Managing Cisco Enhanced Services and Network Interface Modules

The router supports Cisco Enhanced Services Modules (SMs) and Cisco Network Interface Modules (NIMs). The modules are inserted into the router using an adapter, or carrier card, into various slots. For more information see the Hardware Installation Guide for the Cisco 4400 Series Integrated Services Routers .

Information About Cisco Enhanced Services and Network Interface Modules

The router configures, manages, and controls the supported Cisco Enhanced Services Modules (SMs) and Network Interface Modules (NIMs) using the module management facility built in its architecture. This new centralized module management facility provides a common way to control and monitor all modules in the system regardless of their type and application. All Cisco Enhanced Service and Network Interface Modules supported on your router use standard IP protocols to interact with the host router. Cisco IOS software uses alien data path integration to switch between the modules.

Modules Supported

The router supports the modules listed in Table 14-1 .

Cisco Fourth-Generation T1/E1 Voice and WAN Network Interface Module

The Cisco Fourth-Generation T1/E1 Voice and WAN Network Interface Module (NIM) is inserted into the NIM slot of the router and provides data and voice support on T1/E1 trunks. To support voice-related and other DSP features, the Cisco PVDM4 (Cisco Packet Voice Digital Signal Processor Module) is also required. See the following documents for more information:

Cisco SSD/HDD Carrier Card NIM

The router supports a single Cisco SSD/HDD Carrier Card NIM, which must be placed in slot 0 and sub-slot 1, 2, or 3. A Cisco SSD/HDD Carrier Card NIM is one of two types:

  • Cisco SSD Carrier Card NIM—supports a solid-state drive(SSD)—flash storage or drive.
  • Cisco HDD Carrier Card NIM—supports a hard disk drive (HDD).

For more information on the hardware characteristics of the SSD/HDD Carrier Card NIM see:
Hardware Installation Guide for the Cisco 4400 Series Integrated Services Routers

For further information on deactivating or reactivating a SSD/HDD Carrier Card NIM, see Deactivating and Reactivating an HDD/SSD Carrier Card NIM .

Cisco Multi-protocol Synchronous Serial NIM

The Cisco Multi-protocol Synchronous Serial NIM is inserted into the NIM slot of the router and provides connectivity for synchronous interfaces in applications such as the high speed high-level data link control (HDLC) to 8 Mbps. This capability can be utilized as Point-to-Point Cisco HDLC WAN interface or frame relay interface. The NIM software is capable of anti-counterfeit protection and provides periodic system status information. Serial NIMs have their own serial communication controllers (SCCs) and do not rely on the host platform for SCCs. For further information on configuring this NIM, see:

http://www.cisco.com/content/en/us/td/docs/routers/access/interfaces/S_NIM/software/configuration/guide/snim_config.html

Upgrading Firmware

To upgrade the firmware for the SSD drive or HDD drive, use a command such as:

upgrade hw-programmable module filename bootflash: filename slot / sub-slot

A typical filename has the form:
nim_ssd_manufacturer_firmware-version-number.bin

The filename can also be in other locations other than bootflash: For example you can use the following in place of “ bootflash: filename”:

flash: filename

harddisk: filename

usb1: filename


Note For a Cisco SSD Carrier Card NIM or Cisco HDD Carrier Card NIM, only slot 0 and one of the sub-slots 1, 2, or 3 must be used.


Error Monitoring

The drives in the Cisco SDD/HDD Carrier Card NIM are monitored for SMART errors. If an error occurs, a Cisco IOS error message may appear, as shown in the following example:

%IOSXE-5-PLATFORM:logger: INFO:/dev/sde:SMART error present:please do 'more bootflash:/tracelogs/smart_errors.log'.

The error log bootflash:/tracelogs/smart_errors.log contains further information.

Cisco UCS E-Series Server

For further information, see Cisco UCS E-Series Server Roadmap , which lists the Getting Started Guide for Cisco UCS E-Series Servers, GUI configuration guide, CLI configuration guide, and troubleshooting guide.

Cisco SM-X Layer 2/3 EtherSwitch Service Module

This module provides:

  • Integration of Layer 2 and Layer 3 switching features and the ability for the router to use the Cisco SM-X Layer 2/3 ESM (16-port and 24-port) as an independent Layer 3 switch.
  • 1 Gbps connection to the multigigabit fabric (MGF) for intermodule communication without burdening the CPU of the router.
  • Up to 30 watts of power per port with the robust Power over Ethernet Plus (PoE+) feature along with IEEE 802.3AE Media Access Control Security (MACSec) port-based, hop-to-hop, encryption, and Cisco TrustSec (CTS).

For further information, see the Cisco SM-X Layer 2/3 EtherSwitch Service Module Configuration Guide for Cisco 4451-X ISR and Connecting Cisco SM-X Layer 2/3 EtherSwitch Service Module to the Network.

Cisco 6-port GE SFP Service Module

The Cisco 6-port GE SFP service module is a gigabit ethernet module that can be inserted into the router’s SM slot to provide gigabit ethernet features on routable external interfaces. For further information on configuring this service module, see the Software Configuration Guide for the Cisco 6-port GE SFP Service Module .

Implementing SMs and NIMs on Your Router

Downloading the Module Firmware

Module firmware must be loaded onto the router to be able to use a service module. See the
“Installing a Firmware Subpackage” section”.

The modules connect to the RP via the internal eth0 interface for the purpose of downloading firmware. Initially the module gets an IP address for itself via BOOTP that also provides the address of the TFTP server used to download the image. Once the image is loaded and the module is booted, the module gets an IP address for the running image via DHCP.

Installing SMs and NIMs

For further information, see “Installing and Removing NIMs and SMs” in the “Installing and Upgrading Modules and FRUs” section of the Hardware Installation Guide for the Cisco 4400 Series Integrated Services Routers.

Accessing Your Module Through a Console Connection or Telnet

Before you can access the modules, you must connect to the host router through the router console or through Telnet. Once you are connected to the router, you must configure an IP address on the gigabit ethernet interface connected to your module. Open a session to your module using the
hw-module session command in privileged EXEC mode on the router.

You can use the following method to establish a connection to the module:

  • Connect to the router console using Telnet or Secure Shell (SSH) and open a session to the switch using the hw-module session slot/subslot command in privileged EXEC mode on the router.

You can use the following configuration examples to establish a connection:

  • To open a session from the router, use the following command:
 

Router# hw-module session slot / card

Router# hw-module session 0/1 endpoint 0

 

Establishing session connect to subslot 0/1

 
 
  • To exit the session from the router, press Ctrl-A and Ctrl-Q from your keyboard:
type ^a^q
picocom v1.4
 
port is : /dev/ttyDASH2
flowcontrol : none
baudrate is : 9600
parity is : none
databits are : 8
escape is : C-a
noinit is : no
noreset is : no
nolock is : yes
send_cmd is : ascii_xfr -s -v -l10
receive_cmd is : rz -vv

Online Insertion and Removal

The router supports online insertion and removal (OIR) of Cisco Enhanced Services Modules and Cisco Network Interface Modules. You can remove a service module or a network interface module using the OIR function. You can perform the following tasks using the OIR function:

Preparing for Online Removal of a Module

The router supports the OIR of a module independent of removing another module installed in your router. This means that an active module can remain installed in your router, while you remove another module from one of the subslots. If you are not planning to immediately replace a module, ensure that you install a blank filler plate in the subslot.

Deactivating a Module

We recommend graceful deactivation (or graceful power down) of a module using the
hw-module subslot slot / subslot stop command in EXEC mode; however, the module can be removed without first being deactivated.


Note When you are preparing for an OIR of a module, it is not necessary to independently shut down each of the interfaces prior to deactivation of the module. The hw-module subslot slot/subslot stop command in EXEC mode automatically stops traffic on the interfaces and deactivates them along with the module in preparation for OIR. Similarly, you do not need to independently restart any interfaces on a module after OIR.


Enter the show facility-alarm status command. The following example shows a critical alarm that is generated when a module is removed from the system:

 

Router# show facility-alarm status

System Totals Critical: 5 Major: 1 Minor: 0

 

Source Severity Description [Index]

------ -------- -------------------

Power Supply Bay 1 CRITICAL Power Supply/FAN Module Missing [0]

GigabitEthernet0/0/0 CRITICAL Physical Port Link Down [1]

GigabitEthernet0/0/1 CRITICAL Physical Port Link Down [1]

GigabitEthernet0/0/2 CRITICAL Physical Port Link Down [1]

GigabitEthernet0/0/3 CRITICAL Physical Port Link Down [1]

xcvr container 0/0/2 INFO Transceiver Missing [0]

xcvr container 0/0/3 INFO Transceiver Missing [0]

V: 1.0v PCH R0/18 MAJOR Volt Above Normal [3]

 


Note A critical alarm “Active Card Removed OIR Alarm” is generated even if a module is removed after performing graceful deactivation.


Deactivating Modules and Interfaces in Different Command Modes

You can deactivate a module and all of its interfaces using the hw-module subslot command in one of following two modes:

  • If you choose to deactivate your module and its interfaces by executing the hw-module subslot slot / subslot shutdown unpowered command in global configuration mode, you are able to change the configuration in such a way that no matter how many times the router is rebooted, the module does not boot. This command is useful when you need to shut down a module located in a remote location and ensure that it does not boot automatically when the router is rebooted.
  • If you choose to use the hw-module subslot slot / subslot stop command in EXEC mode, you cause the module to gracefully shut down. The module is rebooted when the hw-module subslot slot / subslot start command is executed.

To deactivate a module and all of its interfaces prior to removal of the module, use one of the following commands in global configuration mode:

Command or Action
Purpose

Step 1

hw-module subslot slot/subslot shutdown unpowered

 

Router# hw-module subslot 0/2 shutdown unpowered

Deactivates the module located in the specified slot and subslot of the router, where:

  • slot —Specifies the chassis slot number where the module is installed.
  • subslot —Specifies the subslot number of the chassis where the module is installed.
  • shutdown —Shuts down the specified module.
  • unpowered — Shuts down the module and all of its interfaces, and leaves them in an administratively down state. Subslot power supply is disabled.

Step 2

hw-module subslot slot/subslot [reload | stop | start]

 

Router# hw-module subslot 0/2 stop

Deactivates the module in the specified slot and subslot.

  • slot —Specifies the chassis slot number where the module is installed.
  • subslot —Specifies the subslot number of the chassis where the module is installed.
  • reload —Stops and restarts the specified module.
  • stop —Stops the specified module.
  • start —Starts the specified module.

Deactivating and Reactivating an HDD/SSD Carrier Card NIM

To deactivate an SSD Carrier Card NIM or HDD Carrier Card NIM, use the following steps:

Restrictions

  • Deactivating or reactivating an SSD/HDD Carrier Card NIM without an SSD or HDD disk is not supported.
  • Only a single (SSD or HDD) Carrier Card NIM can be plugged into a bay. If you plug an additional (SSD or HDD) Carrier Card NIM into another bay, the module powers down and kernel/ log/error messages appear on the IOS console. In rare cases, the filesystem may be corrupted on the additional drive.
  • Deactivation of an SSD/NIM Carrier Card NIM is expected to cause loss of data.

 

Command or Action
Purpose

Step 1

virtual-service name

 

router(config)# virtual-service my-kwaas-instance

Identifies a kWAAS service by name , supported on your router, in preparation for it being shut down by the following no activate command. We recommend that you use this command when you wish to re-seat or replace an SSD/HDD.

Step 2

no activate

 

 

router(config-virt-serv)# no activate

  • no activate —Shuts down a kWAAS service running on your router.

Note The no activate command shuts down the kWAAS instance on your router. kWAAS services remain installed. The service will have to be reactivated after the HDD/SSD NIM (module) is restarted.

Step 3

hw-module subslot slot/subslot [reload | stop | start]

 

Router# hw-module subslot 0/2 stop

Proceed with stop of module? [confirm]

Router#

*Mar 6 15:13:23.997: %SPA_OIR-6-OFFLINECARD: SPA (NIM-SSD) offline in subslot 0/3

...

Deactivates or reactivates the module in the specified slot and subslot.

  • slot —The chassis slot number where the module is installed.
  • subslot —The subslot number of the chassis where the module is installed.
  • reload —Deactivates and reactivates (stops and restarts) the specified module.
  • stop —Deactivates the specified module.
  • start —Reactivates the specified module.

Step 4

Wait for the EN (Enable) LED to turn off, and then remove the SSD/HDD Carrier Card NIM.

Reactivating a Module

When you deactivate a module using the hw-module subslot slot/subslot stop command and you then need to reactivate it without performing an OIR, you can use either of the following commands (in privileged EXEC mode):

  • hw-module subslot slot/subslot start
  • hw-module subslot slot/subslot reload

This reactivates the module without performing a hard OIR.

Verifying the Deactivation and Activation of a Module

When you deactivate a module, the corresponding interfaces are also deactivated. This means that these interfaces will no longer appear in the output of the show interface command.


Step 1 To verify the deactivation of a module, enter the show hw-module subslot all oir command in privileged EXEC configuration mode. Observe the “Operational Status” field associated with the module that you want to verify.

In the following example, the module located in subslot 1 of the router is administratively down from the hw-module subslot shutdown command:

Router# show hw-module subslot all oir

 

Module Model Operational Status

 

-------------- ------------------ -------------------------

 

subslot 0/0 ISR4451-4X1GE ok

subslot 1/0 SM-X-T1/E1 ok

 

Step 2 To verify activation and proper operation of a module, enter the show hw-module subslot all oir command and observe “ok” in the Operational Status field as shown in the following example:

Router# show hw-module subslot all oir

 

Module Model Operational Status

 

-------------- ------------------ -------------------------

 

subslot 0/1 NIM-8MFT-T1/E1 ok

subslot 1/0 SM-X T1/E1 ok

Managing Modules and Interfaces

The router supports various modules. See Table 14-1 for a list of supported modules.
The module management process involves bringing up the modules so that their resources can be utilized. This process consists of tasks such as module detection, authentication, configuration by clients, status reporting, and recovery. For detailed information about module configuration, see the module documentation referred to in the Documentation Roadmap for the Cisco 4400 Series Integrated Services Routers .

For a list small-form-factor pluggable (SFP) modules supported on your router, see the “Installing and Upgrading Internal Modules and FRUs” section in the Hardware Installation Guide for the Cisco 4400 Series Integrated Services Routers .

Managing Module Interfaces

After a module is in service, you can control and monitor its module interface. This interface management includes configuring clients with shut or no shut commands and reporting on the state of the interface and the interface level statistics.

Monitor the module status and other statistical information using show commands listed in the
“Monitoring and Troubleshooting Modules and Interfaces” section.

Backplane Ethernet Switch

The backplane ethernet switch on your router provides connectivity to Enhanced Service Modules (SMs) and Network Interface Modules (NIMs). The backplane ethernet switch facilitates all packet transfers between the host router and its pluggable modules. The host router is connected to the modules at a rate of 9600 baud.

The backplane ethernet switch act as a manager for the host router and controls the module and exchanges logical flow control information with the module to ensure accurate feedback to the router’s features. See the “Managing Modules and Interfaces” section for more information. The backplane ethernet switch also facilitates control plane traffic flow from the host router to the modules. The backplane switch manages modules and interface cards and is used to communicate with the modules. Module drivers integrate with the backplane switch to configure packet flow and control traffic buffering.

You are not required to perform any configuration tasks on the backplane switch, all configurations are performed from the module, which may or may not lead to changes on the backplane switch. See the Hardware Installation Guide for the Cisco 4400 Series Integrated Services Routers for adapter installation information.


Note Layer 2 protocols, such as the IEEE 802.1D spanning tree protocol (STP) are not supported in the backplane ethernet switch.

Configuration Examples

This section provides the following examples of deactivating and activating modules:

Example: Deactivating a Module Configuration

You can deactivate a module to perform OIR of that module. The following example deactivates the module (and its interfaces) that is installed in subslot 0 of the router and removes power to the module.

Router (config)# hw-module slot 1 subslot 1/0 shutdown unpowered

Example: Activating a Module Configuration

You can activate a module if you have previously deactivated it. If you have not deactivated a module and its interfaces during OIR, then the module is automatically reactivated upon reactivation of the router.

The following example activates the module that is installed in subslot 0, located in slot 1 of the router:

Router(config)# hw-module slot 1 subslot 1/0 start
