    So, I finally have my lab all cabled and I have a few spare minutes to start the initial configuration of the vmFocus lab.

    What do we do first? Well I always start with networking and making sure that my switch is running the latest firmware. OK, I do have one exception to this, when you check the manufacturer's website, if you have release 8.9.5 and 9.0.0, I tend to stick with 8.9.5 as it should be more proven.

    Anyway, back on topic, the HP v1910 24G switch is a beast for the money, some of it's features are:

    - Gigabit
    - Layer 2 Managed
    - Layer3 Static Routing with 32 routes
    - Access Control Lists
    - STP, RSTP and MSTP
    - 802.3X Flow Control
    - VLAN with 256 simultaneous
    - Link Aggregation
    - Lifetime Warranty

    It should be a worthy addition to any home lab.

    Yeah, they're good pieces of kit, the new HP switches that we're bring in (not the core ones) are the V1900 series (the 24, 48 and POE versions).

    For work we generally use the HP2510's, 2610's and 2810's as Edge and 2910's for Core if we are rolling with HP kit.

    I didn't know the v1910 and v1810 even existed until I started looking for a home lab switch.

    So far I'm very impressed with it.

    Yeah, we used to use the HP2510's, 2610's and 2810's but after buying the V1900 series I've been impressed with them. Have to buy a new core switch this/next year, will look into the 2910's, thanks :)
