Dear Colleagues,
I have HP Aruba2530 switch installed at state hospital.
The problem is that SSH and WEB access is not secured by any password, all the settings are default whatsoever.
Plz help me to add a password authorization to SSH and WEB interface.

You should use the provided, or a different, console cable to hook up the switch RJ45 Console port to your PC - you might need a seriel-to-usb adapter for that

Then you can access the terminal on the switch and configure IP address and passwords and management access

You start the setup process with the command
setup
after this, you should have everything set up to manage switch from network

There is no problem to connect to the terminal via tcp/ip by default, I don't know what commands in CLI should I perform : )
OK, I'll try the setup if it's the easiest way to set passwords
