Warning Only trained and qualified personnel should be allowed to install, replace, or service this equipment.


Required Tools

These tools are required to install the modules in the Catalyst 6500 series switches or the Cisco 7600 series routers:

Number 2 Phillips screwdriver

Antistatic mat or antistatic foam

Your own electrostatic discharge (ESD) grounding strap or the disposable ESD strap included with the system

Removing the Supervisor Engine or Module

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


Caution During this procedure, wear grounded wrist straps to avoid ESD damage to the card.


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


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


Step 1 Disconnect any network interface cables or console port cables attached to the supervisor engine or 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 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 supervisor engine or module.

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


Installing the Supervisor Engine or Module

This section describes how to install modules in the Catalyst 6500 series switches or the Cisco 7600 series routers.


Caution To prevent ESD damage, handle modules by the carrier edges only and wear grounded wrist straps.


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



Note Specific combinations of supervisor engines and modules may not be supported in your chassis. Refer to the release notes of the software version running on your system for specific information on modules and supervisor engine combinations that are not supported.


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


Step 1 Choose a slot for the supervisor engine or module.

Step 2 Verify that there is enough clearance to accommodate any interface equipment that you will connect directly to the supervisor engine or module 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 "Removing the Supervisor Engine or Module" section.

Step 5 Fully open both ejector levers on the new or replacement module. (See Figure 1.)

Step 6 Depending on the orientation of the slots in the chassis (horizontal or vertical), perform one of the following two sets of substeps.

Horizontal slots

a. Position the supervisor engine or module in the slot. (See Figure 1.) Make sure that you align the sides of the module carrier with the slot guides on each side of the slot.

b. Carefully slide the supervisor engine or 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 2.)

c. 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 module's EMI gasket and the module above it. (See Figure 2.)


Caution Do not press down too hard on the levers. They will bend and be damaged.

d. While pressing down, simultaneously close the left and right ejector levers to fully seat the supervisor engine or module in the backplane connector. The ejector levers are fully closed when they are flush with the module faceplate. (See Figure 3.)


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


e. Tighten the two captive installation screws on the supervisor engine or module.


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


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

Figure 2 Clearing the EMI Gasket in a Horizontal Slot Chassis

Figure 3 Ejector Lever Closure in a Horizontal Slot Chassis

Vertical slots

a. Position the supervisor engine or switching module in the slot. (See Figure 4.) Make sure that you align the sides of the switching-module carrier with the slot guides on the top and bottom of the slot.

b. Carefully slide the supervisor engine or 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 5.)

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 5.)


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

d. While pressing on the ejector levers, simultaneously close them to fully seat the supervisor engine or module in the backplane connector. The ejector levers are fully closed when they are flush with the module faceplate. (See Figure 6.)

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


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


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