Switch-port profiles

A port profile determines the enabled front-panel ports and supported breakout modes on Ethernet and unified ports. Change the port profile on a switch to customize uplink and unified port operation, and the availability of front-panel data ports.

To change the port profile at the next reboot, enter the switch-port-profile command with the desired profile, save it to the startup configuration, and reload the switch.

  1. Configure a platform-specific port profile in CONFIGURATION mode. For a standalone switch, enter 1/1 for node/unit.
                                        node/unit profile
  2. Save the port profile change to the startup configuration in EXEC mode.
    write memory
  3. Reload the switch in EXEC mode.
The switch reboots with the new port configuration and resets the system defaults, except for the switch-port profile and these configured settings:
  • Management interface 1/1/1 configuration
  • Management IPv4/IPv6 static routes
  • System hostname
  • Unified Forwarding Table (UFT) mode
  • ECMP maximum paths
You must manually reconfigure other settings on a switch after you apply a new port profile and reload the switch.
  • NOTE: After you change the switch-port profile, do not immediately back up and restore the startup file without entering write memory and reloading the switch. Otherwise, the new profile does not take effect.

Configure port profile

OS10(config)# switch-port-profile 1/1 profile-6 
                              OS10(config)# exit
                              OS10# write memory
                              OS10# reload

Verify port profile

OS10(config)# show switch-port-profile 1/1
                              |  Node/Unit  |  Current    |  Next-boot  | Default   |
                              |     1/1     |  profile-2  |  profile-2  | profile-1 |
