PoE pre-standard detection disabled by default

Starting with this version, the factory default setting for power over Ethernet (PoE) pre-standard detection is disable for both managed and standalone FortiSwitch units.

Depending on the FortiSwitch model, you can manually change the poe-pre-standard-detection setting on the global level or on the port level.

Note

PoE pre-standard detection is a global setting for the following FortiSwitch models: FSR-112D-POE, FS-548DFPOE, FS-524D-FPOE, FS-108D-POE, FS-224D-POE, FS-108E-POE, FS-108E-FPOE, FS-124E-POE, and FS-124EFPOE. For the other FortiSwitch PoE models, PoE pre-standard detection is set on each port.

On the global level, set poe-pre-standard-detection with the following commands:

config switch-controller managed-switch
    edit <FortiSwitch_serial_number>
        set poe-pre-standard-detection {enable | disable}
    next
end

On the port level, set poe-pre-standard-detection with the following commands:

config switch-controller managed-switch
    edit <FortiSwitch_serial_number>
        config ports
            edit <port_name>
                set poe-pre-standard-detection {enable | disable}
            next
        end
    next
end

When you upgrade FortiOS, the setting of poe-pre-standard-detection stays the same. When you downgrade from FortiOS 6.4 to FortiOS 6.2, the setting of poe-pre-standard-detection stays the same. The setting of poe-pre-standard-detection might change during a downgrade from FortiOS 7.0 to FortiOS 6.4.
