I want to start by setting my background - I have NO experience with enterprise gear. that might be unusual for this forum but never the less it's where I'm at. I'm an electrician by trade and enjoy most things IT and learning new stuff. In an impulse buy, I purchased an EX2200 POE 48 port switch off Ebay because I want to work towards networking my home and also run a couple of POE cameras, so had hoped this could be a 1 switch solution and the first addition to my network cabinet.
Now for the issue - Everything :). I guess it's already been configured by where ever it was previously installed, the seller wasn't the old owner just an IT company that wasn't able to assist. I've read what I can from various juniper youtubes and the quick start guide, and it sounds like I should be able to connect to port 0 with network cable and use Jweb, but I don't seem to get anywhere. When the unit turns on it's like it's just power cycling, maybe hunting for something that it's not obviously finding. The Sys light is on and off along with the cycling and the only other light that flashes is the MGMT port on the rear. I've also tried network cable into the port at the rear but again it just continues power cycling. I don't have an rs232 adaptor to try that way. If i use a straight USB-A cable into the only usb port which is under the MGMT fans turn on but no unknown devices pop up into Dev Manager so I figure that's not any way it's meant to be done, but hey can't blame a guy for giving it a go. :)
If there's someone out there that could help me out I'd be more than appreciative, or should I cut my losses and run with tail between legs to find something else that might be less of a headache? and I ask that genuinely not knowing if this gear is easy or not to operate, but my lack of skill and luck so far has set the scene haha.
Thanks again Everyone
