Clear all settings on a single interface?


Does anyone know if it's possible to clear all settings on a Cisco 3750 on a single interface with one command?


Clear all settings on a single interface?


default interface  fx/x  should do the trick.

Yes, as what Alain has mentioned the command "default interface " should set the interface to how the way it is.  You can also use "default interface RANGE ".  The "default interface" command can triggered at Global Configuration mode.

BTW, the default interface command often works on other Cisco network devices too.

Whether a defaulted interface will be in shutdown or not, appears to vary, so as I never recall device specifics, I'll follow up the default command with an interface command to either shut or no shut the interface (to make sure it's as I desire).

Also BTW, on 6500s, some interface commands program the ASIC, i.e. they impact other ports.  Defaulting an interface will remove those commands from other interface within the same ASIC port group.

So the moral of the story, be careful when using the default interface command.
