Detailed job description and what the work will accomplish. (1)
This MOP describes the necessary steps for an LDAP engineer to upgrade the MTAS API to R2 (Release
2). The MTAS API is responsible for connecting MTAS to its LDAP backend. The MTAS API translates
XML from MTAS into LDAP for the LDAP server and vise versa.
This MTAS API update implements the default attribute enhancement requested by Verizon Wireless. Two
updates will be performed in each region, first for the primary LDAP server and, upon success,
subsequently to the secondary LDAP server. Regions will be updated one at a time reusing this MOP for
each region as well as the staging environment.
During the upgrade MTAS provisioning will be interrupted and MTAS will need to be disabled by VZW
MTAS Team. Therefore an MTAS provisioning outage can be expected for the entire maintenance window.
MMSC from the subscriber's perspective will not be impacted.
Master 1 and Primary Server are used interchangeably in this document. Master 2 and Secondary Server
are used interchangeably in this document

Summary of Procedure & Timeline
Preparation (To be completed prior to maintenance window - 1 hour)
1. Verify r2.deployment.tar is available.
2. Have available the passwords of the required users: (see detailed section)
3. Personnel performing upgrade connect/s via ssh to servers to be upgraded, both primary and
secondary master's for the region being upgraded. Verify connectivity to web servers
administration and MTAS API root directory via http. Also verify DS administrative console access.
4. VZW to provide MMSC and MTAS support for both Staging and Production deployments.
5. Obtain 2 test MDNs (one in NPA starting with even digit and the other in NPA starting with odd
digit) for region to be upgraded to R2
6. Verify Verizon Wireless readiness to support handset tests
7. Perform initial handset test.

How to use a cleanroom mop properly? The mop must go over every surface of the cleanroom wall, molding, ceiling, return grills, doors, window, handles, etc. It is usually easiest to use lint-free cloths dampened with the cleaning agent to clean molding, door handles, and other areas that are not entirely flat.
