Upgrading from a Restricted Cluster to a Regular Cluster

This section describes how to upgrade from a restricted cluster to a regular cluster. You upgrade from a restricted cluster to a regular cluster to remove the restrictions on the maximum number of concurrent sessions and you are allowed to add an expansion kit to your cluster. To upgrade to a regular cluster, perform the following tasks:

Note: This procedure is applicable only if you provided a Restricted Cluster license during SSR installation.

This procedure must be executed in all SBR nodes (that is, S and SM nodes) involved in the SSR cluster.

  1. As root, navigate to the directory where you installed the Steel-Belted Radius Carrier package. For information about directory in which Steel-Belted Radius Carrier package is installed, see Unpacking Session State Register Software.

    Then, navigate to the radius/install subdirectory and run:

    cd /opt/JNPRsbr/radius/install/

  2. Run the configure script:

    ./configure

  3. At the configuration tasks prompt, enter 6 to upgrade from a restricted cluster to a regular cluster.
    Configuring SBR Software
    ---------------------------------------------------------------------------
    SBR 8.40.24028 cluster red{0s,2sm,0m,2d}
    on SunOS 5.10 Generic_141444-09 node sbrha-2.englab.juniper.net(sm)
    is CONFIGURED and processes are UP, may be stopped if reconfigured
    ---------------------------------------------------------------------------
    1.  Unconfigure Cluster Node
            Not used when merely updating existing cluster definitions.
    2.  Generate Cluster Definition
            Creates new or updates existing cluster definitions.
            Modifies the shared directory but does not modify this node.
    3.  Configure Cluster Node
            To be preceded by ’Generate Cluster Definition’ on any node.
            Must be invoked on each and every node of the cluster.
    4.  Reconfigure RADIUS Server
            Only on SBR nodes, updates the existing SBR configuration.
    5.  Create Temporary Cluster
            Used to approximate a cluster using only this one machine.
            Intended for migration and demonstration purposes only.
    6.  Upgrade From Restricted Cluster License
            Used to upgrade from restricted cluster to regular cluster.
            Removes database restriction on the number of concurrent
            sessions and enables the addition of an expansion kit license
    Enter number of desired configuration task, or q to quit : 6
    
  4. Enter the license number of the Regular Cluster license.
    Enter the Upgrade regular cluster license:
    Restricted Cluster has been upgraded to regular cluster.
    Now as per your concurrent session license, maximum concurrent sessions will bring into effect.
    For adding concurrent session license, use the SBR Admin Web GUI.
  5. Execute the steps 1 to 4 in all SBR nodes (that is, S and SM nodes) involved in the SSR cluster.

After you have successfully upgraded from a restricted cluster to a regular cluster, the restriction on the maximum number of concurrent sessions is removed and you are allowed to add any number of concurrent session licenses through the Web GUI.
