    Changing a Charging Profile

    This procedure describes how to use maintenance mode to change a charging profile. You must first halt new sessions from being started and verify that there are no active sessions remaining.

    You can make the following types of changes to the charging profile in maintenance mode:

    • CDR profile
    • Transport profile
    • Trigger profile

    To change the charging profile:

    1. Enter configuration mode in the CLI.
      user@host> configure
    2. Activate maintenance mode for a charging profile.
      user@host# set unified-edge gateways ggsn-pgw gw-name charging charging-profiles profile-name service-mode maintenance user@host# commit
    3. Verify that the charging gateway is in maintenance mode.
      user@host#show unified-edge ggsn-pgw subscribers charging charging-profile profile-name gateway gw-name

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

      Verify that there are no subscribers active on this charging profile.

      user@host#show unified-edge ggsn-pgw subscribers charging charging-profile profile-name
    4. (Optional) Terminate subscribers using a charging profile using the clear command.
      user@host# run clear unified-edge ggsn-pgw subscribers charging charging-profile profile-name gateway gw-name
    5. When the subscriber count is zero and all sessions have ended, you can make and commit changes to the charging profile in active maintenance mode.

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

    6. Make the changes and verify that they were properly committed.
      user@host# show unified-edge ggsn-pgw subscribers charging charging-profile profile-name gateway gw-name
    7. Exit maintenance mode and commit to return to normal operations.
      user@host# delete unified-edge gateways ggsn-pgw gw-name charging charging-profile profile-name service-mode user@host# commit
    8. Return the gateway to operational state.
      user@host# run show unified-edge ggsn-pgw gateway service-mode
