After you configure an active and stand-by egress points in a data center group with a common egress configuration, you can swap the roles of the egress points. The active egress point can become a stand-by egress point and the reverse.


This operation requires the System Administrator role or a role with the VDC Group: Configure VDC Group right published to the organization.


  1. In the top navigation bar, click Networking and then click the Data Center Groups tab.
    The list of data center groups appears.
  2. Click the target data center group.
    The Network Topology view for this data center group opens. The diagram of the current network topology displays the participating VDCs with their network fault domains, the egress points, if configured, and the traffic routes.
  3. Click Swap egress points.
  4. To confirm, click OK.


The diagram of the network topology is updated with the new traffic routes. The traffic to the Internet is now redirected to the new active egress point.
