Procurve 2610 Vlans + Stacking

Hi All,

I have 3x Procurve 24 port 2610-pwr and 1x 48 port 2610-pwr switches that I need to stack.

I have multiple vlans and was hoping someone could help me get the stacking working.

I need to have all the other switches as members of the stack and able to communicate with all other vlans (this works on the master switch at the moment).

I have attached the config I have on the master at the moment.

how do I get multiple vlans working ov er the stack?

interface 1
   name "Router"
   speed-duplex 100-full
   no power
ip default-gateway
ip routing
snmp-server community "public" Unrestricted
vlan 1
   name "Data"
   untagged 1,7-15,25-28
   ip address
   no untagged 2-6,16-24
vlan 2
   name "Clients"
   untagged 16-24
   ip address
   tagged 1
vlan 3
   name "Voice"
   untagged 2-6
   ip address
   tagged 1
   ip igmp

    Stacking is a feature that allows you to manage several switches, up to 16, with a single IP address.

    The only VLAN consideration is that all the switchs must have the same 'Default' VLAN ID connected to be part of the stack.

    Is stack really what you need ? Don't have you 4 IP address free ? What about a dedicated managment VLAN ?

    Stacking on these HP switches is not like some other vendors where they basically join the backplanes of multiple units with external cables on the back of each unit.

    Doh! Clearly I had too much on my mind....

    The tagged and untagged confused me until I worked out the cisco equiv....anyway. all sorted.

    Im sharing the love in points.
