Upgrading Field Programmable Hardware Devices Overview

If the Cisco ASR 1000 Series Router contains an old version of the hardware programmable firmware on the Cisco ASR1000-RP, Cisco ASR1000-SIP, or Cisco ASR1000-ESP, then that hardware programmable firmware may need to be upgraded. To do this upgrade, a hardware programmable package, asr1000-hw-programmables.<release_name>.pkg, is released to customers.

Generally an upgrade is only necessary in cases where a system message indicates one of the field programmable devices on the Cisco ASR 1000 Series Routers needs an upgrade or a Cisco technical support representative suggests an upgrade.

In Cisco IOS XE Release 3.1.0S and later, a CPLD field upgrade is required to support old versions of firmware on Cisco ASR1000-RP2 and Cisco ASR1000-SIP10 modules in the Cisco ASR 1013 Router. See the "CPLD Field Programmable Upgrade, Cisco IOS XE Release 3.1S" section for upgrade procedures you can use in the field.


Caution Do not power down or reset the linecard or interrupt the router during the field programmable upgrade. If a linecard is reset during an upgrade it can lead to a dead card. Although the Cisco ASR 1000 Series Router should be able to recover from most interruptions during the upgrade, certain scenarios may cause unpredictable problems.

Displaying Incompatible CPLD Version

If you received an error message indicating the field programmable device needs an upgrade and your cards are held in reset or your standby RP or SIP10 has powered down, you have an incompatible CPLD version on the device. Use the show platform command to display the state of your active and RPs and SIP carrier cards.

The following example shows that the Cisco ASR1000-SIP10 has a state of "cpld_incompatible" that means the SIP10 has an older, incompatible CPLD version and will require an upgrade to be compatible with the Cisco ASR 1013 Router.

CPLD Field Programmable Upgrade Overview

In Cisco IOS XE Release 3.1.0S and later, a CPLD field upgrade is required to upgrade old versions of firmware on Cisco ASR1000-RP2 and Cisco ASR1000-SIP10 components in the Cisco ASR 1013 Router. These hardware components are not compatible when inserted in the Cisco ASR 1013 Router because they contain an older CPLD version.

If you want to reuse existing Cisco ASR1000-RP2 and Cisco ASR1000-SIP10 components in the Cisco ASR 1013 Router, you must perform a CPLD field programmable upgrade on these components. If an incompatible component is inserted into the Cisco ASR 1013 Router, Cisco software detects out-of-revision hardware. The next sections describe how to upgrade the out-of revision hardware components in the Cisco ASR 1013 Router.

If out-of-revision hardware is detected, you will receive the following types of error messages notifying you of the out-of-revision component:

For an incompatible active ASR1000-RP2:

%CMRP-2-RP_CPLD_INCOMPATIBLE: R0/0: cmand: All other cards in the system has been held 
in reset because the Active RP's CPLD firmware version is incompatible with this 
Chassis. 

For an incompatible standby ASR1000-RP2:

%CMRP-2-FRU_CPLD_INCOMPATIBLE: R0/0: cmand: R1 has been held in reset because the 
FRU's CPLD firmware version is incompatible with this Chassis. 

For an incompatible Cisco ASR1000-SIP10:

"%CMRP-2-FRU_CPLD_INCOMPATIBLE: R0/0: cmand:  SIP10 has been held in reset because the 
FRU's CPLD firmware version is incompatible with this Chassis. 

To corroborate or determine if one of the components has an incompatible CPLD version, you can use the show platform command. See the "Displaying Incompatible CPLD Version" section.


Note No CPLD upgrade is necessary for the Cisco ASR1000-ESP40 and Cisco ASR1000-SIP40.


If you have an incompatible Cisco ASR1000-RP2 or Cisco ASR1000-SIP10 components on your chassis, the active RP behaves differently than the standby RP or SIP10:

If the active RP has an incompatible version—the active RP will hold the standby RP and SIP10 cards in reset, even if those cards have the latest CPLD version. The active RP will continue to run to allow you to upgrade the firmware. You will receive an error message stating that and requesting you to upgrade the CPLD version.

If the standby RP or SIP10 has an incompatible version—the standby RP or SIP10 will power down. You will receive an error message stating that and requesting you to upgrade the CPLD version.

In Cisco IOS XE Release 3.1.0S, a hardware programmable package called "asr1000-hw-programmables.03.01.00.S.150-1.S.pkg" is released to customers in cases where a CPLD upgrade is required.

To down load the hardware programmable package from Cisco.com, log in to the Download Software page with your Cisco.com password at: http://www.cisco.com/cisco/web/download/index.html. In the "Select a Software Product Category," select "Routers," select a product such as "Service Provider Edge Routers," select "Cisco ASR 1000 Series Aggregation Services Routers," select "Cisco ASR 1013 Router," select the "15.0(1)S" release, and then click on "Download Now."

A CPLD upgrade using the downloaded image is only necessary in cases where a system message indicates one of the CPLDs on the Cisco ASR 1000 Series Routers needs an upgrade.

You can upgrade the CPLD firmware on the Cisco ASR1000-RP2 and Cisco ASR1000-SIP10 individually using the upgrade hw-programmable command. The CPLD upgrade can take up to ten minutes for each component or card. You can perform the upgrade on the Cisco ASR1000-RP2 and Cisco ASR1000-SIP10 at any time as long as you can access the privileged EXEC mode prompt on the router.

If the Cisco ASR 1013 Router is being used in a production environment, you can perform the CPLD 
upgrade for incompatible versions of the Cisco ASR1000-RP2 and Cisco ASR1000-SIP10 on a 
Cisco ASR 1004 or Cisco ASR 1006 chassis. However, the difference is you will not receive any error 
messages notifying you of the out-of-revision component on the Cisco ASR 1004 or Cisco ASR 1006 
chassis. 

Caution Do not power down or reset the linecard or interrupt the router during the CPLD upgrade. If a linecard is reset during an upgrade it can lead to a dead card. Although the Cisco ASR 1013 Router should be able to recover from most interruptions during the CPLD upgrade, certain scenarios may cause unpredictable problems.

Upgrading an Active Cisco ASR1000-RP2

The following steps perform a Cisco ASR1000-RP2 CPLD field upgrade on the Cisco ASR 1013 Router, from beginning to end. In the example described in these steps, R0 is the active RP2. If R1 is the active RP, follow the same upgrade steps on R1.


Note If the active RP has an incompatible version—the active RP will hold the standby RP, SIP10, and ESP cards in reset, even if those cards have the latest CPLD version. The active RP will continue to run to allow you to upgrade the firmware.



Step 1 Cold boot the active RP (Cisco ASR1000-RP2).

Step 2 During bootup, if you receive the following error message:

%CMRP-2-RP_CPLD_INCOMPATIBLE: R0/0: cmand: All other cards in the system has been held in 
reset because the Active RP's CPLD firmware version is incompatible with this Chassis. 

This means that the active RP did the minimum CPLD version check and the check failed. All other cards are held in reset, even if they have the latest CPLD or FPGA version, and the active RP will continue to run to allow the user to upgrade the firmware.

Explanation of error message: The active RP2 requires a newer CPLD firmware to function properly in this chassis. You need to upgrade the CPLD firmware.


Note If you chose the option to perform the CPLD upgrade on a non-production Cisco ASR 1004 Router or Cisco ASR 1006 Router, you will not see this error message on those routers.


Step 3 Copy the hw-programmable upgrade package to your hard disk as follows:

copy tftp:/...asr1000-hw-programmables.03.01.00.S.150-1.S.pkg harddisk:

To download this package from Cisco.com, log in with your Cisco.com password to: http://tools.cisco.com/support/downloads/go/Redirect.x?mdfid=268437899.

Step 4 Upgrade the active Cisco ASR1000-RP2 CPLD with the following command:

Router# upgrade hw-programmable CPLD filename harddisk: 
asr1000-hw-programmables.03.01.00.S.150-1.S.pkg R0

Upgrade CPLD on Route-Processor 0 from current version 08103002 to 10021901 [confirm] 
This command could take up to 10 minutes, please wait and do not power cycle the box or 
the card (hardware may be unrecoverable). This command  also issues a reset to the 
linecard at the end of upgrade.[confirm]

Step 5 The active Cisco ASR1000-RP2 CPLD firmware is upgraded successfully and you will receive the following success message:

SYSTEM HAS SUCCESFULLY UPGRADED THE cpld hw-programmable on Route-Processor 0. PLEASE 
POWER CYCLE THE CHASSIS NOW.

Step 6 Power cycle the chassis.

Step 7 After the power cycle, the active RP reboots with the latest CPLD programmable firmware and comes online.


Upgrading a Standby Cisco ASR1000-RP2

The following steps describe a Cisco ASR1000-RP2 CPLD field upgrade on the Cisco ASR 1013 Router, from beginning to end. In the example described in these steps, R1 is the standby RP. If R0 is the standby RP, follow the same upgrade steps on R0.


Step 1 When the standby RP starts booting, the active RP checks the CPLD version of the standby RP.
If the standby RP has an incompatible version, you receive the following error message and the standby RP is powered down:

%CMRP-2-FRU_CPLD_INCOMPATIBLE: R0/0: cmand: R1 has been held in reset because the FRU's 
CPLD firmware version is incompatible with this Chassis. 

Explanation of error message: The standby RP requires a newer CPLD firmware to function properly in this chassis. You need to upgrade the CPLD firmware.


Note If you chose the option to perform the CPLD upgrade on a Cisco ASR 1004 Router or Cisco ASR 1006 Router, you will not see this error message on those routers.


Step 2 Copy the hw-programmable upgrade package to your hard disk as follows:

copy tftp:/...asr1000-hw-programmables.03.01.00.S.150-1.S.pkg harddisk:

To download this package from Cisco.com, log in with your Cisco.com password to: http://tools.cisco.com/support/downloads/go/Redirect.x?mdfid=268437899.

Step 3 Upgrade the standby RP with the following command:

Router# upgrade hw-programmable CPLD filename harddisk: 
asr1000-hw-programmables.03.01.00.S.150-1.S.pkg R1

Upgrade CPLD on Route-Processor 1 from current version 08103002 to 10021901 [confirm] This 
command could take up to 10 minutes, please wait and do not power cycle the box or the 
card (hardware may be unrecoverable). This command  also issues a reset to the linecard at 
the end of upgrade.[confirm]

Upgrade cpld hw-programmable on Route-Processor 1
Reloading Route-Processor 1 to start upgrade

Step 4 The standby RP is powered up and CPLD firmware on the standby RP is upgraded.

Step 5 After the upgrade is successful, you will receive the following success message in the active RP:

Jul 16 16:03:02.354: %CMRP-3-FRU_HWPRG_UPG_SUCCESS: R0/0: cmand:  Hardware programmable 
CPLD on ASR1000-RP2 in slot R1 was successfully  programed. Card will now be powercycled.

Step 6 The active RP power cycles the standby RP. The standby RP reboots with the latest CPLD programmable firmware and comes online.


Upgrading a Cisco ASR1000-SIP10

The following steps perform a Cisco ASR1000-SIP10 CPLD field upgrade on the Cisco ASR 1013 Router, from beginning to end. In the example described in these steps, slot 2 on the SIP10 is used for the upgrade. If another slot number (zero, 1, 3, or 4) is used for the upgrade, following the same upgrade steps for that slot number.


Note For the ASR1000-SIP10 CPLD upgrade, do not use slot 5. Use one of slots zero (0) through 4.



Step 1 When the Cisco ASR1000-SIP10 starts booting, the Cisco ASR1000-SIP10 relays the CPLD version to the active RP. If the SIP10 has an incompatible version, you receive the following error message:

%CMRP-2-FRU_CPLD_INCOMPATIBLE: R0/0: cmand:  SIP10 has been held in reset because the 
FRU's CPLD firmware version is incompatible with this Chassis. 

This means that the active RP did the minimum CPLD version check and the check failed. SIP10 was powered down and the active RP logged the error message.

Explanation of error message: The SIP10 requires a newer CPLD firmware to function properly in this chassis. You need to upgrade the CPLD firmware.


Note If you chose the option to perform the CPLD upgrade on a non-production Cisco ASR 1004 Router or Cisco ASR 1006 Router, you will not see this error message on those routers.


Step 2 If you receive the additional error message:

%CMRP-3-SIP10_CPLD_UPG_SLoTCHK_FAIL: R0/0: cmand:  FRU_STR CPLD firmware cannot be 
upgraded in this slot. 

This means that the Cisco ASR1000-SIP10 CPLD card is in slot 5 and has the older CPLD firmware that does not support a field upgrade on slot 5. You must move the card to a different slot before continuing the upgrade procedure.


Note If you chose the option to perform the CPLD upgrade on a non-production Cisco ASR 1004 Router or Cisco ASR 1006 Router, you will not see this error message on those routers.


Step 3 Copy the hw-programmable upgrade package to your hard disk as follows:

copy tftp:/...asr1000-hw-programmables.03.01.00.S.150-1.S.pkg harddisk:

To download this package from Cisco.com, log in with your Cisco.com password to: http://tools.cisco.com/support/downloads/go/Redirect.x?mdfid=268437899.

Step 4 Upgrade the Cisco ASR1000-SIP10 CPLD in slot 2 with the following command:

Router# upgrade hw-programmable CPLD filename harddisk: 
asr1000-hw-programmables.03.01.00.S.150-1.S.pkg 2

Upgrade CPLD on SPA-Inter-Processor 2 from current version 08103002 to 10021901 [confirm] 
This command could take up to 10 minutes, please wait and do not power cycle the box or 
the card (hardware may be unrecoverable). This command also issues a reset to the linecard 
at the end of upgrade.[confirm]

Upgrade cpld hw-programmable on SPA-Inter-Processor 2
Reloading SPA-Inter-Processor 2 to start upgrade

Step 5 The Cisco ASR1000-SIP10 is powered up and CPLD firmware on it is upgraded.

Step 6 After the upgrade is successful, you will receive the following success message on the RP:

Jul 16 15:25:03.625: %CMRP-3-FRU_HWPRG_UPG_SUCCESS: R0/0: cmand:  Hardware programmable 
CPLD on ASR1000-SIP10 in slot 2 was successfully  programed. Card will now be powercycled.

Step 7 The Cisco ASR1000-SIP10 reboots with the latest CPLD programmable firmware and comes online.


Unsupported ASR1000-RP2 and ASR1000-SIP10 Scenarios

This section describes two scenarios where you would receive error messages and under what conditions when inserting a prior released ASR1000-RP2 or ASR1000-SIP10 with an incompatible CPLD version into a Cisco ASR 1013 Router.

Unsupported Active ASR1000-RP2 Requires Upgrade

Configurations—When an Upgrade of CPLD Firmware Is Required

In order to use existing ASR1000-RP2 and ASR1000-SIP10 hardware components in a Cisco ASR 1013 router, you must perform a CPLD upgrade on the RP2 and SIP10 components (with older CPLD) if the following configurations occur:

System powering up with both RPs with older CPLD—The system comes up in redundant mode and the message stating that the CPLD needs upgrade (for both RPs) displays on the console with a clear warning that the system may not work properly unless it is upgraded, and a summary of the instructions to upgrade. A message for standby RP will appear in the standby console and the active RP.

System powering up with one RP with older CPLD—The message will be printed for the RP with older CPLD.

System powering up with RP running latest CPLD and RP with older CPLD inserted—The message will be printed for the newly inserted RP.

System powering up with RP running older CPLD and RP with latest CPLD inserted—The message will be printed when the system powered up before this event. When the second RP is inserted no special action is taken.

System up with RP running older CPLD and RP with older CPLD inserted—The message will be printed when the system powered up before this event. When the second RP is inserted, similar message for the new card will be printed.

Unsupported Standby ASR1000-RP2 or ASR1000-SIP10 Requires Upgrade

This section describes what happens when a standby Cisco ASR1000-RP2 or Cisco ASR1000-SIP10 with an older version of CPLD is inserted into the Cisco ASR 1013 Router. The error message that displays at the console and the message explanation and recommended action are described.
