ASR9000: Method to set ASR903 as nV Satellite

 

Introduction:

From IOS-XR 4.3.0, ASR903 can be used as nV Satellite. This document describes the method to set ASR903 as nV Satellite.

Core Issue:

 

There is a need to provide detailed information on how to set ASR903 as nV Satellite.

Resolution:

 

The setting procedure is described below.

Note that the following procedure is at least valid as of the time of the creation of this document and is subject to change in the future.

 

 

Example of the topology used in this description

Gi0/1/0-7+--------+Te0/0/0          +---------+

---------| ASR903 |-----------------| ASR9001 |

         +--------+   TenGigE0/0/2/0+---------+

 

Connect the ASR903's TenGigabitEthernet 0/0/0 interface with the ASR9001's TenGigabitEthernet 0/0/2/0 interface and use this link as ICL (Inter Chassis Link).

 

Settings on the ASR9000 side

 

Configure the following settings on ASR9000

 

ASR9000-side config

interface Loopback1

  ipv4 address 10.10.10.100 255.255.255.0 (ASR9000-side IP address used for internal communications with Satellite)

 

!

interface TenGigE0/0/2/0

  ipv4 point-to-point

  ipv4 unnumbered Loopback1

  nv

   satellite-fabric-link satellite 200 (Satellite number)

   remote-ports GigabitEthernet 0/1/0-7 (ASR903 interface used as a remote port)

  !

!

nv

  satellite 200 (Satellite number)

   type asr903 (Satellite type)

   serial-number XXXXXXXXXXX (ASR903 chassis serial number)

   description ASR903 Satellite

   ipv4 address 10.10.10.200 (Satellite-side IP address used for internal communications with Satellite)

!

Settings on the ASR903 side

 

On the ASR903 side, it is not necessary to set the configuration, but ASR903 needs to be booted with the image dedicated to ASR903 nV, which is contained in nV PIE installed on the ASR9000 side.Further, use the console connection for this setting.

 

(1) Preparing an image for Satellite setting

To download an image from the ASR9000 side, it is necessary to establish the nV ICL. So download the ASR903 Satellite image from CCO and save it in bootflash:.

 

File name example: "asr903rsp1_sat-universalk9_npe.03.08.00.S.153-1.S.bin"

 

Image for setting

ASR903#dir

Directory of bootflash:/

(snip)

   25  -rw-   225655140  Jan 23 2013 09:36:51 +00:00  asr903rsp1_sat-universalk9_npe.03.08.00.S.153-1.S.bin

 

ASR903#

 

 

(2) Booting with the image for Satellite setting

 

Change the Config-register value to 0x2042 to modify the boot image.

 

conf t

config-register 0x2042

no boot system

boot system bootflash:asr903rsp1_sat-universalk9_npe.03.08.00.S.153-1.S.bin

 

Then reload and enable it.

 

ASR903# reload

 

(3) Changing the host name and confirming nV ICL establishment

 

When the ICL link to connect ASR903 with ASR9000 becomes UP, the nV ICL is configured and the host name is changed on the ASR903 side as indicated below.

 

LC:Satellite#

 

From the ASR9000 side, it may be confirmed that nV is properly configured.

 

 

Check Satellite status

RP/0/RSP0/CPU0:ASR9001#show nv satellite status brief satellite 200

Sat-ID  Type      IP Address    MAC address     State

------  --------  ------------  --------------  --------------------------------

200     asr903    10.10.10.200  xxxx.xxxx.xxxx  Connected (Stable)

RP/0/RSP0/CPU0:ASR9001#

 

 

 

(4) Downloading the image dedicated to nV from ASR9000

 

Through the nV link, the image can be downloaded from the ASR9000 side using tftp.

At this point, the IP address set in the ASR9000-side Loopback1 becomes the server address (10.10.10.100 in this example).

In addition, the file name should be rp_super_universalk9_npe.rudy.bin.

 

 

From the ASR903 side, copy the image dedicated to nV using tftp.

LC:Satellite#copy tftp://10.10.10.100/rp_super_universalk9_npe.rudy.bin bootflash:

Destination filename [rp_super_universalk9_npe.rudy.bin]?

Loading rp_super_universalk9_npe.rudy.bin .from 10.10.10.100 (via BDI2000): !!!!!!!!!!!!!!

LC:Satellite#

 

 

(5) Booting with the image dedicated to nV

 

For Satellite images including the image for Satellite setting, setting by "configure terminal," etc. is not allowed. Therefore, configure the boot image file from Rommon.

 

Reboot ASR903, which has been used as Satellite, and enter to Rommon using the Break signal.

 

Reboot Satellite

LC:Satellite#reload

 

or

 

RP/0/RSP0/CPU0:ASR9001#hw-module satellite 200 reload

 

 

Configure from Rommon in the ASR903 console

rommon 1 > BOOT=bootflash:rp_super_universalk9_npe.rudy.bin

rommon 2 > sync

rommon 3 > reset

 

 

(6) Checking Satellite status

 

After rebooting Satellite, confirm that nV is properly configured as indicated below.

 

Check Satellite status

RP/0/RSP0/CPU0:ASR9001#show nv satellite status brief satellite 200

Sat-ID  Type      IP Address    MAC address     State

------  --------  ------------  --------------  --------------------------------

200     asr903    10.10.10.200  xxxx.xxxx.xxxx  Connected (Stable)

RP/0/RSP0/CPU0:ASR9001#
