Static Profiles

Static profiles are so named because they are not triggered by dynamic system events. To trigger a static profile, you must enter a command at the switch prompt or run a script that contains the command to start a static profile. The following guidelines apply to static profiles:
  • Static profiles are not limited to individual ports and can include system-wide configuration changes.

  • Static profiles are not assigned to a port and are not specific to a device or a user.

  • Changes made by static profiles are persistent. They are saved in the switch configuration and are preserved during system reboots.

Static profiles are typically used to establish default switch settings. Using scripts and variables, you can create static profiles that serve as templates for initializing switches or reconfiguring switches to manually respond to network or business events. These templates can simplify complex configuration tasks such as Netlogin.
