1. INTRODUCTION

1.1. MAINTENANCE STRATEGY


T::DAX maintenance is based on the following T::DAX features:

Problem detection and reporting with built-in diagnostics


Automatic generation of appropriate alarms
Automatic or manual switching to backup units
Replacement of defective units without service interruption
Work around to clear trouble
In addition, T::DAX includes visual indicators to support on-site maintenance. These
include blown fuse indications and out-of-service module indications. Visual indicators
enable on-site personnel to quickly locate a defective unit for quick replacement.

1.2. ROUTINE MAINTENANCE


T::DAX is engineered so that very little routine maintenance is required. Routine
maintenance consists of:
Cleaning the tape heads in the tape drive
Replacing fan filters
Changing the tape on the tape drive
Note: The frequency of these actions is site-specific since it is
determined by the frequency of T::DAX use. Contact your system
administrator for recommended schedules for the maintenance activities.

T::DAX Maintenance Manual Cat. No. 7979-71080-22
Issue 3, June 2003

1.3. T::DAX DIAGNOSTICS AND TROUBLE REPORTING


T::DAX diagnostics run automatically without interfering with normal operations. In
most cases, the diagnostics can isolate the problem to the replaceable module. If the
specific module cannot be identified, T::DAX reports suspected trouble sources to aid
manual troubleshooting.
When the diagnostics detect a problem, T::DAX reports the problem and suspected
source. If service will not be affected, T::DAX automatically takes the suspected unit out
of service and, if necessary, activates the protection or duplex unit. The defective unit
can then be replaced without affecting normal T::DAX operations. If the replacement
unit passes diagnostics, T::DAX automatically puts the unit in service.
You can also run diagnostics on an out-of-service unit on command. T::DAX runs the
diagnostics and reports the results.

1.4. ALARM GENERATION AND CONTROL


T::DAX generates the following types of alarms:

Critical alarms for failures causing a loss of service on more than 5 DS1, E1,
VT1.5, VT2, VC11 or VC12 cross-connects.
Major alarms for failures causing a loss of service on any single port, tributary or
cross-connect.
Major processor alarms for control system failures that disable the control
capability.
Minor alarm for failures that do not affect service.

T::DAX reports these alarms in the following ways:


Alarm indicators on the TAIC front panel
Alarm messages are sent over the CIT and DTM interface links
Alarm indications are sent to central office audible and visual alarm systems and
E-telemetry systems.
An audible cutoff (ACO) feature is included for silencing audible alarms and switching
visual alarm indicators to an "alarm acknowledged" state. T::DAX includes a front-panel
mounted ACO switch and connections for remote ACO control.

Issue 3, June 2003

1.5. MAINTENANCE COMMANDS


The T::DAX command set includes the following types of maintenance commands:
RTRV-COND-EQPT command displays the current condition of the equipment
unit.
RMV-EQPT command removes the specified unit from service and places it in
the maintenance state. This command must be executed before running diagnostics
or removal of unit.
DGN-EQPT command runs a diagnostics routine on the specified equipment.
RST-EQPT command restores a specified unit to service, switching it from the
maintenance state to the in-service state.

1.6. AUTOMATIC SWITCHING TO BACKUP UNITS


T::DAX includes protection or duplex modules for T::DAX equipment.
• ISU and TSU modules have one “redundant” unit used as protection for all other
TSU and ISU modules.
• E3/DS3/STS1 interface cards have one protection card per shelf.

1.7. MODULE REPLACEMENT


The primary maintenance strategy for T::DAX is module replacement. In all cases
(except for DS1/E1 cards), modules can easily be replaced without affecting operation of
T::DAX. Module replacement consists of the following steps:
1. Check that the module is in maintenance state and out-of-service.
2. Physically remove the module from the system.
3. Install a replacement module in the system.
4. Return the module to its normal in-service state.

With the diagnostics feature turned on, the state changes are done automatically if the
change is not service affecting. This makes module replacement quick and easy.

1.8. SYSTEM RECOVERY


System recovery is an initialization of processor-equipped T::DAX modules. You can
perform the following types of system recovery:
A warm start is initialization with a “valid” database. A warm start initializes
individual modules, such as the ACP, AMU, CDU, DSU, SCU, TCU, MCU, ECU,
OCU, RCU, NCU or TPDR. A warm start saves cross-connect and PM data.
The database is valid after the following command is performed:
INIT-SYS::AMU:ctag::0;
A cold start is an initialization with a “non-valid” database. A cold start is
performed when the T::DAX is powered up, or by plugging out the AMU,
disconnecting the battery jumper and plugging out the two ACPs.

1.9. TECHNICAL SUPPORT


Enavis Networks Ltd. offers a full range of support services for T::DAX, including:
Remote trouble diagnosis
Software and documentation updates
Telephone assistance, including 24-hour availability of technical personnel.
Enavis Networks Ltd. offers a range of service plans to T::DAX customers. Contact your
system administrator for details about specific product support services available.

2.2. LOG INTO T::DAX


Note: If your T::DAX is part of an Operations Support System, use the login instructions
in your OSS manuals. The instructions in the following paragraphs are not for OSS
applications.
To operate T::DAX you must establish communications with T::DAX and log in. You
can use a variety of user/system interface (USI) devices to communicate with T::DAX.
Since, in most cases, the USI device is a video terminal, this section uses the term "video
terminal" instead of "USI device". You can use any VT100-compatible video terminal
with T::DAX.
During normal operation, you communicate with T::DAX through a communications port
on the T::DAX Communication Processor Module (CPR). The CPR contains four
asynchronous RS-232C ports, one X.25 port and one TCP/IP port. The RS-232C ports
provide direct access or connect to modems at the T::DAX site.
How you connect your video terminal to T::DAX depends on the configuration of your
system. T::DAX supports the following:
Direct RS-232 cable connections
Dial-up connections using modems
Private line connections
X.25 connection
TCP/IP connection
The procedure for establishing a connection to T::DAX depends on the equipment and
connection types used in your system. Contact your system administrator if you need
connection instructions.
The Admin shelf Interface and Control unit (AIC/TAIC) contain a Craft Interface
Terminal (CIT) connector on the front panel and a DTM port (DTM-1) on the rear for
emergency operation of T::DAX by trained maintenance personnel. However, the
terminal can be used by local craft for normal operation of T::DAX. The T::DAX
Maintenance Manual contains instructions for using the terminal with T::DAX.
To operate T::DAX, you must log-in with your user ID and password. Your system
administrator assigns user IDs and passwords. If you do not know your user ID or
password, contact your system administrator. Use the following procedure to log-into
T::DAX.

2-2 ECI Telecom Ltd.


Cat. No. 7979-71080-22 T::DAX Maintenance Manual
Issue 3, June 2003

Step Logging into T::DAX


1 Establish communication with T::DAX. (The procedure for this depends on the
configuration of your system.)
2 When the Admin shelf powers up, after a cold reset, the Login is allowed from
the CIT and DTM-1 ports only. Only after the first Login the communication
with the CPR's ports, DTM-A-1 through DTM-A-4, is allowed. After the Login,
the Login screen will appear as follows:

NOTICE: This is a private computer system.


Unauthorized use or access may lead to prosecution.
UID: = User Identification
PID: = Password
DATE: = Date (format YY-MM-DD) – optional
TIME: = Time of Day (format HH-MM) – optional

Contact your system administrator to obtain your UID and PID.


After entering the proper data in the above fields, T::DAX will automatically
revert to TL1 mode of operation.
If this is the first time the PID is being used, T::DAX will force the user to
change the
PID before proceeding. This is to ensure password privacy.

T::DAX Maintenance Manual Cat. No. 7979-71080-22
Issue 3, June 2003

2.3. LOG OUT OF T::DAX


You must log-out when you are finished operating T::DAX. This terminates your user
session and clears the port for use by other T::DAX operators.

Note: T::DAX has an inactivity log-out feature that keeps track of periods of no activity
at your terminal. T::DAX uses this feature to make sure you do not tie up a port by
forgetting to log off. If the period of inactivity exceeds a preset time-out, T::DAX
automatically logs you off. The time-out period can be set for up to 60 minutes. The
inactivity log-out re can also be turned off. For information about time-out settings,
contact your system administrator.

Step Logging out of T::DAX


1 To log out of T::DAX, enter the following command:

CANC-USER:[tid]:[uid]:ctag;

uid - your user identification code. It must match the uid used in the login.

A COMPLD message should be displayed, verifying successful log-out. If the


COMPLD message does not appear, repeat the log-out procedure or contact
your system administrator for additional instructions.

If you are connected to the CPR through a modem, the system will
automatically hang up (disconnect) the line. If you are connected through a
direct connection or private line the log out will cause the log in screen to
reappear.

2.4. CANCEL AN ENTERED COMMAND


If you have entered a command and you wish to cancel it, you can stop the command. If
you cancel the command, T::DAX does the following:

If T::DAX has not begun processing the command, T::DAX does not process the
command.
If T::DAX has begun processing the command:
− For RTRV commands, the retrieval stops immediately. Data already retrieved
is displayed.
− For commands with multiple AIDs, the requested action is not done on AIDs
that have not been processed.
− For all other commands, the command cannot be canceled after T::DAX has
begun processing it. T::DAX sends the SCNA (command not aborted) error
code.

Step Canceling an Entered Command


1 To cancel an in-process command, enter the following:

ABT-CMD:[tid]::ctag::cmdctag;

cmdctag - correlation tag that was entered with the command you want to
cancel. The null string is valid here, to allow abortion of a command that was
entered without a correlation tag.
A COMPLD message should be displayed, verifying successful cancellation of
the entered command. If the COMPLD message does not appear, T::DAX
sends a DENY message with one of the following error codes:

SCNF - T::DAX did not find a command with the cmdctag you entered.
SCNA - T::DAX could not abort the command.

2.5. CHANGE PASSWORD


You should change your password at intervals recommended by your system
administrator. (User passwords are also referred to as private identifiers.) Use the
following procedure to change your password.
The system contains a built-in password-aging feature (PAGE) that will force you to
change your PID if it has not been changed during the PAGE interval.

Note: This procedure is not for setting the CIT port password. This procedure applies
only to passwords assigned to users.

Step Changing Your Password


1 Note: You must already be logged into T::DAX to change your password.
The next time you log in, you must use your new password.
To change your password, enter:

ED-SECU-PID:[tid]:uid:ctag::oldpid,newpid;

uid - your user ID.


oldpid - your current password.
newpid - your new password (effective the next time you log-into T::DAX).
After changing your password, you may want to log-out and log back in to
verify your new password.

from the T::DAX hard disk (DSU) to a remote server, and to copy program and data files
from a remote server to the T::DAX hard disk (DSU).
Use the following procedure to perform the File Transfer Protocol.

Step Backing-Up Using FTP

1 The FTP user in the T::DAX can to be define by using the command:
SET-FTP-USER:::ctag::”uid”,”pid”;
After the ctag, there are two colons and then in quotes the FTP username, a
comma, and the password in quotes. This is the how the T::DAX will login to
the FTP server
Example:
SET-FTP-USER:::ctag::”tdaxFtp”,”TDAX*3”;

2 The FTP is done in local restoration mode. To enter the local restoration mode
use the command:
STA-LOCL-RST:::ctag;

3 To copy files from the T::DAX disk, use the command:


CPY-MEM::FROMMEM=SEC,TOMEM=”<destination_ip_address>”

3.3.2. Troubleshooting Alarm or Event Messages


T::DAX generates alarm or event messages when it detects an equipment, cross-connect
or facility problem. The messages are displayed on terminals of users logged into
T::DAX. The messages are also sent to the printers (if a printer is connected to T::DAX)
and stored on the log file on the hard disk (if activated). The log file can be viewed on the
terminal or printed. The log interval can be set by a software command to store for up to
30 days.
These messages alert you to the possible need for corrective action. They contain
information that helps you locate the problem that caused the alarm. Alarm messages also
activate central office alarms that are visually shown on the AIC on the Admin shelf, on
the CO alarm system and a remote alarm system through dry contact relays.
Alarm messages begin with REPT ALM and identify problems that need immediate
attention. Event messages begin with REPT EVT and identify problems that do not
cause alarms but may require corrective action. When an alarm or event is cleared,
T::DAX reports the clearing with another REPT ALM or EVT message.
Additional important information is displayed in the “free text” field of the alarm report.
This text appears only in the Alarm/Event report and not in the response to “RTRV-
ALM” command. In order to see this text, retrieve the LOG file.

Use the following procedure to troubleshoot a problem reported by an alarm or event


message.

Step Troubleshooting an Equipment Alarm or Event Message


1 Check the message to determine if an equipment, facility, or cross-connect
failure occurred:
• REPT-ALM/EVT-EQPT is an equipment alarm or event. Continue with
step 2.
• REPT-ALM-xx (where xx = E1, E2, E3, T1, T2, T3, VT1, VT2, STS1,
STS3c, OC3, VC11, VC12, VC3, VC4, STM1, OC12 or STM4) is a facility
alarm. The alarm is not due to T::DAX equipment failure. Facility trouble-
shooting is required. Refer to the facility maintenance instructions in the
T::DAX Operation and Administration Manual.
2 Check the SRVEFF (Service Effect) field in the message for one of the
following indications:
SA - service-affecting NSA - not service-affecting

If the alarm is service affecting, immediate action is required.

T::DAX Maintenance Manual Cat. No. 7979-71080-22
Issue 3, June 2003

Step Troubleshooting an Equipment Alarm or Event Message


3 Check entries in the following fields to determine the equipment associated with
the message and the status of automatic diagnostics.
• The aid (access identifier) field at the beginning of the third line of the
message will tell you what type of equipment is involved.
• The TBLISLT (trouble isolation) field at the end of the message.
ISO = Isolated, the aid is a replaceable unit.
NIPSS = Not isolated, all diagnostics passed. The aid reports suspected
units.
NIMAN = Not isolated. Isolation must be performed manually. Suspected
units are identified in the aid.
DGN = Automatic diagnostics are in progress. Wait for a separate message
with diagnostics results.
No entry – Trouble isolation by T::DAX is not applicable to the alarm
condition.

4 Check the message CONDTYPE = field and take corrective action listed in
Table 3-1. (If corrective action clears the alarm or event, T::DAX generates an
alarm or event message. The message includes the AID of the associated
equipment and NTFCNCDE=CL.) The bay and shelf of the faulty unit are
reported in the alarm message.
5 Verify the current status of the alarm or event by entering:

RTRV-COND-EQPT:[tid]:aid:ctag;
If the response is 0 RECORDS RETRIEVED, corrective action cleared the
alarm or event.

If the response indicates an alarm condition, corrective action did not clear the
alarm or event. Repeat steps 4 and 5 for each corrective action listed in Table 3-
1 for the CONDTYPE entry.

If all listed corrective actions have been done and the alarm or event is not
cleared, technical assistance is required. Contact your system administrator or
Enavis Networks Technical Support for further instructions.

“[aid],[aidtype]:[ntfcncde],typerep [,typerepleft][,typerepright]
[srveff],[proteqpt]”<cr><lf>;

Refer to Appendix B, T::DAX I/O Messages for ntfcncde typerep, srveff and
proteqpt definitions.
2 If the equipment is In-Service (IS), place it in a Maintenance (MT) state by
using the following command:
RMV-EQPT:[tid]:aid:ctag::[mode]:[INCL=incl],[RUSURE=rusure];
mode - specifies how the specified equipment will be removed from service.
NORM - (default) Removal request will be executed only if the removal will
not cause interruption of service. Otherwise, the remove request will be denied.
FRCD - Remove request will be executed with no regard to service interruption.
incl - Confirmation field; relevant for DS1/E1 port, AMX or SMX. Enter Y to
remove even if the port or any of its tributaries is part of a red-lined connection,
subject to mode, or enter N (default) to remove only if neither the port nor any
of its tributaries is part of a red-lined connection, subject to mode.
rusure - Confirmation field; relevant for ACP and PCU types. Enter Y to
remove the equipment unconditionally, or N (default) to deny the command if
the request will remove an active processor.

3.4.3. Replace an ACP


Perform the following procedure to replace an ACP/TACP/PACP/HACP module. If the
ACP being replaced is active, you must switch the duplex ACP to the active state.
You will need the following items to perform the procedure:
T::DAX current software release component list.
T::DAX current program tape.
Phillips screwdriver.
Note: This procedure is for the replacement of the ACP as a result of a failure of the
module. For a hardware or firmware retrofit or software upgrade an alternate procedure
is required. The retrofit or upgrade procedure is detailed in the Product Change Notice
(PCN) issued for the specific retrofit or upgrade.

Step Replacing a ACP

(Refer to Section 1, Common Operating Procedures.)
2 Verify that the current system programs reside in the DSU. If in doubt, copy them
from the program tape backup into the disk, as follows:
Insert the program tape into the TPDR and enter:
CPY-MEM:[tid]:FROMMEM=AUX,TOMEM=SEC:ctag::PGM:REL=rel;
rel - current release number - three digits (for example 6.86-Q)
Note : Software should be compatible with system type:
- extension B for basic capacity system
- extension D for double capacity system
- extension Q for quad capacity system

3 If the ACP to be replaced is the standby card, continue to step 4. If the ACP to
be replaced is currently active, switch to the standby ACP by entering:
SW-DX-EQPT:[tid]:aid:ctag:::RUSURE=Y;
aid - aid of the ACP that will become active after completion of the switch.
Note : Switching to standby ACP causes the standby ACP to initialize.
The process duration depends on the system capacity and configuration
(a fully loaded Quad system may take up to 30 minutes).

Compare the stand-by ACP boot and program with the active ACP:
- Both ACP cards should have the same boot. If the stand-by ACP has
different boot, replace it with ACP card that has identical boot to the
active ACP. For additional information, please contact customer
support action line.
Both ACP should have the same program. If the stand-by ACP has differen
program, continue to step 8, otherwise continue to step 11.

Wait for a "COMPLD" response.
Then copy the programs from hard disk (SEC) to the ACP (WKG) by entering:
CPY-MEM::FROMMEM=SEC,TOMEM=WKG:ctag::PGM:REL=7.1x;

Note : When the programs are copied from the hard disk to the ACP, the
AMU (PRI) automatically receives the software release specified in the
CPY-MEM command.
There will be two momentary flashes of the “LOAD” and “ACT” LEDs on the
standby ACP. The “LOAD” LED will then turn on for a while on the standby
ACP. The ACP will then initialize. During the start of initialization, the “OOS”
LEDs will light on both ACPs. The “OOS” LED will then turn off on the
previously active ACP and will remain lit on the standby ACP.
The "ACT" LEDs on the MCUs, TCUs, SCUs and HSCUs will then turn off
while the T::DAX is uploading the PCU software. As each PCU is loaded, the
"ACT" LED will return.
12 Wait for the ACP end of initialization message and then exit the local restoration
mode by entering:
EXIT-LOCL-RST:::ctag;
Wait for a "COMPLD" response.

3.5. SYSTEM RECOVERY

3.5.1. Introduction
System recovery is an initialization of processor-equipped T::DAX modules. You can
perform the following types of system recovery:
Warm start. A warm start is initialization with a “valid” database. A warm start
initializes individual modules, such as the ACP, AMU, CDU, DSU, control units
(xCU), or TPDR. A warm start saves cross-connect and PM data. The database is
valid after the following command is performed:
INIT-SYS::AMU:ctag::0;
Cold start. A cold start is an initialization with a “nonvalid” database. A cold start
is performed:
− When the T::DAX is powered up
− By plugging out the AMU, disconnecting the battery jumper and plugging
out the two ACPs.

3.5.2. Task Index


Use the following index to find your task. If the task is not listed in the following index,
refer to the index at the end of this manual to locate the procedure.

If Your Task Is To Initialize A: See Section:

Initialize an ACP 3.5.3

Initialize a TCU, SCU, HSCU, MCU, OCU, 3.5.4


NCU, ECU or RCU

Initialize an AMU 3.5.5

Initialize an CDU 3.5.6

Initialize an DSU 3.5.7

Initialize an a Tape in the TPDR 3.5.8

3.5.3. Initialize a ACP


ACP initialization is a recovery task that resets the ACP/TACP/PACP/HACP to a normal
software and hardware state. Use the following procedure to initialize an ACP. The
active or standby ACP can be initialized.

Step Initializing an ACP

1 To initialize the ACP, enter:


INIT-SYS:[tid]:ACP-n:ctag::0:RUSURE=rusure;
n = A or B, whichever ACP is being initialized. If the active ACP is initialized
it will cause a switch to standby.
rusure – enter Y to initialize the processor unconditionally.
Example response (for an active ACP):

TDAX 02-01-06 17:16:16


A 001 REPT INITZN
"ACP-
A:ACTIVITY=ACT,REASON=STARTOFINIT,INITMD=SOFT,DBVALID=YES"
;
<
TDAX 02-01-06 17:22:26
A 002 REPT INITZN
"ACP-B:ACTIVITY=ACT,REASON=ENDOFINIT,INITMD=SOFT,DBVALID=YES"

2 To verify that a ACP has been initialized, enter:

3.5.5. Initialize an AMU


AMU initialization is a recovery task that writes a signature sequence of bytes to the
AMU/TAMU/HAMU module, allowing the system database to be restored from the
AMU during future ACP initializations.
Note: After an ACP initialization with no valid database on the AMU, the AMU remains
in the out-of-service state and cannot be written to until this command is issued for the
AMU. This is required on initial system turn up, and when the AMU is replaced.
Use the following procedure to initialize an AMU.

Step Initializing an AMU

1 To initialize the AMU enter:


INIT-SYS:[tid]:AMU:ctag::0;
0 - initialization level (zero).

2 To verify that a AMU has been initialized, enter:


RTRV-COND-EQPT:[tid]:AMU:ctag;
Example response:
M BRUN RTRV
"AMU,EQPT:TYPEREP=IS"

from the DSU as follows:
STA-LOCL-RST::ctag;
CPY-MEM::FROMMEM=SEC, TOMEM=WKG:ctag::PGM:Rel=x.xx;
There will be two flashes of the "OOS" and "ACT" LEDs on the standby ACP.
Then both ACP "OOS" LEDs will go on. After about 20 seconds the "OOS"
LED on the ACP that is standby will go out. The active ACP "OOS" LED will
stay on until the initialization is completed. After a completed initialization the
"ACT" LED will turn on.
This takes about 3 minutes for a basic system, 6 minutes for a double capacity
system and 12 minutes for quad capacity system.
