Pinging with 32 bytes of data:

Reply from bytes=32 time<1ms TTL=255

Reply from bytes=32 time<1ms TTL=255

Request timed out.

Reply from bytes=32 time<1ms TTL=255

atleast one packet loss. But we know the server isnt connected. The layer 3 switch 6509 with

6509> (enable) sh module 15

when is look at my arp table on my pc it shows 00-d0-04-f4-ab-fc

weh checked on the switch with

_6509> (enable) sh cam msfc 15 100

Re: ICMP response

Any possibility that the MSFC is configured with this specific address?

Hope this helps,

Re: ICMP response

what i would suggest you is, just login to the layer 3 module, type "show ip arp" juz find the mac-address of this ip address & then come out from the layer 3 module from the cisco 6509 switch interface type "show cam ab:cd:ef:gh:ij:kl" it should show where exactly the mac-address is residing, with that you can come to know whether the MSFC is using the IP address or it is pointing to any other pc.

Re: ICMP response

I cant see the ip address assigned to MSFC anywhere. are we right to say its being used by MSFC

Re: ICMP response

Once you type "show ip arp" in the MSFC, what MAC-Address you see?, & then from the "6509>(enable)show cam " is it poiting to the MSFC?

Yes, thts wht i pasted before

but how do i make msfc not use it, wht shd i do?

Re: ICMP response


Please login to MSFC and then paste the output from " show config " and " show ip int brief". It should list the address, if used by the MSFC.

What happens if you clear the ARP on msfc " clear ip arp ".

Re: ICMP response

clear the arp , and ping the ip again doesnt help..if msfc is using it i cant figure why? because the config doesnt show anything line with

Re: ICMP response

This is something a strange behavior is happening. but can you tell me how many vlans are created in the msfc & make sure that this ip address is not set even as a standby IP address. this is might b silly, could you juz restart the switch during the night or day time after working hours. it might help.
