Verifying Communication with Canoga Perkins OSS Server
Starting with Cross Provisioning Platform (CPP) Release 17.1R1, in addition to provisioning Juniper Networks devices, Nokia devices, and NEC’s iPASOLINK devices, the CPP application can provision services across Juniper Networks devices and Canoga Perkins network interface devices (NIDs).
You can check whether Cross Provisioning Platform can establish a communication with the CanogaView OSS.
Before you check the communication between Cross Provisioning Platform and the CanogaView operations support system (OSS), ensure that the OSS parameters are configured in the Network Management Platform application.
To verify whether Cross Provisioning Platform can establish a communication with the CanogaView OSS:
- In the Cross Provisioning Platform task pane, select CPP > Third-Party Devices.
The Third-Party Devices page appears.
- Click the Ping OSS Server icon in the command
The Select Vendor page appears.
- Select the vendor type as Canoga. Starting with Cross Provisioning Platform (CPP) Release
17.1R1, a new vendor type, Canoga, is introduced..
The primary IP address and the secondary IP address of the vendor are displayed.
- Click Ok.
The Cross Provisioning Platform application pings the primary IP address of the CanogaView OSS to establish communication. If the primary IP address is not reachable, the Cross Provisioning Platform application pings the secondary IP address to establish communication.
The Ping OSS – Status page appears, which indicates:
Whether or not the CPP system has access to the CanogaView OSS server.
Whether the primary IP address or the secondary IP address is used for establishing the communication.
