VLAN Routing on ProCurve 2900

VLAN Routing on ProCurve 2900

I have set up 2 Vlans: Default for our corp network (172.17.2.x) and iSCSI for our SAN traffic (10.80.2.x). By adding a route on my computer using the route add command, I can see the iSCSI subnet. However, isn't there a way to set the route on the 2900 itself, so that the traffic is "hard-routed" and a user cannot just add a route and gain access to the iSCSI vlan? I cannot find a CLI Command Line reference to this.
Also, I changed the IP of my iSCSI Vlan and the first IP I set ( is still showing in the config. How do I remove it?
Thanks in advance,

Here is my show config:

Re: VLAN Routing on ProCurve 2900


If you had a switch supporting Access Control Lists, you could filter traffic using that.

But with only these two VLANs in your configuration I do not quite see _why_ you have routing enabled if clients in vlan 1 is not supposed to have access to the iSCSI vlan anyhow.

Maybe just turn off ip routing?
- Command: No ip routing

Also, I changed the IP of my iSCSI Vlan and the first IP I set ( is still showing in the config. How do I remove it?
- Command: 2900(config)# no vlan 2 ip address

Hope this helps.

Re: VLAN Routing on ProCurve 2900

We are deploying vmware, so the SAN will be on its own subnet. The management stations will need to be able to traverse between the subnets. So going back to my original question: can you route the IP's on the switches themselves?

I think the 2900's use ACL's, and I will probably utilize that either way...

That command did remove the other IP. Thanks.
