Connect HP FlexFabric 5700 to Dell PowerConnect 6224

Connect HP FlexFabric 5700 to Dell PowerConnect 6224

I have a brand new HP FlexFabric 5700 I have done some basic configuration so far:

  • Set static IP for the default VLAN
  • Set a username and password with Network Admin rights
  • Set it up so I can connect to the switch via the CLI Console and/or the HTTP Web Interface.

There is an existing Dell PowerConnect 6224 switch that the HP 5700 will get it's network access from. I patched the Dell 6224 to the HP 5700 port 1 but can't connect to the network.

What I need to accomplish:

  1. Get network access to the HP 5700 from the Dell 6224
  2. Pass DHCP through to devices on the HP 5700
  3. After I get items 1 and 2 working I would like to setup a Port 1-2 trunk on the HP 5700 so I can have two connections from the Dell 6224.

I am new to configuring managed switches and any help would be appreciated.
