USER'S INTERFACE

USER'S CONSOLE

The EM ServiceOn Optical Element Manager Software can run on an X-Terminal or on the Console of the computer (if it is equipped with high resolution monitor).

The X-Terminal is a graphic terminal which is connected to the EM Network Server by means of an ethernet LAN (Refer to Description Installation for more details).

The X-Terminal consists of the following parts:

Color monitor

Base Unit containing the digital electronics printed-circuit assembly and the Ethernet module

Keyboard

Mouse

THE EM DESKTOP

The HP-UX CDE/VUE forms the ServiceOn Optical Element Manager working area.

The organization of the facilities offered by the desktop can be divided into two basic "objects":

Windows and Icons.

The HP Desktop is available when EM is run directly on the console of the HP Workstation. Following is shown an example of configuration of the HP tool bar, where are available some general purpose commands and the EM icon (on the left side of the tool bar). It is however possible to configure the CDE/VUE in a different way (Refer to the HP-UX Documentation).

Each operation opens a window in the desktop displaying the data relative to the operation. The desktop itself can be considered as the basic window of the EM.

More than one window can be opened on the desktop; the limit to the number of windows open at any one time depends on memory available in the X-Terminal (refer to Description Installation).

Scrollable Lists: A scrollable list is a boxed list with a scroll bar on its right (only when needed). A scroll bar is a vertical bar with an arrow at the top, an arrow at the bottom, and a scroll box somewhere in between to show where in the list the cursor is. When it is activated you can move the elements of the list and make your selection. If an element is selected it is highlighted. A scrollable list can contain only text (typically in the reports) in that case no selection are needed.

Text Boxes: A square box empty or with text inside is a text box. you can type text into it, or you can have EM display text resulting from your choices.

Spinners: A spinner is a control made up of an upward-and-downward pointing arrow, displayed next to a text that contains a number. You can increase the number by clicking the up arrow of the spinner or decrease the number by clicking the down arrow until the text displays the number you want.

How to start the EM from a workstation not included in the installation

It is possible to run EM also from any workstation, not included in the EM installation. The EM launcher, icon in the VUE desktop, has been enhanced with the remote access facility that allows to run the management center on one of the EM hosts, selected from a list.Requirements:

The EM remote account name must be equivalent to your local account name. That means that the workstation has to be known by the EM server by means of the /etc/hosts.equiv file and the username in the workstation has to be the same as the EM one.

In order to allow contemporary accesses from the same workstation to more than one EM host at once, you have to create the /etc/MV36.equiv file in each workstation and fill it with the name of the hosts where EM has been installed. If the /etc/MV36.equiv file doesn’t exist or it exists empty or it contains as unique entry the local hostname the EM is run locally. If the /etc/MV36.equiv file contains as unique entry an hostname different from the local one the EM is run remotely. If the /etc/MV36.equiv file contains more than one row, the EM hosts menu is displayed waiting for the user selection.

EM REMOTE LOGIN INTERFACE

The EM Remote Login Interface relies on standard UNIX services to access the EM interface or a meaningful part of it, such as the Fault RTM, and its NEs. When a remote login session is required from an User, the EM Remote Login Interface will execute a function on the EM itself. The following information will be sufficient to determine the appropriate action to be taken.

Emrlogin Interface Executable

The EM Remote Login Interface executable image, emrlogin, is expected to exist in:

$NCSPATH/emrlogin

on the EM or anywhere if the EM is not installed. A number of parameters must be accepted by emrlogin. They may occur in any order and may or may not exist in the command issued by NM. Default values are indicated when necessary.

The type of device login requested. May be one of:

-e element-type

ec - login session to the EM

ne - login session to the network element

-u user-id

A string of up to 8 alpha-numeric characters indicating the name of the EM user attempting to start the requested interface.

A numeric value representing the network element or multiplexing device to login to. Used for network element login sessions.

-i ne-id

SERVICEON OPTICAL ELEMENT MANAGER - OPERATOR'S HANDBOOK LOGIN

The emrlogin application doesn’t exit after launching the relevant EM interface but its GUI is only unmapped from the display. In this case the emrlogin process must be killed and managed by the external “calling” application.

-help

The emrlogin help messages: the usage, the full description of the above mentioned paramenters and some short examples of emrlogin execution.

Note The following options are mandatory:

-e element-type

-d display

-i

ne-id if -e ne

-u user-id if -s auto

Note

The following optins are incompatible:

-i

ne-id and -e ec

-c command and -e ne

-f host-file and -s auto or -h host

-nodie and -s auto

Technical Specification

The emrlogin GUI is composed by, at least, two TextArea (UserName and Password) which must be filled with the relevant data when necessary. Infact, if the -u option is required, the specified UserID automatically will appear in the UserName TextArea. The third TextArea (HostName), which is also a scrollable list, must appear only if -f option is required and only if the specified host-file contains at least two entries. The emrlogin GUI shall provide three PushButtons:

Ok which starts the relevant interface

Clear which resets the UserName and Password data

Close which exits from the application

The callback associated to the Ok PushButton must perform a rexec system call (using UserName, Password and HostName as specified by the GUI or by the emrlogin command options) that starts the relevant interface by launching the PUIstart script or the rmv36 executable.

The following table sumarize the command to be passed to the rexec when the Ok callback is called:

Option Command

-e ec -d display rmv36 -display display

-e ec -c RTM csh -f $NCS/SCRIPT/PUIstart -c RTM -d display

-e ne -d dispaly -i ne-id csh -f $NCS/SCRIPT/PUIstart -i ne-id -d display

If -s auto option is requested no emrlogin GUI will appear but just the EM relevant one.
