configure slot module

configure slot slot module module_type


Configures a slot for a particular type of node.

Syntax Description


Specifies the slot number.


The particular switch in the SummitStack.

Usage Guidelines

The configure sharing lacp timeout command displays different switch parameters depending on the type of switch you are configuring and the version of ExtremeXOS running on the switch.

Upon powering up the stack, ExtremeXOS automatically determines the system power budget and protects the switch from any potential overpower configurations. If power is available, ExtremeXOS powers on and initializes the nodes in the stack. When ExtremeXOS detects that a node will cause an overpower condition, the node remains powered down, and is not initialized. An entry is made to the system log indicating the condition.

The module type must be a switch that supports SummitStack.


The following command configures slot 2 in a stack for a ExtremeSwitching X460-G2 switch:

# configure slot 2 module X460-G2


This command was first available in ExtremeXOS 10.1.
