Reset HP A5800 Switch to Factory Default Configuration

On the test, I reset the configuration on the HP A5800 Series Switch JC103A.

And so, connect to the device and see what files are in the device’s memory:


By default, the configuration is saved in the file config.cfg, let’s say that it is, so we’ll delete it:

delete config.cfg

We removed the configuration file, now we will reboot the device:


On the offer to keep the configuration we will refuse and on the next issue agree to the reboot:

This command will reboot the device. Current configuration will be lost, save current configuration? [Y/N]:n
This command will reboot the device. Continue? [Y/N]:y

Done, the switch will start with the default configuration, after which you can begin to configure, for example, as I described in the article – Настройка HP 5800

You can also try to reset the configuration as follows:

reset saved-configuration

Either through the Boot menu, to open it, when you turn on the device, press Ctrl+D and pressing the number 5, we select in the menu the reset of the configuration:

5. Restore to factory default configuration

Then, press 0 to select the reboot:

0. Reboot

When starting the switch, make sure that the configuration is reset:

display current-configuration
display saved-configuration

Configuring PIM on HP A5800 Switch

First make a copy of the configuration file on the tftp server:

backup startup-configuration to

To configure the PIM on the HP A5800 switch, connect to the switch via telnet and enter the following commands:

1) Enable the multicast routing switch and pim-sm in vlan 963 which comes from the provider.

multicast routing-enable
interface Vlan-interface 963
ip address
pim sm

2) Turn on pim-sm and igmp in vlan 964 on which IPTV will be broadcast to the local network.

interface Vlan-interface 964
ip address
pim sm
igmp enable

3) We’ll assign the static ip from which the multicast is broadcast.


4) Add the route to ip from which the multicast is broadcast.

ip route-static Vlan-interface963

5) Suppose that we accept multicast on vlan 963 tag.

interface Bridge-Aggregation1
port hybrid vlan 963 tagged

6) We will configure any free port for iptv verification and connect to it a computer for example with a playlist in the VLC player.

interface GigabitEthernet1/0/5
port access vlan 964

To test the health and diagnostics, you can use for example the following commands:

display pim interface
display pim interface verbose
display pim rp-info
display pim bsr-info
display pim neighbor
display pim routing-table
display igmp interface
display pim control-message counters
display pim claimed-route

SNMP OIDs for the HP 5800 Switch

I’ll list some of the OIDs I used:
Determine the OID of the processor load by running the command in Linux:

snmpwalk -v 2c -c сommunity host .
snmpwalk -v 2c -c сommunity host .

As a result of the execution of the first command, a list of OIDs will be displayed, those in which a value greater than 0 means CPU loading. If the switches are stacked, then the OID with a value greater than zero will be greater than one. The second team is looking at the description, ours will be “Board”.

Determine the OID of memory usage:

snmpwalk -v 2c -c сommunity host .

Determine the OID of the temperature:

snmpwalk -v 2c -c сommunity host .

OID to view the ARP list:


We look in what vlan are ip:
