"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Here you go:

Forcing Failover

To force the standby unit to become active, enter one of the following commands:


failover active
Example:
hostname# failover active
Forces a failover when entered on the standby unit in a failover pair. The standby unit becomes the active unit.

no failover active
Example:
hostname# no failover active
Forces a failover when entered on the active unit in a failover pair. The active unit becomes the standby unit.
