Installation precautions
Follow these precautions when installing the switch.
WARNINGS
■
When you mount PS1810-8G Switch under HP ProLiant MicroServer
Gen8s, do not stack more than two servers on top of the switch.
■
Before you mount the PS1810-24G Switch in a rack or cabinet, ensure the
rack or cabinet is adequately secured to prevent it from becoming unstable
and falling over.
Devices installed in a rack or cabinet must be mounted as low as possible,
with the heaviest devices at the bottom and progressively lighter devices
installed at the top.
Cautions
■
When you mount the switch on the wall, ensure that the network ports are
facing up or down to meet national and international safety requirements.
The side vents cannot be placed facing up or down.
■
When installing the switch, ensure that the AC outlet is located near the switch
and is easily accessible in case the switch must be powered off.
■
Ensure that the AC power source circuits are properly grounded.
■
Use only the AC/DC power adapter and power cord (if applicable), supplied
with the switch. Use of other adapters or power cords, including those that came
with other HP Networking products, might result in damage to the equipment.
For those switches that use a power cord, if your installation requires a different
power cord than the one supplied with the switch, be sure to use a power chord
that has the symbol of the safety agency that defines the regulations for power
cords in your country. The mark is your assurance that the power cord can be
used safely with the switch.
■
Ensure the switch does not overload the power circuits, wiring, and over-current
protection. To determine the possibility of overloading the supply circuits, add
together the ampere ratings of all the devices installed on the same circuit as
the switch and compare the total with the rating limit for the circuit. The
maximum ampere ratings are usually indicated on the devices near the AC
power connectors.
■
Do not install the switch in an environment where the operating ambient
temperature might exceed 40C (104 F).
■
Ensure the air flow around the sides of the switch is not restricted.

under or on top of a horizontal surface. The PS1810-24G Switch can be mounted
in a 19-inch Telco rack; in an equipment cabinet, on a wall or; under or on top
of a horizontal surface.
3.
Connect the network devices (page 2-14). Using the appropriate network
cables, connect the network devices to the switch ports.
4.
Optional: Install the SFP transceivers for the PS1810-24G Switch (page 214). The PS1810-24G Switch has two slots for installing SFP transceivers.
Depending on where you install the switch, it might be easier to install the SFPs
first. SFPs can be hot swapped - you can install or remove while the switch is
powered on.
5.
Connect the switch to the AC power source. Once the switch is mounted and
connected to the network devices, plug it into the main power source.
At this point, your switch is fully installed. See the rest of this chapter if you need
detailed information about any of these installation steps.

Installation procedure
4. Power on the switch and verify that self-test completes
normally
The PS1810 Switches do not have power switches. They are powered on by
connecting them to an AC power source. For safety reasons, the power outlet must
be located near the switch installation.
When the switch is powered on, it performs a diagnostic self test. The self test takes
approximately 45 seconds to complete.

2.
Check the LEDs on the switch as described below.
Port Link/Act and
Speed LEDs
Power, Fault,
Locator LEDs
Self Test LED Behavior:
During the self test:
•
Initially, the Power, Fault, Locator, and all port LEDs turn on.
•
After several seconds, the Power, Fault and Locator LEDs remain on, and
the port LEDs turn off. Then, each port Link LED is sequentially turned on,
and then turned off.
•
The Fault and Locator LEDs turn off when the self test completes.
When the self test completes successfully:
•
The Power LED remains on.
•
The Fault, and Locator LEDs stay off.
•
The port LEDs on the front of the switch go into their normal operational
mode:
– If the ports are connected to active network devices, the Link/Act LEDs
stay on or blink to indicate port activity. The Spd LEDs turn on for 1000
Mb/s links, blink for 100 Mb/s links, or remains off for 10 Mb/s links.
– If the ports are not connected to active network devices, the Link/Act
and Spd LEDs remains off.
If the LED display is different than what is described above, the self test has not
completed correctly. For diagnostic help, see Chapter 4, "Troubleshooting".

Installing the switch
Installation procedure
SFP installation notes
Caution
Use only supported genuine HP SFPs with your switch. Non-HP SFPs are not
supported, and their use might result in product malfunction. If you require additional
HP SFPs, contact your HP Sales and Service Office or authorized dealer. For
information about supported SFPs and mini-GBICs, see “Network ports” on
page 1-3.
Ensure that the network cable is NOT connected when you install or remove an SFP.
WARNING
The HP SFPs are Class 1 laser devices. Avoid direct eye exposure to Hot
Swapping SFP transceivers. Supported SFP transceivers that you can install in
your HP switch can be “hot swapped” – removed and installed while the switch
is receiving power. Disconnect the network cables from the SFP transceivers
before hot-swapping them, though.
■
SFP port configuration considerations when changing SFP type. When you
replace an SFP transceiver with another of a different type, the switch might
retain selected port-specific configuration settings that were configured for the
replaced unit. Be sure to validate or reconfigure port settings as required.
■
SFP connections to devices with fixed speed/duplex configurations.
When you connect a device to your switch port that contains an SFP
transceiver, the speed and duplex settings of the switch port and the
connected device must match; otherwise, the device might not link properly.
For some older network devices, including some older HP devices, the
default speed/duplex settings might be predefined (for example, to 1000 Mb/
s/Full Duplex), or otherwise set differently from the default configuration of
your switch port. Because of these default speed/duplex considerations,
make sure that devices connected to your SFP ports are properly configured.
At a minimum, make sure the configurations match.
■
Environmental limitations. If you are using SFPs with the switch, make
sure that the operating temperature range at the switch installation site does
not exceed the range allowed for the SFP.
Installing the SFPs
Remove the fiber-optic protective cover and retain it for later use. Hold the SFP by
its sides and gently insert it into either of the slots on the switch until the SFP clicks
into place.
2-18
Installing the switch
Installation procedure
Removing the SFPs
Note
You should disconnect the network cable from the SFP before removing it from
the switch.
Depending on when you purchased your HP SFP, it may have either of three different
release mechanisms: a plastic tab on the bottom of the SFP, a plastic collar around
the SFP, or a wire bail.
■
To remove the SFPs that have the plastic tab or plastic collar, push the tab or
collar toward the switch until you see the SFP release from the switch (you can
see it move outward slightly), and then pull it from the slot.
■
To remove the SFPs that have the wire bail, lower the bail until it is approximately
horizontal, and then using the bail, pull the SFP from the slot.
After removing the SFP, replace the fiber-optic protective cover.
Connections to HP ProLiant Gen8 Servers
Connect network devices, such as an HP ProLiant MicroServer Gen8 to any of the
PS1810 Switch’s RJ-45 ports using Class 5E or better Ethernet cables.
Note
Any of the switch’s network ports can be used for the following connections. You do
not have to use the specific ports shown in the illustrations.
As shown in the following illustrations, for connection to an HP ProLiant
MicroServer Gen8, it is recommended that you make the following connections:
■
■
➊ to ➋ – to provide internet access for the switch and server, connect any of
the switch ports(1 - 8) to your ISP connection, or to a router that is connected to
the internet.
➌ to ➍ – for data communication between the switch and the server, connect
a network cable between any of the available switch ports and either one of the
server’s Ethernet ports. Connection to server ethernet port 2 is shown.
■
➎ to ➏ – to be able to discover and monitor the health status of HP servers
from the switch, connect a network cable between any of the available switch
ports and the server’s iLO port.
Note
It is also possible to use a single cable between the switch and server for data and
iLO communications, but this requires that you connect to server Ethernet port 1, and
requires changes to the server configuration to cause the server Ethernet 1 port to be
“shared” for data and iLO communications. For more information on shared iLO,
see the server documentation.

Configuring the HP PS1810 switch
Initial configuration
The HP PS1810 Switches can be managed through a web interface that you can access
from any PC or workstation connected to the switch.
To access the web interface, you must have the switch’s Internet Protocol (IP) address.
In the factory default configuration, the IP address is automatically acquired from a
Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) service that is available on your
network or from your Internet Service Provider (ISP). Most routers provide this
service. The DHCP service automatically provides a network IP address
configuration to devices that request it, such as the HP PS1810 Switches.
Many features are configurable on the HP PS1810 Switches. HP recommends that
at minimum, you configure a management password for switch security. Follow these
procedures to access the switch’s web interface to perform the switch configuration:
1.
Place the switch close to the PC that you will use for configuration. It helps if
you can see the front panel of the switch while working from your PC.
2.
Connect power to the switch, and then start your PC (if it is not already running)
and wait until the switch and PC have finished their start-up sequences.
3.
Connect the PC to any port on the switch using a standard Ethernet LAN cable.
Verify that there is a link between the switch and PC by checking the LEDs for
the network port that you are using (For more information on LEDs, see “LEDs”
on page 1-4).
4.
If the switch has access to a DHCP service, it automatically acquires an IP
address. Determine the IP address of the switch by examining the client IP
address table on your router (see the router documentation for how to get this
information), or talk to your ISP representative to get the IP address of the switch.
If DHCP service is not available in your network, or for some reason the switch
does not acquire an IP address from the service, the switch defaults to IP address
192.168.2.10 after 120 seconds of automatically attempting to acquire an IP
address.
3-1
Configuring the HP PS1810 switch
Initial configuration
Alternatively, if you cannot determine the switch’s IP address, you can force it
to use the 192.168.2.10 address by first disconnecting the switch from any router
or internet connection and then unplugging and reconnecting power to it.
Note
To communicate with the switch using the 192.168.2.10 address, see the section
“Managing the switch via the 192.168.2.10 address” on page 3-3” before
continuing these steps.
5.
From the PC connected to the switch, open a web-browser session and enter the
switch’s IP address as the URL. This opens the login screen for the switch’s webbrowser interface from which you perform the next steps.
6.
Click Login to start a switch web-browser interface session. By default, there is
no password.
A screen similar to the following appears:

Troubleshooting
Diagnosing with the LEDs
Tip
Problem
Solution
➋
A switch hardware
failure has occurred.
All the LEDs will stay
on indefinitely.
Try power cycling the switch. If the fault indication reoccurs, the switch might have
failed. Call your HP authorized network reseller, or use the electronic support
services from HP to get assistance.
➌
The network port for
which the Link LED is
blinking has
experienced a self test
or initialization failure.
Try power cycling the switch. If the fault indication reoccurs, the switch port might
have failed. To confirm, try a different port that appears to be good. Call your HP
authorized network reseller, or use the electronic support services from HP to get
assistance.
If the port is an SFP, verify that it is one of the SFPs supported by the switch.
Unsupported SFPs are identified with this fault condition. The supported SFPs are
listed in Chapter 1, “Switch Overview” on page 1-3. The SFPs are also tested by the
switch when they are “hot-swapped”— installed or changed while the switch is
powered on.
To verify that the port has failed, try removing and reinstalling the SFP without
powering off the switch. If the port fault indication reoccurs, replace the SFP.
➍
The network
connection is not
working properly.
Try the following steps:
• For the indicated port, verify that both ends of the cabling, at the switch and the
connected device, are secure.
• Verify that the connected device and the switch are both powered on and are
operating correctly.
• Verify that the connected devices comply with the appropriate IEEE 802.3 standard, including transmission of the Link signal.
• If these steps do not resolve the problem, try using a different port or a different
network cable.
A PoE power sourcing
equipment (PSE)
device is connected to
port 1 on an HP
PS1810-8G Switch, but
PoE power is not being
supplied.
Try the following steps:
• Make sure that the PSE device is powered on.
• Make sure that the network cable between the PSE and the switch is fully
connected at both ends.
• On the PSE, make sure that the port being used to provide the PoE power has
appropriate PoE capabilities and priority, and that PoE delivery is enabled on that
port.
• If these steps do not resolve the problem, try using a different network cable.

Cabling and Technology Information
Note on 1000BASE-T Cable Requirements. The Category 5 networking cables
that work for 100BASE-TX connections should also work for 1000BASE-T, as long
as all four-pairs are connected. But, for the most robust connections, you should use
cabling that complies with the Category 5e specifications, as described in Addendum
5 to the TIA-568-A standard (ANSI/TIA/EIA-568-A-5).
Because of the increased speed provided by 1000BASE-T (Gigabit-T), network cable
quality is more important than for either 10BASE-T or 100BASE-TX. Cabling plants
being used to carry 1000BASE-T networking must comply with the IEEE 802.3ab
standards. In particular, the cabling must pass tests for Attenuation, Near-End
Crosstalk (NEXT), and Far-End Crosstalk (FEXT). Additionally, unlike the cables
for 100BASE-TX, the 1000BASE-T cables must pass tests for Equal-Level Far-End
Crosstalk (ELFEXT) and Return Loss.
When testing your cabling, be sure to include the patch cables that connect the switch
and the other end devices to the patch panels on your site. The patch cables are
frequently overlooked when testing cable. The patch cables must also comply with
the cabling standards.

Mode Conditioning Patch Cord
Mode Conditioning Patch Cord
The following information applies to installations in which multimode fiber-optic
cables are connected to a Gigabit-LX port. Multimode cable has a design
characteristic called “Differential Mode Delay”, which requires the transmission
signals be “conditioned” to compensate for the cable design and thus prevent resulting
transmission errors.
Under certain circumstances, depending on the cable used and the lengths of the cable
runs, an external Mode Conditioning Patch Cord may need to be installed between
the Gigabit-LX transmitting device and the multimode network cable to provide the
transmission conditioning. If you experience a high number of transmission errors
on those ports, usually CRC or FCS errors, you may need to install one of these patch
cords between the fiber-optic port in your switch and your multimode fiber-optic
network cabling, at both ends of the network link.
The patch cord consists of a short length of single mode fiber cable, coupled to
graded-index multimode fiber cable on the transmit side, and only multimode cable
on the receive side. The section of single mode fiber is connected in such a way that
it minimizes the effects of the differential mode delay in the multimode cable.
Note
Most of the time, if you are using good quality graded-index multimode fiber cable
that adheres to the standards listed in this appendix, there should not be a need to use
mode conditioning patch cords in your network. This is especially true if the fiber
runs in your network are relatively short.
Installing the Patch Cord
As shown in the illustration below, connect the patch cord to the transceiver with the
section of single mode fiber plugged in to the Tx (transmit) port. Then, connect the
other end of the patch cord to your network cabling patch panel, or directly to the
network multimode fiber.
If you connect the patch cord directly to the network cabling, you may need to install
a female-to-female adapter to allow the cables to be connected together.

Example: Connecting a Mode Conditioning Patch Cord for Gigabit-LX
Make sure you purchase a patch cord that has appropriate connectors on each end,
and has multimode fibers that match the characteristics of the multimode fiber in
your network. Most important, the core diameter of the multimode patch cord must
match the core diameter of the multimode cable infrastructure (either 50 or 62.5
microns).

Twisted-Pair Cable/Connector Pin-Outs
Twisted-Pair Cable/Connector Pin-Outs
The Auto-MDIX Feature: In the default configuration, “Auto”, the fixed 10/100/
1000BASE-T ports on the switches all automatically detect the type of port on the
connected device and operate as either an MDI or MDI-X port, whichever is
appropriate. So for any connection, a straight-through twisted-pair cable can be
used—you no longer have to use crossover cables, although crossover cables can
also be used for any of the connections. (The 10/100/1000-T ports support the IEEE
802.3ab standard, which includes the “Auto-MDIX” feature.)
If you connect a switch twisted-pair port to another switch or hub, which typically
have MDI-X ports, the switch port automatically operates as an MDI port. If you
connect it to an end node, such as a server or PC, which typically have MDI ports,
the switch port operates as an MDI-X port. In all cases, you can use standard straightthrough cables or crossover cables.
If you use a correctly wired crossover cable, though, the switch will still be able to
automatically detect the MDI/MDI-X operation and link correctly to the connected
device.
Note
Using Fixed Configurations. If the port configuration is changed to any of the fixed
configurations though, for example 100 Mb/s/full duplex, the port operates as MDIX only and the correct cable type must be used: for connections to MDI ports, such
as end nodes, use a straight-through cable; for connections to MDI-X ports, such as
on hubs and other switches, use a crossover cable.
Other Wiring Rules:
A-8
■
All twisted-pair wires used for 10 Mb/s, and 100 Mb/s operation must be twisted
through the entire length of the cable. The wiring sequence must conform to
EIA/TIA 568-B (not USOC). See “Twisted-Pair Cable Pin Assignments” later
in this appendix for a listing of the signals used on each pin.
■
For 1000BASE-T connections, all four pairs of wires in the cable must be
available for data transmission.
■
For 10 Mb/s connections to the ports, you can use Category 3, 4, or 5 unshielded
twisted-pair cable, as supported by the IEEE 802.3 Type 10BASE-T standard.
■
For 100 Mb/s connections to the ports, use 100-ohm Category 5 UTP or STP
cable only, as supported by the IEEE 802.3u Type 100BASE-TX
standard.
■
For 1000 Mb/s connections, 100-ohm Category 5e or better cabling is recommended.

Because of the Auto-MDIX operation of the 10/100 ports on the switch, for all
network connections, to PCs, servers or other end nodes, or to hubs or other switches,
you can use straight-through cables.
If any of these ports are given a fixed configuration, for example 100 Mb/s/Full
Duplex, the ports operate as MDI-X ports, and straight-through cables must be then
used for connections to PC NICs and other MDI ports.
