    You can buy the non pro from HP as well as the pro.

    Also includes a 30-day trial version of ProCurve Manager Plus 2.1

    They might be but that does allow you to centrally manage them from one interface does it?

    Re: HP Procurve switches

    Is central management the issue, or will central monitoring be sufficent. If you just want to monitor switches something like Nagios or Cacti will be sufficent.

    I want to be able to just check them all every now and then to make sure things are running as they should be.

    Nagios and/or Cacti can do this for you.

    mrforgetful: But then I said manage not monitor but either way you'd spend less time with a central management/monitoring solution than going into each device manually via telnet.
