ASR9K Powerglide LC not supported on eXR 6.4.1?

James Jun

Beginner

Hello,

According to XR 6.4.1 Release Notes, the dual mode 24x10G/1GE  and 48x10G/1GE line cards (Powerglide) are now supported on 64-bit eXR with first support occurring on 6.3.2.

 

However, upon upgrading ASR 9906 from cXR 6.3.1 to 64-bit eXR 6.4.1, Powerglide LC remains in SW_INACTIVE and will not power on.

 

I have a TAC case open, however while I'm waiting on their response... are Powerglide LCs not supported on 64-bit XR 6.4.1?

TAC found the root cause/fix:  the FPD for Powerglide line cards needs to be at minimum version supplied by cXR 6.3.2 or newer, *before* migrating to eXR.

This also affects eXR 6.3.2.

 

It looks like Powerglide line cards in 64-bit IOS XR are only supported on the original ASR 9010/9006/9912/9922 chassis.  Powerglide is not supported on Torchwood (9906) chassis for 64-bit still, despite the Release Notes.

 

Downgrading back to 32-bit cXR on 6.3.2 instantly brings the line card back up to IOXR RUN state.

I can confirm powerglide cards (A9K-24X10GE-1G-SE) works on 6.3.2 64-bit and 6.3.3 64-bit. In the ASR9906 Chassis.
