Whether 2XG8GE WSIC interface cards of the USG6000 series are Layer 2 or Layer 3 ones

The 2XG8GE WSIC interface card, short for 2XG8GE, provides eight Gigabit RJ45 and two 10-Gigabit SFP+ interfaces, which are all Layer 3 interfaces and support Layer 2/Layer 3 switchover. By default, they work in Layer 3 mode.
Perform as follows for switchover:
[Layer 3 to Layer 2] In the interface view, run the portswitch command to switch from Layer 3 mode to Layer 2 mode. Before switchover, clear all Layer 3 service configurations of the interface.
[Layer 2 to Layer 3] In the interface view, run the undo portswitch command to switch to Layer 3 mode. Before switchover, clear all configurations, excluding default ones, of the interface.
