Packet Admin Commands

The switchover parameter is added to the system ethernetPort packetAdmin command to allow a user to initiate a port switchover within the SBC 7000 series redundancy pair. Logical port pkt0 is mapped to one of the physical ports (pkt0_p or pkt0_s) in the redundancy pair which is in ACTIVE role. Assuming that primary port pkt0_p is in ACTIVE role and secondary port pkt0_s is in STANDBY role, logical port pkt0 is mapped to pkt0_p.

When the command is executed, secondary port pkt0_s is switched to ACTIVE role and primary port pkt0_p is switched to STANDBY role. Logical port pkt0 mapping would be changed to point to secondary port pkt0_s. SBC allows the user to toggle the roles of physical ports in redundancy pair and change the mapping of logical port with physical ports in redundancy pair accordingly.

This command can be executed only on ACTIVE CE (node).
