  • 1.  Disable AUX port on HPE 5800

    Posted Nov 02, 2021 07:37 AM


    As per auditing requirement, it is recommended to disable AUX port on our HPE 5800 switches. 

    1. How do I disable the aux port?

    2. Can I access the switch using console after disabling aux port?

    Please advise. Is Aux and Console port same?

    Hi Ajin!

    Not sure why my answer has not been migrated from HPE Communities, but for sake of clarity, I will re-post it here:

    The AUX port in 5800 is the only console port available. It is not used for 'remote administration', like additional AUX port in Cisco. Therefore you CANNOT disable aux0 port in 5800. I know the 'aux' term confuses people, maybe that's why in Comware 7 that port is named 'con0'
