Upgrading to the Cisco ASR 1000 Series Routers ROMmon Image Release 12.2(33r)XNC0


This document contains procedures for downloading independent ROM monitor (ROMmon) software onto the Route Processor 2 (RP2) on a Cisco ASR 1000 Series Router. This document contains the following sections:

ROMmon Overview

The ROMmon Release 12.2(33r)XNC0 image is provided to customers in cases where a ROMmon upgrade is required, specifically for those Cisco ASR 1000 Series Routers that contain the new RP2 Route Processor. A ROMmon upgrade using the ROMmon Release 12.2(33r)XNC0 image is only necessary in cases where you have an RP2 processor, a system message indicates one of the ROMmon on the Cisco ASR 1000 Series Routers needs an upgrade, or a Cisco technical support representative suggests upgrading ROMmon.

The ROMmon software for Cisco ASR 1000 Series Routers containing the new RP2 processor is asr1000-rommon.rp2.122-33r.XNC0.pkg.

Compatibility Requirements

The asr1000-rommon.rp2.122-33r.XNC0.pkg file can be used to upgrade RP2 as long as the privileged EXEC or diagnostic mode prompt on the router can be accessed.

Upgrading ROMmon Overview

If you are unsure if a ROMmon upgrade is required or if you have installed a new RP2 that requires an upgrade, see the "Checking the Current ROMmon Version" section.

Checking the Current ROMmon Version

Enter the show rom-monitor slot or show platform command to check the version of ROMmon running on any RP, ESP, or SIP in your Cisco ASR 1000 Series Router.

If the following output appears after the show rom-monitor slot or show platform command is entered, the RP2 processor in the specified slot is already running ROMmon Release 12.2(33r)XNC0:

Upgrading ROMmon for an RP2 Processor

Use this procedure to upgrade ROMmon on an RP2 processor in a Cisco ASR 1000 Series Router:


Step 1 (Optional) Enter the show platform command or the show rom-monitor slot command for each RP2 processor in the router to see the current version of ROMmon currently on the hardware. See the "Checking the Current ROMmon Version" section for information about interpreting this output.

Step 2 If the ROMmon image has not been copied onto the router, copy the asr1000-rommon.rp2.122-33r.XNC0.pkg file that was made available as part of this special release onto the bootflash: or usb[0-1]: file system using the copy source-URL destination-URL command.

Step 3 Enter the dir file-system command to confirm the file was copied into the desired directory.

Step 4 Enter the upgrade rom-monitor filename URL slot command to begin the ROMmon image upgrade, where URL is the path to the ROMmon file and slot specifies the hardware that will receive the ROMmon upgrade.


Note If there is more than one RP2 processor in the Cisco ASR 1000 Series Router, you can use the upgrade rom-monitor filename URL all command to upgrade all RP2 processors.



Caution Do not remove hardware, turn off power, or interrupt the router in any way during the ROMmon upgrade. Although the Cisco ASR 1006 Router should be able to recover from most interruptions during the ROMmon upgrade, certain scenarios may cause unpredictable problems.

Step 5 Messages regarding the upgrade will appear on the console. Once these messages have stopped and the router prompt is available, enter the hw-module slot slot reload command to reload the hardware that was upgraded. The ROMmon upgrade is not complete for any piece of hardware until that piece of hardware is reloaded.


Note The hw-module slot slot reload command cannot be used to reload an active RP.
If you must reload an active RP to complete a ROMmon upgrade, reload the RP using one of the following methods:
- Enter reload to reload the entire router.
- Force a switchover using the redundancy force-switchover command, and then enter the hw-module slot slot reload command on the RP after it has become the standby RP.


Step 6 Enter the show platform command or the show rom-monitor slot command to confirm the ROMmon has been upgraded.


Note The versions of ROMmon in this example are provided for illustrative purposes only.
