Enabling and disabling fabric modules

The fabric modules can be enabled or disabled even if they are not present in the switch. You cannot disable both fabric modules at the same time; one must be enabled.

Use this command to enable or disable the redundant fabric modules. Disabling one fabric module reduces the overall switching capacity of the series switches. On some networks where network utilization is less than 50%, you may not notice any degradation of performance.


redundancy fabric-module [1 | 2] [enable | disable]

Allows enabling or disabling of fabric modules. (You cannot have both fabric modules disabled at the same time.)

Default: Both fabric modules are enabled.


The redundant fabric modules do not support nonstop switching.
