I'm trying to figure out why I am unable to ping an IP associated with a VLAN in a VRF from my VM's directly attached to the same VLANs. I can ping each interface on the switch directly using ping vrf centos 10.1x.1.1. I can see the mac addresses in the vlan on the 3750X stack as well so I know there is connectivity.

ip vrf centos
rd 10.10.1.253:1
!
!
interface Vlan3011
ip vrf forwarding centos
ip address 10.11.1.1 255.255.255.0
!
interface Vlan3012
 ip vrf forwarding centos
 ip address 10.12.1.1 255.255.255.0
!
interface Vlan3013
 ip vrf forwarding centos
 ip address 10.13.1.1 255.255.255.0
!
!
end

Here's a bit more on the config -

VMware Hosts attached via DVS to trunk ports on Cisco 5548's which are connected via port channel trunk to a 3750X Stack. the VRF config is on the 3750X stack since the 5548's do not have L3 enabled or licensed.

Any help would be appreciated.

  • Could the hosts have a firewall that is blocking pings? – Ron Trunk Jun 22 '15 at 14:15
  • Can you ping anything else from the VMs, or is it just the SVI you can't ping? – Keller G Jun 22 '15 at 15:00
  • I can ping other VM's on same VLAN (including other switches) just can not ping the SVI – Dean Jun 23 '15 at 11:27
