I need to remove a supervisor card in a 6506 switch. Its a hot spare (not Active) - WS-SUP720-3B - I require it on another site.
Anyone attempted this while the unit was powered up (hot remove) - is it possible ?
Also I notice a command -
module clear config
I am curious to know how this works. It claims to clear the config when the sup card is removed - but if the unit is powered down - how does it know it has been removed.
Any help appreciated

More hunting around -
so you are correct !
I would prefer to shutdown the module prior to removal -
However the commands
#hw-module module X shutdown - doesnt work for me - I dont have a shutdown option
#no power enable module X - doesnt work for supcards (%Error: no power control on supervisor cards)
Do I need to upgrade my software to enable this feature -
running on s72033-ipservicesk9-mz.122-33.SXI2a.bin
Any ideas ???
You don't need to make it very complicated.
Just make sure the supervisor card you are trying to remove is not the on-line one.
Loosen the s_crews and use the eject levers and pull out the card. It is that simple.
I've replaced alot of supervisor cards and I've never seen so much complication.
