Setup esams atlas anchor
Closed, ResolvedPublic


Not sure of the exact steps, but inspired from T83045:

  • Assign IP
  • Obtain image
  • Rack device (or at least assign rack space)
  • Add device to Netbox
  • Configure switch port in sandbox vlan
  • load image on the device (see )
  • Connect anchor's uplink and console
  • Verify connectivity to the anchor
  • On the RIPE website, go to the "My Atlas" menu and then "Anchors", and check the box "software is installed"
  • Add Anchor to monitoring

@mark assigned asset tag WMF4203 to this device. The image has also been generated (for AS43821) and can be found on install1002.

Have we acquired a new image for AS14907 yet?

Have we acquired a new image for AS14907 yet?

We have for some time now. It can be found on install1002 -- I've deleted the AS43821 image to avoid any confusion.

Update: given the upcoming follow-up visit to esams next week, I requested a new image from RIPE. I got it today, and it can be found in the same place, as "".

The Anchor is now installed, connected to the SCS, and we see a getty on serial with the right hostname. It's also now responsive to IPv4 pings but not IPv6 (which matches our previous experiene with regards to the initial install).

I went ahead and checked "software is installed" in the RIPE Atlas portal. I believe this generates a task for their engineers to finalize the install; the form mentioned "It may take up to a week to run the tests for your anchor". I'll update as soon as we hear back.

After that, the only thing remaining would be to set up monitoring on our end (incl. anchor-to-anchor measurements), but this is blocked on the above.

The nl-ams-as14907 anchor is now fully online and has ID #6671.
