PoAP message on Nexus switch

Hi,

The message is caused by the Cisco PowerOn Auto Provisioning process. This is a feature that simplifies upgrading software and installing configuration files on new Cisco Nexus switches. This is not a problem assuming the switch has just been installed and has not yet been configured.

To stop the messages you simply press Y and return at the prompt "%POAP-2-POAP_INFO: Abort Power On Auto Provisioning and continue with normal setup ?(yes/no)[n]:"

Regards
