When you need to only the change the unified ports inside an expansion slot of a Nexus 5500, you do not have to reload the entire switch to activate the unified port changes. You can simply restart only the module like this:

nx5548up-a# config t
nx5548up-a(config)# slot 2
nx5548up-a(config-slot)# port 1-16 type fc
nx5548up-a(config-slot)# end
nx5548up-a# copy run start
nx5548up-a# poweroff module 2
nx5548up-a# no poweroff module 2

Share the wealth!
