Connect to the XR VM Console Port and Power the Router
Use the XR VM console port on the Route Processor (RP) to connect to a new router . If required, subsequent connections can be established through the management port, after it is configured.
There are the three console ports on the RP. Console port 2 is for the XR VM.
Connect a terminal to the XR VM console port of the RP.
Start the terminal emulation program on your workstation.
The console settings are 115200 bps, 8 data bits, 1 stop bit and no parity.
Power on the router.
Press the power switch up to turn on the power shelves. As the router boots up, you will see boot process details on the console screen of the terminal emulation program.
When the system prompts you to enter the root-system username, it indicates that the boot process is complete. If the prompt does not appear, wait for a while to give the router more time to complete the initial boot procedure, then press Enter.
What to do next
Specify the root username and password.
