Warning When installing or replacing the unit, the ground connection must always be made first and disconnected last. Statement 1046


Step 5 After ensuring that all wire connections are secure, reinstall the terminal block cover.


Replacing the Supervisor Engine

Before you can power up the system, you need to remove the supervisor engine from slot 1 (if a redundant supervisor engine is present, remove it from slot 2) and install the Supervisor Engine 720 or the Supervisor Engine 32 in slot 5 or 6.

Removing the Supervisor Engine

This section describes how to remove an existing supervisor engine from a chassis slot.

To remove a supervisor engine from the chassis, perform these steps:


Step 1 Disconnect any network interface cables attached to the supervisor engine.

Step 2 Verify that the captive installation screws on all of the modules in the chassis are tight. This step assures that the space created by the removed supervisor engine 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 supervisor engine.

Step 4 Place your thumbs on the ejector levers located at the top and bottom of the supervisor engine, and simultaneously rotate the levers outward to unseat the supervisor engine from the backplane connector.

Step 5 Grasp the edges of the supervisor engine, and slide the supervisor engine straight out of the slot. Do not touch the module circuitry.

Step 6 Place the supervisor engine on an antistatic mat or antistatic foam.

Step 7 If the slot is to remain empty, install a module filler plate to keep dust out of the chassis and to maintain proper airflow through the chassis.


Installing the Supervisor Engine

This section describes how to install the Supervisor Engine 720 or the Supervisor Engine 32 in the Catalyst 6509-NEB switch and the Cisco OSR-7609 Router.


Caution To prevent ESD damage, handle modules by the carrier edges only.


Note The Supervisor Engine 720 or Supervisor Engine 32 must be installed in slot 5 or 6 of the Catalyst 6509NEB or Cisco OSR7609 chassis.


To install the supervisor engine in the chassis, perform these steps:


Step 1 Choose a slot for the supervisor engine.

Step 2 Verify that there is enough clearance to accommodate any interface equipment that you will connect directly to the supervisor engine ports. If possible, place modules between empty slots that contain only module filler plates.

Step 3 Verify that the captive installation screws are tightened on all modules installed in the chassis. This assures that the EMI gaskets on all modules are fully compressed in order to maximize the opening space for the new module or 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 4 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 Supervisor Engine" section.

Step 5 Fully open both ejector levers on the supervisor engine. (See Figure 15.)

Step 6 Position the supervisor engine in the slot. (See Figure 15.) Make sure that you align the sides of the module carrier with the slot guides on the top and bottom of the slot.

Step 7 Carefully slide the supervisor engine into the slot until the EMI gasket along the right edge of the supervisor engine 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 supervisor engine faceplate. (See Figure 16.)

Step 8 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 supervisor engine's EMI gasket and the module adjacent to it. (See Figure 16.)


Caution Do not exert too much pressure on the ejector levers. They will bend and be damaged.

Step 9 While pressing on the ejector levers, simultaneously close them to fully seat the supervisor engine in the backplane connector. The ejector levers are fully closed when they are flush with the supervisor engine faceplate. (See Figure 17.)

Step 10 Tighten the two captive installation screws on the supervisor engine.


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

Powering Up the System

This section describes how to power up the system.

AC-Input Systems

DC-Input Systems

AC-Input Systems

To power up your AC-input system, follow these steps:


Step 1 Plug the power cord into the power supply, and tighten the screw on the cable retention device.

Step 2 Connect the other end of the power cord to an AC-input power source.


Caution In a system with dual power supplies, connect each power supply to a separate input source. In case of a power source failure, the second source will most likely still be available.

Step 3 Turn the power switch to the On (|) position on the power supply. Switching the power switch to On also engages a pawl that locks the power supply in the bay.


DC-Input Systems

To power up your DC-input system, follow these steps:


Step 1 Remove the tape from the circuit breaker switch handle, and restore power by moving the circuit breaker switch handle to the On (|) position.

Step 2 Turn the power switch to the On (|) position on the power supply. Turning the power switch on also engages a pawl that locks the power supply in the chassis.


Verifying Installation

After you have powered up the switch, verify the operation of the newly installed hardware as follows:


Step 1 Verify power supply operation by checking that the power supply front panel LEDs are in these states:

INPUT OK LED is green

FAN OK LED is green

OUTPUT FAIL LED is not lit

42V LED is green

If the LEDs indicate a power problem, refer to the installation guide for your hardware platform for troubleshooting information.

Step 2 Verify the high speed fan tray operation by checking that the fan tray LEDs are in these:

INPUT POWER GOOD LED is green (there is one LED for each power input; if both inputs are used, verify both LEDs)

FAN FAIL LED is green

If the LEDs indicate a problem, refer to the installation guide for your hardware platform for troubleshooting information.

Step 3 Verify that the supervisor engine STATUS LED is lit. Check the STATUS LED periodically. If the STATUS LED changes from orange to green, the supervisor engine has successfully completed the boot process and is now online. If the STATUS LED remains orange or turns red, the supervisor engine has not successfully completed the boot process and may have encountered an error.
