Electrical Equipment Guidelines

Follow these basic guidelines when working with any electrical equipment:

Before beginning any procedures requiring access to the chassis interior, locate the emergency power-off switch for the room in which you are working.

Disconnect all power and external cables before moving a chassis; Do not work alone when potentially hazardous conditions exist.

Never assume that power has been disconnected from a circuit; always check.

Do not perform any action that creates a potential hazard to people or makes the equipment unsafe; carefully examine your work area for possible hazards such as moist floors, ungrounded power extension cables, and missing safety grounds.

Telephone Wiring Guidelines

Use the following guidelines when working with any equipment that is connected to telephone wiring or to other network cabling:

Never install telephone wiring during a lightning storm.

Never install telephone jacks in wet locations unless the jack is specifically designed for wet locations.

Never touch uninsulated telephone wires or terminals unless the telephone line has been disconnected at the network interface.

Use caution when installing or modifying telephone lines.

Preventing Electrostatic Discharge Damage

Electrostatic discharge (ESD) damage, which can occur when electronic cards or components are improperly handled, results in complete or intermittent failures. Port adapters and processor modules consist of printed circuit boards that are fixed in metal carriers. Electromagnetic interference (EMI) shielding and connectors are integral components of the carrier. Although the metal carrier helps to protect the board from ESD, use a preventive antistatic strap during handling.

Following are guidelines for preventing ESD damage:

Always use an ESD wrist or ankle strap and ensure that it makes good skin contact.

Connect the equipment end of the strap to an unfinished chassis surface.

When installing a component, use any available ejector levers or captive installation screws to properly seat the bus connectors in the backplane or midplane. These devices prevent accidental removal, provide proper grounding for the system, and help to ensure that bus connectors are properly seated.

When removing a component, use any available ejector levers or captive installation screws to release the bus connectors from the backplane or midplane.

Handle carriers by available handles or edges only; avoid touching the printed circuit boards or connectors.

Place a removed component board-side-up on an antistatic surface or in a static shielding container. If you plan to return the component to the factory, immediately place it in a static shielding container.

Avoid contact between the printed circuit boards and clothing. The wrist strap only protects components from ESD voltages on the body; ESD voltages on clothing can still cause damage.

Never attempt to remove the printed circuit board from the metal carrier.


Caution   
For safety, periodically check the resistance value of the antistatic strap. The measurement should be between 1 and 10 megohms.

What Is the 100VG Port Adapter?

This section contains information specific to the 100VG port adapter and its use with Cisco 7000 series, Cisco 7200 series, and Cisco 7500 series routers.

The following sections discuss information specific to the 100VG port adapter:

100VG Port Adapter LEDs, page 8

100VG Port Adapter Interface Receptacles, Cables, and Pinouts, page 9

Port Adapter Locations on the VIP2 and in the Cisco 7200 Series Router, page 9

Each 100VG port adapter provides a single interface ports, which is compatible with and specified by IEEE 802.12, to provide 100-Mbps interface over Category 5, unshielded twisted-pair (UTP) cable (with RJ-45 connectors), supporting 802.3 Ethernet packets. The 100VG port adapter operates at 120 Mbps with a 5B/6B coding scheme, which provides a data rate of 100 Mbps.


Note   The 100VG interfaces on a 100VG port adapter can be configured at 100 Mbps, half duplex for a maximum aggregate bandwidth of 100 Mbps per 100VG interface.


The 100VG port adapter is designed to conform to the following emissions standards: FCC Part 15 Class A, Cispr22 Class A, EN 55022 Class A, and VCCI Class 1.

The PA-100VG port adapter can be monitored with the IEEE 802.12 Interface MIB (DOT12-IF-MIB.my). (For information on accessing Cisco MIB files, refer to the Cisco MIB User Quick Reference.)

PA-100VG (see Figure 1) is used on the second-generation Versatile Interface Processors (VIP2s) for use with the Cisco 7500 series routers, and with Cisco 7000 series routers using the RSP7000. The 100VG port adapter can also be used in Cisco 7200 series routers. There are no chassis or port adapter slot restrictions for the 100VG port adapter. 100VG port adapters are available as spare parts (as PA-100VG=).

Figure 1 100VG Port Adapter, Front Panel View

100VG Port Adapter LEDs

The 100VG port adapter contains an enabled LED, standard on all port adapters, and two additional status LEDs for the port, called the link OK and activity LEDs, which function as follows:

LINK OK—This green LED indicates the link is operational.

ACTIVITY—This green LED indicates there is activity on the link.

After system initialization, the enabled LED goes on to indicate that the 100VG port adapter has been enabled for operation. When a port is operational and ready, its link OK LED goes on and remains on. When a port is active, its activity LED is on when a port on the 100VG port adapter is receiving a carrier signal from the network and normally off. (The LEDs are shown in Figure 2.)

Figure 2 LEDs on the 100VG Port Adapter, Partial Front-Panel View

The following conditions must be met before the enabled LED goes on:

The 100VG port adapter is correctly connected and receiving power

The VIP2 or Cisco 7200 series router contains a valid microcode version that has been downloaded successfully

The bus recognizes the VIP2 attached to the backplane, or port adapter attached to the midplane

100VG Port Adapter Interface Receptacles, Cables, and Pinouts

The single interface receptacle on the 100VG port adapter is an RJ-45. Each connection supports IEEE 802.12 interfaces. The RJ-45 connection does not require an external transceiver and can use Category 3 and Category 5 unshielded twisted-pair (UTP) cable with RJ-45 terminations. (Cisco Systems does not supply Category 3 and Category 5, UTP RJ-45 cables; these cables are available from commercial cable vendors.)

Figure 3 shows the RJ-45 cable connectors. Table 1 lists the pinout and signal descriptions for the RJ-45 connector.

Figure 3 100VG AnyLAN RJ-45 Connections, Receptacle and Plug


Warning   

The ports labeled "Ethernet," "10BaseT," "Token Ring," "Console," and "AUX" are safety extra-low voltage (SELV) circuits. SELV circuits should only be connected to other SELV circuits. Because the BRI circuits are treated like telephone-network voltage, avoid connecting the SELV circuit to the telephone network voltage (TNV) circuits.

Caution   
Port adapters have a handle attached, but this handle is not shown to allow a full view of detail on each port adapter's faceplate.

Installing or Replacing a Port Adapter on a VIP2

This section provides the standard procedures for installing or replacing a port adapter on the VIP2.

Depending on the circumstances, you might need to install a new port adapter on a VIP2 motherboard or replace a failed port adapter in the field. In either case, you need a number 1 Phillips screwdriver, an antistatic mat onto which you can place the removed interface processor, and an antistatic container into which you can place a failed port adapter for shipment back to the factory.


Caution   
To prevent system problems, do not remove port adapters from the VIP2 motherboard, or attempt to install other port adapters on the VIP2 motherboard while the system is operating. To install or replace port adapters, first remove the VIP2 from its interface processor slot.


Note   Each port adapter circuit board is mounted to a metal carrier and is sensitive to ESD damage. Each port adapter has one Phillips-head screw that secures it to its port adapter slot. We strongly recommend that the following procedures be performed by a Cisco-certified service provider; however, this is not a requirement.

While the VIP2 supports online insertion and removal, individual port adapters do not. To replace port adapters, you must first remove the VIP2 from the chassis, then install or replace port adapters as required. If a blank port adapter is installed on the VIP2 in which you want to install a new port adapter, you must first remove the VIP2 from the chassis, then remove the blank port adapter.



Caution   
To prevent interface reconfiguration requirements, you should replace a port adapter with the same type of port adapter you removed, but this is not a requirement.

When only one port adapter is installed on a VIP2, a blank port adapter must fill the empty slot to allow the VIP2 and router chassis to conform to electromagnetic interference (EMI) emissions requirements, and so that air flows through the chassis properly. If you plan to install a new port adapter, you must first remove the blank port adapter.

Use the following standard procedure to remove and replace any type of port adapter on a VIP2:


Step 1 Attach an ESD-preventive wrist strap between you and an unfinished chassis surface.


Note   If you want to install a new port adapter on a VIP2 with a single port adapter, you must first remove the blank port adapter from the port adapter slot in which you want to install the new port adapter.


Step 2 For a new port adapter installation or a port adapter replacement, disconnect any interface cables from the ports on the front of the port adapter, although, this is not required. You can remove VIP2s with cables attached; however, we do not recommend it.

Step 3 Remove the VIP2 from the system. (Follow the steps in the section "Removing a VIP2" in the configuration note Second-Generation Versatile Interface Processor (VIP2) Installation and Configuration [Document Number 78-2658-xx], which shipped with your VIP2.)

Step 4 Place the removed VIP2 on an antistatic mat.

Step 5 Locate the screw at the rear of the port adapter (or blank port adapter) to be replaced. (See Figure 7.) This screw secures the port adapter (or blank port adapter) to its slot.

Figure 7 Location of Port Adapter Screw (Partial Port Adapter View)

Step 6 Remove the screw that secures the port adapter (or blank port adapter).

Step 7 With the screw removed, grasp the handle on the front of the port adapter (or blank port adapter) and carefully pull it out of its slot, away from the edge connector at the rear of the slot. (See Figure 8.)

Figure 8 Pulling a Port Adapter Out of a Slot (Partial Port Adapter View)

Step 8 If you removed a port adapter, place it in an antistatic container for safe storage or shipment back to the factory. If you removed a blank port adapter, no special handling is required; however, store the blank port adapter for potential future use.

Step 9 Remove the new port adapter from its antistatic container and position it at the opening of the slot. (See .)

Step 10 Carefully align the port adapter carrier between the upper and lower edges of the port adapter slot, as shown in .


Caution   
To prevent jamming the carrier between the upper and lower edges of the port adapter slot, and to assure that the edge connector at the rear of the port adapter mates with the connector at the rear of the port adapter slot, make certain that the leading edges of the carrier are between the upper and lower slot edges, as shown in the cutaway in .

Figure 9 Aligning a Port Adapter in a Port Adapter Slot

Step 11 Carefully slide the new port adapter into the port adapter slot (see ) until the connector on the port adapter is completely mated with the connector at the rear of the port adapter slot.

Figure 10 Port Adapter Installed in a Port Adapter Slot (Partial Port Adapter View)

Step 12 Replace the screw in the rear of the port adapter slot. (See Figure 7 for its location.) Do not overtighten this screw.

Step 13 Reinstall the VIP2 in the system. (Follow the steps in the section "Installing a VIP2" in the configuration note Second-Generation Versatile Interface Processor (VIP2) Installation and Configuration [Document Number 78-2658-xx], which shipped with your VIP2.)

Step 14 If disconnected, reconnect the interface cables to the port adapters.

This completes the procedure for installing a new port adapter or replacing a port adapter on a VIP2.

Attaching 100VG Port Adapter Interface Cables

RJ-45 cables are not available from Cisco Systems; they are available from outside commercial cable vendors.

Use the following procedure to connect RJ-45 cables to the 100VG port adapter:


Step 1 Attach the Category 5 UTP cable directly to the RJ-45 port on the 100VG port adapter. (See Figure 11.)


Warning   

The ports labeled "Ethernet," "10BASE-T," "Token Ring," "Console," and "AUX" are safety extra-low voltage (SELV) circuits. SELV circuits should only be connected to other SELV circuits. Because the BRI circuits are treated like telephone-network voltage, avoid connecting the SELV circuit to the telephone network voltage (TNV) circuits.


Figure 11 Connecting RJ-45 Cables (Horizontal Orientation—Shown without Handles)


Note   Port adapters have a handle attached, but this handle is not shown to allow a full view of detail on each port adapter's faceplate.


Step 2 Attach the network end of your RJ-45 cable to your 100VG hub or repeater or other external 100VG equipment.

Step 3 Repeat Steps 1 and 2 for each additional 100VG interface.

This completes the 100VG port adapter installation.

Configuring the 100VG AnyLAN Interfaces

If you installed a new 100VG port adapter or if you want to change the configuration of an existing interface, you must enter configuration mode using the configure command. If you replaced a 100VG port adapter that was previously configured, the system will recognize the new 100VG interfaces and bring them up in their existing configuration.

After you verify that the new 100VG port adapter is installed correctly (the enabled LED goes on), use the privileged-level configure command to configure the new interfaces. Be prepared with the information you will need, such as the following:

Protocols you plan to route on each new interface

Internet protocol (IP) addresses if you plan to configure the interfaces for IP routing

Whether the new interfaces will use bridging

For a summary of the configuration options available and instructions for configuring the 100VG AnyLAN interfaces on the 100VG port adapter, refer to the appropriate configuration publications listed in the section "If You Need More Information" on page 2.

The configure command requires privileged-level access to the EXEC command interpreter, which usually requires a password. Contact your system administrator if necessary to obtain EXEC-level access.


Note   The 100VG interfaces on a 100VG port adapter can be configured at 100 Mbps, half duplex for a maximum aggregate bandwidth of 100 Mbps per 100VG interface.


Determining Chassis Slot, Port Adapter, and 100VG AnyLAN Interface Port Numbers

The following section describes how to identify chassis slot, port adapter, and interface port numbers.


Note   Although the processor slots in the 7-slot Cisco 7000 and Cisco 7507 and 13-slot Cisco 7513 are vertically oriented and those in the 5-slot Cisco 7010 and Cisco 7505 are horizontally oriented, all models use the same method for slot and port numbering.


In the router, physical port addresses specify the actual physical location of each interface port on the router interface processor end. (See Figure 12.) This address is composed of a three-part number in the format chassis slot number/port adapter number/interface port number, as follows:

The first number identifies the chassis slot in which the 100VG-equipped VIP2 is installed (as shown in the example system in Figure 12).

The second number identifies the physical port adapter number on the VIP2, and is either 0 or 1.

The third number identifies the interface port on the 100VG port adapter, which is always numbered as interface 0.

Interface ports on the 100VG-equipped VIP2 maintain the same addresses regardless of whether other interface processors are installed or removed. However, when you move a VIP2 to a different slot, the first number in the address changes to reflect the new chassis slot number.

Figure 12 shows the port adapter slots and interface ports of a sample Cisco 7505 system. On a 100VG port adapter interface port numbers are always 0. For example, the 100VG AnyLAN interface port on a 100VG port adapter in the first port adapter slot in chassis slot 3, would be 3/0/0. (See Figure 12.) The 100VG port adapter in port adapter slot 1 would be numbered 3/1/0.


Note   If you remove the 100VG-equipped VIP2 from chassis slot 3 and install it in chassis slot 2, the addresses of those same ports become 2/0/0 through 2/1/1.


Figure 12 100VG Interface Port Number Example (Cisco 7505 Shown)

You can identify interface ports by physically checking the slot/port-adapter/interface port location on the back of the router or by using show commands to display information about a specific interface or all interfaces in the router.

Configuring an Interface

The following steps describe a basic configuration. Press the Return key after each step unless otherwise noted. At any time you can exit the privileged level and return to the user level by entering disable at the prompt as follows:

Router# disable

Router> 

Use the following procedure to perform a basic configuration:


Step 1 At the privileged-level prompt, enter configuration mode and specify that the console terminal will be the source of the configuration subcommands as follows:

Router# configure terminal
Enter configuration commands, one per line.  End with CNTL/Z.
Router(config)#

Step 2 At the prompt, specify the first interface to configure by entering the subcommand interface, followed by the type (vg) and slot/port adapter/interface (interface processor slot number/port adapter slot number/interface number).

The example that follows is for the interface on the first port adapter on a 100VG port adapter in interface processor slot 1:

Router(config)# interface vg 1/0/0

Step 3 If IP routing is enabled on the system, you can assign an IP address and subnet mask to the interface with the ip address configuration subcommand, as in the following example:

Router(config-if)# ip address 1.1.1.10 255.255.255.0 

Step 4 Add any additional configuration subcommands required to enable routing protocols and set the interface characteristics.

Step 5 Change the shutdown state to up and enable the interface as follows:

Router(config-if)# no shutdown

Step 6 Configure additional interfaces as required.

Step 7 When you have included all of the configuration subcommands to complete the configuration, press Ctrl-Z to exit configuration mode.

Step 8 Write the new configuration to nonvolatile memory as follows:

Router# copy running-config startup-config
[OK]
Router#

To check the interface configuration using show commands, proceed to the section "Checking the Configuration."

Checking the Configuration

This section provides information for checking your configuration. After configuring the new interface, use the show commands to display the status of the new interface or all interfaces, and use the ping command to check connectivity.

Using show Commands to Verify the New Interface Status

The following steps use show commands to verify that the new interfaces are configured and operating correctly.


Step 1 Display the system hardware configuration with the show version command to ensure that the list includes the new interfaces.

Step 2 Display all the current interface processors and their interfaces with the show controllers cbus command. Verify that the new 100VG port adapter appears in the correct slot.

Step 3 Specify one of the new interfaces with the show interfaces type slot/port adapter/interface command and verify that the first line of the display specifies the interface with the correct slot number. Also verify that the interface and line protocol are in the correct state: up or down.

Step 4 Display the protocols configured for the entire system and specific interfaces with the show protocols command. If necessary, return to configuration mode to add or remove protocol routing on the system or specific interfaces.

Step 5 Display the running configuration file with the show running-config command. Display the configuration stored in NVRAM using the show startup-config command. Verify that the configuration is accurate for the system and each interface.

If the interface is down and you configured it as up, or if the displays indicate that the hardware is not functioning properly, ensure that the network interface is properly connected and terminated. If you still have problems bringing the interface up, contact a service representative for assistance.

Using show Commands to Display Interface and System Information

To display information about a specific interface, use the show interfaces command with the interface type and port address in the format show interfaces type [slot/port adapter/interface].

Following is an example of how the show interfaces type [slot/port adapter/interface] command displays status information (including the chassis slot, port adapter slot, and port address) for an interface you specify. In this example, most of the status information for the interface is omitted, and the 100VG interface is in chassis slot 3, in port adapter slot 1. (Interfaces are administratively shut down until you enable them.)

Router# sh int vg 3/1/0
VG-AnyLAN3/1/0 is up, line protocol is up 
  Hardware is cyBus  VG-AnyLAN Interface, address is 0060.3e64.2468 (bia 
0060.3e64.2468)
  Internet address is 1.1.1.17/8
  MTU 1500 bytes, BW 100000 Kbit, DLY 100 usec, rely 255/255, load 1/255
  Encapsulation ARPA, loopback not set, keepalive set (10 sec)

(additional display text omitted)

With the show interfaces type [slot/port adapter/interface] command, use arguments such as the interface type (vg, and so forth) and the slot, port adapter, and port numbers (slot/port adapter/port) to display information about a specific 100VG AnyLAN interface.

The following example of the show interfaces vg slot/port adapter/interface command shows all of the information specific to the first 100VG AnyLAN interface port (interface port 0) in chassis slot 3, port adapter slot 1:

Router# sh int vg 3/1/0
VG-AnyLAN3/1/0 is up, line protocol is up 
  Hardware is cyBus  VG-AnyLAN Interface, address is 0060.3e64.2468 (bia 
0060.3e64.2468)
  Internet address is 10.1.1.17/8
  MTU 1500 bytes, BW 100000 Kbit, DLY 100 usec, rely 255/255, load 1/255

     0 vg invalid ipm  error, 0 vg symbol error
     0 vg skew error, 0 vg frame delimit error
     0 vg high priority packets, 0 vg high priority octects

Explanations of the 100VG-specific portions of the show interfaces display follow:

vg alignment error—occurs when a non-octect is received

vg balance error—occurs when a balanced symbol is received, but it is not the correct symbol

vg invalid ipm error—occurs when a packet is received with an invalid packet marker (IPM)

vg symbol error—occurs when a symbol is received, which was not decoded correctly

vg skew error—occurs when the skew between four pairs of twisted-pair wire exceeds the allowable skew

vg frame delimit error—occurs when a Start of Frame error is received or a False Start error occurs

vg high priority packets—shows the number of high-priority packets received

vg high priority octects—shows the number of high-priority octects received

For complete command descriptions and examples, refer to the publications listed in the section "If You Need More Information" on page 2.

The show version command displays the configuration of the system hardware (the number and type of each interface processor type installed), the software version, the names and sources of configuration files, and the boot images.

Following is an example of the show version command:

The show startup-config command displays the information from the configuration file used at system startup. Following is an example of partial output from the show startup-config command from a system with a 100VG port adapter installed and configured:

Router# sh startup-conf

(additional display text omitted)

Using the ping Command to Verify Network Connection

The packet internet groper (ping) command allows you to verify that an interface port is functioning properly and to check the path between a specific port and connected devices at various locations on the network. This section provides brief descriptions of the ping command. After you verify that the system and 100VG-equipped VIP2 have booted successfully and are operational, you can use this command to verify the status of interface ports. Refer to the publications listed in the section "If You Need More Information" on page 2, for detailed command descriptions and examples.

The ping command sends an echo request out to a remote device at an IP address that you specify. After sending a series of signals, the command waits a specified time for the remote device to echo the signals. Each returned signal is displayed as an exclamation point (!) on the console terminal; each signal that is not returned before the specified time-out is displayed as a period (.). A series of exclamation points (!!!!!) indicates a good connection; a series of periods (.....) or the messages [timed out] or [failed] indicate that the connection failed.

Following is an example of a successful ping command to a remote server with the address 1.1.1.10:

Router# ping 1.1.1.10 <Return>
Type escape sequence to abort.
Sending 5, 100-byte ICMP Echoes to 1.1.1.10, timeout is 2 seconds:
!!!!!
Success rate is 100 percent (5/5), round-trip min/avg/max = 1/15/64 ms
Router#

If the connection fails, verify that you have the correct IP address for the server and that the server is active (powered on); then repeat the ping command. For complete descriptions of interface subcommands and the configuration options available for 100VG-related interfaces, and which support 100VG functionality, refer to the publications listed in the section "If You Need More Information" on page 2.

Cisco 7200 Series and 100VG Port Adapters

The 100VG port adapters are used in the Cisco 7200 series routers and can be installed in any of the available port adapter slots. Figure 13 shows a 100VG port adapter installed in port adapter slot 3 of a Cisco 7206.

Figure 13 Cisco 7206 with a 100VG Port Adapter in Port Adapter Slot 3

Installing or Replacing a Port Adapter in Cisco 7200 Series Routers

This section provides the standard procedures for installing or replacing port adapters in a Cisco 7200 series router.

Depending on your circumstances, you might need to install a new port adapter in a Cisco 7200 series router or replace a failed port adapter in the field. In either case no tools are necessary; all port adapters available for the Cisco 7200 series connect directly to the router midplane and are locked into position by a port adapter lever. When removing and replacing a port adapter, you will need an antistatic mat onto which you can place a removed port adapter and an antistatic container into which you can place a failed port adapter for shipment back to the factory.


Note   The Cisco 7200 series routers support OIR; therefore, you do not have to power down the Cisco 7200 series routers when removing and replacing a port adapter.


When a port adapter slot is not in use, a blank port adapter must fill the empty slot to allow the router to conform to EMI emissions requirements and to allow proper air flow across the port adapters. If you plan to install a new port adapter in a slot that is not in use, you must first remove a blank port adapter.

Removing a Port Adapter

Use the following standard procedure to remove a port adapter from a Cisco 7200 series router:


Step 1 Attach an ESD-preventative wrist strap between you and an unfinished chassis surface.

Step 2 Place the port adapter lever for the desired port adapter slot in the unlocked position. The port adapter lever remains in the unlocked position. (Refer to .)

Figure 14 Placing the Port Adapter Lever in the Unlocked Position (Cisco 7206 Shown)

Step 3 Grasp the handle on the port adapter and pull the port adapter from the midplane, about halfway out of its slot. If you are removing a blank port adapter, pull the blank port adapter from the port adapter slot.


Note   As you disengage the port adapter from the router midplane, OIR administratively shuts down all active interfaces on the port adapter.


Step 4 With the port adapter halfway out of the slot, disconnect all cables from the port adapter.

Step 5 After disconnecting the cables, pull the port adapter from its port adapter slot.


Caution   
Always handle the port adapter by the carrier edges and handle; never touch the port adapter's components or connector pins. (Refer to .)

Figure 15 Handling a Port Adapter

Step 6 Place the port adapter on an antistatic surface with its components facing upward, or in a static shielding bag. If the port adapter will be returned to the factory, immediately place it in a static shielding bag.

This completes the procedure for removing a port adapter from a Cisco 7200 series router.

Replacing a Port Adapter

Use the following standard procedure to install a new port adapter in a Cisco 7200 series router:


Step 1 Attach an ESD-preventative wrist strap between you and an unfinished chassis surface.

Step 2 Use both hands to grasp the port adapter by its metal carrier edges and position the port adapter so that its components are downward. (Refer to Figure 15).

Step 3 Align the left and right edge of the port adapter metal carrier between the guides in the port adapter slot. (Refer to .)

Figure 16 Aligning the Port Adapter Metal Carrier Between the Slot Guides
(Cisco 7206 Shown)

Step 4 With the metal carrier aligned in the slot guides, gently slide the port adapter halfway into the slot.


Caution   
Do not slide the port adapter all the way into the slot until you have connected all required cables. Trying to do so will disrupt normal operation of the router.

Step 5 With the port adapter halfway in the slot, connect all required cables to the port adapter.

Step 6 After connecting all required port adapter cables, carefully slide the port adapter all the way into the slot until you feel the port adapter's connectors mate with the midplane.

Step 7 Move the port adapter lever to the locked position. Figure 17 shows the port adapter lever in the locked position.


Note   If the port adapter lever does not move to the locked position, the port adapter is not completely seated in the midplane. Carefully pull the port adapter halfway out of the slot, reinsert it, and move the port adapter lever to the locked position.


Figure 17 Placing the Port Adapter Lever in the Locked Position (Cisco 7206 Shown)

This completes the procedure for installing a new port adapter in a Cisco 7200 series router.

Attaching 100VG Port Adapter Interface Cables

100VG RJ-45 cables are not available from Cisco Systems; they are available from outside commercial cable vendors.

Use the following procedure to connect 100VG cables to a 100VG port adapter:


Step 1 Attach the 100VG RJ-45 cable directly to the 100VG port on the 100VG port adapter. (See Figure 18.)

Figure 18 Connecting 100VG Cables


Note   Port adapters have a handle attached, but it is not shown in to allow a full view of the detail on the port adapter's faceplate.


Step 2 Attach the network end of your 100VG cable to your external 100VG equipment.

Step 3 Repeat Steps 1 and 2 for each additional 100VG interface.

This completes the procedure for attaching 100VG port adapter cables.

Configuring the 100VG Interfaces

If you installed a new 100VG port adapter or if you want to change the configuration of an existing interface, you must enter configuration mode using the configure command. If you replaced a 100VG port adapter that was previously configured, the system will recognize each new 100VG and bring it up in its existing configuration.

After you verify that the new 100VG port adapter is installed correctly (the enabled LED goes on), use the privileged-level configure command to configure the new interfaces. Be prepared with the information you will need, such as the following:

Protocols you plan to route on each new interface

Internet protocol (IP) addresses if you plan to configure the interfaces for IP routing

Whether the new interfaces will use bridging

For a summary of the configuration options available and instructions for configuring the 100VG interfaces on a Cisco 7200 series router, refer to the appropriate configuration publications listed in the section "If You Need More Information" on page 2.

The configure command requires privileged-level access to the EXEC command interpreter, which usually requires a password. Contact your system administrator if necessary to obtain EXEC-level access.

Selecting Port Adapter Slot and 100VG Port Numbers

The following section describes how to identify port adapter slot and 100VG port numbers.

Physical port addresses specify the actual physical location of each interface port on the router. (See Figure 19.) This address is composed of a two-part number in the format port adapter slot number/interface port number, as follows:

The first number identifies the chassis slot in which the 100VG port adapter is installed.

The second number identifies the interface port on each 100VG port adapter—always numbered as interface 0.

Interface ports maintain the same address regardless of whether other port adapters are installed or removed from the slot. However, when you move a port adapter to a different slot, the first number in the address changes to reflect the new chassis slot number.

Figure 19 shows the port adapter slots and interface ports of a Cisco 7206. The port adapter slot numbers start with 1 and continue through 6 (slot 0 is always reserved for the Fast Ethernet port on the I/O controller—if present). The individual interface port numbers always begin with 0. The number of additional ports depends on the number of ports on a port adapter.

For example, the 100VG port on a 100VG port adapter in port adapter slot 3 would have the address 3/0. (See .) If the 100VG port adapter was in port adapter slot 1, this same interface port would be numbered 1/0.

Figure 19 Cisco 7206 100VG Port Number Example

You can identify interface ports by physically checking the slot/interface port location on the front of the router or by using show commands to display information about a specific interface or all interfaces in the router.

Configuring Interfaces

The following steps describe a basic interface configuration. Press the Return key after each step unless otherwise noted. At any time you can exit the privileged level and return to the user level by entering disable at the prompt as follows:

Router# disable

Router> 

Following is an example of a basic configuration procedure:


Step 1 At the privileged-level prompt, enter configuration mode and specify that the console terminal will be the source of the configuration subcommands as follows:

Router# configure terminal
Enter configuration commands, one per line.  End with CNTL/Z.
Router(config)#

Step 2 At the prompt, specify the first interface to configure by entering the subcommand interface, followed by the type (100vg) and slot/port (port adapter slot number and interface port number). The example that follows is for the first interface of the port adapter in slot 2:

Router(config)# interface 100vg 2/0

Step 3 If IP routing is enabled on the system, you can assign an IP address and subnet mask to the interface with the ip address configuration subcommand, as in the following example:

Router(config-if)# ip address 1.1.1.10 255.255.255.0

Step 4 Add any additional configuration subcommands required to enable routing protocols and set the interface characteristics.

Step 5 Change the shutdown state to up and enable the interface as follows:

Router(config-if)# no shutdown

Step 6 Configure additional interfaces as required.

Step 7 When you have included all of the configuration subcommands to complete the configuration, press Ctrl-Z to exit configuration mode.

Step 8 Write the new configuration to nonvolatile memory as follows:

Router# copy running-config startup-config
[OK]
Router#

To check the interface configuration using show commands, proceed to the section "Checking the Configuration."

Checking the Configuration

After configuring the new interface, use the show commands to display the status of the new interface or all interfaces, and use the ping command to check connectivity.

Using show Commands to Verify the New Interface Status

The following steps use show commands to verify that the new interfaces are configured and operating correctly:


Step 1 Display the system hardware configuration with the show version command to ensure that the list includes the new interfaces.

Step 2 Display all the current port adapters and their interfaces with the show controllers command. Verify that the new 100VG port adapter appears in the correct slot.

Step 3 Specify one of the new interfaces with the show interfaces type [slot/interface] command and verify that the first line of the display specifies the interface with the correct slot number. Also verify that the interface and line protocol are in the correct state: up or down.

Step 4 Display the protocols configured for the entire system and specific interfaces with the show protocols command. If necessary, return to configuration mode to add or remove protocol routing on the system or specific interfaces.

Step 5 Display the running configuration file with the show running-config command. Display the configuration stored in NVRAM using the show startup-config command. Verify that the configuration is accurate for the system and each interface.

If the interface is down and you configured it as up, or if the displays indicate that the hardware is not functioning properly, ensure that the network interface is properly connected and terminated. If you still have problems bringing the interface up, contact a service representative for assistance.

Using show Commands to Display Interface and System Information

To display information about a specific interface, use the show interfaces command with the interface type and port address in the format show interfaces type [slot/interface]. The following example of the show interfaces type [slot/interface] command shows all of the information specific to the first 100VG port (interface port 0) in port adapter slot 5:

Router# show int vg 5/0

Using the ping Command to Verify Network Connection

The packet internet groper (ping) command allows you to verify that an interface port is functioning properly and to check the path between a specific port and connected devices at various locations on the network. This section provides a brief description of the ping command. After you verify that the system has booted successfully and is operational, you can use this command to verify the status of interface ports. Refer to the publications listed in the section "If You Need More Information" on page 2, for detailed command descriptions and examples.

The ping command sends an echo request out to a remote device at an IP address that you specify. After sending a series of signals, the command waits a specified time for the remote device to echo the signals. Each returned signal is displayed as an exclamation point (!) on the console terminal; each signal that is not returned before the specified timeout is displayed as a period (.). A series of exclamation points (!!!!!) indicates a good connection; a series of periods (.....) or the messages [timed out] or [failed] indicate that the connection failed.

Following is an example of a successful ping command to a remote server with the address 1.1.1.10:

Router# ping 1.1.1.10 <Return>
Type escape sequence to abort.
Sending 5, 100-byte ICMP Echoes to 1.1.1.10, timeout is 2 seconds:
!!!!!
Success rate is 100 percent (5/5), round-trip min/avg/max = 1/15/64 ms
Router#

If the connection fails, verify that you have the correct IP address for the server and that the server is active (powered on); then repeat the ping command.

For complete descriptions of interface subcommands and the configuration options available for Cisco 7200 series-related interfaces and functionality, refer to the publications listed in the section "If You Need More Information" on page 2.

Technical Assistance Center

The Cisco Technical Assistance Center (TAC) is available to all customers who need technical assistance with a Cisco product, technology, or solution. Two levels of support are available: the Cisco TAC Web Site and the Cisco TAC Escalation Center.

Cisco TAC inquiries are categorized according to the urgency of the issue:

Priority level 4 (P4)—You need information or assistance concerning Cisco product capabilities, product installation, or basic product configuration.

Priority level 3 (P3)—Your network performance is degraded. Network functionality is noticeably impaired, but most business operations continue.

Priority level 2 (P2)—Your production network is severely degraded, affecting significant aspects of business operations. No workaround is available.

Priority level 1 (P1)—Your production network is down, and a critical impact to business operations will occur if service is not restored quickly. No workaround is available.

The Cisco TAC resource that you choose is based on the priority of the problem and the conditions of service contracts, when applicable.

Cisco TAC Web Site

You can use the Cisco TAC Web Site to resolve P3 and P4 issues yourself, saving both cost and time. The site provides around-the-clock access to online tools, knowledge bases, and software. To access the Cisco TAC Web Site, go to this URL:

http://www.cisco.com/tac

All customers, partners, and resellers who have a valid Cisco service contract have complete access to the technical support resources on the Cisco TAC Web Site. The Cisco TAC Web Site requires a Cisco.com login ID and password. If you have a valid service contract but do not have a login ID or password, go to this URL to register:

http://www.cisco.com/register/

If you are a Cisco.com registered user, and you cannot resolve your technical issues by using the Cisco TAC Web Site, you can open a case online by using the TAC Case Open tool at this URL:

http://www.cisco.com/tac/caseopen

If you have Internet access, we recommend that you open P3 and P4 cases through the Cisco TAC Web Site.

Cisco TAC Escalation Center

The Cisco TAC Escalation Center addresses priority level 1 or priority level 2 issues. These classifications are assigned when severe network degradation significantly impacts business operations. When you contact the TAC Escalation Center with a P1 or P2 problem, a Cisco TAC engineer automatically opens a case.

To obtain a directory of toll-free Cisco TAC telephone numbers for your country, go to this URL:

http://www.cisco.com/warp/public/687/Directory/DirTAC.shtml

Before calling, please check with your network operations center to determine the level of Cisco support services to which your company is entitled: for example, SMARTnet, SMARTnet Onsite, or Network Supported Accounts (NSA). When you call the center, please have available your service agreement number and your product serial number.
