HP Procurve not displaying MAC address in DHCP??
Just had a swap out of a failed 2524 procurve switch, and i've connected it direct to our network, for DHCP to dish out a temp IP so I can then access the web panel to configure.
The problem is that I cannot find the device in DHCP at all, the device works correctly as I have connected a laptop to the switch and I am able to log into the laptop using network credentials plus the laptop gets an IP from our DHCP server. I am finding this a tad ber-faffling. Apart from using an IP address scanner and attempting to log into every unnamed host on the network, has anyone else had this happen at all?
PS I do not have a serial cable or a laptop with a serial port to hand either :(
