HP Procurve 5406zl Cant access via Management IP

Hi,

I have just started to build up a new 5406zl as a core switch but I'm having issues with the management ip.

I have setup VLAN99 as a VLAN for the switch, but I cannot ping it from any of my VLANS.

I can how ever access the switches via ip by telnet through the console cable connected to the 5406zl.
I can also connect from the uplink switches via console cable and telnet back to the 5406zl.

All my other VLANS appear to functioning as expect. e.g. DHCP is coming from 10.1.10.10 to 10.1.20.x range. I can ping 10.1.10.x from 10.1.20.x and vice versa.

What have I missed?

That's how it's supposed to work. There is no inter-VLAN routing for the management VLAN.

So how to I manage this switch via ip from my desktop?

SteveCommented:
yep. your config looks right to me. Management access is limited to VLAN 99 so the other VLANs canont see it by design.

You can't have your cake and eat it too. :-)  

If you want to manage the switch from other VLANs, you can't use the management-VLAN feature.  So remove the "management-VLAN 99" command and you'll be able to manage your switch from any VLAN.
