Configures the active CF to pause the application of configuration to other cards/VMs during bootup until the specified cards are operational (VPC-DI only).

Entering the above command sequence results in the following prompt:
wait cards [ mask bitmask-value | actives active-count ]
no wait cards
Returns this setting to the default behavior where CF does not wait to apply the configuration to other cards.
Specifies a bitmask of specific cards to wait to reach terminal operational state before applying the configuration.
: A bitmask value specifying the specific cards; cards 3 through 7 would be entered as 3-7, cards 4 and 8 is entered as 4,8, and cards 3 through 10, 12 through 14, 16 and 19 would be entered as 3-10,12-14,16,19.
Specifies the number of cards to wait to become active before applying the configuration.
: An integer value from 3 through 48.
Use this command to define the specific cards, or number of cards, which must become active before the CF applies the configuration to the other cards in the system. The pause occurs immediately following local management context creation and ntp/snmp configuration.
The values for the keywords in this command are automatically generated by the system each time a save configuration command is issued.
As a result, the mask and actives keywords described below are concealed commands. These commands should only be used in specific instances where these settings must be manually applied.
In Release 21.3.3-21.5, the command wait card active active-count standby standby-count timeout timeout-value was used to control this Boot Configuration Pause functionality. In Release 21.6 and higher, this command has been deprecated. If this command exists in the configuration file, the system will honor the timeout timeout-value command, and active active-count standby standby-count keywords of the deprecated command.
The following example command instructs the system to wait for cards 2-10 to become active and at least 12 cards become active overall:
wait cards mask 2-10 actives 12
The following example command instructs the system to wait for cards 2-10 to become active or at least 8 cards to become active:
wait cards mask 2-10 actives 8
The following example command instructs the system to wait for at least 8 cards to become active:
wait cards actives 8
