I configured a Virtual WLC using VMware which is connected to a Nexus5K via Trunk. Show CDP displays the information about the vWLC and I also created a L3 interface on the N5K from where I can ping DGW and another WLC (5508 appliance) in the same VLAN as the vWLC mgmt IP. In addition to that, I can see the MAC of the vWLC in the N5K arp table (because of the L3 interface created in the N5K). However, I cannot ping the vWLC Mgmt Interface. Any ideas? Attached the information.
I created a vWLC running 188.8.131.52 because I am planning a test using Catalyst 9100.
vWLC Mgmt is connected to vlan 901
I configured an ISE VM pointing to same vlan 901 (pretending to be the WLC) and it worked fine. Attached the N5K trunk port connected to the VMWARE host running vWLC VM's (and testing ISE as well) on vlan 901.
switchport mode trunk
switchport trunk allowed vlan 200-600,901
spanning-tree port type edge trunk
spanning-tree bpduguard enable
channel-group 114 mode active
Ping from vWLC to its gateway or any other device on the same VLAN 901 does not work. BUT, the ISE VM I created to test connectivity vmware host --- > n5k (vlan901) and which is running on the same host/virtual switch as the vWLC, can ping multiple devices on that vlan 901.
I am still doing testing trying to find out the issue. thanks for the reply.
i am having the same issue WLC management ip address is not reachable and WLC cannot reach the DG, even though everything look ok interface port of the WLC is tagged with the management vlan and vlan tagged across all the switches.
did manage to find a solution can you share it please?
