Modifying a Full Mesh Layer 3 VPN Ethernet Service

 

For a full mesh Layer 3 VPN service, you can add a new device endpoint, add or delete a UNI, change routing protocol parameters, remove or add static routes, change IP addresses, swap between BGP and static routing protocols (if service definition specifies BGP and Static), swap between OSPF and static routing protocols (if service definition specifies OSPF and Static).

Note

You cannot change the interface of an existing UNI. 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.

If there is a service template attached to the service definition, there is a link to that template at the bottom of the Endpoint Settings section of the page. For instructions on working with service templates in service orders, see Creating a Service Order Based on a Service Definition with a Template.

Modifying a service creates a new service order based on the attribute settings of the existing 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.

    The Modify Service page appears.

    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 Order name field, change the name of the modification service order, if desired.
  5. In the Add Endpoints table, click Add Endpoints.

    When you click a device UNI interface, you see the device and routing protocol settings in the right Device pane. The Add Endpoint PE Devices inventory page shows the available N-PE devices that are not part of the service.

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

    The service modification page shows the added devices with system recommended choices for UNI. To select a different UNI, see Adding a UNI Interface.

  7. Click Modify.

    The Deployment Options dialog box appears.

  8. In the Deployment Options dialog box, select one of the following:
    • Save only and check Validate to save the service modification and validate it.

    • Deploy now to deploy modified service immediately when you click, OK

    • Schedule deployment to specify a date and time to deploy the modified service later. The default time is the current date and time when you select the option.

  9. Click OK.

    The service modification deployment Job ID link appears.

  10. Click the Job ID.

    You see the service modification deployment job details in the Jobs > Job Management page. The Job Management page presents the job information by job ID, Name, Percent complete, State, Job Type, Summary, Scheduled Start, Username, and Recurrence. The State column indicates whether the modified service deployment is successful.

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 Settings 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 the green plus sign for the device that you want. An additional UNI appears in the endpoint table for the device. The UNI interface settings fields appear in the Device pane on the right.
  6. In the Device pane, select an Ethernet option from the drop-down list box.
  7. Select a UNI interface from the drop-down list box.
  8. The Interface IP field displays the interface IP address.
  9. The Autopick VLAN ID check box is selected by default to allow Network Activate to select a VLAN ID. If you deselect the Autopick VLAN ID check box, you must either enter a different value in the service VLAN ID field manually.
  10. Select a routing protocol from the drop-down list box.
  11. Click Modify.
  12. Click Modify.

    The Deployment Options dialog box appears.

  13. In the Deployment Options dialog box, select one of the following:
    • Save only and Validate to save the service modification and validate it.

    • Deploy now to deploy modified service immediately when you click, OK

    • Schedule deployment to specify a date and time to deploy the modified service later. The default time is the current date and time when you select the option.

  14. Click OK.

    The service modification deployment Job ID link appears.

  15. Click the Job ID.

    You see the service modification deployment job details in the Jobs > Job Management page. The Job Management page presents the job information by job ID, Name, Percent complete, State, Job Type, Summary, Scheduled Start, Username, and Recurrence. The State column indicates whether the modified service deployment is successful.

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 Settings 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 the red delete button for that table

    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.

    The Deployment Options dialog box appears.

  7. In the Deployment Options dialog box, select one of the following:
    • Save only and Validate to save the service modification and validate it.

    • Deploy now to deploy modified service immediately when you click, OK

    • Schedule deployment to specify a date and time to deploy the modified service later. The default time is the current date and time when you select the option.

  8. Click OK.

    The service modification deployment Job ID link appears.

  9. Click the Job ID.

    You see the service modification deployment job details in the Jobs > Job Management page. The Job Management page presents the job information by job ID, Name, Percent Complete, State, Job Type, Summary, Scheduled Start, Username, and Recurrence. The State column indicates whether the modified service deployment is successful.

To view the modified service in the network topology, select Platform > Network Monitoring > Topology > Service > NA. The parameters of the selected service is displayed.
