Provisionning Procurve HP 54xx ZL

Hello,

I have a spare switch for quickly replace one of my 5 procurve switch. How can I provisionning switch configuration if module not present ?

Exemple I use multiple VLAN, I need untagg/tag port on module B, C, D for multiple VLAN.
If I use command : untagged b1
Module not present for port or invalid port: b1

Is it possible to disable port exist checking ?

Thanks

a copy tftp -> startupconfig might get the wanted setup stored.
However, any "write mem" afterwards will remove config lines belonging to non-prresent modules

Or put the modules in, configure the ports, then remove the modules.

Having a spare switch is not anywhere near as useful as having spare modules and power supplies, because those are what is likely to fail.

You can use the "module" command to pre-provision the empty slot that you want to configure.

5412(config)# vlan 10 untagged e1
Module not present for port or invalid port: e1
5412(config)# module 5 ?
type The module type.
<cr>
5412(config)# module 5 type J9550A
5412(config)# vlan 10 untagged e1
5412(config)#
