show module ?? Hw, Fw, Sw


Anybody know what the output meaning of "show module" command for FWSM?

Hw == 3.0

Fw == 7.2(1)

Sw == 2.3(4)

Re: show module ?? Hw, Fw, Sw


I was not able to find " sh module " command for fwsm.

Are you sure it's the exact command you ran in fwsm.

Sorry, the command was running under switch, not module. Thanks

Re: show module ?? Hw, Fw, Sw

To display module status and information, use the show module command. For supervisor engines, the show module command displays the supervisor engine number but appends the uplink daughter card's module type and information.

If you do not specify a module number, all modules are shown.

The MAC addresses for the supervisor engine are displayed in three lines of output. The first line lists the two MAC addresses for inband ports, the second line lists the two MAC addresses for the two gigabit-uplink ports, and the third line lists the allocated 0x3ff MAC address for the chassis backplane.

If you place the MSFC on a supervisor engine installed in slot 1, then the MSFC is recognized as module 15. If you install the supervisor engine in slot 2, the MSFC is recognized as module 16.

The slot field in the show module command display is required because submodules, such as the MSM, reside in the same slot as the supervisor engine module, but are treated as a separate module.

The MSM is referenced by the module number in all other CLI commands and is treated like any other module.
