  • Route RPKI validation April 1st, 2022
    RPKI is a security framework by which network owners can validate and secure the critical route updates or Border Gateway Protocol (BGP) announcements between public Internet networks. BGP is essentially the central nervous system of the Internet and one of its fundamental building blocks. The main function of BGP is to facilitate efficient routing between Autonomous Systems (AS), by building and maintaining the Internet routing table. The Internet routing table is effectively the navigation system of the Internet and without it, traffic would be unable to flow between its constituent networks. Unfortunately, routing equipment alone cannot distinguish between legitimate and malicious routing announcements,...
  • RIPE – Atlas Anchor February 17th, 2022
    We have become an even more integral part of the RIPE Atlas project by hosting an anchor, a device that allows for latency analysis of traffic between autonomous systems.https://atlas.ripe.net/probes/7073/RIPE Atlas anchors play an integral role in the RIPE Atlas network by acting both as enhanced RIPE Atlas probes with more measurement capacity, as well as regional measurement targets within the greater RIPE Atlas network. Anchors are able to perform many more measurements than a regular RIPE Atlas probe, and the large amount of data they collect is made available to everyone. In addition, anchors act as powerful targets that can...
  • MANRS June 20th, 2020
    GOLINE firmly believes in initiatives to protect networks, improve security and resilience of the global routing system. Therefore we decided to support the MANRS project and join as participants.Mutually Agreed Norms for Routing Security (MANRS) is a global initiative, supported by the Internet Society, that provides crucial fixes to reduce the most common routing threats. MANRS offers specific actions via four programs for Network Operators, Internet Exchange Points, CDN and Cloud Providers, and Equipment Vendors. Requirements for Participation Please read the full MANRS Actions document before applying. You can become a participant if you meet these requirements: You (or your company) support...

Cisco ASR 1002 – Upgrade ROMMON

Paolo Caparrelli Cisco 22 June 2022

 The hw-module slot slot reload command cannot be used to reload an active RP. If you must reload an active RP to complete a ROMmon upgrade, reload the RP using one of the following methods:
- Run the reload command to reload the entire router.
- Force a switchover using the redundancy force-switchover command, and then run the hw-module slot slot reload command on the RP after it has become the standby RP.


 


Note The ROMmon upgrade is not permanent for any piece of hardware until a Cisco IOS XE Release 12.2(33r)XND1 or newer image is booted. If ROMmon is configured to manually boot on your system, run the boot command to boot the Cisco IOS XE image and make the upgrade permanent.


 

Step 6 Run the show platform command or the show rom-monitor slot command for each RP, ESP, MIP, and SIP in the router to confirm that the ROMmon has been upgraded.

Example of Upgrading the ROMmon for a Single RP, ESP, MIP, or SIP on a Router

The following sequence of commands is an example of the procedure to upgrade the ROMmon for a single RP, ESP, MIP, or SIP on a router:


Note The release numbers of ROMmon mentioned in this example are for illustrative purposes only.
