Disable Ports after a Period of Inactivity on 2960

I posted this question previously and was given a solution of EEM/TCL.  This would work on the 3750's I have, but it doesn't work on the 2960's.  Somehow my previous thread was marked as answered, maybe I wanted to give kudos to the responder.  So here is my original question, and after that is my reply to the user who offered a suggestion, as to why EEM/TCL will not work.

QUESTION

I would like to enable a port, and if there is no activity for a 12 hour period on that port, i would like it to be disabled.I have looked at aging port security, but that I don't see it.  I want to stay away from sticky mac's, its too much overhead.  Can anyone point me in the right direction, aging only clears mac addresses, whether its absolute or inactive.  I want to disable the port, shut it down.  Any insight is greatly appreciated

This looks good.  unfortunately i have catalyst 2960 switches running on ios 12.2(55)SE5  This version of the ios supports eem, but only for the 3750 and 3560 switches, not the 2960 switches.  i am going to try anyways.  thank you very much... 

so i didnt get very far.  based on the link you sent describing tcl and emm, i should be able to run the command 'show event manager environment' but i cannot.  event manager environment does not exist.  

here, on the release notes for this ios is where i found that the 2960 does not support emm but the 3750 and 3560 does  http://www.cisco.com/c/en/us/td/docs/switches/lan/catalyst3750/software/...

2960/G/S does NOT support EEM

2960/G/S does NOT support EEM.   

Only the 2960X/XR can support EEM.

hi Leo,

hi Leo,

Is there any Cisco document to prove that 2960/G/S does not support EEM?

Also is there any alternate ?

Read the Release Notes and the Data Sheets of these models and notice EEM is NEVER mentioned.   

Next, read the IOS version 15.2(4)E Release Notes for 2960X/XR and under "Features" there's mention of 

  • (LAN Base for Catalyst 2960-X switches; IP Lite for Catalyst 2960-XR switches) Support for Embedded Event Manager (EEM).

2960/G/S will never be able to load IOS version 15.2(4)E. 

Also is there any alternate ?

Either upgrade to a 2960X/XR or Catalyst 3560/3750 series family of switches (IP Base) or 3650/3850. 

Another option is to use SNMP polling.
