Trunk HP c3000 GbE2c to Cisco 5672 vPC setup

Hello, first post here.  Don't have a lot of experience setting up HP Switching but I need to get this configuration working and I KNOW somebody has to have done this before.

 

I would like to trunk 4 ports on my GbE2c (21-24) with 2 cisco switches in a virtual port channel (vPC) config.  I have done that part and confirmed that both sides are up on the HP and Cisco.  However I can't ping any of the blades inside the chassis.  I am also not quite sure on the pvid and vlan tagging setup combinations that I should be using.  Below are my current config:

 

/* Slot: 1
/c/sys/dlight e
/c/sys/ssnmp
rcomm "fsh_r0"
wcomm "fsh_rw"
/c/port 2

Currently it feels like a routing issue as inbound packet count on my trunk ports are factors higher than the outbound and the reverse is true on the blades.  Outbound is higher than inbound.

 

I know VLAN 110 and 100 are functional on the Cisco side as I have static ports set in each one of those vlans on the switches and they are routeable.

 

Current IP settings for the switch are shown as DHCP above but are:

 

192.168.30.213

255.255.255.0

DFGW:  192.168.30.2

 

Routing table is showing default route as 192.168.30.2

Re: Trunk HP c3000 GbE2c to Cisco 5672 vPC setup

Resolved.  Needed to add VLAN's to my trunk ports as well as to the various server blade ports.

 

Did a write-up on it, hope it helps somebody else out.
