I have a 3750X that I am running some testing with. I have a VLAN interface that is using as it's primary IP and as it's secondary IP. See below:

interface Vlan10
 description Workstations
 ip address
 ip address secondary
 no ip redirects

I also have a DHCP pool that is handing out IPs from the 10.10.10.x network, but not the 192.168.10.x network.

I go to plug in my laptop to a port on the switch and it automatically assigns an IP from the 10.10.10.x network. When I attempt to statically assign a random IP of, I am unable to ping the gateway in this case,

Here are some factors:

-No other device is confirmed to be using

-When I run show mac-address table filtering the interface that I am plugged into, I see the laptop plugged in, which is good.

-When I run sh arp filtering the MAC address again, no entry is showing for the 192.168 or 10. network.

CHS_3750X_STACK#show arp | i 57ee

My question:

When I run a DHCP pool within the Cisco 3750X, am I unable to assign a static IP to my machine, even though it is within the subnet of what is stated on the interface VLAN?

  • Do you have IP routing enabled on the switch?

  • I do have ip routing enabled.

  • Please edit your question to include the full switch configuration.

    What you do is obfuscate any public addresses and passwords. Private addresses like you have are fine.

    You should answer the question and accept your answer (probably have to wait a couple of days to accept it), or you could simply delete the whole question.

This ended up being a configuration issue with the port I was plugged into with my laptop. The configuration on the interface was set to trunking rather than switchport access VLAN10. Once I set the interface to switchport mode access and switchport access vlan 10 then I was able to see the ARP entry along with being able to route outside the network.
