frame relay speed change

Discussion in 'Cisco' started by Jai Ramachandran, Jan 22, 2004.

  1. To whomever,
    The routers I am in charge of are all connected to a frame relay
    cloud. In the next week we are changing the speed of the frame relay
    cloud from 64 kbps to 128 kbps, and to do this I have to change (by my
    count) 5 lines of the router config. The problem with this is the
    only way I have access to these routers is through the said frame
    relay cloud, so once I change one of the lines I need to change, the
    frame relay connection goes down. At the bottom of this post is the
    router config to the router, any help would be appreciated because as
    of right now I am sending out laptops and console cables to our sales
    guys in the markets with the routers so that they can change the
    config manually.

  2. Hi,
    first of all,
    thank you for your detailed information about your router-config.
    Nice to have a point to break into without effort.
    Seriously, please do never post passwords, IP-addresses and/or
    Telephonenumbers on the net!

    To your question:
    One solution could be writing a new statup-configuration, putting that
    into the router (copy tftp: startup)
    and make a scheduled reload.

    Second solution could be writing a partial configuration that does
    change the f/r setup, upload it into the flash and then do
    "copy flash:<filename> running"
    This might not work, I've not recently checked if this process will
    abort when the telnet-session is disconnected. It did work some time ago...
    In the latter case it is advisable to have a scheduled reload pending so
    that in the case this process is not working a reload will restore the
    old config.

    Good luck

  3. Hi.

    What exactly are the changes you are planning to make?

    Can you not telnet to the router via the dialer interface?

    Another thing to try is to do a 'reload in 10' before you do any
    config changes. Then if you are thrown out of the router by a config
    line it will reload in 10 minutes back to the old config. Don't forget
    to do a 'reload cancel' if all goes well though.

    Someone posted various solutions to this problem recently and
    I used one of these myself recently.

    Consider using the "reload in XX" command to automatically
    recover from a change that does not work.

    tftp the new config on to the router.

    copy tftp run

    int e0
    ip address x.x.x.x y.y.y.z
    ip route a.a.a.a b.b.b.b c.c.c.c

    If you don't put in the "end" you get an error message but it
    still works.

    The file is completely uploaded before any changes are applied.

    BTW in my case there was a _very_ worrying pause during the
    process. On an 800 series it seemed to take a minute or so
    (more?) to apply the changes. Phew!

    If you are still in touch then cancel the reload.
    I have never done this, test it first.

    Alternatively I would suppose that you could "copy tftp start"
    and then verify that the config was what you wanted and
    then reload. There is of course no recovery from this if it
    doesn't work.

    The key point is:
    Copy tftp "run or start" works in exactly the same way as
    "conf t" in that the new config is "merged" with the
    existing config.
