Hello Arun,

you can try to reload the module with


hw-module module 2 reset


if this is not enough have someone to reseat the card but verify it is hot-swappable I always powered off the switch when dealing with supervisors


It looks like to be hot-swappable

see

Hope to help

All modules in a 6500 chassis are hot-swappable, including the supervisors. This is called online insertion and removal. There is a very small but real risk that there could be a switching bus stall when any module is inserted or removed and the system is in centralized forwarding mode.
