I have shutdown the ASA SSM module with

hw-module module 1 shutdown

How can I power it on again.

I have this problem too.

Hardware reset means the ASA SSM module will actually reboot itself rather than just reload the software.

You can't use "hw-module module 1 reload" because the SSM module needs to be up for this command to take effect. As you have shut the module down it won't respond to the reload option.

A reset does not set the config back to default or anything. What a reset does is simply a shutdown followed by a restart.

But this would perform a hardware reset. I am not sure what all is included in the hardware reset, probably configuration or license loss.

I just need a reboot/power on command.
