Cannot ping REAL server IP addresses from CSM 6500
I have a dual 6500/CSM routed topology in which the traffic from clients to the server VIP works fine. However, in preparation for some upcoming work, I find that I cannot ping the REAL server IP addresses. This would seem to be an important troubleshooting step. Any ideas why this wouldn't work?
Re: Cannot ping REAL server IP addresses from CSM 6500
Gilles, followup question. If I understand this, what you outlined above will allow traffic external coming into the 6500/CSM to be forwarded thru to the REAL server IPs. If it wasn't clear, I was trying to ping from the native-mode 6500 that contains the CSM. I've tried regular and extended pings using the CSM-configured server VLAN's IP and alias IP, but get no response back from any of the REAL server IP addresses.
Is what you've indicated required to ping even if I'm on the 6500 which contains the CSM?
Moquery is the command line cousin of Vizore, it's very helpful and efficient sometimes during the troubleshooting. This article aims to provide moquery cheat sheet to the users for some most common seen scenarios.
