Ping Default Gateway

Hi,

I am wondering if someone could help me with a query I have?

I have simply configured a few VLANs on an x460-48p. I have given each VLAN an ipaddress. When I try to ping the IP Address of one of the VLANs I get

Packet Transmit Error; Destination Unreachable

If I add one of the VLANs to a port Untagged I am able to ping the address? Please can someone provide some information into this behaviour?

Thanks

Hi Tom

IIRC the vlan does need to be assigned to at least one port for the vlan interface to be active.

Thanks for your reply.

Does the port need to be active (have a device on the end of it)?

The vlan must have an active port or be in loopback mode to respond to a ping. To put the vlan into loopback use the following command.

enable loopback-mode vlan XXXX (from Greg_McKillip)
