I can't ping my own IP address on switch Cisco2960. I have an identical configuration with exception of IP addresses on it's partner primary switch but I can't ping the IP address of the secondary\backup switch and I could ping the IP address on primary switch.


Please advise.

Hello June,


Is the backup switch IP in the same subnet as the primary?  Since the 2960s are layer-2 devices you can only have one IP address (svi) at the time and that is for management.

Hello Reza,

Thanks for responding to my post.Yes,  the backup switch IP address is in the same subnet as the primary.

Hello June,


So you have an svi configured on each switch and gave it an IP address in the same subnet? Did you also remember to add a port to the vlan?

What is the status of the vlan and the physical interface?

Can you post the config from both switches?

Reza,

Yes, they are all in up mode. I could actually ping the workstations connected in the backup switch from a different location but not the backup IP address.I'll try to check tomorrow the "sh ip int brie" shows" tomorrow when I get back at site.




Regards,

June
