FTDG-S630-M020

Operating Suggestions

Caution: Before each operation, execute Re-configure Screen command to synchronize the FLEXR display with the current NE status. See "Reconfigure Screen on page 3-20" for the detailed procedure.

Caution: The FLEXR is unable to display any failures nor logon to the NE if the NE's management communication capability is affected. Only the CR/MJ/MN LED of the local NE indicates presence of such equipment failure. If you encounter such NE condition, contact FUJITSU for technical assistance.

Caution: The FLEXR terminates the connection with the NE in the event of a cable disconnection, unstable operation of the NE, or others. If an error message "Time out, no response" appears during the operation, execute the following procedures as instructed on the message before retry the command: 1) locate and troubleshoot the cause of the connection termination, 2) logoff the NE, and 3) re-logon to the NE. The connection status can be verified using the Health Check command. See "Health Check on page 3-28" for the detailed procedure.

Caution: Changing an NE ID by one user results in the forcible logoff from the NE of the other users who are being logging on the same NE at that time if any. The forcibly logged-off users need to logoff, and then re-logon the NE with the new NE ID to continue the operation as requested by the message that appears at the FLEXR display. Contact your network administrator for the new NE ID.

Caution: Once FLEXR starts to receive a great number of alarm messages, it is unable to respond to users command until completion of the alarm reception and processing. To enable operation in this condition, FLEXR allows users to inhibit alarm message report by clicking OK on a message box with an alarm buffer counter which appears during alarm reception. Even after this command is sent, it may take a while before FLEXR completes the processing of already received alarm messages and responds to the users command.

FLEXR Operation

Caution: If you execute the provisioning commands for certain parameters under certain conditions with the FLEXR connected to the NE through the LAN port, the FLEXR will be automatically logged off from the NE being provisioned in the process of activating the provisioned parameters. The commands that will cause the automatic logoff when the FLEXR is connected to the NE through the LAN port are as follows: Provisioning -> System -> Set NE ID Provisioning -> Section DCC Provisioning -> Network Layer Protocol Provisioning -> TARP Control -> TARP Parameter Provisioning -> LAN Interface Provisioning -> TCP/IP Interface -> TCP/IP Service State, IP Address, IP Access Although the automatic logoff will not affect the previous provisioning, FUJITSU recommends to confirm that the previous provisioning has been successfully activated by using Retrieve action. You should re-logon to the NE to continue the FLEXR operation. For some technical reasons, the automatic logoff may fail. If so, press Control + Alt + Delete keys to forcibly end the FLEXR. For more details, refer to the section in Chapter 5 describing the each command.

Caution: When you are using the FLEXR connected to an NE through the LAN port, if the other user has provisioned certain parameters under certain conditions from the other FLEXR to the very NE to which you are currently accessing, your FLEXR will get into the trouble that it can not respond to any requested commands. The commands from one FLEXR that will cause this trouble to the other FLEXR using LAN connection and currently accessing to the same NE are as follows: Provisioning -> System -> Set NE ID Provisioning -> Section DCC Provisioning -> Network Layer Protocol Provisioning -> TARP Control -> TARP Parameter Provisioning -> LAN Interface Provisioning -> TCP/IP Interface -> TCP/IP Service State, IP Address, IP Access To continue the operation from the failed FLEXR, press Control + Alt + Delete keys to forcibly end the FLEXR, and re-log on to the NE.

FTDG-S630-M020

Note: When the other user has changed the NE ID to which you want to access, you should enter the new NE ID for logon.

Caution: To optimize performance, it is important that the PC running the FLEXR be used exclusively for the FLEXR. FUJITSU does not take any responsibility for any problems that may occur on the PC installing the other application software as well as the FLEXR.

Caution: Do not set the power options of the PC to enable a hibernation nor standby mode when connecting with LAN port. Otherwise, when the PC goes into either mode, the connection between the NE and the FLEXR is lost and the FLEXR does not makes any response to the entered commands.

Caution: Do not scroll screens too rapidly with a wheel mouse or trackball. It will affect FLEXRs proper operation and may cause shutdown of the program.

FTDG-S630-M020

1. OVERVIEW OF FLEXR
1.1 Overview of FLEXR
FLEXR supports your FLASHWAVE 4060 provisioning and monitoring tasks by allowing you to: Control security Monitor the NE shelf condition Provision parameters Accumulate and report a variety of data Troubleshoot command logs if problems arise

FLEXR provides you with a pop-up representation of the shelf layout diagram for each NE. This diagram, called the NE picture, shows the equipment configurations implemented by combinations of plug-in units. You can view unit information or provision units by selecting the unit(s) and choosing a FLEXR menu command.

1.2

Access to Network Elements


Connecting FLEXR to any FUJITSUs network element (NE) in a network enables FLEXR to access all NEs in the network. This connection can be direct, using an RS232 straight cable or 10Base-Tx twist pair straight cable between the FLEXR terminal and the FLASHWAVE 4060. FLEXR allows concurrent logon to up to five NEs. If the network includes several NE types, the users PC must include the FLEXR software for each system type to enable logon to each NE Note: Not all FUJITSUs NEs support 10Base-Tx connection.

1.3

User-friendly Interface
FLEXR is designed with the user in mind. All FLEXR products have a uniform look and feel. Color graphics provide detailed visual information, and the software features point-and-click mouse control. Upon logon to an NE, FLEXR automatically queries the NE for an inventory of its resources and then translate this inventory into a shelf layout display on the computer screen. This display simulates the view of the NE. The screen also displays alarm and status information. The on-line Help feature provides additional information about commands and procedures.

FTDG-S630-M020

FLEXR and FLEXR Plug-in Operation

1.4

Enhanced Graphics
FLEXRs enhanced layout graphics provide a three-dimensional representation of the shelf. During normal operation, the units appear to protrude from the main frame. During provisioning activities, the units appear recessed when selected by a user.

1.5

Status and Performance Monitoring


Complete alarm, status, physical inventory, performance monitoring (PM), and provisioning information is available in information windows such as log and report windows. PM data is summarized and stored in 15-minute intervals as well as in 24hour intervals. This information is available for each unit on a particular NE shelf and can be retrieved from the NE on demand using FLEXR. When a user is logged on to an NE, a summary of NE alarms or status information appears on the FLEXR screens.

1.6

Provisioning
Provisioning for all units, service states, synchronization, and other features can be performed locally for any NE that is accessed by FLEXR. The protection switching threshold and PM parameters can also be set with FLEXR. FLEXR also provides the capability to graphically provision the time slot interchange (TSI) matrix for cross-connect control in the NE.

1.7

Security Levels
FLEXR provides a security system to prevent unauthorized access. To access an NE, a user must enter an assigned user name and password. In addition, each user is assigned an appropriate privilege level. This security assignment gives users access to only the specific operations necessary to accomplish their tasks. User privileges are assigned by a system manager. The system manager can add users, delete users, and change user privilege levels. Note: For details, refer to Chapter 7, "ADMINISTRATION COMMANDS"

1.8

Command Logs
The FLEXR command logs provide a record of all commands sent from FLEXR and the responses from the NE. Each message is tagged with the date and time. This information can be printed and filed, simplifying record keeping, troubleshooting, and network administration.

1.9

TL1 Commands
TL1 commands and responses are used for all communication between an NE and a local terminal. FLEXR translates selections made by a user with the point-and-click interface into the equivalent TL1 command and send the command to the NE. FLEXR then translates the response message from the NE into a graphical representation on the PC screen.

(To display files with a different extension, change the specification in the Open File Name box.) 3. Double-click the file name, or select the file name and click Open.

3.1.6 Exit the System


You can exit an NE in either of three ways after a session is completed: by using the Logoff command, by using the Exit command, or by clicking the WindowsXP Close (X) button. The following sections describe the first two methods.

3.1.6.1 Logoff
There are three types of NE logoff: Auto Logoff, Forced Logoff and Manual Logoff. Auto Logoff Users who are provisioned for the Auto Time Out option are automatically logged off any NE when no FLEXR activity occurs for the specified amount of time. The NE sends the message REPT AUTO LOGOFF to FLEXR, which then deletes the shelf display for that NE. (Use the Change User command to assign the Auto Time Out option to a user.) Forced Logoff When an NE denies a user access, it sends the message REPT FRCD LOGOFF to FLEXR. The message is displayed in the response window.

3-18

FTDG-S630-M020

GETTING STARTED Note: When the ASSOCIATION FAIL message is received from an NE, temporarily log off the NE by choosing Session -> Logoff; then log on to the NE again. Note: When the REPT FRCD LOGOFF message is received from an NE, ask the network administrator about the reason for the forced logoff. Manual Logoff Any user can log off an NE at any time. You can use the logoff procedure to exit from one or multiple NE sessions. You do not need to log off one NE session to log on to another NE. The craft port on the NE uses a universal asynchronous receiver/transmitter (UART). FLEXR automatically sends a CTRL-C character as its final transmission. The communication port (the RS23C serial port) is then released and ready for the next user. Follow these steps to manually log off an NE: Use the Logoff command when you want to log off an NE. The Logoff command applies only to the current NE. It will not log you off other NE sessions in progress.

3.2.2 ASCII Terminal


From the FLEXR display, the PC running the FLEXR can be configured as the ASCII terminal that allows direct entry of the TL-1 commands. The communication with an NE can be made exactly same as with the FLEXR, that is, RS232C or LAN connection. If you select the connection mode different with each other for the FLEXR and ASCII operations, you can operate both the FLEXR and ASCII simultaneously. (Note that you can not log on to the same NE simultaneously from the FLEXR and ASCII with the same user name.) If you select the RS232C connection for the ASCII when the FLEXR is being connected through the RS232C, the FLEXR operations are suspended during the ASCII operation. Note: When the FLEXR is connected to the NE through the LAN port, you can not select the LAN connection for the ASCII terminal. To select the LAN connection, log off from the NE first before starting the ASCII operation.

NE Picture
Figure 3.33 is an example of the display that appears when you are logging on to five NEs. FLEXR uses information received from the NE to draw a picture of the NE. As each shelf is logged on, it appears on top of the stack.

shelfpicture

Figure 3.33 Sample NE Picture The NE pictures appear in separate windows within the NE window. If multiple NEs are logged on, use the Window menu on the FLEXR menu bar to choose the NE window that is displayed. Any actions you perform in FLEXR, such as provisioning, affect the active shelf. The active shelf is the one on top of all the others, or the shelf with the highlighted title bar. To activate a shelf, click any visible portion of the shelf. This moves the shelf to the top of the stack and highlights the title bar. You can also activate the shelf by choosing the shelfs name in the Window menu. To resize a shelf so that all of the plug-in units and labels are visible, move the cursor to the lower-right corner of the NE picture. When the cursor changes to a double-ended arrow, you can drag the mouse to resize the NE picture. If you have logged on to multiple NEs, you may find that there are too many windows displayed at one time. You can reduce unused windows to icons to provide more room in the FLEXR workspace. To minimize a window to an icon, click the Minimize button (the underscore _) in the upper-right corner of the NE picture. Click the Maximize button (the open square) for that shelf to restore the NE window to normal size.

Check Alarms

3.6.1 Alarm Indicators


FLEXR displays alarm status of the NE in the following two types of alarm indicators; NE-level alarm indicator in the global view and the individual alarm indicator in the NE picture, as shown in Figure 3.37.

Caution: The FLEXR is unable to display any failures nor logon to the NE if the NE's management communication capability is affected. Only the CR/MJ/MN LED of the local NE indicates presence of such equipment failure. If you encounter such NE condition, contact FUJITSU for technical assistance.

Caution: The FLEXR does not display the alarm event whose notification code (alarm severity) is designated as NR (Not Reported). Those events are treated as non-alarmed conditions and only retrieved by the Shelf Condition command. On the other hand, the local LED indicates the NR alarm events. If there is any differences between the FLEXR's alarm display and the local LED indication, check all the NE's events using the Shelf Condition command to see whether there is any NR events occurring. See "Shelf Condition on page 6-1" for the detailed procedures.

NE-Level Alarm Indicator The global view indicates the alarm status of each NE level by changing the color of a square mark next to the TID. Individual Alarm Indicator The NE picture provides the following alarm indicators as shown in Figure 3.37. LINE: Provided to indicate alarm status of the STM-1 and E1 lines. LINK: Provided to indicate alarm status of the Fast Ethernet link of IF-FE12 unit.

3-38

FTDG-S630-M020

GETTING STARTED
Note: On the actual NE, the LINK LED on the IF-FE12 unit is provided for each of eight ports. For simplification, however, on the NE picture of the FLEXR a LINK LED collectively indicates the status of all the eight ports.

FAIL/SVCE: Provided to indicate equipment alarm status of a plug-in unit. FAN: Provided to indicate fan unit alarm status. (No indicator name in the NE picture.)

Note: On the actual NE, the FAN LED is not located on the front panel of the FAN unit as illustrated in the NE picture of the FLEXR, but on the left hand of the FAN unit.

CR/MJ/MN: Provided to indicate alarm status of an NE level. MF: Provided to indicate an equipment failure in the main frame (No indicator in the NE picture, but indicates the alarm by changing color the outline of the shelf.) FAIL/SVCE FAN

FLEXR and FLEXR Plug-in Operation The most severe alarm in each area (IF group, NE, and so on) becomes the alarm displayed by the indicator for the area. For example, if one IF group has a critical alarm while the other has a minor alarm, then the alarm status indicated by the NE-level alarm indicator will be critical. Or in an IF group, if there are a minor alarm and a major alarm simultaneously, the alarm status of the IF group displayed by the indicator will be major.

3.6.3 Display Alarm Report


To check the alarms for a specific unit, right-click on that unit in the NE picture. The shortcut menu shown in Figure 3.38 will appear.

FTDG-S630-M020

5. PROVISIONING COMMANDS
This chapter describes the procedures for provisioning a network element (NE). Provisioning sets up the operating parameters for each plug-in unit in the FLASHWAVE 4060. The following types of Provisioning commands are available: Cross Connect Service State Facility Set System Configuration Section DCC Network Layer Protocol TARP Control LAN Interface TCP/IP Interface

For the available access identifiers (AIDs) and AID types, refer to "Appendix A, FLASHWAVE 4060 UNIT NAME".

Caution: Provisioning the various entities (equipment, facility, cross-connect, and so on) within the FLASHWAVE 4060 system requires the user to follow a hierarchy model. This model dictates the order in which the entities can be added provisioning to or deleted from the system. For a detailed description of the provisioning hierarchy, refer to Application and Engineering practice (FTDG-H630-D310) of the FLASHWAVE 4060 Product Manual Set (FTDG-H630-M010).

5.1

Use NE Pictures
Several figures in this section represent FLASHWAVE 4060 NE pictures. During many provisioning tasks, units and integrated interfaces within the NE appear in the picture with a C inside a square. This symbol is the unit selector. To activate provisioning for a unit or interface, click the selector. After selecting one or more unit selectors, click elsewhere on the NE picture. Note: After each provisioning operation, make sure that none of the unit selectors on the NE picture appears recessed. If any unit selectors remain recessed, restore the normal state of the picture by clicking these recessed selectors before the next operation.

Section DCC
The Section DCC commands allow you to set up the communications channel between NEs connected by the STM-n facilities using the SDH overhead. This provides a method for remote communication between NEs during a session. The general guidelines to select the service state of the SDCC for each STM-n are as follows; For a pair of STM-n consisting of the UPSR protection group, set the SDCC for both of them to in service. For the unprotected facilities, set the SDCC for each of them to in service.

Two Section DCC commands are available: SDCC Service State Set SDCC

Caution: FUJITSU strongly recommends to use the RS-232C (D-Sub 9-pin) port for connection between the FLEXR and the NE for entering, deleting or editing these parameters. When your FLEXR is connected to the NE through the LAN (RJ-45) port, the entering, deleting or editing these parameters under a certain condition results in the automatic logoff from the NE in the process of activating the provisioned parameters. Although this will not affect the previous provisioning, it is recommended to confirm that the previous provisioning has been successfully done by using Retrieve action. To do so, or continue other works to the NE by the FLEXR, you should relog on to the NE. For some technical reasons, the automatic logoff may fail. In such case, press Alt + Ctrl + Delete keys to forcibly end the FLEXR.

Network Layer Protocol


The Network Layer Protocol commands allow you to select the role of the network element in the network layer routing domains and administrative domains and provision the associated parameters. The NLP parameters setting is indispensable for any node to route the OSI protocol data unit (PDU) over the 7-layer OSI network for the OAM&P communications.

Caution: FUJITSU strongly recommends to use the RS-232C (D-Sub 9-pin) port for connection between the FLEXR and the NE for entering, deleting or editing these parameters. When your FLEXR is connected to the NE through the LAN (RJ-45) port, the entering, deleting or editing these parameters results in the automatic logoff from the NE in the process of activating the provisioned parameters.

5.7.1 Edit NLP Parameters


The NLP Parameters command allows you to set the network layer protocol parameters. If all nodes in the ring are in one DCN area, FUJITSU recommends setting al nodes to IS1. If the FLASHWAVE 4060 nodes in the rings are routing to multiple areas, set all nodes in the ring to IS1IS2. Also FUJITSU recommends not to set the multiple nodes to IS1IS2 within the same routing area; thus all IS1IS2 nodes should be assigned unique and different network address. The IS1 NEs in different routing areas cannot communicate. However no alarms will be generated on the NEs. (There will be no alarms because it is a user option, not a system error, to assign different area addresses to different NEs.) Follow these steps:

The TARP Control commands allow you to specify the attributes associated with the TID address resolution protocol (TARP). The TARP is used to translate the TID (i.e. NE ID) to identify the target NE in the OAM&P request and response data into the Network Service Access Point (NSAP) address to designate the destination NE in the OSI network. This is enabled by the TARP protocol data unit (PDU) propagation across the OSI network to request the NSAP address for the designated TID and sending back of the response PDU from the corresponding NE. The following TARP Control commands are available: TARP Parameters Display TARP Cache Operate TARP Echo

Caution: FUJITSU strongly recommends to use the RS-232C (D-Sub 9-pin) port for connection between the FLEXR and the NE for entering, deleting or editing these parameters. When your FLEXR is connected to the NE through the LAN (RJ-45) port, the entering, deleting or editing these parameters under a certain condition results in the automatic logoff from the NE in the process of activating the provisioned parameters.
