Hi Friend,

As you mentioned you were not able to ping to the switch but can you confirm if data traffic is still passing through your switch?

Also I believe you will not be able to telnet on to the switch. Also can you confirm the IOS version you are running on the switch?

There was a bug where all management traffic does not work but switch still keep passing data traffic. I will update you with the bug id if you can confirm me the symptoms which I updated holds true in your situation.
