route add default
routed on
options dns.domainname ????
options dns.enable on
options nis.enable off


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.
