What can be done with IMC and SMB type switches?

I have some switches to setup:

7 x 2530's

55 x 1810G V2

 

What can be done with the 1810's & IMC? These are web managed only.

I am hoping to set the following (auto or lite touch)

 

system name, location
IP address
firmaware update
serup Time, NTP
credentials
auto-backups

Doesn't look like you can do much with them. The switches don't really support any sort of programmatic interface, which makes it tough.

 

In theory, you could write something to interact with the web interface, but I don't think the 1810 is set up at all for that.

 

There is some SNMP support on those switches, but it is all read-only (some bits were read-write, but that was a bug, and is now fixed)

 

That's the flip-side of the cheap 'smart-managed' switches I guess - they're not designed for centralised management.
