Hallo Experts,

I´m a newbie with configure HP ProCurve Switches!

We have two 5308xl switch in ouer company, the configuration is:

; J4819A Configuration Editor; Created on release #E.11.03

hostname "mainswitchb1"
snmp-server contact ""
snmp-server location ""
web-management management-url "http://172.17.12.201:8040/rnd/device_help"
cdp run

module 1 type J4821A
module 7 type J4820A
module 3 type J4820A
module 4 type J4820A
module 5 type J4820A
module 2 type J4878A

ip route 192.0.1.0 255.255.255.0 172.17.13.10
ip route 192.0.2.0 255.255.255.0 172.17.13.10
ip route 192.0.4.0 255.255.255.0 172.17.13.10
ip route 192.168.101.0 255.255.255.0 172.17.13.10
ip route 192.168.102.0 255.255.255.0 172.17.13.10
ip route 0.0.0.0 0.0.0.0 172.17.12.12
spanning-tree
password manager
password operator



In the Network there is a second router with the ip: 172.17.13.32/24 and the clients are in the 172.17.4.0/24 subnet. But I can´t ping the router from the clients. Only when I give them an second ip from the 172.17.13.0 subnet.

Perhaps you know a started guide to configure the hp switch? or is it to difficult?

thanks for the help!

best regard, wolfgang

What you've done is not particually the way it's supposed to be done.....

If you paste these commands in:
no ip routing
no ip route 0.0.0.0 0.0.0.0 172.17.12.12
no xrrp
vlan 1
   no ip address 172.17.1.1 255.255.255.0
   no ip address 172.17.12.1 255.255.255.0
   no ip address 172.17.13.1 255.255.255.0
   no ip address 172.17.14.1 255.255.255.0
   no ip address 172.17.15.1 255.255.255.0
   no ip address 172.17.16.1 255.255.255.0
   exit
ip routing

-------------------------

That should clear up all the clutter in your switch's config.
The idea is, you have a different subnet/network for each vlan, and the switch will route between VLANs, as a rule of thumb you're not supposed to have multiple networks on the same "VLAN".

If you want another network, maybe isolate it to one of your modules:

vlan 20
 name "Sales"
 untagged G1-G24
 ip address 192.168.250.1/24

This will remove VLAN 1 from the last modules ports, and put them in their own network (192.168.250.0/24 network).

------------------------

If you have a default router of 172.16.12.12, make a VLAN for that network, then plug it in to a port on the switch like this:

vlan 12
 name "Gateway"
 untagged E1
 ip address 172.16.12.1/24

Then plug your router in to port E1, the switch will now forward internet bound packets to the router.

NOTE: Your router must know of how to get "back" to your switches other networks, you might have to add routes to the [172.17.4.0/24 via 172.16.12.1] etc... in the router.

-----------------------------

There's some config examples you can read here:

http://www.hp.com/rnd/support/config_examples/5300xl.htm

The first document explains how to route between VLANs (Which is exactly what you need to read).
