Clearing the Shutdown State

If you configure the switch to shut down upon detecting a fault, and the switch enters the shutdown state, you must explicitly clear the shutdown state and reboot for the switch to become functional.
  1. Clear the shutdown state with the command:
    clear sys-recovery-level

    On a SummitStack, use the command:

    clear sys-recovery-level slot slot

    The switch prompts you to confirm this action. The following is a sample confirmation message:

    Are you sure you want to clear sys-recovery-level? (y/n)
  2. Enter y to confirm this action and clear the shutdown state. Enter n or press [Enter] to cancel this action.
After you clear the shutdown state, use the reboot command to bring the switch and ports back online. After rebooting, the switch is operational.
