Creating a Configuration File on the Standalone Router for Integration into the Routing Matrix


Using the current standalone T1600 or T4000 router configuration, create a configuration file on the line-card chassis (LCC) that will be merged into the TX Matrix Plus router configuration:

  1. Save the existing standalone router configuration. For example:
    user@host# save T1600-config.conf
  2. Special configuration groups re0 and re1 apply to the Routing Engines in slots 0 and 1 of the TX Matrix Plus router. If the LCC configuration contains these groups, you must change them to lcclcc-number-re0 and lcclcc-number-re1, where lcc-number equals the chassis ID of the router.

    See Using Configuration Groups and Inheritance in a Routing Matrix with a TX Matrix Plus Router.

  3. If the configuration includes special Routing Engine configuration groups, include the apply-groups statement at the [edit] hierarchy level. For example:
  4. Change the configuration hierarchy of all statements at the [edit chassis fpc slot-number] hierarchy level to the [edit chassis lcc lcc-number fpc slot-number] hierarchy level.
  5. If the chassis ID of the LCC is 0, you do not need to change interface names or the configuration hierarchy of any other statements. Otherwise, you must modify the FPC numbers throughout the configuration based on the chassis ID you select. For more information, see Line-Card Chassis Interface Names and Line-Card Chassis ID.
  6. Save the modified configuration using a different filename from the one you selected for the saved configuration. For example:
    user@host# save txp-config.conf

    Do not commit the configuration.

This is an example of a modified configuration at the [group lcc0-re0] hierarchy level:
