HP GBE2C private vlan

Hi,

I'm trying to set up a distributed vswitch on ESXi hosts, but I need to use the Private VLAN function of my gbe2c switches.

Atm it's not working... Computers in the same VLAN and same PVLAN community don't communicate together.

I think it's a problem with the switch.

My firmware revision is 2.0.50 (FLASH image2).

The last firmware available on HP site is 5.1.3 but in the changelog :

http://h20000.www2.hp.com/bizsupport/TechSupport/SoftwareDescription.jsp?lang=fr&cc=fr&prodTypeId=3709945&prodSeriesId=1845925&swItem=MTX-cb3063d7095543a2bbaffb6472&prodNameId=1845926&swEnvOID=1005&swLang=8&taskId=135&mode=5

Nothing talks about private vlan.

In the official gbe2c documentation private vlan is said to work in future firmware update :

http://www.bladenetwork.net/userfiles/file/PDFs/HP_C_L2-3_Product_Brief.pdf

page 2 :

"Private VLAN Edge provides Layer 2 isolation between the ports within the same broadcast domain, only allowing communication with a given uplink*"

"* Available with optional software release"

Where can I find this "optional software release" ??

Thanks

Re: HP GBE2C private vlan

Solved with a support call :

I need to buy the "Advanced Software" module for my switches :


HP GbE2c Layer 2/3 Ethernet Blade Switch Advanced Functionality Software
NOTE: Provides additional feature functionality such as Hot Links, PVLAN Edge and IGMPv3 Snooping. Purchase of this SW entitles users to three years of additional software upgrades as made available. This option may be purchased at any time.
