Keep ethernet port down after reload


When we reload/reboot an ADX, the ethernet port we use for the network uplink comes back up before the switch can pass traffic.The challenge is the other router is passing a static route to us as soon as the port link is up. Because the switch cannot pass the traffic due to it still booting, the traffic dies. Any idea on how to keep the port down until the ADX is fully booted?

Re: Keep ethernet port down after reload

You can create a trunk on the link between adx interface and the router interface, this will make sure that router does not make link up untill adx is actually up.
