Configuring Lockout of Protection for SDH Interfaces


To configure Annex B lockout, perform the following steps:

  1. In configuration mode, go to the [edit interfaces interface-name sonet-options aps] hierarchy level, where the interface-name is so-fpc/pic/port.
  2. Configure the annex-b option.
  3. Configure the lockout option to provide a lockout of protection, forcing the use of the working circuit and locking out the protect circuit regardless of anything else.
