    Resetting the Switch Reasons for Resetting the Switch Generally, you only need to reset the switch when it needs to recognize a change in its hardware or software (console) configuration. Some circumstances in which you will need to reset the switch are: Installing a module in a slot that was previously occupied by a different type of module—for example, installing a 100/1000Base-T Module in a slot...

  • Page 24: Troubleshooting

    If the fault indication reoccurs, the module may have failed. Remove the module from the switch and replace it with another module, or recover the slot with the cover plate. Call your HP-authorized LAN dealer, or use the electronic support services from HP to get assistance. See the Customer Support/Warranty booklet for more information.
