Connecting an EX2200 Switch to a Management Console Using Mini-USB Type-B Console Port

You can configure and manage EX2200–C switches by using the RJ-45 console port or the Mini-USB Type-B console port. However, the console input will be active only on one port at a time, that is, only one port will be set active at a time.
If your laptop or PC does not have a DB-9 male connector pin or RJ-45 connector pin, you can connect your laptop or PC directly to an EX2200–C switch using a mini-USB cable that has a Standard-A USB connector on one end and a Mini-USB Type-B (5 pin) connector on the other end.

This section describes the process of connecting an EX2200–C switch to the management console using the Mini-USB Type-B console port.

For information about configuring and managing an EX2200–C switch using the RJ-45 console port, see Connecting a Switch to a Management Console.

Before you begin connecting an EX2200–C switch using Mini-USB Type-B console port:

  • Ensure that the USB to Serial driver is installed on the host machine. You can download the driver from https://webdownload.juniper.net/swdl/dl/secure/site/1/record/5029.html .
  • Ensure that the hyper terminal properties of the console server or laptop are set as follows:
    • Baud rate—9600
    • Flow control—None
    • Data—8
    • Parity—None
    • Stop bits—1
    • DCD state—Disregard

Ensure that you have the following parts and tools available:

  • 1 mini-USB cable with Standard-A and Mini-USB Type- B (5-pin) connectors (not provided).

To connect the switch to the console using Mini-USB Type-B console port:

  1. Connect the Standard-A connector of the mini-USB cable to the host machine (PC or Laptop).
  2. Connect the Mini-USB Type-B (5-pin) connector of the mini-USB cable to the Mini-USB Type-B console port (labeled CON) on the switch.
  3. Set the Mini-USB Type-B console port as the active console port by using the command port-type.
    By default, the RJ-45 port is set as an active console port and the Mini-USB Type-B port is the passive console port. For information about configuring the console port type, see Configuring the Console Port Type (CLI Procedure).
  4. Reboot the switch.
  5. Reboot the switch.

Once the connection is established, you will get the control and the log messages on the Mini-USB Type-B console port.
