As previously mentioned EMAS is a java-based tool used to carry out element management of a number of different Node areas. It is composed of a number of different views including:

Radio View

ATM View

IP View

New Element Manager (EM)

EM is a new tool which combines and adds to the functionality of the old EMAS and Object Explorer tools. It is:

Model-based, and as such assumes some knowledge of the MOM

Is launched from a special installation package provided by Ericsson. Can also be launched from OSS-RC 6.2 and newer

Allows for user-defined, and some pre-defined views. Folders to hold and create these views are automatically created on the users PC with the installation of the launcher software

Nodes that are UTRAN P7 or newer, require the use of new EM

Command Line Interface Tool

As mentioned before the CLI tool can be used to access the node resources, such as the filing system

We access the tool by opening a terminal window from the OSS desktop (or alternatively via the Node Status Analyser tool)

Telnet into the node from the terminal window using the “telnet” command followed by the node IP address

Once in the node standard commands apply, including: “cd” to change directory and “ls” to list contents

More specific commands include “lhsh” to jump to a board, and “vii” to get information on the status of the LEDs on the board. (See handout with useful CLI commands for usage)

and “vii” to get information on the status of the LEDs on the board. (See handout

Node Command Line Interface Tool

NCLI is a MOM-based tool, and is accessed from the regular CLI

After telnetting in launch NCLI by keying in “ncli”

Restricted number of similtaneous sessions one any one node (2-5)

Treats the node MOM as a UNIX filing system, allows for jumping between MOs

Actions may be performed only on the MO the user is on

Caution is advised as there are no safeguards against hazardous actions, such as locking the O&M board

as there are no safeguards against hazardous actions, such as locking the O&M board “man” gives

“man” gives a list of commands

Advanced MO Scripting (AMOS) Tool

CLI-based tool that allows for MOM-based text support

Similar to the Ericsson MOshell tool

Client not located on node, user must ensure to upload MIB from node with each use

More flexible than NCLI as it allows for filter- matching of MO names, and displays all MO information (attributes)

Tasks include: “get” to get values “set” to set attribute value, “create” to create an MO and “delete” to delete one

Commands starting with an “l” and “r” match by local and relative distingushed name

and “delete” to delete one Commands starting with an “l” and “r” match by local and
