Designates the address of the MIPv6HA service and specifies the
maximum number of subscribers that can access this service over the interface.

Entering the above command sequence results in the following prompt:
bind address IPv6_address [ max-subscribers count ]
no bind address
Removes the bound address from the HA service.
Specifies the IPv6 address of the MIPv6HA service using IPv6
Specifies the maximum number of subscribers that can access this
service on this interface.
count is an integer from 0 through 4000000.
The maximum number of subscribers supported depends on the installed
license key and the number of active packet processing cards installed in the
system. Refer to the
license key command for additional
Use this command to associate the HA service with a specific logical
IP address. The logical IP address or interface takes on the characteristics of
a Pi interface. Only one interface can be bound to a service. The interface
should be configured prior to issuing this command.
This command also sets a limit as to the number of simultaneous
subscribers sessions that can be facilitated by the service/interface at any
When configuring the
max-subscribers option, be sure to consider
The total number of interfaces that you will configuring for use
as Pi interfaces
The maximum number of subscriber sessions that all of these
interfaces may handle during peak busy hours
The average bandwidth for each of the sessions
The type of physical port to which these interfaces will be bound
Taking these factors into account and distributing your subscriber
session across all available interfaces will allow you to configure your
interfaces to optimally handle sessions without degraded performance.
The following command binds the logical IP interface with the address
2001:4A2B::1f3F to the HA service and
specifies that a maximum of
600 simultaneous subscriber sessions can be
facilitated by the interface/service at any given time.
bind address 2001:4A2B::1f3F max-subscribers 600
The following command disables a binding that was previously
