 The Admin object allows you to configure the system administration related parameters in the SBC Core. You can configure audit log state, system location, IP version used, and other parameters.

To View Admin

On SBC main screen, go to All > System > Admin.

The Admin window is displayed.

Figure : All - System - Admin


To Edit Admin

To edit any of the Admin in the list, click the radio button next to the specific Admin name.

Figure : All - System - Admin Highlighted


The Edit Selected Admin window is displayed below.

Figure : All - System - Admin Edit Window



The following fields are displayed:

Table : All - System - Admin parameters





Specifies the name of the SBC system.


Specifies the physical location of the SBC system.


Specifies the contact information of the SBC system.

Local Authentication Enabled

Specifies the confd CLI user information stored locally can be used for authentication.

External Authentication Enabled

Specifies the confd CLI user information stored on remote Radius Server used for authentication.

Util Monitor Stats Interval

Specifies the time interval for system resource monitoring statistics. The value ranges from 5 to 60 minutes and the default value is 15 minutes.


If using the EMS in your network, configure EMS PM data collection intervals for the SBC to be both:

  • Equal to or greater than SBC intervals size, and
  • Not less than the SBC interval size multiplied by the SBC number of intervals.

See Insight User Guide for configuration details.

Util Monitors Stats Num of Past Interval

Specifies the number of past intervals saved by the system resource monitoring statistics.

Audit Log State

Specifies the state of the management audit log. The options are:

  • enabled
  • disabled

Dsp Mismatch Action

Specifies the action to take for one of the following DSP Mismatch conditions:

  1. Mismatch in DSP card installation across any/all slot locations: Cards must match by slot location. For any mismatched slot, DSP capacity is not used when "preserveRedundancy" is configured (and card dried up if calls were already in place when the mismatch occurred), or card is left unprotected when "preserveCapacity" is configured.
  2. Mismatch in DSP card type within as lot location: Card installations must match by type – DSP25 (higher capacity) or DSP20 (lower capacity). Same rules as above apply.

The options are:

  • preserveRedundancy (default): The Active automatically triggers a graceful dry-up in an attempt to align DSP hardware capabilities. Once dry-up completes, the Active SBC uses the protected, matching DSP capacity to preserve redundancy.

Note: During the dry-up period, active calls using the higher Capacity DSPs are not protected in the event that a switchover occurs before the dry up completes.

  • preserveCapacity: The Active SBC continues to use the extra DSP capacity, as needed, assuming appropriate session licenses are in place; partial redundancy is in effect.

Note: If a switchover occurs, calls using the higher capacity DSPs on Active are not protected during switchover (i.e. partial redundancy).

Cli Set Warning Support

Specifies whether to enable warning prompts configured for the Set commands or not. The options are:

  • enabled (default)
  • disabled

Make the required changes and click Save at the right hand bottom of the panel to save the changes made.

Admin Commands

Specifies all the admin commands used and its purpose.

Figure : All - System - Admin Commands


The following options are displayed:

Table : Admin Commands parameters




Re Generate Ssh Rsa KeysSpecifies that it causes regeneration of all SSH keys.

Re Key Confd Encryption Key

Specifies that it causes encryption keys used by the system configuration database to be regenerated.

Note: Sonus recommends backing up current encrypted parameters in plaintext, if possible.  Sonus further recommends performing a full configuration backup immediately after this activity has successfully completed.

Remove Saved Config

Remove the saved configuration from the system.

  • fileName – Specify filename of configuration to remove from the system.
RestartThis command restarts a server/CE.
Set Ha Config

Use this action command to configure SBC for Geographical Redundancy High Availability (GRHA) mode when active and standby servers are located in two different data centers to protect SBCs against data center and network failures. To configure/change just one setting, use currentValue option for the other setting.

  • bondMonitoring – Select the bond monitoring type for GRHA mode.
    • currentValue 
    • direct-connect
    • network-connect
  • leaderElection Select the leader election algorithm type to use for GRHA mode.
    • currentValue 
    • enhanced
    • standard

Refer to:

Soft ResetRestart the applications on the system without rebooting the server(s).
SwitchoverPerform a switchover of the management applications and restart all applications on currently active server.
Verify Database Integrity

Use this command to verify that the SBC policy and configuration databases on the active server are in sync and that the policy databases on the active and standby servers are in sync. Because these commands take a few seconds to execute, it is not advisable to constantly run these commands on systems.

  • activeAndStandbyPolicy – Check if policy databases on the active and standby servers are in sync.
  • activeConfigAndActivePolicy – Check if the policy and configuration databases on the active server are in sync.
  • all – Perform both of the above checks.

Zeroize Persistent Keys

Use this control to securely erase all persistent CSPs from the system. The  SBC server reboots after confirmation.
