request interface (revert | switchover) (Adaptive Services)



(M Series and T Series routers only) Manually revert to the primary adaptive services interface or link services IQ interface, or to switch from the primary to the secondary interface.

On an aggregated Ethernet interface with link protection enabled, use the request interface (revert | switchover) (Aggregated Ethernet Link Protection) operational command to manually revert egress traffic from the designated backup link to the designated primary link, or to manually switch egress traffic from the primary link to the backup link. For information about this command, see request interface (revert | switchover) (Aggregated Ethernet Link Protection).
