Switching Over to the Standby Redundant Management Module

boot code and load the active redundant management module's flash code (system software) and system-config
If you do not want to reload the system but you instead want to force the system to switch over to the standby
module (and thus make it the active redundant management module), use one of the following methods.
To switch over to the other redundant management module, enter a command such as the following:
HP9300# reset 2
Syntax: reset <slot-num>
Specify the slot number containing the currently active management module. Do not specify the slot number
containing the standby module to which you want to switch over.
The <slot-num> parameter specifies the chassis slot:
Slots on an HP 9304M chassis are numbered 1 – 4, from top to bottom.
Slots on an HP 9308M chassis are numbered 1 – 8, from left to right.
