I have a bunch of servers that must talk with VMs with same subnet (let's say 10.10.10.0 255.255.255.0 vlan 10) that are on a different switch connected to a router that has a switching module.
The router port the VMs are hanging off is configured as:
10.10.10.10 255.255.255.0 - all VMs are currently pingable.
Basically these VMs on the route must speak with all other new VMs in same subnet that are located on different switches. I configured SVI 10 on each switch in the network and all SVI 10 are pingable.
I can't however ping the 10.10.10.10 interface IP on the router. I am trying to understand why someone put VMs on a non-trunk , no switchport with an ip of 10.10.10.10 in first place.
Should I removed the IP on this port, change it to trunk, and configure a subinterface with the same 10.10.10.10 address since all these VMs currently use 10.10.10.10 as their gateway? Please help I also need to make sure I don't really bring anything down at least for too long.
Please provide the router and switch configuration. Please explain that how to connected new VM switch? Is it on router switching port or direct to old VM switch?
