sfb slot slot-number tag tag-number

(MX10004 and MX10008 routers) Upgrade the SF2 and SFB2 switch fabric firmware. slot-number can be 0 to 5. For tag tag-number option, specify the tag number that indicates you want to update the FPGA. To find out what number you should use for the tag option, issue the show system firmware command. For example, on the MX10004 router, the show system firmware command shows the tag numbers in the third column as follows:

After you upgrade the firmware on the SFB, you must take the SFB offline by using the request chassis sfb slot slot-number offline command. Once the SFB is offline, bring the SFB back online and make the new firmware take effect by using the request chassis sfb slot slot-number online-reload command.
