Hi Mahesh,

By default, the console of the standby supervisor is disabled.

Probably you might try to do below and see if you can enable it


Switch#conf t

Switch(config)#redundancy

Switch(config-red)#main-cpu

Switch(config-r-mo)#standby console enable

If that doens't supported, then you can user virtual console i.e. by logging in to standby sup from active sup console

Switch# session module 2

Connecting to standby virtual console

Type "exit" or "quit" to end this session

Switch-standby-console# exit

Switch#

Hi Manju,

Thanks for reply.

I tried to enable console for standby switch but seems it does not support it.

redundancy ?
 

sw(config)#redundancy
sw(config-red)#main?
main-cpu 

sw(config-red)#main-cpu
sw(config-red)#main-cpu ?
 

sw(config-red)#main-cpu
sw(config-r-mc)#?
Main CPU redundancy configuration commands:
  auto-sync  Sync elements
  default    Set a command to its defaults
  exit       Exit from main-cpu configuration mode
  no         Negate a command or set its defaults

Thanks

Hi Manju,

Also when i login by session mod 4

sw-standby-console#r?

Standby console disabled.

Valid commands are: exit, logout

There is no option to enable console on standby switch .

So we can say that standby switch console is disabled by defaut right?

Thanks

Hi Manju,

Seems console on standby Supe is disabled by design on 4507 E  switches.

Thanks for the help
