Hello testimony,

From the Active device, go to Device Management ›› Traffic Groups ›› traffic-group-1

click on "Force to Standby".

There is also a shortcut link, when you click on the "Active" behind the red F5 logo at the top of the page.

Regards

Here,

Login via GUI --> Device Management --> Traffic Groups --> traffic-group-1

Select Force to Standby.

Or when you login to your GUI, on the top left you would see F5 icon with ACTIVE keyword. Clicking on that too directly takes you to the above mentioned steps.
