    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:

    shared network device name virtual-router name {sae-connection [ sae-connection ...];
    snmp-read-community snmp-read-community ;
    snmp-write-community snmp-write-community ;
    scope [ scope ...];
    local-address-pools local-address-pools ;
    static-address-pools static-address-pools ;
    tracking-plug-in [ tracking-plug-in ...];
    }

    To add a virtual router:

    1. From configuration mode, access the configuration statements for virtual routers. You must specify the name of a device with lowercase characters. In this sample procedure, pcmm_dtr is the name of the router and default is the name of the virtual router.
      user@host# edit shared network device pcmm_dtr virtual-router default
    2. Specify the addresses of SAEs that can manage this router. This step is required for the SAE to work with the router.
      [edit shared network device pcmm_dtr virtual-router default] user@host# set sae-connection [ sae-connection ...]

      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:

      [edit shared network device pcmm_dtr virtual-router default]user@host# set sae-connection [sae1! sae2!]
    3. (Optional) Specify an SNMP community name for SNMP read-only operations for this VR.
      [edit shared network device pcmm_dtr virtual-router default] user@host# set snmp-read-community snmp-read-community
    4. (Optional) Specify an SNMP community name for SNMP write operations for this virtual router.
      [edit shared network device pcmm_dtr virtual-router default] user@host# set snmp-write-community snmp-write-community
    5. (Optional) Specify service scopes assigned to this virtual router.

      See Configuring Service Scopes (SRC CLI).

      [edit shared network device pcmm_dtr virtual-router default] user@host# set scope [ scope ...]
    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.

      [edit shared network device pcmm_dtr virtual-router default] user@host# set local-address-pools local-address-pools
    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.

      [edit shared network device pcmm_dtr virtual-router default] user@host# set static-address-pools static-address-pools
    8. (Optional) Specify the plug-ins that track interfaces that the SAE manages on this virtual router.
      [edit shared network device pcmm_dtr virtual-router default] user@host# tracking-plug-in [ tracking-plug-in ...]
    9. (Optional) Verify your configuration.
      [edit shared network device pcmm_dtr virtual-router default] 
      user@host# show 
      sae-connection [ 10.14.39.2 10.10.5.30 ];
      snmp-read-community ********;
      snmp-write-community ********;
      scope POP-Westford;
      local-address-pools "10.25.8.0 10.25.20.255";
      tracking-plug-in rksPlugin;
