Hey! So currently part my tasks at my job is to shutdown ports on switches on my network that have been down for 15 days. My team gets a spreadsheet once a week that lists of ports that have been down for 15 days and lists their Switchname, Port, Port downtime, and Description. I then log into each one and manually shut down each ports and change the description to Available.... I have to assume there has to be a way to automate this right?? Seems way too manual. Is there a way to configure switches to automatically shut the port after a certain amount of down time? Or a way I could use the spreadsheet info I currently get and run a script against that? If anyone has any ideas or just point me in the direction I might be able to figure this out on my own with a little research, I'm all ears! Thanks in advance! Would be a HUGE help.
