Identical VLANs across multiple Procurve 2610 Switches through Uplinks
Posted on 2014-01-31
I require help setting up 3 x HP Procurve 2610 Switches. In a nutshell I would like to setup 3 VLANs across 3 switches.
Here is the configuration i would like to achieve.
Switch01 (26 Ports)
Switch02 (26 Ports)
Switch03 (26 Ports)
On Switch01, Switch02, Switch03 i want to setup ports 1-8 as VLAN10 (on all three switches), 9 - 16 as VLAN20 (on all three switches) and port 17 - 24 as VLAN30 (on all 3 switches)
NOTE: I realise with the split of ports i might as well do one switch as VLAN10 and the next as VLAN20 and the 3rd switch as VLAN30, but that is not the point :)
What i would like to do is then use SWITCH01 port 26 to uplink to SWITCH02 port 25. Then SWITCH02 port 26 to uplink to SWITCH03 port 25. The uplink ports must carry all the various VLANs. That way if one VLAN grows to more than 24 ports i can use ports on another switch.
Please can someone please assist me with the configuration steps to follow.
