    Example: Configuration for a Database Community

    A community of Juniper Networks databases lets you set up redundancy for client applications that connect to these databases.

    This sample configuration describes the tasks for configuring Juniper Networks databases on C Series Controllers:

    Requirements

    Software

    Hardware

    Minimum SRC Release 1.0.0

    C2000 or C4000

    Overview and Sample Topology

    You configure a number of Juniper Networks databases as members of a community to protect data by replicating data from one database to another, and by specifying relationships between databases to support failover if a database that has the primary role for a set of applications becomes inoperable. This example uses C1 and C2 as databases that have a primary role, and C3 as a database that has a secondary role.

    Figure 1 shows the sample configuration.

    The following configuration shows the configuration statements for databases shown in Figure 1.

    Configuration

    Configuring C1

    CLI Quick Configuration

    To quickly configure a Juniper Networks database, copy the following commands into a text editor, and modify them; then load the configuration from the file.

    [edit] set system ldap server community role primary set system ldap server community primary-neighbors C2 set system ldap server community primary-connection-type clear set system ldap server community secondary-neighbors C3 set system ldap server community secondary-connection-type clear

    Step-by-Step Procedure

    To configure the C1 system:

    1. From configuration mode, access the configuration statement that configures the Juniper Networks database in community mode.
      [edit] user@C1# edit system ldap server community
    2. Specify the database role as primary.
      [edit system ldap server community] user@C1# set role primary
    3. Specify primary neighbors.
      [edit system ldap server community] user@C1# set primary-neighbors C2
    4. Specify the connection type of the primary neighbors as clear.
      [edit system ldap server community] user@C1# set primary-connection-type clear
    5. Specify secondary neighbors.
      [edit system ldap server community] user@C1# set secondary-neighbors C3
    6. Specify the connection type of the secondary neighbors as clear.
      [edit system ldap server community] user@C1# set secondary-connection-type clear

    Configuring C2

    CLI Quick Configuration

    To customize the configuration example for your needs, copy the following commands into a text editor, and modify them; then load the configuration from the file.

    [edit] set system ldap server community role primary set system ldap server community primary-neighbors C1 set system ldap server community primary-connection-type clear set system ldap server community secondary-neighbors C3 set system ldap server community secondary-connection-type clear

    Step-by-Step Procedure

    To configure the C2 system:

    1. From configuration mode, access the configuration statement that configures the Juniper Networks database in community mode.
      [edit] user@C2# edit system ldap server community
    2. Specify the database role as primary.
      [edit system ldap server community] user@C2# set role primary
    3. Specify primary neighbors.
      [edit system ldap server community] user@C2# set primary-neighbors C1
    4. Specify the connection type of the primary neighbors as clear.
      [edit system ldap server community] user@C1# set primary-connection-type clear
    5. Specify secondary neighbors.
      [edit system ldap server community] user@C2# set secondary-neighbors C3
    6. Specify the connection type of the secondary neighbors as clear.
      [edit system ldap server community] user@C1# set secondary-connection-type clear

    Configuring C3

    CLI Quick Configuration

    To customize the configuration example for your needs, copy the following commands into a text editor, and modify them; then load the configuration from the file.

    [edit] set system ldap server community role secondary set system ldap server community primary-neighbors C1 C2 set system ldap server community primary-connection-type clear

    Step-by-Step Procedure

    To configure the C3 system:

    1. From configuration mode, access the configuration statement that configures the Juniper Networks database in community mode.
      [edit] user@C3# edit system ldap server community
    2. Specify the database role as primary.
      [edit system ldap server community] user@C3# set role secondary
    3. Specify primary neighbors.
      [edit system ldap server community] user@C3# set primary-neighbors C1 C2
    4. Specify the connection type of the primary neighbors as clear.
      [edit system ldap server community] user@C1# set primary-connection-type clear
