Enable 802.3ad LACP on HP ProCurve switches

Here’s how to enable dynamic LACP on your ProCurve switch. Note that I’ve only done this on a ProCurve 2510G-48 (J9280A), but the configuration should be similar on most managed ProCurve switches.

In my setup, the ports aren’t in sequence. You may use – to chain ports together (1-10 etc)

Log into your switch with Telnet, and enter the following commands (this is for configuring a 2 port LACP trunk using ports 17 and 20):

2510> config
2510(config)# int 17 disable
2510(config)# int 20 disable
2510(config)# int 17 lacp passive
2510(config)# int 20 lacp passive
2510(config)# int 17 enable
2510(config)# int 20 enable

The status of the ports can be checked with “show lacp”, and will output something like the following if you have a properly configured endpoint device connected:

As far as I know, there is no way to enable LACP through the web-UI.
