    ping output confusing

    hi everybody,

    I have created two interface eth4.2 with the ip and interface eth5.2 with the ip

    if I ping using the command
    #ping -I eth4.2

    I get destination host unreachable

    but if I ping using this
    #ping -I

    I get the reply

    can anybody explain this behavior please ?

    Yeah, most likely SPANTREE is at work and see 2 routes to your host on the same network and is blocking the .4 interface.
