An S series switch can successfully ping an IP address that does not exist

If an S series switch (a non-S1700 switch) can successfully ping an IP address that does not exist, there are reachable routes between the switch and the non-existent IP address. You can check the routing table or capture packets to locate the non-existent IP address. You need to analyze the reason why the switch can successfully ping the non-existent IP address and check whether such fault is related to the service configuration.
