Trouble Communicating with Cisco SONET ONS 15454

We still use a SONET ONS 15454 as a main backbone for a few legacy systems.  We had a Windows 2000 computer which monitored the network using the CTC interface.   For several days after 1/1/2020 the CTC interface displayed nodes which kept on randomly going offline.  We however knew that the systems were still online, so we understood that it was a faulty reading.

 

I eventually restarted the java applet, and this causes a BSOD with a kernel error.  Restarting the workstation confirmed that the kernel was corrupted, and it would not boot up into Windows.

 

After rebuilding a Windows 2000 computer, and reinstalling the proper Java 1.3.1 install, the CTC interface does load up into a login screen for the SONET, but upon logging in, slowly finds the nodes, but never brings up the network map, or any other data.

 

Am I maybe missing something (maybe another plugin for IE5 that I need, which I missed besides java?)?  Or is it possible that the firmware on the ONS 15454 was effected by Y2020, and thus corrupted?

 

Thanks for any ideas!

Scott,
