    Good day all
    I have been looking around if this has been ask and answer it seems I can’t find any.

    I have a problem with two extreme switch they can’t ping each other I have confing truck port 48 to connect each other but when I plung my laptop on access port 2 I can ping the switch.



    Please see my configuration below maybe I’m doing wrong please assist.

    Core sw

    create vlan mangr tag 901

    configure vlan mangr add ports 2 untagged

    configure vlan mangr add ports 48 tag

    configure vlan mangr ipaddress 10.248.111.2 255.255.255.0

    enable ipforwarding vlan mangr



    sw1



    create vlan mangr tag 901

    configure mangr add ports 48 tag

    configure mangr add ports 2 untagged

    configure mangr ipaddress 10.248.111.10/24

    enable iproute 10.248.111.2 vr VR-Default

    enable ipforwarding vlan mangr

    configure iproute add 10.248.111.2

    Hello Sivuyile

    From what it looks like this is a straight Layer 2 VLAN. Both switches are on the same IP Subnet.

    When you say they can't ping one another are you doing that from the CLI? If so what is the error you are seeing? Are you pining from the station on the switch?

    When you ping from the CLI you need to put the VR in the ping. So use the command ping vr vr-d 10.248.111.2 and see what happens.

    Thanks

    Hi Sivuyile, Without specifying the VR, the default VR for Ping on CLI is VR-Mgmt (Management VR) via dedicated management port. Best regards,

    Hi Sivuyile,

    I'm considering the diagram and configuration as follows (since the ping is on the same vlan, you don't need to add route or enable ipforwarding. Unless you want to communicate across vlans):



    Core sw
    create vlan mangr tag 901
    configure mangr add ports 48 tag
    configure mangr add ports 2 untagged
    configure mangr ipaddress 10.248.111.2/24

    sw1
    create vlan mangr tag 901
    configure mangr add ports 48 tag
    configure mangr add ports 2 untagged
    configure mangr ipaddress 10.248.111.10/24

    If you can ping from PC to the switch, you should check the uplink status.
    1. show port 48 configuration no-refresh <= Check if the port is up and using correct negotiation parameters
    2. show fdb vlan mangr <= Check if the neighbor MAC address is listed. You can confirm the switch MAC address using the command "show switch"
    Also, please share the switch model and EXOS version.

    if you're using X440G2, you should use "show config"...
    maybe than you can see the problem, when I'm right...

    On X440G2 with XOS21.1.1.4-patch1-2, there is a bug, that prevent port from forwarding pakets...

    Hi Henrique
    first issue was on my pings from the switch to another switch i use this command :ping ping vr "VR-Default" x.x.x.x

    second step I clean up my configuration use the sample configures as follow :

    Core sw
    create vlan mangr tag 901
    configure mangr add ports 48 tag
    configure mangr ipaddress 10.248.111.2/24

    sw1
    create vlan mangr tag 901
    configure mangr add ports 48 tag
    configure mangr ipaddress 10.248.111.10/24

    and both switch where able to ping each other .

    Thanks

    These 3 statements are unnecessary since they are all on the same subnet.
    enable iproute 10.248.111.2 vr VR-Default

    enable ipforwarding vlan mangr

    configure iproute add 10.248.111.2

    I assume you connect port 48 of both switch links as a IEE 802.1Q trunk.

    I would always enable loopback on the vlan on both switches. So that the vlan mangr is always active even when there are no active ports.

    enable loopback-mode vlan mangr

    Then you can try to ping again.

    Hello. I have a similar issue. I have two X690 with version 22.3.1.4 22.3.1.4-patch1-4 conected by a SFP fiber on a 10G port.(also i tried with RJ 45) The port in both side are up ,and i learn MACs of the other side, and i can see information of the other side via CDP and lldp.all right except i cant ping via Vlan1 and VR-default!!
    Also i conect an N7 to one X690 to test. And i can ping it without any problem the X690 and N7, If a put a laptop conected to the X690 i can ping it without problem. The issue is only beetween x690 switchs.
    I have create another VLAN for test different of vlan1
    Sw1
    create vlan TEST1 tag 901
    configure TEST1 add ports 1:46 tag
    configure TEST1 ipaddress 192.168.1.2/24
    Sw2
    create vlan TEST1 tag 901
    configure TEST1 add ports 1:46 tag
    configure TEST1 ipaddress 192.168.1.1/24
    The switch can ping itself but cant ping each other

    ¿Any idea?

    Hi Paul

    That is correct, i was ping from CLI... meaning if Im ping from CLI i must use this command like this ping 10.248.111.2 vr vr-default ??

    Thanks

    The default virtual router for ping is VR-Default, not VR-Mgmt.

    Hi Drew,

    Thank you for your correction. My mistake is thinking that Ping will have same behavior with SSH/Telnet.

    Best regards,

    Hi Wong

    The reason I added configure iproute add 10.248.111.2 on switch 2 I need switch to use core-sw to route out the traffic inside core-sw there is other vlans and IP address

    Thanks

    Hi Henrique

    Thanks for the diagram , Sw1 need to use core-sw to communicate with other vlans. On sw1 I have configure mangr vlan with ip address and configure two vlans without assigning IP address and those vlans to get routing they must use core-sw

    Sw3.5 # ping 10.248.111.2 vr vr-default ^
    %% Invalid input detected at '^' marker.

    Sw3.1 # show version Switch : 800618-00-08 Rev 8.0 BootROM: 1.0.1.7 IMG: 21.1.1.4

    The invalid input comes from the fact that vr must be specified before the IP. Check that your ports 48 are tagged on both sides.
