Cisco L3/L2 and Etherchannel Routing Not Working.

Hello Experts,

Can someone please take a look at my configurations and let me know why I'm not able to ping 200.1.1.2 from ALSW-9 and I'm not able to ping 100.1.1.2 from ALSW-10.?

This is despite that the etherchannels are up and running,

Group  Port-channel  Protocol    Ports
------+-------------+-----------+-----------------------------------------------
1      Po1(RU)         LACP      Et0/0(P)    Et0/1(P)    

Also routing to the ip addresses is in both tables for DLSW-4 and DLSW-5

      200.1.1.0/30 is subnetted, 1 subnets
D        200.1.1.0 [90/130816] via 172.16.1.2, 01:24:55, Port-channel1
DLSW-4#

      100.0.0.0/30 is subnetted, 1 subnets
D        100.1.1.0 [90/130816] via 172.16.1.1, 01:25:49, Port-channel1
DLSW-5#

And there full eigrp neighbor relationship between DLSW-4 and DLSW-5


DLSW-4#show ip eigrp neighbors
EIGRP-IPv4 Neighbors for AS(100)
H   Address                 Interface              Hold Uptime   SRTT   RTO  Q  Seq
                                                   (sec)         (ms)       Cnt Num
0   172.16.1.2              Po1                      11 00:06:18    4   100  0  5


DLSW-5#show ip eigrp neighbors
EIGRP-IPv4 Neighbors for AS(100)
H   Address                 Interface              Hold Uptime   SRTT   RTO  Q  Seq
                                                   (sec)         (ms)       Cnt Num
0   172.16.1.1              Po1                      12 00:06:59    1   100  0  5

I have attached the configuration and topology




You're help will be much appreciated.

Switches ALSW-9 & ALSW-10
You are using routing, not switching on those devices.
Routing table does not have entry for destination network and packets are dropped.
Issue # show ip route routing table will show only connected networks in routing table on those devices.
You have two choices:
- create routes (static or dynamic) on those devices (default route should be enough)
- disable routing

Hi Predrag,

Thanks for responding.

The routing tables do have routes to the networks

 200.1.1.0/30 is subnetted, 1 subnets
D        200.1.1.0 [90/130816] via 172.16.1.2, 01:24:55, Port-channel1

DLSW-4#

      100.0.0.0/30 is subnetted, 1 subnets
D        100.1.1.0 [90/130816] via 172.16.1.1, 01:25:49, Port-channel1

I want to ping 200.1.1.2 from DLSW-4 or ALSW-9 and the route exists on DLSW-4, but I can't ping the address.

In any case, I created dynamic routes with OSPF, see below and still unable to ping.

DLSW-4#show ip route ospf
Gateway of last resort is not set

      200.1.1.0/30 is subnetted, 1 subnets
O        200.1.1.0 [110/6] via 172.16.1.2, 05:29:40, Port-channel1
DLSW-4#


DLSW-4#show ip route

Gateway of last resort is not set

      100.0.0.0/8 is variably subnetted, 2 subnets, 2 masks
C        100.1.1.0/30 is directly connected, Vlan100
L        100.1.1.1/32 is directly connected, Vlan100
      172.16.0.0/16 is variably subnetted, 2 subnets, 2 masks
C        172.16.1.0/30 is directly connected, Port-channel1
L        172.16.1.1/32 is directly connected, Port-channel1
      200.1.1.0/30 is subnetted, 1 subnets
O        200.1.1.0 [110/6] via 172.16.1.2, 05:30:19, Port-channel1



Also, are you suggesting the problem maybe with the command 'ip route'?

Cheers

PredragNetwork EngineerCommented:
Wrong switches.
You do not have routes on ALSW-9 & ALSW-10.
That is my point. Packets are dropped on source switches (they never reach ALSW-4 or ALSW-5).

My assumption is that ip routing is running on all switches.
If routing is not running you would not be able to run EIGRP on ALSW-4 & ALSW-5, but since routing is not visible in running config on -4 ad -5 I guess it is like that on every device (running but there is no ip routing in output from show command).

Granular recovery for Microsoft Exchange

With Veeam Explorer for Microsoft Exchange you can choose the Exchange Servers and restore points you’re interested in, and Veeam Explorer will present the contents of those mailbox stores for browsing, searching and exporting.

 
PredragNetwork EngineerCommented:
If routing is used there MUST be matching route for packets, otherwise packet is dropped. That's why you need at least default route on ALSW-9 & ALSW-10 (or to issue no ip routing on those switches (default gateway will be used in that case)).

Member_2_7966113Author Commented:
Thanks again Predrag,

I do have default route on ALSW-9 & ALSW-10. Did you check out the configs I uploaded?

I will see if issuing the no ip routing has an effect

Member_2_7966113Author Commented:
Predrag,

Just so you I can ping 200.1.1.2 from vlan 200 on DLSW-5, but I can't ping the address from it's port-channel with address 172.16.1.2

PredragNetwork EngineerCommented:
You do not have default route, just default gateway, and commands must be issued on both devices.
ALSW-10
ip route 0.0.0.0 0.0.0.0 200.1.1.1
ALSW-9
ip route 0.0.0.0 0.0.0.0 100.1.1.1
Or no ip routing on both devices.

Any device without route will drop packets, routing must be end to end!

Member_2_7966113Author Commented:
OK.

So I have removed ip routing from both ALSW-10 & ALSW-9. And when I try to ping 200.1.1.2 from ALSW-9 I now get:
ALSW-9#ping 200.1.1.2
Type escape sequence to abort.
Sending 5, 100-byte ICMP Echos to 200.1.1.2, timeout is 2 seconds:
U.U.U


Just so I'm clear.

Are you suggesting that I remove default gateway and instead put in ip route 0.0.0.0 0.0.0.0 200.1.1.1 on ALSW-10?

If yes, won't I need to put back ip routing?

Predrag,

Still getting the same results with default route

ALSW-9#ping

Success rate is 0 percent (0/5)

ALSW-9#show ip route
Gateway of last resort is 100.1.1.1 to network 0.0.0.0

S*    0.0.0.0/0 [1/0] via 100.1.1.1

PredragNetwork EngineerCommented:
U.U.U typically means - no route to destination or ICMP ping is blocked

try:
debug icmp
 on both devices it will give you the clue

Hi Predrag,

I will have to revisit this tomorrow - my missus is getting annoyed with me.

I hope you're around tomorrow.

I created the same scenario, but without etherchannel, everything works as it should with configuration details that I suggested. Etherchannel should not make any difference.

Member_2_7966113Author Commented:
I also re-created the scenario without etherchannel with your suggestions and it worked.

Thank you.

I accidentally assigned myself the points.

In that case - I object, and assigning of points can be corrected.
