Hp Procurve Switch problem
Posted on 2004-11-17
I have 2 Hp Procurve 2500 series switches.
They are joined by a single cat5 cable from one port on one, to a port on the other, daisychained! this i know isnt good.
However i have bought 2 transceivers j4834a, so that i can connect the two and hopefully eliviate a bottleneck.
When i installed the two transceivers i follwed the instructios that cam with them, installed each one then connected the cable, I used a CAT6 cable .
When i reset each switch the self test performed and all lights flashed for a few seconds. After that all lights on each switch are permanantly on and i have no network connectivity.
What am I doig wrong?
Ive had to revert back to the cat5 cable scenario for now.
