Question
Is it possible to hotswap VIM Modules on Summit series switches?
Environment
  • Summit series switch with VIM option slot.
Answer
VIM Modules are not hot-swappable as described in the Summit Family Hardware Install Guide.  This is specifically discussed in several areas of the "Replacing Port Option Cards and VIMs" section, one of which is quoted below.

"Summit VIMs are not hot-swappable. Disconnect power to the switch before removing an installed VIM. After a VIM is installed in a compatible switch, you can hot-swap the installed SFP, SFP+, and QSFP+ modules. Use only SFP, SFP+, and QSFP+ modules approved by Extreme Networks."
