Would it be possible to report Port Status if it is err-disabled? Currently only UP/DOWN for Admin Status and Status are shown. Perhaps Status could be UP/DOWN/ERR.

GigabitEthernet1/0/13 is down, line protocol is down (err-disabled). On this, it would also be awesome if we could then shut/unshut the port to re-enable it.

Port control and perhaps even interface Vlan assignment would be a very useful feature!

It seems that the err-disabled state comes from either portAdditionalOperStatus ( or cErrDisableIfStatusTable ( from Cisco extensions.

I will check if we can query these OIDs and display the additional information where available in the State column.

We have just added the getting of the err-disable status from cErrDisableIfStatusTable. It should now display additional information under the Status column.

There was a bit of guesswork in the implementation as we don't have a switch supporting CISCO-ERR-DISABLE-MIB for testing, so please let me know how the new builds work for you.

Regarding the actual control features to bring a port up or down, at the moment the Port Mapper is more of a "read-only" tool. It reads and displays your device configuration, but it does not change anything. As far as I understand, most network admins manage their switches from a CLI shell, so you can launch a terminal and connect directly to a switch from the Port Mapper. Then simply enter the necessary commands.
