Installing the Routing Engine in an M7i Router

To install the Routing Engine (see Figure 9):

  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. Make sure the router is attached to a proper earth ground.
  2. Place one hand under the Routing Engine to support it and grasp the handle on the faceplate with the other hand.
  3. Align the rear of the Routing Engine with the guide rails inside the chassis and slide it in completely.

    Caution: Be careful to align the Routing Engine correctly with the guide rails and push it in evenly. Damage can result if the Routing Engine gets lodged in the rails because of uneven movement.

  4. Tighten the thumbscrews at each end of the Routing Engine.

    The Routing Engine might require several minutes to boot.

  5. After the Routing Engine boots, issue the show chassis routing-engine command to verify correct Routing Engine functioning.
