Cannot Access Vlan from UCS

Hello All,

Brief topology,

Mikrotik ----------> Catalyst ----------> UCS

I have vlan 12 at Mikrotik , and Guest OS VMWare at UCS. Problem is guest os cannot connect to Mikrotik.


    -- Configure interface bonding

    -- Configure vlan 12 on bonding interface and add IP address

    -- Configure bridge interface (bonding interface and vlan 12)

*Catalyst 4500

    -- int vlan 12, no ip address

    -- int te 1/13 , switchport mode trunk , switchport trunk allowed vlan 12


    -- Vlan 12 

Please advice.



You might want to take this

You might want to take this step by step, for example get it working without bonding.  

Is UCS doing trunking too?  If not, then you'll need to set vlan 12 as the native port on the Catalyst, since UCS won't be tagging the frames.

Also, there is no need to "int vlan 12" if the Cataylyst is only acting as a Layer 2 switch for than vlan.

These IOS commands on the Catalyst might be useful for troubleshooting:

show etherchannel summary

show vlan id 12

show spanning-tree vlan 12

show mac address-table vlan 12

show interfaces trunk
