Guidelines for Deactivating High Availability

You can disable high availability (stateful SRP switchover) by launching Redundancy Configuration mode and issuing the mode file-system-synchronization command or specifying the no mode command.

In the file-system-synchronization mode, the router synchronizes the files and data such as configuration files and releases that are stored in NVS (nonvolatile storage) between the primary and standby SRP modules. This is the default behavior mode for E Series routers that contain redundant SRPs.

Because this mode uses file synchronization instead of transaction-based mirroring, when the active SRP module switches to the standby SRP, the router cold-starts.
