Configure HP Procurve 2824 (J4903A)

We have a HP Procurve 2824 switch at both Telehouse and XO. We have the manual available.

Start by resetting to factory defaults.

Do that by poking a staple in both the reset and clear buttons and then releasing the reset button and keeping the clear button pressed. That may leave the switch in a state with all lights on. If so try unplugging and plugging it back in.

Next, try to access it via the serial console at 2400 baud.

  • Set the system contact, password, and IP configuration
    • Type: setup
    • Set system contact to:
    • Enter Manager password - cannot be more than 16 characters!
  • Set the serial console
    # configure
    # console baud-rate 115200
    Command will take effect after saving configuration and reboot.
    # write mem
    # boot

After it restarts, you should re-connect via the new serial console settings

  • I
  • Set the hostname
    hostname cafiero
