I have a 371098-001 switch with IOS 12.2(25)SED. I've been told its a layer 3 switch, however I don't know how to enable it to do routing, could someone please help me with this?
yes you can have routing on switch...you can convert the perticular port in to the layer 3 using command no switchport under the perticular interface. and you can also configure the routing protocol and to eable routing i think you have to go for ip routing command
As it is a layer 3 switch you will be able to configure routing and routing between the vlans which is intervlan routing.
To configure intervlan routing you have to configure logical interface for vlans after creating the vlans in vlan database and then assign them an ip address.
To configure layer 2 ports as layer 3 you have to give a command "no switchport" at interface config mode and assign an ip address and no shut.
To configure routing protocol you have to configure it the way you do on normal routers.
BUT very imp is that by default "ip routing" is disable you have to enable it first for any routing to work.
Make sure you enable "ip routing" command on global config mode.
Have a look at this link which will guide you how you can do normal routing and also to configure routing protocols on 3750 switch on the IOS code you are having on your switch
HTH, if yes please rate the post.
Thanks for the reply. The problem is that I don't have teh command "ip routing" on the switch, so I can't enable or disable it?
Any ideas what impact this has on enabling layer 3 functionality?
If it is 3750 switch it will 100% be having "ip routing" command and without enabling this command routing functionality will not work.
ip host-routing is to configure your communication server to act as a terminal server and this will not enable layer 3 functionality on your switch.
Can you past the "sh version", "sh run" and output of ip ? from global config mode from your switch?
Firstly thanks everyone for your replies.

I've attached teh outputs of "sh version" and "sh run"
ip ? :

Hope this helps
It is not a 3750 switch but it is Cisco Gigabit Ethernet Switching Module something related to HP not very sure about this.
Dan this will help you
Configuring routing consists of several main procedures:
To support VLAN interfaces, create and configure VLANs on the switch stack, and assign VLAN membership to Layer 2 interfaces.
Configure Layer 3 interfaces.
Enable IP routing on the switch.
Assign IP addresses to the Layer 3 interfaces.
Enable selected routing protocols on the switch.
Configure routing protocol parameters

If it's not a 3750, and it can't do routing, then why what would be the benefit of asking to set ip addressess for each interface?
in this link posted by ankur ...in this document HP have give some information and also some IOS issue so you can try with your hp support also to resolve this issue
This is a Cisco's Gigabit Ethernet switch module for HP blade servers. it is a pure layer 2 switch. Its not a layer 3 switch, so you cannot configure Layer 3 routing on it.
HTH, Please rate if it does.
Thanks for the input. I guess this one reamins a mistery, unless someone can come up with a solution.
Just for information sake, how would having an IP on each interface help with management?
