switch-5-1 is a Netgear 10Gbe managed switch. The model is ProSafe XS716T. This switch is unlike many of the other switches in that you cannot ssh/telnet into it. You must tunnel into the private network and access it via it's IP address:

Currently, the switch only has a single gigabit link between it and switch-4-1. I hope to purchase some GBICs/SFPs and then link it with RACK0.

Quick Starting a fresh NetGear switch

By default, the XS716T will have a starting IP address of and a subnet mask of I connected to this switch by changing my local Windows 10 laptop's network adapter IP Address to and my subnet to This allows my laptop to be in the same LAN as the network switch. Then I downloaded Netgear's Smart Control Center: https://www.netgear.com/support/product/Smart%20Control%20Center%20(SCC).aspx#download

Once I connected to any port on the switch via ethernet cable to my laptop, I was able to access the switch's configuration page with a web browser by putting the switch's default IP address into the URL entry. From here, I was able to assign the proper static configurations.

Note: the 'Apply' button on the top right of the switch configuration screen saves the configuration. Be really careful not to save a bad configuration! The 'Apply' button doesn't really give a good indication the settings have been applied so only click it if you're really sure.

The default network configuration is: IP Address: Subnet Mask: Gateway:

I want this switch to change to the IP address that's within the cluster network: IP Address: Subnet Mask: Gateway:

1) Create VLANs for BKS private network and UCSF Public network. Private network is VLAN 200. Public is VLAN 100. 2)

I have accidentally broken this configuration many times. Here's some of the actions I did: - Changing all the port PVIDs (Port VLAN ID) from 1 to 200 without having the necessary VLANs setup.
