Installing the Solaris operating system
Install and customize the Solaris operating system software on a Multiservice
Data Manager workstation.
Prerequisites
Obtain the Solaris operating system software, software patches, and
installation documentation from Sun Microsystems Inc.
Procedure steps
Step Action
1 Install the Solaris operating system according to the instructions provided by
Sun Microsystems Inc.
Sun workstations can be delivered with the Solaris operating system
software installed. If the operating system software is not installed, use the
documentation provided by Sun Microsystems Inc. to install the software. If
the documentation is not available, or to ensure that the latest
documentation is used, visit the Sun Microsystems Documentation Center
at: www.sun.com/documentation
Attention: Choose the option Entire Solaris software group when you are installing
the Solaris software group.
2 Ensure, as a minimum specification, that the workstation disk space is
partitioned according to the information in Recommended operating system
partitions (page 11).
3 Install all of the Solaris operating system patches as recommended by Sun
Microsystems Inc. See the Solaris Release Notes for a description of the
required patches.
4 Enable the logging mount option in the Solaris file system for UFS type file
partitions. Logging reduces the time required to reboot the workstation by
eliminating the need to run fsck on startup. As the userID root, edit the file
/etc/vfstab and add logging to the mount options.
The default is no logging (a dash [-] is in the mount options column).
See Example of file /etc/vfstab with the logging option enabled (page 11) for
an example.

Downloading device integration cartridge software
Download device integration cartridge software from the Nortel software
distribution web site.
Device integration cartridge software enables the Nortel Multiservice Data
Manager (MDM) software to support various types of SNMP network
elements.
This procedure is required only if the MDM Installer will be used to install
device integration cartridge software. Device integration cartridge software
can also be installed on a Multiservice Data Manager workstation at any time
without using the MDM Installer. Device integration cartridge software
installation is described in 241-6003-100 Generic Device Integration
Installation Guide.
Procedure steps
Step Action
1 Create a temporary directory using the userID root. From the UNIX
command line, use the command mkdir.
For example
mkdir /tmp/newcartridge
2 Record the new directory name.
This directory name is required by the MDM Installer.
3 Download the cartridge from the Nortel distribution site to the directory
created in step 1. The URL of the Nortel distribution site is:
www130.nortelnetworks.com/cgi-bin/eserv/cs/main.jsp
4 Change directories to the directory created in step 1.
For example
cd /tmp/newcartridge
5 Untar the downloaded tar file.
For example
tar xvf MDM_Baystack_450_Cartridge_V1.0.0_Sun_b100.tar
A new subdirectory is created containing the device integration cartridge
software.

Configuring an IP over X.25 link for Multiservice Switches
Configure an IP connection from a Multiservice Data Manager workstation to
a Nortel Multiservice Switch using an X.25 communications link to a DPN
gateway network element.
Configure each IP over X.25 connection as a point-to-point connection.
Configuring a point-to-point connection involves configuring service
parameters in two dialog boxes that can be opened from the Services menu
of the x25tool 9.2 window.
To configure a point-to-point connection, the first dialog box you use is the IP
Interface Configuration Dialog box. In this dialog box, add the local IP address
of the workstation, the remote IP address of the Multiservice Switch, and
specify the connection as a point-to-point connection. From this dialog box,
open another dialog box to specify advanced IP over X.25 configuration
parameters.
The second dialog box you use is the Remote Host to X.25 Map dialog box.
In this dialog box, you specify information that maps the Remote X.25 address
entered in the IP Interface Configuration Dialog box to the DNA of the
Multiservice Switch.
For each point-to-point connection, add IP interface information into the IP
Interface Configuration dialog box and then add mapping information into the
Remote Host to X.25 Map dialog box.
Prerequisites
Configure an X.25 link on a DPN using Configuring an X.25 link (page 22).
Provision an IP over X.25 link on a Multiservice Switch using Provisioning
an IP over X.25 link for Multiservice Switches (page 28).

13 Click X.25 Parameters.
The X25 Configuration IP Address dialog box appears.
14 Type the preemption timeout in the Preemption Timer field.
The number of seconds that a connection must be idle before it can be
closed (preempted) for another purpose. When all X.25 circuits available to
the IP application are in use and an IP packet arrives for transmission to a
new destination, SunLink closes the connection that has been idle the
longest. The preemption timer determines the minimum time a connection
must be idle before it can be preempted in this way.
If the workstation is being used for surveillance or data collection, set this
timer to a minimum of 6000 to avoid undesired teardown of VC connections
and to keep the communications path to the switch stable.
If the workstation is not being used for purposes that require the connection
to remain up, say for entering commands, you can set the pre-ambition timer
to a lower value.
15 Type the disconnection timeout in the Disconnection Timer field.
The time in seconds that a connection to a given network can remain idle
before being closed. For a value of 6000, this represents 100 minutes.
If the workstation is being used for surveillance or data collection, you must
set this timer to a minimum of 6000 to avoid undesired teardown of VC
connections and to keep the communications path to the switch stable. If the

workstation is not being used for purposes that require the connection to
remain up, say for entering commands, you can set the disconnection timer
to a value of less than 300. You can do this because when a connection is

Variable definitions
Variable Value
<device_set_file> The name of a device set file defined for the NDAM server without the
NDAM prefix and the .dev extension. For example, if the file name is
NDAM_eastern_region.dev, the name of the device set is
eastern_region.
<host | ip_address> The host name or IP address of the Multiservice Data Manager
workstation that runs NDAM. To use the host name, the IP address
must be mapped to the hostname in the file /etc/hosts or the
workstation must have access to a Naming Information Service
(yellow pages) server that maps the IP address to the host name. If
there is no mapping, specify the IP address of the workstation.
<process_name> Is one of OVsPMD, ovwdb, pmd, ovat, ovdam, or OVLicenseMgr.
<service_name> The service name of the NDAM process. If there is only one NDAM
process running on the MDM workstation and you chose not to
specify a service name in the command to start the NDAM process,
enter NDAM and omit the service name.
