Configuring Autorecovery for MAC Limited or Storm Control Interfaces (CLI Procedure)

 

An Ethernet access interface might shut down or be disabled as a result of one of the following configurations:

  • MAC limiting—mac-limit statement is configured with action shutdown.

  • MAC move limiting—mac-move-limit statement is configured with action shutdown.

  • Storm control—storm-control statement is configured with the action shutdown.

You can configure a device to automatically restore the disabled interfaces to service after a specified period of time. Autorecovery applies to all the interfaces that have been disabled due to MAC limiting, MAC move limiting, or storm control errors.

To configure autorecovery from the disabled state due to MAC limiting, MAC move limiting, or storm control shutdown actions:

[edit ethernet-switching-options]

user@switch# set port-error-disable disable-timeout seconds
Note

You must specify the disable timeout value—there is no default disable timeout period. If you do not specify a timeout value, you must use the clear ethernet-switching port-error command to clear the errors and restore the interfaces to service.
