    Validating the Pending Configuration of a CFM Service Order

    This procedure validates a service order but does not push the configuration to the device. Use this procedure to perform the following tasks:

    • Validate a service request in the REQUESTED state.
    • Validate a service request in the INVALID state after making necessary configuration changes on one or more PE devices associated with the service order.

    When you create a service order, it is automatically validated in Connectivity Services Director. However, if subsequent changes to service configuration attributes and settings have occurred for the devices or endpoints to which they are associated, you can use the functionality to validate pending service order configuration. You can validate the configuration of a service order that is in the requested state, the scheduled state, the invalid state, or the failed deployment state

    To schedule a service order for validation, follow these steps:

    1. From the View selector, select Device View.

      The workspaces that are applicable to this view are displayed.

    2. From the Junos Space user interface, click the Deploy icon on the Connectivity Services Director banner.

      The functionalities that you can configure in this mode are displayed in the task pane.

    3. From the View pane, click the plus sign (+) beside the My Network item in the View pane to expand the tree and select the device node you want for which you want to create the LFM profile.

      The device type selected within the device model tree is highlighted.

    4. Select the check box beside a service to launch the Manage Service Orders page in the lower half of the pane. The service orders associated with the selected service are displayed. You can perform different actions, such as validating or discarding configuration.
    5. From the Tasks pane, select OAM > CFM .

      The top part of the right pane displays the Manage CFM Services page, with the table of services, and the bottom part of the right pane displays the Manage CFM Service Orders page, with the table of service orders.

    6. From the Manage CFM Service Orders page, select the service order you want to validate and save.
    7. Open the Actions menu and click Validate Pending Configuration.

      The Schedule Service Request Validation window appears.

    8. You can validate a service now or at some future time:
      • To validate the service immediately, select Validate now, and click OK.
      • To validate the service at a later time, select Validate later, select a date and time for deployment, and then click OK.

        Note: When specifying a time to validate the service, the time field specifies the time kept by the server, but in the time zone of the client.

      After scheduling the service order for validation, the provisioning software begins validating the service order.

    9. You can use the Job Management window to view details about the service validation.
