Many enterprises use multi-vendor switching environment and it takes quite an effort for network administrators to configure and manage different vendor devices. In fact incompatibility of protocols also become quite a headache.
Considering the above, this article gives assistance in configuring trunk between HP Switch and Cisco Switch.
A sample scenario has been created as per below diagram –
As shown above, Cisco Switch is working as Layer 3 Gateway for 2 VLANs (Admin and HR VLAN).HP switches are working as Layer 2 edge switches.
Table below will be referred to while configuring VLAN Trunk to the devices –
