Restoring default port name?

Hello!

Recently I enabled Dynamic Port Name on switch, and I noticed, that ports that were previously manually named, were not assigned new dynamic name. So my question is, how to force port to accept new name from DPN or how to restore it to default name?

Also, as second question - when is new port name assigned, when Dynamic Port Name is enabled? Only once, when exiting "configure" after enabling DPN? Or every time the port state changes?

Thanks in advance!

@Piw

 

from command line, do follow:

 

portcfgpersisentdisable port_number

portcfgdeault port_number

portcfgpersistentenable port_number

 

be aware persistent disable command is traffic disruptive

 

now is the port set to default

Hello,

 

To remove previous configured port name manually, you can use the command:

portname x/y -n ""

This will erase previous portname and use the dynamic one instead.

DPN is enable after enable it with configure command.

To remove previous portname setup for previous ports, use command portname x/y -n ""

Automatically the concerned port will be setup with DPN.
