Does your running config have

"switchport access vlan xx" commands under the interface = native


set vlan

Native = L2 and L3 is configured from one place

Hybrid = L2 configured from supervisor with "set" commands, L3 configured from MSFC.

Hello Jarrod,

native mode has only one telnet/SSH session

sh ip interface brief

is supported

CatOS allows to telnet/SSH to layer2 supervisor and to routing engine (MSFC) as distinct heads

from supervisor you can access MSFC with session N, where N is a number like 15

sh port

is supported

when in enable mode prompt becomes switch(enable)>

show module can tell you all this at once looking at SW column

Hope to help
