We need to ensure that the following three packages are activated

	disk0:asr9k-mpls-px-4.3.4 - needed for MPLS
	disk0:asr9k-optic-px-4.3.4 - needed for non Cisco Optics
	disk0:asr9k-doc-px-4.3.4 - Used for on-line documentation

RP/0/RSP0/CPU0:ios(admin)#install activate disk0:asr9k-mpls-px-4.3.4   disk0:asr9k-optic-px-4.3.4 disk0:asr9k-doc-px-4.3.4

N.B. For each package installation the router will re-load itself

Once that you have installed a package you have to commit it:

RP/0/RSP0/CPU0:ios(admin)#install commit

Then activate the new patches in the following order

RP/0/RSP0/CPU0:ios(admin)#install activate disk0:asr9k-px-4.3.4.CSCui94441-1.0
RP/0/RSP0/CPU0:ios(admin)#install commit
