I require help setting up 3 x HP Procurve 2610 Switches. In a nutshell I would like to setup 3 VLANs across 3 switches.

Hi Guys

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.

Thanks
Christo

You can do it in web-, menu interface or in CLI.
Telnet to switch or serial, In CLI:
config
vlan 10
untag 1-8
tag 25,26
exit
vlan 20
untag 9-16
tag 25-26
exit
vlan 30
untag 17-24
tag 25-26
exit
write mem
exit

That's what I recommended except the author has to change the vlan #'s and port tagging #'s depending on what he wants to use.

jburgaard's config is what the author requested.

I just wanted to give an idea so that the author understands the concept for the future as well.

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

Thanks guys. Much appreciated. I am unable to test the config, as the switches are in production but both the website and the syntax provided makes sense. I have awarded Iframus the preferred answer because the link provides a more detailed solution.

Infamus, unfortunately with your more detailed solution I now have another question. Why would one create a trunk between two switches like they have in scenario 3 of your link? Is that simply to share the load across more than one link and/or to setup spanning tree protocol for redundancy?

Thanks

To share the load and for redundancy.  If you interconnect switches with one cable (uplink), that can be a single point of failure.  By connecting multiple cables trunked together, you have higher bandwidth and it will still pass the traffic if any one of the cable(port) fails.
