    Hello,
    I would like to link an Aruba 2930F with an HP Procurve 2910
    via four giga ports with port aggregation.
    Could you tell me if the configuration on both switches is like this?

    HP PROCURVE:
    trunk 45-48 trk1 lacp
    vlan 10 tagged trk1

    ARUBA
    trunk 45-48 trk1 lacp
    vlan 10 tagged trk1

    or

    HP PROCURVE:
    trunk 45-48 trk1 trunk
    vlan 10 tagged trk1

    ARUBA
    trunk 45-48 trk1 trunk
    vlan 10 tagged trk1

    Is any more command needed?

    Thank you very much.

    Hi Nacho, go with the first set of commands, those ones will configure one 4-ports "Port Trunking" (Links Aggregation) per side, using LACP. A good solution.

    Start with all involved physical interfaces in disabled state and then, once you have all four cables connected on both ends, enable a physical interface at time (on both side)...you should see the Port Trunk (on both side) transitioning to active and well formed (generally this is not necessary once both Trk<x> are formed but initially it will be a best practice to see if and how the Spanning Tree kicks in and recognize the Trk<x> logical interfaces on both ends).

    Check VLAN(s) membership (on both ends) with the CLI command: show vlan port ethernet Trk<x> detail to see what VLAN(s) the Trk logical interface is member of (given your example you're passing the VLAN 10 tagged and, probably, the VLAN 1 untagged as per default configuration...I mean...if not expressly removed from Trk<x> interfaces).
