Can S series switches be configured not to take any action after a loop is detected

Huawei S series (except the S1700) and E series switches performs the configured default action after detecting a loop, that is, shutting down interfaces.
The action can be changed but cannot be disabled. When the action is changed to trap, the switches only report traps and do not take any other action after detecting a loop.
Command used to configure the action performed on an interface after LDT detects a loop: loop-detection mode { port-trap | port-blocking | port-nolearning | port-shutdown | port-quitvlan }

Command used to configure the action performed on an interface after LBDT detects a loop: loopback-detect action { block | nolearn | shutdown | trap | quitvlan }

Note: For S series switches, the port-quitvlan and quitvlan actions are supported in V200R002 and later versions.
