Find the source IP of Traceroute on my Brocade switch

Not sure why I don't see routing and switching on the topics to post my question there.


When I traceroute from a Brocade swithc with no source-ip indicated, how do I find out the IP address being used as the source. fyi, it's a huge switch and I'm not a Brocade expert. Thanks.

Re: Find the source IP of Traceroute on my Brocade switch

If this is not a SAN or Fiber Channel switch, and is one of Brocade IP type switches, your support has changed to Extreme Networks. 


If you have a SAN Fiber Channel switch, and you are using traceroute for the management port, and are logged in as root, the source IP will be the bonded IP address you have assigned to your switch during configuration.
