I purchased an SGE2010 for a small lab network within a test and development lab that are on different subnets/VLANS, but I want to be able to share some servers e.g. a wiki server, IM server, and a storage repository on the test VLAN to the development VLANs.
So far I have:
Development VLAN 1000 - IP address 192.168.1.253 /24
Test VLAN 2000 - IP address 169.254.6.253 /24
all machines on the development VLAN (1000) will be 192.168.1.* and the test VLAN (2000) machines will be 169.254.6.*.
The three servers I wish to share from the test VLAN (2000) are at ip address 169.254.6.100 - 102.
I have configured the SGE2010 as a layer3 switch (via telnet configuration console) and can successfully join a test PC to either VLAN, but cannot see (ping) anything on the "other" VLAN including the VLAN IP addresses (253).
I have tried to add a static route - destination 169.254.6.100 to next hop of 169.254.6.253 (VLAN IP address), but the config utility changes the .6.100 to .6.0 and says that the defautl gateway cannot be an IP address on this switch.
Am I mistaken in thinking that a layer 3switch should be able to do this? Any help in adding routes or enabling inter-vlan routing would be appreciated.
