Creating LSP Configlets for All Routers

 
  1. To create LSP configlets for all routers, make sure you are in the Design action mode. (The configlet generation capability is not available in View mode.)

  2. Select Design > Confligets/Delta > LSP Configlet for the following window:

    Figure 1: LSP Configlet Window

    Field

    Description

    Target Directory

    This is the directory in which the LSP configlet will be saved.

    File Format

    Specify whether the configlet should be saved as Router Config Statements or in XML format.

    Node/Tunnel Selection

    Select the node and tunnel that you wish to generate a configlet for. From the first pull-down box, select the node. The tunnels at that node will then be populated in the second pull-down box. Choose a specific tunnel, or “All”.

    Update Tunnel Names

    Tunnels with a Cisco router as the head-end will automatically be renamed if the tunnel name is not in the format “Tunnel<number>”. For all such tunnels, the “Update Tunnel Names” option allows the user to use a customized numbering scheme. Refer to Creating a Tunnel Numbering Scheme for more details on specifying the numbering scheme.

    Filter Only Nodes/Tunnels with changes

    This option will only generate LSP configlets for the Nodes/Tunnels that were actually modified, as opposed to all Nodes/Tunnels.

    Default Statement(s)

    Use this space to specify any statements to be included in the configlet.

    Submit

    Submit an LSP configlet generation task and save the configlet to the target directory.

    View

    View the existing configuration file for the selected router. This button is not available if more than one router is selected.`

  3. In the first Node/Tunnel Selection box, select “All” to create configlets for all nodes. Note that you can also select a specific tunnel source node to create configlets for. Then you can select a specific tunnel in the second selection box.

  4. You can add additional statements for inclusion in the configlet by entering them in the appropriate tab: Cisco or Juniper. This process can be facilitated by specifying template files for particular tunnels, as described in Using Tunnel Templates.

  5. Click Submit to generate the configlet in the Target Directory.

  6. You can view the generated configlets from the File Manager by navigating to the chosen target directory (named “LSP” by default). You may need to click on the Refresh button within the File Manager to see the new LSP directory. Inside the LSP directory you will find a configlet named after the router and possibly interface to which the configlet applies. Double-click it to view the configlet in a text editor.
