Locate a ICL blade in a DSC


We need to re-seat a ICL CORE BLADE   52     CORE8  in a DCX

I wonder if there is a comnmand we can use to loacte the blade in the chassis so its easier to find, and so we dont pull the wrong blade ?

The slots are identified 1 to 12 from the left to the right while looking at the port side of the chassis.

Or, if you have a so called "4 slot" chassis, then you have two port blades, then core, CP, one more CP, one more core and again two port blades.

You can use "portbeacon" command to flash a number of ports on the blade you need to highlight.
