Enabling or disabling negotiated failover for a network interface

You can enable or disable negotiated failover for a network interface to trigger automatic takeover if the interface experiences a persistent failure. You can use the nfo option of the ifconfig command to enable or disable negotiated failover.

You can specify the nfo option for an interface group. However, you cannot specify the nfo option for any underlying physical interface of the interface group.
  1. To enable takeover during interface failure, enter the following command: options cf.takeover.on_network_interface_failure on
  2. To enable or disable negotiated failover, enter the following command: ifconfig interface_name {nfo|-nfo} interface_name is the name of the network interface. nfo enables negotiated failover. -nfo disables negotiated failover. To enable negotiated failover on the interface e8 of an HA configuration, enter the following command: ifconfig e8 nfo
    Note: The nfo option is persistent across reboots after it is enabled on an interface.
