How to Instal the Cisco Modules

How to Instal the Cisco Modules: To install modules in a Catalyst 4500 series switch, follow these steps

 
PRLog - Feb. 19, 2014 - To install modules in a Catalyst 4500 series switch, follow these steps:

Step 1 Take the necessary precautions to prevent ESD damage. Wear a grounded ESD wrist strap while handling the modules, and keep them in ESD-protective bags when they are not installed in a chassis.

Step 2 Choose a slot for the new module.

Verify that you have enough clearance for any interface equipment that you are connecting directly to the switching module ports.

Step 3 Loosen the captive installation screws that secure the existing module or the blank module filler plate in the slot you want to use.

Step 4 Remove the existing module and immediately place it on an antistatic mat or in an antistatic bag. If you are removing a blank module filler plate, set the blank module filler plate aside for future use.

Note To ensure the proper air flow and to maintain EMI protection, make sure that there is a blank module filler plate (C4K-SLOT-CVR-E) installed in any unused chassis slot. If a chassis slot are left open, air circulation is disrupted and the fans may not be able to adequately cool the other modules in the chassis.

Step 5 Remove the new module from its packaging being careful to handle the module using only the module’s metal tray or the front panel. Do not touch the printed circuit board or the connector pins.

Step 6 Position the module in front of the chassis slot and align the edges of the module carrier with the slot guides on the sides of the switch chassis.

Step 7 Pivot the two module ejector levers out away from the module faceplate.

Step 8 Carefully slide the module into the slot until the notches on both ejector levers engage the chassis sides (the ejector levers start to pivot in towards the faceplate).

Step 9 Using your thumb and forefinger of each hand, simultaneously pivot in both ejector levers, as shown in Figure 2, to fully seat the module in the backplane connector.

Caution: Always use the ejector levers when installing or removing modules. A module that is only partially seated in the backplane causes the system to halt and subsequently crash.

Note: If you perform a hot swap, the console displays the message “Module n has been inserted.” This message also appears if you are connected to the Catalyst 4500 series switch through a Telnet session.

Step 10 Use a screwdriver to tighten the captive installation screw on each end of the module faceplate (see Figure 2).

Step 11 Install any necessary transceivers in the module ports. Installation instructions along with safety warnings for the various types of transceivers can be found at the following URL:

Step 12 Attach any necessary network interface cables or other devices to the interface ports.

Step 13 Check the status of the module as follows:

a. Ensure that the LED labeled STATUS is green (module operational).

b. When the switch is on line, enter the show module command. Verify that the system acknowledges the new module and that the module status is good.

Step 14 If the module is not operational, try reseating it in the slot. If the module is still not operational, contact your customer representative.
