Hi Experts,

I have Two ACE modules in bridge mode and its configured as active/standby.

But I cannot ping to the gateway from standby ACE. from the msfc side all the configurations are ok.

Could you plz help us to find the root cause of this ?

Hi Aslam,

Can you please send me the config details of you admin Context by sending the output of the following commands:

# Show running-configuration


# show run ft

and # show ft group detail

I think there is some VLAN problem in your case either configured incorrectly or not included

Can you send your design

Like sample as follows:

FWSM--vlan 7--ACE-vlan 8---servers with default gateway as FWSM

Can you post the output for

show int vlan 505

sh arp

are you running ACE on a C6500 VSS pair?

Do you have an ip in your ACE vlan ?

If both of the device you are trying to ping are in the same VLAN as in ACE it does NOT route between VLANs so you cannot ping the interfaces in different VLANs.

Kindly send your config without which it will be difficult to figure out the exact root cause of your problem or any configuration mismatch.

Hi Sachin,

Thanks for the reply .. My issue has been resolved, It was due to the missing IP for the peer BVI interface..
