I have limited networking experience but want to begin to learn some switch install and config.  We have an HPE OfficeConnect 1920 Series (JG928A) switch that is installed and up and running.  I have purchased a HPE OfficeConnect 1920S Series switch (JL380A) to try to install and config to learn some basic networking skills.  My first question is this:  Initially, can I just plug the switch if purchased into an available port on the existing switch to do the install and config?  2nd question:  Can I somehow copy and paste the switch info from the installed HPE switch to the new one?  I know you will probably need more info but I need to start somewhere.
