Hi Experts,
What would be best practice when shutting down ports.
I will do next: Create an svi vlan 100 and shut it down(bin bucket vlan), Identify ports not in use then shut them down and put them on vlan 100.
My question is if there is a way that when I need one of these shut down ports to identify the port that is down? I know I can tone the port but is there an easier way to do it?

Please advise
