SIP Installation and Removal

Installing and Removing a SIP

This chapter describes how to install or remove SIPs on the Cisco ASR 1000 Series Aggregation Services Routers. This chapter contains the following sections:

Handling SIPs

Each SIP circuit board is mounted to a metal carrier and is sensitive to electrostatic discharge (ESD) damage. See the “Preventing Electrostatic Discharge Damage” section for ESD precautions.

Before you begin installation, read “Preparing to Install a SIP or a SPA,” for a list of parts and tools required for installation.


Caution Always handle the SIP by the carrier edges and handle; never touch the SIP components or connector pins. (See Figure 1-1.)

When a slot is not in use, a blank filler plate must be installed in the empty slot to allow the router or switch to conform to electromagnetic interference (EMI) emissions requirements and to allow proper airflow across the installed modules. If you plan to install a SIP in a slot that is not in use, you must first remove the blank filler plate.

Figure 1-1 Handling a SIP

 

Online Insertion and Removal

The Cisco ASR 1000 Series Aggregation Services Routers support online insertion and removal (OIR) of the SPA interface processor (SIP), in addition to each of the shared port adapters (SPAs). Therefore, you can remove a SIP with its SPAs still intact, or you can remove a SPA independently from the SIP, leaving the SIP installed in the router.

This section includes the following topics on OIR support:

Preparing for Online Removal of a SIP

The Cisco ASR 1000 Series Aggregation Services Routers support OIR of the SIP. To perform an OIR, power down a SIP which automatically deactivates any installed SPAs and remove the SIP with the SPAs still intact.


NoteIf SIP-40 is installed with the bandwidth value greater than 11.2G and if SIP-40 is replaced with SIP-10 then the bandwidth of SIP-10 is reset to its default maximum bandwidth of 11.2G. An informational message indicating “Setting input bandwidth to ESI max bandwidth: 11199896” is displayed on the console. This message is displayed when SIP-40 is downgraded to SIP-10 from Cisco IOS XE Release 3.1.0S onwards.


Although graceful deactivation of a SIP is recommended using the hw-module slot stop command, the Cisco ASR 1000 Series Aggregation Services Routers support the removal of the SIP without deactivating it first. If you plan to remove a SIP, deactivate the SIP first, using the hw-module slot stop command in global configuration mode. When you deactivate a SIP using this command, it automatically deactivates each of the SPAs that are installed in that SIP. Therefore, it is not necessary to deactivate each of the SPAs prior to deactivating the SIP.

Either a blank filler plate or a functional SPA should reside in every subslot of a SIP during normal operation.

Deactivating a SIP

To deactivate a SIP and its installed SPAs prior to removal of the SIP, use the following command in global configuration mode:

 

Command
Purpose

Router(config)# hw-module slot slot-number stop

Shuts down any installed interfaces, and deactivates the SIP in the specified slot, where:

  • slot-number— Specifies the SIP chassis slot number where the SIP is installed.
  • stop Deactivates the SIP and places it in reset mode.

For more information about chassis slot numbering, see the “Identifying Slots and Subslots for SIPs and SPAs” section.

Reactivating a SIP

If you did deactivate the SIP using the hw-module slot stop command, then you do not need to reactivate the SPAs after an OIR of the SIP. The installed SPAs automatically reactivate upon reactivation of the SIP in the Cisco ASR 1000 Series Router.

For example, consider the case where you remove a SIP from the Cisco ASR 1000 Series Router to replace it with another SIP. You reinstall the same SPAs into the new SIP. When you enter the hw-module slot start command on the Cisco ASR 1000 Series Router, the SPAs automatically reactivate with the new SIP.

To activate a SIP and its installed SPAs after the SIP has been deactivated, use the following command in global configuration mode:

 

Command
Purpose

Router(config)# hw-module slot slot-number start

Activates the SIP in the specified slot and its installed SPAs, where:

  • slot-number— Specifies the SIP chassis slot number where the SIP is installed.
  • start Activates the SIP and removes it from reset mode.

For more information about chassis slot numbering, see the “Identifying Slots and Subslots for SIPs and SPAs” section.

Verifying the Deactivation and Activation of a SIP

To verify the deactivation of a SIP, enter the show platform command in privileged EXEC configuration mode. Observe the State field associated with the SIP that you want to verify.

The following example shows that the Cisco ASR1000-SIP10 located in slot 1 is deactivated.

Router# show platform

Preparing for Online Removal of a SPA

The Cisco ASR 1000 Series Routers support the OIR of a SPA independent of removing the SIP. This means that a SIP can remain installed in the Cisco ASR 1000 Series Router with one SPA remaining active, while you remove another SPA from one of the SIP subslots. If you are not planning to immediately replace a SPA into the SIP, ensure that you install a blank filler plate in the subslot. The SIP should always be fully installed with either functional SPAs or blank filler plates.

If you are planning to remove a SIP along with its SPAs, you do not have to follow the instructions provided in this section. To remove a SIP, see the “Preparing for Online Removal of a SIP” section.

Deactivating a SPA

Although graceful deactivation of a SPA is recommended using the hw-module subslot stop command in EXEC mode, the Cisco ASR 1000 Series Routers support the removal of the SPA without deactivating it first. Before deactivating a SPA, ensure that the SIP is seated securely in the slot before you pull out the SPA.


NoteIf you are preparing for an OIR of a SPA, it is not necessary to independently shut down each of the interfaces prior to deactivation of the SPA. The hw-module slot stop command in EXEC mode automatically stops traffic on the interfaces and deactivates them along with the SPA in preparation for OIR. In similar fashion, you do not need to independently restart any interfaces on a SPA after OIR of a SPA or SIP.


Enter the show facility-alarm status command. The following example shows a critical alarm that is generated when a SPA is removed from the system:

Router# show facility-alarm status
System Totals Critical: 1 Major: 0 Minor: 0
Source Severity Description [Index]
------ -------- -------------------
subslot 1/1 CRITICAL Active Card Removed OIR Alarm [0]

NoteA critical alarm "Active Card Removed OIR Alarm" is generated even if a SPA is removed after performing graceful deactivation.


Choosing the Mode of the hw-module subslot Command

You can deactivate a SPA and all of its interfaces by using the hw-module subslot command in one of two modes:

  • If you choose to use the hw-module subslot shutdown command in global configuration mode, you change the configuration so that no matter how many times the router is rebooted, the SPA will not boot. This command is useful when you need to shut down a SPA in a remote location and ensure that it does not come back up if the router is rebooted.
  • If you choose to use the hw-module subslot stop command in EXEC mode, you cause the SPA to gracefully shut down. However, the SPA will come up again when executing the hw-module subslot start command.

To deactivate a SPA and all of its interfaces prior to removal of the SPA, use one of the following commands in global configuration mode:

 

Command or Action
Purpose

Router(config)# hw-module subslot slot-number/subslot-number shutdown [ powered | unpowered ]

Deactivates the SPA in the specified slot and subslot of the SIP, where:

  • slot-number Specifies the chassis slot number where the SIP is installed.
  • subslot-number —Specifies the subslot number on a SIP where a SPA is installed.
  • shutdown —Shuts down the specified SPA.
  • powered —(Optional) Shuts down the SPA and all of its interfaces, and leaves them in an administratively down state with power enabled. This is the default state.
  • unpowered —(Optional) Shuts down the SPA and all of its interfaces, and leaves them in an administratively down state without power.

Router(config)# hw-module subslot slot-number/subslot-number {reload | stop | start}

Deactivates the SPA in the specified slot and subslot of the SIP, where:

  • slot-number Specifies the chassis slot number where the SIP is installed.
  • subslot-number —Specifies the subslot number on a SIP where a SPA is installed.
  • reload —Stops and restarts the specified SPA.
  • stop Stops the specified SPA.
  • start—Starts the specified SPA.

For more information about chassis slot and SIP subslot numbering, refer to the “Identifying Slots and Subslots for SIPs and SPAs” section.

Reactivating a SPA


NoteYou do not need to reactivate a SPA after an OIR of either the SIP or a SPA if you did not deactivate the SPA prior to removal when using the hw-module subslot command in global configuration mode. If the Cisco ASR 1000 Series Router is running, then the SPAs automatically start upon insertion into the SIP or with insertion of a SIP into the Cisco ASR 1000 Series Router.


If you deactivate a SPA using the hw-module subslot stop command and need to reactivate it without performing an OIR, you must use the hw-module subslot start command to reactivate the SPA and its interfaces.

To activate a SPA and its interfaces after the SPA has been deactivated, use the following command in global configuration mode:

Command
Purpose

Router(config)# no hw-module subslot slot-number/subslot-number shutdown

Activates the SPA and its interfaces in the specified slot and subslot of the SIP, where:

  • slot-number Specifies the chassis slot number where the SIP is installed.
  • subslot-number —Specifies the subslot number on a SIP where a SPA is installed.

Verifying the Deactivation and Activation of a SPA

When you deactivate a SPA, the corresponding interfaces are also deactivated. This means that these interfaces will no longer appear in the output of the show interface command.

To verify the deactivation of a SPA, enter the show hw-module subslot all oir command in privileged EXEC configuration mode. Observe the Operational Status field associated with the SPA that you want to verify.

In the following example, the SPA located in subslot 1 of the SIP in slot 2 of the Cisco ASR 1000 Series Router is administratively down from the hw-module subslot shutdown command:

Router# show hw-module subslot all oir
Module Model Operational Status
-------------- ------------------ -------------------------
subslot 2/0 SPA-1X10GE-L-V2 ok
subslot 2/1 SPA-8X1GE-v2 admin down
 

To verify activation and proper operation of a SPA, enter the show hw-module subslot all oir command and observe “ok” in the Operational Status field as shown in the following example:

Router# show hw-module subslot all oir
Module Model Operational Status
-------------- ------------------ -------------------------
subslot 2/0 SPA-1X10GE-L-V2 ok
subslot 2/1 SPA-8X1GE-v2 ok

Deactivation and Activation Configuration Examples

This section provides the following examples of deactivating and activating SIPs and SPAs:

Deactivation of a SIP Configuration Example

Deactivate a SIP when you want to perform OIR of the SIP. The following example deactivates the SIP that is installed in slot 1 of the Cisco ASR 1000 Series Router, its SPAs, and all of the interfaces:

Router(config)# hw-module slot 1 stop

Activation of a SIP Configuration Example

Activate a SIP if you have previously deactivated it. If you did not deactivate the SPAs, the SPAs automatically reactivate with reactivation of the SIP.

The following example activates the SIP that is installed in slot 1 of the Cisco ASR 1000 Series Router, its SPAs, and all of the interfaces (as long as the hw-module subslot shutdown command was not issued to also deactivate the SPA):

Router(config)# hw-module slot 1 start
 

There are no corresponding console messages shown with activation using this command. If you re-enter the hw-module slot start command, a message displays indicating that the module is already enabled.

Deactivation of a SPA Configuration Example

Deactivate a SPA when you want to perform OIR of that SPA. The following example deactivates the SPA (and its interfaces) that is installed in subslot 0 of the SIP located in slot 1 of the Cisco ASR 1000 Series Router and removes power to the SPA.

 

Router(config)# hw-module subslot 1/0 shutdown unpowered

Activation of a SPA Configuration Example

Activate a SPA if you have previously deactivated it. If you have not deactivated a SPA and its interfaces during OIR of a SIP, then the SPA is automatically reactivated upon reactivation of the SIP.

The following example activates the SPA that is installed in subslot 0 of the SIP located in slot 1 of the Cisco ASR 1000 Series Router.

Router(config)# no hw-module subslot 1/0 shutdown

SIP Installation and Removal

This section provides step-by-step instructions for installing and removing a SIP.


NoteThe SIP in the Cisco ASR 1002 Router and Cisco ASR 1002-X Router is permanently installed and cannot be removed.



Caution When performing the following procedures, wear a grounding wrist strap to avoid ESD damage to the SIP. Some platforms have an ESD connector for attaching the wrist strap. Do not directly touch the midplane or backplane with your hand or any metal tool.

To install a SIP, refer to Figure 1-2 and do the following:


Step 1 Before inserting a SIP, make sure that the chassis is grounded.

Step 2 To insert the SIP, carefully align the edges of the SIP between the upper and lower edges of the router slot.

Step 3 Carefully slide the SIP into the router slot until the SIP makes contact with the backplane.

Step 4 Tighten the locking thumbscrews on both sides of the SIP.

Step 5 Connect all cables to each SPA.


 

To remove a SIP, refer to Figure 1-2 and do the following:


Step 1 To remove the SIP, first disconnect all cables from each SPA.

Step 2 Loosen the locking thumbscrews on both sides of the SIP.

Step 3 Slide the SIP out of the router slot. If you are removing a blank filler plate, pull the blank filler plate completely out of the router slot.
