    Replacing an IOC on VSE1100 and VSE2100 Devices

    VSE1100 and VSE2100 support the following IOCs:

    • 4-port Gigabit IOC (model number UNIV-1GE-4COP)
    • 2-port Gigabit IOC (model number UNIV-10GE-2SFPP)

    To replace an IOC, see the following topics:

    Removing an IOC from VSE1100 and VSE2100

    VSE1100 has a four-port input/output controller (IOC) and VSE2100 has a two-port IOC. When you remove an IOC, the Virtual Services Engine continues to function.

    An IOC installs horizontally in the front of the appliance. The IOCs are hot-insertable and hot-removable.

    To remove an IOC:

    1. Power off the device. See Powering Off Virtual Services Engines for more information.
    2. Attach an electrostatic discharge (ESD) grounding strap to your bare wrist, and connect the strap to an ESD point on the appliance.

      For more information about ESD, see Prevention of Electrostatic Discharge Damage on VSE.

    3. Loosen the captive thumbscrews located at the sides of the IOC panel.
    4. Carefully slide the IOC out of the appliance.
    5. Place the IOC in its antistatic bag, being careful not to touch components, pins, leads or solder connections.
    6. Cover the empty slot with a blank filler panel, and tighten the filler panel's captive thumbscrews.

    Installing an IOC in VSE1100 and VSE2100

    The VSE1100 has four ports of 1–Gigabit Ethernet traffic and VSE2100 has two ports of 10-Gigabit Ethernet traffic from fiber interface media. It is inserted horizontally into the IOC slot of the appliance.

    To install an IOC:

    1. Attach an electrostatic discharge (ESD) grounding strap to your bare wrist, and connect the strap to an ESD point on the appliance.

      For more information about ESD, see Prevention of Electrostatic Discharge Damage on VSE.

    2. Choose the slot where you want to insert the IOC.
    3. Loosen the captive thumbscrews that secure the blank filler panel covering the empty slot, if present, and remove the filler panel.
    4. Remove the IOC from its antistatic bag, being careful not to touch components, pins, leads, or solder connections.
    5. Verify that the ejectors are in the open position (facing outward).
    6. Guide the IOC into the chassis by placing it between the guides of the selected slot and pushing the card until it stops.

      The card stops sliding when the ejectors make contact with the appliance.

      Caution: If you meet strong resistance when attempting to seat the card using the ejectors, remove it from the appliance, and confirm that the slot is designed to hold the component. Also, be sure that you have aligned the left and right edges in the correct matching tracks.

    7. Insert the IOC into the midplane by simultaneously pressing both ejectors inward and exerting forward pressure on the card until the small red release buttons click into place.
    8. Tighten the captive thumbscrews.
