When this happens, the supervisors keepalive polling does not receive a response from the module within the allotted time and the supervisor reboots the module in order to try to gain a better connection to it.

The switch reports the error message:

%C6KPWR-4-DISABLED: Power to module in slot [dec] set [chars]

This message indicates that the module in the indicated slot was powered off for the indicated reason. [dec] is the slot number, and [chars] indicates the power status.

To resolve this problem :Recovery depends on the indicated reason. Using the information provided in the error message, troubleshoot and resolve the power problem. If necessary, replace defective components.
