A wide area link model represents a wide area connection between two router interfaces and includes:
  • A WA_Link model that appears in the topology view.
  • A WA_Segment model that exists within the WA_Link model and connects the two router interfaces together.
To place a wide area link into maintenance or hibernation mode, you have to modify settings for both the WA_Link and WA_Segment models.
In the Component Detail panels of both the WA_Link and the WA_Segment models, set the In Maintenance or In Hibernation setting to Yes to place the wide area link model into maintenance mode
or hibernation mode. Management of the wide area link is suspended while regular management of the connected router interfaces continues.
When in maintenance or hibernation mode, both the WA_Link and WA_Segment models have a brown condition. The two connected router interfaces remain managed, and events and alarms are still generated on them.
You can also put the router interfaces into maintenance mode, which allows full customizable control over how events and alarms are generated for wide area links. See Place Interface Models in Maintenance or Hibernation Mode.
To take a wide area link model out of maintenance or hibernation mode, modify settings for both the WA_Link and WA_Segment models accordingly.
