Managing switch set up... 1st time
Posted on 2004-08-10
This is for a newby to router & switch set ups.
This will be the first time I set up a Switch.
Actually there are 3 switches total that the company has.
There are 2 Dell 3348 switches (stacked) that have had 1 IP assigned to it, and it is assigned vlan1.
This was done before I came on board.
The password was lost and the manual says that it can be reset by connecting a terminal to it.
The thidr switch is a Gigabit switch.
It is currently just switching with no IP assigned to it.
Correct me if I am wrong, but in order to console into these and reset the password, and set up a new IP for the GB switch, I will have to take a PC inthe server room and use the 9 pin null cable between the PC and the switch involved, then run a hypet-terminal session to talk to the switches?
Is that how it is done?
Thanks in advance... Michael
