I'm trying configure a nexus 6001 version 7.0.5(N1) for NLB.
I've configured the static entry with "ip arp X.X.X.X aaaa.aaaa.aaaa" in vlan interface configuration but cannot pinging from the user network.
When I try to ping the address configured, I have the following output:
Device# ping X.X.X.X

I tried to put some other configuration as layer-2 configuration but commands are refused because not existing.
Can someone help me ?
Thanks in advance.
Thanks for your answer.
But already tried to follow this configuration guide but without success... when trying to configure:
vlan configuration 10 layer-2 multicast lookup mac
The layer-2 command seems not exist so I don't know what to do next... I've tried to search if there's another command that could replace but not found.
Any idea ?
Tried to configure but the layer-2 command doesn't work.
Here the output:
sh run | i feature
no feature telnet
Ok. Let's assume general case with NLB. You needed to configure static mac addresses and static arp entry:
mac-address-table static 0100.5e01.0101 vlan X interface ethernet 2/1 mac-address-table static 0100.5e01.0101 vlan X interface ethernet 2/2 interface VlanX ip arp 10.227.4.152 0100.5E01.0101
Try this solution.
I tried to configure the command mac address-table static on my interface port-channel5 on my backbone and it seems to work !
Tried with another server and working fine.
I only have another question, my server is a virtual machine on chassis. So the chassis is connected with a primary link (port-channel) and a backup link (eth). When I try to configure the static entry on the backup link, it replaces the static entry on the port-channel. Do you know if there's any solution for NLB keeps working if the port-channel is down ?
Thanks a lot.
Related question - how do you get to the interface/vlan configuration to enter those commands? I log into the fabric interconnect (UCS 6248UP) and cannot figure out how to navigate to interface configuration.
