I am not able to ping or ssh into my IPS module. I am not able to access it via the router either. When I try to create a session via the router I get the following : Trying xx.xxx.xxx.xxxx, 2114 Open..... and it just sits there. Is there another way to access it and/or reboot the module, without restarting the router.
1. You can reset the NME-IPS module from the Router CLI.
This will only reset the NME-IPS not the Router.
router# service-module ids-sensor 1/0 reset
Use reset only to recover from shutdown or failed state
Warning: May lose data on the hard disc!
Do you want to reset?[confirm]
2. After it comes back up, check if the module is responsive.
You can also issue: 'show inventory' and check if the module is even detected by the router.
If the module is not even detected by the router, it may be an hardware issue.
3. Check if the module is correctly configured.
Check my configuration document for this.
