WARNING: Use this step only for new systems. If you enter this command on a system you have already
configured, the command erases the configuration. If you accidentally do erase the configuration on a configured
system, enter the write memory command to save the running configuration to the startup-config file.
Access the configuration level of the CLI by entering the following command:
HP6208# configure terminal
Set the IP and mask addresses for the switch.
