Summary of AR and Controller Interconnection Configuration Tasks

Summary of AR and Controller Interconnection Configuration Tasks

Table 15-1 describes the scenarios and configuration tasks.

Table 15-1  Device and controller interconnection tasks

Scenario

Description

Task

Factory setting

The configuration file before delivery includes the controller information and management IP address. After a device connects to the network, the device actively registers with the controller. You only need to add AR routers to the controller, and then the controller uniformly manages the devices.

If the configuration file has been customized according to the live network situation, this method can be used. The controller information in the configuration file before delivery must be the same as the controller information on the live network. If the controller information in the configuration file is inconsistent with the controller information on the live network, you must manually modify the configuration file or use the command line method.

USB-based deployment

The controller information and management IP address are obtained during USB-based deployment. After a device connects to the network and has a USB flash drive installed, the device actively registers with the controller. You only need to add AR routers to the controller, and then the controller uniformly manages the devices.

If the devices on the network are deployed using the USB flash drive, you can choose this method. You need to add the controller information when creating the index file.

  1. For details about USB-based deployment, see USB-based Deployment Configuration in the Huawei AR Series Access Routers Configuration Guide - Basic Configuration.
  2. Adding an AR to the Controller

DHCP

After a DHCP-enabled device connects to the network, the DHCP server (which may be an egress gateway or an independent DHCP server) sends a DHCP packet to the device. The Option 148 field in the packet includes the controller information. The device also obtains the management IP address. After obtaining controller information, the devices actively registers with the controller. You only need to add AR routers to the controller, and then the controller uniformly manages the devices.

This method requires that the Option 148 (carrying controller information) be configured on the DHCP server. The device functions as a DHCP client to obtain controller information and management IP address from the DHCP server.

Command line

After a device connects to the network, you need to run the related commands on the device to obtain controller information. After obtaining controller information, the devices actively registers with the controller. In addition, you need to add AR routers to the controller, and then the controller uniformly manages the devices.

This method is complex, and is applicable to the networks with a small number of devices.
