Command Parameters

Table : System Admin Parameters (request)

Parameter

Description

loadConfig

Load saved configuration and restart the system without rebooting the servers.

  • allowOldVersion – This option is only intended for use to override checks for older releases which do not identify their version. In this case, the follow error results. Follow the instructions given:

    "There is no version identifier on the saved file. Use the allowOldVersion parameter only if you are sure the version of the saved configuration file is compatible with the running software version."
    • no
    • yes
  • filename – Enter the configuration file to load.

NOTE: In a redundant system, using loadConfig restarts both CEs

NOTE: If "reason Configuration file version not compatible with current software version. matrixFileNotAvailable" error is returned, the lswuMatrixSBX5000.bin/lswuMatrixSBX5000.txt file is missing from the/opt/sonus directory. You must must restore these files from the release package of the currently running software with the name pattern of "sbc-V0X.YY.ZZRQQQ.x86_64.tar.gz". Unzip and untar the current release's tar.gz file in that directory, return to the CLI and perform the command again.

reGenerateSshRsaKeysUse this control to regenerate all SSH keys.
reKeyConfdEncryptionKeys

Use this control to regenerate system configuration database encryption keys.

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.

removeSavedConfig

Remove the saved configuration from the system.

  • fileName – Specify filename of configuration to remove from the system.

restart

Restart system (all CEs).

saveConfig

Save the current configuration.

  • fileNameSuffix – Use this parameter to specify the filename suffix to use when saving the configuration.
setHaConfig

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

References:

NOTE: Bond monitoring is not applicable to SBC SWe.

softReset

Restart the applications on the system without rebooting the server(s).

switchover

Perform a switchover of the management applications and restart all applications on currently active server.

verifyDatabaseIntegrity

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.

To view the results of the above checks, use the 'show table system databaseIntegrity' command. See Show Table System for details.

zeroizePersistenKeys

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

ethernetPort

Command Syntax

% request system ethernetPort packetAdmin <host name> <pkt0 | pkt1> switchover

Command Parameter

Table : Ethernet Port 'request' Parameter

 

Parameter

Description

switchover

Use this parameter to initiate a port switchover within a redundancy pair.

The switchover command only applies to pkt0 and pkt1 on SBC 7000 active CE.

ipPolicing

Command Syntax

> request system ipPolicing resetOffendersList <OffendersList name> 
  aclOffendersList 
  aggregateOffendersList 
  arpOffendersList 
  badEtherIpHdrOffendersList 
  discardRuleOffendersList 
  ipSecDecryptOffendersList

Offenders List Details

IP Policing Offenders Lists

ACL Offenders List – The Access Control List policer offenders list.

Aggregate Offenders List – The aggregate policer offenders list.

ARP Offenders List – The ARP policer offenders list.

Bad Ethernet IP Header Offenders List – The bad Ethernet/IP Header policer offenders list. Ethernet/IP headers are considered bad under the following conditions:

  • Only broadcast ARP packets are allowed; all other broadcast packets are considered bad.

  • Anything other than the following unicast/multicast ICMPV6 packets are considered bad.

    • Type 2 (Packet too big)
    • Type 3 (ICMP Time exceeded) Code 0 (hop limit exceeded).
    • Type 128 (ICMPV6 Echo request)
    • Type 129 (ICMPV6 Echo reply)
    • Type 135 Neighbor Solicitation
    • Type 136 Neighbor Advertisement
  • Anything other than the following unicast ICMPV4 packets are considered bad:

    • Type 0 Echo Reply

    • Type 3 Code 4 (Destination unreachable, fragmentation required)

    • Type 8 Echo Request

    • Type 11 Code 0 (Time Exceeded, TTL expired)

  • Only ICMPV6 neighbor discovery packets are allowed under multicast MAC address. Anything else is considered bad.

  • If DestMAC is zero, it is considered a bad packet.

  • Anything other than ethertype (IPV4, IPV6, VLAN) is considered bad.

  • IP Checksum error is considered bad.

  • IP version other than 4 or 6 is considered bad.

  • Bad IP Header length

  • Packet that is not long enough to contain IP header.

  • TTL == 0 is considered bad.

  • IPV4 with options set is considered bad.

  • IPV6 with initial next header field of 0, 60, or 43 is considered bad.

Discard Rule Offenders List – The table of statistics for the discard rule offenders list. For example: ACLi discard rule packets.

IPsec Decrypt Offenders List – The table of statistics for the IPsec Decrypt policer offenders list. For example:

  • Bad IPsec packet

  • Authentication error

  • Invalid SSID

  • IPsec protocol == AH

Media Offenders List – The table of statistics for the media policer offenders list. For example: Media packets exceeding the policing value.

Rogue Media Offenders List – The table of statistics for the rogue media policer offenders list. For example:

  • UPD packets received in the media port range, but the destination UDP port is not allocated for media call
  • Media packets where source port, source address or destination address do not match the allocated media resource

uFlow Offenders List – The table of statistics for the Micro Flow policer offenders list. For example: Microflow packet exceeding the policing rate.

rogueMediaOffenders List vs. mediaOffendersList

Entries in the Media Offenders List are for allocated media packets that violate the policing rules. The associated call is sending too many media packets. This could indicate a possible “Theft of Service” scenario. Entries in the Rogue Media Offenders List are media packets that the SBC is receiving but no resource is allocated for the packet. This may be a Denial of Service attack or indication that a call was terminated but the other end is still sending media packets.

logout

Operational mode only.

Command Parameters

Table : request system security Parameters

 

Parameter

Description

generateSipHeaderEncryptionKeys

Use this command to generate header encryption keys. A "Success" or "Failure" indication is returned. The SBC then adds the key-Id to each encrypted header based on which key is selected as the correct key for decryption.

The SBC stores up to two sets of keys at any given time. There is no limit to the number of times this command may be executed. Additionally, there is no specific time delay required before reissuing the command.

Caution

Generating new keys too frequently may lead to a situation where the SBC receives a request with an expired key-id (i.e. the current header encryption key is over-written due to the new key generation) causing unsuccessful decryption of headers. This may lead to call failures any calls caught in the transition to the new key-id.

pki

PKI certification configuration details.

  • certificate <certificateName>The name for a collection of certificates configured on SBC.
    • generateCSR – Use this parameter to generate CSR (Certificate Signing Request).
      • csrSub CSR subject name (max 255 chars). Place the parameter value within quotation marks if a string contains a space.

      • keySize  Size of the key to generate private key via openssl command.

        • keySize1K

        • keySize2K

      • subjectAlternativeDnsName Alternative DNS subject name(s). Multiple alternative names can be specified using "," (comma) separator. (0-512 chars). Example:  "nj.sonusnet.com, in.sonusnet.com, uk.sonusnet.com, ca.sonusnet.com, tx.sonusnet.com"

    • importCert certContent Import PEM format certificate (max 4096 characters).
      Note: When issuing this command, the SBC enables multi-line mode automatically. To exit multi-line mode you must press Ctrl+D manually.
    • retrieveCertContent – Retrieve content of an existing PKI certificate (local, local-internal and remote).
  • uploadCertificate – Upload a pk12 certificate.
