configure esrp ports restart

configure esrp ports ports restart


Configures ESRP to restart ports if there is a state change and the downstream switch is from another vendor.

Syntax Description

ports Specifies one or more ports or slots and ports.



Usage Guidelines

If an ESRP domain becomes a slave, ESRP disconnects member ports that have port restart enabled. The disconnection of these ports causes downstream devices to remove the ports from their FDB tables. After 3 seconds the ports re-establish connection with the ESRP-enabled device. This feature allows you to use ESRP in networks that include equipment from other vendors.

If switch becomes a slave, ESRP disconnects the physical links of member ports that have port restart enabled.

An ESRP restart port cannot be a mirroring port, software-controlled redundant port, or Netlogin port.


The following command enables port restart for ports 7-9 in slot 3 on the ESRP master domain:

configure esrp port 3:7-3:9 restart


This command was first available in ExtremeXOS 11.0.
