Removing a Module

Note: Although not required, it is recommended that you issue the slot disable command from the CLI before removing a module.



Caution: If you do not use the halt command before removing or powering down an SRP, the system's NVS card may become corrupted.

To remove a module:

  1. Enter the halt command.

See E-Series System Basics Configuration Guide, Chapter 5, Managing Line Modules and SRP Modules for information about the halt command.

  1. Ground yourself by using an antistatic wrist strap or other device.
  2. Use a screwdriver to loosen the thumb screws located at the top and bottom of the module panel.
  3. Pull the ejector handles located at the top and bottom of the module so that they are in position 2, as shown in Figure 5-6.

  1. Carefully slide the module out of the chassis.
  2. Place the module in its antistatic bag.
  3. Cover the empty chassis slot with a blank faceplate, and tighten the faceplate's captive screws using a Phillips screwdriver. Turn both screws several times before tightening them completely.

If you remove an I/O module and not the corresponding line module, the line module reboots. Its status becomes "inactive" when you issue the show version command.

If you remove a line module and do not delete the corresponding configuration, the status of the line module will be "not present" when you issue the show version command.
