clear ancp neighbor



Clear the ANCP agent connection with all ANCP neighbors or with the specified ANCP neighbor. This command deletes information for subscribers associated with the neighbor, causing the adjusted traffic rates to revert to the configured rate for the subscriber interfaces. The neighbor remains configured (its administrative state is enabled) and can reestablish adjacencies.

This command initiates logout of ANCP-triggered dynamic VLAN sessions on the physical interface associated with the specified neighbor; conventionally autosensed dynamic VLAN sessions and their associated logical interfaces are not affected.
