Static IP Address Cisco Catalyst 3020

Although I've followed the instructions to set the Cisco 3020 switch to a manual IP Address according to the 3020 Software Configuration Guide (pg3-10), the switch remains unpingable - can't recognize to/from the thing.

I have it hooked up to the site LAN through a procurve switch... and had the thing running with an ip address retrieved from the site DHCP servers.

Thx in advance for any ideas.

Re: Static IP Address Cisco Catalyst 3020

Have you tried isolating the Cisco and tried pinging it using a test PC?

Not entirely clear on what you mean in the second part of your question - are saying the switch is contactable if it is setup to use DHCP?

And what testing have you done with / without the Procurve in the chain?

Re: Static IP Address Cisco Catalyst 3020

Hello,

The switch was set up to take it's IPA via the site DHCP servers out of the box and it connected fine; the blades connected fine. Then I "reset" the switch to factory, and applied the static ip address (VLAN 1), netmask, and gateway.

I can access the switch from its static IP address when launching from OA. I normally access the switch through a serial connection.

A blade shows that it has a "1Gb connection" to the 3020, and the switch reports a good connection, but when I try to ping the 3020 (ipa) from the blade, there is no response.

When I try to ping the 3020 from the LAN, there is no response either.

I removed the Procurve from the equation - no change.

Thx for any assistance!

Re: Static IP Address Cisco Catalyst 3020

Thx. I was suffering from a schizoid config... Conflicting FA0 and VLAN1... VLAN1 shutdown...

In the end, I disabled FA0 and "no shutdown" VLAN1 and I'm up. Thx for your attention.
