This chapter provides a list of parts and tools you need to remove and replace the network processing engine (NPE) or network services engine (NSE) in:

Cisco 7200 series routers, including the Cisco 7200 VXR routers

Cisco uBR7200 series routers

This chapter also includes safety and ESD-prevention guidelines to help you avoid injury to yourself and damage to the equipment. See the "Obtaining Documentation and Submitting a Service Request" section on page iv for ordering and contact information. The following sections are found in this chapter:

Required Tools and Equipment

Software and Hardware Requirements

Table 8-4 lists the minimum software requirements for the NPE-400, NPE-G1, and NPE-G2. Table 8-5 and Table 8-6 list the recommended minimum Cisco IOS software release to ensure proper operation of the network processing engine or network services engine in supported router platforms.

Required Tools and Equipment

You need the following parts and tools to remove and replace an NPE or NSE in Cisco 7200 series routers, Cisco 7200 VXR routers, or Cisco uBR7200 series routers:

A network processing engine or network services engine (NPE-100, NPE-150, NPE-175, NPE-200, NPE-225, NPE-300, NPE-400, NSE-1, NPE-G1, or NPE-G2)

Number 2 Phillips screwdriver and a 3/16-inch flat-blade screwdriver

An 8-mm wrench or nut driver, or adjustable wrench (for connecting a grounding lug to a Cisco uBR7200 series DC-input power supply)

A 7-mm wrench or nut driver, or adjustable wrench (for connecting the DC-input power lead strain-relief cover to a DC-input power supply)

Standard wire stripper (for connecting power to an installed DC-input power supply)

Tape (for securing the switch handle of a DC circuit breaker in the off position)

Your own ESD-prevention equipment or the disposable grounding wrist strap included with all field-replaceable units (FRUs)

An antistatic mat or surface, or static-shielding bag

Cable-management brackets and screws that ship with the NPE-G1 or NPE-G2

If your router is mounted in a 4-post or telco-type rack, make sure you have at least one other person available to assist you with removing the chassis from the rack.

Software and Hardware Requirements

The network processing engine and network services engine have different requirements for both hardware and software. See the "NPE or NSE Requirements" section.


Note Cisco IOS Release 12.2 changed the behavior of the ROM monitor (ROMmon) during the bootup sequence. See "Boot Changes in Cisco IOS Release 12.2" section on page 10-2 for more information.


NPE or NSE Requirements

When installing an NPE-175, NPE-225, NPE-300, NPE-400, NPE-G2, or NSE-1 in a Cisco 7200 VXR router or Cisco uBR7246VXR router that is using a previously purchased I/O controller, you must upgrade the I/O controller boot helper image. The Cisco uBR7225VXR router does not support port adapters or I/O controllers.


Note Instructions for upgrading the boot helper image on the I/O controller are contained in the online Memory Replacement Instructions for the Network Processing Engine or Network Services Engine and Input/Output Controller publication.

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 interface line cards consist of printed circuit boards that are 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 interface line cards by their carrier edges and handles; never touch the printed circuit board or connector pins.

Figure 8-2 shows the location of a printed circuit board in a network processing engine or network services engine, I/O controller, or Cisco uBR7200 series cable interface line 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 channel unwanted ESD voltages safely 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 interface line 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 interface line 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 interface line 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 interface line 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 interface line 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 interface line 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 to 10 megohms (Mohms).
