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


Published: October 23, 2009

This document contains procedures for downloading independent ROM monitor (ROMmon) software onto the Route Processors (RPs), Embedded Service Processors (ESPs), and Shared Port Adapter Interface Processors (SIPs) on the Cisco ASR 1000 Series Aggregation Services Routers. This document contains the following sections:

Resolved Caveats—ROMmon Image Release 12.2(33r)XNC

ROMmon Overview

The ROMmon Release 12.2(33r)XNC image is provided to customers in cases where a ROMmon upgrade is required. Some Cisco ASR 1000 Series Routers may contain an earlier ROMmon version (for example, ROMmon Release 12.2(33r)XN2). A ROMmon upgrade using the ROMmon Release 12.2(33r)XNC image is only necessary in cases where 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 RPs, ESPs, and SIPs can be upgraded collectively or individually using the asr1000-rommon.122-33r.XNC.pkg file.

Compatibility Requirements

The asr1000-rommon.122-33r.XNC.pkg file can be used to upgrade RP, ESP, and SIP ROMmon at any time as long as the privileged EXEC or diagnostic mode prompt on the router can be accessed.

Upgrading ROMmon

This section covers the following topics:

Upgrading ROMmon Overview

Checking the Current ROMmon Version

Upgrading ROMmon for All RPs, ESPs, and SIPs

Upgrading ROMmon for a Single RP, ESP, or SIP

Upgrading ROMmon Overview

The instructions in the "Upgrading ROMmon for a Single RP, ESP, or SIP" section should only be used in cases when an individual ROMmon requires an upgrade and all of the other hardware has already been updated.

If you are unsure if a ROMmon upgrade is required or if you have installed a new RP, ESP, or SIP 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 RP, ESP, or SIP in the specified slot is already running ROMmon Release 12.2(33r)XNC:

If output indicating an earlier ROMmon version or anything appears on the console, a ROMmon upgrade may benefit the RP, ESP, or SIP.

Upgrading ROMmon for All RPs, ESPs, and SIPs

Follow this procedure to upgrade ROMmon for all RPs, ESPs, and SIPs on a Cisco ASR 1000 Series Router:


Step 1 (Optional) Enter the show platform command or the show rom-monitor slot command for each piece of hardware in the router. The output reveals the current ROMmon version, and is especially useful later in this process to help confirm that the previous ROMmon version was upgraded.

This output is also useful to determine if a ROMmon upgrade is required for a particular RP, ESP, or SIP. See the "Checking the Current ROMmon Version" section for information on determining if a ROMmon upgrade is required for the RP, ESP, or SIP based on this output.

Step 2 Copy the asr1000-rommon.122-33r.XNC.pkg file 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 all command to begin the ROMmon image upgrade, where URL is the path to the ROMmon file.


Caution Do not remove hardware, turn off power, or interrupt the router in any way during the ROMmon upgrade. Although the Cisco ASR 1000 Series 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 reload command to reload the router. The ROMmon upgrade is not complete for any piece of hardware until that piece of hardware is reloaded, and using the reload command in this context reloads all hardware on the router.

Step 6 Enter the the show platform command or the show rom-monitor slot command for each piece of hardware in the router to confirm the ROMmon has been upgraded.



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

Upgrading ROMmon for a Single RP, ESP, or SIP

Use this procedure to upgrade ROMmon on a single RP, ESP, or SIP in a Cisco ASR 1000 Series Router:


Step 1 (Optional) Enter the show platform command or the show rom-monitor slot command for each piece of hardware 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.122-33r.XNC.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.


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.
