    Verify CIP Failure

    To verify CIP failure:

    1. Check the CIP Connection
    2. Check the Ethernet Port Functionality
    3. Perform a CIP Swap Test

    Check the CIP Connection

    Purpose

    If the CIP is not seated properly, it will not function.

    Action

    To check the CIP connection, check the screws on the top and bottom of the CIP faceplate and make sure that the CIP is properly seated in the slot.

    Check the Ethernet Port Functionality

    Purpose

    To verify if the CIP is installed correctly by checking the Ethernet port functionality.

    Action

    To check the Ethernet port, plug an Ethernet cable into the Ethernet port on the CIP.

    If the host module is operational, the LINK LED (either the yellow 10-Mbps LED or the green 100-Mbps LED) will flash to register Ethernet activity. If you can run the CLI, the CIP is installed correctly.

    Perform a CIP Swap Test

    Purpose

    To verify CIP failure by performing a CIP swap test.

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

    Action

    To perform a swap test on a CIP:

    1. Place an electrostatic bag or antistatic mat on a flat, stable surface to receive the CIP.
    2. Attach an electrostatic discharge (ESD) strap to your bare wrist, and connect the strap to one of the ESD points on the chassis.
    3. On the console or other management device connected to each Routing Engine, enter CLI operational mode and issue the following command to shut down the router software. For more information, see the Junos OS System Basics Configuration Guide.
      user@host> request system halt

      Do not continue until all software processes have shut down.

    4. Flip both circuit breaker switches on the circuit breaker box to the OFF (O) position.
    5. Disconnect any external devices connected to the CIP.
    6. Loosen the screws on the top and bottom of the CIP faceplate.
    7. Grasp the CIP and slide it out of the chassis.
    8. Check the CIP connector to the router chassis midplane. Look for bent pins.
    9. Place the CIP in the electrostatic bag or on the antistatic mat prepared in Step 1. 

      Caution: Be sure to slide the CIP straight out of the slot to avoid damaging the connecting pins on the front of the midplane.

    10. Carefully insert the CIP into the left side of the FPC card cage, following the guides on the top and bottom of the card cage.

      Note: The components on the CIP are on the left side of the board, unlike the components of an FPC, which are on the right side. Verify that the components are on the left before inserting the CIP.

    11. Slide the CIP into the chassis until it contacts the midplane.  

      Caution: Be sure to slide the CIP straight into the slot to avoid damaging the connecting pins on the front of the midplane.

    12. Tighten the screws on the top and bottom of the CIP faceplate.
    13. Reattach any external devices connected to the CIP.
    14. Power on the router. See the instructions in the M40e or M160 router hardware guide.
    15. To verify that the CIP is installed correctly, plug an Ethernet cable into the CIP port labeled ETHERNET for the appropriate host module.

      When the host module is operational, one of the activity indicator LEDs on the Ethernet port (either the amber 10-Mbps LED or the green 100-Mbps LED) will flash to indicate activity. If you can issue commands over the connection, the CIP is installed correctly.
