I have tried to add a new vLan to my server chassie and then add it manulay to the blad server. The problem is that i can´t connect to the network, do I have to initate it in the fabric switch? Anyone got a tip where to start trubleshooting?
Solved! Go to Solution.
To start with,
1) Are you able to ping the gateway of the device ?
2) If not, we need to trace the MAC address. We can determine the path taken by vnic of server by following command
show service-profile circuit server x/y ( where x is chassis number and y is blade slot number )
3) Connect to nxos mode of the FI and check whether mac address is learned on correct VLAN or not
show mac address-table
If not, we need to verify OS NIC VLAN configuration ( whether assigned proper VLAN or not )
4) Verify VLAN configuration on the upstream switch.
Not required unless if you are trying to communicate to a device connected to FI on appliance port.
Providing more information about source / destination would help us here.
What is the OS installed on the blade ?
Chassis and blade number ?
Are you able to ping the gateway ip address for Vlan 102 ?
The vLAn should be deployed to all blad servers 6 at the moment in 2 chassis. I ám running esxi 4.1 on the blade. I can´t ping the gateway from a vm on the blade.
The vNIC in UCS has the same MAC adress as the vSwitch in vSphere. How can I see a specific virtual machines mac adress in USC´n?
I found the MAC adress and we found the problem in the router. Thank you Padramas you have been very helpful.
