Configuring Automatic MIP Creation on the BTI810 Network Elements
When configuring connectivity fault management (CFM) for Ethernet services on BTI810 network elements, you may need to enable automatic MIP creation. MIPs are required for the link trace and loopback capabilities. If you do not plan on using link trace or loopback, then you should not enable automatic MIP creation. There are limits to the number of MIPs that can be created on BTI810 network elements. See the BTI800 Series Technical Product Guide for details.
- Edit the
/var/local/ems9001/conf/override-common.propertiesfile contains many settings that affect the behaviour of the PSM server. Only those attributes explicitly described in this guide should be changed. Changing any other attributes may have unintended consequences, and must only be performed under the guidance of Juniper Networks Support.
- Set the
ethernetActivation.bti800.autoCreateMipsattribute as follows:
To enable automatic MIP creation, set the value to
To disable automatic MIP creation, set the value to
For example, to enable automatic MIP creation:
By default, automatic MIP creation is disabled.
- Save and close the file.
- Track changes to the
/var/local/ems9001/conf/override-common.propertiesfile with Git by committing this update to the Git repository.
[user ~]# cd /var/local/ems9001/conf [user conf]# git commit -m "Configured automatic MIP creation. By firstname.lastname@example.org." override-common.properties
This update can now be seen in the Git log. For more information on Git, see Using Git to Track override-common.properties.
- Changes made to the
override-common.propertiesfile do not take effect until the PSM server is restarted. To restart the server, enter the following command:
The restart command successfully completes when the 'Ems-' processes all change to the running state. Type <ctrl> c to exit the Linux watch command window.
