Introduction

This page describes how to configure site-wide vs. local settings in a M500 dual-cell configuration. 



Site-wide vs. Local settings

Site-wide settings are applicable to all base stations in a dual-cell configuration. When you update a site-wide setting via provisioning, the setting will be automatically updated for all base stations in the system. 

Local settings are applicable to a specific base station in a dual-cell configuration. When you update a local setting via provisioning, the setting will only be updated for the specified base station. 

WebUI

On the primary base station, the WebUI displays both site-wide settings and local settings:

  • Changes to the site-wide settings will be automatically applied to all base stations.
  • Changes to the local settings will only be applied to the primary base station.

On the secondary base station, the WebUI displays local settings only:

  • Changes to the local settings will be only be applied to the secondary base station.


Below are some examples of WebUI pages that display local settings:

System Base Preferences


Network Advanced


Servicing Provisioning


The following local settings are not available on the WebUI, and must be configured via provisioning:

Provisioning

The file fetching rules for provisioning.server_address stay the same, but the way that imported settings are applied depends on the base type:

Base TypeImport Behavior
Single

All settings will be self applied.

Primary
Secondary

Note: Before it joins a site, a secondary base will self apply all settings.

Suggested practice for dual-cell operation

Have one MAC-specific file (e.g. snomM500-000413A11FA7.htm) for each individual base.

  • Include local settings for each base to its associated MAC file for both primary and secondary base.
  • Include site-wide settings to the MAC file of the primary base. Alternatively, site-wide settings can be included to a separate generic file (e.g. snomM500.htm) if separating local and site-wide settings in two files is the preferred approach.

Exporting settings

The way that settings are exported depends on the base type:

Base TypeExport Behavior
Single

All settings will be exported.

Primary

Both site-wide settings and local settings will be exported.

Secondary

Only local settings will be exported.

Note: Before it joins a site, a secondary base will export all settings.
