Troubleshooting the MX960 MICs



Description: The MICs are not functioning normally.


  • Check the status of each port on a MIC by looking at the LED located on the MIC faceplate. For information about the meaning of LED states on different MICs, see the MX Series Ethernet Services Routers Line Card Guide.

  • Check the status of a MIC by issuing the show chassis fpc pic-status CLI command. The MIC slots in the MPC are labeled PIC 0/1 and PIC 2/3, top to bottom:

    user@host> show chassis fpc pic-status

    For further description of the output from the command, see the CLI Explorer.
