Re: IP Overlapping on 6509


I am trying to apply an ip on a sub vlan interface and I am recieving an error "ip overlap error? Is there an additional function I need to enable?



Re: Re: IP Overlapping on 6509

Either you are configuring two different interfaces with the same ip address or between two different interface you have an overlapping ip address due to incorrect masking. post your configuration so we can check for you, if possible do not edit so we can see the true configuration.

Re: Re: IP Overlapping on 6509

Here they are..

interface FastEthernet6/14

description * Uplink I

ip address

ip access-group 101 in

interface Vlan711 (would like to assign for instance /24)

no ip address



Re: Re: IP Overlapping on 6509

the address is overlapping with

both of these addresses reside on the same network,

you cannot configure two router interfaces with the same network (aka subnet)

try to configure vlan711 as this should work as you now have different subnets/networks defined.

(of course, if you have network defined elsewhere, this will still be a problem)

Re: Re: IP Overlapping on 6509

I am sure that you can see that ip address and /24 are in the same network /24 and this the reason the switch is complaining that the ip address are overlapping. You can NOT put two different interfaces in the same subnet. You need to figure out your addressing scheme and decide which interface to change to what subnet.

Re: Re: IP Overlapping on 6509

That makes sense! I just reviewed my 6513 configuration and you both are correct. Due to the fact I just started here I am still getting familiar with the setup and configurations here at the company. I have so much to do in so little time which is throwing my train of thought out the box. -lol

-thanks again for the bright light!
