Switchport Macro’s

Here are two macros; one for Trunks and one for Access ports. This ensures consistency across ports and reduces configuration time.

macro name T
default interface $intf
interface $intf
switchport trunk encaps dot
switchport mode trunk
switchport trunk allow vlan $vlan
no shut
[macro global apply T $intf eth0/1 $vlan 10,20,30]

macro name A
default interface $intf
interface $intf
switchport mode access
switchport access vlan $vlan
no shut
[macro global apply A $intf eth1/1 $vlan 5]
