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;
