I am facing an issue that when I select L3 mode in Cisco SG 300 smart switch it is not accessing after restart.
Switch is working fine after restart but the IP it was configured neither pinging not opening in browser.
Please help as what can be the new IP after L3 mode selection?
- Check if you can access it to the default ip address : 192.168.1.254 , and or don't forget to save the configuration after changes ,
- I would suggest that you factory reset the device , then select L3 mode and configure according to your needs again,
- You should be able to use 192.168.1.254 , after factory reset , then select L3 mode again , and see that this can work ,
- By the way , if you still have difficulties knowing the IP address of the SG300 , being in L3 mode or not , connect it to another switch and on that switch issue the command show cdp neighbors detail , you should be able to see it ,
It would be helpful to know what else you have configured besides selecting L3. When operating in L2 it would use default-gateway to be able to reach remote IP addresses. When you change to L3 mode that command is ignored, so you need either some routing information about specific remote subnets or you need an default route configured.
