I have a 6500 series switch case with a 48 port gig switch card, and a supervisor card (WS-X6548V-GE-TX.
I am trying to build a routing table but am having problems. i can enter in a routing statement i.e. (ip route x.x.x.x x.x.x.x x.x.x.x) into the config, but when i show ip route, there will be no entry in the table.
also the gateway of last resort is not set, and during my research, the way to set that is one of three, either enter in a routing statement of 0.0.0.0 0.0.0.0 xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx or set a default-network, or if routing is disabled set a default gateway.
this is my router so the default gateway is out, i have tried both the default network and ip route statment, together and separate with no joy.
in researching this problem, i have not found anything that says a SUP720 engine can't do regular routing, all i have found is that if i was doing IPX routing the software would do it, but i am not doing IPX routing.
needless to say, any assistance would be appreciated.
thanks ahead of time.
Yes if the switch is not connected to anything then this would be the cause of your problem. And NO the route will not be entered into the table anyway.
The gateway of the ip route statement is reachable ?
It must be reachable in order to be installed in the routing table.
Do you have any 'connected' routes listed in the routing table? You should have routes there if you have any L3 interface in up/up state.
Try this ip route
ip route 0.0.0.0 0.0.0.0 null0
then issue a show ip route.
Let us know if that works.
If it works, then routing is working and you have a problem reaching the gateway.
