I saw a problem yesterday that i need an answer for.
port security was placed on a switch in my office,and my dhcp server was not giving out anymore ip addresses. I had a bunch of computers that could not access the network.
I had a bunch of ports that were in a shutdown state so when i went to clear port security on the port it did clear but with in a few min the port went in to a shutdown state.
if a computer was not getting an ip address will the port go into a shutdown state?
Are the two things related?
