Is the 7206VXR hot swappable?

Hi,

I want to install a new card (NM-1T3/E3) in the 7206VXR. Is the 7206VXR hot swappable?

Thanks

SAM

Hi Sam

AFAIK Cisco 7206VXR supports OIR and we have done with lots of online insertion of PA cards onto it..

But still would suggest to take precautionary measures (like ESD etc.,)to avoid any damage to the card or to the slot..

Hi,

The NM-1T3/E3 doesn't fit in the 7206. You need PA- series cards for 7200 routers.

Hope this helps, please rate post if it does!

Hi Sam,

Good day! Yes, NM (network modules) are not for the Cisco 7200 series routers. These routers uses PA (Port Adapters). Look for a T3/E3 equivalent. And yes, the Cisco 7206 router supports OIR (Online Insertion and Removal) as long as there is enough bandwidth points. But, one experience that we had was on the bootstrap software where the PA was not detected. What we did was upgrade the bootstrap version. This is I guess for old routers but since the 7206VXR is quite new (well, depending on your NPE) this should not be a problem.

Check this links for additional informations:

Remember, always so activities during a maintenance window.

Hi Albert,

Thanks for pointing out the NM. Yes, I want to install PA-2T3 card into 7200VXR. Can you explain what do you mean by enough bandwidth points? What is the correct bootstrap version to support this module?

Regards,

SAM

Hi Sam,

Please check the link I posted earlier about bandwidth points. As far as the boot software is concern, what is your NPE version. A newer NPE version should be enough to support this module. What we experienced was a couple of years ago so this should no longer be an issue.

Regards,

Albert
