Disable management module redundancy with two modules present

To troubleshoot a suspect management module, you may want to operate the switch with redundant management disabled by entering this command:

switch# no redundancy management-module

After executing this command, the second management module will not boot into standby mode—it is offline and no longer receives configuration file changes from the active module. The active management module updates its config file with the information that redundancy is disabled.


Even if redundancy has been disabled, the specified management module becomes the active management module at the next system boot if you use the redundancy active-management command. You are warned that you may not be using current configurations. See Setting the active management module for next boot.

The second management module is enabled as the active management module in the event of a hardware failure of the first management module.

Results of disabling redundancy shows that redundant management was disabled.
