Ce 500 configuration

  1. 1. C H A P T E R 1 Getting Started GuideAbout This Guide This guide explains how to configure a Catalyst Express 500 switch for the first time. Basic configuration involves assigning network settings and a password to the switch. After you complete the basic configuration, you can access the internal device manager application to manage and customize the switch. The device manager is an easy-to-use interface that provides tools for configuring, monitoring, and problem solving.Before You Begin Before you power or install the switch, review the safety information in the Regulatory Compliance and Safety Information for the Catalyst Express 500 Switch that accompanies this guide.For More Information For complete information about installing and using the switch, see the documentation online at Cisco.com > Technical Support & Documentation > Switches > Cisco Catalyst Express 500 Series Switches.

  2. 2. Chapter 1 Getting Started GuideQuick Tour This illustration shows the Ethernet ports, LEDs, and other features on the switch. To set up the switch, you use the SETUP button, an Ethernet port, and the SYSTEM, SETUP, and port LEDs. The model shown is a Catalyst Express 500-24LC. Your switch model might look slightly different.

  6. 6. Chapter 1 Getting Started Guide Run Express SetupStep 8 Enter the network settings. Note: all entries must be in English letters and Arabic numbers. • Management Interface (VLAN): We recommend using the default, VLAN 1. The management VLAN establishes an IP connection to the switch. • IP Assignment Mode: We recommend using the default, Static, which means 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. (Later, you can use the IP address to access the switch through the device manager.) • Subnet Mask: Select a mask from the drop-down list. • Default Gateway: Enter the IP address of the router. • Username: Enter a unique name. • 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. • Optional Settings: Enter a Host Name for the switch. The date and time fields are populated from your PC. For more information about the network settings, click Help on the device manager toolbar.Step 9 Click Submit to save changes and finish basic configuration. When you click Submit, the information that you entered is saved. You have completed the initial switch setup. If you click Cancel, the fields are cleared, and you can start over.

  7. 7. Chapter 1 Getting Started Guide Run Express SetupStep 10 Immediately after you click Submit in Step 9, the Smartports dialog window appears. Click Yes and Submit to accept the predefined port roles. The Smartports window appears. Here you can change the predefined roles or apply new port roles. Click No and Submit to apply the Smartports roles yourself. When the device manager window appears, locate the Contents menu on the left side of the window. Click Configure and then Smartports. Follow these steps: 1. Select a port role from the pull-down menu. 2. Click a port on which to apply the selected port role. 3. Click Submit to save the Smartports roles. We recommend that you apply the Cisco Smartports roles now. The ports are then correctly configured before they are connected to devices. Smartports roles provide optimal performance on port connections, including appropriate levels of reliability, security, and availability. They also help prevent many problems caused by port misconfigurations. The only requirements are to decide and write down which switch port will be connected to which device type. You can connect a WAN device to any port. Apply the Router port role for this type of connection. Use an uplink port to connect to another switch and apply the Switch port role. See the Smartports Role Descriptions section for more information.Step 11 When you are finished, disconnect your PC from the switch to end the session.

  8. 8. Chapter 1 Getting Started Guide Run Express SetupSmartports Role Descriptions Smartports Roles Description Desktop Apply this role on switch ports connecting to desktop devices, such as desktop PCs, workstations, notebook PCs, and other client-based hosts. Note: Do not apply the Desktop role on ports that are connected to routers or to other switches. IP Phone+ Apply this role on switch ports connecting to IP phones. A Desktop desktop device, such as a PC, can be connected to the IP phone. Both the IP phone and connected PC would have access to the network and the Internet. Access Apply this role on switch ports connecting to wireless access Point points (APs). Connected to the AP are mobile devices, such as wireless laptop PCs. Printer Apply this role on switch ports connecting to a printer, such as a network printer or an external print server. Guest Apply this role on switch ports that are used by guests and visitors. Guests have access to the Internet but not access to your internal network. You can connect an AP on this port to provide guest wireless access. Server Apply this role on switch ports connecting to servers that provide network services, such as exchange servers, collaborative servers, terminal servers, file servers, and DHCP servers. Switch Apply this role on switch ports connecting to other switches. Router Apply this role on switch ports connecting to WAN devices that connect to the Internet, such as routers, firewalls, or virtual private network concentrators. Other Apply this role on switch ports if you do not want to assign a specialized role on the port. Getting Started Guide for the Catalyst Express 500 Switches 1-8 OL-9340-01
  9. 9. Chapter 1 Getting Started Guide Install the SwitchInstall the Switch Before you install the switch, review the Regulatory Compliance and Safety Information for the Catalyst Express 500 Switch document that came with your switch. When selecting an installation site, observe these guidelines: • Cabling is away from sources of electrical noise, such as radios, power lines, and fluorescent lighting fixtures. • Clearance to the switch front and rear panels is such that – Airflow around the switch and through the vents is unrestricted. – Front-panel LEDs can be easily read. – Access to ports is sufficient for unrestricted cabling. – AC power cord can reach from the AC power outlet to the connector on the switch rear panel. The power outlet must be accessible at all time because it serves as the main method to disconnect power from the switch. • Temperature does not exceed 113°F (45°C), humidity does not exceed 85 percent, and altitude at the installation site is not greater than 10,000 feet (3049 m).
