2015 upgrade of the Forum server room edge switches

General setup plan

2920 switches

For each switch:

  • Pick a new switch from the pile.
  • Unbox and check over.
  • Enter the serial number and MAC address in the table below.
  • rfe lcfg/FSinstall2920, and set the MAC address.
  • Install the mounting lugs.
  • Install one 10GbaseT module in slot A (left) at the back of the switch.
  • Label the switch.
  • Rack up, and patch in port 48 to a suitable 'install' uplink.
  • Plug in, turn on, and watch while the self-test goes through.
  • Set up, as per the Setting up a ProCurve 2920 switch instructions. Note that there is a firmware upgrade required.
  • To download the active configuration to the switch, rfe core/install2920.pc and change the name of the portfile to that of the switch you are installing. Then ssh to abbado, and run make install2920.ets in /disk/home/abbado/Forum/core as root. Fix and repeat as necessary until this goes through cleanly.
  • Unrack, and place the switch on the Dexion racking, ready for installation.
