Re: deleting config from a removed module

Hi Fillip,

If you are using CatOS, the command

clear config ##

Otherwise, in IOS you can set under interface config mode the command

config-if#module clear-config

This will clear the config of a line card (except a supervisor) whenever it's removed. At the present time however, no command exists which will clear config after the line card has been removed.

So, to get around this you could re-insert the line card, configure module clear-config and remove it again.

Hope this helps,

Michael

In addition to Micheal's post, if you dont have the module in the switch rt now, you can take a backup of the config using a TFTP server. Then open the config using a notepad and remove the module config that you dont want and save the file. Once that it done TFTP the file back to the Supervisor and then copy the same to the running-config and then wr mem.

Michael,

thanks for your swift answer,

Something is not yet clear.

Will the command module clear-config remove all config from all removed modules because we cannot specify a specific module number?

greetings

Re: deleting config from a removed module

Hello Fillip,

Yes it will remove config from any module you remove from the switch.

That is why you would probably only turn it on just before removing a module, then turn it back off again.

Hope this answers your question.
