clear slot

clear slot slot


Clears a slot of a previously assigned module type.

Syntax Description

slot Specifies the slot number.



Usage Guidelines

All configuration information related to the node and the ports on the switch is erased. If a node is present when you issue this command, the switch is reset to default settings.

If a node is configured for one type of switch, and a different type of switch is inserted in the stack, the inserted node is put into a mismatch state (where the inserted node does not match the configured node), and is not brought online. To use the new switch type in a node, the node configuration must be cleared or configured for the new switch type. Use the enable mirroring to port tagged command to configure the node.


The following command clears node 2 of a previously assigned switch type:

clear slot 2

The following command clears slot 4 of a previously assigned switch type in a stack:

clear slot 4
