5800 Switch

Is it possible to make HP A5800 switch as a layer II switch.   I have 3 VLAN interfaces configured on my core switch such as:

 

 

A7500 Switch

vlan 10

ip address 10.1.10.1/24

 

vlan 20

ip address 10.1.20.1/24

 

vlan 254------------Mgmt VLAN

ip address 10.1.254.1/24

 

Now, on my 5800 switches acting as a edge switch and connected to A7500, All I want to configure vlan 20 for the users, pointing to 10.1.20.1/24 as a gateway for inter vlan routing.

 

In cisco world, any layer II switches, you can create one vlan interface for remote managment and then configure a default-gateway pointing to your core switch so any host connected to edge switch can ping other vlans as well, but I can't get the configuration to work with A5800 switch.

 

between the trunk ports, I have allowed vlan 10,20,254 between 7500 and 5800s.  I configure one of the 5800 switch ports into vlan 20 and connected my laptop to that port. I assigned IP address 10.1.20.100/24

to  my laptop, but can't ping the 7500s other vlan intefaces.

 

Thanks

Re: 5800 Switch

did you put 10.1.20.1 as default gw? The 5800 will work as a layer 2 switch exactly the way you describe you have done with Cisco earlier. Show us some relevant config if you want, that will probably help.

Re: 5800 Switch

Well, I will check again and attach the config.

 

Basically, I like to have 3 vlans assigned as a test to my layer II 5800 switch such as 

 

Vlan-10 for u

Vlan-20 for servers

vlan 254 for mgmt.

 

I will configure those vlans on my trunk ports connected to 7500 switch.  The 7500 will have all these vlans configured as well with the inter vlan interfaces as follows:

 

inteface vlan 10

ip address 10.1.10.1/24

 

interface vlan 20

ip address 10.1.20.1/24

 

interface vlan 254

ip address 10.1.254.1/24

 

on 5800 for the management purpose, I will also configure the following vlan interface

 

interface vlan 254

ip address 10.1.254.2/24

 

In Cisco world, you would basically configure ip default gateway 10.1.254.1 and then any device connected to layer II switch in its appropriate vlan will be able to ping each other.  

 

In HP 5800, I will configure "IP route-static 10.1.254.0 255.255.255.0 10.1.254.1

 

HTH,

 

Please advise!

Yes, and I see no problem with this, it will work exactly like you want it to.
