Avaya Diagnostics: Config Validate Tool R2 Trial Discussion
 
All,

This thread is being created to facilitate discussions around the Avaya Diagnostic Portal's Config Validate Tool R2 trial currently underway.

Please feel free to post topics related to the trial. What worked, what didn't, and anything else that comes to mind.

The purpose of this discussion thread is to share experiences and help each other out in making the most effective use of these diagnostic capabilities.

Thanks,

Roberto Faria

Some assets do not show up in Config Validate Tool
 
Config Validate Tool R2 utilizes Siebel data to determine if assets are remotely connectable. It leverages the uniquely assigned asset's SEID to reach the particular device over modem or SAL.

If you are not seeing a particular asset after launching CVT and entering the SoldTo/FL, it may point to a problem with the asset registration for remote connectivity. This is typically completed during the technical onboarding phase of asset registration.

With the launch of the Global Registration Tool R3.0, SEIDs can be allocated in a matter of minutes using the Technical On-boarding wizard therein.

An overview of the new GRT system can be found here:
http://support.avaya.com/registration

The GRT tool itself can be found here:

If anyone has any questions around this, just let me know.

Thanks,

Roberto

ITSS Ticketing Portal
 
1 Attachment(s)
Trial Participants,

If you encounter any connectivity related issues which prevents you from using the Config Validate Tool, the first step would be to open an ITSS ticket to alert the Avaya Connectivity support team of potential remote access problems.

I have attached to this post a short guide on how to open a Partner ITSS ticket.

Thanks,

Roberto

We have received reports of a system error with the following exception highlighted in the PDF report's Session Details section:

11/26/2013 18:16:19 GMT] (+459.2s) The product connection has failed. The tool is unable to run validate script.
Internal Error Occurred. com.avaya.a2r.services.connection.exceptions.Promp tNotMatchedException:
java.io.IOException: Time expired, no match found

You may obtain further information about what failed by looking at the PDF report on the Support Site.

If this is the same error you are receiving, there is a fix being rolled into the production systems this week. I will post an update as soon as I've confirmed its release.

If it is something else, please post the error message from the Session Details section of the PDF report, and I'll research the problem further.

Thanks,

Roberto

Remote Access Issues
 
Another issue that has been seen over the past week is failures with the following information in the PDF report Session Details section:

Connection attempt 1 failed for: <SEID> 0 -- com.avaya.jconnect.applicationapi.ConnectionFailed Exception
Connection attempt 2 failed for: <SEID> 0 -- com.avaya.jconnect.applicationapi.ConnectionFailed Exception
Connection attempt 3 failed for: <SEID> 0 -- com.avaya.jconnect.applicationapi.ConnectionFailed Exception
Failed all connections attempts for <SEID>

Where SEID = (xxx)xxx-xxxx - your device's solution element identifier.

In reviewing the PIE/SAL polling data for the SEID's Asset, one of the causes of this is that the Avaya Product Connect system cannot reach the device through the SAL gateway (or modem bank). For SAL, it is worthwhile checking your Managed Elements list in your SAL Gateway and ensure it has all the information that was used to provision the products via the GRT tool.

For information on how to provision the products in the Managed Elements list in SAL, see the SAL Gateway Implementation Guide (Pages 69-75 - Managed Element Configuration)

Thanks,

Roberto

Nicknames - How to create customized names for your assets
 
It was raised over the past few weeks that the assets displayed by the CVT tool are not user-friendly. The good news is that you are able to give the asset a nickname that you can relate to and therefore easily identify the device you want to work on.

To set up asset nicknames, you can use this Web Tip Article: Managing Assets and Serial Numbers

If you have any issues, just let me know.

Avaya Diagnostic Portal Landing Page
 
We have some good enhancements on their way.

The Avaya Diagnostic Portal is being redesigned to be a landing page where all new Diagnostic tools can be found.

This new ADP Landing page will be launched in conjunction with Config Validate Tool R2, and those that are part of the CVT R2 trial will be the first to see it.

I will send all trial participants an e-mail with a sneak-peek at what the new ADP Landing page will look like.

The new ADP Landing page will become active on December 19th. More details to follow.

Roberto
