Hi All,

How to shutdown Content Switching Module in Cat 6500 switches ? I want to shutdown only CSM-Module without disturbing Chassis.

Can anyone please send me the command on that ?

Highly appreciate your valuable reply.

Assuming you are using IOS, you can power-down a module in a 6500 chassis using the command

"no power enable module " in global config mode where is the slot number of the CSM.

If you are using CatOS then the command would be:

"set module power down "

The CSM should be hot-swappable so you should be able to just pull it out of the chassis, but I think that is a bit vicious if you only want to shut it down.
