EEM Script Question

I was told EEM could be a possible solution to an issue I'm having... I have a 2811 router in an RV that has a Cellular and a Satellite connection. The cell is primary, the satellite is secondary. I am having an issue with NAT'ing when the Cell card fails. Basically users can't get out to the internet over the satellite until I take my NAT statement off manualy for the cell card. Could EEM scripting help resolve this issue? I have pasted some commands from my router I think are pertinent...

FA 0/1

ip address 1.1.1.214

ip route 0.0.0.0 0.0.0.0 Cellular0/0/0 99 track 1

ip route 0.0.0.0 0.0.0.0 1.1.1.212 100

track 1 interface Cellular0/0/0 line-protocol

ip nat inside source list 110 interface Cellular0/0/0 overload

ip nat inside source list 112 interface FastEthernet0/0 overload

access-list 110 permit ip 10.39.4.0 0.0.0.255 any

access-list 112 permit ip 10.39.4.0 0.0.0.255 any

Re: EEM Script Question

This should work then:

event manager applet cell-down

event track 1 state down

action 1.0 cli command "enable"

action 2.0 cli command "config t"

action 3.0 cli command "no ip nat inside source list 110 interface Cellular0/0/0 overload"

action 4.0 cli command "end"

I'm guessing that the one "no ip nat" command is all that is required.

event manager applet cell-up

event track 1 state up

action 1.0 cli command "enable"

action 2.0 cli command "config t"

action 3.0 cli command "ip nat inside source list 110 interface Cellular0/0/0 overload"

action 4.0 cli command "end"

Re: EEM Script Question

Joe,

Wouldn't you want to add a command "wr mem" into your EEM scripts?

Re: EEM Script Question

No. That could be very bad I would think. If the interface does not transition on reload, I would also add an applet to trigger off of the SYS-5-RESTART syslog to put the NAT statement back in. For example:

event manager applet rest-on-reboot

event syslog pattern "SYS-5-RESTART"

action 1.0 cli command "enable"

action 2.0 cli command "config t"

action 3.0 cli command "ip nat inside source list 110 interface Cellular0/0/0 overload"

action 4.0 cli command "end"

Joe, thank you. I believe this is what we're looking for! I'm going to test it out today. I'll let you know if it works.

These commands worked. Thank you. I really like EEM scripting. It could be very useful in resolving several issues we're having now.
