enable inline-power slot

enable inline-power slot slot


Enables PoE power to the specified slot on modular switches.

Syntax Description

slot Enables inline power to specified slot.



Usage Guidelines

Disabling inline power to a slot immediately removes power to any connected PDs. By default, inline power provided to all slots is enabled.

To deliver inline power to slots, you must reserve power for that slot using the configure inline-power budget command. By default, each PoE module has 50 W of power reserved for inline power.



If your chassis has an inline power module and there is not enough power to supply a slot, that slot will not be powered on; the slot will not function in data-only mode without enough power for inline power.

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

On a stack, if you do not specify a slot number, the command operates on all active nodes. This command operates only on nodes in the active topology.


The following command makes inline power available to slot 3:

enable inline-power slot 3


This command was first available in ExtremeXOS 11.1.

Platform Availability

This command is available on the BlackDiamond 8000 series modules listed in Extreme Networks PoE Devices. It is available on SummitStack when the stack contains Summit family switches listed in Extreme Networks PoE Devices.
