I aim to enable RESTCONF server on Cisco IOS-XRv 9000.

I did not find online anything about enabling HTTP server in this IOS-XR version. However, with NETCONF server can be enabled.

For IOS-XE is quite easy to enable RESTCONF where you use only

(config)# ip http server
(config)# restconf-yang

But in IOS-XR is not the same. Anyone can help :)

  • Last time i saw this enabled, you just had to write RP/0/RP0/CPU0:router(config)# http server without ip in front of it. Have you installed the Manageability package and activated it?

  • @Cown it does not work with RP/0/RP0/CPU0:router(config)# http server. For the Manageability package, I did not. Mar 6, 2019 at 13:01
  • What happens when you write the command http server? What log is generated?

  • @Cown .% Invalid input detected at '^' marker Is it required to install Software Package Management Commands on the Cisco IOS XR Software in order to enable http server ? Mar 6, 2019 at 13:07
  • For the XML and HTTP host services, the Manageability package must be installed and activated on the router.

RESTCONF is not supported on IOS-XR. Only NETCONF and gRPC.
