Primary
Action

Display the event summary on the faulty mate side, using the report event-summary command (see the Cisco BTS 10200 Softswitch CLI Database for command details).

Secondary
Action

Review the information in the event summary. This is usually a software problem.

Ternary
Action

After confirming the active side is processing traffic, restart software on the mate side. Log in to the mate platform as root user. Enter the platform stop command and then the platform start command.

Subsequent
Action

If software restart does not resolve the problem or if the platform goes immediately to faulty again, or does not start, contact Cisco Technical Assistance Center (TAC). It may be necessary to reinstall software. If problem is commonly occurring, then the OS or a hardware failure may be the problem. Reboot the host machine, then reinstall and restart all applications. Rebooting brings down other applications running on this machine. Contact Cisco TAC for assistance.

Primary
Action

Review information from CLI log report.

Secondary
Cause

This alarm is usually caused by a software problem on the specific platform identified in the alarm report.

Secondary
Action

Restart the platform identified in the alarm report.

Ternary
Action

If platform restart is not successful, reinstall the application for this platform, and then restart platform again.

Subsequent
Action

If necessary, reboot host machine this platform is located on. Then reinstall and restart all applications on this machine. If faulty state is a commonly occurring event, then the OS or a hardware failure may be the problem. Contact Cisco TAC for assistance. It may also be helpful to gather information from event and alarm reports that were issued before and after this alarm report.


Maintenance (6)

Primary
Cause

The system failed to changeover within the required time period. Soon after this event is issued, one platform will go to the faulty state.

Primary
Action

Review the information from CLI log report.

Secondary
Cause

This alarm is usually caused by a software problem on the specific platform identified in the alarm report.

Secondary
Action

Restart the platform identified in the alarm report.

Ternary
Action

If platform restart is not successful, reinstall the application for this platform, and then restart the platform again.

Subsequent
Action

If necessary, reboot the host machine this platform is located on. Then reinstall and restart all applications on this machine. If faulty state is a commonly occurring event, then the operating system (OS) or a hardware failure may be the problem. Contact Cisco TAC for assistance. It may also be helpful to gather information from event and alarm reports that were issued before and after this alarm report.


Maintenance (7)

Datawords

Local State—STRING [30]
Mate State—STRING [30]

Primary
Cause

Mate is not yet in stable state.

Primary
Action

Enter the status command to get information on the two systems in the pair (primary and secondary Element Management System (EMS), Call Agent (CA), or Feature Server (FS)).

Secondary
Cause

The mate detects itself faulty during changeover and then rejects changeover.

Note This attempted changeover could be caused by a forced (operator) switch, or could be caused by secondary instance rejecting changeover while the primary instance is being brought up.

Secondary
Action

If the mate is faulty (not running), then perform the corrective action steps listed for the Maintenance (4) event.

Ternary
Action

If both systems (local and mate) are still running, determine whether both instances are operating in a stable state (one in active and the other in standby). If both are in a stable state, wait 10 minutes and try the control command again.

Subsequent
Action

If the standby side is not in stable state, bring down the standby side and restart software using the platform stop and platform start commands. If software restart does not resolve the problem, or if the problem is commonly occurring, contact Cisco TAC. It may be necessary to reinstall software. Additional OS or hardware problems may also need to be resolved.

Mate Rejected Changeover—Maintenance (7)

The Mate Rejected Changeover alarm (major) indicates that the mate rejected the changeover. The primary cause of the alarm is that the mate is not in a stable state. To correct the primary cause of the alarm, enter the status command to get information on the two systems in the pair (primary and secondary EMS, CA or FS). The secondary cause of the alarm is that the mate detects that it is faulty during changeover and then rejects changeover.

To correct the secondary cause of the alarm, check to see if the mate is faulty (not running), then perform the corrective action steps listed in the "Mate Side Has Become Faulty—Maintenance (4)" section. Additionally, if both systems (local and mate) are still running, diagnose whether both instances are operating in stable state (one in active and the other in standby). If both are in a stable state, wait 10 minutes and retry the control command. If standby side is not in stable state, bring down the standby side and restart software using the platform stop and platform start commands. If software restart does not resolve the problem, or if the problem is commonly occurring, contact Cisco TAC. It may be necessary to reinstall software. Additional operating system or hardware problems may also need to be resolved.

To continue troubleshooting the cause of the alarm, refer to Figure 7-1 if the forced switchover has been rejected by the secondary. Refer to Figure 7-2 if the primary failed to come up in the active state.
