Introducing the Switch

The HP ProCurve 2915-8G-PoE and 2615-8-PoE Switches are multiport switches that can be used to build high-performance switched workgroup networks. These switches are store-and-forward devices that offer low latency for high-speed networking. The switches also support Power over Ethernet

(PoE) technologies.

HP ProCurve 2915-8G-PoE Switch (J9562A)

HP ProCurve 2615-8-PoE Switch (J9565A)

Throughout this manual, these switches will be referred to as the Switch 2915-

8G-PoE and the Switch 2615-8-PoE.

■ The Switch 2915-8G-PoE has 8 auto-sensing 10/100/1000Base-T RJ-45 ports with two Gigabit Uplink dual-personality ports (ports 9 and 10).

The Switch 2615-8-PoE has 8 auto-sensing 10/100Base-TX RJ-45 ports with two Gigabit Uplink dual-personality ports (ports 9 and 10).

Power-over-Ethernet or PoE power (ports 1 through 8 only)

- Both switches support PoE technology, which allows IP telephones, wireless

LAN Access Points and other appliances to receive power as well as data over existing LAN cabling, without needing to modify the existing

Ethernet infrastructure. The switches are designed with an internal PoE power supply capable of providing 67 watts of PoE power. Each Switch port can provide up to 15.4 watts (or 7.5 watts if all ports are used) of PoE power to connected devices. For further information regarding PoE power, see the PoE Planning and Implementation Guide, which is on the ProCurve Web site at

www.hp.com/go/procurve/manuals.

Switch Features

Switch Features

The features of the switches include:

■ 8 auto-sensing 10/100/1000Base-T PoE or 10/100Base-TX PoE RJ-45 ports with Auto-MDIX.

Two dual-personality uplink ports (1000Base-T RJ-45 or mini-GBIC).

Power over Ethernet (PoE) operation—the switches are IEEE 802.3af compliant and provide up to 15.4W per port to power IP phones, wireless access points, Web cameras, and more. For more information, see the PoE

Planning and Implementation Guide

, which is on the ProCurve Web site at

www.hp.com/go/procurve/manuals

.

The switches support some pre-standard PoE devices. However, the use of a cross-over cable may be required.

Plug-and-play networking—all ports are enabled—just connect the network cables to active network devices and your switched network is operational.

Auto-MDIX on all twisted-pair ports, meaning that all twisted-pair connections can be made using straight-through cables. Cross-over cables are not required, although they will also work.

Automatic learning of the hardware addresses in each switch’s 8000address forwarding table, (with configurable address aging value).

Automatically negotiated full-duplex operation for the 10/100/1000 RJ-45 ports when connected to other auto-negotiating devices. a “Save Power” mode option that keeps port LEDs turned off except for when the LED Mode select button is pressed.

■ an automatic low-power mode for ports when a link is not present.

Easy management of the switches through several available interfaces:

console interface

—a full featured, easy to use, VT-100 terminal interface that is especially good for out-of-band switch management or for Telnet access to the switch.

Web browser interface

—an easy to use built-in graphical interface that can be accessed from common Web browsers.

ProCurve Manager

—an SNMP-based, graphical network management tool that you can use to manage your entire network.

Support for the Spanning Tree Protocol to eliminate network loops

Support for up to 256 IEEE 802.1Q-compliant VLANs so you can divide the attached end nodes into logical groupings that fit your business needs.

Installation Precautions

The rack or cabinet should be adequately secured to prevent it from becoming unstable and/or falling over.

Devices installed in a rack or cabinet should be mounted as low as possible, with the heaviest devices at the bottom and progressively lighter devices installed above.

Wall-mount the switch with network ports facing up (away from the floor). Do not wall-mount the switch with the network ports facing down (toward the floor) or ventilation ducts facing up or down.

Use only the AC/DC power adapter supplied with the switch for connection to an AC power source.

Ensure the power source circuits are properly grounded, then use the power cord supplied with the switch to connect it to the power source.

If your installation requires a different power cord than the one supplied with the switch, ensure the cord is adequately sized for the switch’s current requirements. In addition, be sure to use a power cord displaying the mark of the safety agency that defines the regulations for power cords in your country. The mark is your assurance that the power cord can be used safely with the switch. If the supplied power cord does not fit, contact ProCurve Networking support.

When installing the switch, the AC outlet should be near the switch and should be easily accessible in case the switch must be powered off.

Ensure the switch does not overload the power circuits, wiring, and overcurrent protection. To determine the possibility of overloading the supply circuits, add together the ampere ratings of all devices installed on the same circuit as the switch and compare the total with the rating limit for the circuit. Maximum ampere ratings are usually printed on the devices near the AC power connectors.

Do not install the switch in an environment where the operating ambient temperature might exceed 45

°C (113°F). This includes a fully-enclosed rack. Ensure the air flow around the sides and back of the switch is not restricted. Leave at least 7.6 cm (3 inches) for cooling.

Ensure all port covers are installed when the port is not in use.

Installing the Switch

Installation Procedures

Installation Procedures

These steps summarize your switch installation. The rest of this chapter provides details on these steps.

1.

Prepare the installation site (

page 2-5

).

Make sure the physical environment into which you will be installing the switch is properly prepared, including having the correct network cabling ready to connect

to the switch and having an appropriate location for the switch. See page

2-3

for some installation precautions.

2.

Verify the switch passes self test (

page 2-6

).

Plug the switch into a power source and observe that the LEDs on the switch’s front panel indicate correct switch operation.

3.

Mount the switch (

page 2-8

).

The switches can be mounted in a 19-inch telco rack, in an equipment cabinet, on a wall, or on a horizontal surface.

4.

Connect power to the switch (

page 2-15

).

Once the switch is mounted, plug it into the main power source.

5.

Connect the network devices (

page 2-17

).

Using the appropriate network cables, connect the network devices to the switch ports.

6.

(Optional) Install mini-GBICs (

page 2-18

).

The switch has two or four slots for installing mini-GBICs. Depending on where you install the switch, it may be easier to install the mini-GBICs first. Mini-GBICs can be hot swapped—they can be installed or removed while the switch is powered on.

7.

(Optional) Connect a console to the switch (

page 2-20

).

You may wish to modify the switch’s configuration, for example, to configure an IP address so it can be managed using a Web browser, from an SNMP network management station, or through a Telnet session. Configuration changes can be made by using the included console cable to connect a PC to the switch’s console port.

At this point, your switch is fully installed. See the rest of this chapter if you need more detailed information on any of these installation steps.

N o t e

• The port LEDs on the front of the switch go into their normal operational mode:

– If the ports are connected to active network devices, the Link

LEDs stay on and the Mode LEDs behave according to the mode selected. In the default mode ( Act), the Mode LEDs should be blinking indicating port activity.

– If the ports are not connected to active network devices, the Link and Mode LEDs will stay off.

If the LED display is different than what is described above, especially if the

Fault and Test LEDs stay on for more than 60 seconds or they start flashing, the self test has not completed correctly. Refer to chapter 4,

“Troubleshooting”

for diagnostic help.

3. Mount the Switch

After the switch passes self test, it is ready to be mounted in a stable location.

The switch can be mounted in these ways: in a rack or cabinet on a horizontal surface on a wall

Rack or Cabinet Mounting

The switch can be rack mounted using the rack-mounting brackets supplied.

Note that the mounting brackets have multiple mounting holes and can be rotated allowing for a wide variety of mounting options. Secure the rack in accordance with the manufacture’s safety guidelines.

For safe operation, please read the mounting precautions on

page 2-3

, before mounting a switch.

The 12-24 screws supplied with the switch are the correct threading for standard EIA/TIA open 19-inch racks.

6. Installing or Removing mini-GBICs

You can install or remove a mini-GBIC from a mini-GBIC slot without having to power off the switch. Use only HP ProCurve mini-GBICs.

Hot swapping transceivers is supported. You can install or remove a transceiver with the switch powered on, a reset will not occur. However, rapid hotswaps are not recommended. Wait a few seconds for the Mode LED to turn on (during initialization), and then turn off.

The mini-GBIC slots are shared with 10/100/1000Base-T RJ-45 ports. When a mini-GBIC is installed in a slot, the associated RJ-45 port is disabled and cannot be used.

Ensure the network cable is NOT connected when you install or remove a mini-GBIC.

Use only supported genuine HP ProCurve mini-GBICs with your switch. Non-

ProCurve mini-GBICs are not supported, and their use may result in product malfunction. Should you require additional HP ProCurve mini-GBICs, contact your ProCurve Networking Sales and Service Office or authorized dealer.

Installing the mini-GBICs:

Remove the protective plastic cover and retain it for later use. Hold the mini-

GBIC by its sides and gently insert it into either of the slots on the switch until the mini-GBIC clicks into place.

The HP ProCurve mini-GBICs are Class 1 laser devices. Avoid direct eye exposure to the beam coming from the transmit port.

2-18

Installing the Switch

Installation Procedures

N o t e

Figure 2-13. Installing a mini-GBIC (SFP)

Removing the mini-GBICs

You should disconnect the network cable from the mini-GBIC before removing it from the switch.

Depending on when you purchased your ProCurve mini-GBIC, it may have either of three different release mechanisms: a plastic tab on the bottom of the mini-GBIC, a plastic collar around the mini-GBIC, or a wire bail.

To remove the mini-GBICs that have the plastic tab or plastic collar, push the tab or collar toward the switch until you see the mini-GBIC release from the switch (you can see it move outward slightly), and then pull it from the slot.

To remove the mini-GBICs that have the wire bail, lower the bail until it is approximately horizontal, and then using the bail, pull the mini-GBIC from the slot.

Replace the protective plastic cover on the mini-GBIC.

Connecting Cables to mini-GBICs

If you have any mini-GBICs installed in the switch, the type of network connections you will need to use depends on the type of mini-GBICs you have installed. See the table on

page 1-2

, and appendix A, “Specifications”

, for the mini-GBIC cabling information.

2-19

Installing the Switch

Installation Procedures

For mini-GBIC ports, and in general for all the switch ports, when a network cable from an active network device is connected to the port, the port LED for that port should go on. If the port LED does not go on when the network cable is connected to the port, see

“Diagnosing with the LEDs”

in chapter 4,

“Troubleshooting”.

7. (Optional) Connect a Console to the Switch

The switches have a full-featured, easy to use console interface for performing switch management tasks including the following: monitor switch and port status and observe network activity statistics modify the switch’s configuration to optimize switch performance, enhance network traffic control, and improve network security read the event log and access diagnostic tools to help in troubleshooting download new software to the switch add passwords to control access to the switch from the console, Web browser interface, and network management stations

The console can be accessed through these methods:

Out-of-band:

The switches come with a serial cable for connecting a PC or VT-100 terminal, to be used as a console, directly to the switch.

In-Band:

Access the console using Telnet from a PC or UNIX station on the network, and a VT-100 terminal emulator. This method requires that you first configure the switch with an IP address and subnet mask by using either out-of-band console access or through DHCP/Bootp. For more information on IP addressing and on starting a Telnet session, see

chapter 3, “Configuring the Switch” , in the Management and

Configuration Guide

, which is on the ProCurve Web site at

www.hp.com/ go/procurve/manuals

.

The switches can simultaneously support one out-of-band console session through the Console Port and in-band Telnet console sessions.

Terminal Configuration

To connect a console to the switch, configure the PC terminal emulator as a

DEC VT-100 (ANSI) terminal or use a VT-100 terminal, and configure either one to operate with these settings: any baud rate from 1200 to 115200 (the switch senses the speed)

8 data bits, 1 stop bit, no parity, and flow control set to Xon/Xoff for the Windows Terminal program, also disable (uncheck) the “Use

Function, Arrow, and Ctrl Keys for Windows” option

2-20

Installing the Switch

Installation Procedures

■ for the Hilgraeve HyperTerminal program, select the “Terminal keys” option for the “Function, arrow, and ctrl keys act as” parameter

If you want to operate the console using a different configuration, make sure you change the settings on both the terminal and on the switch so they are compatible. Change the switch settings first, then change the terminal settings, then reboot the switch and reestablish the console session.

Direct Console Access

To connect a console to the switch, follow these steps:

1.

Connect the PC or terminal to the switch’s Console Port using the console cable included with the switch.

(If your PC or terminal has a 25-pin serial connector, first attach a 9-pin to 25-pin straight-through adapter at one end of the console cable.)

2.

Turn on the terminal or PC’s power and, if using a PC, start the PC terminal program.

The switches are designed to be used as desktop switches to which end nodes, printers and other peripherals, and servers are directly connected, as shown in the above illustration. The switches can also supply PoE power to end devices such as IP telephones.

2-22

Installing the Switch

Sample Network Topologies

As shown in the above illustration, the IP telephones can be connected in line, that is, between the switch and the end device, in this case a PC. The IP telephones have two ports, one in and one out. Therefore the phone receives voice and power from the switch and the PC can send and receive data through the phone to the switch.

The end node devices are connected to the switch by straight-through or crossover twisted-pair cables. Either cable type can be used because of the

Auto-MDIX feature on the switches.

Installing the Switch

Sample Network Topologies

The switches also work well as segment switches. That is, with their high performance, they can be used for interconnecting network segments— simply connect the network devices that form those segments to the switches.

In the illustration above, 2915-8G-PoE and 2615-8-PoE switches with PCs, printers, and local servers attached, are both connected to a non-PoE switch.

The devices attached to the two switches can now communicate with each other through the non-PoE switch. They can also all communicate with the server that is connected to a 1000Base-T port on the Switch 2915-8G-PoE.

As shown in the illustration above, the IP telephones have been inserted in between the Switch 2915-8G-PoE and the PCs, and wireless access points

(WAPs) have been connected to the Switch 2915-8G-PoE and a Switch 2615-

8-PoE. Both the telephones and WAPs will receive PoE power from each of the switches. Only devices directly connected to PoE switches can receive

PoE power. Devices connected to the non-PoE switch cannot receive PoE power.

Because the switches have the Auto-MDIX feature, the connections between the switches and end nodes or servers can be through category 5 straightthrough or crossover twisted-pair cable. Category 3 or 4 cable can also be used if the connection is 10 Mbps only. In all cases, the device ports must be configured to auto negotiate the link characteristics for this feature to work.

The connections between the switches are through fiber-optic cabling connected to Gigabit transceivers. All the devices on these network segments can access other network resources that are connected elsewhere on the network. Always remember when connecting fiber-optics that all components match in specification.

2-24

Installing the Switch

Sample Network Topologies

Stacking the Switch

The switches can be connected together, through standard network connections, and managed through a single IP address. Up to 16 switches can be connected together in such a “virtual stack”.

You identify a switch as the “Commander” and give that switch an IP address.

Up to 15 other switches in the network can then easily be configured as

Members of the stack and managed through the Commander’s IP address. The management includes Telnet access and Web browser interface access to the

Commander and to each Member switch through the Commander.

For more information on stacking your switch, see the Management and

Configuration Guide,

which is on the ProCurve Web site at

Configuring the Switch

N o t e

This chapter is a guide for using the console Switch Setup screen to quickly assign an IP (Internet Protocol) address and subnet mask to the switch, set a

Manager password, and, optionally, configure other basic features.

For more information on using the switch console and the Web browser interface, please see the Management and Configuration Guide, which is on the ProCurve Web site at

www.hp.com/go/procurve/manuals

.

Recommended Minimal Configuration

In the factory default configuration, the switch has no IP (Internet Protocol) address and subnet mask, and no passwords. In this state, it can be managed only through a direct console connection. To manage the switch through inband (networked) access, you should configure the switch with an IP address and subnet mask compatible with your network. Also, you should configure a Manager password to control access privileges from the console and Web browser interface. Other parameters in the Switch Setup screen can be left at their default settings or you can configure them with values you enter.

Many other features can be configured through the switch’s console interface, to optimize the switch’s performance, to enhance your control of the network traffic, and to improve network security. Once an IP address has been configured on the switch, these features can be accessed more conveniently through a remote Telnet session, through the switch’s Web browser interface, and from an SNMP network management station running a network management program. For a listing of switch features available with and without an IP address, refer to “How IP Addressing Affects Switch Operation” in the Management and Configuration Guide.

For more information on IP addressing, refer to “IP Configuration” in the

Management and Configuration Guide

.

By default, the switch is configured to acquire an IP address configuration from a DHCP or Bootp server. To use DHCP/Bootp instead of the manual method described in this chapter, see “DHCP/Bootp Operation” in the

Management and Configuration Guide

.

Troubleshooting

This chapter describes how to troubleshoot your ProCurve 2915-8G-PoE and

2615-8-PoE switches. This document describes troubleshooting mostly from a hardware perspective. You can perform more in-depth troubleshooting on these devices using the software tools available with the switches, including the full-featured console interface, the built-in Web browser interface, and

ProCurve Manager, the SNMP-based network management tool. For more information, see the chapter “Troubleshooting” in the Management and

Basic Troubleshooting Tips

Most problems are caused by the following situations. Check for these items first when starting your troubleshooting:

Connecting to devices that have a fixed full-duplex configuration.

The RJ-45 ports are configured as “Auto”. That is, when connecting to attached devices, the switch operates in one of two ways to determine the link speed and the communication mode (half duplex or full duplex):

• If the connected device is also configured to Auto, the switch will automatically negotiate both link speed and communication mode.

• If the connected device has a fixed configuration, for example 100

Mbps, at half or full duplex, the switch will automatically sense the link speed, but will default to a communication mode of half duplex.

4-1

Troubleshooting

Basic Troubleshooting Tips

C a u t i o n

Because the switches behave in this way (in compliance with the IEEE

802.3 standard)

, if a device connected to the switch has a fixed configuration at full duplex, the device will not connect correctly to the switch.

The result will be high error rates and very inefficient communications between the switch and the device.

Ensure all devices connected to the switches are configured to auto negotiate, or are configured to connect at half duplex (all hubs are configured this way, for example).

Faulty or loose cables.

Look for loose or obviously faulty connections.

If the cables appear to be OK, make sure the connections are snug. If that does not correct the problem, try a different cable.

Non-standard cables.

Non-standard and miswired cables may cause network collisions and other network problems, and can seriously impair network performance. Use a new correctly-wired cable or compare your

cable to the cable in appendix A, “Cabling and Technology Information

Specifications”

for pinouts and correct cable wiring. A category 5 cable tester is a recommended tool for every 100Base-TX and 1000Base-T network installation.

Improper Network Topologies.

It is important to make sure you have a valid network topology. Common topology faults include excessive cable length and excessive repeater delays between end nodes. If you have network problems after recent changes to the network, change back to the previous topology. If you no longer experience the problems, the new topology is probably at fault. Sample topologies are shown at the end of chapter 2 in this book, and some topology configuration guidelines can be found online at the ProCurve Web site,

www.hp.com/go/procurve

.

In addition, you should make sure that your network topology contains

no data path loops

. Between any two end nodes, there should be only one active cabling path at any time. Data path loops will cause broadcast storms that will severely impact your network performance.

For your Switch, if you wish to build redundant paths between important nodes in your network to provide some fault tolerance, you should enable

Spanning Tree Protocol

support on the switch. This ensures that only one of the redundant paths is active at any time, thus avoiding data path loops. Spanning Tree can be enabled through the switch console or the

Web browser interface.

The switches also support Trunking, which allows multiple network cables to be used for a single network connection without causing a data path loop. For more information on Spanning Tree and Trunking, see the

Management and Configuration Guide,

which is on the ProCurve Web site at

www.hp.com/go/procurve/manuals

.

4-2

Troubleshooting

Basic Troubleshooting Tips

Check the port configuration.

A port on your switch may not be operating as you expect because it has been put into a “blocking” state by

Spanning Tree, GVRP (automatic VLANs), or LACP (automatic trunking).

(Note that the normal operation of the Spanning Tree, GVRP, and LACP features may put the port in a blocking state.) Or, the port just may have been configured as disabled through software.

Use the switch console to determine the port’s configuration and verify that there is not an improper or undesired configuration of any of the switch features that may be affecting the port. For more information, see the Management and Configuration Guide.

For more information on possible network problems and their solutions, refer to the technical note “Troubleshooting LAN Performance and Intermittent

Connectivity Problems”, which can be found on the ProCurve Web site,

www.hp.com/go/procurve

, in the Reference Library section, A-Z Index.

Troubleshooting

Diagnosing with the LEDs

Tip Problem

The switch is not plugged into an active AC power source, or the switch’s power supply may have failed.

A switch hardware failure has occurred. All the LEDs will stay on indefinitely.

The switch has experienced a software failure during self test.

Diagnostic Tips:

Solution

1. Verify the power cord is plugged into an active power source and to the switch. Make sure these connections are snug.

2. Try power cycling the switch by unplugging and plugging the power cord back in.

3. If the Power LED is still not on, verify the AC power source works by plugging another device into the outlet. Or try plugging the switch into a different outlet or try a different power cord.

If the power source and power cord are OK and this condition persists, the switch power supply may have failed. Call your ProCurve Networking authorized network reseller, or use the electronic support services from HP to get assistance. For Warranty service, see the “Software End User License Agreement and Hardware Limiited Warranty” booklet.

Try power cycling the switch. If the fault indication reoccurs, the switch may have failed.

Call your ProCurve Networking authorized network reseller, or use the electronic support services from HP to get assistance. For Warranty service, see the “Software End User

License Agreement and Hardware Limiited Warranty” booklet.

The network port for which the LED is flashing has experienced a self test or initialization failure.

1. Try resetting the switch by pressing the Reset button on the front of the switch, or by power cycling the switch.

2. If the fault indication reoccurs, attach a console to the switch (as indicated in chapter 2) and configure it to operate at 9600 baud. Then, reset the switch. Messages should appear on the console screen and in the console log identifying the error condition. You can view the console log at that point by selecting it from the console

Main Menu or by typing “Show log” at the Manager command prompt (#).

If necessary to resolve the problem, contact your ProCurve Networking authorized network reseller, or use the electronic support services from HP to get assistance. For

Warranty service, see the “Software End User License Agreement and Hardware Limiited

Warranty” booklet.

Try power cycling the switch. If the fault indication reoccurs, the switch port may have failed. Call your ProCurve Networking authorized network reseller, or use the electronic support services from HP to get assistance. For Warranty service, see the “Software End

User License Agreement and Hardware Limiited Warranty” booklet.

If the port is a mini-GBIC, verify that it is one of the mini-GBICs supported by the switch.

Unsupported mini-GBICs will be identified with this fault condition. The supported

mini-GBICs are listed in Chapter 2, “Installing the Switch”

on

page 2-18 . The

mini-GBICs are also tested when they are “hot-swapped”—installed or changed while the switch is powered on.

To verify the port has failed, remove and reinstall the mini-GBIC without powering off the switch. If the port fault indication reoccurs, you will have to replace the mini-GBIC. Check the event log to see why the mini-GBIC failed.

Troubleshooting

Diagnosing with the LEDs

Tip Problem

The network connection is not working properly.

Solution

Try the following procedures:

• For the indicated port, verify that both ends of the cabling, at the switch and the connected device, are connected properly.

• Verify the connected device and switch are both powered on and operating correctly.

• Verify you have used the correct cable type for the connection:

– For twisted-pair connections to the fixed 10/100 or 10/100/1000 ports, if the port is configured to “Auto” (auto negotiate), either straight-through or crossover cables can be used because of the switch’s “Auto-MDIX” feature and the Auto MDI/MDI-

X feature of the 10/100/1000-T port.

Note:

If the switch port configuration is changed to one of the

fixed configuration

options (for example, 100 Mbps/Full Duplex), then the port operates as

MDI-X only

and you must use the correct type of cable for the connection. In general, for connecting an end node (MDI port) to the switch, use straight-through cable; for connecting to MDI-X ports on hubs, other switches, and routers, use crossover cable.

– For fiber-optic connections, verify the transmit port on the switch is connected to the receive port on the connected device, and the switch receive port is connected to the transmit port on the connected device.

• For the dual-personality 10/100/1000-T ports, be sure a mini-GBIC is not installed in the associated slot.

• For 1000Base-T connections, verify the network cabling complies with the IEEE 802.3ab standard. The cable should be installed according to the ANSI/TIA/EIA-568-A-5 specifications. Cable testing should comply with the stated limitations for Attenuation,

Near-End Crosstalk, Far-End Crosstalk, Equal-Level Far-End Crosstalk (ELFEXT),

Multiple Disturber ELFEXT, and Return Loss.

The cable verification process must include all patch cables from any end devices, including the switch, to any patch panels in the cabling path.

• Verify the port has not been disabled through a switch configuration change. You can use the console interface, or, if you have configured an IP address on the switch, use the Web browser interface to determine the state of the port and re-enable the port if necessary.

• Verify the switch port configuration matches the configuration of the attached device.

For example, if the switch port is configured as “Auto”, the port on the attached device also MUST be configured as “Auto”. Depending on the port type, twisted-pair or fiberoptic, if the configurations don’t match, the results could be a very unreliable connection, or no link at all.

• If the other procedures don’t resolve the problem, try using a different port or a different cable.

4-6

Troubleshooting

Diagnosing with the LEDs

Tip Problem

The port may be improperly configured, or the port may be in a “blocking” state by the normal operation of the Spanning

Tree, LACP, or

IGMP features.

Solution

Use the switch console to see if the port is part of a dynamic trunk (through the LACP feature) or to see if Spanning Tree is enabled on the switch, and to see if the port may have been put into a “blocking” state by those features. The show lacp command displays the port status for the LACP feature; the show spanning-tree command displays the port status for Spanning Tree.

Also check the Port Status screen using the show interfaces command to see if the port has been configured as “disabled”.

Other switch features that may affect the port operation include VLANs and IGMP. Use the switch console to see how the port is configured for these features.

For software troubleshooting tips, see the chapter “Troubleshooting” in the

Management and Configuration Guide

, which is on the ProCurve Web site at

www.hp.com/go/ procurve/manuals

.

Ensure also, that the device at the other end of the connection is indicating a good link to the switch. If it is not, the problem may be with the cabling between the devices or the connectors on the cable.

Troubleshooting

Hardware Diagnostic Tests

Hardware Diagnostic Tests

Testing the Switch by Resetting It

If you believe the switch is not operating correctly, you can reset the switch to test its circuitry and operating code. To reset a switch, either: unplug and plug in the power cord (power cycling) press the Reset button on the front of the switch

Power cycling the switch and pressing the Reset button both cause the switch to perform its power-on self test. These reset processes also cause any network traffic counters to be reset to zero, and cause the System Up Time timer to reset to zero.

Checking the Switch LEDs

The self test passes if the Fault and Self Test LEDs on the front of the switch go off after approximately 50 seconds. If these LEDs stay on longer than 60 seconds or begin flashing, there may be a problem with the switch.

See

“Diagnosing with the LEDs” on page 4-4 for information on interpreting

the LED patterns.

Checking Console Messages

Useful diagnostic messages may be displayed on the console screen when the switch is reset. As described in chapter 2 under step 7, Connect a Console to the Switch connect a PC running a VT-100 terminal emulator program or a standard VT-100 terminal to the switch’s Console Port and configure it to run at 9600 baud, and with the other terminal communication settings shown on

“Configuring the Switch”

. Then, when you reset the switch, note the messages that

are displayed. Additionally, you can check the switch event log, which can be accessed from the console using the

show log command, or from the console

Main Menu after entering the

Menu command.

4-10

Troubleshooting

Hardware Diagnostic Tests

Testing Twisted-Pair Cabling

Network cables that fail to provide a link or provide an unreliable link between the switch and the connected network device may not be compatible with the

IEEE 802.3 Type 10Base-T, 100Base-TX, or 1000Base-T standards. The twistedpair cables attached to the switch must be compatible with the appropriate standards. To verify your cable is compatible with these standards, use a qualified cable test device.

Testing Switch-to-Device Network Communications

You can perform the following communication tests to verify the network is operating correctly between the switch and any connected device that can respond correctly to the communication test.

Link Test

—a physical layer test that sends IEEE 802.2 test packets to any device identified by its MAC address

Ping Test

—a network layer test used on IP networks that sends test packets to any device identified by its IP address

These tests can be performed through the switch console interface from a terminal connected to the switch or through a Telnet connection, or from the switch’s Web browser interface. For more information, see the Management

and Configuration Guide,

which is on the ProCurve Web site at

www.hp.com/ go/procurve/manuals

.

Testing End-to-End Network Communications

Both the switch and the cabling can be tested by running an end-to-end communications test—a test that sends known data from one network device to another through the switch. For example, if you have two PCs on the network that have LAN adapters between which you can run a link-level test or Ping test through the switch, you can use this test to verify that the entire communication path between the two PCs is functioning correctly. See your

LAN adapter documentation for more information on running a link test or

Ping test.

Troubleshooting

Restoring the Factory Default Configuration

N o t e

Restoring the Factory Default

Configuration

As part of your troubleshooting process on the Switch, it may become necessary to return the switch configuration to the factory default settings.

This clears any passwords, clears the console event log, resets the network counters to zero, performs a complete self test, and reboots the switch into its factory default configuration including deleting the IP address, if one is configured.

This process removes all switch configuration changes that you have made from the factory default settings. This includes, for example, configuration of

VLANs, Spanning Tree, trunks, and stacking. Returning the configuration of these features to their factory default settings (usually disabling them) may result in network connectivity issues.

If the switch has a valid configuration, and you are restoring the factory default settings for a reason other than configuration problems, you should save the switch configuration prior to performing the factory default reset. Then, after the reset and resolution of the original problem, you can restore the saved configuration to the switch. For both the save and restore processes, you can use the console

copy command. For more information on this command, see the Management and Configuration Guide, which is on the ProCurve Web site at

www.hp.com/go/procurve/manuals

.

You can restore the factory default configuration either on the switch itself, or through the switch console.

To execute the factory default reset on the switch, perform these steps:

1.

Using pointed objects, simultaneously press both the Reset and Clear buttons on the front of the switch. The power and fault lights come on.

2.

Continue to press the Clear button while releasing the Reset button.

3.

When the Self Test LED begins to flash, release the Clear button.

The switch will then complete its self test and begin operating with its configuration restored to the factory default settings.

To restore the factory default configuration using the console, execute the

erase startup-config command from the console command prompt.

Note on 1000BASE-T Cable Requirements.

The Category 5 networking cables that work for 100BASE-TX connections should also work for

1000BASE-T, as long as all four-pairs are connected. But, for the most robust connections, you should use cabling that complies with the Category 5e specifications, as described in Addendum 5 to the TIA-568-A standard (ANSI/

TIA/EIA-568-A-5).

Because of the increased speed provided by 1000BASE-T (Gigabit-T), network cable quality is more important than for either 10BASE-T or 100BASE-TX.

Cabling plants being used to carry 1000BASE-T networking must comply with the IEEE 802.3ab standards. In particular, the cabling must pass tests for

Attenuation, Near-End Crosstalk (NEXT), and Far-End Crosstalk (FEXT).

Additionally, unlike the cables for 100BASE-TX, the 1000BASE-T cables must pass tests for Equal-Level Far-End Crosstalk (ELFEXT) and Return Loss.

When testing your cabling, be sure to include the patch cables that connect the switch and other end devices to the patch panels on your site. The patch cables are frequently overlooked when testing cable and they must also comply with the cabling standards.

Mode Conditioning Patch Cord

Mode Conditioning Patch Cord

The following information applies to installations in which multimode fiberoptic cables are connected to a Gigabit-LX port. Multimode cable has a design characteristic called “Differential Mode Delay”, which requires the transmission signals be “conditioned” to compensate for the cable design and thus prevent resulting transmission errors.

Under certain circumstances, depending on the cable used and the lengths of the cable runs, an external Mode Conditioning Patch Cord may need to be installed between the Gigabit-LX and the multimode network cable to provide the transmission conditioning. If you experience a high number of transmission errors on those ports, usually CRC or FCS errors, you may need to install one of these patch cords between the fiber-optic port in your switch and your multimode fiber-optic network cabling, at both ends of the network link.

The patch cord consists of a short length of single mode fiber cable coupled to graded-index multimode fiber cable on the transmit side, and only multimode cable on the receive side. The section of single mode fiber is connected in such a way that it minimizes the effects of the differential mode delay in the multimode cable.

N o t e

Most of the time, if you are using good quality graded-index multimode fiber cable that adheres to the standards listed in Appendix B, there should not be a need to use mode conditioning patch cords in your network. This is especially true if the fiber runs in your network are relatively short.

Installing the Patch Cord

As shown in the illustration below, connect the patch cord to the ProCurve transceiver with the section of single mode fiber plugged in to the Tx

(transmit) port. Then, connect the other end of the patch cord to your network cabling patch panel, or directly to the network multimode fiber.

If you connect the patch cord directly to the network cabling, you may need to install a female-to-female adapter to allow the cables to be connected together.

Make sure you purchase a patch cord that has appropriate connectors on each end, and has multimode fibers that match the characteristics of the multimode fiber in your network. Most important, the core diameter of the multimode patch cord must match the core diameter of the multimode cable infrastructure (either 50 or 62.5 microns).

Twisted-Pair Cable/Connector Pin-Outs

N o t e

Twisted-Pair Cable/Connector Pin-Outs

The Auto-MDIX Feature:

In the default configuration, “Auto”, the fixed 10/

100/1000Base-T ports on the switches all automatically detect the type of port on the connected device and operate as either an MDI or MDI-X port, whichever is appropriate. So for any connection, a straight-through twistedpair cable can be used—you no longer have to use crossover cables, although crossover cables can also be used for any of the connections. (The 10/100/

1000-T ports support the IEEE 802.3ab standard, which includes the “Auto-

MDIX” feature.)

If you connect a switch twisted-pair port to another switch or hub, which typically have MDI-X ports, the switch port automatically operates as an MDI port. If you connect it to an end node, such as a server or PC, which typically have MDI ports, the switch port operates as an MDI-X port. In all cases, you can use standard straight-through cables or crossover cables.

If you happen to use a correctly wired crossover cable, though, the switch will still be able to automatically detect the MDI/MDI-X operation and link correctly to the connected device.

Using Fixed Configurations.

If the port configuration is changed to any of the fixed configurations though, for example 100 Mbps/full duplex, the port operates as MDI-X only and the correct cable type must be used: for connections to MDI ports, such as end nodes, use a straight-through cable; for connections to MDI-X ports, such as on hubs and other switches, use a crossover cable.

Other Wiring Rules:

All twisted-pair wires used for 10 Mbps, and 100 Mbps operation must be twisted through the entire length of the cable. The wiring sequence must conform to EIA/TIA 568-B (not USOC). See “Twisted-Pair Cable Pin

Assignments” later in this appendix for a listing of the signals used on each pin.

For 1000Base-T connections, all four pairs of wires in the cable must be available for data transmission.

■ For 10 Mbps connections to the ports, you can use Category 3, 4, or 5 unshielded twisted-pair cable, as supported by the IEEE 802.3 Type

10Base-T standard.

A-8

Specifications

Twisted-Pair Cable/Connector Pin-Outs

For 100 Mbps connections to the ports, use 100-ohm Category 5 UTP or

STP cable only, as supported by the IEEE 802.3u Type 100Base-TX standard.

For 1000 Mbps connections, 100-ohm Category 5e or better cabling is recommended.

To provide Power over Ethernet to the access point, all 4 pairs must be connected for any network cable attached to this port; the cable must meet ISO/DIS 11801 Class D requirements and IEEE 802.3af requirements.

Specifications

Twisted-Pair Cable/Connector Pin-Outs

Straight-through Twisted-Pair Cable for

10 Mbps or 100 Mbps Network Connections

Because of the Auto-MDIX operation of the 10/100 ports on the switch, for all network connections, to PCs, servers or other end nodes, or to hubs or other switches, you can use straight-through cables.

If any of these ports are given a fixed configuration, for example 100 Mbps/

Full Duplex, the ports operate as MDI-X ports, and straight-through cables must be then used for connections to PC NICs and other MDI ports.
