[c-nsp] 7200VXR to ASR upgrade

Hey Charles, 

Just wondering if you ever powered up the 1002-X and tried issuing "router
bgp xxxx".

Judging from others' emails and the Feature Navigator
(http://tools.cisco.com/ITDIT/CFN/jsp/compareImages.jsp) it looks like IPv4
BGP/OSPF are included in IP Base. 

However, the Feature Navigator also makes it seem that just getting  "Cisco
ASR1002-X IOS XE UNIVERSAL" would be enough for these features. I'm probably
misunderstanding, though. My assumption is that you need to get UNIVERSAL
and the IP BASE feature set.

Does anyone know for sure that you actually have to order a feature set, and
can't get away with UNIVERSAL alone?

I have a 1002-x in my garage waiting to be staged (powered off at the moment
because it is the loudest piece of 2U equipment I've ever encountered).
It's IP Base while I wait on the reseller and cisco to give us the smartnet
access we paid for already.

Is verifying if bgp is available in base as simple as typing "router bgp"
and seeing if it complains?

If so, I'll power it up and check.

Oh, also a note to those new to the platform and coming from the
7200 series, you can't just turn the router off.  You have to reload, watch
the console, and power off when you see the bootloader.  That seems pretty
hokey to me.  I suppose your protection if you don't trust your colo
provider is to have multiple boot devices in the box in case one gets
garbled on power loss.
