clearing messages on the display of the SFM

Unanswered Question
Jul 17th, 2008

Hello, could anyone help, we have a cat 6500 with a SFM, recently the SFM display started showing Power Unit Fan Alarms, we replaced the power unit, the messages still show on the display at the front off the SFM, does anyone know if there is anyway to clear these messages. Apologies if I have posted this in the wrong place.

I have this problem too.

As far as clearing the LCD goes, at this point, there is currently no way to do that without resetting the module. Alarm messages stay visible on the display of the SFM even after alarm condition has cleared. The only way to clear these messages is to reset the SFM through OIR, cold boot, or "hw-module module *slot#* reset" command.
