Solution:

The LCD on the front panel of the EX-series switches is a character display that can show two lines of text, each 16 characters in length. The LCD displays a variety of information about the switch and also provides a menu to perform basic operations such as initial setup and reboot. You can use the two buttons next to the LCD to display the menu and select menu options. The LCD panel operates in three modes:

  • Idle mode - The LCD is in this mode when the switch operates normally. The second line displays the status of the fans and power supply, and the system temperature.

  • Navigation mode - The LCD switches to this mode from idle mode when you press the menu button next to the top right corner of the LCD; you use this same button to select menu options. Use the button next to the bottom right corner of the LCD to scroll through the menu. The following menu options are available through the LCD:

    • Restore to Factory Default

    • Reboot

    • Initial Setup

    • LED Mode

    • Alarm mode - The LCD switches to this mode when alarms occur.

In all three modes the first line displays the device name and the virtual chassis ID (when the switch is a member of a virtual chassis). The text in the second line changes depending on the mode.

NOTE: The Chassis view in the J-Web interface also displays the LCD. From the J-Web interface, you can view real-time status information and alarms in the LCD.

The LCD display on the EX switch contains two lines:

  • Line 1:   NN:RR HHHHHHHHHH
