Cisco 3550 to 3524

Unanswered Question
Mar 30th, 2012

Hello,

I have these 2 switches Cisco 3550 to 3524 as a test lab and I have set the 3550 up as the core\routing.

I want to trunk and talk between them but I cant get them talking, I've followed this:

http://www.ciscopress.com/articles/article.asp?p=29803&seqNum=3

Switch configs are below, 3524:

On int vlan 5 do a "no shut" then you should be able to ping to the other switch interface on vlan5

Sent from Cisco Technical Support iPad App

harrisgirls Fri, 03/30/2012 - 15:01

Right i've applied the no shut to vlan 5 on the edge which I cannot ping the edge switch still:

nterface VLAN5

ip address 10.1.5.10 255.255.255.0

no ip directed-broadcast

no ip route-cache

shutdown

I can now ping all vlans!

any idea still on the switch ip?

Also if I try and ping any default gateway from the core I get this:

Switch#ping 10.1.2.254

Type escape sequence to abort.

Sending 5, 100-byte ICMP Echos to 10.1.2.254, timeout is 2 seconds:

.....

Success rate is 0 percent (0/5)

jonathansylvain Fri, 03/30/2012 - 15:12

Hi HGAED,

You don't seem to have a default gateway applied to the 3524, so it gets packets from your PC in the 10.1.2.0/24 network but doesn't know where to send it back.

Give that switch a default gateway of 10.1.5.254 and the 3524 will know where to send the icmp reply.

ip default-gateway 10.1.5.254

HTH

Thanks Jonathan,

I've now applied that command, the output:

Switch#

Switch#ping 10.1.5.254

Type escape sequence to abort.

jonathansylvain Fri, 03/30/2012 - 15:26

Ok at this point let's make sure it's not a L1 or L2 problem.

Do a show int gi0/2 on both switch to make sure they are both in an up/up state.

From my laptop with static IP 10.1.2.5 I can ping all vlan gateways, from core I can ping laptop fine.

From core I cannot ping 10.1.5.10 which is the VLAN5 and IP of edge switch

Thanks for helping, I'm more a ProCurve man!...

enrique020 Fri, 03/30/2012 - 15:52

Issue "show interface trunk" on both switches, do you see your vlans on the trunk?

harrisgirls Fri, 03/30/2012 - 15:56

from 3550:

bmi-c3550-core#show interface trunk

Port        Mode         Encapsulation  Status        Native vlan

Gi0/2       on           802.1q         trunking      1

Port      Vlans allowed on trunk

Gi0/2       1-100

Port        Vlans allowed and active in management domain

Gi0/2       1-8,10

Port        Vlans in spanning tree forwarding state and not pruned

Gi0/2       1-8,10

bmi-c3550-core#

bmi-c3550-core#

from 3524:

When I plum the command into the 3524 I get this:

Switch#show interface trunk

                        ^

% Invalid input detected at '^' marker.

Switch#

enrique020 Fri, 03/30/2012 - 16:09

OK, try this instead on the 3524  show int gi0/2 switchport



harrisgirls Fri, 03/30/2012 - 16:11

Done from 3524

Switch#show int gi0/2 switchport

Name: Gi0/2

Switchport: Enabled

Administrative mode: trunk

Operational Mode: trunk

Administrative Trunking Encapsulation: dot1q

Operational Trunking Encapsulation: dot1q

Negotiation of Trunking: Disabled

Access Mode VLAN: 0 ((Inactive))

Trunking Native Mode VLAN: 1 (default)

Trunking VLANs Enabled: 1-100,1002-1005

Trunking VLANs Active: 1-8,10

Pruning VLANs Enabled: 2-1001

Priority for untagged frames: 0

Override vlan tag priority: FALSE

Voice VLAN: none

Appliance trust: none

Interesting from 3524, I cannot ping any gateways or laptop, but the laptop is connected to the 3524 and can ping gateways

enrique020 Fri, 03/30/2012 - 16:20

Try shutting down vlan 1 on the 3524, make sure vlan 5 is enabled and ping again

harrisgirls Fri, 03/30/2012 - 16:25

Getting somewhere now, I did have this:

interface VLAN5

ip address 10.1.5.10 255.255.255.0

no ip directed-broadcast

no ip route-cache

shutdown

ran the no shutdown command on int vlan 5 and its come alive now!

Looks like I can ping everything between switches.

Looking at both switch configs in the top post is there anything else I need todo or any recommended commands?

enrique020 Fri, 03/30/2012 - 16:58

For the 3524,  I would say to assign the user ports to a vlan of your choice using the "switchport access vlan " and still shutdown the interface vlan1.
