"ip nat pool" invalid on IOS-XE

Hello everyone,

We are facing an issue which we haven't yet been able to solve. We are running a WS-C3650-24TS switch with IOS XE 03.06.04E and IPservices license. We have tried to implement NAT but somehow we are unable to create pools because the "ip nat pool" command is not available:

 

 

SW_3650#conf t
Enter configuration commands, one per line.  End with CNTL/Z.
SW_3650(config)#ip nat
SW_3650(config)#ip nat pool
SW_3650(config)#ip nat pool ?
% Unrecognized command
SW_3650(config)#ip nat pool 
                                    ^
% Invalid input detected at '^' marker.

SW_3650(config)#ip nat ?
  create       Create flow entries
  inside       Inside address translation
  log          NAT Logging
  service      Special translation for application using non-standard port
  translation  NAT translation entry configuration

SW_3650(config)#

We are not able to enable Paired-Address-Pooling (PAP) because the "ip nat settings" is not available as you can see on the above code.

 

Here are both the show version and the show license right-to-use commands output:

SW_3650#sh version
ROM: IOS-XE ROMMON
BOOTLDR: CAT3K_CAA Boot Loader (CAT3K_CAA-HBOOT-M) Version 3.56, RELEASE SOFTWARE (P)

SW_3650 uptime is 22 weeks, 1 day, 18 hours, 11 minutes
Uptime for this control processor is 22 weeks, 1 day, 18 hours, 14 minutes
System returned to ROM by reload
System image file is "flash:packages.conf"
Last reload reason: Reload command

Re: "ip nat pool" invalid on IOS-XE

Hi

sorry for short answer but you cant , switches have limited NAT functions that have only been recently introduceed to ios-xe , before that you had to have a router or at least a 6500 to do NAT functions , now they have introduced some functions but not all , NAT pools are not available on switches currently as far as im aware still to this date

 

You need a router for the pool function
