Turn Up a Node

This chapter explains how to provision a single Cisco ONS 15454 dense wavelength division multiplexing (DWDM) node and turn it up for service, including assigning the node name, date, and time; provisioning timing references; provisioning network attributes such as IP address and default router; setting up users and user security; installing cards; and creating DWDM connections.


Note The procedures and tasks described in this chapter for the Cisco ONS 15454 platform is applicable to the Cisco ONS 15454 M2 and Cisco ONS 15454 M6 platforms, unless noted otherwise.



Note Procedures in this chapter require that you have a network plan calculated for your DWDM network with Cisco Transport Planner, Release 9.2. Cisco Transport Planner is a DWDM planning tool that is available from your Cisco account representative. Cisco Transport Planner prepares a shelf plan for each network node and calculates the power and attenuation levels for the DWDM cards installed in the node. For information about Cisco Transport Planner, contact your Cisco account representative. For instructions on using Cisco Transport Planner, refer to the Cisco Transport Planner DWDM Operations Guide.



Note Unless otherwise specified, in this document “ONS 15454” refers to both ANSI (ONS 15454) and ETSI (ONS 15454 SDH) shelf assemblies.



Note Cisco Transport Controller (CTC) views referenced in these procedures depend on the ONS 15454 mode. In single-shelf mode, the views are network, node, and card. In multishelf mode, the views are network, multishelf, shelf, and card. For more information about CTC views, refer to CTC Enhancements, Operations, and Shortcuts.

Caution An optical shelf in a multishelf configuration must be provisioned as the node controller shelf and not as a subtending shelf. Otherwise, traffic will be dropped. If there are no slots available on the optical shelf to install the MS-ISC-100T cards (needed for a node controller shelf), install and configure the Cisco Catalyst 2950 or Cisco Catalyst 3560. See the “NTP-G302 Connect the ONS 15454 Multishelf Node and Subtending Shelves to a Catalyst 2950” procedure or the “NTP-G295 Connect the ONS 15454 Multishelf Node and Subtending Shelves to a Catalyst 3560” procedure in the Cisco CPT and Cisco ONS 15454 Hardware Installation Guide. If you are using an ONS 15454 M6, then refer to the applicable procedure for connecting the ONS 15454 M6 as the node controller in the Cisco CPT and Cisco ONS 15454 Hardware Installation Guide.


Step 1 Complete the DLP-G46 Log into CTC task at the node that you want to configure as a multishelf node.

Step 2 If you want to set up the login node as the node controller, complete the following steps. If not, continue with Step 3.

a. In node view (single-node mode) or multishelf view (multishelf mode), click the Provisioning > General > Multishelf Config tabs.

b. Click Enable as Node Controller .

c. From the LAN Config drop-down list, complete one of the following:

  • Choose Ethernet Switch if MS-ISC-100T cards or the Catalyst 2950 or the Catalyst 3560 switches are already installed and configured. Choose the public VLAN ID and private VLAN ID for the ONS 15454 multishelf node. In case of an ONS 15454 M6, the public VLAN ID and private VLAN ID are static (1 and 2 respectively).

Note Public VLAN ID is used by the node controller to communicate with the external network. Private VLAN ID is used by the node controller to communicate with the subtending shelves.



Note If the ONS 15454 M6 shelf is used as the node controller, then you can connect the subtending shelves directly to the MSM ports on the ECU. However, a Catalyst 3560 switch can also be used along with the ONS 15454 M6 node controller to extend the number of subtending shelves.


  • Choose Stand-Alone if MS-ISC-100T cards are not installed yet but will be included in the final layout. This option will allow a safe migration of the TCC2/TCC2P/TCC3/TNC/TNCE/TSC/TSCE card database when the multishelf configuration is complete.

d. Click Apply .

e. In the confirmation dialog box, click Yes to allow the node to reboot. The CTC view changes to network view and the node icon changes to gray. Wait for the reboot to finish. (This might take several minutes.)

    • Security Level—Choose a security level for the user: RETRIEVE , MAINTENANCE , PROVISIONING , or SUPERUSER .

Note Each security level has a different idle time. The idle time is the length of time that CTC can remain idle before it locks up and the password must be reentered. The defaults are: Retrieve user = unlimited, Maintenance user = 60 minutes, Provisioning user = 30 minutes, and Superuser = 15 minutes. To change the idle times, refer to the NTP-G88 Modify Users and Change Security procedure.

Step 1 Complete the DLP-G46 Log into CTC task for the node you will turn up. If you are already logged in, continue with Step 2.

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

Step 3 In the Node Name/TID field, type a name for the node. For TL1 compliance, names must begin with an alpha character and have no more than 20 alphanumeric (a-z, A-Z, 0-9) characters.


Note To avoid errors when you import the Cisco Transport Planner configuration file using the G143 Import the Cisco Transport Planner NE Update Configuration File, the CTC node name and the Cisco Transport Planner site name should be the same (or at least easy to identify).


Step 4 (Optional) In the Contact field, type the name of the node contact person and the phone number, up to 255 characters.

Step 5 (Optional) In the Latitude field, enter the node latitude: N (north) or S (south), degrees, and minutes.

Step 6 (Optional) In the Longitude field, enter the node longitude: E (east) or W (west), degrees, and minutes.


Note The latitude and longitude values only indicate the geographical position of the nodes in the actual network and not the CTC node position.


Step 7 (Optional) In the Description field, type a description of the node. The description can be a maximum of 255 characters.

Step 8 (Optional) Check the Use NTP/SNTP Server check box if you want CTC to use a Network Time Protocol (NTP) or Simple Network Time Protocol (SNTP) server to set the date and time of the node. Using an NTP or SNTP server ensures that all ONS 15454 network nodes use the same date and time reference. The server synchronizes the node’s time after power outages or software upgrades.

a. If you check the Use NTP/SNTP Server check box, complete the following fields:

Use NTP/SNTP Server—Type the IP address of the primary NTP/SNTP server connected to the ONS 15454 or of another ONS 15454/15600/15310-CL/15310-MA as GNE with NTP/SNTP enabled that is connected to the ONS 15454 ENE.

Backup NTP/SNTP Server—Type the IP address of the secondary NTP/SNTP server connected to the ONS 15454 or of another ONS 15454/15600/15310-CL/15310-MA as GNE with NTP/SNTP enabled that is connected to the ONS 15454 ENE.

When the primary NTP/SNTP server fails or is not reachable, the node uses the secondary NTP/SNTP server to synchronize its date and time. If both the primary and secondary NTP/SNTP servers fail or are not reachable, an SNTP-FAIL alarm is raised. The node checks for the availability of the primary or secondary NTP/SNTP server at regular intervals until it can get the time from any one of the NTP/SNTP servers. After the node gets the time from any one server, it synchronizes its date and time with the server’s date and time and the SNTP-FAIL alarm is cleared. For each retry and resynchronization, the node checks the availability of the primary NTP/SNTP server first, followed by the secondary NTP/SNTP server. The node synchronizes its date and time every hour.


Note You will not be able to identify which NTP/SNTP server is being used for synchronization.



Note If you plan to check gateway network element (GNE) for the ONS 15454 SOCKS proxy server (see G56 Provision IP Settings), external ONS 15454 nodes must reference the gateway ONS 15454 for NTP/SNTP timing. For more information about the ONS 15454 gateway settings, refer to Chapter22, “Manage Network Connectivity”



Caution If you reference another ONS 15454 for the NTP/SNTP server, make sure that the second ONS 15454 references an NTP/SNTP server and not the first ONS 15454 (that is, do not create an NTP/SNTP timing loop by having two ONS 15454 nodes reference each other).

b. If you do not check Use SNTP/NTP Server, complete the Date and Time fields. The ONS 15454 will use these fields for alarm dates and times. By default, CTC displays all alarms in the CTC computer time zone for consistency. To change the display to the node time zone, complete the DLP-G118 Display Alarms and Conditions Using Time Zone task.

  • Date—Type the current date in the format m/d/yyyy, for example, September 24, 2002 is 9/24/2002.
  • Time—Type the current time in the format hh:mm:ss, for example, 11:24:58. The ONS 15454 uses a 24-hour clock, so 10:00 PM is entered as 22:00:00.

Step 9 Click the Time Zone field and choose a city within your time zone from the drop-down list. The list displays the 80 World Time Zones from –11 through 0 (GMT) to +14. Continental United States time zones are GMT-05:00 (Eastern), GMT-06:00 (Central), GMT-07:00 (Mountain), and GMT-08:00 (Pacific).

Step 10 Check the Use Daylight Savings Time check box if the time zone that you chose uses Daylight Savings Time.


Note The Insert AIS-V on STS-1 SD-P and SD-P BER field are not used in DWDM networks.


Step 11 Click Apply .

Step 12 In the confirmation dialog box, click Yes .

Step 13 Review the node information. If you need to make corrections, repeat Steps 3 through 12 to enter the corrections. If the information is correct, continue with the G25 Set Battery Power Monitor Thresholds.

NTP-G26 Set Up CTC Network Access

 

Purpose

This procedure provisions network access for a node, including its subnet mask, default router, Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) server, Internet Inter-Orb Protocol (IIOP) listener port, gateway settings, static routes, Open Shortest Path First (OSPF) protocol, Routing Information Protocol (RIP), and designated SOCKS servers.

Step 1 Complete the DLP-G46 Log into CTC task. If you are already logged in, continue with Step 2.

Step 2 Complete the G56 Provision IP Settings to provision the ONS 15454 IP address, subnet mask, default router, DHCP server, IIOP listener port, and SOCKS proxy server settings.


Tip If you cannot log into the node, you can change its IP address, default router, and network mask by using the LCD on the ONS 15454 fan-tray assembly (unless LCD provisioning is suppressed). See the G57 Set the IP Address, Default Router, and Network Mask Using the LCD for instructions. However, you cannot use the LCD to provision any other network settings. In an ONS 15454 M2 shelf assembly, the LCD is on the fan-tray assembly. In an ONS 15454 M6 shelf assembly, the LCD is a separate unit installed above the external connection unit (ECU).



Note When accessing CTC from a machine running Windows XP operating system, CTC may sometimes fail to reconnect to a GNE when the GNE proxies for several ENE nodes (approximately 15 ENE nodes). This can happen when there is a side switch or when the LAN is enabled/disabled. This is due to the Windows XP operating system limiting the number of simultaneous TCP/IP connection attempts. As a workaround, close the existing CTC session and relaunch CTC on the GNE node. You can configure a designated socks server list on the CTC to mitigate the problem.


Step 3 If TCC2P/TCC3/TNC/TNCE/TSC/TSCE cards are installed and you want to turn on the ONS 15454 secure mode, which allows two IP addresses to be provisioned for the node, complete the G264 Enable Node Security Mode. Secure mode is not available if TCC2 cards are installed.

Step 4 If static routes are needed, complete the G58 Create a Static Route. For more information about static routes, refer to Chapter22, “Manage Network Connectivity”

Step 5 If the ONS 15454 is connected to a LAN or WAN that uses OSPF and you want to share routing information between the LAN or WAN and the ONS network, complete the G59 Set Up or Change Open Shortest Path First Protocol.

Step 6 If the ONS 15454 is connected to a LAN or WAN that uses RIP, complete the G60 Set Up or Change Routing Information Protocol.

Step 7 Complete the G439 Provision the Designated SOCKS Servers after the network is provisioned and one or more of the following conditions exist:

    • SOCKS proxy is enabled.
    • The ratio of ENEs to GNEs is greater than eight to one.
    • Most ENEs do not have LAN connectivity.

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


Caution Verify that the IPv4 or IPv6 addresses assigned to the node are unique in the network. Duplicate IP addresses in the same network cause loss of visibility.


Step 1 In node view (single-shelf mode) or multishelf view (multishelf mode), click the Provisioning > Network > General tabs.

Step 2 Complete the following information in the fields listed:

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

Note If TCC2P/TCC3/TNC/TNCE/TSC/TSCE cards are installed, dual IP addressing is available using the secure mode. When secure mode is off (sometimes called repeater mode), the IP address entered in the IP Address field applies to the backplane LAN port (ONS 15454), EMS RJ-45 port or Craft port on the ECU (ONS 15454 M6), EMS RJ-45 port on the power module (ONS 15454 M2), and the TCC2P/TCC3/TNC/TNCE/TSC/TSCE TCP/IP (LAN) port. When secure mode is on, the IP Address field shows the address assigned to the TCC2P/TCC3/TNC/TNCE/TSC/TSCE TCP/IP (LAN) port and the Superuser can enable or disable display of the backplane IP address. See the G264 Enable Node Security Mode as needed. Refer to “Manage Network Connectivity,” for more information about secure mode.


    • Net/Subnet Mask Length—Type the subnet mask length (decimal number representing the subnet mask length in bits) or click the arrows to adjust the subnet mask length. The subnet mask length is the same for all ONS 15454 nodes in the same subnet.
    • MAC Address—(Display only) Displays the ONS 15454 IEEE 802 MAC address.

Note In secure mode, the front and back TCP/IP (LAN) ports are assigned different MAC addresses, and the backplane information can be hidden or revealed by a Superuser.


    • Default Router—If the ONS 15454 is connected to a LAN, enter the IP address of the default router. The default router forwards packets to network devices that the ONS 15454 cannot directly access. This field is ignored if any of the following are true:

The ONS 15454 is not connected to a LAN.

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

OSPF is enabled on both the ONS 15454 and the LAN where the ONS 15454 is connected. (OSPF is provisioned in the G59 Set Up or Change Open Shortest Path First Protocol.)

    • LCD IP Setting—Choose one of the following:

Allow Configuration —Displays the node IP address on the LCD and allows users to change the IP settings using the LCD. This option enables the G57 Set the IP Address, Default Router, and Network Mask Using the LCD.

Display Only —Displays the node IP address on the LCD but does not allow users to change the IP settings using the LCD.

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

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

Note IP address suppression is not applied to users with Superuser security level. However, in secure mode the backplane IP address visibility can be restricted to only a locally connected Superuser viewing the routing table. In this case, the backplane IP address is not revealed to any user at any other NE, either on the routing table or in autonomous messages (such as the TL1 REPT DBCHG message, alarms, and performance monitoring [PM] reporting).


    • IPv6 Configuration—Allows provisioning of IPv6 addresses. After you provision an IPv6 address, you can access the device using the IPv6 address. Configure these settings only if you want to enable IPv6 on the node. IPv6 cannot be configured using the LCD push buttons.

Enable IPv6—Select this check box to assign an IPv6 address to the node. The IPv6 Address, Prefix Length, and IPv6 Default Router fields are enabled only if this check box is selected. The check box is disabled by default.


Note Enable SOCKS Proxy on Port check box is enabled when you enable IPv6 and can be disabled only when IPv6 is disabled.



Note By default, when IPv6 is enabled, the node processes both IPv4 and IPv6 packets on the LAN interface. If you want the node to process only IPv6 packets, you need to disable IPv4 on the node. For more information, see DLP-G317 Change Node Access and PM Clearing Privilege.


IPv6 Address—Enter the IPv6 address that you want to assign to the node. This IP address is the global unicast IPv6 address. This field is disabled if the Enable IPv6 check box is not selected.

Prefix Length—Enter the prefix length of the IPv6 address. This field is disabled if the Enable IPv6 check box is not selected.

IPv6 Default Router—Enter the IPv6 address of the default router of the IPv6 NE. This is optional. This field is disabled if the Enable IPv6 check box is not selected.


Note The ONS 15454 DWDM uses NAT-PT internally to support native IPv6. NAT-PT uses the IPv4 address range 128.0.0.0 to 128.0.1.254 for packet translation. Do not use this address range when you enable IPv6 feature.



Note You can provision IPv6 in secure or nonsecure mode. To enable secure mode, see G264 Enable Node Security Mode.


    • Forward DHCP Request To—Check this check box to enable DHCP. Also, enter the DHCP server IP address in the Request To field. Unchecked is the default. If you will enable any of the gateway settings to implement the ONS 15454 SOCKS proxy server features, do not check this check box.

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


    • Gateway Settings—Provisions the ONS 15454 SOCKS proxy server features. (SOCKS is a standard proxy protocol for IP-based applications.) Do not change these options until you review Scenario 7 “Provisioning the ONS 15454 Proxy Server” in Chapter22, “Manage Network Connectivity” In SOCKS proxy server networks, the ONS 15454 is either an ENE, a GNE, or a proxy-only server. Provisioning must be consistent for each NE type.
    • Enable SOCKS proxy server on port—If checked, the ONS 15454 serves as a proxy for connections between CTC clients and ONS 15454 nodes that are connected by data communications channels (DCCs) to the proxy ONS 15454. The CTC client establishes connections to DCC-connected nodes through the proxy node. The CTC client does not require IP connectivity to the DCC-connected nodes; it only requires IP connectivity to the proxy ONS 15454. If the Enable SOCKS proxy server on port check box is unchecked, the node does not proxy for any CTC clients. When this box is checked, you can provision one of the following options:

External Network Element (ENE) —Choose this option when the ONS 15454 is not connected to a LAN but has DCC connections to other ONS nodes. A CTC computer connected to the ENE through the TCC2/TCC2P/TCC3/TNC/TNCE/TSC/TSCE card TCP/IP (craft) port can manage nodes that have DCC connections to the ENE. However, the CTC computer does not have direct IP connectivity to these nodes or to any LAN or WAN that those nodes might be connected to.

Gateway Network Element (GNE) —Choose this option when the ONS 15454 is connected to a LAN and has DCC connections to other nodes. A CTC computer connected to the LAN can manage all nodes that have DCC connections to the GNE, but the CTC computer does not have direct IP connectivity to them. The GNE option isolates the LAN from the DCC network so that IP traffic originating from the DCC-connected nodes and any CTC computers connected to them is prevented from reaching the LAN.

SOCKS proxy only —Choose this option when the ONS 15454 is connected to a LAN and the LAN is separated from the node by a firewall. The SOCKS proxy only option is the same as the GNE option, except that the SOCKS proxy only option does not isolate the DCC network from the LAN.


Note If a node is provisioned in secure mode, it is automatically provisioned as a GNE with SOCKS proxy enabled. However, this provisioning can be overridden, and the secure node can be changed to an ENE. In secure mode, SOCKS cannot be disabled. For information about provisioning, including GNE and ENE status, see the G264 Enable Node Security Mode.


Step 3 Click Apply .

Step 4 Click Yes in the confirmation dialog box.

The TCC2/TCC2P/TCC3/TNC/TNCE/TSC/TSCE cards reboot one at a time if changes were made to the IP address, subnet mask, or gateway settings. During this time (approximately 5 to 6 minutes), the active and standby TCC2/TCC2P/TCC3/TNC/TNCE/TSC/TSCE card LEDs will blink, turn on, and turn off at different intervals. Eventually, a “Lost node connection, switching to network view” message appears.

Step 5 Click OK . The network view appears. The node icon appears in gray, during which time you cannot access the node.

Step 6 Double-click the node icon when it becomes green.

Step 7 Return to your originating procedure (NTP).


 

DLP-G439 Provision the Designated SOCKS Servers

 

Purpose

This task identifies the ONS 15454 SOCKS servers in SOCKS-proxy-enabled networks. Identifying the SOCKS servers reduces the amount of time required to log into a node and have all NEs appear in network view (NE discovery time). The task is recommended when the combined CTC login and NE discovery time is greater than five minutes in networks with SOCKS proxy enabled. Long (or failed) login and NE discovery times can occur in networks that have a high ENE-to-GNE ratio and a low number of ENEs with LAN connectivity.

Note To complete this task, you must have either the IP addresses or DNS names of all ONS 15454s in the network with LAN access that have SOCKS proxy enabled.



Note SOCKS proxy servers can be any accessible ONS network nodes that have LAN access, including the ONS 15310-MA, ONS 15310-CL, ONS 15454, ONS 15454 SDH, ONS 15600, ONS 15600 SDH, ONS 15454 M6, and ONS 15454 M2 nodes.



Note You must repeat this task any time that changes to SOCKS proxy server nodes occur, for example, whenever LAN connectivity is added to or removed from a node, or when nodes are added or removed from the network.



Note If you cannot log into a network node, complete the DLP-G46 Log into CTC task choosing the Disable Network Discovery option. Complete this task, then login again with network discovery enabled.



Step 1 From the CTC Edit menu, choose Preferences .

Step 2 In the Preferences dialog box, click the SOCKS tab.

Step 3 In the Designated SOCKS Server field, type the IP address or DNS node name of the first ONS 15454 SOCKS server. The ONS 15454 that you enter must have SOCKS proxy server enabled, and it must have LAN access.

Step 4 Click Add . The node is added to the SOCKS server list. If you need to remove a node on the list, click Remove .

Step 5 Repeat Steps 3 and 4 to add all qualified ONS 15454s within the network. Add all ONS nodes that have SOCKS proxy enabled and are connected to the LAN.

Step 6 Click Check All Servers . CTC verifies that all nodes can perform as SOCKS servers. Once verified, a check is placed next to the node IP address or node name in the SOCKS server list. An X placed next to the node indicates one or more of the following:

    • The entry does not correspond to a valid DNS name.
    • The numeric IP address is invalid.
    • The node cannot be reached.
    • The node can be reached, but the SOCKS port cannot be accessed, for example, a firewall problem might exist.

Step 7 Click Apply . The list of ONS 15454 nodes, including ones that received an X in Step 6, are added as SOCKS servers.

Step 8 Click OK to close the Preferences dialog box.

Step 9 Return to your originating procedure (NTP).

Step 9 Press the Slot button to apply the new IP address, subnet mask, or default router configuration or press Port to cancel the configuration.


Note The IP address and default router must be on the same subnet. If not, you cannot apply the configuration.


Step 10 Saving the new configuration causes the TCC2/TCC2P/TCC3/TNC/TNCE/TSC/TSCE cards to reboot. During the reboot, a “TCC may Reset” message appears on the LCD. The LCD returns to the normal alternating display after both TCC2/TCC2P/TCC3/TNC/TNCE/TSC/TSCE cards finish rebooting.

Step 11 Return to your originating procedure (NTP).


 

DLP-G264 Enable Node Security Mode

 

Purpose

This task enables the security mode. When security mode is enabled, two IP addresses are assigned to the node. One address is assigned to the backplane LAN port (ONS 15454) or to the EMS port (ONS 15454 M2 and M6). The other address is assigned to the TCC2P/TCC3/TNC/TNCE/TSC/TSCE RJ-45 TCP/IP (LAN) port. The TCC2 card does not support security mode.

Tools/Equipment

TCC2P/TCC3/TNC/TNCE/TSC/TSCE cards must be installed. Do not install a mix of TCC2 and TCC2P cards.

Caution The IP address assigned to the TCC2P/TCC3/TNC/TNCE/TSC/TSCE TCP/IP (LAN) port must reside on a different subnet from the backplane LAN port (ONS 15454) and the EMS port (ONS 15454 M2 and M6). Verify that the new TCC2P/TCC3/TNC/TNCE/TSC/TSCE IP address meets this requirement.


Note The node will reboot after you complete this task, causing a temporary disconnection between the CTC computer and the node.



Note If an OTS-to-OTS PPC is created between nodes, it will no longer function if the node Security Mode is enabled (see G264 Enable Node Security Mode). The reason for this is that if the Secure mode is enabled, it is no longer possible for the DCN extension feature to use the LAN interface to extend the internal network (due to the network isolation in this configuration mode). The result is that the topology discovery on the OTS-to-OTS PPC no longer operates.



Step 1 Click the Provisioning > Security > Data Comm tabs.


Note The security mode options are not available in CTC if TCC2 cards or a mix of TCC2 and TCC2P cards are installed.


Step 2 Click Change Mode .

Step 3 Review the information on the Change Secure Mode page, then click Next .

Step 4 On the TCC Ethernet Port page, enter the IP address and subnet mask for the TCC2P/TCC3/TNC/TNCE/TSC/TSCE TCP/IP (LAN) port. The IP address cannot reside on the same subnet as the backplane LAN port (ONS 15454) and the EMS port (ONS 15454 M2 and M6).

Step 5 Click Next .

Step 6 If needed, on the Backplane Ethernet Port page, modify the backplane IP address, subnet mask, and default router. (You normally do not modify these fields if no network changes have occurred.)

Step 7 Click Next .

Step 8 On the SOCKS Proxy Server Settings page, choose one of the following options:

    • External Network Element (ENE) —If selected, the CTC computer is only visible to the ONS 15454 where the CTC computer is connected. The CTC computer is not visible to the nodes connected to the DCC. In addition, firewall is enabled, which means that the node prevents IP traffic from being routed between the DCC and the LAN port.
    • Gateway Network Element (GNE) —If selected, the CTC computer is visible to other DCC-connected nodes. The node prevents IP traffic from being routed between the DCC and the LAN port.

Note The SOCKS proxy server is automatically enabled when you enable secure mode.


Step 9 Click Finish .

Within the next 30 to 40 seconds, the TCC2P/TCC3/TNC/TNCE/TSC/TSCE cards reboot. CTC switches to network view, and the CTC Alerts dialog box appears. In network view, the node changes to gray and a DISCONNECTED condition appears in the Alarms tab.

Step 10 In the CTC Alerts dialog box, click Close . Wait for the reboot to finish. (This might take several minutes.)

Step 11 After the DISCONNECTED condition clears, complete the following steps to suppress the backplane IP address from appearing in CTC and the LCD. If you do not want to suppress the backplane IP address display, continue with Step 12.

DLP-G58 Create a Static Route

 

Purpose

This task creates a static route to establish CTC connectivity to a computer on another network. This task is performed when one of the following conditions exists:

  • CTC computers on one subnet need to connect to ONS 15454 nodes that are connected by a router to ONS 15454 nodes residing on another subnet.
  • OSPF is not enabled (the OSPF Active on LAN check box is not checked on the Provisioning > Network > OSPF tab) and the External Network Element (ENE) gateway setting is not checked.
  • You need to enable multiple CTC sessions among ONS 15454 nodes residing on the same subnet and the External Network Element (ENE) gateway setting is not checked.

Step 2 Click the Static Routing tab. Click Create .

Step 3 In the Create Static Route dialog box, enter the following:

    • Destination—Enter the IP address of the computer running CTC. To limit access to one computer, enter the full IP address and a subnet mask of 255.255.255.255. To allow access to all computers on the 192.168.1.0 subnet, enter 192.168.1.0 and a subnet mask of 255.255.255.0. You can enter a destination of 0.0.0.0 to allow access to all CTC computers that connect to the router.
    • Mask—Enter a subnet mask. If the destination is a host route (that is, one CTC computer), enter a 32-bit subnet mask (255.255.255.255). If the destination is a subnet, adjust the subnet mask accordingly, for example, 255.255.255.0. If the destination is 0.0.0.0, CTC automatically enters a subnet mask of 0.0.0.0 to provide access to all CTC computers. You cannot change this value.
    • Next Hop—Enter the IP address of the router port or the node IP address if the CTC computer is connected to the node directly.
    • Cost—Enter the number of hops between the ONS 15454 and the computer.

Required/As Needed

As needed

Onsite/Remote

Onsite or remote

Security Level

Provisioning or higher


Step 1 In node view (single-shelf mode) or multishelf view (multishelf mode), click the Provisioning > Network > OSPF tabs.

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

    • DCC/GCC OSPF Area ID Table—In dotted decimal format, enter the number that identifies the ONS 15454 nodes as a unique OSPF area ID. The Area ID can be any number between 000.000.000.000 and 255.255.255.255, but must be unique to the LAN OSPF area.

ANSI Nodes

    • SDCC Metric—This value is normally unchanged. It sets a cost for sending packets across the Section DCC, which is used by OSPF routers to calculate the shortest path. This value should always be higher than the LAN metric. The default SDCC metric is 100.
    • LDCC Metric—Sets a cost for sending packets across the Line DCC. This value should always be lower than the SDCC metric. The default LDCC metric is 33. It is usually not changed.

ETSI Nodes

    • RS-DCC Metric—This value is normally unchanged. It sets a cost for sending packets across the regenerator section DCC (RS-DCC), which is used by OSPF routers to calculate the shortest path. This value should always be higher than the LAN metric. The default RS-DCC metric is 100.
    • MS-DCC Metric—Sets a cost for sending packets across the multiplex section DCC (MS-DCC). This value should always be lower than the SDCC metric. The default MS-DCC metric is 33. It is usually not changed.

Step 3 In the OSPF on LAN area, complete the following:

    • OSPF active on LAN—When checked, enables the ONS 15454 OSPF topology to be advertised to OSPF routers on the LAN. Enable this field on ONS 15454 nodes that directly connect to OSPF routers.
    • LAN Port Area ID—Enter the OSPF area ID (dotted decimal format) for the router port where the ONS 15454 is connected. (This number is different from the DCC/GCC OSPF Area ID.)

Step 4 By default, OSPF is set to No Authentication. If the OSPF router requires authentication, complete the following steps. If not, continue with Step 5.

a. Click the No Authentication button.

b. In the Edit Authentication Key dialog box, complete the following:

  • Type—Choose Simple Password .
  • Enter Authentication Key—Enter the password.
  • Confirm Authentication Key—Enter the same password to confirm it.

c. Click OK .

The authentication button label changes to Simple Password.

Step 5 Provision the OSPF priority and interval settings. The OSPF priority and interval defaults are the defaults most commonly used by OSPF routers. Verify that these defaults match the ones used by the OSPF router where the ONS 15454 is connected.

    • Router Priority—Provision the router priority, which determines the designated router for a subnet.
    • Hello Interval (sec)—Provision the number of seconds between OSPF hello packet advertisements sent by OSPF routers. Ten seconds is the default.
    • Dead Interval—Provision the number of seconds that will pass while an OSPF router’s packets are not visible before its neighbors declare the router down. Forty seconds is the default.
    • Transit Delay (sec)—Provision the service speed. One second is the default.
    • Retransmit Interval (sec)—Provision the number of seconds that will elapse before a packet is resent. Five seconds is the default.
    • LAN Metric—Provision the cost for sending packets across the LAN. This value should always be lower than the SDCC or RS-DCC metric. Ten is the default.

Step 6 Under OSPF Area Range Table, create an area range table if one is needed:


Note Area range tables consolidate the information that is outside an OSPF area border. One ONS 15454 in the ONS 15454 OSPF area is connected to the OSPF router. An area range table on this node points the router to the other nodes that reside within the ONS 15454 OSPF area.


a. Click Create .

b. In the Create Area Range dialog box, enter the following:

  • Range Address—Enter the area IP address for the ONS 15454 nodes that reside within the OSPF area. For example, if the ONS 15454 OSPF area includes nodes with IP addresses 10.10.20.100, 10.10.30.150, 10.10.40.200, and 10.10.50.250, the range address would be 10.10.0.0.
  • Range Area ID—Enter the OSPF area ID for the ONS 15454 nodes. This is either the ID in the DCC OSPF Area ID field or the ID in the Area ID for LAN Port field.
  • Mask Length—Enter the subnet mask length. In the Range Address example, this is 16.
  • Advertise—Check this box if you want to advertise the OSPF range table.

c. Click OK .

Step 7 All OSPF areas must be connected to Area 0. If the ONS 15454 OSPF area is not physically connected to Area 0, use the following steps to create a virtual link table that will provide the disconnected area with a logical path to Area 0:

a. Under the OSPF Virtual Link Table, click Create .

b. In the Create Virtual Link dialog box, complete the following fields. OSPF settings must match OSPF settings for the ONS 15454 OSPF area:

  • Neighbor—Enter the router ID of the Area 0 router.
  • Transit Delay (sec)—Enter the service speed. One second is the default.
  • Hello Int (sec)—Provision the number of seconds between OSPF hello packet advertisements sent by OSPF routers. Ten seconds is the default.
  • Auth Type—If the router where the ONS 15454 is connected uses authentication, choose Simple Password . Otherwise, choose No Authentication .
  • Retransmit Int (sec)—Provision the time that will elapse, in seconds, before a packet is resent. Five seconds is the default.
  • Dead Int (sec)—Provision the number of seconds that will pass while an OSPF router’s packets are not visible before its neighbors declare the router down. Forty seconds is the default.

c. Click OK .

Step 8 After entering the ONS 15454 OSPF area data, click Apply .

If you changed the Area ID, the TCC2/TCC2P/TCC3/TNC/TNCE/TSC/TSCE cards reset, one at a time. The reset takes approximately 10 to 15 minutes.

Caution Do not complete this task until you confirm the role of the node within the network. It will be either an End System , Intermediate System Lev el 1, or IS Leve l 1/Level 2. This decision must be carefully considered. For additional information about OSI provisioning, refer to Chapter22, “Manage Network Connectivity”


Caution Link State Pr otocol (L SP) buffers must be the same at all NEs within the network, or loss of visibility might occur. Do not modify the LSP buffers unless you confirm that all NEs within the OSI have the same buffer size.


Caution LSP buffer sizes cannot be greater than the LAP- D maximum transmission unit (MT U) size within the OSI area.


Note For ONS 15454 nodes, three virtual routers can be provisioned. The node primary Network Service Access Point (NSAP) address is also the Router 1 primary manual area address. To edit the primary NSAP, you must edit the Router 1 primary manual area address. After you enable Router 1 on the Routers subtab, the Change Primary Area Address button is available to edit the address.



Step 1 In node view (single-shelf mode) or multishelf view (multishelf mode), click the Provisioning > OSI tabs.

Step 2 Choose a routing mode:

  • End System —The ONS 15454 performs OSI end system (ES) functions and relies upon an intermediate system (IS) for communication with nodes that reside within its OSI area.

Note The End System routing mode is not available if more than one virtual router is enabled.


  • I ntermediate System Level 1 —The ONS 15454 performs OSI IS functions. It communicates with IS and ES nodes that reside within its OSI area. It depends upon an IS L1/L2 node to communicate with IS and ES nodes that reside outside its OSI area.
  • Intermediate System Level 1/Level 2 —The ONS 15454 performs IS functions. It communicates with IS and ES nodes that reside within its OSI area. It also communicates with IS L1/L2 nodes that reside in other OSI areas. Before choosing this option, verify the following:

The node is connected to another IS Level 1/Level 2 node that resides in a different OSI area.

The node is connected to all nodes within its area that are provisioned as IS L1/L2.

Step 3 If needed, change the LSP data buffers:

  • L1 LSP Buffer Size—Adjusts the Level 1 link state protocol data unit (PDU) buffer size. The default is 512. It should not be changed.
  • L2 LSP Buffer Size—Adjusts the Level 2 link state PDU buffer size. The default is 512. It should not be changed.

Step 1 In node view (single-shelf mode) or multishelf view (multishelf mode), click the Provisioning > OSI > TARP > Config tabs.

Step 2 Provision the following parameters, as needed:

    • TARP PDUs L1 Propagation—If checked (default), TARP Type 1 PDUs that are received by the node and are not excluded by the LDB are propagated to other NEs within the Level 1 OSI area. (Type 1 PDUs request a protocol address that matches a target identifier [TID] within a Level 1 routing area.) The propagation does not occur if the NE is the target of the Type 1 PDU, and PDUs are not propagated to the NE from which the PDU was received.

Note The TARP PDUs L1 Propagation parameter is not used when the Node Routing Area (on the Provisioning > OSI > Main Setup tab) is set to End System.


    • TARP PDUs L2 Propagation—If checked (default), TARP Type 2 PDUs that are received by the node and are not excluded by the LDB are propagated to other NEs within the Level 2 OSI areas. (Type 2 PDUs request a protocol address that matches a TID within a Level 2 routing area.) The propagation occurs if the NE is not the target of the Type 2 PDU, and PDUs are not propagated to the NE from which the PDU was received.

Note The TARP PDUs L2 Propagation parameter is only used when the Node Routing Area is provisioned to Intermediate System Level 1/Level 2.


    • TARP PDUs Origination—If checked (default), the node performs all TARP origination functions including:

TID-to-NSAP resolution requests (originate TARP Type 1 and Type 2 PDUs)

NSAP-to-TID requests (originate Type 5 PDUs)

TARP address changes (originate Type 4 PDUs)


Note TARP Echo and NSAP to TID are not supported.


    • TARP Data Cache—If checked (default), the node maintains a TARP data cache (TDC). The TDC is a database of TID-to-NSAP pairs created from TARP Type 3 PDUs received by the node and modified by TARP Type 4 PDUs (TID-to-NSAP updates or corrections). TARP 3 PDUs are responses to Type 1 and Type 2 PDUs. The TDC can also be populated with static entries entered on the TARP > Static TDC tab.

Note TARP Data Cache is only used when the TARP PDUs Origination parameter is enabled.


    • L2 TARP Data Cache—If checked (default), the TIDs and NSAPs of NEs originating Type 2 requests are added to the TDC before the node propagates the requests to other NEs.

Note The L2 TARP Data Cache parameter is designed for Intermediate System Level 1/Level 2 nodes that are connected to other Intermediate System Level 1/Level 2 nodes. Enabling the parameter for Intermediate System Level 1 nodes is not recommended.


    • LDB—If checked (default), enables the TARP loop detection buffer. The LDB prevents TARP PDUs from being sent more than once on the same subnet.

Note The LDB parameter is not used if the Node Routing Mode is provisioned to End System or if the TARP PDUs L1 Propagation parameter is not enabled.


    • LAN TARP Storm Suppression—If checked (default), enables TARP storm suppression. This function prevents redundant TARP PDUs from being unnecessarily propagated across the LAN network.
    • Send Type 4 PDU on Startup—If checked, a TARP Type 4 PDU is originated during the initial ONS 15454 startup. Type 4 PDUs indicate that a TID or NSAP change has occurred at the NE. (The default setting is not enabled.)
    • Type 4 PDU Delay—Sets the amount of time that will pass before the Type 4 PDU is generated when Send Type 4 PDU on Startup is enabled. 60 seconds is the default. The range is 0 to 255 seconds.

Note The Send Type 4 PDU on Startup and Type 4 PDU Delay parameters are not used if TARP PDUs Origination is not enabled.


    • LDB Entry—Sets the TARP loop detection buffer timer. The loop detection buffer time is assigned to each LDB entry for which the TARP sequence number (tar-seq) is zero. The default is 5 minutes. The range is 1 to 10 minutes.
    • LDB Flush—Sets the frequency period for flushing the LDB. The default is 5 minutes. The range is 0 to 1440 minutes.
    • T1—Sets the amount of time to wait for a response to a Type 1 PDU. Type 1 PDUs seek a specific NE TID within an OSI Level 1 area. The default is 15 seconds. The range is 0 to 3600 seconds.

Caution IP-over-CLNS tunnels require two endpoints. You will create one point on an ONS 15454. The other endpoint is generally provisioned on non-ONS equipment including routers and other vendor NEs. Before you begin, verify that you have the capability to create an OSI-over-CLNS tunnel on the other equipment location.


Step 1 Click the Provisioning > OSI > Tunnels tabs.

Step 2 Click Create .

Step 3 In the Create IP Over CLNS Tunnel dialog box, complete the following fields:

    • Tunnel Type—Choose a tunnel type:

Cisco —Creates the proprietary Cisco IP tunnel. Cisco IP tunnels add the CLNS header to the IP packets.

GRE —Creates a generic routing encapsulation (GRE) tunnel. GRE tunnels add the CLNS header and a GRE header to the IP packets.

The Cisco proprietary tunnel is slightly more efficient than the GRE tunnel because it does not add the GRE header to each IP packet. The two tunnel types are not compatible. Most Cisco routers support the Cisco IP tunnel, while only a few support both GRE and Cisco IP tunnels. You generally should create Cisco IP tunnels if you are tunneling between two Cisco routers or between a Cisco router and an ONS node.


Caution Always verify that the IP-over-CLNS tunnel type that you choose is supported by the equipment at the other end of the tunnel.

    • IP Address—Enter the IP address of the IP-over-CLNS tunnel destination.
    • IP Mask—Enter the IP address subnet mask of the IP-over-CLNS destination.
    • OSPF Metric—Enter the OSPF metric for sending packets across the IP-over-CLNS tunnel. The OSPF metric, or cost, is used by OSPF routers to calculate the shortest path. The default is 110. Normally, it is not be changed unless you are creating multiple tunnel routes and want to prioritize routing by assigning different metrics.
    • NSAP Address—Enter the destination NE or OSI router NSAP address.

Step 4 Click OK .

Step 5 Provision the other tunnel endpoint using the documentation provided by the manufacturer of the third party vendor NE.

Step 1 Complete the DLP-G46 Log into CTC task at the node where you want to set up SNMP. If you are already logged in, continue with Step 2.

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

Step 3 In the Trap Destinations area, click Create .

Step 4 Complete the following in the Create SNMP Trap Destination dialog box (Figure 14-7):

    • Destination IP Address—Type the IP address of your network management system (NMS). If the node you are logged into is an ENE, set the destination address to the GNE.

Note In ONS 15454 Software Release 9.1 and later, you can configure IPv6 addresses for SNMPv2/v3 trap destinations and SNMPv3 proxy targets, in addition to IPv4 addresses.


    • Community—Type the SNMP community name. For a description of SNMP community names, refer to the SNMP document.

Note The community name is a form of authentication and access control. The community name assigned to the ONS 15454 is case-sensitive and must match the community name of the NMS.


    • UDP Port—The default User Datagram Protocol (UDP) port for SNMP is 162.
    • Trap version—Choose either SNMPv1 or SNMPv2. Refer to your NMS documentation to determine which version to use.

Figure 14-7 Creating an SNMP Trap

 

Step 5 Click OK . The node IP address of the node where you provisioned the new trap destination appears in the Trap Destinations area.

Step 6 Click the node IP address in the Trap Destinations area. Verify the SNMP information that appears in the Selected Destination list.

Step 7 If you want the SNMP agent to accept SNMP SET requests on certain MIBs, click the Allow SNMP Sets check box. If this box is not checked, SET requests are rejected.

Step 8 If you want to set up the SNMP proxy feature to allow network management, message reporting, and performance statistic retrieval across ONS firewalls, click the Allow SNMP Proxy check box located on the SNMP tab.


Note The Use Generic MIB check box is normally not checked for MSTP. It is checked only when the ONS 15454 resides in networks with multiple ONS products, and the network management system requires MIBs with the same name to have the same object IDs. By default, the ONS 15454 uses the CERENT-454-MIBs. Other ONS products, such as the ONS 15600, the ONS 15327, and ONS 15310-CL, use the CERENT-GENERIC-MIBs. If Use Generic MIB is checked, the ONS 15454 will use the CERENT-GENERIC-MIBs so the object IDs will be the same for all products.



Note Using the ONS firewall proxy feature effectively breaches the ONS firewall to exchange management information.


For more information about the SNMP proxy feature, refer to SNMP .

Step 9 Click Apply.

Step 10 If you are setting up SNMP proxies, you can set up to three relays that send SNMP trap error counts back to the NE for each trap destination address:

a. Click the first trap destination IP address. The address and its community name appear in the Destination fields.

b. Enter up to three SNMP Proxy relay addresses and community names in the fields for Relay A, Relay B, and Relay C.


Note The community names specified for each relay node must match one of the provisioned SNMP community names in the NE.



Note The SNMP proxy directs SNMP traps from this node through Relay A to Relay B to Relay C to the trap destination. Ensure that you enter the IP addresses in the correct order so that this sequence runs correctly.


Step 11 Click Apply.

Stop . You have completed this procedure .


 

NTP-G143 Import the Cisco Transport Planner NE Update Configuration File

 

Purpose

This procedure imports the Cisco Transport Planner NE Update configuration file and creates a log file. The configuration file, which is provided in XML format, provisions internal patchcords, optical sides and card parameters for optical units, transponders, and passive units (DCUs and patch panels). Finally, the NE Update file installs the ANS parameters calculated by Cisco Transport Planner. The log file, which is a text document records the results of the NE update.

Tools/Equipment

A Cisco Transport Planner NE Update file for the network where the node is installed must be accessible to the CTC computer.

Caution Verify that you have the correct Cisco Transport Planner network file before you begin this procedure. The file will have an XML extension and a name assigned by your network planner. Check with your network planner or administrator if you have any questions.


Note The Cisco Transport Planner configuration file contains parameters for the node, shelf, card type, port (including the card’s wavelength), pluggable port module (PPM), as well as OTN and FEC parameters. Only the values present in XML format appear in the configuration file parameters; if the values are not in XML format, a column appears blank. The XML file values are independently reported and do not affect any configuration changes that you apply.



Step 1 Complete the DLP-G46 Log into CTC task at the node where you want to import the Cisco Transport Planner configuration file. If you are already logged in, continue with Step 2.

Step 2 If you choose the Provision Node Layout option to preprovision the cards in the shelf, complete the following steps. If not, continue with Step 3.

a. Display the node in node view (single-shelf mode) or multishelf view (multishelf mode).

b. Verify that the common control cards (TCC2/TCC2P/TCC3/TNC/TNCE/TSC/TSCE, AIC-I and MSC-ISC) cards are the only cards installed. If in single or multishelf mode, verify that each shelf in the multishelf has two TCC2/TCC2P/TCC3/TNC/TNCE/TSC/TSCE cards.

  • If common control cards are the only cards installed, continue with Step 3.
  • If other cards appear, continue with Step c .

c. If a physical card other than the common control cards is installed, remove it from the shelf.

d. If preprovisioned DWDM cards are present, delete them using the G351 Delete a Card in CTC, then repeat Steps a and b .

Step 3 If you have not created a log file to record the results of the NE update, complete the following steps. If a log file has been created, continue with Step 4.

a. Open a text editor or word processing application.

b. Create a new text (TXT) document with a file name of your choosing.

c. Save the text document in a directory that is easy to navigate to from CTC.

Step 4 In CTC node view (single-shelf mode) or multishelf view, click the Provisioning > WDM-ANS > Node Setup tabs.

Step 5 Choose Load latest installation file from node to reload the latest XML file that was applied and stored in the node. Continue with Step 8.

Step 6 Choose Load installation file from network repository and navigate to the Cisco Transport Planner node setup file containing the parameters for the network where the node resides. This option downloads the XML file from the remote server. Continue with Step 8.

Step 7 In the field under Select XML file, type the path to the Cisco Transport Planner node setup file containing the parameters for the network where your node resides, or click Browse and navigate to the file on your computer. Click the file, then click Open. The file will have an XML extension. Continue with Step 8.

Step 8 In the field under Select Log file, type the path to the text file that you created in Step 3, or click Browse and navigate to the file on your computer or a network server where you want the node setup results recorded.


Note The log file records the parameters that were updated successfully and provides an explanation of why an update could not be completed. Each node setup session overwrites the log file contents. If you want to save the results from a previous NE update, save the log file with new name.


Step 9 Click Apply .

Step 10 When Load installation file from network repository option is chosen, the FTP Remote Installation File Node-Name page appears.

a. When the node is configured as a Gateway Network Element (GNE) node, enter the parameters (host name, port, user name, password, remote directory, and XML file name of the remote server) and click Next.

b. When the node is configured as a Elementary Network Element (ENE) node, an additional parameter called GNE Selector appear. From the GNE Selector drop-down list, select the appropriate GNE in the network. The FTP relay must be configured on the selected GNE to the remote server where the XML file is stored. See G28 Create FTP Host to configure the FTP relay on the selected GNE.

Step 11 When the Node Setup Selection for Node-Name page appears, complete the following steps. If not, continue with Step 12.

a. Choose the node profile that you want to apply to the node. The Cisco Transport Planner XML file contains profiles for all nodes in the network. Choose the profile that applies to the node you are provisioning.

b. Click Next .

Step 12 On the Node Setup for node name page, choose one or more of the following:

    • Node Layout—Preprovisions the slots in each shelf in CTC for the cards defined in the network plan. Choose this option when no DWDM cards are installed. (Errors will occur if cards are installed or the slots are preprovisioned.) Preprovisioning the slots before the physical cards are installed ensures that card installers place the cards in the correct slots. Preprovisioning the slots is also useful if you want to set up the network prior to card installation. The node layout also preprovisions the chassis and passive units.
    • Card Parameters—If checked, provisions the following parameters, if the cards are installed.

TXP, MXP, GE_XP, 10GE_XP, GE_XPE, 10GE_XPE, ADM-10G, and OTU2_XP cards—Provisions the OTN and FEC parameters.

OPT-AMP-L, OPT-AMP-17-C, OPT-AMP-C, OPT-EDFA-17, OPT-EDFA-24, GE_XP, 10GE_XP, GE_XPE, and 10GE_XPE cards—Provisions the card mode.

    • Pluggable Port Modules— If checked, allows the provisioning of PPMs on TXP, MXP, GE_XP, 10GE_XP, GE_XPE, 10GE_XPE, ADM-10G, and OTU2_XP cards, including PPM payloads.
    • Internal Patchcords—If checked, allows creation of internal patchcords among cards provisioned in the node.
    • Optical Sides—If checked, allows the provisioning of optical sides.
    • ANS Parameters—If checked, installs the ANS parameters. ANS parameters provision the values required for the node to function within the specified network design. ANS parameters include span losses, optical power, optics thresholds, amplifier working mode, gain, tilt, and many others. Refer to Chapter 12, “Node Reference” for a list of ONS 15454 ANS parameters.

Note If you are importing the Cisco Transport Planner configuration file for the first time, you normally choose all available options.


    • Skip Interactive Mode—If checked, CTC provisions all the chosen setup components automatically without allowing you to view the results after each one.
    • Save Installation Files (XML and log) On Node—If checked, CTC saves the XML and log files on the node.

Step 13 Click Next. If you chose Skip Interactive Mode, continue with Step 14. If not, the wizard page that appears depends on the options chosen in Step 12: Complete the steps shown in Table 14-2 for each option.

Before you work on any equipment, be aware of the hazards involved with electrical circuitry and be familiar with standard practices for preventing accidents. To see translations of the warnings that appear in this publication, refer to the Regulatory Compliance and Safety Information document for the appropriate Cisco chassis. Statement 274



Warning During this procedure, wear grounding wrist straps to avoid ESD damage to the card. Do not directly touch the backplane with your hand or any metal tool, or you could shock yourself. Statement 94



Warning Class I (CDRH) and Class 1M (IEC) laser products. Statement 1055



Warning Invisible laser radiation may be emitted from the end of the unterminated fiber cable or connector. Do not view 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 may pose an eye hazard. Statement 1056



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



Caution Always use the supplied electrostatic discharge (ESD) wristband when working with a powered ONS 15454. For detailed instructions on how to wear the ESD wristband, refer to the Electrostatic Discharge and Grounding Guide for Cisco CPT and Cisco ONS Platforms.


Note For United States installations, complies with the United States Federal Drug Administration Code of Federal Regulations Title 21, Sections 1040.10 and 1040.11, except for deviations pursuant to Laser Notice No. 50, dated July 26, 2001.



Note If protective clips are installed on the backplane connectors of the cards, remove the clips before installing the cards.



Note If you install a card incorrectly, the FAIL LED flashes continuously.



Step 1 If the node requires a custom NE default settings to be installed on the node, complete the G136 Import Network Element Defaults. If not, continue with Step 2. (For information about the ONS 15454 NE defaults, refer to Appendix H, “Network Element Defaults.” )


Caution If custom NE defaults are required, they must be installed before you install the DWDM cards.

Step 2 Verify that you have one of the following guides for the DWDM card installation:

Step 3 If the slots are preprovisioned, continue with Step 4. If you are using the Cisco Transport Planner shelf layout report, complete the G348 Use the Cisco Transport Planner Shelf Layout Report.

Step 4 Remove a DWDM card from its packaging, then remove the protective caps from the backplane connectors. (Safety caps are typically yellow.)

Step 5 Open the card latches/ejectors.

Step 6 Use the latches/ejectors to firmly slide the card along the slot guide rails until the card plugs into the receptacle at the back of the slot. The correct slot is designated by the Cisco Transport Planner shelf layout.

Step 7 Verify that the card is inserted correctly. Simultaneously close the latches/ejectors on the card.


Note It is possible to close the latches/ejectors when the card is not completely plugged in. Ensure that you cannot insert the card any further.


After installing the card, the following LED activity will occur:

    • The card’s LEDs will go through a sequence of activities (turn on, turn off, blinking.) This will take 2 to 3 minutes.
    • The ACT LED turns on.
    • The signal fail (SF) LED might persist until all card ports connect to their far-end counterparts and a signal is present.

Step 8 If the card does not boot up properly, or the LED activity is not similar to the activity in Step 7, check the following:

    • When a physical card type does not match the type of card provisioned for that slot in CTC, the card might not boot. If a DWDM card does not boot, open CTC and ensure that the slot is not provisioned for a different card type before assuming that the card is faulty.
    • If the red FAIL LED does not turn on, check the power.
    • If you insert a card into a slot provisioned for a different card, all LEDs turn off and a minor equipment mismatch alarm appears on the CTC Alarms tab.
    • If the red FAIL LED is on continuously or the LEDs behave erratically, the card is not installed.

If any of conditions are present, remove the card and repeat Steps 4 to 7 . If the card does not boot up properly the second time, it might be defective. Contact your next level of support.

Step 9 Repeat Steps 5 through 8 until all the DWDM cards are installed in the node.

Step 10 If an OPT-PRE card (or OPT-AMP-L, OPT-AMP-17-C, OPT-AMP-C, OPT-EDFA-17, or OPT-EDFA-24 card in OPT-PRE card mode) is installed, complete one of the following steps for each OPT-PRE card based on the Cisco Transport Planner shelf layout. If an OPT-PRE is not installed, you have completed this procedure.

    • If the Cisco Transport Planner shelf layout does not include DCUs, install a patchcord and 4-dB attenuator with a tolerance of +/–1 dB between the OPT-PRE or OPT-AMP-L DC TX and RX ports for each OPT-PRE or OPT-AMP-L card installed in the shelf.
    • If the shelf layout includes DCUs, complete the G31 Install the DWDM Dispersion Compensating Units for each side of the shelf that requires a DCU.

Stop. You have completed this procedure.

    • When a physical card type does not match the type of card provisioned for that slot in CTC, the card might not boot and CTC will show a MEA (EQPT) alarm. If the card does not boot, open CTC and ensure that the slot is not provisioned for a different card type before assuming that the card is faulty.
    • If the red FAIL LED does not turn on, check the power.
    • If you insert a card into a slot provisioned for a different card, all LEDs turn off.
    • If the red FAIL LED is on continuously or the LEDs behave erratically, the card is not installed properly.

If any of these conditions are present, remove the card and repeat Steps 3 to 5 . If the card does not boot up properly the second time, contact your next level of support.

Step 7 If the card requires a Small Form-factor Pluggable (SFP or XFP) connector, complete one of the following tasks:

    • G63 Install an SFP or XFP—Complete this task to install the physical SFP or XFP into the TXP, MXP, GE_XP, 10GE_XP, GE_XPE, 10GE_XPE, ADM-10G, or OTU2_XP card.
    • G273 Preprovision an SFP or XFP Slot—(Optional) Complete this task if you do not have the physical SFP or XFP and need to preprovision the SFP or XFP slot.

Note SFPs/XFPs are hot-swappable input/output devices that plug into a TXP, MXP, GE_XP, 10GE_XP, GE_XPE, 10GE_XPE, ADM-10G, OTU2_XP, or line card port to link the port with the fiber-optic network. For more information, refer to the Hardware Specifications and the Installing GBIC, SFP, SFP+, and XFP Optics Modules in ONS Platforms documents.



Note PPM provisioning determines how the SFPs and XFPs are used in CTC. PPM provisioning procedures are provided in Chapter11, “Provision Transponder and Muxponder Cards”


Step 8 If you need to remove an SFP or XFP, complete the G64 Remove an SFP or XFP.


Note You will provision the TXP, MXP, GE_XP, 10GE_XP, GE_XPE, 10GE_XPE, ADM-10G, or OTU2_XP cards after you complete all node turn-up procedures. TXP and MXP provisioning procedures are provided in Chapter11, “Provision Transponder and Muxponder Cards”



Note Until a card is provisioned, the card is in the standby condition and the ACT/STBY LED remains amber in color.


Stop. You have completed this procedure.

Warning The intrabuilding ports of the ONS 15454 are suitable for connection to intrabuilding or unexposed wiring or cabling only. The intrabuilding ports of the ONS 15454 must not be metallically connected to interfaces that connect to the OSP or its wiring. These interfaces are designed for use as intrabuilding interfaces only (Type 2 or Type 4 ports as described in GR-1089-CORE, Issue 4), and require isolation from the exposed OSP cabling. The addition of Primary Protectors is not sufficient protection while connecting these interfaces metallically to the OSP wiring.



Warning The intrabuilding ports of the ONS 15454 are suitable for connection only to shielded intrabuilding cabling, grounded at both ends.



Note In case of a full C-band tunable XFP, it is mandatory to use optical cables that are fully compliant with NEBS Telcordia GR-326-CORE, Issue 3 recommendation. The Cisco patchcord indicated by the Cisco Transport Planner (CTP) tool is fully compliant with NEBS Telcordia GR-326-CORE, Issue 3 recommendation.



Note The CC-FTA fan tray assembly must be installed in a shelf where CWDM and DWDM SFPs or XFPs are used.



Note SFPs and XFPs are hot-swappable input/output devices that plug into a TXP, MXP, GE_XP, 10GE_XP, GE_XPE, 10GE_XPE, ADM-10G, or OTU2_XP port to link the port with the fiber-optic network. For more information, refer to the Hardware Specifications and the Installing GBIC, SFP, SFP+, and XFP Optics Modules in ONS Platforms documents.



Note If you have installed a fan tray lower than CC-FTA on the MSTP unit, you must have the TXP_MR_10E transponder card (only if you have installed ONS-XC-10G-L2 XFP on the TXP_MR_10E card) installed in Slot 5, 6, 12, or 13. This limitation does not exist for fan-tray versions higher than CC-FTA.



Note SFPs and XFPs are generically called PPMs in CTC. After installing multirate SFPs or XFPs, multirate PPMs must be provisioned in CTC. To complete the provisioning of the pluggable port, complete the G277 Provision a Multirate PPM.



Step 1 Verify that the SFP or XFP is correct for your network and TXP, MXP, GE_XP, 10GE_XP, GE_XPE, 10GE_XPE, ADM-10G, or OTU2_XP card (see Chapter 11, “Provision Transponder and Muxponder Cards” for card and SFP/XFP compatibility information). Check that you are installing compatible SFPs or XFPs, for example, SX to SX or LX/LH to LX/LH.

Step 2 Install the SFP or XFP:

    • For a mylar tab SFP or XFP: Slide the SFP or XFP into the slot.
    • For an actuator/button SFP or XFP: Slide the SFP or XFP all the way into the slot until you hear a click.
    • For a bail clasp SFP or XFP: Latch (flip upwards) the bail clasp before inserting the SFP or XFP into the slot and then slide it into the slot.

Warning Class I (CDRH) and Class 1M (IEC) laser products. Statement 1055



Caution To comply with the Telcordia GR-1089 NEBS, Issue 5 standard, do not use optical fibers with exposed metallic ferrules. Exposed metallic ferrules may result in ESD damage to the system and can be service affecting.


Note For US installations, complies with the US Federal Drug Administration Code of Federal Regulations Title 21, Sections 1040.10 and 1040.11, except for deviations pursuant to Laser Notice No. 50, dated July 26, 2001.



Note In this procedure, you will generally connect fibers in an Side B-to-Side A or Side B-to-Side B pattern only. “Side A” refers to cards and ports in Slots 1 through 8. “Side B” refers to cards and ports installed in Slots 10 through 17.



Note You will install fiber-optic cables on TXP, MXP, GE_XP, 10GE_XP, GE_XPE, 10GE_XPE, ADM-10G, and OTU2_XP cards later in the chapter during the G140 Install Fiber-Optic Cables Between Terminal, Hub, or ROADM Nodes.



Step 1 Refer to the G349 Use the Cisco Transport Planner Internal Connections Report to install cables to the DWDM cards.

Step 2 Verify that the appropriate fiber optic cables are available to complete the connections shown in the Cisco Transport Planner Internal Connections report:

a. Count the number of connections listed in the Internal Connections and verify that you have the same number of cables.

b. Measure the distance between Origination Position and Destination Position for each connection, then verify that the fiber lengths will fit each one.

Step 3 Complete the for all fiber connections, even new fiber. Dust particles can degrade performance. Put caps on any fiber connectors that are not used.

Step 4 On the front of the fiber-storage tray (usually installed below the node you are fibering), push the tabs on the left and right sides inward to release the lock on the tray.

Step 5 Pull the fiber-storage tray away from the shelf until it is fully opened.

Step 6 Open the fold-down door that at the bottom of the shelf assembly to expose the cable-routing channel (Figure 14-8).

Step 7 Using the Cisco Transport Planner Internal Connections Report, connect one end of the fiber cable plug into the Origination Position.

Step 8 Route the fiber cable on the card faceplate through the fiber clip on the faceplate, if provided. (Fiber clips are factory-attached to the faceplates of 32MUX-O, 32DMX, 32DMX-O, OSCM, OSC-CSM, OPT-PRE, OPT-BST, OPT-BST-E, OPT-BST-L, OPT-AMP-L, OPT-AMP-17-C, OPT-AMP-C, OPT-RAMP-C, OPT-RAMP-CE, OPT-EDFA-17, and OPT-EDFA-24 cards.)

Step 9 Route the fiber cable through the cable-routing channel and cutout on the appropriate side of the shelf assembly, as necessary.

Step 10 As needed, route slack fiber-optic cable around the round cable retainers in the fiber-storage tray (Figure 14-9).

Figure 14-9 Fiber-Storage Tray

 


Caution When you close the fiber-storage tray, the cables must not be pinched, and the cable bend radius must be equal to or greater than the minimum radius that is recommended in your site specifications. As you route each cable through the fiber-storage tray, make sure that adequate cable slack remains.

Step 11 Route the fiber cable out either side of the fiber-storage tray as necessary.

Step 12 Plug the other end of the cable into the Destination position.


Note Cards display an SF LED after the OSC terminations are created (see the G38 Provision OSC Terminations) if transmit and receive fibers are not connected correctly. For example, an RX port is connected to another RX port or a TX port is connected to another TX port.


Step 13 Repeat Steps 4 through 12 until you have connected the intra-shelf fibers according to the Cisco Transport Planner Internal Connections report.

Step 14 To close the fiber-storage tray, push the tray back toward the rack until it locks into place.

Step 1 Display the Cisco Transport Planner Internal Connections report for the node that you are provisioning. The Internal Connections report is presented in two views, a patchcord installation view and a software provisioning view. The Patchcord installation view lists all the patchcord connections that the installer has to mechanically cable within the site between the different ports of the DWDM cards. The SW Provisioning view contains all the connections to be manually set or removed via CTC with respect to the default connections that are automatically generated by the system software running on the node.

The tables identify the patchcords that you must cable by their endpoints. Starting from the left side of report, Position identifies the fiber origination point. The location shown in the next Position to right is the destination point for the fiber connection. The patchcord endpoints are identified by site, assembly shelf, slot, and port number. Information provided by the Internal Connections Software report includes:

  • Name—Displays the name of the site. On the SW provisioning view, this column indicates whether the connection was automatically set, or should be manually set or removed via CTC.
    • Position—The cable origination in the format is Rack.Shelf.Slot. For example, Rack#1.Shelf Assembly 1.Slot 2 refers to Slot 2 in shelf assembly 1(DWDM) shelf of Rack 1. Refer to the Cisco Transport Planner Site Dialog box for rack and shelf names and locations.
    • Unit—The ONS 15454 DWDM card (unit) that is installed in the Position’s slot. This is where the patchcord originates.
    • Port Number—The port number where the patchcord connection originates.
    • Port ID—(Software provisioning view only) The port identifier shown in TL1 for the Position-1 connection.
    • Port Label—The name of the physical port printed on the DWDM card’s front panel and shown in CTC card view.
    • Attenuator—If attenuation is required, the product ID (PID) of the bulk fixed attenuator is shown. “Att-Lpbk-4dB” indicates that the DC TX and DC RX ports on an OPT-PRE (or OPT-AMP-L, OPT-AMP-17-C, or OPT-AMP-C card provisioned in OPT-PRE card mode) card are to be connected with an attenuated loopback that is shipped with the OPT-PRE card. This parameter also indicates when an internal attenuator must be placed between the OPT-PRE DC-TX and DC-RX ports on the when a DCU is equipped.

Note If the Attenuator field is blank, no attenuation is needed.


    • Position—The cable termination in the format is Rack.Shelf.Slot.
    • Unit—The ONS 15454 DWDM card that is installed in the Position’s slot. This is where the cabling terminates.
    • Port—The port number where the patchcord connection terminates.
    • Port ID—(Software provisioning view only) The port identifier shown in TL1 for the Position-2 connection.
    • Port Label—The name of the physical port printed on the DWDM card’s front panel and shown in CTC card view.
    • P/F—Indicates whether you must create the connection manually in CTC. A Yes appearing in this column means that you must create the connection manually.

Caution Failure to create the required manual connections will prevent the node from turning up properly

Step 2 Return to your originating procedure (NTP).

In this case, the Internal Patchcord Creation wizard will prompt you to create patchcords between the working and protect ports on the PSM card and the ports on the two different add/drop stage cards (which includes 32MUX, 40-MUX-C, 32WSS, 40-WSS-C/40-WSS-CE, 32DMX, 32DMX-O, 40DMX, 40-SMR1-C, 40-SMR2-C, or 80-WXC-C cards). If you choose this option, complete G547 Create an Internal Patchcord Manually Using the OCH-Trunk to OCH-Filter Option.


Note Manual creation of OTS/OCH to OTS/OCH internal patchcords is not required for standard DWDM nodes. However, manual creation might be required for non-standard nodes, for example, a hub node that has wavelength selective switches installed. In such cases, manual creation is recommended by Cisco Transport Planner.



Note To successfully create an internal patchcord between WSS/DMX channel port and TXP trunk port, choose the TXP as the source endpoint and WSS/DMX as the destination endpoint.

Note Before provisioning OSC terminations on TNC ports carrying Fast Ethernet (FE) payloads, ensure to set the ALS mode on these ports to Disabled.



Note This procedure automatically turns on any OPT-RAMP-C, OPT-RAMP-CE, or RAMAN-CTP cards installed in the DWDM ring.



Note The DCCs, GCCs, and OSCs should not be provisioned between SONET (ANSI) and SDH (ETSI) nodes using CTC or TL1 because they cannot operate between SONET and SDH nodes. These communication channels should be provisioned on similar nodes, such as SONET-to-SONET or SDH-to-SDH.



Note In a pure ONS 15454 M6 network configuration, provision the OSC in GE or FE SFP mode. If an OC3 OSC is mandatory, then the network must be timing-synchronized as SONET. Identify the master node and provide external timing signal to the BITS input pins of the master node and provision line timing to the remaining nodes in the network.
In a mixed ONS 15454 and ONS 15454 M6 network configuration, provision the OSC only in OC3 SFP mode. Identify the master node and provide external timing signal to the BITS input pins of the master node and provision line timing to the remaining nodes in the network.



Step 1 Complete the DLP-G46 Log into CTC task at the node where you want to provision the OSC terminations. If you are already logged in, continue with Step 2.

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

Step 3 In the OSC Terminations area, click Create .

Step 4 In the Create OSC Terminations dialog box, choose the ports where you want to create the OSC termination. To select more than one port, press the Shift key (to select a range of ports) or the Ctrl key (to select multiple individual ports).


Note The number of OSC terminations that you create depends on the node type defined by Cisco Transport Planner. Terminal nodes require one OSC termination. Hub, OADM, and ROADM nodes require two OSC terminations.


Step 5 In the Layer 3 area, check the OSI box if the following conditions are met:

    • The OSC termination is between the ONS 15454 and another ONS node.
    • Third party NEs that use the OSI protocol stack are on the same network.

If you checked OSI, complete the following steps. If not, continue with Step 6.

a. Click Next .

b. Provision the following fields:

  • Router—Choose the OSI router.
  • ESH—Set the ESH propagation frequency. End system NEs transmit ESHs to inform other ESs and ISs about the NSAPs they serve. The default is 10 seconds. The range is 10 to 1000 seconds.
  • ISH—Sets the ISH PDU propagation frequency. Intermediate system NEs send ISHs to other ESs and ISs to inform them about the IS NETs it serves. The default is 10 seconds. The range is 10 to 1000 seconds.
  • IIH—Sets the IIH PDU propagation frequency. The IS-IS Hello PDUs establish and maintain adjacencies between ISs. The default is 3 seconds. The range is 1 to 600 seconds.
  • Metric—Sets the cost for sending packets on the LAN subnet. The IS-IS protocol uses the cost to calculate the shortest routing path. The default metric cost for LAN subnets is 20. It normally should not be changed.

Step 6 Click Finish . Ports are automatically placed in service. The following alarms might appear in the node view (single-shelf mode) or multishelf view (multishelf mode) Alarms tab Description field. They will remain until all the network OSC connections between the adjacent nodes are created:

    • SDCC Termination Failure (ANSI) or RS-DCC Termination Failure (ETSI) on the OSCM or OSC-CSM card
    • LOS on the OC-3 port (Port 1) on the OSCM, OSC-CSM, or OPT-BST card
    • OPWR-LFAIL on the OPT-BST or OSC-CSM card

Note After the OSC termination is created, the line ports are placed in service and span power levels are checked.


Stop . You have completed this procedure .


 

NTP-G37 Run Automatic Node Setup

 

Purpose

This procedure runs the Launch ANS function. Launch ANS applies the ANS parameters (calculated in the G143 Import the Cisco Transport Planner NE Update Configuration File) to the node and to the ports for cards installed in the node. The applied ANS parameters include span loss values, threshold values, power references, and others. Launch ANS also sets the VOA references based on the calculated power references.

    • Fail - Out of Range—The calculated setpoint is outside the expected range. If this status appears, do not continue until you have investigated and cleared the cause. This status might appear because of an error in the Cisco Transport Planner file. It could also appear because the insertion loss of the installed cards is greater than the estimated insertion loss calculated by Cisco Transport Planner. If so, the Cisco Transport Planner file will need to be recalculated. All of these possible causes should be investigated. Contact your next level of support if you are unable to clear this status.
    • Fail - Missing Input Parameter—The parameter could not be calculated because the required provisioning data is unknown or unavailable. If this status appears, check if the correct Cisco Transport Planner file was imported.
    • Unchanged - Port in IS—The parameter could not be calculated because the port is in service. This status should normally not appear at this point in node turn-up. If it does, display the card in card view, change the port administrative state to OOS,DSLB (ANSI) or Locked,disabled (ETSI), and repeat Steps 6 through 11 .

Note If the ports that are in service carry circuits, you must delete the circuits before you can place the ports out of service. See the G347 Delete Optical Channel Client Connections, the G418 Delete an Optical Channel Trail, or the G106 Delete Optical Channel Network Connections.

NTP-G163 Upgrade Nodes in Single-Shelf Mode to Multishelf Mode

 

Purpose

This procedure upgrades nodes in single-shelf mode to multishelf mode.

Tools/Equipment

The node you plan to use as the node controller must be equipped with optical units and cannot have a cross-connect card installed. Any nodes that you plan to add to the multishelf configuration as subtending shelves can be equipped with transponder and muxponder units. For more information on multishelf configurations, see Chapter12, “Node Reference”

Prerequisite Procedures

G22 Verify Common Card Installation

One of the following procedures in the Cisco CPT and Cisco ONS 15454 Hardware Installation Guide :

  • “NTP-G301 Connect the ONS 15454 Multishelf Node and Subtending Shelves to an MS-ISC-100T Card”, or

Caution An optical shelf in a multishelf configuration must be provisioned as the node controller shelf and not a subtending shelf, otherwise traffic will be dropped. If no slots are available on an optical shelf to install the MS-ISC-100T cards needed for a node controller shelf, install and configure the Cisco Catalyst 2950. See the “NTP-G302 Connect the ONS 15454 Multishelf Node and Subtending Shelves to a Catalyst 2950” procedure in the Cisco CPT and Cisco ONS 15454 Hardware Installation Guide.


Step 1 Complete the DLP-G46 Log into CTC task at the node that you want to configure as a multishelf node.

Step 2 If you want to configure a shelf as the node controller, continue with Step 3. If you want to configure a shelf as a subtending shelf, continue with Step 4.

Step 3 To set up the login node as the node controller, complete the following steps:

a. In node view (single-node mode) or multishelf view (multishelf mode), click the Provisioning > General > Multishelf Config tabs.

b. Click Enable as Node Controller .

c. From the LAN Config drop-down list, complete one of the following:

  • Choose Ethernet Switch if MS-ISC-100T cards or the Catalyst 2950 switches are already installed and configured.
  • Choose Stand-Alone if MS-ISC-100T cards are not installed yet but will be in the final layout or if this is a line amplifier or an OSC-only site. This option will allow a safe migration of the TCC2/TCC2P/TCC3/TNC/TNCE/TSC/TSCE database when the multishelf configuration is complete.

d. Click Apply .

e. In the confirmation dialog box, click Yes to allow the node to reboot. The CTC view changes to network view and the node icon changes to gray. Wait for the reboot to finish. (This might take several minutes.)

f. After the node reboots, double-click the node. The multishelf view appears.


Note The shelf ID of the node controller is automatically assigned as 1.


Step 4 To add a node as a subtending shelf in the multishelf configuration, complete the following:

a. In multishelf view, right-click in the white space in the rack and choose Add Shelf .

b. Select the type of subtending shelf (ONS 15454 or ONS 15454 M6).

c. In the Shelf ID Selection dialog box, choose a shelf ID (from 2 to 30) from the drop-down list.

d. Click OK . The shelf appears in the multishelf view.

e. Preprovision the new shelf so that it has the same provisioning as the actual shelf that you will add as the subtending shelf:


Caution If the subtending shelf is not preprovisioned, traffic will be lost.

f. Disconnect the cross-over (CAT-5) LAN cable from the RJ-45 (LAN) port of the ONS 15454 subtending shelf TCC2/TCC2P/TCC3 card in Slot 7 or Slot 11, or from the EMS port of ONS 15454 M6 subtending shelf.

g. Connect your Windows PC or Solaris workstation NIC to the RJ-45 (LAN) port on the subtending shelf ONS 15454 TCC2/TCC2P/TCC3 card in Slot 7 or Slot 11, or to the EMS port of the ONS 15454 M6 subtending shelf.

h. Complete the DLP-G46 Log into CTC task at the subtending shelf.

i. Click the Provisioning > General > Multishelf Config tabs.

j. Click Enable as Subtended Shelf .

k. Select the appropriate subtending shelf (ONS 15454 or ONS 15454 M6).

l. From the Shelf ID drop-down list, choose the shelf ID that you created in Step c .

m. Click Apply .

n. In the confirmation dialog box, click Yes to reboot the shelf. The CTC view changes to network view and the node icon changes to gray. Wait for the reboot to finish. (This might take several minutes.)

o. Disconnect your Windows PC or Solaris workstation network interface card (NIC) from the RJ-45 (LAN) port of the subtending shelf TCC2/TCC2P/TCC3 card in Slot 7 or Slot 11, or from the EMS port of the ONS 15454 M6 subtending shelf.

p. Reconnect the cross-over (CAT-5) LAN cable (disconnected in Step f ) to the RJ-45 (LAN) port of the subtending shelf TCC2/TCC2P/TCC3 card in Slot 7 or Slot 11, or to the EMS port of the ONS 15454 M6 subtending shelf.


Note The Ethernet cable must be connected to the subtended shelf TCC2/TCC2P/TCC3/TNC/TNCE/TSC/TSCE card soon after this TCC2/TCC2P/TCC3/TNC/TNCE/TSC/TSCE card completes its boot phase (when it becomes active and its peer TCC2/TCC2P/TCC3/TNC/TNCE/TSC/TSCE card starts rebooting). Connecting it before the TCC2/TCC2P/TCC3/TNC/TNCE/TSC/TSCE card completes its boot phase is a risk in the conversion process. Connecting it long time after completion of the boot phase might affect traffic due to missing provisioning.


q. Repeat Steps a through p to set up additional subtending shelves.


Note Cisco Transport Manager (CTM) users can use the CTM NE Explorer to monitor and configure single-shelf and multishelf nodes. When the upgrade is complete, the original individual subtending shelves will remain the CTM network view and must be manually deleted. For detailed information, refer to the Cisco Transport Manager User Guide, Appendix B, “NE Explorer Information.”
