TitleWhy ping/traceroute failed the switches are in VCS mode with FVG configured?
Question
When initiate ping/traceroute from VDX switches in VCS mode and with FVG configured, why the ping/traceroute failed?
Environment
  • VDX
Answer
You need an individual IP address on a RBridge in order to initiate ping/traceroute. If only the FVG IP is configured and there is no IP address on the Rbridge where you initiate ping/traceroute, the ping/traceroute will fail.

e.g.

RB5# show running-config interface ve 100
interface Ve 100
 no shutdown
 attach rbridge-id add 3,5
 ip fabric-virtual-gateway
  gateway-address 192.168.100.254/24
  enable
 !
!
RB5# show running-config rbridge-id 5 interface ve 100
rbridge-id 5
 interface Ve 100
  ip proxy-arp
  ip address 192.168.100.5/24
  no shutdown
 !
