Resetting Line Modules and SRP Modules
Two recessed buttons on line modules and SRP modules provide the mechanisms for resetting. You can use the NMI button to reset the software on the module and the board reset button to reset the module. See Figure 1-12.
If a line module fails to respond for an extended time, there may be a software problem with that module. You can depress the software reset button with a paper clip to suspend the current software task. Depending on the situation, this action may also reset the software on the module.
If depressing the software reset button fails to correct the issue with the line module, depress the board reset button. This action reboots the line module.
The buttons work in the same way for the SRP module. Depressing the board reset button on an SRP module is equivalent to rebooting the E-series router and causes all the line modules to reboot.
