Active/Standby Switchover

Active/Standby Switchover

In a stack containing multiple fixed switches, you can manually switch the master and standby switches during software upgrade or system maintenance. After the active/standby switchover is complete, the original master switch joins the stack after restarting, and the original standby switch becomes the new master switch.

On modular switches, you can manually perform an active/standby switchover on MPUs during software upgrade or system maintenance. After the active/standby switchover is performed, the running active MPU restarts. The standby MPU becomes the new active MPU.

<HUAWEI> system-view
[HUAWEI] slave switchover enable
[HUAWEI] slave switchover
