    Checking the FPC Installation

    Purpose

    To verify an FPC failure by checking the FPC installation.

    Action

    To check the FPC installation:

    1. Make sure that the FPC is seated in its slot. Use a screwdriver to check that the screws at the top and bottom of the card carrier are tight.
    2. Try to bring the FPC online. Press the online button on the craft interface or FPM for a few seconds. If the FPC does not come online, it has probably failed.
    3. If the FPC comes online, check the FPC detailed status with the following command:
      user@host> show chassis fpc detail fpc-slot

    For the M40e, M120, M160, M320, T320, T640, and T1600 routers, to bring the FPC online, use the request chassis fpc slot-number online command.

    On a TX Matrix router, if you specify the number of the T640 router (or line-card chassis) by using the lcc number option (the recommended method), replace fpc-slot with a value from 0 through 7. Otherwise, replace fpc-slot with a value from 0 through 31. Likewise, on a TX Matrix Plus router, if you specify the number of the T1600 router (or line-card chassis) by using the lcc number option (the recommended method), replace fpc-slot with a value from 0 through 7. Otherwise, replace fpc-slot with a value from 0 through 31. For example, the following commands have the same result:

    user@host> show chassis fpc detail 1 lcc 1user@host>show chassis fpc detail 9
