VIP used as gateway on Nexus switch: Can't be used in extended ping?
I am troubleshooting an issue about connectivity to a couple boxes.
We have two Nexus switches. From one I can ping the 2 boxes but their MAC address is not shown when I issue "show ip arp [IP_address]".
On the other switch, I see the MAC addresses but cannot ping.
On the switch that ping works, the SVI for the 2 boxes is administratively down (currently investigating the reason why it was disabled). Then the echo requests are being forwarded thru the switch default gateway? Assuming so and to confirm I did a extended ping to one of the boxes, source IP address was the switch default gateway which happens to be a HSRP Virtual Address. Ping succeded, actually it worked when pinging with another ViP as source
On the switch where I can see the servers MAC addresses, I tried the same extended ping (usings the respective default gateway and another ViP), an error message: invalid source address, was returned.
We are pleased to announce availability of Beta software for 16.6.3. 16.6.3 will be the second rebuild on the 16.6 release train targeted towards Catalyst 9500/9400/9300/3850/3650 switching platforms. We are looking for early feedback from custome...
