Is portdisable persistent across switch reboot/firmware upgrade?

Hi All,

This is something a little bit stupid, but i'm in doubt and need to make sure when i issue "portdisable" command it keeps a port disabled after a firmware upgrade or even switch reboot.

Thanks in advance!

Hi, you will need to use the portcfgpersistentdisable. here the description of the command

Description Use this command to persistently disable a port, or use this command without operands to display

the persistently disabled status of all ports on the switch.

Persistently disabled ports remain disabled across power cycles, switch reboots, and switch

enables.

This is nothing to do with FOS upgrade, it will be enabled after reboot. So use it only when you need it like for troubleshooting.No question is stupid question. all the questions are invited in this forum.

Beaware to disable any ISL ports, it will disable the path.

If the port was online before being disabled, a state  tran-
     sition  will  be indicated in the following ways: RSCN, SNMP
     trap, Web pop-up window.
