URGENT! PCs loosing gateways

We have just rebooted all r switches. We have 2 Core 6509 connected to various 4003/4006. They have come up ok but then all the PCs are loosing their default gateways intermittently. Please help?

How can I know or troubleshoot? How can I find out if it is not the switch giving problems?


Re: URGENT! PCs loosing gateways

Not sure what you mean by that . When you do a ipconfig on the pc's are you saying the default gateways on the nics are missing or are you saying for some reason the network stops working . First place to start obviously before reloading the switches is to look at the logs and decipher if there is anything strange going on or happened about the time the pc's stopped working , really hard to say could be anything from an infected pc or flapping links causing spanning tree type problems . Check to see if the roots for all your vlans are where you think they should be . Are you getting a large amount of topology changes on the lan , if so what is causing it .

Thanks Glen

We tracked it down to a DHCP Server error. This has now been corrected. Thanks
