I have a H3C S5120 that was working fine up until yesterday afternoon.

Traffic does not seem to flow between ports.

I have my laptop connected to port 30 and I cannot ping the IP through the console.

There are 2 VLANs configured.  VLAN1 Interface IP 10.1.10.254  and VLAN2 Interface IP 10.0.0.1.  Through the console, I can ping both of these interfaces.

all ports are configured to permit both vlans.

DHCP does pass though.  I have a HP MSM710 Mobility Controller serving as a DHCP server and I do receive an IP when configured for auto but cannot ping the DHCP server after receiving my address.

Please help!!!!

What was the last thing you configured on it?

If it stopped working with no changes to the network, it might be a firmware issue (reboot, possibly upgrade).

Ended up being a loop.  Somone patched a switch in twice to the main switch.
