Removing a TXP-F2S SIB

The TXP-F2S SIBs are located in the front of the chassis in slots 0/0 through 4/6. Each TXP-F2S SIB weighs approximately 3.4 lb (1.5 kg).

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

To remove a TXP-F2S 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. Use one of the following methods to take the TXP-F2S 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 SIB faceplate. Hold the button down until all of the LEDs are not lit.

  3. Release the latch on the ejector handle of the TXP-F2S SIB faceplate.
  4. Flip the ejector handle outward to unseat the TXP-F2S SIB.
  5. Grasp the ejector handle, pull firmly, and slide the TXP-F2S SIB about halfway out of the chassis.
  6. Place one hand underneath the TXP-F2S 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 SIB

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

Caution

Be prepared to support the weight of the TXP-F2S SIB (approximately 35 lb [15.9 kg]) before you lift it.

  1. Have ready a replacement TXP-F2S SIB or TXP-F2S 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 SIB into place and carefully align first the bottom, then the top of the TXP-F2S SIB with the guides inside the card cage.
  4. Carefully slide the TXP-F2S 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 SIB until the ejectors latch into the faceplate.
  6. Use one of the following methods to bring the TXP-F2S SIB online:
    • Press and hold the ONLINE/OFFLINE button on the TXP-F2S SIB faceplate until the green OK LED is lit. The green OK LED should light steadily a few minutes after the TXP-F2S is installed.

    • Issue the following CLI command:

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

    • Verify that the TXP-F2SIB is online by issuing the show chassis sibs command.

    • Verify that the green OK LED is lit steadily.
