Global N+1 HCCP for CMTS Redundancy Configuration Guide

TAC Carrier Services 11/25/2007


Objective:


Provide configuration example and assistance for Global 4+1 Redundancy on CMTS


Components:


IOS 12.3(13a)BC or Better UBR10k2 with ESR-PRE2 Up to 7x UBR-MC5X20x-D Line card in slot other than slot 5/1 as "Working" UBR-MC5X20x-D Line card in slot 5/1 as "Protect"  Up to 2x RF-Switch


Overview:


For complete reference please consult the Cisco N+1 Feature Guide [1]. The scope of this guide is intended to give the reader a general overview of N+1 configuration setup in our SJC TAC labs.


N+1 Global redundancy refers to the high availability feature of the CMTS which allows for one standby cable line card to protect up to seven production cable line cards. The cable line cards are connected to one (for 4+1) or two (for 7+1) RF-Switches. The RF-Switch is a hardware switch which switches a problematic cable line card’s connectors over to the protect card. The failover process is extremely quick and is theoretically low impact.


Procedure:


CMTS Slot 7/0 -> RF Switch Slot 3
CMTS Slot 5/1 -> RF Switch Protect *P2 Column*
RF Switch Slot 3 to Plant


Verification & Troubleshooting:


CMTS:


show hccp {brief|...}
test hccp rfswitch {poll|relay}
redundancy linecard-group switchover from 7/0     <- "Make this working switch to protect..."
redundancy linecard-group revertback 7/0     <- "Take off protect back onto this working..."
show redundancy linecard all              
telnet x.x.x. /noecho                    <- Telneting into rfswitch with noecho option

RFSwitch:

show config
set snmp community COMMUNITY
set snmp host IP_ADDR
set snmp trap
test module
