We are running a Cisco 2960x switch. We have multiple PoE enabled devices attached. These devices typically draw 6W. The devices can also be powered by a DC input, at which point they switch to DC power. When running via DC the switch shows that they are typically drawing 0.9W PoE. Is there a way to configure the switch so that if a device is drawing less than 1 or 2 watts that the switch will disable PoE for that port?
After wasting an afternoon found this statement online, "EEM is not supported on the 2960 series. Only EEM-Lite is supported".
I am unable to program applets into my 2960, I am running 15.2 (2) E7.
Also noted in this Cisco thread: https://community.cisco.com/t5/switching/eem-support-on-catalyst-2960-x/td-p/2396901
I am unable to find any documentation on EEM-Lite.
The product code ends with an "-L". That means LAN Base (and not LAN Lite).
EEM is supported. I have a lot of 2960X and I have EEM enabled on each stack.
Then I'm missing something because when I try to initiate an applet I get an invalid input error, see below.
Enter configuration commands, one per line. End with CNTL/Z.
Switch(config)#event manager applet DC-IN-POE-OFF
% Invalid input detected at '^' marker.
