    Testing Network Element Connectivity

    Use this procedure to check connectivity to a discovered network element. This procedure tests IP, SNMP, and NETCONF (where applicable) connectivity to the network element.

    1. Right-click the network element in the Network tree or in the Topology Map view and select Node >Connectivity Test.

      PSM pings the NE, and checks SNMP and NETCONF connectivity where applicable. You can see the results of the test through the View >Server >Tasks window.

      If the ping fails, PSM runs a traceroute command and displays the results. The traceroute task shows SUCCESS if the traceroute command can be run. A successful traceroute task does not mean that the destination is reachable. To see the results of the traceroute, click in the Details column of the task.

      Note: PSM also runs this test automatically when log collection or NE database backup/restore fails. In this case, the results are provided in the logs.
