Just noticed that GVRP does not seem to be available on the 5920 (CMW710-R2208P01). Does anyone know whether this is the case, or is there a GVRP compatible/equivalent protocol that I'm missing.
Solved! Go to Solution.

I got an early firmware for the 5900 in October, and MVRP is included. I ran it on a network with GVRP, and it worked exactly as expected! There is a GVRP backward compatible mode, although MVRP seemed to work OK before I discovered that. Some sample config below (I forgot to keep any sample output, sorry).
# mvrp global enable mvrp gvrp-compliance enable # # interface Bridge-Aggregation1 description Link to Core port link-type trunk port trunk permit vlan all port trunk pvid vlan 930 mvrp enable #
I like using the "forbid" statements in ProCurve (example below), but I'm not sure if there is an equivalent in the Comware OS. It is handy for preventing propagation of VLANs out specific ports/aggregation groups.
vlan 3128 name "Site 128" tagged E1-E2 forbid D23,F1,Trk1-Trk4 exit
You can also use the learn/block commands on an interface, but that is not as granular.
interface D23 unknown-vlans block tagged vlan 2101 untagged vlan 930 no snmp-server enable traps link-change spanning-tree root-guard exit switch01(eth-D24)# unknown-vlans ? learn Learn new VLANs. block Ignore new VLANs. disable Ignore all GVRP packets.

a difference between comware and provision is the fact that on comware, the vlan must be in the port trunk permitted vlan list, before it will be announced/accepted by MVRP/GVRP.
So if you want to prevent a vlan from being learned/announced, simpy remove it via
undo port trunk permit vlan 100
And it will not be learned/announced through MVRP.

2105 is the first comware 7 release for 10500, not all protocols were available for this release yet.
1XXX releases are comware5, 2xxx releases are comware7.
So the next update should fix this.
You may want to contact HP support, they should be able to tell you when to expect it,

The 5900 I used is not available, and since somebody else did the upgrade, I don't have the FW files to check the version. The config file says "version 7.1.045, ESS 2305", so it looks like the ones on the support page are not the same as the early access one yet.
Speak to HP support for early access.
