enable smartredundancy

enable smartredundancy port_list


Enables the Smart Redundancy feature on the primary port.

Syntax Description


Specifies one or more ports or slots and ports.



Usage Guidelines

You must configure the software-controlled redundant port using the configure ports redundant command prior to enabling Smart Redundancy.

The Smart Redundancy feature works in concert with the software-controlled redundant port feature. With Smart Redundancy enabled on the switch, when the primary port becomes active the switch redirects all traffic to the primary port and blocks the redundant port again. If you disable Smart Redundancy, the primary port is blocked because traffic is now flowing through the redundant port.


The following command enables the Smart Redundancy feature on port 4 on a switch:

enable smartredundancy 4


This command was available in ExtremeXOS 11.1.
