In this section:

The Cluster Admin commands control communications among SBC nodes in a cluster configuration. You must configure the clusterAdmin clusterComm options on M-SBC clusters in a distributed SBC SWe deployment. This configuration is visible only for M-SBC clusters and must be completed prior to configuring a load balancing service to distribute media request among the media nodes.

Note

You must restart the SBC after changing the IP address for intra-cluster communication.

Command Syntax

The following syntax shows the first-level parameters under clusterAdmin. The subsequent options differ depending on the option you specify for type.

% set system clusterAdmin clusterComm type <ip | mgmt>  

clusterComm Syntax (M-SBC Deployments Only)

Intra-cluster communications can be configured to occur on either the management interface (default) or a packet interface. The parameters differ based on the type specification as shown below.

clusterComm type = ip
% set system clusterAdmin clusterComm type ip
	addressContext <addressContext name>
	ipInterfaceGroup <IPIG name>
	pktIpVar <metaVariable> 
clusterComm type = mgmt
% set system clusterAdmin clusterComm type mgmt
   	mgmtInterfaceGroup mgmtGroup 
   	mgmtIpVar <metaVariable>

Command Parameters

The following table describes the parameters under clusterAdmin clusterComm you can use to configure intra-cluster communication for an M-SBC deployment.

Table : clusterComm Parameter Descriptions

ParameterLength/RangeDescription
typeN/A

Interface type to use for intra-cluster communication.

  • ip - to use a packet interface.
  • mgmt (default) - to use the management interface.
type = ip
addressContextN/AAddress context containing the IP interface group to use for intra-cluster communication.
ipInterfaceGroupN/A<IPIG name> – The name of the IP interface group for intra-cluster communication.
pktIpVar1-255 characters

<metaVariable> – The configuration metaVariable that specifies the IP address for intra-cluster communication.

 

type = mgmt
mgmtInterfaceGroupN/A

The management interface group for intra-cluster VNFC communication.

    • mgmtGroup (default)
mgmtIpVar1-255 characters

<metaVariable>The configuration metaVariable that specifies the IP address for intra-cluster communication. (default = IF0.IPV6)

 

Configuration Examples

To configure packet interface using IPv6 address for VNFC communication in an M-SBC cluster:

% set system clusterAdmin clusterComm type ip addressContext default ipInterfaceGroup MLIG2 pktIpVar IF3.IPV6
commit

 

To configure packet interface using IPv4 address for VNFC communication in an M-SBC cluster:

% set system clusterAdmin clusterComm type ip addressContext default ipInterfaceGroup MLIG2 pktIpVar IF3.IPV4
commit

 

To configure management interface using IPv6 address for VNFC communication in an M-SBC cluster:

% set system clusterAdmin clusterComm type mgmt mgmtInterfaceGroup mgmtGroup mgmtIpVar IFO.IPV6
commit

 

To configure management interface using IPv4 address for VNFC communication in an M-SBC cluster:

% set system clusterAdmin clusterComm type mgmt mgmtInterfaceGroup mgmtGroup mgmtIpVar IFO.IPV4
commit
