Re: FAS2240 IP not pingable

are you performing the SSH & accessing   oncommand system manager from workstation..?

 

due to security reason your firewall team may not allow ping protocol(icmp)

 

Please check with them

thanks Naveens for your reply.

 

but the ICMP is enabled and i got the below out from storage

 

routed status

 

RIP snooping is on
Gateway Metric State Time Last Heard
1 free gateway entries, 0 used

 

and when i ping from the storage to the workstation it gives (error=No route to host)

 

Re: FAS2240 IP not pingable

engage firewall team and test the ping feature 

 

so they can see where it is having issues.
