Introducing the Switch The HP 2530 Switch Series are multiport switches that can be used to build high-performance switched workgroup networks. These switches are store- and-forward devices that offer low latency for high-speed networking. Six of the switches also support the IEEE 802.3at standard for providing PoE+ power to connected devices.

Installing the Switch Installation Procedures Installation Procedures These steps summarize your switch installation. The rest of this chapter provides details on these steps. Prepare the installation site (page 2-6). Make sure the physical environment into which you will be installing the switch is properly prepared, including having the correct network cabling ready to connect to the switch and having an appropriate location for the switch.

Installation Procedures N o t e The HP 2530 24-port and 48-port do not have a power switch. They are powered on when the power cord is connected to the switch and to a power source. For safety, the power outlet should be located near the switch installation.
The switch is designed to be mounted in any EIA-standard 19-inch telco rack or communication equipment cabinet. The HP 2530 24-port and 48-port switches can also be mounted in 4-post racks and cabinets by using the HP X410 Switch Rail Kit (J9583A). For instructions on using the kit, see the documentation that is included with the kit.
Installing the Switch Installation Procedures E q u i p m e n t The 12-24 screws supplied with the switch are the correct threading for C a b i n e t standard EIA/TIA open 19-inch racks. If installing the switch in an equipment cabinet such as a server cabinet, use the clips and screws that came with the N o t e cabinet in place of the 12-24 screws that are supplied with the switch.
Installing the Switch Installation Procedures Hold the switch with attached brackets up to the rack and move it vertically until rack holes line up with the bracket holes, then insert and tighten the four number 12-24 screws holding the brackets to the rack. Install 12-24 screws Figure 2-4.
Installation Procedures Wall or Under-Table Mounting You can mount the HP 2530 24-port and 48-port switches on a wall with either the front or rear panel facing up. The HP 2530 8-port switches must be mounted on a wall with the network ports facing up.
Installing the Switch Installation Procedures To mount the HP 2530 8-port switches, follow these steps: In the required location, mark the position for the mounting screws. The hole-to-hole distance is 3.54 inch (90 mm). Use a #1 Phillips (cross-head) screwdriver and two of the included 20-mm M4 tap screws.

Figure 2-8. Using the cable tie on the HP 2530 8-port switches N o t e The HP 2530 8-port switches include an optional power shelf (HP P/N J9820A) to hold the AC/DC power adapter. For instructions on how to install this accessory, see the included documentation.
Figure 2-9. Connecting network cables N o t e The HP 2530 8-port switches include an optional cable guard (HP P/N J9700A) to provide security for the attached network cables. For instructions on how to install this accessory, see the included documentation.
SFP. C a u t i o n Use only supported genuine HP SFPs with your switch. Non-HP SFPs are not supported, and their use may result in product malfunction. Should you require additional HP SFPs, contact your HP Networking Sales and Service Office or authorized dealer.
You should disconnect the network cable from the SFP before removing it from the switch. Depending on when you purchased your HP SFP, it may have either of three different release mechanisms: a plastic tab on the bottom of the SFP, a plastic collar around the SFP, or a wire bail.
IP addressing and on starting a Telnet session, see chapter 3, “Configuring the Switch”, in the Management and Configuration Guide, which is on the HP Web site at www.hp.com/networking/support. The switches can simultaneously support one out-of-band console session through a Console Port and in-band Telnet console sessions.
USB drivers are available for Windows XP, Windows Vista, and Windows 7. USB console drivers are available at www.hp.com/networking/support. Type a product name (e.g. 2530) or product number in the Auto Search textbox. Select one of the switches from the drop-down list. Click the Display selected button.
If you want to continue with console management of the switch at this time, see chapter 3, “Getting Started With Switch Configuration” for some basic configuration steps. For more detailed information, refer to the Management and Configuration Guide, which is on the HP Web site at www.hp.com/networking/support. 2-21...
Figure 2-12. Basic desktop configuration The HP 2530 PoE+ switches are designed to be used as desktop switches to which end nodes, printers and other peripherals, and servers are directly connected, as shown in the above illustration. The switches can also supply PoE+ power to end devices such as IP telephones.
Figure 2-13. Segment network configuration with PoE switches The HP 2530 Switches also work well as segment switches. That is, with their high performance, they can be used for interconnecting network segments— simply connect the network devices that form those segments to the HP 2530 Switches.
Only devices directly connected to PoE switches can receive PoE power. Devices connected to the non-PoE switch cannot receive PoE power. Because the HP 2530 Switches have the Auto-MDIX feature, the connections between the switches and end nodes or servers can be through category 5 straight-through or crossover twisted-pair cable.
IP address. Up to 16 switches can be connected together in such a “virtual stack”. You identify an HP 2530 Switch as the “Commander” and give that switch an IP address. Up to 15 other switches in the network can then easily be configured as Members of the stack and managed through the Commander’s...

Troubleshooting This chapter describes how to troubleshoot your HP 2530 Switches. This document describes troubleshooting mostly from a hardware perspective. You can perform more in-depth troubleshooting on these devices using the software tools available with the switches, including the full-featured console interface, the built-in Web browser interface, and HP PCM, the SNMP-based HP network management tool.
Basic Troubleshooting Tips C a u t i o n Because the HP 2530 Switches behave in this way (in compliance with the IEEE 802.3 standard), if a device connected to the switch has a fixed configuration at full duplex, the device will not connect correctly to the switch.
Troubleshooting Basic Troubleshooting Tips Check the port configuration. A port on your switch may not be ■ operating as you expect because it has been put into a “blocking” state by Spanning Tree, GVRP (automatic VLANs), or LACP (automatic trunking). (Note that the normal operation of the Spanning Tree, GVRP, and LACP features may put the port in a blocking state.) Or, the port just may have been configured as disabled through software.
Troubleshooting Diagnosing with the LEDs Diagnosing with the LEDs Table 4-1 shows LED patterns on the switch that indicate problem conditions for general switch operation troubleshooting. Table 4-2 shows LED patterns that indicate problem conditions for PoE troubleshooting. LED patterns for General Switch Troubleshooting Check in the table for the LED pattern you see on your switch.

(The 10/100/1000-T ports support the IEEE 802.3ab standard, which includes the “Auto-MDIX” feature.) If you connect an HP 2530 Switch twisted-pair port to another switch or hub, which typically have MDI-X ports, the HP 2530 Switch port automatically operates as an MDI port. If you connect it to an end node, such as a server or PC, which typically have MDI ports, the HP 2530 Switch port operates as an MDI-X port.
