    OBSOLETE Installing a TXP-3D-LCC SIB

    Each TXP-3D-LCC SIB weighs approximately 9.4 lb (4.2 kg). The TXP-3D-LCC SIBs are connected to the TX Matrix Plus router with TXP-F13-3D SIBs. To install a TXP-3D-LCC SIB (see Figure 1):

    1. Attach an electrostatic discharge (ESD) grounding strap to your bare wrist, and connect the strap to one of the ESD points on the chassis.
    2. Place one hand underneath the SIB to support it. With the other hand, hold one of the ejector handles on the T4000 faceplate.
    3. Carefully align the sides of the SIB with the guides inside the chassis.
    4. Slide the SIB into the chassis, carefully ensuring that it is correctly aligned.
    5. Grasp both ejector handles, and press them inward to seat the SIB. Ensure that the ejector handle tabs are properly mated inside their corresponding chassis slots. You might have to close and open the handles a few times before the tabs catch the slots.
    6. Tighten the captive screws on the ejector handles.
    7. Remove the dust covers from the transceivers. Store the dust covers in a dust-free resealable plastic bag.
    8. Clean the fiber-optic array ports and cables.

      Caution: When you replace a cable, small deposits of oil, dust, and debris can enter the SIB ports and cables. We recommend that you clean the optics in these components, as well as the dust covers, immediately before connecting them.

    9. Connect the cables to the ports (labeled 0 through 7). The TXP-3D-LCC SIBs are connected to the TXP-F13-3D SIBs on the TX Matrix Plus router.
    10. Bring the TXP-3D-LCC SIB online using one of the following methods:

      • Press and hold the ONLINE/OFFLINE button on the TXP-3D-LCC SIB faceplate. The green OK LED on the faceplate begins to blink. Hold the button down until the LED blinks.
      • Issue the following CLI command on the router:
        user@host> request chassis sib online slot 0
    11. Check the LEDs on the TXP-3D-LCC SIB faceplate.
      • The green OK LED should light steadily a few minutes after the SIB is installed.
      • If the FAIL LED is lit steadily, remove and install the TXP-3D-LCC SIB again. Make sure that the SIB is seated properly. If the FAIL LED still lights steadily, the SIB is not functioning properly. Contact your customer support representative.
    12. Verify that four SIBs are in the Online state and one SIB is in the Spare state. Display the status of the SIB by issuing the show chassis sibs command:
      user@host> show chassis sibs
      Slot  State                            Uptime
       0    Spare
       1    Online                           1 day, 13 hours, 16 minutes, 49 seconds
       2    Online                           1 day, 13 hours, 16 minutes, 33 seconds
       3    Online                           1 day, 13 hours, 16 minutes, 16 seconds
       4    Online                           1 day, 13 hours, 16 minutes

      If a SIB is not online, issue the request chassis sib online operational mode command.
