Question: How to config GVRP on Aruba Switches?

 

Below is the place where you can enable or disable GVRP Functionality.
 
Note: You can enable GVRP only on trunk ports
 
Enabling and Configuring GVRP Functionality:
===================================
 
To enable GVRP in the Mobility Access Switch, you must configure the following two profiles and attach them to a trunk port:
 
1)            gvrp                       ß To enable GVRP globally.
2)            gvrp-profile           ß To enable GVRP on an interface.
 
You can use the following CLI commands to define the GVRP global profile settings.
•             (host)(config)# gvrp
•             (host)(Global GVRP configuration)# enable
•             (host)(Global GVRP configuration)# join-time <milliseconds>
 
The join period timer controls the interval between the transmit PDU events that are applied to the applicant state machine. Default is 200 milliseconds.
•             (host)(Global GVRP configuration)# leave-time <milliseconds>
 
The leave period timer controls the period of time that the registrar state machine waits in the leaving state before transmitting to the empty state. Default is 600 milliseconds.
•             (host)(Global GVRP configuration)# leave-all-time <milliseconds>
 
The leave all period timer controls the frequency with which the leave all state machine generates Leave All PDUs. Default is 10000 milliseconds. You can use the following CLI commands to define the interface specific gvrp-profile:
•             (host)(config)# interface-profile gvrp-profile <profile_name>
•             (host)(Interface GVRP profile <profile_name)# registrar-mode [normal|forbidden]
 
In normal registrar mode, the Mobility Access Switch registers and de-registers VLANs to or from its connected switches and IAPs. In forbidden registrar mode, the Mobility Access Switch cannot register nor de-register VLANs to or from its connected switches and IAPs.
 
Default is registrar-mode normal.
 
 
Example configuration:
==================
 
To enable and configure GVRP globally:
•     (host)(config)# gvrp
•     (host)(Global GVRP configuration)# enable
•     (host)(Global GVRP configuration)# join-time 200
•     (host)(Global GVRP configuration)# leave-time 600
•     (host)(Global GVRP configuration)# leave-all-time 10000
 
To enable and configure GVRP profile on an interface:
•     (host)(config)# interface-profile gvrp-profile Enable-GVRP
•     (host)(Interface GVRP profile “Enable-GVRP”)# enable
•     (host)(Interface GVRP profile “Enable-GVRP”)# registrar-mode normal
 
To attach GVRP profile to the interface:
•     (host) (config) # interface gigiabitethernet 0/0/10
•     (host) (gigabitethernet "0/0/10") # gvrp-profile gvrp
 
To check the configuration:
•     (host) (config) #show gvrp-global-profile
•     (host) (config) #show gvrp interfaces
