Even though this is a bit late, but since this result popped up in my Google search, the way to do this is in Arista EOS is using (this also works for setting default MTU):

interface defaults
  • Unfortunately this command does not exist on EOS 4.25.1F. Only "interface defaults" is available: core01(config)#interface defaults ? <cr> Commented Jul 15, 2021 at 3:46
  • @ViníciusFerrão, The configuration option must be split into three lines: interface defaults<Enter>ethernet<Enter>shutdown Commented Apr 14, 2022 at 14:48
