How do I configure routing on a HP A5500 Layer 3 Switch

Hi Guys,

I have what some of you might consider a small problem, I have this switch on our network (HP A5500) that is capable of routing traffic, however I have never configured one to do so. Currently it runs a number of port based VLANS and some tagged VLAN's across the fiber interfaces that's about all.

What I need to do now is setup a route between VLAN A (3.3.3.3/24 subnet) to a fiber interface (2.2.2.2/24 subnet) without affecting the current configuration that I have just described.

I have been issued a transit subnet ip address for the fiber interface of 2.2.2.254/24

Then the ip is  14.14.234.0/22
route destination is 2.2.2.1/24

could somebody show me how to do this within the config file?

I am not sure if I understand what you have and what you want.
For now I assume you want to set up static routing. And the next-hop-router is on 2.2.2.1

If so you would let this device do
IP ROUTING
that should let Ip routing happen between all IP-enabled interfaces on the switch.
you should also set up a route or a default route to connect to other network(s).
Could be
IP ROUTE 14.14.234.0  255.255.152.0  2.2.2.1 (to come to just 14.14.234.0 via 2.2.2.1)
IP ROUTE 0.0.0.0  0.0.0.0  2.2.2.1 (to come to ALL unknown networks via 2.2.2.1)

The next hop router/firewall should also have configured route(s) back, like
IP ROUTE 3.3.3.0  255.255.255.0  2.2.2.254

If the asumptions are wrong please provide more info, so the experts can better help

As a matter of fact, this switch is in HP's H3C line of switches, so the exact syntax in system-view would include the term 'route-static' , I do not know if that can be abbreviated ( I only manage HP's procurve-line of switches), so a default route would be like:
IP ROUTE-STATIC 0.0.0.0  0.0.0.0  2.2.2.1
