Dear experts,

Is there a way to copy one port config to other port ? i mean seemthing like "copy port X to port Y".. That way the machine will copy the whole config of port X one by one to port Y.

You could look into smartport macros which allow you to apply a standard configuration across multiple ports -

Another option is to use the interface range command eg.

switch(config)# interface range fa0/1 - 10


then any commands you type in apply to all ports in the range fa0/1 - 10.

Finally there is good old cut and paste at the CLI prompt.

Hi Yosi,

Jon's right. I'm using macro and it's alot faster and more accurate than cut-n-paste.

macro apply $tags

Hope this helps. Please rate when applicable.
