This is collapsed core design.
I have 3550 which has a Gig access link connection to core switch 2(6513) on vlan253.
It also has another access-link connection to a 3524 switch on vlan 230.
3550 switch has ip address as 192.168.253.13 and default gateway 192.168.253.1 (core 2) and no SVI for vlan230.
I am trying to connect a host on 3550 swi in vlan 30 with static ip address and see port UP and UP but no connectevity.
Q1. On my host i am using a default gateway as 192.168.230.1. Is this a problem. if not what can be the problem?
Core 2 has route to 192.168.230.0 network. Core 2 does not any SVI for 230
I have noticed my network has lot of access link connection between switches and not trunks
Q2.What effect does this make?
