Charles - As Sudhir explained

Charles - As Sudhir explained, we cannot simply remove the disk from a running RP. However, with disk mirroring, we can prepare a backup disk that may be used to boot up a new system with the required base image.

For more information on disk mirroring, please refer to the following link.

http://www.cisco.com/c/en/us/td/docs/routers/crs/software/crs_r4-2/system_management/configuration/guide/b_sysman_cg42crs/b_sysman_cg42crs_chapter_011.html

The following document explains the concept of a graceful disk upgrade procedure. Although this document is for the XR12k platform, the same concept applies to the CRS RP that uses a flash disk.

Very Likely, however, you may

Very Likely, however, you may like to reseat in a different slot if you have an available empty in order to rule out any issue with the slot.

Also, visual inspection for any damage in the connectors and bent pins is recommended

Hi All

Hi All

Sorry for the late reply

Cisco TAC Engineer diagnosed faulty PLIM, now we're waiting for replacement by RMA.

I'll keep you up to date.

Hello Antonello,

Hello Antonello,

Glad to know your issue has been resolved. Feel free to ask more questions if you have.

Hello Antonello,

Hello Antonello,

There could be multiple reasons for card not to boot or stuck in MBI state, first step is to move the card on known working slot to see if the problem follows.

If you see the issue is not with the card may be you can copy paste specific logs from router syslog for further investigation?

Thanks

Hi Antonello,

Hi Antonello,

Adding to Raj's point. Please find some card states description, which would help you understand the card state during troubleshooting.

Card States:

NOT-PRESENT
The node is not present in the system, waiting for OIRd. Indicates that the card is not properly seated, not getting powered, or another low-level issue.

PRESENT
Upon a node being powered-on and Shelf Manager detecting the presence of a card using the OIRd register we changes states from: NOT_PRESENT –> PRESENT
Shelf Manager is pending the receipt of a boot request.

ROMMON
Shelf Manager receives a boot request and the card type is known, change states: (PRESENT –> ROMMON)

MBI-BOOT
Shelf Manager validates the boot request and sends a boot reply. In order to validate the boot image Shelf Manager will call the mbimgr API.
If the node’s bootflash does not have the boot image the image will be downloaded via the Control Ethernet TFTP server. state changed: (ROMMON –> MBI-BOOTING)

MBI-RUNNING
The mbi-hello process is initialized during MBI Band by the init process and starts sending MBI-HELLO messages to shelf manager. Upon reception of the first MBI-HELLO message (MBI-HELLO HB) shelf manager will transition the node state from MBI-BOOT to MBI-RUN. When Shelf manager receives the first MBI-HELLO, the node state changes to RUNNING_MBI.


XR-RUN
The hbagent process is initalized by sysmgr process and starts the hand-off operation with mbi-hello process. After the hand-off is completed the mbi-hello process will exit and hbagent process will start sending XR-HELLO messages to shelf manager. Upon reception of the first XR-HELLO message shelfmgr will transition the node state from MBI-RUNNING to XR-RUN.Now, the node begins sending heart beat messages every second to keep it in RUNNING_ENA (IOS-XR RUN)


XR_MBI_FAIL_GRACEFUL
The node is about to be reset or powered down due to admin config commands, alarms, other internal requests etc. while it was in XR_RUNNING or MBI_RUNING state. The FSM parks a node in this state for 5 seconds so that applications get a chance to learn about impending failure and do the required cleanup, if any, on their side. The difference between this and the 

BRINGDOWN
Once a node reaches this state, it would be reset (power down followed by power up).

IN_RESET
If a node keeps hitting BRINGDOWN state without being able to transition to XR_RUNNING state consecutively 5 times, then the node is deemed a failure and power would be cut off for that node. This state is referred to as IN_RESET. After this the node will no longer auto-boot.

UNPOWERED
If a node is powered off due to configuration or programmatically, then the node enters UNPOWERED state. (A node can be programmatically powered off when any incompatibilities are found – for example, wrong card in a chassis etc.)

Hello Raj/Sudhir,

Hello Raj/Sudhir,

Thanks for this knowledge sharing event.

I often use to perform upgrade downgrade SMU's in XR ( asr9k, CRS ) nodes with standard set of procedure given to me. Is there any way know if SMU is restart SMU or non-restart SMU ? Any quick way to check ?

Regards,

Hi Jameel,

Hi Jameel,

There are several ways you can fetch this information. Normally this information is available in readme file for the tar. Also, you can use few commands to get SMU restart details.

If you are NOT done with install add step then you can use "admin show install pie-info <> detail" and look for restart information.

If you are done with install add then run "admin show install package <> detail.

Example:

disk0:asr9k-doc-px-4.3.1
asr9k-doc-px V4.3.1[Default] Asr9k DOC Composite
[composite package]
[root package, grouped contents]
Vendor : Cisco Systems
Desc : Asr9k DOC Composite
Build : Built on Sat May 11 21:56:02 UTC 2013
Source : By iox-bld2 in /auto/srcarchive7/production/4.3.1/all/workspace for pie
Card(s): RP, CRS-RP-X86, CRS8-RP-x86, CRS16-RP-x86, ASR9001-RP
Restart information:<<<<<<<<<<
Default:
parallel impacted processes restart

Components in package disk0:asr9k-doc-px-4.3.1, package asr9k-doc-px:

asr9K-doc-supp V4.3.1[Default] asr9k doc package

Restart information:
Default:

Thanks Cisco Team!

Thanks Cisco Team!

Could you please help me understand that why do we need restart SMU ? Cant we just install and run the package?

Regards,

Jameel

Hi Jameel,


Hi Jameel,

I understand your question is why do we need restart SMU ?

Execution of new binary is needed to take effect without any disruption to the system, Restart should be completed in sub seconds as opposed to reload which takes more time.

You can also refer to below links for more SMU details.

Jameel,

Jameel,

On top of what Sudhir has provided, the easiest and quickest way to know the SMU impact is through CSM, you have the option of SMU client, which does SMU management and SMU server which does SMU management and also automation of installing and upgrading software(including SMUs). Please take a look at CSM Server or client here.

CSM server: (LINUX)

CSM Client: (windows based)
