Log in
Run the following command: df k
Taking an ET out of BL state:

Go back up the tree to get it back into Working
Rolling the BCCH on a Sector:
ZDTI:::PCM=#; Find out what TSL the radio is on that you want the BCCH on
ZDTC:lapd:BL; Block the TSL on the radio that the BCCH is going to
ZDTC:lapd:AL; Allow activation of the TSL that the BCCH is going to
ZDTC:lapd:WO; Brings TSL to a working state that the BCCH is going to
ZDTI:::PCM=#; Find out what TSL the radio that HAD the BCCH is on
ZDTC:lapd:AD; Deny Activation of the TSL that HAD the BCCH on it
ZDTC:lapd:BL; Block the TSL that the BCCH was on
ZDTC:lapd:WO; Brings the TSL to a working state
Clearing Circuit Releasing Failed in CAS alarms:
The alarm that you are talking about happens on MF circuits and is caused by the LEC not releasing or
acknowledging us quick enough. Do to the latency, the Nokia locks out the trunk in question. When you
see this alarm you should assume that it is 911 related and the issue needs to be corrected ASAP. The
alarm field will be shown below.
SLMSC001 CASU-1 SWITCH 2005-11-27 00:07:37.44
*** ALARM CASU-1 1E001-00 SI9_SO
1081d 13d 29 0823 01 FF 01 02 01 01 10 00 00 00
If you look above I have highlighted in red the circuit that needs to be reset (1081-13). If you take the
circuit to a NU state for about 30 seconds and then back to WO it should clear.
Also, you should get a Low Traffic Capacity alarm with supplementary information. I have the alarm listed
below and the supplementary info is in red (02 0386). If you convert 386 from HEX to Decimal it comes
out to 902. At that time you can do the command ZRCI:SEA=3:CGR=902:PRINT=5:; and look at the
circuit group.
