I am currently in the situation of needing to monitor several ports on a Aruba 2530-24G simultaneously from several other ports. Those are basically HP devices, right?
A good solution would be a mirroring-group like suggested by HP here. Only is this docu for a HP 5830 device and my switch tells me it does not know the
mirroring-group command as well as the
reflector-port command. Is there any information out there on when HP implemented this functionality into their firmware (knowing 2530 is a somewhat elderly device) and if there are differences in the firmwares between HP and Aruba stopping me from using HP functionality?
Also, does anybody have any other solution to my problem? Goals exactly:
- 3 ports to be monitored (both directions). Cannot be wrapped into the same vlan.
- 3 analyzers to be served with the monitored traffic. May be wrapped into a new vlan as demonstrated by HP (see up).
