request chassis cluster failover node



For chassis cluster configurations, initiate manual failover in a redundancy group from one node to the other, which becomes the primary node, and automatically reset the priority of the group to 255. The failover stays in effect until the new primary node becomes unavailable, the threshold of the redundancy group reaches 0, or you use the request chassis cluster failover reset command.

After a manual failover, you must use the request chassis cluster failover reset command before initiating another failover.


  • node node-number—Number of the chassis cluster node to which the redundancy group fails over.

  • Range: 0 through 1

  • redundancy-group group-number—Number of the redundancy group on which to initiate manual failover. Redundancy group 0 is a special group consisting of the two Routing Engines in the chassis cluster.

    Range: 0 through 255
