Online Offline Diagnostics— Field Diagnostic Image 1.1 Release Notes for Cisco 10000 Series Routers
The purpose of this document is to provide information regarding the requirements for the Online Offline Diagnostics (OOD) Field Diagnostic image (c10k-fdiagslc-mz.1.1.bin).
This document contains the following sections:
OOD Field Diagnostic Image Overview
An OOD Field Diagnostic image is used to test and verify hardware problems. An OOD Field Diagnostic image is downloaded from Cisco.com onto the hardware that needs to be tested. It is important to note that a single version of a Field Diagnostic image can work on multiple Cisco IOS release trains.
For instructions on using an OOD Field Diagnostic image on a Cisco 10000 series router, see the Online Offline Diagnostics—Field Diagnostics on Cisco 10000 Series Routers User's Guide.
This Field Diagnostic image can also be used to test some Cisco 10000 series line cards operating in a Cisco uBR10000 series router. For instructions on using an OOD Field Diagnostic image on a Cisco uBR10000 Series Router, see the Online Offline Diagnostics—Field Diagnostics on Cisco uBR10000 Series Routers User's Guide.
Hardware and Software Requirements
The following tables provide information regarding which hardware can be tested using OOD Field Diagnostic image 1.1 and the Cisco IOS release where support for this hardware was added. Table 1 provides the list of line cards that can be tested using this Field Diagnostic image when the line cards are being used in a Cisco 10000 series router. Table 2 provides the list of line cards that can be tested using this Field Diagnostic image when the line cards are being used in a Cisco uBR10000 series router.

External Loopback Test on Channelized T3 Line Card Notes
For the Channelized T3 line card, external loopback tests cannot be run using the port keyword option in the diagnostic start command. Instead, external loopback tests can be run on CT3 line cards by specifying the test IDs that are mapped to specific interfaces on the router. The process for running an external loopback test on a CT3 line card is given below:
Step 1 Cable the CT3 line card for external loopback testing.
Step 2 Enter the show diagnostic content command and locate the tests that contain the L attribute. In the following example, test IDs 119-142 are all external loopback tests. If you want to run a specific external loopback test, note the ports that are supported by tests (for example, if you want to run external loopback tests on port 1, select test IDs 123-126).Router# show diagnostic content slot 6Slot 6: 6cht3-1, 6 portsDiagnostics test suite attributes:B/* - Basic ondemand test / NAP/V/* - Per port test / Per device test / NAD/N/* - Disruptive test / Non-disruptive test / NAS/* - Only applicable to standby unit / NAU/* - Default non-intervention test / NAL/* - External loopback test / NAID Test Name Attributes==== ============================================ ============1) MPC860 Register Test ----------------------> B***U*(Some output removed for readability purposes)119) Ext Lpbk Channelized DS0 Mode (port 0) ----> *****L120) Ext Lpbk Channelized DS1 Mode (port 0) ----> *****L121) Ext Lpbk Multi DS1 Mode (port 0) ----------> *****L122) Ext Lpbk T3 Clear Channel Mode (port 0) ---> *****L123) Ext Lpbk Channelized DS0 Mode (port 1) ----> *****L124) Ext Lpbk Channelized DS1 Mode (port 1) ----> *****L125) Ext Lpbk Multi DS1 Mode (port 1) ----------> *****L126) Ext Lpbk T3 Clear Channel Mode (port 1) ---> *****L127) Ext Lpbk Channelized DS0 Mode (port 2) ----> *****L128) Ext Lpbk Channelized DS1 Mode (port 2) ----> *****L129) Ext Lpbk Multi DS1 Mode (port 2) ----------> *****L130) Ext Lpbk T3 Clear Channel Mode (port 2) ---> *****L131) Ext Lpbk Channelized DS0 Mode (port 3) ----> *****L132) Ext Lpbk Channelized DS1 Mode (port 3) ----> *****L133) Ext Lpbk Multi DS1 Mode (port 3) ----------> *****L134) Ext Lpbk T3 Clear Channel Mode (port 3) ---> *****L135) Ext Lpbk Channelized DS0 Mode (port 4) ----> *****L136) Ext Lpbk Channelized DS1 Mode (port 4) ----> *****L137) Ext Lpbk Multi DS1 Mode (port 4) ----------> *****L138) Ext Lpbk T3 Clear Channel Mode (port 4) ---> *****L139) Ext Lpbk Channelized DS0 Mode (port 5) ----> *****L140) Ext Lpbk Channelized DS1 Mode (port 5) ----> *****L141) Ext Lpbk Multi DS1 Mode (port 5) ----------> *****L142) Ext Lpbk T3 Clear Channel Mode (port 5) ---> *****L
Step 3 Enter the diagnostic start slot slot-number test range command (or subslot in place of slot when appropriate) where range is the test IDs that support the external loopback test. For instance, range would be 123-126 if you were running external loopback tests on port 1.
The following section documents caveats that could occur with the Field Diagnostic image 1.1:
The 8-port Fast Ethernet Half-Height line card cannot load the Field Diagnostic image when the card has been shutdown using the hw-module subslot slot-number/subslot-number command. This problem only occurs when running Cisco IOS Release 12.2(16)BX.
Workaround: Use no hw-module subslot slot-number/subslot-number to activate the line card. After activating the line card, load the Field Diagnostic image onto the line card. This problem can also be avoided by upgrading to Cisco IOS Release 12.2(16)BX1 or a later Cisco IOS release.
When the Field Diagnostic image is loaded onto a line card from disk0 or disk1, the router will crash. This problem only occurs on Cisco IOS Releases 12.2(16)BX and 12.2(16)BX1.
Workaround: Load the Field Diagnostic image onto the line card directly from the TFTP server.

Definitions of Service Request Severity
To ensure that all service requests are reported in a standard format, Cisco has established severity definitions.
Severity 1 (S1)—Your network is "down," or there is a critical impact to your business operations. You and Cisco will commit all necessary resources around the clock to resolve the situation.
Severity 2 (S2)—Operation of an existing network is severely degraded, or significant aspects of your business operation are negatively affected by inadequate performance of Cisco products. You and Cisco will commit full-time resources during normal business hours to resolve the situation.
Severity 3 (S3)—Operational performance of your network is impaired, but most business operations remain functional. You and Cisco will commit resources during normal business hours to restore service to satisfactory levels.
Severity 4 (S4)—You require information or assistance with Cisco product capabilities, installation, or configuration. There is little or no effect on your business operations.
