In order to remove a module I am not using in a 6509.

i attempted to run this command from global config mode. I think i might need to log into the IDSM-2 CLI ?


For Cisco IOS software:

hw-module module module_number shutdown

Hi


You should be able to shutdown the IDSM-2 module from the command line. I have used the command you tried many times on IDSM-2 and FWSM and it always worked but you don't run it from global config mode just from enable mode.


How are you verifying it has not worked. I run a "sh module" after issuing the command and the status should say "shutdown".

the command does not go in, comes back with unknown command and with the '^' pointer. I was attempting to run this in global config mode, not enable. Perhaps that was the issue?

If you are running IOS then yes, that will be your problem. You can only run this command from enable mode. After running it you can run a "sh module" and look at the status of the relevant module.

or you can run this command with "do" prefix. Like: "do hw-module module module_number shutdown". "Do" executes ENABLE mode commands from CONFIG mode

Hi,


If you have physicall access to the switch, you may choose the shutdown "button" on the module to bring the module down.


Kind Regards,
