Dual IP address on a Server - Unable to ping or tracerout both IP addresses

The following traceroutes were done from a Cisco 1603 router whose IP addresses are as follows to a Unix Server which has 2 x IP addresses 10.11.137.21 and 10.11.137.28.

The traceroutes fail when the Unix Server has 2 x IP Addresses, but passes when one IP address is removed from the Unix Server's configuration.

Re: Dual IP address on a Server - Unable to ping or tracerout bo

HI,

Do you put the two ip address in the same subnet? if so try to put them into different subnets. if you put them in the same subnet, there might be problem.

Same subnet. Cannot put in different subnet.

Re: Dual IP address on a Server - Unable to ping or tracerout bo

Hi,

Then try to use sub-interface in the router to put the router interface in to different subnet (router on a stack) and then put the NICs to different subnets. It's not recommend to put two NIC in a server to 1 subnet. That may cause problem!

Best Regards

Teru Lei
