All Enterasys Power over Ethernet (PoE) capable switches. 

The Auto / IEEE are Enterasys naming conventions for the inline power detection mode (PowerDsine detection methods). 

Option IEEE: Only IEEE 802.3af detection method is used. This means that only PoE devices which are compliant with IEEE 802.3af standard will be detected. 

Option AUTO: Supports both IEEE802.3af and PowerDsine pre-standard detection methods. First IEEE detection will run and if fails it will look for a pre-standard device as well. So this option will support both pre-standard and IEEE 802.3af standard based PoE devices like IP phones etc. 

Commands to set inline power detection mode on PoE modules:
C2(su)->set inlinepower detectionmode ?
auto     Set inline power detection mode to auto.
ieee     Set inline power detection mode to ieee. 

set inlinepower detectionmode auto
set inlinepower detectionmode ieee
