  • Page 9: Introducing The Switch

    Introducing the Switch 408 The ProCurve Switch 408 is a multiport switch that can be used to build high-performance switched workgroup networks. This switch is a store-and-forward device that offers low latency for high-speed networking. ProCurve Switch 408 (J4097C) Throughout this manual, the name of this switch will be abbreviated as the Switch 408.

    Installing the Switch 408 Installation Procedures ■ If you rack mount the Switch 408 (using the mounting kit, 5183-7210), the rack or cabinet should be adequately secured to prevent it from becoming unstable and/or falling over. Devices installed in a rack or cabinet should be mounted as low as possible, with the heaviest device at the bottom and progressively lighter devices installed above.

    1. Prepare the Installation Site Cabling Infrastructure - Make sure the cabling infrastructure ■ meets the necessary network specifications. Because of the HP Auto-MDIX feature, for connections to end nodes (computers, servers, printers and other peripherals), or connections to hubs or other switches, you can use straight-through cables.

    Installing the Switch 408 Sample Network Topologies Sample Network Topologies This section shows you two sample network topologies in which the Switch 408 is implemented. Note Make sure the network into which you are installing the Switch 408 has a valid topology: there should be no loops in the data paths connected to the switch, and all twisted- pair connections should be no more than 100 meters.

    Troubleshooting Basic Troubleshooting Tips Because the Switch 408 behaves in this way (in compliance with the IEEE 802.3u standard), if a device connected to the switch has a fixed configuration at full duplex, the device will not connect correctly to the Switch 408. The result will be high error rates and high collision rates, and very inefficient communica- tions between the switch and the device.

    Troubleshooting Diagnosing With the LEDs In addition, you should make sure that your network topology contains no data path loops. Between any two end nodes, there should be only one active cabling path at any time. Data path loops will cause broadcast storms that will severely impact your network performance.

    Troubleshooting ProCurve Customer Support Services Testing End-to-End Network Communications Both the switch and the cabling can be tested by running an end-to- end communications test -- a test that sends known data from one network device to another through the switch. For example, if you have two PCs on the network, both connected to the switch, you can use a link-level packet test (link test) or Ping test to verify that the entire communication path between the two PCs is functioning...
