Wiring Procedure for DC Input

To connect the router to a DC power source, perform the following steps:


Step 1 Remove power from the DC circuit. To ensure that power is removed from the DC circuit, locate the circuit breaker for the DC circuit, switch the circuit breaker to the OFF position, and tape the circuit-breaker switch in the OFF position.


Warning Before performing any of the following procedures, ensure that power is removed from the DC circuit. Statement 1003



Tip Secure all power cabling when installing this unit, to avoid disturbing field-wiring connections.



Warning When stranded wiring is required, use approved wiring terminations, such as closed-loop or spade-type with upturned lugs. These terminations should be the appropriate size for the wires and should clamp both the insulation and conductor. Statement 1002


Step 2 Strip the wires to the appropriate length for the terminals. The strip length is 3/16 to 1/4 inch (5 to 6 mm) for Amp/Tyco number 32957 terminals and 5/16 to 3/8 inch (8 to 9 mm) for Amp/Tyco number 34852 terminals.

Step 3 Crimp the terminals onto the DC power input and safety ground wires.

Step 4 Remove the plastic safety covers from the terminal block. Save the covers for reinstallation after you finish wiring.

Step 5 Connect the wires to the terminal block, starting with the safety ground wire. Connect each wire to the appropriate terminal as shown in Figure 12. Tighten the terminal screws to 10.0 ± 0.5 in-lb (1.1 ± 0.05 N-m).


Warning The illustration shows the DC power supply terminal block. Wire the DC power supply as illustrated. The proper wiring sequence is ground to ground, positive to positive, and negative to negative. The ground wire should always be connected first and disconnected last. Statement 239



Warning An exposed wire lead from a DC-input power source can conduct harmful levels of electricity. Be sure that no exposed portion of the DC-input power source wire extends from the terminal block plug. Statement 122



Caution Do not overtorque the terminal block screws. The recommended torque is 10.0 ± 0.5 in-lb (1.1 ± 0.05 N-m).

Figure 12 DC Power Connections for Cisco 3825 Routers (Typical)

Figure 13 DC Power Connections for Cisco 3845 Routers

Step 6 Install the plastic safety covers over the terminals. (See Figure 14 or Figure 15.)


Warning The safety cover is an integral part of the product. Do not operate the unit without the safety cover installed. Operating the unit without the cover in place will invalidate the safety approvals and pose a risk of fire and electrical hazards. Statement 117


Step 7 Organize and secure the wires using cable ties as shown in Figure 14 or Figure 15. Make sure that the wires do not project above or below the front panel of the router.

Step 8 If a second power supply is installed and intended for use, repeat Step 1 through Step 7 for the second power supply.

Step 9 Turn on power to the DC circuit. Be sure to remove tape used to secure the circuit-breaker switch in the OFF position.

Figure 15 DC Wire Routing and Attachment for Cisco 3845 Routers


Approved Scenarios and Scenarios Not Approved for Dual DC Power Supply Configuration

You can connect a single DC power source to either the A input or the B input. If there are dual power sources, connect one source to the A input and one source to the B input. Both sources must be the same polarity (with respect to ground) and voltage (within 0.25 volts). Do not connect -DC grounded and +DC grounded dual sources to a Cisco 3825 series integrated router.


Caution Dual sources with opposite-polarity grounding damage equipment.

In Figure 16, either the positive source terminal or the negative source terminal is tied to ground.

Figure 16 Connecting to One Source Only—Source A or Source B

In Figure 17, source A and source B share common negative terminal connections.

Figure 17 Connecting Source A and Source B with Common Negative Terminals

In Figure 18, source A and source B share common positive terminal connections. This is allowed only if Va equals Vb (within 0.25 V).


Caution When connecting source A and source B with common positive terminals, if source A and source B voltages are unequal by more than 0.25 V, the higher-voltage source can discharge into the lower-voltage source through the A- and B- input terminals. Excessive discharging currents through these terminals can cause one or both of the dual input DC power supply's internal A- or B- fuses to open, resulting in lack of redundancy or system failure. When source A and source B are within 0.25 V, discharge current is minimal.


Note When source A and source B are wired with common negative terminals, as in Figure 17, discharging does not occur and there is no restriction requiring that source A and source B voltages be equal.


Figure 18 Connecting Source A and Source B with Common Positive Terminals

In Figure 19, source A and source B are wired with opposite polarity grounds. Do not use this configuration.


Caution Do not use the DC input configuration shown in Figure 19.

Figure 19 Source A and Source B Wired with Opposite-Polarity Grounds

Connecting the Router to Backup Power

The Cisco 3845 router operates in redundant mode when two power supplies are installed. The Cisco 3825 router has one internal power supply and a connector for mating to an external backup power source.

To connect the Cisco 3825 router to the external Cisco Redundant Power System (RPS), remove the RPS connector cover from the bezel and connect the RPS cable. (See Figure 20 and Figure 21.)

See the Cisco RPS-675 Hardware Installation Guide for more information about RPS power connections. To locate this documents, see the "Where to Go Next" section.


Note For information about installing a second power supply in the Cisco 3845 router, see the Cisco 3800 series hardware installation documentation at the following URL:

http://cisco.com/en/US/products/ps5855/prod_installation_guides_list.html



Caution Before connecting the RPS to the router, make sure that either the RPS is in standby mode or the RPS AC power is disconnected. Connecting the RPS to AC power automatically places the RPS in active mode.

Warning Class 1 laser product. Statement 1008



Caution To comply with the Telcordia GR-1089 NEBS standard for electromagnetic compatibility and safety, connect Gigabit Ethernet ports using RJ-45 connectors for shielded twisted pair cable only to intra-building or unexposed wiring or cable. The intrabuilding cable must be shielded and the shield must be grounded at both ends. The intra-building port(s) of the equipment or subassembly must not be metallically connected to interfaces that connect to the OSP or its wiring. These interfaces are designed for use as intra-building interfaces only (Type 2 or Type 4 ports as described in GR-1089-CORE, Issue 4) and require isolation from the exposed OSP cabling. The addition of Primary Protectors is not sufficient protection in order to connect these interfaces metallically to OSP wiring.

6 Power Up the Router


Caution To ensure adequate cooling, never operate the router unless the cover and all modules and cover plates are installed.

Checklist for Power Up

You are ready to power up the Cisco 3800 series router after the following steps are completed:

Chassis is securely mounted and grounded. (See the "Install Chassis" section.)

Power and interface cables are connected. (See the "Connect Cables" section.)

PC with HyperTerminal or similar terminal emulation program is connected to the console port, powered up, and configured for 9600 baud, 8 data bits, 1 stop bit, no flow control, and no parity. (See the "Power Connections" section.)

Suitable PC COM port is selected in the terminal emulation program.

You have selected passwords for access control.

You have determined the IP addresses for the Ethernet and serial interfaces.


Note For initial power-up, a direct console connection is recommended. After the initial configuration is completed, a remote modem connection can be used for router management.


Power-Up Procedure

To power up your Cisco router and verify that it goes through its initialization and self-test, perform this procedure. When the procedure is finished, the Cisco router is ready to configure.


Note To view the boot sequence, you must have a console connection to the Cisco router before it powers up.



Step 1 Make sure that your PC is powered up and connected as described in the "Checklist for Power Up" section.

Step 2 Move the power switch to the ON position on the router. The SYS LED blinks green on both the Cisco 3825 and Cisco 3845 routers. During the boot process, the SYS PWR LED on the Cisco 3825 chassis is steady green, and the SYS PWR1 LED or SYS PWR2 LED on the Cisco 3845 chassis are off. If this does not happen, see the "Troubleshooting" document in the online Cisco 3800 series hardware installation documentation at the following URL:

http://cisco.com/en/US/products/ps5855/tsd_products_support_troubleshoot_and_alerts.html

Startup messages appear in your terminal emulation program window. After Cisco IOS software has finished booting, the SYS LED for both routers is steady green, and the SYS PWR1 LED or SYS PWR2 LED on the Cisco 3845 chassis is steady green.


Caution Do not press any keys on the keyboard until the messages stop and the SYS LED is steady green. Any keys pressed during this time are interpreted as the first command typed when the messages stop, which might cause the router to power off and start over. It takes a few minutes for the messages to stop.

Verify the Hardware Configuration

To display and verify the hardware features, enter the following commands:

show version—Displays the system hardware version; the installed software version; the names and sources of configuration files; the boot images; and the amount of installed DRAM, NVRAM, and flash memory.

show diag—Lists and displays diagnostic information about the installed controllers, interface processors, and port adapters. Typical examples are network modules, interface cards (VICs, WICs, HWICs, and AIMs) and PVDMs.

7 Port Numbering

Each built-in networking port on a Cisco 3800 series router, and each port on a network module or interface card, is identified in Cisco IOS software by an interface type and a number or series of numbers separated by forward slashes (/). Port numbers for Cisco 3800 series routers follow the rules in this section.


Note The interface numbering for Cisco 3800 series routers is different from the numbering in Cisco 3700 series routers.


Built-In Ports

The Gigabit Ethernet ports built into the router's rear panel are numbered 0/0 and 0/1. These numbers are used with the interface-type keyword gigabitethernet to identify these ports in Cisco IOS software commands—gigabitethernet 0/0 and gigabitethernet 0/1.

Network Module Ports

Ports on network modules inserted into a router slot are numbered slot/port, where slot is the slot number and port is the port number.

The Cisco 3825 router has two network module slots. The lower slot is numbered 1; the upper slot is numbered 2. The
Cisco 3845 router has four slots: 1 at lower right, 2 at lower left, 3 at upper right, and 4 at upper left.


Note Double-wide or extended double-wide network modules use slot numbers 2 and 4.


Ports in a network module are normally numbered from right to left and bottom to top, starting at 0. See the Cisco Network Modules Hardware Installation Guide for more information.

Table 6 summarizes the interface numbering.

1 The interfaces listed are examples only; other possible interface types are not listed.

2 Interface card slot numbers for double-width interface-card slots are 1 and 3 only.

3 Network module slot numbers are 1 and 2 for the Cisco 3825 router; 1, 2, 3, and 4 for the Cisco 3845 router.


Interface Card Ports

Interface cards can be inserted either directly into a router slot or into a slot in a network module.

Interface Card in Router

Interface cards inserted into a router slot are numbered 0/HWIC-slot/port. HWIC-slot is 0, 1, 2, or 3, as labeled on the router rear panel.


Note Double-wide interface cards use slot numbers 1 and 3.


Ports in an interface card are normally numbered from right to left and bottom to top, starting at 0. See the Cisco Interface Cards Installation Guide for more information.

Interface Card in Network Module

Some network modules provide slots for interface cards. Ports in these interface cards are numbered router-slot/module-slot/port, where router-slot is 1, 2, 3, or 4.


Note Double-wide or extended double-wide network modules use slot numbers 2 and 4.


Slots in network modules for interface cards are normally numbered from right to left, starting at 0. Ports in an interface card are normally numbered from right to left and bottom to top, starting at 0. For more information, see the Cisco Network Modules Hardware Installation Guide and Cisco Interface Cards Installation Guide.


Note On the Cisco 3825 and Cisco 3845 routers, the interface numbering scheme is the same for asynchronous interfaces as other types of interfaces. To configure the line associated with an async interface, simply use the interface number to specify the async line. For example, line 0/3/0 specifies the line associated with interface serial 0/3/0 on a WIC-2A/S in slot 3. Similarly, line 1/22 specifies the line associated with interface async 1/22 on an NM-32A in network module slot 1.


8 Perform Initial Configuration

You can configure your router by using one of the following tools:

Cisco Router and Security Device Manager (SDM)—See the "Initial Configuration Using Cisco Router and Security Device Manager (SDM)" section.

Setup command facility—See the "Initial Configuration Using the Setup Command Facility" section.

Command-line interface (CLI)—See the "Initial Configuration Using the Cisco CLI—Manual Configuration" section.


Note If you need help with the interface and port numbering, see the "Port Numbering" section.


Initial Configuration Using Cisco Router and Security Device Manager (SDM)

If the following messages appear at the end of the startup sequence, Cisco Router and Security Device Manager (SDM) is installed on your router:

yourname con0 is now available

Press RETURN to get started.

For instructions on configuring your router by using SDM, see the Cisco Router and Security Device Manager (SDM) Quick Start Guide that shipped with your router.


Tip If the messages above do not appear, SDM and the Cisco Router and Security Device Manager (SDM) Quick Start Guide were not shipped with your router. If you want to use SDM, you can download the latest version of SDM and instructions for installing it on your router from the following location:

http://www.cisco.com/pcgi-bin/tablebuild.pl/sdm

To obtain the SDM quick start guide, SDM release notes, and other SDM documentation, go to www.cisco.com/go/sdm and click the Technical Documentation link.


Initial Configuration Using the Setup Command Facility

This section shows how to use the setup command facility to configure a hostname for the router, set passwords, and configure an interface for communication with the management network. If the following messages appear at the end of the startup sequence, the setup command facility has been invoked automatically:

--- 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 '[]'.

Would you like to enter the initial configuration dialog? [yes/no]:

The setup command facility prompts you for basic information about your router and network, and it creates an initial configuration file. After the configuration file is created, you can use the CLI or Cisco Router and Security Device Manager (SDM) to perform additional configuration.

The prompts in the setup command facility vary depending on your router model, the installed interface modules, and the software image. The following example and the user entries (in bold) are shown as examples only.

For help with interface and port numbering, see the "Port Numbering" section.


Note If you make a mistake while using the setup command facility, you can exit and run the setup command facility again. Press Ctrl-C, and type setup at the privileged EXEC mode prompt (Router#).



Step 1 To proceed using the setup command facility, enter yes when the power-up messages have ended.

Would you like to enter the initial configuration dialog? [yes/no]: yes

Step 2 When the following messages appear, press Return to enter basic management setup:

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 '[]'.

Basic management setup configures only enough connectivity
for management of the system, extended setup will ask you
to configure each interface on the system

Would you like to enter basic management setup? [yes/no]: yes

Step 3 Enter a hostname for the router (this example uses Router):

Configuring global parameters:

Enter host name [Router]: Router

Step 4 Enter an enable secret password. This password is encrypted (more secure) and cannot be seen when you view the configuration.

The enable secret is a password used to protect access to
privileged EXEC and configuration modes. This password, after
entered, becomes encrypted in the configuration.
Enter enable secret: xxxxxx

Step 5 Enter an enable password that is different from the enable secret password. This password is not encrypted (less secure) and can be seen when you view the configuration.

The enable password is used when you do not specify an
enable secret password, with some older software versions, and
some boot images.
Enter enable password: xxxxxx

Step 6 Enter the virtual terminal password, which prevents unauthenticated access to the router through ports other than the console port:

The virtual terminal password is used to protect
access to the router over a network interface.
Enter virtual terminal password: xxxxxx

Step 7 Respond to the following prompts as appropriate for your network:

Configure SNMP Network Management? [yes]:
    Community string [public]:

A summary of the available interfaces appears.

Choose Cisco Product Identification Tool from the Alphabetical Index drop-down list, or click the Cisco Product Identification Tool link under Alerts & RMAs. The CPI tool offers three search options: by product ID or model name; by tree view; or for certain products, by copying and pasting show command output. Search results show an illustration of your product with the serial number label location highlighted. Locate the serial number label on your product and record the information before placing a service call.


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 provides recommended solutions. If your issue is not resolved using the recommended resources, your service request is 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.
