Reg : Newly installed Switch does not take default route rather takes diffrent route
As salamu alaikum.,
We are facing a following issue :-
1. Actually our company network was designed before 10 years which is connected with Distributed switch 1 - L3 in one building serving several departments with muliple VLAN's for each department. Ex :-Vlan2,Vlan3,Vlan4, VLan5
2. Now before i joined in this company they have attached an another Distributed switch 2 - L3 which is connected with a set of systems with different VLAN's.
Ex : Vlan 51, Vlan 52, Vlan 53, Vlan 54 and etc.,
For example when a traffic is generated to send to access systems in between systems connected in ( Vlan2) Switch1...
If any request is requested or sent to any specific VLAN in the switch2 (ie.Newly installed ) the traffic is not going directly into the corresponding switch but rather first it moves to the Switch1 and then to Switch 2 and then to workstation VLAN.
The hop-count to reach the destination is high and packets travel unnecessarily to the other switches connected without any need.
Unable to find a perfect solution, since it is operational network we are unable to take risk changing the configuration without any confirmation.

interface we use the VLAN tag to demultiplex the VLANs. The switch needs
to determine which MAC Address table to look in for a forwarding
decision. To do this we require the switch to do...
