Your switch is stuffed. I believe this switch has a lifetime warranty. Give Netgear a call and get them to send you a replacement.
Absolutely. In the TACACS configuration, you can restrict the commands you allow, but you would do better to move that logic into a web application, rather than give your customers direct access into the switches. Simply put, you can create very granular access control using TACACS, but it is very easy to screw-up, and keeping the user-> device -> port -> ...
Not unless you install some kind of bridge on the PC with the two NIC's, no. This is a pretty standard setup for a redundant network. Your situation mirrors an example in the ciscopress switch redundancy article.
The problem is like this: dmeg says the negotiation is complete but the switch is not ready and the led of the port on the switch is still red and it get a while for it to get green. Your problem seems to be that the switchport isn't configured as a spanning tree edge port. Edge ports are optimized to forward to quickly; otherwise the switch port goes ...
I'm not sure that I understand your network setup. In your management port group you work with a VLAN trunk range of 0-4094. This implies you're working with tagged VLANs on your uplinks, see Edit the VLAN Policy on a Distributed Port Group in the vSphere Web Client. On the other hand, the port group that gives you trouble works untagged. To the best of my ...
A port must have a VLAN assignment. If you need it to be completely disconnected, set it to a nonexistent VLAN and shut down the port. interface fa0/1 switchport access vlan 901 no switchport access vlan 1 shutdown (I'm not sure if the "no" is required. Don't have a switch at my fingers with an open port to test). That said, shutdown should be sufficient ...
You need to connect to a local session (with the serial cable and a serial/usb converter if necessary) to create an initial IP configuration. After that, you can use a web interface for further config. All this is outlined in the docs which are easy to find. Why didn't you try this first?
T1-T32 refers to not a switch port, but a Trunk Group which can consist of various combinations of ports that are interconnecting to other switches on the network.
