How to power off a single blade

Does anyone know how I can power off a single blade when the Management Processor is unreachable? I have a c-class (C7000)chassis, and 4 of my blades cannot be managed. I read that I need to disconnect power to the blade (which means pulling it from the chassis) in order to reset it. Does anybody know of a way that I can do this without having to physically remove the system from the chassis?

Small problem, when I run the command, and it asks me to confirm, I type yes and it says "Operation terminated by user". Any ideal what this means before I go looking?

Re: How to power off a single blade

Never mind, I was just typing Y, I typed YES and it worked great. Thank you for the help and some insight into managing these things...as you can probably guess, I am new to the Blade systems and I didn't set these up, I just started managing them.

Thanks again
