How to recover an SBR replica server after the download fails.
Problem or Goal
Replica server failed while downloading a configuration package.  How do I recover the Replica server?
If a replica server fails during the download of a configuration package, the configuration may be corrupted or it may have a stale secret.

To recover after a failed download:
  1. Stop the RADIUS service on the replica server.
  2. Log into the replica server as root.
  3. Open a command window and navigate to the \Radius\Service directory (Windows) or /opt/juniper/radius directory (Solaris/Linux).
  4. Run the sbrsetuptool utility with the identity option and information on where to download configuration information.
    • To obtain configuration from a configuration package, issue the following command:
      # sbrsetuptool -identity REPLICA -reppkg pathname

      pathname specifies the path to a replica.ccmpkg package.
    • To obtain configuration from the primary server for the realm, issue the following command:
      # sbrsetuptool -identity REPLICA -primary name address secret

      name specifies the DNS name of the primary server
      address specifies the IP address of the primary server
      secret specifies the shared secret used to authenticate configuration downloads.
  5. Restart the updated replica server so that it can load its new configuration. After the replica server is restarted, it will be re-synchronized with the current primary server.
