Layer 1 Configuration – Physical Ports

Manage Ports

Selecting Manager → Layer 1 → Manage Ports displays the Manage Ports dashboard with a list of any existing Manage Ports settings.

UNUM provides access to specific feature help documentation via the Help Button  icon.


Select the desired Fabric from the left side navigation bar and the dashboard updates showing all Manage Ports configurations from all switches within the Fabric.


Note: If no entries exist a "No Data Exists" message is displayed. You must first configure an entry on a switch. Prerequisite settings and configuration may be required.



The dashboard displays a list of existing Switch Mode entries by Switch. Additional parameters include: port, speed, autoneg, jumbo, enable, routing, loopback, lldp, config, egress-rate-limit, eth-mode, lacp-priority, edge-switch, vxlan-termination, port-mac-address, send-port, loop-vlans, host-enable, crc-check, dscp-map and local-switching.

You sort the list of entries in the dashboard using the up / down  arrows above each of the columns to sort the information as needed.

Note: While reviewing the Port Status dashboard you may see the Port State marked as "down". This may be a result of a setting within Manage Ports and the lack of a physical cable connection to the selected port. Please ensure enable  physical port enable is set to "enable" in the Manage Ports dashboard using the Edit function by selecting the Cog  icon. You must connect a physical cable to the port. Otherwise, the port is marked as "down".
