I'm curiouse if it is possible to use a macro on another switch. Say switch A has a macro called unused ports. If i hooked up switch B and networked it so switch A can talk to B. Can I use the macro from switch A to run on switch B without making the macro on Switch B? Am I jsut greedy here?

Probably not if in fact you are referring to EEM scripts. When you say "macro" what are you talking about? Abut your example, are you really trying to hsve a single box keep track of unused ports on more than one box? If so, that IS possible.

Good luck,
Steve

If you are referring to port macros, then no.  They have to be in the running config of the switch.

@Steve

macros is a correct command on almost any cisco device. heres an example:

SwitchA has a macro setup that when applied will put a range of ports all in vlan 100 with spanning tree on with a description Users. Instead of me having to enter in all the coimmands per port I just apply one which is "macro apply users". I understand I can just copy and paste but I'm doing this for more of a management reason. What I'm wanting is if SwitchA has this macro and I'm logged into SwitchB I want to be able to call that macro so I can run it on SwitchB without having to create the macro on SwitchB manually.

@eeRoot

I kind of figured that, but was hoping someone knew something I didn't if you don't mind I'm going to leave this post up for a little longer to see if anyone might have an idea we didn't think of :) But in the end you just might be right lol..
