Usage Guidelines

Usage Scenario

After modifying parameters of an interface, run the shutdown and undo shutdown commands to make the modification take effect.

When an interface is not connected to a cable or fiber, you can use the shutdown command to disable the interface to prevent exceptions caused by interference.


  • Disabling an interface during data transmission will cause data frame loss or service interruption. Exercise caution when you use the shutdown command.

  • Some logical interfaces, such as loopback, and null interfaces, do not support the shutdown and undo shutdown commands.

  • If you run the shutdown command in the Eth-Trunk interface view, all Eth-Trunk member interfaces are disabled.

  • Running the shutdown and undo shutdown commands is equivalent to running the restart command.

  • When an interface is configured with a sub-interface, the default interval for running the shutdown and undo shutdown commands on the main interface is 15 seconds. To change the interval, run the shutdown interval command.
