Context Setting What is Changing
5
2007 Avaya Inc. All rights reserved. Avaya Proprietary & Confidential. Under NDA
How our Deployment/Product Model is Changing
Avaya is migrating to a new product deployment architecture that
changes the physical architecture without changing the functional
architecture.
At the product level, these changes have little or no impact on existing
knowledge and skills, although a new set core components have been
introduced.
You need new knowledge and skills in the area of product offers, call
receipt, triage and communication.
By understanding the new environment, Avaya will be poised to provide
timely and seamless resolution to customer support requests.
From a serviceability perspective, understanding how Avayas existing
solution offerings have merged with this new deployment architecture
will allow you to confidently position your troubleshooting state of
mind.

Deployment Architecture - What is System
Platform
First and foremost, System Platform is NOT a product. Rather it is a
simple enabling technology to run a System or Multiple Systems on
ONE Server, while each System thinks it runs in its OWN Server
System Platform software is CentOS (Linux) along with the Xen Open-
Source Hyper-Visor that host one or more Avaya products as virtual
appliances [aka virtual machines]
Virtual machines are deployed as Templates. A template or Solution
Template" is a collection of one or more virtual machines running
Avaya applications such as CM, AES, SES, SMGR, SALGW..etc
System Platform offers a feature rich management console that
provides such features as template installation, template management,
and SAL connectivity
Every System Platform Includes a SAL Gateway for remote access and
alarming. Modems are not supported.

9
2007 Avaya Inc. All rights reserved. Avaya Proprietary & Confidential. Under NDA
Solution Template & System Platform
System Platform while a single offer for every solution, will always be
deployed in the following fashion.
System Platform Software [Common to all adopters]
Template Solution Software [Unique to all adopters]
Both of these components while together form the offer or the solution,
will always be downloaded and installed separately.
This understanding is important for the following reasons:
From an Avaya solution perspective them, we view them
collectively as one.
From a deployment perspective, we view them as two separate but
bound software components which require their own tasks to
execute.

Solution Overview System Platform
11
2007 Avaya Inc. All rights reserved. Avaya Proprietary & Confidential. Under NDA
What is System Platform the Software
System Platform is the underlying software component which gets
installed first on the physical server before any template installation.
It includes the following:
CentOS Operating System with Xen Hypervisor [privileged
layer]
CentOS Operating System [Console Domain and SAL Gateway]

The above is not part of any Solution Template rather all System
Platform adopters will have this in common and MUST install this
first before anything else.
12
2007 Avaya Inc. All rights reserved. Avaya Proprietary & Confidential. Under NDA
What is a Solution Template
A Solution Template is a STATIC collection of Avaya products optimized for
distribution and installation on the System Platform and includes
Solution descriptor
Product images
Plug-ins (pre-install, post-install, backup, restore, sanity, patch)
The Solution descriptor
Complies with the Open Virtualization Format (OVF) standard and is hyper-
visor and hardware neutral
Describes the virtual systems comprising the solution and the physical
requirements for installing the solution (e.g. RAM, HDD etc).
Product Images
Images of installation files for solution
Plug-ins
Uses Avaya extensions to define plug-ins for
Web pages and scripts to run during installation
Other features provided by the platform Sanity, Backup/Restore, etc.

The SAL On-boarding team does
not have a VDN so two scenarios
will play out.

customer, Avaya or BP
implementer to engage the SAL
On-boarding team. Have them

send this form to the

BBE/Tier III Role
Ensure system is registered and accessible via SAL. If not immediately advise
customer that registration must be completed before Avaya can provide
support. Direct customer to registration form on https://support.avaya.com
Once system is accessible, verify the installed version of System Platform and
the Solution Template. Recommend to the customer to apply updates as the
first attempt to fix.
If problem is with an install, make sure the customer has the latest software.
*Note - Recent s/w updates have eliminated s/w installation problems.
Trouble shoot the product or application following normal process. Applications
on SP operate the same way they would on a standalone server.
Server hardware problems are resolved by the same BBE that resolves them in
the stand alone environment. Remember, the server is a component of the
Solution Template. It is not part of System Platform.
Open a related case or collaboration activity to CPE/ADE as needed:
Product problems: follow normal escalation path
SAL problems: open related case or collaboration activity to SAL BBE
PLDS problems, including downloading, access to entitlements and
product licensing: create a request with IT
Server hardware: follow normal resolution process
System Platform specific problems: open related case or collaboration
activity with ETSS

31

Support Request Examination
Prior to isolating the issue determine what Solution Template you are
dealing with.
If you hear System Platform dont panic.
Focus first on the Solution Template and begin with the business as
usual mindset.
Use your knowledge about System Platform merely as a way to guide
you to the potential issue.
Dont forget to consider SAL as a possible culprit.
In most cases if the issue does have to be handed off, it will be likely be
handed off to the team supporting the Solution Template and rarely
directory to the ETSS organization.

Remote Access Validation
If and when you require validating remote access you will use the following
methods.
Pre-requisites
Customer FL and SE ID for target device
eToken with valid VeriSign Identity Certificate
Remote Access will be validated in one of two ways
1. Avaya supported tools servers
toolsa [st3tds02 and st3tds03]
wcscbe5 [Maestro or Siebel Product Connect]
spiexp1 [Maestro or Siebel Product Connect]
2. Secure Access Link Enterprise Server
By accessing https://tech1.sal.avaya.com
50
2007 Avaya Inc. All rights reserved. Avaya Proprietary & Confidential. Under NDA
Remote Access Validation Tools Servers
With Avaya tools servers you can only validate CLI based access.
For Example
SSH, SFTP, Telnet
You will establish connections to these product as you have traditionally
with one key difference.
You must have your eToken plugged in to your PC and will be asked to
provide your eToken password.
Everything else remains the same i.e.
Launching Product Connect or
Using connect2/connect2 command strings
51
2007 Avaya Inc. All rights reserved. Avaya Proprietary & Confidential. Under NDA
Remote Access Validation SAL Enterprise
With the SAL Enterprise you can establish any type of connection that you
could with the Avaya tools servers plus everything else.
In addition to CLI based protocols you MUST use the SAL Enterprise to
validate
GUI based connections [i.e. HTTPs, RDP, VNC, X11, etc]
To establish a connection using the SAL Enterprise
You must have your eToken plugged in to your PC.
You will access https://tech1.sal.avaya.com
Search for your device using the SE ID
Select the type of connection you desire
Connect to localhost
