Description The HP ProCurve Switch 2424M Gigabit Stacking Module is a component that you can add to an HP ProCurve Switch 2424M to provide stacking between Switch 2424Ms and a variety of other network connectivity options. handle to assist module...
OS version C.06.06 or later to support the Gigabit Stacking Module (see page 3). Install new software, if needed. The new software is found on the floppy disk included with the module. You can also copy the OS file from the HP networking products world wide web site: http://www.hp.com/go/procurve The software files to download are located under the [Support] button on that web page.
1. Download Switch Software Verify Current Switch Software Your HP ProCurve Switch 2424M must be running OS version C.06.06 or later to support the Gigabit Stacking Module. To determine which OS version is running in the switch, connect a console to the switch and perform the...
PC directory you will use for downloading to the switch, or you can download it directly from the floppy disk. Go on to step 2. • If the source of your software file is the self-extracting file from the HP ProCurve web page (http://www.hp.com/go/procurve), do the following: a.
Installing the Module 2. Install Transceivers Into the Module Any of the HP Gigabit Transceivers (Gigabit-SX, Gigabit-LX, or Gigabit Stacking) can be installed in either of the transceiver slots in the Gigabit Stacking Module. The order or location does not matter.
Installing the Module 3. Install the Module 1. Use a Torx T-10 or flat-bladed screwdriver to unscrew the screws in the module slot cover plate in the back of the Switch 2424M. Then remove the cover plate and store it for possible future use. 2.
Installing the Module 5. Tighten the two retaining screws to hold the module in place. The retaining screws should be secure but be careful to not overtighten them. tighten the two retaining screws 4. Verify the Module is Installed Correctly Observe the Module Status, Self Test, and Fault LEDs on the front of the switch to verify that the module is installed properly.
Gigabit Shielded twisted-pair cable supplied A 1/2-meter cable is included in the Stacking with the Gigabit Stacking Kit (HP J4116A) Gigabit Stacking Kit. A 10-meter cable has also been tested and verified. The cable is AMP part number 627124-1.
Installing the Module 2. Check the port LEDs for the newly-installed module to ensure that the port(s) connected in the preceding step are operating correctly. For each of the two transceiver ports on the switch module there are Link and Mode LEDs as shown in the next illustration.
You can reset the switch by any of these methods: pressing the Reset button on the front of the switch power cycling the switch selecting the Reset or Reboot option from the switch console, web browser interface, or HP TopTools for Hubs & Switches...
Installing the Module 7. Customize the Port Configuration (Optional) If the module slot in the Switch 2424M 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.
Sample Connections Sample Connections The HP Gigabit Stacking Module allows you to easily stack multiple Switch 2424Ms with gigabit speed while at the same time connecting the stack to network backbones, servers and other network devices with gigabit fiber- optic connections. The following illustration shows an example of these connections.
Troubleshooting Troubleshooting The primary tools for troubleshooting the switch modules are the LEDs on the front of the switch and on the module. Refer to “LED Behavior” on page 7. Also, refer to the Installation Guide and the Management and Configuration Guide shipped with the switch, for more detailed troubleshooting informa- tion.
Troubleshooting Number Problem Solution The module was When you “hot swap” modules in the switch slot, if you install a different module type installed in the than the one that was previously installed in the slot, you must reset the switch so the slot after a switch processor can properly initialize and configure the new module type.
You can use the console interface to determine the state of the port and re-enable the port if necessary. If you have configured an IP address on the switch, you can use Telnet to access the console, or use the web browser interface, or HP TopTools for Hubs & Switches network management software.
Replacing or Removing the Module Replacing or Removing the Module Follow these procedures to replace the Gigabit Stacking Module with another, or to remove the module without replacing it: 1. Remove any network cables from the ports on the module. 2.
Mode Conditioning Patch Cord for Gigabit-LX Mode Conditioning Patch Cord for Gigabit-LX The following information applies to installations in which multimode fiber-optic cables are connected to a Gigabit LX Transceiver installed in the Gigabit Stacking Module. Unlike Gigabit SX, which connects to only multimode fiber-optic cabling, Gigabit LX can use either single-mode or multimode cable.
Gigabit LX Transceiver and has multimode fibers that match the characteristics of the multimode fiber in your network. Recommended Patch Cords The following Mode Conditioning Patch Cords have been tested and verified to operate correctly with the HP Gigabit LX Transceiver: Part Number Connectors Multimode Section Fiber Type 62.5/125 µm...
Gigabit-LX described on page 8. The Gigabit Stacking Transceiver has a proprietary connector. It accepts the 1/2-meter shielded twisted-pair cable that is shipped in the HP Gigabit Stacking Kit (HP J4116A), as described on page 8.
