I think I'm missing something very simple here. I have added a host to port gi1/1 on the 6509. I can ping the HSRP virtual address from the host and I can ping other gateway's elsewhere in the network. However I can't ping the host on the vlan 100. There is a route to the VLAN everything looks good. The host is on the same subnet, just can't figure this out. I have attached the configuration file.
Any help well rated...
Just to clarify
1) You can ping vlan100 HSRP address from host.
2) From the host you can ping remote addresses ( remote no being on the 6500)
3) From the 6500 can you ping the host ?
4) From a remote address can you ping the host.
Are you using the same remote addresses when you ping from the host and to the host.
I can't ping the host from the 6500 switch! I can ping an address 10.70.10.1 which is on the other side of the network. I can ping the VLAN IP 172.22.100.130 and the HSRP address 172.22.100.129. The default gateway of the host is the HSRP address 172.22.100.129.
Its strange that I can do a traceroute from the host to 10.70.10.1 and get all the results back!!
Am I just missing something here?
:) first thing I checked!!
Turned off Windows firewall and also tried permiting ICMP packets.
I can do much more than ping from the host I can telnet to other switches.
I'm going to try another host just in case its something quirky with my laptop. Will post the result.
Does the config look ok?
I am not able to understand one thing.
Just came to my mind...If u have 2 hosts in same subnets connected to the same switch, then u should have same vlan 100 configured on at least 2 ports. I am seeing only one port with vlan 100 config.
Am I making mistake in understanding you?
In given configuration only one access port is configured that is gi1/1 for vlan 100.
could u tell me on which port u have connected the other host to which u trying to ping.
just checked that the port on which second host is connected is configured as access port with vlan 100.
Yes I have only one access port configured thats because I only have one host configured! Anyway the problem seemed to be related to the laptop I was using I connected another host to the network and a ping worked fine!! This was stange to me because I turned of the windows firewall and still could not see the ping!
Thanks for all the suggestions..
Sometimes, I do have same type of problem. But they are generally solved by disabling/enabling the NIC.
Do you find errors on the switch interface when you connect your problematic host?
