This section describes the instantiation procedure of M-SBC using N:1 nested heat template.

Note

  • Download the required heat template and the environment file from Salesforce Customer Portal. Edit the template with the required SBC instance information using the instructions included in the heat template.
  • EMS identifies the nodes based on the VNFC-ID. While instantiating SBC/PSX cloud nodes, ensure that you use a unique VNFC-ID only. If you reuse an existing VNFC-ID, EMS will treat this as a re-registration request and overwrite the existing data on the cloud node.

Warning

Once a N:1 Redundancy Group (RG) is created, you must not delete any one of the instances from RG using OpenStack dashboard GUI. In this case, you must remove the RG and create a new one.

 

To instantiate M-SBC HA using N:1 nested heat template:

  1. Log on to the OpenStack.

  2. On the navigation pane, click Project > Orchestration > Stacks. The Stacks page displays: 

    Figure : Stacks Page

  3. Click Launch Stack to view the Select Template screen.

  4. From the Select Template dialog, do the following:
    1. From the Template Source drop-down list, select File.
    2. Under Template File, click Browse.

    3. Select the .yaml file saved on the computer.

    4. Click Next.

      Figure : Select Template

      The Launch Stack dialog box displays.

    5. Enter the required values for the fields.

      Figure : Launch Stack


      The following table describes the Launch Stack fields:

      Table : Launch Stack Fields

      FieldDescriptionExample or Recommendation
      Stack Name *A unique name of the stack to create.SBC-Media
      Creation Timeout (minutes) *Time in minutes for stack creation time-out. Default value is 60 minutes.60
      Rollback on FailureThis enables the rollback on create/update failure. 
      Password for user*This is required for operations to be performed throughout the life cycle of the stack.admin
      Image Name *The image to be used to launch the Signaling SBC instance.SBCSWe6.1A33

      SBC System Name

      SBC system name or Redundancy Group name. For more information see, System and Instance Name Convention.
      Note: Ensure that the System Name you mention, while instantiating a new SBC instance is unique. In case, a new SBC instance is created with the same name as that of an already existing SBC with a different IP then the new SBC's registration request is rejected.

      MSBC
      SBC Personality Type

      Configure a SBC instance to either Integrated SBC (isbc), Signaling SBC (ssbc), or Media SBC (msbc) personality types.

      Default value is isbc.
