    • When installing the module, equalize any static charge difference between your body and the switch by wearing a grounding wrist strap and attaching it to the switch’s metal body, or by frequently touching the switch’s metal body. The HP Procurve Switch GL Modules have “low-force”, high-performance connectors.

    The module is fully inserted when the module bulkhead is contacting, or very close to contacting the face of the switch. “Low-force” connector. High insertion force is not needed and should not be used.

  • Page 13: Installing Or Removing The Mini-gbics

    Installing or Removing the mini-GBICs You can install or remove the mini-GBIC from the mini-GBIC GL Module without having to power off the switch. Use only HP Procurve mini-GBICs. C a u t i o n The HP Procurve mini-GBICs are Class 1 laser devices. Avoid direct eye exposure to the beam coming from the transmit port.

    “crossover” twisted-pair cable for all network connections to these modules. On the 10/100-TX GL Module, this feature is identified as HP Auto-MDIX; on the 100/1000-T GL Module, it is identified as Auto MDI/MDI-X and it is part of the IEEE 802.3ab standard. Both features operate the same.

  • Page 18: Verifying The Network Connections Are Working

    Check the port LEDs for the newly-installed module to ensure that the port(s) connected in the preceding step are operating correctly. Each port on the switch modules has Link and Mode LEDs near it as shown in the next illustration.

  • Page 19: Customizing The Port Configuration

    Customizing the Port Configuration If the slot in which you installed the module was empty the last time the switch was either rebooted or reset (or the power to the switch was cycled), then the module will use preconfigured default parameter values that will work for most networks.
