Setelah melakukan upgrade Firmware, Langkah selanjutnya adalah melakukan konfigurasi dasar pada Switch HP V1910 24G. Konfigurasi yang akan kita lakukan disini adalah sebagai berikut:
- Set Identitas
- Set IP Address
- Set NTP Server
- Set Password
System time is perhaps one of the most overlooked items for networks. I can’t stress how important this is, if you are trying to troubleshoot an error and the time stamps are 10-04-00 01:12, leaves you thinking when did the issue occur?
To setup select Device from the left hand column and then System Time and then Net Time.
In this example, we are using the Source Interface as VLAN 1, which is the default VLAN. Our external NTP Servers are:
0.vmware.pool.ntp.org – 188.8.131.52
1.vmware.pool.ntp.org – 184.108.40.206
Select you time zone and click apply, once done you should see Clock Status: synchronized.
Moving down the list we are going to change the password for the admin user, select Device from the left hand column then Users then Modify. Select admin tick Password Modify and then enter your new password
The last thing we are going to do is set a static IP address for the switch, we wouldn’t want to leave it on DHCP would we? To do this select Network from the left menu, then VLAN Interface, then Modify. Select Manual and enter the static IP address.
This may sound crazy, but before you click apply, write down the last octet of the static IP. You wouldn’t believe the amount of times I do this and the moment I click save/apply I get a phone call, colleague asking for help and I forget the damn thing.
Click apply and reconnect to the switch on the new IP address and with the password the admin user we applied earlier.
