Initiate PSC migration slot 3 to 4.
Issue timeline:

10 AM EST - Customer noticed high pdp activation failures.  They also see OSPF down in IU context.  They isolated this to line card 19 which was served by PSC slot 3. They also see SCT task with high CPU.  SSD also showed port 25/1 bounce at the time of issue start.

12-1 PM EST - Customer proceeded with workaround to do psc migration from slot 3 to 4.  However, PSC in slot 3 was not coming up active.  Three psc cards were used to replaced the original one, but still failed.

1 PM EST - Customer opened an SR with Cisco TAC for assistance. TAC collected SSDs and syslog for analysis.  Customer also started to offload subs from SGSN and changing the IU flex ratio to this SGSN.  We also saw that the PSC in slot 3 showed Reason=CARD_POWER_JUMPER_PRESENT.

2 PM EST - While waiting for subs to offload, we continued to troubleshoot the psc in slot 3 with no success. We also reboot SMC card 9 (stand-by)to prep it for a possible SMC card migration. SMC card 9 also showed status as "unlocked" instead of "locked".

3 PM - We also put the original PSC card removed from slot 3 back to the chassis.  Subsequently, we see several PSC cards starting to reboot itself.  At this point, customer shutdowned all iu interfaces toward RNC to further isolate this SGSN.

3:40 PM EST - After collecting additional debug logs and reboot preparation, the chassis was reloaded.

4 PM EST - The node came back working again.  Customer migrated the traffic back.  Other than ias-timer, iar-time not having the correct values, the SGSN is operating normally.

4:30 PM - Customer continues to monitor node.
