Warning

Only trained and qualified personnel should be allowed to install, replace, or service this equipment.

Statement 1030



Warning

Ultimate disposal of this product should be handled according to all national laws and regulations.

Statement 1040


Identifying Switching Module Slots

The slot numbers on the fan tray front panel help you easily identify the switching module slots or the non-supervisor slots. Install switching modules only in these slots.

Figure 9. Switching Module Slot Numbers on the Fan Tray's Front Panel. The following figure shows the switching module slots in a Catalyst 9407R Switch, where the fan tray model number is C9407-FAN. Fan tray assemblies are chassis-specific and other chassis fan tray front panels have similar numbering that indicates the switching module slots available on the corresponding chassis.

Required Tools

You will need these tools to install or remove supervisor modules and switching modules

  • Your own ESD-prevention equipment or the disposable grounding wrist strap included with all upgrade kits, field-replaceable units (FRUs), and spares.

  • Antistatic mat or antistatic bag

  • Number 1 and number 2 Phillips screwdrivers for the captive installation screws on most modules

  • 3/16-inch flat-blade screwdriver for the captive installation screws on some modules

Removing the Switching Module


Warning

Hazardous voltage or energy is present on the backplane when the system is operating. Use caution when servicing. Statement 1034



Warning

Invisible laser radiation may be emitted from disconnected fibers or connectors. Do not stare into beams or view directly with optical instruments. Statement 1051


Before you begin

You will need a blank module filler plate (C9400-S-BLANK) if the module slot is to remain empty.

Procedure


Step 1

Disconnect any network interface cables attached to the module ports.

Step 2

If the module is equipped with removable optical transceivers, immediately install dust plugs into the transceiver’s optical bores. This prevents possible dust contamination, which can affect port performance.

Step 3

With a Phillips screwdriver, completely loosen the two captive screws located at each end of the module faceplate.

Step 4

Grasp the left and right ejector levers and simultaneously pivot the levers outward to eject the module from the backplane connector.

1

Captive installation screws that must be loosened

2

Ejector levers that must be pivoted out

Step 5

Grasp the module front panel with one hand, and place your other hand under the module (on the metal carrier) to support and guide it out of the slot. Do not touch the printed circuit boards or connector pins.

Step 6

Pull the module straight out of the slot, keeping one hand under the module to support it.

Step 7

Immediately place the removed module on an antistatic mat, in an antistatic bag, or install it in another slot.

Step 8

If the slot is to remain empty, install a blank module filler plate to keep dust out of the chassis, maintain proper airflow through the chassis, preserve electromagnetic interference (EMI) integrity, and to prevent exposure to high current inside the chassis.

Note 

Blank faceplates and cover panels serve three important functions: they prevent exposure to hazardous voltages and currents inside the chassis; they contain electromagnetic interference (EMI) that might disrupt other equipment; and they direct the flow of cooling air through the chassis. Do not operate the system unless all cards, faceplates, front covers, and rear covers are in place. Statement 1029


Installing the Switching Module


Warning

Hazardous voltage or energy is present on the backplane when the system is operating. Use caution when servicing. Statement 1034



Warning

Invisible laser radiation may be emitted from disconnected fibers or connectors. Do not stare into beams or view directly with optical instruments. Statement 1051



Caution

To prevent electrostatic discharge (ESD) damage, handle modules by the carrier edges only.


Procedure


Step 1

Take the necessary precautions to prevent ESD damage. Wear a grounded ESD wrist strap while handling the modules, and keep them in ESD-protective bags when they are not installed in a chassis.

Step 2

Choose a slot for the module.

Verify that you have enough clearance for any interface equipment that you are connecting directly to the switching module ports.

Step 3

Loosen the captive installation screws that secure the existing module or the blank module filler plate in the slot you want to use.

Step 4

Remove the existing module and immediately place it on an antistatic mat or in an antistatic bag. If you are removing a blank module filler plate, set the blank module filler plate aside for future use.

Step 5

Remove the new module from its packaging being careful to handle the module using only the module’s metal tray or the front panel. Do not touch the printed circuit board or the connector pins.

Step 6

Pivot the two module ejector levers out away from the module faceplate.

Step 7

Position the module in front of the chassis slot and align the edges of the printed circuit board with the slot guides on the sides of the switch chassis.

Step 8

Carefully slide the module into the slot until the notches on both ejector levers engage the chassis sides (the ejector levers start to pivot in towards the faceplate).

-

-

Tip 

The guide pin on the top, right-hand corner of a switching module is designed to slide into compatible slots only. So the guide pin on a switching module will not slide in all the way if you insert it into a supervisor module slot.

Step 9

Using your thumb and forefinger of each hand, simultaneously pivot in both ejector levers, to fully seat the module in the backplane connector.

1

Ejector levers that must be pivoted in

2

Captive installation screws that must be tightened

Caution 

Always use the ejector levers when installing or removing modules. A module that is only partially seated in the backplane causes the system to halt or subsequently crash. Further, an improperly seated module may also prevent the system from booting properly.

Note 

If you perform a hot swap, the console displays the message Module <n> has been inserted .. This message also appears if you are connected to the switch through a Telnet session.

Step 10

Use a screwdriver to tighten the captive installation screw on each end of the module faceplate.

Step 11

Install any necessary transceivers in the module ports.

Installation instructions along with safety warnings for the various types of transceivers can be found at the following URL: https://www.cisco.com/en/US/products/hw/modules/ps5455/prod_installation_guides_list.html

Step 12

Attach any necessary network interface cables or other devices to the interface ports.

Step 13

Check the status of the module as follows:

  1. Ensure that the STATUS LED is green (module operational).

  2. When the switch is online, enter the show module command. Verify that the system acknowledges the new module and that the module status is good.

Step 14

If the module is not operational, try reseating it in the slot. If the module is still not operational, contact your customer representative.


What to do next

To ensure the proper air flow and to maintain EMI protection, make sure that there is a blank module filler plate (C9400-S-BLANK) installed in any unused chassis slot. If a chassis slots are left open, air circulation is disrupted and the fans may not be able to adequately cool the other modules in the chassis.
