Preparing for an Upgrade
Note
Cisco IOS Release 12.2 changed the behavior of the ROM monitor (ROMmon) during the bootup
sequence. See Chapter 10, “Boot Changes in Cisco IOS Release 12.2” for more information.
Upgrading to the NPE-G1 or NPE-G2 is a different procedure than previous processor upgrades because
of the following considerations:
•
The NPE-G1 and NPE-G2 contain an I/O controller, which includes the bootflash and NVRAM
memory. After you install the NPE-G1 or NPE-G2 in a chassis, you can no longer access the
bootflash and NVRAM on the I/O controller. You therefore must make the existing Cisco IOS
software image and configuration files available to the NPE-G1 or NPE-G2, either by putting these
files on a CompactFlash Disk or on a TFTP server.
•
The NPE-G1 and NPE-G2 include three Gigabit Ethernet interfaces. If you want to use these
interfaces to replace the Ethernet or Fast Ethernet interfaces on the existing I/O controller, you will
have to configure the new interfaces before they can be used to access the network. If you are also
removing the existing I/O controller, you will need to remove the configuration for its Ethernet or
Fast Ethernet interfaces.
Note
•
Note
The NPE-G2 provides a Fast Ethernet Management port, as well as three RJ-45 Gigabit
Ethernet ports.
The NPE-G1and NPE-G2 use Type 1 CompactFlash Disk memory instead of the Type 2 Flash Disk
memory used in existing I/O controllers. You must transfer any information currently saved on Flash
Disks to CompactFlash Disks so that it can be used after the upgrade to the NPE-G1 or NPE-G2.
If you are upgrading to an NPE-G2 from an NPE-G1, you do not need to do the following procedure.
To ensure a smooth upgrade, do the following procedure only if you are upgrading to an NPE-G1 or
NPE-G2 from an NPE-400 or earlier processing engine.

Chapter 7
NPE-G1 and NPE-G2 Installation and Configuration Information
Preparing for an Upgrade
Before you install an NPE-G1 or NPE-G2 in an existing router and remove the existing processor and
I/O controller, do the following:
Step 1
Copy the configuration file from the existing router to a TFTP server, Flash Disk, or PC Card. See the
“Copying the Configuration File” section on page 7-4 for details.
Step 2
Modify the configuration file to accommodate the new Gigabit Ethernet interfaces on the NPE-G1 or
NPE-G2. If you are also planning to remove the I/O controller, also remove the configuration lines for
the Ethernet or Fast Ethernet interfaces on the I/O controller. See the “Configuring the Native Gigabit
Ethernet Interfaces” section on page 7-54 for guidelines.
Step 3
Copy the modified configuration file to a CompactFlash Disk that can be used on the NPE-G1 or
NPE-G2. If you are not planning on removing the existing I/O controller, you can do this by copying the
configuration to a Flash Disk, as described in Step 1, before you install the NPE-G1 or NPE-G2. Then
you can keep the Flash Disk in the I/O controller and copy it to a CompactFlash Disk in the NPE-G1 or
NPE-G2 after you have finished installing the NPE-G1 or NPE-G2.
If you are planning on removing the existing I/O controller, you can copy the configuration file to a
CompactFlash Disk in the following ways:
•
Copy the configuration file to a TFTP server and then copy it to a CompactFlash Disk on an existing
NPE-G1 or NPE-G2.
•
Copy the configuration file to a Type 2 Flash Disk using the existing I/O controller, as described in
Step 2 of the “Copying the Configuration File to a Flash Disk or PC Card” section on page 7-4. Then
use a multi-function reader that accommodates both Type 1 CompactFlash Disk and Type 2 Flash
Disk memory cards to transfer the configuration file to the CompactFlash Disk.
•
Use a Type 1-to-Type 2 adapter to convert the CompactFlash Disk to the Flash Disk form factor.
Then insert the CompactFlash Disk and adapter into the existing I/O controller and copy the
configuration file to it, as described in Step 1.
Note
Step 4
The CompactFlash Disk must be formatted before you can write any files to it. The
CompactFlash Disk shipped with the NPE-G1 or NPE-G2 is already formatted, but a spare
CompactFlash Disk must be formatted using the format command. Do not format the
CompactFlash Disk in a PC or other workstation because the router cannot use Flash Disks that
are formatted by other computers. After the CompactFlash Disk is properly formatted, however,
you can write to it using any PC or workstation that recognizes Type 2 CompactFlash Disk
memory.
(Optional) Copy the proper Cisco IOS software image (see Table 8-4 on page 8-4) to the CompactFlash
Disk, using the same technique you used to copy the configuration file in Step 3. You do not need to
perform this step if you plan to boot the router from a TFTP server, but you must add the proper boot
configuration command to the configuration file when you modify it in Step 2.

NPE-G1 and NPE-G2 Installation and Configuration Information
Copying the Configuration File
Copying the Configuration File
Caution
Before powering down the router to install the NPE-G1 or NPE-G2, you must save the current
configuration to a Flash Disk, PC Card, Trivial File Transfer Protocol (TFTP) file server, or PC before
you install the NPE-G1 or NPE-G2, or the configuration will be lost and you will have to manually
re-enter your configuration.
Cisco IOS looks to the NPE-G1 or NPE-G2 NVRAM for the startup running configuration, because the
NPE-G1 or NPE-G2, by default, stores the running configuration, whether or not an I/O controller is
installed with the NPE-G1 or NPE-G2.
The following sections provide instructions for copying the file to a Flash Disk, PC Card, or TFTP server,
and for copying it manually using a terminal program on a PC:
•
Copying the Configuration File to a Flash Disk or PC Card, page 7-4
•
Copying the Configuration File to a TFTP Server, page 7-5
•
Copying the Configuration File Using a PC, page 7-7
Copying the Configuration File to a Flash Disk or PC Card
Use the following instructions for copying the router configuration file to a Flash Disk or PC Card.
Caution
If the NPE-G1 or NPE-G2 will be installed in a router with either a C7200-I/O-GE/E or
C7200-I/O-2FE/E I/O controller, copy your running configuration to a Flash Disk, not a PC Card. PC
Cards are not supported on these I/O controllers when an NPE-G1 or NPE-G2 is present. If you copy the
running configuration to a PC Card with these I/O controllers present, you will not be able to retrieve
the running configuration after the NPE-G1 or NPE-G2 is installed.
Step 1
Insert the Flash Disk or PC Card into I/O controller PC Card slot 0. If slot 0 is full, use slot 1. If you
need to format the Flash Disk, go to Step 2. If the Flash Disk is already formatted, go to Step 3.
Step 2
Use the format disk0: command to format a Flash Disk in slot 0. Use the format disk1: command to
format a Flash Disk in slot 1. If you are using a PC card, use slot0 or slot1 as part of the command.
System# format disk0:
Format operation may take a while. Contineu: [confirm]
Format operation will destroy all data in ‘disk0:’. Continue? [confirm]

Step 3
Make sure you are at the privileged level of the EXEC command interpreter (check the system prompt
for a pound sign [#]). If the system prompt does not have a pound sign (#), enter enable, and then your
password.
Step 4
Enter the show running-config command to display the router’s running configuration. Ensure that the
configuration information is complete and correct. If it is not, use the configure command to add or
modify the existing configuration. Then enter the copy running-config command. If you have a Flash
Disk 0 or 1, use disk0 or disk1 as part of the command. If you are using a PC Card, use slot0 or slot1
as part of the command.
Step 5
To copy the running configuration file to the Flash Disk or PC Card, enter the copy running-config
disk0: filename or copy running-config slot0: filename command:
System# copy running-config disk0: filename
You have finished copying the running configuration file to the Flash Disk or PC Card.
Go to the “Removing the Network Processing Engine” section on page 7-7 for instructions on removing
the current network processing engine or network services engine and replacing it with the NPE-G1 or
NPE-G2.
Copying the Configuration File to a TFTP Server
Before copying the router configuration file to a TFTP file server, check the following items:
•
A console terminal is connected to the console port on the I/O controller or a Telnet session is
established to the router.
•
The router is connected to a network supporting a file server (remote host).
•
The remote host supports the TFTP application.
•
You have the name or address of the remote host.
Complete the following steps to copy the router’s configuration file to a remote host:
Step 1
Make sure you are at the privileged level of the EXEC command interpreter (check the system prompt
for a pound sign [#]). If the system prompt does not have a pound sign (#), enter enable, and then your
password.
Step 2
Use the ping command to check the connection between the router and the remote host.
Step 3
Enter the show running-config command to display the router’s running configuration. Ensure that the
configuration information is complete and correct. If it is not, use the configure command to add or
modify the existing configuration. Then enter the copy running-config startup-config command to
save the retrieved configuration in NVRAM. NVRAM uses lithium batteries to maintain its contents
when disconnected from power.
Note
Step 4
Refer to the appropriate software documentation listed in the “Related Documentation” section
on page iii for descriptions of the configuration options available for the system and individual
interfaces, and for specific configuration instructions.
Enter the copy startup-config tftp command. The EXEC command interpreter prompts you for the
name or IP address of the remote host that is to receive the configuration file. (The prompt might
include the name or address of a default file server.)

NPE-G1 and NPE-G2 Installation and Configuration Information
Copying the Configuration File
Router# copy startup-config tftp
Remote host []?
Step 5
Enter the name or IP address of the remote host. In the following example, the name of the remote host
is servername:
Router# copy startup-config tftp
Remote host []? servername
Translating "servername"...domain server (10.1.1.1) [OK]
Step 6
The EXEC command interpreter prompts you for the name of the file that will contain the configuration.
By default, the system appends -confg to the router’s name to create the new filename. Press Return to
accept the default filename, or enter a different name for the file before pressing Return. In the following
example, the default is accepted:
Name of configuration file to write [Router-confg]?
Write file Router-confg on host 10.1.1.1? [confirm]
Writing Router-confg.....
Step 7
Before the router executes the copy process, it displays the instructions you entered for confirmation. If
the instructions are not correct, enter n (no), and then Return to stop the process. To accept the
instructions, press Return, or y and then press Return; the system begins the copy process. In the
following example, the default is accepted:
Write file Router-confg on host 10.1.1.1? [confirm]
Writing Router-confg: !!!! [ok]
While the router copies the configuration to the remote host, it displays a series of exclamation points
(! ! !) or periods (. . .). The !!!! and [ok] indicate that the operation is successful. A display of . . . [timed
out] or [failed] indicates a failure, which would probably be because of a network fault or the lack of a
writable, readable file on the remote file server.
Step 8
Check the result of the copy process.
•
If the display indicates that the process was successful (with the series of exclamation points [! ! !]
and [ok]), the copy process is complete. The configuration file is safely stored in the temporary file
on the remote file server.
•
If the display indicates that the process failed (with the series of periods [. . .] as shown in the
following example), your configuration was not saved:
Writing Router-confg .....
Step 9
If your configuration was not saved, repeat the preceding steps, or select a different remote file server
and repeat the preceding steps. If you are unable to copy the configuration to a remote host
successfully, contact your network administrator or see the “Obtaining Technical Assistance” section
on page vii for instructions on contacting technical assistance.
This completes the procedure for copying the configuration file to a TFTP server. Proceed to the section,
“Removing the Network Processing Engine” section on page 7-7.

Copying the Configuration File Using a PC
Complete the following steps to copy the router’s configuration file to text file on a PC connected to the
router’s console port.
Step 1
Connect a serial port on the PC to the router’s console port. Start a terminal program on the PC and
configure it for the same baud rate, parity, and stop-bits that the console port is using.
Step 2
Turn on the terminal program’s capture buffer so that it will save all output to a text file.
Step 3
Enter the show startup-config command in privileged EXEC mode to display the router’s startup
configuration.
Note
Refer to the appropriate software documentation listed in the “Related Documentation” section
on page iii for descriptions of the configuration options available for the system and individual
interfaces, and for specific configuration instructions.
Step 4
When the router has completed displaying the configuration, turn off the terminal program’s capture
buffer and save the configuration file to the disk on the PC.
Step 5
(Optional) Use a text editor on the PC to modify the configuration, as needed.
This completes the procedure for copying the configuration file to a PC. Proceed to the section,
“Removing the Network Processing Engine” section on page 7-7.
Removing the Network Processing Engine
Before you begin any removal or installation procedure, read Chapter 8, “Preparation for Installation.”
To install the NPE-G1 or NPE-G2, follow the instructions in this chapter for removal of an existing
network processing engine or network services engine and installation of the NPE-G1 or NPE-G2.
Note
If you are removing the I/O controller, and do not plan to replace it, you must install an I/O controller
blank panel, (Cisco Product Number IO-CONTROLR-BLANK=) in the I/O controller slot. See the
Input/Output Controller Replacement Instructions for information on removing an I/O controller and
installing an I/O controller blank panel.

Ensuring Easy Access to the Router
If your Cisco 7200 VXR or Cisco uBR7246VXR router is installed in a standard 19-inch, 4-post or
telco-type rack, cables from other equipment in the rack might obstruct access to the rear of the router.
Also, rack power strips or other permanent fixtures may obstruct access to the router. Review the
following guidelines to ensure easy access to the rear of the router when it is installed in a rack. This is
particularly important because the NPE-G1 and NPE-G2 have interfaces that require cabling on the rear
of the router.
Note
The NPE-G2 is not supported on the Cisco uBR7246VXR router.
If the router is not installed in a rack, or if you already have clear access to the rear of the router, proceed
to the “Powering Down the Router and Disconnecting Input Power” section on page 7-8.
Use the following guidelines to ensure easy access to the rear of the router when it is installed in a rack:
Caution
•
Ensure that you have at least 3 to 4 feet (0.91 to 1.22 meters) of working space at the rear of the
router.
•
If cables from other equipment in the rack fall in front of the rear end of the router, carefully gather
the cables (using care not to strain or stress them) and use cable ties to anchor them away from the
rear of the router.
•
If access to the rear of the router is partially blocked by a power strip or some other permanent rack
fixture, detach the router from the rack and carefully slide it forward until there is enough clearance
to remove the power supply, the network processing engine, and the subchassis from the router.
Make sure that at least one other person is available to support the front of the router as you slide it out
from the rack and, if necessary, to continue to support it while you remove and insert the power supply,
network processing engine, or subchassis.
Powering Down the Router and Disconnecting Input Power
Complete the steps in the following sections to power down the router and disconnect input power.
Caution
This unit might have more than one power cord. To reduce the risk of electric shock, disconnect the two
power cords before servicing. Statement 83
Powering Down the Router
To power down a Cisco 7200 VXR or Cisco uBR7246VXR router, complete the following steps:
Note
Before powering down the router, use the copy running-config startup-config command to save the
router’s running configuration to a Flash Disk, PC Card, or TFTP server. If you do not, you will have to
manually reenter the configuration after you install the NPE-G1 or NPE-G2 and power on the router. See
the “Copying the Configuration File” section on page 7-4.

Step 1
Facing the rear of the router, place the power switch on the power supply in the off (O) position. Repeat
this action if a second power supply is installed in the router.
Note
Step 2
Caution
When powering off the router, wait a minimum of 30 seconds before powering it on again.
Observe the following items:
•
The green OK LED on the power supply turns off.
•
The fans stop operating.
•
The LEDs on the I/O controller turn off.
•
The LEDs on the port adapters turn off.
When the power switch on a Cisco uBR7200 series power supply is turned to the off (O) position, the
power supply enters a reset cycle for 90 seconds. Wait at least 90 seconds before turning the power
switch back to the on (|) position. If you do not wait the full 90 seconds, the power supply does not
restart.
This completes the procedure for powering down the router. The following sections provide instructions

Removing the NPE or NSE-1
To remove the NPE or NSE-1 from a Cisco 7200 VXR or Cisco uBR7246VXR router complete the
following steps.
Note
The weight of installed power supplies in your Cisco 7200 VXR or Cisco uBR7246VXR router might
make it difficult to remove the network processing engine. If you have difficulty, first remove the power
supplies from the chassis, and then remove the network processing engine. See the “Removing and
Replacing an AC-Input or DC-Input Power Supply” section on page 10-14 for information on removing
and replacing an installed power supply.
Note
If you have difficulty installing a processing engine or I/O controller in the lowest slot of a Cisco 7200
VXR router that is rack-mounted, remove the port adapters, processing engine and I/O controller from
the chassis and reinstall them. Install the processing engine and I/O controller in the lowest slots first,
then populate the slots above them, in a bottom-to-top order.
Step 1
Power down the router and disconnect the input power cable. (See the “Powering Down the Router and
Disconnecting Input Power” section on page 7-8.)
Step 2
Attach an ESD-preventive wrist strap between you and an unfinished chassis surface.
Step 3
Using a number 2 Phillips or a 3/16-inch flat-blade screwdriver, loosen the two captive installation
screws on the faceplate of the network processing engine. (See Figure 7-6.)
If the router is not installed in a standard 19-inch, 4-post or telco-type rack, skip to Step 7. If the router
is installed in a rack, determine if any permanent rack fixtures, such as a power strip, are obstructing
access to the rear of the router. If a rack fixture is obstructing access to the router, proceed with Step 4.

Reconnecting DC-Input Power to the Cisco 7200 VXR Router
To reconnect DC-input power to a Cisco 7200 VXR router, complete the following steps.
Note
The color coding of the DC-input power supply leads depends on the color coding of the DC power
source at your site. Typically, green or green and yellow are used for ground. Make certain that the lead
color coding you choose for the DC-input power supply matches the lead color coding used at the DC
power source.
Warning
Before completing any of the following steps, and to prevent short-circuit or shock hazards, ensure
that power is removed from the DC circuit. To ensure that all power is OFF, locate the circuit breaker
on the panel board that services the DC circuit, switch the circuit breaker to the OFF position, and
tape the switch handle of the circuit breaker in the OFF position. Statement 322
Warning
When installing the unit, the ground connection must always be made first and disconnected last.
Statement 42
Step 1
At the rear of the router, check that the power switch on the power supply is in the off (O) position.
Step 2
Ensure that no current is running through the –V and +V leads. To ensure that all power is off, locate the
circuit breaker on the panel board that services the DC circuit, switch the circuit breaker to the off
position, and tape the switch handle of the circuit breaker in the Off position.

For the Cisco 7200 VXR routers, insert the stripped end of the ground lead all the way into the ground
lead receptacle on the DC-input power supply and tighten the receptacle screw using a 3/16-inch
flat-blade screwdriver.
Step 5
Insert the stripped end of the +V lead all the way into the +V lead receptacle and tighten the receptacle
screw using the same 3/16-inch flat-blade screwdriver. Repeat this step for the –V lead.
Note
Make sure that the entire stripped end of each lead is inserted all the way into its receptacle. If any
exposed wire at the stripped end of a lead is visible after inserting the lead into its receptacle, remove
the lead from the receptacle, use the wire stripper to cut the stripped end of the lead, and repeat through
Step 5.
Step 6
After tightening the receptacle screws for the ground, +V, and –V DC-input leads, secure the leads to the
power supply faceplate.
Use the cable tie you saved earlier in this procedure to secure the three leads.
Note
Step 7
When securing the ground, +V, and –V DC-input leads to the power supply faceplate, leave a
small service loop in the ground lead to ensure that it is the last lead to disconnect from the power
supply if a great deal of strain is placed on all three leads. (See Figure 7-26.)
Restore current to the –V and +V leads.
Note
For the Cisco 7200 VXR routers:
– Each DC-input power supply operating at 24 VDC requires a minimum of 19A service.
– Each DC-input power supply operating at 48 VDC requires a minimum of 13A service.
– Each DC-input power supply operating at 60 VDC requires a minimum of 8A service.
This product relies on the building’s installation for short-circuit (overcurrent) protection.
Ensure that a listed and certified fuse or circuit breaker, 35A minimum 60 VDC, is used on all
current-carrying conductors. Site wiring and circuit breakers need to be sized to accommodate
the maximum values for safety reasons.

– Each AC-input power cable is connected and secured with the cable-retention clip (AC-input
power supplies only).
– For a Cisco 7200 VXR router, each DC lead is connected and secured to the power supply
faceplate with a cable tie.
– For a Cisco uBR7246VXR router, each DC lead is connected with M4 nuts for the grounding
receptacle and the strain-relief cover over the +V and –V leads (DC-input power supplies only).
– Each DC lead is connected and secured to the power source (DC-input power supplies only).
– Ensure that the tape (that you applied earlier) is removed from the circuit breaker switch handle,
and power is restored by moving the circuit breaker handle to the on (|) position (DC-input
power supplies only).
– The console terminal is turned on.
Caution
Step 2
Note
When the power switch on a Cisco uBR7200 series power supply is turned to the off (O) position, the
power supply enters a reset cycle for 90 seconds. Wait at least 90 seconds before turning the power
switch back to the on (|) position. If you do not wait the full 90 seconds, the power supply does not
restart.
At the rear of the router, place the power switch on the power supply in the on (|) position. Repeat this
step if a second power supply is installed in the router. The green OK LED on the power supply turns on.
When powering on the router, wait a minimum of 30 seconds before powering it off again.
Step 3
Listen for the fans; you should immediately hear them operating.
Step 4
During the boot process, observe the system LEDs. The LEDs on most of the port adapters go on and
off in an irregular sequence. Some may go on, go off, and go on again for a short time. On the NPE-G1
or NPE-G2 and the I/O controller, the POWER OK LED goes on immediately.
Step 5
Observe the initialization process. When the system boot is complete (a few seconds), the NPE-G1 or
NPE-G2 begins to initialize the port adapters and the I/O controller. During this initialization, the LEDs
on each port adapter behave differently (most flash on and off). The enabled LED on each port adapter
and Cisco uBR7200 series cable interface line card goes on when initialization is completed, and the
console screen displays a script and system banner similar to the following:

Copying the Saved Configuration to NVRAM
After installing and cabling the NPE-G1 or NPE-G2 and powering on the router, copy the configuration
file to the NVRAM on the NPE-G1 or NPE-G2, using one of the following procedures:
•
If you have kept the previous I/O controller installed in the router, use the procedure given in the
“Copying the Saved Configuration File from a Flash Disk or PC Card” section on page 7-51 to copy
the saved configuration to the NVRAM on the NPE-G1 or NPE-G2.
•
If you have removed the previously installed I/O controller from the router, and you were able to
copy the file to a CompactFlash Disk, use the procedure given in the “Copying the Saved
Configuration File from the CompactFlash Disk” section on page 7-52 to copy the saved
configuration file to the NVRAM on the NPE-G1 or NPE-G2.
•
If you have removed the previously installed I/O controller from the router, and you have not been
able to copy the file to a CompactFlash Disk, use the procedure given in the “Downloading the Saved
Configuration from the TFTP Server” section on page 7-52 to copy the saved configuration file to
the NVRAM on the NPE-G1 or NPE-G2.
Copying the Saved Configuration File from a Flash Disk or PC Card
To copy the saved configuration file from the Flash Disk or PC Card, follow these steps:
Step 1
Make sure you are at the privileged level of the EXEC command interpreter (check the system prompt
for a pound sign [#]). If the system prompt does not have a pound sign (#), enter enable, and then your
password.
Step 2
Insert the Flash Disk or PC Card containing the saved configuration file into the first PC Card slot in the
I/O controller.
Step 3
Enter the copy disk0: filename running or copy slot0: filename running command.

Router#: write
You have finished copying and writing the saved configuration file to NVRAM.
Downloading the Saved Configuration from the TFTP Server
After you install the NPE-G1 or NPE-G2 in the router and verify a successful router boot, you must
retrieve the router configuration from the TFTP server and copy it to NVRAM. Use the copy tftp
running-config command to copy the saved configuration from the TFTP file server. The system
prompts you for a host name and address, the name of the configuration file stored on the host, and
confirmation to reboot using the remote file.
After the NPE-G1 or NPE-G2 is installed, save the router configuration file to NVRAM (the default is
the NPE-G1 or NPE-G2 NVRAM) using the copy system:running-config nvram:startup-config
command as follows:
Router# copy system:running-config nvram:startup-config
You will want to configure the NPE-G1or NPE-G2 interfaces after retrieving the router configuration
and copying it to NVRAM.
Before retrieving the router configuration file from the TFTP server, check the following:
•
A console terminal is connected to the console port on the NPE-G1 or NPE-G2, or a Telnet session
is established to the router.
•
The router is connected to a network supporting a file server (remote host).
•
The remote host supports the TFTP application.
•
You have the name or address of the remote host.

NPE-G1 and NPE-G2 Installation and Configuration Information
Copying the Saved Configuration to NVRAM
Before configuring the new interfaces on the NPE-G1 or NPE-G2, be prepared with the following
information:
•
Protocols and encapsulations you plan to use on the new interface
•
Protocol-specific information, such as IP addresses if you will configure the interface for IP routing
For complete descriptions of interface commands and the configuration options available for Cisco 7200
VXR-related interfaces, refer to the documentation resources listed in the “Related Documentation”
section on page iii.
To retrieve the saved router configuration from the remote host, complete the following steps:
Step 1
Make sure you are at the privileged level of the EXEC command interpreter (check the system prompt
for a pound sign [#]). If the system prompt does not have a pound sign (#), enter enable, and then your
password.
Note
Until you retrieve the saved configuration, the router runs from the default configuration in
NVRAM. Therefore, any passwords that were previously configured on the system are not valid
until you retrieve the configuration.
Step 2
Use the ping command to check the connection between the router and the remote host (the remote file
server to which you copied the configuration file).
Step 3
At the system prompt, enter the copy tftp running-config command and press Return to enter
configuration mode. Specify that you will configure the system from a network device (instead of from
the console terminal, which is the default).
Router# copy tftp running-config
Step 4
The system prompts you to select a host or network configuration file. The default is host; press Return
to accept the default.
Host or network configuration file [host]?
Step 5
The system prompts you for the IP address of the host. Enter the IP address or name of the remote host.
IP address of remote host [255.255.255.255]? 10.1.1.1
Step 6
The system prompts you for the name of the configuration file. When the system copies the file to the
server, the default is to use the name of the router with the suffix -confg (router-confg in the following
example). If you specified a different filename when you copied the configuration, enter that filename;
otherwise, press Return to accept the default.
Name of configuration file [router-confg]?
Step 7
Before the system reboots with the new configuration, it displays the instructions you entered for
confirmation. If the instructions are not correct, enter n (no), and then press Return to cancel the
process. To accept the instructions, press Return, or y and then Return.
Configure using router-confg from 10.1.1.1? [confirm]
Booting router-confg from 10.1.1.1: ! ! [OK - 874/16000 bytes]
While the router retrieves and boots from the configuration on the remote host, the console display
indicates whether or not the operation was successful. A series of exclamation points (!!!!) and [OK] (as
shown in the preceding example) indicates that the operation was successful. A series of periods ( . . .)
and [timed out] or [failed] indicates a failure (which would probably be due to a network fault or an
incorrect server name, address, or filename). The following is an example of a failed attempt to boot from
a remote server:

•
If the display indicates that the process was successful, proceed to the next step.
•
If the display indicates that the process failed, verify the name or address of the remote server and
the filename, and repeat the preceding steps. If you are unable to retrieve the configuration, contact
your network administrator or see the “Obtaining Technical Assistance” section on page vii for
instructions on contacting Cisco technical assistance.
Step 8
Enter the show running-config command to display the currently running configuration on the
terminal. Review the display and ensure that the configuration information is complete and correct. If it
is not, verify the filename and repeat the preceding steps to retrieve the correct file, or use the configure
command to add or modify the existing configuration. (Refer to the appropriate software
documentation for descriptions of the configuration options available for the system and individual
interfaces and specific configuration instructions.)
Step 9
When you have verified that the currently running configuration is correct, enter the
copy running-config startup-config command to save the retrieved configuration in NVRAM.
Otherwise, the new configuration will be lost when you restart the system.
This completes the procedure for downloading the saved router configuration from the remote host.
Proceed to the “Configuring the Native Gigabit Ethernet Interfaces” section on page 7-54.
Auxiliary and Console Port Information
If the NPE-G1 or NPE-G2 and an I/O controller are both installed in the same system, the console and
auxiliary ports on the I/O controller are used and the console and auxiliary ports on the NPE-G1 or
NPE-G2 are disabled by Cisco IOS.
Both the NPE-G1 or NPE-G2 and the I/O controller console ports are available from the ROM monitor
(ROMmon); however, once the system has completed loading the Cisco IOS image, the console port on
the NPE-G1 or NPE-G2 is disabled if an I/O controller is also installed in the router.
If the NPE-G1 or NPE-G2 is used without an I/O controller, the console and auxiliary ports on the
NPE-G1 or NPE-G2 are available both during and after loading the Cisco IOS image.
Configuring an Auxiliary Port to Receive Console Port Messages
If you choose to have console port messages routed to the auxiliary port, use the Cisco IOS command
terminal monitor on the auxiliary port on which you desire to receive console messages.

Configuring the Native Gigabit Ethernet Interfaces
The NPE-G1 and NPE-G2 reports both the RJ-45 and GBIC or SFP GE interface ports as
GigabitEthernet 0/1, GigabitEthernet 0/2, and GigabitEthernet 0/3. Each interface has two ports with
two different media types, GBIC or SFP, or RJ-45 (default). You can use only one port for each interface,
and before configuring either port type, you must first use the media-type interface command to select
the media type, GBIC (gbic) for NPE-G1 or SFP (sfp) for NPE-G2, or RJ-45 (rj45) port.
Network Processing Engine and Network Services Engine Installation and Configuration
7-54
OL-4448-08
Chapter 7
NPE-G1 and NPE-G2 Installation and Configuration Information
Configuring the Native Gigabit Ethernet Interfaces
Note
The Gigabit Ethernet interfaces on the NPE-G1 and NPE-G2 do not support the Inter-Switch Link (ISL)
VLAN encapsulation protocol. We recommends that customers use the IEEE 802.1Q VLAN
encapsulation protocol as an alternative. Where an application requires the use of ISL, this can be
provided by the Fast Ethernet or Gigabit Ethernet port adapters or I/O controllers.
Note
The RJ-45 port is the default media.
Changing the Media Type of the Native Gigabit Ethernet GBIC, SFP,
or RJ-45 Ports
To be able to use a particular media port, use Cisco IOS to select the media type. This is done by using
the media-type interface command:
media-type { gbic | sfp | rj45 }
Example:
interface GigabitEthernet 0/1
media-type rj45
end
Configuring the Interface Transmission and Speed Modes
Step 1
After changing the media type, configure the speed and transmission modes to appropriately match the
new interface characteristics. Changing the speed and duplex of an NPE-G1 or NPE-G2 Gigabit Ethernet
interface is done using the speed and duplex interface commands.
Note
These commands are only applicable when using the RJ-45 media.
speed { 10 | 100 | 1000 | auto }
duplex { full | half | auto }
Network Processing Engine and Network Services Engine Installation and Configuration
OL-4448-08

Chapter 7
NPE-G1 and NPE-G2 Installation and Configuration Information
Configuring the Native Gigabit Ethernet Interfaces
The following speed/duplex settings are supported:
Media Type
Speed
Duplex
------------------------------------------------------RJ45
10, 100, 1000, auto
full, half, auto
GBIC(1)
1000, auto(2)
full, half, auto
-------------------------------------------------------
a.
If you are using the no negotiation auto command, the speed and duplex should be set to a value
other than auto for correct operation.
b.
The only available speed in the no autonegotiation mode is 1000 Mbps; there is no difference
whether 1000 or auto is selected.
When using the GBIC media, there is also the additional negotiation auto command that is used to
enable the IEEE 802.1z Gigabit Ethernet (1000 Mbps) autonegotiation protocol.
Step 2
Note
To turn the autonegotiation feature off (it is on by default), issue the interface command no negotiation
auto. This is useful for connecting to other Gigabit Ethernet equipment that does not support 802.1z auto
negotiation.
The autonegotiation feature is not supported when using the rj-45 media type and will be ignored if
implementation is attempted.
If you change from the GBIC or SFP to the rj-45 media type, you must set speed and duplex after you
have executed the media-type command to ensure the interface will operate in the correct mode.
The media-type GBIC or media-type SFP mode will always default to 1000 Mbps. Both full-duplex
and half-duplex operation are supported in this mode.
Sample Configuration for the Gigabit Ethernet Interfaces
The following shows a typical configuration for the three Gigabit Ethernet interfaces on the NPE-G1.
The same configuration would be typical for the NPE-G2 also, although the second interface would be
configured for the SFP media type. In this example, the first interface is configured for the GBIC media
type, the second interface is configured for the RJ-45 media type, and the third interface is not used.

Note
At the very minimum, an interface must be configured with the ip address, media-type, and speed
commands before it can be enabled using the no shutdown command. Other interface commands might
be needed, depending on the nature of the connected network.
Debugging
Cisco IOS provides two commands to provide information on your interfaces: show interface
GigabitEthernet 0/X (where X is 1, 2, or 3) and show controllers GigabitEthernet 0/0.
The output of the show interface command is useful for determining the current operating mode of the
interface (speed/duplex/media-type) and the current interface statistics.
The output of the show controllers command displays more information specific to the I/O controller
interface. For example, it shows the detected link status, speed, and duplex, and also determines the
current status of autonegotiation and the link partners’ abilities (if it is an auto negotiation-capable
interface).
The show controllers command also displays the current operating state of the driver and the Ethernet
controller hardware. The show controllers command is a very powerful debugging aid, especially for
Cisco engineers should you need help in debugging a problem. If you have any problems with your
Gigabit Ethernet interfaces, you will need to provide the show controllers command output to Cisco for
analysis.
Resetting the Interface
Should you have a problem with your interface and wish to try and reset it, use the command:
clear interface GigabitEthernet 0/X (where X is 1, 2, or 3)
Clearing Counters
Interface counters may be cleared (reset) by using the command:
clear counters GigabitEthernet 0/X (where X is 1, 2, or 3)
This will not reset the interface.
Using show Commands to Check the Installation
Use show commands to identify the hardware installed in your router, to verify the operation status, to
view interface configuration settings, and to troubleshoot your router configuration. The interfaces on
the NPE-G1 and NPE-G2 are identified by their chassis slot number and interface port number
(slot/port). The interfaces on your I/O controller are also identified by chassis slot number and interface

GBIC port 0/2. You can use only one port per interface, depending on the port selected using the media-type command.
2. The Product Number C7200-I/O-FE does not specify MII because both an MII and an RJ-45 receptacle are included.
3. The I/O controller with the Product Number C7200-I/O-FE-MII has a single MII Fast Ethernet receptacle only. Although still supported by
Cisco Systems, this I/O controller with a single MII receptacle is no longer an orderable product as of May 1998.
The remainder of this section provides examples of show commands that pertain to the NPE-G1 and
NPE-G2. The output from the show commands is from the NPE-G1 or the NPE-G2.
To determine the hardware configuration of your NPE-G1 or NPE-G2, use the show version command.

Upgrading the Cisco IOS Image and the Boot Helper (Boot
Loader) Image
Should you ever upgrade the Cisco IOS image on your Cisco 7200 VXR router with an NPE-G1 or
NPE-G2, you need to ensure that you also upgrade your boot helper (boot loader) image.
The boot helper (boot loader) image resides in Flash memory on the NPE-G1 and NPE-G2 and contains
a subset of the Cisco IOS software. This image is used to boot your router from the network or to load
Cisco IOS images onto the router. This image is also used if the system cannot find a valid system image.
Your boot helper (boot loader) image should correspond to the Cisco IOS release that is running on your
router.
•
The NPE-G1 requires the c7200-kboot boot helper image.
•
The NPE-G2 requires the c7200p-kboot-mz helper image.
•
The Cisco uBR7200-NPE-G1 requires the ubr7200-kboot boot helper image.
To upgrade your boot helper (boot loader) image, obtain the most current boot helper image through
Cisco.com and copy the new boot helper image to Flash memory on your router. For information on how
to access Cisco.com, see the “Cisco.com” section on page v. Follow the Software Center link under
Service and Support. You need to get a login code from a Cisco representative to retrieve files from the
Software Center.
To obtain a boot helper (boot loader) image from Cisco.com and upgrade your boot flash memory, do
the following:
Step 1
Download the boot helper (boot loader) image from Cisco.com to a Trivial File Transfer Protocol
(TFTP) server.
Step 2
Reformat the Flash memory on your router as follows:
router# format bootflash:
Format operation may take a while. Continue? [confirm]
Format operation will destroy all data in "bootflash:".
Formatting sector ...
Format of bootflash:complete
Note
Continue? [confirm]
Reformatting Flash memory erases the current Flash memory contents.

This completes the procedure for upgrading your boot helper (boot loader) image. For more detailed
instructions on loading and maintaining system images and microcode, including boot helper images,
refer to the Configuration Fundamentals Configuration Guide, which is available on Cisco.com.
Upgrading ROMmon on the NPE-G1 or NPE-G2
Upgrading the rewriteable ROM monitor (ROMmon) allows you to download a new ROMmon image
instead of having to replace hardware (NPE-G1 or NPE-G2) to get a new image.
Note
ROMmon can be upgraded on the NPE-G1 or NPE-G2, but cannot be upgraded on any other network
processor engine for the Cisco 7200 series routers.
There are two ROMmon images: one ReadOnly image (the original image that shipped with your
system) that is always available if you have the following:
•
NPE-G1 hardware EPROM version 4.0 with NPE-G1 ROMmon version 12.3(4r)T1 or later.
•
NPE-G2 hardware
You can choose to configure the system to point to the second ROMmon image, the upgradeable
ROMmon image. At bootup, the system starts with the ReadOnly image and then, if configured, jumps
to the upgradeable image. If the upgradeable ROMmon image fails to boot, the router will mark this
ROMmon image as invalid and revert to the ReadOnly image.
The first time a new ROMmon image is executed, you must allow the system to boot ROMmon before
doing any additional resets or power cycling. If the ROMmon-executing process is interrupted, the stem
interprets this as a bootup failure of the new ROMmon image. The router reverts to the ReadOnly image.
Note
The ROMmon upgrade image is marked as invalid if it fails to boot. Do not reset the router when it is
doing an initial bootup.

Changing Preferences to Choose the Other ROMmon Image
To use the other ROMmon image, use one of the following commands to make the change depending on
whether you are in Cisco IOS or in ROMmon:
•
In Cisco IOS, use the upgrade rom-monitor preference command to change to the other ROMmon
image:
upgrade rom-monitor preference [readonly | upgrade]
Example:
Router: upgrade rom-monitor preference readonly
You are about to mark ReadOnly region of ROMMON for the highest boot preference.
Proceed? [confirm]
Done! Router must be reloaded for this to take effect.
•
In ROMmon, use the ROMmon CLI rommon-pref command to change to the other ROMmon
image:
rommon-pref [readonly | upgrade]
Example:
rommon 2 > rommon-pref readonly

Upgrading FPGA on the NPE-G2
A field-programmable gate array (FPGA) device exists on the NPE-G2. FPGA devices do not exist on
other Cisco 7200 series routers network processing engines. FPGA devices are a type of
field-programmable devices (FPD) that support separate software upgrades. Whenever a Cisco image is
released that support the FPD feature, a companion FPD image package is also released for that
Cisco IOS software release. The FPD image package is available from Cisco.com and is accessible from
the Cisco Software Center page where you go to download your Cisco IOS software image.
Note
For the Cisco IOS 12.4(4)XD release, only a manual FPD upgrade of the NPE-G2 is supported.
For FPGA upgrade information and procedures, see the Field-Programmable Device Upgrades
