Hello,
Is there a method of automatically enabling and disabling a copper port based on a specific day and time for an extreme x460-48p.   In other words, *automatically* enable the port say Wednesday @ 8 am and disable the port the same day @ 10 am? We have the need to do this and are manually dis- and en-abling the port. 
Was wondering if there is some sort of automated method?
The device is an extreme x460-48p running a flavor of the 15 code.

Thank you,
Sarah

That's easily possible - You have to create an UPM-Profile that triggers on a timer. You'll find all the information in the user guide. the relevant chapter is UPM

Take a look at this thread for a great example of something very similar to what you're trying to do:

Hello,
I created a UPM profile to turn on and off a port (thanks for the lead).  Below are the commands that I entered.  The profile to enable the port seems to have worked great however it never disabled the port.  My goal is to enable the port every Thursday @ 10:30 am and disable it 2 hours later (@ 12:30 pm) on the same day.

create upm profile PortOff  
disable port 5:1

create upm profile PortOn  
enable port 5:1

create upm timer PortOff_timer
configure upm timer PortOff_timer profile PortOff
configure upm timer PortOff_timer at 03 10 2016 12 30 00 every 604800

create upm timer PortOn_timer
configure upm timer PortOn_timer profile PortOn
configure upm timer PortOn_timer at 03 10 2016 10 30 00 every 604800

The port enabled as expected on Thursday, but when I checked the port today (Friday), it was still enabled.

Do I have my timing off or syntax issue?

Thanks
Sarah

Hi Sarah,
You may want to open a ticket with GTAC since it has been a few days since anyone has responded.
