You must determine if an FPD image upgrade is needed using the show
fpd command and perform the upgrade, if needed, under the following circumstances:
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 If you upgrade to a newer version of the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 up-rev(V1.10),
downgrade to (V0.09) is "OPTIONAL". Use "upgrade hw-module fpd force" 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.
The use of the
when performing a FPD upgrade is not recommended except under explicit
direction from Cisco engineering or TAC.
