    Replace a Control Board

    The Control Board can fail and not start, or it can cause a connectivity problem between the Routing Engine and the Packet Forwarding Engine components. You can perform a swap test on the Control Board to try to pinpoint the problem.

    To replace a Control Board, see Perform a Control Board Swap Test.

    Caution: Before performing a swap test, always check for bent pins in the midplane and check the Control Board for stuck pins in the connector. Pins stuck in the component connector can damage other good slots during a swap test.
