The Configuration Management of the Network Elements is an integral part of the Element Management Application. In this section, you learn to build Configuration Application for configuring the card details using Configuration Wizard. The Application built using Configuration Wizard is packaged as NAR (NMS ARchive) and imported in Web NMS EclipsePlugin. The Configuration Application is invoked from the Web NMS Client by right-clicking DSLAM Device map node and selecting the menu item Configure Device. The application invoked from the DSLAM Device map node is shown in the figure given below.
To learn the basics on using Configuration Wizard, refer to the following topic available.
Opening Configuration Wizard
Open the AdventNet Configuration Wizard using the file startConfigurationWizard.bat/sh present in the <Client Builder Home>/bin directory. The <Client Builder Home> is the ClientBuilder directory present under <Web NMS Home>/StudioTools directory.
Creating the Project and Loading Device Information
Select File-->New-->Project to invoke the "Project Details" dialog to create a new configuration project.
Provide the "Project Name" field with the value "ebonConfig" if it does not exist.
Provide the "Package Name" field with the value "com.adventnet.ebon.ems".
Click OK to create the project in the projects folder under the <Client Builder Home>. You can find the project named "ebonConfig" in the project tree.
Load the Dslam-MIB under the <Client Builder Home>/mibs directory using the load XML/MIB button . Similarly load the RFC1213-MIB.
Note: The eBonConfig project built using the steps mentioned in this tutorial exists by default (under <Client Builder Home>/projects). You can open the existing eBonConfig project and package it as a NAR and proceed. Otherwise, you must back up the existing eBonConfig project into some other directory and create a new eBonConfig project following the steps given above. Or you may create a project with different name and follow the steps given to create the project.
Steps Involved in Building Project and Packaging the Application
The steps involved in building the Configuration Management Application, Packaging the Application as NAR, and importing the NAR into Web NMS Eclipse Plugin are given below.
