Aruba/HP 3810M (JL073A): Assign IP to Interface?

Hello All,

I'm reaching out for a simple configuration question.  I just opened my first 3810M box and have started to configure it.

I'm struggling to figure out how to assign an IP address to an interface.

I'm connecting a trio of switches in a very simple network.

MDF Switch 1:  (172.16.1.1) /16

MDF Switch 2:  (172.16.2.1) /16

MDF Switch 3: (172.16.3.1) /16

Each of those systems have their own set of networks within their sites which should be covered by OSPF.

ip routing

router ospf
area backbone range 10.0.0.0 255.0.0.0 type summary
area backbone range 172.16.0.0 255.255.0.0 type summary
area backbone range 192.168.0.0 255.255.0.0 type summary
enable
exit

With my previous Cisco switches I simply took an interface and performed:

interface GigabitEthernet0/1
description [###]---> Uplink to 172.16.1.1 <---[###]
no switchport
ip address 172.16.2.1 255.255.0.0

How can I assign a interface/port on this 3810M to be a L3 port to accept an IP in order to inter-connect my MDFs?

Or am I headed in the wrong direction to inter-connect the MDFs?

I may have answered by own question... by instead of assigning an ip address directly on the interface...

I set an ip on an unused VLAN, then assigned it "untagged" to the port.  I also went back to simple RIP instead of the OSPF.

Seems to be working... it's been awhile since my Cisco background... this just didn't click with me for some reason.

Hi Pontiac,

Generally speaking the IP address is assigned to the VLAN, and then the interface is a member.

vlan 100
name "internet network segment"
untagged 1/1
ip address 199.99.99.191 255.255.255.192
exit

At least that is the way I know how to do it.  The OOBM is an exception, and you assign the address directly to that one.
