Cisco ACE

My Cisco ACE is hung and non-reponsive.  This particular ACE sits in a 6500 switch.  What is the best method to try to get it back online?  Reboot the switch? From CLI or Power button?  Other Ideas?

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Depending on if you want to troubleshoot it or not you can restart the ace module without rebooting the switch.  You will lose all your log data so you might want to back it up first.  Here are the steps for that.  I would back up the data incase you encounter another issue, cisco will want the logs.
