    I have just replaced my two HP ProCurve 4000M's with new ones (same brand, same model). The first switch replacement went without a hitch. The second switch is giving me a problem. I cannot get to it unless I connect directly to it using the serial port. It was given an IP address by DHCP (I'm running a windows 2000 network) but I could not ping the address at all. I went into the switch and changed that IP Address, reset the switch but still cannot connect or ping.

    Other than that, the switch is operational and there seem to be no network issues.

    Why can't I ping the darn thing?

    Can anyone shed some light on this and perhaps figure out what is going on?

    TIA,
    Pat

    I would advise against setting up a switch with DHCP. Set it them up staticly and exclude it from the DHCP scope.

    Actually it was only set up initially using DHCP. I changed the IP address, made it static and excluded it from the DHCP scope. It would not ping either initially or after the ip change.
