What is a Mac table?
March 09, 2010 5:49PM
sometimes when interface configured with a static IP address, which is not
correct, the host does not communicate to the port, and switch has no MAC
address. I've seen it just two days ago - had an Linux appliance with a
static IP address configured on the interface. Plugged interface to the
switch, port says "Connected", but no MAC address in the CAM table. After I
changed an IP address to whatever it should be for the VLAN - NIC started to
communicate, and MAC address appears on the port.
