Problem
Description

Avoidance Measures

Compared with earlier


versions, the mapping
between PHB and DSCP is
updated from the
BSC6810V200R011
version. Please check the
mapping between the PHB
and DSCP before upgrade.

You should ensure that the mapping between the PHB and
DSCP value in all TRMMAP tables is on one-to-one basis.
1. Before upgrading the BSC6810V200R010C01B061 or its
patch versions to current version, run the MML command LST
IPPATH to check whether the IP paths of HQ_QOSPATH or
LQ_QOSPATH exist. If they exist, you should check the
mapping between the PHB and the DSCP value. If they do not
exist, skip the following operations.
2. Before the upgrade, ensure that the mapping between the
PHB and the DSCP is unique. Run the LST TRMMAP to
check if the transport resource mapping is set. If not, skip the
following operations. If yes, run the LST TRMMAP and LST
DEFAULTTRMMAP commands separately to check the
mapping between the PHB and the DSCP in the TRM mapping
(TRMMAP) or default TRM mapping (DEFAULTTRMMAP).
The PHB (value range: BE, AF11-AF43, EF) and DSCP (value
range: 0-63) should be strictly and correctly mapped.
If the DSCP value corresponding to some PHBs in some
TRMMAP tables is inconsistent with that corresponding to the
PHBs in other TRMMAP tables, run the MML command
MOD TRMMAP to change the DSCP value according to the
least modification principle. The least modification principle
indicates that the data should be modified as little as possible to
meet the requirement for the upgrade. For example, if the
DSCP value corresponding to EF in most TRMMAP tables is
46 but that in some TRMMAP tables is 47, you should change
the DSCP value from 47 to 46.
If the DSCP value corresponding to some PHBs in some
DEFAULTTRMMAP tables is inconsistent with that
corresponding to PHBs in other DEFAULTTRMMAP tables,
run the MML command SET DEFAULTTRMMAP or MOD
TRMMAP to change the DSCP value accordingly. For
example, besides the DEFAULTTRMMMAP, two TRMMAPs
are configured: TRMMAP1 and TRMMAP2. In TRMMAP1,
the DSCP value corresponding to EF is 46, which is the same
as the DSCP value corresponding to EF in the
DEFAULTTRMMMAP. The DSCP value corresponding to EF
in TRMMAP2, however, is 47. In this situation, the DSCP
value corresponding to EF in TRMMAP2 should be changed to
46.

Description

Avoidance Measures

Compared with earlier


versions, the mapping
between IP path and DSCP
is updated from the
BSC6810V200R011
version. Please check the
mapping between the IP
Path and DSCP before
the upgrade.

1. Before the upgrade, ensure that the DSCP values of one-type


IP paths of are the same.
Before the upgrade, ensure that the IP path and the DSCP are
strictly and correctly mapped. Run the MML command LST
IPPATH to check the mapping between the IP path and DSCP.
If the DSCP value corresponding to some IP paths is
inconsistent with that corresponding to other IP paths of the
same type, run the MML command MOD IPPATH to change
the DSCP value according to the least modification principle.
2. If the DSCP value corresponding to the IP path over the Iub
interface at the RNC is changed, you should run the MML
commands RMV IPPATH and ADD IPPATH to make the
corresponding change on the NodeB.
For example, there are three IP paths of the XXX type, namely,
IPPATH 1, IPPATH 2, and IPPATH 3. The DSCP value of
IPPATH 1 and IPPATH 2 is 46, but the DSCP value of IPPATH
3 is 47. You should change the DSCP value from 47 to 46 in
IPPATH 3, and run the MML commands RMV IPPATH and
ADD IPPATH to make change in the NodeB.

Compared with earlier


versions, the bandwidth of
AAL2 path and VP is
updated from the
BSC6810V200R011
version. Please check the
bandwidth of AAL2 paths
and VP before upgrade.

1. Run the MML command LST AAL2PATH to check


whether there are AAL2 paths in VP bearer mode. If there are
ALL2 paths in VP bearer mode, go to the next step.
2. Check whether the service type of the transmission traffic
index and reception traffic index of the AAL2 Path is CBR/RT
VBR/NRT VBR. If yes, go to the next step.
3. Check whether the peak cell throughput of index of the
AAL2 path is greater than the forward bandwidth and
backward bandwidth of the VP. If yes, go to the next step.
4. Run the MML command ADD ATMTRF to add a new
traffic index. The service type of the new traffic index should
be the same as that of the transmission traffic index and
reception traffic index of the AAL2 path. The peak cell
throughput of the index should not be greater than that of the
VP.
5. Run the MML command MOD AAL2PATH to change the
transmission traffic index and reception traffic index of the
AAL2 path to the new traffic index to ensure that the
transmission traffic index and reception traffic index are not
greater than the bandwidth of the VP.

Problem
Description

Avoidance Measures

During the process the


RNC is upgraded, the
M2000 automatically
deletes the EMS IP
address, and fails to add it.
Thus, the EMS IP address
may be lost after the
upgrade, and the NodeB
fails to be maintained on
the M2000 client.

To avoid the possible loss of the EMS IP address, do as


follows:
1. Before the upgrade, log in to the RNC through the LMT, run
the MML command LST EMSIP, and then record the
displayed EMS IP address.
2. After the upgrade is completed, log in to the RNC through
the LMT, run the MML command LST EMSIP to query
whether the EMS IP address exists. If the EMS IP address does
not exist, run the MML command ADD EMSIP to add the
recorded EMS IP address manually.

For detailed avoidance measures of abnormity, see the upgrade client on-line FAQ.

4.1 Starting the Upgrade Client


This document provides two upgrade methods: through the M2000 and through the upgrade
client. You are advised to perform the upgrade operations through the M2000. You can also
perform the upgrade operations through the upgrade client when the M2000 does not work
normally. The differences between the two methods are described as follows:

When the NE is upgraded through the M2000, the required files are uploaded through
the M2000, and then the upgrade client is started.

BSC6900 V900R012C01
Upgrade Guide

4 Upgrade Operations

When the NE is upgraded through the upgrade client, the BSC to be upgraded is added to
the upgrade client, and the required files are uploaded to the BSC through the upgrade
client.

4.1.1 Starting the Upgrade Client Through the M2000

If upgrade from the BSC6000 to the V900R012C01, start the upgrade client through the
M2000 and then upload the installation package to the NE through the upgrade client.
Otherwise, you need to upload the installation package to the M2000 server and download
the installation package from the M2000 server to the NE before starting the upgrade
client through the M2000.

The versions earlier than the BSC6000V900R008C01B051SP24 do not support upgrade


through the M2000.

Step 1 Start the M2000 client.


Step 2 In the case of upgrade from BSC6810V200R011C00SPC100 or its patch, you need to set the
RNC as an FTP server on the M2000.

5 Post-Upgrade Verification
Post-upgrade verification involves the NE health check and service verification. The NE
health check detects the radio resources and operating status of the NE system, and the service
verification checks whether NE services are provided properly after the upgrade.

5.1 Post-Upgrade NE Health Check


The post-upgrade health check on the network is used to determine whether the upgrade
succeeds. The report of the post-upgrade health check is compared with that of the preupgrade health check to indicate the difference between the operating status of the upgraded
NE and its original status.

5.1.1 Performing the Post-Ugrade NE Health Check


For details on how to perform the health check on the network after the upgrade, see section
3.2"Performing the NE Health Check".

5.1.2 Comparing the Report of the Post-Upgrade Health Check with


That of the Pre-Upgrade Health Check
Step 1 Choose Maintenance > NE Health Check from the menu bar on the M2000 client.
Step 2 Click Compare. The Compare Reports dialog box is displayed.
Step 3 In the Report1 box, select the task name of the NE health check before the upgrade from the Task
drop-down list box. In the Report2 box, select the task name of the NE health check after the
upgrade from the Task drop-down list box.
Step 4 In the Report1 and Report2 boxes, select Report Generation Time.
Step 5 Click Compare to compare the report on NE health check before the upgrade with that on NE
health check after the upgrade.
Step 6 After the comparison is complete, the Save dialog box is displayed. Select a path for saving
the comparison report on the PC. View the comparison report, and then find out the
differences of the NE status before and after the upgrade.

5.2.2 Verifying Services Through the M2000


You can verify the NE services through the M2000: compare the values of the KPIs reported
by the NE every five minutes with the standard values and the historical values of the KPIs to
determine whether the NE services are normal. The operation steps are as follows:
Step 1 On the M2000 client, choose Maintenance > Task Management. A window is displayed.
Click New at the right hand bottom corner for the new task. The New Task dialog box is
displayed.
Step 2 Enter the task name in the Task Name box, select Upgrade Checking in the Task Type box,
and click Next. A dialog box is displayed.
Step 3 Set the Start Time to Run At Once and click Next.
Step 4 Select the NE whose services are to be upgraded, the Object type (You can select counters of
different object types. Select the object type in order, and select all the counters of the object
type), and Upgrade time (which is used to calculate the history counters), as shown in Figure
1.1. The Upgrade time refers to the time when the upgrade execution is finished. You can find
out when the upgrade execution is finished in the report obtained in Step 5 of section
4.4"Performing Upgrade."

Step 5 Click Finish. The Task Management window is returned. The M2000 automatically verifies
the NE services according to the upgrade time.
The service verification generally takes 30 minutes.

Step 7 Double-click an Object Name in the Counters Info box. result. The Detail dialog box is
displayed. In the Detail dialog box, view the detailed result of the NE service verification,
including the current value, the historical value, the standard value, and the result.

Current value: The result of the counter that is reported by the NE.

Historical value: The average value of the counters that are collected in the same period seven days
before the upgrade. The period starts from one hour before the service verification starts. For
example, the service verification starts from 12:00 2009-2-11, then the historical value is the average
value of the counters that are collected from 12:00 to 13:00 each day from 2009-2-4 to 2009-2-10.

Standard value: The reference value according to which the result of the counter is determined
correct or not.

If there is any counter that does not meet the standard value, contact Huawei for technical support.

Step 8 After the NE service verification is complete, a message reading "Task run successfully.
Please save the report" is displayed in the Summary Info box. Click Save Log to save the
result of the service verification to the local PC for future use.
