||Upgrade Golden FPGA for SMAUG|
During the upgrade of an NCS 4000 Network Element from Cisco IOS XR Release 6.1.42 to a later release, 400 Gbps Dense Wavelength Division Multiplexing (DWDM)/Optical Transport Network (OTN)/Packet Universal Line Cards that are equipped with SMAUG Field Programmable Device (FPD) image version 0.08 are unable to complete the needed upgrade and will report an alarm.
A limited number of NCS 4000 400 Gbps DWDM/OTN/Packet Universal Line Cards were manufactured with an incorrect version (0.08) of the SMAUG FPD image in the golden region of the Field Programmable Gate Array (FPGA).
An NCS 4000 software upgrade from Cisco IOS XR Release 6.1.42 to a later release detects that the SMAUG FPD needs to be upgraded, but the upgrade does not complete successfully due to the incorrect image stored in the golden region.
During upgrade of an NCS 4000 Network Element from Cisco IOS XR Release 6.1.42 to a later release, some 400 Gbps DWDM/OTN/Packet Universal Line Cards might report a SMAUG FPD "Need Upgrade" error message that cannot be cleared.
Error message example:
0/1 NCS4K-4H-OPW-QC2 0.1 SMAUG NEED UPGD 0.08 0.08
This issue does not require replacement of affected line cards. Instead, Cisco has provided a solution for this issue via a Software Maintenance Upgrade (SMU).
Use this table to determine the appropriate SMU for a particular Cisco IOS XR release.

Follow this procedure to identify and upgrade an affected line card.

0/RP1 NCS4K-RP (slave) 22 CAT1919B0C9 0.1 CARD_READY
Note: The output lists the location, the card type, the physical slot identification ("BPID"), and the serial number for each installed line card.
Referring to the step 1 output, use the values in the Card Type column to identify which of the installed line cards are 400G Line Cards. If a Card Type value matches an item in the Products Affected table, that card is a 400G Line Card.
For each 400G Line Card, check the serial number (the value in the HW Serial Number column) to see if that 400G Line Card is affected by this issue.
Note: To check a serial number, use the link provided in the "Serial Number Validation" section, below.
Note: This issue might affect more than one 400G Line Card in the NCS 4000 chassis, so be sure to check the serial number of each 400G Line Card that you identified in step 2.
When you identify an affected 400G Line Card, make a note of its location (for example, "0/1") and the BPID value that represents its physical slot number (for example, "2").
Upgrade each affected 400G Line Card
Note: Perform the steps in this section for each affected 400G Line Card in the NCS 4000 chassis.
Trigger the FPD upgrade:
upgrade hw-module location <location> fpd SMAUG force
where <location> represents the location of the affected line card (for example, "0/1").
Note: This command downloads version 0.10 of the SMAUG FPGA production image.
Install and activate the appropriate SMU:
install add source harddisk: <SMU location>
install activate <SMU name>
Note: This SMU is a Process-Restart SMU and therefore does not impact traffic.
Identify the active line card location:

Active Node Standby Node
0/RP0 0/RP1 (Node Ready, NSR:Not Configured)
0/LC0 0/LC1 (Node Ready, NSR:Not Configured)
Attach the active line card location:
attach location <active LC location 0/LC0 or 0/LC1>
Downgrade the SMAUG FPGA production image from the 0.08 version to the 0.05 version:
grima_upg –1 <BPID>
where <BPID> is the BPID value that represents the physical slot number of the affected line card.
Confirm that the SMAUG FPGA production image was changed to the 0.05 version:
show hw-module fpd | i SMAUG
RP/0/RP0:ios#show hw-module fpd | i SMAUG
Tue Aug 28 05:59:50.878 UTC
0/1 NCS4K-4H-OPW-QC2 0.1 SMAUG CURRENT 0.08 0.05 >>>
Reload the line card:
admin hw-module location <location> reload
where <location> represents the location of the affected 400G Line Card.
Note: This command upgrades the line card at the specified location with version 0.10 of the SMAUG FPGA production image.
If you identified more than one affected 400G Line Card in this NCS 4000 chassis, repeat the steps in this section for the next card.
When you have upgraded all affected 400G Line Cards, continue to the next section.
Uninstall and deactivate the SMU
Note: Do not perform the steps in this section until after you have upgraded all affected 400G Line Cards successfully.
Uninstall the SMU:
install deactivate <SMU name>
Remove the SMU from the NCS 4000 Network Element:
install remove <SMU name>
Serial Number Validation
To determine if this issue impacts your devices, enter the serial number of each device you want to check in the Serial Number Validation Tool.
