I am converting links from core to closet switch from layer2 to layer 3. I want to be able to do this remotely but when I configure the far end with the "no switchport" command I loose connection to the switch. I know that I can make a copy of the entire config and copy it to running-confg as a work around but thought it would be simpler to just affect one interface of this huge config. The two commands I would like to enter are:
Probably the only way you could do this is to get a copy of your current config and put it in a text editor , make your changes to the config in there , put it on a tftp server then download it into startup config and then reload the switch during off hours .
I agree to glen´s suggestion except a "copy startup-config running-config" would do without reload (maybe even during normal operation). You still will probably experience a brief outage until routing is up and running (setting up adjacencies?).
Thanks for the replies. Cut and paste did not work, I got the first command over but not the second one. Copying the config was a little hairy too, the implied commands like "no switchport" don't happen and the vlan database sometimes gets confused. I was thinking about a fiber to rs232 converter, I could use an extra fiber pair to reach a terminal server in the data center and remotely connect to the console.

I am going to design and build an LAN network under a tunnel underground with long distance between the switches.
