A crimping tool to fit the grounding lug wire receptacle

One grounding wire—6-AWG, 0.162-inch (4.115-mm) diameter, with approximately 0.108-inch (2.743-mm) insulation, for a total wire diameter of approximately 0.27 inches (6.858 mm). The wire length depends on your router location and site environment.

The rack-mount and cable-management kit:

Two rack-mount brackets and one cable-management bracket

Screws: Four 12-24 x 0.5-inch screws, four 8-18 x .37-inch screws for use with a 19-inch rack, four 8 x .375-inch screws for use in a 21-23-inch rack, and one M4 x 20-mm screw

T1 channel service unit/data service unit (CSU/DSU) that converts the High-Level Data Link Control (HDLC) synchronous serial data stream into a T1 data stream with the correct framing and ones density to connect a serial port to a T1 network. (Some telephone systems require a minimum number of 1 bits per time unit in a data stream, called ones density.) Several T1 CSU/DSU devices are available as additional equipment, and most provide a V.35, EIA/TIA-449, or EIA-530 electrical interface.

Prepare for Workbench or Tabletop Installation

For a workbench or tabletop installation, verify the following before installing the router:

The router is off the floor and has adequate ventilation.

An adequate chassis ground (earth) connection exists for the router.

The router has at last 3 inches (7.62 cm) of clearance at the inlet and exhaust vents (sides of router).

The router has 19 inches (48.3 cm) clearance at the front and rear to allow for CompactFlash Disk, SFP Gigabit Interface Converter (GBIC) module, and port adapter replacement or installation, or to access cables or equipment.

The port adapter filler panel is installed if a port adapter is not installed. The slot must not be empty.

For cable-management bracket installation instructions, see page 9.

Prepare for Rack-Mount Installation

Before you begin the rack-mounting tasks, decide whether or not you want to front- or rear-mount the chassis, decide whether or not you want to attach the cable-management bracket, and determine the type of rack—four-post or two-post—that you will be using.

Console and Auxiliary Port Cable Connections


Note Both the console and auxiliary ports are asynchronous serial ports; any devices connected to these ports must be capable of asynchronous transmission. The DCE-mode console port is for connecting a console terminal and the DTE-mode auxiliary port is for connecting a modem or other DCE device (such as a CSU/DSU or other router) to your router.



Step 1 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, 1 stop bit (9600 8N1).

Step 2 Use an auxiliary and console port cable. Use the console cable to connect the terminal to the console port. After you establish normal router operation, you can disconnect the terminal.



Note You must supply your own interface cable between the auxiliary port and the equipment you are connecting. For console and auxiliary port pinouts, see the online Cisco 7301 Installation and Configuration Guide.


Gigabit Ethernet SFP GBIC and RJ-45 Connections

The Cisco 7301 router has three native Gigabit Ethernet interfaces. Each interface consists of three RJ-45 media ports and three SFP GBIC optical fiber ports. The RJ-45 media ports provide 10/100/1000-Mbps connectivity while the SFP GBIC optical fiber ports provide 1000-Mbps connectivity.


Note Any three of the six Gigabit Ethernet ports may be used at the same time.


For more information on SFP GBIC cabling specifications, see the online Cisco 7301 Installation and Configuration Guide and the Gigabit Interface Converter (GBIC) Module and Small Form-Factor Pluggable (SFP) GBIC Module Installation Information and Specifications.

Intra-Building Lightning Protection

Shielded cables which are grounded at both ends are required to be used on the 10/100/1000 Ethernet port in order to be in compliance with requirement R4-11 in GR-1089-Core for a Central Office environment. This is not a requirement for customer premise installations.


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 76


To identify the RJ-45 cable type, hold the two ends of the cable next to each other so you can see the colored wires inside the ends. The straight-through wire type has colored wires in the same sequence at both ends. In the crossover wire type, the first colored wire at the far left is the third colored wire at the other end. The second colored wire at the far left is the sixth colored wire at the other end.

Attach RJ-45 Ethernet cables to the appropriate connector.


Note Both native Gigabit Ethernet ports, SFP GBIC and RJ-45, are reported as Gigabit Ethernet 0/0, Gigabit Ethernet 0/1, and Gigabit Ethernet 0/2 in software. You must use the media-type command to select which media type you want to use before you configure these ports. See the "Configure the Native Gigabit Ethernet Interfaces" section.


SFP GBIC Cabling and Connection Equipment

The Gigabit Ethernet small form-factor pluggable (SFP) GBIC module port is a 1000-Mbps optical interface in the form of an LC-type duplex port that supports IEEE 802.3z interfaces compliant with the 1000BASEX standard. Gigabit Ethernet SFP GBIC models GLC-SX-MM, GLC-LH-SM, and GLC-ZX-SM are supported in the Cisco 7301 router, as are a variety of Coarse Wavelength-Division Multiplexing (CWDM) SFPs, and the Cisco 1000BASE-T (copper) SFP with an RJ-45 port. For cabling distances, specifications, and other information, see the online Gigabit Interface Converter (GBIC) Module and Small Form-Factor (SFP) GBIC Module Installation Information and Specifications. Also see the Coarse Wavelength- Division Multiplexing SFP Compatibility Matrix at http://www.cisco.com/en/US/products/hw/modules/ps4999/

7 Configure the Router

Before configuring the router, determine whether or not you want to use a management tool such as Cisco Security Device Manager.

Cisco Security Device Manager (SDM), version 1.1, is an optional Java-based device-management tool that allows you to configure LAN interfaces, routing, Network Address Translation (NAT), firewalls, Virtual Private Networks (VPNs), and other features without knowledge of the Cisco command-line interface (CLI). You can configure features such as Access Control Lists (ACLs), routing protocols, and other options using SDMs advanced mode.


Note You will need to use CLI commands to configure several features that SDM does not support. SDM does not support the following features: WAN configuration, Gigabit Ethernet (GE) interfaces, AA client, EZ VPN server, QoS,SSHv2, DHCP server configuration options, and usability enhancements.


SDM is preinstalled on your routers Flash Disk or CompactFlash Disk when it is ordered as part of a VPN bundle or as part of a 7xxx VPN bundle. If your router did not ship with SDM preinstalled, you can download a free copy from the Software Center at Cisco.com at http://ww.cisco.com/kobayashi/sw-center/index.shtm. Because SDM uses a GUI, it requires that you access it from a PC using a supported web browser. Go to the Security Device Manager (SDM), Version 1.1 User Note for the 7xxx Routers for more information.

Performing a Basic Configuration Using the Setup Facility

If you do not plan to use AutoInstall, do not connect the router's serial (WAN) cable to the channel service unit/data service unit (CSU/DSU). If the WAN cable is not connected, the router boots from Flash memory and goes automatically into the setup facility.

You can run the setup facility any time you are at the enable prompt (#) by entering the setup command.

If the serial (WAN) cable is connected to the CSU/DSU and the router does not have a configuration stored in NVRAM, the router attempts to run AutoInstall at startup. The router may take several minutes to determine that AutoInstall is not set up to a remote TCP/IP host. Once the router determines that AutoInstall is not configured, it defaults to the setup facility.

Configure Global Parameters

When you first start the setup program, you must configure the global parameters. These parameters are used for controlling system-wide settings. Complete the following steps to enter the global parameters:


Step 1 Connect a console terminal to the console port, and then boot the router.

The system boots from Flash memory. The following information appears after about 30 seconds. When you see this information, you have successfully booted your router:

Press RETURN to get started!

The first two sections of the configuration script (the banner and the installed hardware) appear only at initial system startup. On subsequent uses of the setup facility, the script begins with a System Configuration Dialog as shown in the following example.

--- System Configuration Dialog ---
 
At any point you may enter a question mark '?' for help.
Use ctrl-c to abort configuration dialog at any prompt.
Default settings are in square brackets '[]'.

Step 2 When asked if you want to enter the initial configuration dialog and see the current interface summary, enter yes or press Return:

Would you like to enter the initial configuration dialog? [yes]:

First, would you like to see the current interface summary? [yes]:

In the following example, the summary shows a Cisco 7301 router at first-time startup; that is, nothing is configured. 

Any interface listed with OK? value "NO" does not have a valid configuration
 
Interface 					IP-Address					OK?		Method			Status			Protocol
ATM1/0					unassigned					NO		unset			down			down
FastEthernet1/0					unassigned					NO		unset			down			down

Step 3 Choose which protocols to support on your interfaces. For Internet Protocol (IP)-only installations, you can accept the default values for most of the questions. A typical configuration using IP, IPX, and AppleTalk follows and continues through Step 8:

Configuring global parameters: 

  Enter host name [Router]:

Step 4 Enter enable secret, enable, and virtual terminal passwords:

The enable secret password is a one-way cryptographic secret  
password used instead of the enable password when it exists.

Enter enable secret: barney

The enable password is used when there is no enable secret 
password and when using older software and some boot images.

Enter enable password: betty

Enter virtual terminal password: fred

Step 5 The Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP) is the most widely supported open standard for network management. It provides a means to access and set configuration and run-time parameters of routers and communication servers. SNMP defines a set of functions that can be used to monitor and control network elements.

Enter yes or press Return to accept SNMP management; enter no to refuse it:

Configure SNMP Network Management? [yes]:

Configure Apollo? [no]:

Step 7 For the following queries, enable routing on AppleTalk and IPX:

Configure AppleTalk? [no]: yes
    Multizone networks? [no]: yes

Configure IPX? [no]: yes

Step 8 In most cases you use IP routing. If you are using IP routing, you must also select an interior routing protocol. You can specify only one of two interior routing protocols to operate on your system using the setup facility: Interior Gateway Routing Protocol (IGRP) or Routing Information Protocol (RIP). To configure IP routing, enter yes (the default) or press Return, and then select an interior routing protocol:

Configure IP? [yes]:
    Configure IGRP routing? [yes]:
      Your IGRP autonomous system number [1]: 15

The following sample display includes a continuous listing of all configuration parameters selected in Step 3 through Step 8. Only IP, IPX, and AppleTalk are the selected protocols for this example.

Configure the Native Gigabit Ethernet Interfaces

The Cisco 7301 reports both the RJ-45 and Gigabit Ethernet SFP GBIC interface ports as Gigabit Ethernet 0/0, Gigabit Ethernet 0/1, and Gigabit Ethernet 0/2. Before configuring any of the three interfaces, you must first use the media-type interface command to select the media type, either the SFP GBIC (gbic) or RJ-45 (rj45) port.


Note The Gigabit Ethernet interfaces on the Cisco 7301 do not support the Inter-Switch Link (ISL) VLAN encapsulation protocol. We recommend that customers use the IEEE 802.1Q VLAN encapsulation protocol as an alternative. Where an application requires the use of ISL, this can be provided by the Fast Ethernet or Gigabit Ethernet port adapters.



Note The RJ-45 port is the default media.


Change the Media Type of the Native Gigabit Ethernet SFP GBIC or RJ-45 Ports

To be able to use a particular media port, use Cisco IOS to select the media type. This is done by using the media-type interface command:

media-type { gbic | rj45 }

Example:

interface GigabitEthernet 0/1
	media-type rj45
end

Configure the Interface Transmission and Speed Modes


Step 1 After changing the media type, configure the speed and transmission modes to appropriately match the new interface characteristics. Changing the speed and duplex of a Cisco 7301 router Gigabit Ethernet interface is done using the speed and duplex interface commands.


Note These commands are only applicable when using the RJ-45 media.


speed { 10 | 100 | 1000 | auto }

duplex { full | half | auto }


The following speed/duplex settings are supported:

Media Type          Speed                    Duplex 
------------------------------------------------------- 
RJ45            10, 100, 1000, auto      full, half, auto
GBIC(1)         1000, auto(2)            full, half, auto
-------------------------------------------------------

a. If you are using the no negotiation auto command, the speed and duplex should be set to a value other than auto for correct operation.

b. The only available speed in this mode is 1000 Mbps; there is no difference whether 1000 or auto is selected.

When using the SFP GBIC media, there is also the additional negotiation auto command that is used to enable the IEEE 802.1z Gigabit Ethernet (1000 Mbps) autonegotiation protocol.

Step 2 To turn the negotiation auto feature off (it is on by default), issue the interface command no negotiation auto. This is useful for connecting to other Gigabit Ethernet equipment that does not support 802.1z autonegotiation.



Note The negotiation auto feature is not supported when using the media type rj-45 and will be ignored if implementation is attempted.


The media-type gbic mode will always default to 1000 Mbps. Both full-duplex and half-duplex operation are supported in this mode.

Debug

Cisco IOS provides two commands to provide information on your interfaces: show interface GigabitEthernet 0/X (where X is 0, 1, or 2) and show controllers GigabitEthernet 0/X (where X is 0, 1, or 2).

The output of the show interface command is useful for determining the current operating mode of the interface (speed/duplex/media-type) and the current interface statistics.

The output of the show controller command displays more information specific to the Cisco 7301 router Gigabit Ethernet interface. For example, it shows the detected link status, speed, and duplex, and also determines the current status of autonegotiation and the link partners' abilities (if it is an autonegotiation-capable interface).

The show controller command also displays the current operating state of the driver and the Ethernet controller hardware. The show controller command is a very powerful debugging aid, especially for Cisco engineers should you need help in debugging a problem. If you have any problems with your Gigabit Ethernet interfaces, you will need to provide this information to Cisco for analysis.

Reset the Interface

Should you have a problem with your interface and you wish to try and reset it, use the command:

clear interface GigabitEthernet 0/X    (where X is 0, 1, or 2)

Clear Counters

Interface counters may be cleared (reset) by using the command:

clear counters GigabitEthernet 0/X    (where X is 0, 1, or 2)


Note Using this command will not reset the interface.


Configure Port Adapter Interfaces

Following are the steps for configuring interfaces to allow communication over a LAN or WAN. To configure the interface parameters, you need your interface network addresses and subnet mask information. Consult with your network administrator for this information.


Note Only one port adapter can be installed in the Cisco 7301 at one time. Following are three examples of three different interfaces that might be used.

Ground for ESD wrist strap banana jack



Warning During this procedure, wear grounding wrist straps to avoid ESD damage to the card. Do not directly touch the backplane with your hand or any metal tool, or you could shock yourself. Statement 94.



Note Before removing any port adapter, gracefully shut down the interface so that there is no traffic running through the port adapter when it is removed. Removing a port adapter while traffic is flowing through the ports can cause system disruption.



Step 1 Attach an ESD wrist strap between you and an unpainted chassis surface. For wrist straps with a banana jack, insert the banana jack in its grounding hole located on the front of the chassis, near the STATUS LED and power switch.

Step 2 Remove the port adapter from the chassis slot. Use a Phillips screwdriver to turn the screw holding the port adapter latch. The screw should be loose enough to allow the latch to rotate to an unlocked position (1). The latch can rotate 360o.

Step 3 Grasp the handle and pull the port adapter (2) or blank port adapter from the router.

Step 4 Disconnect all cables from the port adapter.

Step 5 Locate the port adapter slot guides inside the Cisco 7301 router. They are near the top, and are recessed about one-half inch.


Caution The port adapter must slide into the slot guides under the chassis lid. Do not allow the port adapter components to come in contact with the system board or the port adapter could be damaged.

Step 6 Carefully slide the port adapter into the port adapter slot and seat it. When installed, the port adapter input/output panel should be flush with the face of the router.

Step 7 Rotate the port adapter latch to the upright locked position and use a Phillips screwdriver to tighten the latch screw. Loosen the latch screw, if needed, to be able to rotate the latch over the port adapter. Then tighten the latch screw.

Step 8 Reconnect any cables, including the port adapter and power cables, and place the cables through any cable-management bracket or power cable-retention clip.

The Cisco Technical Support Website on Cisco.com features extensive online support resources. In addition, Cisco Technical Assistance Center (TAC) engineers provide telephone support. If you do not hold a valid Cisco service contract, contact your reseller.

Cisco Technical Support Website

Submitting a Service Request

Using the online TAC Service Request Tool is the fastest way to open S3 and S4 service requests. (S3 and S4 service requests are those in which your network is minimally impaired or for which you require product information.) After you describe your situation, the TAC Service Request Tool automatically provides recommended solutions. If your issue is not resolved using the recommended resources, your service request will be assigned to a Cisco TAC engineer. The TAC Service Request Tool is located at this URL:

http://www.cisco.com/techsupport/servicerequest

For S1 or S2 service requests or if you do not have Internet access, contact the Cisco TAC by telephone. (S1 or S2 service requests are those in which your production network is down or severely degraded.) Cisco TAC engineers are assigned immediately to S1 and S2 service requests to help keep your business operations running smoothly.

To open a service request by telephone, use one of the following numbers:

Asia-Pacific: +61 2 8446 7411 (Australia: 1 800 805 227)
EMEA: +32 2 704 55 55
USA: 1 800 553 2447

Definitions of Service Request Severity

To ensure that all service requests are reported in a standard format, Cisco has established severity definitions.

Severity 1 (S1)—Your network is "down," or there is a critical impact to your business operations. You and Cisco will commit all necessary resources around the clock to resolve the situation.

Severity 2 (S2)—Operation of an existing network is severely degraded, or significant aspects of your business operation are negatively affected by inadequate performance of Cisco products. You and Cisco will commit full-time resources during normal business hours to resolve the situation.

Severity 3 (S3)—Operational performance of your network is impaired, but most business operations remain functional. You and Cisco will commit resources during normal business hours to restore service to satisfactory levels.

Severity 4 (S4)—You require information or assistance with Cisco product capabilities, installation, or configuration. There is little or no effect on your business operations.
