Aruba switch in Cisco network

I just got my first Aruba switch to evaluate it as I’m looking at some switch replacements. From the switch side I’ve worked with Cisco for years and it’s what I know better, but some of my network of IT folks have been singing Aruba/procurve praises so I’m doing some testing.

I think I’ve got a handle in tagged/untagged ports vs trunks. In some testing today I set up my vlans to match my existing setup but I found I couldn’t reach any of them unless I set an IP address on that vlan on the Aruba switch. Is this normal? Is there a guide somewhere I could look at to see how to integrate an Aruba switch into a Cisco environment?
