You disable a port to block traffic through the port. When you disable a port, the Admin status and Link status of the port are changed to Down.
You can disable one or more ports at the same time.
To disable one or more ports:
- Select the ports and click More > Disable Port(s). Alternatively, right-click the port and click Disable Port(s)
A job to disable the ports is initiated.
After a port is disabled, the Admin and Link statuses for the port are set to Down.
The device is monitored once every five minutes. Therefore, it takes upto five minutes for the change in the Admin Status and Link Status to reflect on the GUI.
