Changing IP Addresses in an SSR Cluster Without Redefining the Cluster

The Steel-Belted Radius Carrier software generates the required configuration files that contain the cluster definition details and cluster node details. These details are configured in each SM node and D node, which form part of the SSR cluster.

When you change an IP address of an SM or D node in the cluster, you should also change the IP address of the node available under the cluster node details in the configuration files. You can change the IP address of the node by redefining the cluster or by manually changing the IP address in the generated configuration files in all other SM and D nodes. To manually change the IP address:

  • In SM nodes, replace the old IP address with the new IP address in the following files:
    • dbclusterndb.gen in /opt/JNPRsbr/radius
    • config.ini in /opt/JNPRhadm
    • my.cnf in /opt/JNPRhadm
  • In D nodes, replace the old IP address with the new IP address in the following files:
    • config.ini in /opt/JNPRhadm
    • my.cnf in /opt/JNPRhadm

Caution: Manually changing the generated configuration files in SM or D nodes might result in loss of data. It is recommended that you completely redefine the SSR cluster by configuring cluster definition and cluster node details in each SM node and D node so that the software generates updated configuration files. For more information about configuring SSR nodes, see the SBR Carrier Installation Guide.
