24i whose serial number ends with the letter N or higher. If maximum DS3 performance is not
required, the AT-AR048 can be installed in any Rapier 24i whose serial number ends in J, K, L, or M.
The serial number can be found on the underside of the switch (see Figure 1 on pa ge-4).

Installing a Network Service Module
There are two methods for installing and removing NSMs, the Standard
Installation Method and the Hot Swap Installation Method. The software
release running on your switch or router determines which of these two
methods should be used.
If your switch or router is running Software Release 2.2.3 or earlier, follow the
standard method. If your switch or router is running Software Release 2.3.1 or
later, you can use the hot swap method.
To find out which software release your switch or router is running, use the
command:
SHOW RELEASE
Standard Installation Method (for Software Release 2.2.3 or earlier):
Follow these steps to install or remove an NSM if the software release does not
support hot swapping.
1.
Read the safety information
See the Safety and Statutory Information booklet for your switch or router.
A copy of this booklet can be found on the CD-ROM that came with your
switch or router, or at www.alliedtelesyn.co.nz/support/support.html.
2.
If connected, disconnect the switch or router from its redundant power supply
3.
Disconnect the switch or router from the mains power supply
If using the Standard Installation Method, be sure to disconnect the main
power supply and the redundant power supply before installing an NSM.
Installing an NSM with this method when the switch or router is powered ON
can damage the NSM.

4.
Remove the switch or router NSM-bay face-plate or existing NSM
If the switch or router does not have an NSM installed, remove the blank
NSM-bay face-plate by loosening the two M4 Phillips screws. See Figure 3
on page -5.
If an NSM is already installed, disconnect its network cables and TNV lines
before removing it from the switch or router.
Remove the NSM by unscrewing both thumbscrews at the same time. As
the thumbscrews are turned they will push the NSM out of the bay.
If the NSM has extractor levers, moving them to the open position will
assist the removal process (Figure 2 on page -5).
Figure 2: NSM extractor levers.
Close
Open
When removing an NSM, take care to turn each thumbscrew by an equal
amount to ensure that the NSM does not become misaligned. Forcing a jammed
thumbscrew may damage the NSM.
If a thumbscrew becomes tight, it must not be forced. Instead, screw it in or
out slightly to loosen it and then try again, taking care to unscrew both
thumbscrews at the same rate.
Keep the face-plate for future use. If you remove an NSM, replace the face-plate to
prevent dust and debris from entering the switch or router and to maintain proper
airflow.

Prepare the NSM
In an antistatic environment, remove the NSM from its packing material.
Be sure to observe ESD precautions.
Do not attempt to install an NSM without observing correct antistatic
procedures. Failure to do so may damage the switch, router, or NSM. If you are
unsure what the correct procedures are, contact your authorised Allied Telesyn
distributor or reseller.

6.
Slide the NSM into place
Slide the NSM into the NSM bay, making sure that the ends of the
thumbscrews are aligned with the screw holes on the switch or router.
If the NSM has extractor levers, they should be in the closed position
(Figure 2 on page -5).
7.
Secure the NSM
When the NSM has been firmly pushed into place, turn the NSM’s two
thumbscrews to engage their threads. Tighten both thumbscrews at the
same rate to pull the NSM into position.
The screws will tighten when the NSM panel is in its installed position. The
thumbscrews should be firm, but not over-tight.
If one thumbscrew becomes tight before the other, loosen it slightly before
proceeding.
8.
Installing PICs in the AT-AR040 NSM
If you have PICs to install, install them now by following the Port Interface
Card Quick Install Guide. If there are more PIC bays than PICs, use the bays
on the switch or router base unit first, then fill the NSM PIC bays, starting
with bay 0.
9.
Apply power to the switch or router by re-attaching the power cord
Check that the switch or router power LED lights green.
10. If you disconnected a redundant power supply, reconnect it
11. Verify the installation
Check the In Use LED. The In Use LED (on the switch or router rear panel)
lights to indicate that the NSM is installed, is receiving power, and is
operational.
Use the SHOW SYSTEM command to verify that the switch or router has
recognised the NSM. If there is no NSM entry in the output, recognition
has failed.
If the In Use LED fails to light or recognition fails, repeat the installation
process, paying particular attention to steps 6 and 7.
If the reinstallation fails, see the Network Service Module Hardware Reference,
which has further troubleshooting information.
Hot Swap Installation Method (for Software Release 2.3.1 or later):
WARNING: Failure to follow this procedure when hot swapping an NSM will
cause the switch or router to crash, and may damage the switch or router and
files stored in Flash.
The AT-AR040 NSM can be hot swapped with PICs installed in its PIC bays. There is
no need to remove the PICs before hot swapping. See the NSM Hardware Reference for
information on the operational characteristics of hot swapped interfaces.
C613-04019-01 REV F
Quick Install Guide

Follow these steps to hot swap an NSM.
1.
Prepare the NSM bay for hot swap
If the In Use LED (next to the NSM bay) is lit, use a pencil tip or similar
object to press the recessed Hot Swap button. The In Use LED should go
out and the Swap LED should light.
If the In Use LED remains lit, or if neither the In Use or Swap LED are lit,
the software release does not support hot swapping, and the Standard
Installation Method must be used.
Do not attempt to hot swap while the contents of Flash are being modified; for
instance, during Flash compaction or when files are being loaded onto the
switch or router. If the switch or router crashes while Flash is being modified,
configuration files, software release files, feature licences and other files may be
damaged.
2.
Prepare the NSM
In an antistatic environment, remove the NSM from its packing material.
Be sure to observe ESD precautions.
Do not attempt to install an NSM without observing correct antistatic
procedures. Failure to do so may damage the switch, router, or NSM. If you are
unsure what the correct procedures are, contact your authorised Allied Telesyn
distributor or reseller.
3.

on the switch or router base unit first, then fill the NSM PIC bays, starting
with bay 0.
7.
Return the NSM bay to use
Press the recessed Hot Swap button. The Swap LED will go out and the
In Use LED will light.
If the In Use LED lights only briefly and the Swap LED then lights
continuously, the NSM is of a type that the software release does not
support.
8.
Verify the installation
Use the SHOW SYSTEM command to verify that the switch or router has
recognised the NSM. If there is no NSM entry in the output, recognition
has failed.
If the In Use LED fails to light or recognition fails, repeat the installation
process, paying particular attention to steps 4 and 5.
If the reinstallation fails, use the Standard Installation Method or see the
Network Service Module Hardware Reference, which has further
troubleshooting information.
