To start the integration on-site, the following conditions must be met:

8 45/1553-LZA 701 6014/1-V1 Uen V | 2018-08-07


Node Integration Scenarios

— The configuration files are prepared.

— The node hardware and power supply are installed according to the
instructions in Install RBS or Install Baseband.

The operational optical indicator is flashing slowly, at 0.5 Hz.

— Connection to at least two NTP servers with correct time of day


synchronization is available.

— OSS PKI services are available in accordance with the instructions from OSS.

— For the Auto Integration procedure, a network infrastructure must exist to set
up a private network connection to the OSS site.

— The DHCP server is available.

Depending on DHCP configuration, DNS is required.

The DHCP server should provide the trusted network configuration to the
node and it can provide the AIWS and security gateway IP addresses to a
different server.

In case of Zero Touch integration over untrusted networks, the DHCP can
provide the IP address of the security gateway.

For Baseband nodes, the NTP server configuration needs to be in the DHCP
configuration.

Note: Due to prioritization towards trusted networks, the AIWS IP address


is taken from a DHCP server in case any is present.

— The SMRS server is available.

— The AIWS server is available.

— The Site Installation file is available on the AIWS server.

— The following files are available on the SMRS server:


— RBS Summary File

Manage Integration

Note: For more information about Network Loader versions and the
update procedure, see Upgrade Network Loader.

RELATED INFORMATION

3. Configuration Files on page 16

2.3.4.1 Network Loader Upgrade with EGIS

In case available, the Network Loader tries to reach the EGIS server to find a
newer Network Loader version and to find the IP of a security gateway and
AIWS server. The Network Loader upgrades and restarts to the new Network
Loader version automatically when one is available.

Note: In case the node finds the EGIS server with a newer Network Loader
version, it upgrades in both untrusted and trusted cases.

To get the Network Loader automatically downloaded from EGIS, NL must have
the following protocols and interfaces available:

— DHCP to obtain IP address, Gateway IP address, and DNS address for the IP
network. This IP address data can be used for the inner or outer network.

— HTTPS is used for communication with EGIS to get the basic data, like
security gateway IP address. This is done on the IP address obtained from
DHCP.

— SFTP is used to get a new Network Loader from a fileserver connected to


EGIS, if the operator so has ordered. FTPS is considered for future releases.

— IPsec is used to open a secure transport connection to the security gateway


and the internal network where the AIWS and SMRS is. The available ciphers
are the default IPsec ciphers. For information on default IPsec ciphers, see
Manage IPsec.

— RBS must use HTTPS to transfer Network Loader.

In case the IP address of the security gateway or the AIWS is missing on the
EGIS server, the node uses the IP address received from the DHCP server or the
DNS server. The node searches for the AIWS and security gateway IP addresses
on EGIS first. In case one of them is missing, it searches in the DHCP server and
proceeds as follows:
— The DHCP server provides the IP address of the security gateway. The node
runs untrusted case.

— The DHCP server cannot provide the IP address of the security gateway but
provides the AIWS IP address. The node runs trusted case.

10 45/1553-LZA 701 6014/1-V1 Uen V | 2018-08-07


Node Integration Scenarios

Both IP addresses are still missing after searching in the DHCP server. The node
proceeds to search in the DNS server for the missing IP addresses as follows:
— The DNS server provides the IP address of the security gateway. The node
runs untrusted case.

— The DNS server cannot provide the IP address of the security gateway but
provides the AIWS IP address. The node runs trusted case.

In case both addresses are still missing after searching the DHCP and DNS
servers, the node proceeds to the next VLAN.

Figure 1 shows how the node decides to run untrusted or trusted case depending
on the availability of the AIWS and security gateway IP addresses.

Additional Information

4 Additional Information

This section describes details about the progress information and actions to take
during deviations from the procedures.

4.1 Progress Information


The integration progress data is stored in the AutoIntegration Log. During
download of the configuration files, the progress data can be followed in the
AutoIntegration Log area in the Autointegration web GUI. During this time, the
AutoIntegration log can also be exported from the web GUI by clicking the
Export Autointegration log button.

After the restart, the log can be exported and viewed. Use a node management
tool. For more information, see Manage Software.

4.2 Fault Handling


If there is a configuration file error and 2 hours has passed without a successful
logon, the node is reset to initial start state and an ESI package is generated. To
determine why the integration has failed, the ESI can be sent to Ericsson for
analysis.

The EA interface can be used to generate and export the ESI. For information on
how to generate and export the ESI from EA, see Data Collection Guideline.

The EA interface can also be used to manually set the node to the initial start
state before 2 hours has passed.

Note: If several Restore Board actions are triggered in a row, the logs are
deleted.

To set the node to state initial start from EA:

Steps

1. Connect the computer to the LMT port.


See Connect Client for more information.

2. Start a web browser.

3. Disable any proxies in the web browser.

4. Enter the https://169.254.2.2/ea.html address of the EA.
