Update eNB or EPC

How To Update eNB or EPC

This document will show how to modify the parameters on an instantiated eNB or EPC service. It is required to have:

  • A NMS network setup with a SlapOS Master (COMP-ROOT) and first node (COMP-0)
  • An Amarisoft LTE or equiavalent software release installed on a LTE Box (COMP-123)
  • An existing instance of eNB or EPC
  • A user account to the NMS system

Updating Instance Parameters

Each software usually provides a number of configuration parameters which can be set before instantiating a service (creating an instance). After the service has been instantiated, all parameters are accessible and editable on the service page of the NMS Dashboard.

Note, that updating an instance (for example by changing a parameter), will only update this specific instance. All other instances of the same service remain unchanged. In order to update all instances of a service (for example adding a new parameter), it is required to create a new software release and trigger the update of all instances to change to this new release.

Add the License Key Path which in this case points to /etc/amarisoft/.

Save Service ENB-EDIT
