2924 - switch#show Ip

Unanswered Question
Aug 4th, 2007


When I type this command in by using hyperterminal I get the Ip address of 1.

Can anyone explain to me why? I am new in the cisco world and could use your help.



I have this problem too.

When doing the command "show ip" on a layer 2 switch it shows the number of the management VLAN as illustrated below (which should be 1 by default, any way try changing it as follows):

SW3#sh ip int brief | i VLAN

VLAN1 unassigned NO unset up down

VLAN13 YES manual up up

SW3#sh ip

Thanks a bunch,

From your reply I was able to figure out how to change the ip address, but unfortunately when I turned it off it went back to the orginal. I tried to run the command: copy running-config startup-config, but it did not like it. I have a cisco book and have passed the CNA 5 years ago, but I forgot all of it because the lack of having anything to play with. Is there a place to go to find proper commands for certain devices? Do you know the command I need to save my changes for this 2924 switch? The total memory is not quite 4mb if I am reading this right. Is that what you see?

This is what I am looking at so far:

Switch-4385#show memory

Head Total(b) Used

(b) Lowest(b) t(b)

Processor 45FF1C 3801316 1749908 2051408 1778828 1773128

I/O 70000000 1048576 606784 441792 328436 425692

Switch-4385#show ip


Switch-4385#show ip interface brief vlan1

Interface IP-Address OK? Method Status Prot



Switch-4385(config)#interface vlan1

Switch-4385(config-if)#ip address




Switch-4385#show interface vlan1

VLAN1 is up, line protocol is up
