Procurve 3500 backup route

Hi every one ! I'm new on the HP Procurve, and i've to configure one 3500 (with licence) The switch is my gateway. What i'm trying to do is to configure two routes. One for my primary connexion, one for the backup. I'd like my switch can "switch" automatycally from one route to the other, if my primary connexion is down. I can't find the command or the parametre to do it. Is it via the OSPF or somewhere else ? Sorry for my english, Have a nice day,

Re: Procurve 3500 backup route

Hi,

 

No problem about your english...  probably my english level is worse  :)

 

I'm take 2 years working with HP Procurve, essentially with 5406zl, and the problem that you raise in my work it was solved by the VRRP Protocol an doing a LACP trunk between both switches.

 

For example, this is my conf:

 

Switch (1) LEAD

 

vlan 176
   name "Vlan Servers"
   untagged A1-A7,A12-A13,A18-A22,A24,D6,D8,D14-D15,D19-D20,Trk9
   ip address 10.128.176.8 255.255.255.0
   tagged B16,Trk1-Trk5
   exit

vlan 180
   name "PCs"
   untagged B1-B24,C1-C12,D1,D3-D5,D7,D12-D13,D17
   ip address 10.128.180.8 255.255.252.0
   tagged A18,D15,Trk1-Trk5

trunk C18-C19 Trk1 LACP

 

interface Trk1
   unknown-vlans Block
exit

 

router vrrp

vlan 176
   vrrp vrid 176
      owner
      virtual-ip-address 10.128.176.8 255.255.255.0
      priority 255
      enable
      exit
   exit
vlan 180
   vrrp vrid 180
      owner
      virtual-ip-address 10.128.180.8 255.255.252.0
      priority 255
      enable
      exit
   exit

 

Switch (2) BACKUP

 

vlan 176
   name "Vlan Servers"
   untagged A1-A7,A11-A13,A18-A22,A24,C10,C14,D8,D14,D17,D19-D20,E2,E20
   ip address 10.128.176.9 255.255.255.0
   tagged C21-C24,D1-D4,Trk1
   exit
vlan 180
   name "PCs"
   untagged B1-B24,C1-C3,C5-C8,C11-C13,C15,C17,D6-D7,D9-D13,E24
   ip address 10.128.180.9 255.255.252.0
   tagged A11,A20,C14,C21-C24,D1-D4,D14-D16,E20,Trk1
   exit

 

trunk C18-C19 Trk1 LACP

 

router vrrp

vlan 176
   vrrp vrid 176
      backup
      virtual-ip-address 10.128.176.8 255.255.255.0
      enable
      exit
   exit
vlan 180
   vrrp vrid 180
      backup
      virtual-ip-address 10.128.180.8 255.255.252.0
      enable
      exit
   exit

 

I don't know if your model (Hp Procurve 3500) support this configuration (VRRP).

 

Anyway check this document about VRRP's Configuration on HP Procurve Switches

 

Above all... GOOD LUCK!!
