To support the functionality provided by the 15530-FCGE-8P, while maintaining the existing 15530-LCMB-0200 line card support, the following minimum Functional Images on the following cards are required to support the 15530-FCGE-8P: 15530-ITU2-xxxx (Version 2.31 or later), 15530-ITU3-xxxx (Version 1.70 or later) and 15530-10GE-UPLINK (Version 2.31 or later). Only trunk and uplink cards with an older Functional Image are required to be upgraded. To identify the Functional Image version of a board, please see the How to Identify Hardware Levels section below.
The 15530-FCGE-8P added Fiber Channel and Gigabit Ethernet functionality to the 15530 platform. This functionality requires an update to the Functional Image of the 15530-ITU2-xxxx, 15530-ITU3-xxxx and 15530-10GE-UPLINK cards. To determine the version of a card's Functional Image, see the How to Identify Hardware Levels section below. Functional Image updates can be performed using the steps defined in the Workaround/Solution section below.
The Functional images provided with the 15530-ITU2-xxxx (Version 2.18), 15530-ITU3-xxxx (Version 1.63) and 15530-10GE-UPLINK (Version 2.18) do not support the features of the new 15530-FCGE-8P.
To update a line card functional image from a flash memory device to a hardware controller, use the reprogram device:filename slot command in privileged exec mode from a console session.
For the 15530-ITU2-xxxx= and 15530-10GE-UPLINK, Functional Image Version 2.31 or later is required. The filename is fi-ons15530-xge.A.2-31.exo.
For the 15530-ITU3-xxxx=, Functional Image version 1.70 or later is required. The filename is fi-ons15530-2p5ge.A.1-70.exo.
Note: Hardware version 3.1 requires Functional Image version B.1.70 or later. There is no functional difference between version 1.70 and version B.1.70 with the exception of support for hardware version 3.1.
The download process impacts traffic through the line card, so make certain to schedule a maintenance window to avoid unnecessary interruption to customer traffic
Note:?Do not interrupt the download process. Wait for the process to complete before attempting any commands on the switch.
For additional information on Updating Line Card functional images consult Managing Your Cisco 15530 System found in the Cisco ONS 15530 Configuration Guide and Command Reference manual.
To determine the functional image version in a line card hardware controller, use the show hardware detail or show hardware linecard slot# commands in privileged exec mode.
The following example shows the functional image information in the controller for the line card in slot 4:
