i am farily fluent with Cisco have been studying for CCNP but i am having a problem with a new to us (bought these used) 6509 / Sup 720. Problem is when i add interface VLAN's they stay in the shutdown state even though i have typed "no shutdown". Also i have noticed the switchport port-security mac-address sticky command isnt there - (all but the sticky part is there), They have a 12.2(18) IOS and i am able to ping the interface i have connected my router to. I havent worked with the SUP720 and i think there must be a command i am missing - has anyone run into this before? I have other 6509's with the Supervisor 2 module which diddnt have this issue.

I didn't understand you

You created VLANs through #vlan database and then added interfaces to VLANs ?
Or used other procedure...
Is any interface up int that VLANs ?

hi i created them in IOS, for example i went to config t then said: int VLAN 29 - then put in the IP then no shut. I did also add the vlan itself. None of the vlan interfaces are up

i have two of these switched and both are behaving the same so i gather there must be something i am missing. I also enabled routing by adding a default route out the switch.

Did you create the VLAN first? Do a "show vlan brief" and make sure the VLAN exists. If it doesn't, create it.







conf t
vlan 29
end
copy run start

Here's the thing...
The Layer 3 vlan interface will stay down until something is connected to one of the vlan interfaces, or if you connect another switch on a trunk port. Trunking brings the vlan interface up.
If something is in fact connected, can you post result of "show vlan" and "show ip int brief"

No ports in the VLAN. If you don't have a trunk carrying the VLAN, the interface won't come up. There's no need for it to since there's nothing to talk to. :-)

Make a working port a member of VLAN 29 and it should come right up.

donjohnston i think you might be right - just tried adding a vlan on my other older 6509 with the supervisor 2 and same thing, i added one last week but added a switch and a trunk port right away (no probs). I did put a port in the vlan29 but it needs a host before it will come up. Tommorow morning i will add a host and when it comes up you get the 500 points and i will have learned something the hard way :-)

thank you!!
