Input/Output Controller Description

The input/output controller shares the system memory functions and the environmental monitoring functions with the network processing engine or network services engine in the Cisco 7200 series routers and Cisco uBR7200 series routers, which include the following:

Cisco 7200 series routers, consisting of the two-slot Cisco 7202, four-slot Cisco 7204 and Cisco 7204VXR, and six-slot Cisco 7206 and Cisco 7206VXR


Note The Cisco 7206 and Cisco 7206VXR can be used as router shelves in a Cisco AS5800 universal access server. References to the Cisco 7200 series routers in this document include the Cisco 7206 and Cisco 7206VXR as router shelves in a Cisco AS5800 universal access server, unless indicated otherwise.


Cisco uBR7200 series universal broadband routers, consisting of the six-slot Cisco uBR7246VXR and Cisco uBR7246 (two port adapter slots and four cable modem card slots) and the three-slot Cisco uBR7223 (one port adapter slot and two cable modem card slots)

This document describes five different models of I/O controllers that are distinguished from one another by their Ethernet interface options. Table 2 lists the I/O controllers by product number and describes their differences. See also the "Software and Hardware Requirements" section.

1 The C7200-I/O-FE-MII I/O controller has reached its end-of-life and is no longer an orderable product as of April 1998. The C7200-I/O-FE I/O controller has reached its end-of-life and is no longer an orderable product as of December 2000.

2 The Cisco uBR7200 series I/O controllers have the boot helper (boot loader) image used by a Cisco uBR7200 series router loaded on the Flash memory SIMMs. The Cisco 7200 series I/O controllers do not.

3 The product number C7200-I/O-FE does not specify MII because both an MII and an RJ-45 port are included.

4 The I/O controller with the product number C7200-I/O-FE-MII has a single MII Fast Ethernet port only.



Note Throughout this document the different I/O controller models are referred to by their Cisco 7200 series product numbers; however, the information presented is the same for corresponding I/O controllers used in Cisco uBR7200 series routers, unless otherwise noted.


The I/O controllers consist of the following components and options:

Ethernet, Fast Ethernet, or Gigabit Ethernet interface options

Dual channels for local console and auxiliary ports

The console port has full data communications equipment (DCE) functionality, and the auxiliary port has full data terminal equipment (DTE) functionality.

NVRAM for storing the system configuration and environmental monitoring logs


Note NVRAM uses lithium batteries to maintain its contents when disconnected from power. Some I/O controllers use a static RAM (SRAM) component with an external lithium battery to provide the same functionality as the NVRAM. (See Figure 1 and Figure 2.)


Two PC card slots that hold Flash Disks or Flash memory cards for storing the default Cisco IOS software image

Flash memory for storing the boot helper (boot loader) image

LED Descriptions

The I/O controller faceplate contains LEDs that indicate system and port status; two additional LEDs indicate the status of the Flash Disk or Flash memory cards installed in either PC Card slot. A CPU reset button is located next to the IO power OK LED or next to the auxiliary port on the I/O controller faceplate. The CPU reset button resets the entire system.


Caution To prevent system errors and problems, use the CPU reset button only at the direction of your service representative.

Table 6 lists LEDs common to all models of I/O controllers and describes their functions.

1 You can install an I/O controller with or without a Fast Ethernet port in a Cisco 7202; however, when you install an I/O controller with a Fast Ethernet port, the Cisco 7202 system software automatically disables the port.

2 The Cisco 7206 and Cisco 7206VXR can be used as router shelves in a Cisco AS5800 universal access server. For information about the Cisco AS5800 universal access server, refer to the Cisco AS5800 universal access server documentation listed in the "Related Documentation" section.

3 If you need to order a spare I/O controller for a Cisco uBR7200 series router, use the Cisco uBR7200 series product number followed by an equal sign (=). These I/O controllers have the Cisco uBR7200 series boot helper (boot loader) image loaded on the Flash SIMMs. (For Cisco uBR7200 series product numbers, see Table 2.)

4 Initial shipments of the Cisco uBR7246 chassis that were equipped with a Fast Ethernet I/O controller might have an I/O controller with the single MII port installed. These I/O controllers are fully compatible with the router. If you need to order a spare I/O controller, use the product numbers described in the previous footnote.

5 To support the UBR7200-I/O-FE, the Cisco uBR7200 series routers can use any previous boot image that supports a supported version of Cisco IOS software. However, we recommend using the Cisco IOS Release 12.0(15)SC [ubr7200-boot-mz.12.0-15.SC] boot image for maximum feature support.

6 The Cisco IOS Release 12.1(10)EC or later Cisco IOS Release 12.1 EC boot image must be used only on a Cisco uBR7246VXR using the UBR7200-I/O-2FE/E controller. This boot helper image must not be used for any Cisco uBR7200 series router using the UBR7200-I/O-FE controller.


Depending on the I/O controller model you have, the hardware requirements in the following sections apply.

C7200-I/O-2FE/E I/O Controller

The C7200-I/O-2FE/E I/O controller operates only in the Cisco 7204VXR and Cisco 7206VXR routers, and in the Cisco uBR7246VXR universal broadband router.

The C7200-I/O-2FE/E I/O controller is not supported in conjunction with the NPE-100 or NPE-150, because these network processing engines (NPEs) require that there be a boot ROM present on the I/O controller; however, the C7200-I/O-2FE/E I/O controller does not have a boot ROM component.

The C7200-I/O-2FE/E I/O controller is not supported in conjunction with the NPE-200, because operational behavior with this NPE is unpredictable.

The C7200-I/O-2FE/E I/O controller operates with the following: NPE-225, NPE-300, NPE-400, NPE-G1, NPE-G2, and NSE-1 only.


Note The C7200-I/O-2FE/E I/O controller operates only with this version of the NPE-225: board label 73-3453-05 rev. A0 or higher, or faceplate label 800-05418-03 rev. A0 or higher.

To check for the correct NPE-225 version in software, use the show c7200 command. Under CPU EEPROM, look for Hardware Revision 1.3 or higher.



Note The NPE-300 has reached its end-of-life and is no longer orderable as of November 15, 2001.


The C7200-I/O-2FE/E I/O controller operates with the NPE-G1 and NPE-G2, but an I/O controller is not necessary because the NPE-G1 and NPE-G2 contain their own onboard controller. Installing an I/O controller in a chassis with the NPE-G1 or NPE-G2 activates the console and auxiliary ports on the I/O controller and automatically disables the console and auxiliary ports on board the NPE-G1 or NPE-G2. However, you can still use the Flash Disk slots and Ethernet ports on both the NPE-G1 or NPE-G2 and I/O controller when both cards are installed.

To comply with EMI EN55022 Class B regulations, shielded Ethernet cables (p/n 72-1501-01) must be used with the UBR7200-I/O-2FE/E controller in the Cisco uBR7246VXR router.

The C7200-I/O-2FE/E I/O controller is not supported in conjunction with the NPE-175. When you install a C7200-I/O-2FE/E I/O controller in a system that is using an NPE-175, the system software automatically disables the ports on the I/O controller.

Additionally, the following error message appears in the system banner at bootup:

PA-3-NOTSUPPORTED: PA in slot0 (Dual FastEthernet/Ethernet (with GBIC/RJ45) I/O 
Card) is not supported on this chassis or npe cpu card

Note The C7200-I/O-2FE/E controller requires the c7200-kboot-mz boot helper image, and the UBR7200-I/O-2FE/E I/O controller requires the ubr7200-kboot-mz boot helper image. Attempting to use the standard boot image results in no network boot interfaces with the following warning message displayed:

%c7200-3-IONOTSUPPORTEDBYLOADER: I/O controller (type 539) is not supported by this boot loader. The I/O controller network interfaces will be unavailable.


C7200-I/O-GE+E I/O Controller

The C7200-I/O-GE+E I/O controller operates only in the Cisco 7204VXR and Cisco 7206VXR routers

The C7200-I/O-GE+E I/O controller is not supported in conjunction with the NPE-100 or NPE-150, because these network processing engines (NPEs) require that there be a boot ROM present on the I/O controller; however, the C7200-I/O-GE+E I/O controller does not have a boot ROM component.

The C7200-I/O-GE+E I/O controller is not supported in conjunction with the NPE-200, because operational behavior with this NPE is unpredictable.

The Cisco C7200-I/O-GE+E I/O controller operates with the following NPEs and network services engine (NSE) only on the Cisco 7204VXR and Cisco 7206VXR routers: NPE-300, NPE-400, NPE-G1, and NSE-1.


Note The C7200-I/O-GE+E I/O controller operates with the NPE-G1, but an I/O controller is not necessary because the NPE-G1 contains its own onboard controller. Installing an I/O controller in a chassis with the NPE-G1 activates the console and auxiliary ports on the I/O controller and automatically disables the console and auxiliary ports on board the NPE-G1. However, you can still use the Flash Disk slots and Ethernet ports on both the NPE-G1 and I/O controller when both cards are installed.


The C7200-I/O-GE+E I/O controller is not supported in conjunction with the NPE-175 and NPE-225. When you install a C7200-I/O-GE+E I/O controller in a system that is using an NPE-175 or an NPE-225, the system software automatically disables the ports on the I/O controller.

Additionally, the following error message appears in the system banner at bootup:

PA-3-NOTSUPPORTED: PA in slot0 (GigabitEthernet/Ethernet (with GBIC/RJ45) I/O Card) is 
not supported on this chassis or npe cpu card

Note The C7200-I/O-GE+E I/O controller requires the c7200-kboot-mz boot helper image. Attempting to use the standard boot image results in no network boot interfaces with the following warning message displayed:

%c7200-3-IONOTSUPPORTEDBYLOADER: I/O controller (type 539) is not supported by this boot loader. The I/O controller network interfaces will be unavailable.


C7200-I/O-FE=, C7200-I/O-MII=, or C7200-I/O= I/O Controllers

You can install the C7200-I/O-FE, C7200-I/O-MII, or C7200-I/O in all Cisco 7200 series routers (including the Cisco 7206 and Cisco 7206VXR as router shelves in a Cisco AS5800 universal access server); however, when you install an I/O controller with a Fast Ethernet port in a Cisco 7202, the system software automatically disables the port.

These I/O controllers also operate with the NPE-G1 on a VXR chassis, but an I/O controller is not necessary because the NPE-G1 contains its own onboard controller. Installing an I/O controller in a chassis with the NPE-G1 activates the console and auxiliary ports on the I/O controller and automatically disables the console and auxiliary ports on board the NPE-G1. However, you can still use the Flash Disk slots and Ethernet ports on both the NPE-G1 and I/O controller when both cards are installed.

For the Cisco 7202, the following message appears in the system banner if an I/O controller with the Fast Ethernet port is installed in the system:

%C7200-3-UNSUPPORTED: FE in slot0 is not supported on C7202 chassis

If the above message appears, the Fast Ethernet port on the I/O controller is automatically disabled. If the above message does not appear, your Cisco 7202 has an installed I/O controller without the Fast Ethernet port.

When you use the I/O controller that is equipped with an MII port and an RJ-45 port (C7200-I/O-FE), only one port can be configured for use at a time.

If you order an I/O controller as a spare for a Cisco uBR7200 series router, use the Product Numbers listed in Table 2 for the Cisco uBR7200 series. These I/O controllers have the boot helper (boot loader) image used by a Cisco uBR7200 series router loaded on the Flash memory SIMMs. Cisco 7200 series I/O controller spares (C7200-I/O-FE-MII=, C7200-I/O-FE=, and C7200-I/O=) do not have the Cisco uBR7200 series boot helper image loaded on the Flash memory SIMMs.

The C7200-I/O-FE-MII I/O controller has reached its end-of-life and is no longer an orderable product as of April 1998. The C7200-I/O-FE I/O controller has reached its end-of-life and is no longer an orderable product as of December 2000.

The UBR7200-I/O-FE controller for the Cisco uBR7200 series routers supports only the 48 MB version of the Flash Disk.


Note Certain Cisco hardware products have incorporated a hardware change that is transparent for most users. However, an anomaly has been identified when this updated Cisco hardware is used in conjunction with certain releases of Cisco IOS software. (See the "Troubleshooting Using the show interfaces fastethernet Command" section for an explanation of this anomaly and a workaround procedure.)

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.

Electrostatic Discharge Prevention

Electrostatic discharge (ESD) damages equipment and impairs electrical circuitry. ESD occurs when printed circuit boards are improperly handled and results in complete or intermittent failures.

The network processing engine or network services engine, I/O controller, port adapters, and Cisco uBR7200 series cable modem cards consist of a printed circuit board that is fixed in a metal carrier. Electromagnetic interference (EMI) shielding, connectors, and a handle are integral components of the carrier. Handle the network processing engine or network services engine, I/O controller, port adapters, and Cisco uBR7200 series cable modem cards by their carrier edges and handles; never touch the printed circuit board or connector pins.

Figure 14 shows the location of a printed circuit board in a network processing engine, network services engine, I/O controller, or Cisco uBR7200 series cable modem card metal carrier. Do not touch the printed circuit board when handling any of the components.

Printed circuit board


Although the metal carrier helps to protect the printed circuit boards from ESD, wear a preventive antistatic strap whenever handling the network processing engine or network services engine, I/O controller, port adapters, or Cisco uBR7200 series cable interface line cards. Ensure that the strap makes good skin contact, and connect the strap's clip to an unpainted chassis surface to safely channel unwanted ESD voltages to ground.

If no wrist strap is available, ground yourself by touching the metal part of the chassis.


Caution Make sure to tighten the captive installation screws on the network processing engine or network services engine, Cisco uBR7200 series cable modem cards, and the I/O controller (use a number 2 Phillips or a 3/16-inch flat-blade screwdriver). These screws prevent accidental removal, provide proper grounding for the router, and help to ensure that the network processing engine or network services engine, Cisco uBR7200 series cable modem cards, and the I/O controller are properly seated in the router midplane.

Following are guidelines for preventing ESD damage:

Always use an ESD wrist strap or ankle strap when installing or replacing the network processing engine or network services engine, I/O controller, port adapters, or Cisco uBR7200 series cable modem cards. Ensure that the ESD strap makes contact with your skin.

Handle the network processing engine or network services engine, I/O controller, port adapters, or Cisco uBR7200 series cable modem cards by their metal carrier edges and handles only; avoid touching the printed circuit board components or any connector pins.

When removing the network processing engine or network services engine, I/O controller, port adapters, or Cisco uBR7200 series cable modem cards, place them on an antistatic surface with the printed circuit board components facing upward, or in a static shielding bag. If you are returning an I/O controller, network processing engine or network services engine, port adapter, or Cisco uBR7200 series cable modem card to the factory, immediately place it in a static shielding bag.


Caution Periodically check the resistance value of the antistatic strap. The measurement should be within the range of 1 and 10 megohms (Mohms).

Removing and Replacing the Input/Output Controller


Warning Only trained and qualified personnel should be allowed to install or replace this equipment.
Statement 1030

To see translations of the warnings that appear in this publication, refer to the Regulatory Compliance and Safety Information document that accompanied this device.


The following sections explain how to remove and replace an I/O controller in Cisco 7200 series routers or Cisco uBR7200 series routers:

Copying the Configuration File to a TFTP Server

Powering Down the Router and Disconnecting Input Power

Removing the Input/Output Controller

Replacing an Input/Output Controller

Reconnecting Input Power and Powering Up the Router

Downloading the Saved Configuration from the TFTP Server


Note The procedures for removing and replacing an I/O controller in all Cisco 7200 series routers are the same. Therefore, the illustrations and procedures in the following sections apply to Cisco 7200 VXR routers and Cisco 7200 routers (including the Cisco 7206 and 7206VXR as router shelves in the Cisco AS5800 universal access server) unless indicated otherwise.

The procedures for removing and replacing an I/O controller in Cisco uBR7200 series routers are the same as for the platforms mentioned above; however, to show differences in the chassis and I/O controller location, separate illustrations are provided for Cisco uBR7200 series routers.


Copying the Configuration File to a TFTP Server

Before you replace the I/O controller, be sure to copy the router running configuration to a TFTP file server so that you can retrieve it later; otherwise, you will have to reenter your configuration manually.

Before copying the router configuration file to a TFTP file server, check the following items:

A console terminal is connected to the console port on the I/O controller, or a Telnet session is established to the router.

The router is connected to a network supporting a file server (remote host).

The remote host supports the TFTP application.

You have the name or address of the remote host.

To copy the router's configuration file to a remote host, complete the following steps:


Step 1 Make sure you are at the privileged level of the EXEC command interpreter (check the system prompt for a pound sign [#]). If the system prompt does not have a pound sign (#), enter enable, and then your password.

Step 2 Use the ping command to check the connection between the router and the remote host.

Step 3 Enter the show running-config command to display the router's running configuration. Ensure that the configuration information is complete and correct. If it is not, use the configure command to add or modify the existing configuration. Then enter the copy running-config startup-config command to save the retrieved configuration in NVRAM. NVRAM uses lithium batteries to maintain its contents when disconnected from power.


Note Refer to the appropriate software documentation listed in the "Related Documentation" section for descriptions of the configuration options available for the system and individual interfaces, and for specific configuration instructions.


Step 4 Enter the copy startup-config tftp command. The EXEC command interpreter prompts you for the name or IP address of the remote host that is to receive the configuration file. (The prompt might include the name or address of a default file server.)

Router# copy startup-config tftp
Remote host []? 

Step 5 Enter the name or IP address of the remote host. In the following example, the name of the remote host is servername:

Router# copy startup-config tftp
Remote host []? servername
Translating "servername"...domain server (10.1.1.1) [OK]

Step 6 The EXEC command interpreter prompts you for the name of the file that will contain the configuration. By default, the system appends -confg to the router's name to create the new filename. Press Return to accept the default filename, or enter a different name for the file before pressing Return. In the following example, the default is accepted:

Name of configuration file to write [Router-confg]?
Write file Router-confg on host 10.1.1.1? [confirm]
Writing Router-confg..... 

Step 7 Before the router executes the copy process, it displays the instructions you entered for confirmation. If the instructions are not correct, enter n (no), and press Return to stop the process. To accept the instructions, press Return, or y, and then Return; the system begins the copy process. In the following example, the default is accepted:

Write file Router-confg on host 10.1.1.1? [confirm]
Writing Router-confg: !!!! [ok]

While the router copies the configuration to the remote host, it displays a series of exclamation points (!!!) or periods (. . .). The series of exclamation points (!!!!) and [ok] indicate that the operation is successful. A display of periods (. . .) and [timed out] or [failed] indicates a failure, which would probably be because of a network fault or the lack of a writable, readable file on the remote file server.

Step 8 Check the result of the copy process.

If the display indicates that the process was successful (with the series of exclamation points (! ! !) and [ok]), the copy process is complete. The configuration file is safely stored in the temporary file on the remote file server.

If the display indicates that the process failed (with the series of periods ( . . .) as shown in the following example) your configuration was not saved:

Writing Router-confg ..... 

Step 9 If your configuration was not saved, repeat the preceding steps, or select a different remote file server and repeat the preceding steps. If you are unable to copy the configuration to a remote host successfully, contact your network administrator or see the "Obtaining Documentation and Submitting a Service Request" section for instructions on contacting technical assistance.


This completes the procedure for copying the configuration file to a TFTP server. Proceed to the next section, "Powering Down the Router and Disconnecting Input Power."

Powering Down the Router and Disconnecting Input Power

Complete the steps in the following sections to power down the router and disconnect input power.


Warning This unit might have more than one power cord. To prevent the risk of electric shock, disconnect the two power cords before servicing the unit. Statement 83

Powering Down the Router

To power down a Cisco 7200 series router or Cisco uBR7200 series router, complete the following steps:


Step 1 At the rear of the router, place the power switch on the power supply in the OFF (O) position. Repeat this action if a second power supply is installed in the router.

Step 2 Observe the following items:

The green OK LED on the power supply goes off.

The fans stop operating.

The LEDs on the I/O controller go off.

The LEDs on the port adapters go off.

On a Cisco uBR7200 series router, the LEDs on the cable modem cards go off.


Caution When the power switch on a Cisco uBR7200 series power supply is turned to the OFF (O) position, the power supply enters a reset cycle for 90 seconds. Wait at least 90 seconds before turning the power switch back to the ON (|) position. If you do not wait the full 90 seconds, the power supply will not restart.


Caution Wait at least 30 seconds before powering on a Cisco 7200 series router, after you have powered it off.


This completes the procedure for powering down a Cisco 7200 series router or Cisco uBR7200 series router.

Disconnecting DC-Input Power

Before completing any of the following steps, and to prevent short-circuit or shock hazards, ensure that power is removed from the DC circuit. To ensure that all power is off, locate the circuit breaker on the panel board that services the DC circuit, switch the circuit breaker to the off position, and tape the switch handle of the circuit breaker in the off position.


Warning When installing the unit, the ground connection must always be made first and disconnected last.
Statement 42
To see translations of the warnings that appear in this publication, refer to the Regulatory Compliance and Safety Information document that accompanied this device.


To disconnect DC-input power from a Cisco 7200 series router or Cisco uBR7200 series router, complete the following steps:


Step 1 Turn off the power source and disconnect the -V and +V leads from the power source. You can leave the ground cable connected.

Step 2 Remove the devices securing the -V and +V leads:

For a Cisco 7200 series router, remove the cable tie that secures the -V, +V, and ground leads to the power supply faceplate. Save the cable tie.


Note The cable tie that accompanied your Cisco 7200 series DC-input power supply can be removed and replaced on the power supply without the use of a tool. If you secured the DC-input power supply leads to the power supply faceplate using a different type of cable tie, use a wire stripper to cut that cable tie from the power supply.


For a Cisco uBR7200 series router, use a 7-mm wrench or nut driver (or adjustable wrench) to loosen and remove the two M4 nuts from the strain-relief cover that secures the -V and +V leads to the power supply faceplate. Remove the strain-relief cover. (See Figure 18.)

Step 3 Using a 3/16-inch flat-blade screwdriver, loosen the screw below the +V lead receptacle, and pull the lead from the connector. (For a Cisco 7200 series router, see Figure 19. For a Cisco uBR7200 series router, see Figure 20.)

For Cisco 7200 series routers, repeat this step for the -V lead and the ground lead.

For Cisco uBR7200 series routers, repeat this step for the -V lead only. Using an 8-mm wrench or nut driver (or adjustable wrench), loosen and remove the two M5 nuts that secure the two-hole grounding lug to the grounding receptacle, and pull the grounding lug and lead from the receptacle.


Note The color coding of the DC-input power supply leads depends on the color-coding of the DC power source at your site. Typically, green or green/yellow is used for ground, black is used for +V (return), and red or white is used for -V. Make certain that the lead color-coding you choose for the DC-input power supply matches the lead color-coding used at the DC power source.

Removing the Input/Output Controller


Note Before removing the I/O controller, save the router configuration to a TFTP file server.
(See the "Copying the Configuration File to a TFTP Server" section.)


To remove an I/O controller from a Cisco 7200 series router or Cisco uBR7200 series router, complete the following steps:


Step 1 Power down the router and disconnect the input power cable. (See the "Powering Down the Router and Disconnecting Input Power" section.)

Step 2 Attach an ESD-preventive wrist strap between you and an unfinished chassis surface.

Step 3 Disconnect the cables from the I/O controller console, auxiliary, and Fast Ethernet
(if present) ports. (For a Cisco 7200 series router, see Figure 21. For a Cisco uBR7200 series router, see Figure 22.)

Step 4 Remove the Flash Disk or Flash memory cards (if present) from the I/O controller PC Card slots. (See the "Installing and Removing a Flash Memory Card or Flash Disk" section.)

Step 5 Using a number 2 Phillips or a 3/16-inch flat-blade screwdriver, loosen the two captive installation screws on the faceplate of the I/O controller. (For a Cisco 7200 series router, see Figure 21. For a Cisco uBR7200 series router, see Figure 22.)


Note If you have difficulty installing a processing engine or I/O controller in the lowest slot of a Cisco 7200 VXR router that is rack-mounted, remove the port adapters, processing engine and I/O controller from the chassis and reinstall them. Install the processing engine and I/O controller in the lowest slots first, then populate the slots above them, in a bottom-to-top order.


Step 6 Grasp the I/O controller handle and carefully pull the I/O controller from its chassis slot.


Caution Handle the I/O controller by the carrier edges and handle only; never touch the printed circuit board components or connector pins. (See Figure 14.)

Step 7 Place the I/O controller on an antistatic surface, or in a static shielding bag, with its components facing upward. If you are returning the I/O controller to the factory, immediately place it in a static shielding bag.


This completes the procedure for removing an installed I/O controller.

Replacing an Input/Output Controller

To install a new I/O controller in the router, complete the following steps:


Step 1 Ensure that the router is powered down and its input power cable is disconnected from the router and the power source. (See the "Powering Down the Router and Disconnecting Input Power" section.)

Step 2 Attach an ESD-preventive wrist strap between you and an unfinished chassis surface.

Step 3 Remove the I/O controller from its static shielding bag.

Step 4 Using both hands, grasp the I/O controller by its metal carrier edges and orient the I/O controller so that its printed circuit board components are upward. (See Figure 14.)


Caution Handle the I/O controller by the carrier edges and handle only; never touch the printed circuit board components or connector pins.

Step 5 Align the left and the right edge of the I/O controller printed circuit board between the I/O controller slot guides. (For a Cisco 7200 series router, see Figure 23. For a Cisco uBR7200 series router, see Figure 24.)


Note If you have difficulty installing a processing engine or I/O controller in the lowest slot of a
Cisco 7200 VXR router that is rack-mounted, remove the port adapters, processing engine and I/O controller from the chassis and reinstall them. Install the processing engine and I/O controller in the lowest slots first, then populate the slots above them, in a bottom-to-top order.

Caution Do not align the I/O controller metal carrier between the slot guides. Doing so damages components on the I/O controller printed circuit board as you slide the I/O controller into its chassis slot.

Step 6 Gently slide the I/O controller all the way into its chassis slot until you feel the connectors make contact with the router midplane.

Step 7 Seat the I/O controller in the router midplane by tightening its captive installation screws with a number 2 Phillips or a 3/16-inch flat-blade screwdriver.

Step 8 Connect the cables to the I/O controller console, auxiliary, and Fast Ethernet (if present) ports. (For a Cisco 7200 series router, see Figure 21. For a Cisco uBR7200 series router, see Figure 22.) (See the "Connection Equipment and Port Signaling" section.)

Step 9 Replace the Flash Disk or Flash memory cards (if present) in the PC Card slots. (See the "Installing and Removing a Flash Memory Card or Flash Disk" section.)


This completes the procedure for replacing the I/O controller in a Cisco 7200 series router or Cisco uBR7200 series router.

Reconnecting Input Power and Powering Up the Router

The following procedures explain how to reconnect input power to a Cisco 7200 series router or Cisco uBR7200 series router, power up the router, and verify a successful system boot.


Warning Read the installation instructions before you connect the system to its power source.
Statement 10

To see translations of the warnings that appear in this publication, refer to the Regulatory Compliance and Safety Information document that accompanied this device.


Reconnecting AC-Input Power

To reconnect AC-input power to a Cisco 7200 series router or Cisco uBR7200 series router, complete the following steps:


Step 1 At the rear of the router, check that the power switch on the power supply is in the OFF (O) position.

Step 2 Slide the cable-retention clip up (Cisco 7200 series) or to the left (Cisco uBR7200 series), away from the AC receptacle, and plug in the power cable. (For a Cisco 7200 series router, see Figure 25. For a Cisco uBR7200 series router, see Figure 26.)

Step 3 Secure the cable in the power supply AC receptacle by sliding the cable-retention clip down (Cisco 7200 series) or to the right (Cisco uBR7200 series), until it snaps around the connector. The cable-retention clip provides strain relief for the AC power cable.

Step 4 Plug the AC power supply cable into the AC power source.


Note For Cisco 7200 series routers, each AC-input power supply operating at 120 VAC requires a minimum of 5A service.
For Cisco uBR7200 series routers, each AC-input power supply operating at 120 VAC requires a minimum of 7A service.
We recommend powering Cisco 7200 series routers and Cisco uBR7200 series routers from a 120 VAC, 15A receptacle United States (240 VAC, 10A international) at the power source.


Step 5 Repeat Step 1 through Step 4 if a second power supply is installed.


This completes the steps for reconnecting AC-input power to a Cisco 7200 series router or Cisco uBR7200 series router. Proceed to the "Powering Up the Router" section.

Reconnecting DC-Input Power


Note The color-coding of the DC-input power supply leads depends on the color-coding of the DC power source at your site. Typically, green or green/yellow is used for ground, black is used for +V (return), and red or white is used for -V. Make certain the lead color-coding you choose for the DC-input power supply matches the lead color-coding used at the DC power source.



Warning Before completing any of the following steps, and to prevent short-circuit or shock hazards, ensure that power is removed from the DC circuit. To ensure that all power is off, locate the circuit breaker on the panel board that services the DC circuit, switch the circuit breaker to the off position, and tape the switch handle of the circuit breaker in the off position.

To reconnect DC-input power to a Cisco 7200 series router or Cisco uBR7200 series router, complete the following steps:


Step 1 Ensure that the -V and +V leads are disconnected from the power source.

Step 2 At the rear of the router, check that the power switch on the power supply is in the OFF (O) position. (For a Cisco 7200 series router, see Figure 27. For a Cisco uBR7200 series router, see Figure 28.)

Step 3 If necessary, use a wire stripper to strip approximately 0.55 inch (14 mm) from the -V, +V, and ground leads. (See Figure 29.)

Figure 29 Stripping the DC-Input Leads

1

0.55 in. (14 mm)

   


Note The ground lead for a Cisco uBR7200 series DC-input power supply consists of a two-hole grounding lug that connects to an M5 grounding receptacle; you do not need to strip this ground lead.


Step 4 Attach the ground lead:

For a Cisco 7200 series router, insert the stripped end of the ground lead all the way into the ground lead receptacle on the DC-input power supply, and tighten the receptacle screw using a 3/16-inch flat-blade screwdriver. (See Figure 27.)

For a Cisco uBR7200 series router, connect the two-hole grounding lug on the grounding lead to the M5 grounding receptacles using the M5 nuts. Tighten the nuts using the 8-mm wrench or nut driver (or adjustable wrench). (See Figure 28.)

Step 5 Insert the stripped end of the +V lead all the way into the +V lead receptacle and tighten the receptacle screw using the same 3/16-inch flat-blade screwdriver. Repeat Step 5 for the -V lead.


Note Make sure that the entire stripped end of each lead is inserted all the way into its receptacle. If any exposed wire at the stripped end of a lead is visible after you insert the lead into its receptacle, remove the lead from the receptacle, use the wire stripper to cut the stripped end of the lead, and repeat Step 3 through Step 5.


Step 6 After tightening the receptacle screw or nuts for the ground, +V, and -V DC-input leads, secure the leads to the power supply faceplate:

For a Cisco 7200 series router, use the cable tie you saved earlier in this procedure to secure the three leads.

For a Cisco uBR7200 series router, run the +V and -V leads between the two strain-relief studs on the power supply faceplate. (See Figure 28.)


Note For Cisco 7200 series routers, when securing the ground, +V, and -V DC-input leads to the power supply faceplate, leave a small service loop in the ground lead to ensure that it is the last lead to disconnect from the power supply if a great deal of strain is placed on all three leads. (See Figure 27.)

A service loop is not required in the lead attached to the grounding lug on Cisco uBR7200 series routers, because this lead is separate from the +V and -V leads and is secured by two M5 nuts to the M5 receptacles.


Step 7 For a Cisco uBR7200 series router, replace the strain-relief cover over the +V and -V leads and secure the cover to the strain-relief studs using the two M4 nuts with the 7-mm wrench or nut driver (or adjustable wrench). (See Figure 30.)

Step 8 Connect the ground, +V, and -V leads to the power source.


Note For Cisco 7200 series routers, each DC-input power supply operating at - 48 VDC in North America requires a minimum of 13A service. Each DC-input power supply operating at -60 VDC in the European Union requires a minimum of 8A service.

For Cisco uBR7200 series routers, each DC-input power supply rating is 14A, 700 volt amperes (VA).



Warning This product relies on the building's installation for short-circuit (overcurrent) protection. Ensure that a listed and certified fuse or circuit breaker, 35A minimum 60 VDC, is used on all current-carrying conductors. Statement 13

To see translations of the warnings that appear in this publication, refer to the Regulatory Compliance and Safety Information document that accompanied this device.


Step 9 Repeat Step 1 through Step 8 if a second power supply is installed.


This completes the steps for reconnecting DC-input power to a Cisco 7200 series router or Cisco uBR7200 series router.

Powering Up the Router

To power up a Cisco 7200 series router or Cisco uBR7200 series router that has an installed AC-input or DC-input power supply, complete the following steps:


Step 1 Check for the following:

Each port adapter is inserted in its slot, and its respective port adapter lever or retention clip is in the locked position.

The network processing engine or network services engine and the I/O controller are inserted in their respective slots, and their captive installation screws are tightened.

All network interface cables are connected to the port adapters.

Each cable modem card is inserted in its slot, and its respective captive installation screws are tightened (Cisco uBR7200 series only).

If present, a Flash memory card is properly installed in its PC card slot.

Each AC-input power cable is connected and secured with the cable-retention clip (AC-input power supplies only).

For a Cisco 7200 series router, each DC lead is connected and secured to the power supply faceplate with a cable tie; for a Cisco uBR7200 series router, each DC lead is connected with M5 nuts for the grounding receptacle and the strain-relief cover over the +V and -V leads (DC-input power supplies only).

Each DC lead is connected and secured to the power source (DC-input power supplies only).

Ensure that the tape (that you applied earlier) is removed from the circuit breaker switch handle, and power is restored by moving the circuit breaker handle to the ON position (DC-input power supplies only).

The console terminal is turned on.


Caution When the power switch on a Cisco uBR7200 series power supply is turned to the OFF (O) position, the power supply enters a reset cycle for 90 seconds. Wait at least 90 seconds before turning the power switch back to the ON (|) position. If you do not wait the full 90 seconds, the power supply does not restart.

Step 2 At the rear of the router, place the power switch on the power supply in the ON (|) position. Repeat this step if a second power supply is installed in the router. The green OK LED on the power supply comes on.

Step 3 Listen for the fans; you should immediately hear them operating.

Step 4 During the boot process, observe the system LEDs. The LEDs on most of the port adapters and Cisco uBR7200 series cable modem cards go on and off in irregular sequence. Some may come on, go out, and come on again for a short time. On the I/O controller, the IO POWER OK LED comes on immediately.

Step 5 Observe the initialization process. When the system boot is complete (a few seconds), the network processing engine or network services engine begins to initialize the port adapters, Cisco uBR7200 series cable modem cards, and the I/O controller. During this initialization, the LEDs on each port adapter behave differently (most flash on and off). The enabled LED on each port adapter and Cisco uBR7200 series cable modem card comes on when initialization is completed, and the console screen displays a script and system banner similar to the following display:

This completes the procedures for connecting input power and powering up the router.

Downloading the Saved Configuration from the TFTP Server

After you install a new I/O controller in the router and verify a successful router boot, you must retrieve the router configuration from the TFTP server and copy it to NVRAM. Use the copy tftp running-config command to copy the saved configuration from the TFTP file server. The system prompts you for a host name and address, the name of the configuration file stored on the host, and confirmation to reboot using the remote file.

If you replaced an I/O controller without the Fast Ethernet port with an I/O controller with the Fast Ethernet port, you will most likely want to configure the new interface after retrieving the router configuration from the TFTP server and copying it to NVRAM.

Before retrieving the router configuration file from the TFTP file server, check the following:

A console terminal is connected to the console port on the I/O controller, or a Telnet session is established to the router.

The router is connected to a network supporting a file server (remote host).

The remote host supports the TFTP application.

You have the name or address of the remote host.

Before configuring the new interface on the I/O controller, be prepared with the following information:

Protocols and encapsulations you plan to use on the new interface

Protocol-specific information, such as IP addresses, if you will configure the interface for IP routing

For complete descriptions of interface commands and the configuration options available for Cisco 7200 series and Cisco uBR7200 series-related interfaces, refer to the documentation resources listed in the "Related Documentation" section.

To retrieve the saved router configuration from the remote host, complete the following steps:


Step 1 Make sure that you are at the privileged level of the EXEC command interpreter (check the system prompt for a pound sign [#]). If the system prompt does not have a pound sign (#), enter enable, press Return, and then enter your password.


Note Until you retrieve the saved configuration, the router runs from the default configuration in NVRAM. Therefore, any passwords that were previously configured on the system are not valid until you retrieve the configuration.


Step 2 Use the ping command to check the connection between the router and the remote host (the remote file server to which you copied the configuration file).

Step 3 At the system prompt, enter the copy tftp running-config command and press Return to enter configuration mode. Specify that you will configure the system from a network device (instead of from the console terminal, which is the default).

Router# copy tftp running-config

Step 4 The system prompts you to select a host or network configuration file. The default is host; press Return to accept the default.

Host or network configuration file [host]?

Step 5 The system prompts you for the IP address of the host. Enter the IP address or name of the remote host.

IP address of remote host [255.255.255.255]? 10.1.1.1

Step 6 The system prompts you for the name of the configuration file. When the system copies the file to the server, the default is to use the name of the router with the suffix -confg (router-confg in the following example). If you specified a different filename when you copied the configuration, enter that filename; otherwise, press Return to accept the default.

Name of configuration file [router-confg]?

Step 7 Before the system reboots with the new configuration, it displays the instructions you entered for confirmation. If the instructions are not correct, enter n (no), and then press Return to cancel the process. To accept the instructions, press Return, or y, and then Return.

Configure using router-confg from 10.1.1.1? [confirm]
Booting router-confg from 10.1.1.1: ! ! [OK - 874/16000 bytes]

While the router retrieves and boots from the configuration on the remote host, the console display indicates whether or not the operation was successful. A series of exclamation points (!!!! ) and [OK] (as shown in the preceding example) indicate that the operation was successful. A series of periods ( . . ). and [timed out] or [failed] indicate a failure (which would probably be due to a network fault or an incorrect server name, address, or filename). The following is an example of a failed attempt to boot from a remote server:

Booting Router-confg ..... [timed out]

If the display indicates that the process was successful, proceed to the next step.

If the display indicates that the process failed, verify the name or address of the remote server and the filename, and repeat the preceding steps. If you are unable to retrieve the configuration, contact your network administrator or see the "Obtaining Documentation and Submitting a Service Request" section for instructions on contacting Cisco technical assistance.

Step 8 Enter the show running-config command to display the currently running configuration on the terminal. Review the display and ensure that the configuration information is complete and correct. If it is not, verify the filename and repeat the preceding steps to retrieve the correct file, or use the configure command to add or modify the existing configuration. (Refer to the appropriate software documentation for descriptions of the configuration options available for the system and individual interfaces and specific configuration instructions.)

Step 9 When you have verified that the currently running configuration is correct, enter the copy running-config startup-config command to save the retrieved configuration in NVRAM. Otherwise, the new configuration will be lost when you restart the system.


This completes the procedure for downloading the saved router configuration from the remote host. Proceed to the following section, "Configuring the I/O Controller Interfaces," if you installed an I/O controller with an Ethernet, Fast Ethernet, or Gigabit Ethernet interface. If you installed an I/O controller without any Ethernet interfaces, this completes the procedure for replacing the I/O controller in a Cisco 7200 series router or Cisco uBR7200 series router. Proceed to the "Connection Equipment and Port Signaling" section for additional information you might need when replacing an I/O controller in a Cisco 7200 series router or Cisco uBR7200 series router.

Configuring the I/O Controller Interfaces

This section describes the configuration commands you need to configure the different interfaces on your I/O controller. Interface attributes that can be configured on your I/O controller include media type, transmission mode, and speed. Table 12 lists the models, their interface types, default settings, and the commands to change the defaults.

1 The no duplex command returns the transmission mode to the default value set for that port.

2 Enables full-duplex operation, 1000-Mbps speed, and flow control.

3 The no negotiation auto command turns the interface to the force link mode. The force link mode turns off the flow control. Transmission mode and speed remains set at full duplex and 1000 Mbps, respectively.

4 To fully enable autonegotiation on the Ethernet/Fast Ethernet interfaces, use the defaults: duplex auto and speed auto (Fast Ethernet only). For autonegotiation to work correctly, the interface at the other end of the link (link partner) must also be able to support autonegotiation. If autonegotiation is not supported, the Ethernet/FastEthernet interface defaults to half-duplex operation and you may have to configure the duplex manually.



Note The Gigabit Ethernet (GE) port on the C7200-I/O-GE+E does not support the duplex command. The GE port operates at full duplex and cannot be configured for half-duplex mode. The Ethernet port on the same card supports the duplex command but not the speed command. Speed for the Ethernet port is fixed at 10 Mbps.


If you are running a Cisco IOS software release earlier than Cisco IOS Release 12.0 T or Cisco IOS Release 12.0 XE or Cisco IOS Release 12.0 S, you must use the full-duplex command instead of the duplex {full | half | auto} command to change transmission mode. Use the no full-duplex command to return to half-duplex mode. Autoduplex selection is not available in these releases.

Configuring Interface Media Type

For the I/O controller with both an MII and an RJ-45 Fast Ethernet port (C7200-I/O-FE), you need to configure the media type for the port you want to use. The RJ-45 port is the default media type for this I/O controller. Use the media-type command to change the I/O controller media type and the show interfaces command to verify the change.

The following example configures the MII port as the media type for the C7200-I/O-FE:

Router# configure terminal
Enter configuration commands, one per line. End with CNTL/Z.
Router(config)# interface fastethernet 0/0
Router(config-if)# media-type mii
Router(config-if)# no shutdown
Router(config-if)# exit
Router(config)#
%LINEPROTO-5-UPDOWN: Line protocol on Interface FastEthernet0/0, changed 
state to up
%LINK-3-UPDOWN: Interface FastEthernet0/0, changed state to up

Router# show interfaces fastethernet 0/0
FastEthernet0/0 is administratively up, line protocol is up

  (display text omitted)

  Encapsulation ARPA, loopback not set, keepalive not set, hdx, MII

  (display text omitted)

Use the media-type 100baset command to return the media type to the RJ-45 port.


Note In the case of the I/O controller with one Gigabit Ethernet port and one Ethernet port (C7200-I/O-GE+E), both ports are fully independent; therefore, you do not need to configure the media type. The interface addresses for this I/O controller are gigabitethernet 0/0 and ethernet 0/0, respectively.


Configuring Interface Transmission Mode

The default transmission mode for the 10BASET/100BASETX autosensing Ethernet/Fast Ethernet interfaces on the C7200-I/O-2FE/E model is auto.

The default transmission mode for the Fast Ethernet port on the C7200-I/O-FE and C7200-I/O-FE-MII I/O controller models is half-duplex. The auto command option is not available for these models.

Use the duplex {full | half | auto} command to change the Fast Ethernet port transmission mode, and use the show interfaces command to verify the change as follows:

Router# configure terminal 

Enter configuration commands, one per line. End with CNTL/Z.

Router(config)# interface fastethernet 0/0
Router(config-if)# duplex full
Router(config-if)# no shutdown
Router(config-if)# exit
Router(config)#

%LINEPROTO-5-UPDOWN: Line protocol on Interface FastEthernet0/0, changed state to up
%LINK-3-UPDOWN: Interface FastEthernet0/0, changed state to up

Router# show interfaces fastethernet 0/0
FastEthernet0/0 is administratively up, line protocol is up

  (display text omitted)

   Encapsulation ARPA, loopback not set, keepalive not set
            Keepalive set (10 sec) Full-duplex, l00MB, 100BaseTX

Use the no duplex command to return the Fast Ethernet port on the I/O controller to its default transmission mode. (For default listings for each model, see Table 12.)


Note If you are running a Cisco IOS software release earlier than Cisco IOS Release 12.0 T, Cisco IOS Release 12.0 S, or Cisco IOS Release 12.0 XE, you must use the full-duplex command instead of the duplex {full | half | auto} command to change transmission mode. Use the no full-duplex command to return to half-duplex mode.



Note In a Cisco 7206 or Cisco 7206VXR router shelf, the interface specified in the above examples would include a shelf number. For example, the command interface fastethernet 5/0/0 would specify the Fast Ethernet interface on the I/O controller (slot 0) in router shelf 5. For information about the Cisco AS5800 universal access server router shelf, refer to the Cisco AS5800 universal access server documentation listed in the "Related Documentation" section.


Configuring Interface Speed

The I/O controller C7200-I/O-2FE/E has two 10BASET/100BASETX autosensing Ethernet/Fast Ethernet interfaces equipped with RJ-45 ports. To configure these interfaces, use the duplex command and the speed command. The default transmission mode is auto and the default interface speed is auto. To fully enable autonegotiation on the Ethernet/Fast Ethernet interfaces, use the duplex auto command and the speed auto command. To change the default settings, use the following command options for Cisco IOS Release 12.1 E and Cisco IOS Release 12.1 T only:

duplex {full | half | auto}
no duplex

speed {10 | 100 | auto}
no speed

Performing a Basic Configuration

The following procedure explains a basic configuration for an Ethernet, Fast Ethernet, or Gigabit Ethernet interface on the I/O controller. In the following procedure, 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>

Note In Cisco 7200 series routers and Cisco uBR7200 series routers, you identify interfaces by port adapter slot number and interface port number (slot/port). Port adapter slot 0 in Cisco 7200 series routers and Cisco uBR7200 series routers is always reserved for the ports on the I/O controller. Therefore, the address of any port on the I/O controller (if present) in Cisco 7200 series routers or Cisco uBR7200 series routers is always 0/x, where x is the interface port number.

In the Cisco 7206 or Cisco 7206VXR router shelf, you identify interfaces by shelf number, port adapter slot number, and interface port number (shelf/slot/port). The shelf number is a number assigned to the router shelf during the initial configuration of the Cisco AS5800 universal access server. Port adapter slot 0 in the router shelf is also reserved for ports on the I/O controller. Therefore, the address of the port on the I/O controller (if present) in a router shelf is y/0/x, where y is the shelf number and x is the interface port number. For information about the Cisco 7206 and Cisco 7206VXR as router shelves in a Cisco AS5800 universal access server, refer to the Cisco AS5800 universal access server documentation listed in the "Related Documentation" section.



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 Specify the port on the I/O controller interface to configure by entering the interface {ethernet | fastethernet | gigabitethernet} slot/port command. For example,

Router(config)# interface fastethernet 0/0 

Note In a Cisco 7206 or Cisco 7206VXR router shelf, the interface specified in Step 2 would include a shelf number. For example, the command interface fastethernet 5/0/0 would specify the Fast Ethernet interface on the I/O controller (slot 0) in router shelf 5.


Step 3 If IP routing is enabled on the system, assign an IP address and subnet mask to the interface with the ip address subcommand as follows:

Router(config-int)# ip address 10.1.1.10 255.255.255.0 

Step 4 If you installed an I/O controller with the Fast Ethernet port that is equipped with an MII port and an RJ-45 port, use the media-type command to specify the I/O controller media type; the default is the RJ-45 port. The following example shows the MII port being configured as the media type:

Router(config-if)# media-type mii

Note Use the media-type 100baset command to return the media type to the RJ-45 port.


Step 5 Use the duplex command to specify transmission mode (see Table 12 for command options and defaults). The following example shows full-duplex mode being configured:

Router(config-if)# duplex full

Step 6 Change the shutdown state to up and return to configuration mode to enable the interface, as follows:

Router(config-if)# no shutdown
Router(config-if)# exit
Router(config)#

%LINEPROTO-5-UPDOWN: Line protocol on Interface FastEthernet0/0, changed 
state to up
%LINK-3-UPDOWN: Interface FastEthernet0/0, changed state to up

Step 7 Press Ctrl-Z (hold down the Control key while you press Z) or enter end to exit configuration mode and return to the EXEC command interpreter prompt as follows:

Router(config)#
Ctrl-Z
Router#

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

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

Step 9 Use the show interfaces {ethernet | fastethernet | gigabitethernet} command to verify that the interface and line protocol are in the correct state (up) and that the correct media type (MII or RJ-45) and transmission mode (full, half, or auto) are configured on the interface. The following example shows that the C7200-I/O-FE Fast Ethernet interface and line protocol are up, the media type is RJ-45 (shown below as 100BaseTX), and the transmission mode is full-duplex:

Router# show interfaces fastethernet 0/0
FastEthernet0/0 is administratively up, line protocol is up

  (display text omitted)

Encapsulation ARPA, loopback not set, keepalive not set
            Keepalive set (10 sec) Full-duplex, l00MB, 100BaseTX

  (display text omitted)

Note In a Cisco 7206 or Cisco 7206VXR router shelf, the interface specified in this step would include a shelf number.



This completes the procedure for a basic configuration of the I/O controller interfaces.

Using show Commands to Check the Installation

Use show commands to identify the hardware installed in your router, to verify the operation status, to view interface configuration settings, and to troubleshoot your router configuration. The interfaces on your I/O controller are identified by chassis slot number and interface port number (slot/port). The chassis slot number for the I/O controller is always slot 0. Table 13 lists the I/O controller models, their corresponding interfaces, and the interface addressing syntax for each interface.

1 The product number C7200-I/O-FE does not specify MII because both an MII and an RJ-45 port are included.

2 The I/O controller with the product number C7200-I/O-FE-MII has a single MII Fast Ethernet port only. Although still supported by Cisco Systems, this I/O controller with a single MII port is no longer an orderable product as of April 1998.


This remainder of this section provides examples of show commands that pertain to the I/O controller.


Note Slot 0 in Cisco 7200 series routers (including the Cisco 7206 and Cisco 7206VXR as router shelves in a Cisco AS5800 universal access server) and Cisco uBR7200 series routers is always reserved for the Ethernet, Fast Ethernet, or Gigabit Ethernet ports, if present, on the I/O controller.



Note The C7200-I/O-GE+E I/O controller uses independent port numbering for the two different media interfaces on the card. The Gigabit Ethernet port is numbered slot 0, port 0 and the Ethernet port is numbered slot 0, port 0.


Use the show interfaces command to check the status of an interface and to see how it is configured. The following example shows the status and configuration settings for the Gigabit Ethernet interface.

Use the show diag 0 command to identify the I/O controller that is installed in your Cisco 7200 series router or Cisco uBR7200 series router.


Note Because slot 0 in the Cisco 7200 series routers and Cisco uBR7200 series routers is reserved for the I/O controller ports, if you are using an I/O controller without a Fast Ethernet port (C7200-I/O), the system software will not display output for the show diag 0 command.



Note If you have the C7200-I/O-FE or C7200-I/O-FE-MII I/O controller installed in your Cisco 7202 router, the show diag 0 command output indicates that the Fast Ethernet port is disabled.


The following example of the show diag 0 command shows an installed C7200-I/O-FE that is equipped with an MII port and an RJ-45 port:

Router> show diag 0

Troubleshooting Using the show interfaces fastethernet Command

Intel Corporation has changed the specifications for its Peripheral Component Interconnect (PCI) bus with a Fast Ethernet hardware interface. These changes have been incorporated into certain Cisco hardware products. For most users, this change is transparent. However, an anomaly has been identified when this updated Cisco hardware is used in conjunction with certain releases of Cisco IOS software. This section explains the anomaly and how to work around it.

Anomaly Details

When you use the Cisco IOS software show interfaces fastethernet command, output similar to the following is normally displayed:

Router# show interfaces fastethernet [slot/port]

FastEthernet0/0 is up, line protocol is up 
Hardware is DEC21140, address is 00e0.f74f.dc00 (bia 00e0.f74f.dc00)
Internet address is 192.168.255.1
MTU 1500 bytes, BW 100000 Kbit, DLY 100 usec, rely 255/255, load 1/255
Encapsulation ARPA, loopback not set
Keepalive set (10 sec)
Half-duplex, 100Mb/s, MII
ARP type: ARPA, ARP Timeout 04:00:00
Last input never, output 00:00:06, output hang never
Last clearing of "show interface" counters never
Queueing strategy: fifo
Output queue 0/40, 0 drops; input queue 0/75, 0 drops
5 minute input rate 0 bits/sec, 0 packets/sec
5 minute output rate 1000 bits/sec, 0 packets/sec
0 packets input, 0 bytes
Received 0 broadcasts, 0 runts, 0 giants, 0 throttles
0 input errors, 0 CRC, 0 frame, 0 overrun, 0 ignored
0 watchdog, 0 multicast
0 input packets with dribble condition detected
51 packets output, 11872 bytes, 0 underruns
0 output errors, 0 collisions, 0 interface resets
0 babbles, 0 late collision, 0 deferred
0 lost carrier, 0 no carrier
0 output buffer failures, 0 output buffers swapped out

When you enter this command using Cisco IOS software Release 11.1(10) or earlier, or Release 11.2(4) or earlier with updated Cisco hardware, the "overrun" field (shown in bold in the output above) is always zero.

If you use this command because you are troubleshooting potential network problems, you may be expecting to see a number in the overrun field.

Anomaly Workaround

To work around this problem, enter the following Cisco IOS software command to obtain an overrun value:

Router# show controllers fastethernet FE-slot number/0

The following output is normally displayed:

The field that indicates overrun is CSR8 (shown in bold in the output above). This field is in hexadecimal format. To determine an overrun value, take the first four (high-order) digits, drop the first one from the left, convert the remaining three digits to the decimal equivalent, and then divide that number in half.

In the example above, overflows are recorded in CSR8 = 0xE0400000. To determine the overflow value from this example, take the first four (high-order) digits (E040), drop the first digit (E), and convert the remaining number (040) to the decimal equivalent (64). Then divide that number in half. The overrun value in this example is 32.

C7200-I/O-GE+E or C7200-I/O-2FE/E

Erroneous environmental warning messages

The router powers down; the router does not boot

The router crashes or drops back to ROMmon

The router does not recognize the interfaces on the C7200-I/O-GE+E and C7200-I/O-2FE/E I/O controllers

If the router is up, download the correct boot helper (boot loader) image from Cisco.com and replace the down-rev boot helper in boot flash memory.

If the router does not come up (is stuck in ROMmon), boot from other Flash devices (PCMCIA). See Table 11 on page 21 for the correct boot helper (boot loader) image. For information on accessing Cisco.com, see page 82.

 

When booting with an C7200-I/O-GE+E or C7200-I/O-2FE/E I/O controller with 12.0(6)S c7200-boot-mz boot loader image:

Environmental monitor warnings occur every five minutes as the voltages are incorrectly reported as high.

The router displays the following port adapter warning message:

PA-3-NOTSUPPORTEDBYLOADER: Port 
Adapter type 534 in bay 0 is not

Use only the Cisco IOS Release 12.1(10)EC version of the ubr7200-boot-mz image (ubr7200-boot-mz.121-10.EC), or later Release 12.1 EC version, as your boot helper (boot loader) image for the UBR7200-I/O-2FE/E I/O controller.

 

The Cisco uBR7223 or Cisco uBR7246 router does not boot or recognize the UBR7200-I/O-2FE/E I/O controller.

The UBR7200-I/O-2FE/E controller supports only the Cisco uBR7246VXR router.

 

Cannot insert the I/O controller in the chassis

The C7200-I/O-GE+E and the C7200-I/O-2FE/E I/O controllers operate only in Cisco 7204VXR, Cisco 7206VXR, and Cisco uBR7246VXR chassis.

 

The following error message displays:

%c7200-3-IONOTSUPPORTEDBYLOADER: I/O 
controller (type 539) is not supported 
by this boot loader. The I/O 
controller network interfaces will be 
unavailable.

You are attempting to use the standard boot image. These I/O controllers require the c7200-kboot-mz enhanced boot image for full functionality. Update the boot image in boot flash.

NPE-100 and NPE-150

The router powers down immediately after being powered on. (The NPE-100 and NPE-150 require that there be a boot ROM present on the I/O controller; however, the C7200-I/O-GE+E and the C7200-I/O-2FE/E I/O controllers do not have a boot ROM component.)

The NPE-100 and NPE-150 are not supported with the C7200-I/O-GE+E or C7200-I/O-2FE/E I/O controllers.

 

NPE-175

The system software automatically disables the ports on the I/O controller.

The NPE-175 is not supported with the C7200-I/O-GE+E or C7200-I/O-2FE/E I/O controller.

NPE-200

The router boots from ROMMON but a variety of errors occurs when attempting to boot IOS. The router may hang, crash with a PCI bus error, or fail to recognize PCMCIA cards.

To check for the correct NPE-225 version in software, use the show c7200 command. Under CPU EEPROM, look for Hardware Revision 1.3 or higher.

Replace the NPE-225 with the correct version: NPE-225 board label 72-3453-05 rev AO or higher, or faceplate label 800-05418-03 AO or higher.

C7200-I/O-FE

Cisco 7202 router displays the following message:

%c7200-3-UNSUPPORTED: FE in slot0 is 
not supported on a c7202 chassis.

Remove the C7200-I/O-FE I/O controller from the Cisco 7202 router and install a C7200-I/O controller.

 

You cannot upgrade the UBR7200-I/O-FE I/O controller to the Cisco IOS Release 12.1(10)EC boot helper image because of the following error message:

%Error copying 
ubr7200-boot-mz.121-10.EC (No space 
left on device)

You cannot use the Cisco IOS Release 12.1(10)EC version of the ubr7200-boot-mz boot helper (boot loader) image with the UBR7200-I/O-FE I/O controller. Instead, use the boot helper image from Cisco IOS Release 12.0(15)SC.

 

Only one port is operational at a time.

Use only one port, either the RJ-45 port or the MII port, not both. The port adapter has one port, but a choice of ports.


Connection Equipment and Port Signaling

This section contains connection equipment and pinout information for the Ethernet, Fast Ethernet, Gigabit Ethernet, console, and auxiliary ports that are located on the I/O controller.


Note You can install an I/O controller with or without a Fast Ethernet port in Cisco 7200 series routers (including a Cisco 7206 and Cisco 7206VXR as router shelves in a Cisco AS5800 universal access server); however, when you install an I/O controller with a Fast Ethernet port in a Cisco 7202, the system software automatically disables the port. Therefore, the Fast Ethernet port connection equipment and pinout information in this section does not apply to a Cisco 7202 that has an installed I/O controller with a Fast Ethernet port.


Ethernet and Fast Ethernet RJ-45 Connection Equipment

The I/O controller has RJ-45 ports for Ethernet, Fast Ethernet, or autosensing Ethernet and Fast Ethernet connections, depending on your model. The RJ-45 ports support IEEE 802.3(Ethernet), and IEEE 802.3u (Fast Ethernet) interfaces compliant with 10BASET and 100BASETx specifications.

The RJ-45 ports support standard straight-through and crossover Category 5 UTP cables with RJ-45 connectors. (See Figure 35.) Cisco Systems does not supply Category 5 UTP cables; these cables are available commercially.

Figure 31 shows an RJ-45 port and connector. Table 15Table 15 lists the pinouts and signals for the RJ-45 port.

Warning To avoid electric shock, do not connect safety extra-low voltage (SELV) circuits to telephone-network voltage (TNV) circuits. LAN ports contain SELV circuits, and WAN ports contain TNV circuits. Some LAN and WAN ports both use RJ-45 connectors. Use caution when connecting cables. Statement 1021

Note With reference to the RJ-45 pinout in Table 15Table 15, proper common-mode line terminations should be used for the unused Category 5 UTP cable pairs 4/5 and 7/8. Common-mode termination reduces electromagnetic interference (EMI).



Caution To comply with EMI EN55022 Class B regulations, shielded Ethernet cables (p/n 72-1501-01) must be used with the UBR7200-I/O-2FE/E I/O controller in the Cisco uBR7246VXR router. Two shielded cables are included with the UBR7200-I/O-2FE/E I/O controller.

Depending on your I/O controller RJ-45 interface cabling requirements, use the pinouts shown in Figure 32 and Figure 33 for straight-through and crossover twisted-pair cable connections.

Figure 32 Straight-Through Cable Pinout, Ethernet Port to a Hub or Repeater

Figure 33 Crossover Cable Pinout, Ethernet Port to a DTE

To determine whether a UTP cable is a crossover cable or a straight-through cable, hold the two RJ-45 connectors next to each other so you can see the colored wires inside the ends, as shown in Figure 34.

Figure 34 Crossover or Straight-Through Cable Identification

Examine the sequence of colored wires to determine the type of cable, as follows:

Straight-through—The colored wires are in the same sequence at both ends of the cable.

Crossover—The first (far left) colored wire at one end of the cable is the third colored wire at the other end of the cable.

Fast Ethernet MII Connection Equipment

The MII port on the I/O controller is a 40-pin, D-shell-type connector that is configurable for 100 megabits per second (Mbps). The MII port supports IEEE 802.3u interfaces compliant with the 100BASEX and 100BASET standards. The MII connection requires an external transceiver that permits connection to 100BASEFX or 100BASET4 physical media. (See Figure 35.)

Caution Before connecting the transceiver to the MII port on the I/O controller, check the MII transceiver documentation (or with the transceiver manufacturer) to ensure that the transceiver responds to physical sublayer (PHY) address 0; otherwise, anomalies with the MII connection on the I/O controller might occur. (PHY address 0 is defined in the section 22.2.4.4 "PHY Address" of the IEEE 802.3u specification.) If you are unable to determine whether the transceiver responds to physical sublayer (PHY) address 0, we recommend using the transceiver's "Isolation Mode" setting, if present.


Note To determine if an MII transceiver that is already connected to the MII port on the I/O controller responds to PHY address 0, ensure that the I/O controller Fast Ethernet port is configured as up and the MII port is configured as the media type, and then disconnect the transceiver from the MII port. If the Fast Ethernet port goes down, the transceiver responds to PHY address 0.


The type of media you use between the MII connection and your router, switch, or hub determines the appropriate connectors for the network side of your 100BASET transceiver.

Figure 36 shows the pin orientation of the MII port on the I/O controller.

The MII port uses 2-56 screw-type locks, called jackscrews, to secure the cable or transceiver to the port. MII cables and transceivers have knurled thumbscrews that you fasten to the jackscrews on the MII port and tighten with your fingers. Use the jackscrews to secure your MII cable to the MII port.

Gigabit Ethernet GBIC Connection Equipment

The Gigabit Interface Converter (GBIC) port is a 1000-Mbps optical interface in the form of an SC-type duplex port that supports IEEE 802.3z interfaces compliant with the 1000BASEX standard. (See Figure 37.)


Note The GBIC is a separately orderable part and does not ship installed in your I/O controller. You must install the GBIC before you connect the cables to it. (For GBIC installation and cabling instructions, refer to your router installtion guide.)


Figure 37 shows the simplex and duplex SC-type connectors on your multimode or single-mode optical fiber cables. For simplex connectors, two cables are required, one cable for transmit (TX) and a second cable for receive (RX). For duplex connectors, one cable that has both TX and RX connectors is required. You can use either simplex or duplex connectors for the C7200-I/O-GE+E.

2 A mode-conditioning patch cord (product number CAB-GELX-625 or equivalent) is required.

When using the GBIC-LX/LH or WS-G5486 with 62.5-micron diameter MMF, you must install a mode-conditioning patch cord between the GBIC and the MMF cable on both the transmit and the receive ends of the link when link distances are greater than 984 ft (300 m).

We do not recommend using the GBIC-LX/LH or WS-G5486 and MMF with no patch cord for very short link distance (tens of meters). The result could be an elevated bit error rate (BER).

3 Dispersion-shifted single-mode fiber-optic cable.


A mode-conditioning patch cord can be used with the GBIC-LX/LH or WS-G5486 to allow reliable laser transmission between the single-mode laser source on the GBIC and a multimode optical fiber cable. (For more information, refer to the installation and configuration guide for your Cisco 7200 series router.)


Warning Because invisible laser radiation may be emitted from the aperture of the port when no fiber cable is connected, avoid exposure to laser radiation and do not stare into open apertures. Statement 70

Warning Class 1 LED product. Statement 1027


Console and Auxiliary Port Connection Equipment

The I/O controller has a DCE-mode console port for connecting a console terminal, and a DTE-mode auxiliary port for connecting a modem or other DCE device (such as a CSU/DSU or other router) to your router.


Note Both the console and the auxiliary ports are asynchronous serial ports; any devices connected to these ports must be capable of asynchronous transmission. (Asynchronous is the most common type of serial device; for example, most modems are asynchronous devices.)


The I/O controller uses two types of physical media for console port and auxiliary port connections. Table 19 describes the I/O controller console and auxiliary port media type for each model.

Before connecting a terminal to the console port, configure the terminal to match the router console port as follows: 9600 baud, 8 data bits, no parity, 2 stop bits (9600 8N2). After you establish normal router operation, you can disconnect the terminal.

For console and auxiliary port pinouts for each media type, see the "DB-25 Port Cabling and Pinouts" section and the "RJ-45 Port Cabling and Pinouts" section.

DB-25 Port Cabling and Pinouts

The DB-25 ports and connectors conform to the EIA/TIA-232 serial data transfer standard for communications between DTE and DCE equipment. Figure 38 shows console and auxiliary port connections for DB-25 physical media.

DB-25 Console Port Signals and Pinouts

Both Data Set Ready (DSR) and Data Carrier Detect (DCD) are supported on the C7200-I/O, C7200-I/O-FE, and C7200-I/O-FE-MII I/O controller and are active when the system is running. The Request To Send (RTS) signal tracks the state of the Clear To Send (CTS) input. The console port does not support modem control or hardware flow control. Table 20Table 20 lists the DB-25 console port signals for the C7200-I/O, C7200-I/O-FE, and C7200-I/O-FE-MII I/O controllers. The console port requires a straight-through EIA/TIA-232 cable.

RJ-45 Port Cabling and Pinouts

For the C7200-I/O-GE+E and C7200-I/O-2FE/E I/O controllers, both the console and auxiliary ports use rollover cables with RJ-45 connectors. Adapters are available for connection to modems and other external communications equipment. (See Table 23.)

With an I/O controller installed in the router with an NPE-G1, the default console and auxiliary ports are on the I/O controller, and you cannot access the console and auxiliary ports on the NPE-G1.


Note Both the console and the auxiliary ports are asynchronous serial ports; any devices connected to these ports must be capable of asynchronous transmission. (Asynchronous is the most common type of serial device; for example, most modems are asynchronous devices.)


Before connecting a terminal to the console port, configure the terminal to match the router console port as follows: 9600 baud, 8 data bits, no parity, 2 stop bits (9600 8N2). After you establish normal router operation, you can disconnect the terminal.


Note When connecting to an auxiliary port on a Cisco 7200 VXR router, the port will not function at baud rates higher than 19.2k. If the baud rate on the connecting device is set higher than 19.2k, either garbled text or nothing will be displayed on the screen.

Refer to Table 22 for a list of the pins used on the RJ-45-to-DB-25 adapters, used with an RJ-45 cable, to connect terminals and modems to the Cisco7200 series routers. The cable you use may be a roll-over cable or a straight cable.

A roll-over cable can be detected by comparing the two modular ends of the cable. Holding the cables in your hand, side-by-side, with the tab at the back, the wire connected to the pin on the outside of the left plug should be the same color as the pin on the outside of the right plug. If your cable was purchased from Cisco, pin 1 will be white on one connector, and pin 8 will be white on the other (a roll-over cable reverses pins 1 and 8, 2 and 7, 3 and 6, and 4 and 5). (See Figure 39.)

Upgrading the Boot Helper (Boot Loader) Image

The boot helper (boot loader) image resides in Flash memory on the I/O controller and contains a subset of the Cisco IOS software. This image is used to boot your router from the network or to load Cisco IOS images onto the router. This image is also used if the system cannot find a valid system image.

Your boot helper (boot loader) image should correspond to the Cisco IOS release that is running on your router. When you upgrade your Cisco IOS software to the minimum required software release (see Table 11), we recommend that you also upgrade your boot helper (boot loader) image.


Note The Cisco 7200 boot image in Cisco IOS Release 12.0 and all Cisco IOS 12.1 releases is oversized. If you need to upgrade the Cisco 7200 boot image, use the boot image in Cisco IOS Release 12.0 S in place of the boot image in Cisco IOS Release 12.0 or Cisco IOS 12.1 releases.



Note The UBR7200-I/O-2FE/E I/O controller requires the boot helper image from Cisco IOS Release 12.1(10)EC (ubr7200-boot-mz.121-10.EC) or later Release12.1 EC image. Other boot helper images, such as the one from Cisco IOS Release 12.0(15)SC, will not recognize the UBR7200-I/O-2FE/E I/O controller.



Note Make sure you upgrade the boot helper (boot loader) image on any previously purchased I/O controller before attempting to boot a Cisco 7200 VXR or Cisco uBR7246VXR router that has a newly installed NPE-175, NPE-225, NPE-300, or NPE-400.



Note The C7200-I/O-GE+E and C7200-I/O-2FE/E I/O controllers require the c7200-kboot-mz boot image. The UBR7200-I/O-2FE/E I/O controllers require the ubr7200-kboot-mz boot image. Attempting to use the standard boot image results in no network boot interfaces with the following warning message displayed:

%c7200-3-IONOTSUPPORTEDBYLOADER: I/O controller (type 539) is not supported by this boot loader. The I/O controller network interfaces will be unavailable.


To upgrade your boot helper (boot loader) image, obtain the most current boot helper image through Cisco.com and copy the new boot helper image to Flash memory on your router. For information on how to access Cisco.com, see the "Obtaining Documentation and Submitting a Service Request" section. Follow the Software Center link under Service and Support. You need to Login to retrieve files from the Software Center.

To obtain a boot helper (boot loader) image from Cisco.com and upgrade your boot flash memory, do the following:


Step 1 Download the boot helper (boot loader) image from Cisco.com to a Trivial File Transfer Protocol (TFTP) server.

Step 2 Reformat the Flash memory on your router as follows:

router# format bootflash:
Format operation may take a while. Continue? [confirm]
Format operation will destroy all data in "bootflash:".  Continue? [confirm]
Formatting sector ...   
Format of bootflash:complete

Note Reformatting Flash memory erases the current Flash memory contents.


Step 3 Copy the boot helper image from the TFTP server to Flash memory as follows:

router# copy tftp bootflash:
Address or name of remote host []? biff
Source filename []? c7200-boot-mz.120-5.S
Destination filename [c7200-boot-mz.120-5.S]? 
Accessing tftp://biff/c7200-boot-mz.120-5.S...
Loading c7200-boot-mz.120-5.S from 192.168.254.254 (via 
Ethernet4/0):!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

3132516 bytes copied in 28.488 secs (111875 bytes/sec)


This completes the procedure for upgrading your boot helper (boot loader) image. For more detailed instructions on loading and maintaining system images and microcode, including boot helper images, refer to the Configuration Fundamentals Configuration Guide, which is available on Cisco.com.

Installing and Removing a Flash Memory Card or Flash Disk

The I/O controller has two PC Card slots: slot 0 (lower) and slot 1 (upper). (See Figure 41.)


Note For procedures that explain how to remove and replace the PC Card Flash Disk, refer to the Using the Flash Disk document that accompanies every Flash Disk shipped from the factory.



Note To avoid potential problems when you insert spare Flash memory cards in your router, we recommend that you reformat all of your Flash memory cards using the recommended minimum Cisco IOS software release for your platform during your regularly scheduled service times. (See Table 11 on page 21.)

The "Reformatting a Flash Memory Card or Flash Disk" section explains how to reformat a Flash memory card.


To install a Flash memory card in either PC Card slot, complete the following steps:


Step 1 Orient the Flash memory card so that its connector end faces the appropriate slot.
(See Figure 41.)

Step 2 Carefully guide the card into the slot until it mates with the slot connector, and the ejector button for the slot pops out toward you. (See Figure 41.)

Figure 41 Installing and Removing a Flash Memory Card

Note Flash memory cards do not insert all the way into the PC Card slots on the I/O controller; the end of the card protrudes from the I/O controller faceplate. Do not attempt to force the card past this point.

Some older Flash memory cards might have foil tape attached to the outside edge of the card. If you insert one of these cards into the upper PC Card slot (slot 1) of an I/O controller installed in a Cisco uBR7200 series router, it might be difficult to remove the card. You should use a new Flash memory card that does not have the foil tape, remove the foil tape from the older Flash memory card, or, if necessary, use small pliers to remove the Flash memory card.



This completes the procedure for installing a Flash memory card in either PC Card slot.

To remove a Flash memory card from either PC Card slot, complete the following steps:


Step 1 Press the ejector button on the slot. (See Figure 41.)

Step 2 Grasp the card and pull it from the slot.

Step 3 Place the card in an antistatic bag.


This completes the procedure for removing a Flash memory card from either PC Card slot.

Reformatting a Flash Memory Card or Flash Disk

Depending on the circumstances, you might need to use a Flash memory card from another system to copy images or back up configuration files; however, you cannot boot from a Flash memory card that was formatted on another type of system. You must reformat the card before you can use it as a boot source.


Note For procedures that explain how to remove and replace the Flash Disk, refer to the Using the Flash Disk document that accompanies every Flash Disk shipped from the factory.



Note To avoid potential problems when you insert spare Flash memory cards in your router, we recommend that you reformat all of your Flash memory cards using the recommended minimum Cisco IOS software release for your platform during your regularly scheduled service times. (See Table 11 on page 21.)



Caution The following formatting procedure erases all information on the Flash memory card. To prevent the loss of important data that might be stored on a Flash memory card, proceed carefully. If you want to save the data on a Flash memory card, copy the data to a server before you format the card.

The formatting procedure assumes the following:

You have already booted your Cisco 7200 series router or Cisco uBR7200 series router.

You have access to a TFTP server (meaning you know its name and have connectivity to it) and at least one interface is available over which you can access this server, or a secondary Flash memory card.


Note To ensure access to a TFTP server, you need to configure at least one network interface using the setup facility. Refer to the Configuration Fundamentals Configuration Guide publication for instructions on how to configure a network interface using the setup facility.


You know the filename of the image you want to copy to the TFTP server or onto the secondary Flash memory card.

Use the following procedure to reformat a Flash memory card:


Step 1 Insert the Flash memory card into slot 0. (If slot 0 is not available, use slot 1.) See the "Installing and Removing a Flash Memory Card or Flash Disk" section.


Note Throughout this procedure, use slot0 or slot1 to refer to a Flash memory card. Use disk0 or disk1 to refer to a Flash Disk.


Step 2 Copy all the files on the Flash memory card to a TFTP server or a secondary Flash memory card. The following example is for copying files to a TFTP server:

Router> enable
Password: password
Router# copy slot0:image.name tftp
Enter destination file name [image.name]: image.name 
CCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCC 
CCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCC
Address or name of remote host [tftp.server.name]? tftp.server.name 
!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Router#

Step 3 To reformat the Flash memory card, use the format slot0: (or format slot1:) command as follows:

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

Step 4 Copy the files you saved to the TFTP server back to the Flash memory card as follows:

Router# copy tftp slot0
Enter source filename: image.name
20575008 bytes available on device slot0, proceed? [confirm]
address or name of remote host [tftp.server.name]? tftp.server.name
loading new.image from tftp.server.name (via Ethernet1/0):!!!!!!!
!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
