POE PSE State is off on A5120-EI POE Switch

I have a A5120-EI POE Switch with 4 in a stack.  2 of 4 switches are delivering power
to VoIP phones however 2 are not.

How do I change the PSE State to on?

[Switch] interface x/x/x

[Switch-GigabitEthernetx/x/x] poe enable

PoE on Comware is disabled by default, and must enabled per port.


Another good source of info, the HP Networking and Cisco CLI Reference Guide. A free CLI ref of ProVision, Comware5, and Cisco in side-by-side comparison. Not all inclusive, but alot of the "daily" config needs.  ....and it's free!

Also good if you have a single platform :-)
