I am having a big issue with my hp 5304xl switch. I reset the switch and now when I run the setup command from the terminal and select the manual option to set the ip. It will not tab or move down where I can enter a ipaddress? it just skips that section and if I try to save it without a ip address when manual is selected it say inconsistnet value. I am not sure what to do

Perhaps something has not been entered OK, fx. confirmPassword not equal Password.

Do you have a CLI, when the switch is started, then perhaps you could try a:
SHOW RUN
to see if anything is already configured.

Example of entering a very basic setup at CLI:

config
ip default-gateway 192.168.1.1
vlan 1
IP address 192.168.1.2  255.255.255.0
exit
exit
write mem

Well, the setup area never let me enter in a ip address and the passwords were good. But the command vlan1 and then ip address 192.168.1.2 255.255.255.0 worked. It made every port to vlan1 and I was able to get at the web interface to config it.
