We're trying to deploy an Arris MTA using NCS firmware to a Cisco uBR7246VXR... provisioning is ISC DHCP. We're fighting an issue with how we want the cable modems and then the MTA to come online. We want the cable modem to grab a level of service config file under it's cable MAC address, and then the MTA to make it's own DHCP request under the MTA mac address and grab a file macaddy.mta
When we use the SNMPmib of arrisMTAProvMethodIndicator.0 gupiMacMta, the cable modem will boot, but the MTA never makes it's DHCP request. When we use .9 gupiMacMta, the cable modem boots, and the MTA makes a DHCP request, but it hangs on option 122.3 which is the provisioning server. I've seen multiple references to option docsis-mta.provision-server being either an IP address or a string. Which is it? Has anyone gotten a TM602G to work in this way?
