    Viewing Service Recovery Instance Details

    The Service Recovery window displays the recovered services according to service type. The service recovery report for each service is displayed in a table. You can view the individual and fine-grained details of the services recovered by double-clicking the name of a service instance from the table displayed in the Service Recovery window.

    To view the details of a service recovery instance:

    1. From the View selector, select Service View.

      The workspaces that are applicable to routing and tunnel services are displayed.

    2. Click the Build icon in Service View of the Connectivity Services Director banner.

      The functionalities that you can configure in Build mode are displayed on the Tasks pane.

    3. In the View pane, select the Network Services > Connectivity node without expanding the tree and selecting a type of service.

      The tasks that are applicable for the different connectivity services are displayed on the Tasks pane.

    4. In the Network Services > Connectivity Tasks pane, select Service Recovery > Recover Services. The Service Recovery window is displayed.

      The Details button enables you to view information about a service selected in the Recovered Services tab of the Service Recovery window.

    5. Double-click a service instance in the Service Recovery window to open the View Service Details window. This window contains several sections or panels that provide details about the recovered services.

      The View Service Details window displays information about a service selected in the Recovered Services tab of the Service Recovery window. You can view detailed, in-depth information about a selected service.

      The Service Details window is divided into three sections—Basic Details, Advanced Details, and Endpoint Details. The service tree contains the service name as the root node. The device node is the child of the service node and it contains the provisioned UNIs as the child nodes. The details panel in the Endpoint Details table displays configuration parameters and their corresponding values for the service in the tree and based on the service type.

      Under the Basic Details section, the general details about the node details are shown. Also, the device configuration parameters are displayed. Under the Advanced Details section, which you can open or close by clicking the View Less or View More toggle links, the advanced connectivity settings between sites in the service provider network are shown, such as route distinguisher and VRF route label details. Under the Endpoint Details table, the configuration parameters of the UNI are displayed. The right pane displays the details corresponding to the node or element you selected on the left pane.

      Basic Details

      This section is applicable for all types of services and displays the following details.

      • Name—Name of the selected service

      • Customer—Name of the customer associated with the service.

      • Service Definition—Name of the service definition that is used to create the service.

      • Service Type—Selected service type, such as P2P, L3VPN, or VPLS.

      • Comments—User-defined description of the recovered service.

      • Signalling—Type of signaling, namely, BGP or LDP.

      • Order Type—Type of the service order, which is indicated as Recovery to signify a recovered service.

      • Status—Status of the recovered service, such as Partial or Recovered.

      • Recovered By—Name of the user that performed the service recovery operation.

      Advanced Details

      This section displays the advanced, fine-grained connectivity settings between sites, such as the configured route distinguisher, VRF route label. The parameters displayed under this section are similar to the advanced parameters displayed in the wizard for service order creation.

      VLAN Normalization

      Type of normalization for VLAN IDs, such as Q-in-Q or dot1q.

      Customer Traffic Type

      Type of restrictions placed on the traffic that can be transported across the network by the associated service, such as whether the associated service is restricted to transporting just one VLAN across the network or transporting a VLAN range.

      Unmanaged IP

      If the Unmanaged IP field includes a valid IP address, the selected service is valid but the other end is an ummanaged device. If the field displays Unmanaged IP, the IP address of the unmanaged device is unknown. You must provide the IP address.

      Note: If Service Recovery finds an endpoint attached to a recovered service for a device that was not selected for Service Recovery, the endpoint is reported as an Unmanaged IP. The endpoint is recovered and attached to the service when Service Recovery is executed on the particular device.

      This field is displayed for P2P services only.

      Unmanaged Interface

      If one endpoint is an unmanaged device, the interface information is unknown. You must provide the interface for the endpoint.

      This field is displayed for P2P services only.

      VPLS ID

      VPLS ID of the recovered service

      This field is displayed for VPLS services only.
