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 100/1000-T GL Module in a slot
that was previously used for a 10/100-TX GL Module—the switch must be
reset after the new module is installed so the switch processor can
properly initialize and configure the new module type.
When a module is exchanged for a different type, until the switch is reset
the module will not operate, the Module Status LED for the slot will
continue to flash, and all the LEDs on the module will stay on continu­
ously.
Changing certain switch configuration parameters through the console
interface. (In this case, the console provides indications when the switch
must be reset for the configuration change to be activated.)
You do not need to reset the switch when:
Installing a module in a previously unused slot.
Replacing a module with the same type of module.
Methods of Resetting the Switch
You can reset the switch by any of these methods:
pressing the Reset button on the front of the switch
power cycling the switch (if both power supplies are being used, you will
have to disconnect both power cords)
issuing the reboot system command from the switch console CLI, or
selecting the Reset or Reboot option from the switch console menu, web
browser interface, or HP TopTools for Hubs & Switches
