Odd, Native VLAN question

Unanswered Question
Jan 30th, 2007

I have a 3745 with a 34 port ethernet card.

I configure port 2/0 as a trunk. I create interface vlan 1 and assign it an IP and no shut.

Now, port 2/0 is a trunk and it's up. But why is interface vlan 1 showing "up, down"?

The trunk has native vlan set to 1 by default so - interface vlan 1 should be "up, up" but is isn't!

Anyone explain why?

I have this problem too.

You have a port on that ethernet card that is vlan 1 and is connected before the SVI will go up/up , once you get one port in vlan connected the SVI will go up/up.

Hello,

TO have SVI go up you have to have one of the below cases:

1- One interface assigned to the vlan and in UP/UP state

2- You have a trunk port in Up/UP state

You case matches number 2. However, issue the command "show interface trunk" to check if the port has negotiated as trunk. Also, make sure that the trunk interface is in UP/UP state.

You need to wait for about 15 seconds after the trunk is up so that the SVI goes up.

One last thing to check is that if you layer 2 switch you cann't have to SVIs with IP addresses assigned and UP. One of them showed only be up.

Let me know if one of the above solves your problem and appreciate your rating,

As you say in case 2, I should see the SVI up but it isn't. I think this is a bug because the trunk is up and all other tagged VLAN SVI's are up.

Only the native VLAN is not coming up but there is an interface up because the native VLAN port is up.

Maybe you can post the trunk setup on both sides . I doubt it is bug .

What type of Switch is it?

If it is L2 switch you can have ONE SVI up!

Dave,

Do a 'show int (trunk_port) switchport' and check whether vlan 1 is allowed on the trunk. Sometimes, pruning (manual or vtp pruning) mightn't be forwarding data on a trunk for a certain vlan.
