Proceed to the "Upgrading the Supervisor Engine 2 Boot ROM" section to install the boot ROM.

Upgrading the Supervisor Engine 2 Boot ROM


Caution Always use an electrostatic discharge (ESD) wrist strap when handling modules or when coming into contact with internal components.

To upgrade the boot ROM in the Supervisor Engine 2, follow these steps:


Step 1 Locate the boot ROM on the Supervisor Engine 2 (see Figure 3).

Figure 3 Supervisor Engine Boot ROM Location

Step 2 To extract the boot ROM from the motherboard, slide the tips of the PLCC extractor tool into the socket extraction slots until the angled tips are beneath the boot ROM device (see Figure 4).

Holding the tool as shown in Figure 4, remove the chip from the socket by squeezing the handles of the extraction tool evenly and pulling the boot ROM device straight upward until it is released from the socket. Use care not to damage the boot ROM device or the socket.

Figure 4 Supervisor Engine Boot ROM Extraction

Step 3 Place the extracted boot ROM in an antistatic bag.

Step 4 Carefully remove the new boot ROM from its packaging.

Step 5 Insert the new boot ROM in the boot ROM socket on the motherboard. Be sure to orient the boot ROM so that the notched corner of the chip matches the notched corner of the socket (see Figure 5). Press the boot ROM into place evenly and firmly until it is completely seated in the socket.


Caution Make sure that you orient the chip to the socket correctly. If the chip is oriented to the socket improperly, you can damage both the chip and the socket.

Figure 5 Boot ROM Insertion


Proceed to the "Upgrading the Bootflash Device" section to upgrade the bootflash device on the Supervisor Engine 2.

Upgrading the Bootflash Device

To upgrade the bootflash device from 16 MB to 32 MB, follow these steps:


Step 1 Note the location of the bootflash device SIMM (see Figure 6).

Figure 6 Bootflash Device SIMM Location

Step 2 Pull the locking spring clips on both sides of the bootflash device SIMM holder outward and tilt the SIMM free of the clips (see Figure 7). Be careful not to break the clips on the SIMM connector.

Figure 7 Removing and Installing the Bootflash Device SIMM

Step 3 Hold the SIMM by its edges and gently lift and remove it, placing it on an antistatic mat or foam (see Figure 8).

Figure 8 Handling a SIMM


Caution The SIMMs are sensitive components that are susceptible to ESD damage. To prevent ESD damage, handle the SIMM by the edges only; avoid touching the memory modules, pins, or traces (the metal fingers along the connector edge of the SIMM). (See Figure 8.)

Step 4 Remove the upgrade SIMM from the antistatic container.

Step 5 Hold the SIMM by its edges (see Figure 8).

Step 6 Tilt the SIMM to approximately the same angle as the socket, and insert the connector edge into the socket.


Caution When inserting the SIMM, use firm but not excessive pressure. If you damage a socket, you will have to return the Supervisor Engine 2 to Cisco for repair.

Step 7 Press the SIMM down until it is secured by the spring clips (see Figure 9).

Figure 9 Installing the SIMM

Step 8 When the SIMM is installed, check the two alignment holes and ensure that the spring retainer is visible. If it is not, the SIMM is not seated properly. If the SIMM appears misaligned, carefully remove it and reseat it in the socket. Push the SIMM firmly back into the socket until the retainer springs snap into place.



Note If you are upgrading the memory on the Supervisor Engine 2, do that now before you reinstall the MSFC2. For more information, refer to the Catalyst 6500 Series Supervisor Engine 2 Memory Upgrade Installation Note.

If you are not upgrading the memory, or if you have already upgraded the memory, proceed to the "Installing the MSFC2" section.


Installing the MSFC2


Note If you did not remove the MSFC2 from the supervisor engine, proceed to Step 6 to install the supervisor engine.


To install the MSFC2 on the Supervisor Engine 2, follow these steps:


Step 1 Align the MSFC2 with the one male standoff on the Supervisor Engine 2 (see Figure 10). Make sure that the remaining mounting holes on the MSFC2 are aligned with the remaining standoffs.

Figure 10 Male Standoff Location on the Supervisor Engine

Step 2 Ensure that the connectors on the MSFC2 are aligned with the connectors on the Supervisor Engine 2 (see Figure 11).

Figure 11 MSFC2 Connectors

Step 3 Carefully seat the MSFC2 onto the Supervisor Engine 2 (see Figure 12).

Step 4 Using your thumbs, apply pressure at the locations shown in Figure 12 to ensure that the MSFC2 is securely seated on the Supervisor Engine 2.


Caution Use care not to damage the connectors on the Supervisor Engine 2. If you damage a connector, you will have to return the Supervisor Engine 2 to Cisco for repair.

Figure 12 Seating the MSFC2 on the Supervisor Engine 2


Caution Ensure that the MSFC2 is securely seated before you install and tighten the cap nut and securing screws. If you use the screws to seat the MSFC2, you could possibly warp the card.

Step 5 Use a Phillips-head screwdriver to install the screws and cap nut that secure the MSFC2 to the Supervisor Engine 2 (see Figure 13).


Caution You must install the cap nut and all screws. The screws provide grounding between the MSFC2 and the Supervisor Engine 2. Failure to install the cap nut and all screws will invalidate the safety approvals and can cause fire and electrical hazards.

Figure 13 Installing the Screws and Cap Nut

Step 6 Install the Supervisor Engine 2 in the Catalyst 6500 series switch (refer to the Catalyst 6500 Series Switch Module Installation Guide for installation instructions).

If you have a redundant Supervisor Engine 2, go to the "Removing the MSFC2" section and follow the directions to upgrade the boot ROM and bootflash device on the redundant Supervisor Engine 2.

Step 7 Enter the show module mod command to verify that the Supervisor Engine 2 Fw version is release 6.1(3).

Step 8 Format the newly installed bootflash device (refer to the Catalyst 6500 Series Switch Software Configuration Guide).
