Guys, curious question... I have a 6509 (core sw) and 4 3560 switches connected to this 6509. Each of these 4 switches has its management IP configured.
The management IP addresses of the switches sit on subnet 10.10.5.0/24
From one of these switches, I start pinging hosts which reside in other VLANs (for example, 10.10.20.3) and the switch will not know how to get (ping) to the host if it wasn't for the âip default-gateway 10.10.5.1â command configured on the switch. Is this correct assumption? Can you please correct me if I am wrong here?
Exactly what this âip default-gateway x.x.x.xâ command does when configured on a switch?
