hi guys,

I've got a Cisco SG500x-24 that has been sitting there in a box. I'm about to put it into production, so I'm trying to configure it. I've upgraded the firmware to 1.3.7.18.

I'm connecting using the putty application and I merely want to give this thing an IP address and configure VLAN's.
First of all, I can't enter the 'enable' mode as i get 'unrecognised command'. So instead I go in and type 'conf t'. That goes through and then when I add the VLAN1 with an IP address and then type 'copy running-configuration startup-configuration' again I get 'unrecognised command'. I'm confused as to what is causing this? Is the firmware not new enough?

Thanks for helping out
Yashy

SG500s don't run the same IOS you see on Catalyst switches.
Check out this guide:

type 'copy running-configuration startup-configuration' again I get 'unrecognised command'.
