Step 8 Secure the power cabling to the chassis by feeding a tie wrap through the slot on the safety cover and binding the cables.

Step 9 Replace the rear safety cover, making sure that the power wires exit through the holes on the side of the safety cover.


This completes the installation of the Cisco 10008 chassis in the rack. Go to the "Connecting Cables" section.

Connecting AC Power to the Cisco 10008 Router

The Cisco 10008 router can be powered on directly from the facility VAC input through the AC PEM (100-240 VAC). The AC PEM is provided with an IEC 320 250V, 20A power cord with a male-type connector (16A rating for Europe) for the attachment of power cords used throughout the world.


Warning Only trained and qualified personnel should be allowed to install or replace this equipment. Statement 49



Caution The 20A connector on the AC PEM is incompatible with the 15A power strips that are used in most equipment racks. Wiring codes prevent the AC-input power cable from being used with the power strips in equipment racks.


Note The AC power cord that connects the PEM to the building VAC is not shipped with the Cisco 10008 and must be ordered separately.


Be sure you have connected the chassis to an earth ground as instructed in the "Attaching the Grounding Lug" section, and then use the following procedure to connect AC power to the PEM:

Figure 16 Setting AC PEM Switches to the Off Position


Step 1 Set the AC PEM switches to the Off position.

Step 2 Connect the power cord from the PEM to the power cord that connects to the facility VAC input.

Step 3 Set the AC power cord connectors in a power cord strain-relief device to prevent them from disconnecting accidently.

Step 4 Plug the power cord into the facility VAC input receptacle.


This completes the installation of the Cisco 10008 chassis in the rack. Go to the "Connecting Cables" section.

5 Connecting Cables

This section provides information about connecting cables to the Cisco 10008 router.

Connecting Alarm Indicators

The Cisco 10008 router provides relay contacts for optional (customer-supplied) audible or visual alarm indicators. Relay contacts are provided for three levels of severity:

Minor—An informational alarm that does not affect system operation.

Major—An alarm condition that affects system operation and should be investigated as soon as possible.

Critical—An alarm condition that affects system operation and requires immediate attention.

Figure 18 Loosening Captive Screws on the Safety Cover

Use the following procedure to connect an alarm indicator to the system:


Step 1 Loosen the captive screw on the rear safety cover and tilt the cover back.

Figure 19 Removing the Safety Cover

Step 2 Remove the safety cover by lifting it up and out from the chassis.

Figure 20 Stripping Insulation

Step 3 Using a wire-stripping tool, strip not more than 0.4 inches (10 mm) of insulation off the ends of the alarm indicator wire.

Figure 21 Alarm Indicator Terminal Block Connections

Step 4 Connect one set of alarm indicator wires to the alarm terminal block as follows:

a. Connect one lead to the common (COM) terminal.

b. Connect the other lead to the normally closed (NC) or normally open (NO) terminal.


Caution Figure 21 shows the wiring configuration for normally open (NO) alarm relays. If you are wiring the router in series with other equipment for the alarm indicators, use the normally closed (NC) terminals. If you are wiring the router in parallel with other equipment for the alarm indicators, use the NO terminals.

Step 5 Repeat Step 3 and Step 4 for any remaining alarm indicators.

Figure 22 Alarm Indicator Wires Exiting the Safety Cover

Step 6 Secure the power cabling to the chassis by feeding a tie wrap through the slot in the safety cover and binding the wires.

Step 7 Replace the rear safety cover, making sure that the alarm indicator wires exit through the hole on the side of the safety cover.


Connecting a Video Terminal to the PRE Console Port

The Cisco 10008 router PRE has an asynchronous serial (EIA/TIA-232) RJ-45 console port labeled CON on its front panel. You can connect this port to most types of video terminals through the use of the console cable kit that is included with your Cisco 10008 router. The console cable kit contains:

One RJ-45- to-RJ-45 crossover cable

One RJ-45-to-DB-25 (female) adapter

One RJ-45-to-DB-9 (female) adapter

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 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).


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


Use the following procedure to connect a video terminal to the console port on a PRE:

Figure 23 Console Port Connection on the PRE


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

Step 2 Run the cable up and through the cable-management bracket and connect the other end of the RJ-45 crossover cable to the RJ-45 adapter (Figure 24). If your terminal is equipped with a DB-25 serial connector, use the RJ-45-to-DB-25 adapter. If your terminal is equipped with a DB-9 serial connector, use the RJ-45-to-DB-9 adapter.

Figure 24 Connecting an RJ-45-to-DB-9 Console Cable Adapter

Step 3 Connect the adapter to your video terminal to complete the cable connection.

Step 4 Power on your video terminal.

Step 5 Configure your video terminal to match the following default console port settings:

9600 baud

8 data bits

No parity generation or checking

1 stop bit

No flow control


Connecting Network Management and Signal System Cables

The Cisco 10008 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.

The external data network connections are made through DS3 connectors on the router's backplane, and through the front panel ports on several types of line cards.

Keep the following guidelines in mind when connecting external cables to the Cisco 10008 router:

To reduce the chance of interference, avoid crossing high-power lines with any interface cables.

Verify all cabling limitations (particularly distance) before powering on the system.

Ethernet Network Management Cable Connections

The PRE 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 10008 router to an Ethernet network.


Note Each PRE must have an Ethernet port connection (typically to the same Ethernet hub) if you are running a redundant configuration in the chassis.


Connecting to a 10BASE-T Ethernet Network

To connect to a 10BASE-T Ethernet network, you need the following additional equipment (not included):

An Ethernet hub (such as a Cisco Micro Hub)

An Ethernet UTP cable that meets the following specifications:

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

100-ohm Category 3, 4, or 5 cable not 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:

Figure 25 Connecting the 10BASE-T Cable to the Ethernet Port


Step 1 Connect one end of the Ethernet cable to the RJ-45 port on the primary PRE, labeled ETHERNET.

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.

Step 3 Check the LINK LED on the PRE faceplate (next to the ETHERNET port). This LED lights (green) if the PRE is correctly connected to the 10BASE-T Ethernet LAN.


Connecting to a 100BASE-T Ethernet Network

To connect to a 100BASE-T Ethernet network, you need the following additional equipment (not included):

An Ethernet hub (such as a Cisco Micro Hub)

An Ethernet UTP cable that meets the following specifications:

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

100-ohm Category 5 cable not longer than 328 feet (100 meters) (Cisco Systems does not supply Category 5 UTP cables; these cables are available commercially.)

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.


Caution If the Cisco 10008 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:

Figure 26 Connecting the 100BASE-T Cable to the Ethernet Port


Step 1 Connect one end of the Ethernet cable to the RJ-45 port on the primary PRE, labeled ETHERNET.

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.

Step 3 Check the LINK LED on the PRE faceplate (next to the ETHERNET port). This LED lights (green) if the PRE is correctly connected to the 100BASE-T Ethernet LAN.


Auxiliary Modem Connection

This asynchronous EIA/TIA-232 serial port is used to connect a modem to the PRE for remote administrative access. Use the following procedure to connect the Cisco 10008 router to a modem.

Basic Configuration Using the Setup Facility

The first time you power on a Cisco 10008 router, the setup facility starts. You can also initiate the setup facility by running the setup command in privileged EXEC mode. This facility helps you enhance a default configuration that already exists on the Cisco 10008 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.


Using the 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 10008 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 setup command.

Basic System Configuration Procedure

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 To perform a basic management setup, enter Yes. 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 password.

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

After you respond to the SNMP questions, the setup script lists the interfaces., for example:

Interface
IP-Address
OK?
Method
Status
Protocol
Ethernet0/0/0 
unassigned
YES
unset
up
up
FastEthernet0/0/0
unassigned
NO
unset
up
up

Interfaces that are not okay (OK? = NO) do not have a valid configuration.

Step 10 To achieve network connectivity, enter the interface for the Fast Ethernet interface.

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

FastEthernet0/0/0

Step 11 Accept the default value for the type of connector. RJ-45 is the only connector that can be used on the Cisco 10008 router Ethernet port.

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

Step 12 Configure both the Cisco 10008 router and the remote device to use the same mode.

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

Step 13 You must enter the IP address to achieve network connectivity.

Configure IP on this interface? [yes]: yes

Step 14 Specify the IP address.

IP address for this interface: 172.27.48.209

Step 15 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 c10008
enable secret 5 $1$uror$EFU0hKOBQXhk975qKFZlL0
enable password lab
line vty 0 4
password lab
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 16 The setup script concludes by giving you the choice to exit 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 17 After you complete the configuration dialog, enter global configuration mode 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 c10008
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 3.5.3.45 255.255.0.0
Router # copy running-config startup-config

You can now configure the line cards. For specific information on system and interface configuration, see the Cisco 10000 Series Router Line Card Configuration Guide.

8 Formatting Flash Disks and Flash Cards

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


Caution The formatting procedure erases all information on Flash memory disks or Flash cards.

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

Use the following procedure to format a Flash disk:


Step 1 To format a Flash disk, you should be in privileged EXEC mode.

Step 2 Ensure there is a Flash disk in slot 0 or slot 1 of the PRE.

Step 3 Enter the format diskn: command at the privileged EXEC mode prompt to format the disk.


The following 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 Flash disk is now ready for use.

9 Managing the File Systems

This section describes the file systems used on the Cisco 10008 router and provides procedures for performing basic file system tasks.

File Systems

The Cisco 10008 router includes the file systems described in the following table.

Table 3 File Systems

File System

Disk refers to an ATA Flash disk (48 or 128 MB).


Slot refers to a Flash card (8, 16, or 20 MB).
0 refers to the left slot on the PRE.
1 refers to the right slot on the PRE.

Secondary refers to the secondary PRE in a redundant system.

FTP
TFTP
RCP

ftp:
tftp:
rcp:

Protocols used for accessing files that are stored remotely.


Flash disks and the smaller Flash cards use similar commands. The primary syntax change is that disk0: or disk1: refers to Flash disks, and slot0: or slot1: refers to Flash cards.

You can use the privileged EXEC commands dir, del, and copy to manage the contents of the file systems. You can also use the commands mkdir and rmdir to create and remove directories on Flash disks. You cannot use the commands squeeze and undelete on Flash disks. For more information, refer to the Cisco IOS Configuration Fundamentals Configuration Guide.

Copying the Startup Configuration to the Running Configuration

Use the copy startup-config running-config command to copy the startup configuration file on NVRAM to the running configuration. If your startup configuration file is approaching the NVRAM limit of 512 KB, you must either compress it or relocate it as described in the "Managing Configuration Files Larger than NVRAM" section.


Tip If your configuration file is large, run the copy startup-config running-config command during off-peak hours. This command might slow down traffic for several minutes while the system is merging the starting and the running configurations.


Managing Configuration Files Larger than NVRAM

To maintain a configuration file that exceeds the size of NVRAM (512 KB), you must compress or relocate the configuration file. This section provides an example of each approach. For more information, refer to the Cisco IOS Configuration Fundamentals Configuration Guide.

Compressing the Configuration File

Use the service compress-config global configuration command to compress the configuration file for storage in NVRAM. A compressed file can take several minutes longer to load than an uncompressed file.

To compress configuration files, use the following commands, beginning in global configuration mode:


Step 1 Specify that the configuration file is to be compressed.

Router(config)# service compress-config

Step 2 Exit global configuration mode.

Router(config)# end

Step 3 Use one of the copy commands to copy the new configuration, for example:

Router# copy running-config startup-config

Building configuration...
Compressing configuration from 129648 bytes to 11077 bytes
[OK]


To cancel the compression feature, use the no service compress-config command.


Note If you try to load a configuration that is more than three times larger than the NVRAM size, the following error message appears: [buffer overflow—file-size/buffer-size bytes].


Relocating the Configuration to a Flash Disk

To run the startup configuration off a Flash disk, use the following commands beginning in privileged EXEC mode:


Step 1 Copy the current startup configuration to a new location. In the following example, the configuration file is copied from a TFTP server to a Flash disk in slot 0:

Router# copy tftp://172.16.2.15/example-config disk0:router-config

Step 2 Enter global configuration mode.

Router# configure terminal
Router(config)#

Step 3 The buffer that holds the configuration file is usually the size of NVRAM (512 KB). Larger configurations need larger buffers. Change the size of the buffer that holds the configuration commands.

Router(config)# boot buffersize 1024000

Step 4 Specify that the startup configuration file is located in Flash memory by setting the CONFIG_FILE variable. In the following example, the system is told that the boot configuration file is in slot 0 and the filename is router-config:

Router(config)# boot config disk0:router-config

Step 5 Exit global configuration mode.

Router(config)# end

Step 6 When you finish changing the running configuration, save the new configuration.

Router# copy running-config startup-config


As a result of this procedure, when you reboot the Cisco 10008 router, it loads the configuration file that resides on Flash disk 0.

10 Troubleshooting Installation Problems

This section contains general troubleshooting information to help you solve problems you might encounter during the installation of the system. For any problems not covered in this section and for more detailed troubleshooting information, see the Cisco 10000 Series Internet Router Troubleshooting Guide.

General Troubleshooting Tips

Table 4 lists general FRU fault symptoms and recommendations.

Table 4 General Troubleshooting Tips 

Symptom
Steps to Take

System fails to power on

Check that:

All power cords are properly connected to the Cisco 10008 router and at the power connection end.

The PEM power switches are in the On position.

For DC PEMs, the POWER LED should be on (green).

The blower module is fully inserted (FANS OK LED is on [green]).

System fails to boot up properly

If the system has power, check the FAIL LED on the PRE and any information on the alphanumeric display. If the FAIL LED is on, see the Cisco 10000 Series Internet Router Troubleshooting Guide.

DC PEM problem

If the FAULT LED is on, see the Cisco 10000 Series Internet Router Troubleshooting Guide.

If the MISWIRE LED is on, the -48V and return (RTN) wires are reversed. Power off the PEM and reconnect the wires correctly (see the "Connecting DC Power to the Cisco 10008 Router" section).

System experiences a critical alarm (CRITICAL LED on the PRE is on)

Enter the show facility-alarm status command at the console.

System experiences a major alarm (MAJOR LED on the PRE is on)

Enter the show facility-alarm status command at the console.

System experiences a minor alarm (MINOR LED on the PRE is on)

Enter the show facility-alarm status command at the console.

You cannot establish a console or Telnet connection to the system

For information about troubleshooting Ethernet connections, see the "Troubleshooting Ethernet Connections" section.

For information about troubleshooting the console port serial connections, see the "Troubleshooting the Console Port Serial Connection" section.

Fan failure

If a FAN FAILURE LED lights, perform the following steps:

Reseat the blower module (see the Cisco 10000 ESR Blower Module Installation).

Remove the rear safety cover and be sure that the blower module cable is connected securely (see the Cisco 10000 ESR Blower Module Installation).

System overheats

See the Cisco 10000 Series Internet Router Troubleshooting Guide for additional information.


Troubleshooting Ethernet Connections

If an Ethernet connection to your Cisco 10008 router fails to work properly, and the corresponding LINK LED is not on, check for the following problems:

Visually check that an Ethernet cable is connected to the correct Ethernet port on the PRE, and that the other end of the cable is connected to an Ethernet hub that is powered on and functioning properly.

Check to see if you are using the correct type of cable. The cable must meet the specifications given in the "Connecting to a 10BASE-T Ethernet Network" section.

Check if the cable might be bad or broken. Replace the cable with a known, reliable straight-through Ethernet cable, checking to be sure the LINK LED comes on (green).

If the LINK LED is still off, it is possible that the Ethernet port might be functioning properly, but the LED is not working. Check the Ethernet port (by trying to ping over it, for example) to determine if the problem is due to a bad LED or if the Ethernet link is bad.

Make sure the PRE has booted up properly:

The STATUS LED should be on (green).

If the FAIL LED is on (yellow), see the Cisco 10000 Series Internet Router Troubleshooting Guide for troubleshooting information.

Check the hub:

Look to see if the cable is connected into the correct hub port (for example, the HUB LED is on, but the LINK LED on the PRE is not on).

Be sure that the cable is not connected to an uplink port.

If the LINK LED is on (green), but the Ethernet port does not seem to be working properly, make sure that the port in question is configured properly and is not administratively shut down. If you have a working console connection, perform the following steps:

At the router prompt, enter show interface fast0/0/0. If the port is administratively down, enter these commands to enable it:

Switch> configure terminal
Enter configuration commands, one per line.  End with CNTL/Z.
Router(config-if)# interface fast0/0/0
Router(config-if)# no shut
Router(config-if)# exit
Router(config)# exit

Check that the Ethernet port in question has a valid IP address assigned to it.

For more information about configuring Ethernet ports, see the Cisco 10000 Series Router Line Card Configuration Guide.

If the cables, connections, power, and configuration are all acceptable, and you still cannot connect to the Ethernet port on the PRE, you probably need to replace the PRE. Contact Cisco Technical Support for further assistance.

Troubleshooting the Console Port Serial Connection

If the terminal connected to the Cisco 10008 console port appears frozen or fails to work properly, check for the following problems:

Check the console cable and make sure it is properly connected to the correct console port on the PRE, and to your equipment at the other end.

Verify that you are using the proper type of cable and adapter.

To be sure the cable is not defective or broken, replace the cable with another high-quality cable if possible.

Check that your terminal equipment is working properly and configured with the correct settings for the console port. The default console port settings are:

9600 baud

8 data bits

No parity generation or checking

1 stop bit

No flow control

Check the LEDs on the PRE to make sure that it is powered on properly.

If the cables, connections, power, and terminal settings are all acceptable and you still cannot connect to the console port on the PRE, you probably need to replace the PRE. Contact Cisco Technical Support for further assistance.
