Note To apply alock-onto a protect card in a 1:1 or 1:N protection group, the protect card must be active. If the protect card is in standby, the Lock On button is disabled. To make the protect card active, you must switch traffic from the working card to the protect card (Step 4). When the protect card is active, you can apply thelock-on.

Step 1 Use the following rules to determine if you can apply alock-on:

For a 1:1 electrical protection group, the working or protect cards can be placed in the Lock On state.

For a 1:N electrical protection group, the working or protect cards can be placed in the Lock On state.

For a 1+1 optical protection group, only the working port can be placed in the Lock On state.

Step 2 In node view, click theMaintenance > Protection tabs.

Step 3 In the Protection Groups list, click the protection group where you want to apply the Lock On state.

Step 4 If you determine that the protect card is in standby mode and you want to apply the Lock On state to the protect card, make the protect card active:

a.In the Selected Group list, click the protect card.

b.In the Switch Commands area, click Force.

Step 5 In the Selected Group list, click the active card where you want to lock traffic.

DLPD221 Provision E-SeriesEthernet Ports for VLAN Membership

Note Both 1000 Full and Auto modes set theE1000-2-Gport to the 1000 Mbps and Full duplex operating mode; however, flow control is disabled when 1000 Full is selected. Choosing Auto mode enables theE1000-2-Gcard to autonegotiate flow control. Flow control is a mechanism that prevents network congestion by ensuring that transmitting devices do not overwhelm receiving devices with data. TheE1000-2-Gport handshakes with the connected network device to determine if that device supports flow control.

Enabled—Checkthis check box to activate the corresponding Ethernet port.

Priority—Choosea queuing priority for the port. Options range from 0 (Low) to 7 (High). Priority queuing (IEEE 802.1Q) reduces the impact of network congestion by mapping Ethernet traffic to different priority levels. Refer to the priority queuing information in theEthernet Card Software Feature and Configuration Guide for the Cisco ONS 15454, Cisco ONS 15454 SDH, and

Cisco ONS 15327. This parameter does not apply to anE-Seriescard inport-mappedmode.

If a port is a member of only one VLAN, choose Untag from the Port column in the VLAN’s row. Choose-- for all the other VLAN rows in that Port column.

Note The VLAN withUntag selected can connect to the port, but other VLANs cannot access that port.

Choose Tagged at all VLAN rows that need to be trunked. ChooseUntag at VLAN rows that do not need to be trunked, for example, the default VLAN.

Note Each Ethernet port must be attached to at least one untagged VLAN. A trunk port connects multiple VLANs to an external device, such as a switch, which also supports trunking. A trunk port must have tagging (IEEE 802.1Q) enabled for all the VLANs that connect to that external device.

Step 4 After each port is in the appropriate VLAN, clickApply.Table 19-3 lists the VLAN settings.

Note If Tagged is chosen, the attached external Ethernet devices must recognize IEEE 802.1Q VLANs.

Step 5 In the Set Circuit State dialog box, choose the administrative state from the Target Circuit Admin Statedrop-downlist:

Unlocked—Putsthe circuitcross-connectsin theUnlocked-enabledservice state.

Locked,disabled—Putsthe circuitcross-connectsin theLocked-enabled,disabledservice state. Traffic is not passed on the circuit.

Unlocked,automaticInService—Putsthe circuitcross-connectsin theUnlocked-disabled,automaticInServiceservice state and suppresses alarms and conditions. When the connections receive a valid signal, the service state automatically changes toUnlocked-enabled.

Locked,maintenance—Putsthe circuitcross-connectsin theLocked-enabled,maintenanceservice state. The maintenance state does not interrupt traffic flow; it suppresses alarms and conditions and allows loopbacks to be performed on the circuit. Use Locked,maintenance for circuit testing or to suppress circuit alarms temporarily. Change the administrative state to Unlocked; Unlocked,automaticInService; or Locked,disabled when testing is complete.

Locked,outOfGroup—(VCATcircuits only; future use) Puts the membercross-connectsin theLocked-enabled,outOfGroupservice state. This administrative state is used to place a member circuit out of the group and to stop sending traffic.Locked-enabled,outOfGrouponly applies to thecross-connectson an end node where the VCAT resides. Thecross-connectson intermediate nodes are in theLocked-enabled,maintenanceservice state.

For additional information about circuit service states, refer to the “Circuits and Tunnels” chapter in the

Cisco ONS 15454 SDH Reference Manual.

Step 6 If you want to apply the state to the circuit source and destination ports, check theApply to Drop Ports check box.

Step 7 Click Apply.

Step 8 If the Apply to Ports Results dialog box appears, view the results and clickOK.

CTC will not change the service state of the circuit source and destination port in certain circumstances. For example, if a port is in loopback (Locked-enabled,loopback& maintenance), CTC will not change the port toUnlocked-enabled.In another example, if the circuit size is smaller than the port, CTC will not change the port service state fromUnlocked-enabledtoLocked-enabled,disabled.If CTC cannot change the port service state, you must change the port service state manually.

Caution If the termination card is aDS3i-N-12,E1-N-14,E1-42orE3-12card, a roll will occur even if a valid signal is not detected on the Roll To port. The absence of aPDI-Pdownstream for loss of signal (LOS), loss of frame alignment (LOF), and alarm indication signal (AIS) line defects causes the roll to continue without a valid signal. This is only seen with DUAL roll mode when both ends of the circuit use the card(s) that are listed in this statement.

Step 17 Click Finish.

In the Circuits tab, verify that a new circuit appears. This circuit is the Roll To circuit. It is designated with the Roll From circuit name appended with ROLL**.

Step 18 Click theRolls tab. Two new rolls now appear. For each pending roll, view the Roll Valid Signal status. When one of the following requirements is met, continue withStep 19.

If the Roll Valid Signal status is true, a valid signal was found on the new port.

If the Roll Valid Signal status is false, a valid signal was not found. Wait until the signal is found before continuing with the next step. If a valid signal is not found, refer to the

Cisco ONS 15454 SDH Troubleshooting Guide. To cancel the roll, see the “DLP-D240 Cancel a Roll” task on page 19-44.

The roll is a one-waydestination roll and the Roll Valid signal status is false. It is not possible to get a Roll Valid Signal status of true for aone-waydestination roll.

Note If you have completed a roll, you cannot cancel the sibling roll. You must cancel the two rolls together.

Note You cannot cancel an automatic roll after a valid signal is found.

A roll can be forced onto the Roll To Circuit destination without a valid signal by using the

Force Valid Signal button. If you choose Force Valid Signal, traffic on the circuit that is involved in the roll will be dropped when the roll is completed.

Step 19 If you selected Manual inStep 5, click both rolls on the Rolls tab and clickComplete to route the traffic to the new port. If you selected Auto, continue withStep 20.

Note You cannot complete a roll if you cancelled the sibling roll. You must complete the two rolls together.

DLPD237 Roll Two Cross-Connectson One Optical Circuit Using Manual Routing

Step 13 Set the circuit path protection:

To route the circuit on a protected path, leave Fully Protected Path checked and continue withStep 14.

To create an unprotected circuit, uncheck Fully Protected Path and continue withStep 15.

Step 14 If you checked Fully Protected Path, choose one of the following:

Nodal Diversity Required—Ensuresthat the primary and alternate paths within the SNCP portions of the complete circuit path are nodally diverse.

Nodal Diversity Desired—Specifiesthat node diversity is preferred, but if node diversity is not possible, CTC createsfiber-diversepaths for the SNCP portion of the complete circuit path.

Link Diversity Only—Specifiesthat onlyfiber-diverseprimary and alternate paths for SNCP portions of the complete circuit path are needed. The paths might benode-diverse,but CTC does not check for node diversity.

Step 15 ClickNext. Beneath Route Review and Edit, node icons appear for you to route the circuit manually.

The green arrows pointing from the source node to other network nodes indicate spans that are available for routing the circuit.

Step 16 Complete the “DLP-D98 Provision a High-Order Circuit Route” task on page 17-96, or the “DLP-D3 Provision a Low-Order VC12 Circuit Route” task on page 17-2.

Caution The following is only seen with DUAL roll mode when both ends of the circuit use the card(s) mentioned in this statement. If the termination card is aDS3i-N-12,E1-N-14,E1-42orE3-12card, a roll will occur even if a valid signal is not detected on the Roll To port. The absence of aPDI-Pdownstream for LOS, LOF, and AIS line defects causes the roll to continue without a valid signal.

Step 17 ClickFinish. In the Circuits tab, verify that a new circuit appears.

This circuit is the Roll To circuit. It is designated with the Roll From circuit name appended with ROLL**.

Step 18 Click theRolls tab. Two new rolls now appear on the Rolls tab. For each pending roll, view the Roll Valid Signal status. When one of the following conditions is met, continue withStep 19.

If the Roll Valid Signal status is true, a valid signal was found on the new port.

If the Roll Valid Signal status is false, a valid signal was not found. Wait until the signal is found before continuing with the next step. If the signal is not found, refer to the Circuits and Timing section of the Cisco ONS 15454 SDH Troubleshooting Guide. To cancel the roll, see the“DLP-D240 Cancel a Roll” task on page 19-44.

The roll is a one-waydestination roll and the Roll Valid signal status is false. It is not possible to get a Roll Valid Signal status of true for aone-waydestination roll.

Note You cannot cancel an automatic roll after a valid signal is found.

A roll can be forced onto the Roll To Circuit destination without a valid signal by using the

Force Valid Signal button. If you choose Force Valid Signal, traffic on the circuit that is involved in the roll will be dropped when the roll is completed.

Step 19 If you selected Manual inStep 5, click each roll and clickComplete to route the traffic to the new port. If you selected Auto, continue withStep 20.

Step 2 Click the Provisioning> Network > Generaltabs.

Step 3 Complete the following information in the fields listed:

IP Address—Typethe IP address assigned to the ONS 15454 SDH node.

Note If TCC2P cards are installed, secure mode is available. When secure mode is off (sometimes called repeater mode), the IP address entered in the IP Address field applies to the TCC2PRJ-45TCP/IP (LAN) port. When secure mode is on, the IP Address field shows the address assigned to theMIC-C/T/PLAN port, and the Superuser can enable or disable display of theMIC-C/T/PIP address. See the“DLP-D84 Enable Node Secure Mode” task on page 17-77 as needed. Refer to the “Management Network Connectivity” chapter in the

Cisco ONS 15454 SDH Reference Manual for more information about secure mode.

Suppress CTC IP Display—Selectthis check box if you want to prevent the node IP address from being displayed in CTC to users with Provisioner, Maintenance, or Retrieve security levels. (The IP address suppression is not applied to users with Superuser security level.)

LCD IP Display—Chooseone of the following:

Allow Configuration—(Default)Displays the node IP on the front panel LCD and allows it to be changed using the ONS 15454 SDH LCD. This option enables the“DLP-D64 Set the IP Address, Default Router, and Network Mask Using the LCD” task on page 17-53.

Display Only—Displaysthe node IP address on the front panel LCD but does not allow it to be changed.

Suppress Display—Suppressesthe node IP address display on the front panel LCD.

Default Router—Ifthe ONS 15454 SDH 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 SDH cannot directly access. This field is ignored if any of the following are true:

The ONS 15454 SDH is not connected to a LAN.

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

Open Shortest Path First (OSPF) is enabled on both the ONS 15454 SDH and the LAN where the ONS 15454 SDH is connected.

Forward DHCP Request ToSelectthis check box to enable DHCP. Also, enter the DHCP server IP address in the Request To field. The box is unchecked by default. If you will enable any of the gateway settings to implement the ONS 15454 SDH proxy server features, leave this field blank.

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

MAC Address—(Displayonly) Displays the ONS 15454 SDH IEEE 802 MAC address.

Note In secure mode, the Ethernet ports are assigned different MAC addresses, and theMIC-C/T/PLAN information can be hidden or revealed by a Superuser.

Net/Subnet Mask Length—Typethe 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 SDH nodes in the same subnet.

TCC CORBA (IIOP) Listener Port—Setsthe ONS 15454 SDH IIOP listener port used to communicate between the ONS 15454 SDH and CTC computers. This field is generally not changed unless the ONS 15454 SDH resides behind a firewall that requires a different port. See the“NTP-D27 Set Up the ONS 15454 SDH for Firewall Access” procedure on page 4-8 for more information.

Gateway Settings—ProvisionsONS 15454 SDH SOCK proxy server features. Do not select any of these options until you review the SOCKS proxy server scenario in the “Management Network Connectivity” chapter in theCisco ONS 15454 SDH Reference Manual. In proxy server networks, the ONS 15454 SDH is either an ENE, a GNE, or a SOCKSproxy-onlyserver. Provisioning must be consistent for each network element (NE) type.

Enable proxy server on port—Ifchecked, the ONS 15454 SDH serves as a proxy for connections between CTC clients and ONS 15454 SDH nodes that are connected by DCCs to the proxy ONS 15454 SDH. The CTC client establishes connections toDCC-connectednodes through the

proxy node. The CTC client does not require IP connectivity to the DCC-connectednodes, only to the proxy ONS 15454 SDH. If Enable SOCKS proxy server on port is off, 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)—Choosethis option when the ONS 15454 SDH 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 CRAFT or LAN 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/WAN that those nodes might be connected to.

Gateway Network Element (GNE)—Choosethis option when the ONS 15454 SDH 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 theDCC-connectednodes and any CTC computers connected to them is prevented from reaching the LAN.

SOCKS Proxy-Only—Choosethis option when the ONS 15454 SDH is connected to a LAN and the LAN is separated from the node by a firewall. The SOCKS Proxy Only is the same as the GNE option, except the SOCKS Proxy Only option does not isolate the DCC network from the LAN.

Step 4 Click Apply.

Step 5 ClickYes in the confirmation dialog box.

Both TCC2/TCC2P cards reboot, one at a time. During this time (approximately 5 minutes), the active and standby TCC2/TCC2P card LEDs go through the cycle shown in Table 19-4.Eventually, a “Lost node connection, switching to network view” message appears.

Step 1 In node view, click theProvisioning >Network >OSPF tabs.

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

DCC/GCC OSPF Area ID Table—Enterthe number that identifies the ONS 15454 SDH nodes as a unique OSPF area ID entered in dotted decimal format. It can be any number between 000.000.000.000 and 255.255.255.255. The number must be unique to the LAN OSPF area.

RS-DCCMetric—Thisvalue is normally not changed. It sets a cost for sending packets across theregenerator-sectionDCC(RS-DCC),which is used by OSPF routers to calculate the shortest path. This value should always be higher than the LAN metric. The defaultRS-DCCmetric is 100.

MS-DCCMetric—Setsa cost for sending packets across the multiplex section DCC(MS-DCC).This value should always be lower than theRS-DCCmetric. The defaultMS-DCCmetric is 33. It is usually not changed.

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

OSPF active on LAN—Whenchecked, enables the ONS 15454 SDH OSPF topology to be advertised to OSPF routers on the LAN. Enable this field on ONS 15454 SDH nodes that directly connect to OSPF routers.

Step 5 Provision the OSPF priority and interval settings:

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

Router Priority—Selectsthe designated router for a subnet.

Hello Interval (sec)—Setsthe number of seconds between OSPF hello packet advertisements sent by OSPF routers. Ten seconds is the default.

Dead Interval—Setsthe 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)—Indicatesthe service speed. One second is the default.

Retransmit Interval (sec)—Setsthe time that will elapse before a packet is resent. Five seconds is the default.

LAN Metric—Setsa cost for sending packets across the LAN. This value should always be lower than the 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 SDH in the ONS 15454 SDH 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 SDH OSPF area.

a.Under OSPF Area Range Table, click Create.

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

Range Address—Enterthe area IP address for the ONS 15454 SDH nodes that reside within the OSPF area. For example, if the ONS 15454 SDH 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—Enterthe OSPF area ID for the ONS 15454 SDH 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—Enterthe subnet mask length. In the Range Address example, this is 16.

Advertise—Checkif 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 SDH 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 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 SDH OSPF area.

Neighbor—Therouter ID of the Area 0 router.

Transit Delay (sec)—Theservice speed. One second is the default.

Hello Int (sec)—Thenumber of seconds between OSPF hello packet advertisements sent by OSPF routers. Ten seconds is the default.

Auth Type—Ifthe router where the ONS 15454 SDH is connected uses authentication, choose

Simple Password. Otherwise, choose No Authentication.

DLPD264 Provision a J1 Path Trace on Circuit Source and Destination Ports

Note If neither port is on a transmit/receive card, you will not be able to complete this procedure. If one port is on a transmit/receive card and the other is on areceive-onlycard, you can set up the transmit string at the transmit/receive port and the receive string at thereceive-onlyport, but you will not be able to transmit in both directions.

Step 4 Choose the VC3 or VC4 circuit you want to trace, then clickEdit.

Step 5 If you chose a VCAT circuit, complete the following. If not, continue withStep 6.

a.In the Edit Circuit window, click the Members tab.

b.Click Edit Member and continue withStep 6.

Step 6 In the Edit Circuit window, click theShow Detailed Map check box at the bottom of the window. A detailed map of the source and destination ports appears.

Step 7 Provision the circuit source transmit string:

a.On the detailed circuit map, right-clickthe circuit source port (the square on the left or right of the source node icon) and chooseEdit J1 Path Trace (port) from the shortcut menu.

b.Choose the format of the transmit string by clicking either the 16 byte or the64 byte selection button.

c.In the New Transmit String field, enter the circuit source transmit string. Enter a string that makes the source port easy to identify, such as the node IP address, node name, circuit name, or another string. If the New Transmit String field is left blank, the J1 transmits a string of null characters.

d.Click Apply, then clickClose.

Step 8 Provision the circuit destination transmit string:

a.On the detailed circuit map, right-clickthe circuit destination port and chooseEdit Path Trace from the shortcut menu.

b.In the New Transmit String field, enter the string that you want the circuit destination to transmit. Enter a string that makes the destination port easy to identify, such as the node IP address, node name, circuit name, or another string. If the New Transmit String field is left blank, the J1 transmits a string of null characters.

c.Click Apply.

Step 9 Provision the circuit destination expected string:

a.In the Circuit Path Trace window, enable the path trace expected string by choosing Auto orManual from the Path Trace Modedrop-downlist:

Auto—Thefirst string received from the source port is automatically provisioned as the current expected string. An alarm is raised when a string that differs from the baseline is received.

Manual—Thestring entered in Current Expected String is the baseline. An alarm is raised when a string that differs from the Current Expected String is received.

b.If you set the Path Trace Mode field to Manual, enter the string that the circuit destination should receive from the circuit source in the New Expected String field. If you set Path Trace Mode to Auto, skip this step.

c.Click the Disable AIS and RDI if TIM-P is detected check box if you want to suppress the AIS and remote defect indication (RDI) when the VC3 or VC4High-OrderPath Trace Identifier Mismatch(HP-TIM)orLow-OrderPath Trace Identifier Mismatch(LP-TIM)alarm appears. Refer to theCisco ONS 15454 SDH Troubleshooting Guide for descriptions of alarms and conditions.

e.Click Apply, then clickClose.

Note It is not necessary to set the format (16 or 64 bytes) for the circuit destination expected string; the path trace process automatically determines the format.

Step 10 Provision the circuit source expected string:

a.In the Edit Circuit window (with Show Detailed Map chosen), right-clickthe circuit source port and chooseEdit Path Trace from the shortcut menu.

b.In the Circuit Path Trace window, enable the path trace expected string by choosing Auto orManual from the Path Trace Modedrop-downlist:

Auto—Usesthe first string received from the port at the other path trace end as the current expected string. An alarm is raised when a string that differs from the baseline is received.

Manual—Usesthe Current Expected String field as the baseline string. An alarm is raised when a string that differs from the Current Expected String is received.

c.If you set the Path Trace Mode field to Manual, enter the string that the circuit source should receive from the circuit destination in the New Expected String field. If you set Path Trace Mode to Auto, skip this step.

d.Click the Disable AIS and RDI if TIM-P is detected check box if you want to suppress the AIS and RDI when the VC3 or VC4HP-TIMorLP-TIMalarm appears. Refer to the

Cisco ONS 15454 SDH Troubleshooting Guide for descriptions of alarms and conditions.

e.(Check box visibility depends on card selection) Click the Disable AIS on C2 Mis-Match check box if you want to suppress the AIS when a C2 mismatch occurs.

f.Click Apply.

Note It is not necessary to set the format (16 or 64 bytes) for the circuit source expected string; the path trace process automatically determines the format.

Step 11 After you set up the path trace, the received string appears in the Received field on the path trace setup window. The following options are available:

Click Hex Mode to display path trace in hexadecimal format. The button name changes to ASCII Mode. Click it to return the path trace to ASCII format.

Click Reset to reread values from the port.

Click Default to return to the path trace default settings (Path Trace Mode is set to Off and the New Transmit and New Expected Strings are null).

Caution Clicking Default generates alarms if the port on the other end is provisioned with a different string.

The expect and receive strings are updated every few seconds whether the Path Trace Mode field is set to Auto or Manual.
