IOS XR requires PRP2 or better it cannot be installed on PRP1.
To be noted PRP3 just released will support only IOS XR.
Migration from IOS to IOS XR is not fast and easy, so if the system is not in production already you might consider if it has PRP2 to migrate it before putting it in the network.
A very important point to be able to perform migration is to configure an ip address on one management LAN on the PRP(s), because migration requires to put the device in Rommon and then to perform FTP transfers.
Also memory chips of linecards may need to be upgraded and also the firmware.
The firmware follows the IOS image so an upgrade to one of the last IOS images may be needed just to be able to upgrade the various firmware.
it is new installation but the customer does not have trained staff on XR, my question is it realy needed to migrate router will function just for interner gateway (just BGP peers with international internet service provider, and ospf with internal network) to XR IOS.?
what i heared that there are many issue with the XR and still not fully tested,also the router to boot need long time not like the standard IOS.?
What is the advantage in such case (internet peering) from deplying XR IOS over standard IOS?.
is the 4 byte AS number supported now in the XR IOS or not? , because this feature is very important now for BGP internet peering.
