I have a CISCO SGE2000 in standalone mode with other 4 switches (not CISCO) connected to it through optical links. I setted the ipv4 address on SGE2000 and the admin password. It works without any problem but sumetimes and suddenly It seems to reset itself. In other words the ipv4 is resetted to factory default a the password too. I can't understand why? Thanks you in advance.

Unless you're forgetting to write the config back then that sounds properly broken, have you asked Cisco themselves? I think you need to as I think you may have dead flash or something on the actual switch sorry.

I found this on google. Could be the solution? – cubob Nov 26 '10 at 11:39
you need to do the following steps to permanently save your settings go to Admin > File Management > Copy Files click on Copy Configuration button set Source File Name as Running Config set Destination File Name as Startup Config click Apply – cubob Nov 26 '10 at 11:40
ah yes, so you weren't writing your config back - you're not the first person to make that mistake and won't be the last - glad you're sorted. – Chopper3 Nov 26 '10 at 12:10
