    I Have many hosts on switch x460, and L3 interfaces, but no ping with packet size > 500 bytes, No ping interface and no ping between hosts

    sounds like an MTU issue - "show ipconfig

    Router Interface on ADM is enabled and up. inet broadcast Mtu 1500

    I have 2 scenarios, with routing and L2-only, in both i have the same problem

    ping with size 504 is maximum, between hosts or ping on interface of switch

    Hello Luis,

    a packet size of 500B is well inside the typical Ethernet frame data size (64B to 1500B). That should just work.

    Did you check the GTAC Knowledge article How to enable inter-VLAN routing in EXOS? One important step is to enable ipforwarding after configuring the IP addresses.

    You might want to verify that auto-negotiation is working:
    show ports configuration no-refresh[/code]Speed and duplex settings of switch and hosts need to match. Auto-negotiation is usually working fine, thus you should verify that all switch ports and hosts use it.

    If you want to use IP packets larger than 1500B, then you need to enable Jumbo Frames on the switch, and configure an appropriate MTU on the IP interfaces:
    enable jumbo-frame ports all configure ip-mtu SIZE vlan VLANNAME [/code]Best regards,

    I understand if i enable the jumbo frame the capacity of packet is increased to 9k, but i don´t have jumbo enabled on any other device or others switchs, if i had the same test with other switch (customer have hp), the PING works with 1024 and others size > 504 bytes.

    I disable dos-protect. but the same .

    The packets > 504 bytes are passing, but why ping not???

    "show ip-security anomaly" seems to default to a max payload of 512 bytes but is disabled by default?!

    try a "disable ip-security anomaly-protection icmp" to see if that makes any difference?
