Can Not Change IP Address of Pro Curve 2900-48G Inconsistent Value

I recently picked up a Pro Curve 2900-48G for my home lab to integrate Infiniband into my network. Everything is working well except for the fact that for some reason I can't change the switch from DHCP to Manual to configure it's IP address. When I try to do this I get the error Inconsistent Value no matter what IP I try to use. Any idea why or how to get around this? All other config is working fine.

I would like the witch to be 192.168.0.3ProCurve2900-48G.jpg

Does the switch have any other IP addresses configured? Can you attach the output of 'show run'?

Lindsay,

Thanks for the reply. Yes, it does have an IP address assigned by DHCP. I am trying to change it to manual when encountering this error. Please find the info requested below.

I might try something like removing the DHCP configuration first, with something like "vlan 1; no ip address dhcp", and then configure the new IP address.

I assume that will require having a cable to directly connect to the switch via the management port since I won't be able to connect via IP address. I'll take a look at the office tomorrow and see if there is one I can use. If not, I'll order one.

Or create a new VLAN, eg,

VLAN 10
VLAN 10 IP address 10.1.10.1/24
Pick an unused port and add VLAN10 as untagged to that port.

Now give your laptop any other address in the 10.1.10.0/24 range and patch it to that port and manage the switch from there.\

***edit: I'm not sure with that switch, but you might need to issue some sort of "management vlan 10" type command.

Ok, sorry for the delay.

Vince, took your advice and created VLAN10 for port 44 and assigned IP address 10.0.0.1 and gave one of my PC's 10.0.0.2. With this config I am able to telnet into the switch with 10.0.0.1.

Lindsay, I think something might be missing from the command you posted. I tried it several different ways with no success. Please see below. Any further suggestions or changes?

Pro Curve 2900-48G# vlan 1; no ip address dhcp
Invalid input: vlan
Pro Curve 2900-48G# DEFAULT_VLAN; no ip address dhcp
Invalid input: DEFAULT_VLAN;
Pro Curve 2900-48G# vlan1; no ip address dhcp
Invalid input: vlan1;
Pro Curve 2900-48G# vlan1; no ip address dhcp
Invalid input: vlan1;

Those were configuration level commands I gave you. You need to go into
config mode first

Ok, Issue resolved. Vince & Lindsay thank you guys so much. I'm a desktop guy and I don't get to mess with the network gear much so I'm learning.

So here is what worked.

#config

#vlan 1

#no ip address

(it errored when using dhcp at the end)

then trouble started. For some reason my connection to 10.0.0.1 got super flakey and I go an error that my config was open in another session.

So, try 100x to connect and finally get connected.

#kill

Then use the GUI via Fire Fox extended release 10.0.0.1 which worked to set "manual" and "192.168.0.3".

That was a giant PITA, but it's done and working like a charm now.

Thank you both!
