How to configure management int on Cat6509 with IOS

I have a layer 2 Cat6509 Access switch with IOS.

The following is configured for the management interface:

interface Vlan2020

description Network Management Interface

ip address 30.176.20.5 255.255.255.0

ip default-gateway 30.176.20.1

The default GW is on the Cores.

The problem is I can't ping that IP from anywhere on my network and vice-versa.

Could you send a traceroute to the management IP address. you should check the routing.

Make sure ip routing is turned off , otherwise you need to configure a default static route instead of a default gateway statement which is only used when routing is actually turned off "no ip routing" .

I guess ip routing is turned on by default in these switches.

Do I turn it off in global config?

Switch(config)#no ip routing ?

% Unrecognized command

Thank you

Hi

You cannot turn off IP routing on the 6500 with IOS release 12.1(20)E and later.

Assuming you have a later IOS the simplest thing to is change

ip default-gateway 30.176.20.1

to

ip route 0.0.0.0 0.0.0.0 30.176.20.1
