Vlan Configuration Option "ip-recv-mac-address" Not Working

MVP

Problem:

The VLAN configuration option "ip-recv-mac-address" causes Ping command to fail.



Diagnostics:

The Aruba switch does not respond to Ping command after configuring the ip-recv-mac-address Vlan option.



Solution

IP routing must be enabled when using the ip-recv-mac-address Vlan option. In the following example, Vlan 1 on switch Rack2sw1 is configured for the ip-recv-mac-address option. The Ping test fails until IP routing is enabled.

The configuration, verification, and testing associated with the diagram follows:

Testing with and without IP routing enabled:



Rack2sw1# ping 192.168.2.2 
Request timed out. 

Rack2sw1(config)# ip routing 

Rack2sw1# ping 192.168.2.2 
192.168.2.2 is alive, time = 2 ms 


Vlan configuration:

 

Rack2sw1# show running-config vlan 1 

Running configuration: 

vlan 1 
   name "DEFAULT_VLAN" 
   untagged A1-A24,B1-B24,C1-C24,D1-D24,F1-F24,J1-J4,K1-K4,L1-L4 
   ip address 192.168.2.1 255.255.255.0 
   ip-recv-mac-address 08002b-111111 interval 1 

Rack2sw2# show running-config vlan 1 

Running configuration: 

vlan 1 
   name "DEFAULT_VLAN" 
   untagged A1-A24,B1-B24,C1-C24,D1-D24,E1-E2,G1-G24,H1-H2,J1-J4,K1-K4,L1-L4 
   ip address 192.168.2.2 255.255.255.0
