Main Product Coverage
The main product documentation for your switch or routing switch includes:
Book 1: Installation and Getting Started Guide. Book 1 (this manual) contains the product Safety and EMC
Regulatory statements as well as installation, security, and basic configuration information. A printed copy of
this guide is included with your HP product. An electronic copy is also included as a PDF (Portable Document
Format) file on the CD shipped with your HP product.
Book 2: Advanced Configuration and Management Guide. Book 2 contains advanced configuration
information for routing protocols, Spanning Tree Protocol (STP), Quality of Service (QoS), and Virtual LANs
(VLANs). In addition, appendixes in this guide contain reference information for network monitoring, policies
and filters, and software and hardware specifications. This manual is included in a PDF (Portable Document
Format) file on the CD shipped with your HP product.
Book 3: Command Line Interface Reference. Book 3 provides a dictionary of CLI commands and syntax. An
electronic copy of this reference is included as a PDF (Portable Document Format) file on the CD shipped

NOTE: In Book 2, most of the chapters apply only to the HP 9304M, HP 9308M, and HP 6308M-SX routing
switches (and not the HP 6208M-SX switch). However, the QoS, ACL, STP, and VLAN chapters, and appendixes
A and B apply to the HP 6208M-SX switch as well as the routing switches.
