RLS Commands

This chapter provides release (RLS) commands for the Cisco ONS 15454 SDH, Cisco ONS 15454 M2, and Cisco ONS 15454 M6.


NoteAll commands supported on the Cisco ONS 15454 SDH platform are also supported on Cisco ONS 15454 M2 and Cisco ONS 15454 M6 platforms.


18.1 RLS-CPS

( Cisco ONS 15454 SDH, Cisco ONS 15454 M2, Cisco ONS 15454 M6) The Release Control Plane Service (RLS-CPS) command is used to deactivate a Control Plane Service parameter.

 
Usage Guidelines

  • Specify only the source port to identify the CPS
  • Specify both the source AIDs, if the CPS is of type ADD 2WAY
  • If the AID is invalid, an IIAC (invalid AID) error message is returned
  • The ALL AID is invalid for this command
  • CLIENT cps type support FAC and VFAC AID type.
  • TRUNK cps type support CHAN AID type.
  • ADD cps type support CHAN, PCHAN, and LINEWL AID type.

Input Example

RLS-CPS::PCHAN-8-8-RX&PCHAN-8-8-TX:8::;

Input Parameters

<SRC>

Source AID from the “CrossConnectId1” section.

<CKTID>

Circuit identification parameter can be used to filter this command

18.2 RLS-EXT-CONT

(Cisco ONS 15454 SDH) The Release External Control (RLS-EXT-CONT) command releases a forced contact state and returns the control of the contact to an AUTOMATIC control state.

 
Usage Guidelines

  • In AUTOMATIC control state, the contact can be opened or closed depending on triggers that might or might not be provisioned in the NE. Therefore, issuing a RLS might not produce any contact state change.
  • The NE defaults to having no triggers provisioned for external controls, which consequently produces default open contacts. An NE with this default provisioning will always produce an open contact with a RLS-EXT-CONT command.
  • The duration is not supported; it defaults to CONTS.
  • In an automatic state, the contact could be opened or closed depending on the provisioned trigger. Therefore, issuing an OPR-EXT-CONT command followed by an RLS-EXT-CONT command might not produce any contact state change.
  • The RLS-EXT-CONT is not allowed during the MNTRY duration. The command is allowed for the CONTS duration. The length of MNTRY duration is set to be 2 seconds.
  • RLS-EXT-CONT cannot change the contact state to Automatic if the existing state is Manual Open.

Parameter
Description

<SRC>

Source access identifier from the “ALL” section. The valid values for AID are FACILITY, DS1, and STS. The AR-MXP, AR-XP, and AR-XPE cards use the VFAC Access Identifier.

<LOCATION>

(Optional) The location where the operation is to be carried out. LOCATION defaults to NEND. The parameter type is LOCATION, which is the location where the action is to take place.

  • FEND

Action occurs on the far end of the facility.

  • NEND

Action occurs on the near end of the facility.

<LPBKTYPE>

(Optional) Type of loopback signal. The parameter type is LPBK_TYPE, which indicates the type of loopback that is to be operated or released.

  • BACKPLANE-FACILITY

Puts the 100G-LC-C, 10x10G-LC, and CFP-LC cards in facility loopback.

  • BACKPLANE-TERMINAL

Puts the 100G-LC-C, 10x10G-LC, and CFP-LC cards in Terminal loopback.

  • CRS

Path-level loopback that is established at the cross-connect matrix level. A VC level cross-connect loopback causes an AIS-P to be sent on the outgoing direction of transmission.

  • FACILITY

Type of loopback that connects the incoming received signal immediately following the optical-to-electrical conversion (after descrambling) to the associated transmitter in the return direction.

  • TERMINAL

A loopback that connects the signal that is about to be transmitted (after scrambling but before the electrical-to-optical conversion) and is connected to the associated, incoming receiver.

18.4 RLS-LPBK-EFM

(Cisco ONS 15454 SDH) The Release Loopback Ethernet in the First Mile (RLS-LPBK-EFM) command releases the loopback that is provisioned on the Ethernet in the First Mile (EFM) enabled port.

18.7 RLS-PROTNSW-<STM_TYPE>

(Cisco ONS 15454 SDH) The Release Protection Switch (STM1, STM4, STM16, STM64) command releases a protection switch request. See Table 27-1 for supported modifiers by platform.

 
Usage Guidelines

  • The release of a protection switch request is applicable only to the OPR-PROTNSW protection switch commands, the user-initiated switch protection commands.
  • Use the RTRV-COND-ALL or RTRV-ALM-ALL command to retrieve the protection switching state (manual, lockout, forced).
  • DIRN is an optional parameter. A NULL value defaults to BTH for a MS-SPRing protection, BTH for 1+1 bidirectional protection group, and RCV for 1+1 unidirectional protection group.

DIRN follows these rules: TRMT will always fail for any kind of protection groups. For two-fiber and four-fiber MS-SPRing protection groups, both the RCV and TRMT directions will fail.

  • DIRN is applicable for both 1+1 and MS-SPRing protection groups. OPR-PROTNSW applies to a MS-SPRing span/ring as shown by the following command:

RLS-PROTNSW-STM16::FAC-5-1:A::BTH;

This command instructs the NE to release a line protection switch request between a working line and a protection line.

The following actions will return error messages:

  • This command is not used for the common control (TCC2, TCC2P, TCC3, XC-VXL-10G, XC-VXL-2.5G, or XC-VXC-10G) cards. Sending a command on a common control card will return an Input, Invalid Access Identifier (IIAC) error message. To switch common control cards, use the SW-DX-EQPT and ALW-SWDX-EQPT commands.
  • Sending this command to non-SDH (STM) cards will return an Input, Invalid Access Identifier (IIAC) error message. To switch a non-SDH card, use the ALW-SWTOPROTN-EQPT, ALS-SWTOWKG-EQPT, INH-SWTOPROTN-EQPT, and INH-SWTOWKG-EQPT commands.
  • Sending this command to query on a card that is not in a protection group will return the Status, Not in Valid State (SNVS) error message.
  • Sending this command to a working card that is failed or missing will return the Status, Working Unit Failed (SWFA) error message.
  • Sending this command to a protect card that is failed or missing will return the Status, Protection Unit Failed (SPFA) error message.
  • Sending this command to a card that is not in protection will return the Status, Not in Protection State (SNPR) error message.
  • Sending this command to an STM line that is already in clear mode will return an Already in Clear Maintenance State (SAMS) error message.
