Cisco Nexus 2XXX vs HP ProCurve.

Hello.

My customer want to connect a HP ProCurve 2920 switch to a Nexus 2XXX using link aggregation.

Can someone suggest how?

Thanks.

Regards.

Andrea

Hi,The 2k ports are designed

Hi,

The 2k ports are designed for end device connectivity e.g servers, workstations, printers, etc.. and not for switch to switch connectivity.  The 2ks need a parent switch (5k, 6k or 7k) and so you can directly connect the HP 2920 to the parent switch instead.
