Normally from the supervisor, I can find the card as follows:


Mod Slot Ports Module-Type Model Sub Status

--- ---- ----- ------------------------- ------------------- --- --------

1 1 2 1000BaseX Supervisor WS-X6K-SUP1A-2GE yes ok

15 1 1 Multilayer Switch Feature WS-F6K-MSFC2 no ok

.

.

.


From the supervisor I enter sess 15 and I can acces this module.

Now, I get:


sess 15 [enter]

Module 15 is not installed.



Circumstances as follows cause the module to be inaccessible:


When I tried to test upgrading the catOS and IOS on the switch B,

I found that the bootflash was full and the previous IOS had

to be deleted to make room for the new version. I deleted

the IOS file from the bootflash, but the space was not made

available. I then ran the "squeeze" command. However, this

resulted in an error message about the flash is now in a

inconsistent state. I proceeded to reload the IOS and

eventually reset the supervisor card.

After this sequence of events, mod 15 no longer

appeared.


How do I recover this?

Have you tried session 16? Can you post the 'show mod' ouput?
