You must determine
if an FPD image upgrade is needed using the
fpd command and perform the upgrade, if you
migrate the software to a later
Cisco IOS XR software release
In the event that
there is an FPD incompatibility with your card, you may receive an error
message. If you upgrade to a newer version of the
Cisco IOS XR software and there is an FPD incompatibility, you receive the following
LC/0/1/CPU0:Dec 23 16:33:47.945 : spa_192_jacket_v2:
%PLATFORM-UPGRADE_FPD-4-DOWN_REV : spa fpga2 instance 0 is down-rev (V0.6),
upgrade to (V1.0). Use the "upgrade hw-module fpd" CLI in admin mode.
If the FPD image on
the card is newer then what is required by the currently running
Cisco IOS XR software image on the router, you receive the following error message:
LC/0/1/CPU0:Dec 23 16:33:47.955 : spa_192_jacket_v2:
%PLATFORM-UPGRADE_FPD-4-UP_REV : spa fpga instance 1 is severely up-rev (V2.1),
downgrade to (V1.6). Use the "upgrade hw-module fpd" CLI in admin mode.
You should perform
the FPD upgrade procedure if you receive such messages. Cards may not function
properly if FPD incompatibilities are not resolved.
An error message
is displayed (as shown below) when version-34 of FPGA is upgraded to
version-37. This is only for CRS-X linecards. However, when the user upgrades
to version-37, from any other lower version (other than version-34), this
failure message is not displayed. Even though we see this failure message ,FPD
upgrade will complete successfully and after a power cycle/reload it will
properly reflect the upgraded version. There is no functionality impact.

The use of the

direction from Cisco engineering or TAC.
