Controller as a router.

Hi,

We are using controller as a router also. We had some clients on that VLAN also. After upgrade from 3.x to 6.x, users cannot use network! If I ping the client or client ping the controller IP address (gateway address) it can work, otherwise client cannot access the network. The controller cannot see its mac address.



When the client works it works forever!!! I could not solve the problem. Why the controller cannot get arp address? Is it the clients are not coming from any aruba APs? I know that the contreller can route all the world, It has that capacity. So it is not capacity problem.



Please help. I move the interface to one of Cisco switch, temproraly.

Re: Controller as a router.

When I check "Make Port-Channel Trusted" and press Apply, the check goes. I reload the page and it is not checked. From the CLI;


#show interface port-channel 2


Port-Channel 2 is administratively up
Hardware is Port-Channel, address is 00:00:00:00:00:00 (bia 00:0B:86:0D:A5:83)

I did not check from CLI before. Anyway a cosmetic error. But important one.
