Release Information

Statement introduced in JUNOS Release 9.6 for EX-series switches.

Description

Disable rather than block an interface when enforcing MAC limiting, MAC move limiting, and rate-limiting configuration options for shutting down the interface; and allow the interface to recovery automatically from the error condition after a specified period of time:

Note: The port-error-disable configuration does not apply to pre-existing error conditions. It impacts only error conditions that are detected after port-error-disable has been enabled and committed. To clear a pre-existing error condition and restore the interface to service, use the clear ethernet-switching port-error command.

  • If you have enabled mac-limit with the shutdown option and enable port-error-disable, the switch disables (rather than shuts down) the interface when the MAC address limit is reached.
  • If you have enabled mac-move-limit with the shutdown option and you enable port-error-disable, the switch disables (rather than shuts down) the interface when the maximum number of moves to a new interface is reached.
  • If you have enabled storm-control with the action-shutdown option and you enable port-error-disable, the switch disables (rather than shuts down) the interface when broadcast traffic and unknown unicast traffic exceeds the specified levels.

Default

Not enabled.
