Can you reset the managed switch to default settings maybe they have a
setting from it's 1st hand?

I have had issues in the past whereby adding a new switch into a set
of existing switches (cisco in this case) did not result in the
desired network connectivity.  A reboot of the new switch and the
existing switches resolved it so maybe it is something to do with the
switch tables in either the 2nd hand switches or the existing switches
in the network if there are any?

Can you flash the firmware of the new 2nd hand switch?
