Cause why OSN 6800 NEs report license-related alarms

Question:
A customer provides feedback that all system control boards of 48 OSN 6800 NEs report the SYSTEM_DEF_RUNNING alarm one day. One of the NEs also reports the VERIFY_LCS_ERROR alarm.
Analysis:
1. A dedicated ASON license file must be loaded to an OSN 6800 NE to enable ASON for the NE.
2. The OSN 6800 NE periodically checks whether the license has been loaded on the system control board. If the ASON license has not been loaded, the SYSTEM_DEF_RUNNING alarm is reported.
3. If the ASON license has been loaded but is about to expire, the NE reports the LICENSE_GOINGTO_EXPIRT alarm.
4. If an incorrect ASON license has been loaded, the NE reports both the SYSTEM_DEF_RUNNING and VERIFY_LCS_ERROR alarms.
Root cause:
None
Answer:
1. Because ASON has not been enabled for the NEs, directly suppress the alarm. If ASON is required later, load a correct license file.
2. Run the license-show-file command to query license information. Suggestion and conclusion:
When ASON is not enabled, you are advised to set license-related alarms to be not monitored to avoid customer misunderstanding.
