Example: The HP Procurve 24-Port 10/100-TX GL Module Features: The HP Procurve Switch GL Modules have the following features: auto-enabled ports—the ports are all configured to be ready for network operation as soon as a viable network cable is connected auto-configuration—a default configuration is applied to the module...
Installing the Module Overview You can install any of the modules into any of the HP Procurve switches that have a compatible module slot. As of this printing, those are the HP Procurve Switch 4108GL (J4865A) and the HP Procurve Switch 4108GL Bundle (J4861A).
The HP Procurve Switch GL Modules have “low-force”, high-performance connectors. High insertion forces are not necessary to install the modules, and should not be used.
Installing the Module Insert module into the guides and slide it in until it is fully inserted. “Low-force” connector. High insertion force is not needed and should not be used. For best results, push simultaneously near both screws. The module is fully inserted when the module bulkhead is contacting, or very close to contacting the face of the switch.
Installing the Module Reset the switch only if you have installed a module in place of a different type of module. (See “Resetting the Switch” on page 12 for more informa- tion about when the switch must be reset.) Verify the module is installed correctly. Observe the Module Status LED for the slot in which the module is being installed, and the Self Test and Fault LEDs on the switch to verify that the module is installed properly.
“crossover” twisted-pair cable for all network connections to these modules. On the 10/100-TX GL Module, this feature is identified as HP Auto-MDIX; on the 100/1000-T GL Module, it comes with compliance with the IEEE 802.3ab standard, and is identified as Auto MDI/MDI-X. Both features operate the same.
RJ-45 connector Notes: • The RJ-45 ports on this module have the HP Auto-MDIX feature. In the module’s default configuration, Auto, either a straight-through or crossover cable can be used to connect the module to any other 100Base-TX or 10Base-T device.
Installing the Module Check the port LEDs for the newly-installed module to ensure that the port(s) connected in the preceding step are operating correctly. Each port on the switch modules has Link and Mode LEDs near it as shown in the next illustration.
Customizing the Port Configuration Customizing the Port Configuration If the slot in which you installed the module was empty the last time the switch was either rebooted or reset (or the power to the switch was cycled), then the module will use preconfigured default parameter values that will work for most networks.
Replacing or Removing a Module Replacing or Removing a Module Follow these procedures to replace one module with another, or to remove a module without replacing it: Remove any network cables from the ports on the module. On the module you want to remove from the switch, unscrew the retaining screws enough to disconnect them from the threaded holes in the switch.
Reset button on the front of the switch power cycling the switch issuing the reboot system command from the switch console CLI, or selecting the Reset or Reboot option from the switch console menu, web browser interface, or HP TopTools for Hubs & Switches...
Troubleshooting Troubleshooting The primary tools for troubleshooting the switch modules are the LEDs on the front of the switch and on the modules. Refer to “LED Behavior” on page 6. Also, refer to the Installation and Getting Started Guide for more detailed troubleshooting information.
If the fault indication reoccurs, the module may have failed. Remove the module from the switch and replace it with another module, or recover the slot with the cover plate. Call your HP-authorized LAN dealer, or use the electronic support services from HP to get assistance. See the Customer Support/Warranty booklet for more information.
You can use the console interface, or, if you have configured an IP address on the switch, use the web browser interface, or HP TopTools for Hubs & Switches network management software to determine the state of the port and re-enable the port if necessary.
See the Customer Support/Warranty booklet that came with your switch for information on how to use these services to get technical support. The HP networking products World Wide Web site, http://www.hp.com/go/procurve also provides up-to-date support informa- tion.
Specifications Connectors The ports on the 10/100-TX GL Module are compatible with the IEEE 802.3 10Base-T and 802.3u 100Base-TX standards and accept the 10 Mbps or 100 Mbps cables listed below. The ports on the 100/1000-T GL Module and the 100/1000-T Trans- ceiver, which can be installed in the Gigabit Transceiver GL Module, are compatible with the IEEE 802.3u 100Base-TX and IEEE 802.3ab 1000Base-T standards, and accept the 100 Mbps or 1000 Mbps cables listed...
Specifications Note on 1000Base-T Cable Requirements. The Category 5 networking cables that work for 100Base-TX connections should also work for 1000Base-T, but for the most robust connections you should use cabling that complies with the Category 5E specifications, as described in Addendum 5 to the TIA-568-A standard (ANSI/TIA/EIA-568-A-5).
