Configuring trunking on HP Switches
I've got three HP 4208 Procurve switches on my network. One switch serves the south side of the school, the other the north with a switch in the middle where all the servers are located.
Each switch is connected by two core fibre:
SWITCH (North)-------------IT Suites (North)
SWITCH (Server Room)------Servers
SWITCH (South)-------------IT Suites (South)
However, there is four core fibre in place to each switch cabinet.
How difficult is it to configure trunking to utilise these redundant lines? I realise that you can't just plug the second core straight into the switch because of a loopback.

Telnet to the CLI, type 'menu'.
Switch Configuration --> Port/Trunk Settings
Set the 'Group' on the ports necessary to the same trunk. Save the changes, plug in your extra fibre.

Sounds dead simple! Thanks very much.

Here's the port trunking chapter of the manual for your 4200vl series Procurve, if you need to go in more detail.
