5308xl won't route

Received 5308xl and am trying to just set up a basic vlan/ip routing config on it. However, it doesn't add these intraswitch vlans to the routing tables even though they are defined on the switch itself. What am I missing? Here's the config and output from show ip route command:

; J4819A Configuration Editor; Created on release #E.10.27

hostname "HP ProCurve Switch 5308xl"
module 1 type J4907A
module 6 type J4852A
module 8 type J4852A
module 3 type J4907A
module 5 type J4907A

Re: 5308xl won't route

The routes won't be created in the table until you have physically connected some ports in those VLANs. For your example, ports A1, A15 and A15 at minimum need to have a link - this in turn brings up the VLAN interface and then the routes are created automatically.
