    Modifying a Multipoint-to-Multipoint Ethernet Service

    For a multipoint-to-multipoint service, you can change the bandwidth or MTU of a specific UNI, add or delete a UNI, change C-VLAN range values, and change advanced settings for a device endpoint or add a new device endpoint.

    You cannot change the interface of an existing UNI. Neither can you change 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-to-multipoint (full mesh) Ethernet service:

    Adding an Endpoint

    To add an endpoint to a multipoint-to-multipoint Ethernet service:

    1. In the Network Activate Task pane, select Service Provisioning > Manage Services.
    2. In the Manage Services page, select the service to which you want to add an endpoint.
    3. Open the Actions menu and select Modify Service.

      Current service settings appear in the main display area. The General Information 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 Information 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 Information panel provides an option to enable the CFM service. You can select the CFM definition from the CFM Definition list, if desired.

    6. In the Add Endpoints table, click Add Endpoints.

      The Add Endpoint PE Devices window shows available N-PE devices that are not part of the service.

    7. Select the devices on which you want to add new endpoints, then click Next.

      The service modification window shows the added devices with system recommended choices for UNI.

    8. Click Modify.
    9. In the Deployment Options window, select one of the following:
      • Save the change without scheduling it.
      • Schedule the change for immediate deployment.
      • Schedule the change for later deployment.
    10. Click OK.
    11. Use the Job Management workspace to monitor the progress and status of the deployment. See Viewing Jobs in the Junos Space Network Application Platform User Guide for details.

    Adding a UNI Interface

    To add a UNI on a device that is already part of a multipoint-to-multipoint Ethernet service:

    1. In the Network Activate task pane, select Service Provisioning > Manage Services.
    2. In the Manage Services page, select the service to which you want to add a UNI.
    3. Open the Actions menu and select Modify Service.

      Current service settings appear in the main display area. The General Information 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. In the Action column of the Add Endpoints table, click UNI Interface for the device, as shown in the following example, which adds a UNI to the device.

      An additional UNI appears in the endpoint table.

    6. If the interface you selected in the previous step is already configured (duplicate) you must either manually enter a different value in the service VLAN ID fields, or check the Autopick VLAN ID field.
    7. Select an interface from the UNI Interface column.
    8. Click Modify.
    9. In the Deployment Options window, select one of the following options:
      • Save the change without scheduling it.
      • Schedule the change for immediate deployment.
      • Schedule the change for later deployment.
    10. Click OK.
    11. Use the Job Management workspace to monitor the progress and status of the deployment. See Viewing Jobs in the Junos Space Network Application Platform User Guide for details.

    Deleting a UNI Interface and Deleting an Endpoint

    To delete a UNI from a multipoint-to-multipoint Ethernet service:

    1. In the Network Activate task pane, select Service Provisioning > Manage Services.
    2. In the Manage Services page, select the service from which you want to delete a UNI.
    3. Open the Actions menu and select Modify Service.

      Current service settings appear in the main display area. The General Information 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. In the Action column of the Endpoint Settings table, find the UNI you want to delete and click Delete UNI Interface for that table row.

      The selected UNI is removed from the table. If the deleted UNI was the only UNI selected on that device, then the device is deleted from the Endpoint Settings table.

    6. Click Modify.
    7. In the Deployment Options window, select one of the following:
      • Save the change without scheduling it.
      • Schedule the change for immediate deployment.
      • Schedule the change for later deployment.
    8. Click OK.
    9. Use the Job Management workspace to monitor the progress and status of the deployment. See Viewing Jobs in the Junos Space Network Application Platform User Guide for details.

    Changing the Endpoint Bandwidth

    To change the rate limit or bandwidth for an endpoint of a multipoint-to-multipoint Ethernet service:

    1. In the Network Activate task pane, select Service Provisioning > Manage Services.
    2. In the Manage Services page, select the service on which you want to change the bandwidth of an endpoint.
    3. Open the Actions menu and select Modify Service.

      Current service settings appear in the main display area. The General Information 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. In the Action column of the Endpoint Settings table, click on the Bandwidth entry for the UNI on which you want to change the bandwidth.
    6. From the list of valid bandwidth settings, select the setting you want, then click Modify.
    7. In the Deployment Options window, select one of the following:
      • Save the change without scheduling it.
      • Schedule the change for immediate deployment.
      • Schedule the change for later deployment.
    8. Click OK.
    9. Use the Job Management workspace to monitor the progress and status of the deployment. See Viewing Jobs in the Junos Space Network Application Platform User Guide for details.
