HP 5920 Configuration Manual: Configuring A Remote Destination Group On The Destination Device

Hide thumbs

When you configure Layer 2 remote port mirroring, follow these guidelines:
For a mirrored packet to successfully arrive at the remote destination device, make sure the VLAN
ID of the mirrored packet is not removed or changed.
Layer 2 remote port mirroring does not support using Layer 2 aggregate interfaces as source ports
or monitor ports.
Do not enable MVRP on the devices or ports that allow the remote probe VLAN to pass through. If
MVRP is enabled, MVRP might register the remote probe VLAN with unexpected ports, resulting in
undesired duplicates. For more information about MVRP, see Layer 2—LAN Switching
Configuration Guide.
HP recommends that you configure the destination device first, then the intermediate devices, and
then the source device.

Configuring a remote destination group on the destination
device
To configure a remote destination group, make the following configurations on the destination device.
Creating a remote destination group
Step
1.
Enter system view.
2.
Create a remote destination
group.
Configuring the monitor port for a remote destination group
You can configure the monitor port for a mirroring group in system view, or assign a port to a mirroring
group as the monitor port in interface view. The two modes have the same results.
When you configure the monitor port for a remote destination group, follow these restrictions and
guidelines:
Do not enable the spanning tree feature on the monitor port.
Use a monitor port only for port mirroring, so the data monitoring device receives and analyzes
only the mirrored traffic.
