    Functional Description • System image—This software image is the main Cisco IOS software image with full multiprotocol routing support. For information on how the RSFC uses these software images at startup, see the “RSFC Boot Note Process” section on page 5.
  • Page 5: Rsfc Boot Process

    RSFC Boot Process RSFC Boot Process When you boot a Catalyst 5000 series switch with an RSFC installed, the following process occurs on the RSFC: The ROM monitor image loads and checks the value of the configuration register boot field.
  • Page 6: Hardware And Software Requirements

    Hardware and Software Requirements RSFC Redundancy Up to two Catalyst 5000 series supervisor engines with RSFCs can be installed in the Catalyst 5505, 5509, and 5500 chassis. Redundant RSFCs do not exchange configuration or system image information. Configuration changes on one RSFC do not affect the configuration of the second RSFC.
  • Page 7 If you plan to return the module to the factory, immediately place it in a static-shielding bag. Periodically check the resistance value of the antistatic strap. The measurement should be Caution between 1 and 10 megohms (Mohms). Catalyst 5000 Series Route Switch Feature Card Installation and Configuration Note...

  • Page 11: Installing The Rsfc

    Keeping one hand under the carrier to guide the supervisor engine, carefully slide it into the slot on the Catalyst 5000 series switch until the ejector levers click into place on the chassis. Be sure to keep the module horizontal to the backplane and avoid touching any of the components on the module.
