Does anyone know of an equivalent "default interface X" comand for the Cisco Nexus 5000 platform?

switch# conf t  
switch#(config)# default interface x  

-> dead thread here about the topic: https://supportforums.cisco.com/discussion/10743451/nexus-5k-w413-default-interface

It actually depends on the NX-OS version running on the switch (and hence the switch model). Starting with version 6.0(2)N2(1), the default interface command has been added to the nexus world. Compare the release notes of this version.

As far as I know, previous versions do not support this or any similar command.

However you won't be able to run NX-OS 6 or later on the 5010 or 5020 platform, it requires the 55xx platform.
