redundancy force-switchover will force the switch to fail over the supervisor. I am not sure what you are asking about setting the time - do you mean scheduling the failover - failver in 10 mins sort of thing? If so I don't believe you can do that.

Further to the good information by Paul, the failover duration depends on the supervisor and the mode of redundancy that has been configured, it cannot be predetermined:-

Take a moment to read through the following document, it discusses the various redundancy modes of operation and failover duration:-


Command to initate a failover:-

'redundancy force-switchover' or

'reset ' on the active Supervisor.

Hope this helps..
