Enable Admin Status for POE via CLI command
I did some searching here and google, but the any search query with enable, poe, command, cli, admin, etc. gets me a lot of nothing. I have an 3510 PWR+ switch that I use at home for some APs and network security cams. What I am trying to do, is use a telnet client, or SSH in the future, to shutdown and disable poe with the use of a shortcut on my android phone, and then turn on the port and enable poe with the use of another shortcut on the same phone. I have the commands in CLI for shutting down the port and and poe fine (thought just shutting down poe would suffice) but I cannot figure out for the life of me how to turn those two settings on.

I have been doing it in EDM, but I'd like to be able to do them via CLI. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Also if I can add where I can set the password for EDM? Same thing, I've spent hours searching and I all get is instructions and manuals where it gives you what the generic one is, and one that gives instruction on where to find the setting, config-->security-->control path-->general-->web, but those options do not exist in my version. I'm not using RADIUS at home.

The actual documentation for that switch is at http://support.avaya.com/css/P8/documents/100178985.

For stopping PoE on that switch you'll first have to enter the configuration mode on your interface then issue the poe-shutdown command:

config terminal
interface fastethernet XX
poe poe-shutdown

Replace "poe poe-shutdown" with "no poe-shutdown" to reactivate PoE.

I love you!!! I literally love you!!! I was monkeying around the EDM and was shutting down some ports when I stupidly shutdown the port to the router, essentially severing EDM, telnet, SSH, etc contact to the switch. Console is only CLI, so I figured to check here and see if anyone replied....and I'm so glad someone did. I didn't want to reset to factory defaults....again.

So just to be clear, the "no" command can be used for any other command to do the opposite? or just some?

That's the standard for most CLIs to negate a command. There are some things you can't do a no on for the Avaya switches but in most cases that'll let you negate any commands. Think of it as a way to delete configuration options, if you do a 'show run' on an Avaya switch it'll show you a list of all of the config options that differ from the defaults. So if you do a shutdown on a port you should see it in show run, and when you do 'no shutdown' it'll "delete" that config option.

Happy I could help.

I second what zakabog said. You can also think of the "no" directive as a way to return to the default setting for a feature.
