    Hi All,

    Can someone help me? I am new to HPE/Aruba switches and need to know some shortcuts :)

    So how can I tell there is a trunk between my 1 gig and ten gig switches? All are HPE/Aruba. Last time I was at Data Center, I saw almost all ports are populated.

    There is a "sync or stacking" cable between two 10g switches (Labeled DMZ), and 4 more 10g (labeled DB). What is the cable actually called?

    There are six 1 Gig switches and there is a sync/stacking cable between one group of three (DMZ) and the other group three (DB).

    How can I confirm they are connected to each other without being onsite? I have remote access and have been using the web interface. Can you please tell me an easy way from the cli how to validate I have a trunk between 10g and 1g switches that are carrying the same vlans?

    I have six of these. 

    HPE FF 5700-32XGT-8XG-2QSFP+ Switch JG898A

    and 6 of these

    HP A5500-24G-4SFP HI 

    Thanks for your help!

    Hi Jerry! you should post your doubts/requests/issues on the Airheads Wired Intelligent Edge sub-forum otherwise you're at risk that your post get unnoticed here in this part of the forum (don't ask me why).
