    Configuring the Mobile Interface of an Access Point Name

    This procedure describes how to use maintenance mode to modify attributes of the mobile interface for an access point name (APN). You must first halt new sessions from being started and verify that there are no active sessions remaining.

    To configure the mobile interface of an access point name:

    1. Enter configuration mode in the CLI.
      user@host> configure
    2. Activate maintenance mode for the APN using the mobile interface to be modified.
      user@host# set unified-edge gateways ggsn-pgw gw-name apn-services apns apn-name service-mode maintenance user@host# commit
    3. Verify that the APN of this mobile interface is in maintenance mode.
      user@host# run show unified-edge ggsn-pgw apn service-mode

      Note: From the gateway hierarchy, the service mode for the gateway shows Maintenance – Active Phase if all the sessions using this APN are cleared. The service mode for the gateway shows Maintenance – In Phase if there are some sessions actively using this APN. The service mode for the APN shows Maintenance – Out Phase if maintenance mode is not configured (that is, it is in operational mode).

      Note: You cannot make and commit changes to a mobile interface unless the APN to which it is attached is in maintenance mode.

    4. Verify that there are no subscribers active on the APN.
      user@host# run show unified-edge ggsn-pgw subscribers | match apn-name
    5. (Optional) Terminate sessions that are using a mobile pool using the clear command.
      user@host# run clear unified-edge ggsn-pgw subscribers apn apn-name gateway gw-name
    6. When the subscriber count is zero and all sessions have ended, make and commit changes to the APN mobile interface in active maintenance mode.

      Note: These modifications must be made in active maintenance mode or they will fail.

    7. Modify the interface and commit the changes.
    8. Exit maintenance mode.
      user@host# delete unified-edge gateways ggsn-pgw gw-name apn-services apns apn-name service-mode user@host# commit
    9. Verify that changes were properly committed.
      user@host# run show configuration unified-edge gateways ggsn-pgw gw-name apn-services apns apn-name
    10. Return the gateway to operational state.
      user@host# run show unified-edge ggsn-pgw gateway service-mode
