I have a 2924M XL with a 1 port GBIC card installed, from looking @ the IOS it seems that I can configure a switchport trunk encapsulation dot1q and set it up as a trunk link back to my 4006. The 4006 has a vtp domain and password configured so I have manually matched that config back on the 2900 XL switch with the vlan database command. I still can't get them to ping and debugging dtp frames is showing that my gig int on the 2900 is dropping the frames? I have vlan 1 as the native vlan on all my trunks but this is the first time I've tried to configure a 2900 switch as at trunk? Any help would be appreciated.
I'm using a vlan called vlan 55 for my mgnt. domain. I've created a vlan 55 in the 2900 and it is in the same vtp domain as the 4006 but when I assign a valid address in vlan 55 to the 2900 it still won't ping anything. I've set up the default-gateway on the 2900 to be the same gateway for vlan 55. What am I doing wrong?
1) Try to assign a physical interface on the 2900 to VLAN55 and connect a PC with an IP address from VLAN55 range to it. Ping from the PC to the 2900 management address. If the ping is not OK, there is something wrong in the 2900 config and check the int VLAN55 config part for a correct IP address and "no shut".
2) If you are able to ping locally (described above), try to assign a port on your 4006 to VLAN55 and ping to 2900 management address from a PC connected to 4006's port.
If you are not able to ping now, the problem is on the trunk between your 2900 and the 4006. Check if VLAN55 is allowed on both trunk sides. Use "sh int fa 0/x sw" on your 2900 to check VLAN55 status on the trunk and "sh trunk x/y" on your 4006.
If you are able to ping now, try
3) ping from another VLAN. If you are not able to ping, check the default gateway address on the 2900. It has to be the address of a router interface in VLAN55 address range.
This is so simple I can't believe I missed it but here was my fix.....
Inside the int vlan 55 config there was an option for management. I guess by default int vlan 1 was the management interface so I simply went into config t mode and typed int "management" and then I was able to ping the 55 address. I will have to document this on my install sheets but once again, thank you very much for your help Milan! :-) please respond and let me know your thoughts about my fix....just for grins.
