Removing a Module
To remove a module:
Caution: If you do not use the halt command before removing or powering down an SRP, the system's NVS card may become corrupted.
- Enter the halt command.
See ERX System Basics Configuration Guide, Chapter 5, Managing Line Modules and SRP Modules for information about the halt command.
Caution: When handling modules, use an antistatic wrist strap connected to the ERX system's ESD grounding jack. This action helps to protect the module from damage by electrostatic discharge.
- Connect the antistatic wrist strap to the ESD grounding jack on your ERX system.
- Use a screwdriver to loosen the thumb screws located at the top and bottom of the module panel.
- Raise the ejector handles located at the top and bottom of the module so that they are in position 2, as shown in Figure 3-6.
Caution: Always handle the module by its edges. Do not touch the components, pins, leads, or solder connections.
- Carefully slide the module out of the chassis, as shown in Figure 3-8.
- Place the module in its antistatic bag.
- Cover the empty chassis slot with a blank faceplate. Tighten the faceplate's top and bottom captive screws using a Phillips screwdriver, as shown in Figure 3-9. Turn both screws several times before tightening them completely.
If you remove an I/O module and not the corresponding line module, the line module reboots, and then its status will be "inactive" when you issue a show version command. If you remove a line module and do not delete the corresponding configuration, the status of the line module will be "not present" when you issue a show version command.
