Running Express Setup

When you first set up the switch, you should use Express Setup to enter the initial IP information. This process enables the switch to connect to local routers and the Internet. You can then access the switch through the IP address for additional configuration.

You need this equipment to set up the switch:

PC with Windows XP, Vista, or Windows 7

Web browser (Internet Explorer 6.0, 7.0 or Firefox 1.5, 2.0, 3.0 or later) with JavaScript enabled

Straight-through or crossover Category 5 or higher grade cable


Note Before running Express Setup, disable any pop-up blockers or proxy settings on your browser and any wireless client running on your PC.


To run Express Setup:

Step 1 

Make sure that nothing is connected to the switch.

During Express Setup, the switch acts as a DHCP server. If your PC has a static IP address, temporarily configure your PC settings to use DHCP before going to the next step.

Note Write down the static IP address. You will need this IP address in Step 10.

Step 2 

Connect power to the switch.

See the wiring instructions in the "Grounding the Switch" section and the "Wiring the DC Power Source" section.

Step 3 

After the switch powers on, it begins the boot fast sequence, which can take up to 60 seconds.

During boot fast, the SYS LED blinks green, and the other LEDs turn green.

When boot fast is complete, the SYS LED turns green, and the other LEDs turn off.

Troubleshooting:

If the SYS LED is off (system not powered on), continues to blink green (POST in progress), or is solid red (Fault), contact the Cisco Technical Assistance Center (TAC). The SYS LED should be solid green when operating normally in Cisco IOS.

Step 4 

Press the Express Setup button for 2 to 3 seconds. This button is recessed behind the front panel, so you can use a simple tool, such as a paper clip.

When you press the Express Setup button, a switch port LED begins blinking green.

Step 5 

Connect a Category 5 Ethernet cable (not provided) from the blinking switch port to the Ethernet port on your PC.

The port LEDs on your PC and on the switch blink green while the switch configures the connection. The green port LEDs indicate a successful connection.

Troubleshooting:

If the port LEDs do not turn green after about 30 seconds, make sure that:

You connected the Ethernet cable to one of the downlink switch ports (not to an uplink port such as the dual-purpose port).

You are using an undamaged Category 5 or higher grade cable.

The other device is turned on.

Step 6 

When the Setup LED turns solid green, start a browser session on the PC. A login prompt appears.

Step 7 

Leave the username blank and enter the default password, cisco.

Note The switch ignores text in the username field.

The Express Setup window appears.

Troubleshooting:

If the Express Setup window does not appear, make sure that any pop-up blockers or proxy settings on your browser are disabled and that any wireless client is disabled on your PC or laptop.

Step 8 

Enter all entries in English letters and Arabic numbers.

Required Fields

In the Network Settings fields:

Management Interface (VLAN): We recommend using the default, VLAN 1. The management VLAN establishes an IP connection to the switch.

Note Enter a new VLAN ID only if you want to change the management interface through which you manage the switch. The VLAN ID range is 1 to 1001.

IP Assignment Mode: We recommend using the default, Static, so that the switch always has the IP address that you assign. Use the DHCP setting when you want the switch to automatically obtain an IP address from a DHCP server.

IP Address: Enter the IP address for the switch. You can later use the IP address to access the switch through Device Manager.

Subnet Mask: Select a mask from the drop-down list.

Default Gateway: Enter the IP address of the router.

Switch Password: Enter a password. The password can be from 1 to 25 alphanumeric characters, can start with a number, is case sensitive, allows embedded spaces, but does not allow spaces at the beginning or end. In the Confirm Password field, enter the password again.

Note You must change the password from the default password, cisco.

Step 9 

Optional Settings

You can enter the optional information now, or enter it later by using Device Manager. For more information about the Express Setup fields, see the online help for the Express Setup window.

Click Submit to save your changes and to complete the initial setup.

For more information about the optional settings, click Help on the toolbar.

Step 10 

After you click Submit, these events occur:

The switch is configured and exits Express Setup mode.

The browser displays a warning message and tries to connect with the earlier switch IP address. Typically, connectivity between the PC and the switch is lost because the configured switch IP address is in a different subnet from the IP address on the PC.

Step 11 

Turn off DC power at the source, disconnect all cables to the switch, and install the switch in your network. See the "Managing the Switch" section for information about configuring and managing the switch.

Step 12 

If you changed the static IP address on your PC in Step 1, change it to the previously configured static IP address.

Step 13 

You can now manage the switch by using the Device Manager, the Cisco IOS Command Line Interface (CLI), or both. See the "Managing the Switch" section for information about configuring and managing the switch.

You can display Device Manager by following these steps:

1. Start a web browser on your PC or laptop.

2. Enter the switch IP address, username, and password (assigned in Step 7) in the web browser, and press Enter. The Device Manager page appears.

Troubleshooting:

If the Device Manager page does not appear:

Confirm that the port LED for the switch port connected to your network is green.

Confirm that the PC or laptop that you are using to access the switch has network connectivity by connecting it to a well-known web server in your network. If there is no network connection, troubleshoot the network settings on the PC or laptop.

Make sure that the switch IP address in the browser is correct.

If the switch IP address in the browser is correct, the switch port LED is green, and the PC or laptop has network connectivity, continue troubleshooting by reconnecting the PC or laptop to the switch. Configure a static IP address on the PC or laptop that is in the same subnet as the switch IP address. For example:

If your switch IP address is 172.20.20.85 and your PC or laptop IP address is 172.20.20.84, both devices are in the same network.

If your switch IP address is 172.20.20.85 and your PC or laptop IP address is 10.0.0.2, the devices are in different networks and cannot communicate directly.

When the LED on the switch port connected to the PC or laptop is green, reenter the switch IP address in a web browser to display the Device Manager. When Device Manager appears, you can continue with the switch configuration.

Managing the Switch

After completing Express Setup and installing the switch in your network, you can use one of these options for further configuration:

Using Device Manager

Accessing the Command-Line Interface

Other Management Options

Using Device Manager

The simplest way to manage the switch is by using Device Manager in the switch memory. This web interface offers quick configuration and monitoring. You can access Device Manager from anywhere in your network through a web browser.

To use Device Manager:


Step 1 Launch a web browser on your PC or workstation.

Step 2 Enter the switch IP address in the web browser, and press Enter. The Device Manager page appears.

Step 3 Use Device Manager to perform basic switch configuration and monitoring. See the Device Manager online help for more information.


Accessing the Command-Line Interface

You can enter Cisco IOS commands and parameters through the CLI. Access the CLI by using one of these options:

Switch RJ-45 Console Port

Switch USB Mini-Type B Console Port

Switch RJ-45 Console Port

To use the switch RJ-45 console port:


Step 1 Connect the supplied RJ-45-to-DB-9 adapter cable to the 9-pin serial port on the PC. Connect the other end of the cable to the console port on the switch.

Step 2 Start a terminal-emulation program on the PC.

Step 3 Configure the PC terminal emulation software for 9600 baud, 8 data bits, no parity, 1 stop bit, and no flow control.

Step 4 Use the CLI to enter commands to configure the switch.

For more information, see the Cisco Connected Grid Switches System Management Software Configuration Guide at www.cisco.com/go/ie2000u-docs and the Cisco IOS 15.2M&T command references at http://www.cisco.com/en/US/products/ps11746/prod_command_reference_list.html.


Switch USB Mini-Type B Console Port

If you use the USB-mini console port, you must install the Cisco Windows USB device driver on the PC that is connected to that port. See the Cisco IE 2000U Switch Hardware Installation Guide for installation instructions.


Note You cannot use the switch console port and the switch USB-mini console port at the same time to access the CLI.


To use the switch USB mini-type B console port:


Step 1 Start a terminal-emulation program on the PC.

Step 2 Configure the PC terminal emulation software for 9600 baud, 8 data bits, no parity, 1 stop bit, and no flow control.

Step 3 Use the CLI to enter commands to configure the switch.

See the Cisco Connected Grid Switches System Management Software Configuration Guide at www.cisco.com/go/ie2000u-docs and the Cisco IOS 15.2M&T command references at http://www.cisco.com/en/US/products/ps11746/prod_command_reference_list.html.


Other Management Options

Cisco Configuration Professional is a PC-based application that provides device management for switches and routers. It simplifies configuration of features through easy-to-use wizards.

You can use SNMP management applications such as CiscoWorks LAN Management Solution (LMS) and Cisco netManager to configure and manage the switch. You also can manage it from an SNMP-compatible workstation that is running applications such as Cisco netManager or SunNet Manager.

Caution Removing and installing an SFP module can shorten its useful life. Do not remove and insert SFP modules more often than is absolutely necessary.

Connecting to Dual-Purpose Ports

Only one port on a dual-purpose port can be active at a time. If both ports are connected, the SFP module port has priority.

To connect to the ports:


Step 1 Insert either an RJ-45 connector to the 10/100/1000 port (see the "Connecting to 10/100 and 10/100/1000 Ports" section), or install an SFP module into the SFP module slot, and connect a cable to the SFP module port. (See the "Installing SFP Modules and Connecting to Ports" section.)

Step 2 Insert the other cable end into the other device.


Verifying Port Connectivity

After you connect to the switch port and another device, the port LED turns amber while the switch establishes a link. This process takes about 30 seconds, and then the LED turns green when the switch and the target device have an established link. If the LED is off, the target device might not be turned on, there might be a cable problem, or there might be a problem with the adapter installed in the target device.
