could you please anyone guide how to identify the free/unused ports in the given node?
does the command:
apic1# fabric 1201 show interface status
issued from an Apic show you what you want?
or for a bit of refinement:
fabric 1201 show interface status | grep notconnect
fabric 1201 show interface status | grep sfpabsent
Don't forget to mark answers as correct if it solves your problem. This helps others find the correct answer if they search for the same problem
Thank you so much for the response. Basically I need to find out the un-allocated ports within interface. Could you please help on that?
You can query the l1PhysIf-MO with usage=discovery:
Or via moquery:
moquery -c l1PhysIf -f 'l1.PhysIf.usage=="discovery"' | grep dn | sort
