Assigns the port weight for the specified ESRP port(s).
|ports||Specifies one or more ports or slots and ports.|
|auto||Specifies the switch to calculate the weight of a port based on the port‘s bandwidth and link speed.|
|port-weight||Specifies an ESRP port weight of 0. With a port weight of 0, the ports are not counted.|
The switch automatically calculates the weight of a port based on the bandwidth of the port.
Use this command to override the automatically calculated port weight.
The port-weight parameter specifies a weight of 0. With this configuration, ESRP does not count host ports and normal ports as active. With a weight of 0, ESRP experiences fewer state changes due to frequent client activities like rebooting and unplugging laptops. A don‘t-count port cannot be a mirroring, software-controlled redundant port, or a Netlogin port.
For load shared ports, configure one master port in the load-share group with the port weight. A single command specifies the weight for the entire load shared group. You can specify any port from the load share group in the command. A load-shared port has an aggregate weight of all of its member ports. If you add or delete a member port (or trunk), the weight of the master load-shared port is updated. For more information about load sharing, see Configuring Slots and Ports on a Switch.
The following command configures port 1 on slot 3 with a weight of 0:
configure esrp port 3:1 weight 0
