Preface
Revised: February 2016, OL-31422-04
The Cisco Videoscape Distribution Suite Transparent Caching (VDS TC) solution is focused on reducing
costs and improving the quality of user experience in delivering unmanaged Internet-based content,
including Internet video, file sharing, software distribution, mobile application downloads, and web
browsing. VDS TC integrates highly scalable caching software with high-performance Cisco Unified
Computing System™ (UCS) C-Series Rack Servers and B-Series Blade Servers, Cisco switches, and
SAN storage. The VDS TC solution, combined with other Videoscape products, such as Cisco
Videoscape Distribution Suite for Internet Streaming (VDS IS), provides a complete platform for
optimizing managed and unmanaged content delivery.
Cluster Installation Overview
The Cisco VDS TC Cluster platform is a multi-server scalable system that is intended for the efficient
serving of P2P and HTTP user requests. A Cisco VDS-TC Cluster installation can optimize P2P and
HTTP object downloading traffic across ISP networks through high-performance caching.
Because of its flexible size, a Cisco VDS TC Cluster installation can meet both low-end and high-end
requirements, and can also grow in parallel with the customer network.
In a VDS TC Cluster configuration, the VDS TC software can run on the Cisco UCS C220 C- Series
Rack Servers or on the Cisco UCS B200 M3 B-Series Blade Servers. The cached objects for both
solutions are stored on an IBM or NetApp SAN storage device, and Cisco switches are used for data,
storage, and management connectivity. A VDS TC Cluster configuration that uses the Cisco UCS B200
Blade Servers can contain up to 16 Cisco UCS B200 cache engine blade servers and up to six NetApp
E2724 or five IBM DS3524 SAN storage enclosures. A separate Cisco UCS C220 is used as the VDS
TC Management Server.
This installation guide provides instructions for installing VDS TC on a Cisco Blade Server Cluster
platform, including installing and configuring the VDS TC Management Server, the VDS TC Cache
Engines, and the storage enclosures. This installation guide also discusses configuring the data and
management switches used by the VDS TC Blade Server Cluster installation.
Blade Server Cluster Models
There are three VDS TC Server cluster models that use the Cisco UCS B200 Blade Servers:

Configuring the Switches in a Blade Server
Cluster Installation
The VDS TC Blade Server Cluster installation has switches that provide two different functions:
•
Data switch: The Cisco UCS 6248 Fabric Interconnects connect to the data switch. The Cisco Blade
Server cache engines communicate with the data switch through the Fabric Interconnects. A Cisco
Nexus 7000 Series Switch is used for the VDS TC data switch, to which the Fabric Interconnect is
connected. In a redundant configuration there is one Cisco Nexus 7000 Series Switch, but it will
have two supervisor modules, two line cards, and redundant power supplies. There will also be two
Cisco UCS 6248 Fabric Interconnects that will connect to the Cisco Nexus 7000 Series Switch.
•
Management switch: The VDS TC Management Server, the storage chassis, and the management
ports of the Cisco Fabric Interconnect connect to the management switch. The Nexus 7000 Series
Switch is used as the management switch, as well as the data switch, using the Cisco Nexus
2232TME Fabric Extender if using NetApp SAN storage devices, or Cisco Nexus 2248TP Fabric
Extender if using IBM SAN storage devices. In a VDS-TC-4B and VDS-TC-8B non-redundant
installation, there will be only one Cisco Nexus 2232TME or Cisco Nexus 2248TP Fabric Extender.
For a non-redundant VDS-TC-16B installation and all redundant installations, there will be two
Cisco Nexus 2232TME or Cisco Nexus 2248TP Fabric Extenders.

Preparing for the VDS TC Switch Configuration
Connect to the Console
Before you can begin configuring the Cisco Nexus 7000 Series Switch, you must establish a local
management connection through a console terminal. Follow these steps to establish this connection:
Step 1
Step 2
Configure the terminal to match the following default port characteristics:
•
9600 baud
•
8 data bits
•
1 stop bit
•
no parity
Connect an RJ-45 rollover cable to one of the following serial ports on one of the supervisor modules on
the Cisco Nexus 7000 Series switch:
•
Console Serial Port: Use this port if you are not using a modem.
•
COM1/AUX Serial Port: Use this port if you are using a modem (available with only Supervisor 1).
You can find the RJ-45 rollover cable in the console cable connector kit, which is part of the
accessory kit for the Cisco Nexus 7000 Series switch.
Step 3
Route the RJ-45 rollover cable through the center slot in the cable management system and then to the
console or modem.
Step 4
Connect the other end of the RJ-45 rollover cable to the console or to a modem that can connect to the
console. If the console or modem cannot use an RJ-45 connection, use one of the following adapters from
the console cable connector kit:
•
RJ-45/DSUB F/F adapter
•
RJ-45/DSUB R/P adapter
•
DB-9F/RJ-45F PC terminal
Perform Initial Switch Configuration
Use the setup utility of the Cisco NX-OS Switch to configure the switch fundamentals and create the
Admin VDC. To perform this configuration, please refer to the Using the Cisco NX-OS Setup Utility
document available at
http://www.cisco.com/c/en/us/td/docs/switches/datacenter/sw/6_x/nx-os/fundamentals/configuration/g

Note
If you need to upgrade the Cisco NX-OS release that is installed on the Cisco Nexus 7000 Series switch,
please refer to “Cisco Nexus 7000 Series NX-OS Software Upgrade and Downgrade Guide, Release 6.x”
available at
http://www.cisco.com/c/en/us/td/docs/switches/datacenter/sw/6_x/nx-os/upgrade/guide/b_Cisco_Nexu
s_7000_Series_NX-OS_Software_Upgrade_and_Downgrade_Guide_Release_6-x.html.
Obtain VDS TC Switch Configuration Files
Before you can configure the switches to support the VDS TC installation, you must obtain a copy of the
switch configuration files. You will use these configuration files to help you configure the VDS TC
switch. The configuration files are available in a .tgz file that is available from the same location as the
VDS TC ISO image file on www.cisco.com.
After you download the switch configuration files from cisco.com, unzip the file and locate the
appropriate configuration files for your VDS TC installation. The switch configuration files for the
Nexus 7000 Series Switches for a blade installation will typically be located in the following directory:
examples\B-Series\VDS-TC-XB\Switch_Configuration\Nexus7K
where X is the number of blade servers in your VDS TC installation. For example, for a VDS-TC-8B
installation, the directory path would be
examples\B-Series\VDS-TC-8B\Switch_Configuration\Nexus7K.
Note
If you have a multicuster VDS-TC-16B solution, the switch configuration files for this solution should
be located in the examples\B-Series\VDS-TC-MULTIGRID-2x16B\Switches_Configuration folder.
Which configuration files you should reference depends on how many blades are in your cluster
installation. For example, if you have a Cisco VDS-TC-8B, you would locate the configuration files
named VDS-TC-8B-MAIN-VDC-ITD.txt and VDS-TC-8B-DATA-VDC-ITD-IPV4.txt.
Caution
The configuration files for the Main (Admin) VDC (these files will contain the word MAIN in their
name) should only be used as a reference. These files should not be copied to the Admin VDC.
VDS TC Management and Data Switch Configuration
Cisco Nexus 7000 Series Switch Configuration
Follow this procedure to configure the Cisco Nexus 7000 Series Switch that is being used in a Blade
Server cluster configuration:
Procedure
Step 1
Log into the CLI of the switch. You will need the username and password to access the CLI.
Step 2
You should make a backup copy of the current switch configuration before you configure the VDS TC
switch just in case you need to roll back the configuration. To save a copy of the current switch
configuration, use the copy command.
Cisco Videoscape Distribution Suite Transparent Caching Software Blade Server Cluster Installation Guide
OL-31422-04

Chapter 2
Configuring the Switches in a Blade Server Cluster Installation
Setup and Configuration of the Cluster Switches
Step 3
After you have backed up your current running configuration, enter the config t command to enter global
configuration mode. The global configuration mode prompt, switch(config)#, appears.
Step 4
Next you will create the data VDC. Enter the command vdc vdc_name, where vdc_name is the name of
the VDC to create. To determine the name to use for vdc_name, open the switch configuration file named
VDS-TC-XB-DATA-VDC-ITD-IPV4.txt, where X is the number of blades in your installation. Look for
the hostname command at the beginning of the file and use the hostname referenced with this command
as the VDC name.
For example, to create the data VDC for a VDS-TC-16B installation, enter the command:
vdc TC-16B-DATA
Step 5
To confirm that the VDC has been created, enter the command show vdc while still in vdc config mode.
Step 6
In VDC config mode, enter the following commands to assign interfaces to the VDC and allocate
resources:
a.
limit-resource module-type f2 f2e
b.
allow feature-set fex
c.
allocate interface Ethernet3/1-48
d.
If you have a redundant switch configuration also enter the command allocate interface
Ethernet4/1-48.
Step 7
Enter the command end to exit configuration mode.
Step 8
Enter the command show run and confirm the configuration of the newly created VDC.
Step 9
After you have confirmed the configuration, enter the command write or copy run start to save the
configuration.
Step 10
Next you will apply a configuration to the data VDC. The data VDC configuration files are contained in
the configuration .tgz file that you downloaded from cisco.com.
Step 11
Using a text editor, such as Notepad, open the appropriate data VDC configuration file and review the
switch configuration file.
Note
Which data VDC configuration file you should use depends on how many Blade Servers you have in your
installation and if you have a VDS-TC-16B solution, whether that solution is a multicluster
configuration. For example, if you have 16 Blade Servers in an installation that is not multicluster, you
would use the file named VDS-TC-16B-DATA-VDC-ITD-IPV4.txt. If you have 16 Blade Servers in a
multicluster installation, you would use the files named TC_16B_DATA_01_VDC_ITD_IPv4.txt and
TC_16B_DATA_02_VDC_ITD_IPv4.txt. The multicluster switch configuration files will be in the
examples\B-Series\VDS-TC-MULTIGRID-2x16B folder If you are unsure of which files to use, contact
your Cisco representative.
Step 12
Make sure that the configuration file will not overwrite any necessary settings in your current switch
configuration. Make any necessary changes to the switch configuration file that are appropriate for your
installation and save the changes.
Step 13
To switch to the data VDC, enter the command switchto vdc TC-XB-DATA, where X is the number of
Blade Servers you have installed. The VDC name that you are switching to should match the name of
the VDC that you created in Step 4, for example TC-16B-DATA.
Step 14
Enter the config t command to enter global configuration mode. The global configuration mode prompt,
switch(config)#, appears.
Step 15
Copy the content from the data VDC switch configuration file that you saved in Step 12 and paste them
into the global configuration mode prompt of the CLI connection to the Nexus 7000 Series Switch.

It is recommended that you copy and paste just a few lines at a time to avoid any errors that the Nexus
CLI parser may generate.
Step 16
Enter exit to return to Privileged mode.
Step 17
Enter show running-config and validate that the complete configuration was successful.
Step 18
After you have confirmed the configuration, enter the command write or copy run start to save the
configuration to nvram.
Step 19
Enter the command show int status and confirm that all of the physical, port channel, and VLAN
interfaces that are used by the VDS TC installation have a status of “connected.” For any of these
interfaces that have a status of “disabled”, perform the following steps:
a.
Enter the config t command to enter global configuration mode.
b.
Enter the command interface int-type slot#/por# for an interface that needs to be enabled.
c.
Enter the command no shutdown to enable the interface.
d.
Repeat Steps b and c for any additional interfaces that need to be enabled.
e.
Enter exit to return to Privileged mode.
f.
Enter the command show int status and confirm that the status of the newly enabled interfaces is
“connected”.
Note
If any of the interfaces that are used by the VDS TC installation have a status of “notconnected”, check
the cabling and configuration of these ports.
Step 20

Procedure
Step 1
If you do not already have a VNC client connection open to the VDS TC Management Server, open one
now. If you encounter problems opening a VNC client connection to the VDS TC Management Server,
you may need to restart VNC Server 1 on the VDS TC Management Server. Follow these steps to restart
this server:
a.
From an SSH connection to the VDS TC Management server where you are logged in with root
permissions, enter the command rm /tmp/.X11-unix/X1.
b.
Enter the command vncserver :1 to start the VNC Server.
Note
If you have problems restarting the VNC Server 1 instance, you can also start another VNC
Server instance by entering the command vncserver :2.
Step 2
From the VNC console window, if you are prompted to log in, enter the root user with the password that
was provided by Cisco. If you are not prompted to log in, enter the whoami command to determine the
username of the current session. Make sure that you are logged in as root. If you are not logged in as
root, enter the su root command to switch to the root user. Enter the password that was provided by Cisco
for the root account.
Step 3
From the VNC console, enter the command cd /opt/pang/utilities/MGMT/IBM/DS3500 to change
folders.
Step 4
Enter the command tar -zxvf SM10.86_Linux_64bit_x86-64_SMIA-10.86.x5.43.tgz.
Step 5
After the files are extracted, enter the command cd ./Linux_x64_10p86/Linux_x86-64/ to change
folders.
Step 6
Enter the command chmod 777 SMIA-LINUXX64-10.86.0A05.0043.bin to set permissions on the file.
Step 7
Next, to start the Management Station installation enter the command
./SMIA-LINUXX64-10.86.0A05.0043.bin.

Installing and Configuring the Cisco VDS TC
Cluster Software
This chapter includes information for installing the VDS TC Cluster platform software, including
pre-installation and post-installation steps.
The VDS TC Cluster software installation script installs the VDS TC caching software and installs
management tools, such as the VDS TC Management software, SNMP MIBs, and the CLI environment.
Upon completion, the installer performs some verification tests, such as verifying the directory structure
accessibility and the reachability of IP addresses.
Note
The steps in this chapter should only be run on the VDS TC Management Server. The procedures in this
chapter will distribute the Cisco software packages to all of the servers.
This chapter contains the following sections:
•
Installing the Management Environment and Software
•
Post Installation Steps
Installing the Management Environment and Software
Use this procedure to install the management environment and software:
Procedure
Step 1
Using an SSH session that is connected to the VDS TC Management server, enter the command su root
to login as the root user.
Step 2
Enter the command cd /tftpboot to change folders.
Step 3
Enter the ls command to see the name of the archive file. The file you are looking for will start with
VDS-TC_FI and will include Server_Cluster in the filename. Record the name of this file because you
will need it in a later step. The numbers in the archive file represent the version of the VDS TC caching
software. For example, the file named VDS-TC_FI_5.7.3b54_Server_Cluster.tar.gz would be for a VDS
TC Cluster installation and the version number of the software is 5.7.3b54.
Step 4
Enter the command mkdir version, where version is the version number in the archive file you
discovered in Step 3. For example, if the file you discovered in Step 3 was
VDS-TC_FI_5.7.3b54_Server_Cluster.tar.gz, enter the command mkdir 5.7.3b54.
Cisco Videoscape Distribution Suite Transparent Caching Software Blade Server Cluster Installation Guide
OL-31422-04
6-1
Chapter 6
Installing and Configuring the Cisco VDS TC Cluster Software
Installing the Management Environment and Software
Step 5
Use the cd command to change to the directory you created in Step 4, for example cd 5.7.3b54.
Step 6
You must extract the VDS-TC software from the packed archive, located in the /tftpboot folder. Enter
the command tar -zxvf ../archive_name, where archive_name is the name of the file you discovered in
Step 3. For example, enter the command
tar -zxvf ../VDS-TC_FI_5.7.3b54_Server_Cluster.tar.gz.
Step 7
Next you must edit the GA_installer.rc file to reflect the number of cache engine servers to be installed
in the Cluster. Use the command vi GA_installer.rc to edit this file. The following is an example of what
that file should look like for the first time install of four servers and the management server.
#MANAGEMENT_SOFTWARE {no, yes}
MANAGEMENT_SOFTWARE=yes
#UPGRADEL_CACHE_SOFTWARE {all, none, space separated list(ce-1 ce-2 ce-3 ce-4 ce-5 ce-6
ce-7 ce-8 ce-9 ce-10 ce-11 ce-12 ce-13 ce-14 ce-15 ce-16)}
UPGRADEL_CACHE_SOFTWARE=ce-1 ce-2 ce-3 ce-4
UPGRADE_TAR_BALL=<filename>.tar.gz
MANAGEMENT_ENVIRONMENT=yes
GRACE_UPGRADE=yes
FIRST_INSTALL=yes
Step 8
To adjust the number of cache engine servers being installed, edit the line
UPGRADEL_CACHE_SOFTWARE=ce-1 ce-2 ce-3 ce-4, listing the cache engines that you are
installing.
Step 9
When you are finished editing the GA_installer.rc file, in the vi editor enter :x and press Enter to save
and exit the file.
Step 10
Enter the command ./GA_installer.sh to run the first installation script.
Step 11
At the Enter primary name server IP prompt, enter the IP address of your primary DNS server.
Note
If a DNS server is unavailable, enter 0.0.0.0 as the IP address of the DNS server to prevent system
functionality from being negatively affected.
Step 12
Enter y to confirm the entry.
Step 13
At the Enter secondary name server IP prompt, enter the IP address of your secondary DNS server.
Note
If a secondary DNS server is unavailable, leave this entry blank.
Step 14
Enter y to confirm the entry.
Step 15
The GA Installer script displays a summary of the configuration. Review this configuration. If the
configuration is correct, press Y to proceed. If the configuration is not correct, press N to exit the
installation and start over.
Step 16
When asked if you want to change the management IPv4 settings, enter N unless you need to change the
IP address information that was configured during the original VDS TC Management Server installation.
If you enter Y, enter information at the following prompts:
•
Management IPv4 address ():
•
Management IPv4 netmask ():
•
Default IPv4 gateway ():

Note
To accept the current setting, press Enter.
When asked if you want to change the management IPv6 settings, enter N.
While the VDS TC software contains the infrastructure to configure IPv6 on the management server, this
functionality is not currently supported.
Wait for the installation script to finish before continuing on to the next step.
This script may take up to an hour to finish.
Post Installation Steps
Use the following procedure after installing the management environment and software to perform the
post installation steps. Part of the post installation steps is to copy a configuration file to the VDS TC
Management Server. The configuration file sets the environment variables and configuration for the VDS
TC application. A sample configuration file is provided in a .tgz file that is available from the same
location as the VDS TC ISO image file on www.cisco.com. In this section you will copy an example
configuration file, edit this file, and import the new configuration file to the VDS TC Management
Server. For more information about editing the configuration files in this section, see the Cisco
Videoscape Distribution Suite Transparent Caching Software Configuration Guide.
Procedure
Step 1
Download the configuration .tgz file that is available from the same location as the VDS TC ISO image
file on www.cisco.com. In this .tgz file, locate the sample configuration file that matches the number of
VDS TC Cache Engines that are installed in your VDS TC Blade Server installation.
Step 2
Edit the sample configuration file and make the required changes in the following sections. For more
information on editing the required parameters in the cluster_conf.xml file, see the Cisco Videoscape
Distribution Suite Transparent Caching Software Configuration Guide.
•
The <mgmt-config> controls the management IP environment section.
•
The <network> section controls the data network addresses.
•
The <service> section controls the cache out port configuration.
Step 3
Save your changes and rename the file cluster_conf.xml.
Step 4
Using SFTP software, such as WinSCP, connect to the management IP address that you assigned to the
VDS TC Management Server. Log in using the user name padmin and the password that was provided
by Cisco.
Step 5
Copy the example configuration file that you saved in Step 3 into the /tftpboot folder on the VDS TC
Management Server.
Step 6
From an SSH session that is connected to the VDS TC Management Server, enter the command su
admin. The system will notify you that the cluster_conf.xml file is not valid because the file does not
exit and then the Regular mode prompt, console>, appears.

Copy the license file to the /tftpboot/ folder on the VDS TC Management Server using SFTP software,
such as WinSCP.
Step 2
To import the license file to the system from the VDS TC Enable mode CLI, enter the command license
import 127.0.0.1 filename, where filename is the license file name. When you enter this command, the
details of the license will be displayed. Verify the features of the license and the expiration date.
Step 3
To activate the imported license, enter the command license activate. Enter Y when prompted to confirm
the activation.
Step 4
After activating the license, exit completely from the VDS TC CLI.
Step 5
To confirm that the license is activated, log back into the CLI of the system using the username admin.
From the VDS TC CLI prompt, enter the command enable. When prompted, enter the Enable mode
password and press Enter. Enter the command show license to confirm that the license is activated.
Note
If you see the message “No valid license found”, make sure that you exit completely from the CLI of the
VDS TC system and repeat Step 5.
Step 6
Enter the command oper service start to start the VDS TC service.
Step 7
To confirm that the VDS TC service has successfully started, enter the command show status and look
for a device state of “started”.
Note
Whenever you enter the oper services start command you should also enter the command show
volumes to confirm that all volumes show a state of “mounted”.
