I need to reset or default an interface on an Aruba switch. This may be the same for HP procurve switches, but I am not sure. On Cisco, the command would be default interface in global config mode. Is there an equivalent command for Aruba OS?

  • While in the interface configuration, is there a default command? Ex.: interface GigabitEthernet1/0/1 - [HP-GigabitEthernet1/0/1]default - This command will restore the default settings. Continue? [Y/N]:y There's also an undo command, where you can put undo in front of almost any command, just like no.

  • There's no default command in interface config or global config that I can see.

There doesn't seem to be a simple command to reset an interface to default.

If it's any help you can quickly display the current config by running show config interface n - saves you from searching for the somewhat scattered relevant lines in the config file.


ArubaOS version 7.4

When working with Aruba Mobility Switches, there would be few instances where a port has to be bought to its default config state, so the new profiles can be applied again. Removing each associated profile would take time and gives a chance of configuration error. This one command suggested below would help us greatly:

Reset to default config with a single command:

(config) #no interface gigabitethernet 0/0/10
  • This does not appear to be working the same way for AOS 16.04.0009. "no interface ethernet [port number]" lists about 30 commands, but by itself is incomplete.

  • @Yanzzee i see i'm on version 7.4 so that might be a problem.
