Creating Virtual Routers for the CMTS Device (SRC CLI)

 

You need to add a virtual router object called default to the CMTS device.

Use the following configuration statements to add a virtual router:

To add a virtual router:

  1. From configuration mode, access the configuration statements for virtual routers. In this sample procedure, pcmm_dtr is the name of the router and default is the name of the virtual router.

  2. Specify the addresses of SAEs that can manage this router. This step is required for the SAE to work with the router.

    To specify the active SAE and the redundant SAE, enter an exclamation point (!) after the hostname or IP address of the connected SAE. For example:

  3. (Optional) Specify an SNMP community name for SNMP read-only operations for this VR.

  4. (Optional) Specify an SNMP community name for SNMP write operations for this virtual router.

  5. (Optional) Specify service scopes assigned to this virtual router.

    See Configuring Service Scopes (SRC CLI).

  6. (Optional) Specify the list of IP address pools that a CMTS virtual router currently manages and stores.

    If you are using assigned IP subscribers along with the network information collector (NIC), you need to configure either a local or static address pool so that the NIC can resolve the IP-to-SAE mapping.

  7. (Optional) Specify the list of IP address pools that a CMTS VR manages but does not store.

    If you are using assigned IP subscribers along with the NIC, you need to configure either a local or static address pool so that the NIC can resolve the IP-to-SAE mapping.

  8. (Optional) Specify the plug-ins that track interfaces that the SAE manages on this virtual router.

  9. (Optional) Verify your configuration.
