connectivity between svi problem

Ok I dont know why I am drawing a blank here but for some reason i cant connect between these 2 svi's.

I have 2 layer 3 switches.

Switch 1:

int vlan 100

ip address 172.16.1.133/29

int g1/10

description "trunk to switch2"

switchport trunk encap dot1q

switchport mode trunk

switchport nonegotiate

Switch 2:

int vlan 100

ip address 172.16.1.141/29

int g1/12

description "trunk to switch1"

switchport trunk encap dot1q

switchport mode trunk

switchport nonegotiate

Ok so the trunk forms with no problem but I cannot ping the 172.16.1.133 from switch 2 and cannot ping 172.16.1.141 from switch 1.

I can ping 172.16.1.133 from switch 1, which it is configured on.

I can ping 172.16.1.141 from switch 2, which it is configured on.

What am I missing here?

Re: connectivity between svi problem

These are different subnets.

172.16.1.133/29 is 172.16.1.[128 - 135]

172.16.1.141/29 is 172.16.1.[136 - 143]

Re: connectivity between svi problem

yes I know this. Anyway I can connect them via the vlan ? Should I remove the trunk?

Re: connectivity between svi problem

You've configured the same Vlan on both switches (Vlan100) but you've assigned IPs that belong on different subnets.

It's like configuring 2 workstations with IP

172.26.1.10 in one device and 192.168.1.10 in another.

There is no trick or way around it, they must belong to a common subnet.

Re: connectivity between svi problem

Thanks for the reply. I am going nuts with this ewan configuration.

I have 2 layer 3 switches connected into the ewan cloud and both of them need the same int vlan 100 with different IP subnets for connectivity like shown here http://www.cisco.com/en/US/netsol/ns341/ns396/ns223/ns227/networking_solutions_white_paper09186a00801e1225.shtml#wp41702

I cant figure out how to link these 2 l3 switches together without going through the cloud.

any advise?

Re: connectivity between svi problem

Well, there is a way, if these are layer-3 switches and they are doing IP routing.

On switch 1:

ip route 172.16.1.136 255.255.255.248 vlan1

On switch 2:

ip route 172.16.1.128 255.255.255.248 vlan1

It's a bit messy.
