Getting DHCP from trunked ports on an HP switch

Hi Everyone,

I am wondering if you could help me out. I am in the middle of setting up a Bonjour Gateway and I need to Tag all of my VLANs on the switchport the gateway is plugged into, but also be able to get DHCP from that switchport as if I was sitting untagged on a specific vlan. I am using an HP switch.

Any ideas, I know how to do this with Cisco and Brocade but not HP

Thanks a ton

So on the switch, you'd do something like this...

vlan 1
 untagged 1-12,25-26
vlan 2
 tagged 1,25-26
vlan 3
 tagged 1,25-26
vlan 4
 tagged 1,25-26

Open in new window


VLAN 1 is the native VLAN for ports 1-12 and 25-26
VLANs 2-4 are tagged in ports 1, 25 and 26.

In this example the Bonjour Gateway is connected to port 1, and the switch uplinks are 25 and 26.

In a HP switch you look at it the opposite way to a Cisco switch.  In a Cisco switch you tag VLANs in ports.  In HP switches you tag ports in VLANs.

Make sense?

I think I understand where you are coming from. Let's say that I need the gateway to get DHCP from vlan 100 but the switch is setup to have vlan 1 as the native vlan. The gateway is on port 1. Would you know the syntax to complete this?

Thanks for your help so far!

Ok, which VLAN would the gateway be on, and which VLAN would the DHCP server be on?  Are you saying the gateway is on VLAN 100 and the DHCP server is on VLAN 100?

The native VLAN isn't relevant to DHCP.

Thanks for the comment Craig. Basically I have 23 vlans which all need to be trunked on the same port that the gateway is on. The gateway needs to get DHCP from vlan 172. Right now I have all vlans tagged except 172 and have 172 untagged.

So can the gateway do VLAN tagging?  It's unusual for a gateway to obtain an IP from DHCP.

I think I get what you're doing, but the DHCP bit doesn't really make much sense.

Anyhow, to put the gateway in each VLAN you'd do this...

vlan 2
 tagged 1
vlan 3
 tagged 1
vlan 4
 tagged 1
...
...
vlan 172
 untagged 1

Open in new window

That's probably what you've already got??

Is the DHCP server actually on VLAN 172, or does it just assign addresses on VLAN 172?

Yep you got it Craig,

I have done that and the DHCP server is on the 172 VLAN and I use DHCP relay on all other VLANs to get to the DHCP server that is on 172. I think this document might help out trying to explain what I am trying to do:

http://www.aerohive.com/330000/docs/help/english/documentation/AerohiveBonjourGatewayQuickStart_330079-01.pdf

I am setting up this Aerohive Bonjour Gateway as described here...

I want to thank you again Craig for your help!

Ok get you now... I've used the Aerohive Bonjour Gateway so I know where you're coming from!

The gateway doesn't need to use the DHCP service - it just needs to see the DHCP server.  Although, I'm not 100% convinced that it actually does need to be on the same VLAN as the DHCP server at all.  It just needs an interface on the VLAN where the Bonjour services will be located.

The gateway needs an interface in any VLAN where a Bonjour client or service exists, so it can respond to Bonjour broadcasts.  So, if your gateway's management interface is on VLAN 172 but the clients are on VLAN 20, you'd need an interface on VLAN 20 from the gateway too.  You'd need to add extra VLANs to the vNIC if you're running the gateway on VMWare.

On the HP switch you'd have...

vlan 20
 tagged 1
vlan 172
 untagged 1


On the gateway, VLAN 172 would be the native VLAN, and VLAN 20 would be tagged.

Beautiful!!!! Thanks Craig works like a champ!!!!!! I was on the right track but coming from the Cisco world theory is upside down on the HPs sometimes.

Have a great day!

Haha I'm on my way there... At my new place I need to learn HP and Brocade... Thankfully, they are very similar to each other.
