Aruba 2930f (jl262a) and IP routing

Hi All,


After reviewing a number of posts - i am a little stumped on the assignment of IP to a trk1 group

- the extended site is MPLS back to a data centre

- replacing a old switch at a remote site

- I have created a trunk (TRK1 and only added port1) and tagged the trk1 into the 2x vlan interfaces

- The vlan interfaces have their required physical orts assigned as untagged.

- the IP to be assigned is a non-routable IP  (think 192.168.1.x)

- i have enabled "ip routing" and yet to add the outbound routes to the attached config


My Outcome is to assign a mpls provided IP to the trunk, and have the subnets route out via the trunk. The switch will be opertaing as layer3 and do the intervlan routing.


- if the approach of the trk1 group is incorrect then advise.

- any url links to aruba knownledge base article is welcome


I have attached my config








Re: Aruba 2930f (jl262a) and IP routing

You cannot add an ip adress to a port (routed interface).


You can add an ip adress to a vlan, and tag that vlan to a trunk, like you did.


Couple of questions:

You added physical port 1 to TRK1, is that correct? is port 1 the physical connection to your upstream router? TRK1 should include the physical ports.


I see TRK1 is not using LACP, is that correct?


Is the other site of the TRK1 interface using vlan tagging as well? 


Don't forget to add a default route.
