Nexus 5020 default route

Last updated on December 23, 2018

        I just setup a nexus 5020 and while I know it's primary purpose is to be used as an L2 device, according to docs, I should still be able to set a default route in the global routing table.  However, it does not seem to be working.
My setup is as follows:
Nexus 5020 <---> Core L3 device
I could not use the mgmt0 interface on the 5020 and have to set the mgmt ip on a vlan. I have the ports trunked between the 5020 and the core l3 device. I configured a default route on the 5020 however I am not able to ping out from the nexus nor reach the ip configured on the mgmt vlan from the outside world. Any thoughts as to what I may be missing?
