NOTE: The panel lists port ranges only for the slots that contain an active module. In addition, only the
ranges that are valid for the module are listed.
The port ranges listed by the panel contain four ports, but the default number of ports in a group is two. If you
select a group and leave the number of ports in a group at two, the software assigns the first two ports in the
group you select to the trunk group. The last two ports do not become members of the trunk group.
Select a port range (for example, 5 – 8). On Chassis devices, the port numbers include the slot numbers. For
example, you can select 1/5 – 1/8.
Select the number of ports you want to use in the trunk group. You can select 2 or 4.
Click in the checkbox next to Server to place a checkmark in the box if the other end of the trunk group is a
server. If the other end of the connection is an HP switch or routing switch, do not click this checkbox.
Click Apply to save the changes to the device's running-config file.
Select the Save link at the bottom of the dialog. Select Yes when prompted to save the configuration change
to the startup-config file on the device's flash memory.
Click on the plus sign next to Command in the tree view to list the command options.
Select the Reload link and select Yes when the Web management interface asks you whether you really want
to reload the software.
10. If the other end of the trunk group is a switch or routing switch, log in to the other device and follow the steps
