1 Introduction 1 Introduction This section introduces you to the IMT and describes how to start the IMT and the basic concepts of its use.14a 11 / 100 . 3BK 21673 AAAA PCZZA Ed.

1 Introduction

1.1 What Is the IMT?
The Installation and Maintenance Terminal (IMT) is the local or remote terminal
of the MFS. The MFS is the Alcatel-Lucent platform for GPRS. The Installation
and Maintenance Terminal (IMT) maintains the MFS by displaying alarms from
the MFS, then identifying particular MFS equipment related to the alarms.
There can be a maximum of two IMT connected to the same MFS
You use the IMT to maintain the MFS by:
Displaying and managing MFS alarms, then identifying particular MFS
equipment related to the alarms
Maintaining MFS equipment (reset boards, etc.)
Viewing and reconfiguring hardware
Software management
Modifying telecom parameters.
MFS equipment includes telecommunications, processing, and internal and
external communications subracks.

1 Introduction

1.2 Starting the IMT
This section describes how to install the IMT software, connect the IMT to
the MFS, and start the IMT.

1.2.1 Configure the Network Board
This procedure describes how to configure the network board of the IMT on
the internal network. The IMT’s internal IP address must be chosen between
172.17.y.201 and 172.17.y.253,
Where y is:
3 if ATCA Shelf is in lower position
4 if ATCA Shelf is in upper position
The IMT’s IP address can be external too. But the network board can only be
configured with the internal or external IP address at a time
On the IMT:
1. Connect as local Administrator.
2. From the Windows desktop select the following menu path:
Start -> Run
3. Enter the following command:
control.exe netconnections
The "Network Connections" window opens.
4. Select ’Local Area Connection’ .
5. Right-click on ’Local Area Connection’ to display the context pop-up menu
and select [ Properties ].
6. The "Local Area Connection Properties" window opens.
7. Select ’Internet Protocol (TCP/IP)’ or ’Internet Protocol Version 4 (TCP/IPv4)’
from the list, depending of the operating system used.
8. Click on [ Properties ] .
The "Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) Properties" or "Internet Protocol Version 4
(TCP/IPv4) Properties" depending of the operating system used, window
opens.
9. Select ’Use the following IP address’ frame.
10. Enter the IMT’s IP address in the ’IP address’ field.
11. Enter 255.255.255.0 in the ’Subnetmask’ field.
12. Click on [ OK ].
13. Click on [ OK ] in the"Local Area Connection Properties" window.

1.2.2 Install IMT Environment
Mozilla version 1.6 or higher must be installed on your computer.
To install the IMT environment:
1. Open Mozilla and enter the following URL in the ’location’ field:

3BK 21673 AAAA PCZZA Ed.14a

1 Introduction

For a remote connection to the MFS: http://x.x.x.x/configuration
where x.x.x.x is the IP address of the MFS, for example:
http://139.54.74.200/configuration
For a direct connection to the MFS: http://172.17.y.x/configuration
where x can be 3 or 4 depending on the active station and y can be 3 or
4 depending on the shelf where the MFS is installed. This represents the
active connection to the MFS.
The MFS Terminal Configuration files page opens.
2. In the MFS Terminal Configuration files page click on Java Runtime
Environment 1.6 to download this file, if it is not already installed on your
PC.
Save the file to disk and when the file is downloaded, double-click on it
to launch the installation
During the installation accept the license agreement
Click on [ Finish ] to finish the installation.
Note: If Java Runtime Environment 1.6 is downloaded on the IMT, there is
no need for any Java Plug-in to be installed.

1.2.3 Connect IMT to MFS
For a remote connection to the MFS, connect the network cable from the PC
to the Hub/Switch of an existing network which is connected to the MFS.
For a direct connection to the MFS, connect the network cable from the PC to
the JAXSSW1 (position 7 on main ATCA, 3rd /4th shelf rear side), port ETH8
Verify the LED corresponding to the connection port is lit.

1.2.4 Configure Web Browser
For any web browser used, the following settings must be performed:
The disk space used for cache must be set to 0 MB
The web browser must be configured so that each time you access a page,
it will check for newer versions of the page, if such option is available
The web browser must be configured with no proxy for both type of
connection: local or remote.
We describe two examples in the following sections.

The number of colors available to the IMT can be divided into two groups: Logical colors Physical colors The physical colors are sub-divided into: Metal Theme Colors These colors define the ’Look and Feel’ of the IMT. They affect items such as the active and inactive window borders plus the active and inactive title bars. This feature can be accessed only from the OMC-R.1.1 Physical Colors Description The table below describes the 16 colors defined as Physical Colors. 3BK 21673 AAAA PCZZA Ed.1 Colors Available for IMT The IMT has a limited color set in order to avoid interference with other applications.8. 1.8 IMT Color Customization This section describes the color customization feature of the IMT.

Method 1 is to redefine the Metal Theme Colors.8. the path is: /alcatel/var/home/axadmin/alcatel/cfg You have two methods for customizing the appearance of the IMT. 2. To edit or modify the appearance of the IMT. To do this. The file contains the default values for the Physical and Logical Colors described in Colors Available for IMT (Section 1. This file exists on the OMC-R for one user only after the IMT is opened for the first time for this user. 3BK 21673 AAAA PCZZA Ed. change the RGB value from 102-102-153 (Primary 1) to 204-204-255 (Primary 3) to modify the color of the active window border. For example.ini. change the RGB default value of the theme color. Example: for the axadmin OMC-R user.14a 33 / 100 . 1. set the BKNormalColor = wheat to BKNormalColor = green to change the background color of an alarm in a normal state to green. This file is located on the OMC-R in the directory: ~/alcatel/cfg where "~" is the home directory of the OMC-R user. it is necessary to edit the text file Customizelt.8. Method 2 is to change the association between the logical color and the physical color.
