I have 2 brand new 2960X switches and neither are responding to cli commands via the RJ45 to DB9 cisco cable. Text is displayed but when I hit enter on the keyboard nothing happens and the switches just sit at whatever the last boot ouput is. 2960-XR just sits at 'vlan1, changed state to up.....' and I am never prompted for the express setup and no response to any keyboard input.
I know the cable/keyboard works because I can connect it to a 2911 right beside the 2960's and have no problems using the same cable.
Anyone seen this before?

Recieved today also 2 2960-x switches.
Had the same issue...playing arround with secureCRT settings (rts/cts, xon/xoff etc) ...no results.
Tried Putty and it worked right away ...indeed strange have never seen this before.
Installed latest software 150.2ex4 still the same.
Had the same problem with SecureCRT on 12 of these switches. Indeed very strange. It works like you said with Putty. But after speaking Vandyke Software they suggested changing the flow control to "none". It fixed the problem.
This did not work for me, the switch was working when i configured at my desk and then it stopped working when i racked it. Any other ideas? I have opened ticket with CCO but waiting for engineer to be assigned
