When I connected my new ProCurve Switch 5300XL Series to my ProCurve Switch 4000M using a Gigabit-SX or Gigabit-LX connection, the link did not come up. Why not?

The ProCurve Gigabit-SX module used in the ProCurve Switch 4000m, 8000m, 1600m, 2424m and 2400m is set by factory-default to “1000 Fdx” whereas the factory-default setting for the ProCurve Gigabit-SX/LX-LC Mini-GBIC used in the ProCurve Switch 5300xl Series is set to “Auto”. The configuration must be set to match on both ends to provide Gigabit connectivity.
