port-error-disable

Syntax

Hierarchy Level

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 recover automatically from the error condition after a specified period of time:

  • If you have enabled MAC limiting with the shutdown option and you 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 limiting 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 applicable traffic exceeds the specified levels. Depending upon the configuration, applicable traffic could include broadcast, unknown unicast, and multicast traffic.

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 operational command that appears in your CLI:

The remaining statement is explained separately. See CLI Explorer.
