Help to move HP config to CISCO

Hi Experts,

now I have a HP switch running -> ProCurve Switch 2510G-48 -> J9280A
We have bought a new switch from CISCO and I have to move the config or create a new config.
The new Switch is -> CISCO 2960-S-48

The basic setup is done and now I need some help with the rest of commands.
Can you assist me here ?

Is the HP just a flat switch or does it have VLAN tagging on it?
Can you post the config to see what needs to be setup on the 2960?

Yes the HP switch has vlan tagging.

Some ports are tagged -> is this in cisco a trunk port ?

Is port 45 an uplink to another Switch?
0
James HIT DirectorCommented:
I would avoid using VLAN 1, just not recommended.
Creating the other VLAN's are simple enough:

switch# conf t
switch(config)# int vlan (number) <-- no parenthesis. ex. int vlan 953
desc LWL-LAN

This will create the VLAN's in the switch database. Repeat for each VLAN.

Now, it does look like port 45 in an uplink, where does that go?

For each port, from the config prompt:

interface gi1/0/38 (example)
switchport mode access
switchport access vlan 20 (as per your HP switch, port 20 seems to be a VOIP port).
spanning-tree portfast  **Optional but I would add it for safety

to save, either type exit or hit ctrl + z and then type wr mem

yes this port 45 is a link with a fibre cable to another smaller switch.

this port 45 is it a trunk port in cisco,
You see in HP it is a tagged port but not for each vlan.

When I have 4 vlans and a tagged port over 3 vlans, is is a trunk in cisco ?
0
Eprs_AdminSystem ArchitectAuthor Commented:
I used this command in cisco to allow just 3 vlans over the trunk

switchport trunk allow vlan 1,20,953

Right ?

Hi,

this command is not working on my Cisco switch :

switchport trunk encap dot1q

Do you know why ?

Eprs_AdminSystem ArchitectAuthor Commented:

But the password is written in plain text in the config. How do I change it ?
