Verifying the IRF fabric setup
To verify the basic functionality of the IRF fabric after you finish configuring basic IRF settings and
connecting IRF ports:
Log in to the IRF fabric through the console port of any member switch.
Create a Layer 3 interface, assign it an IP address, and make sure the IRF fabric and the remote
network management station can reach each other.
Use Telnet, web, or SNMP to access the IRF fabric from the network management station. (See HP
5820X & 5800 Switch Series Fundamentals Configuration Guide.)
Verify that you can manage all member switches as if they were one node.
Display the running status of the IRF fabric by using the commands in
Table 10 Displaying and maintaining IRF configuration and running status
Display information about the IRF fabric.
Display all members' IRF configurations that take
effect at a reboot.
Display IRF fabric topology information.
To avoid IP address collision and network problems, configure at least one MAD mechanism to detect the
presence of multiple identical IRF fabrics and handle collisions. For more information about MAD, see
5820X & 5800 Switch Series IRF Configuration Guide
