Chassis Number Ranges
The chassis number specifies the chassis within a system.
Table 1: Chassis Numbers
Note: The chassis number for passive equipment is conceptual. Passive equipment does not reside in a chassis.
Main (or hub) chassis
This document distinguishes between a chassis
number and a chassis identifier. The chassis identifier is a self-contained
addressable entity whereas the chassis number is not. The chassis
number is part of the chassis identifier. For example,
chassis:1 is a chassis identifier with a chassis number
There is no chassis identifier called
chassis:0. When you add a passive module, you do not
specify a chassis identifier. However, you do specify a chassis
number when you refer to passive equipment. For example,
md:0/3 is a valid passive equipment identifier.
