Unanswered Question
Apr 23rd, 2009

Hi Team,

We need to reset/reload one of the module of our core switch i.e.WS-C6509-E. Moreover, we have tried the command reset 4 (module no.) but it's not working. Please provide us the command to reset the module.

I have this problem too.

Hello Saurabh,

it should be

hw-module module 4 reset

given in SWitch# privileged mode

Switch#hw-module module 4 ?

boot Specify boot options for the module through Power Management Bus control register

reset Reset specified component

simulate Simulate options for the module

some specific service modules like CSM or other can require different approach

This is good for normal linecards

Hope to help

Hi Giuseppe,

I have tried reseting one of the module of WS-C6509-E. I could not complete the process because of below error.

% module 3 is operationally Off (Module Reset due to exception or user request)
