S u p p or t N o t i c e s :
WARNING. Updating to Version K.13.xx: . It is important that you update to K.13.xx from a
configuration that has not been previously converted from a pre-K.13.xx format (e.g. a K.11.xx or
K.12.xx configuration). If you have previously updated to K.13.xx and rolled back to K.12.xx to
workaround an issue, you should load a saved K.12.xx configuration to the switch and boot to it prior
to updating to K.13 again.
Performing major software updates: Before updating your software version from K.12.xx to
K.13.xx, read the recommended best practices for performing major software updates (page 7).
Restriction in number of ACL mirror destinations: The K.13.01 software introduced a new
restriction to a single ACL mirror destination. For more information, see "Restriction in number of
ACL mirror destinations (page 24) .
PIM-SM: PIM-SM users should make sure ProCurve switches that run K software should all be on
the either pre-K.13.21 or post-K.13.21 versions of software due to a bug fix in K.13.21 that changes
the way a rendezvous point is chosen.

of the following methods for downloading it to the switch:
■
For a TFTP transfer from a server, do either of the following:
•
■
Select Download OS in the Main Menu of the switch’s menu interface and use the (default)
TFTP option.
• Use the copy tftp command in the switch’s CLI (see below).
For an Xmodem transfer from a PC or Unix workstation, do either of the following:
•
Select Download OS in the Main Menu of the switch’s menu interface and select the
Xmodem option.
■
• Use the copy xmodem command in the switch’s CLI (page 3).
Use the USB port to download a software file from a USB flash drive (page 5).
■
Use the download utility in ProCurve Manager Plus.
Note
Downloading new software does not change the current switch configuration. The switch configuration is contained in a separate file that can also be transferred, for example, for archive purposes
or to be used in another switch of the same model.
This section describes how to use the CLI to download software to the switch. You can also use the
menu interface for software downloads. For more information, refer to the Management and
Configuration Guide for your switch.

TFTP Download from a Server
Syntax:copy tftp flash <ip-address> <remote-os-file> [ < primary | secondary > ]
Note that if you do not specify the flash destination, the TFTP download defaults to the primary flash.
For example, to download a software file named K_11_1x.swi from a TFTP server with the IP address
of 10.28.227.103:
1.
Execute the copy command as shown below:
ProCurve # copy tftp flash 10.28.227.103 K_11_1x.swi
The primary OS image will be deleted. continue [y/n]? Y

3.
When the CLI prompt re-appears, the switch is ready to reboot to activate the downloaded
software:
a.
Use the show flash command to verify that the new software version is in the expected flash
area (primary or secondary)
b. Reboot the switch from the flash area that holds the new software (primary or secondary),
using the following command:
Syntax: boot system flash [ < primary | secondary > ]
After the switch reboots, it displays the CLI or Main Menu, depending on the Logon Default setting
last configured in the menu’s Switch Setup screen.
4.
Verify the software version by displaying the system information for the switch (for example,
through the show system-information command), and viewing the Software revision field.
Xmodem Download From a PC or Unix Workstation
This procedure assumes that:
■
The switch is connected via the Console RS-232 port to a PC operating as a terminal. (Refer
to the Installation and Getting Started Guide you received with the switch for information
on connecting a PC as a terminal and running the switch console interface.)
■
The switch software is stored on a disk drive in the PC.
■
The terminal emulator you are using includes the Xmodem binary transfer feature. (For
example, in the HyperTerminal application included with Windows NT, you would use the
Send File option in the Transfer drop-down menu.)
Using Xmodem and a terminal emulator, you can download a switch software file to either primary
or secondary flash using the CLI.

Software Management
Download Switch Documentation and Software from the Web
Syntax: copy xmodem flash [< primary | secondary >]
1.
To reduce the download time, you may want to increase the baud rate in your terminal emulator
and in the switch to a value such as 115200 bits per second. (The baud rate must be the same
in both devices.) For example, to change the baud rate in the switch to 115200, execute this
command:
ProCurve(config)# console baud-rate 115200
(If you use this option, be sure to set your terminal emulator to the same baud rate.)
Changing the console baud-rate requires saving to the Startup Config with the “write memory”
command. Alternatively, you can logout of the switch and change your terminal emulator speed
and allow the switch to AutoDetect your new higher baud rate (i.e. 115200 bps)
2.
Execute the following command in the CLI:
ProCurve # copy xmodem flash primary
The primary OS image will be deleted. continue [y/n]? Y
Press ‘Enter’ and start XMODEM on your host...
3.
Execute the terminal emulator commands to begin the Xmodem transfer. For example, using
HyperTerminal:
a.
Click on Transfer, then Send File.
b. Type the file path and name in the Filename field.
c.
In the Protocol field, select Xmodem.
d. Click on the Send button.
The download can take several minutes, depending on the baud rate used in the transfer.
4.
If you increased the baud rate on the switch (step 1), use the same command to return it to its
previous setting. (ProCurve recommends a baud rate of 9600 bits per second for most applications.) Remember to return your terminal emulator to the same baud rate as the switch.)
5.
Use the show flash command to verify that the new software version is in the expected flash
area (primary or secondary)
6.
Reboot the switch from the flash area that holds the new software (primary or secondary).
After the switch reboots, it displays the CLI or Main Menu, depending on the Logon Default setting
last configured in the menu’s Switch Setup screen.

Using USB to Download Switch Software
To use the USB port on the switch to download a software version from a USB flash drive:
■
The software version must be stored on the USB flash drive, and you must know the file
name (such as K_12_10.swi).
■
The USB flash drive must be properly installed in the USB port on the switch.
Note
Some USB flash drives may not be supported on your switch. For information on USB device
compatibility, refer to the HP ProCurve support Website:
http://www.hp.com/rnd/support/faqs/index.htm.
Syntax: copy usb flash <filename> [ < primary | secondary > ]
For example, to download a software file named K_12_10.swi from a USB flash drive:
1.
Execute the copy command as shown below:
ProCurve # copy usb flash K_12_10.swi secondary
The secondary OS image will be deleted. continue [y/n]? Y

Software Management
Saving Configurations While Using the CLI
Saving Configurations While Using the CLI
The switch operates with two configuration files:
■
Running-Config File: Exists in volatile memory and controls switch operation. Rebooting
the switch erases the current running-config file and replaces it with an exact copy of the
current startup-config file. To save a configuration change, you must save the running
configuration to the startup-config file.
■
Startup-Config File: Exists in flash (non-volatile) memory and preserves the most
recently-saved configuration as the “permanent” configuration. When the switch reboots for
any reason, an exact copy of the current startup-config file becomes the new running-config
file in volatile memory.
When you use the CLI to make a configuration change, the switch places the change in the
running-config file. If you want to preserve the change across reboots, you must save the change to
the startup-config file. Otherwise, the next time the switch reboots, the change will be lost. There are
two ways to save configuration changes while using the CLI:
■
Execute write memory from the Manager, Global, or Context configuration level.
■
When exiting from the CLI to the Main Menu, press [Y] (for Yes) when you see the “save
configuration” prompt:
Do you want to save current configuration [y/n]?

Best Practices for Major Software Updates
Best Practices for Major Software Updates
Major software updates contain new features and enhancements, and are designated by an increment
to the major release version number. That is, K.12.xx represents a major update to software version(s)
K.11.xx, and K.13.xx represents a major update to K.12.xx, and so forth. To mitigate against potential
migration issues when performing such an update, this section documents best practices for updating
the switch, including contingency procedures for rolling back to previous software versions and
saved configurations.
Caution
Before you update the switch software to a major new version, ProCurve strongly recommends that
you save off a copy of your config file to an external location. ProCurve advises against rolling back
(going from a newer software version to an older software version) without copying on a backup
config file to the device.
Updating the Switch: Overview
To perform a major update to your switch software, follow the steps below (see page 8 for details):
1.
Download the image to your TFTP server.
2.
Save your current configuration (Config1) to a backup configuration file (Config2).
3.
Save your current configuration to an external tftp server.
4.
Backup your current running image (Primary) to the secondary image.
5.
Set your secondary image to boot with Config2.
6.
Download the new image to the switch’s primary image.
7.
Verify that your images and configuration are set correctly.
8.
Reload the switch.
After following these steps, you should end up with the following results:
■
Primary image will hold the new software image you want to install (for example, K.13.06)
■
Secondary image will hold the image you are currently running (for example, K.12.57)
■
Primary image will boot with config1 (config file corresponding to new software version—in
this example, K.13.06)
■
Secondary image will boot with config2* (config file corresponding to previous software
version—in this example, K.12.57)
* The current config file must be copied to config2, or you will be unable to revert if the need arises.

Software Management
Best Practices for Major Software Updates
Note:
You might opt to use a different methodology in which the new software will be installed as the
secondary and not the primary image, in which case you would use the commands boot system flash
secondary, and/or boot set-default flash secondary to change the location of the default boot. However,
since you will still need to take precautions to allow you to revert to your previous configuration,
ProCurve strongly recommends you follow the methods that are proposed in our update process.
This will ensure that you can use our proposed roll back procedures should the need arise.
Updating the Switch: Detailed Steps
The following detailed steps shows how to update the switch software from an existing version to a
major new release (in the example provided here, from version K.12.57 to version K.13.06).
1.
Download the latest release software image to your TFTP server from the ProCurve Web site.:
http://www.hp.com/rnd/software/switches.htm
2.
Save your current configuration (Config1) to backup configuration file (Config2).
a.
Before copying the config, verify the current state of your system using the show version,
show flash, and show config files commands. For example:

Save the current config to a tftp server using the copy tftp command. For example:
Switch1# copy startup-config tftp 10.1.1.60 Switch1_config_K_12_57.cfg
Note
This step is necessary because ProCurve does not support roll back (going from a newer software
version to an older software version) without the ability to copy a backup config file onto the device.

At the prompt, answer y, for yes, and the switch will boot with the new image.
Note:
As an additional step, ProCurve advises saving the startup-config to a tftp server using the copy tftp
command. For example:

Rolling Back Switch Software
If you have followed the update procedures documented in the previous section, you should be able
to revert to your previous configuration and software version using the steps below.
To roll back your switch from K.13.06 to K.12.57, for example, follow the steps below:
1.
Verify that your images and configuration are set correctly using the show version, show flash,
and show config files commands.

Boot the switch using the secondary image (with config2).
Switch1# boot system flash secondary
System will be rebooted from secondary image. Do you want to continue [y/n]? y
Answer y, for yes, and the switch will boot from the secondary image (K.12.57, in this
example) with the corresponding configuration for that software version (Config2).
Viewing or Transferring Alternate Configuration Files
Viewing or copying an alternate configuration saved to the switch will always be accomplished
through the software currently running on the switch. This may result in a misleading portrayal of
the configuration. For example, if a configuration is created on K.12.57 and saved as config2, and if
it is then viewed or transferred while the switch is running K.13.06, it will appear as though K.13.06
has converted the configuration. However, the alternate configuration file, config2, will still be intact
on the switch and load properly when the switch is booted into the same software version from which
the configuration file originated.
When an enhancement introduces a feature that did not previously exist in the switch, it may present
several challenges to the user.
Backwards compatibility of the configuration created with a version of software that supports a new
feature or parameter is not guaranteed. Software versions that did not recognize or support a
particular command or parameter will not be able to interpret that line in the configuration. For this
reason, it is strongly recommended that network administrators always save their configuration
while still running the switch with the original software version, and with a notation indicating
the software version on which the configuration was saved. For example, a user might save a
configuration for a switch running K.12.57 to a TFTP server with an IP address of 10.10.10.15 as
follows:
ProCurve5406zl-onK1257# copy running-config tftp 10.10.10.15
5406onK1257
If, for example, the user deems it necessary to revert to the use of K.12.57, she can boot into it and
then restore the saved config from the TFTP server.
Viewing or copying an alternate configuration that is saved to the switch flash can be accomplished
only with the software that is currently running on the switch.
Here, for example, a configuration is created on K.12.57 and then saved to flash:
ProCurve5406zl-onK1257# copy config config2 config K1257config <cr>
12
Software Management
Best Practices for Major Software Updates
And later, the configuration that was created on K.12.57 is viewed while the switch is running K.13.06:
ProCurve5406zl-onK1306# show config K1257config <cr>
The command output will show how the K.12.57 config would be interpreted, if it were to be used
by the K.13.06 software. Copying the K1257config to a TFTP server would similarly trigger an
interpretation by the software performing the file transfer. Note, however, that this does not actually
change the configuration. If the version is rolled back from K.13.06 to K.12.57 with a command like
the following (given that K.12.57 is stored in secondary flash), the K.12.xx formatted config is still
intact and valid.
ProCurve5406zl# boot system flash secondary config K1257config
This “interpretation” during a TFTP or show command execution is inherent in the architecture of
the switch. When switch features change significantly (e.g. the move from IPv4 support to IPv6
support), there may be configuration parameters from the previous config that cannot be translated
by the switch for viewing while it is running the new software. This necessitates storing configurations for each version of software to an external location, if the user would like to view the stored
config prior to reloading it.

ROM Update Required!
All yl and zl switches running K.12.45 system software or earlier, will have the BootROM updated by
this new version of system software. This software download will boot the switch twice, first to
update the BootROM to version K.12.14, and then to load the system software. Following file copy
to the switch flash and initiation of the reload, no additional user intervention is needed. Do not
interrupt power to the switch during this important update.
To confirm that the boot ROM and system software have updated successfully following a reload into
software version K.13.49 or newer, follow the process below at your switch CLI.

Using SNMP To View and Configure Switch Authentication Features
Beginning with software release K.12.01, manager read/write access is available for a subset of the
SNMP MIB objects for switch authentication (hpSwitchAuth) features. That is, in the default state,
a device with management access to the switch can view the configuration for several authentication
features, and using SNMP sets, can change elements of the authentication configuration.
Security Note
In the default configuration for SNMP MIB object access, SNMP sets can be used to reconfigure
password and key MIB objects. This means that a device operating as a management station with
access to the switch can be used to change the SNMP MIB settings. This can pose a security risk if
the feature is used to incorrectly configure authentication features or to reconfigure authentication
features to unauthorized settings.
If you want to block the SNMP MIB object access described above, use the following command to
disable the feature:

Support Notes
Minimum Software Versions
ProCurve(config)# snmp-server mib hpswitchauthmib excluded
For more information on the above topic, refer to "Using SNMP To View and Configure Switch
Authentication Features" in the "RADIUS Authentication and Accounting" chapter of the Access
Security Guide for your switch. For an overview of the security features available on the switch,
refer to chapter 1, "Security Overview", in the Access Security Guide for your switch.
Security:
Downloading and booting software release K.12.01 or greater for the first time automatically
enables SNMP access to the hpSwitchAuth MIB objects. If this is not desirable for your network,
ProCurve recommends that you disable it after downloading and rebooting with the latest switch
software.
ACL numbering restrictions:
The K.12.01 release enforces ACL numbering restrictions.
See the Note under Version K.12.01 Software Fixes on page 160 (PR_1000389442) for details.
OSPF virtual link:
OSPF virtual links configurations will be lost with the update to K.12.01.
See the Note under Version K.12.01 Software Fixes on page 161 (PR_1000374003) for details.
MSTP auto-edge-port support and default settings:
With version K.12.04 (page 33), automatic detection of edge ports is supported, along with revised
command options and default settings.
Resources (PR_1000388697):
When the switch is writing large files to flash (for example, a transfer of a very large configuration
or a software update), switch resources may be impacted during the write operation, causing
some potential loss of hello packets. This may impact VRRP, OSPF or spanning tree protocol. In
order to mitigate potentially undesirable affects, updates to the switch software should be made
during a scheduled downtime. Increasing the hello interval of time sensitive protocols may also
assist with mitigation of this issue.
Support for the Wireless Edge Services zl Module
The addition of support for the zl Wireless Edge Services Module will change the way in which radio
ports are treated by the zl and yl Series Switches. If the default setting of LLDP auto-provisioning is
left intact, LLDP information from the ProCurve Radio Ports (J9004A, J9005A, J9006A) will trigger
these devices to be placed into VLAN 2100 or the first available VLAN not already configured above
that (see the section entitled Using Auto-Provisioning to Establish a Radio Port VLAN in the

Support Notes
Minimum Software Versions
Management and Configuration Guide for ProCurve Wireless Edge Services zl Module here:
ftp://ftp.hp.com/pub/networking/software/WESM-zl-MgmtCfg-Aug2007-59918626.pdf). Network
administrators who do not wish to have the radio ports moved to the auto-provisioned VLAN should
disable this feature with the command "no lldp auto-proision" at the CLI.
CAUTION: Updating to Version K.13.xx
It is important that you update to K.13.xx from a configuration that has not been previously converted
from a pre-K.13.xx format (e.g. a K.11.xx or K.12.xx configuration). If you have previously updated
to K.13.xx and rolled back to K.12.xx to workaround an issue, you should load a saved K.12.xx
configuration to the switch and boot to it prior to updating to K.13 again.

Clarifications
Minimum Software Versions
Clarifications
The following clarification or updates apply to documentation for the ProCurve Series 3500yl, 6200yl,
5400zl, and 8212zl Switches as of July 2008.
■
Maximum Number of VLANs Supported in Hardware for PIM-S — Page 4-5 in
the Multicast and Routing Guide dated January 2008 for switches running version K
software incorrectly states that up to 2048 flows are supported in hardware across a
maximum of 512 VLANs. Up to 2048 flows are supported across a maximum of 128 VLANs.
■
Maximum Number of Flows in the MRT — Page 4-41 in the Multicast and Routing Guide
dated January 2008 for switches running version K software incorrectly states that up to 1023
flows are supported. Up to 2048 flows are supported.
■
Enabling Jumbo Frames and Flow Control:
The Series 3500yl, 6200yl, 5400zl, and 8212zl switches support simultaneous use of Jumbo
Frames and Flow Control. (An earlier version of the Management and Configuration Guide
had incorrectly stated that these features could not be enabled at the same time.)
■
Clarification for the Number of IP addresses and maximum VLANs that can be
configured on the switch:
You can configure a maximum of 512 routed VLANs per switch. A VLAN can be configured with
up to 32 IP addresses. However, the maximum number of IP addresses that can be configured
on the switch is 2048, so it is not possible to configure up to the maximum number of routed
VLANs (512) with 32 IP addresses each. For example, if you wanted to use all available IP
addresses for the switch and utilize all 512 possible routed VLANS with as many assigned IP
addresses as possible, the configuration is calculated as follows:
512 routed VLANs x 4 IP addresses per VLAN = 2048 total IP addresses.
Refer to the Advanced Traffic Management Guide for further details.
■
TACACS+ Encryption Key Exclusion from TFTP Copies
When using the copy command to transfer a configuration to a TFTP server, any
server-specific or global encryption keys in the TACACS+ configuration will not be included
in the transferred file. Otherwise, a security breach could occur, allowing access to the
TACACS+ user name/password information.
■
RIP and OSPF Redistribution:
RIP operation supports static, connected, and OSPF route redistribution. OSPF operation
supports static, connected, and RIP route redistribution. (The earlier version of the Advanced
Traffic Management Guide omitted RIP and OSPF route redistribution.)
20
Clarifications
Minimum Software Versions
■
Maximum UDP Broadcast Forwarding Entries:
The number of UDP broadcast entries and IP helper addresses combined can be up to 16 per
VLAN, with an overall maximum of 2048 on the switch. An earlier version of the Multicast
and Routing Guide (page 5-142) had incorrectly stated that the overall maximum is 256.
■
Reload Command Description
Syntax: Reload
This command boots the switch from the currently active flash image and startup-config file.
Because reload bypasses some subsystem self-tests, the switch boots faster than if you use a
boot command. Note: To identify the currently active startup-config file, use the show config files
command. (This is a clarification of Syntax: Reload (page 6.33) in the Management and
Configuration Guide.)
Using Reload
The reload command reboots the switch from the flash image on which you are currently booted
(primary or secondary) or the flash image that was set either by the boot set-default command or
by the last executed boot system flash <primary | secondary> command. Because reload bypasses
some subsystem self-tests, the switch reboots faster than when you use either of the boot
command options. If you are using redundant management and redundancy is enabled when
using reload, the switch will failover to the other management module. (This is a clarification of
Using Reload (page 6.24) in the Management and Configuration Guide.)
■
MSTP mCheck:
Unlike other MSTP parameters, 'mCheck' is not a configurable option. It is a flag that tells
MSTP to initiate transmission of RST/MST BPDUs for a MigrateTime (3 secs) period, to test
whether all STP Bridges on the attached LAN have been removed and the Port can migrate
to the native MSTP mode and use RST/MST BPDUs for transmission. The 'mCheck' is always
cleared (set FALSE) prior to port initialization.
Virus-Throttling (Connection-rate filtering):
As of release K.12.01, this feature enables notification of worm-like behavior detected on all
inbound IP traffic. (The Advanced Traffic Management Guide retains some incorrect references
to filtering on IP routed traffic only.)
Some of the earlier ProCurve MSTP implementations allowed the 'mCheck' option to be a configurable parameter. It was stored in the config. That was corrected beginning with version K.12.04.

Restriction in number of ACL mirror destinations — The K.13.01 software introduced
a new restriction to a single ACL mirror destination. K.12 versions of software allowed up
to 4 ACL mirror destinations. Users with multiple ACL mirror sessions must edit their
configurations so that they contain only a single mirror destination prior to updating to
K.13.01 or newer software. If a switch with multiple ACL mirror destinations is updated from
K.12.xx to K.13.01 or newer, only the first destination will function. The additional mirror
sessions will have to be edited out of the configuration offline, and the valid configuration
then loaded onto the switch.

Software Manual/
Enhancements
Description
Management and Configuration Guide
Bi-directional Rate Limiting: In earlier releases, all traffic rate-limiting applied to inbound traffic only,
and was specified as a percentage of total bandwidth. This enhancement
allows you to configure outbound rate-limiting for all traffic on a port, and
specify bandwidth usage in terms of bits per second (bps).
Loopback Interface: A virtual interface that is always up and reachable as long as at least one
of the IP interfaces on the switch is operational. By default, each switch
has an internal loopback interface (lo0). You can configure up to seven
other loopback interfaces on the switch.
USB Support Provides an option for using a USB device as a source or destination for
file transfers. Refer to "Using USB To Download Switch Software" in the
"File Transfers" appendix of the Management and Configuration Guide for
your switch (February 2007 or newer). For information on USB device
compatibility on the 3500yl, 5400zl, and 6200yl switches, refer to the HP
ProCurve support Website:
http://www.hp.com/rnd/support/faqs/index.htm.
Intelligent Mirroring Enables copying of network traffic from a network interface to a local or
remote exit port where a host such as a traffic analyzer or intrusion
detection system (IDS) is connected.
DNS Resolver Used in local network domains to enable the use of a hostname or
fully-qualified domain name to perform ping and traceroute operations from
the switch.
SNMP-Server Source IP Provides added security by allowing you to send SNMP replies from the
Commands: same IP address as the one on which the corresponding SNMP request
was received.
SNMPv3 AES Support: Authentication and privacy for SNMPv3 users has been enhanced to
support AES 128-bit encryption as a privacy protocol in SNMPv3 messages
in compliance with RFC 3826.
Multicast and Routing Guide
OSPF NSAA: Support for Not-So-Stubby-Areas (NSAA).

Qos Queue Config: Allows you to reduce the number of outbound queues that all switch ports
will use to buffer packets for 802.1p user priorities.
Number of Default VLANs: In the factory default state, support has been increased from 8 VLANs to
256 VLANs. (You can reconfigure the switch to support up to 2048 (vids up
to 4094) VLANs.)
Migrating Layer 3 VLANs Using Allows you to upgrade to ProCurve routing switches without stopping the
VLAN MAC Configuration: operation of attached hosts that use existing routers as their default
gateway to route traffic between VLANs.
Access Security Guide
RADIUS AAA: Provides client-level security that allows LAN access to individual 802.1X
clients (up to 32 per port), where each client gains access to the LAN by
entering valid user credentials. This operation improves security by
opening a given port only to individually authenticated clients, while simultaneously blocking access to the same port for clients that cannot be
authenticated.
SNMP Access to Switch Enables manager read/write access for a subset of the SNMP MIB objects
Authentication features: for switch authentication features.
Security Note: Downloading and booting software release K.12.01 or
greater for the first time automatically enables SNMP access to the
hpSwitchAuth MIB objects. For more information, or to disable this feature
see“Support Notes” on page 17 for details.
Password Set via SNMP: Allows configuration of username and password via SNMP.
Client-based Access Control: In earlier releases, all traffic rate-limiting applied to inbound traffic only,
and was specified as a percentage of total bandwidth. This enhancement
allows you to configure outbound rate-limiting for all traffic on a port, and
specify bandwidth usage in terms of bits per second (bps).
Virus Throttling This enhancement allows connection-rate filtering on all IP traffic (not just
on Bridged Traffic: routed traffic as in earlier releases).
ACLs on Port Traffic and Bridged Allows configuration of ACLs to filter traffic entering the switch on a VLAN
Traffic: or port.
Dynamic ARP Protection: Protects your network from ARP cache poisoning by dropping packets, with
an invalid IP-to-MAC address binding, that are received on untrusted ports.
Instrumentation Monitor: Protects your network from a variety of common attacks by generating
alerts for detected anomalies on the switch.

Note on Manual Updates: In addition to the above updates to the manuals, the chapter on ACLs has been
moved from the Advanced Traffic Management Guide to the Access Security Guide. The Access Security
Guide also provides a new introductory “Security Overview” chapter, plus a new chapter on “Advanced
Threat Protection” covering topics such as DHCP Snooping and Dynamic Arp Protection.
In addition to the updates listed above, K.12.01 also provides the following enhancements:
■
Enhancement (PR_1000298920) — A ping request issued to a VLAN which is down will
now return a more specific message; instead of "request timed out," the message "The
destination address is unreachable" will be displayed.
■
Enhancement (PR_1000373226) — Support was added for the ProCurve 100-FX SFP-LC
Transceiver (J9054B).
■
Enhancement (PR_1000376626) — Enhance CLI qos dscp-map help and show dscp-map
text to warn the user that inbound classification based on DSCP code points only occurs if
qos type-of-service diff-services is also configured.
Release K.12.02 Enhancements
No enhancements, software fixes only.
Release K.12.03 Enhancements
Release K.12.03 includes the following enhancements:
■
Enhancement (PR_1000379804) — Historical information about MAC addresses that

Release K.12.04 Enhancements
Release K.12.04 includes the following enhancement:
■
Enhancement MSTP (PR_1000369492) — Update of MSTP implementation to the latest
IEEE P802.1Q-REV/D5.0 specification to stay in compliance with the protocol evolution. For
more information on selected configuration options and updated MSTP port parameters, see
“Configuring MSTP Port Connectivity Parameters” below.
Configuring MSTP Port Connectivity Parameters
With release K.12.04, all ports are configured as auto-edge-ports by default, and the spanning tree
edge-port option has been removed. This section describes selected spanning-tree <port-list> command
parameters for enhanced operation.
Basic port connectivity parameters affect spanning-tree links at the global level. Therefore, in most
cases, ProCurve recommends that you use the revised default settings for these parameters and apply
changes on a per-port basis only where a non-default setting is clearly indicated by the circumstances
of individual links (for example, see the root-guard option below).
To display the spanning-tree settings for each port, use the show spanning-tree config command.
Syntax: [no] spanning-tree < port-list > < auto-edge-port | admin-edge-port | mcheck | root-guard |
tcn-guard >
[auto-edge-port]
Enables auto-edge-port operation for MSTP, and supports the automatic detection
of edge ports. (Default: Yes, enabled)
The port will look for BPDUs for 3 seconds; if there are none it begins forwarding
packets. If admin-edge-port is enabled for a port, the setting for auto-edge-port is
ignored whether set to yes or no. If admin-edge-port is disabled, and auto-edge-port
has not been disabled, then the auto-edge-port setting controls the behavior of the
port.
The no spanning-tree < port-list > auto-edge-port command disables auto-edge-port
operation on the specified ports.
33
Enhancements
Release K.12.04 Enhancements
[admin-edge-port]
Enables admin-edge-port for RSTP/MSTP. If a bridge or switch is detected on the
segment, the port automatically operates as non-edge, not enabled. (Default: No
- disabled)
If admin-edge-port is disabled on a port and auto-edge-port has not been disabled,
the auto-edge-port setting controls the behavior of the port.
The no spanning-tree < port-list > admin-edge-port command disables
admin-edge-port operation on the specified ports.
[mcheck]
Forces a port to send RSTP/MSTP BPDUs for 3 seconds. This allows for another
switch connected to the port and running RSTP to establish its connection
quickly and for identifying switches running 802.1D STP. If the whole-switch
force-version parameter is set to stp-compatible, the switch ignores the mcheck
setting and sends 802.1D STP BPDUs out all ports.
[root-guard]
MSTP only. When a port is enabled as root-guard, it cannot be selected as the root
port even if it receives superior STP BPDUs. The port is assigned an “alternate”
port role and enters a blocking state if it receives superior STP BPDUs. The
BPDUs received on a root-guard port are ignored. All other BPDUs are accepted
and the external devices may belong to the spanning tree as long as they do not
claim to be the Root device. (Default: No - disabled)
Note: In standard Spanning Tree Protocol operation, the calculation of active
network topologies may be an issue when switches outside the core region of a
network are under shared or limited administrative control. Such a switch may
become a Root Bridge for the entire network and create non-optimal forwarding
paths. By enabling the root-guard feature on ports that face outside the core
network, external boundaries for the core network are created to ensure the Root
Bridge is located within the core network.
[tcn-guard]
When tcn-guard is enabled for a port, it causes the port to stop propagating
received topology change notifications and topology changes to other ports.
(Default: No - disabled)
34
Enhancements
Release K.12.04 Enhancements
Syntax: spanning-tree < port-list > < hello-time | path-cost | point-to-point-mac | priority >
[hello-time < global | 1 - 10 >
When the switch is the CIST root, this parameter specifies the interval (in
seconds) between periodic BPDU transmissions by the designated ports. This
interval also applies to all ports in all switches downstream from each port in
the < port-list >. A setting of global indicates that the ports in < port-list > on the
CIST root are using the value set by the global spanning-tree hello-time value.
When a given switch “X” is not the CIST root, the per-port hello-time for all active
ports on switch “X” is propagated from the CIST root, and is the same as the
hello-time in use on the CIST root port in the currently active path from switch
“X” to the CIST root. (That is, when switch “X” is not the CIST root, then the
upstream CIST root’s port hello-time setting overrides the hello-time setting
configured on switch “X”. (Default Per-Port setting: Use Global. Default Global
Hello-Time: 2.)
[path-cost < auto | 1.200000000 >]
Assigns an individual port cost that the switch uses to determine which ports
are forwarding ports in a given spanning tree. In the default configuration
(auto) the switch determines a port’s path cost by the port’s type:
– 10 Mbps: 2000000
– 100 Mbps: 200000
– 1 Gbps: 20000
point-to-point-mac <true | false | auto >
This parameter informs the switch of the type of device to which a specific port
connects.
True (default): Indicates a point-to-point link to a device such as a switch,
bridge, or end-node.
False: Indicates a connection to a hub (which is a shared LAN segment).
Auto: Causes the switch to set False on the port if it is not running at full duplex.
(Connections to hubs are half-duplex.)
35
Enhancements
Release K.12.05 Enhancements
priority < 0.15 >
MSTP uses this parameter to determine the port(s) to use for forwarding. The
port with the lowest assigned value has the highest priority. While the actual
priority range is 0 to 240, this command specifies the priority as a multiplier
(0-15) of 16. That is, when you specify a priority multiplier of 0-15, the actual
priority assigned to the switch is:
(priority-multiplier) x 16 = priority
The default priority-multiplier value is 8.
For example, if you configure “2” as the priority multiplier for a given port,
then the actual priority is 32. Thus, after you specify the port priority
multiplier, the switch displays the actual port priority (and not the multiplier)
in the show spanning-tree config display. You can view the actual multiplier
setting for ports by executing show running and looking for an entry in this form:
spanning-tree <port-list> priority <priority-multiplier>
For example, configuring port 2 with a priority multiplier of “3” results in this
line in the show running-config output:
spanning-tree B2 priority 3

Release K.12.05 includes the following enhancement:
■
Enhancement (PR_1000408960) — RADIUS-Assigned GVRP VLANs enhancement. For
more information, see “How RADIUS-Based Authentication Affects VLAN Operation” below.
How RADIUS-Based Authentication Affects VLAN Operation
Using a RADIUS server to authenticate clients, you can provide port-level security protection from
unauthorized network access for the following authentication methods:
■
802.1X: Port-based or client-based access control to open a port for client access after
authenticating valid user credentials.
■
MAC address: Authenticates a device’s MAC address to grant access to the network.
■
Web-browser interface: Authenticates clients for network access using a Web page for user
login.
36
Enhancements
Release K.12.05 Enhancements
Note
You can use 802.1X (port-based or client-based) authentication and either Web or MAC authentication
at the same time on a port, with a maximum of 32 clients allowed on the port. (The default is one
client.) Web authentication and MAC authentication are mutually exclusive on the same port. Also,
you must disable LACP on ports configured for any of these authentication methods. For more
information, refer to the “Configuring Port-Based and User-Based Access Control (802.1X)” and “Web
and MAC Authentication” chapters of the Access Security Guide.
VLAN Assignment on a ProCurve Port
Following client authentication, VLAN configurations on a ProCurve port are managed as follows
when you use 802.1X, MAC, or Web authentication:
■
The port resumes membership in any tagged VLANs for which it is already assigned in the
switch configuration. Tagged VLAN membership allows a port to be a member of multiple
VLANs simultaneously.
■
The port is temporarily assigned as a member of an untagged (static or dynamic) VLAN for
use during the client session according to the following order of options.
a.
The port joins the VLAN to which it has been assigned by a RADIUS server during client
authentication.
b. If RADIUS authentication does not include assigning the port to a VLAN, then the switch
assigns the port to the authorized-client VLAN configured for the authentication method.
c.
If the port does not have an authorized-client VLAN configured, but is configured for
membership in an untagged VLAN, the switch assigns the port to this untagged VLAN.
Operating Notes
■
37
During client authentication, a port assigned to a VLAN by a RADIUS server or an
authorized-client VLAN configuration is an untagged member of the VLAN for the duration
of the authenticated session. This applies even if the port is also configured in the switch as
a tagged member of the same VLAN. The following restrictions apply:
•
If the port is assigned as a member of an untagged static VLAN, the VLAN must already
be configured on the switch. If the static VLAN configuration does not exist, the
authentication fails.
•
If the port is assigned as a member of an untagged dynamic VLAN that was learned
through GVRP, the dynamic VLAN configuration must exist on the switch at the time of
authentication and GVRP-learned dynamic VLANs for port-access authentication must
be enabled
Enhancements
Release K.12.05 Enhancements
If the dynamic VLAN does not exist or if you have not enabled the use of a dynamic VLAN
for authentication sessions on the switch, the authentication fails.
■
To enable the use of a GVRP-learned (dynamic) VLAN as the untagged VLAN used in an
authentication session, enter the aaa port-access gvrp-vlans command, as described in
“Enabling the Use of GVRP-Learned Dynamic VLANs in Authentication Sessions” on page 42.
■
Enabling the use of dynamic VLANs in an authentication session offers the following benefits:
•
You avoid the need of having static VLANs pre-configured on the switch.
•
You can centralize the administration of user accounts (including user VLAN IDs) on a
RADIUS server.
For information on how to enable the switch to dynamically create 802.1Q-compliant VLANs on
links to other devices using the GARP VLAN Registration Protocol (GVRP), refer to the “GVRP”
chapter in the Advanced Traffic Management Guide.
■
For an authentication session to proceed, a ProCurve port must be an untagged member of
the (static or dynamic) VLAN assigned by the RADIUS server (or an authorized-client VLAN
configuration). The port temporarily drops any current untagged VLAN membership.
If the port is not already a member of the RADIUS-assigned (static or dynamic) untagged VLAN,
the switch temporarily reassigns the port as an untagged member of the required VLAN (for the
duration of the session). At the same time, if the ProCurve port is already configured as an
untagged member of a different VLAN, the port loses access to the other VLAN for the duration
of the session. (A port can be an untagged member of only one VLAN at a time.)
When the authentication session ends, the switch removes the temporary untagged VLAN
assignment and re-activates the temporarily disabled, untagged VLAN assignment.
■
If GVRP is already enabled on the switch, the temporary untagged (static or dynamic) VLAN
created on the port for the authentication session is advertised as an existing VLAN.
If this temporary VLAN assignment causes the switch to disable a different untagged static or
dynamic VLAN configured on the port (as described in the preceding bullet and in “Example of
Untagged VLAN Assignment in a RADIUS-Based Authentication Session” on page 39), the
disabled VLAN assignment is not advertised. When the authentication session ends, the switch:
•
Removes the temporary untagged VLAN assignment and stops advertising it.
•
Re-activates and resumes advertising the temporarily disabled, untagged VLAN assignment.
■
If you modify a VLAN ID configuration on a port during an 802.1X, MAC, or Web
authentication session, the changes do not take effect until the session ends.
■
When a switch port is configured with RADIUS-based authentication to accept multiple
802.1X and/or MAC or Web authentication client sessions, all authenticated clients must use
the same port-based, untagged VLAN membership assigned for the earliest, currently active
client session.
38
Enhancements
Release K.12.05 Enhancements
Therefore, on a port where one or more authenticated client sessions are already running, all
such clients are on the same untagged VLAN. If a RADIUS server subsequently authenticates a
new client, but attempts to re-assign the port to a different, untagged VLAN than the one already
in use for the previously existing, authenticated client sessions, the connection for the new client
will fail. For more on this topic, refer to “802.1X Open VLAN Mode” in the “Configuring Port-Based
and Client-Based Access Control (802.1X)” chapter in the Access Security Guide.
Example of Untagged VLAN Assignment in a RADIUS-Based Authentication Session
The following example shows how an untagged static VLAN is temporarily assigned to a port for use
during an 802.1X authentication session. In the example, an 802.1X-aware client on port A2 has been
authenticated by a RADIUS server for access to VLAN 22. However, port A2 is not configured as a
member of VLAN 22 but as a member of untagged VLAN 33 as shown in Figure 1.
Scenario: An authorized
802.1X client requires
access to VLAN 22 from
port A2. However,
access to VLAN 22 is
blocked (not untagged
or tagged) on port A2
and VLAN 33 is untagged
on port A2.
Figure 1. Example of an Active VLAN Configuration in the Menu Interface View
In Figure 1, if RADIUS authorizes an 802.1X client on port A2 with the requirement that the client
use VLAN 22, then:
■
VLAN 22 becomes available as Untagged on port A2 for the duration of the session.
■
VLAN 33 becomes unavailable to port A2 for the duration of the session (because there can
be only one untagged VLAN on any port).
To view the temporary VLAN assignment as a change in the active configuration, use the show vlan
<vlan-id> command as shown in Figure 2, where <vlan-id> is the (static or dynamic) VLAN used in the
authenticated client session.

Enhancements
Release K.12.05 Enhancements
In the show command output, port A2 is temporarily
configured as untagged on VLAN 22 for an 802.1X session.
This temporary configuration change is necessary to
accommodate an 802.1X client’s access, authenticated by
a RADIUS server, in which the server included an
instruction to assign the client session to VLAN 22.
Note: In the current VLAN configuration ( Figure 1), port
A2 is only listed as a member of VLAN 22 in show vlan 22
output when an 802.1X session with an authenticated
client is active. Otherwise, port A2 is not listed.
Figure 2. Active Configuration for VLAN 22 Temporarily Changes for the 802.1X Session
However, as shown in Figure 1, because VLAN 33 is configured as untagged on port A2 and because
a port can be untagged on only one VLAN, port A2 loses access to VLAN 33 for the duration of the
802.1X session on VLAN 22.
You can verify the temporary loss of access to VLAN 33 by entering the show vlan 33 command as
shown in Figure 3.
Although port A2 is
configured as Untagged on
VLAN 33 (Figure Figure 1),
port A2 is not listed in show
vlan 33 output during the
802.1X session that uses
VLAN 22 in Untagged mode.
However, when the 802.1X
session on VLAN 22 ends,
the active configuration
restores port A2 as an
untagged member of
VLAN 33.
Figure 3. Active Configuration for VLAN 33 Temporarily Drops Port 22 for the 802.1X Session
40
Enhancements
Release K.12.05 Enhancements
When the 802.1X client session on port A2 ends, the port removes the temporary untagged VLAN
membership. The static VLAN (VLAN 33) that is “permanently” configured as untagged on the
port becomes available again. Therefore, when the RADIUS-authenticated 802.1X session on
port A2 ends, VLAN 22 access on port A2 also ends, and the untagged VLAN 33 access on port
A2 is restored as shown in Figure 4.
When the 802.1X session
on VLAN 22 ends, the
active configuration
restores VLAN 33 on
port A2.

Enabling the Use of GVRP-Learned Dynamic VLANs in Authentication Sessions
Syntax:
aaa port-access gvrp-vlans
Enables the use of dynamic VLANs (learned through GVRP) in the temporary
untagged VLAN assigned by a RADIUS server on an authenticated port in an
802.1X, MAC, or Web authentication session.
Enter the no form of this command to disable the use of GVRP-learned VLANs in
an authentication session.
For information on how to enable a switch to dynamically create
802.1Q-compliant VLANs, refer to the “GVRP” chapter in the Access Security
Guide.
Notes:
1. If a port is assigned as a member of an untagged dynamic VLAN, the dynamic
VLAN configuration must exist at the time of authentication and GVRP for
port-access authentication must be enabled on the switch.
If the dynamic VLAN does not exist or if you have not enabled the use of a dynamic
VLAN for authentication sessions on the switch, the authentication fails.
2. After you enable dynamic VLAN assignment in an authentication session, it
is recommended that you use the interface unknown-vlans command on a per-port
basis to prevent denial-of-service attacks. The interface unknown-vlans command
allows you to:
• Disable the port from sending advertisements of existing GVRP-created VLANs
on the switch.
• Drop all GVRP advertisements received on the port.
For more information, refer to the “GVRP” chapter in the Advanced Traffic
Management Guide.
3. If you disable the use of dynamic VLANs in an authentication session using
the no aaa port-access gvrp-vlans command, client sessions that were authenticated
with a dynamic VLAN continue and are not deauthenticated.
(This behavior differs form how static VLAN assignment is handled in an
authentication session. If you remove the configuration of the static VLAN used
to create a temporary client session, the 802.1X, MAC, or Web authenticated client
is deauthenticated.)
However, if a RADIUS-configured dynamic VLAN used for an authentication
session is deleted from the switch through normal GVRP operation (for example,
if no GVRP advertisements for the VLAN are received on any switch port),
authenticated clients using this VLAN are deauthenticated.
For information on how static and dynamic VLANs are assigned in a
RADIUS-based 802.1X, MAC, or Web authentication session, refer to the “How
RADIUS-Based Authentication Affects VLAN Operation” section in the “RADIUS
Authentication and Accounting” chapter of the Access Security Guide.

Release K.12.06 Enhancements
Release K.12.06 Enhancements
Release K.12.06 includes the following enhancement:
■
Enhancement (PR_1000308332) — Passwords (hashed) can be saved to the configuration
file.
Saving Security Credentials in a Configuration File
In software release K.12.06 and greater, you can store and view the following security settings in the
running-config file associated with the current software image by entering the include-credentials
command. Earlier software releases store these security configuration settings only in internal flash
memory and do not allow you to include and view them in the running-config file.
■
Local manager and operator passwords and (optional) user names that control access to a
management session on the switch through the CLI, menu interface, or Web browser
interface
■
SNMP security credentials used by network management stations to access a switch,
including authentication and privacy passwords
■
Port-access passwords and usernames used as 802.1X authentication credentials for access
to the switch
■
TACACS+ encryption keys used to encrypt packets and secure authentication sessions with
TACACS+ servers
■
RADIUS shared secret (encryption) keys used to encrypt packets and secure authentication
sessions with RADIUS servers
■
Secure Shell (SSH) public keys used to authenticate SSH clients that try to connect to the
switch.
Benefits of Saving Security Credentials
The benefits of including and saving security credentials in a configuration file are as follows:
■
After making changes to security parameters in the running configuration, you can
experiment with the new configuration and, if necessary, view the new security settings
during the session. After verifying the configuration, you can then save it permanently by
writing the settings to the startup-config file.
■
By permanently saving a switch’s security credentials in a configuration file, you can upload
the file to a TFTP server or Xmodem host, and later download the file to the ProCurve
switches on which you want to use the same security settings without having to manually
configure the settings (except for SNMPv3 user parameters) on each switch.
43
Enhancements
Release K.12.06 Enhancements
■
By storing different security settings in different files, you can test different security
configurations when you first download a new software version that supports multiple
configuration files by changing the configuration file used when you reboot the switch.
For more information about how to experiment with, upload, download, and use configuration files
with different software versions, refer to the following chapters:
■
“Switch Memory and Configuration” and “File Transfers” in the Management and
Configuration Guide
■
“Configuring Username and Password Security” in the Access Security Guide
Security Settings that Can Be Saved
This section describes the security settings that can be saved to a configuration file in software release
K.12.06 and greater:
■
Local manager and operator passwords and user names
■
SNMP security credentials, including SNMPv1 community names and SNMPv3 usernames,
authentication, and privacy settings
■
802.1X port-access passwords and usernames
■
TACACS+ encryption keys
■
RADIUS shared secret (encryption) keys
■
Public keys of SSH-enabled management stations that are used by the switch to authenticate
SSH clients that try to connect to the switch
Local Manager and Operator Passwords
In software releases earlier than K.12.06, the manager and operator passwords and user names used
to start a management session on the switch are treated as follows:
■
You set the passwords and (optional) user names using the CLI or menu interface as
described in “Configuring Local Password Security” in the Access Security Guide.
■
Only the following information is saved to the running configuration:
password manager [user-name <name>]
password operator [user-name <name>]
44
Enhancements
Release K.12.06 Enhancements
In software release K.12.06 and greater, you cannot view the configured local password settings in
plain text. However, by entering the include-credentials command described later, you can view a
hash of the local password settings in the running-config file, in the format:
password manager [user-name <name>] <hash-type> <pass-hash>
password operator [user-name <name>] <hash-type> <pass-hash>
Where:
<name> is an alphanumeric string for the user name assigned to the manager or operator.
<hash-type> indicates the type of hash algorithm used: SHA-1.
<pass-hash> is the SHA-1 authentication protocol’s hash of the password.
For example, a manager username and password may be stored in a running-config file as follows:
password manager user-name Spock SHA1
2fd4e1c67a2d28fced849ee1bb76e7391b93eb12
If you permanently save password configurations in the startup-config file by entering the write
memory command, the passwords take effect when a switch boots with the software version
associated with the configuration file.
Caution
If a startup configuration file does not contain a manager or operator password, the switch will not
have password protection and can be accessed through Telnet, the serial port, or Web interface with
full manager privileges.
Password Command
In software release K.12.06 and greater, the password command in the CLI is enhanced to support the
following syntax:
Syntax:
[no] password <manager | operator | port-access> [user-name <name>] <hash-type> <password>
Where:
■
manager configures access to the switch with manager-level privileges.
■
operator configures access to the switch with operator-level privileges.
■
port-access configures access to the switch through 802.1X authentication with
operator-level privileges.
■
user-name <name> is the (optional) text string of the user name associated with the password.
45
Enhancements
Release K.12.06 Enhancements
■
The <hash-type> parameter specifies the type of algorithm (if any) used to hash the password.
Valid values are plaintext or sha-1.
■
The <password> parameter is the clear ASCII text string or SHA-1 hash of the password.
You can enter a manager/operator password in clear ASCII text or hashed format, while the
port-access password must be clear ASCII text only. Manager and operator passwords are
displayed and saved in a configuration file only in hashed format; port-access passwords are
displayed and saved only as plain ASCII text.
After you enter the complete command syntax that includes the password, the password is set and
you are not prompted to enter the password a second time.
This command enhancement allows you to configure manager, operator, and 802.1X port-access
passwords using the CLI in only one step (instead of entering the password command and then being
prompted twice to enter the actual password, as in software releases earlier than K.12.06).
■
For more information about configuring local manager and operator passwords, refer to the
“Configuring Username and Password Security” chapter in the Access Security Guide.
■
For more information about configuring a port-access password for 802.1X client
authentication, see “802.1X Port-Access Credentials” on page 47.
SNMP Security Credentials
In software releases earlier than K.12.06, SNMP security credentials are saved in a configuration file
as follows:
■
SNMPv1 community names and write-access settings are saved as shown in the following
example:
snmp-server community "vulcan" Unrestricted
■
SNMPv3 authorization and privacy protocols and passwords used with each SNMPv3 user
are not saved. However, SNMPv3 user names are saved; for example:
snmpv3 user "initial"
In software release K.12.06 and greater, SNMPv1 community names and write-access settings, and
SNMPv3 usernames are still saved in the running configuration when you enter the include-credentials
command.
In addition, the following SNMPv3 security parameters are also saved:
snmpv3 user “<name>" [auth <md5|sha> “<auth-pass>”] [priv “<priv-pass>"]
Where:
<name> is the name of an SNMPv3 management station.
auth <md5 | sha> is the (optional) authentication method used for the management station.
46
Enhancements
Release K.12.06 Enhancements
<auth-pass> is the hashed authentication password used with the configured authentication method.
priv “<priv-pass>” is the (optional) hashed privacy password used by a privacy protocol to encrypt
SNMPv3 messages between the switch and the station.
The following example shows the additional security credentials for SNMPv3 users that can be saved
in a running-config file:
snmpv3 user boris \
auth md5 “9e4cfef901f21cf9d21079debeca453” \
priv “82ca4dc99e782db1a1e914f5d8f16824”
snmpv3 user alan \
auth sha “8db06202b8f293e9bc0c00ac98cf91099708ecdf” \
priv “5bc4313e9fd7c2953aaea9406764fe8bb629a538”
Figure 5. Security Credentials for SNMPv3
Although you can enter an SNMPv3 authentication or privacy password in either clear ASCII text or
the SHA-1 hash of the password, the password is displayed and saved in a configuration file only in
hashed format, as shown in the preceding example.
For more information about the configuration of SNMP security parameters, refer to the “Configuring
for Network Management Applications” chapter in the Management and Configuration Guide.
802.1X Port-Access Credentials
In software release K.12.06 and greater, 802.1X authenticator (port-access) credentials can be stored
in a configuration file.
802.1X authenticator credentials are used by a port to authenticate supplicants requesting a
point-to-point connection to the switch. 802.1X supplicant credentials are used by the switch to
establish a point-to-point connection to a port on another 802.1X-aware switch. Only 802.1X authenticator credentials are stored in a configuration file. For information about how to use 802.1X on the
switch both as an authenticator and a supplicant, refer to the “Configuring Port-Based and
Client-Based Access Control (802.1X)” chapter in the Access Security Guide.
In software release K.12.06 and greater, the local password configured with the password command
is no longer accepted as an 802.1X authenticator credential. A new configuration command (password
port-access) is introduced to configure the local operator username and password used as 802.1X
authentication credentials for access to the switch.
The password port-access values are now configured separately from the manager and operator
passwords configured with the password manager and password operator commands and used for
management access to the switch. For information on the new password command syntax, see
“Password Command” on page 45.
47
Enhancements
Release K.12.06 Enhancements
After you enter the complete password port-access command syntax, the password is set. You are not
prompted to enter the password a second time.
TACACS+ Encryption Key Authentication
You can use TACACS+ servers to authenticate users who request access to a switch through Telnet
(remote) or console (local) sessions. TACACS+ uses an authentication hierarchy consisting of:
■
Remote passwords assigned in a TACACS+ server
■
Local manager and operator passwords configured on the switch.
When you configure TACACS+, the switch first tries to contact a designated TACACS+ server for
authentication services. If the switch fails to connect to any TACACS+ server, it defaults to its own
locally assigned passwords for authentication control if it has been configured to do so.
For improved security, you can configure a global or server-specific encryption key that encrypts
data in TACACS+ packets transmitted between a switch and a RADIUS server during authentication
sessions. The key configured on the switch must match the encryption key configured in each
TACACS+ server application. (The encryption key is sometimes referred to as “shared secret” or
“secret” key.) For more information, refer to the “TACACS+ Authentication” chapter in the Access
Security Guide.
In software releases earlier than K.12.06, the global and server-specific TACACS+ encryption keys
cannot be saved in a configuration file that can be copied from the switch. These keys are stored only
in flash memory and can be viewed by using the show tacacs command.
In software release K.12.06 and greater, TACACS+ shared secret (encryption) keys can be saved in
a configuration file with the following syntax:
tacacs-server key <keystring>
Where:
<keystring> is the encryption key (in clear text) used for secure communication with all or a specific
TACACS+ server.
RADIUS Shared-Secret Key Authentication
You can use RADIUS servers as the primary authentication method for users who request access to
a switch through Telnet, SSH, Web interface, console, or port-access (802.1X). The shared secret key
is a text string used to encrypt data in RADIUS packets transmitted between a switch and a RADIUS
server during authentication sessions. Both the switch and the server have a copy of the key; the key
is never transmitted across the network. For more information, refer to the “RADIUS Authentication
and Accounting” chapter in the Access Security Guide.
In software releases earlier than K.12.06, the global and server-specific RADIUS encryption keys
cannot be saved in a configuration file that can be copied from the switch. These keys are stored only
in flash memory and can be viewed by using the show radius command.
48
Enhancements
Release K.12.06 Enhancements
In software release K.12.06 and greater, RADIUS shared secret (encryption) keys can be saved in a
configuration file with the following syntax:
radius-server key <keystring>
Where:
<keystring> is the encryption key (in clear text) used for secure communication with all or a specific
RADIUS server.
SSH Client Public-Key Authentication
Secure Shell version 2 (SSHv2) is used by ProCurve switches to provide remote access to
SSH-enabled management stations. Although SSH provides Telnet-like functions, unlike Telnet, SSH
provides encrypted, two-way authenticated transactions. SSH client public-key authentication is one
of the types of authentication used.
Client public-key authentication uses one or more public keys (from clients) that must be stored on
the switch. Only a client with a private key that matches a public key stored on the switch can gain
access at the manager or operator level. For more information about how to configure and use SSH
public keys to authenticate SSH clients that try to connect to the switch, refer to the “Configuring
Secure Shell” chapter in the Access Security Guide.
In software releases earlier than K.12.06, client public-keys that are used to authenticate SSH clients
are only stored in flash memory, not in the running-config file. You can view the SSH public keys
stored on a switch by entering the show crypto client-public-key command. The only SSH security
credential that is stored in the running configuration are the following commands:
aaa authentication ssh login public-key
aaa authentication ssh enable public-key
■
The aaa authentication ssh login public-key command allows operator access using SSH
public-key authentication.
■
The aaa authentication ssh enable public-key command allows manager access using SSH
public-key authentication.
In software release K.12.06 and greater, the SSH security credential that is stored in the running
configuration is the syntax of the ip ssh public-key command used to authenticate SSH clients for
manager or operator access, along with the hashed content of each SSH client public-key. The syntax
of the ip ssh public-key command is as follows:
ip ssh public-key <manager|operator> <keystring>
Where:
manager allows manager-level access using SSH public-key authentication.
operator allows operator-level access using SSH public-key authentication.
<keystring> is a legal SSHv2 (RSA or DSA) public key. The text string for the public key must be a
single quoted token.
49
Enhancements
Release K.12.06 Enhancements
If the keystring contains double-quotes, it can be quoted with single quotes ('keystring'). The following
restrictions for a keystring apply:
■
A keystring cannot contain both single and double quotes.
■
A keystring cannot have extra characters, such as a blank space or a new line. However, to
improve readability, you can add a backlash at the end of each line.
Note
In software release K.12.01 and earlier, you can add up to ten SSH client public-keys to the switch
only by using the copy command; for example:
$ copy tftp public-key ip-addr filename <manager|operator> [append]
If you enter the optional append keyword, the transmitted public-keys are added to existing SSH
public-key configurations. If you omit the append keyword, the transmitted keys overwrite existing
SSH public-key configurations.
In software release K.12.06 and greater, the ip ssh public-key command allows you to configure only
one SSH client public-key at a time. (This command behavior differs from the copy command, which
in earlier software releases allows you to load up to ten SSH client public-key configurations at once
if they are stored in a single file on a TFTP server.) Therefore, the ip ssh public-key command behavior
includes an implicit append that never overwrites existing public-key configurations on a running
switch.
In all software releases, if you download a software configuration file that contains SSH client
public-key configurations, the downloaded public-keys overwrite any existing keys, as happens with
any other configured values.
To display the SSH public-key configurations (72 characters per line) stored in a configuration file,
enter the show config or show running-config command. The following example shows the SSH public
keys configured for manager access, along with the hashed content of each SSH client public-key,
that are stored in a configuration file:

Enabling the Storage and Display of Security Credentials
To enable the security settings described in “Security Settings that Can Be Saved” on page 44 to be
included and viewed in the running configuration on the switch, enter the include-credentials
command.
Syntax: [no] include-credentials
Enables the inclusion and display of the currently configured manager and operator
usernames and passwords, RADIUS shared secret keys, SNMP and 802.1X authenticator
(port-access) security credentials, and SSH client public-keys in the running
configuration. (Earlier software releases store these security configuration settings only
in internal flash memory and do not allow you to include and view them in the
running-config file.)
To view the currently configured security settings in the running configuration, enter
one of the following commands:
• show running-config: Displays the configuration settings in the current running-config
file.
• write terminal: Displays the configuration settings in the current running-config file.
For more information, refer to the “Switch Memory and Configuration” chapter in the
Management and Configuration Guide.
To copy the contents of the running-config file from the switch to a USB flash memory
device, enter the copy running-config usb command. For more information, refer to the
“File Transfers” appendix in the Management and Configuration Guide.
The “no” form of the command disables only the display and copying of these security
parameters from the running configuration, while the security settings remain active
in the running configuration.
Default: The security credentials described in “Security Settings that Can Be Saved” on
page 44 are not stored in the running configuration.

Operating Notes
Caution
■
When you first enter the include-credentials command to save the additional security
credentials to the running configuration, these settings are moved from internal storage on
the switch to the running-config file.
You are prompted by a warning message to perform a write memory operation to save the security
credentials to the startup configuration. The message reminds you that if you do not save the
current values of these security settings from the running configuration, they will be lost the next
time you boot the switch and will revert to the values stored in the startup configuration.
■
When you boot a switch with a startup configuration file that contains the include-credentials
command, any security credentials that are stored in internal flash memory are ignored and
erased. The switch will load only the security settings in the startup configuration file, if any.
■
In software releases earlier than K.12.06, configuration changes to some security credentials
(described in “Security Settings that Can Be Saved” on page 44) are applied immediately and
saved in internal storage (flash memory) on the switch. They do not require you to enter the
write memory command to permanently save them in the startup configuration.
However, in software release K.12.06 and greater, this switch behavior changes. Security settings
are no longer automatically saved internally in flash memory and loaded with the startup
configuration when a switch boots up. The configuration of all security credentials requires that
you use the write memory command to save them in the startup configuration in order for them
to not be lost when you log off or reboot the switch. A warning message reminds you to
permanently save a security setting, which was formerly automatically saved in internal flash,
after you configure it.
■
After you enter the include-credentials command, the currently configured manager and
operator usernames and passwords, RADIUS shared secret keys, SNMP and 802.1X
authenticator (port-access) security credentials, and SSH client public-keys are saved in the
running configuration.
Use the no include-credentials command to disable the display and copying of these security
parameters from the running configuration (using the show running-config and copy running-config

After you enter the include-credentials command, you can toggle between the non-display and

After you permanently save security configurations to the current startup-config file using
the write memory command, you can view and manage security settings with the following
commands:
•
show config: Displays the configuration settings in the current startup-config file.
•
copy config <source-filename> config <target-filename>: Makes a local copy of an existing
startup-config file by copying the contents of the startup-config file in one memory slot
to a new startup-config file in another, empty memory slot.
•
copy config tftp: Uploads a configuration file from the switch to a TFTP server.
•
copy tftp config: Downloads a configuration file from a TFTP server to the switch.
•
copy config xmodem: Uploads a configuration file from the switch to an Xmodem host.
•
copy xmodem config: Downloads a configuration file from an Xmodem host to the switch.
For more information, refer to the “Switch Memory and Configuration” chapter in the Management and Configuration Guide.
■
■
The switch supports the storage of up to three configuration files. Each configuration file
contains its own security credentials and these security configurations may differ. It is the
responsibility of the system administrator to ensure that the appropriate security credentials
are contained in the configuration file that is loaded with each software image.
•
When you load a configuration file associated with a software release earlier than K.12.06
on a switch running software release K.12.06 or greater, all security credentials in the
configuration file are supported.
•
When you load a configuration file associated with a software release K.12.06 or greater
on a switch running a software release earlier than K.12.06, all security credentials saved
with the include-credentials command are rejected as invalid configurations by the earlier
software.
If you have already enabled the storage of security credentials (including local manager and
operator passwords) by entering the include-credentials command, the Reset-on-clear option
is disabled. When you press the Clear button on the front panel, the manager and operator
usernames and passwords are deleted from the running configuration. However, the switch
does not reboot after the local passwords are erased. (The reset-on-clear option normally
reboots the switch when you press the Clear button.)
For more information about the Reset-on-clear option and other front-panel security features,
refer to the “Configuring Username and Password Security” chapter in the Access Security
Guide.

If you upgrade ProCurve software on a switch from an earlier software release to software
release K.12.06 or greater and then enter the include-credentials command, security
passwords are managed as follows:
•
The manager password (if any) in the earlier software version is copied into the running
configuration. The other two configuration files, if configured, will not have a manager
password configured.
•
The operator password (if any) in the earlier software version is copied into the running
configuration. The other two configuration files, if configured, will not have an operator
password configured.
•
No port-access password for 802.1X authentication is configured. The operator password in the earlier software version is not automatically copied as the new port-access
password. To configure password access to the switch through 802.1X authentication,
use the password port-access command as described in “Password Command” on page
45. (It is not recommended that you use the same password for operator console access
and for 802.1X port-access authentication.)
•
The SSH client public-keys for manager and operator access are copied from flash
memory into the running configuration.
•
The RADIUS shared secret and TACACS+ encryption keys for access to authentication
servers are already included in the running configuration.
•
SNMPv3 user credentials are already included in the running configuration.
If you downgrade ProCurve software on a switch and use a software release earlier than
K.12.06, security passwords are managed as follows:
•
Because SNMPv3 user credentials, RADIUS shared secret keys, and TACACS+ encryption keys are already included in the startup configuration, these security credentials
are not lost. They continue to be used in the earlier software version.
•
The local manager and operator passwords are not recognized by an earlier software
version and are not saved in the running configuration. However, passwords in inactive
configuration files remain stored there. Although they are not displayed in show config
command output, they are not automatically erased.
•
Although the hashed SSH client public-keys (for manager and operator access) are not
recognized by an earlier software version, they remain stored so that they are immediately reloaded if you upgrade back to software release K.12.06 or greater.
•
As in a software upgrade, no port-access (operator) password for 802.1X authentication
is saved from software release K.12.06 or greater.
Enhancements
Release K.12.06 Enhancements
Restrictions
The following restrictions apply when you enable security credentials to be stored in the running
configuration with the include-credentials command:
■
The private keys of an SSH host cannot be stored in the running configuration. Only the
public keys used to authenticate SSH clients can be stored. An SSH host’s private key is only
stored internally; for example, on the switch or on an SSH client device.
■
SNMPv3 security credentials saved to a configuration file on a switch cannot be used after
downloading the file on a different switch. The SNMPv3 security parameters in the file are
only supported when loaded on the same switch for which they were configured.
The reason is that when SNMPv3 security credentials are saved to a configuration file, they are
saved with the engine ID of the switch as shown here:
snmpv3 engine-id 00:00:00:0b:00:00:08:00:09:01:10:01
If you download a configuration file with saved SNMPv3 security credentials on a switch, when
the switch loads the file with the current software version, the SNMPv3 engine ID value in the
downloaded file must match the engine ID of the switch in order for the SNMPv3 users to be
configured with the authentication and privacy passwords in the file. (To display the engine ID
of a switch, enter the show snmpv3 engine-id command. To configure authentication and privacy
passwords for SNMPv3 users, enter the snmpv3 user command.)
If the engine ID in the saved SNMPv3 security settings in a downloaded configuration file does
not match the engine ID of the switch:
•
The SNMPv3 users are configured, but without the authentication and privacy passwords. You must manually configure these passwords on the switch before the users
can have SNMPv3 access with the privileges you want.
•
Only the snmpv3 user <user_name> credentials from the SNMPv3 settings in a downloaded
configuration file are loaded on the switch; for example:
snmpv3 user boris
snmpv3 user alan
■
In software release K.12.06 and greater, you can store 802.1X authenticator (port-access)
credentials in a configuration file. However, 802.1X supplicant credentials cannot be stored.
■
In software release K.12.06 and greater, the local operator password configured with the
password command is no longer accepted as an 802.1X authenticator credential. A new
configuration command (password port-access) is introduced to configure the username and
password used as 802.1X authentication credentials for access to the switch. You can store
the password port-access values in the running configuration by using the include-credentials
command.
56
Enhancements
Release K.12.07 Enhancements
Note that the password port-access values are configured separately from local operator username and passwords that are configured with the password operator command and used for
management access to the switch. For more information about how to use the password
port-access command to configure operator passwords and usernames for 802.1X authentication,
refer to the “Configuring Port-Based and Client-Based Access Control (802.1X)” chapter in the
Access Security Guide.

Configuring a System Contact and Location for the Switch
Both the system-contact and the system-location fields allow up to 255 characters when configured
through the CLI or the Web browser interface.
CLI Command
Syntax: snmp-server [contact <system-contact>] [location <system-location>]
where < system-contact > and <system-location > are ASCII strings up to 255 characters each.
Web Browser Interface
Using the Web browser interface for the switch, click the Configuration tab, and select System Info to
access the System Location and System Contact fields. In each field, you can enter ASCII strings up to
255 characters each. You can view all the characters by using the cursor to scroll through the field.
Menu Interface
Unlike the CLI command and the Web browser interface, the Menu interface will only allow
configuration of System Contact and System Location strings of up to 48 characters. However, if a
System Contact or System Location string length configured through the CLI command or Web
browser interface exceeds 48 characters, the Menu fields will display “+” followed by the last 47
characters of the string. Use the CLI show running, show config, or show system-information commands

Release K.12.15 includes the following enhancement:
■
Enhancement (PR_1000427592) — This enhancement adds the client’s IP address to the
RADIUS accounting packets sent to the RADIUS server by the switch.
The IP address of the client is included in the RADIUS accounting packet sent by the switch to
the RADIUS server. The client obtains the IP address through DHCP, so DHCP snooping must
be enabled for the VLAN of which the client is a member.
■
Enhancement (PR_1000428642) — The SNMP v2c describes two different
notification-type PDUs: traps and informs. Prior to this software release, only the trap’s
sub-type was supported. This enhancement adds support for informs.
Send SNMP v2c Informs
Enabling and Configuring SNMP Informs
You can use the snmp-server informs command (SNMPv2c and SNMPv3 versions) to send notifications
when certain events occur. When an SNMP Manager receives an informs request, it can send an SNMP
response back to the sending agent. This lets the agent know that the informs request reached its
destination and that traps can be sent successfully to that destination.
Informs requests can be sent several times until a response is received from the SNMP manager or
the configured retry limits are reached. The request may also timeout.
60
Enhancements
Release K.12.15 Enhancements
To enable SNMP informs, enter this command:
Syntax: [no] snmp-server enable informs
Enables or disables the informs option for SNMP.
Default: Disabled
To configure SNMP informs request options, use the following commands.
Syntax:
[no] snmp-server informs [retries<retries>] [timeout<seconds>] [pending <pending>]
Allows you to configure options for SNMP informs requests.
retries: Maximum number of times to resend an informs request. Default: 3
timeout: Number of seconds to wait for an acknowledgement before resending the
informs request. Default: 30 seconds
pending: Maximum number of informs waiting for acknowledgement at any one
time. When the maximum configured number is reached, older pending informs
are discarded. Default: 25
To specify the manager that receives the informs request, use the snmp-server host command.
Syntax: snmp-server host < ip-address >[<traps | informs>] [version <1 | 2c | 3>]< community-string >
Using community name and destination IP address, this command
designates a destination network-management station for receiving SNMP
event log messages from the switch. If you do not specify the event level,
then the switch does not send event log messages as traps. You can specify
up to 10 trap receivers (network management stations).
Note: In all cases, the switch sends any threshold trap(s) or informs to the
network management station(s) that explicitly set the threshold(s).
[traps | informs>]
Select whether SNMP traps or informs are sent to this management station.
[version <1 | 2c | 3>]
Select the version of SNMP being used.
Note: SNMP informs are supported on version 2c or 3 only.

Options for sending switch Event Log messages to a trap receiver. The levels
specified with these options apply only to Event Log messages, and not to
threshold traps.

Description
Management and Configuration Guide
PoE Power Allocation Methods: Allows you to manually allocate the amount of PoE power for a port by either
its class or a defined value.
USB Secure Autorun: Helps ease the configuration of ProCurve switches by providing a way to
auto-execute CLI commands from a USB flash drive. Note that the ability
to create a valid AutoRun file also requires ProCurve Manager. For details,
see the section on “USB Autorun” in the Appendix on “File Transfers”.
SNMP Traps: Allow you to configure the switch to send network security and link-change
notifications to configured trap receivers. More error conditions can be
reported and logged to help resolve security threats and network issues.
MAC-based Remote Mirroring: Allows you to use MAC as a criteria in selecting traffic that needs to be
monitored in addition to current port, ACL, and direction criteria.
Show Command Changes: The show power-management CLI command has been changed to show
power-over-ethernet. You can use this command and the show power slot
<slot-id> to display information about PoE power.
The show system-information CLI command syntax has been changed to
show system with additional options to display details of system components: fans, information, power-supply, and temperature.
Scalability: Increased max trunks (60); and increased helper address (4k). For scalability values for VLANs, hardware, ARP, and routing, see the new Appendix
titled “Scalability: IP Address, VLAN, and Routing Maximum Values”.
Advanced Traffic Management Guide
STP Root Guard: STP root guard allows user to prevent changes to the root bridge and thus
preventing malicious attackers from modifying the root switch and
ensuring that the STP topology maintain the optimal setting.
QinQ: QinQ (provider bridging) has been added to allow frames from multiple
customers to be forwarded through another topology (provider network)
using service VLANs or S-VLANs. For more information, see the new “QinQ
Provider Bridging” chapter.

Access and Security Guide
Dynamic Configuration Arbiter: ProCurve provides different methods (for example, CLI, SNMP, or
IDM/RADIUS) to configure network and security parameters and respond
to threats. This feature allows you to determine the client-specific parameters that are assigned in an authentication session by applying or
removing them as needed in a specified hierarchy of precedence.
RADIUS Attributes: Additional RADIUS attributes included with this release:
• Change of authorization: allows changes to user service without
re-authentication
• Vendor-ID: allows Microsoft RADIUS servers to use vendor ID as part of
the policy
• Capability advertisement: allows the switch to advertise its capability to
the RADIUS server
• Session termination: allows the switch to report to the RADIUS server
the reason a session is terminated
For more information, see the section on “Additional RADIUS Attributes”
in the chapter on “RADIUS Authentication and Accounting”.
RADIUS VLAN Support: Supports RADIUS-assigned tagged and untagged VLAN configuration on
an authenticated port. This allows you, for example, to use IDM to dynamically configure tagged and untagged VLANs as required for different client
devices, such as PCs and IP phones, that share the same switch port. See
the section on “VLAN Assignment in an Authentication Session” in the
chapter on “RADIUS Authentication and Accounting”.
PoE Planning and Implementation Guide
Power Redundancy: Support has been added for PoE redundancy. When PoE redundancy is
enabled, PoE redundancy occurs automatically. The switch keeps track of
power use and won’t supply PoE power to additional PoE devices trying to
connect if that results in the switch not having enough power in reserve for
redundancy if one of the power supplies should fail.

Release K.13.02 Enhancements
Release K.13.02 includes the following enhancements.
■
Enhancement: Beginning with K.13.02, DHCP can now be enabled on a Management VLAN.
Since, by definition, there is no routing to or from a VLAN configured as a management VLAN,
DHCP relay is still prohibited so the DHCP server must be attached to the management VLAN
for that VLAN to acquire an address. All DHCP options will be supported.
■
Enhancement (PR_1000458124) — VRRP Preemptive Delay Timer. For more
information, see “VRRP Pre-Emptive Delay Timer” on page 71 below.
VRRP Pre-Emptive Delay Timer
In order to maintain availability of the default gateway router, the Virtual Router Redundancy
Protocol (VRRP) advertises a “virtual” router to the hosts. At least two other physical routers are
configured to be virtual routers, but only one router provides the default router functionality at any
given time. If the Owner router or its VLAN goes down, the Backup router takes over. When the Owner
Router comes back on line (Fail-back), it takes control of the virtual IP address that has been assigned
to it. It begins sending out VRRP advertisement packets at regular intervals. The Backup router
receives the VRRP advertisement packet and transitions to the Backup state.
71
Enhancements
Release K.13.02 Enhancements
When OSPF is Also Enabled on the VRRP Routers
When OSPF is enabled on the routers and a Fail-back event occurs, the Owner router immediately
takes control of the virtual IP address and provides the default gateway functionality. If OSPF has
not converged, the route table in the Owner router may not be completely populated. When the hosts
send packets to the default gateway, the Owner router may not know where to send them and packets
may be dropped.
Caution
While you can run OSPF and VRRP concurrently on a router, it is best not to run VRRP with other
routing protocols such as RIP or OSPF on the same interface or VLAN as this can create operational
issues.
Configuring the Preempt Delay Timer
The VRRP Pre-empt Delay Timer (PDT) allows you to configure a period of time before the Owner
router takes back control of the virtual IP address. It does not transition to the Master state until the
timer period expires. The timer value configured should be long enough to allow OSPF convergence
following OSPF updates.
The PDT is applied only during initialization of the router, that is, when the router is rebooting with
the VRRP parameters present in the startup config file.
Syntax: [no] preempt-delay-time <1-600 >
Allows you to specify a time in seconds that the Owner router will wait before taking
control of the virtual IP address and beginning to route packets. You can configure
the timer on VRRP Owner and Backup routers.
Note: If you have configured the Preempt Delay Timer with a non-zero value, you
must use the no form of the command to change it to 0 (zero).
Default: 0 (zero) seconds.
Note
If the PDT is active for a virtual router, you cannot change the router’s mode from Owner to Backup
or Backup to Owner. To change the mode, make the PDT inactive and then reconfigure the mode.
For example:
ProCurve(config)# no vlan 16 vrrp vrid 23 preempt-delay time 12
72
Enhancements
Release K.13.02 Enhancements
where
VID = 16
VRID = 23
PDT = 12 seconds
VRRP Preempt Mode with LACP and Older ProCurve Devices
There can be an issue with VRRP Preempt Mode if an older ProCurve device (2524, 2650, 2848, 3400cl,
or 5300) is the intermediate device connecting to a VRRP router and has LACP set in “enable, passive”
mode. This mode is set by default on older ProCurve devices, whereas it is disabled by default on
later models such as the ProCurve Series 5400zl. ProCurve recommends that you use compatible
LACP settings on devices that connect with VRRP routers on VRRP VLANs.
What Occurs at Startup
When the Owner router comes online, it will wait for the configured amount of time before taking
control of the virtual IP address. This period of time is calculated as follows:
If the value of the Master down time (3 * advertisement interval) is less than or equal to the preempt delay
time, then the Owner router will wait until the Master down time (3 * advertisement interval) has expired.
During this waiting period, if the Owner router receives a VRRP packet for its virtual IP address from
the Backup router, it will wait until the PDT expires before taking control of its virtual IP address. If
the Owner router does not receive any VRRP packets and the Master down time expires, the Owner
router can take control of its virtual IP address immediately.
If the value of the Master down time (3 * advertisement interval) is greater than the preempt delay time,
then the Owner Router will wait until the PDT expires before taking control of its virtual IP address.
Selecting a Value for the PDT
You should select the value for the PDT carefully to allow time for OSPF to populate the Owner
router’s route tables. The choice depends on the following:
■
The OFPF router dead interval—the number of seconds the OSPF router waits to receive a
hello packet before assuming its neighbor is down.
■
The number of router interfaces that participate in OSPF
■
The time it may take from reception of the OSPF packets to when the population of the route
table is completed.
73
Enhancements
Release K.13.02 Enhancements
There are trade-offs between selecting a small advertisement value and a large preempt delay time.
A small advertisement value results in a faster failover to the Backup router. A larger PDT value
allows OSPF to converge before the Owner router takes back control of its virtual IP address.
Choosing a large PDT value (greater than the Master down time) may result in an unnecessary failover
to the Backup router when the VRRP routers (Owner and Backup) start up together. Choosing a large
advertisement interval and thereby a large Master down time results in a slower failover to the Backup
router when the Owner router fails.
Possible Configuration Scenarios
Preempt Delay Time = Zero Seconds. This is the default behavior. It works in the same way that
VRRP works currently.
Preempt Delay Time is Greater Than or Equal to the Master Down Time (3 times the
advertisement interval).
a.
An Owner Virtual Router after reboot—waits for the Master Down Time. If the Owner router
does not receive a packet during this time, it becomes the Master. If it receives a VRRP
advertisement from its peer during this time, it waits until the expiration of the preempt
delay time before becoming the Master.
b. A Backup Virtual Router after reboot—waits for the Master Down Time. If the Backup router
does not receive a packet during this time, it becomes the Master. If it receives a VRRP
advertisement from its peer during this time, it waits until the expiration of the preempt
delay time before becoming the Backup.
Preempt Delay Time is Less Than the Master Down Time.
a.
Owner router—becomes the Master after expiration of the preempt delay time.
b. Backup router—becomes the Backup after expiration of the preempt delay time.
When the Preempt Delay Time is not Applicable
Once the router has rebooted and is in steady state VRRP operation, the PDT is not applicable if:
■
The VRRP VLAN goes down and comes back up
■
The Virtual Router is disabled and re-enabled
■
VRRP is globally disabled and then re-enabled
Backward Compatibility
If a VRRP router functions with an older version that does not have the pre-empt delay timer
enhancement, it will take over virtual IP address control immediately on start-up or when there is a
fail-back event. There should be no backward compatibility issues.

Enhancement (PR_ 0000000081) — The CLI clear module command allows you to remove
module configuration information from the configuration file.
Clear Module Configuration
Overview
Because of the hot-swap capabilities of the modules, when a module is removed from the chassis of
a ProCurve series 5400 switch, the module configuration remains in the configuration file. This
enhancement allows you to remove the module configuration information from the configuration file.
Syntax: [no] module <slot>
Allows removal of the module configuration in the configuration file after the
module has been removed. Enter an integer between 1 and 12 for <slot>.
For example:
ProCurve(config)# no module 3
Note
This does not change how hot-swap works.
Operating Notes
The following restrictions apply:
■
The slot being cleared must be empty
■
There was no module present in the slot since the last boot
■
If there was a module present after the switch was booted, the switch will have to be rebooted
before any module (new or same) can be used in the slot.

Enhancement (PR_ 0000000082) — The CLI track interface command allows you to

VRRP—Dynamic Priority Change
Overview
This enhancement provides the ability to dynamically change the priority of the virtual router (VR)
when certain events occur. The Backup VR releases virtual IP address control by reducing its priority
when tracked entities such as ports, trunks, or VLANs go down. You can also force the Backup to
take ownership of the VR if you have previously caused it to release control.
In normal VRRP operation, one router (Router-1) is in the Master state and one router (Router-2) is
in the Backup state. Router-1 provides the default gateway for the host. If Router-1 goes down for
any reason, the Backup router, Router-2, provides the default gateway for the host.

Figure 10. Example VRRP Configuration
If all the tracked entities configured on Router-1 go down, Router-1 begins sending advertisements
with a priority of zero. This causes Router-2 to take control of the virtual IP.
Any applications or routing protocols such as RIP or OSPF on Router-1 that were using its IP address
are no longer able to use that IP interface. Router-1 does not respond to any ARP requests for that
IP address. Router-2 takes control of the IP address and responds to ARP requests for it with the
virtual MAC address that corresponds to VRID-1.
77
Enhancements
Release K.13.04 Enhancements
Note
A Backup VR switches to priority zero instead of its configured value when all its tracked entities go
down. An Owner VR always uses priority 255 and never relinquishes control voluntarily.
CLI Commands
The following commands are used for this enhancement.
Note
You can only configure tracked interfaces or VLANs on the Backup router.
Configuring Track Interface
The track interface command allows you to configure tracking for a port or list of ports, or a trunk or
list of trunks.
Note
VR operation must be down before executing this command. Use the no enable command to disable
VR operation.
Syntax: [no] track interface <port-list/trunk-list>
Allows you to specify a port or port list, or trunk or trunk list, that will be tracked
by this virtual router. If the port or trunk is down, the virtual router switches to
the router specified by the priority value. The command is executed in VRID
instance context.
For example:
ProCurve(config)# vlan 25
ProCurve(vlan-25)# vrid 1
ProCurve(vlan-25-vrid-1)# track interface 10-12, Trk1
78
Enhancements
Release K.13.04 Enhancements
Configuring Track VLAN
The track vlan command allows you to specify a VLAN or range of VLANs to be tracked by the VR.
Notes
VR operation must be down before executing this command. Use the no enable command to disable
VR operation.
The VRs operating VLAN can’t be configured as a tracking VLAN for that VR.
Syntax: [no] track vlan <vlan-id range>
Allows you to specify a VLAN or range of VLANs that will be tracked by this virtual
router. If the VLAN is down, or the VLAN or IP address has been deleted, the virtual
router switches to the router specified by the dynamic priority value. The command
is executed in VRID instance context.
For example:
ProCurve(config)# vlan 25
ProCurve(vlan-25)# vrid 1
ProCurve(vlan-25-vrid-1)# track vlan 10 24-26
Note
When the first tracked port or tracked VLAN comes up after being down, the VR waits for the preempt
delay time before it tries to take control back. The VR resumes being a Backup with its configured
priority as soon as the first tracked entity is up.
The behavior of the VR is not affected by any tracked entities until after the expiration of the preempt
delay time. However, if while waiting for the preempt delay time to expire, a Master goes down, the
VR tries to take control of the virtual IP.
Removing all Tracked Entities
Use the no track command to remove all interfaces and vlans from being tracked.
79
Enhancements
Release K.13.04 Enhancements
Syntax: no track
The command allows you to remove tracking for all configured track entities (ports,
trunks, and VLANs). The command is executed in VRID instance context.
For example:
ProCurve(vlan-25-vrid-1)# no track
Failover Operation
Failover operation involves handing off of the VRs control of the virtual IP to another VR. Once a
failover command is issued, the VR begins sending advertisements with priority zero instead of the
configured priority. When the VR detects a peer VR taking control, it releases control of the virtual
IP and ceases VR operation until a failback is executed. Failover only occurs on a Backup VR
operating as Master.
If you specify the with-monitoring option, the VR continues to monitor the virtual IP after ceasing VR
operation. If the Master VR goes down, it then re-takes control of the virtual IP.
Syntax: failover [with-monitoring]
Allows you to force the Backup VR operating as Master to relinquish ownership of
the VR instance. The command is executed in VRID instance context.
Failback Operation
The failback command forces the Backup VR to take ownership of the VR instance. Failback is
disabled on the Owner VR; it can only be executed on the Backup VR. Failback can only occur on a
VR on which failover or failover with-monitoring has been executed.
Syntax: failback
Forces the Backup VR to take ownership of the VR instance. This command only
takes effect if the Backup VR instance has a higher priority than the current Owner,
which is normal VRRP router behavior. The command is executed in VRID instance
context.

download and initially boot from a configuration that is different from the factory-shipped
configuration.
■
DHCP Option 66 Automatic Configuration Update
Overview
ProCurve switches are initially booted up with the factory-shipped configuration file. This enhancement provides a way to automatically download a different configuration file from a TFTP server
using DHCP Option 66. The prerequisites for this to function correctly are:
•
One or more DHCP servers with Option 66 are enabled
•
One or more TFTP servers has the desired configuration file.
Caution
This feature must use configuration files generated on the switch to function correctly. If you use
configuration files that were not generated on the switch, and then enable this feature, the switch
may reboot continuously.
CLI Command
The command to enable the configuration update using Option 66 is:
Syntax: [no] dhcp config-file-update

Scenario
Behavior
Single Server serving Multiple VLANs
• Each DHCP-enabled VLAN interface initiates DHCPDISCOVER
message, receives DHCPOFFER from the server, and send
DHCPREQUEST to obtain the offered parameters.
• If multiple interfaces send DHCPREQUESTs, it’s possible that more
than one DHCPACK is returned with a valid Option 66.
• Evaluating and updating the configuration file occurs only on the
primary VLAN.
• Option 66 is ignored by any interfaces not belonging to the primary
VLAN.
Multiple Servers serving a Single VLAN
• Each DHCP-enabled VLAN interface initiates one DHCPDISCOVER
and receives one or more DHCPOFFER messages.
• Each interface accepts the best offer.
• Option 66 is processed only for the interface belonging to the primary
VLAN.
Multiple Servers serving Multiple VLANs
• Each DHCP-enabled VLAN interface initiates DHCPDISCOVER and
receives one or more DHCPOFFER messages.
• Each interface accepts the best offer.
• Option 66 is processed only for the interface belonging to the primary
VLAN.
Multi-homed Server serving Multiple VLANs
• The switch perceives the multi-homed server as multiple separate
servers.
• Each DHCP-enabled VLAN interface initiates DHCPDISCOVER and
receives one DHCPOFFER message.
• Each interface accepts the offer.
• Option 66 is processed only for the interface belonging to the primary
VLAN.
Operating Notes
Replacing the Existing Configuration File: After the DHCP client downloads the configuration
file, the switch compares the contents of that file with the existing configuration file. If the content
is different, the new configuration file replaces the existing file and the switch reboots.
Option 67 and the Configuration File Name: Option 67 includes the name of the configuration
file. If the DHCPACK contains this option, it overrides the default name for the configuration file
(switch.cfg)
Global DHCP Parameters: Global parameters are processed only if received on the primary VLAN.
Best Offer: The “Best Offer” is the best DHCP or BootP offer sent by the DHCP server in response
to the DHCPREQUEST sent by the switch. The criteria for selecting the “Best Offer” are:

Enhancement (PR_ 0000000085) — The DHCP relay address configuration enhancement
provides a way to configure a gateway address for the DHCP relay agent to use for DHCP
requests, rather than the DHCP relay agent automatically assigning the lowest-numbered IP
address.
BOOTP/DHCP Relay Gateway
Overview
Previously, the DHCP relay agent selected the lowest-numbered IP address on the interface to use
for DHCP messages. The DHCP server then used this IP address when it assigned client addresses.
However, this IP address may not be the same subnet as the one on which the client needs the DHCP
Service.
This enhancement provides a way to configure a gateway address for the DHCP relay agent to use
for DHCP requests, rather than the DHCP relay agent automatically assigning the lowest-numbered
IP address.
You must be in VLAN context to use this command, for example:
ProCurve# config
ProCurve(config)# vlan 1
ProCurve(vlan-1)#
Syntax: ip bootp-gateway <ip-addr>
Allows you to configure an IP address for the DHCP relay agent to use for DHCP
requests. The IP address must have been configured on the interface.
Default: Lowest-numbered IP address

Enhancement (PR_ 0000000086) — This enhancement allows rate-limiting of inbound
broadcast and multicast traffic on the switch.
Inbound Rate-Limiting for Broadcast and Multicast Traffic
This enhancement allows rate-limiting (throttling) of inbound broadcast and multicast traffic on the

multicast traffic. Only the amount of traffic specified by the percent is forwarded.
Default: Disabled
For example, if you want to set a limit of 50 percent on inbound broadcast traffic for port 3, you can
first enter interface context for port 3 and then execute the rate-limit command, as shown in
Figure 1. Only 50 percent of the inbound broadcast traffic will be forwarded.

Enhancement (PR_0000001790) — This enhancement provides the no-tag-added
parameter that gives the user the option of not tagging a mirrored copy of an outbound
packet.
Mirror Port VLAN Tagging
ProCurve switches can mirror inbound and outbound traffic to local ports on the switch, or to ports
on remote switches. Currently, a VLAN tag is added to the mirrored copy of untagged outbound
packets to indicate the source VLAN of the packet. However, it is desirable in some situations to have
mirrored packets look exactly like the original packet.
This enhancement provides the no-tag-added parameter that gives you the option of not tagging a
mirrored copy of an outbound packet.

A mirror destination for the session must be assigned before a port monitoring source is assigned.

•
The specified port can be a physical port, a trunk port, or a mesh port.
•
Only a single logical port (physical port or trunk) can be associated with a mirror session
when the no-tag-added option is specified. No other combination of ACL mirroring, VLAN
mirroring, or port mirroring can be associated with the mirror session. If more than one
logical port is specified, the following error message is displayed:
•
Cannot monitor more than 1 logical port with no-tag-added option
•
If a port changes its VLAN membership and/or untagged status within the VLAN, the
“untagged port mirroring” associated with that port is updated when the configuration
change is processed.
•
Only four ports or trunks can be monitored at one time when all four mirror sessions
are in use (one logical port per mirror session) without VLAN tags being added to the
mirrored copy.
•
The no-tag-added option can also be used when mirroring is configured with SNMP.
•
A VLAN tag is still added to the untagged packets obtained via VLAN-based mirroring.
Enhancement (PR_1000756562) — This enhancement provides concurrent Web/MAC
and 802.1x authentication.
Concurrent Web and MAC Authentication
This enhancement allows Web and MAC authentication concurrently on the same port. It is assumed
that MAC authentication will use an existing MAC address.
Conditions for Concurrent Web and MAC Authentication
The following conditions apply for concurrent Web and MAC authentication on the same port:
•
A specific MAC address cannot be authenticated by both Web and MAC authentication
at the same time.
•
Each new Web/MAC Auth client always initiates a MAC authentication attempt. This
same client can also initiate Web authentication at any time before the MAC authentication succeeds. If either authentication succeeds then the other authentication (if in
progress) is ended. No further Web/MAC authentication attempts are allowed until the
client is de-authenticated.
104
Enhancements
Release K.13.16 Enhancements
•
Web and MAC authentications are not allowed on the same port if unauthenticated VLAN
(that is, a guest VLAN) is enabled for MAC authentication. An unauthenticated VLAN
can’t be enabled for MAC authentication if Web and MAC authentication are both
enabled on the port.
•
Hitless re-authentication must be of the same type (MAC) that was used for the initial
authentication. Non-hitless re-authentication can be of any type.
The remaining Web/MAC functionality, including interactions with 802.1X, remains the same. Web
and MAC authentication can be used for different clients on the same port.
Normally, MAC authentication finishes much sooner than Web authentication. However, if Web
authentication should complete first, MAC authentication will cease even though it is possible that
MAC authentication could succeed. There is no guarantee that MAC authentication ends before Web
authentication begins for the client.
These changes are backward compatible with all existing user configurations.

■
Enhancement (PR_0000003808) — This enhancement allows the user to create command
aliases for use in place of command names and their options.
Using a Command Alias
You can create a simple command alias to use in place of a command name and its options. Choose
an alias name that is not an existing CLI command already. Existing CLI commands are searched
before looking for an alias command; an alias that is identical to an existing command will not be
executed.
The alias command is executed from the current configuration context (operator, manager, or global).
If the command that is aliased has to be executed in the global configuration context, you must
execute the alias for that command in the global configuration context as well. This prevents
bypassing the security in place for a particular context.
ProCurve recommends that you configure no more than 128 aliases.
Syntax: [no] alias <name> <command>
109
Enhancements
Release K.13.19 Enhancements
Creates a shortcut alias name to use in place of a commonly used command. The
alias command is executed from the current config context.
name: Specifies the new command name to use to simplify keystrokes and aid
memory.
command: Specifies an existing command to be aliased. The command must be
enclosed in quotes.
Use the no form of the command to remove the alias.
For example, if you use the show interface custom command to specify the output, you can configure
an alias for the command to simplify execution.

Enhancement (PR_0000000818) — This enhancement allows the user to enter addresses
and filter parameters for syslog using SNMP, which allows more options for remote access
and management of the switch.
Configure Logging via SNMP
Overview
Debug messages generated by the software can be sent to a syslog server. This feature provides the
ability to enter addresses and filter parameters for syslog using SNMP, which allows more options
for remote access and management of the switch. The HP enterprise MIB hpicfSyslog.mib is added
to allow the configuration and monitoring of syslog. (RFC 3164 supported)
The CLI has some additional parameters to permit interoperability with SNMP that are explained
below.

Enhancements
Release K.13.19 Enhancements
Note
See the section “Command Differences for the ProCurve Series 2600/2800/3400cl/6400cl Switches”
on page 113 for command differences on these switches.
Adding a Description for a Syslog Server
You can associate a user-friendly description with each of the IP addresses (IPv4 only) configured
for syslog using the CLI or SNMP. The CLI command is:
Syntax: logging <ip-addr> control-descr <text_string>]
no logging <ip-addr> [control-descr]
An optional user-friendly description that can be associated with a server IP address. If
no description is entered, this is blank. If <text_string> contains white space, use quotes
around the string. IPv4 addresses only. Use the no form of the command to remove the
description.
Limit: 255 characters
Note: To remove the description using SNMP, set the description to an empty string.
ProCurve(config)# logging 10.10.10.2 control-descr syslog_one
Figure 10. Example of the Logging Command with a Control Description
Caution
Entering the no logging command removes ALL the syslog server addresses without a verification
prompt.
Adding a Priority Description
You can add a user-friendly description for the set of syslog filter parameters using the priority-descr
option. The description can be added with the CLI or SNMP. The CLI command is:
112
Enhancements
Release K.13.19 Enhancements
Syntax: logging priority-descr <text_string>

Provides a user-friendly description for the combined filter values of severity and
system module. If no description is entered, this is blank. If <text_string> contains
white space, use quotes around the string. Use the no form of the command to remove
the description.
Limit: 255 characters

Figure 11. Example of the Logging Command with a Priority Description
Note
A notification is sent to the SNMP agent if there are any changes to the syslog parameters either
through the CLI or with SNMP.

•
If the default severity value is in effect, all messages that have severities greater than
the default value are passed to syslog. For example, if the default severity is “debug”, all
messages that have severities greater than debug are passed to syslog.
•
There is a limit of six syslog servers. All syslog servers are sent the same messages using
the same filter parameters.
•
An error is generated for an attempt to add more than six syslog servers.
Enhancement (PR_0000003390) — This enhancement allows the user to customize Web
Authentication HTML pages.
Customizing Web Authentication HTML Files
The Web Authentication process displays a series of Web pages and status messages to the user during
login. The Web pages that are displayed can be:
•
Generic, default pages generated directly by the switch software
•
Customized pages hosted on a local Web server.
By creating customized login Web pages, you can improve the “look and feel” of the Web Authentication process to correspond more closely with your network and business needs. For example, you
can:
•
Identify the network that a client is trying to log into.
•
Provide contact information if a client has difficulty connecting to the network.
•
Incorporate CSS styles consistent with the appearance of your network.
To implement these “enhanced” Web Authentication pages, you need to:
•
Configure and start a Web server on your local network,
•
Customize the HTML template files and make them accessible to the Web server
•
Configure the switch to display the customized files by using the aaa port-access web-based
<port-list > ewa-server command.
The customized Web pages you create can be hosted on up to three Web servers in your network.
Implementing multiple Web servers provides redundancy in case access to any of the other servers
fail.
Implementing Customized Web-Auth Pages
Guidelines
•
Customized Web Authentication pages are configured per switch, so that each Web-Auth
enabled port displays the same customized pages at client login.
114
Enhancements
Release K.13.19 Enhancements
•
You can use up to three Web servers in your network to store and display customized
Web pages for Web Authentication login.
•
To configure a Web server on your network, follow the instructions in the documentation
provided with the server.
•
Before you enable custom Web Authentication pages, you should:
Determine the IP address or host name of the Web server(s) that will host your custom
pages.
Determine the path on the server(s) where the HTML files (including all graphics) used
for the login pages are stored.
Configure and start the Web server(s).
Create the customized Web pages as described in “Guidelines for Customizing the HTML
Templates” on page 115, and store them in the document path on the designated servers.
Test that they are accessible at the designated URL(s).
Enabling Customized Web Authentication Pages
To enable customized Web-Auth pages on a switch, use the aaa port-access web-based ewa-server
command to specify the server’s IP address or host name and the path to the customized HTML files
on the server. See “Commands for Using Custom Web Authentication Pages” on page 128 for syntax
details.
Guidelines for Customizing the HTML Templates
When you customize an HTML template, follow these guidelines:
•
Do not change the name of any of the HTML files (index.html, accept.html, and so on).
•
Some template pages use Embedded Switch Includes (ESIs) or Active Server Pages.
These should not be modified when customizing HTML files. ESIs behave as follows:
i.
A client’s Web browser sends a request for an HTML file. The switch passes the request to
a configured Web server.
ii. The Web server responds by sending a customized HTML page to the switch. Each ESI call
in the HTML page is replaced with the value (in plain text) retrieved by the call.
iii. The switch sends the final version of the HTML page to the client’s Web browser.
•
115
Store all customized login Web pages (including any graphics) that you create for client
login on each Web server at the path you will configure with the aaa port-access
web-based ewa-server command.

Enhancement (PR_1000460265) — This enhancement provides Dynamic IP Lockdown,
which is used to prevent IP source address spoofing on a per-port and per-VLAN basis.
Dynamic IP Lockdown
The Dynamic IP Lockdown feature is used to prevent IP source address spoofing on a per-port and
per-VLAN basis. When dynamic IP lockdown is enabled, IP packets in VLAN traffic received on a port
are forwarded only if they contain a known source IP address and MAC address binding for the port.
The IP-to-MAC address binding can either be statically configured or learned by the DHCP Snooping
feature.
129
Enhancements
Release K.13.19 Enhancements
Protection Against IP Source Address Spoofing
Many network attacks occur when an attacker injects packets with forged IP source addresses into
the network. Also, some network services use the IP source address as a component in their
authentication schemes. For example, the BSD “r” protocols (rlogin, rcp, rsh) rely on the IP source
address for packet authentication. SNMPv1 and SNMPv2c also frequently use authorized IP address
lists to limit management access. An attacker that is able to send traffic that appears to originate
from an authorized IP source address may gain access to network services for which he is not

Dynamic IP lockdown provides protection against IP source address spoofing by means of IP-level
port security. IP packets received on a port enabled for dynamic IP lockdown are only forwarded if
they contain a known IP source address and MAC address binding for the port.
Dynamic IP lockdown uses information collected in the DHCP Snooping lease database and through
statically configured IP source bindings to create internal, per-port lists. The internal lists are
dynamically created from known IP-to-MAC address bindings to filter VLAN traffic on both the source
IP address and source MAC address.
Differences Between Switch Platforms
There are some differences in the feature set and operation of Dynamic IP Lockdown, depending on
the switch on which it is implemented. These are listed below.
•
There is no restriction on GVRP on 3500/5400 switches. On 2600/2800/3400cl switches,
Dynamic IP Lockdown is not supported if GVRP is enabled on the switch.
•
Dynamic IP Lockdown has the host limits shown in the table below. There is a DHCP
snooping limit of 8,000 entries.
Switch
Number of Hosts
Comments
3500/5400
64 bindings per port
Up to 4096 bindings per switch
This limit is shared with DHCP snooping because
they both use the snooping database.
3400cl/2800
32 bindings per port
Up to 32 VLANs with DHCP snooping
enabled
This is not guaranteed as the hardware
resources are shared with QoS.
2600
8 bindings per port
Up to 8 VLANs with DHCP snooping
enabled
This is not guaranteed as the hardware
resources are shared with QoS.
•
A source is considered “trusted” for all VLANs if it is seen on any VLAN without DHCP
snooping enabled.
•
On the ProCurve switch series 5400 and 3500, dynamic IP lockdown is supported on a
port configured for statically configured port-based ACLs.

Release K.13.19 Enhancements
Prerequisite: DHCP Snooping
Dynamic IP lockdown requires that you enable DHCP snooping as a prerequisite for its operation on
ports and VLAN traffic:
•
Dynamic IP lockdown only enables traffic for clients whose leased IP addresses are
already stored in the lease database created by DHCP snooping or added through a static
configuration of an IP-to-MAC binding.
Therefore, if you enable DHCP snooping after dynamic IP lockdown is enabled, clients with
an existing DHCP-assigned address must either request a new leased IP address or renew
their existing DHCP-assigned address. Otherwise, a client’s leased IP address is not
contained in the DHCP binding database. As a result, dynamic IP lockdown will not allow
inbound traffic from the client.
•
It is recommended that you enable DHCP snooping a week before you enable dynamic
IP lockdown to allow the DHCP binding database to learn clients’ leased IP addresses.
You must also ensure that the lease time for the information in the DHCP binding
database lasts more than a week.
Alternatively, you can configure a DHCP server to re-allocate IP addresses to DHCP clients.
In this way, you repopulate the lease database with current IP-to-MAC bindings.
•
The DHCP binding database allows VLANs enabled for DHCP snooping to be known on
ports configured for dynamic IP lockdown. As new IP-to-MAC address and VLAN
bindings are learned, a corresponding permit rule is dynamically created and applied to
the port (preceding the final deny any vlan <VLAN_IDs> rule as shown in the example
in Figure 3). These VLAN_IDs correspond to the subset of configured and enabled
VLANS for which DHCP snooping has been configured.
•
For dynamic IP lockdown to work, a port must be a member of at least one VLAN that
has DHCP snooping enabled.
•
Disabling DHCP snooping on a VLAN causes Dynamic IP bindings on Dynamic IP
Lockdown-enabled ports in this VLAN to be removed. The port reverts back to switching
traffic as usual.
Filtering IP and MAC Addresses Per-Port and Per-VLAN
This section contains an example that shows the following aspects of the Dynamic IP Lockdown
feature:
131
•
Internal Dynamic IP lockdown bindings dynamically applied on a per-port basis from
information in the DHCP Snooping lease database and statically configured IP-to-MAC
address bindings
•
Packet filtering using source IP address, source MAC address, and source VLAN as
criteria

permit 10.0.8.7 001122-334477 vlan 2
permit 10.0.10.3 001122-334433 vlan 5

Enabling Dynamic IP Lockdown
To enable dynamic IP lockdown on all ports or specified ports, enter the ip source-lockdown command
at the global configuration level. Use the no form of the command to disable dynamic IP lockdown.
Syntax: [no] ip source-lockdown [port-list]
Enables dynamic IP lockdown globally on all ports or on
specified ports on the routing switch.
Operating Notes
■
Dynamic IP lockdown is enabled at the port configuration level and applies to all bridged or
routed IP packets entering the switch. The only IP packets that are exempt from dynamic IP
lockdown are broadcast DHCP request packets, which are handled by DHCP snooping.
■
DHCP snooping is a prerequisite for Dynamic IP Lockdown operation. The following restrictions
apply:
•
DHCP snooping is required for dynamic IP lockdown to operate. To enable DHCP snooping,
enter the dhcp-snooping command at the global configuration level.
•
Dynamic IP lockdown only filters packets in VLANs that are enabled for DHCP snooping. In
order for Dynamic IP lockdown to work on a port, the port must be configured for at least
one VLAN that is enabled for DHCP snooping.
To enable DHCP snooping on a VLAN, enter the dhcp-snooping vlan [vlan-id-range] command
at the global configuration level or the dhcp-snooping command at the VLAN configuration
level.
•
Dynamic IP lockdown is not supported on a trusted port. (However, note that the DHCP
server must be connected to a trusted port when DHCP snooping is enabled.)
By default, all ports are untrusted. To remove the trusted configuration from a port, enter
the no dhcp-snooping trust <port-list> command at the global configuration level.
For more information on how to configure and use DHCP snooping, refer to the “Configuring
Advanced Threat Protection” chapter in the Access Security Guide.
■
After you enter the ip source-lockdown command (enabled globally with the desired ports entered
in <port-list>), the dynamic IP lockdown feature remains disabled on a port if any of the following
conditions exist:
•
If DHCP snooping has not been globally enabled on the switch.
•
If the port is not a member of at least one VLAN that is enabled for DHCP snooping.
•
If the port is configured as a trusted port for DHCP snooping.
Dynamic IP lockdown is activated on the port only after you make the following configuration
changes:
133
•
Enable DHCP snooping on the switch.
•
Configure the port as a member of a VLAN that has DHCP snooping enabled.
Enhancements
Release K.13.19 Enhancements
•
Remove the trusted-port configuration.
■
You can configure dynamic IP lockdown only from the CLI; this feature cannot be configured
from the Web management or menu interface.
■
If you enable dynamic IP lockdown on a port, you cannot add the port to a trunk.
■
Dynamic IP lockdown must be removed from a trunk before the trunk is removed.
Adding an IP-to-MAC Binding to the DHCP Binding Database
A switch maintains a DHCP binding database, which is used for dynamic IP lockdown as well as for
DHCP and ARP packet validation. The DHCP snooping feature maintains the lease database by
learning the IP-to-MAC bindings of VLAN traffic on untrusted ports. Each binding consists of the
client MAC address, port number, VLAN identifier, leased IP address, and lease time.
Dynamic IP lockdown supports a total of 4K static and dynamic bindings with up to 64 bindings per
port. When DHCP snooping is enabled globally on a VLAN, dynamic bindings are learned when a
client on the VLAN obtains an IP address from a DHCP server. Static bindings are created manually
with the CLI or from a downloaded configuration file.
When dynamic IP lockdown is enabled globally or on ports the bindings associated with the ports
are written to hardware. This occurs during these events:
•
Switch initialization
•
Hot swap
•
A dynamic IP lockdown-enabled port is moved to a DHCP snooping-enabled VLAN
•
DHCP snooping or dynamic IP lockdown characteristics are changed such that dynamic
IP lockdown is enabled on the ports
Potential Issues with Bindings
•
When dynamic IP lockdown enabled, and a port or switch has the maximum number of
bindings configured, the client DHCP request will be dropped and the client will not
receive an IP address through DHCP.
•
When dynamic IP lockdown is enabled and a port is configured with the maximum
number of bindings, adding a static binding to the port will fail.
•
When dynamic IP lockdown is enabled globally, the bindings for each port are written
to hardware. If global dynamic IP lockdown is enabled and disabled several times, it is
possible to run out of buffer space for additional bindings. The software will delay adding
the bindings to hardware until resources are available.
134
Enhancements
Release K.13.19 Enhancements
Adding a Static Binding
To add the static configuration of an IP-to-MAC binding for a port to the lease database, enter the ip
source-binding command at the global configuration level. Use the no form of the command to remove
the IP-to-MAC binding from the database.
Syntax: [no] ip source-binding <vlan-id> <ip-address> <mac-address>
<port-number>
vlan-id
Specifies a valid VLAN ID number to bind with
the specified MAC and IP addresses on the port
in the DHCP binding database.
ip-address
Specifies a valid client IP address to bind with a
VLAN and MAC address on the port in the DHCP
binding database.
mac-address Specifies a valid client MAC address to bind with
a VLAN and IP address on the port in the DHCP
binding database.
port-number
Specifies the port number on which the
IP-to-MAC address and VLAN binding is configured in the DHCP binding database.
Note
Note that the ip source-binding command is the same command used by the Dynamic ARP Protection
feature to configure static bindings. The Dynamic ARP Protection and Dynamic IP Lockdown features
share a common list of source IP-to-MAC address bindings.
Verifying the Dynamic IP Lockdown Configuration
To display the ports on which dynamic IP lockdown is configured, enter the show ip source-lockdown

series software code was rolled to the K.12.0x code branch with no intervening releases.
Release K.12.01
The following problems were resolved in release K.12.01
■
ACL (PR_1000393287) — When the same ACL is applied (in or out) to more than 2 VLANs
it does not get applied to the third VLAN or higher.
■
ACL (PR_1000389442) — Numbering restrictions are not enforced at the CLI; ACLs
numbered 200 or higher are considered valid. This fix enforces ACL numbering restrictions
and converts existing ACLs numbered 200 or higher into named ACLs. If an invalid name of
form XXX is found, it will be converted to "invalidXXX".
Note:
If you have ACLs configured with numbers greater than or equal to 200, you need to
reconfigure those ACLs with either a valid name or valid number prior to loading K.12.01
software, or it will be tagged as invalid. For example, if you have an ACL called 222 and it is
applied to a vlan, the K.12.01 script will convert the 222 ACL to "invalid222" and apply it to
the vlan.
■
CLI (PR_1000332352) — The output of a show int brief command should show the
negotiated flow control status rather than the flow control configuration setting.
■
Crash (PR_1000385237) — Applying an access control list with more than 105 entries to
a VLAN interface causes the switch to crash with a message similar to:

Software Fixes in Release K.11.12 - K.13.49
Release K.12.18
Release K.12.18
The following problems were resolved in release K.12.18.
■
CLI (PR_1000419379) — The “interface” command does not exist in the VLAN context,
resulting in an inability to shift to the interface configuration context directly from the VLAN
context.
■
Hang (PR_1000434809) — The switch may hang, causing all the port LEDs to remain lit,
and stop transmitting traffic.
■
Enhancement (PR_1000428213) — This software enhancement adds the ability to
configure a secondary authentication method to be used when the RADIUS server is
unavailable for the primary port access method.
■
Crash (PR_1000436274) — Typing a question mark ("?") at the "multi-line" input prompt
(">") may cause the switch to crash. The crash occurs when the switch is trying to print the
error message that states:
Expansion help not available on multi-line input.
■
CLI (PR_1000433948) — When command authorization is in use, the "show tech"
command fails at the “show tech buffer” component, even when the permission list indicates
that it should be allowed.
■
Enhancement (PR_1000415155) — The ARP age timer was enhanced from the previous
limit of 240 minutes to allow for configuration of values up to 1440 minutes (24 hours) or
"infinite" (99,999,999 seconds or 3.2 years).
■
Enhancement (PR_1000438015) — The banner message of the day (MOTD) size has been
increased to support up to 3070 characters.
Release K.12.19

■
ACL (PR_1000432563) — ACLs with the "permit" parameter on L4 ports and using
operators ‘gt’/‘lt’/‘range’ do not function as expected. The ACL does not drop traffic with
non-permitted L4 ports. Instead, all traffic with L4 ports is forwarded.
■
CLI (PR_1000438486) — When using the "port-access mac-based" CLI command, the client
MAC address is sent in lower case and as the username to the RADIUS server. This fix adds
an option so that the MAC address is in uppercase when sent to the RADIUS server. This fix
adds additional parameters to the CLI command to support this: "aaa port-access mac-based
addr-format."

correctly following a CLI or SNMP status query.
■
Enhancement (PR_1000440049) — Classifier-Based Rate Limiting capability was added.
Classifier-Based Rate Limiting (also known as Rate Limit Port ACLs or RL-PACLs) allows
you to create an ACL and apply it on a per-port basis to rate-limit network traffic.
■
CLI (PR_1000342461) — If a trunk is configured, output from the CLI command “show
lldp info remote <port number>" reports incorrect information for the remote management
address. This may result in a failure to discover or map devices connected to these trunks
by management applications that use LLDP discovery (e.g. ProCurve Manager).
■
Enhancement (PR_1000374051) — The 5400zl switches are not detecting packets from
an Avaya G700 PBX or Cajun switch due to irregular Ethernet packets sent by those devices.
This is a workaround that will alter the 5400zl software to allow 100Mb operation on the
upcoming "C" revision of the 1000 Base-T Mini-GBICs (J8177C) that fit in the J8705A module.
The port containing the 1000 Base-T Mini-GBIC can be configured with new speed options
of "auto-100," "100-full," and "100-half."
■
Crash (PR_1000434888) — A switch module may crash with a message similar to:

■
Routing (PR_1000432449) — If the switch is configured with both port security and
routing, a physical port transition on the host may cause the switch to stop transmitting
routed traffic to that host. Clearing the ARP cache resolves this problem until another port
transition occurs.
■
RADIUS (PR_1000442879) — If RADIUS (or TACACS+) keys are configured, and then the
switch is updated to a software revision with the ability to save the security credentials in
the configuration file (K.12.06 or later), the RADIUS keys are no longer shown in output from
the "show run” or “show config" commands until the "include-credentials" command is
issued.
Release K.12.22
The following problems were resolved in release K.12.22.

■
MSTP (PR_1000439775) — The switch generates a topology change when a port goes
off-line. With MSTP enabled and all ports left at default (auto-edge-port), when a port
transitions to offline, a TC will be generated, and the topology change counter increases.
■
Multicast (PR_1000436118) — Multicast forwarding with IGMP is slow and causes an
unacceptable delay in servicing.
■
Enhancement (PR_1000449129) — This enhancement allows MAC or Web-based
authentication to use PEAP/MS-CHAPv2 protocols in addition to the default setting of CHAP.

■
Authentication (PR_1000454714) — Concurrent 802.1X and MAC-authentication does
not give the 802.1X value precedence. This fix gives 802.1X VLAN assignment precedence
over MAC auth RADIUS VLAN assignment.
■
SNMP (PR_1000389902) — The switch is not sending an "embedded URL" within the
SNMP trap for an FFI event to the PCM server monitoring traps. The embedded URL, if sent,
would allow someone looking at the log event on the PCM server to simply click on the URL
and be immediately connected to the switch.

completely copied to flash.
■
Routing (PR_1000744325) — When a PC is using the switch as its default gateway, and
that switch is set with a default route to another device on the same VLAN, duplication of
packets may occur. Symptoms may include seeing TCP packets out of order due to
retransmission.
■
ACL (PR_1000751460) — Manipulating ACEs on a switch with the ACL applied may result
in a switch hang or crash with a message similar to the following.

■
Config (PR_0000000741) — When the rate limit for broadcast or multicast inbound is set
to 0% (i.e. blocking all traffic), output from the CLI command show running config doesn’t
display any rate limit information. If the rate limit is set to 100% (i.e. allow all traffic – the
default), show running config shows that rate-limiting is set to 100%. The correct behavior
is for non-default values to be displayed in the configuration.
Release K.13.17
The following problems were resolved in release K.13.17 (not a public release).
■
RADIUS/Jumbo (PR_ 1000779048) — When an 802.1X enabled port belongs to a VLAN

■
Enhancement (PR_0000003557) — The ability to enable/disable the USB port via CLI and
SNMP was added. Note that after being disabled and subsequently re-enabled, the USB port
may not function consistently with the PCM USB Autorun features until the switch has been
reloaded. For more information, see “Release K.13.43 Enhancements” on page 143.
Release K.13.44
The following problems were resolved in release K.13.44 (Not a public release).
■
ICMP Redirects (PR_0000004534) — With the next hop router is in the same VLAN as
the host machine, the switch does not generate ICMP redirects.
■
Crash (PR_0000009736) — In some situations, ICMP redirects may cause the switch to
crash with a message similar to the following.
PPC Data Storage (Bus Error) exception vector 0x300: Stack
Frame=0x084f2e40
HW Addr=0x00cff108 IP=0x00870e5c Task='mIpPktRecv' Task ID=0x84f3140

Release K.13.45
■
CLI (PR_1000803731) — If the "|" character exists in the banner text of a configuration
file downloaded via TFTP transfer, the banner text may become corrupted, or the TFTP
transfer may fail with a corrupted download file error message.
■
Hang (PR_0000007806) — Using the CLI command no arp on ARP entries that do not exist
may cause the switch to hang.
■
CLI (PR_0000008617) — The copy command for USB options has incorrect optional
parameters for plain text files.
■
RADIUS Accounting (PR_0000004139) — Procurve switches do not send the
accounting-request to a RADIUS server upon execution of the reload CLI command.
■
RADIUS Accounting (PR_0000004145) — An incomplete "Calling-Station-ID" field is
sent in the accounting-request to the RADIUS server upon execution of the boot system CLI
command.
■
RADIUS Accounting (PR_0000004141) — The "Acct-Status-Type" attribute is missing in
the accounting-request to RADIUS server upon execution of the boot system CLI command.
■
Terminal Display (PR_0000008238) — The default boot message is displayed with the
wrong formatting if the terminal width is changed.
■
CLI (PR_0000008236) — The enable CLI command is listed in enable-mode help.
■
UDLD (PR_0000009505) — UDLD misconfiguration (where UDLD is enabled on one side
and disabled on the other) could lead to a unicast packet storm which results in MSTP is
running with multiple roots.
■
CLI (PR_0000008217) — The copy flash CLI command does not allow the user to specify
a source OS location (primary/secondary).
Release K.13.45
The following problems were resolved in release K.13.45.
■
STP (PR_0000010815) — When a switch configured with BPDU protection is added to a
network, if the MSTP configuration of the uplink port is changed from auto-edge to no
auto-edge there is a topology change event that takes place as the switch asserts itself as a
new root.
■
Enhancement (PR_0000010783) — Support was added for the following products.
J9099B - ProCurve 100-BX-D SFP-LC Transceiver
J9100B - ProCurve 100-BX-U SFP-LC Transceiver
J9142B - ProCurve 1000-BX-D SFP-LC Mini-GBIC

J9143B – ProCurve 1000-BX-U SFP-LC Mini-GBIC
For more information, see “Release K.13.45 Enhancements” on page 144.
■
Transceivers (PR_0000010525) — Intermittent self test failure may occur if transceivers
are hot-swapped in and out of the switch in too short a time frame. Note that even with this
fix, transceivers should always be allowed to initialize fully prior to removal and subsequent
re-insertion.
Best Practice Tip: Upon hot insertion of a transceiver, the Mode LED will come on for two
seconds while the transceiver is initialized. Once the Mode LED has extinguished, it is safe to
remove the transceiver.
■
Selftest Failure (PR_0000010937) — Rarely, the switch may experience self test failure
of all the modules. Messages like the following will be visible in the event log. Re-seating the
modules may allow successful self-test to occur.
W <date/time stamp> 00374 chassis: Slot # Failed to
boot-timeout-(SELFTEST)
Release K.13.46
The following problems were resolved in release K.13.46. (Never released.)
■
sFlow (PR_0000003723) — The switch uses the loopback as the sFlow agent address, even
after explicit configuration of the VLAN IP address and the collector receiving the sFlow
packets.
■
SCP/SFTP (PR_0000009174) — Failure to upload a configuration via SFTP/SCP may
occur. As a result, it is possible that the switch may become unresponsive or crash with a
message similar to the following.
Software exception at cfg_edit.cc:313 – in ‘swinitTask’, task ID =
0xa9bbcc0
■
SCP (PR_0000011488) — The switch does not return the scp/sftp session after new
software is uploaded.
■
CLI (PR_0000009997) — The CLI response to the boot set-default flash <primary | secondary>
configuration setting is inconsistent between the zl (5400zl/8212zl) and yl (3500yl/6200yl)
switches, potentially causing issues for customers running scripts.
■
Password Encryption (PR_0000011828) — The Password Manager portion of the
Include Credentials feature is using SHA-0 Instead of SHA-1 for creation of the hash value.
In order to accommodate customers that have worked around this issue, this fix will translate
the configuration and correctly report the use of SHA-0 in the config after a software update
containing this fix.
Example line from password encryption config prior to the fix:
204
Software Fixes in Release K.11.12 - K.13.49
Release K.13.46
password operator sha-1 "lsadkjlkjfsd..."
Example of what that line might look like after the fix:
password operator sha0 "lsadkjlkjfsd...”
No switch administrator intervention is required for the forward configuration translation to
occur.
Support Note: This fix has implications for rolling back the software. If password encryption is
configured and a switch running software with the fix is rolled back to a software version prior
to the fix using the same config file, the config loading will fail, and error messages for each line
containing "sha0" or "sha1" will be displayed on the switch terminal. In the following example,
sha1 was line 14 in the config, and sha0 was on line 15 of the config.
Line:14. Invalid input: *sha1*
Line:15. Invalid input: *sha0*
To avoid configuration compatibility issues, please follow the instructions in the “Best Practices
for Major Software Updates” on page 7. If roll back to a pre-fix software version occurs without
following the Best Practice suggestion (association of a compatible config file with a software
version), the switch administrator should gain access to the switch by hitting <enter> at the
password prompt, and must then reconfigure the password encryption with valid parameters
(the pre-fix CLI syntax is SHA-1, versus the post-fix CLI use of SHA0 or SHA1).
The default hash value for newly configured password encryption on a software version with
this fix is SHA1.
■
CLI (PR_0000009860) — Output from the CLI command show module erroneously reports
the 8212zl System Support Module (SSM) product number as J8784A instead of J9095A.
■
Crash (PR_0000011049) — Copying a configuration with mirroring enabled from USB to
switch may trigger a software exception with a message similar to the following.
Software exception at cli_mirror.c:9953 -- in 'mftTask', task ID
= 0xa932bc0
■
VRRP (PR_0000003634) — When the VRRP Owner router (with preempt-delay-time
configured) is rebooting, the VRRP Backup router momentarily gives up Master role (but
does resume it) before the VRRP Owner is back online. This may cause an unexpected
outage.
■
DHCP Relay (PR_0000011726) — When the VRRP backup router is the master for the
network, DHCP Discover packets are relayed with a corrupted IP address for the Relay
Agent. This causes the server to look up a client address range for an invalid network
segment, and ultimately fail to communicate with the DHCP Server.
■
PC/Phone Authentication (PR_0000010104) — When using an IP phone in tandem with
a PC, sometimes the post-authentication VLAN assignment of the PC is delayed.

Software Fixes in Release K.11.12 - K.13.49
Release K.13.47
Release K.13.47
The following problems were resolved in release K.13.47. (Never released.)
■
OSPF ECMP (PR_0000004798) — Some IP subnets which are multiple hops away are not
reachable from certain clients despite the presence of the target subnet in the switch routing
table. Workaround: Initiate a traceroute from the switch to the client PC.
Release K.13.48
The following problems were resolved in release K.13.48. (Never released.)
■
DHCP Relay (PR_0000013661/000008196) — After adding a second IP Address to a
VLAN with IP Helper configured, the switch Relay Agent IP Address gets corrupted such that
the DHCP server does not recognize the request as part of a configured scope, and drops the
request. Workaround: Save the configuration and reload the switch after configuration of an
IP Helper address and DHCP Relay.
■
Module/Fabric Errors (PR_0000012418) — Switches running system software version
K.12.45 or higher may see one or more of the following errors in the event log, potentially
causing false self-test failures.

■
OSPF ECMP (PR_0000013777) — When the switch is acting as an ECMP router with
multiple next hops available, sometimes it fails to route packets received on a local VLAN
to hosts that are reachable via ECMP routes. The result is intermittent connectivity to hosts
on the other side of ECMP routes.
■
Boot ROM (PR_0000014318) — This build introduces the new K.12.14 boot ROM, a
prerequisite for future updates. Please do not interrupt power to the switch during the
software/boot ROM update!
