Is there a way to "TagAll" VLANs on a HP Switch Port as it would be in a Cisco environment (by default on a cisco trunk port all VLANs are allowed, or one can explicilty define "allowed vlans tagall -> which then again is default config and won't show up in the running conf) So far on HP Switches I am only aware of the ability to "vlan x tagged port y". Everytime I created a new vlan on the HP switch I would have to add it tagged to the port if.

Any one know of any options?


  • I think there's no other way than vlan x [un]tagged port y

  • "tagall" is NOT the default on any Cisco switch. The native vlan (aka PVID) is not tagged.

Depending on what version of ProCurve you are running, you should be able to do tagged all and no tagged all to tag every port on the switch to that VLAN, but you will need to do this for each VLAN unfortunately.

  • Do you mean you can add a tagged vlan to all ports? Or all tagged vlans to one port?

  • @Max Unfortunately, you can't tag an interface to every VLAN at once, you must do each VLAN individually, but you can tag every interface to a VLAN by running tagged all. Commented Aug 27, 2014 at 16:49
  • tagged ALL, where ALL refers to all interfaces, not all vlans?

  • @Max Correct, you can use vlan x tag all to tag all interfaces to your vlan, but you can't specify multiple VLANs at once. For instance vlan 1,2,3 tag all is an invalid command. You would have to do vlan 1 tag all, vlan 2 tag all, etc. Commented Aug 28, 2014 at 8:13
