    I have an EX4500 with an interface with nothing plugged into it. I go into J-web, delete out this section, and click commit

     

    xe-0/0/1 {
       description "vSphere15 Management";
       mtu 9216;
       unit 0 {
          family ethernet-switching {
             port-mode access;
             vlan {
                members Hosts;
             }
          }
       }
    }

     

    I then get this error message

    There were error(s) delivering the configuration.

    Error(s):
    'interface'

    1) XSTP : Interface xe-0/0/1.0 is not enabled for Ethernet Switching
    2) XSTP : Interface xe-0/0/1.0 is not enabled for Ethernet Switching
    3) configuration check-out failed

     

    Why can't I delete this interface?

    Seems that you have configured the xe-0/0/1 in rstp or vstp..
    Since xstp is not able to find the interface post deleting, you seem to be encountering the mentioned error..

    you may delete the interface from rstp or vstp, then try deleting from interface hierarchy..

    That was it, once I removed it from the RSTP section, I deleted the interface

    Thanks
