Installation and Getting Started Guide
NOTE: The following protocols require a system reset before the protocol will be active on the system: PIM,
DVMRP, RIP, SRP, and IPX. To reset a system, select the Reload link (Web) or enter the reload command at the
privileged level of the CLI.
USING THE CLI
To enable a protocol on an HP routing switch, enter router at the global CONFIG level, followed by the protocol to
be enabled. The following example shows how to enable OSPF:
HP9300(config)# router ospf
HP9300# write memory
Syntax: router appletalk | bgp | dvmrp | ipx | ospf | pim | rip | srp | vrrp | vrrpe
USING THE WEB MANAGEMENT INTERFACE
To enable protocols on a routing switch:
Log on to the device using a valid user name and password for read-write access. The System configuration
panel is displayed.
Select the Enable option next to the protocol(s) to be enabled.
NOTE: If you are enabling BGP4, you must also specify the local AS number in the Local AS field.
NOTE: Do not enable both SRP and VRRP. Hewlett-Packard recommends that you use only one of these
router redundancy protocols on a routing switch.
Click Apply to save the changes to the device's running-config file.
Select the Save link at the bottom of the dialog. Select Yes when prompted to save the configuration change
to the startup-config file on the device's flash memory.
NOTE: You also can access the dialog for saving configuration changes by clicking on Command in the tree
view, then clicking on Save to Flash.
If you enable PIM, DVMRP, RIP, SRP, or IPX, you must reload the software to place the change into effect.
Click on the plus sign next to Command in the tree view to list the command options.
Select the Reload link and select Yes when the Web management interface asks you whether you really want
to reload the software.
