How to disable core dump on failing Sup720

Unanswered Question
Nov 6th, 2008

I have setup redundancy on my cat 6509 with dual sup720s

in the cat 6500 configuration guide

it states:-

Supervisor engine switchover takes place after the failed supervisor engine completes a core dump. A core dump can take up to 15 minutes. To get faster switchover time, disable core dump on the supervisor engines

how is this done? I cannot find the command to disable a core dump

I have this problem too.

just type command "no exception dump" or

"no exception flash".

Check for any " execption" command in your running config and just disable it using the "no " form.
