Configuring the WS-C3850-12X48U-E:

You can configure the switch using various methods, including the command-line interface (CLI), the web interface, and Cisco Prime Infrastructure. In this section, we will discuss how to configure the switch using the CLI.

Before configuring the switch, it is important to ensure that it has been installed and connected to the network properly. Once this is done, follow these steps to configure the switch:

Step 1: Access the CLI

To access the CLI, open a console connection to the switch using a terminal emulator program such as PuTTY. Once connected, you will see a command prompt.

Step 2: Enter privileged mode

To enter privileged mode, type “enable” at the command prompt and press Enter. You will be prompted to enter the enable password. If you have not set an enable password, simply press Enter.

Step 3: Configure the switch

Now that you are in privileged mode, you can configure the switch by entering commands at the command prompt. For example, to configure the hostname of the switch, enter the following command:

hostname <hostname>

Replace “<hostname>” with the desired hostname for the switch. To configure an IP address for the switch, enter the following command:

interface vlan 1 ip address <IP address> <subnet mask>

Replace “<IP address>” and “<subnet mask>” with the desired IP address and subnet mask for the switch.

Step 4: Save the configuration

Once you have finished configuring the switch, it is important to save the configuration so that it is not lost if the switch loses power or is restarted. To save the configuration, enter the following command:

copy running-config startup-config

This will save the current configuration to the switch’s non-volatile memory.

Step 5: Verify the configuration

You can enter the following command to verify that the configuration has been applied correctly:

show running-config

This will display the current configuration of the switch.

Conclusion:

It is a straightforward process to configure the switch using the CLI. This can be done by following these simple steps. However, it is important to have a good understanding of networking concepts and the specific requirements of your network before attempting to configure the switch. If you are unsure about how to configure the switch, consult the documentation provided by Cisco or seek the assistance of a qualified network administrator.
