'ello everyone.

Our Phone system here at the railroad (Partner ACS REV 6) suffered a "power event" and one of the ports in the middle of one of the remaining original 206 cards died. (RIP)

I have a 306 card on the shelf ready to go.

Does anyone have a SOP for how the ports rearrange when a 206 is replaced with a 308?

Will all the extensions stay the same, and now the "extra" port be at the end?

We have a Partner ACS rev 6, 308 processor card, and then have 4 206's hung off of it. The third 206 is the one that had the port get whacked.

My question is: Can I just replace the 206 with the 308 and have the processor keep the programming with the extensions, even though now two ports are shuffled off of the 4th card?

Hope this makes some sense.

Hows everybody doing?

It will if you put the 308 at the "end". What is the module arrangement now? Just one 206 and nothing else?

label all line and extension cables on 3rd and 4th 206 cards,turn off power,unplug labeled cables,remove 3rd 206 card and replace with 4th 206 card ,then install 308card last postion and plug all labeled cables back in,power up and test.All settings and extensions should remain same.Do you have backup and restore card on system?If not when was last time batteries were replaced on ACS?I should have mentioned backup and batteries before saying power down system.

Oops, didn't see where you gave the configuration. I agree with jacktel, pull the bad 206, move the remaining over and put the new 308 in the last slot.

Hi Hal, Howya been?

I haven't looked at the backup batteries lately, to be honest. It does have a backup card installed and configured to auto backup.

The rearranging thing is what I needed to know.

I'll let you know how it works out.

My latest project.

The problem with that locomotive is that it would roll the rails over in the first corner it came to!

They are really cool though.

Thank you, things are back up and running normally, or as normally as things get around here anyway.
