It is late and I am replacing a mini switch with a CE500. I configured the device through the web front end, but it won't show up even when I try a show cdp nei from the upstream 6513. The 6513 shows it is connected and so does the CE500 - green in the GUI.
I can't ping it either.
This is a worrysome kind of thing. I wonder if the www access is secure. It wasn't in previous switches and was turned off immediately upon powering the unit up. I saw no posts on this subject. Guess everyone was working so hard on getting the thing to work at all.
Corporate security really dislikes web servers on the network. Something about overall security or something. It would have been better to have the CLI... No www.
So much for the idea of a 5 minute job.
