Secure Domain Router Commands on the Cisco IOS XR Software

Secure Domain Router Commands on the Cisco IOS XR Software

Secure domain routers (SDRs) provide a means of partitioning a router into multiple, independent routers. SDRs perform routing functions in the same manner as a physical router but share resources with the rest of the system. For example, the applications, configurations, protocols, and routing tables assigned to an SDR belong to that SDR only, but other functions such as chassis control, switch fabric, and partitioning are shared with the rest of the system.

For detailed information about secure domain router concepts, configuration tasks, and examples, see the Configuring Secure Domain Routers on Cisco IOS XR Software module in Cisco IOS XR System Management Configuration Guide for the Cisco XR 12000 Series Router.

location (SDR)

To assign a node to a secure domain router (SDR), use the location command in SDR configuration mode. To remove a node from an SDR and return the node to the owner SDR, use the no form of this command.

location partially-qualified-nodeid [primary]

no location partially-qualified-nodeid

Syntax Description

partially-qualified-nodeid

Node to be assigned to the specified secure domain router. Refer to the Usage Guidelines for the syntax required in each router platform.

Command Default

All nodes are assigned to the owner SDR.

Command Modes

SDR configuration

Command History

Release

Modification

Release 3.2

This command was introduced.

Release 3.3.0

The term logical router (LR) was changed to secure domain router (SDR).

Usage Guidelines

To use this command, you must be in a user group associated with a task group that includes appropriate task IDs. If the user group assignment is preventing you from using a command, contact your AAA administrator for assistance.

Use the location command to assign a node to an SDR. By default, all nodes belong to the owner SDR. When a node is assigned to a non-owner SDR, it is automatically removed from the owner SDR inventory.

Use the no form of the location command to remove a node from an SDR. Removing a node from an SDR implicitly returns it to the owner SDR. When a node has been removed from an SDR, it can be reassigned to another SDR. To remove the designated secure domain router system controller (DSDRSC), you must first remove all other nodes in the SDR. You cannot remove the designated system controller (DSC) from the owner SDR.


Note


Removing all nodes from an SDR deletes the secure domain router from the configuration.


Usage Notes

  • Enter the value of the partially-qualified-nodeid argument to specify a single node. The value of the nodeid argument is entered in the rack/slot/* notation. Node IDs are always specified at the slot level, so the wildcard (*) is used to specify the CPU.
  • The first RP you assign to the SDR will become the DSDRSC. To add a redundant standby RP to the configuration, install a second RP in the adjacent redundancy slot and add it to the SDR configuration. For more information, see Configuring Secure Domain Routers on Cisco IOS XR Software.

Examples

The following example shows how to create an SDR, and assign RPs in adjacent redundancy slots to be the DSDRSC:

RP/0/0/CPU0:router# admin
RP/0/0/CPU0:router(admin)# configure
RP/0/0/CPU0:router(admin-config)# sdr rname 
RP/0/0/CPU0:router(admin-config-sdr:rname)# location 0/2/*
RP/0/0/CPU0:router(admin-config-sdr:rname)# location 0/3/*
RP/0/0/CPU0:router(admin-config-sdr:rname)# commit
RP/0/0/CPU0:router(admin-config-sdr:rname)# end
   

The following example shows how to add a node to an SDR:

RP/0/0/CPU0:router# admin 
RP/0/0/CPU0:router(admin)# configure 
RP/0/0/CPU0:router(admin-config)# sdr rname 
RP/0/0/CPU0:router(admin-config-sdr:rname)# location 0/5/* 
RP/0/0/CPU0:router(admin-config-sdr:rname2)# end
   

The following example shows how to remove a node from an SDR:

 
RP/0/0/CPU0:router# admin 
RP/0/0/CPU0:router(admin)# configure 
RP/0/0/CPU0:router(admin-config)# sdr rname 
RP/0/0/CPU0:router(admin-config-sdr:rname)# no location 0/5/* 
RP/0/0/CPU0:router(admin-config-sdr:rname2)# end

Description

sdr

Creates or modifies an existing secure domain router.

sdr

To create a secure domain router (SDR) and enter SDR configuration mode, use the sdr command in administration configuration mode. To remove a secure domain router from the configuration, use the no form of this command.

sdr sdr-name

no sdr sdr-name

Syntax Description

sdr-name

Name of the SDR to be created or modified.

Command Default

The system comes configured as a single secure domain router known as the owner SDR.

Usage Guidelines

To use this command, you must be in a user group associated with a task group that includes appropriate task IDs. If the user group assignment is preventing you from using a command, contact your AAA administrator for assistance.

Use the sdr command to create an SDR or modify an existing SDR.


Note


The sdr-name argument creates an SDR if the SDR specified for the sdr-name argument does not exist.


By default, a router running Cisco IOS XR software contains one SDR, the owner SDR. You cannot create the owner SDR because it always exists—nor can you completely remove it because it is necessary for managing the router.

After the sdr command is used, the router enters SDR configuration mode. From SDR configuration mode, you can add nodes to the SDR or remove nodes from the SDR using the location (SDR) command.

Use the no form of the command to remove a non-owner SDR configuration. When an SDR is removed from the router configuration, all nodes included in the SDR configuration are returned to the owner SDR inventory. The owner SDR cannot be removed.

Maximum Number of SDR Configurations

We recommend a maximum of four SDRs, including one owner SDR and up to three non-owner SDRs.
