Nexus 7009 Dual Sup - Active Console Port

Folks,

I've been looking thriough the Nexus docs to understand how the console ports in an active supervisor environment is supposed to work.  I've been unable to find anything.

What I've discovered in a POC is that the console port on Sup 1 stays active even when in a 'show redundancy status' perspective the module is the standby Sup.  I found this confusing.  What I wanted to do was console in on the active Sup to switchover the Sup modules so that Sup 1 is the active module.  But since the active console is on Sup 1, now the Standby Sup, I get all kinds of messages saying I'm not allowed to do that from the Standby Sup.

What have I missed?

Thanks,

Timothy
