Release Information

Statement introduced in JUNOS Release 9.6 for EX Series switches.


Specify how long the Ethernet switching interfaces remain in a disabled state due to MAC limiting, MAC move limiting, or storm control errors.

Note: If you modify the timeout value of an existing disable timeout, the new timeout value does not impact the timing of restoration to service of currently disabled interfaces that have been configured for automatic recovery. The new timeout value is applied only during the next occurrence of a port error.

You can bring up the currently disabled interfaces by running the clear ethernet-switching port-error command.


The disable timeout is not enabled.


timeout—Time, in seconds, that the disabled state remains in effect. The disabled interface is automatically restored to service when the specified timeout value is reached.

Range: 10 through 3600 seconds
