3.1  Replace a CXC Card


Warning Do not reach into a vacant slot or chassis while you install or remove a module or a fan. Exposed circuitry could constitute an energy hazard.



Note The ONS15600SDH system dynamically changes the preferred copy status from one Core Cross Connect (CXC) to the redundant copy if an error is detected on a card port. You can see this change in the Cisco Transport Controller (CTC) node view Maintenance>PreferredCopy window Currently Used field. If errors are detected on both CXC copies, the CurrentlyUsed field says Both.



Note You do not need to make any changes to the database if you are replacing it with a card of exactly the same type.



Note Card removal raises an improper removal (IMPROPRMVL) alarm, but this clears after the card replacement is complete.



Step 1 Log into the node where you will replace the CXC card. If necessary, refer to the CiscoONS15600SDH Procedure Guide for a login procedure.

Step 2 Physically remove the card to be replaced from the ONS15600SDH shelf:

a. Open the card ejectors.

b. Slide the card out of the slot.

Step 3 Physically replace the CXC card in the shelf:

a. Open the ejectors on the replacement card.

b. Slide the replacement card into the slot along the guide rails until it contacts the backplane.

c. Close the ejectors.


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



3.2  Replace an STM-16 Card or STM-64 Card


Warning Do not reach into a vacant slot or chassis while you install or remove a module or a fan. Exposed circuitry could constitute an energy hazard.



Note Card removal raises an improper removal (IMPROPRMVL) alarm, but this clears after the card replacement is completed.



Step 1 Log into the node where you will replace the STM-16 or STM-64 card. If necessary, refer to the CiscoONS15600SDH Procedure Guide for a login procedure.

Step 2 Ensure that the card you are replacing does not carry traffic in a 1+1 protection group:

a. In node view, click the Maintenance > Protection tabs.

b. Choose the first group listed under Protection Groups.

c. Verify that the slot number for the card you are replacing does not appear in the Selected Groups list. For example, if you are replacing the STM-16 card in Slot 3, make sure that Selected Groups does not contain any entries that start with s3, regardless of the port.

d. Repeat Steps b  and c  for each protection group.

e. If any of the groups contain a port on the card you want to replace, complete the "3.2.1  Initiate a Force Switch on a 1+1 Port" procedure .

Step 3 Ensure that the card you are replacing does not carry subnetwork connection protection (SNCP) circuit traffic.


Note A port can be part of a 1+1 protection group or part of a SNCP, but it cannot be configured for both. However, different ports on one card can be configured in different ways. If you move all of the traffic off some 1+1 ports, you still need to check whether the remaining ports are carrying SNCP traffic.


a. From the View menu, choose Go to Parent View .

b. Click the Circuits tab.

c. View the circuit source and destination ports and slots. If any circuits originate or terminate in the slot containing the card you are replacing, perform the "3.2.2  Switch all SNCP Circuits on a Span" procedure .


Note If the card you are replacing is not configured for any port or circuit protection, but does carry traffic, bridge and roll this traffic onto another card. Follow the "Bridge and Roll Traffic" procedure in the CiscoONS15600SDH Procedure Guide.


Step 4 Ensure that the card you are replacing does not carry multiplex section-shared protection ring (MS-SPRing) circuit traffic.

a. In the CTC node view, click View > Go to Parent View .

b. Click the Circuits tab.

c. View the circuit source and destination ports and slots. If any circuits originate or terminate in the slot containing the card you are replacing, perform the "3.2.3  Initiate a Force Switch on an MS-SPRing Span" procedure .


Note If the card you are replacing is not configured for any port or circuit protection, but does carry traffic, bridge and roll this traffic onto another card. Follow the "Bridge and Roll Traffic" procedure in the CiscoONS15600SDH Procedure Guide.


Step 5 Remove any fiber optic cables from the ports.

Step 6 Physically remove the card that you want to replace from the ONS15600SDH shelf:

a. Open the card ejectors.

b. Slide the card out of the slot.

Step 7 Physically replace the STM-16 or STM-64 card in the shelf:

a. Open the ejectors on the replacement card.

b. Slide the replacement card into the slot along the guide rails until it contacts the backplane.

c. Close the ejectors.


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


Step 8 Clear the Force switches:

To clear 1+1 Force switches, complete the "3.2.4  Clear a Force Switch on a 1+1 Port" procedure .

To clear SNCP Force switches, complete the "3.2.5  Clear a Force Switch on a SNCP Span" procedure .

To clear MS-SPRing Force switches, complete the "3.2.6  Clear a Force Switch on a MS-SPRing Span" procedure .

Step 9 When the card is in service and receiving traffic, reset the card's physical receive power level threshold in CTC:

a. Double-click the newly installed card in CTC node view.

b. Click the Provisioning > Threshold tabs.

c. Click the Physical radio button.

d. Click Set OPR for each port on the card.


3.2.1  Initiate a Force Switch on a 1+1 Port

This procedure switches 1+1 protection group traffic from one port in the group to the other using a Force switch.


Caution The Force command overrides normal protective switching mechanisms. Applying this command incorrectly can cause traffic outages.



Caution Traffic is not protected during a Force protection switch.



Note A Force switch will switch traffic even if the path has signal degrade (SD) or signal fail (SF) conditions; a Manual switch will switch traffic if the path has an error rate less than the signal degrade. A Force switch has a higher priority than a Manual switch.



Step 1 In node view, click the Maintenance > Protection tabs.

Step 2 In the Protection Groups area, select the protection group with the port you want to switch.

Step 3 In the Selected Groups area, select the port belonging to the card you are replacing. For example, if the card you are replacing contains the protect/standby port, click this port.

Step 4 Click Force .

Step 5 If the switch is successful, the group will say either FORCE TO WORKING or FORCE TO PROTECT.

Step 6 Return to the "3.2Replace an STM-16 Card or STM-64 Card" procedure.


3.2.2  Switch all SNCP Circuits on a Span

This procedure switches all circuits in an SNCP from the working span to the protect. It is used to remove traffic from a card that originates or terminates SNCP circuits.


Caution The Force command overrides normal protective switching mechanisms. Applying this command incorrectly can cause traffic outages.



Caution Traffic is not protected during a Force protection switch.



Step 1 In network view, click the Circuits tab.


Note To move from the node view to the network view, choose Go to Network View from the View menu.


Step 2 Record, print, or export the list of circuits from this tab, and mark the circuits that originate or terminate at the slot containing the card you are replacing.

For information about doing this from CTC, refer to the procedures in the Cisco ONS 15600 SDH Procedures Guide.

Step 3 In the network map, right-click a circuit connected to the node where you are performing the Force switch. Choose Circuits from the shortcut menu.

The Circuits window appears.

Step 4 Verify that this list contains the same circuits that you marked in the list.

Step 5 Choose Force from the drop-down menu at the bottom of the window.

If the switch was successful, all circuits will show FORCE in the Switch State column.

Step 6 Return to the "3.2Replace an STM-16 Card or STM-64 Card" procedure.


3.2.3  Initiate a Force Switch on an MS-SPRing Span

This procedure switches all circuits in a MS-SPRing to another span. It is used to remove traffic from a card that originates or terminates MS-SPRing circuits.


Caution The Force command overrides normal protective switching mechanisms. Applying this command incorrectly can cause traffic outages.



Caution Traffic is not protected during a Force protection switch.



Step 1 In the network view, click the Provisioning > MS-SPRing tabs.


Note To move from node view to network view, choose Go to Network View from the View menu.


Step 2 Click Edit .

Step 3 To apply a Force switch to the west line:

a. Right-click the west MS-SPRing port where you want to switch the MS-SPRing traffic and choose Set West Protection Operation .


Note If node icons overlap, drag and drop the icons to a new location. You can also return to network view and change the positions of the network node icons (MS-SPRing node icons are based on the network view node icon positions).



Note For two-fiber MS-SPRings, the squares on the node icons represent the MS-SPRing working and protect channels. You can right-click either channel.


b. In the Set West Protection Operation dialog box, choose FORCE RING from the drop-down menu. Click OK .

c. Click Yes in the two Confirm MS-SPRing Operation dialog boxes that appear.

On the network graphic, an F appears on the working MS-SPRing channel where you invoked the protection switch. The span lines change color to reflect the switched traffic. Green span lines indicate the new MS-SPRing path, and the lines between the protection switch are purple.

Performing a Force switch generates several conditions including FORCED-REQ-RING and WKSWPR.

Step 4 To apply a Force switch to the east line:

a. Right-click the east MS-SPRing port and choose Set East Protection Operation .


Note If node icons overlap, drag and drop the icons to a new location. You can also return to network view and change the positions of the network node icons. (MS-SPRing node icons are based on the network view node icon positions.)

b. In the Set East Protection Operation dialog box, choose FORCE RING from the drop-down menu. Click OK .

c. Click Yes in the two Confirm MS-SPRing Operation dialog boxes that appear.

On the network graphic, an F appears on the working MS-SPRing channel where you invoked the protection switch. The span lines change color to reflect the switched traffic. Green span lines indicate the new MS-SPRing path, and the lines between the protection switch are purple.

Performing a Force switch generates several conditions including FORCED-REQ-RING and WKSWPR.

Step 5 From the File menu, choose Close .

Step 6 Return to the "3.2Replace an STM-16 Card or STM-64 Card" procedure.


3.2.4  Clear a Force Switch on a 1+1 Port

This procedure clears a Force switch on a 1+1 protection group port.


Note If the ports terminating a span are configured as revertive, clearing a Force switch to protect (or working) moves traffic back to the working (or protect) port. If ports are not configured as revertive, clearing a Force switch to protect does not move traffic back.



Step 1 In node view, click the Maintenance > Protection tabs.

Step 2 In the Protection Groups area, choose the protection group containing the port you want to clear.

Step 3 In the Selected Group area, choose the port you want to clear.

Step 4 In the Inhibit Switching area, click Clear .

Step 5 Click Yes in the confirmation dialog box.

The Force switch is cleared. Traffic will revert to the original port if the group was configured for revertive switching.

Step 6 Return to the "3.2Replace an STM-16 Card or STM-64 Card" procedure.


3.2.5  Clear a Force Switch on a SNCP Span

This procedure clears a SNCP Force switch. It reverts traffic to the original circuits after the card has been serviced.


Note If the ports terminating a span are configured as revertive, clearing a Force switch to protect (or working) moves traffic back to the working (or protect) port. If ports are not configured as revertive, clearing a Force switch to protect does not move traffic back.



Step 1 In network view, right-click the span that you switched. Choose Circuits from the shortcut menu.

The Circuits window appears.


Note To move from node view to network view, choose Go to Network View from the View menu.


Step 2 Choose Clear from the drop-down menu at the bottom of the window.

The Force switch is cleared.


Note Active circuits appear green in the Circuits window; standby circuits appear purple.



Note If these circuits are configured for revertive switching, they will revert to their original paths after the revertive time expires. If they are not revertive, they will not revert unless you switch them back. If the switch state is clear, you can complete the "3.2.2Switch all SNCP Circuits on a Span" procedure again to switch traffic back to the original path.


Step 3 Return to the "3.2Replace an STM-16 Card or STM-64 Card" procedure.


3.2.6  Clear a Force Switch on a MS-SPRing Span

This procedure clears a MS-SPRing Force switch. It reverts traffic to the original circuits after the card has been serviced.


Step 1 In network view, click the Provisioning > MS-SPRing tabs.


Note To move from node view to network view, choose Go to Network View from the View menu.


Step 2 Click Edit .

Step 3 To clear a Force switch on the west line:

Step 5 From the File menu, choose Close .

Step 6 Return to the "3.2Replace an STM-16 Card or STM-64 Card" procedure.


3.3  Replace a TSC Card


Warning Do not reach into a vacant slot or chassis while you install or remove a module or a fan. Exposed circuitry could constitute an energy hazard.



Note When an error is detected on a TSC card, the ONS15600SDH system switches control to the second TSC card; therefore, it should not be necessary to change control when you replace the card.



Note You do not need to make any changes to the database if you are replacing it with a card of exactly the same type.



Note Card removal raises an improper removal (IMPROPRMVL) alarm, but this clears after the card replacement is completed.



Step 1 Log into the node where you will replace the TSC card. If necessary, refer to the CiscoONS15600SDH Procedure Guide for a login procedure.

Step 2 To ensure that the card you are replacing is not the active TSC card, run the mouse over the card in CTC. If the popup for the card says Active, switch it to Standby:

a. Right-click the active TSC card to reveal the shortcut menu.

b. Click Soft-reset Card .

c. Click Yes when the confirmation dialog box appears.

d. Click OK when the "Lost connection to node, changing to Network View" dialog box appears.


Note The TSC card takes several minutes to reboot. Refer to the CiscoONS15600SDH Procedure Guide for more information about LED behavior during TSC card reboots.



Note Whenever TSC cards are changed from active to standby, it takes approximately 12 minutes to completely synchronize to the new system clock source due to the more accurate Stratum3E timing module being adopted.


Step 3 Confirm that the TSC card you reset is in standby mode after the reset.

A TSC card that is ready for service has a green SRV LED illuminated. An active TSC card has a green ACT STBY LED illuminated, but a standby card does not have this LED illuminated.


Tip If you run the cursor over the TSC card in CTC, a popup displays the card's status (whether active or standby).


Step 4 Physically remove the card you want to replace from the ONS15600SDH:

a. Open the card ejectors.

b. Slide the card out of the slot.

Step 5 Insert the replacement TSC card into the empty slot:

a. Open the ejectors on the replacement card.

b. Slide the replacement card into the slot along the guide rails until it contacts the backplane.

c. Close the ejectors.

Step 6 If you want to make the replaced TSC card active, complete Steps b through d again.


3.4  Replace the Air Filter


Warning Do not reach into a vacant slot or chassis while you install or remove a module or a fan. Exposed circuitry could constitute an energy hazard.



Caution Do not begin this procedure until you have a replacement filter at hand, ready for insertion.



Note The filter should be replaced approximately every 30 days with a new, clean filter.



Step 1 If the ONS15600SDH has a front door installed, open the front door:

a. Lift the latch and pull.

b. Swing the door open.

Step 2 Lift the door off its hinge pins and remove it. Set the door aside so you can reinstall it after you complete this procedure.

If the shelf does not have a front door installed, proceed to Step 3 .

Step 3 Locate the air filter. It is in the top of the shelf, above the three fan trays. Figure3-1 illustrates a shelf with one fan unit pulled out. The air filter is located in the internal filter bracket above the fans.

Figure 3-1 Air Filter With One Fan Unit Pulled Out

Step 4 Grasp the D-ring handle of the filter and pull it upward about 1/4 inch, being careful not dislodge any dust that might have collected on the filter.

Step 5 Slide the old filter past the indentations inside each side of the shelf that secure it in place.

Step 6 Continue pulling the filter straight up and then use both hands to gently slide the filter out of the shelf. Be careful not to dislodge any dust that might have collected on the filter.

Step 7 Position the new filter correctly. The D-ring handle should be on top and facing toward you. The foam should be facing upward, and the metal mesh should be facing downward.

Step 8 Slide the new air filter over the diagonal tracks in the compartment above the fan trays. Push it all the way back.

Step 9 Push the filter downward inside the tray, past the indentations inside each side of the shelf that secure the filter in place. The filter clicks into place.


3.5  Replace a Fan Tray


Caution Do not force a fan tray into place. Forcing a fan tray can damage the connectors on the fan tray or the connectors on the back panel of the shelf assembly.



Caution The center fan tray (Tray 2) in the ONS15600SDH shelf is the most critical tray because it cools the common control cards. If both fans in this tray are inoperative, CTC initiates a five-minute countdown to shut down one of the CXC cards. You should swap a working fan tray (Tray 1 or 3) with Tray 2 as soon as possible to prevent equipment damage.


The ONS15600SDH system requires at least one working fan in each of the three fan trays. When a single fan in a tray fails, Cisco recommends replacing the tray with a fully working tray as soon as practicable. To replace a fan tray, it is not necessary to move any of the cable management facilities.


Note Each fan tray contains two fans. The FAN LED indicates if one or both fans fail in a fan tray.



Step 1 Lift the latch on the fan tray that you want to replace, and pull the fan tray away from the shelf assembly.


Caution When a fan tray is removed from a shelf assembly, it momentarily creates the same situation that occurs if two fans in a single tray fail. In this situation (that is, the system is running on two fans), CTC software begins a five-minute countdown before shutting down CXC card operation in order to protect the cards. Replace the fan tray into the shelf assembly as quickly as possible to avoid CXC card shutdown.


Step 2 Insert the new fan tray in the shelf assembly.

Step 3 Press the latch down to secure the fan tray.


3.6  Replace the Customer Access Panel

To maintain network connectivity when changing the customer access panel (CAP_, move the Ethernet cable from the CAP LAN port to the LAN port on the active TSC card.


Step 1 Remove any tie wraps and cables attached to the CAP ( Figure3-2).

Figure 3-2 CAP Faceplate and Connections

Step 2 Label and remove the wire-wrap pin field wires from the CAP and move the wires aside.

Step 3 To remove the CAP:

a. Remove the 14 screws on the left and right sides of the CAP using a 3/16-in. socket.

b. Remove the 17 nuts on the top and bottom of the CAP using a 1/4-in. socket.

c. Loosen the center bolt using a 7/16-in. socket. This creates an extraction force on the connectors to successfully unmate them.

d. Pull the CAP off of the alignment pins.

Step 4 Place the replacement CAP over the alignment pins on the backplane and tighten the center bolt using a 7/16-in. socket. This creates an insertion force that successfully mates the connectors.

Step 5 Verify that the CAP cover is contacting the rear cover around the CAP perimeter.

Step 6 Replace the CAP screws and tighten to the specified torque (6 to 7 ft-lb).

Step 7 Replace the wire-wrap wires on the pin field according to their labeled positions.

Step 8 Replace the tie wraps and cables.


3.7  Remove a Power Distribution Unit

This procedure removes the ONS15600SDH power distribution unit (PDU).
