- An interface to force to the backup state. Include the type keyword and the interface identifier (for example, dataplane dp0p1p2). For detailed keywords and arguments that can be specified as interfaces, refer to Supported Dataplane Interfaces.
- A VRRP group within the interface to force to the backup state.
Use this command to force the VRRP master interface to transition to the backup state.
The following example shows how to force the VRRP master interface to the backup state. Notice that before the run command is entered, the state is master, and after the command is entered, it is backup. Also, notice the change in “Master router”.
