Prerequisites for Configuring Virtual Services
You must be in a user group associated with a task group that includes the proper task IDs. The command reference guides include the task IDs required for each command. If you suspect user group assignment is preventing you from using a command, contact your AAA administrator for assistance.
Before configuring virtual services, you must have the following hardware and software installed on the Cisco ASR 9000 Series Router:
Hardware — Cisco ASR 9000 Series Aggregation Services Router (ASR90xx and ASR99xx) with Cisco ASR 9000 Virtualized Service Module (VSM) Card installed.
The Cisco ASR 9000 VSM Card is not supported on the Cisco Aggregation Services Router ASR9001 Router.
Software — Cisco IOS XR Software Release 5.1.1 or later.
