11 AWMS Installation1. Install the following applications before install AWMS- MySQL 5.0 (It is in awms_installer_ >Third Party Installers)- JDK or (It is in awms_installer_v >Setup Files>conf>installers)- Microsoft .Net Framework 2.0 (It is in awms_installer_v >Setup Files>conf>installers)2. Install Central Control Server and Proxy Server- Install them in the same computer.- Install them in separate computers.3. Install Central Control Client4. Importing license file
35 SNMP Setup In AP (A2 and C1 GUI is shown) Before operating the AWMS, make sure the SNMP Setup have been finished in AP and keep AP and AWMS client in same IP segment.Below is an example for SNMP setup in AP.Enabled SNMPRead/Write Community are SNMP access security stringsAccess Subnet IP/Mask: AWMS proxy domainNotification Server: AWMS proxy IP address
36 Make sure the items below are same with the snmpv3 file. Automatic NE Discovery—SNMP V3For B5/B5Lite/B5 CPESNMP v3 configuration of B51Make sure the items below are same with the snmpv3 file.234657
37 Automatic NE Discovery—SNMP V3 For B5/B5Lite/B5 CPEGo to the AWMS installation path “Altai Technologies>AWMS>Proxy” and you can find the file name snmpv3. Open it in txt and make sure or change the configurations are same with the configuration of B5/B5Lite/B5 CPE.The parameters includes username, password, security, privacy password, privacy protocol. After changing the parameters in this file, you need to save it and restart AWMS proxy
38 AWMS Proxy Registration, NE finding Select Proxy->Add Proxy… and bring up the Proxy Registration window.Under the tab Description, configure the following properly:Proxy Name: The name of the Proxy name.Description: A brief description for the corresponding Proxy Server. (Optional)IP Address: The IP address of the Proxy Server.In-Service: Status of the Proxy Server. The Proxy Server is active when the box is checked under the CCS, otherwise it is inactive.
40 AWMS Proxy Registration, NE finding After the box of “SNMP Discovery Enabled” is checked, the following can be configuredunder Configuration Task:Start IP: The beginning IP address of the IP address range. The range of IP addresses isused to define the managed area under the Proxy Server.End IP: The end IP address of the IP address range.Net Mask: The subnet mask of the IP address range.Read Community String: Allows AWMS to issue “Get” and “GetNext” messagesthrough SNMP. This value should be the same as the corresponding value in NE,otherwise AWMS cannot read the configuration from the NE. By default, the value ispublic.Write Community String: Allows AWMS to issue “Set” messages through SNMP. Thisvalue should be same as the corresponding value in NE, otherwise AWMS cannot writethe configuration from the NE. By default, the value is netman.Port: The port for the Proxy Server to communicate with NEs. By default, the value is161.
41 Automatic NE Discovery—SNMP V2c For A8n/A8/A2N/C1/C1nIn Proxies and Maps Tree, select one proxy to discover NEs. Right click, select Proxy Registration…Uncheck “In-Service” checkbox and click “Save” button.Switch to the SNMP Discovery Configuration tab, fill in Start IP, End IP…Click the “Add” button. Click “Save” button.Put the registered proxy in serviceNOTE: Proxy Sever should not be In-Service before proceed to the SNMP Discovery Configuration since it cannot be modified if the corresponding Proxy Server is in service.
42 Automatic NE Discovery—SNMP V3 For B5/B5Lite/B5 CPEIn Proxies and Maps Tree, select one proxy to discover NEs. Right click, select Proxy Registration…Uncheck “In-Service” checkbox and click “Save” button.Switch to the SNMP Discovery Configuration tab, fill in Start IP, End IP…Click the “Add” button. Click “Save” button.Put the registered proxy in serviceNOTE: Proxy Sever should not be In-Service before proceed to the SNMP Discovery Configuration since it cannot be modified if the corresponding Proxy Server is in service.
43 AWMS Proxy Registration, NE finding After configuring the CCS and the Proxy (in service) properly, the Proxy will begin NE discovery automatically.When the Proxy(s) discovers unregistered NEs, the NEs will be shown as Unregistered NEs under the defined Proxy in the Network Topology Tree.Select the Unregistered NE, Right Click, select on “Register As Managed”. Then you can use AWMS to manage the AP.
44 NE Registration Managed: The NE you want to manage. Can be configured by AWMS.External: The NE is not part of managednetwork.Rogue: The unauthorized NE which maypotentially be a security breach.

67 Security Management(Role Setting) In the Function Set List, there are four defined function sets:1. Monitor users could only monitor the status of the network and acknowledge the alarms.2. Besides monitoring the network, Operator users are allowed to have some levels of access right of configuration.3. Admin users have even higher access right of configuration than Operator users.4. Root users not only have the access right to configure all the settings but also could create new user accounts and function sets.
68 Security Management(Role Setting) Besides the four defined function sets,users can create their own function sets:1. Right click anywhere on the Function Set List window and select Add Function Set….Alternatively click Add… bottom in the right-lower corner of the Function Set List window.2. Enter Function Set Name and Description in the pop-up Create Function Set window.3. Select the Authorized Functions that you want to include in this function set.4. Click Save to save the setting, click Cancel to quit without save.

Right click on anywhere of the User Management interface, select Add User….Alternatively, select Administration->Add User….2. Enter Username, Full Name, Description and Password. Select the proper Function Set.3. Click OK to save.
70 Software Management (firmware upgrade) 1.Select the NE(s) you wish to upgrade from the Network Topology Tree View. All the NEs selected must match the criteria specified above in order for the option to be available.2. Right-click on the NE and select More Options->Update Firmware… (or from the main menu, select Network Element->More Options->Update Firmware…) to bring up the(Mass) Firmware Upgrade window:
