Can anyone tell me why inter vlan routing is working for all vlans except my newly created vlan 4/ I have an hp procurve 2610. Any help would be appreciated. I have basically this 1 switch with all unmanaged switches attached to the core. We have a second 2610 on port 28

Running configuration:

    Welcome to Stack Overflow. Unfortunately, this question is off topic for Stack Overflow. Server Fault might be a better site for this. But you'll need to be more specific about your question if you'd like an answer (there as well). For example, what troubleshooting steps have you tried? Can you ping the switch at using a device off port 25 configured with a static IP address? Is there a DHCP server on that subnet? How are the hosts configured? If you don't get ping replies, do you see arp entries? What exactly do you mean by "inter vlan routing" not working? – mpontillo Nov 2 '13 at 1:26
  • Mike sorry is it possible you can transfer it? Right now the arp table shows and I do not intend to have dhcp on this vlan. I also can ping the switch from internally as well as on the vlan from a host. What i mean by inter vlan routing is that all vlan networks are routing between each other and work. Except for vlan 4 – user19039 Nov 2 '13 at 2:03
  • No, I can't transfer it. I don't have the appropriate privilege level. Can you post a route table from one of the machines on VLAN 4 that cannot access the other VLANs? – mpontillo Nov 2 '13 at 4:10

You didn't provide enough information to answer you 100%. is the only route that knows where is. Everything that needs to route to needs a static route to If is the default gateway for the entire network, add a route on it.

Did you intend for DHCP requests to be relayed from VLAN 4? I noticed you have the following in VLAN 3:

ip helper-address

Maybe you need a similar configuration for VLAN 4, and a corresponding configuration on the DHCP server.

You might take a look at this documentation I found for DHCP relay on the HP site.

You should also provide route tables (for example, the output of netstat -rn, ip -4 route) on the machine on VLAN 4 which cannot reach the other VLANs.

  • No plan for ip helpers on vlan 4. everything is to be static'ed. – user19039 Nov 2 '13 at 2:01
  • Please don't answer off-topic questions (and you clearly knew this was off-topic, because you commented about it being so). Answering off-topic questions encourages other off-topic questions, even if the question gets closed. ("I know it's not a question for SO, but I can probably get an answer before it gets closed."). Instead, vote to close and migrate it; if you don't have sufficient privileges to do so, flag it for the moderators and ask them to do it. Thanks. – Ken White Nov 2 '13 at 4:18
  • @KenWhite, point taken. I didn't realize this was controversial; I figured if the question was migrated, it could still be helpful at the destination site. – mpontillo Nov 2 '13 at 5:11
  • This might help: Shouid I answer off-topic questions – Ken White Nov 2 '13 at 5:14
  • @KenWhite, the accepted answer says it's OK to answer questions you think will be migrated. ;-) – mpontillo Nov 2 '13 at 5:28
