Why dont you do this to disable the ports-

conf t

int range fa0/1 - 24


and then after the required time, do this-

conf t

int range fa0/1 -24

no shut

This should get you through.

Hope this helps.

Hello Sayed,

I'm really not sure if there are such scripts on switches... anyway, you can use ciscoworks -> netconfig module to configure to enable or disable switchports, by predefining the commands on the server and scheduling it.. By doing this, the ciscoworks server can log onto "n" number of devices and automatically change the configurations.. i think this is the only/best option...

Hope this helps.. all the best.. rate replies if found useful..

Yes Sayed... On the ciscoworks server, you can apply say the following commands:

interface range faste 1/0/1 - 48


and program it for 1:00 AM to trigger it on NETCONFIG and include the switch IP addresses for which these rules will apply...

then u create another rule,

interface range faste 1/0/1 - 48

no shutdown

on the NETCONFIG and do a no shutdown..

Refer to this URL:

or else , get hold of some software guys, who can write shell scripts, to automatically do telnet and change the configs ;)
