I've got a couple 1400 Procurves that I need to clear the configuration on. I can't find any documentation on how to do this.

I found a document for the 1800 series that said to loop a cable from port 1 to port 2 for about 40 seconds to restore the default configuration. I tried that method but it didn't seem to do much. Anybody know how to do this or where I can find the procedure documentation?

Those are unmanaged switches.

They have no configuration you could change and thus no way to reset them.

The HP V1400 Switch Series consists of two unmanaged switches. http://h10010.www1.hp.com/wwpc/us/en/sm/WF05a/12883-12883-4172267-4172303-4172280-4237515.html


The HP Procurve 1400-24G (or V1400-24G) is an unmanaged switch, so simply removing the power and turning it back on will reset any counters and timers.

See the 1400-24G manual for more information. (PDF)
