     event syslog pattern "Interface Ethernet0/1, changed state to down"
     action 1.0 mail server "smtp_server.ccnp.iq" to "XXX@YYY.iq" from "R2@YYY.iq" subject "Interface IS DOWN" body "Please try to fix it ASAP"

    3- I got this error "

  2. Hi Thomas,

    Glad to hear you like it :slight_smile: Let’s take a closer look at this config:

    event manager applet SHOW_RUN_NO_INTERFACES
    event cli pattern “show run” sync yes
    action 1.0 cli command “enable”
    action 2.0 cli command “show run | exclude interface”
    action 3.0 puts “$_cli_result”
    action 4.0 set $_exit_status “0”

    Let’s take a look at it line-by-line:

    event cli pattern “show run” sync yes

    We want to match the “show run” command so that’s out pattern. The “sync yes” part means that EEM will run before this command is executed.

    action 1.0 cli command “enable”
    action 2

  3. Hi Rene,

    Is there any way to configure on layer 3 switches an script to shut down ports and enable ports on a schedule basis.

  4. Hello Alfredo

    Yes, it is possible to shutdown and enable specific ports based on time. The following example may shed some light on this:

    When using EEM, you must create two applet timer policies, one to “shutdown” and the other to “no shutdown”. In the following example, the port will be shutdown every day at midnight, and brought back up every day at 8 am.

    event manager applet shutdown_port
    event timer cron cron-entry "0 0 * * *"
    action 1.0 cli command "enable"
    action 2.0 cli command "config t"
    action 3.0 cli command "interface FastEthernet1/0/1"
    action 4.0
