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.

  4. Enter the license number of the Regular Cluster license.

  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.
