PS 12000 doesn’t have physical jumpers to control the state of the bypass relays. In older PacketShaper platforms, you can add/remove the jumpers to set the relays to close/open state during bypass. Instead of physically removing jumpers to control the functionality of normal bypass relays, you can do this via CLI commands:
setup bypass [[open|close] [<device>|all]] | show
For example, to disable bypass on all interface pairs so that traffic does not flow through when the PacketShaper 12000 is powered down, use the following CLI command:
setup bypass open all
If you want the traffic to flow through when the PacketShaper is down, then you can set the bypass to close; this is the default.
Note: You also have to use the proper mix of straight or crossover cables and speed/duplex settings such that the devices connected to the PacketShaper can communicate when the unit is down.
Also note that the setup bypass setting is not a shareable attribute and cannot be configured in PolicyCenter.
