I'm a bit confused with the output of traceroute and ping on our Core switch. There is a printer on our network that is not always reachable. Sometimes we can ping it and sometimes we can't. It seems that we can always ping it from a device on the same VLAN but, devices on other VLANs can only sometimes ping it. Here is some output:

When you do a mac address traceroute, you need to use a mac address of another host on that vlan. I have found that it won't work if you try to use the switches interface mac address, because it will use the same mac address for each vlan interface. Also posting configs might help. And have you done cable testing? Start at layer 1 and work your way up.

HI, In the attached diagram from cisco site if we assume R101 and R102 are two DC having a layer 2 link and both are advertising same subnet (eg. 192.168.12.0/24) to the ISP i understand by using BGP metrics we can make one DC primary and other as se...
