request lacp link-switchover



Release Information

Command introduced in Junos OS Release 9.3.


Manually switch aggregated Ethernet active or standby LACP links.


Because this command overrides LACP priority calculations, we strongly recommend that you use this command only when the actor (in this case, the Juniper Networks router) is controlling the active or standby link and the partner (peer) is following. This scenario occurs when you configure only the actor for link protection.


aexAggregated Ethernet logical interface number: 0 through 15.
