Replacing a TXP-F2S-3D SIB

 

Removing a TXP-F2S-3D SIB

The TXP-F2S-3D SIBs are located in the front of the chassis in slots 0/0 through 4/6. Each TXP-F2S-3D SIB weighs approximately 3.63 lb (1.65 kg).

TXP-F2S-3D SIBs are hot-insertable and hot-removable. When you remove a TXP-F2S-3D SIB, traffic forwarding continues without any degradation as long as four TXP-F2S-3D SIBs remain in the chassis.

To remove a TXP-F2S-3D SIB (see Figure 1):

  1. Have ready an antistatic mat for the TXP-F2S-3D SIB.
  2. Attach an electrostatic discharge (ESD) grounding strap to your bare wrist, and connect the strap to one of the ESD points on the chassis.
  3. Use one of the following methods to take the TXP-F2S-3D SIB offline:
    • Issue the following CLI command:

      user@host> request chassis sib f2 slot slot-number offline

      For more information, see request chassis sib.

    • Press and hold the ONLINE/OFFLINE button on the TXP-F2S-3D SIB faceplate. Hold the button down until all of the LEDs are not lit.

  4. Loosen the captive screw next to the latch on the ejector handle.
  5. Release the latch on the ejector handle of the TXP-F2S-3D SIB faceplate.
  6. Flip the ejector handle outward to unseat the TXP-F2S-3D SIB.
  7. Grasp the ejector handle, pull firmly, and slide the TXP-F2S-3D SIB about halfway out of the chassis.
  8. Place one hand underneath the TXP-F2S-3D SIB to support it and slide it completely out of the chassis. Place it on the antistatic mat.Caution

    Do not stack hardware components on one another after you remove them. Place each component on an antistatic mat resting on a stable, flat surface.

Installing a TXP-F2S-3D SIB

To install a TXP-F2S-3D SIB into the front of the chassis (see Figure 2):

Caution

Be prepared to support the weight of the TXP-F2S-3D SIB (approximately 3.63 lb [1.65 kg]) before you lift it.

  1. Have ready a replacement TXP-F2S-3D SIB or TXP-F2S-3D SIB blank panel.
  2. Attach an electrostatic discharge (ESD) grounding strap to your bare wrist, and connect the strap to one of the ESD points on the chassis.
  3. Lift the TXP-F2S-3D SIB into place and carefully align first the bottom, then the top of the TXP-F2S-3D SIB with the guides inside the card cage.
  4. Carefully slide the TXP-F2S-3D SIB all the way into the card cage until you feel resistance.
  5. Grasp the ejector handle and rotate inward TXP-to seat the TXP-F2S-3D SIB until the ejectors latch into the faceplate.
  6. Tighten the captive screw next to the ejector handle.
  7. Use one of the following methods to bring the TXP-F2S-3D SIB online:
    • Press and hold the ONLINE/OFFLINE button on the TXP-F2S-3D SIB faceplate until the green OK LED is lit. The green OK LED should light steadily a few minutes after the TXP-F2-3D is installed.

    • Issue the following CLI command:

      user@host> request chassis sib f2 slot slot-number online
  8. Verify that the TXP-F2S-3D SIB is online and functioning normally:

    • Verify that the TXP-F2S-3D SIB is online by issuing the show chassis sibs command.

    • Verify that the green OK LED is lit steadily.
