IOx Configuration on IR829

Version 20

    IR829 router is similar to CGR routers. And IR809 is same as IR829.

     

    IR829 has one GE0 wan interface which needs an Ethernet SFP for connecting the WAN Ethernet cable in our LAB switch, four LAN switch ports and 2 serial interfaces.

     

    Access the console of IR829:

    IR829 is using a mini-USB port for the serial interface. Please use a Mini-USB cable to connect to your PC. You may need to install the driver for the console. Here is the link for the drive. The default baud rate is 9600. For details, please refer to Cisco IR829 Industrial Integrated Services Router Hardware Installation Guide - Connecting the Router [Cisco 800 Series ….

     

     

    Bundle image installation on the 829:

    bundle image can be used to upgrade the 829 - ir800-universalk9-bundle.SPA.156-1.T1.bin -- which has IOS, guset OS , Hypervisor from ir800-universalk9-bundle.SPA.156-1.T1.bin. You need to download the bundle image from CCO and uploaded it for IR829 flash by SCP, HTTP, TFTP, etc. For example:

    copy scp://username@10.10.10.10//home/username/ir800-universalk9-bundle.SPA.156-1.T1.bin flash:

    bundle install flash:ir800-universalk9-bundle.SPA.156-1.T1.bin

    The image can be upgraded using the 829 bundle image available here Cisco Systems CCO. You can upgrade the images individually also.

    Please notify, the 15.6 or later can be upgraded from 15.5.3 only. All the other version such as 15.5.2 or earlier must be upgrated to 15.5.3 first, and then upgraded to 15.6 or later.

     

    IR829 Configuration:

    • Step1: Configure the wan interface of the 829 router GE0.

    ===========================================

    Set the GE interface with the specific IP address and network mask.

    "ip nat outside" to specify that the interface is connected to the outside network. If your GOS is assigned with a publish IP address, you don’t need to set the NAT related in all the configurations below.

     

    interface GigabitEthernet0

    ip address 72.163.206.123 255.255.255.0

    ip nat outside

    ip virtual-reassembly in

     

    [NOTE]: Here GLC-T SFP for GE0 is supported. The OS version on which it is officially supported is 15.5(3)M0a or above. And you need to add the below CLI.

    config terminal

    service internal

    service unsupported-transceiver

     

    And you may also use the GE interfaces (GE1-4) instead of WAN interface to access internet. Here we use GE1 and Vlan999 as an example.

    interface GigabitEthernet1

    switchport access vlan 999

    no ip address

    !

    interface Vlan999

    ip address 10.75.189.144 255.255.255.0

    ip nat outside

    ip virtual-reassembly in

    !

     

    • Step2: Configure the "ip route" and "ip default gateway"

    =======================================

    ip default-gateway 72.163.206.1                              //or 10.75.189.1 if you are using GE1 as example

    ip router 0.0.0.0 0.0.0.0 72.163.206.1                      //or 10.75.189.1 if you are using GE1 as example

     

    • Step 3: Configure the GOS and IOS connectivity interface - GE5

    =============================================

    ip nat inside  -  Enter ip nat inside to specify that the interface is connected to the inside network and

    ipv6 enable   -  IPv6 must be enabled also have to configured

     

    interface GigabitEthernet5

    ip address 192.168.1.1 255.255.255.0

    ip nat inside

    ip virtual-reassembly in

    duplex auto

    speed auto

    ipv6 enable

     

    • Step 4: To assign an IP address to the Guest OS, configure a Local DHCP pool:

    ============================================================

    ip dhcp excluded-address 192.168.1.1 192.168.1.5

     

    ip dhcp pool gospool

    network 192.168.1.0 255.255.255.0

    default-router 192.168.1.1                                 <<<<<<<<<<<<<<<,GE5 is the gateway to GOS

    dns-server 64.104.123.144

     

    • Step 5: Nat configurations:

    ====================

    ip nat inside source list NAT_ACL interface GigabitEthernet0 overload

    ip nat inside source static tcp 192.168.1.6 22 interface GigabitEthernet0 2222

    ip nat inside source static tcp 192.168.1.6 8443 interface GigabitEthernet0 8443

     

    ip access-list standard NAT_ACL

    permit 192.168.0.0 0.0.255.255

     

    [NOTE]: Please replace the GigabitEthernet0 with Vlan999 in case the GE1-4 is used for connecting internet.

    ip nat inside source list NAT_ACL interface Vlan999 overload

    ip nat inside source static tcp 192.168.1.6 22 interface Vlan999 2222

    ip nat inside source static tcp 192.168.1.6 8443 interface Vlan999 8443

     

    ip access-list standard NAT_ACL

    permit 192.168.0.0 0.0.255.255


    Make sure 8443 is enabled for further deployment of applications. Verifying GOS is running and got the IP address from the DHCP pool with “show iox host list detail”.

    And you should have “privilege 15” to access the Web interface (such as IOx Local Manager) for IR829. The IOS command is: username yourusername privilege 15 password 0 yourpassword

     

     

    Verifying GOS is running and get the IP address from the DHCP pool:

    =================================================

    IR800#show iox host list detail

    Starting Guset OS :

    ===========

    IR800#guest-os 1 start

     

    Stopping GOS:

    ============

    IR800#guest-os 1 stop

     

    Upgrade of guest OS:

    ============

    Copy Guest OS image to IOS flash partition

    guest-os 1 stop

    guest-os 1 image uninstall

    guest-os 1 image install flash:<GOS image in falsh> verify

    guset-os 1 start

     

    If you want to install the original Guest OS from the bundle image, you may run the below command:

    bundle install flash:<bundle image in falsh> exclude HV-IOS

     

    All the cartridges and applications for IOx are stored in the specific partition in IR829, and will not be impacted by the upgrade of Guest OS. If you have installed the cartridges and applications for the old Guest OS, all the cartridges and applications will be still there after the upgrade with the new Guest OS. (Please notify: for some early versions, due to the modification of CAF framework, there is some impact for the applications. You'd better remove all the cartridges and applications before upgrade of Guest OS to avoid the incompatibility, and then re-install them accordingly after upgrade.)
