Trunk port configuration between Two HP Procurve Switch

Hello Guys,

I need small help wth trunk port and i am not understadning what i am duong wrong. So i have situation, I have created a New VLAN on the HP switch and then on existing working Trunk Port which is connected to the Other HP switch i have also Tagged the Newly Created VLAN so  i have possibility to get the New VLAN information on the Second switch.

then I have created the Same VLAN with SAME vlaN NAME and ID on the second switch and when i tried to assign the IP Through New Swtich i can not Ping the Default gateway of the newly Created VLAN,

but everything is working fine with First switch where i have created the newly created VLAN,

Re: Trunk port configuration between Two HP Procurve Switch

Do a "show running-config" and show us the configuration for the new VLAN on both switches. For example

vlan 10
   name "CLIENTS"
   untagged 1-23
   tagged 24
   exit

Re: Trunk port configuration between Two HP Procurve Switch

Hello ,

 

Main Switch (01 )

vlan 240
   name "MONITORING"
   untagged C10
   tagged B23-B24,H9-H10
   exit

2nd Switch

vlan 240
   name "MONITORING"
   untagged D13
   tagged B23-B24,D20
   exit

Port B23-B24 are the Uplinks,

B23 is the trunk between both switches which needs to be configured.

Port H9-H10 are the Uplinks to the Firewall which does the routing,

New Vlan on the Switch one works fine but not from the switch 2

 

thank you for the help.

Re: Trunk port configuration between Two HP Procurve Switch

This looks fine to me. If you connect a client to port C10 on the main switch it can ping default gateway (firewall?), but if you connect the same client to port D13 on the 2nd switch you cannot ping?

Yes @TerjeAFK, exactly this is the Problem i am facing.

Re: Trunk port configuration between Two HP Procurve Switch

Does the client receive a DHCP address in this VLAN, or are you using a static IP address for testing?

What if you try to create a L3 interface for this VLAN on the 2nd switch, ie. set a static IP address in VLAN 240? Can you ping the default gateway from the switch? For example:

vlan 240
   ip address 192.168.240.254 255.255.255.0
   exit
ping source 192.168.240.254 192.168.240.1

Re: Trunk port configuration between Two HP Procurve Switch

hello @TerjeAFK,

There is no DHCP Configuration at the moment and i am setting the static IP for it.

and Yes, I can try to set the Static IP for the Vlan and check it.

 

 IP Routing : Disabled

 Default Gateway : 10.30.5.1
 Default TTL     : 64
 Arp Age         : 20



     VLAN       IP Config     IP Address       Subnet Mask
 ------------ + ----------  ---------------  ---------------

 MONITORING   | Manual      10.30.15.10      255.255.255.0

Actions->   Cancel     Edit     Save     Help

dit the fields displayed above.
se arrow keys to change action selection and <Enter> to execute action.

I assume you want me to do this ?

Re: Trunk port configuration between Two HP Procurve Switch

Yes. Just make sure you use the source option when you ping from the switch CLI, otherwise the ping will go through the switch default gateway.

Re: Trunk port configuration between Two HP Procurve Switch

What switch model and software version is your 2nd switch? My example was from a 2530 switch running YA.16.03.0003 and it has the option to specify a source vlan or IP address

2530-SWITCH# ping ?
 data-fill             Specify the data pattern to send.
 data-size             Specify the ping data size.
 HOST-NAME-STR         The hostname to ping.
 interval              Specify the interval between pings in seconds.
 IP-ADDR               The IPv4 address to ping.
 repetitions           Ping the device multiple times.
 source                Specify the ping source.
 timeout               Specify the ping timeout in seconds.

Re: Trunk port configuration between Two HP Procurve Switch

Also do a "show running-config interface D13" on the 2nd switch to see if there is any config that may affect the traffic, like port security.

Re: Trunk port configuration between Two HP Procurve Switch

That is old hardware. I see HP has released version L.11.46 for this switch. Is there any chance you can upgrade the switch software and see if this fixes the problem?

Re: Trunk port configuration between Two HP Procurve Switch

Yes , I can upgrade the Switch version if this will not affect the current running Process. my other switch is as well Version L.11.40 and if i upgrade the version of one switch and doesnt to the 1st one will it affect any thing ?

 

and can you please direct me help me about the upgrade process.

Re: Trunk port configuration between Two HP Procurve Switch

You need to reboot the switch after upgrading it, so there will be some downtime for connected equipment. You can upgrade your two 4204 switches one at a time, there is no requirement for them to run the exact same software version.

The software can be downloaded here:

https://h10145.www1.hpe.com/Downloads/DownloadSoftware.aspx?SoftwareReleaseUId=17556&ProductNumber=J8770A&lang=en&cc=us&prodSeriesId=1827689&SaidNumber=

If you use any kind of switch management system (PCM or IMC) then the update can be done from there. Otherwise you can use a TFTP server.

1. Download the software to the TFTP server and unpack it.

2. Copy the current software to the secondary boot image just in case something goes wrong

 copy flash flash secondary

2. Copy the software from the TFTP server to the switch:

 copy tftp flash x.x.x.x L.11.46.swi primary       x.x.x.x is the TFTP server

3. Reboot the switch

The commands must be run from the switch CLI.
