HP a5820x how to startup ?

Hello everybody,

 

I got this switch yesterday and I have minimal time to configure it.

 

I started by using console BUT it seems to be in somekind of ''RMON'' mode and I cant get it to load the familiar CLI mode!

 

 

Please help! Also - am trying to find a way to use management interface but I guess first it must load!

 

All I get is console with limited commands :(

 

%Apr 26 12:15:56:441 2000 HP SHELL/5/SHELL_LOGIN: Console logged in from aux0.
<HP>
<HP>

 

PLease advise !

 

Thanks

I managed to add IP on MGNT interface, add user, enable http and enter the GUI interface.

 

Guys, there is a serious lack of a basic startup manual on this.

 

Is there somewhere some guide that has the basic commands in order to start configuring the switch?

 

come on - it cant be so bad !!

Did you try typing sys   at the prompt?  It should change from <HP> to [HP].  In system mode you can configure whatever you need on the switch.

Also, are you aware that ?  will show you what token is expected next?  At the command prompt it will show you a list of commands in that mode.  In the middle of a command it will show you what is expected next.  Pressing the <TAB>  key will do command completion too.
