Are you running IOS or CatOS.

If running IOS, when the switch starts, the switch processor (SP) boots up first. After a short amount of time (approximately 25 to 60 seconds) it transfers console ownership to the route processor (RP (MSFC)). The RP continues to load the bundled software image.

After the RP loads the IOS, you can send commands to the SP, simply execute the remote command from the RP exec prompt "remote command switch ".

For Hybrid OS, Bot SP and RP boots separately. SP runs on CatOS and RP runs the IOS on it. Bydefault you will be on the SP and on " Console>" prompt. You can either session to RP using command " session 15" or change the console to RP using " switch console" commands.

HTH,Please rate if it does.
