    Upgrading with the PP833 Upgrade Kit

    To remove or install the CompactFlash card for the CTP2000 Series with the new PP833 processor:

    1. Power down the system through either the menu or CTPView.
    2. Remove the power cord.
    3. Remove the PP833 PRC card from the chassis and remove the old CompactFlash card from the PRC card. (PP833 has the CompactFlash card slot in the PRC itself.) See Installing or Removing a CTP2000 Series CompactFlash Card.
    4. Install the 4-GB compact flash from the upgrade kit in the PRC card and reinstall the PRC card in the chassis. See Installing or Removing a CTP2000 Series CompactFlash Card.
    5. Attach a terminal server or similar device to the USB console port, COM2, on the RTM. This device will be used to interact with the script that runs when the upgrade CompactFlash card is booted. CTP2008, CTP2024, and CTP2056 devices with the new PP833 processor use a USB connector. The USB port on the device is connected to an RS-232 serial cable using a USB connector. The RS-232 cable is then connected to the console using an RJ-45 connector. CTP2000 series devices with the PP310 and PP332 processors use an RJ-45 connected to the COM2 port. This cable must be connected during the first boot process.
    6. Remove the CPU card from the chassis, and replace the memory module on the CPU card with that from the upgrade kit. Install the memory module shipped with the kit only after you have finished these tasks. Reinstall the CPU module in the chassis when finished. See Installing or Replacing CTP2000 DRAM Memory Modules in the PP310 or PP332 CPU and Upgrading CTP2000 Series Components for Memory Upgrades.
    7. Reconnect all Ethernet cables.
    8. Replace the power cord.
    9. Power on the system and follow the procedure Using the Upgrade CompactFlash Card to respond to the instructions that appear on the serial console.

      Note: The system may go through multiple reboots during this process. The BIOS, FPGAs, and the firmware on the cards may be updated. If the power is removed during these upgrades, the cards may become unusable. Please ensure that the process continues until completion. Failure to do so may render the system unusable.
