Does anyone use smartports? They look like a great idea. When I do searches for smartports all I find is people saying how to configure them, but no opinions as to it they use them or not. Please let me know what your thoughts are on this feature.
I think it could be a good idea if you have a few standard configurations that could be applied to interfaces. Like the interface could be used as an en-host port, a voice port or a server port - and if you want to enable e.g staff to change the 'function' of one of these ports with an easy one-liner; but it could also be work to have the macro available on every switch where they are needed - on the other hand they can be deployed with a net-config job and verified with baseline templates; so there are several pro's and con'sdepending on the kind of network, the number of changes and who is doing a change - which should be all considered before introducing them.
BTW, I only know of one customer who used it in the past...
