ICX 6450 24 port switch

I have a ICX 6450 24 port switch that I am trying to partition into 2 layer3 vlans. I created vlan 3 and vlan 13 and added untagged ports 3-12 to vlan 3 and 13 to 23 for vlan 13.

vlan 3 by port

tagged ethe 1/1/1 ethe 1/1/24

untagged ethe 1/1/3 ethe 1/1/12


vlan 13 by port

tagged ethe 1/1/1 ethe 1/1/24

untagged ethe 1/1/13 ethe 1/1/23

I wanted to add a virtual router to each vlan

interface ve 3

ip address

Re: ICX 6450 24 port switch

You are using the switch code now. If you boot from your layer 3 image, your software version (#sh ver) will be ICX64R07400.bin. Please look the link below for more information on booting into your layer 3 code.
