Single source address for all Telnet packets – "Configuring an Interface as the Source for All Telnet Packets"
on page 9-9

Syslog server and local syslog buffer parameters – see "Configuring the Syslog Service" on page 9-14
Default Gigabit negotiation mode (for Chassis devices) – see "Changing the Default Gigabit Negotiation

Entering System Administration Information

You can configure a system name, contact, and location for an HP switch or routing switch and save the
information locally in the configuration file for future reference. This information is not required for system
operation but is suggested. When you configure a system name, the name replaces the default system name in
the CLI command prompt. For example, if the system is an HP 9304M or HP 9308M, the system name you
configure replaces "HP 9304M or HP 9308M" in the command prompt.
The name, contact, and location each can be up to 32 alphanumeric characters.
