Introduced : BIG-IP_v10.0.0
Set the media types of the specified interface names, conveniently choosing fixed or SFP media automatically. When you set the media type using this method, the system automatically affects the correct media based on whether the interface is a small form factor pluggable (SFP) interface, or for combo ports (see get_dual_media_state method) whether SFP is the preferred port. (When you get the setting you&aposll still need to use the correct method, get_media or get_media_sfp.) You may manually affect the interface settings more directly by using the set_media or set_media_sfp methods.
