Configuring the management interface speed

By default, the speed of the interface is set to autoconfiguration, which means the interface speed is optimized dynamically depending on load and other factors. You can override the default with a fixed speed value of 10 Mbps full duplex or 100 Mbps full duplex.

  1. In privileged EXEC mode, issue the configure terminal command to enter global configuration mode.
    switch# configure terminal
    Entering configuration mode terminal
  2. Enter the interface management command followed by rbridge-id/0 .

    This command places you in the management interface subconfiguration mode.

    switch(config)# interface management 1/0
    switch(config-Management-1/0)# 
  3. Enter the speed command with the selected speed parameter. The valid values are 10, 100, and auto.
    switch(config-Management-1/0)# speed auto
  4. Enter the do show interface management command followed by rbridge-id/0 to display the new settings.
    switch(config-Management-1/0)# do show interface management 1/0
    interface Management 1/0
    ip address 10.24.81.65/20
    ip route 0.0.0.0/0 10.24.80.1
    ipv6 ipv6-address [ ]
    ipv6 ipv6-gateways [fe80::21b:edff:fe0f:bc00 fe80::21b:edff:fe0c:c200]
    line-speed actual "1000baseT, Duplex: Full"
    line-speed configured Auto
  5. Save the configuration changes by using the copy running-config startup-config command.
    switch(config-Management-1/0)# do copy running-config startup-config
