High-Risk Operations Impact

8.2 Replacing an AEUa l Replacing the standby AEU has no adverse impact on the
Board system. When no standby AEU is in position, replacing
the board disrupts services carried on this board.
l If the BSC6900 and its peer equipment are connected
through only the AEU board, the ongoing services
between the BSC6900 and its peer equipment are
disrupted when you replace the AEU board.

8.6 Replacing an FG2a l If the FG2 board is standby and the data over the port on
Board the FG2 board are backed up, replacing the standby FG2
8.7 Replacing an FG2c board has no adverse impact on the system.
Board l When the FG2 boards work in backup mode and the ports
work in load sharing mode, replacing the standby FG2
board disrupts part of services if the traffic over the ports
exceeds the bandwidth of the ports on the active board.
When the FG2 boards work in backup mode with
independent ports, replacing the standby FG2 board
interrupts all the services carried on the standby board.
l Replacing an FG2 board that works independently
interrupts all the services on the board.

Prerequisites
l A new OMU board is ready, and it is of the same type as the board to be replaced.
NOTE

The OMUc board only runs the Dopra Linux OS.
l A USB installation disk has been prepared. For detailed operations, see Preparing a USB
Storage Device. The operation type is set to Install and OMU applications and patches are
installed during the preparation.

Context
When the new OMU board runs a different OS from that of the OMU board to be replaced, it is
recommended that you switch the OS of the new OMU board to that of the old OMU board.
This takes care of the user operation habit.

CAUTION
l To protect the OMU board from the Electrostatic Discharge (ESD), wear an ESD wrist strap
and insert its connector into the ESD socket on the cabinet before replacing the board. For
detailed operations, see Wearing an ESD Wrist Strap. If an ESD wrist strap or ground point
is unavailable, wear a pair of ESD gloves instead.

Procedure
Step 1 Run the MML command STP DATASYNC to stop the synchronization between the active
OMU and the standby one.
Step 2 Run the MML command DSP OMU to check the status to make sure the synchronization
between the active OMU and the standby one is stopped.
Step 3 Go to standby OMU, choose Start > Run, type cmd and press Enter to enter the command
mode. Run net stop omud to stop the omud serviece.
Step 4 Connect a USB installation disk to a USB port on the new OMU.
Step 5 Remove the OMU board to be replaced and insert the new one. For detailed operations, see
Replacing an OMU board that is configured with new ejector levers or Replacing an OMU
board that is configured with old ejector levers.
Step 6 Wait 1 to 2 minutes and then use the USB flash drive to install the OMU operating system. Check
the status of indicators on the OMU board panel to determine whether the OMU operating system
is installed successfully.
l If only the operating system is to be installed on the OMU, check the indicator status. See
Table 8-12.
l If the operating system and applications are to be installed on the OMU, check the indicator
status. See Table 8-13.

Context
Co-Existence of OMU Boards
l Short-term co-existence of OMU boards is supported. When an OMUc board is used to
replace an OMUa board, the OMUc board and the OMUa board can be inserted into the
slots and co-exist for a short period, so that data can be transferred from the OMUa board
to the OMUc board.
l Long-term co-existence of OMU boards in slots is not supported because the active and
standby OMU boards must be of the same type for commercial delivery in existing network.
For example, both active and standby OMU boards must be OMUa boards or OMUc boards.

CAUTION
l To protect the OMU board from the Electrostatic Discharge (ESD), wear an ESD wrist strap
and insert its connector into the ESD socket on the cabinet before replacing the board. For
detailed operations, see Wearing an ESD Wrist Strap. If an ESD wrist strap or ground point
is unavailable, wear a pair of ESD gloves instead.

Procedure
Step 1 Run the DSP OMU command to query information about the OMU and record the queried
information in Records of the OMU Application Installation Information.
Record Sheet of OMU Software Installation Information of the OMU board to be replaced
records the following information:
l Administrator password
l Password of system administrator admin
l Password of FTP user FtpUsr
l External fixed IP address, external virtual IP address, internal fixed IP address, internal virtual
IP address, debugging IP address, and backup channel IP address of the OMU board
NOTE

This document uses the OMUa board as an example.

Step 2 Stop the omud process on the standby OMU board and shut down the OMU operating system
(OS).
1. Log in to the standby OMU. For detailed operations, see Logging in to the OMU in the
BSC6900 UMTS OMU Administration Guide.
2. Run the /etc/rc.d/omud stop command to stop the omud process.
3. Run the poweroff command to shut down the OMU OS.

Step 3 Run the RMV BRD command to remove the standby OMUa boards.

Step 4 Run the ADD BRD command to add an OMUc board in the slot where the removed standby
OMU board originally resides, that is, the slot marked green in Figure 8-12.

Step 5 Remove the standby OMU board. For detailed operations, see Replacing an OMU board that
is configured with new ejector levers or Replacing an OMU board that is configured with

Context
If the OMU board to be replaced is faulty and cannot undergo operation and maintenance
(O&M), obtain the latest backup data for restoring the data on the new OMU board.

Co-Existence of OMU Boards
l Short-term co-existence of OMU boards is supported. When an OMUc board is used to
replace an OMUa board, the OMUc board and the OMUa board can be inserted into the
slots and co-exist for a short period, so that data can be transferred from the OMUa board
to the OMUc board.
l Long-term co-existence of OMU boards in slots is not supported because the active and
standby OMU boards must be of the same type for commercial delivery in existing network.
For example, both active and standby OMU boards must be OMUa boards or OMUc boards.

Two solutions can be adopted for the OMU replacement in terms of synchronizing data during
the replacement:

l Solution 1: When slots beside the OMUa board in single-OMU mode are empty and
available, the OMUa board can be replaced by the OMUc board through short-term co-
existence of OMU boards.
l Solution 2: When slots beside the OMUa board in single-OMU mode are not empty and
available, the data of the OMUa board can be copied onto the OMUc board to complete
replacement.

CAUTION
l To protect the OMU board from the Electrostatic Discharge (ESD), wear an ESD wrist strap
and insert its connector into the ESD socket on the cabinet before replacing the board. For
detailed operations, see Wearing an ESD Wrist Strap. If an ESD wrist strap or ground point
is unavailable, wear a pair of ESD gloves instead.

Procedure
l Check whether slots beside the OMUa board are empty and available for installing the
OMUc board.

The OMUa board is twice the thickness of other OMU boards. Two OMUa boards are
installed in the slots in blue, yellow, and red frames, as shown in Figure 8-13. Between
two adjacent OMUa boards, one is active and the other is standby.

The first OMUc board used for replacement must be installed in the green slots in the blue,
yellow, and red frames.

Example 1: An OMUa board is installed in the slots 20 and 21 before replacement.
Replacing operations are as follows:
1. Install the first OMUc board in slot 23.
2. Remove the OMUa board installed in slots 20 and 21.
3. Install the second OMUc board in slot 22.

Example 2: An OMUa board is installed in the slots 22 and 23 before replacement. Perform
the following operations to replace OMU boards:

Table 11-1 Description about the bits

Bit Description

1-5 Bits 1 to 5 are used for setting the subrack number. Bit 1 is the
least significant bit. If the bit is set to ON, it indicates 0. If the bit
is set to OFF, it indicates 1.

6 Odd parity check bit

7 Reserved, undefined, generally set to ON

8 (the most significant Startup type of the subrack, generally set to OFF
bit) NOTE
l For the inventory sites upgrading from BSC6810 to BSC6900, keep
the former settings.
l For the new sites in BSC6900, the bit is conservative and is fixed to
OFF.

CAUTION
l You must set the DIP switch before powering on the subrack. The setting after the power-
on is invalid.

Principle of the DIP Switch Setting
As the DIP switch uses odd parity check, the number of 1s in the eight bits must be an odd
number. The method for setting the bits is as follows:
1. Set bit 1 to bit 5 as required.
2. Set bit 7 to ON.
3. Set bit 8 to OFF.
4. Check the number of 1s in the seven bits of the DIP switch.
l If the number of 1s is even, set bit 6 to OFF.
l If the number of 1s is odd, set bit 6 to ON.

Table 11-2 describes the setting of the DIP switch in the case.

NOTE

l All DIP switches are on the front panel of the sub-board. The front panel is combined with the bottom
plate, so the DIP switches are not exposed.
l DIP switches S2, S4, S6, S8, and S10 are set from the side. As shown in Figure 11-2, there are two
square holes between DIP switches, one between S2 and S4, and the other between S8 and S6. Through
the two holes, you can set S2, S4, S8, and S6. DIP switch S10 is located in the right corner of the sub-
board, and therefore you can set S10 along the side. The direction of the arrow in Figure 11-2 is to
turn inwards. To set the bits of S2, S4, S6, or S8 to ON, turn them inwards. To set the bits of S2, S4,
S6, or S8 to OFF, turn them outwards. To set the bits of S10 to ON, turn them outwards. To set the bits
of S10 to OFF, turn them inwards.
l You can also run the SET E1T1 command on the LMT to set S10. If there is any inconsistency between
the physical setting of S10 on the AEUa board and the setting of S10 by command, take the setting by
command as the criterion. By default, the working mode of S10 is set to E1. You can also run the SET
E1T1 command on the LMT to change the working mode of S10 from E1 mode to E1 balanced mode,
E1 unbalanced mode, or T1 mode. When you run the SET E1T1 command to set the support for
balanced and unbalanced modes parameter to No and set the working mode of S10 to E1, you must
also manually set the bits of S10 to set the working mode of S10 to E1 balanced mode or E1 unbalanced
mode.
l If signals are transmitted in E1 unbalanced mode, the signals are transmitted through the 75-ohm coaxial
cable and the TX end of the cable is grounded, that is, the corresponding DIP bit is set to ON. If signals
are transmitted in E1(T1) balanced mode, the signals are transmitted through the 120-ohm twisted pair
cable and the TX end of the cable is not grounded, that is, the corresponding DIP bit is set to OFF.

Description of the DIP Switches
DIP switches S2, S4, S6, and S8 on the AEUa board are used to enable or disable the grounding
of 0 to 31 E1s/T1/J1s at the TX end. DIP switch S10 is used to set the working mode to E1
balanced mode, E1 unbalanced mode, T1 mode, or J1 mode. Table 11-3 describes S2, S4, S6,
S8, and S10.
