Can anyone assist me in figuring out why I cannot communicate outside the blades on a new VLAN I just created. My system currently has VLAN1 and VLAN2 all operating and passing traffic, internet. Now I add VLAN3 through the Cisco Network Assistant. Assign Gi0/20 to VLAN3 and my blades I assign to access all VLANs. I assign an IP address to VLAN3 10.10.10.1 255.255.255.0 and ip addresses on the same network to 2 of my blades. I can ping between the two blades no problem. When I try to ping 10.10.10.1 I get nothing. If I try to access the switch on the other side of the Blade which also has a vlan3 at 10.10.10.2 I get nothing. The external switch can also communicate with devices other than the blade switch as well. \n \n What am I missing here, anyone?
