Working on configuring new C9300 switches. In the getting started guide for configuration it indicates I can plug PC into any unmanaged network port on the switch and use the WEBUI site at 192.168.1.1 to configure the switch. The PC must be configured for DHCP and it should get an IP from the switch.
This is not working and looking to see if there is a service to start on the switch.
I can connect to the switch console port and access the cli. Limited CLI experience and would prefer the GUI to configure the switch.
Solved! Go to Solution.
It should be the S/N of the device, did you get the S/N from a sticker on the switch?
Did you try both upper case and lower case version of the letters? I am guessing it is case-sensitive.
Optionally you could boot it up again and log in via CLI and issue the show inventory command to confirm the S/N is correct, then just run the write erase again and reboot.
Did you already access the CLI and say "No" to the initial configuration message?
It may have stopped the day 0 configuration and just left you with a blank config.
Have you tried rebooting it and then connecting only to a network port with your computer? You may also have to log in to the switch via CLI and issue the "write erase" command and reboot it without saving the config to get it back to the day 0 prompt.
Otherwise have you tried giving your PC a static IP in the 192.168.1.x range and then try accessing the webUI?
Using the write erase option then rebooting the switch worked. I can now open the Webui interface but cannot logon. I'm using username webui and the serial number of the switch as the password but not able to logon.
Anyone know what the default password is?
Hey Bobby, I'm having the same issue. When you did a write erase did you save the config before reloading the switch? Aslo, can you tell me which port you plugged into (I just tried port 1) on the switch and did it automatically assign you an ip or did you have to manually configure it on your nic card? Thanks.
Hi Mark, I waited more than 3 minutes and still nothing. I guess I'll try the write erase without saving the configuration (as someone else suggested) and then reload to see if it makes any difference and report back. Thanks.
Mark, it's a brand new switch out of the box so it has no config on it whatsoever. It seems like it should be pretty straight forward but not sure why it's not. Still working on it and will update you. Thanks again for the quick replies.
Yeah, still no joy. After the write erase, it's back to the default "Would you like to enter the initial configuration dialog? [yes/no]". I still don't get any IP and even when I manually enter an IP I can't ping 192.168.1.1 or access it via browser. So should I enter "no" on the config dialog and then do a "show run" so I can copy the config here? Thanks.
Hi Mark, so the switch finally assigned my pc an IP of 192.168.1.2 however when I try to connect via a browser to https://192.168.1.1 it gives me the following errors:
This site can't provide a secure connection
192.168.1.1 uses an unsupported protocol.
Can't connect securely to this page
This might be because the site uses outdated or unsafe TLS security settings....
Does this mean we have to "build the webgui from scratch in cli"? If so, how would I go about doing so? Thanks.
