    show chassis fpc pic-status
    request chassis pic offline fpc-slot 3 pic-slot 0
    show chassis fpc pic-status
    request chassis pic online fpc-slot 3 pic-slot 0

    Syntax may differ on different platforms but you get the idea.


    Make sure your management connection doesn't use this pic.

    This alarm is generated because I believe you changed the port speed on the port and did not reset the MIC for it to take effect. Something like this:


    fpc 3 {
    pic 0 {
    port 0 {
    speed 100g;   <<<
    port 1 {
    speed 100g;
    port 2 {
    speed 10g;


    According to our documentation it is mandatory to either reset the MPC or MIC when port speed is changed on MPC7, MPC8 and MPC9:


    Note: When you change the port speed at the port level, you must rest the MPC for the configuration to take effect. Because resetting the MPC takes several minutes and since it affects all the PFEs, you can choose to use the request chassis mic mic-slot mic-slot-number fpc-slot fpc-slot-number (offline | online) command to reset the MIC and apply your configuration changes. An alarm is generated indicating the change in port speed. For guidelines on configuring rate selectability, see Guidelines for Configuring Rate Selectability.


    In your case if you have changed the port speed on any port of FPC3, then you can use the following command to clear it:


    request chassis mic mic-slot 0 fpc-slot 3 offline

    request chassis mic mic-slot 0 fpc-slot 3 online


    Following are the documentation links for your reference:
