Configuration changes can be made easily by through the switch’s console interface. At this point, the switch is fully installed. See the rest of this chapter if you need more detailed information on any of these installation steps.
In the front of the switch, allow at least 7.6 cm (3 inches) of space for the twisted-pair and fiber-optic cabling. In the back of the switch, allow at least 3.8 cm (1 1/2 inches) of space for the power cord.
Torx T-10 screwdriver. Retain the slot cover for future use. N o t e s Any of the supported switch modules can be installed in any of the slots. The modules can be “hot swapped”, installed when the switch is powered on, and normally will be immediately operational.
3. (Optional) Install Second Power Supply A second, load-sharing redundant power supply (HP ProCurve Switch 4000M/ 8000M Power Supply, HP J4119A) can be installed in the back of the switch. To provide true redundancy, this second power supply should be connected to a different AC power source from the other supply.
Insert the power supply into the opening, lower it until it rests on the bottom of the switch chassis, then slide it all the way in until it connects to the switch. The power supply face plate will be flush with the back of the switch.
The Switch 4000M and 8000M do not have a power switch. They are powered on when the power cord is connected to the switch and to a power source. If your installation requires a different power cord than the one supplied with the switch, be sure to use a power cord displaying the mark of the safety agency that defines the regulations for power cords in your country.
