Confused about the ACE

Unanswered Question
Feb 2nd, 2012


Just done a course on the ace and seem to be having some trouble with the virtual side

of things.

I am trying to work out why i cant ping out of my virtual instance Testing-11

I have set up the following vlan ....

vlan 1000 10.x.x.21

However when i look at it in the virtual instance i get this ....

vlan1000 is down, VLAN not assigned in Admin

Yet it says Assigned on the physical port, up on the physical port

However on the admin side i have this vlan 1000 and there it is

vlan1000 is up, VLAN up on the physical port

I thought that you had to have the vlan assigned to a physical port

on the admin side - it is but it doesnt work !!!!

Well not in the Virtual instance

I had assumed that all you had to do was to assign the vlan to a physical

port and allocate it to the virtual instance and you should be able to get

there from outside as long as you have the relevant

Policies allowed - is that correct ?

I have another vlan 100 and that has come up ok...


I have this problem too.

Hi Steve,

You just need to allocate the VLAN you want to use to the User Context.  You have to do this in the Admin Context

For example:

ACE-4710A/Admin(config)# context test

ACE-4710A/Admin(config-context)# allocate-interface vlan 1000
