Disable an Interface

You can disable and re-enable ports and LAGs.

Disabling a port might be useful for troubleshooting or if you want to force a failover to another port or provider (for example, if you are experiencing latency issues).

You are still billed for disabled ports.

To disable a port, click the port to open its side panel and then select Actions > Disable.

When you are ready to re-enable the port, select Actions > Enable.

Disabling LAG interfaces

To disable a LAG, click the LAG to open its side panel and then select Actions > Disable.

When you disable a LAG, you disable the logical bundled interface but its member ports are unaffected and remain enabled.

PacketFabric LAGs run in active mode, which means that disabling the LAG terminates the LACP session that has been established with your device.
