VLAN'ing and Trunking on Procurve 2510-24G switches

Hello,

 

I am installing three 2510-24G switches on a client site and would like assistance on the VLAN'ing and trunking side of things..

 

I wish to create two VLANs ( I believe) one for PC's,servers,printers etc (VLAN10) and one for vMotion traffic (VLAN20) 

 

I need to trunk all three switches together

 

I believe that I specify the ports on each switch that I wish to use for a specific VLAN and can make these untagged as I do not need multiple VLAN traffic passing through a single port i.e. Ports 1 - 16 VLAN10, Ports 17 - 20 VLAN20

 

I need the three switches connected (trunked) so both VLAN10 and VLAN20 traffic can pass over these trunks. I believe I need to create a Trunk group, add VLAN10 and VLAN20 and specify that they are tagged on the port used for trunking?

 

Does the above make sense and will it work, or is there a better method?

 

Am I missing anything?

 

Also, how do you add multiple VLANs to a trunk group?

 

Many thanks for any help/pointers you can give

 

Simon

Hi,

 

If possible I would connect them as a ring network to improve performance so ensure spanning tree is enabled.

 

Create your 3 trunks, trk2,trk3 and trk4 on each switch by adding the respective ports you wish to be part of the trk.

 

Type "trunk 23,24 trk2 lacp"

 

this will trunk port 23,24 together in trk2, do the same on the switch that is going to be connected via this trk. I would use the same ports to to keep it simple.

 

To then add a vlan to the trk do "VLAN 10 Tagged trk2" "VLAN 20 Tagged trk2". do this on both connected switches.

 

Hope this helps

Thats really helpful - Thanks

 

So would the below be correct:

 

Switch1

trunk 23,24 trk2 lacp (this would link to Switch2)

trunk 21,22 trk5 lacp (this would link to switch3)

 

Switch2

trunk 23,24 trk3 lacp

 

Switch3

trunk 23,24 trk4 lacp

 

A total of 8 ports used for interswitch trunking?

 

Thanks again

You need to use the same trk number on all connecting switches and patch in trk2 to trk2, trk3 to trk3 ect...

 

so

 

switch1#

trunk 21,22 trk2 (link to switch 2)

trunk  23,24 trk3 (link to switch 3)

 

switch 2#

trunk 21,22 trk2 (link to switch 1)

 

ect

 

And each switch should connect to both of the other switches

Hello again

 

One last question...

 

We haven't tagged anything from what I can see in those commands. Will the trunk connections pass over both VLAN data from one switch to the other?

 

Thanks

Please scrub last message. You did mention Tagging on a previous post

 

Thanks for all your help on the matter
