Edit Configuration of Ports

 

You can edit the configuration of a port either by using a port profile or manually.

If a profile is already deployed, edit the profile, and then redeploy for the changes to take effect.

When using a port profile to edit ports, you can:

  • assign a port profile or modify the profile assigned to the port

  • modify the VLANs assigned to the port

To edit the configuration of one or more ports:

  1. Select one or more ports and click More > Edit Configuration. Alternatively, right-click the ports and click Edit Configuration.

    The Edit Port(s) page appears.

  2. Do one of the following:

    For Options, select one of the following:

    • To edit the port configuration by using a port profile:

      1. Click Use Port Profile.

        The Port Profile drop down list and an option to select VLAN appears.

      2. Select a port profile that you want to assign to the port from the Port Profile drop down list.
      3. In the VLAN field:
        • If the port is configured as a trunk port in the port profile, assign multiple VLANs by selecting the VLANs in the Available column and clicking the right-arrow to move them to the Selected column.

        • If the port is configured as an access port in the port profile, assign a single VLAN by selecting the VLAN in the Available column and clicking the right-arrow to move it to the Selected column.

    • To edit the port configuration manually:

      1. Click Manually edit port configurations.

        The port parameters such as port mode, link mode, flow control appear.

      2. Edit the parameters by referring to Port Profile Settings.
  3. Click Next.

    Deployment options appear.

  4. (Optional) Select the Do not deploy option if you want to only save the edited configuration in CSO, but not push and commit the configuration to the switch.
  5. For the Type field, do one of the following:
    • Click Run now to save the edited configuration in CSO and commit the edited configuration on the switch.

    • Click Schedule at a later time to schedule a time to commit the edited configuration on the switch.

      If you select the Schedule at later time option, enter the date and time when you want to deploy, in the fields that appear when you select the option.

  6. Click Next.

    A summary of all the port profile parameter appears.

  7. (Optional) Click Edit to revisit the settings and make further changes.
  8. Click OK.

    If you select the Run now option, a job is created to deploy the profile at once; otherwise, the job to deploy is created on the date and at the time that you scheduled.

    During the deployment (that is when the deploy is executing), the Deployment status of the port is set to Pending Deployment, on the Ports tab of the Devices page.

    If the deployment job completes successfully:

    • A message appears on the top of the Ports page indicating that the deployment is successful.

    • Deployment Status of the port is set to Deployed.

    • The Port Profile column displays:

      • the profile name when a port profile is used for editing.

      • Manually Configured when the configuration is manually edited.
