Hello Fabio,


Your question is very interesting.


Currently the ACE module does not have command like that.


What you can do is to run these commands below to see the slot number and try to map using the mac addresses.


#show arp

#show interfaces

#show hardware.


Probably, you may need to ask for a enhancement request.


Hope this helps!!!

Hello Fabio,


I am sorry, I am not sure about your question.


You said you want to know how you can determine if a switch contains an ACE module, correct?


Mmm, well, you can do # show module

Hi Fabio,


As Jorge mentioned you can issue a "show module" command on the devices in your core network. This will provide you with a list of all the modules installed on the respective devices. As ACEs can be installed on the Cisco Catalyst 6500 Series Switches and Cisco 7600 Series Routers, thus these are the only devices you need to do a "show module" on thus saving you some time.

Hello Fabio,


Then, in summary:


From the switch to get the details of th ACE you can do: #show module


Switch--->#show module --->ACE


From the ACE to get the details of the Switch, there´s NO command to get those details, currently.


ACE----> X Switch


Please mark it, if you consider it useful.


Hope this helps.
