How to perform interface range commands on 7000, 8000, 8100, M6220, M6348, M8024-K N2000, N3000 and N4000 series switches

Article Summary: This article explains how to configure multiple interfaces at the same time.

To configure multiple interfaces at the same time, you have to go into an interface range command.

Run the following commands to enter a range of interfaces.



For consecutive ports, the following example uses Gigabit Ethernet ports 1-5 on Unit 1

console(config)#interface range gi1/0/1-5

For non-consecutive ports, the following example uses Gigabit Ethernet ports 48 on Unit 1 and 2

console(config)#interface range gi1/0/48,gi2/0/48

Note: Notice that starting after range there are no more spaces in the rest of the command syntax for both examples
Note: To verify the way the ports are defined on your switch, you can run a console#show interfaces status

Below is an example to configure the consecutive ports 1 through 5, as well as 8 and 9.

console(config)#interface range gi1/0/1-5,gi1/0/8,gi1/0/9

Note: You may configure different interface types at the same time, such as a Gigabit Ethernet, and 10-Gigabit Ethernet interface
