I've got one Cisco Catalyst 2960G-48TC-L switch (SW1) and two Hewlett Packard Procurve 2810-48 switches (SW2 and SW3). I want to split the 3 switches into 2 VLAN's. On each switch the configuration of the VLAN's would be the same : Port 1-24 = VLAN1 and Port 25-46 = VLAN2. Port 47 and 48 on each switch is used to connect to the other switches, so that each switch is directly connected to the other two. In other words, if SW2 loses it's power, then SW1 and SW3 won't be affected.
On the Procurve switches i can get it working with the config snippet i posted below. If both use that configuration, then the VLAN's seem to work on both switches, and VLAN2 on one switch works with VLAN2 on the other switch. My problem is that i can't seem to figure out how to get the Cisco in on the action. I know Cisco and Hewlett Packard both use their own VLAN implementations, but I'm certain that they should be able to work together. The Cisco uses IOS 12.2.25
Can anyone help me out on this ?
