I’m new to Brocade switch configuration settings and hoping I can get some assistance on up linking a Brocade ICX switch to an HP 2920. The Brocade is setup with just the default (VLAN 1).The uplink port on the HP is untagged for VLAN 1. The IP address on the on the Brocade is on the same network as the HP and the the Brocades IP default gateway is the IP address of the 2920. When I connect the two to their assign ports I am unable to ping either switch

Hi, Is the ICX is running L2 Image or L3 Image? Please run a "show version" to determine the image type.....
Example - FCXS07300h - represents L2 image / FCXR07300h - represents the L3 image..... based on the image, the management IP configuration differs.....

This brocade will only be used for layer 2. I have a workstation VLAN that is tagged on the up link on both devices works and when i plug a laptop to an untagged port on the Brocade it gets an IP. The only time I can ping the brocade switch is when I plug the up link from the HP to the out-of-bandwidth manage port, which make since but can I get manage the device without having to utilize the managed port?

Hi, Please try configuring the command "management-vlan" under vlan 1. Also as a best practise, please change the management vlan to a different vlan from vlan 1.
