How to back up configuration and update firmware on HP ProCurve 1810g series switches

Follow

If you’re running firmware older than version 1.20 on your HP ProCurve 1810g switch, we recommend updating it due to known issues with Auvik. Before updating your firmware, it’s a good idea to back up your running config in case the update process erases it.

To back up your configuration:

  1. Log into your HP switch web console.
  2. Go to Maintenance > Backup Manager.
  3. For Backup Method, select HTTP.
  4. Leave Server IP and File Name fields blank.
  5. For Backup Type, select Configuration.
  6. Click Apply.
  7. Don’t disturb the browser window while the backup is in progress. It may take about three minutes for the backup to complete.

Now you’re ready to update the firmware. Go to the HP website, enter the model number of your switch in the search bar, and download firmware version 1.20 or higher. You must reboot the switch after the update is complete.

To update the firmware:

  1. Log into your HP switch web console.
  2. Go to Maintenance > Update Manager.
  3. For update method, select HTTP.
  4. Click Browse to select the designated file.
  5. Leave Server IP and File Name fields blank.
  6. For Update Type, select Code.
  7. In the Image field, choose Active.
  8. Click Download.
  9. When the file transfer is complete, you’ll see a status of File Transfer is completed successfully. Click Reboot Switch.

Once your switch reboots, the update is complete.
