    Mapping a Management IP Address for Path Computation Clients

    You can access the Management IP Mapping window to map a management IP address for a Path Computation Client (PCC) directly from the CSD-Topology user interface. A PCC supports the configurations related to the Path Computation Element (PCE) and communicates with the CSD-Topology, which by default is configured to accept a PCEP connection from any source address.

    Before you begin, you must perform the configuration steps described in Configuring PCEP on a PE Router (from CLI) to configure the PE router as a PCC and establish a connection between the PCC and the CSD-Topology.

    To map a management IP address for a Path Computation Client (PCC) to the CSD-Topology:

    1. Login in to the CSD-Topology Web UI.
    2. On the initial window, from the More Options drop down menu (the icon looks like a set of horizontal bars), select Administration.
    3. From menu at the far left of the screen, select Device Profile.
    4. To import the IP addresses of all routers configured as PCCs that are connected to the CSD-Topology, select Import Device Profiles.

      The router ID of each PCC for which connectivity has been established with the CSD-Topology is displayed from the Management IP Mapping main window as shown in Figure 1.

    5. In the Management IP field for the PCC on which you want to map a management IP address, enter a management IP address for the PCC. You must specify either a Management IP address or a PCEP IP address. You could also have both.
    6. Repeat this process for each PCC for which you want to map a Management IP address.
    7. Click Push Update to apply the mapping changes to the CSD-Topology.

    The Management IP Mapping window includes the following options:

    • Import IP from Server—Imports the router-id of each PCC
    • Reload—Loads the current Management IP Mapping settings
    • Push Update—Applies the settings in the table to the CSD-Topology.
    • Add a Router—Allows a user to manually add an individual router, if it cannot be imported from the server.
    • Remove Router—Removes the router entry from the Management IP Mapping table, but requires that you use the Push Update option to apply the changes to the table.
    • Ping Routers—Pings the routers in the table. The Connectivity icon color indicates whether or not the router is reachable.
    • Clear Table—Removes all router entries from the table, but you must select Push Update to apply the changes to the table.
