GVRP Configuration issue on Aruba S2500-24P switch

  • 1.  GVRP Configuration issue on Aruba S2500-24P switch

    Posted Sep 19, 2013 09:23 AM

    We are working on Aruba switch and wants to Maintain VLAN Consistency across the networked environment, as per my understanding VTP is a cisco proprietary protocol and hence does not supported by Aruba.

     

    Instead of VTP Aruba is using GVRP. I am unable to find GVRP command in my switch. I would really appreciate if you can help me to configure it. Thanks

     

    Below are the switch information you might request

     

    Model:                 ArubaS2500-24P

    Serial No:            BY0001123

    The MAS product line does indeed support GVRP.

     

    Enable GVRP Globally

    (S2500)(config)# gvrp
    (S2500)(Global GVRP configuration)# enable
    (S2500)(Global GVRP configuration)# join-time <milliseconds>

     

    Create an interface GVRP profile

    (S2500)(config)# interface-profile gvrp-profile Enable-GVRP
    (S2500)(Interface GVRP profile “Enable-GVRP”)# enable
    (S2500)(Interface GVRP profile “Enable-GVRP”)# registrar-mode normal

     

    Attach the profile to an interface or interface-group

    (S2500) (config) # interface gigiabitethernet 0/0/10
    (S2500) (gigabitethernet "0/0/10") # gvrp-profile gvrp

     

     

    Some verification commands

     

    show gvrp-global-profile

     

     show gvrp interfaces

    I believe GVRP support was added in 7.2.x to complement the Instant AP integration.

    Download the image from support.arubanetworks.com

     

    mas-7222-support.PNG

     

     

    Then you have two options:

     

    1) Upload through the web GUI


    Go to Maintenance > Image Management and look to see which parition is "default boot".

     

    Then upload the new image to the other partition using the "local file" option.

    2) Via SCP or TFTP server

     

    - Copy the image to the server

    - From the CLI issue, show image version. This will tell you which image is active (default boot).

       - For SCP: copy scp: <server ip> <username> <filename> system: partition <opposite partition number>

       - For TFTP: copy tftp: <server ip> <filename> system: partition <opposite partition number>

    - write mem

    - reload

    Dear Cappalli,

     

    Like in VTP we can have Client , Server & Transparent mode. How can we make one client one server and one switch in transparent mode. Any suggestions.

    I don't think there is an equivalent with GVRP. The switches negotiate the VLAN trunks with their neighbors.

    Thank you for your support, I have upgraded the firmware and now I am able to see GVRP command. Can you please clarify like in VTP we create client, server and transparent. I am using 3 switches One I want to create a server and other two client and transparent. How can I do that? A basic sample I’ve seen in User manual can you send me the list of commands I have to apply on each . 

     

    In addition to above.Can you please also clarify

     

    Q:1:: 1Cisco switch and 3 Aruba switch and we need to maintain VLAN consistency across the network How we will do it, e.g If cisco is acting as a VTP Server mode.

     

    Q:2: : How we have to configure Aruba switch if we want to make cisco switches client and other aruba switch also a client.
