How to configure PoE power-on and power-off management on S series switches

A switch supports automatic and manual power-on and power-off modes.
Run the poe power-management { auto | manual } slot slot-id command (the slot slot-id parameter is optional for fixed switches) to configure the PoE power management mode. The auto parameter indicates the automatic power management mode, and the manual parameter indicates the manual power management mode.
By default, a switch uses the automatic power management mode. You cannot configure the power management mode on the PoE switch S5720-16X-PWH-LI-AC.


In automatic mode, run the poe priority { critical | high | low } command in the interface view to set the power supply priority of a PoE interface. The priorities in descending order are critical, high, and low. By default, the power supply priority of an interface is low. When the available power is insufficient, the device provides power first for the PDs connected to interfaces with higher power supply priorities.
In manual mode, run the poe { power-off | power-on } interface interface-type interface-number command in the system view to manually power on or power off the PD connected to an interface. The power-off parameter indicates that the PD connected to an interface is powered off, and the power-on parameter indicates that the PD connected to an interface is powered on.
