Extreme Switch - How to configure UPM

The ExtremeXOS Universal Port framework enables the switch to take actions based on events. Leveraging the ExtremeXOS CLI scripting capability, Universal Port activates profiles that enables automatic switch configuration in response to special events such as:
  • User login and logoff
  • Device connection to or disconnection from a port
  • Time of day
  • Event Management System (EMS) event messages

The primary component of the Universal Port feature is the profile, which is a special form of command script that runs when triggered by the events mentioned above.
Profiles execute commands and use variables as do the scripts described in Using CLI Scripting (Chapter 8 in the ExtremeXOS Concepts Guide). The primary difference is that a profile can be executed manually or automatically in response to switch events.
