disable inline-power

disable inline-power


Shuts down PoE power currently provided on all ports on all slots.

Syntax Description

This command has no arguments or variables.



Usage Guidelines

You can control whether inline power is provided to the system by using the disable inline-power command and the enable inline power command. Using the disable inline-power command shuts down inline power currently provided on the entire switch or to specified ports and slots. Disabling inline power to a switch, port, or slot immediately removes power to any connected PDs. By default, inline power provided to all ports is enabled.



Disabling inline power using the disable inline-power command does not affect the data traffic traversing the port. And, disabling the port using the disable port command does not affect the inline power supplied to the port.

On modular switches, disabling inline power does not allow PoE power reserved for slots to be allocated to other slots that may be needing more power to become operational. However, when you issue the command disable slot on a slot holding a PoE module, the inline power is also disabled and that slot is totally offline.



Inline power cannot be delivered to connected PDs unless the Summit family switch or BlackDiamond 8800 chassis and module are powered on.
