Changing AMS Interface Parameters on a TDF Gateway

This procedure shows how to change the parameters for an aggregated multiservices (AMS) interface on a TDF gateway using maintenance mode at the [edit interfaces] hierarchy level. If an AMS interface is configured under a gateway’s session PICs or services PICs, and you change any load-balancing options such as membership of AMS interfaces (mams), then the AMS interface must be in maintenance mode.

Before you change AMS parameters using maintenance mode:

  • Make sure that this change has been coordinated with affected groups and users.

To configure maintenance mode and AMS parameter change:

  1. Verify the current status of maintenance mode for the AMS.

    The service-mode option displays the information details about maintenance mode as well as status.

  2. From configuration mode, show the current configuration for the AMS interface.
  3. On the gateway, place the interface in maintenance mode.
  4. Verify that the AMS interface is in active maintenance mode where configuration changes are accepted for this object and all of its subhierarchies, after you commit the configuration.

    All subscribers serviced by the AMS interface must go to zero. You can wait for these conditions to be met, or use the clear command for the interface (or gateway) to force these conditions.

  5. Delete or change AMS member interfaces and parameters.
  6. Exit maintenance mode and commit the changes.
