hot pluggin a v35 cable into serial port

Hello

Just would like to understand, is it good to plug a live serial v35 cable into a live serial port i.e with a router power on? Will it damage router hardware? or may be external csu/dsu?

If yes or no, is it the same for all other serial cables like RS232 etc.

Appreciate if Cisco can confirm that.

Regards.

hi jay

Switch off the external csu/dsu device and plug in the cable onto the serial port.

Hi Prem

Thanks. Most of the projects that i handle i will be doing a lot of hotstagin and involved testing serial ports n cables. This is the reason i would like to understand whether hot pluggin of cables is allowed in serial ports?

Tx.

as mentioned earlier by Prem, you can switch off external csu/dsu and also you can shut the serial interface of router and then plug the cable to the serial interface. once done you can then switch on csu/dsu and no shut serial interface.

Serial V.35 cables are hot pluggable.

only the serial modules are not hot pluggable

HTH, rate if it does
