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.
