Routing with a 6509

I want to create multiples Vlans with this switch. My problem is how can I configure the interfaces to routing. When I start session 15 in enable mode I only get Vlan 1 when I use the show interface command. The must complicated part is that I can't get a physical interface an sub-interface to assigne my Ip address and mask. I need to know the commands I can use to fix this problem. How to configure VTP between router and switch?

Please if you need any hint contact me.

thanks, regards Leo.


Re: Routing with a 6509

Reading your posting it might be that your switch is not capable of layer3 switching at all. You will need an MSFC card on the supervisor for this.

Issue the following command:

- show modules

The output will also show add-on boards on the supervisor. If there is no MSFC 1 or 2 and you have a sup1 or sup2, then this is a layer 2 switch.

You can configure vlans, but not inter-vlan routing. Please post the output when you are in doubt.

Re: Routing with a 6509


The simple way to findout whether you have MSFC card or not , just issue a command show module from Switch. You should have a MSFC card in 6509 for Routing .


6509_core > sh module
