Installing an MX960 AS MSC


To install an AS MSC (see Figure 1):

  1. Wrap and fasten one end of the ESD grounding strap around your bare wrist, and connect the other end of the strap to an ESD point.
  2. Align the notches in the connector at the rear of the AS MSC with the notches in the AS MSC slot (slot 0—the top slot in the AS MLC ), and then slide the AS MSC in until it lodges firmly in the AS MLC.Caution

    Slide the AS MSC straight into the slot to avoid damaging the components on the bottom of the AS MSC.

  3. Use one of the following methods to bring the AS MSC online:
    • Press the AS MSC offline/online button until the LED light turns green.

    • Issue the following CLI command:

      user@host> request chassis pic fpc-slot fpc-slot pic-slot pic-slot online

      For more information about the command, see the CLI Explorer.

    The normal functioning status LED confirms that the AS MSC is online. You can also verify correct AS MSC functioning by issuing the show chassis fpc pic-status command..
