    Setting Up SAE Communities (SRC CLI)

    Tasks to configure SAE communities are:

    Note: If there is a firewall in the network, configure the firewall to allow SAE messages through.

    1. Configuring the SAE Community Manager
    2. Specifying the Community Manager in the SAE Device Driver

    Configuring the SAE Community Manager

    Use the following configuration statements to configure the SAE community manager that manages third-party network device communities:

    shared sae configuration external-interface-features name CommunityManager {keepalive-interval keepalive-interval ; threads threads ; acquire-timeout acquire-timeout ; blackout-time blackout-time ; }

    To configure the community manager:

    1. From configuration mode, access the configuration statements for the community manager. In this sample procedure, sae_mgr is the name of the community manager.
      user@host# edit shared sae configuration external-interface-features sae_mgr CommunityManager
    2. Specify the interval between keepalive messages sent from the active SAE to the passive members of the community.
      [edit shared sae configuration external-interface-features sae_mgr CommunityManager] user@host# set keepalive-interval keepalive-interval
    3. Specify the number of threads that are allocated to manage the community. You generally do not need to change this value.
      [edit shared sae configuration external-interface-features sae_mgr CommunityManager] user@host# set threads threads
    4. Specify the amount of time an SAE waits for a remote member of the community when it is acquiring a distributed lock. You generally do not need to change this value.
      [edit shared sae configuration external-interface-features sae_mgr CommunityManager] user@host# set acquire-timeout acquire-timeout
    5. Specify the amount of time that an active SAE must wait after it shuts down before it can try to become the active SAE of the community again.
      [edit shared sae configuration external-interface-features sae_mgr CommunityManager] user@host# set blackout-time blackout-time
    6. (Optional) Verify the configuration of the SAE community manager.
      [edit shared sae configuration external-interface-features sae_mgr CommunityManager] 
      user@host# show 
      CommunityManager {
        keepalive-interval 30;
        threads 5;
        acquire-timeout 15;
        blackout-time 30;
      }

    Specifying the Community Manager in the SAE Device Driver

    Use the following configuration statements to specify the community manager in the SAE device driver.

    shared sae configuration driver third-party {sae-community-manager sae-community-manager ;}

    To specify the community manager:

    1. From configuration mode, access the configuration statements for the third-party device driver.
      user@host# edit shared sae configuration driver third-party
    2. Specify the name of the community manager.
      [edit shared sae configuration driver third-party] user@host# set sae-community-manager sae-community-manager
    3. (Optional) Verify the configuration of the third-party device driver.
      [edit shared sae configuration driver third-party] 
      user@host# show 
      sae-community-manager sae_mgr;
