HP vs Cisco CLI Commands

Category:HP -> Routing and Switching

So here it comes when I actually had an opportunity to configure HP 5800 switches. I’d like to say that not a single issue arose. Mainly because there are tons of literature on the official HP website with very good pictures and diagrams to every section of the configuration guides. Hence, there’s really not many new things to write about here. Everything is written already. Anyway I’ll squeeze out some important things that could simplify life to a Cisco engineer who has layed his hands on an HP switch for the first time.

There’s a little table to start with.
