Static IP route

[ Edited ]

Hello Experts,

 

Device: Brocade 8770-4

 

I assigned a static IP address to interface management as follow:

device(config)# interface Management 1/1

device(config-Management-1/1)# no ip address dhcp

device(config-Management-1/1)# ip address 192.168.2.5/24

The ip gateway-address command will not be available on the device if the Layer 3 or Advanced Services license is

installed. In that case, use the following command sequence

switch(config)# rbridge-id 1

switch(config-rbridge-id 1)# ip route 0.0.0.0/0 192.168.2.1

 

My understanding is the above ip route is to define default gateway for the management interfaces. I need to configure a static route to forward the outgoing traffic to another device - 0.0.0.0/0 192.168.1.100 . How do I do that? Or do I need to configure default gateway for management interface using vrf mgmt-vrf?

 

Thanks,

Re: Static IP route

Hi,

 

The route you have configured will NOT be used for the management interface, to define a route for the management interface this should be configured under the management VRF under the rbridge-id

 

e.g.

rbridge-id 1
 vrf mgmt-vrf
  address-family ipv4 unicast
   ip route 0.0.0.0/0 192.168.2.1

 

To configure a route which will be used by the data plane this should just be configured under the rbridge-id which means it will be a member of the default VRF

 

e.g.

rbridge-id 1
 ip route 0.0.0.0/0 192.168.1.100

 

I hope this helps

 

Regards

Mick
