I have a Cisco 2901 ISR that I have to drop into our colocation center. I was given some IPs that I can use but the way it is setup, I need to bridge two interfaces on our router. The router also has a switch plugged into two EHWIC slots and the ports on this switch are configured for Vlan11. The interfaces I need to bridge are G0/0 and Vlan11. I set it up as such:
bridge irb
!
interface GigabitEthernet0/0
 description Datacenter side of BVI
 no ip address
 duplex auto
 speed auto
 bridge-group 1
!
interface GigabitEthernet0/1/0
 switchport access vlan 11
!
interface Vlan11
 description Server side of BVI
 no ip address
 bridge-group 1
!
interface BVI1
 ip address XXX.XXX.XXX.144 255.255.255.224
!
bridge 1 route ip

Open in new window


Now I have a server connection into G0/1/0 with an IP of XXX.XXX.XXX.150. Before the BVI was setup, this server could ping the Vlan interface (it had an IP of 145). After setting up the BVI as above, neither the router nor the server can contact the other. Any idea on what I am doing wrong?

Never mind. I saved the config and restarted the router. Works now.
