Options for Initial Configuration
After you complete the hardware installation, you need to setup the switch with configuration required to enable traffic to pass through the network. On your first day with your new device, you can perform a number of tasks to ensure that your device is online, reachable and easily configured.
When the supervisor module is shipped, the factory default setting for MANUAL_BOOT is no. This means that when you first power on the device, it will always boot automatically. So these are the first options available to you for initial configuration:
Configuring the Switch Using the Web User Interface
Configuring the Switch Using the CLI
Configuring the Switch in the ROMMON Mode
This option requires you to interrupt autoboot (factory default) and enter the ROMMON prompt to enter the required settings. Use this option if you want to boot the system by using an image that is located on a TFTP server.
