Add HP2530 (J9772A) to existing Network

Hi - I am going to be adding an additional 2530 48-Port POE switch to my network that already has a 2530 24-Port POE switch.  It is a pretty small network, devices get DHCP from an Untangle gateway.  What is the best way to connect the new switch to the network?  Once it is connected, how do I configure it if I do not have a computer with a DB9 port?  This is a production environment so I would like to avoid a lot of downtime if possible.  Thank you in advance for your help.

Just a couple of clarifying comments...there is no vlanning configured on the network and the 24-Port switch is an Aruba J9773A 2530 24_port PoE switch.  The new switch is an HP J9772A 48-Port PoE switch..

If you don't want to manage your switches, you should save money and just buy unmanaged switches.

The 2530 will pickup a DHCP address. web-browse to that IP address and you can easily configure it without needing a console.

Thank you.  At some point, we will manage the switches, just not right now.
