About directing the standby module to become active

To make the standby management module become the active management module, use the redundancy switchover command. The switch will switchover after all files have finished synchronizing.

In nonstop switching mode:

  • The switchover occurs quickly and seamlessly; no reboot is needed.

  • There is no interruption in switching operations.

In warm-standby mode:

  • The switchover may take several minutes if there have been recent configuration file changes or if you have downloaded a new operating system.

  • The standby module finishes booting and becomes the active module.

The formerly active module becomes the standby module if it passes selftest.
