To implement direct standby operation, you must disable the normal bypass relay function of a powered-down PacketShaper. In a typical installation, if a unit fails or loses power, relays close to allow user traffic to pass unhindered between the two ports. As a component of a redundant configuration, however, a powered-down PacketShaper needs to be a point of failure in the network. Therefore, disabling the bypass functionality ensures that an out-of-service, failed, or powered-down unit does not pass traffic.
For instructions on disabling bypass, see the appropriate section for your model:
