VLAN with 3500XL swtiches

Hi,

We have several 3524XL switches, and one 3508XL, and I want to do a very simple thing, but it doesn't work.

I define two ports (from different switches) on a different VLAN (2) than the default (1).

But there's no communication between the two ports, the two stations could'nt ping each other.

Have you any suggestion (I'm not very familiar with VLAN configuration...)

TIA

Stephane

Can you give us some more information regarding how the 3524's are connected to the 3508. Is it a hug-and-spoke sort of connections with the 3508 as the hub connected to the 3524's?. If this is the case you need to ensure the GigabitEthernet links are configured as VLAN trunks:

interface GigabitEthernet 0/1

switchport mode trunk

switchport trunk encapsulation dot1q

You need to also make sure the vlans exist - on the 3500XL you have to do this from the vlan database

switch#vlan database

switch(vlan)#vlan 2

What mode of VTP is configured? I would recommend transparent and administering vlans individually on each switch - your choice though.
