can`t figure out what`s wrong with this configuration

Hi everyone, is there someone who could take a look on the configuraitons below. We are talking about 4 routers (lab test), the primary router is R0, all another routers are connected to this router, their names are R1, R2 and R4 all these 3 routers are connected to R0. All of these routers uses OSPF.

The problem is that I can`t ping the routers (each other) I am not able to ping the routers at all, never mind from which router I try to ping, but I am almost 100 % sure that config is right. Wired......
Something I missed ? configuration is below:

Your ethernet interfaces are "shutdown" mate, you need to set them to "no shutdown"
0
 
Shex_Author Commented:
hello, thank you for reply, yes the interfaces that are not used are down "shutdown" but the interfaces that are in use ar not down.

Example R1:

interface FastEthernet0/0
 no ip address
 shutdown
 duplex half
!
interface FastEthernet1/0
 description LINK_TO_R0
 no ip address
 duplex auto
 speed auto
!
interface FastEthernet1/0.20
 description LINK_TO_R0
 encapsulation dot1Q 20
 ip address 10.50.50.2 255.255.255.252

the interface 0/0 is not used and it is down, while the interface 1/0 is used and it is not down, the same with Sub-Interface.

hehe that`s happening when there is couple interfaces, the peoples eyes often looking first after "negative" things :) like "shutdown" in this case.

no problems at all dude, ..... any way, either is this wired or I am blind..

Shex_Author Commented:
first I was thinking to post only needed interfaces, but than I was thinking, there is a peoples who will ask for "whole" router config, so therfore I posted it as it is...

donmanrobbCommented:
Problem seems to be the trunk links on the swtich to the routers
The switchport trunk allowed vlan 1,2,20,1002-1005 would only allow the WAN vlan 1 and VLAN20, link to R1 VLAN. The problem is this keeps the other routers as different VLANs and can't by design communicate with the other devices. You would need to add VLAN 20 - 40 to the allow statements of all trunks. That being said the Switch should be able to ping each router, if not post the output from show cdp nei and show vlans

Shex_Author Commented:
hm, but for example why I can`t ping from R0 to R4 ? these are on the same VLAN as you can see
0
 
donmanrobbCommented:
I wasn't sure from your problem description if you couldn't reach the routers from the switch or not. In anycase its early morning and what I posted might need to be dealt with later depending on your design. As I said though, please post the output from show cdp nei and show vlans.

Shex_Author Commented:
my problem was:

I can`t ping from R0 to R4, I can`t ping from R4 to R0,
I can`t ping from R0 to R1 I can`t ping from R1 to R0

ans so on.... I tryed all combinations for ping testing but no success :(

but let me check it, so I`ll be back to You with show output...
I need to wait around 1 hour before I can log on to these routers, because I am not sitting on the same
location right now.

I am comming back to You........

Thank You for helping dude !!

CAN`T BELIVE that I got the message "No Virtual LANs configured." there is a VLAN hmm WIRED as it can be.

any suggestion ?

but the worst thing is when I am loged on to R0 and trying to ping the ip address 192.168.10.2 which is located on R0 at VLAN40 I got no response from the ping.... I am being crazy really.

Do the following in config mode,
vlan 20,30,40
exit

It's possible to create VLAN interfaces without creating VLANs, which would cause this type of problem.

donmanrobbCommented:
In fact if you check show ip interface brief on the Switch the VLAN interfaces will probably be down.

Shex_Author Commented:
I think that problem may be on R0, because when I log on to all other routers except R0 I can ping their own ip addresses, but when I log on to R0 I am not able to ping its ip addresses on its own interfaces.

just for info, R0 is used as a "switch" so I am almost 100% that problem is on R0 but what ........?

Yeah I noticed the model number a bit too late.

You can add the vlans on the router in privilege mode (# prompt) with:
vlan database
vlan 20
vlan 30
vlan 40
apply
---
Then the VLAN interfaces should come UP/UP after a bit.

Shex_Author Commented:
well now we found the problem, as you say I should add the vlans to the database WHICH I DID before I added and configured the vlan interfaces, BUT when you reminded me for vlan database, I did the following:

R0_2691_SW(vlan)#sh current

than I got only default VLANS in the database, but no VLANS 20,30 and 40, the vlans 20,30,40 was not in the database.

So I did as you told me I added them on to database again and applied them, and now everything is working fine.

BUT !!! when I RELOAD the router whole config is LOST, including VLANS in the database, so each time I reload the router I need to take a backup of the sh config and than restore it back after reboot, and than access the VLAN database so put the clans 20,30 and 40 back on to database.

Something is wrong with router or IOS conf-reg ? this is first time I am working on this router, so I have not noticed that config is lost before now, because I did an reload for to check if the config is saved or not.

So in short words, my problem is coming after router is restarted, I need to copy back the config AND add the VLANS 20,30 and 40 back to database ....

Any idea why the config is not saved even if I use wri mem ?
