Currently I use a HP Procurve 2610,
other switches might be possilbe
I have a VLAN-Trunk with more than 256 VLANs
and I did not need the VLAN funtionallity of the Switch.
Is it possilbe to deaktive VLAN-funktionallity
to simple forwarding the VLAN-Trunk?

if you are not using GVRP, then just don't tag the VLANs on the uplink/trunk ports.

On my Testing-Switch I did the following previosly:
<16-2048> Enter an integer number.
HP-3800-48G-4SFP+(config)# max-vlans 2048
-> then reboot
Current VLAN limit exceeds GVRP's allowable 256 limit.
so I think gvrp will not work?!?
Tomorrow I will try to set all ports to untagged.

I cleaned up the vlan config
and set all ports to untagged.
no ip address
no tagged frames pass the switch!
any further ideas?

If you only have a single (untagged) VLAN, then the switch will only process untagged packets. If you want it to process tagged packets, you will need to tag them on the trunk port.
