Installing and Removing the Module

This section describes the procedures for installing and removing the module:

Installing the Module

Removing the Module

Installing the Module

This section describes how to install the module into the Catalyst 6500 series switch or the Cisco 7600 series router.


Note All modules, including the supervisor engine (if you have redundant supervisor engines), support hot swapping. You can add, replace, or remove modules without interrupting the system power or causing other software or interfaces to shut down. For more information about hot-swapping modules, see the Catalyst 6500 Series Switch Module Installation Guide.



Warning During this procedure, wear grounding wrist straps to avoid ESD damage to the card. Do not directly touch the backplane with your hand or any metal tool, or you could shock yourself. Statement 94

To install the module into the Catalyst 6500 series switch or the Cisco 7600 series router, perform these steps:


Step 1 Make sure that you take the necessary precautions to prevent ESD damage.

Step 2 Choose a slot for the module.

Step 3 Verify that there is enough clearance to accommodate any interface equipment that you will connect directly to the module ports. If possible, place modules between empty slots that contain only module filler plates.

Step 4 Verify that the captive installation screws are tightened on all modules that are installed in the chassis.

This action ensures that the EMI gaskets on all modules are fully compressed to maximize the opening space for the replacement module.


Note If the captive installation screws are loose, the EMI gaskets on the installed modules will push adjacent modules toward the open slot, reducing the opening size and making it difficult to install the replacement module.


Step 5 Remove the module filler plate by removing the two Phillips pan-head screws from the filler plate. (To remove a module, see the "Removing the Module" section.)

Step 6 Fully open both ejector levers on the new or replacement module. (See Figure 5.)

Step 7 Depending on the orientation of the slots in the chassis (horizontal or vertical), perform one of the following sets of substeps:

Horizontal slots

a. Position the module in the slot. Make sure that you align the sides of the module carrier with the slot guides on each side of the slot. (See Figure 5.)

a. Carefully slide the module into the slot until the EMI gasket along the top edge of the module makes contact with the module in the slot above it and both ejector levers have closed to approximately 45 degrees with respect to the module faceplate. (See Figure 6.)

Figure 5 Positioning the Module in a Horizontal Slot Chassis

Figure 6 Clearing the EMI Gasket in a Horizontal Slot Chassis

b. Using the thumb and forefinger of each hand, grasp the two ejector levers and press down to create a small (0.040 inch [1 mm]) gap between the EMI gasket and the module above it. (See Figure 6.)


Caution Pressing down too firmly on the levers will bend and damage them.

c. While pressing down, simultaneously close the left and right ejector levers to fully seat the module in the backplane connector. The ejector levers are fully closed when they are flush with the module faceplate. (See Figure 7.)

Figure 7 Ejector Lever Closure in a Horizontal Slot Chassis


Note Failure to fully seat the module in the backplane connector can result in error messages.


d. Tighten the two captive installation screws on the module.


Note Make sure that the ejector levers are fully closed before tightening the captive installation screws.


Vertical slots

a. Position the module in the slot. (See Figure 8.) Make sure that you align the sides of the module carrier with the slot guides on the top and bottom of the slot.

Figure 8 Positioning the Module in a Vertical Slot Chassis

b. Carefully slide the module into the slot until the EMI gasket along the right edge of the module makes contact with the module in the slot adjacent to it and both ejector levers have closed to approximately 45 degrees with respect to the module faceplate. (See Figure 9.)

c. Using the thumb and forefinger of each hand, grasp the two ejector levers and exert a slight pressure to the left, deflecting the module approximately 0.040 inches (1 mm) to create a small gap between the module's EMI gasket and the module adjacent to it. (See Figure 9.)

Figure 9 Clearing the EMI Gasket in a Vertical Slot Chassis


Caution Exerting too much pressure on the ejector levers will bend and damage them.

d. While pressing on the ejector levers, simultaneously close them to fully seat the module in the backplane connector. The ejector levers are fully closed when they are flush with the module faceplate. (See Figure 10.)

Figure 10 Ejector Lever Closure in a Vertical Slot Chassis

e. Tighten the two captive installation screws on the module.


Note Make sure that the ejector levers are fully closed before tightening the captive installation screws.



This completes the module installation procedure.

Removing the Module

This section describes how to remove the module from a Catalyst 6500 series switch or the Cisco 7600 series router.


Caution During this procedure, wear grounding wrist straps to avoid ESD damage to the module. Do not directly touch the backplane with your hand or any metal tool, or you could shock yourself.


Warning Invisible laser radiation may be emitted from disconnected fibers or connectors. Do not stare into beams or view directly with optical instruments. Statement 1051

To remove a module from the chassis, perform these steps:


Step 1 Disconnect any network interface cables that are attached to the module.

Step 2 Verify that the captive installation screws on all of the modules in the chassis are tight.

This step assures that the space that is created by the removed module is maintained.


Note If the captive installation screws are loose, the electromagnetic interference (EMI) gaskets on the installed modules will push the modules toward the open slot, reducing the opening size and making it difficult to install the replacement module.


Step 3 Loosen the two captive installation screws on the module.

Step 4 Depending on the orientation of the slots in the chassis (horizontal or vertical), perform one of the following sets of substeps:

Horizontal slots

a. Place your thumbs on the left and right ejector levers, and simultaneously rotate the levers outward to unseat the module from the backplane connector.

b. Grasp the front edge of the module, and slide the module part of the way out of the slot. Place your other hand under the module to support the weight of the module. Do not touch the module circuitry.

Vertical slots

a. Place your thumbs on the ejector levers that are located at the top and bottom of the module, and simultaneously rotate the levers outward to unseat the module from the backplane connector.

b. Grasp the edges of the module, and slide the module straight out of the slot. Do not touch the module circuitry.

Step 5 Place the module on an antistatic mat or antistatic foam, or immediately reinstall it in another slot.

Step 6 If the slot from which you removed the module is to remain empty, install a module filler plate to keep dust out of the chassis and to maintain proper airflow through the chassis.


Warning Blank faceplates and cover panels serve three important functions: they prevent exposure to hazardous voltages and currents inside the chassis; they contain electromagnetic interference (EMI) that might disrupt other equipment; and they direct the flow of cooling air through the chassis. Do not operate the system unless all cards, faceplates, front covers, and rear covers are in place. Statement 1029

RJ-21 Port Connector and Cabling Specifications


Warning



If the symbol of suitability with an overlaid cross appears above a port, you must not connect the port to a public network that follows the European Union standards. Connecting the port to this type of public network can cause severe personal injury or can damage the unit. Statement 1031



Caution Do not connect the WS-SVC-CMM-24FXS port adapter directly to a voicemail server, IVR application, or fax server if the servers have unused wiring pairs with voltage on them. We recommend that you connect the 25-pair cables to punch-down blocks and cross connect to the voicemail, IVR, or fax servers. If you do not use punch-down blocks and cross connects to the WS-SVC-CMM-24FXS port adapter, you could damage the port adapter. For example, the FLT-8 card for the Octel 250 uses every other pair for its voice ports. The unused pairs have +36 VDC across ring-to-ground in an on-hook condition, and this high voltage has been known to damage the WS-SVC-CMM-24FXS port adapter.

Use a standard RJ-21 Category 5 telco connector and cable to connect to the RJ-21 connector. Two types of RJ-21 connectors are shown in Figure 15 and Figure 16. A pinout for the module's RJ-21 connector is provided in Table 7.

Accessing the Port Adapter Ports

From the module command-line interface (CLI), you identify each port adapter by interface_name followed by slot_num/port_num. For example, to configure the first port on a 6-port T1 port adapter that is installed in slot 2, specify T1 2/0. For the second port, specify T1 2/1, and so on.

Configuring the Port Adapter Ports

Configuring the module interfaces is similar to configuring the voice interfaces on other Cisco products. module interface configuration requirements are dependent on your AVVID network requirements.


Note The module requires a static IP address. Obtaining an IP address through a DHCP server is not supported. You assign an IP address to the module Gigabit Ethernet backplane interface through the CLI by using the interface GigabitEthernet1/0 command.


Configuring the Port Adapter Clock Source

The module T1/E1 port adapter clock configuration is the same as the configuration on many other Cisco gateways. The CLI commands that are used for configuring the clock are identical to other gateways. To set clocking for individual T1 or E1 ports, enter the clock source command in controller configuration mode as follows:

clock source {line [primary | secondary {1..17}] | internal}

To return to the default configuration, use the no clock source command.


Note We do not recommend that you use the clock source line command. You must enter either the clock source line primary command or the clock source line secondary command.


If you configure the clock source for a port adapter port as primary, the Rx clock that is received from the remote end is used to supply the clock for all module T1/E1 ports that are configured for the internal clock on that module. Only one port adapter port can be configured as the primary clock source on a module. If you do not configure any of the port adapter ports as the primary clock source, the internal TDM system clock uses the free running clock on one of the port adapters.

If you configure the clock source for a port adapter port as secondary, you must also specify the priority preference level of the source. The system automatically switches among the secondary sources to use the highest level of preference that has the Rx clock available when the specified primary clock source is absent.

If you configure the clock source for a port adapter port as internal, the port uses the clock that is provided by the system. This system clock could be a module internal clock or the Rx clock from the port that is configured as the primary clock source.

Disaster Recovery for Module Software Upgrades

This section describes how to recover in the event that the CMM software image fails to load properly. If there is a corrupted image in the CMM bootflash, the CMM does not come online and stays at the ROMMON prompt. You will need to perform these steps to replace the corrupted image:


Step 1 Copy a new image to the supervisor engine flash memory.

Step 2 Download the image from the supervisor engine to the CMM bootflash.

Step 3 Configure the system by using the power management bits to control which image is booted when the CMM is reset.



Note The downloaded image must be the same version that was previously operating on the CMM. Failure to perform the disaster recovery with the same image version could result in corrupted port adapters.



Note To successfully perform disaster recovery on the Supervisor Engine 720, you must have the ROMMON version 12.2(1r)T2 on the CMM.


Use Table 8 for configuring the filename aliases and the boot or power management options for different Catalyst 6500 series supervisor engines.

Disaster Recovery for Supervisor Engines Running Cisco IOS Software


Tip If the CMM image fails to load properly, a crash information file is generated and then saved in the CMM bootflash.


Disaster Recovery for Supervisor Engines Running Catalyst Operating System Software

To perform disaster recovery on systems that use the Catalyst operating system software on the supervisor engine, perform these steps:


Step 1 Before performing the disaster recovery, remove the port adapters from the CMM.

See the "Removing and Replacing Port Adapters" section for removal procedures.

Step 2 Enter the copy tftp [device] command to copy the golden image for the CMM to the supervisor engine flash memory where [device] can be any flash file system on the supervisor engine.

Step 3 Enter the set filename-alias [alias-name] [device]:[golden-image] command to translate the filename of the downloaded file.

The [golden-image] is the file to be downloaded, and the [device] can be any flash file system on the supervisor engine. See Table 8 for configuring the appropriate [alias-name] corresponding to the supervisor engine type in use.

Step 4 Enter the set module power down [mod] [pm_option] command to power down the CMM.

See Table 8 for configuring the appropriate [pm_option] corresponding to the supervisor engine type in use.

Step 5 Enter the set poll disable command to disable polling.

Step 6 Enter the set module power up [mod] command to power up the CMM.

When the CMM powers up, disaster recovery is complete.

Step 7 After you complete the disaster recovery, enter the clear filename-alias [alias-name] command to terminate the filename translation.

Step 8 Set the power management option for the CMM to zero (0).

This step is necessary to prevent the download mechanism from triggering every time that the CMM is reset.

Step 9 Enter the set poll enable command to enable polling.


Disaster Recovery for Supervisor Engines Running Cisco IOS Software


Note This procedure requires supervisor engine software release 12.2(18)SFX or later.


To perform disaster recovery on systems that use Cisco IOS software on the supervisor engine, perform these steps:


Step 1 Before performing the disaster recovery, remove the port adapters from the CMM.

See the "Removing and Replacing Port Adapters" section for removal procedures.

Step 2 Enter the copy tftp [device] command to copy the golden image for the CMM to the supervisor engine flash memory where [device] can be any flash file system on the supervisor engine.

Step 3 Under the CLI Config mode, enter the tftp-server [device]:[golden-image] alias [alias-name] command to translate the filename of the downloaded file.

The [golden-image] is the file to be downloaded, and the [device] can be any flash file system on the supervisor engine. See Table 8 for configuring the appropriate [alias-name] corresponding to the supervisor engine type in use.

Step 4 Under the CLI exec mode, enter the hw-module module [mod] boot [pm_option] command to set the power management option for the CMM.

See Table 8 for configuring the appropriate [pm_option] corresponding to the supervisor engine type in use.

Step 5 Enter the hw-module module [mod] reset command to reset the module.

When the CMM powers up, disaster recovery is complete.

Step 6 After you complete the disaster recovery, under CLI config mode, enter the no tftp-server [device]:[golden-image] command to remove the filename translation.

Step 7 Set the power management option for the CMM to zero (0) by entering the command hw-module module [mod] boot config-register.

This step is necessary to prevent the download mechanism from triggering every time that the CMM is reset.


Password Recovery

Before performing the password recovery procedure, you must console into the CMM by performing these steps:


Step 1 Remove the CMM from the chassis. For removal information, see the "Removing the Module" section.


Note There are two RJ-45 ports on the CMM motherboard. The second one towards the edge or end of the motherboard is the console port.


Step 2 Connect a straight-through cable, not a regular rolled flat cable, to the console port on the motherboard.

Step 3 Remove the module directly above the CMM to allow a space for the console cable to run from the CMM motherboard to outside of the chassis.

Step 4 Reinstall the CMM into the chassis.

Step 5 Perform the recovery procedure in Password Recovery Procedure for the Catalyst 6500/6000 SeriesSwitches Running Cisco IOS System Software to recover the password for the CMM.
