Configuring NetRef for Primary or Backup Operation

 

NetRef primary backup operation involves a new packet flow from the primary node to all the backup nodes. These timing packets are sent at a rate of approximately 4.5 packets per second.

Note

In this topic, the terms Primary and Backup refer to primary and client operations or nodes, respectively.

To configure network node reference for primary or backup operation:

  1. From the Main Menu, select 2) Node Synchronization
  2. Select 6) NetRef
  3. From the NetRef Menu, 1) NetRef.
  4. Enter 1 to select Primary mode or 2 to select Member mode.
  5. Select 2) Remote Address and specify the IP address of the NetRef client.
Note

When a node is configured for NetRef backup operation, the remote address must be configured to that of the primary node. Likewise, the NetRef primary node must be configured with the IP address of the NetRef backup node. A NetRef primary node can be configured to send data packets to up to 10 NetRef backup nodes.
