Other checks
Equipment causes RRU Issue / Antenna Issue Check alarms , hardware status , reset eNB if required
Common alarm : "resource configuration disable" , RRU fault , link failure , Check current & history alarms & take necessary action according to type of Alarm
Check RRU status , Reset boards , Verify SW on node
Alarms
HW/SW Cause S1 links down due to faulty interface board.
Check related alarms like Serviceunavailable (S1 connection failure,Hardware failure,GeneralHwError,GeneralSwError,Gigabit Ethernet Link Fault)
HW issues Check HW issues , alarms , improper cabling , connector issues , DUS Board error
SW package preparation failure will be high if there is SW package corrupt
MME pool If MME pool is different at source and target then HO-Preparation fail will be 100%, command "get . termpointmme" can be used to find out the MME pool IP
