request interface load-balancing switchover (Aggregated Multiservices)



Switch the active member interface to the backup state.

In the case of mobile control plane redundancy, the behavior depends on the replication state of the member interface:

  • If the sync state is in-sync, then the active member is rebooted and the backup member becomes the new active member.

  • If the sync-state is in-progress, then the force option must be used to force the switchover.


    In this case, there is a risk of losing subscriber information because the synchronization has not yet been completed.



Name of the member interface. The member interface format is mams-a/b/0, where a is the FPC slot number and b is the PIC slot number.


(Optional) Force the switchover from the active member to the backup member.
