Configuring Ethernet Services Path Selection Through Non-ERPS Nodes
Use this procedure to configure Ethernet services path selection through non-ERPS nodes when PSM auto-provisions NNIs.
When using the Auto-Provision NNIs feature, PSM can be configured to use a more restrictive or a more liberal set of selection criteria for selecting internal NNIs.
- 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
ethernetServices.autoRouting.nonErpsSegments.singlePathattribute as follows:
To force PSM to select a single linear path through non-ERPS nodes, set the value to
true. Make this selection only if there is a single path through non-ERPS nodes to the endpoint.
To let PSM make a more liberal NNI selection through non-ERPS nodes, set the value to
false. This may cause PSM to select more NNIs than is necessary. This is the default setting.
For example, to force the selection of a single linear path:
- 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 single path selection for non-ERPS nodes. 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.
