NTP-D91 DS3 i-N-12 Protect Cards from 1:1 Protection to 1:N Protection

Purpose

This procedure converts DS3i-N-12 cards from 1:1 protection to 1:N protection. A 1:N protection group can protect a maximum of five working cards.

Tools/Equipment

None

Prerequisite Procedures

DLP-D71 Create a 1:1 Protection Group

Required/As Needed

As needed

Onsite/Remote

Onsite or remote

Security Level

Provisioning or higher

Note: This procedure assumes that DS3i-N-12 cards are installed in Slots 1 to 6 and/or Slots 12 to 17. The DS3i-N-12 cards in Slots 3 and 15 are the protect cards. Each protect card protects the other DS3i-N-12 cards in that half of the shelf. The ONS 15454 SDH must run CTC Software R4.0 or later.

  1. Complete the "DLP-D60 Log into CTC" task at the node where you want to convert the DS3i-N-12 cards from 1:1 to 1:N protection. If you are already logged in, proceed to Step 2.
  2. In node view, click the Maintenance > Protection tabs.
  3. Click the protection group that contains Slot 3 or Slot 15 (where you will install the DS3i-N-12 card).
  4. Make sure the slot you are upgrading is not carrying working traffic. In the Selected Group list, the protect slot must say Protect/Standby and not Working/Active. If the protect slot status is Working/Active, use the following steps to switch traffic to the working card:
    1. Under Selected Group, click the protect card.
    2. Next to Switch Commands, click Switch.
      The working slot should change to Working/Active and the protect slot should change to Protect/Standby. If they fail to change, do not continue. Troubleshoot the working card and slot to determine why the card cannot carry working traffic.
  5. Repeat Steps 3 and 4 for each protection group that you need to convert.
  6. Verify that no standing alarms exist for any of the DS3i-N-12 cards you are converting. If alarms exist and you have difficulty clearing them, contact your next level of support.
  7. Click the Provisioning > Protection tabs.
  8. Click the 1:1 protection group that contains the cards that you will move into the new protection group.
  9. Click Delete.
  10. When the confirmation dialog box appears, click Yes.
    Note: Deleting the 1:1 protection groups will not disrupt service. However, no protection bandwidth exists for the working circuits until the 1:N protection procedure is completed. Therefore, complete this procedure as soon as possible.
  11. If you are deleting more than one protection group, repeat Steps 8 through 10 for each group.
  12. Physically insert a DS3i-N-12 card into the same slot.
  13. Verify that the card boots up properly.
  14. Click the Inventory tab and verify that the new card appears as a DS3i-N-12 card.
  15. Click the Provisioning > Protection tabs.
  16. Click Create.
  17. (Optional) Type a name for the protection group in the Name field.
  18. Click Type and choose 1:N (card) from the drop-down list.
  19. Verify that the DS3i-N-12 card appears in the Protect Card field.
  20. In the Available Cards list, highlight the cards that you want in the protection group. Click the arrow (>>) tab to move the cards to the Working Cards list.
  21. Click OK.
    The protection group should appear in the Protection Groups list on the Protection subtab.
  22. As needed, complete the NTP-D108 Back Up the Database.
    Stop. You have completed this procedure.

Note: On the STM64-XFP, MRC-12, and MRC-2.5G-12 cards, the PPM is equivalent to an optical port.

  1. Complete the "DLP-D60 Log into CTC" task at the node where you want to change the card service state.
  2. Click the Inventory tab.
  3. Click Admin State for the card or PPM you want to change, and choose an administrative state from the drop-down list: Unlocked or Locked,maintenance.
  4. Click Apply.
  5. If an error message opens indicating that the card or PPM state cannot be changed from its current state, click OK.
    Depending on the Admin State you choose, the card or port/PPM transitions to a different service state. For more information about the service states and card state transitions, refer to the "Administrative and Service States" appendix of the Cisco ONS 15454 SDH Reference Manual.
    Stop. You have completed this procedure.

NTP-D331 Manage Pluggable Port Modules

Purpose

This procedure provisions, changes, and deletes PPMs for the MRC-12, MRC-2.5G-12, and STM64-XFP cards. (STM64-XFP cards are single-rate PPMs, and therefore can only be deleted.)

Tools/Equipment

  3. Click the Alarms tab:
    1. Verify that the alarm filter is not turned on. See the "DLP-D227 Disable Alarm Filtering" task as necessary.
    2. Verify that no unexplained conditions appear on the network. If unexplained conditions appear, resolve them before continuing. Refer to the Cisco ONS 15454 SDH Troubleshooting Guide.
    3. Complete the "DLP-D147 Export CTC Data" task to export alarm and condition information.
  4. As needed, complete the "DLP-D132 Provision a Multirate PPM on the MRC-12 and MRC-2.5G-12 Cards" task. Single-rate PPMs do not require provisioning.
  5. As needed, complete the "DLP-D133 Provision the Optical Line Rate on the MRC-12 and MRC-2.5G-12 Cards" task to assign an OC-3, OC-12, or OC-48 line rate.
  6. As needed, complete the "DLP-D134 Change the Optical Line Rate on the MRC-12 and MRC-2.5G-12 Cards" task to change the line rate on a multirate PPM. You cannot change the optical line rate on single-rate PPMs.
  7. As needed, complete the "DLP-D135 Delete a PPM from the MRC-12, MRC-2.5G-12, or STM64-XFP Card" task.

Stop. You have completed this procedure.

NTP-D354 Provision the Soak Timer for an ML-Series Card

  3. Click the Provisioning tab.
  4. Click the Ether Ports or POS Ports subtabs and complete the following:
    • PSAS-Check to enable Pre-Service Alarm Suppression (PSAS), which suppresses all alarms on the port for the time designated in the Soak Time column.
    • Soak Time-Choose the desired soak time (in hours and minutes). Use this column when you have checked PSAS to suppress alarms. Once the port detects a signal, the countdown begins for the designated soak time. Soak time hours can be set from 0 to 48. Soak time minutes can be set from 0 to 45 in 15 minute increments.
  5. Click Apply.

Stop. You have completed this procedure.
