  • 1.  Static management IP for 2530

    Posted Dec 04, 2019 02:04 PM

    Hi!

     

    I have a 2530 switch in which I need to use VLAN 1 (primary VLAN) to sync with external NTP (Google's) and to connect with Central in the future.

     

    However, it seems it is mandatory to have a DHCP IP address for the VLAN interface in the primary VLAN in order to have a default IP route to get into Internet:

     

    HP-2530-48G-PoEP(vlan-1)# sh ip route

    IP Route Entries

    Destination Gateway VLAN Type Sub-Type Metric Dist.
    ------------------ --------------- ---- --------- ---------- ---------- -----
    0.0.0.0/0 172.19.17.253 1 static 250 1
    127.0.0.0/8 reject static 0 0
    127.0.0.1/32 connected 1 0
    172.19.17.0/24 DEFAULT_VLAN 1 connected 1 0

    HP-2530-48G-PoEP(vlan-1)#

     

    The problem that I see is that I need a static IP address within this same VLAN for local management, apparently seconday IP addresses cannot be configured in this model nor I can configure loopback interfaces.

     

    Is there any other way to accomplish this need for a fixed management IP?

     

    Thanks in advance.

    Why?

     

    You should be able to set assign a IP Address to Default VLAN interface and add a default gateway to your next hop for Internet access. I don't see any mandatory requirement to have IP Address of Default VLAN interface assigned by a DHCP Server to manage a default gateway...something like:

     

    Aruba-2530# configure
    Aruba-2530(config)# vlan 1
    Aruba-2530(vlan-1)# ip address a.b.c.d e.f.g.h
    Aruba-2530(vlan-1)# exit
    Aruba-2530(config)# ip default-gateway i.l.m.n

    Yes, you're right.

     

    The network where I set up this switch had a strict DHCP policy, but they had to take out an IP address for the management of this switch since there was not another way to do it.

     

    Once I had it I configured it just exactly as you said.
