I have a customer with a SG300-28MP and they want to be able to shut down or enable wi-fi when ever. Since I have AMX touch panels mounted in various locations I want to give them the ability via the touch screens to enable or disable or even select on/off times by enabling/disabling the POE on the wi-fi trunk ports (direct connect to APs only).
should I just use "shutdown/no shutdown" or "power inline never/power inline auto" commands? What's the difference as this application is concerned?
when I use the command "power inline [auto | never]" I get the following from the switch:
Hi Vini, there is no difference in your application. If you have a POE device connected to a port and you shut down the POE, there won't be any link state since the device has no power. Conversely, shutting down the port shuts down the port.
There isn't really a difference at all except the fact that if someone moves a connection of a POE device while the port is shut down it won't come back up until the port is no longer shut down.

Does shutdown also terminate power or just the link state. I'd prefer to remove power to the radios and unfortunately I have no POE switch on hand to test and the one is question is remote. A radio with power and no link just makes everyone think the wi-fi is active and should be working when in fact it doesn't.
