    Deploying Services Configuration to Devices

    When you make configuration changes in Build mode, the changes are not deployed to devices automatically. You must manually deploy the changes to devices in Deploy mode.

    To start deploying configuration changes:

    1. From the View selector, select Service View. The workspaces that are applicable to this view are displayed.
    2. Click Deploy in the Connectivity Services Director banner.
    3. Click the plus sign (+) beside Connectivity to expand the tree in the View pane and view the list of service types.
    4. Select the type of service, such as P2P, L2VPN, or VPLS, for which you want to deploy the service order.
    5. In the Tasks pane, select Service Provisioning > Deploy Services. The Manage Service Deployment window is displayed in the bottom part of the right pane.

      Tip: From Build mode of Service View, in the View pane, if you select the Connectivity item in the tree under Network Services, without expanding the tree and selecting a specific service type, such as P2P Services, L3VPN Services, or VPLS Services, the top pane displays a set of five pie charts that enable you to view the different service orders configured, and their associated audit and monitoring statuses. The FA Status chart displays the functional audit status for the service orders. The Device State graph displays the statuses of devices on which services are being provisioned and commissioned. The Fault Status chart displays the connectivity fault management details for the service orders. The SLA Status chart displays the service-level agreement details for the service orders. The PM Status chart displays the performance management details for the service orders. The count or percentage of service orders in the pie chart segments sum up to the total number of configured service orders. Mouse over each segment of the pie to view the number corresponding to the percentage of service orders for each of the charts. These charts provide a visual overview of customers and service orders on your network, and enables you to quickly access related and commonly needed information. For example, you can check for failed service orders and then access a list of failed requests so you can begin to take restoration measure.

      In Build mode of Service View, from the View pane, if you select the Network Services node and do not expand the Network Services > Connectivity tree, the top pane displays a pie chart that enables you to view and examine the different services configured for devices, and the types of service protocols configured. The Services by Type graph displays the count of services for each type of service definition. Mouse over each segment of the pie to view the number corresponding to the percentage of service orders for each of the charts. This chart provides a visual overview of customers and service orders on your network, and enables you to quickly access related and commonly needed information. For example, you can check for failed service orders and then access a list of failed requests so you can begin to take restoration measure.

      The following fields are displayed in this window:

      • Name—Unique name assigned to the service.

      • Customer—Name of the customer for which the service is provided.

      • State—Status of the service order. Service orders can be one of the following states:

        • Completed—The service order has been successfully deployed.

        • Scheduled for deployment—The service provisioner has scheduled the service order for deployment.

        • Deployment Failed—An attempted service deployment was not successfully completed or failed an audit.

        • In Progress—The Connectivity Services Director application is in the process of deploying the service.

        • Requested—The service provisioner has created the service order, but has not yet attempted to deploy it or schedule it for deployment.

        • Invalid—The service order is not valid.

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

      • Created By—Name of the user that created the service order.

      • Created Date—Date and time at which the service order was created.

    Selecting Configuration Deployment Options

    Based on the approval mode, you can choose to deploy the device configuration changes in the following ways:

    • When you select the auto approval mode, the page Devices with Pending Changes open. From the Devices with Pending Changes page, you can:

      • Deploy configuration changes immediately by selecting one or more devices and clicking Deploy Now. For more information, see Deploying Configuration Changes to Devices Immediately.

      • Schedule configuration deployment by selecting one or more devices and clicking Schedule Deploy. For more information, see Scheduling Configuration Deployment.

      • View configuration changes that are pending on a device by clicking View in the Configuration Changes column.

      • Validate that the pending changes for a device are compatible with the device’s configuration by selecting up to ten devices and clicking Validate Pending Configuration Changes. For more information, see Validating Configuration.

      • Discard the pending configuration changes. For more information, see Discarding the Pending Configurations .

    Validating Configuration

    When you deploy configuration changes to a device, validation checks are performed to validate that the pending changes are compatible with the device. You can also perform this validation without deploying.

    Note: You can also verify the configuration from the Build mode by clicking Tasks > Domain Management > Validate Pending Configuration.

    To view the configuration of such service orders:

    1. From the View selector, select Service View. The workspaces that are applicable to routing and tunnel services are displayed.
    2. Click the Deploy icon in the Service View of the Connectivity Services Director banner. The functionalities that you can configure in this mode are displayed in the task pane.
    3. From the Network Services > Connectivity task pane, select Service Provisioning > Deploy Services. The Manage Service Deployment page is displayed on the right pane.
