Assign IP addresses to 1920G switch via DHCP

Assign IP addresses to 1920G switch via DHCP

I have a number of HP 1920G PoE switches and I would like to assign IP addresses to these switches via DHCP by a reservation. The MAC address on the back of the device is not the MAC address that is being used to request the IP address from DHCP (or so it would seem), because if I use that address to setup the reservation, the IP is still assigned in the normal DHCP scope.

Does anyone know where I can get the MAC address for these devices?

Re: Assign IP addresses to 1920G switch via DHCP

Each interface has a unique MAC address so you need to reserve your IP address against the interface that is issuing the DHCP request that you want answered with a particular IP address.

In the Network section, there is a MAC tab. I guess this is where the MACs are displayed.

On the command line, "display interface vlan" would show you the address for the VLAN interface you are looking for..
