    If you have HP 4100 series switches read me now!!!

    If you have any switches in the 4100 series i.e 4104gl 4108gl then make sure you have the latest firmware on them which is G.07.107

    I just found out today that depending on the version of java you have installed that when you connect with a web browser it can crash the switch.

    The question is how to check the firmware version without the possibility of crashing the switch! (Unless I get up and actually go to them with a serial cable!)

    You can also verify the firmware version over snmp.

    Code:
    root@goliath:~# snmpwalk -Os -c public -v 1 10.73.26.200 sysDescr
    sysDescr.0 = STRING: ProCurve J8770A Switch 4204vl, revision L.11.08, ROM L.10.02 (/sw/code/build/rmm(rm11))

    any firmware newer than something like G.07_50 is a complete disaster for us, for some reason HP have disabled the use of IP routing at the same time as port trunking on this switch in newer firmwares

    Also you need to be aware that upgrading the firmware past a certain point on this series of switches disables the use of 3rd party GBICs. We have some Finisar GBICs in our switch that were bought before the current support team all worked here, and as such we've never dared upgrade the firmware.

    Is this specific to the HP 4100 range only ? We have a rather obsolete HP4000m with 64 ports in use.
    I'm planning on replacing once funds permit as we do have issues in the building it supplies that is in-addition to one of the fans failing every now and then.

    Yes have sucessfully used the support on more than one occasion, but for fans it just seems easy to remove it degunk, lube it and reinstall. Job done in half an hour. Its the down time for the clients that causes the headache.

    Does carrying out your own work on the fans void the lifetime warranty or is it not an issue?
