I have a new 1810G-24 with latest firmware P.1.17. I also have an existing 1800-24. I want to use the two together for more network redundancy in front of several VMware host servers at our office. Each VMware server has two or more network interfaces going to my 1800-24, moving forward they will have one or more interfaces going to each of the two switches (1810G & 1800G-24) for switch redundancy. On the 1800G, I have each physical port supporting multiple vlans as ‘members’ to use their terminology. Five vlans to be specific and the default vlan is 1 on all ports. This is needed because within each VMware host node there are six virtual switches each with a specific VLAN, those virtual switches all connect to all of the host’s Ethernet interfaces going to the HP switch. So in Cisco’s world we can that a ‘VLAN trunk’. It only took two minutes to setup the 1800 to work correctly. I have yet to be able to setup the 1810G to handle more than one VLAN per port. What am I missing????

What you're trying to achieve should be fairly straight forward. Could you go through the steps that you've taken already and explain which part appears to not work?
