This Best Practice includes instructions for configuring Ethernet Redundancy on an SBC 1000/2000, as well as on an SBC 1000/2000 for ASM and CCE.

For details on SBC Edge Ethernet Redundancy, refer to Managing Ethernet Ports.

Configure Ethernet Redundancy - Ethernet Port 1 for Pairing to Ethernet Port 3

  1. Access the WebUI.
  2. Access Node Interfaces > Ports  and select Ethernet 1.

  3. From the Frame Type drop down list, select Untagged.
  4. From Default Untagged VLAN drop down list, select Ethernet 1 VLAN.

    Figure : Ethernet 1

  5. From the Redundancy drop down list, select Failover.

    Figure : Failover Option

  6. From the Redundant Port drop down list, select the port for redundancy (in below example, the port is Ethernet 3).

  7. Click OK.

    Following configuration, Ethernet 1 displays as the Primary role and Ethernet 3 displays as the Secondary role. See below.

Configure Redundancy for ASM

For communication between the SBC 1000/2000 and the ASM to work properly, the ASM port's Default Untagged VLAN must be configured to a VLAN whose logical IP address is in the same subnet as the ASM's IP address. For example, if the ASM port's default VLAN is set to Ethernet 1 VLAN, the logical interface Ethernet 1 IP must have its IP address in the same subnet as the ASM IP.

Configure Redundancy for ASM with CCE

To configure Ethernet Redundancy with a CCE, follow the above steps to configure an additional pair of Ethernet ports. For example, Ethernet 2 and Ethernet 4. Ensure the Default Untagged VLAN configuraiton for Port ASM 1 matches the configuconfiguration for Ethernet 2.
