I'm trying to depreciate usage of VLAN 1 on my ProCurve switches; 1 is unused. I understand that VLAN 1 must exist, but I want to remove it from all ports, especially trunks between switches.
The problem I have is that stacking does not seem to work without VLAN 1.
I have changed the primary VLAN and management VLAN on all the switches:
(config)# primary-vlan 42 (config)# management-vlan 42 (config)# no vlan 1 untagged 25
Port 25 is the link between the 2 switches I'm testing with; the stack master and a member switch; I only want tagged traffic between the switches, no untagged frames.
show stacking on the master shows all members as "UP" but I can not telnet any of them:
Telnet failed: Connection timed out.
All switches have manually assigned (static) IP addresses on VLAN 42, and all exist in the same /25 subnet, as does my desktop. I can telnet the switches directly from my desktop to the individual switch IP addresses, just not from the master switch.
Do I need to reboot the switches to have the primary-vlan change take effect? Or is there something else I'm missing?
