3800 service-module session won't connect

I always have problems with this when configuring 3845s with a Switching module.

From what I understand, you just need to IP the interface gi2/0, and you're good to go, but I keep getting this:

mdf-rt-01#service-module gi2/0 session

Trying, 2130 ...

Here is relevant config:

interface GigabitEthernet0/0

description $ETH-LAN$$ETH-SW-LAUNCH$$INTF-INFO-GE 0/0$

no ip address


duplex auto

speed auto

media-type rj45

interface GigabitEthernet2/0


ip address

ip verify unicast source reachable-via rx allow-default

ip helper-address

ip helper-address

no ip redirects

no ip unreachables

ip nbar protocol-discovery

ip pim sparse-mode

Which exact module is this? "show diag" if you are not sure.

Try removing all the config on Gig 2/0 (default interface Gig 2/0) and just put the IP address.
