    Is there a way to safely remove the SRE module from the router without causing a reboot? We are wanting to upgrade the memory of our SRE's but did not want the downtime of a router reset.

    Online insertion and removal is only possible on 39xx. The command that needs to be issue is hardware-module sm x/0 oir stop and then oir start, something like that.



    Thanks

    Is this a limitation of the 2911 hardware or software? I could not find a way to power off the module in a 2911 even though I should be able to with energywise commands. I would think that if I am replacing it with the same module type the IOS should not be unhappy. Is this a possible feature request? Seems that memory upgrades should be able to be completed without an IOS restart (power off/on).


    Router#hw-module sm 1 energywise  level ?
       0      SHUT
       1      HIBERNATE
       2      SLEEP
       3      STANDBY
       4      READY
       5      LOW
       6      FRUGAL
       7      MEDIUM
       8      REDUCED
       9      HIGH
       10     FULL
      <0-10>  Select appropriate level from the list

    Scott,



    This hot removal is supported on the 39xx routers only for the SRE modules.  I've provided the steps below.  More details are available in our 'Installation and Configuration Guide' section 'Online Insertion and Removal of the Cisco SRE Service Module'.



    1. service-module sm slot/0 shutdown

    2. service-module sm slot/0 status

    3. hw-module sm 1 oir-stop



    Thanks,
