I have a A5120-48G_El_switch switch that i would like to connect with our cisco layer 3 switch, however i am not so familiar with thisswitch. The connection i would like to do is use the port-channel in cisco port connected to the HP switch port using the equivalent port-channel equivalent.
Can anyone help me on the command i will use with hp so it can be recognized by cisco using port-channel on both ends?

Config extract from a 5820 IRF pair below. (Looks like it is missing the PVID/native VLAN statement). This will create an LACP aggregated link.
interface Bridge-Aggregation6 description Link to Cisco port link-type trunk port trunk permit vlan all link-aggregation mode dynamic interface GigabitEthernet1/0/15 port link-mode bridge port link-type trunk port trunk permit vlan all port link-aggregation group 6 interface GigabitEthernet2/0/15 port link-mode bridge port link-type trunk port trunk permit vlan all port link-aggregation group 6
Don't just type the commands in though; order is important!
- Create the bridge aggregation (bagg) (int br 6)
- name it and set mode dynamic (this may be optional, but it keeps it consistent with the ProCurve connections)
- Go to each interface and add the aggrgation group (port link-aggregation group 6)
- Go back to the bagg and type the rest of the setup commands in - these will be automatically applied to the 2 interfaces in the bagg.
