Feature Key Map Sync for EWSD Only

Feature Key Map syncs bring the Feature Key Maps (FKM) pre-programmed into the EWSD switches by the switch technicians into the cairs.net database.  The initial sync brings in all FKM’s and the subsequent syncs checks for FKM’s not within the cairs.net database.  We classify the missing FKM’s as ‘out of sync’ since they are on the switch but not in the cairs.net database.  Cairs.net offers you the option to view the ‘out of sync’ data and import it into you cairs.net database synchronizing the two databases.  (Note:  If you want to add additional Feature Key Maps into the switch, you must add those directly into the switch.  Please refer to your switch technicians as Cairs.net only imports what is already in the switch.)

Performing a Feature Key Map Sync

You can get the switch Feature Key Map (FKM) for EWSD switch types by performing a FKM sync.  A FKM sync can be run automatically by setting up a Sync Schedule  (refer to the ‘Creating a Sync Schedule’ section) or run manually.  To run a FKM Sync manually, complete the following steps:

1.       Click the System Admin menu.

2.       In the Navigation pane, click the plus (+) sign next to Data Sync Center to expand the menu items.

3.       Click EWSD Switch Sync Project.

4.       The Switch Sync Project list opens to the right.  Within the list, double click the project to view.

5.       The Switch Sync – [Switch Recurrence] window opens.  Within the FKM Sync ribbon group, click the Get Switch FKM button. 

6.       Click Yes to the Send Script to Switch message.  Cairs.net executes the FKM sync.

Viewing FKM Sync Results

After a FKM sync, you can view all ‘in-sync’ FKMs (records in both cairs.net and the switch) and ‘out-of-sync’ (records missing in cairs.net but in the switch).

Skip steps #1 through #5 if you have just completed a manual sync and/or you are already in the Switch Sync window.

1.       Click the System Admin menu.

2.       In the Navigation pane, click the plus (+) sign next to Data Sync Center to expand the menu items.

3.       Click EWSD Switch Sync Project.

4.       The Switch Sync Project list opens to the right.  Within the list, double click the project to view.

5.       The Switch Sync – [Switch Recurrence] window opens. 

6.       To view the in-sync FKM data (data in the cairs.net database and the switch), click the In Sync button within the FKM Sync ribbon group.  The Sync Details pane opens displaying the set device records.

7.       To view the out-of-sync FKM data (data in cairs.net but not in the switch database or data within the switch but not in the cairs.net database), click the upper portion of the Out of Sync button within the Port Sync ribbon group.  The Sync Details pane opens displaying the out-of-sync data. 

8.       To resolve these discrepancies refer to the ‘Resolving FKM Sync Discrepancies’ section.

9.       To exit, click Close. 

Resolving FKM Sync Discrepancies

To resolve out-of-sync FKM data, cairs.net offers an import function that brings in the FKMs from the switch into the cairs.net database.

Skip steps #1 through #5 if you have just completed a manual sync and/or you are already in the Switch Sync window.

1.       Click the System Admin menu.

2.       In the Navigation pane, click the plus (+) sign next to Data Sync Center to expand the menu items.

3.       Click on EWSD Switch Sync Project.

4.       The Switch Sync Project list opens to the right.  Within the list, double click the project to view.

5.       The Switch Sync – [Switch Recurrence] window opens.  Double click the sync project

6.       To view the out-of-sync data (data in the switch but not in cairs.net), within the FKM Sync ribbon group, click the Out of Sync button.

7.       The Sync Details pane opens displaying the out-of-sync FKM data.

8.       To resolve all discrepancies at once and import all out-of-sync ports into cairs.net, click the lower portion of the Out of Sync button (within the FKM Sync ribbon group) to access a dropdown list.  From the list, select Import All.   

9.       To resolve individual records one by one, double-click a record to review.

10.   The Switch Sync window opens displaying two panes:

·         Cairs Data pane – displays the FKM details if the record is in the cairs.net database and not in the switch.

·         Switch Data pane – displays the FKM details if the record is in the switch and not in cairs.net.

11.   If the information within the cairs.net pane is populated, the FKM exists within the cairs.net database and not in the switch.  You can delete the set from cairs.net by clicking the Delete button within the Switch Sync Import popup.  There is no undo button so once you click delete the set is gone. 

12.   If the information within the switch pane is populated, the FKM exists within the switch but not in the cairs.net database.  You can import the individual FKM by clicking the Import button within the Switch Sync Import popup. 

13.   To exit, click Close.
