Hot Swapping Switch Modules

Hot Swapping Switch Modules
The switch modules can be "hot swapped" (except for the Management
Module, it is not hot swappable), that is installed or replaced while the switch
is powered on (See Module Installation Notes on
differ slightly, though between adding new modules to an empty slot or
replacing modules with the same type, and exchanging the module with a
different type.

Adding or Replacing Modules

If a module has to be replaced with one of the same type, or you are expanding
the switch capability by adding a module in a slot where one was not previ-
ously installed (since the last switch reboot), the replaced or new module is
immediately operational; there is no interruption to the switch operation.

Changing the Module Type

If you exchange a module with a different type of module though, for example
a 10/100/1000-T zl Module is installed in place of a 4 port 10G X2 Module that
was in the slot, the switch must be rebooted after the new module is installed
so the switch processor can properly initialize and configure the new module
You can reboot the switch by any of the following methods:
Until the switch is rebooted, the module will not operate and the Module
Status LED for the affected slot will continue to flash.
Pressing the Reset button on the front of the switch.
Unplugging and plugging in the power cord (power cycle). If two power
supplies are installed, both power cords would have to be unplugged.
Issuing the boot command from the switch console CLI, or selecting the
boot Switch option from the switch console menu, the web browser
interface, or ProCurve Manager.
