SmartNode 1k Ethernet Port fallback enable port redundancy
Article Id #: 335

For Ethernet port redundancy, the SmartNode / SmartWare action script functionality will move the interface binding from one Ethernet port to the other in case a failure on the Master Port appears. For the master port supervision, an additional interface is required. The interface is addressed as unnumbered to avoid any IP-Address conflict.

The action script supervises the supervision interface and as soon as the link goes down on this port, the binding move takes place.

As soon as the Link comes up again on the supervision port, the action script in this example rebinds the main communication interface back to the initial port.

Configuration Example:
