Is there any way to put the FEX port int the default config mode which will result in removing all commands from the FEX single port.

like we do default interface <interface number> in Cisco IOS based switches.

How can we do the same thing on Cisco Nexus

Someone can correct me if I am wrong, but I haven't seen anything of the sort on my 5k's, so I don't think that option is available in NX-OS.

ditto, haven't seen it on the 5k's.  As far as I know, you have to 'no' every configuration line you want to remove.

but its very surprising how can Cisco forgot to introduce such command in Nexus.

I totally understand. I feel the same way too, but I am pretty sure they had their reasons. I know there is a port profile feature. May be a way to use that to apply a config to the port and then remove the config by removing the port profile from it?

The default interface command works on the 7K.
