This document describes how to bring a new core SPE 310 card online to
support applications such as the Cisco CallManager publisher or subscriber, or
how to add Cisco Unity voice mail on an ICS 7750. In this scenario, a
functioning SPE 310 that runs the System Manager in the ICS 7750 chassis
already exists, and you might have one or more additional SPEs devoted to
running applications. The goal is to add and set up another SPE on which you
can install applications.
This document applies primarily to the SPE card in the Cisco ICS 7750
with software version 2.1.x or later. This document does not detail any of the
tasks required for proper administration or use of these components:
You should have a basic understanding of these components. A basic
understanding of the ICS 7750 hardware is also helpful. For more information on
ICS 7750 hardware, refer to the
ICS 7750 Hardware Installation Guide and
ICS 7750 Administration and Troubleshooting Guide.

Each ICS 7750 must contain exactly one SPE 310 which is the SPE that
runs ICS System Manager. All other SPE 310s in the chassis run ICS Core
software which contains only a core set of system management services,
basically enough for the System Manager SPE to administer/manage these SPEs.
These cards can run Cisco CallManager or Cisco Unity applications or other
This procedure applies to the installation of a new, additional SPE 310
that runs applications in an ICS 7750 chassis. It does not apply to the
replacement of an existing SPE for running applications or the replacement of
the SPE that runs the System Manager.
