Staging and upgrading Nexus 5000

Unanswered Question

Hello I have been trying to upgrade the Nexus OS on a Nexus 5010 in a staging area. After configuring the mgmt0 interface and my laptop on the same subnet, I can ping the switch from my laptop but canot reach my laptop from the switch. I get an error that the switch cannot find the route does not exist. mgmt0 is configured for 10.1.1.55/24 and laptop is 10.1.1.1/24.

I used the iproute in vrf context 0.0.0.0 10.1.1.1 (next hop my laptop).

When I put the full config on the switch with an active defgwy, then I can tftp the new image from my laptop.

How do I configure mgmt0 to to talk directly to my laptop for the upgrades before putting the switch on the network or is there another way? Are the mgmt ports layer 3 only?

Thanks,

d.j.

I have this problem too.
