Question about HP ProCurve 2626 (J4900B) 24x10/100 Mbps Networking Switch

1 Answer

Procurve 2626 installation

I am attempting to set up a network: Windows Server 2003 (Dell PowerEdge sc1425) and 40 pc's all connected via 3 ProCurve 2626 Switches, however they are all second hand and have NO manuals or instructions or cables, how do I configure the Switches? the Server is up and running, the PC's are ok, how do I get them to communicate. I have downloaded the PCM software but it is asking for the ip address of the switch, which I do not know (how do I find it?).

Thanks for the help :)

You'll need to obtain a comms lead - connects into the console port of the switch then into an RS232 port on your laptop. Then, you will be able to connect using hyper terminal and you can give the switch an IP address, username, etc. Even a hard-reset won't allow you to configure an IP address as by default it needs to be configured through the lead. Will they not talk without being configured? If you just hard reset them, they should just behave as unmanaged switches.

Need to reset the password on a Poweredge 4400 server.


You would need to use an admin account, local or network. I can be done via Active Directory or by anybody else that can Manage it via network.

The other option is to use a third party util like Hiren's Boot CD. Lastly is to format. gl

Hi,this is pavan i want to b configure the HP procurve 2626 J4900B managed switch pls help me through anybody by giving the programme to configure it


What do you need it configured to support? Multiple subnets? VoIP support?
Here's an example to support 2 subnets, VLAN 1 Data and VLAN 2 Voice. This switch is the VLAN router for the site and it is also the default gateway for all the devices on the network.

I need the default password for ProCurve J4900B


There isn't one. If someone has added a password to the switch you can connect to it and at the prompt to enter the password, press the Clear button.

Can see switches but not the personal computers


The only thing you can see is the arp table in the switch. That will give you the computers Mac-Address.

The purpose of hp procure switch 2626


There is nothing special about these switches other than that they are managed. Managed means they have some means of connecting to them and "managing" them like you do when you configure a wireless router by going to some ip address in your browser to access the configuration. They usually are able to communicate statistics, set up virtual subnetworks, monitor ports, mirror ports, control which ports can access which others, set speed limits on ports, etc... A normal switch is "dumb", there is nothing to configure and it just does it's thing, connecting anybody and everybody that are connected to any of it's ports. Procurve switches are popular because they are great switches, there are other managed ones that can be had for much less, I use 48 port managed Linksys that have/exceed these capabilities for way cheaper... examples
