Console cable for hp switch

Console cable for hp switch DEFAULT

Before you begin:

You will need a Console cable and a serial adapter (most computers/laptops nowadays no longer come with a serial port)

Console Cable:

Serial to USB Adapter:

1. Connect the Console and Serial adapter together (Female end to the Serial Male end). Locate the Console port on your HP Procurve Switch and plug the console cable into the port, It’s usually located at the front of the device under the logo.

2: Connect the USB cable into your computer/laptop and launch “Device Manager” Verify which COM Port the cable has picked up and make a note of the port number. In this instance the Serial to USB has picked up COM3. (If you have purchased a new Serial to USB adapter you will need to install the drivers before you can see the device listed.

Launch Putty or any other terminal emulation software, Tick the “Serial” connection type and enter the COM number in the serial line field. Leave the default connection speed of “9600”. Click “Open”

Putty will display the connection status, Hit “Enter”

The Device information will be displayed such as the Switch Make and Model number. If the user has a warning banner setup it will also be presented.  Hit “Enter”

3: Enter the Device Username/Password

Once the user has authenticated with the device it will display the device hostname followed by “>” this indicates the device is in “User mode”. User mode is used to view limited information about the device, therefore you will not be able to make any configuration changes in this mode.

To gain further privileges and have the capacity to make configuration changes you must enter “Privileged mode”. Type “>Enable” at the prompt and type the “Enable Password” by default the password is blank.

You will notice the prompt will change from “>” to a “#” this indicates you are now in privileged mode.

You are now ready to start configuring your switch, you may issue a “Show Run” command at the prompt to display the running configuration of the device.

If you issue a “Show IP” command the device will display the management IP address which can be used to access the device remotely using the built in web interface or simply accessing the device using putty using SSH.

It's possible to turn the serial port off...have you tried factory defaulting the switch to make sure that's not the case?

Should there be any boot up information? Or just when it asks to login?

You should see all of the boot code

I haven't looked at this switch yet, but is it actual DB9 or USB? Should work with 9600 baud and all other Putty serial settings at their defaults.

Using Putty or other terminal program? You need to make sure you are also using the correct COM port number, it isn't always COM1

Baud 1200 to 115200

8,1,no parit, flow control xon/xoff

It's definitely COM1 and I have gone through all the same options.

What model is your computer? ProCurves don't like the onboard serial ports on Optiplex 9020s, so I'm sure there are other models out there that don't work either. You may need to use a USB to serial adapter. I've had great luck with my Keyspan USA-19H.

As far as settings, you would use these:

  • A baud rate from 1200 to 115200 (the switch senses the speed).
  • 8 data bits, 1 stop bit, no parity, and flow control set to Xon/Xoff.

If that is the case you probably have the wrong console cable. Console cable pinout

If you do a factory reset, you should be able to telnet into the switch if it is connected to something that will hand out an IP address.

Cisco Console Cable and HP ProCurve Switches

To me, this cable might be a passive USB-to-8P8C adaptor cable. This means that the console port needs to talk USB and the cable is just an electrical adapter. The lengthy USB plug could mean it's active but I wouldn't be sure.

The HP 2510 doesn't support USB on its console port - it might well destroy USB devices connected to it with a passive adapter. (Serial ports use +12V/-12V signaling while USB uses levels of up to 5V.)

You'll need an active USB-to-serial converter and an appropriate serial 8P8C-to-DE9 cable console cable compatible with Procurve switches.

The Procurve and Cisco console cables are compatible with each other according to this and one of my HP manuals.

So, if this cable is an active converter it'll work. If it's a passive adaptor it'll destroy your USB port/device.
