How to configure an external Cisco MDS 9124 Switch
I have worked with some other Fibre switches before but not Cisco and was wondering if someone can pass me some quick info on how to configure the MDS 9124. I saw the Quick Guide and it briefly talked about config, but do I have to go thru hyperterminal to do the initial IP config? Is there a default one already I can use to get to the WebGUI. Some of the ones I worked with (like the ones that come with the Bladecenter) have a default IP, where I can enter the IP into the web browser and access the GUI right away and start doing configs.
With the MDS 9124, can I do this? Or do I have to configure IP thru hyperterminal and then install Fabric Manager etc.

Using the console port is easy.
Getting FM on the other hand is a pain. You need a Cisco account to download it. Us end users don't seem be able to get an account as we don't purchase the equipment from Cisco. Cisco's MDS business model sucks.
I have been a MDS user for close on 5 years through different channel partners and I have never been given an CCO account. A billion IP switch users have them. It does not make any sense.
