H.P PROCURVE1800 Switch

Hey guy`s

I have these 5 switches (Dumb switches )hpprocurve1800 uplink to my 3rd layer H.P switches-HP 5406ZL.

Though these are dumb switches then also i am wondering that why these are being configured with the ip address and gateway. Please see the attach picture.

Thanks

It looks like they are not quite dumb switches, as they can be configured with their own IP and Gateway.  See Link here:  HP ProCurve 1800 Series

A dumb switch would not have this capability.  

Also quoting this page:  HP ProCurve Switch 1800 Series - FAQs

The 1800 Series Switches are Web Managed switches..

Thanks RaithZ

I am trying to understand better about the way my network is setup . This config was set by the previous employee..
So i am wondering  that it will not effect my network if i remove the config(Just for test purpose) . These 5 switches are uplink to 1,2,3,4,5 port number on 5406zl and these ports are all defined in one vlan ON 5406ZL.

One thing for sure that will not be able to ping the ip address and will loose the gui console to it .
Otherwise this ip config is of no use in my present network setup.....

thanks

You may be able to remove the IP, but Since the switch is still expected to be managed and the ports still require configuration I don't think you would accomplish what you are wanting to do (use the 1800 as an unmanaged switch).  Is there a particular reason you want to remove the IP configuration from these?

If it allows you to remove the IP/gateway configuration  I believe the already configured ports would continue to function with their existing configuration but you have not gained anything by doing this.  If something changes, such as the IP or VLAN you want to use you would have to reset the switch to factory settings (to get back into the management interface) and then configure the ports for the new VLAN/IP Range.
