node" chapter in the Cisco ONS 15454 DWDM Procedure Guide for more detailed information.


Step 10 If the alarm does not clear, add path VOAs during startup failure as noted in the "Perform Node Acceptance Tests" chapter of the Cisco ONS 15454 DWDM Procedure Guide to remedy the problem.

Step 11 If the alarm does not clear, log into the Technical Support Website at http://www.cisco.com/techsupport for more information or call Cisco TAC (1 800 553-2447) in order to report a service-affecting problem.

If a 10-Gbps-compatible shelf assembly contains only cards introduced before Release 3.1, then an older fan-tray assembly (15454-FTA-2) can be used and does not report an MEA alarm.

Clear the MEA (FAN) Alarm


Step 1 Determine whether the shelf assembly is a newer 10-Gbps-compatible shelf assembly (15454-SA-ANSI or 15454-SA-HD) or an earlier shelf assembly. In node view (single-shelf mode) or shelf view (multishelf mode), click the Inventory tab.

Under the HW Part # column, if the part number is 800-19857-XX or 800-19856-XX, then you have a 15454-SA-ANSI shelf. If the part number is 800-24848-XX, you have a 15454-SA-HD shelf.

Under the HW Part # column, if the number is not one of those listed here, then you are using an earlier shelf assembly.

Step 2 If you have a 10-Gbps-compatible shelf assembly (15454-SA-ANSI or 15454-SA-HD), the alarm indicates that an older incompatible fan-tray assembly is installed in the shelf assembly. Obtain a newer fan-tray assembly (15454-FTA3) with a 5-A fuse and complete the "Replace the Fan-Tray Assembly" procedure.

Step 3 If you are using an earlier shelf assembly, the alarm indicates that you are using a newer fan-tray assembly (15454-FTA3), which is incompatible with the earlier version of the shelf assembly. Obtain an earlier version of the fan-tray assembly (15454-FTA2) and complete the "Replace the Fan-Tray Assembly" procedure.

Logical Objects: AICI-AEP, AICI-AIE, AIP, BPLANE, FAN, PPM

The Manufacturing Data Memory Failure alarm occurs when the EEPROM fails on a card or component, or when the TCC2/TCC2P cannot read this memory. EEPROM stores manufacturing data that a system TCC2/TCC2P uses to determine system compatibility and shelf inventory status. Unavailability of this information can cause less-significant problems. The AIP EEPROM also stores the system MAC address. If the MFGMEM alarm indicates EEPROM failure on these panels, IP connectivity could be disrupted and the system icon is grayed out in CTC network view.


Tip When you lose LAN connectivity with an ONS system due to an MFGMEM alarm on the AIP, you can reestablish node management by disconnecting the Ethernet cable from the panel and connecting it to the active TCC2/TCC2P LAN port.


Clear the MFGMEM Alarm


Step 1 Complete the "Reset an Active TCC2/TCC2P Card and Activate the Standby Card" procedure.

Wait ten minutes to verify that the card you reset completely reboots and becomes the standby card.

Step 2 If the reset card has not rebooted successfully, or the alarm has not cleared, call Cisco TAC (1 800 553-2447). If the Cisco TAC technician tells you to reseat the card, complete the "Remove and Reinsert (Reseat) the Standby TCC2/TCC2P Card" procedure. If the Cisco TAC technician tells you to remove the card and reinstall a new one, complete the "Physically Replace a Card" procedure.

Step 3 If the MFGMEM alarm continues to report after replacing the TCC2/TCC2Ps, the problem lies with the EEPROM.

Step 4 If the MFGMEM is reported from the fan-tray assembly, obtain a fan-tray assembly and complete the "Replace the Fan-Tray Assembly" procedure.

Step 5
