I have a 7450 switch that I need to use for testing. I just need an open switch with an IP address. I need a 192.168.x.x/24 address assigned to the switch and all devices attached be able to communicate through any ports. It is running version 08.0.40T213.
I have done an "erase start" & "reload" so it is a blank switch.
The on-line information I have seen says to enter "conf t" then "ip address 192.168.x.x/24". It says "unknown command"
It also would not let me give vlan 1 an IP address like I do with Cisco.
The other thing I have seen was to give the management interface an IP address. That appeared to take but nothing can ping it.
When I do a "sh run" the only lines it has are:
interface management 1
ip address 192.168.1.254 255.255.255.0
Any suggestions would be appreciated.

I'm not sure if it makes a difference but is the switch set up as a switch or a router? What does Show Version say?
The other thing you might try is "ip address 192.168.x.x 255.255.255.0" instead of "ip address 192.168.x.x/24".
