    Modifying a Point-to-Multipoint Ethernet Service

    For a point-to-multipoint service, you can add a spoke or a hub, change the role of a device from hub to spoke or spoke to hub, change the bandwidth or MTU of a specific UNI, or add or delete a UNI.

    You cannot change the interface of an existing UNI or the service  VLAN ID.

    To perform the equivalent of changing the interface on an existing UNI, add a new UNI with the desired interface, and then delete the old UNI.

    After modifying a service, the configuration audit and functional audit information is cleared and the functional audit status is set to pending.

    Modifying a service creates a new service order based on the attribute settings of the existing service.

    The following topics provide instructions for modifying a multipoint Ethernet (VPLS) service:

    Note: When you modify a service or a service order, the read-only fields in the different pages of the wizard for service or service order modification are grayed out to indicate that you cannot modify those attributes.

    Adding a Spoke

    To add an endpoint configured as a spoke to a multipoint Ethernet service:

    1. in the Network Services > Connectivity view pane, select Service Provisioning > Manage Services.
    2. In the Manage Services page, select the point-to-multipoint service to which you want to add a spoke.
    3. Click the Modify icon at the top of the table of previously created service orders.

      Current service settings appear in the main display area. The General Settings box contains a unique name for the service order that will request the change.

    4. In the service Order name field, change the name of the modification service order, if desired.
    5. If you have configured the CFM, the General Settings panel provides an option to disable the CFM service. You can select the Disable CFM check box to disable the CFM service, if desired.

      If you have not configured the CFM, the General Settings panel provides an option to enable the CFM service. You can select the CFM definition from the OAM Profile list, if desired.

    6. Click the Node Settings button to view the endpoints or devices that are associated with the service.
    7. In the Service Nodes table, click Add.

      The Choose Endpoints dialog box shows available N-PE devices that are not part of the service.

      The dialog box is divided into two halves. The top half of the dialog box displays the devices that you can associate with the service. Based on the devices you select in the top half of the dialog box, the interfaces that are present in the selected device are displayed in the lower half of the dialog box. Select the check boxes next to the interfaces that you want to associate with the service.

    8. In the Endpoint Settings table, check Spoke for the device you just added.
    9. Click Finish to complete the modification of the service order and save the settings.
    10. In Deploy mode of the Service View of Connectivity Services Director, select one of the following from the Manage Services page:
      • Schedule the change for immediate deployment.

      • Schedule the change for later deployment.

    6. In the Service Nodes table, click Add.

      The Choose Endpoints window shows available N-PE devices that are not part of the service.

      The dialog box is divided into two halves. The top half of the dialog box displays the devices that you can associate with the service. Based on the devices you select in the top half of the dialog box, the interfaces that are present in the selected device are displayed in the lower half of the dialog box. Select the check boxes next to the interfaces that you want to associate with the service.

    7. In the Endpoint Settings table, check Spoke for the device you just added.
