Configures the action taken when the failtimer expires.
|name||Specifies the name of an EAPS domain.|
|open-secondary-port||Specifies to open the secondary port when the failtimer expires.|
|send-alert||Specifies that a critical message is sent to the syslog when the failtimer expires.|
Default is send-alert.
By default the action is to send an alert if the failtimer expires. Instead of going into a Failed state, the master node remains in a Complete or Init state, maintains the secondary port blocking, and writes a critical error message to syslog warning the user that there is a fault in the ring. An SNMP trap is also sent.
If the EAPS ring contains non-EAPS devices, you must use the open-secondary-port parameter.
Use caution when setting the failtimer expiry action to open-secondary port. Using this configuration, if the master node loses three consecutive hello PDUs, the failtimer expires—but there might not be a break in the ring. Opening the secondary port in this situation creates a loop.
The following command configures the failtimer expiry action for EAPS domain eaps_1:
configure eapseaps_1 failtimeexpiry-action open-secondary-port
