Installing the Cisco uBR10012 Router

This chapter describes the procedures for installing the Cisco uBR10012 universal broadband router in an equipment rack. It also describes how to connect interface and power cables, the proper way to power on the system, and installation troubleshooting procedures.

Installation involves doing the following tasks in the following order:


Warning This equipment must be installed and maintained by service personnel as defined by AS/NZS 3260. Incorrectly connecting this equipment to a general-purpose outlet could be hazardous. The telecommunications lines must be disconnected 1) before unplugging the main power connector or 2) while the housing is open, or both. Statement 1043


Installation Methods

For stability and ease of use, the Cisco uBR10012 router chassis should be mounted in an equipment rack. The chassis can be mounted in a 19-inch (standard) equipment rack (either the 4-post equipment rack or the telco-type equipment rack) or in a 23-inch rack.


Note For 23-inch racks, optional mounting brackets must be ordered from third-party vendors.



Caution The Cisco uBR10012 router chassis should always be secured in the equipment rack for normal use and operations.

The rack-mount kit that is shipped with the Cisco uBR10012 router includes four mounting brackets for mounting the chassis in a standard 19-inch wide equipment rack (4-post equipment rack or telco-type). One set of mounting brackets is sufficient to properly secure the router chassis, but an additional set can also be ordered for mounting the chassis from the front and the back.


Note Although installing the chassis in a rack-mount is preferred for permanent installations, you can mount the router in an alternate location, such as on an equipment shelf or on a tabletop for testing or diagnostic purposes.


Preparing the Cisco uBR10012 Router for Rack-Mounting

The Cisco uBR10012 router chassis can be installed in a standard 19-inch equipment rack or telco rack, either front or rear mounted, and either flush or offset from the rack.

This section describes the following guidelines and steps that must be followed before rack-mounting the Cisco uBR10012 router:


Caution Before performing any of the steps in this section, be certain you have read and understood the guidelines given in Chapter2, “Preparing for Installation”

General Rack Installation Guidelines

When planning your rack installation, consider the following guidelines:

  • The Cisco uBR10012 router chassis requires a minimum of 18 rack units (31.5 in. or 80 cm) of vertical rack space. Measure the proposed rack location before mounting the chassis in the rack.
  • Before using a particular rack, check for obstructions (such as a power strip) that could impair rack-mount installation. If a power strip does impair a rack-mount installation, remove the power strip before installing the chassis, and then replace it after the chassis is installed.
  • Allow sufficient clearance around the rack for maintenance. If the rack is mobile, you can push it back near a wall or cabinet for normal operation and pull it out for maintenance (installing or moving line cards, connecting cables, or replacing or upgrading components). Otherwise, allow 19 in. (48.3 cm) of clearance to remove FRUs.
  • Maintain a minimum clearance of 3 in. (7.62 cm) on the front and back of the chassis for the cooling air inlet and exhaust ports, respectively. Avoid placing the chassis in an overly congested rack or directly next to another equipment rack; otherwise, the heated exhaust air from other equipment can enter the inlet air vents and cause an overtemperature condition inside the router.

Caution To prevent chassis overheating, never install a Cisco uBR10012 router in an enclosed rack or room that is not properly ventilated or air conditioned.

  • If also installing the optional AC-input power shelf, allow at last two rack units below the Cisco uBR10012 chassis for the power shelf installation. Install the AC-input power shelf after you have installed the Cisco uBR10012 chassis to avoid the possibility of accidentally crushing the power shelf during the router’s installation.
  • Cisco recommends installing an optional equipment shelf in the rack for the Cisco uBR10012 chassis because it simplifies installation, but this is not required.
  • Always install heavier equipment in the lower half of a rack to maintain a low center of gravity to prevent the rack from falling over. However, if you are also installing an AC-power shelf, leave enough space for the power shelf plus 2 rack units (RUs) underneath the Cisco uBR10012 chassis.
  • Ensure that cables from other equipment already installed in the rack do not impair access to the cards, or require you to disconnect cables unnecessarily to perform equipment maintenance or upgrades.
  • Install rack stabilizers (if available) before you mount the chassis.
  • Provide an adequate chassis ground (earth) connection for your router chassis.

In addition to the preceding guidelines, review the precautions for avoiding excessive temperature conditions in the “Temperature and Humidity Requirements” section.

Removing the Chassis Components Before Installation

The Cisco uBR10012 router is shipped with all ordered components already installed in the chassis. When fully configured, the Cisco uBR10012 chassis weighs approximately 230 lbs (104.3 kg).


Caution You must use a hydraulic lift or forklift to move a fully populated chassis.

If you have to move a fully populated chassis and you do not have a hydraulic lift or forklift available, you must first remove the following components from the chassis:

  • AC or DC power entry modules (PEMs)
  • Fan assembly module
  • Cable interface line cards
  • Network uplink line cards, Slot splitter, and half-height Gigabit Ethernet line cards

In a fully loaded chassis, these components weigh approximately 170 lbs (77.11 kg), removing the components allows the chassis to be moved ssfely using two people. Reinstall the components after the chassis has been moved and installed. Use the following procedures to remove these components.

Before You Begin

  • Make sure that you have an antistatic surface available for the components that you are removing from the chassis.
  • Make sure that you are wearing antistatic protection such as a wrist strap or heel strap and are properly grounded.

Removing the Half-Height Gigabit Ethernet Line Card and the Slot Splitters

This section describes how to properly remove HHGE line cards and the slot splitter from the chassis. This section includes the following tasks:

Removing a Half-Height Gigabit Ethernet Line Card

Use the following procedure to remove the HHGE line card from the slot splitter:


Step 1 Verify that you are properly grounded.

Step 2 Disconnect any network cables connected to the line card port.

Figure 3-1 Captive Screw Locations

 

 

Step 3 Use a screwdriver to loosen the top and bottom captive screws until they disengage and spring away from the face plate (Figure 3-1).

Step 4 Simultaneously pivot both ejector levers away from each other to disengage the line card from the backplane (Figure 3-2).

Step 5 Slide the line card out of the slot splitter and place it on an antistatic surface or in an antistatic bag.

Step 6 If you are not installing a replacement line card, install a blank faceplate in the slot.

Figure 3-2 Opening the Ejector Levers

 


Caution Do not operate the system unless all slots contain a line card or a blank faceplate. Always install a full-slot blank faceplate into an empty slot. Half-height blank faceplates do not have air dams, and the empty slot will rob cooling air from the other slots. A slot splitter with one half-height line card and one blank faceplate is allowed.


Warning Blank faceplates and cover panels serve three important functions: they prevent exposure to hazardous voltages and currents inside the chassis; they contain electromagnetic interference (EMI) that might disrupt other equipment; and they direct the flow of cooling air through the chassis. Do not operate the system unless all cards, faceplates, front covers, and rear covers are in place.
Statement 1029



 

Removing the Slot Splitter

Use the following procedure to remove a slot splitter from the chassis:


Step 1 Attach an antistatic wrist strap to your wrist and to the ESD socket on the chassis, or to a bare metal surface on the chassis or frame).

Step 2 Remove any line cards from the splitter, see the “Removing a Half-Height Gigabit Ethernet Line Card” section.

The slot splitter does not have ejector levers to disengage cards from the backplane, so you must remove any line cards before you remove the splitter.

Step 3 Loosen the top and bottom captive screws on the slot splitter (Figure 3-3).

Figure 3-3 Captive Screw Locations

 

 

Step 4 Slide the splitter out of the slot (Figure 3-4).

Step 5 If you are not installing a replacement splitter or a line card, install a full-slot blank faceplate in the slot.

Figure 3-4 Removing the Slot Splitter

 


 

Attaching the Mounting Brackets

The Cisco uBR10012 router is shipped with four mounting brackets that can be attached to either the front or rear of the chassis, depending on your mounting preferences. The brackets can be mounted either flush with the edge of the chassis or set back to allow the chassis to be offset mounted in the rack.

Figure 3-5 shows the mounting brackets shipped with the Cisco uBR10012 chassis for use with a standard 19-inch equipment or telco rack:

Figure 3-5 Mounting Brackets for the Cisco uBR10012 Router

 


Note The four mounting brackets shipped with the Cisco uBR10012 router are for a standard 19-inch equipment rack or telco rack. Optional mounting brackets are orderable separately from third-party vendors to install the chassis in a 23-inch rack.


Use the following procedure to attach the mounting brackets to the chassis.


Step 1 Determine whether you will be mounting the chassis with the front or rear facing forwards.

Step 2 Determine whether you will flush-mount or offset-mount the chassis. Typically, flush-mounting is used for most equipment racks except for telco racks that require offset-mounting. If either style can be used, choose the one that is most convenient for your site.

Step 3 Attach two mounting brackets to each side of the chassis in the appropriate locations. The large mounting bracket is attached to the top of the chassis, and the smaller bracket is attached to the bottom of the chassis.

Attach the brackets as shown in the following figures, using the screws that are supplied with the brackets:

  • Figure 3-6 shows how to attach the brackets to flush-mount the chassis with the front forwards.
  • Figure 3-7 shows how to attach the brackets to flush-mount the chassis with the rear forwards.
  • Figure 3-8 shows how to attach the brackets to offset-mount the chassis with the front forwards.

Installing the Cisco uBR10012 Chassis in the Rack

When you are installing the chassis in a rack, please be aware of the following issues.

  • AC power shelf installation precautions
  • Loaded and unloaded chassis weight

Caution If you are using the optional AC-input power shelf, do not install the shelf until after you have installed the Cisco uBR10012 chassis to avoid the possibility of crushing the shelf during the router’s installation.

For more information about installing the power shelf, see 2400W AC-Input Power Shelf for the Cisco uBR10012 Universal at the following URL:
http://www.cisco.com/en/US/docs/cable/cmts/ubr10012/installation/field_replaceable_units/ub10acsh.html


Caution A fully populated chassis weighs approximately 230 lbs (104.3 kg) and should be lifted only with a forklift or hydraulic lift. A depopulated chassis weighs approximately 55 lbs(24.95 kg) and should be lifted by two people. When handling the chassis, always follow proper lifting practices, as outlined in the “Chassis-Lifting Guidelines” section


Warning Two people are required to lift the chassis. Grasp the chassis underneath the lower edge and lift with both hands. To prevent injury, keep your back straight and lift with your legs, not your back. Statement 210



Warning At least three people are required to mount the shelf in the equipment rack: two people are needed to hold the shelf in place while a third person tightens the mounting screws. Statement 336



Step 1 Verify that you have removed the fan assembly module, DC PEMs, cable interface line cards, and network uplink line cards before attempting to move the chassis (see “Removing the Chassis Components Before Installation” section).


Caution Do not attempt to lift even a depopulated chassis by yourself. Have at least two people to lift the chassis. Three people might be needed to position the chassis into a rack, depending on whether you are using an equipment shelf and on how high you are mounting it.

If you have to lift the chassis to a higher location, have a third person present who can lift the middle of the chassis as the other two people lift it straight up.

Step 2 With each person standing on a side of the chassis, bend straight down at the knees, and grab one of the handles on the side of the chassis.

Step 3 Carefully lift the chassis straight up and walk with slow, deliberate steps to your destination.


Caution To prevent injury, keep your back straight and lift with your legs, not your back.

Step 4 When you reach your destination, bend at the knees to lower the chassis to the ground.

Step 5 Lift the chassis up to the height that it will be positioned in the rack.

Step 6 Maneuver the chassis into position in the rack.

Step 7 Align the mounting bracket holes with the rack post holes (Figure 3-13) and attach the chassis to the rack with the appropriate-sized screws (performed by the third person unless the chassis is resting on a shelf).

Step 8 Go to the Connecting the Chassis to Ground section to continue the installation.


Warning This equipment must be grounded. Never defeat the ground conductor or operate the equipment in the absence of a suitably installed ground conductor. Contact the appropriate electrical inspection authority or an electrician if you are uncertain that suitable grounding is available. Statement 1024



Note Figure 3-13 shows the chassis flush-mounted at the rear. The procedure is identical for the other mounting methods. This figure also shows two sets of mounting brackets being used, one set at the front and one set at the rear of the chassis. Only one set of brackets is necessary to support the chassis.

Installing the Line Cards and Uplink Cards

After the chassis has been firmly attached to the rack, reinstall the cards in the chassis (also see Removing and Replacing a Cable Interface Line Card for details).


Caution The Cisco uBR10012 router supports only the Cisco uBR10-LCP2-MC28C cable interface line card or Cisco uBR10-LCP2-MC16x cable interface line card bundles. Do not install the Cisco uBR10-LCP2 adapter card in the Cisco uBR10012 chassis without either the Cisco MC16x or the Cisco MC28C installed in the adapter card.

Also, do not attempt to remove the Cisco MC28C card or the Cisco MC16x card from their carriers (adapter cards) while the they are installed in the chassis. See the “Removing and Replacing a Cable Interface Line Card” section for information on this procedure.


Step 1 Grasp the faceplate of the first line card with one hand and place your other hand under the card carrier (to support the weight of the card) and position the card in front of the appropriate card cage slot.

Step 2 Carefully align the upper and lower edges of the line card with the upper and lower guides in the chassis, and slide the cable interface line card into the slot until you can feel it begin to seat in the backplane connectors (Figure 3-28).

Step 3 Simultaneously pivot both ejector levers toward each other (until they are parallel to the faceplate) to firmly seat the card in the backplane (Figure 3-29).

Step 4 Finger tighten the captive screws to secure the card in the chassis.


Caution Do not tighten the captive screws until after you insert all the additional cards. Tightening the captive screws before all the line cards are installed, can cause the installation slot for the last line card to be restricted and make it difficult to install the card.

Step 5 Repeat Step 1through Step 4 for each cable interface line card and network uplink card.

Step 6 After all the line cards and network uplink cards are inserted, tighten the captive screws. (Torque 5 to 7 in-lbs.)


Tip Tighten line card 1, then tighten line card 8, tighten line card 2 then line card 7. Alternate back and forth between the line cards until all of them are secure in the chassis.



Tip These screws prevent accidental removal and provide proper grounding for electromagnetic interference (EMI) shielding.

Installing the Slot Splitter and Half-Height Gigabit Ethernet Line Card

This section describes how to install the line card in the Cisco uBR10012 router. This section includes the following tasks:


Caution You must use slot 3 or slot 4 when installing the slot splitter and HHGE line card in the Cisco uBR10012 router, using slot 1 or slot 2 will cause the router to shut down those slots.


Caution Do not install two half-height blank faceplates into the same slot in the slot splitter. Instead, install a full-slot blank faceplate into the slot. The half-height blank faceplates do not have air dams, and the empty slot will rob cooling air from the other slots. A slot splitter with one half-height line card and one blank faceplate is allowed.


Caution Do not install a line card into the slot splitter before installing the splitter into the chassis. The slot splitter does not have ejector levers that allow you to seat the line card in the backplane.

Installing the Slot Splitter

You must install the half-height line card into a slot that contains a slot splitter, which can hold two half-height line cards. If both slots of the slot splitter are not used, then you must install a blank faceplate in the empty slot.

Follow these steps to install a slot splitter into slot 3 or slot 4 (Figure 3-30) of the Cisco uBR10012 chassis.


Step 1 Attach an antistatic wrist strap to your wrist and to an ESD socket on the chassis, or to a bare metal surface on the chassis or frame.

Step 2 Grasp the front of the slot splitter with one hand and place your other hand under the splitter. Position the splitter in front of the card cage slot.

Step 3 Carefully align the upper and lower edges of the slot splitter with the upper and lower guides in the chassis, and slide the splitter into the slot until the front is flush with the chassis.


Note The slot splitter shown in Figure 3-31 has one open slot (top) and one slot with a slot cover (bottom)


Secure the slot splitter to the chassis by tightening the top and bottom captive screws (Figure 3-32).

Figure 3-30 HHGE Line Card Locations

 

Figure 3-31 Inserting the Slot Splitter

 

Figure 3-32 Captive Screw Locations

 

 


Warning Blank faceplates and cover panels serve three important functions: they prevent exposure to hazardous voltages and currents inside the chassis; they contain electromagnetic interference (EMI) that might disrupt other equipment; and they direct the flow of cooling air through the chassis. Do not operate the system unless all cards, faceplates, front covers, and rear covers are in place.
Statement 1029



 

Installing the Half-Height Gigabit Ethernet Line Card

Use the following procedure to install a HHGE line card into an installed slot splitter. See the “Installing the Slot Splitter” section to install the slot splitter.

If you are replacing a line card, see the “Removing a Half-Height Gigabit Ethernet Line Card” section before you begin this procedure.


Step 1 Attach an antistatic wrist strap to your wrist and to an ESD socket on the chassis, or to a bare metal surface on the chassis or frame.

Figure 3-33 Inserting the Line Card

 

Step 2 Grasp the faceplate of the line card with one hand and place your other hand under the card carrier (to support the weight of the card). Position the card in front of the slot splitter.

Step 3 Carefully align the upper and lower edges of the line card with the upper and lower guides in the slot splitter, and slide the line card about half-way into the splitter.

Step 4 Be sure the ejectors are in the open position (as shown) and continue to push the line card into the splitter until you can feel it begin to seat in the backplane connectors.

Step 5 Verify that the captive screws are properly aligned with the captive screw holes in the splitter. If the captive screws are not properly aligned, the card will not seat properly in the backplane.

Step 6 Simultaneously pivot both ejector levers toward each other (until they are parallel to the faceplate) to firmly seat the card in the backplane (Figure 3-34).

The line card cycles through its power-on self-test. The FAIL LED lights during portions of the POST (Power-On Self Test), but remains off after POST on a properly working line card. If the FAIL LED remains on, go to the “Troubleshooting the HHGE Installation” section.

Figure 3-34 Closing the Ejector Levers

 

Figure 3-35 Captive Screw Locations

 

Step 7 Secure the line card in the slot splitter by tightening the top and bottom captive screws (Figure 3-35).


Caution To ensure that there is adequate space for additional line cards, always tighten the captive screws on each newly installed line card before you insert any additional line cards. These screws prevent accidental removal and provide proper grounding for electromagnetic interference (EMI) shielding.


 

Connecting the Console Port and Auxiliary Port

The PRE module on the Cisco uBR10012 router has two asynchronous serial (EIA/TIA-232) RJ-45 ports that provide connections for a console (an ASCII terminal or PC running terminal emulation software) and modem for remote access.

Recommended Tools and Supplies

The Cisco uBR10012 router arrives with a console and auxiliary cable kit, which contains the cable and adapters you need for the most common connections to these devices.

Table 3-6 lists the tools and supplies that you need to connect the Console and auxiliary ports.

Note A crossover cable reverses pin connections from one end to the other. In other words, it connects pin 1 (at one end) to pin 8 (at the other end), pin 2 to pin 7, pin 3 to pin 6, and so on. You can identify a crossover cable by comparing the two modular ends of the cable. Hold the cable ends in your hand, side-by-side, with the tabs at the back. Ensure that the wire connected to the outside (left) pin of the left plug (pin 1) is the same color as the wire connected to the outside (right) pin of the right plug (pin 8).

Also see “How to Identify an RJ-45 Crossover Cable” section.


Use the following procedures to connect to the console and auxiliary ports on a PRE module.


Note For more information about the console port and auxiliary port connectors, see the “Console and Auxiliary Port Cables and Pinouts” section.


Connecting to the Console Port

The console port provides local administrative access to the router and its command-line interface (CLI).


Note Each PRE module must have a console port connection (typically to a terminal server) when running a redundant configuration in the chassis.



Step 1 Connect one end of the RJ-45 crossover cable to the serial RJ-45 port (labelled CONSOLE) on the PRE module (Figure 3-36).

Figure 3-36 Console Port Connection on the PRE Module

 

Step 2 Run the other end of the crossover cable through the square hole at the left front side of the chassis, and connect it to the RJ-45-to-DB-9 adapter (see Figure 3-37):

Step 3 Connect the adapter to the appropriate serial port on the PC or terminal to complete the console port cable connection.

Step 4 Power on the PC or terminal.

Step 5 Configure the PC terminal emulation software or the terminal for the following default settings:

  • 9600 baud
  • 8 data bits
  • No parity generation or checking
  • 1 stop bit
  • No flow control

Step 6 If also connecting a modem to the auxiliary port, go to the next section, “Connecting to the Auxiliary Port.” Otherwise, go to the “Connecting Network Management Cables” section to continue the installation.


 

Connecting to the Auxiliary Port

The auxiliary port provides a connection for a modem to allow remote access to the router and its command-line interface (CLI).


Step 1 Connect one end of the RJ-45 crossover cable to the serial RJ-45 port (labelled AUX) on the PRE module (Figure 3-38).

Figure 3-38 Auxiliary Port Connection on the PRE Module

 

Step 2 Run the other end of the crossover cable through the square hole at the left front side of the chassis, and connect it to the RJ-45-to-DB-25 adapter.

Step 3 Connect the adapter to the serial port on the modem to complete the auxiliary port cable connection.

Step 4 Power on the modem.

Step 5 Make sure that the modem and auxiliary port on the router are configured for the same transmission speed (38.4 Kbps and 56 Kbps are typical). Configure the modem for auto-answer and for hardware flow control using the Data Carrier Detect (DCD) and Data Terminal Ready (DTR) signals.

Step 6 Go to the “Connecting Network Management Cables” section to continue the installation.


 

Connecting Network Management Cables

The Cisco uBR10012 router has connections to both the internal Ethernet management network and the external data network. The internal Ethernet management network connections are made through an Ethernet port on the front panel of the PRE module.These connections are described in the Ethernet Network Management Cable Connections.

Keep the following guidelines in mind when connecting external cables to the Cisco uBR10012 router:

  • To reduce the chance of interference, avoid crossing power lines with any interface cables.
  • Verify all cabling limitations (particularly distance) before powering on the system.

Ethernet Network Management Cable Connections

The PRE module provides an Ethernet port to a LAN for a 10Base-T or 100Base-T connection for network management. Use the following procedures to connect the Cisco uBR10012 router to an Ethernet network.


Note Each PRE module must have an Ethernet port connection (typically to the same Ethernet hub) if you are running a redundant configuration in the chassis. However, only the active PRE module has an active Ethernet connection to the network.


Connecting to a 10Base-T Ethernet Network

To make a 10Base-T Ethernet LAN connection, you need the following additional equipment (not included):

  • An Ethernet hub (such as a Cisco Micro Hub)
  • An Ethernet cable that meets the following specifications:

RJ-45 (male) to RJ-45 (male) straight-through cable

100-ohm category 3, 4, or 5, no longer than 328 feet (100 meters)

You can identify a straight-through Ethernet cable either by using a cable tester or by making a visual inspection. To make a visual inspection, hold the two ends of a cable side by side, with the tab for each at the back.

  • The wire connected to the left-most pin (pin 1) on one connector should be the same color as the wire connected to the left-most pin on the other connector.
  • The same rule applies to pins 2 through 8 on each connector. The color of the wire attached to a pin on one connector should match the color of the wire attached to the corresponding pin on the other connector.

Follow these steps to connect the PRE to a 10Base-T Ethernet LAN.


Step 1 Connect one end of the Ethernet cable to the RJ-45 port on the primary PRE, labeled Ethernet (see Figure 3-39).

Step 2 Run the other end of the Ethernet cable through the square hole at the left front side of the chassis, and connect this end of the cable to any unoccupied port on the Ethernet hub.


Tip When power is applied to the chassis, check the LNK (Link) LED on the PRE faceplate port next to the Ethernet port. This LED lights (green) if the PRE is correctly connected to the 10Base-T Ethernet LAN.

  • The same rule applies to pins 2 through 8 on each connector. The color of the wire attached to a pin on one connector should match the color of the wire attached to the corresponding pin on the other connector.

Caution If the Cisco uBR10012 router is used in an environment in which lightning-induced transients are likely to couple to the signal lines, use of shielded interconnection cables for the 100Base-T ports is highly recommended. In addition, use of shielded interconnection cables for the 100Base-T ports is required to meet Telcordia (formerly Bellcore) GR1089 CORE Section 4.5.9 and ETSI Section 5.2.2.2 (intrabuilding lightning surge).

The RJ-45 port on the PRE is configurable for 100-Mbps full-duplex or half-duplex operation (half-duplex is the default) and supports IEEE 802.3, Ethernet, and IEEE 802.3u interfaces compliant with 100Base-T specifications.

Follow these steps to connect the PRE to a 100Base-T Ethernet LAN.


Step 1 Connect one end of the Ethernet cable to the RJ-45 port on the primary PRE, labeled Ethernet (Figure 3-40).

Step 2 Run the cable up and through the cable management bracket and connect the other end of the Ethernet cable to any unoccupied port on the Ethernet hub.


Tip When power is applied to the chassis, check the LNK (Link) LED on the PRE faceplate port next to the Ethernet port. This LED lights (green) if the PRE is correctly connected to the 100Base-T Ethernet LAN.

Note If you have completed all cable connections, go to the “Replacing the Front Cover” section to continue the installation. If you are using Gigabit Ethernet line cards, go to “Connecting a Single-Port Gigabit Ethernet Line Card” section.


Connecting a Single-Port Gigabit Ethernet Line Card

The single-port Gigabit Ethernet (GE) line card provides a trunk uplink running at 1 Gbps in full duplex mode to devices such as content servers and Web caches. The port uses a Gigabit Interface Converter (GBIC) that supports Gigabit Ethernet rates on a variety of Gigabit Ethernet interface types (SX, LX/LH, ZX). For a list of qualified GBICs and cable lengths, see Table 1-9 .

Use the following procedure to install a GBIC and then connect a fiber cable to the GBIC.


Note If a GBIC is already installed in the GE line card, begin this procedure at Step 2.



Step 1 Review the warnings at the start of the network uplink section.

Step 2 Insert the GBIC into the GE line card port until the tabs lock into place (Figure 3-41).

Figure 3-41 Inserting the GBIC

 


Note The GBIC is “keyed” and can only be fully inserted one way. If you can only insert the GBIC one quarter of the way into the port, remove it, turn it over, and reinsert it into the port.


Step 3 Remove the protective plug from the GBIC by pulling it off.


Caution Make sure your fiber optic connectors are clean and debris free. Refer to Inspection and Cleaning Procedures for Fiber-Optic Connections at the following URL:

http://www.cisco.com/en/US/tech/tk482/tk876/technologies_white_paper09186a0080254eba.shtml

Step 4 Attach the fiber optic cable to the GBIC port (Figure 3-42).

Basic Configuration Using the Setup Facility

The first time you power on a Cisco uBR10012 router, the setup facility starts. You can also initiate the facility by running the setup command in privileged EXEC mode. This facility helps you enhance a default configuration that already exists on the Cisco uBR10012 router. The setup facility uses a question and answer sequence called the System Configuration Dialog to walk you through configuring the router.

You do not have to configure the interfaces immediately; however, you cannot enable the interfaces or connect them to any networks until you have configured them.


Tip Basic configuration setup is often used as a quick way to achieve network connectivity, allowing you to retrieve a configuration file from a TFTP server.


System Configuration Dialog

Use the System Configuration Dialog to help you perform a basic configuration. Proceed through the dialog by answering questions and then pressing the Enter key. In most cases, you can get additional information by entering a question mark (?). Throughout the dialog, default values are shown in square brackets [ ].


Tip If you have experience using Cisco routers, consider configuring the router by using the procedure described in the “Basic Configuration in Global Configuration Mode” section.


To cancel the configuration dialog, press Ctrl-C , or you can let the dialog help you perform one of two configuration types:

  • Basic configuration setup configures only enough connectivity for management of the system.
  • Extended setup asks you to configure each interface and is not appropriate for configuring the Cisco uBR10012 router. For more information, see the Cisco IOS Configuration Fundamentals Configuration Guide.

You can run the setup facility any time you are at the enable prompt (#) by entering the command setup .

Configuring the System Using System Configuration Dialog

Use the following procedure to perform a basic configuration using the System Configuration Dialog:


Step 1 The dialog starts by asking if you want to continue with the configuration dialog. Enter Yes. To return to the enable prompt, enter No.

--- System Configuration Dialog ---
Continue with configuration dialog? [yes/no]: yes
 

Step 2 Enter Yes to perform a basic management setup. Enter No to perform an extended configuration setup.

Would you like to enter basic management setup? [yes/no]: yes
 

Step 3 Specify a hostname. The hostname becomes part of the IOS prompt.

Enter host name [Router]: my-router
 

Step 4 Specify a secret password. It appears in encrypted form in the configuration file.

Enter enable secret: my_secret
 

Step 5 Specify the enable password. It is used if you did not assign a secret one.

Enter enable password: my_password
 

Step 6 Specify the password to use for telnet sessions.

Enter virtual terminal password: my_vt
 

Step 7 At the configure system management prompt, enter No.

Configure System Management? [yes/no]: no
 

Step 8 If you want to access the router using SNMP, enter Yes at the prompt:

Configure SNMP Network Management? [yes]: yes
 

Step 9 Specify an SNMP community string.

Community string [public]: public
 


 

Setting Up the Interface

After you respond to the SNMP questions, the setup script lists the interfaces. The following table lists typical interfaces found on a Cisco uBR10012 router.

Tip Interfaces that are not okay (NO) do not have a valid configuration.


To set up an interface on the Cisco uBR10012 router:


Step 1 Enter the interface for the FastEthernet interface to achieve network connectivity.

Enter interface name used to connect to the management network from the above interface summary: FastEthernet0/0/0
 

Step 2 Accept the default value for the type of connector. RJ-45 is the only connector that can be used on the Cisco uBR10012 router Ethernet port.

Configuring interface FastEthernet0/0/0:
Use the 100 Base-TX (RJ-45) connector? [yes]: yes
 

Step 3 Configure both the Cisco uBR10012 router and the remote device to use the same mode.

Operate in full-duplex mode? [no]: no
 

Step 4 Enter the IP address to achieve network connectivity.

Configure IP on this interface? [yes]: yes

Step 5 Specify the IP address.

IP address for this interface: 172.27.48.209
 

Step 6 Enter the subnet mask for the IP address.

Subnet mask for this interface [255.255.0.0]: 255.255.0.0
 

The system displays the information you entered as well as several default commands, such as the no shutdown command. For example:

The following configuration command script was created:
hostname c10012
enable secret 5 $$1$uror$EFU0hKOBQXhk975qKFZlL0
enable password <xxx>
line vty 0 4
password <xxx>
no snmp-server
!
no ip routing
!
interface FastEthernet0/0/0
no shutdown
media-type 100BaseX
half-duplex
ip address 172.27.48.209 255.255.0.0
!
end
 

Step 7 Exit the setup script without saving, start the setup script, or save the configuration file:

[0] Go to the IOS command prompt without saving this config.
[1] Return back to the setup without saving this config.
[2] Save this configuration to nvram and exit.
 
Enter your selection [2]:
 

Step 8 Enter global configuration mode after you complete the configuration, and enable ip routing by entering the ip routing command:

router(config)#ip routing


 

Basic Configuration in Global Configuration Mode

The following command sequence allows you to perform a configuration similar to that generated by the setup command.

Router>configure terminal
Router(config) #hostname c10012
Router(config) #enable secret <my_router>
Router(config) #enable password <my_rtr>
Router(config) #snmp-server community public
Router(config) #ip routing
Router(config) #interface FastEthernet0/0/0
Router(config-if) #no shutdown
Router(config-if) #media-type 100BaseX
Router(config-if) #half-duplex
Router(config-if) #ip address 192 255.255.0.0
Router #copy running-config startup-config

You can now configure the line cards. For specific information on system and interface configuration, refer to the Cisco uBR10012Universal Broadband Router Software Configuration Guide at the following URL:

http://www.cisco.com/en/US/docs/cable/cmts/ubr10012/configuration/guide/scg.html

Formatting PC Media Cards

The PC media card that shipped with your PRE contains the default Cisco IOS image for booting your router. This section explains how to format a PC media card, modify its contents, or resolve a problem with the card.


Caution The formatting procedure erases all information on the PC media card.


Note The Cisco uBR10012 router uses PC media cards that are a minimum of 64 MB in size.


Flash memory ATA disks and Flash memory cards use similar commands. The primary syntax change is that disk0: or disk1: refers to Flash memory ATA disks while slot0: or slot1: refers to Flash memory cards.

Use the following procedure to format a Flash memory disk:


Step 1 Ensure there is a PC media card in slot 0 or slot 1 of the PRE.

Step 2 Enter the format disk n : command at the privileged EXEC mode prompt to format the card. The example shows the display after you enter the format disk0: command:

Router# format disk0:
All sectors will be erased, proceed? [confirm]
Enter volume id (up to 30 characters): MyNewdisk
Formatting sector 1
Format device slot0 completed

The PC media card is ready for use.
