Configuring and Accessing the Management VLAN

My standard is to configure our 2900 series switches with VLAN10 as the management vlan. I assign VLAN10 an IP and then I am able to manage the switch remotely through this IP. Usually there are one or more ports configured on the switch for VLAN10 as well. I recently setup a switch where all of the ports were configured for VLAN30 plus a Trunk. Because of this, I am unable to ping or remotely access this switch by it's IP. Any suggestions on what I need to do to get back my remote access? Configuring a port for VLAN10 is not an option, although when I do that I can ping by its IP and get my remote access back.

Thanks,

Sarah

Re: Configuring and Accessing the Management VLAN

Hello Sarah,

basically, your management VLAN should be reachable when it is allowed on the trunk. Can you check if that is the case ?

Re: Configuring and Accessing the Management VLAN

That's what I thought. I always configure the TRUNK lines the same, see below. Everything plugged into the switches is working, just not the management vlan on switch 1.

The TRUNK line on Switch 1 is:

interface GigabitEthernet0/2

description TRUNK

switchport mode trunk

switchport trunk encapsulation dot1q

The TRUNK line on Switch 2 is:

interface FastEthernet0/31

description TRUNK

switchport trunk encapsulation dot1q

switchport mode trunk

no ip address

I must be missing something, but I just don't know what.

Thank you,

Sarah

Re: Configuring and Accessing the Management VLAN

switchport trunk native vlan 30

Try this command on the trunk port and see if it helps
