VLAN interface down/down

Hi All

 

First post on here.  Created vlan, then vlan interface, assigned ports, and status says down/down.  I'm stuck.  I've read other posts on this topic.  Tried recreating everything, and still the same.  At one point yesterday I got it to say up/down, but now its back to down/down.  It is not admin down.  And it appears to be flapping.  Here is output from the show log command, and from show ip int brief, and from show vlan brief.  Thanks for any suggestions.

Yes, it is applied inbound.  The pcs are getting a good ip, dns, and gateway, but no internet access.  per the recommendation of Richard Burts, i'm gonna mark this issue as solved and start a new thread on the ACL.  

 

In summary, i think this is the solution Jon was saying and Rich echoed.  I didn't change any config on my end with this, but it is now working for some reason (gosh that's frustrating wish I knew why.)  At any rate, will post a new topic on the ACL.  thank you everyone.

 

SOLUTION:

 

create l2 vlan

creat l3 vlan interface

assign ports to vlan

a device must be on and plugged into the network so that you have an interface that is up in order for the vlan interface to come up, or the vlan must be on a trunk interface.  this will get the vlan interface to come up.

For the L3 interface (SVI) to be up/up you need one of the following - 

 

1) an access port allocated to that vlan that is up/up 

 

or

 

2) the vlan is added to a trunk link and that trunk is up/up 

 

If you have allocated ports to that vlan but none of them are up/up then the SVI won't be up. 

 

Jon

thanks Jon.  I will try to go plug something into one of those ports to see if it brings things up. 

 

I am still confused because at one point yesterday I blew everything away (vlan, vlan int, and default interfaced all four of the ports in the vlan).  then when i recreated everything (vlan, vlan int, assigned ports of the vlan) the status said up/down, so i thought i was on track.  now its back to down/down.

If you create the SVI but do not create the vlan in the vlan database it will show as down/down. 

 

If you create the SVI and create the vlan in the vlan database it will show as up/down. 

 

Jon

Okay, weird.  I for sure created the vlan, and the vlan interface, and it is showing as down/down.  

 

when I do show vlan brief I see the vlan, and when i do a show ip int brief i also see the vlan interface.

 

i'll try plugging something in again to see if that does anything.

Have you connected anything to the ports ?

 

Jon

yesterday we had a device connected to one of the ports in the vlan, and nothing came up. 

presently, there is nothing connected to any of the 4 ports in the vlan.

It seems you have some problem. Which switch is it? which version?  

Try to upgrade in case it is possible.

catalyst 9200.  it is up to date to my knowledge.

you have error-disable in these port so it down and finally make SVI down, 
show ip interface status and confirm that. 
the reason I think is there is Loop check 

show ip spanning-tree vlan X detail 
please share it here 

I do not believe "show ip spinning tree vlan X detail" is an actual command.

The ports are not in error-disabled state per the logs.

 

like this command 
cat# show spanning-tree vlan 1 detail

update: when i assigned the vlan to a trunk port the interface vlan came up.  I do not want that as a permanent config, so will remove it from trunk link.  I will go test it this aft by plugging in a physical device to one of the ports in the vlan and see what happens.  will keep you all posted.  thanks for the help so far!
