Aruba 6300m SW

    Hi Everyone,
    I'm a newbie in this field, apologies in advance.

    I have an Aruba 6300M switch factory default settings. 
    What are the minimun steps to configure the switch to do a simple ping between two hosts connected to the 6300m?

    I have only vlan 1 and all its interfaces in access mode. Soy when I ping from host A to host B works smoothly. But when I ping from host B to host A doesn't work.
    I tried to configure an ip to interface vlan 1, and add the following command:

    # ip route 0.0.0.0 0.0.0.0 <default router ip on vlan 1>

    But still doesn't work. 
     
    What am I missing?

    Thank you so much

    Mariano

    Hello Mariano, since:

    "I have only vlan 1 and all its interfaces in access mode. Soy when I ping from host A to host B works smoothly. But when I ping from host B to host A doesn't work."

    Let me say Host A (connected to an Aruba 6300M administratively "up" port configured to work in Access mode <- here I presume that port is "untagged" on - say - VLAN 1 so that port has VLAN 1 as its Native VLAN), let me say that Host B is connected to an Aruba 6300M port configured exactly the same way as per Host A...then, if Host A and Host B - with their OS firewalls properly configured (ICMP Ping admitted) - belongs to the same Layer 2 Subnet, there is no reason to worry about Layer 3 Routing: Host A must be able to successfully ping the Host B and, vice-versa, the Host B must be able to do the same in the opposite direction toward the Host A. Check Hosts' Guest OS Firewalls first.

    Hi Parnassus, thank you so much for your answer.
    Your assumption about VLAN configurations is correct. With your answer I have enough to know that the problem isn't in the switch.

    Thank you!
