1 Preparing for installation The MSM775 zl Premium Controller is a Services zl Module-based WLAN controller that plugs into switches such as the 5406 zl and 8212 zl. New switches need to be prepared according to their documentation. NOTE: The MSM775 zl Controller requires software Version K.15.13 or later on the switch.
3. Module Status LEDs Serial number The serial number is required when contacting HP or a reseller for warranty assistance or for coverage under a service agreement. Record the serial and product number for future reference. See the warranty information for coverage details.
Figure 4 Locating the controller serial number 1. Controller serial number (SN: SGxxxxxxxx) Installation precautions Static electricity can severely damage the electronic components on the controller. When handling and installing the controller, follow these procedures to avoid damage from static electricity: Handle the controller by its bulkhead or edges and avoid touching the components and the circuitry on the board.
A module of a different type is any module other than the MSM775 zl Controller (J9840A), Advanced Services v2 zl Module with HDD (J9857A), or Advanced Services v2 zl Module with SSD (J9858A).
NOTE: At power-on and during module self-tests, all LEDs will turn on for at least 7 seconds and go through their range of colors. After the self-tests complete, all LEDs will return to behaving normally. Location of LED Display for a properly installed controller Test Switch Off.
3 Initially connecting and configuring This chapter describes how to connect to the switch, configure the switch for the controller, and then perform initial controller configuration. Finally, information on restarting and resetting the controller is provided. Connect to the switch Although full information on the switch command line interface (CLI) is provided in the switch documentation, the basic switch CLI commands needed to work with the controller are provided in this document.
Press any key to continue. The switch CLI prompt appears. It looks similar to: HP-5406zl# NOTE: If the switch menu appears instead, return to the top-level menu and select Command Line (CLI). The switch CLI prompt appears, similar to: HP-5406zl# Verify switch software version Before configuring the controller, verify that the switch software is Version K.15.13 or later.
This guide, and the MSM Controllers Configuration Guide, use the terms Internet port and LAN port to refer to the Ethernet interfaces on the controller, instead of the port names on the switch. NOTE: The “i” suffix on the ports indicates that it is an internal port. A third internal port (D3i in the example) is displayed, but is nonfunctional.
Select VLAN Names. Add two VLANs, one for the Internet port and another for the LAN port. For example, use VLAN ID 10 with name MSM775_Int for the Internet port and VLAN ID 15 with name MSM775_LAN for the LAN port. Select Back to return to the VLAN Menu.
Select VLAN Port Assignment. Select Edit, and then use the arrow keys to select the DEFAULT_VLAN column of port D1i. (Ports D1i and D2i respectively define the VLAN assignment for the controller Internet and LAN ports.) NOTE: In addition to DEFAULT_VLAN, columns are now present for the two VLAN names (MSM775_Int and MSM775_LAN) defined in the previous steps.
1 1. Use the arrow keys to select the DEFAULT_VLAN cell for port A1. 12. Assign MSM775_Int to port A1, and MSM775_LAN to port A2. Use the space bar to change values and the arrow keys to move between items. Moving from left to right, set port A1 to No, Untagged, No.
192.168.1.1/24 Press Ctrl+Z to return to the switch CLI. NOTE: For proper functioning of the MSM775 zl, the LAN port must not be left at its default address of 0.0.0.0. Perform initial controller configuration On your computer, disable the wireless port and configure the Ethernet port to use the static IP address 192.168.1.2.
On the Login page, enter admin for both Username and Password, and then select Login. A workflow to set initial controller settings starts automatically. After you accept the HP Licence, read the instructions and respond to the prompts on each page, and select Next to continue to the next workflow page.
(in less than four seconds) release the button. Resetting the controller to factory defaults HP recommends that you use the web interface to reset the controller to factory defaults as follows: Simplified UI Select Views > Software Settings > Backup & Restore > Restore.

B Replacing hardware components Replacing or removing a controller HP recommends that the controller be shut down before removing or replacing it. The preferred method of shutting down the controller is through the CLI: services <slot-id> shutdown Where <slot-id> identifies the switch slot containing the controller. A confirmation message appears.
